How to Trust and Strengthen Your Belief in the Universe

How to Trust and Strengthen Your Belief in the Universe

From the time we were young, we were made to believe that your bills should always be paid, you need to come out top in your class, and you should have a good-paying job. I’m not saying those are bad, but when you can’t live up to societal expectations, it can leave you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious. No matter how you try to look at things, no one is ever truly in control, and in moments like this you need to remind yourself, “I gotta have faith in the universe.”

Whether things are difficult now, you are doubtful if things will work out your way, or you are simply stressed, all you need to do is surrender to the universe to experience ease and peace in your life. What comes to your mind when you hear the words ‘faith’ and ‘belief’? If you are like most people, you probably think about religion. But it’s outside the bounds of religion. It’s universal. Whatever you believe in – God, The Big Guy, Higher Forces, The Universe… It doesn’t matter. Always trust that there is a power out there that gets you anything good you want and desire.

This doesn’t mean that you have to change your way of life or quit your job to meditate on a high mountain. Trusting the universe means that you are certain that everything will be taken care of. A job will come. You will manifest your dream partner. You will graduate with good grades, and as far as your eyes can see, it will be yours.

Trusting the universe is an art – a process. To trust the universe, we need to have a leap of faith.

In the process of trusting and strengthening your belief in the universe, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

You are not online – you’re a reflection of the universe

Our connection to the stars, the world, and everything around us that can light up our path is actually within us. You are a reflection of the universe and that’s why you act like you are part of something big and powerful. The universe is here, it’s big, and you are a part of it. I don’t want you to think of the universe as a higher power – but an accomplice.

Look up to it to learn about how it changes your life. The moment you realize and accept that you are special, the faster your reality starts to change for the better. Own your readiness to accept the universe unconditionally. Take that leap of faith because one day, you’ll be the happiest person alive and all your dreams will come through.

Let Go of Things You Can’t Control

When you have no faith, you want to control everything. You want to do things your way without considering any other thing or people. The actions in your life become tight and bureaucratic, without allowing the universe to work with you and give you directions. As a part of growth, you need to learn to relax and let go of things you can’t control. Most people beat themselves up because they can’t “handle” things.

But in reality, the only way you can get clarity is to release your sense of control and allow yourself to flow with the universe’s rhythm. While on some levels, you can control certain things in your life, you should be aware that some things are way out of your league. Give yourself the chance to trust the universe. You may be surprised that the unknown you fear may turn out to work in your favor. Rather than holding on tight to things, you should try new adventures that could be beneficial to you.

Say Positive Affirmations

If you are unsure about what will happen in the future, always tell yourself, “I have faith in the universe. All things will work out the way they should.”

As simple as that sounds, it builds your trust that the universe has your best interests at heart.

If you don’t get that promotion at work, or if that project didn’t turn out fine, I want you to believe that there is a better one out there for you. We aren’t meant to navigate life without the water stirring up once in a while – it’s what comes after these challenges that shows you why you went through them. When you surrender to the universe, timing, enlightenment, and peace follow.
The universe is meant to serve you. Know that it wants you to be happy.

It All Comes Back to Love

Love is the greatest force in the universe. Love is caring. Love is having faith. Love forgives. Love is tolerant and understanding. Love is not controlling. Love is pure.  Love is all around and within you. By emitting love from your life, you’ll attract so much more than love from the universe.

Develop the mindset that the universe loves you and that’s why it serves it even when it doesn’t work out well for you. Sometimes not getting what you want is the best.

Trust Your Intuition

Your intuition is your guide in life. It is the number one method the universe uses to communicate with us. But since it’s a subtle part of our consciousness, it is often unheard and overlooked. One of my favorite quotes is from Alexandria Hotmer. She said, “if we would just take a moment to look around, we would find that the universe is in constant communication with us.”

Trusting the universe means believing that everything holds a purpose in your life. The good things, the bad things, and everything’s meant to push you a step further to where you are meant to be. So listen to your intuition. The guidance you seek comes from within your soul.


The greatest gift you can give yourself is knowing that the universe has your back no matter what. You have to trust it daily, even when things are not working out well. There are no ifs or sometimes. You need to be in constant communication with the higher force because it will give you clear direction.

When you trust it blindly and fully, the universe gives you anything and everything you desire. Take that bold decision today and embrace the universe to serve you.

