Hi Soul Friends,

It’s Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome back to another short solo episode of Minutes on Growth. A few weeks ago, I hosted a free 90 minute manifestation masterclass on zoom where I discussed the 5 steps to manifesting, the dos and don’t of manifesting, the 12 universal laws, the concept of embodiment, and why doing mindset work is an important part in the process of conscious manifestation. I highly recommend everyone to get the replay link and to rewatch it as many times as they can since our subconscious mind rewires through repetition.

In the meantime, I thought I would break down the masterclass into smaller episodes for those of you who prefer weekly little nuggets of information. 

So let’s begin… when we’re talking about conscious manifesting what are we really talking about? Well we’re talking about the process of becoming conscious of the thoughts, beliefs, opinions and perceptions that we have housed in our subconscious mind and that we are subconsciously entertaining on a daily basis, because ultimately our experience of reality is shaped by those 4 elements. Those 4 elements impact our actions, our mood and our personality which dr Joe disepnza refers to as our personal reality. 

So now before we even get to the steps of manifesting, or the dos and don’t of manifesting, we need to create a solid foundation to manifest from. and this translates to decluttering our mind from what is no longer serving us. on average did you know that we have over 60,000 thoughts? that’s a super super high number. and now let me ask you think. how many of these 60,000 thoughts are empowering and how many are limiting? how many are you conscious of and how many are on auto pilot? so preparing the foundation means that we need to stop being a hoarder of thoughts, beliefs, opinions and perceptions that are limiting our growth, that are limiting us on our journey to our higher self, because the ultimate goal of life is to enter as person A, and leave as person B.

So this strong foundation correlates with having an aligned mindset, a growth mindset, an energy or aura that is in tune with source, where we are navigating and flowing with the current of life and not against it

In theory, this all sounds perfect. Whenever I do this seminar, everyone comments back “I love this, it sounds simple, how do we get started”. and If I’m being honest, it really is simple, but its not easy. why? because there is one character in this game that is committed to you not achieving this level of flow.. welcoming to the stage: your inner critic.

So we have two voices inside of our head: the voice of our soul and the voice of our critic. one feeds on love, and the other on fear, separation and judgment. which one do you think is which?

the inner critic, also referred to as the ego, the inner neighbour , is the clingiest voice that ever existed. it is the voice of constant judgment. it is the voice that separates us from love, from unity, from compassion. it is the voice that tells us we are not good enough, that we are not destined for greatness. it is the voice that feeds off drama, that creates drama.. think of the critic as the clingy unhealthy friend who doesn’t want you to experience joy elsewhere, because then you’d no longer want to befriend the critic who is always putting you down.

What tends to happen, that I notice a lot in my sessions with my clients at the beginning, is that they believe that voice of the critic is their voice. they mistake the critic’s voice as their own, and as a result start to create an identity around the critic’s actions. and over time that identity creates certain limiting emotions that they get stuck in such as shame.

so the first step in laying that foundation is recognizing which voice belongs to our soul, and which voice belongs to the critic. For example, our Soul’s Goal is always to Live a meaningful life, to do we what love, to feel fulfilled and to live with more ease. the critic however tends to create this feeling of fear & doubt within us from dreaming big. Often times, it narrates the following to us:

“This is too much. Who am I to want that house, that partner, that health, that abundance?”

It’s always the voice that says other people can have it, but I can’t and then it will list a million and one reasons why it’s not possible.

so the critic is the voice that delivers and feeds off all our limiting beliefs, and that is why it’s so important to do a mental detox and declutter these existing beliefs because they literally are the content that the critic uses to make us feel less than.

Now you might be thinking, thats great but how do I know what limiting beliefs I’m holding on to? So in the masterclass, I share a visual of a graph called the wheel of life. you can go on my instagram handle @minutesongrowth, and I have it on their too. this graph is divided into 8 equal parts, and these are all areas of our life that impact our experience of reality. they are in no particular order: health, career, finance, spirituality, friends&Family, significant other, hobbies&fun, and personal development. I want you to take a moment and ask yourself where you are in regards to each area out of 10 – meaning out of 10, how is your relationship with your finances? its super important to be as honest as possible when you’re doing this exercise. so ask yourself, where am I? now this is my favourite part… the areas that we give a lower number too, tend to be the areas that we have more limiting beliefs around. so if a client of mine tell me their relationship to finance is a 2 out of 10, then I know that we are harbouring a significant amount of limiting beliefs around money. so this is where we start. we start with the wheel of life and we get really honest and transparent with ourselves about where we are in life and where we’d like to go.

so before we can even engage in the process of conscious manifestation, we need to make sure the soil is ready for us to start planting the seeds that we want to see in our physical reality, and we do that by removing the weeds

now if by any chance, there’s a voice telling you that what you’re hearing is not possible, that its a bunch of mumbo jumbo, remember that it’s the voice of the critic and I just want you to take a moment and remember every single past success that you’ve had, and use those past successes to Believe in yourself, to believe in miracles. and to Believe that you can succeed in any journey that you set your mind to.

I’m going to end the episode here, and next week I’ll dive into the do’s and don’t of manifesting, and then the week after we will cover the 5 steps to manifesting.

Before I go, I just wanted to let you know that I’ll be hosting a manifestation retreat this summer in Mykonos from august 5th to the 9th in the most beautiful private villa overlooking the sea, where I’m going to be diving deep into this decluttering process and helping the attendees really become aware of what it is that they would like to let go of, and what it is that they’d like to start experiencing in their reality. there’s more information on my website http://www.minutesongrowth.com or you can reach out to me directly on social media for more information,

once again thank you for listening,

speak soon.
