How to Manifest a Marvellous Year: Free Video Workshop

In this video workshop, I show you how to manifest a marvellous year. You’ll get clarity, direction, inspiration and enthusiasm for the next twelve months as you:

  • Decide which areas of life you want to focus on.
  • Set a list of meaningful goals that you really want to achieve.
  • Break these goals down into doable steps.
  • Use a metaphysical tool called creative visualisation that will enable you to start manifesting each of your goals today.
  • Find out how you can work towards all of your goals while still remaining in a state of inspiration and flow.

This is a powerful process I do every year. It’s easy and fun to do. It’s way more effective than making new years resolutions. I recorded it at the start of 2015, but it can be done anytime throughout the year – whenever you’re ready to re-energise, refocus and begin a new phase.

What is manifesting? Metaphysical manifesting is the art of bringing something into existence by first imagining it in the mind’s eye. When used alongside other self-empowerment strategies (such as raising your vibration), manifesting helps you achieve your goals more easily and gets you better results.

Tips for doing the workshop:

  • Take your time to do each step properly, particularly step 4, the creative visualisation process.
  • Pause the video while you complete each step.
  • Press play again when you’re ready to move on.
  • The entire workshop should take you about two hours.
  • You can work through it over a number of sittings.
  • Put some inspiring tunes on in the background.
  • Ask your spirit guides to be present to help you manifest most awesomely.

How to Raise Your Vibration

how to raise your vibrationWould you like to have a stronger connection to spirit, more positive thoughts, better emotional states and improved physical health? If so, then you need to raise your vibration.

What is a Vibration?

Your ‘vibration’ is a fancy way of describing your overall state of being. Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Even things that look solid are made up of vibrational energy fields at the quantum level. This includes you.

Indeed. From a metaphysical perspective, you’re a ‘being’ composed of several different levels of energy: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Each of these levels have a vibrational frequency, which combine to create your overall vibration of being.

Higher Vibrational States of Being

When it comes to vibrations, there are higher frequencies and lower frequencies. This is true for vibrations of being too. Lower vibrations of being are associated with disempowering thoughts, negative emotions, poor health and little or no spiritual awareness. A human being of an extremely low vibration would be someone like Hitler. Higher vibrations of being, on the other hand, are associated with empowering thoughts, positive emotions, good health and strong spiritual awareness. A human being of an extremely high vibration would be someone like the Dalai Lama.

What’s more, is that like attracts like. The lower your vibration of being is, the more likely you are to attract circumstances to you that mirror this. Frustrating situations…  difficult people… that sort of thing.

raise your vibration

So what you want to do then, is raise your vibration. You’ll then start to attract more positive experiences, enjoy better health, experience more positive emotional states, think nicer thoughts and obtain a stronger sense of spiritual connection. This will all have a positive knock-on effect and it’s up the awakening ladder you go.

So, how do you raise your vibration? It all sounds well and good in theory, but how do we do it in practice?There are a multitude of ways and if you’re on the path of awakening and transformation, you’ll inevitably find the most effective methods for you. In the meantime, I’ve created a list of some of the things that work for me. Try them out for yourself, adapt them to suit your own needs and repeat over time. Happy awakening!

How to Raise Your Vibration in Practical Ways

1. Find an exercise you enjoy and slot it into your everyday routine so it’s easy for you to do.

Exercise keeps you fit and toned and the movement gets chi circulating around your body. It also helps you to ground and gives you an opportunity to clear mind chatter. You don’t have to visit the gym five nights a week or train like an Olympic athlete, just find a physical activity you enjoy and build it into your routine in doable, repeatable ways.

2. Meditate.

Meditation helps you become more conscious of your thoughts, which in turn helps you to break bad habits. It also creates space for inspiration and spiritual awareness to come through. Again, you don’t have to meditate like a yogi or a Zen monk, simply set aside five minutes (the length of a TV ad break) each day, sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and practice resting in the space between your thoughts.

3. Be aware of what you watch, listen to and read.

Every form of media has a vibration. Does what you watch, listen to and read dramatise or glamorise a lower vibrational way of life? How does it make you feel whilst you’re engaging with it? What kind of an impression does it give of human beings and the world we live in? Include more higher vibrational forms of media in your life with inspirational, educational or transformational messages. Remember that everything is energy, so be mindful of the frequencies you’re submerging yourself in.

4. Drink lots of water.

Water is a form of energetic life force. Drinking plenty of it throughout the day (filtered, preferably) will help your body flush out toxins and keep your energy levels and vibration nice and high.

5. Spend some time in nature every day.

It’s easy to get caught up in today’s world of information and forget the natural world. Whether it’s a bush walk, a stroll along the beach or a quick half hour walk through the local park on your way home, getting out into nature each day will help you clear your mind, ground, become more present and remember you are part of a beautiful, living, interconnected planet.