Manifest Love – 6 Ways to Attract Your Dream Partner

It’s hard finding someone you are interested in, but making them aware of your feelings is even harder.

There is nothing wrong with being single. You can live life on your terms, sleep in the middle of the bed, and do what you feel like. 

At some point, you might want to spend your life with an awesome partner. You are ready to start a family and enjoy the benefits of a long-lasting relationship. 

If you are reading this article, chances are you are ready to manifest love and attract your dream partner, but you haven’t had major success.

Today, I’ll be sharing with you six steps from my personal experience that will help you attract the person you desire.

Looking for ways to get a great partner? Try these six steps – trust me, it works without much effort. 

1. Know That You Deserve Your Dream Partner

Write down at least 25 characteristics you want your ideal partner to have.

While some of your lists can be negotiable, few should be compulsory.

When you know what you want, the universe will send someone that reflects these qualities to you.

Be aware that you want to date someone who introduces you to their friends and loved ones.

Someone who loves kids as much as you do.

So today, I’m telling you that you deserve a life of joy and happiness. If you want to manifest the person of your dreams, you need to know that you deserve to be loved the way you want.

I want you to tell yourself, I deserve a great love

Tell yourself each time you look in the mirror. Shout it to your next-door neighbor when they walk past your front yard.

Because you do.

2. You Are Enough

Let go of the mentality that you’re not ‘good enough’ for the man/woman of your dreams.

It’s hard to manifest the right person in your life when in every relationship, you constantly think about heartbreak.

Even if you shift your energy toward positive things and you work on your thoughts, when your subconscious mind tells you that you aren’t good enough, you end up manifesting the wrong things.

Because you were manifesting from the point that you needed to fix and you weren’t good enough, you also tend to attract these kinds of people too.

I want you to know that even if you are single or you are not in your ideal relationship, you aren’t inadequate.

To manifest a healthy relationship, you need to shift your gears and start looking at it in this way: “I am enough and complete. I don’t need to be fixed.”

3. Stop paying attention to negativity

STOP listening to people who tell you, ‘When it comes to finding someone you want in your life……’, ‘Stop being unrealistic’.

The truth is, if you can see the ideal partner you want to take, you can call him/her into your life.

Instead, focus on people who give you positive vibes. Spend time with people who attract their dream partners and draw inspiration from them.

The most pain-free way to manifest anything you want is to stay genuinely happy for others and let go of negative emotions.

Just the way you clean out your room and take the garbage out, you should clean out old beliefs from your life.

Right now, all this fake information you’ve been fed in the name of being ‘realistic’ shouldn’t ruin your entire look at life.

Anything is possible, and that’s what I want you to believe.

Thankfully, you are reading this article and you are taking lessons from someone who has manifested their dream partner and is encouraging you that your relationship can be surreal and as romantic and passionate as you desire.

4. Do Things That Creates Positive Vibes

Here’s a secret:

Your ideal partner isn’t going to come to you faster if you sit around doing nothing. You need to enjoy your process and part of having fun is doing the things that bring a smile to your face.

Do things that help you create a positive vibe while you are waiting for that ideal person to be delivered.

Whatever creates positive vibes is going to be essential to manifest love in your niche. Do you know why? The universe wants to see you happy.

What can you do to feel good about calling in your dream partner? Is it watching an inspiring Netflix movie? Or taking a walk around the park to see healthy couples and get inspiration from them?

Do that today.

5. Get Specific on What You Want

I kid you not, if you get specific, the universe delivers.

The key is to create a board of your ideal partner. Include everything – what they look like, the dates you want to go with them, events you’ll attend, how your life would look together.

The magic happens when you take a few moments every day to visualize and see your ideal partner showing up in your life.

What do you want in a woman? If you hear a voice saying, ‘that’s unrealistic’, or any negative sentence, you tell it to get lost.

Here’s a fun exercise for you to do:

Grab a pen and paper right now, and write down 10-25 things you feel will make up your dream person.

If you want a guy with nice blonde hair, write it down. If you want a woman who is Brunette, grew up in New York, or whatever, just write it.

Use creative adjectives and don’t limit your imagination.

It’s super important for the next tip I will share with you.

6. Believe That the Universe Wants You to be Happy

Your only job when you tell the universe what you want is to prepare to receive it. When you get specific, the universe responds so fast.

