I’ve had so many people asking what the difference is between praying vs manifesting.
One of the biggest issues for those of us who believe in God and are sensitive souls, is that we tend to hold a belief that asking for more than we already have is not what we are supposed to do.
Are you with me?
I understand how this is such a low vibe and uncomfortable place to live in.
Believing that we are in some way wrong for desiring more and thinking that we are going against or insulting God isn’t how He wants us to live! When what we desire is a match for our soul’s growth and purpose and we practice putting God in the forefront of our lives He blesses and supports all the actions it takes to achieve our desires. In turn those actions become easeful, we stop trying and begin being, new opportunities begin to show up for us in the form of the right people, the right timing, synchronicities” that we can’t really explain abound. What once felt so hard now seems eerily simple.This is the Divine within us in the “flow” of our Divine nature, and it feels SOOOO good!
On another note, if you have found the “rules” for manifesting don’t always feel appropriate, aligned, good, real or even safe for you to practice, and leave you feeling uncertain and uneasy you are not alone!
In 1 Corinthians 10:13 we can take note that God is for us, he has our best interest at heart. He teaches us how to discern temptation and provides us with an escape.
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
The escape from temptation is faith. It is a returning to our heart with an open mind and willingness to release the entanglements of fear.
The truth here is that God DOES want us to pray for our desires, the ones that match our soul. He also wants for us to heal, learn and evolve in our mindset and our actions.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:1
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
“May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans!” Psalm 20:4
This weeks Angels Don’t Lie is designed to help you feel more joy and practice a grateful, loving heart and abundant mindset. You will find my God-based method for understanding miracles as remembrances of love, attracting your desires by learning to connect and access your light room in Heaven, and insight into a very powerful technique of “Soul Mapping” – understanding your soul’s purpose and what makes you, YOU! Listen here or on your favorite podcast provider.
Or you can watch the show in the video below.
Our first calling then is to identify fear’s aka Shmego’s voice and how it has separated our thoughts from our heart.
Once we heal the separation, then we can access a higher state of consciousness. This new state lifts us from a lower vibration to that of being aligned with our Goddess Soul-Self which feels lighter and freer and it’s a heck of alot easier to navigate life.

Holy God, King of the universe and God of my ancestors, thank you for the blessings and love that you have lovingly and graciously provided me. Today, I am asking you to please illuminate your light within my heart so that I may know and trust the desires of my soul. As I cast away all my fears, doubts and worries and lean on my faith Lord, guide and protect me from false illusions and despairing thoughts. I pray for my desires to be seen, felt and known as truth. I stand confidently in the miracles you provide and the presence of your peace, joy and love in my life.
Amen. And, so it is.
Claiming the desires of your heart begins with identifying the things you want to bring into your life.
The first step in doing this is to make a list of all the desires and wants that you have.
The goal with this assignment is to NOT hold back when writing your list.
NOTE: If you shy away from writing something down, pause for a moment and ask yourself if you are experiencing fear or judging yourself.
Action Step 1: Desire List- Write an inventory list of all the things you are hoping for, wanting and desiring.
Action Step 2: Sit in a meditative space with your desire list and a pen. Ask God to be with you as you take a deep breath in through your nose and direct it’s flow toward the center of your chest, allowing the breath to fill your heart. Pause here until you are in the stillness of peace.
Action Step 3: Pick up your pen and scan your list with your eyes. Allow your eyes to gaze over each desire while tuning inward to notice how the words feel inside your body. Circle each desire that has a positive, hopeful, happy, enlivened feeling to it.
Action Step 4: On the Postcard Vision page write down your top 3 desires. Take time here to journal about each one noting the time you first felt this Postcard Vision come to you.
Action Step 5: Choose the one Postcard Vision that lights you up and excites you the most. Save this for next week’s Spiritual Assignment.
