I’ll never forget the day the email popped up in my inbox. The subject line? “Necker island and your invite for April 17!!!”
I sat there in total disbelief. This had to be a joke. After all, I was just a “regular” entrepreneur, and I had no connections to anyone super-famous or uber-successful.
But here’s what’s fascinating: two weeks beforehand, I had stumbled across an article about Necker Island (which is located in the British Virgin Islands, and owned by Richard Branson), and casually decided that someday, I would go there.
It was an offhand declaration of “I want that”… a sort of, “yep, I’ll be there someday”. I literally thought the thought once and didn’t think of it again. So I was no less than flabbergasted when this email showed up in my inbox – an invitation from a dear friend to join her for a mastermind experience on the island.
I didn’t realize it consciously then, but I had unwittingly used a “secret formula” of sorts to manifest that invitation. Since I was a kid, I’ve relied on a specific set of techniques to create downright magical results in my life and businesses – yet until relatively recently, I didn’t know exactly how I was doing it. I just knew that anything I put out there into the world tended to do really well, that if I wanted something, I tended to get it, and that for the most part, life just kept getting better.
More on the formula later – but for now, back to the Necker Island story.
My friend informed me that one of the things we’d be doing on the island was having a “Superhero Night” party, and that I should bring a costume. I immediately knew I wanted to bring the “Galaxy Girl” costume that I had bought for the previous Halloween (I kind of have a thing for extraterrestrial stuff).
As I was shoving it into my overflowing suitcase, I remember having the thought, “wouldn’t it be funny if Richard Branson saw me wearing this at the party and made a joke about how I should be the mascot for Virgin Galactic?” (Virgin Galactic is Richard Branson’s company that hopes to take “space tourists” up into the skies starting next year).
Again, it was just a passing thought – like the 50,000 other thoughts I probably have on a typical day. I giggled to myself, finished my packing, and went to bed – hoping I wouldn’t be too wound up with excitement and anxiety to sleep.
The next day, as I headed to the airport, I was extremely nervous. I knew I’d be staying on Richard’s private yacht, the Necker Belle, but aside from that, I had no idea what to expect.

I flew from Montreal to Puerto Rico, where I hopped on a ridiculously tiny propeller plane that took me to Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands (it’s the closest airport to Necker Island). A friendly young British guy named Oggie picked me up, drove me to a nearby marina, threw my suitcase into a marshmallow-esque speedboat, and introduced me to a lovely woman who worked in PR for Necker Island (she was sharing the boat ride with us).
Before I knew it, we were surging out to sea under the most insanely beautiful star-spangled sky I had ever seen. It was truly surreal – and completely enchanting.
What happened from that point onward was pretty much a string of “is this real life?” kind of moments – from talking about mediumship with Patricia Arquette, to touring the building site of the new home that Richard Branson is building on Mosquito Island (the other island that he owns), to brainstorming ideas for how Virgin Unite can make even more of an impact in empowering young entrepreneurs in Africa, to playing with lemurs and giant tortoises, to partaking in a “goddess ceremony” at the edge of the ocean.
But the night of the Superhero Party took the cake. There I was, drinking Sauvignon Blanc in my Galaxy Girl costume, and reveling in the experience of being in the presence of some of the world’s most successful heart-centered entrepreneurs – including Richard Branson.
That’s when it happened.
Just moments before the photo you see above was taken, I got my official introduction to Richard. The first words that came out of his mouth?
“Great costume! Maybe you should be the mascot for Virgin Galactic!”
May jaw may have literally hit the floor.
Clearly he was kidding, but regardless, I was shocked. What were the chances that he would utter the same statement I had envisioned him saying to me when I was packing my costume a few days earlier?!
What was going on here? Had I fallen into (or out of) The Matrix? Was there a glitch in the system? Or was I being given a glimpse of some greater Truth – a wake-up call of sorts?
