How to manifest anything! ~ A very powerful tool!

You know manifesting works for other people, but you feel as though you’re missing something to make it work for you.

The number one reason most people get stuck while manifesting is they don’t know every vital step to manifest and co-create with the universe.

Here are the seven steps to manifest anything you want — including money.

Step 1: Get clear on what you want.

If you don’t know exactly what you want, you can’t actually take steps to make it happen. To manifest something, you must know what you desire.

To get started with this step, create a list of 20-25 things you want to manifest. Get specific about what you want and list the attributes in the positive (aka avoid using the word don’t).

“I want a car” might land you a 1965 El Camino without a working engine.
“I want a used SUV with less than 30,000 miles on it that’s priced under $15,000” streamlines your search quite a bit.

Side note: As you create your list, give yourself permission to want what you want today and be open to changing it tomorrow. Judgement of yourself doesn’t help you manifest anything.

Step 2: Ask the universe.

Once you have your list, it’s time to amplify your signal to the universe by asking for what you want. When the universe is clear on what you want to manifest, then it can help you. If you don’t ask, it will still try to help you, but it guesses as to what you truly desire.

Don’t leave what you receive up to chance, ask for what you want.

There are a lots of ways to ask including prayer, meditation, visualization, and vision boards. An easy way to ask for what you want is to write a letter to the universe.

Step 3: Work toward your goals.

Manifesting is the art of co-creating with the universe. Working toward your goals increases your chances of receiving what you want. It’s also fun.

Write down 3 actions you can do today to bring you closer to your goal. If you don’t know what to do, use Google to figure out what actions you can take. It’s likely someone has struggled with the same issue and has written about it. Let yourself be inspired by what others have done.

Start taking action and keep taking action until you’ve reached your goal.

Why E-sports have become a thing

Traditionally, Basketball Volleyball Soccer and Rugby to name a few are the famous physical sports yet always watch by many folks around the world.

but when technology got in. many youngsters up to people who are into technology really get to play their favorite games and got to develop games as well. And when we talk about games. quite a few people play their favorite games i mean who doesn’t love to play games sometimes especially when we get bored right? but game developers nowadays stepped up their game.

They have made games such as DOTA (defense of the ancient) LOL (League of Legends) Call of duty and Fortnite and many more. However these games that are being mentioned have their own respective developers.

Until some games such as DOTA and LOL have entered the Online tournament(E-sports). It later became very popular since these games are being played by many gamer across the world and i’m one of those actually, but then these games played by professional players globally and have form their own teams to compete internationally.

But hold on, it doesn’t end there since those games mentioned above can only be played thru PC and/or Gaming Laptop however, “Mobile Games” are becoming a thing right now and there’s a game that actually exists and are being played by most people in Southeast Asia by way of using their smartphones.

and this is Mobile Legends, this game can be played anytime( nope don’t play it during your shift at work) and anywhere for as long you get strong connection from your carrier if you’re using mobile data unless you’re connected to a WiFi.

Mobile legends had a tournament as well that took place way back 2017. The game has become popular in Southeast Asia and will be a medal event at the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

Buhay OFW

OFW are truly hero. A sacrifice that is hard to define. Some are lucky and few has its own battles. They had to adapt to almost everything like language, style of living , foods and many to mention. Filipinos did not care the discrimination of other country, instead they remain humble and put it into positive energy.

Deep and High motivation is  big the word for  survive. And it pays forward to a brighter future of their families.  Unfortunately , the family they left in the Philippines, but not all, does not acknowledge the hardship and aloneliness in the new world they are in . They tend to buy new stuff to impress or to feed their own desires and satisfaction. Not knowing, it is a hard earned money and should in return give a great value like putting it on business or an investment. 

I AM A NURSE

and i am lost

My journey started in 2006. At the age of 17 – just came out of high school I decided to pursue a career that seems to be promising during that time. 

Nursing.

As a filipino this career believed to be a ticket into the global employment arena since it was a booming industry.

Entering University is one of the best years of my life. Being surrounded by likeminded people sparks excitement on achieving the goals that you’ve been dreaming of. Although nursing is not my first choice as a career, it seems to be promising and grew to love the field overtime.

Then came 2010, almost all Filipino’s in my generation took up same course as I am, we ended up polluting the industry. Oversupply of nurses was evidenced by hospitals taking advantage on RN’s by requiring to take a “training course”-where they need to pay Php 10,000 or more just to practice their profession without the guarantee of being hired in the end.

