I’ve always been into culture, learning different languages, and experiencing new foods from around the world. I was hooked on the Mary Kate and Ashley movies where they took on various challenges in different countries. It exposed me to something new and created a desire in me to travel. Over the years, I’ve used proven tools and templates to manifest my dreams and make them my reality. In today’s post, I’m going to show you how I used 3 key steps to travel the world in style!
Let me share with you how to manifest your dream vacations:
1. Write a list of places you want to go and why you want to go there. Have a travel journal where you can write out historical buildings you want to see, restaurants you want to dine at and hotels you’d like to stay in. I created the Travel Journal to get you started with these things. There’s a place to create a mini vision board, write out your goals and even comes packed with fun activities to help you plan your future trips. Below is my current vision page in my travel journal for my trip to India, Thailand and China. There’s lots I want to experience in each place, so I pasted that photos that remind me daily of what it is I desire for my future trip.
2. Visualize yourself traveling. The fastest way to manifest your dreams and desires is to see yourself having it before it’s a reality. When I wanted to take my first trip to Paris, I said daily that I was going to go. I decorated my room with a Parisian theme long before I ever went. Even using the Travelpreneur’s Affirmation cards helped me manifest many dream trips. Below is an example of my travel affirmation card that I created to go to London and Oxford. It’s amazing how easy that trip manifested once I fully committed to pasting down my vision.
3. Don’t worry about the “how”. Many times, it’s hard to manifest dreams and desires because we worry about how it will come. Let that thought go right now. Stop worrying about the process and start giving thanks for the final outcome. For example, I wanted to travel abroad before the end of 2015. I got to the month of October and nothing had manifested but I didn’t worry about it at all. I just kept believing that it was going to happen, and a few days later I received an email. It was an invitation to Oxford University’s Oxford Fashion Week. They wanted a blogger there and I was the person who came to mind. By October 29, 2015, I was on a plane headed to Frankfurt, Oxford and London. You can’t tell me the power of affirming, believing and receiving isn’t real!
