These past weeks at Sacred Women’s Business have been amongst the busiest on record which is ironic considering I’ve just laid it all bare at a huge local event called #balancingthebusy. The goodie bags alone were worth showing up for! Check out this bounty –

An audience of 250+ women (and one or two guys) all gathered together at Bangalow A+I hall to hear from some of my favourite teachers and mentors (including Dr. Libby Weaver, Jacinta McEwen and Rachel Zinman). It was an honour to share the stage with women I have admired and looked up to for so many years. Speaking on the topic of ‘Career Fulfilment as a Path to Wellness’ is one of the most fulfilling things I think I could have been asked to do, despite my nerves. It’s something I love coaching on, teaching on and best of all, speaking on. So despite being uber-busy, there was something magical about realising that my manifestor is not broken. I used to question whether it was all the time. Read on if you’re not sure what I’m talking about.

If you’ve been doing heaps of Law Of Attraction work and it hasn’t been working, and you’re left wondering if your inner manifestor is broken, you’ll love this week’s article.

I spent years thinking that the laws of attraction worked for everyone except me.

I thought I was an exception to the rules contained within all the teachings, because every time I’d try and make something happen, I’d create some kind of crisis or drama that would push me down, sometimes even lower than where I’d been to begin with. I also suffer from clinical depression, so this would place a double whammy on any sense of failure around my ‘positive thinking’ shortcomings.

If you haven’t got your hands on a copy of ‘The Big Leap’ by Gay Hendricks, it’s a must read. You can pick up your copy here.  Even better still, email me (by hitting the reply button on this email) to arrange your 30 minute complimentary coaching chat and if you decide to sign up for one of my coaching packages, you get a copy as part of your awesome, life-changing book pack which comes as a bonus with every coaching package I sell.

For a limited time, I’m also gifting the best journal for 2016 out there, The Gratitude Diary 2016 to every new client who comes on board in October and November.

In ‘The Big Leap’, Gay Hendricks speaks about the concept of upper limiting. (You can pick up his book here at my affiliate link). We have a set-point where we feel most comfortable. If we exceed that set point with something super-dooper fabulous, we’ll often self-sabotage in some way to hold ourselves back to where we’re most comfortable. Self sabotage can show up as an event that is seemingly out of our control, in fact that’s how it loves to surprise us most. In my case, self-sabotage takes many different guises. It’s why I always felt like my ability to manifest was always seriously compromised.

Ever felt that way? Have you been finding that all the law of attraction hype is failing to float your boat?

Or that your powers of manifestation are so erratic that they don’t feel reliable?

Or that your clinical depression precludes you from all the ‘positive thinking’ you’re meant to be doing?

If so, read on to find ‘The Ten Reasons why Your Inner Manifestor is Broken {and How to Fix It}

I hope you also enjoy the photographic highlights from last Saturday’s event ‘Balancing the Busy’ below too. Plus a special invitation to join me live again soon.


{and how to fix it}

When you listen to the experts in Law of Attraction, you often hear the word manifestation being used to describe your ability to create what you want, when you want it. It’s tempting to believe it, until you start having a battle with your inner demons. You know, the ones that tell you that unless you stop having negative thoughts, you won’t have a good, rich life etc. Perhaps you’ve been trying to manifest something for-absolutely-friggin-ever. And it just doesn’t seem to be materialising. Why does this happen? Is your manifestor broken? Or is something else going on that you should know about. The fact is, a lot of the so-called experts are recycling what they’ve heard, without really putting their solid experience into proving it. Here are ten reasons why your inner manifestor is broken and how to fix it.

  1. Your manifestor is not broken after-all

There are certain laws that govern the universe and they’re as sure as gravity. Your ability to create favourable circumstances can never be taken away from you. It is as much your birthright as your ability to breathe. Thinking that something is wrong with you is the first step to reclaiming your glorious power to co-create a magnificent life. Let’s start by saying, you are perfect and whole and complete, just the way you are. And a manifestor is impossible to break because it is an integral part of who you are as a divine expression of the divine itself.

  1. You’ve stopped focussing on your Big Vision and let circumstances win

Many beautiful, capable, intelligent, amazing women can’t understand why they’re constantly stuck in the quagmire of stuff-that-needs-doing and can’t rise to the glory of being the Queen of their domain. That’s exactly what needs changing m’dear. You need to keep a consistent and dedicated focus on your big vision and stop focussing on all the itty-bitty details that leave you gasping for air. What we focus on expands. If you’re forever focussed on itty-bitty and sometimes irrelevant stuff, that’s all you tend to get. I see and hear women focussing on what’s wrong with their present circumstances all the time and becoming so lost in the details of why things are not happening for them. They get lost and caught up in their present circumstances. If this is the case, it’s a sign it’s time to start ‘chunking up.’ Start thinking of the bigger picture, of what you’d like to achieve in 5, 10, 20 years. The world has gone crazy on instant gratification. True grace shows up in the big ‘heaven meets earth’ scenarios that place our dreams in motion. It takes time, it takes patience, it takes substance. It can’t be rushed.

  1. You’ve been too hung-up on time

If there’s one thing that the standard SMART goal setting is, in my opinion, completely remiss on, it’s the whole timing thing.

Things manifest in their own good time.

The best things take longer than what we expect them to. And sometimes they come in a flash, instantly.