6. Eat fresh, healthy, wholesome food.

Along with containing nutrients, food has an energetic vibration to it. Choosing healthy, fresh, whole foods over processed, frozen, stored or chemically altered will help you raise your vibration. If you can’t afford organic, at least buy free range. Swap junk food snacks for healthier alternatives. Always read the labels and know what you’re putting into your body.

global-awakening-humanity7. Get some form of energy healing and re-balancing every couple of months.

Reiki and shiatsu are both great modalities for healing, rebalancing and promoting vibrational change in your life. Find a good practitioner and commit to going every couple of months. You’ll always feel better afterwards and be glad you did.

8. Take at least one step towards your soul’s task every day.

Even if you just get some ideas down or do some planning. Working towards your soul’s task each day will help you feel happier, more fulfilled and content that you’re doing what you came here for. If you don’t know what your soul’s task is or want some direction and structure with how to discover your life purpose, find a good coach who can help you.

9. Create a higher vibrational home or sanctuary-like space for yourself.

It’s important to have a space where you can be peaceful and creative. If you live with others and can’t change the whole house, just focus on making one room your higher vibrational hangout. Buy some salt lamps, candles, plants or crystals and decorate your space so it feels peaceful, inspirational and supportive. You might even like to create an altar area that serves as a focal point for your spiritual awakening. Put some meaningful objects on it and light a candle now and then, setting an intention for what you want to create next upon your path.

10. Set goals and consciously plan your week ahead.

Take half an hour each week to consciously plan your week ahead. Set an overall intention and specific goals for each area of your life. Visualize yourself achieving your most important goals and play the images through your mind like a film. Then, break each goal down into doable steps and put the steps in your diary. Make sure you’re making the most of your life and doing the things that matter to you.

11. Actively develop your spiritual awareness.

Whether its learning how to communicate with your spirit guides, joining a spiritual development circle or simply taking time to reflect on the spiritual dimension more often, developing your spiritual awareness will remind you that you’re connected to an all-encompassing force and that there’s a much bigger reason as to why we’re all here.

12. Heal and let go of the past.

Most people go their whole lives without ever clearing out the cobwebs and as a consequence prevent themselves from living a happy and fulfilled life. If you feel you might have unresolved emotional patterns or negative belief systems from your past, find a good practitioner who can help you work through them over a number of sessions.

13. Practice forgiveness and compassion.

Before forgiving someone, make sure you’ve re-established any boundaries that were crossed and communicated this to them. Sometimes we also need to allow time and space before we’re ready to forgive someone. You don’t ever have to allow people back into your life that you don’t want in it, but by remembering that everyone is only acting from their current vibration, you can find a way to let go of resentments or anger you might be carrying towards others.

14. Don’t blame your circumstances for your vibrational shortcomings.

Sure, a home and job that supports and encourages a higher vibrational way of life is always preferable, but for a lot of people this just isn’t possible. You must therefore take full responsibility for your awakening and transformation in the face of lower vibrational energies and triggers, and put strategies in place that support you. If you can’t do this, what hope does the world have?

15. Remember that it’s all about balance.

You don’t have to turn vegan, give up alcohol or get dreadlocks to live a more higher vibrational way of life. Just take doable, regular steps and apply the 80/20 rule.

16. Keep going!

Transformation is a gradual process with a few intense shifts along the way. It’s inevitable there will be times when you slip back into your old ways and feel like you’re going two steps forwards and one step back. Go easy on yourself during these times, get the learnings, refocus and get back on your way again. Whether it’s in this lifetime or the next, you’ll get there eventually, and in the end it’s really about the journey anyway.

How to Discover Your Soul’s Purpose


Discover Your Purpose & Soul Task

Deep down, you know there’s something special you’re here to do. Whether you want to call it your life purpose, soul’s purpose, your passion, your bliss or your soul’s task… it’s much more than a career or a job you enjoy; it’s your life’s work.

It’s that mission or project that inspires you. It’s the work you feel called to do. It’s the role that you and only you alone can do, based upon your unique journey through this life, what you learn along the way and the obstacles you overcome.

Indeed. When you discover your soul’s purpose and start working towards it every day, your life becomes infused with meaning; you feel happy that you’re expressing you’re true self and deeply fulfilled that you’re living authentically.

how-to-discover-spiritual-purposeWhat is a Soul’s ‘Purpose’?

It’s believed by some shamans, mystics and healers that before we’re born, we meet with our spirit guides and decide what we’d like to tackle next as part of our overall ascension. We then choose a family and life circumstances that give us the best chance of carrying this out.

That’s right, we choose our families and life circumstances. Some people find this difficult to believe… our life circumstances and families often don’t feel all that supportive.Yet it’s precisely these energies that are required to give us the necessary learnings and experiences we need in order to carry out our purpose. As we move through life, we continue to attract situations and people that support us in carrying out our purpose, provided we remain self-aware, follow our heart and take action accordingly.

spiritual-purpose-awakening-toHow do you live your soul’s purpose?