Always believe that the universe is your genie and it wants you to be happy. If you are familiar with the law of attraction, you’ll realize that to attract things in life using your energy you need to feel good now, not when you get it.

When it comes to manifestation, one thing you should bear in mind is to, ‘act as if.’ This means that you should act as if you already have what you’re trying to manifest.

Remember that little task I gave you earlier?

Turn those sentences into statements and start with, “I am grateful to the universe for sending me…” and complete these affirmations using the list you just made.

For example;

“I am grateful to the universe for sending me my dream woman with blonde hair.”

To refresh, here are six tips you can take to manifest the partner of your dreams:
  1. Know the exact characteristics you want your ideal partner to possess.
  2. Let go of the mentality that you are not enough or you are not worth it.
  3. Don’t listen to negative thoughts and emotions.
  4. Be genuinely happy for people around you.
  5. Do the things that bring you peace, joy, and happiness.
  6. Believe that the universe works in your favour.

Do Daily Affirmations Really Work?

Not surprised you asked.

After all, few things can boast of landing you a dream job or partner by saying a few words.

So it’s no surprise you want to confirm if it’s worth your time before diving in. And if you’re like me, it almost sounds too good to be true.

In fact, if you called b.s. a few years ago to someone saying you could have the good things in life…

Land a new job, get a raise, or find yourself a dream house by simply saying a bunch of words…

I’d be right there supporting you. Calling the person a fraud. Or ignorant, at best.

But now? My mind’s in a different place.

Thanks to daily (and positive) affirmations I’ve attracted a bunch of things I’m eternally grateful for.

Like a supportive wife and family. Plus a brand new car at the start of the year.

So if you’ve wrestled with the question: “Do daily affirmations work?”

Here’s the short answer, yes.

For the long answer, we’ll dive into the deep end of the affirmation sea to uncover a few treasures.

And by the time you start practicing what you’ll discover on this page…

You’ll walk around feeling so good people will wonder why.

How do daily affirmations work?


At first thought, it might seem like fantasy. But there’s a whole lot going on behind the scenes that gives affirmations so much power.

You see, if you repeat something to yourself long and often enough, it starts to shape your thoughts and reality.

That’s the underlying principle behind why they work so well.

The way you speak to yourself is important. Because it forms a solid foundation for your thoughts and feelings to build on.

You see, our brains are pretty clever. Feeding your mind positive beliefs through your words rewires your brain to see yourself in a whole new light.

It’s giving your best self the attention it deserves. With this, your manifestations are stronger because you feel more confident.

Remember, aligning your feelings with what you want is how you manifest the things you wish to achieve.

And there’s no better way to do this like affirmations

As you say the words, watch as you feel a change in energy inside you. It’s almost surreal.

That change? That feeling you get when you say something good about yourself?

Well, that’s your subconscious slowly adjusting as you install a new belief system.

Now before we continue, it’s important you see affirmations as a double edged sword.

Meaning they can work for you or against you. So you’ve got to create the right ones.

The next part shows you how.

How to create powerful affirmations that work

Good and bad. Yin and Yang. Sugar and Vinegar

Well, you kinda get the point – for every right way to do something, there’s a wrong way that can ruin your efforts.

Luckily for you, I’ve got a few rules to unleash all the power inside affirmations.

They’ll guide you to create your own. And provide you with insights to spot great ones.

You can also see them as tips if you like.

So let’s get into it:

1. Keep them positive.

This comes first above all else. It’s vital you stay in the zone of positivity with ALL your manifestations.

No negative words. Or phrases that reinforce negativity.

They only block your desires from manifesting.

Like I said, positive words are like fuel in your manifestation journey. Because they align your energy with the goals or desires you want to achieve.

For example, let’s take a look at two affirmations for someone that wants to escape a stressful job to a new I.T job.

E.g 1 “I now have an enjoyable and fun I.T job.”

E.g 2 “I’m tired of my current job”

No. 1 is the clear winner.

It keeps things fun, and positive. Which is how you want yours to be like.

2. Stay in the present.

This is a common area most people get wrong.

They think: “I want a better job, house or lifestyle in the future”

So they go ahead and create their affirmations in the future tense.

Well, that poses a big problem. Why?

Because your desires get stuck in the future. And we both know you want them in your life like right now.

A key part of the law of attraction is the “power of present”

Whether it’s being fully present in your manifestations. Or saying your affirmations in the present tense.

The goal is to say your desires like you already have them.

Here are some examples.

-Low self-esteem? : “I am confident and comfortable in my own skin.”

-Hate your job?:. “I have a wonderful [insert dream job]

-Want to lose weight?:. “I love how my body looks”

3. Keep things short.

Brevity shows clarity. It highlights the fact that you’re sure about the things you want.

And this is great for you. Because you radiate a special kind of energy the universe will pick up on and send some goodies your way.

Short affirmations are quality ones. And they stand out due to their straight-to-the-point nature.

How To Do Affirmations

After nailing down the creation process of affirmations, it’s time to put them to use.

By now, you should have a few on your mind or a piece of paper.

So let’s look at a few ways to get them to work for you.

1 Repeat them everyday.

Some people are confused about the right frequency for affirmations.

In my experience, anything from three times a day upwards is fine.

The key to success with anything – especially affirmations, is consistency.

Daily commitment speeds up the process of attracting your desires.

Plus, it reinforces positive thoughts that shape your life. And transform you into the person you want to become.

2. Stay positive.

It takes a huge amount of conscious effort to stay positive.

So I know it’s not always easy. But just like the words you came up with for your affirmations, you’ve got to a bring a positive attitude each time you say them.

A good way to get into this state is to think of something that’s working in your life.

Could be anything. Just make sure it’s positive so you can slip into the right state of mind.

3. Say them in front of a mirror

This adds a really fun twist to things.


Because in this section you’re going to say your affirmations in first, second, and third person.

Like this:

“I love….”

“You love….”

“[Insert your name ] loves….”

Pretty simple, and fun too.

So it’s You, I, then your name attached to the rest of the affirmation.

Hard to stay sad while doing this one, eh?

When to use affirmations.

It’s time to zoom in on negative events where affirmations serve as useful tools.

I call this the magic pill effect. Because these events infect our mood and drop our energy levels.

Plus, if we’re being honest, it’s almost impossible to stay away from them 24/7.

Affirmations help us challenge negative thoughts or feelings these events create in us.

Here are just few scenarios you can use affirmations:

-When you’re feeling stuck and unsure of your next move.

-When your vibes off and you’re not sure why. They’ll raise your energy so you give off higher vibrations.

-When you’ve got a new goal you want to achieve

Final Thoughts

So it’s a wrap.

Affirmations are words. And words have immense power to shape your life into something you’ll be proud of.

The more you tell yourself how amazing you are or your situation is, the faster you can attract good things into your life.

Best Spiritual Foods To Boost Your Manifestation Power

You know that feeling when you sit down at a table full of food?

To have all those wonderful options in front of you. To enjoy something you know will give you immense pleasure.

That’s the exact feeling you’ll get when you dive into this post, and see what’s in store for you.

Plus, it comes with a fun twist – where nutrition (or food) meets spirituality.

You see, it’s no secret that your vibration greatly impacts your manifestation journey.

Low vibration, unhealthy energy and bad moods are simply recipes for disaster.

However, thanks to the natural, healing, and manifestation-boosting power of certain foods – you won’t have to worry about the effects of any of those things

Why? Because certain foods leave you with sparks of energy after eating them.

And as the saying goes: you are what you eat. I know, kinda cliché. But it’s so true.

Especially in a world where we’re bombarded with unhealthy food.

That’s why this article’s aim is to serve as an eye-opener into the unique world of food.

And show you how special foods possess the power to supercharge your manifestation.

Also, when you make it all the way to the end, there’s a bonus meal plan waiting to get you started on some ideas.

So if you’re in for a treat…

Let’s dive into the various parts of a manifestation diet.

Why you shouldn’t ignore spiritual foods…

Most manifestation topics stick to the spiritual side of things.

You know, visualization, meditation, and the likes.

While those are clearly important, the physical aspects that involve your body are crucial too.

Nothing much comes out of an unhealthy body.

Think of the last time you felt like you’re in a funk.

Or when getting out of bed felt like climbing a mountain.

I’m pretty sure manifesting your desires got tougher. Because your feelings were all over the place.

And few things send you over to “unhealthy land” like low vibration foods.

I call them “manifestation blockers.” Because they stop our desires in their tracks. And keep you waiting for days, weeks or even months.

On the other hand though, there are some heroes called good-for-you foods.

And they lift your vibration with each bite.

You see, your body is the center of your energy. Treating it right sets you on the path to profound success in life.

Like most things, I see foods as choices. Making the right one makes all the difference in watching your desires unfold into reality.

Quality high vibration foods and manifesting go hand in hand.

Because your energy and emotional state largely depends on it.

High vibration foods to supercharge your day

We know eating right is good. But sometimes we forget why.

So I’m fixing that…

It’s time to unpack those excellent high- vibration foods that deserve a place on your shopping list.

Plus a brief bio on each one to serve as a reminder on why making better choices with your food is vital.

With this, you’ll understand why they’re often favourites in creating an “angel’s diet.”

So if you’re ready to feel alive…

Let’s eat!

Green vegetables

Mum always knows best.

That’s why she encouraged you to make them a part of your day.

Veggies are like powerhouses.

By drawing from the energy of the sun, they provide huge bouts of energy

Imagine having all that inside you as you start your day.

You’ll be bursting with so much vibration the universe will pick up on it, and hand you whatever you want.

That’s why when I sense moodiness creeping in, veggies are my go-to choices.


Nothing’s gonna boost your brain function like these bad boys.

And as you probably know, a healthy brain means a healthy mind.

A mind that’s clear, and unaffected by daily distractions is powerful.

That’s why I look for creative ways to stuff them in my diet.

If you’re looking for improved concentration during your meditations or visualizations, then you can’t go wrong with avocados.

Wild berries

A great choice for people leaning to the more fun side of things.

Juicy. Tasty. And with a touch of excitement…

Berries are a great introduction into the world of spiritual foods.

Oftentimes I get asked what’s a less boring way to get started on a manifestation diet.

And I always point to the berries family:
Strawberries, elderberries, huckleberries.

Who said spiritual eating couldn’t be fun?

With these guys, there’s a lot you can do if you want to stay far away from boredom so you can get creative.

Think smoothies and jams.

Everyone’s spiritual practice is different, and unique.

Berries offer an exciting way to let your imagination shine through.


Turmeric and cinnamon are the agents in this category.

While they’re not chewables like the rest, they’re worth mentioning because they’re just so damn effective.

In fact, you may have noticed them hiding in various health supplements. Actively working as antioxidants.

And helping to get rid of harmful causes of stress.

Also, these spices boosts your immune system by fighting off bacteria.

Now, I know. This is not a nutrition site.

However, healthy bodies are the ones capable of carrying out effective manifestations.

So it’s kind of important to take a step back to keep our bodies optimized.


Want to give bad moods a good kick in the butt?

Then you can’t go wrong with beans.

They’re fortified with nutrients to keep you active and positive.

Negative energy will find it really difficult staying in a body that’s fed beans regularly.
(Consider that a bonus tip) 😉

So be sure to walk into a nearby grocery and help yourself to some fresh beans.

You’ll fill your cup of life with so much joy, and happiness to make your manifestations more meaningful.

Low vibration foods.

Now that you know what to have in your diet…

It’s time to discover what to stay away from.

If you want to maintain a high vibration that is.

Processed foods.

Meat, fish or anything that goes through the gruesome chemically-infusing path of processing is a no, no.

Chemicals are bad for your body. Which means terrible for your energy.

You want energy boosters in your corner. Not drainers.

And these guys suck the vibration you need to manifest your dreams.

Baked stuffy foods.

Cravings happen to all of us.

And sometimes we fall, and have a piece of bread or two.

Once or twice? That’s okay.

But a daily diet of flour based foods, and you’re rewiring your body to feel tired.

This leads to a constant struggle to attract the things you want in your life.

Bonus Meal Plan

As promised, I cooked up a meal plan for your day.

It’s one thing to have a list of foods.

It’s another thing to find the right, and delicious ways to combine them.

You can go with this. Or allow it to spark some ideas inside you.


Whip up some tasty strawberries smoothie you can have with an avocado pie.


Nothing beats beans for a tasty, filled lunch.

To max out on nutritional benefits, add vegetable salad toppings


I usually go light with my dinners.

So I recommend a bean cake with elderberry juice


That’s a wrap.

Health is wealth. A healthy body is a powerful manifesting machine.

And since we often get out of something what we put in, it’s only right we stick to high vibration foods like the ones here.

Happy healthy manifesting!
