The Real Rulebook & manifesting miracles

Today I have a question for you; 

Have you ever wondered why things don’t always work out the way we’re told they will? 

For example; 

Work hard and you’ll be successful. 

Just put the hours in and you’ll win. 

Follow this strategy and you’ll be a gajillionaire. 

Be a good person and nothing bad will happen to you. 

Maybe the above are true for you – and is so, congratulations on your life!! 

However, if you’re like me and many of the creatives I work with, you’ll have experienced mixed results with the conventional rules and promises. 

Why is that?! 

I’ve been pondering this question for the last couple of years, prompted by some inexplicable results in my career and business. 

Happily, some have been inexplicably wonderful. 😍 

However, others have been inexplicably frustrating, disappointing, or on occasion, heart-breaking. 

So, I vowed to get to the bottom of what was actually going on. 

Ie, the way things really work – in real life, rather than in theory. 

And thanks to the nature of ideas to grow by themselves, I was led to some insightful guides and study paths that have helped me to discover a new set of rules. 

And this time, the results are proving to be much more reliable. 🥳

Imagine that… 

Imagine having the real rule book for this game of life! 

Of course, I still don’t have all the answers, but I have learned a LOT that helps to make playing the game feel easier and more fun. 

More delightful magic and a sense of the miraculous.

Less of the baffling, frustrating and anxiety-inducing confusion.

And the best bit; these rules are much simpler than you might imagine. 

Yet, the results… 🤩 

(I share my latest happy manifestation below.) 

But beyond my own results, my driving force now is to share what I’ve learned, to help others enjoy the magic and miracles as much as possible. 

So, would you like to know more about these Real Rules? 

I first shared a few of these core insights in Your Creative Dharma, and living by these simple ideas has helped me and my clients enjoy new levels of thriving in recent years. 

But I’ve kept studying and testing since then, and the new home for my latest insights is my manifesting programme

If you follow any of my Instagram channels, you may have seen that I’ve been dabbling with drawing cartoons, this is so that I can improve my visual sketches of complex ideas that I’m including in the programme.

Visuals = clarity (for creative minds)

These may not be the most technically brilliant drawings, but I’m getting exciting feedback that these visuals are helping my students to see things differently – with more faith, excitement, clarity and optimism. (Some of the most potent creative superpowers.) 

This week, I’ve created a couple more of my quirky cartoons to add to my manifesting programme, The Creative Arts of Believing & Receiving. 

This project has evolved into such a deep journey, that I’m still inviting Beta Testers. 

Because I feel that so much of our results are shaped by what’s going on ‘behind the scenes’. 

And I want to share all I’ve learned about these invisible influences. 

I want you to know which efforts will be more likely to pay off – and why. 

I want you to feel confident that you can enjoy the results you’re craving, because you know what will really work to bring them to life. 

(This alone makes such a difference to what we go for – and how much we enjoy the journey.) 

Since these Real Rules are key to understanding how things really play out, I feel that this material needs to be a foundational part of any creative vision. 

At the very least, it can make the process faster, smoother, and more exciting. 

It’s a good feeling to know you’re working with the nature of reality, rather than against the forces at play. 

And I would LOVE to share these insights and breakthroughs with you. 

So, if you’re curious, if you could use some of life’s magic on your side, you can find out more about the programme here;

I’ve also put together 12 Good Reasons why being a part of this Beta Round could be the success boost you’ve been looking for. 

Or if you have any questions, please ask away – this work is becoming the deeper thread of all my creative support systems, (I’m obsessed!😍), so I’ll be delighted to share more info. 

And I hope I’ve inspired you to get curious about the real causes behind your results, so you can embark on your own exciting journey of discovery…

Wishing you a fun and fabulous weekend, 


PS Would you like an example from my latest cocreation adventures? 

A few months ago, I thought it would be nice to add ‘Award-winning’ to my achievements – partly as a boost to my career, but also because, now that I’ve found my dharma, my next focus is the pursuit of excellence

And yesterday I discovered I’d been nominated for an award for my work – and won! 

I didn’t pursue it.

I didn’t apply.

I didn’t even know I’d won it until I ‘just happened‘ to see the notification. 

It just manifested, all by itself. 

(After minimal effort from me – in line with those Real Rules!)

This is just one of the happy surprises that are becoming the norm, with more understanding of how life really works.

It’s such a joyful way to live, and I want nothing more than to share what I’ve learned, so that this can become the happy norm for you, too. 😊