The simplest way to understand the process of living your purpose is to think of it in two phases. I call these phases initiation and leadership.

Phase One – Initiation

The first phase involves a somewhat challenging process of initiation, in which you awaken to the possibilities of who you are and master certain skills, insights and understandings.

This phase isn’t easy. Once you have discovered your soul’s purpose, there can be doubts, frustrations, setbacks and lots of time wondering if you are really meant to be living your purpose at all, or if you should just stick to an easy job in the system.

The trick is to take one step at a time and keep going. Nothing worth having in life comes easy, and as you undergo this initiation phase, the universe will give you everything you need to raise your vibration and transform into the person who can carry out the second phase.

discover your spiritual purposePhase Two – Leadership

The second phase of living your soul’s purpose is where you apply what you’ve learnt and who you’ve become during the first phase to give back to the world. This role is unique to everyone. Whether you become some sort of leader, activist, social or spiritual entrepreneur, artist, teacher, coach, guide, practitioner… the second phase of living your purpose will be a fully self-expressive role and suited to your particular personality.

Like the first phase, the second phase of living your soul’s purpose comes with its own set of challenges. You’ll go through a gradual process of learning and refinement, but you will be well equipped to manage this, and if you remember that the entire process of living your purpose is really one of spiritual evolution and transformation, you’ll find a way to keep going, even in the trickiest of times.

So, how do you discover your soul’s purpose?

At some level, you already know what your soul’s purpose is. The following questions will help you get more clarity. I’ve used them quite successfully with my clients over the years and I highly recommend that you invest 45-minutes now or in the next few days to do this important self-discovery work.


Simply grab a pen and paper, spend three minutes answering each question in turn and write down as much as you can during that time. Trust your intuition and have fun.

1. What do you enjoy learning about and what are you interested in?

2. What types of books, magazines, documentaries and websites do you like to read, watch and engage with?

3. What groups, clubs or organisations are you a member of?

4. What ideas and topics do you enjoy thinking about?

5. When you were younger, what did you like pretending to be in games that you played and why?

6. If you had all the money you’d ever need, what would you still do for free?

7. What are your skills and what are you particularly good at?

how-to-discover-your-purpose-18. Which question do you spend lots of time reflecting on or thinking about? Or if there was one question, what might it be? For example: How can I be happy? How can I raise my consciousness? How can I stand in my power? How can I uncover the truth? Tweak it until it feels right and resonates with you.

9. What message would you most like to share with the world?

10. How can you best give back to the world and help make it a better place?

11. Reflecting on all your answers, what might your purpose be?

12. What might the first phase (initiation) of your purpose involve? What skills might you have to learn?

13. What might the second phase (leadership) of your purpose involve? How can you help others?

14. What are you going to commit to doing now as a result of this?

Well done. Hopefully you’ve now got more clarity on what your purpose is.


Living your soul’s purpose isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen overnight. I’ve been living mine for several years and it’s still incredibly challenging. But for all of that, nothing comes close to the sense of reward I get from being able to do what I’m most passionate about every day. I love being able to walk my own path through life, doing work that inspires me and that I believe helps makes the world a better place. If everyone on this planet took this approach, imagine how different life could be. So without further ado, I’d like to suggest that you discover your soul’s purpose and start living it today.

Why You Should Discover Your Spiritual Purpose

In The Twelve Attunements, Sophie discovers she has been given a unique task by a transcendental being called El-Quan-Tem. Realising this is her true spiritual purpose, Sophie commits to doing whatever it takes to carry out her task.


Discover and Live Your Purpose

Would you like to know how to discover your purpose? We all have one. It’s the thing or reason that drives us and it’s what’s most important to us to do during our lifetime. It might be to inspire others, to promote awareness or to stand in your power and help others do the same. When you discover your spiritual purpose and start working towards it, you allow greater levels of joy and fulfillment into your life.

In order to successfully carry out your spiritual purpose, you must raise your vibration and transform yourself. Then, once you have created a strong foundation, you can use your skills and knowledge to give back to the world and help do your bit for global awakening too.

Specific examples of spiritual purposes might be:

“Grow spiritually and help others do the same.”

“Deepen my connection to the planet and educate others to do the same.”

“Stand in my power and guide others to do the same.”

spiritual purposeIt’s one thing to discover your spiritual purpose, but quite another to understand how you are going to carry it out. You need to find your own unique expression, which will involve a process of trial and error. A good place to start is with the things you enjoy the most.

Have a think about your spiritual purpose. Do you know what it is? Would you like to find out? Are you working towards it as much as you can?

Wherever you’re at with your spiritual purpose, remember it’s a gradual process with many ups and downs along the way. Also remember that the universe would never give you a purpose you couldn’t achieve… so keep going and enjoy the process. After all, in the end it’s not really about achieving your purpose, but in how you transform along the way.
