I manifested our house!


My mind! She’s blown! I manifested our house! It’s quite the miracle story, good enough to share and hopefully inspire.

For anybody who doesn’t know what is happening in the San Francisco bay area, there is a MAJOR tech boom goin’ on. People are moving here in droves to capture a piece of “the boom” so it’s crazy expensive, ultra competitive and uber-piled with people. I did not move here for this reason, I find it annoying and could give a rip about tech. I moved here in 2003 because to me it’s the most beautiful land in all the world. I feel like I have a wing span miles wide when I am here—limitless in thought, creativity, expansion, and possibility.

So knowing this place is a freakin’ gong show at the moment, let’s bring in some magic. Or manifestation, if you prefer. I enjoy the word ‘magic’ because when I see the word I hear, “blliiiinnnngggg!” and I see twinkles of glitter. Since our eyes are sometimes able to interpret a better story than our words, this is going to be a visual story.

About two weeks ago, my husband found a sweet little house listing and IM’ed it to me at work. Instantly the poor man’s IM was inundated with “IT’S MY HOUSE!…MINE!…THIS IS MY HOUUUUUSE…I’VE ALWAYS SEEN IT…HOLY…” Fill in the gaps with shitcakes, holy nuggets, and a few f-bombs because my mind, was totally blown. I’m sure my enthusiasm was endearing (or obnoxious) but he really didn’t understand at the time that I had seen this house in my mind for years.

Below is an excerpt of the love letter we wrote to the seller…

We submitted our offer at 11:00 am on 10/3/14. By 3:10 pm our offer was accepted.


You saw the drawing, right?  Now…see the house below.





We beat 4 other offers! One was an all cash offer with a higher bid than ours and zero contingencies. And still, WE GOT IT!!! We had an amazingly supportive and speedy team of realtors and a stellar mortgage broker too, but the determining factor was the seller. She used her HEART to decide. I have no explanation as to why we got this house. We were even denied putting in a pre-emptive offer and thought for sure we were goners. What I know is that I never let go of my vision, nor did my confident ground shake as I stood strong amongst the competition. I was slightly nervous but not barfy or overly anxious. I threw the decision up to the stars and kept telling myself, “I KNOW this is our house.”

So here we are, in the thick of escrow, and in two weeks we will have the keys. NUTS?! Today our house was appraised so we got over that hurdle with these exact words from our real estate agent, “Hello Monica, In 23 years doing real estate, this is fastest freaking appraisal I ever got.” The stars have clearly aligned and we are moving fast…but not furious. Fast with graceful confidence I would say.

How awesome will it be to finish writing my ayurvedic book in this super pretty space!? I can’t wait to get in there at the end of the month! I still don’t know how I got it…well, or maybe I do. I emailed this story (with letter and house pics) to my former life coach and said, “My higher self is seriously shitting bricks. Actually, my physical self is shitting bricks. My higher self is nodding and grinning because she knew all along.”

Who else has a story like this!? I know so many of you do. Please share!!! Can we please rally with our fun stories of what our higher self knew before we did? XOXO. Eternal thanks goes to Harriet, Ana, Pascal, Ted, Anet & Pat!

    Also, don’t make any big purchases or rack up new credit/debt til after you close!!! Really excited for you :) Congrats!

    • Monica says:

      Caitlin, TOTALLY! In 2006 I saw that movie…when I started on my little quest to make my life better :) Shortly after, I found Ayurveda! Thanks for the advice too – we are holding tight on finances until it’s all over. Thank you!! SO excited. Can you imagine really pretty Ayurvedic videos shot at this place?! I sure can! :) XOXO!

      • Caitlin says:

        That would be amazing! It’s absolutely beautiful; I would certainly feel inspired there!

        I work in Marketing for a mortgage company, so I always feel obligated to give out that specific advice whenever I see people are buying a house :)

        Can’t wait to hear more from you (especially about Ayurveda) after you move in! You are my favorite Ayurvedic blogger :)

      • Monica says:

        Weird. My first job was in the design/marketing dept for MGIC (mortgage guaranty insurance corporation). I love that you gave me the info! :) THANK YOU for being a loyal reader. I am excited to deliver more great stuff soon! XOXO!

      • Caitlin says:

        Super weird! That’s one of our vendors :) Small world!

      • Monica says:

        Whoa! Totally small! One of the top 2 companies I’ve ever worked for – I heart them.

    Congratulations, Monica! That’s so fantastic and magical! Something like that did happen to me, 7.5 years ago. One night, I sat in the dining room of our apartment with my friend, putting together a vision board on which I included a lot of detail about the house I wanted to buy with my husband. The next day, we received listings from our realtor and one of them jumped straight out at me. It was *the* house, the perfect house from my vision board. We went to see it the following weekend and as soon as I walked in, I just knew that this is where we would live. It smelled the way I knew it would smell. Even the art work on the walls looked exactly like the art work on the walls of the house pasted on my vision board. I literally felt goosebumps on my arms. Magic!

    This. Is. So. Awesome.

    It looks just like the drawing!!
    I do collage art therapy for manifesting goals so I ADORE stories like this. And because I’ve been following you forever I know this isn’t just an internet tall-tale.

    Go you! Much love :)

    • Monica says:

      Joy!! XOXO! TOTALLY! OMG I would love to collage art therapy with you. I have a vision board too – crazy enough I put a prAna tag on there…and now I’m writing for their Ayurveda Life Series. Magic keeps happening. Do you ever do art therapy as a webinar? If so, please invite me!! MUCH LOVE back at cha, sista!

      • joy says:

        I have actually been thinking about doing a webinar collage session!! Oh my goodness if you would be into coming, I will TOTALLY make it happen :) thank you for reinforcing that idea! And I’m so happy to hear you have a vision board and that it’s working so well for you :) there really is a crazy kind of power in making goals visible.

      • Monica says:

        YES! Do it and I will totally come! :)
