Hello! I know so many need guidance in understanding how to figure out what on earth we truly want. Then once we know, it’s crazy to come to a conclusion on what is the most important dream and what steps to take next.
Manifesting is not hard, it is easy. It does mean you will labor, but you will fall in love with the labor! I’m continuing my series so a map can be drawn out for you to follow. Don’t take this lightly and don’t go in a rush! Stop, consider, and figure out where your own personal flow is!
You CAN do this! I want to show you how and I want to know what you created! So, lets do this thing!

Close your eyes for a moment and meditate on what you really want in life. This might take some time for you, but it is worth the time! Consider what truly makes your heart sing. You will recognize the special thing you dream of because it will bring a smile to your face and an enlarged space in your heart area. Stay fixed in the expanded heart feeling. When you feel love extending outward, you are in the space of manifesting your dreams.
We manifest with thought, emotion, and creativity. This is not a strange philosophy, nor is it a part of religion. Manifesting and creating is a part of your natural abilities your Creator gave to you from the beginning. There might be situations where you have manifested in your life, but not even realized it. If you can manifest areas of your life naturally, you can also do the same thing intentionally. You were born for creating!
I gave this post the title, “She Wanted Grapes, so She Built an Arbor,” because it hints at the foundations needed to get what you want in life. Building a foundation is very easy once you know how. Books upon books have been written on subjects such as the law of attraction and manifesting. I have read many of them! Honestly, I have found some effortless ways that manifesting and creating can happen.
First, you need to create and plant the arbor. Creating the arbor means you will build a foundation where you will be sure to manifest your result.
Here are some simple foundational elements:
Discover what you truly want in life; what makes your heart sing. It might take some deep consideration but don’t worry if many things pop up! Find the one that stands out to you the most, and start there. There is no limit to manifesting and planting new seeds toward whatever you dream about for your life!
Learn to meditate and visualize the full result of your creation. Draw the love and energy you feel when you see your full manifestation! This might be joy, happiness, love, energy, vitality, or fulfillment. Let yourself go with it and feel away! Your emotion will draw your creation closer to you and put it at the forefront of your life.
Look for synchronicities that support your creative process. The concept of synchronicity was first related to us by psychologist Carl Jung. Synchronicity is happening when situations or clues reveal themselves to you that are connected to your dream or creation. For instance, if you are manifesting a blue car of a specific type, you might see that car everywhere all of a sudden. The vehicle has meaning to you because of your dream and meditative visualization. Although that blue car is not connected to you, personally, it is a signal that your manifestation is working.
Meaningful events might also occur to guide you. These might be words that come out of someone’s mouth which seem spontaneous or out of the blue. Yet, the individual’s words have meaning when met with the dream you visualize in your meditative time.
Then ACT! Take actions that are revealed to you concerning your creation! The action part is vital. We are partners with our Creator, the universe, and the powers that be! Being a full partner means inviting all power given by God to create in your life. Being a full partner also means doing your part and taking the steps needed to construct your new arbor. Construction has steps, takes patience and time. Keep looking at the grapes! I don’t literally mean grapes, of course. What I mean is the end of the process, your dream!
Loving you from here!

36 “There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage,37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem”
Anna was a prophetess from the tribe of Asher. Asher means “happy or blessed”. She was the very first woman to spiritually behold the incarnation of the living Christ when she prophesied over Jesus in the temple. She spent most of her time in the temple praying and worshiping God after her husband had passed away. It was thought that maybe her husband had been a prophet of God but that is not completely determined.
She never remarried after her husbands death and it is thought that she was most likely in her 100’s when she saw Jesus for the very first time. When her eyes beheld Him, she instantly knew she was looking upon her Savior. Her discernment was keen and her vision far surpassed physical vision. She “saw” things in the Spirit.
Where did this anointing come from? Back then, there was a physical temple, so Anna spent most of her time there before the face of God. She had relationship with her Father which translated into a prophetic gifting and discernment. Today, our “temple” is within us where Holy Spirit resides. When our hearts become saturated with the praise, worship, and prayer life that Anna had, we can be as discerning and gifted as she was as well. The Lord uses women and gifts them for His purposes!
To prophesy is to preach or to utter something that is unknown to make it known. It is a spiritual utterance that comes from spending time with our Savior. Revelations come from relationship with our heavenly Creator who gifts us through His Holy Spirit and through the life of Jesus Christ within us! The Apostle Paul had stated to the church that he wishes that everyone could prophesy even more than speak in tongues. To prophesy is to speak from the very heart of God. God’s Holy Spirit leads us into all mysteries, so it is completely possible to speak of things to come, of deep things that others might not see, or to have discernment that leads ourselves and others to victory in any situation.
Above all else, dear ones, ask for the gift of prophesy! Then don’t be afraid to receive it! God sees us all the same through Christ and we can be gifted for different purposes. Anna’s purpose was to proclaim the fulfillment of the first coming of the Messiah. God can equip us to proclaim the visions He has for this season and beyond! Another prayer of the Apostle Paul was that God would give the church “depth of insight”. This means to see into deep things, whether within another person, ourselves, or a situation.
All of this takes a relationship with our God through Christ.
Dear Lord, Baptize Your daughters with the power of the Holy Spirit. Gift each one with the Spirit of prophesy and use their gifts to glorify You! Empower women to be all You have called them to be and inspire each one to heal one another as they heal. Hold them in the palm of Your hands, Lord, and let their hearts soar with the completion of their earthly purpose and on into heavenly realms! In Jesus’ name. To God be the glory!
