Be a Badass Spiritual Manifestor.!

Updated: January 22, 2018

Years ago when I first got introduced to the notion that my thoughts and emotions created my reality I couldn’t get over the simplicity of the concept.  Then I wondered, why was this not taught in school?! It was when I read a book by Florence Scovel Shinn called “The Game of Life and How to Play It” that the light bulb went on with an almost blinding light of recognition. Once this wisdom opened my eyes wide, I then gobbled up every book I could get my hands on, my favorites by Ernest Holmes, James Allen, then Catherine Ponder. This led me to A Course In Miracles and then Louise Hay.

It’s no surprise I ended up a Hay House author, given I ate slept and breathed this subject of manifestation and our role in it all.  I also recognized the spiritual solution to life, and how everything worked so differently than perception allowed.

That is, of course, the big fat dilemma and why I say you really need to learn how to be badass about it! You need so much courage and conviction to make this work because everything in our world suggests otherwise. Our five senses trick us into believing we’re separate from each other and from the world we perceive. We experience time as something other than the truth of what it is too, trapping ourselves into believing in a linear life disconnected from our true power- which is that we are always tapped into Source- the energy of the universe from which we were made.

The universe is alive and conscious and is in everything, animating all of life that we see and even more of what we cannot ever possibly see or know intellectually.  If we go deep inside where logic has no place we will connect to that knowing, that still small voice, that says yes we are partners in this universe and it’s up to us to co-create it!

The evidence that we are miracle makers is everywhere but so is the limitation imposed on us in the way we’re made. Every day we wake up we face  the challenge to surrender to the illusion of being separate and powerless while at the same time, if we’re courageous enough to trust in another way to live, we can tap into the magic and the miracles that abound in this world if we learn to discipline our minds, and tune our hearts to a higher note committing to the universe even when conditions temporarily show us something very different.

If you believe it first, then you will eventually see it in the outer world. Being a badass spiritual manifestor means you need to say no to the world you see now, and yes to the one you can’t see yet. Crazy as it seems, it works! You may not have a clue the what form your desires will take, and its actually much better if you let that be in the universe’s hands.   However, you sure can know how you want to feel. If you practice that daily, owning it with every fiber of your being, some days just “acting as if”, you will be shocked at how quickly the universe will respond.

The world is moving at such high speeds these days that some days I think it takes balls of steel to say no to what you don’t want, so you can say a real yes to what you do want, slowing yourself down long enough to really know yourself, and what prevents you from living your dreams.

I know you can do it. Even if you’re afraid of all the consequences that change might bring, this is why we are all here. We are emissaries of the universe- representing the Great Creative impulse, both the art, the Artist, the paint, paintbrush and the canvas. We’re stewards of this world we call home and always invited to participate in co-creation. The challenge is; can we summon the courage in spite of our fear and conditioning? I say a BIG YES! You see that’s all it takes to be a baddass spiritual manifestor. That’s all we need to do it! Say yes, know why we want what we do, and let the universe dance with us.

Tell me, what do you want to say yes to? What would being a badass spiritual manifestor mean to you? What secret belief would you have to give up to have that courage? I can tell you mine. I was always so afraid I was too different, too weird that I would never fit in, never be mainstream enough, never be good enough to be accepted by smart educated people, and that I would be shunned by religious people because of my spiritual views. I tried to fit in, to conform and none of it worked- ever.

It took a long time but I finally gave all that up, gave my fears to the universe found my honest and true authentic path, summoned the courage to just be myself! Believe it or not but it was not easy to make that choice because I was afraid I would somehow be punished for just being me. and look at where I am now! I can honestly say I am a full blown badass spiritual manifestor! Every day I wake up grateful.

