Hey guys! I hope you’re all staying safe & healthy during these times. I’m sending everyone lots of love and light! Today I wanted to talk about manifestation, following your dreams and passions, and finding the light even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic.
I think it’s super easy to get bogged down right now by all of the craziness happening in the world, because duh. This is heavy stuff! If I can find one light in all of this darkness, it’s this: we have time that we didn’t have before. Am I right?
I think time is one of those things that we use as an excuse to not follow our dreams. “I would love to start my own business, but I don’t have the time.” “I’ve always wanted to take up that fun hobby but I don’t have the time.” Time. It’s a powerful thing that truly controls our lives, especially when we feel like we’re lacking in it. The one (and probably only) thing Coronavirus has blessed us with is a little extra time on our hands. What will you do with yours?
I have so many dreams for my life, and lately I’ve had extra time to think about them. I’m someone who’s always felt a bit lost in life, whether that be with my career, where I live or my relationships. I’ve had all of this extra time to reflect on my life, my goals and what I want. After listening to the Manifestation Babe podcast (I love her!!) per her recommendation, I watched the movie The Secret the other night (it’s on YouTube for free here) and I feel like it helped me so much to get clear on my life and be unafraid to be myself and pursue my interests. And then The Secret got me into manifestation!
My podcast this week is all about manifesting your dreams in life. Whether it be love, career, health, or some other path on your life’s journey, we as humans are actually capable of manifesting whatever we want into our physical reality. It sounds crazy, but it really does work. I have subconsciously manifested so many things in my life, I wonder what it would be like to actually consciously and actively choose to manifest something! I’ve decided that I want to manifest my dream life all around. I’m not sure how that looks yet, but I’m working on doing meditations daily and visualizing myself in different dream scenarios. There’s actually a free guided meditation that I lead on my podcast Saturday Night Liv Podcast that I would love for you to listen to.
Anyways, I would love if you gave the podcast a listen, but I will make future blog posts and podcasts on manifesting specific things in the future too and I would love your feedback. Much love and light to everyone out there and I hope you’re staying safe!
So today I want to teach you guys how to start your own podcast! In full transparency, it’s super easy. I started my podcast in under 24 hours for basically FREE. If you want to learn how to start your own podcast follow these steps…you could seriously have your own podcast by tomorrow if you follow along 😉
Podcast Name & What It’s About: This is the most fun! Coming up with the name of your podcast and what you want it to be about is always fun because you get to be creative with it. What topics are you passionate about? Is there something you feel that you could talk about for hours? And for coming up with the name of your podcast, think of fun plays on your name (that’s what I did!) What words does your name rhyme with? Are there any puns having to do with the topic at hand? This may take awhile to get the perfect name, but bounce some ideas off of your friends and see what sticks 🙂 Even comment on this post and I can help you too!
Create Your Cover Art: I think this part is so fun too! Creating your cover art that will be featured for your podcast is way easier than you think, and it’s also another fun way to express yourself and get creative. Go to this website to create your cover art super easily, and FOR FREE! They even have podcast templates to help get you started.
Get Your Equipment: This is where you may need to do some Amazon shopping! I’m going to assume that everyone has a computer, so we don’t need to invest in that. But something that you may need is a USB microphone. I use this one and it was cheap and works perfectly fine! If you don’t want to spend the money, you can try recording with just your computer microphone and see if that works well enough for you. If not, order the mic!
Recording Software: Again being fully honest, I use a completely free app to record my podcast! Download it here. It’s super easy, free, and user friendly.
Record Your Intro: You’re going to need some cute music for your intro and outro on your podcast! I found my free music from this free for use music website here. It was super easy and quick!
Find Your Podcast Host: You will need a podcast host to basically house your podcast. This is how you get featured on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and more. The easiest and only podcast host I’ve ever used is Buzzsprout. Sign up with this link to receive a free $20 Amazon Gift Card when you sign up for a paid plan! (Basically getting your money back plus more) 🙂 They also have the option for a free plan, but I pay as little as $12 per month with my plan and it is 100% worth it for the amount of podcasting time I am allowed to upload per month.
Have Your Guests Call In: This is my secret sauce to having podcast guests call in from all over the world, for free! But you’ll have to listen to the very end of my podcast episode to find out what it is 😉 Click above to listen!
Let me know if this helped any of you to start your own podcast! I have been podcasting for almost one year now and I am so proud to share how much I’ve learned along the way ❤