About 4 years ago, a student came up to me after I’d finished teaching a yoga class and said that I reminded her of Dr Libby Weaver. I went and had a look at Dr Libby’s work (she’s done TED talks) and realised that I had to one day meet her and that she would play a significant part in my work. On Saturday, as I was sharing the stage with her, I was reminded of this early introduction and how it had planted a seed in my mind. I knew our meeting would happen one day, but there was no time limit. It may not have happened as quickly as I would have liked, but the fact that it happened was significant because it felt like time was completely irrelevant at the time that it actually happened. On top of that, my co-writer for Mothermorphosis Dr Oscar Serrallach ( has just been quoted in one of Libby’s latest books. In it, she endorses his work. Which is exciting for this particular project. A series of seemingly unconnected coincidences and serendipities has come to pass to allow this connection to feel effortless, easeful and pre-destined. There has been no push.

Here’s the thing, you don’t know whether your manifestation is going to come to pass in an unexpected way until you actually find yourself living it. A series of coincidental events that often don’t look anything like you expected them to look come to pass. Life sets a chain of events in motion that magically line you up the whole way to the outcome. The secret is to not get lost in the details.

20 years ago, I had a flash of insight that I would write books. At the time I thought I’d become a fiction writer, because creative writing was my thing. But even after years of writing, I still wasn’t published and I wasn’t enjoying it. I wanted to socialise and the lonely life of writing wasn’t good for me in large doses. It wasn’t until I was invited to be part of an anthology that became a best seller, that I realised I was destined to write non-fiction and speak about it. It’s been a long time coming, but the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Now, I get to write and coach and teach and speak. I’m certain these things wouldn’t have been half as fulfilling or as serendipitous if I’d followed the path of a fiction writing.

  1. You’ve had an expectation it will look a certain way

It’s never going to look just like you thought it would. Don’t be deceived by appearances. Your heart knows when something is a yes or a no. So tune into your internal yes or no and don’t look outside yourself for the answers. It rarely if ever looks like you expected, but it will often be better. That’s the coolest thing ever.

  1. You’re not listening

There’s a saying that goes like this: we have 2 ears and one mouth, so we need to listen twice as much as we speak. When we truly listen, listen deeply, listen sincerely, we receive guidance all the time. Stop and listen, immerse yourself in stillness every single day. Often, paying attention to the present moment is all you need to do to discern your right path. And when you do arrive at that magical destination it’s a curious thing how you realised you’d been cleverly guided there by your deep bone wisdom all along, you just needed to listen to it more often, with more faith and more sincerity.

  1. You stopped dreaming

This has a lot in common with number 2 but it deserves its own category. Because dreams support you to be in your right brain, that intuitive, creative, artistic and feminine side of the brain. When you get too focussed on facts and figures, too caught up in the minutae, you stop really ‘feeling’ your dreams. This is even more of a trap for the highly intelligent yet sensitive souls out there. Because if you’re both intelligent and sensitive, you’re likely to switch from your kinaesthetic, intuitive feminine feeling body, over to your auditory-digital, highly logical and almost robot-like left brain just to numb some of the pain of feeling so deeply. Learning how to dream again, how to use your artistic and creative imaginings is key. Engage a creative arts expression coach to support you if you know your creativity could use some work. Aesha Kennedy from BlossOm is a genius at unblocking your creative blocks. You can check out her work here:

  1. Something’s not in Alignment

When something’s not meant to be, no amount of will-force and dream-creation can make it happen. There are certain things that you’re not meant to be having, doing or being. This is usually a sure intervention from grace so be relieved. I remember having a massive crush on a guy and praying that we would be together. Years later, I met the woman he ended up with after she’d escaped from his violent and controlling ways. What a relief those prayers never came true for me.

  1. The tipping point hasn’t been reached

Your threshold for change is 50/50. You only have to be focussed 51% of the time on the big vision of change and be in the spirit of its co-creation for the tipping point to work in your favour. The other 49% might still be those tricky, devilish negative and stormy thoughts, but they’re not going to dominate the change you’re after.

  1. There’s something even better in the wings

This is by far my most favourite manifestor tip. If it’s not manifesting itself yet, it’s because something even better is waiting for you. So go faithfully in the direction of your big dreams and big vision, and if it doesn’t turn out the way you expect, expect the unexpected to be even better for you than what you imagined.

  1. You’ve missed two key ingredients

Your ability to have faith and trust create the unseen bridge between where you are and where you want to go. This is a timeless bridge, so be sure to enjoy the view of the flowing river on your way across.

Now go forth and be the powerful creator you have every right to be!

I’ve been doing more teaching and training alongside coaching lately, this time on a Yoga Teacher Training in Byron Bay. There is something so precious about spending time with serious and dedicated yoga practitioners. There’s nothing more fascinating to me than the body and how it contains all of our deep wisdom and is a marriage between science and spirituality. I could never get bored of exploring the science of consciousness.

    There is something even better waiting for you if what you’ve been manifesting has not yet happened. I think this is important to remember. As usual, Lisa has hit key points as to why we may not be reaching that dream or goal. Trust and belief are keys. I think that should be #1 rather than #10. Thanks for the good reminders.

      thanks Virginia, you’re so right – trust and belief are keys and I’m pleased that this post was helpful for you. Big hugs, Lisa xx
