My New Year's Manifesting Ritual

Three steps to manifesting in the New Year.

New Year's Manifesting Ritual in Cannon Beach Oregon

Each January for the past five years, I have driven to my favorite spot on the Oregon Coast (Cannon Beach) and done this manifesting ritual. The first year I did it with a best friend, and that year both her and I, manifested the biggest items on our wish list, things we'd dreamed of for years. Then I did it with a small group of women I had come to my home for a retreat, again we manifested so much that year.

And last year, I drove out in the pouring rain and did the ritual myself, and wound up manifesting more in 2021 than I ever have in a single year! So, it works.

To give you an idea of just how powerful this is, here's a little of what I manifested in 2021

  • My son Kanen getting a full academic scholarship to his dream school the University of Oregon. This was HUGE as it pays for all his tuition.

  • My son getting an offer to play football at his dream school the University of Oregon.

  • I started my dream company Centrella Co.

  • I built my dream team.

  • I took my daughters on our first girls trip to Italy.

  • I booked my first international retreat, taking a group of women with me to Italy this summer!

  • Got my third traditionally published book deal with a major publishing company.

  • Stayed consistent with my workouts all year, attending Barre3 five days a week.

  • My girls started high school and are loving it.

  • Kanen graduated high school with honors.

  • My business grew by nearly 50%.

  • Took my girls the the Alamo Bowl where Kanen lived out one of his major dreams.

  • Got my girls up-graded to first class for that trip.

  • Made new girlfriends and work mentors.

All of that change happened last year, and ALL of it was something I have written down in my #lifeplan and on my #futureboards some for just a year, others for much longer, but 2021 is the year they manifested. And yes, I manifest for my kids too. Those items relating to my kids are ones I've written down, put on boards, talked to them about, encouraged them using the #HBRMethod to make happen, so it's a family win!

This year I did it with my daughters, so it was extra special. They did all the same work and I think it sparked some new ideas and expectations in them as well. It was the perfect day yesterday, and we got to watch the sun set together when we finished. I know 2022 will be epic in the best possible way, and I want it to be for you and your family as well.

My 3-Step Manifesting Ritual


The first step is to let go of everything that no longer serves you. Write down on a sheet of paper: "I release..." release old negative beliefs, thoughts, feelings. Release old habits, and any limiting beliefs. Basically anything that is not moving you forward, write it down.

When you are finished find a safe way to burn it, truly letting those things go. They are now part of the past, the you, you USED to be.


Spend some time journaling about the past year. Write down everything you were grateful in the past year, everything that went right, ever win you had, everything you manifested, every bad habit you changed, every belief you changed, everything you accomplished. Write all the good stuff! I call this taking inventory on how far you've come.


Now that you have let go of the past, shown gratitude for the present, it's time to create the future. Write down everything you want to RECEIVE in 2020 and beyond. What do you want? How do you want to feel about yourself, how do you want others to treat you? How do you want to spend your time? What goals to you want to accomplish, things you want to have, experiences you want to live, people you want to meet or spend time with, where you want to go, how you plan to take care of your mind and physical body. Write it all. The life you LOVE takes work and vision to create, it won't magically fall into your lap, so take time to intentionally create it.
