When Pain Becomes the Pathway: Did I Manifest My Way into Training Medical Experts?

Did I Manifest My Way into Training Medical Experts?

For about 14 months, I had the most incredible pain in my left foot. 

It was so bad I had to lean on the podium every time I was on a stage.

If your job requires you to be on your feet for long periods of time and you’ve experienced something like this – you know just how helpless it can feel.

It was excruciating, and I had no idea what was going on. 

I saw foot specialists.

I talked to the neurologists I train.

Everyone kept telling me to find the BEST orthopedic surgeon. 

So, in my mind, I thought about orthopedic surgeons non-stop.

I was also traveling the most in my career – and I didn’t have a lot of time to actually make those appointments.

I finally found a great surgeon, and we were making headway…

I was spending more time than ever focusing on my foot and the healing process.

And then weeks later, you’ll never believe who called me up.

It was the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. 

Then, months later, I found myself in San Francisco coaching that medical association and dozens of orthopedic surgeons. 

Was it fate? Perhaps a coincidence? Or did I manifest this job? 

It’s quite possible I manifested it.

Manifestation means different things to different people.

And we all have varying levels of belief in its power.

For me, manifestation is very real and has benefitted me at different points throughout my life.

I think of it as a self-fulfilling prophecy. 

If you want something and you spend a lot of time thinking about it, you are going to modify your behavior to align with that desire. 

You may not even realize you’re doing it!

On top of that, there’s also credit due for being in the right place at the right time.

AND being OPEN when opportunity comes knocking at your door.

This story serves as just one testament to manifestation’s potential. By maintaining a focused mindset and unwavering belief in my goal – to find the best orthopedic surgeon – I may have inadvertently attracted the very opportunity I sought.

Sometimes, the most remarkable opportunities arise when we least expect them. 

This isn’t the first time this has happened to me.

I went through five IVF rounds to have our daughter.

After the fourth round and losing twin baby girls in the second trimester – I started thinking about adoption and living without having children. I started to compartmentalize and come up with all my backup plans to protect myself.

A therapist told me to stop protecting myself with all these backup plans because she said it was actually hurting my outcomes.

She knew I wanted a girl. She told me to imagine the day she was born. Who was in the room? What color were the balloons? What time she was born? How did I feel? 

She was showing me how to manifest.

And I didn’t just think about it.

All that manifesting made me go 100% in.

I read books on how to make the best eggs and embryos. 

I went sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

I did all the fertility yoga, massage, and acupuncture I could possibly schedule.

She was born in April five years ago. My little baby girl will be five in just a few weeks.

I manifested our daughter.

Have you ever experienced a challenge so intense it seemed insurmountable, only to find it led you to unexpected opportunities?

The next time you face a daunting challenge or find yourself yearning for a particular outcome, remember the power of manifestation. 

Cultivate a mindset of belief, remain open to unexpected opportunities, and trust in the journey ahead. 

Who knows? You might just manifest your future.