So will you join me?  Only magic and miracles await if you do 😉

  • Sandra

    The title of this blog made me laugh my head off. Perfect timing! Thank you Colette. I needed to read this today. :]

  • Walter Carlos-El

    Greetings Mrs. Baron Reid. I just wanted to say that I don’t know who you are in totality or the Force that you are connected to, but I can only keep thinking this thought…. “This Woman is Impossible!!!” I think to myself, how is it even remotely possible that she can create a random online card picking system that is Always Right. And the other thing is that you are in recovery? Heaven has got to be playing some kind of joke because it’s hard for me to grasp. I have purchased all the decks you’ve created. I get messages all the time that I understand ever so clearly with the tools you’ve created. Thank you for being here on earth.

    Dear Colette ..
    I did join you !! And miracles abound !! .. My life has many many many ‘pinch me’ moments these days.

    The secret belief i had to give up was that being psychic made me un-friendable.
    Yup, in my mind i wanted friends more than anything !

    Now i have a life with both, fun friends and inspiring intuitive work to do.
    Thanks for everything .. and thanks to google for offering your site as answer to a late night query in 2014 ?(i think).. since then the tiny flicker of hope i had, has grown into a full fledged flame ! .. You are magnificent ! .. Many Blessings xox Love Lisa ..

  • Brenda Mary

    I’m manifesting atm but not quite a badass
    But I am getting there every day I bring a little more to my world, of how I’d like to live, be grateful, be happy, be in good health, and generally live life to the fullest.
    Thank you for OS, for your blogs, for camp, and for coming into my life I’m forever grateful for that.

  • Cynthia Eyer

    I highly recommend “The Solace of Fierce Landscapes”, by Belden C. Lane. The transpersonal qualities are the essence of spirituality.
    Much love and Magical Blessings in the Light!

  • Anna

    Just what I needed to hear. The Universe have been pushing me to get out of my comfort zone and be a Badass Spiritual Manifestor! Perfect timing as always! Love and Light <3

  • Renee Sugar

    Saying “YES” means that I am a part of a process which is so much larger than I can possibly understand. For me; it means taking steps, opening new doors, meeting people that are also OPEN to collaboration, willing to discuss options, possibilities; and potential forms. It is challenging for me the “trust” issue. Handing it over; means that a higher perspective is in control. I do not control the outcome; but I do have full reign over my attitude; thoughts and perspective. HOW Honesty, Open-minded, Willingness.
    Remember Audrey Hepburn; the word IMPOSSIBLE contains two words. I’M POSSIBLE. Something to think about when the self-doubt; and fear come to attempt to derail some brilliant plans. Ultimately I believe that ” whatever I desire, that is aligned with spirit; is on the way.” Dr. Wayne Dyer. WHEN????? At the divinely-timed moment not usually determined by my will, or limited vision. THY WILL be done “through me”. Oh me Oh my; Life is full of opportunities, and when you are OPEN to possibilities, possibilities OPEN.
    “You have brains in your head, and feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in any direction you choose; you’re on your own and you know what you know; and you are the one who’ll decide where to go”. Dr. Seuss.

    Hi lovely. Always enjoy your videos. Love all your cards I have every pack except the postcards from spirit. Have your books. Still getting through uncharted. Thank you for making me feel normal.bless you Please come to the uk one day.🔥🔥💕

  • Ranie Mulligan

    Yes, Florence Shovel Shinn’s book also gave me that “aha!” moment. Her book came into my life at perfect timing as did your books and card decks. Your Oracle School helped me with co-creating my desires and seeing the bigger picture. Thank you for exponentially moving mankind in a HUGE positive direction!

    Hi Dearest Colette
    ( and Tribe)
    I don’t know if I’m at ” Baddass” level of manifesting but I do know that I sure do love my life. It was superb before, and now so enriched by having found this wonderful and vibrant Tribe .
    I find inspiration , loving encouragement, fabulous, supportive feedback on my insights, simple joy and wonder at how many gifts each of us has to share; this is the space which you, Colette ( definitely a Baddass Manifestor) have created for us all. I just love it here and had to say so out loud.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.💖🤗

