Today I am delighted to share energetic space with Megan Bord!
“I was in my early 30’s when I stumbled onto a few tips that helped me manifest things as if in an instant, and I realized that the more I practiced, the easier manifesting became. I also know that everyone has this ability and that there’s nothing special about me.
In The Pocket Guide to Manifesting I share my learnings & experiences related to manifesting everything from job promotions and near-million dollar job offers, to exceptional romance and mashed potatoes. There’s nothing too big or small when it comes to manifesting, and my desire is to share how easy the process is with anyone who would like to know.” – excerpt from the Introduction to Megan’s book The Pocket Guide to Manifesting
Megan Bord is a Personal Manifesting Coach and published author. She believes everything is possible, including miracles, and that everyone has the ability to manifest easily, immediately and abundantly. Known to her friends as the “Goddess of Manifesting,” Megan has personally manifested myriad experiences and tangible items in the areas of romance, finance, travel and home. She shares her manifesting skills so that all who choose may live the peace and joy of boundless possibility.
Please note: Megan is one of my closest personal friends. I love her energy dearly; her presence in my life enriches and enlivens far beyond what words can express. We met a few years ago through our then-blogs and manifested a visit. Since then, our friendship has blossomed – including many conversations about manifesting….Megan truly is a “Goddess of Manifesting”. It is with pure love and gratitude that I share her message and energy with you here, in this Facets space.
J: Thank you for sharing energetic space today! May I ask, as we consider energetic space, might you share, what is the feeling you intend for your personal energetic space?
M: Thank you, Joy. It’s a pleasure to be here!
I always intend the highest vibration for my personal energetic space. For me, that’s the energy of love.
J: May you share, what are some of the practices you use that consistently nourish that space?
M: Each morning when I wake up, the first thing I do is to surround myself with the White Light. I then surround my cat, my boyfriend, and his dog. (…since we’re all so tightly intertwined!)
Only then can I start my day. I guess it’s sort of like a professional athlete’s superstition and pre-game rituals in a sense!
As I walk downstairs, I thank my house for letting us live there and for being so good to us. I’ve found that gratitude – to sentient beings as well as material things – fosters a higher vibration.
J: You so clearly have a specific message; may you share with us a little about how you found your voice, and how you continue to cultivate it as you create and connect?
M: Before I wrote The Pocket Guide to Manifesting, I had a blog that talked about my experiences creating a more joyful life – one where every experience could be viewed as a lesson in spiritual growth. Some people enjoyed it, and urged me to start writing a book. I did, but that manuscript remained unfinished after the first round of editing because I realized the subject matter wasn’t my complete passion.
What *was* my passion – and what lovely people like you encouraged me to focus upon – was manifesting. I’d gotten good at it, manifesting near-million dollar job offers, movie-worthy romantic trysts, a dream job, a dream home and more. And it’s something I love. I’ve found that when we’re doing what we love, our voice rises up to meet us.
J: When you are creating and doubt surfaces (does doubt surface?) what resources do you rely upon as you continue to create?
M: I take a break. If my mindset is one of doubt, I know that’s not a good place from which to create, so until I can change it around (through affirmations, being with uplifting friends, or other positive influences), I stop what I’m doing. My sole focus becomes raising my vibration from one of doubt (aka, fear) to one of centered assuredness (aka, love).
Watching clips of The Ellen DeGeneres show always helps put me in a more positive, upbeat frame of mind.
J: May you share a bit with us about what you would consider is the source of your power?
M: I think in the past few years I’ve come to realize that *I’m* the source of my power. (I hope that doesn’t sound egotistical!)
I’m the one responsible for my energy, my thoughts, my actions, and what’s happening in my life. It’s my thoughts and feelings that create my everyday experiences, so I’ve learned to keep things as pure as possible. I seek positive influences, friends, stimuli, etc. When I’m feeling low, as I mentioned earlier, I reach out to others to help shore up my energy again. Not just anyone, mind you – but those I know who are love-filled, centered, and supportive. (That’s you, Joy!)
I’m careful about what music I listen to (no whiny, woe-is-me lyrics for this gal), what TV shows I watch (no commercials, news, violence or drama), what Facebook posts I read, etc.
