From Vision to Reality – How I Manifest My Dream Life, Part 2


So – what did I do to manifest my dreams?

 With my body:

  • Since I began my healing journey, each day I spend 5-7 minutes in gratitude for my body while visualizing the body I desire. I feel incredible gratitude for my body. I literally say to myself, each morning as I open my eyes:

 “Thank you for my balanced hormones.”

 “Thank you for my comfortable weight.” “

 “Thank you for my optimal digestion.”

 “Thank you for my strong arms and legs.”

My body listens to my thoughts and manifests them. These affirmations are powerful, and my body loves me for them. My body loves me back.

  • I literally mediate on my dream body. I picture the body of my dreams each night before bed. When I had just started my healing process I used to actually look at a picture of the body I desired and say, “with the power of my thoughts, I can create the body I desire.” The Gabriel Method really inspired me to do this. I definitely recommend his book if you have a broken relationship with food and your body. I say over and over, “My body is healing.” “I am naturally healthy, at a weight that is right for me.” I said this because for most of my life, I told myself I was not thin enough. The affirmation that my body is right where it is supposed to be has been incredibly freeing.

With my business: 

  • Everything about the JShealth brand has truly been an organic tale. I simply started writing about my story and the foods I was eating. Everything happened naturally from there – but there was a secret behind this. It didn’t “just happen.” I had a vision. I had a strong dream about the kind of career I wanted to have. I have dreamt of it since I was a little girl (dream big!) and I kept imagining myself living my dream job. Through my self-healing, I began telling myself I was worth it. I was worth having a successful business. But more importantly, one that I would wake up each day and feel excited about. I never let anyone tell me otherwise – and they tried!
  • Just the other day I was saying to my PR girls that I would love to trial out the new Eco friendly Ford car. I pictured myself driving this car. The very next day, Ford contacted me to test drive their car. We are still freaked out! Oh and I am LOVING the EcoSport Ford.
  • I still have moments when I doubt my capabilities and myself. When I doubt it, something knocks me even more and I have to shift my mentality; remind myself of my vision. I swap that “negative” thought to something like “you are worth it and you can do it.”
  • I also believe that if you feel you are financially strained, you will always continue to attract situations that keep you strapped. Each day I state to myself “abundance flows to me” and “I will always be financially safe.” I continue to have a vision for the JShealth brand and I believe it will come alive. Because “the universe is on my side.”

With my personal wishes:

Until I met my partner Dean, I literally would visualize my dream partner and living my dream life with him. I could close my eyes each day and imagine it. I was also doing a lot of self-healing work (therapy, yoga, meditation, reading) to build up my self-esteem so I could believe I was good enough to receive my dream partner. This is a huge part of the secret.

I also pictured the home I wanted to create with him. I visualized it. I felt the feeling of living in it. I believed I would live in it. I literally created a folder that said “Dream Home Ideas” with the very street I wanted to live on. Just last week, we bought a place on that street. I believe I manifested this dream.

So, my friends, dream big. Think positively. And believe you are worth the life of your dreams. You are SO worth it.

I encourage you to believe in the power of vision boards. All of the above can be manifested in the form of a vision board. Tell me – what is on your vision board? What are you manifesting for yourself?

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My  copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time.  My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.

With kindest regards Samantha

I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.

When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.

I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.


Hey Jessica!
I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again

I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!


Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.

Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!


I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).

I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud
