This manifestation sh!t really works - Project Me post 1073?


Not everyone may know who this is, so let me introduce you to one of my country music icons, Miranda Lambert. Her music has gotten me to be tough, grow up, give love a chance, get over heart break, survive tragedy & keep on going no matter what. 

I have dreamed of seeing her perform live, knowing that we don't get any country music heading to South Africa. Last night, as I watched her perform live, in Dallas Texas, tears of self pride and worth rolled down my face. 

I have had so many obstacles along the way, mainly financial ones, but I started to take #ProjectMe in the directions of working with my esteem first and watching how it impacted my finances, and it did. 

I'm sitting at the Dallas airport and waiting for a 30 hour journey home, but when I get back I'm turning all of this into a workbook for you and for me to dream bigger and achieve more. 

Note to self and to you ... It doesn't make life easier when we live with consciousness and purpose, it just makes everything we go through so worth while! 

Waking up in Nashville - Project Me post 1072

It's day 5 of my dream trip from New York to Dallas. I haven't done so much walking in years, but we literally walked New York. We saw two incredible theatre productions and took in as much as we could. It's an incredible city. 

Last night we arrived in Nashville and I felt my whole world become brighter and stronger. As the plane wheels touched down I felt my heart soar ... I made this happen! It's a whole new level of manifestation for Project Me and last night I kind of walked through the streets of Nashville in a daze. It was so much to take in that we went to bed at around 10:30.

My first blink this morning and I felt a tear roll down my face. I woke up in Nashville. I made a dream come true and it's not even country music time yet. I said thank you to me and to the universe and to me all over again. I'm in awe of the power if manifestation and feel so ready to create so much more. 

I'm struggling to find wifi ... It's far less accessible than I thought it would be, so sorry it's taken this long to touch base. Will definitely post in Dallas ...  


Traveling with a hundred hearts - Project Me post 1071

My clothes are all scattered on the fold out couch, important papers tucked in with my passport and airline ticket and sleeps are less than a handful before my #NYtoDallas becomes a reality.

11 months in the planning and being the girl who turned my passion for social media into a career, I haven't been able to stop thinking, that when I first started Tweeting and sharing my Project Me story into the CyberVerse, I did it because I wanted to show people that it's possible to live by the philosophies that my business partner and I use as the Foundation of Lifeology.
When I started blogging, I was still getting my business of the ground, spilled the beans about everything from my struggles with weight, to money to boy. Entwined in that have been my plans and dreams and the things I'm most passionate about and I was posting country songs, shamelessly, from the very beginning.

So, by the time I started to talk about one of my biggest dreams in the pipelines, I had already created the most special bonds across the social networks and shoved country music in people's faces that it was hard to ignore my story. I booked the tickets for the Academy of Country Music, Party for A Cause in Dallas almost a year ago and I haven't been able to contain my excitement. Between my love of cowboys and country music, I held myself back most of the time, because I didn't want to be that annoying girl who over shared.

Well, that didn't last too long, when the time ticked closer and plans heated up. Once I started to know which artists would be performing, the excitement exploded and I started to slap it all over the place. We never know who hides our posts or silences us online, but from the likes and comments, it's so very obvious to see who rally's around to support each other online.

Can I just say that the support and shared excitement for my trip has been overwhelming.

hearts traveling project me.jpgI have been completely overwhelmed by the people who have showed excitement for my trip. It's happened in the supermarket, at the beginning or end of meetings, from people I haven't spoken to in ages and some I've never spoken to before. I'm receiving Tweets and Facebook posts from people who don't know much about country music, but they thought of me when they saw something. Everything from pictures of cowboys to recorded snippets of country artists on the Ellen Show ... recorded straight from their TV sets.

I am touched, overwhelmed and so blessed to have the excitement of so many people to share this with and my wish is that it show as many people as possible that it's worth dreaming BIG!

Two more sleeps and I'm on my way. I will be doing updates on my Twitter: on Instagram at @jodenecoza and right here, so I hope you continue to share in the adventures with me as they unfold.



What to do when a dream becomes reality - Project Me post 1070

"Be mindful of your words!" That's all I have uttering to myself since I noticed the number of times I heard myself say, "I can't believe it!"

Honestly, for the longest time, I couldn't believe it, but then I started to notice the chaos that stood between me and one of my biggest dreams come true. It's one week away now and all fell perfectly into place, after I settled into the reality that I am worthy and powerful enough to manifest whatever I want.

Well, let's rephrase that ... when I am standing in Dallas, with Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and over 40 of the best country music singers a few meters away from me, I will know I can do ANYTHING!

If you're new to my story, in a nutshell, I'm a ridiculously huge country music fan, in a country where most people don't know who George Strait is and think country is Dolly Parton and Kenney Rogers, or worse ?... Taylor Swift!
For years I have imagined what it would be like to see one or two of my favourite singers or bands live. I would ponder on which one I would choose, knowing I had one shot at turning that dream to a reality. Of all things, I never doubted that I would see at least one and whenever I wrote a bucket list or imagined my biggest dreams coming true, country music was always there.

I bought my tickets 11 months ago ... wow, I remember how I pondered and how special people in my life eventually had to push me to do it, and now I'm rushing to finish the last of my work and buy a warm coat for New York, because that's where this dream begins.

Here's the real cracker and the point of this story: I'm not seeing one artist or band. I'm going to the biggest two day country music festival that the Academy of Country Music has ever hosted. I'm going to be seeing 50, yes FIFTY artists, spanning the 5 decades of the awards. That's beyond incredible. That's no wonder I was saying, "I can't believe it!" so often.

It's been a battle to get everything together, from funds running out because I'm an entrepreneur and that's how life goes, to passport drama at home affairs. I've had glitches in the business and had a few people questions if it's the right time to be going ... I've had every reason to rethink this and know there will be other times, but there won't.

Be selfish!!
Hold onto that dream with all you've got. Get to that point where you realise that letting go will do more damage than holding on. Know that you aren't alone and call on the people who will hold everything up while you go out and get what you know you deserve. The moment I did that, everything started to fall into place. I'm not even guaranteeing that things won't fall apart while I'm away, but I have absolute faith in everyone around me and I'm doing it anyway!

Scream, Dance and sing Hallelujah!

project me dreams come true?Literally!!
Years ago I went to a seminar by Mike Dooley, who founded Notes from the Universe. I was in awe that day and the one message that suck was, "do your woo hoo's". He made us say them out load, heart and soul.
I believe that the universe works purely on vibration and even when (if) we prey, it's the energy that is sent out there and not the words. From that day, I have been very conscious of my energy and for years, I had to force the dance of joy of the screams of gratitude, but I did something. Even with the smallest achievement, I would sneak into the bathroom (public ones at times) and cover my mouth while I did a silent scream of happiness and gratitude. It would invigorate me and I can only image the vibration I sent out into the Universe.

Call me crazy, but that's why I believe I manifested this dream come true.

Dream bigger!!
It's like getting the gods online and having their full attention, while you are in the midst of pumping belief, pride and knowing into your world, so while your vibration is high and you are floating on clouds, savouring what you have had the power to manifest, ask for more. Ask for loads more.

I'm not sure what I will plan for my life after I returned from this once in a lifetime, tick off the bucket list experience, but I know it's going to be huge. It's going to involve more for my business, my financial life and my bucket list is going to explode. It's going to take Project Me to another level and it's going to redefine what I know I want and deserve.

Don't compare the size of the dream!!
Yes, in my world, this is huge, but it's the smaller achievements that drove me to this. It's the dream of having my own business or working in the social media industry or that trip to Cape Town, buying my first designer handbag and standing in Tuscan after I watched Under the Tuscan Sun a hundred times, that got me to this.

It's not the size of the dream that counts, but the amount of energy that's launched into that scream of gratitude into the universe of the exhausted collapse onto the floor after dancing all of my gratitude out into the world ... it's that! It's my formula and I truly believe it!

Of course, I'm going to end with words from a country song, by Lee Ann Womack ...

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
