How I Manifested Living in New York City


It goes without saying that the mind is a powerful thing, and of course having faith and good timing is extremely helpful, too. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could pull off my biggest dream, moving to New York City, but there came a time in my life when it felt like everything was pulling me toward her. And I think I manifested and prayed so hard that it would happen, so it did. Nothing great can come without working hard for it, so let me walk you through how exactly I manifested this dream come true!

In the beginning of the year, I made a mood board of all the things I wanted to see happen in my life in 2021. This was something I set as my desktop wallpaper on my laptop so whenever I opened it, I saw my goals and aspirations. There is something so telling about looking at something everyday that makes you subconsciously chase that goal, and I think that is what I did. I mean… obviously self growth and making a change was the theme here.

A few months ago in April, the full moon was going to be in Scorpio, my sun sign. This moon wasn’t like any ordinary moon, it was a supermoon that invites change. That change could be things like the decision to leave a job or move to a new location (both of which I did!). Of course it did help that I was wanting to do those things well before April, but the feeling of shift and resisting my current state was really strong during this supermoon. It really felt as if any and all hesitation to completely 180 my life left me. I realized how unhappy I was in my life and regardless of what I did, it needed to change for my own health and well-being. Well, I used this time to my advantage and I wrote in a blank journal exactly what I wanted; how I wanted to quit my job and move to NYC. When I tell you the tears were flowing… It was because I didn’t only want this change, I needed it.

After I channeled in that energy to help me make my dreams a reality, I worked hard to stay positive until the timing felt right. I saved up money for my move and did what I needed to do to push through. Work was a huge stressor and something that was absolutely emotionally draining for no reason, but it didn’t stop me from keeping my eyes on my main goal. Something celestial kept pulling me towards the feeling that I just needed to live in New York City. So I did it. I quit my job in June, prepped for my move and time with my family, and hopped on a plane with a one way ticket to NYC in July.

I’ve lived here for a few months now and I can confidently say that this is the happiest I’ve ever been!
