Yesterday I got a text about Purpose… goal setting… manifesting miracles… you know, the stuff every personal development person on the planet talks about literally all the time. 😉 And something struck me. Why? Why do they talk about that literally all the time? It’s because of something that seems to escape most of us thanks to a world full of distractions and things designed to reduce our attention span to 3 seconds. Recently, I saw a glimmer (or maybe a starburst!) of why this topic is in everyone’s eyes, in the scriptures, over the pulpit etc. etc. and yet, there is something that seems to be very confused, and that’s what I want to try to clear up in this article.
When I was teaching slimdown, I saw the same thing in every single person I worked with… they didn’t feel like it was safe, or appropriate, to have a desire for themselves. Just something simple that was just for them. They had to make it about their family, or someone else in order to justify that it was righteous to go after it.
They were taught that malarkey somewhere along their path.
It’s a lie.
So, considering that having a desire that is just for you – like forgiving someone, or healing your feet – you know, something that really is to ease your own suffering – let’s take a look at the basic first steps that it really takes to land on finding your purpose… goal setting… and (the exact same thing) manifesting miracles.
What is the very first thing that you need to master?
It’s not complicated. It’s simple. Get ready.
There is literally nothing more to this first step than this, no matter who tries to complicate it and send you in circles. Here it is: DECIDE what you desire, and be cool with it.
Sorry if that was a let down. But it’s the only first step once you are ready to find your purpose, set a goal, and manifest those miracle. I know, I know… how very supernatural of me to point to something that we’ve had in our faces all the time, that IS supernatural, and that is part of who we are simply because we are offspring of God. What a let down that it’s not complicated. Hehehe!
Okay, so let’s shift a paradigm. I can’t tell you how many people have told me that they understand what belief really is, and that it “doesn’t work” for them. It’s a lot of people, and it’s simply because we have been programmed to think of belief in a Peter Pan way. “Just close your eyes tightly and act constipated, and WISH that you’re lifting off the ground to fly!”
Um… that’s not it. But they DO tell you the truth in that movie too. Right in the same scene. Think of a lovely thought.
The trouble is, that it’s not just ANY happy little thought. It’s got to be related to the miracle that you want to manifest. And more simply (and less confusingly) it’s a happy moment where you are celebrating that it worked.
“It worked! My feet feel amazing! They are healed!”
Imagine that moment when you are running to your favorite person to tell them that it worked! Hugging and jumping up and down on your newly healed feet and it feels amazing! Those feet feel like you are three years old again! Wooooo!!!!
Purpose, Goals, & Manifesting Miracles…Doubt
So then how about we define doubt? It’s equally simple. Equal and opposite. And YES it’s important to do something that the people who want you to spend tens of thousands of dollars working with them to “figure it out” say is bad: OVER SIMPLIFY IT!
Please DO oversimplify it. It’s what little children do. They just try it and do it. They are incredibly brilliant with imagination. That’s all this part of the process requires. Can you recapture that part of you that felt like things were real if you were pretending they were? That lovely thing that some older kid, or adult twisted out of you because it was too “supernatural” to them?
How cruel. (They didn’t know because it was done to them too, and by design.) God’s enemy hates it when we keep things simple and just do what the offspring of God naturally do. Forgiveness (meekness), humility (appetite for further light and knowledge – being teachable) and simple faith. Complicated faith… meh. I have never experienced that working. 😉
I’m feeling sassy today, I hope you’ll take the sass with a grain. I just take issue with how much we’ve been lied to by literally EVERY organization that we have trusted to teach us truth. They just crave to be followed, rather than turning people to LITERALLY take Christ’s example of teaching his disciples this stuff, and to do it too. He never told anyone to go to the doctor, did he? Nope.
Okay, back to doubt…
Doubt is picturing the problem. If you are trying to do faith and it doesn’t work, it is simply because the image of the problem keeps flashing into your mind, or your mind is swirling like a cyclone, not landing on the image of the scene of success.
Don’t knock it until you try it until you actually make that image of success second nature to you. It will work, but only if you are owning your own imagination in this simple way. It’s time to daydream. 😉
Why does it work? Because, simply put, this world is like a computer program that is just made up of atoms. Atoms hold together out of obedience. You are a creator and you own your precious body and have dominion over the elements of the earth… which are made of atoms. Little solar systems. Matter organized, that can be reorganized by the images of your own imagination.
“Oh Bronwen. You’re crazy. It can’t possibly be that simple.”
Like I said, don’t knock it until you try it long enough to discipline your own mind to have that image of success be the thing you think of when you think of the desire of your heart.
If you can do it on your own mind and body, then you are ready to expand into the world around you. Money abundance, relationships, etc. they all work the same way. Manifesting miracles is not as complicated as we have thought.

I hope you inspire someone today!
