Do you wake up with a million things to do, mind racing while running out the door? You might be a slow to roll gal taking your time to get out of bed with a meditation and writing practice as your morning routine?
I love to check in with my body. It sets the tone for the day for me, so I know how to treat myself. I don’t want to find myself with the foot on the gas pedal when my tank is empty.
Adjusting my style lens… the spectacles that I look at my body with has been revolutionary for me and my clients.
I like to start my day with something I call, Micro-Manifestations. It’s a way of listening to your inner voice. These manifestations end up making you look and feel good when you show up to the yoga mat or a Discovery Call. When you’re in the right mindset, the world is yours. You can magnetize whatever you want.
This is a perfect time to start putting these manifestations into place. You are primed and ready for change like the leaves changing colors.
How to Use Style Micro-Manifestations to Get What You Want
It begins with knowing how you want to feel. Then you can use style to create those feelings NOW. The best part? All of this information is already inside you. Just close your eyes and listen. Ask your body what it needs?
When you’re present, big changes can happen on the smallest levels.
Cue that email pining your inbox asking you to speak at your dream event.

These manifestations start with the most basic choices and stretches outward far beyond your outfit choices.
When you meet the needs of your body on a micro-manifestation level, it sets in motion a cascade of positive events. Adorn and serve your body, because this allows you to open the door to something greater. You can activate that greatness, because you have a super strong foundation in place.
Even if you don’t know what you want right now, by just focusing on these micro-manifestations, you’ll get there. Sounds crazy, but it’s true. You'll be shown the way and because you’re listening to your body and giving her what she needs, this allows you to RECEIVE.
Know that old saying, “Fake it till you make it?” It sort of applies here, too. Except this isn’t just your outfit – it’s your energy and emotions.
Here’s How This Process Works:
When you magnify your soul, the world can see you without the chaos created from your mind. Without insecurities clouding your world, it’s a clear, direct filter to your energy.
Basically, cast yourself in the role of your vision. See yourself selling your idea to the world and feel them getting excited about it. You can sell that vision because you believe in yourself. It’s an inner and outer manifestation. It sounds crazy, right? Way too simple. But trust me, it works.
Let’s Work Through an Example:
You need to feel: CONFIDENT THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING:
Type of situation: Job Interview, Getting on Stage, Sales Conversation
Step 1: Where are you feeling fear, anxiety, or unease in your body around this upcoming situation? Often people experience fear in the stomach.
Step 2: Pick an article of clothing that will give you support and reinforcement in this area of your body. For example: high-waisted pants or a wide belt.
Step 3: Ask yourself where do you feel love in your body? When you’re a heart-centered person and you start projecting your passion and love, that energy is going to be communicated out into the world.
Step 4: Pick an article of clothing or piece of jewelry to enhance the feeling of passion. You can enhance that area either by using a piece of jewelry or by wearing a deep V-neck, which would help you signal to the world that you’re energetically embracing self-love. It’s a small micro-manifestation. It almost makes you overly conscious of the need to project love. Look for something to enhance and highlight the heart area.
Step 5: Add a comfort layer that you can decide to shed when it’s time or keep on depending on how you feel in the moment. You can wear a really high-quality cashmere wrap sweater or wrap your body in a way that it feels safe and protected. It’s okay to toe the line here a bit. I mean, we can’t always walk around in performance mode. It’s not sustainable. Instead go with the flow of your cycle and seasons. Knowing when to serve your body, so that you can get to that next level is super important. Everyone's going to feel vulnerable and nervous. It's okay to have an extra layer, and then right before you get on stage, you take that layer off. We want to see you!
Step 6: Show up and shine. Release and receive. You’ve dressed the part, supported your energy, and now it’s time to let the energy do the rest.
Every day we have a choice. We choose how we adorn our bodies. We choose what we’re going to project. Micro-manifestations seem like really small actions, but when you start using them on a daily basis, you’ll be amazed at the results. It’s as if what you begin to project to the world is completely refreshed. You feel stronger, fiercer, clearer.