Due to my eagerness to practice the profession, I made sure to find a hospital that will not take advantage or milk more money out of me. I found a public hospital where I can work but without salary- they call it “volunteer nurse”. I Just told myself that, at least I could help somehow, especially with my less fortunate countrymen.

After three months, I decided to find any job that will pay me because your girl here need to eat and pay for her rent.  Luck seems to be on my side when I got a contractual job as a company nurse, where my love/hate relationship with nursing started.

After the contract, I decided to seek greener pasture outside the country and decided to work in a factory in Taiwan, but I got back home just after a month because of health reasons. I discovered that I have vasculitis. I did everything that I could to find a job suited for me since I can no longer stand for a long period of time without triggering the disease.

I worked as a secretary, try my luck in pageantry and try again in hospitals but seems no luck. And then I had an opportunity to go back to school and study again. I took Master in Public Health as I had this vision on working in the government and serving those who are in need. But that vision remained a vision since I belong in the country where politics matter to be able to secure a permanent job in the government.

Almost gave up, but then again giving up is NOT even a choice. I was fortunate to be tapped by a friend to try applying in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since it is easier to get in the country even if you don’t have a lot of experience in the nursing field. 

Fast forward to today, almost 10 years later. I am here writing this piece, unemployed and do not know what to do next. I can’t seem to find my niche, I felt that I’m just going back and fort and not really seeing any growth at all. Lots of questions running in my mind; Is there any time left to change career? Can I allow myself to go back to ground zero again? Or, am I just sabotaging myself? 

Are you really for me? Or is it time to move on? Tell me.

Nursing.

How does a long distance relationship survive?

Surviving the distance

My husband and I met during our college days. We’ve been together for 12 years now and I can say that most of those years, we spent them apart. He works overseas, and I am here in the Philippines, with our daughter. What really keeps us strong is our faith and genuine love for each other.

I always tell myself that this is only temporary. One day, this distance will no longer exist because we will be together, every waking hour of our lives. I just have to trust him and ask for God’s guidance, that he may be faithful to me all the time.

Sometimes, I envy others on social media who always post something about their husbands, who always go out of town with their family. I can only do that few times in a year.

Keep communication line open

Good thing about this generation are the unlimited ways on how to communicate with your loved ones abroad. There is facebook, messenger, Skype, WhatsApp, and the like. We communicate on a daily basis, especially now that our daughter always look forward for her daddy’s video call.

I know a lot of people can relate to us, and now can answer the question, “How do you survive the distance?”

Why I Don’t Like to Visit Palawan

The only reason is…I want to stay so I can explore all the beautiful places such as these…

 

The Underground River

I grew up in this wonderful province where nature is all around and it never ceases to amaze you to witness God’s beautiful creation. Since my father discovered this place way back when I was in high school, it has been a regular destination of our family’s summer vacation and every year I never got tired of riding the boat tour inside the cave and marvel on its beauty.

As described from the UNESCO website, ” This park features a spectacular limestone karst landscape with an underground river. One of the river’s distinguishing features is that it emerges directly into the sea, and its lower portion is subject to tidal influences. “

Long Beach in San Vicente

The long-planned vacation to San Vicente and El Nido only happened last year, as I had always been away from the country because of work. Well, it has been a very exciting and satisfying experience. San Vicente has many beautiful islands and white beaches anywhere you look, as it is not so populated yet with many tourists and facilities, you will feel closer to nature in this place. It has a 14-km long white beach on the main island but you can go on boat tours and visit other small islands and to top it all there is a beautiful waterfall in one of the islands. I love to sit on the beach during sunsets while enjoying a cup of coffee, well this place will not fail to give you that breathtaking view.

El Nido

At last, my dream of visiting El Nido happened, although the weather was not so friendly in the month of January it did not hinder us to explore the beautiful islands of this famous tourist destination. And in my observation, this place has more tourists than locals, walking along the main island beach made me feel like I am not in the Philippines as it is crowded by different nationalities. Being a resident of Puerto Princesa, I was surprised that there is a part of Palawan that is more alive and busy than the main city. The nightlife in El Nido is unbelievably exciting with nice restaurants where you can have fresh seafood at an affordable price. You can also enjoy a glass of wine and shisha in some bars along the beach. But of course, the island tours are the most exciting part of the journey!

Where to Eat in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei
