The Manifestation Power of Your Thoughts

Manifesting money, love, career, success, and most importantly happiness...

Here’s a casual inspirational talk I offered as part of 500-hour yoga teacher training in Sayulita, Mexico. I infuse scientific research with yoga techniques to offer tips on manifesting your dream life. These are just a handful of my personal yoga techniques that I have developed through years of self study and practice. They have enabled me to manifest my dream life: to live in the tropics and help people through teaching yoga.

There is a lot of practice that goes into the using your positive thoughts to change your life. I share many more of these techniques in my Intention Planning and Manifestation workshops and coaching, what I call Life Design. Every person deserves this kind of happiness, and it’s waiting for you.

Retire Young and Become a Mermaid


“Retirement is essentially living off your investments. I knew very early on in my career that the office lifestyle wasn’t for me. I looked around and realized I was expected to be in my 60s still in the office waiting for my retirement plan to kick in. I was good at marketing and business plans, so I thought, why not create a strategic life plan?”

“I’m now interested in life coaching and helping others reduce stress and create “marketing plans” for their life,” Rogerson said. “I always check in and modify my life strategy as my priorities change. I actually carry a lot of notebooks around with me all the time doing this. I’m interested now in sharing these tools and consulting clients on life design.”

Once upon a time, I put on a business suit each day and waltzed into the office with stilettos. It took about 10 years before I progressed to work fully remotely in my pajamas or bikini each day. Now, I'm fully retired from corporate life. I've spent a lot of time enjoying this freedom, but now I've organized my Life Design tools to share with you. 

What is your dream? Everyone has a different ideal life. Mine was to stop working and travel, but yours may be quite different. Whatever your dream, my tools can help you get there. Check out the Life Design section of the site to learn more. 

Change Your Life in 1-Minute Each Morning

“You are what your deepest desire is. As is your desire, so is your intention. As is your intention, so is your will. As is your will, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny.”



How do you start your morning, that very first moment you wake up? Be honest.

In the past, I’ve been guilty of waking to the alarm on my phone, which then means my phone is in my hand and by habit, my first moment awake, I was checking email and social media.

That’s a pretty passive, powerless, stressful and mindless way to start a day.

Fortunately, each morning is a chance for a renewal, a new beginning for the rest of our lives. So think about your morning routine. Maybe you do good things for yourself. Maybe you work out or go to a yoga class, maybe you enjoy tea or coffee and downtime. But it’s the very moment we wake up that has the most profound impact on our thoughts and successes for the day ahead.

How do you wake? Do you wake exhausted and unhappy that you have to get out of bed? Or do you wake up full of promise and positivity?

It just takes one minute each morning to vastly improve your day ahead.

Here’s how to change your life in just one minute each morning:

Every morning when you wake up, set an intention for your day. Ask yourself, “How do I want to feel?” or “What’s my deepest desire?” You can use the same intention each day or create a new one. Phrase this affirmation in the present tense (as if it’s already been accomplished) and use it as a powerful and positive way to start your day.  

When we first wake up, our bodies are fully relaxed and our minds are just starting to clear into awareness. We are still tapped into our subconscious state, which is the perfect time to really seal an intention within you.

This quick moment setting your intention each morning will change your life. Not only will you start each day feeling positive, powerful and uplifted, you will mindfully create your own destiny.
