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


So often I’ve been told, “You are so lucky. How did you get this/that/the other?”

There are some things in life we are more fortunate to have than others, of course. We are all blessed with certain talents, abilities and surroundings. This is a fact of life. However, we also have the choice and freedom to be the masters of our destiny. 

Remember that. You create your own life. YOU are in control.

But I believe something more powerful is going on in my life. I truly believe all I am receiving and have received is because of my vision and the very simple law of attraction. I am slowly but surely manifesting my dream life into a reality – and it kind of freaks me out sometimes. I put something out there, I vision my dream, and it comes alive. It’s as simple as that. It does require work and attention, though. Hard work is always required.

I am putting this out there with the intention to share with you how you, too, can create all that you desire. I don’t want you to get the wrong impression about my intention here – it’s not about what I have or what I want. This post is about the power of the mind. Our thoughts and beliefs manifest into reality. They really, truly do. I only recently began to understand this. I want to show you how…

  • I meditate on the life I want to create each day and, incredibly, it comes true.
  • I believe in the power of positive affirmations and try to start my day with them in mind.

When I look back on my life just a few years ago, I see that I was creating my life then too. I wasn’t in a healthy frame of mind. Everything was hard. Everything was a challenge. This was my day-to-day mentality, and I continued to attract “hard” and “challenging” situations.

This is the law of attraction at work. I wasn’t living my dream life at all, and I was holding onto incredible amounts of stress. It is my belief that when we hold on emotionally, we hold on physically. Stress will always stop us from achieving our best state of health. I believe this is a huge reason why my weight kept creeping up. I was holding onto emotional – and physical – baggage.

Now, my living mantra is let it go. LET IT GO.

Now, being in a healthier frame of mind, after lots of self-healing, counseling and education, I have shifted my mentality. I now believe my thoughts will create my reality so I take very seriously what I say and what I think. I am more careful. I know if I state, “I will not get that job,” it is likely I will not get it. I also know if I envision my dream home, for example, and imagine myself living in this dream home, and BELIEVE I can have this dream home one day, it will happen. It has happened.

You can live the life you have always wanted. 

You just have to DREAM it and BELIEVE you are worth it. Focus on those two words for me.

When exactly do I practice this manifestation?

Our body listens to our thoughts and feelings. This is quantum physics. We are manifesting those thoughts and beliefs physically (without even realizing it). When we constantly tell our bodies they are “fat” or “ugly” or “not good enough,” we manifest bodily stress. It will physically cause a cascade of issues. On top of this, our bodies start to believe these feelings are true!

This is what I realized, and this is what I put in to practice. I will be back with part two to explain exactly how these manifestations became reality. In the meantime, I want to know what YOU have been waiting for. The time is now. What will you manifest in your own life?

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