  • Jane Grey

    Dear Colette,
    As a metaphysician specializing in conscious creation, transformation and manifestation, I can attest that you are the REAL DEAL. I love your work and follow your weekly videos. You have such a delightful personality and a great speaking style and delivery. I live in Paris, France and would be thrilled to organize a gig for you here. Thank you for everything does not begin to express my appreciation. With love. xx

  • Jo-Ann

    #Me too !! Flo Shinn seems to have kick started the ‘Game’ for lots of us. It was 1992 for me, and she is still my ‘go to’ at 3am when my issues of self doubt crowd me. Colette, your blog/inspiring words are food for my Soul. Blessings to you. Love Jo

  • Emilia Motyka

    Powerful blog! Thankyou. I took notes. Wow – oh those fears! You expressed that amazingly. That’s helped me identify some of my own…”punished for being Me”; shunned by religious” “not good enough for smart,educated people”(starts with my lovely brother who happens to be a Professor & a Sister who is highly certified); then “too different,weird, not mainstream enough”. Gosh! This has been clarifying, identifying. Humble thanks Colette. I admire all that you do and are. I can now Hand In (to Universe) my list of fears & summon up Courage. Awesome. 🙂

  • Karen

    Hi Colette,
    A few months ago I threw everything away; books, cards, stones. I felt that universe wasn’t helping me.

    I always thought I was the most spiritual person. I was so disappointed. Then right before Christmas I met a lady at work. We clicked but didn’t know she was spiritual. Our lunch was four hours long. She’s very spiritual and it was like she opened me up again.
    I am Dancing with the Universe now

    • Colette Baron-Reid

      spiritual is a verb honey.. and its something we uncover within us.. we do have to surrender to our humanity too. WE are both light and dark- spiritual isn’t perfectionism. I am thrilled to hear about your new friend!

  • Manasi Joshi

    You are so inspiring and so is your work! I can feel your authenicity every time I read something you say. Thank you for being ‘you’ so that all of us can work towards being us. You are right Colette, we are afraid of something which can be a block to our manifestation. Well my fear was that I am not good enough, not complete enough, not whole enough not right enough to get what I want and of course the fear of being judged and ridiculed for being different. Fear of failure and of not getting what I think I should be. I am working towards all of these fears. I think I have come a long way. But yeah still get into doubtfulness and pessimistic attitude at times. So a long way to go. But yeah I am a work in progress and yes hopefully on my way to be a badass spiritual manifestor like you!!!

    • Colette Baron-Reid

      its’ a day at a time, lots of self-compassion and courage to change what you can and surrender to what you can’t. 😉

  • Cindy

    What in the world is going on with your blog lately? I had asked the Universe to send me something to comfort me, and read the above. Something about The Game of Life and How to Play It called to me, and lo and behold, it was free on my Kindle reader. I read it in one night. It contained the answer to why I felt I needed to be comforted, and gave me a specific affirmation to say to work through it.

    Whoooeeee! AND it’s comforting to have a solution provided so easily! Two weeks ago it was the meditations that helped me with something else. I’m really looking forward to next week! I’m asking the Universe to send me an experience that will allow me to post a response that starts, “I have a really hilarious and cool story to tell you about what happened to me after I read your blog this week.” ; )

    • Colette Baron-Reid

      well I am excited to read it lolol oxoxo ps y blogs are like oracle cards… haven’t you noticed?

      • Cindy

        Not until now, after having gotten back into meditating with your phenomenal meditations!! I really enjoyed The Net. I was thinking that it would be fabulous to have a series of semi-guided meditations, starting off guided, taking the meditator to that groovy floaty place, and focus on a feeling or the answer to a question while the sounds and/or music continue. I have listened to gazillions of guided meditations, and never found anybody that did that. Please tell me that you’re working on something like that already like last time!!

  • Christel

    I love your weekly blog Colette.

    I express my gratitude to the Universe everyday I go home, and now, when I wake up as well. Thank you. I’m working up to the 5 minutes a day you suggested in a previous blog – not quite there yet – but I’m working on it. Can’t wait to see the manifestations of my gratitude soon. 🙂
