Over the years I’ve developed a solid spiritual practice and I believe it’s why I’ve navigated a lot of my life, particularly my aviation career, with ease. I’ve spoken about my recruitment stories with Qatar Airways, Emirates and Qantas on my Youtube channel and I mention in those videos how I felt all of those jobs simply landed in my lap. You can watch the video on my recruitment with Emirates and Qatar Airways and now Qantas by clicking those links if you are interested to hear more.
What I didn’t mention in those videos, is how I co-created my aviation career by manifesting my desire to become a flight attendant into reality and trusting the universe to make it happen. If you’re reading this and it’s all beginning to sound a little woo-woo, stay with me while I explain magnetism from my personal experiences. Perhaps you might learn a thing or two and my hope is that you use these tips to attract your desires and live a life with less force and more ease.
Firstly, let’s get into the basics of magnetism, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Law of Attraction whether you’re a hardcore believer or you think spirituality is a load of nonsense. Whether or not you are a believer, the most important thing you need to understand is the Law of Attraction is always working regardless if you acknowledge it or not. Think of it like the Law of Gravity, you can’t see gravity but it’s always there, otherwise, we would be floating up in space! Each and every one of us is magnetic, however, it’s entirely up to you, and more so your subconscious what you will attract in your life.
To explain the Law of Attraction in a nutshell: the human body is made up of molecules that are vibrating at a very high speed – this is your energy vibration. Every single cell in the human body carries an electrical charge which can be positive or negative. The thoughts that you think, control the energy vibration that you’re in. That vibration is what you attract in the outside world, ie. your current reality. Therefore you’re attracting energy, people, money, situation, jobs, etc. that are aligned with your current state of being. If you’re looking for a quick overview of the Law of Attraction, I suggest watching Bob Proctor explain it in more detail here.
Now let’s talk about what I did specifically to draw in my desire to be a flight attendant and how I managed to make it happen so quickly. It was late 2016 when 26-year-old Danielle Murnane decided she wanted a career change to become an international flight attendant based in the Middle East and to travel the world. After deciding on three Middle Eastern airlines to apply for (Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways) with Emirates being my number one choice, I searched the recruitment part of their websites for instructions on how to apply for the job. I discovered that all three airlines required that I physically attend an open day to apply for the job. I also discovered all three weren’t holding any open days in Australia at the time I was looking. In addition to my findings, Emirates was not hiring at all during that period so it only left me with Etihad and Qatar Airways to apply for.
I made it a regular habit to check the airline’s recruitment pages for any updates on open days in Australia. While I was waiting I created a vision board for my bedroom wall – a vision board is a collage of images/words/photos that represent the desires you are trying to manifest into your reality. I printed photos of Emirates cabin crew and stuck them on my vision board, I also stuck images of places I wanted to travel and the self-portraits I took for my flight attendant application which were pictures of me with my hair slicked back in a tight bun, wearing bright coloured lipstick with a cheesy smile on my face. The key to a successful vision board is making your vision appear as realistic as possible. The self-portraits helped me visualise myself in the Emirates uniform as I saw an actual image of myself wearing the famous lipstick with my hair in a bun – I just looked the part. Every day I would look at my board and visualise myself travelling the world, living abroad and wearing a flight attendant uniform.
In addition to this, I started reading blogs online, watching YouTube videos and following popular Instagram profiles of Middle Eastern cabin crew to peek into the lives of real-life girls that had the job I was desiring. The more realistic your visualisations are, the easier it is for you to obtain them in your reality. It helped me to see other people have what it is that I wanted, it validated what I want is possible and it helped me imagine myself living their life, for example travelling to different countries, staying in hotel rooms, walking up and down the aisles of an airplane, and wearing the pinstriped uniform and red hat. Visualising can be difficult if we have a lack of familiarity with what it is we are trying to manifest. That is why it’s so important to become as familiar with our desires as possible, so familiar that it feels real.
If you know my story, you’ll know that I didn’t get the job with Emirates straight away. A month or so after I set the desire to become a Middle Eastern flight attendant, Qatar Airways hosted only one open day in Australia which was held in my hometown Melbourne. I was beyond excited when I saw the open day scheduled in Melbourne, I knew this was my opportunity to make my dream a reality. Even though Qatar Airways wasn’t my first choice of airline, I was still open to receiving this opportunity I had been granted. I walked into that open day with an open heart and open mind. I was receptive to whatever outcome I received. I believed that if the job was for me, I would be successful in obtaining it.
When it comes to manifesting, one of the key elements is to let go of the outcome. This is a lot easier said than done but truly such an important component to allowing in your desires. I may never understand why I didn’t initially get the job with Emirates, but what I do know is that I was first supposed to work for Qatar Airways before moving to Emirates and Dubai. Perhaps I wasn’t ready to receive Emirates at that point in time as my vibration did not yet match the vibration of an Emirates flight attendant. Perhaps there were certain things I needed to achieve in Qatar before it was time for me to move forward. At the end of the day, the reason doesn’t matter, but my point is that in order for us to receive our desires we have to be open to receiving them in any way the universe decides.
The universe always wants to give us what we want but when or how it gives us what we want, is really none of our business. As powerful as the Law of Attraction is and as much as I do believe that we are all so powerful in that we can obtain anything we desire, there is a greater force out there that outweighs the Law of Attraction and that force is called Divine Timing. Sometimes manifesting means stating our desires, trusting it’s on the way and surrendering to the divine timing of receiving it. Rather than forcing our will on the universe, we need to open ourselves up to receiving – when a door opens, say yes – just as I did with the job at Qatar Airways. Sometimes what we want is on the way (like my job at Emirates) but we need to go a different route than we first thought to get it.
