Keep Open To Serendipity — Follow Your Heart

Three Blessings That Are A Result of Saying Yes

Do you ever find yourself struggling with obstacles and limitations getting in the way of having the life of your dreams? How do you know when to surrender, have blind faith, and fully commit to taking the leap towards more magnificence than you could ever have imagined? In my experience, the answer lies in a succinct bit of advice my mom repeated throughout my childhood:

“Follow Your Heart”

But… there’s a catch. Sort of. Wishing and praying for what you want is powerful.  It is not always enough to manifest fantasies. Engaging in movement and action towards goals, backed by passion and intention, creates an abundance of everything you’d ever want.

If you find yourself in a place where your heart is saying “YES! OMG I WOULD LOVE THAT” but the mind is listing reasons to stand still:

“Follow Your Heart … Then, take action!”

inspirational quote about serendipity and taking risks to manifest dreams through the law of attraction

Take physical action forward and see what happens. Here are three personal examples demonstrating how this technique worked for me. Please keep in mind that your results are dependent on the strength of your own love, thoughts, and actions.

1. Move from Chicago to Los Angeles

My husband and I decided to move from Chicago to Los Angeles within one month of our wedding. For months afterward, we struggled to set a date. We didn’t have jobs lined up in California. We didn’t know where we would live. We knew it would be expensive to transport our belongings 2,000 miles across country.
HEART: move to LA!!!!
MIND: wait for a mysterious thing to happen, assuring everything will be okay

What did we do? Followed our hearts & TOOK ACTION

We called fear’s bluff and took forward action towards our dreams. We have lived in sunny Southern California since 2009. Magically, after we committed to a move date, we were both offered virtual, work-from-anywhere online computer jobs. Everything has been okay, even after leaving those corporate jobs to pursue our own creative endeavors.

2. Cottage on a Mountain

Our first place in LA was in a cute neighborhood up against the hills in Studio City. Our rent was near the top of our budget, and the lack of privacy left nothing to the imagination. We set an intention to move to a quieter, more peaceful location. We adopted a one-eyed cat from a dear friend’s neighbor, who coincidentally was looking for tenants for their newly purchased rental. Within months we were living in a 1930’s Hollywood bachelor cottage, in a canyon, on a mountain. At first, worries flirted gently with our minds, reminding us that we share one car between two people. Living and working as freelance artists two miles from the nearest town might be complicated. Luckily, having already benefitted from practicing the law of attraction, our hearts remained open and without hesitation we said “YES!”
HEART: move to the HILLS!!!
MINDwait for a mysterious thing to happen, assuring everything will be okay

What did we do? Followed our hearts & TOOK ACTION

Once again, we challenged the worry and fear and moved towards our dreams. We are on two years at this lovely location, gardening on the slopes and working crafts in the garage. Getting to gigs on time with little to no conflict with my husband’s acting schedule. We have been taking care of business smoothly and successfully. We live and work in our own imagined idea of heaven. Something we painted first with our mind’s eye, and heart. The steps we took towards our visions led us to seeing the results we wanted.

Manifesting Dreams The Law Of Attraction

Thanks to dear friend, Eva Tingley’s match-making skills, I was offered the opportunity to re-design celebrity photographer, Lesley Bohm’s website in exchange for having professional portraits taken. Apprehensive about working with such a prestigious artist, as I felt small next to her greatness, I contemplated being “ready” for such a bold business move.
HEART: move towards GREATNESS!!!!
MINDwait for a mysterious thing to happen, assuring everything will be okay

What did I do? Followed my heart & TOOK ACTION

Thanks to this accidental discovery, a happy chance, this serendipity, my brand is represented professionally by Lesley Bohm‘s Photography. Having a portrait of myself on books, signs, and merchandise helps fans connect with my essence.

Hopefully now you can more easily accept that blessings are available to you simply by saying YES! to fortuity. Have blind faith when the heart backs your intentions. Release the mind of any and all worries. Trust! Move forward. Take baby steps or giant leaps — just move! The more this technique is practiced, the easier it is to manifest the things you crave.
