I was sitting on the couch after having an intense yoga practice. Yoga tends to give me a body high that is almost unexplainable. When I can get my mind quieted, my body still, my body balanced, my body nourished, I flow into a feeling of limitlessness. What all this creates is a euphoric feeling of pleasure and possibility.
My mind becomes active with visualizations that I can only explain as a living dream. Instead of doing anything else I figured I would enjoy it. I was flipping through movies to rent, and decided on the surfing movie View From A Blue Moon starring John John Florence.
To be honest, I have shied away from surf movies because it makes me home sick missing the ocean waves and beach where I grew up. I was open to it today, and I started watching the stunning cinematography intently while I enjoyed my organic high.
I suddenly start getting flashbacks of sorts to who I was before all the alcohol, drugs, and toxic marriage. I could sense the little boy in me was awakening to tell me something. My awakening is an entirely different trip in itself and could be a story on its own.
I started getting those feelings of wanting to travel the world surfing in exotic places that I once dreamed. I started thinking about the places and wanted to visit, Bali, Indonesia, Sumatra, Solomon Islands, Austrailia, Tahiti, Mexico and on and on.
Then I started thinking about the life I am creating today. I noticed the similarities. I can write and connect anywhere in the world and no longer locked down in an office. The world is mine to discover and which I have an active part in creating.
My life today is about recording podcasts, writing, speaking and I want to do it internationally. My life is already a dream, but I have much bigger plans for my sons and me. I want to take my service to the world and bring my boys along for the ride.
Much of my personal development these days is centered on creating the life I want for my sons and me. I have goals. I set intentions. I write. I draw. I perform visualizations. All to help me know what I want from life. These steps assist in a way that makes attaining our desires happen supernaturally.
Then it hit as though God’s energy was running through my veins. I had clarity. I have euphoria. I had a realization that all the work I do on manifesting my future today was the same thing I did as a kid.
I manifested moving my family to the surf I dreamed of! I never understood as a child how I was “lucky” to get to move where I wanted. The world told me everything is either a coincidence or the that the lucky ones get what they want.
What I now see as the creating and manifestation process started in the fourth grade. I was living in the middle of the Mohave Desert on the Colorado River. I would consume my time with skateboarding and waterskiing.
One day I saw a single Surfer magazine on my grocery store magazine rack. I didn’t have any money, so I hid it because I never saw it before. I grew up on the river water skiing and skateboarding so naturally in was more than intrigued with the magic of surfing.
Luckily I hid it well enough and came back a week later with money likely stolen from my parents change tray. I remember studying each picture and I even called or wrote all the advertisers asking for catalogs and stickers.
I used to go to sleep thinking of those images. I had posters and stickers on my walls. My mind became consumed with creating the imagined movies of people surfing. I had not ever seen a surf movie or watched someone surf, but I created something magic in my mind.
Since I was a water skier, I was the first one on the river to have a Skurfer. The Skurfer came out in the 80’s, and it was a water ski/surfboard. They would later become what you would know as a wake board.
Skurfing was the closest I could get to surfing. I created the intention by physically putting action into what I wanted to accomplish. A practice of sorts.
If you read my writing, you would know I used to be a bit obsessive. The obsession caused many of my life’s problems. However, this particular obsession is an example of creating something positive I suppose, but without a doubt, my thoughts were centered around surfing from that point forward.
I would draw for hours surfing pictures I had all over my wall. There would be a tropical island, a fire with a shark on a stick over the fire. There would be a few surfboards stuck in the sand.
I must have drawn those pictures a hundred times, over and over.
A major part of the manifesting process is writing goals or drawing what we want to create in our lives. I did both when it came to the manifestation of moving.
The year before we moved I wrote an essay for my seventh-grade class about Skurfing, and many of the analogies I used related to surfing, the board, the water.
Looking back at my journey I realize that I was focused on surfing and living by the beach. I was not focused on the actual moving part. The intention was to live at the beach and surf. I find it fascinating that is exactly what happened. It was as if I had the power to desire something and I don’t have to figure out how to get there.
In my adult life, it was like I was scheming to force the universe to my will. This caused nothing but falling short and draining me. I am learning to live like that kid again and the universe will give me exactly what I want.
These are the things I do today and can manifest the parts of my life I desire. My business is merely a manifestation of my thoughts. My house is a manifestation. The car I drive is a manifestation of my thoughts. Even the people who I have around me are all manifested.
As I had this revelation, I messaged my best friend about this insight and as I look up the surf movie starts the Brazil section where she was born. We live in the spiritual world, and I see these signs in a lucid living dream with endlessly connected possibilities.
I don’t attach an expectation, but I see the incredible ride I am on. I have these experiences nearly every day. I often wonder how I can put this in a pill or show people how to live a life in their infinite potential through my coaching.
I have found something where the sounds are deeper and brighter. The colors are different. The connectedness to people is deep. The world at large blows my mind each moment as I feel the universe’s infinite energy and love.
The strange thing is that we can create our realities. I have a choice to manifest scarcity or abundance. I can choose to let God into my heart and spread his love, or I can focus on negativity.
I want to raise the vibrations of those around me. I want to serve and show others how to live an abundant life. Do you ever sit back and think I wish I could do that? You then settle why your cannot and make excuses due of your job, family, economy or other circumstances.
I teach mindset and that we can create any life you desire. I was a little boy who moved his family of six a mile from the beach by manifesting his future.
If we asked the kid inside, what life do we want, would they want the life we have today? What can we do to live our dreams and change the world?
If you feel like you are called to something bigger hit me up for a coaching conversation in how I can help you create the future you desire.
Please comment if you think YOU have the power to create the impossible.