If manifesting is that simple then why can’t we all have everything we want?
One of the main reasons why we block our manifestations from coming to fruition is due to limiting beliefs. It’s all well and good to ask the universe for a Lamborghini, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a Lamborghini is going to show up on your doorstep the next day. The reason why it doesn’t is that the subconscious already believes it’s not going to happen. In order to receive what you desire, you have to wholeheartedly believe that the desire is already on its way to you, that the desire is already yours even if you can’t physically see it yet. You need to believe it before you can see it.
If you’re more logical-minded and you’re the type of person to believe things once you see them, the best way to start manifesting is to start small. Start with small deposits in the bank to build up your level of trust in the universe, that way when you ask for larger things, you can be certain they will be delivered to you when the time is right. A great way to build up trust is by writing a daily list of things you are grateful for. If you seek financial abundance yet you are not yet receiving it, start with focusing on the things you do have an abundance of in your life, like the abundance of oxygen in the atmosphere. It may sound stupid but the more you focus on the things you do have an abundance of, the more abundance you attract into your life. I believe that is why I attracted my job with Qantas so easily, I now had the knowledge from my previous two recruitment experiences with Emirates and Qatar Airways that the right job will show up for me with ease and at the right time… and that it did.
Usually, if you are not attracting what it is you desire, it’s because there is a separation between you and that which you desire, you are vibrationally not a match. If that is the case, there is no need to worry as you can change your vibration almost immediately. It’s as simple as turning a frown into a smile, looking at the positives instead of the negatives, letting go of control and opening up to life’s endless possibilities. Remember, manifestation is a co-creative process with you and the universe – it’s not just you who’s creating the outcome. If you’re trying to attract more money, remember that money is already out there. If you are trying to attract your soul mate, remember your soul mate is already out there. All you are doing is drawing that desire to you but that desire must be a match in order for the attraction to occur. If we are not vibrationally a match, we may need to adjust ourselves in some way to accommodate our vision so that we are a match. Start by asking yourself, what is the dynamic between you and your current desire – is it close or far away? Does it feel real? If it feels out of reach, that’s a good sign that you may need to alter a few things in your life to raise your vibration.
Another key question to ask yourself is are you excited about your desire or how do you feel about it? The energy transmitted from our hearts (the centre of our feelings) is far stronger than the energy transmitted from our minds. The Heart Math Institute has done a lot of research on this topic which states “the heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body’s organs…the magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 100 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain and can be detected up to 3 feet away from the body, in all directions.” Read that again. Basically, while thoughts are very important in attracting what we desire, the larger magnetic forcefield is the heart and how that desire feels in our body.
It is important to remember that you are attracting what you are, your vibrational match, so in order for your desire to show up, you have to become really good at feeling the realness of having that desire alive in your body. Imagine how your body would feel driving that Lamborghini that showed up on your doorstep? How does it feel to push the pedal with your foot, grasp the steering wheel with your fingers, and turn the heads of pedestrians on the street as you pass by? It’s important to make the vision as real as possible, to feel as much detail of that vision inside your body – that is the true key to manifestation. Let that desire radiate over your entire body, letting it fill up every part of your being so that there is no doubt in your mind that this desire is true for you. Spend more time focusing on the non-physical feelings of your desire in the body, rather than the three-dimensional reality of it. This is where the magic happens.
If you’re new to this whole concept of magnetism, manifesting, or the Law of Attraction, however, you want to label it, my advice for you is to start really small. You don’t need to have all the answers figured out today, tomorrow or even in 5 years’ time. Begin your magnetism journey by asking yourself “what is it that I truly desire?” If it’s that job in aviation like it was for me, write it down. Perhaps create a vision board, follow some people online and begin making yourself really familiar with that vision. After this, ask yourself what’s the next logical step I can take towards my desire today? Perhaps it’s looking online to see where the airline is recruiting next or practising putting your hair in that perfect bun. Ensure you are fully open to receiving your desire and that other people’s agendas or ideas aren’t standing in your way. Sometimes family and friends are the sole reason why we have limiting beliefs around our desires. Don’t let anyone tell you that your dreams are too big or too small, only you know what’s right for you. Now ask yourself this… Do you, every part of your being, believe you can receive this desire?
If the answer is YES! Then take a step back and allow your dreams to come to fruition – Divine timing baby! If there is a part of you that doesn’t believe it, don’t judge yourself, instead, get curious about that resistance and look deeper into why you don’t believe you can receive it.
What do I need to release from my life for that desire to come to me?
What do I need to embrace to receive this desire?
Perhaps, there are some subtle shifts you need to take in order for you to believe your desire is on its way or maybe you discover that your desire is actually not as important to you as you once thought, perhaps it’s not aligned with your soul or what you truly want for your life. Either way, getting curious about limiting beliefs and thoughts is the key to releasing any blockages from our bodies. Once we remove the blocks, we open ourselves up to receiving more from the universe. We are taught from a young age that life is hard and that we need to work hard to achieve more. The older I get the more I believe the opposite to be true. Life can be as easy and as effortless as you make it, it all stems from the subconscious mind and what you believe to be your reality.