My mind was racing. It was already pretty crazy that I had gotten an invite to Necker Island, a place I hadn’t even known existed for most of my life, not to mention one of the most exclusive destinations on the planet, right after I casually “decided” I would make it there someday.
But this was a whole new level. There was definitely something I was supposed to learn from this. I felt as though I’d found a chink in the armor of “life as we know it”. I sensed I had been given a taste of what could be: of infinite possibilities. Of magic. Of bliss.
Of course, it’s possible that this whole thing was just a bizarre coincidence. But after putting together the pieces in my mind, I began to wonder if these two occurrences were totally random, or if I had somehow played a role in bringing them about.
People talk a lot about “manifesting” these days. I wasn’t really on that bandwagon back then, but I had to admit – it did kind of seem like I had *manifested* the invitation to Necker Island, as well as (somehow) the comment that Richard Branson made to me.
And that got me thinking: how the heck did I *do* that?
Justin and I about to embark on a helicopter tour of Maui, during our work-play travels in 2012/2013
I wanted to know. NEEDED to know. So I attempted to reverse-engineer the other times in my life when seemingly unbelievable things had occurred. Such as launching an online course and making over $100,000 in the space of a few days. Such as being able to travel the world with my husband, running our business from our laptops. Such as generating a whole year’s worth of business from one blog post that I wrote. Such as being presented with a trail of clues that allowed me to solve a mystery that had stumped me since childhood.
Yep – all those things had shown up in my life over the past few years – but I suddenly acknowledged that they hadn’t happened *to* me. If I really thought about it, I saw that I had CREATED them. And I knew that if I could identify HOW, exactly, that I would have hit on some pretty amazing wisdom.
It also occurred to me that if I could understand how I had done it, not only could I put the “technique” to work in my own life, I could share it with others and help them to realize their own unique dreams – which has been a major theme in my work for the past several years. I love to create and launch online programs that empower, inspire, and open up people’s minds.
So – how exactly DID I do it? I spent some time feeling into it, but I still couldn’t figure it out. I put it on the back burner for a while, and life went on as usual.
And then, in another magical chain of events that I won’t get into here (but that you can feel free to ask me about sometime), I was led to start studying the Laws of the Universe.
That was the missing key. It unlocked a realization that made me feel like I was about to burst into technicolor flames. In a blinding flash of excitement, I realized what the secret was.
Without even knowing it, every time I had manifested a breathtaking win, event or circumstance, I had been working with the energies of the Unseen World.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had an affinity for the Unseen. I love searching for things that are hidden, and I’ve always been fascinated by the idea that there are invisible forces at work in the world. And once I stumbled upon the information about the Laws of the Universe, it was like I had been given the missing piece of the puzzle.
For the first time, I was able to qualify and quantify the mechanics of the magic that I had always sensed is the basis of existence. I now saw that the forces that had so intrigued me for my whole life are what underpin everything that happens on the planet. And best of all, I finally “got” the specifics of exactly what I had done to manifest that trip to Necker Island, and that comment from Richard Branson.
So what next? Well, I want to pass that knowledge on to you. It’s time. The world is ready. You’re ready. And the shifts you’ll experience as a result of stepping into this “HD” version of reality are beyond your wildest imaginings.
But you don’t have to be psychic, or a mystic, or some kind of “chosen one” to work with these benevolent forces in order to manifest whatever you want to do, be, or have.
The Unseen is quite literally waiting to partner with you, starting right this second. In fact, it’s been waiting for you to wake up and smell the coffee for as long as you’ve been alive!!
It all happens in the space where science meets spirit. With a dash of quantum physics, a pinch of deep-diving personal exploration, and an understanding of the Laws of the Universe in your back pocket, you’ll be poised to attract everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Whether that’s a visit to Necker Island, or just a weekend away with someone you love.
Whether that’s a new car, or becoming a published author, or having a full docket of clients who you absolutely ADORE serving.
So… are you ready for your initiation into the Unseen World? Are you ready to make 2015 the year YOU start experiencing your own astounding synchronicities, miracles, and magic?
