It finally happened. After two less than stellar apartments I manifested one that makes my heart flutter and has sent me into a tailwind and vortex of interior design videos.
Before I dive in to how exactly I manifested my dream apartment in less than a week, yes, less than a week, let me start at the beginning.
I’ve moved around a lot starting when I went to college. Some places were a total miss, others were decent but nothing worth getting excited for. The current apartment I am in falls into the disaster category.
I’ve mentioned before that I lived in San Francisco for two years, and then moved to Los Angeles. Well, when I moved to LA, I was very freaked out about finding a place in the summer and basically took the first one I saw.
Without going into all the details, this apartment is the exact opposite of what I wanted. Which leads me to my first step!
1. Get Clear On What You Want and What’s Non-Negotiable
There are a ton of tools you can use in order to get clear on exactly what you want. My favorites are vision boards and scripting. I talk more about these in my other post How to Manifest Anything Into Your Reality
For a vision board, I just created a board on Pinterest and started pinning pictures of places that had the vibe I wanted my new apartment to have or specific features. This helped me see exactly what I wanted certain things to look like and helped me visualize what it would be like to wake up in my dream place.
Honestly, the most important part was deciding what I simply would not live without. In the past, I would settle for certain features that weren’t what I wanted. Who cares if the cabinets aren’t white, I can live without hardwood floors, the bathroom isn’t that small…etc. N-O. You are allowed to have every single thing you desire and there is a place out there that exists that has every single thing you have envisioned.
Your home is so much more than just a place you go to sleep at night. When you work for yourself this is the place you get ready for the day for, create content in, take clients in, which means it needs to make you feel supported in the goals you have set.
So get clear and decide on what you want and do not compromise. It is that or something better period.
2. Tour Places Before You’re Ready
Touring apartments isn’t just about seeing what is a good fit, checking out the grounds and amenities and filling out applications…it is about getting into a vibe. When you go to places you feel like you could never ever live, or afford, you begin to feel the vibrations of what it would be like to be there. At first, it might seem impossible especially if a place is out of your perceived price range but it is important that you push through the “How the hell could I ever afford something like this feeling?” and instead keep touring dreamy, luxurious places because when you keep doing this, it begins to normalize those kinds of places.
After the first couple of times of feeling blown away, maybe even a little uncomfortable, you will begin to see that these kinds of places feel normal. It will start to feel possible. When I started doing this, I began to get ideas for my business and as a result made more money. Enough money to get approved for my new apartment! I got this inspired guidance because I had decided on what I wanted, and when you are trying to manifest anything when you draw a line in the sand and you decide you want something and you’re going to do get it the universe gets behind you. You will be led to a way.
I think is one of the most important things I did in general to raise the standards for my life. When I was younger me and my friends would drive through Beverly Hills just to look at and imagine ourselves in the beautiful houses. We would go do things we could’ve done at home like grocery shop, get ice cream, go to the movies in Beverly Hills. I didn’t totally know what I was doing at the time, but I knew being around so much wealth, and such a different atmosphere than where I lived at the time could help elevate me and my standards and expectations for life. It worked.
So if you don’t do anything else on this list, you need to tour places before you think you’re ready. These places should have everything on your desires list and should not be limited to only things you think you can afford right now. Go big. When you commit, miracles happen.
3. Disprove Your Limiting Beliefs
I’ve talked about this in a lot of other posts because it is so important when you are trying to level up something in your life. When we are growing up, we get subconscious messages from our caregivers about how life works, and what things are available to us.
A lot of us have these around money and spending.
Growing up, I heard my parents say that you had to work long and hard when you were young in order to be able to enjoy the rewards later in life. This sent a message to me that being very successful very young wasn’t something that was possible. I found even after I had graduated college, I was till living in places that resembled college apartments. I hadn’t stepped into getting a place that felt more mature, and was suited for young professionals.
In order to let yourself receive what you desire, it is important you discover what these are for you. For me it was feeling like I wasn’t deserving yet of the kind of place I wanted because of my age, and also having a lot of trauma and negative associations with money.
In order to find yours, you can try this simple exercise:
Imagine your absolute dream home or apartment. Get very detailed. What does the floor beneath your feet feel like? What color is it? What kind of furniture do you have? What would your morning routine look like there? Does the property have a pool? A gym?
After getting very clear on all of that, ask yourself:
“Why can’t I have this now?” and notice what comes up.
Is it “I can’t afford something like that” or “I don’t deserve something like that” or “I wouldn’t know what to do with a place like that” Write these down without judgement.
Then, ask yourself: Do I feel safe to receive this?
Do you feel like you would be able to have it only for something to go wrong? Do you feel like if you had such a nice place members of your family would try to come stay with you because clearly you could afford to care for them? Do you feel like you could never maintain something like that?
When you discover these things and you have a list of them, go back through and disprove them. Why aren’t they ultimately true? For example the excuse that I couldn’t afford it wasn’t true. It is up to me to manifest more money and that is always in my control. I could take on more clients, I could launch a new offer, etc.
Decide, don’t back down, get into the vibe of what you want, disprove anything that says you can’t have it.
I hope this helps you so much on your journey to find THE place.
