This episode is an introduction to the podcast, Wake Up And Manifest. I chose the name because I want to inspire and empower you to wake up to your potential, your calling, your worth, your dreams and your authenticity.

Key takeaways:

I used to have a good-on-paper life, but I felt lost and unfulfilled. I was working long hours as a lawyer, dating the wrong person, and not living in alignment with my values or desires. I had a niggling feeling that there must be more to life.

While I was at University, I won an all-expenses-paid scholarship to study in Italy. I visited a small coastal village called Cinque Terre. It was summertime, and I remember sitting overlooking the ocean, having a fresh pizza and wine, under the stars.

In that moment I felt connected to the cosmos, and a deep knowing that magic exists, and we are way more powerful and supported than we know. I knew I had to stop living a groundhog day existence, and start living with passion and purpose.

A few years later I saw a poster for a philosophy class. It sparked something inside of me, so I went along and discovered a new world of wisdom and truth. I started meditating and elevating my mindset, and discovering my soul or intuition.

I also started learning about the power of manifestation. It was a huge lightbulb moment, because I realised that my impossible dreams were now possible because I had the Universe on my side.

I grabbed some sheets of paper and started to map out my dreams. I started to write down how I wanted to be an author, travel the world, meet inspiring friends, find love, increase my confidence and worthiness, be creative, and give my gifts to the world.

There is a beautiful quote by Coco Chanel. She said: “My life didn’t please me, so I created my life”.

And that’s what I did. I started following my values like freedom, creative flow, feminine magic, and inspiring others.

It’s such a sweet day when you wake up and realise that there is no rule book for life, what you were taught by society about conforming and playing small was wrong, and that you can begin to design your most fabulous authentic magical life, and in fact you must, because you never get this day back, and the world needs you in your fullest expression, abundance, passion, potential and magic.

I want you to know there is a different way of being in the world. You can get in touch with your soul, own your worth, and express your magic. You can become the highest version of you, and co-create your dreams. You are allowed to evolve. You don’t have to settle.

As Carrie Bradshaw says: “Refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies”. And by butterflies, I think she means your heart, purpose, values, self-expression and dreams.

If this all sounds a bit woo-woo to you, just remember you are on a giant rock hurtling through outer space. You are divine in origin, and miracles are here to support you. So why not make the most of this crazy adventure?

I believe in creating moments in your day to tune into your intuition and truth. And I hope this podcast, Wake Up And Manifest, can serve as something you tune into for that alignment and connection.
