Ep. 62 Manifestation, Joy, and the Power of I Am with Lauren Sanders of The I Am Journal

Welcome back to Seek The Joy Podcast and happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!

Today we’re taking it all the way back to Episode 12 of the podcast with Lauren Sanders, the creator of The I Am Journal.

The I Am Journal is a beautiful manifestation journal that helps you transform your thoughts, raise your vibrational energy, deepen your spiritual journey, reprogram your subconscious mind and manifest with ease.

When this episode originally aired it was the end of 2017 - which, in many ways, was a totally transformative year for me. I could feel that 2018 was going to be a big year for all of us, full of so much goodness - and boy, was I right.

So much has shifted and changed since this episode originally aired on December 26, 2017 - and it’s really wonderful to be able to sit down and re-listen to this episode and hear how much I’ve grown, how much we’ve grown as a show, since that time.

I decided to re-air this episode with Lauren for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s one of my favorites to date. Lauren is such an incredible light and she’s brought such an incredible gift into the world. I’m so grateful we connected at the beginning of my Seek The Joy journey - she’s been such an incredible friend to me and the show. The other day I realized that there are SO many new listeners (which is just incredible) and friends of the show, this community has grown so much over the last year, and there are guests and episodes that you might have missed.

Second, the direction of this show is about to change in a truly beautiful way. We’re still going to have the same conversations, storytelling, and solo episodes - but I’m really feeling the nudge to share more about my spiritual journey. This is really going to kick off this month with a series of conversations with my spiritual teachers (I am so excited I can’t even tell you), and sharing a conversation about manifestation and spirituality felt like a no brainer.

SO, I am so excited and grateful (insert heart eyes here) to introduce (or re-introduce!) you all to Lauren and The I Am Journal, and this totally transformative conversation on manifestation, joy, the power of “I Am", why it’s so important to take time to journal, taking action from alignment, opening up about our spiritual journeys, and so much more.

I’m so excited about this one and can’t wait to hear what you think! Make sure to join the conversation on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Once you realize and put into practice that joy is a choice you get to make every single day, and in every single moment of your day, your entire life changes.
— Lauren Sanders

Manifestation and the law of attraction are tools that I started to learn about and implement around the time this episode originally aired. I certainly haven’t mastered these techniques, but I’m excited to learn more and to dive deep into how they can help all of us.

After searching for a manifestation journal to accompany her own journey, Lauren "stopped looking, and started creating."

Lauren wants to help others live the life of their dreams through journaling and manifestation. With The I AM Journal, Lauren is sharing the same powerful daily prompts that she used in her own journey. Lauren walks you through your personal transformation by providing you with the tools to make your burning desires a reality. The journal includes powerful daily writing prompts and daily mindset transformation exercises that make manifestation accessible and easy to use. 

Our thoughts absolutely become our reality. You can create the life that you want, but you have to make the choice to think differently, to feel differently, and to act differently. [You have to] really train your mindset, and work your mindset like any other muscle.
— Lauren Sanders

Your mindset becomes your reality, and with The I Am Journal you prime your mindset for the day to get you on track and into alignment right away. When you're committed to working on your mindset, you're becoming a better version of yourself. (#Truth)

We're manifesting all the time - it's just a matter of what we're manifesting

Lauren breaks down the strong connection between joy and manifestation on today's episode. Joy plays such a strong role in the manifestation process. It’s all about staying in that joy and happiness so that you're already vibrationally compatible with what it is you are seeking. 

I’m so grateful that Lauren breaks all of this down on today’s episode. By thinking, feeling, acting and believing as if your desires have already manifested themselves in your life, it opens the door for the universe to deliver them. 

The words you put after your ‘I Am’ absolutely become your reality.
— Lauren Sanders

Lauren also explains that for manifestation to work, you have to take action. The I Am Journal includes space to outline three intentional actions to take that day to attract your burning desires. The key though is to make sure that you're taking these actions from a space of alignment. 

Lauren is such a kind, sweet soul and I loved connecting with her, hearing about her process creating the journal, the role manifestation has played in her life, joy, gratitude, and much much more.