I treat my thoughts and feelings as the engine of my life and I like that engine to run clean.
J: In the introduction to your book you state: “I’m an ordinary person who figured out how to use thoughts and feelings to attract extraordinary experiences in miraculous ways”. Has manifesting consistently been so “easy” for you?
M: Manifesting was tougher in the beginning, when I was learning how to do it *for me*. I think everyone comes around to their own style of manifesting – the thing that works for them time and again.
In the beginning, I think I struggled because I grasped my desires too tightly in my mind and trusted the Universe too little. Once I learned to trust the beautiful balance of wanting and letting go, things shifted. Manifesting became a fun game.
“Wouldn’t it be cool if…?!” as opposed to “I really really really hope I get…(xy or z).”
I think something happens to our energy when we’re relaxed about the outcome – whether or not we get what we desire. I think it opens us up to receiving, actually. When we really really really want something, though, and are consumed by how it’s going to happen, if it’s going to happen, the fact that we don’t currently have it and what if we don’t get it, etc. I think we smother our desire. It’s like the old adage that the best way to get someone you like to notice you is to act like you don’t care whether or not they ever do.
J: One of my greatest joys is the experience of manifesting with you – it feels natural, easy and fun; a rare treat as my life is not yet full of manifesters (other than my children). I loved sitting at a cafe table sharing visions together – a conversation that felt rich and full of possibility. Do you often manifest with others or is this practice something you do solo?
M: Joy, you were my first! I tend to manifest on my own, although when I mentor others, my client and I are manifesting together, but both of us are focused on them so it’s not quite the same.
The day you and I sat in the café manifesting was priceless. The energy was high, our dreams felt good and enlivening, and best of all it was FUN!
It helped that both of us believe everything is possible so truly, there were no limits that day. Let’s do it again soon!
J: You share many of your personal manifesting experiences in your book. May you share with us a recent personal manifesting experience that is not included in the book?
M: Ten or fifteen years ago, there was a diamond commercial running in the States. It featured a man and a woman walking hand in hand in a busy, touristy spot in Italy or France. At one point, the man stopped and shouted at the top of his lungs (in front of a crowd of people), “I LOVE THIS WOMAN!!!!!!!!” The woman was shocked and slightly embarrassed, looking around to see who was watching them. When she looked back at him, though, she saw he was holding a diamond ring, to which she replied in a delighted whisper, “I love this man!”
I’ve always loved that commercial, mostly from a standpoint of, “I hope someday to be with someone who loves me *that* much, and who’s that silly and wonderful and surprising.”
A couple months ago, the commercial popped back into my head for some reason. I didn’t say anything to anyone about it (why would I?!), but remembered how it delighted me. A day later, as I was walking through a parking lot holding my boyfriend’s hand, he stopped and shouted, “I LOVE THIS WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!” …just like in the commercial! God bless him and God bless the Universe, that was a fun moment!
J: If someone is not completely familiar, or comfortable with, manifesting consistently, what is the first step you might recommend to them?
M: Start small. While the Universe knows no bounds when it comes to delivering to us the stuff of our dreams, if our minds are doubtful, it affects our ability to manifest.
Practice manifesting small things at first, and build confidence. From there, go a little bigger, then a little bigger still.
For some people, it’s easier to manifest an extra $20 than it is $200, $2,000 or $20,000. The Universe doesn’t care, though. It will send us whatever our brains will allow. But boy, we have strong brains, don’t we?! Like bouncers at a bar, keeping the so-called riff raff out! I say, FIRE THE BOUNCERS and let the party begin!
J: May you share with us, what has been a “memorable moment” for you, regarding the creation and publishing of this book?
M: A memorable moment for me in publishing The Pocket Guide to Manifesting was holding the first printed copy. I fell in-love with it on-the-spot. It was every bit as beautiful and polished as I hoped it would be.
J: And, my last question for all interviews in 2013. Please answer this question: If someone “really knew me” they would know these two things about me:
M: If someone really knew me, they’d know:
- Not to touch my eyebrows ever (weird, I know, but it goes back to when I was a teenager)
- I am mesmerized by sparkly, shiny, colorful things and therefore am absolutely in-love with kaleidoscopes, Christmas decorations, rainbows, and blingy gemstones.
