When I first started my business, I was proactive in being ready to celebrate. I purchased multiple mini bottles of champagne, and I affixed to each one a post-it note listing a specific business goal or dream that I had. Each time I manifested one of my goals or desires, I’d pop open that bottle and toast my achievement! 

Since then, I’ve shifted from champagne to other types of celebration, but the intention remains the same – to consciously step into the high vibe energy of celebration, even before my dreams have been manifested.

Getting into the energy of celebration BEFORE you’ve accomplished your goals will allow you to tune into the same energy that you will experience once your dreams have been manifested. This will enable you to energetically align to the dream far more powerfully – and issue it an irresistible invitation into your manifest reality!

But this is far from the only reason why you should be creating conscious space for celebration. In this episode of Soul Guide Radio, I reveal the amazing benefits of cultivating an intentional and aligned relationship with celebration, and share my most powerful tips to help you get started!

  • How our social conditioning affects the way that we think about success (and how this shapes the way that we approach celebration)
  • The right way to celebrate your unmanifested dreams – and how to make celebration a part of your everyday life

This Week’s Invitation:

Make a list of your everyday ways to celebrate. Categorize them as small, medium, and big celebrations. Visualize experiencing them and doing those things so they actually trigger feelings of joy.

[00:00:00] Hello, my dear ones. When I first started my business, I did this thing where I would get

[00:00:10] And I would put post it notes on them of business goals and dreams and desires. And whenever that goal or dream or desire was manifested, I would drink that champagne. And then it kind of got to be a thing. For my husband and I, like we would cork a bottle of champagne anytime we had a business win and it really was a nice little thing we did to get into the energy of celebration, which is what we’re going to be unpacking in today’s super celebratory episode and I love that it’s episode one, one, one.

[00:00:49] Right? 11. 11 Make A Wish, so it’s not, it’s not episode 11. 11, although I’m gonna get there, but it is 1. 1. 1. And I feel, I’m feeling as celebratory today and, and actually speaking of celebratory, I would love to read a super amazing listener review. And it comes from Canada from Kayla, three A’s, A A A. And she’s loving the energetic alignment business that this podcast offers.

[00:01:20] And she says, I admire the variety of episodes that Allison has on her channel that are a perfect balance of business and spirituality. Yes. Being able to plug into multiple dimensions is a great place to grow from. Thank you. You’re welcome, Kayla. And if you, dear listener, feel something from this episode, If you wish to celebrate the 111th episode with me, I would be so grateful for a rating and review and I will read your amazing words on the air.

[00:01:57] So getting back to the champagne, my husband and I had this little ritual and then I got to thinking. As I started to not be so inspired by alcohol, and I started to think about giving up alcohol because actually it was weighing my energy down and making me feel sick, I realized that I had no other way to to celebrate.

[00:02:21] I couldn’t think of anything else that felt celebratory for me than champagne. And that put me on a new journey of finding my celebrations both big and small, so I could really get into that energy of celebration. And I realized Just how important celebration is. So in today’s episode, I reveal why celebration is so important, the right way to celebrate your unmanifested dreams.

[00:02:54] and how to make celebration part of your every day. We’ll end on an invitation that will having you raising your overall energetic frequency so you can experience more joy each and every day through the power of celebration. So please stay with me until the end. Welcome to soul guide radio, a podcast for soul guided leaders, influencers, and entrepreneurs here to bring about change on a massive level.

[00:03:27] We’ll explore how you can activate your big soul mission, amplify your spiritual gifts and clear the energy blocks weighing you down so you can gain unstoppable momentum in life and business. I’m Allyson Scammell, your host and Soul Guide.

[00:03:51] Hello Soul Guide Circle. That is the name of this community, this global community of Soul Guided leaders, influencers, and entrepreneurs. In the Soul Guide Circle, we are pursuing our soul guided dreams while lifting up humanity. Find a link to join our closed Facebook group at or in the show notes.

[00:04:11] Today we’re talking celebrate good times. Come on. That great cool in the gang song. I mean, that, that song can always get your energy raising. So why the bleep is it so important? Well, in the process of manifestation, you’ve probably heard folks talk about celebrating your dreams. Before they’re manifested, and that will get you into the energy of your dreams already being manifested, which is an important pillar of manifestation.

[00:04:48] And I just recorded a super powerful episode about manifestation as a lifestyle. If you haven’t had a chance to check that episode out, we’ll leave a link in the show notes. But celebrating your Unmanifested dreams is important because it makes you feel as if. The dream is already in your experience.

[00:05:06] And when you are truly in that energy, that inner knowing is turned on that this dream is coming and I’m ready to receive it in my manifest reality. Whenever it’s ready to arrive. Um, that really enables you to align to the dream so that the dream may be manifested. So yes, from a manifestational standpoint, celebration is, is, and can be an important part of it, but it goes beyond that.

[00:05:36] We work so hard in a day. We do so much for our loved ones. We do so much in our work. Um, we don’t take a second to recognize all that we do and we have, and because a lot of this comes from social conditioning and it’s a, it’s a really hard thing to rewire. Our social conditioning tells us that success needs to be measured by money.

[00:06:07] And status. Okay. Those are the two things. How much money are you making? How sexy is your business title or your work title? Okay. So when we feel that that is true, even when we’re trying to rewire ourselves. That can be, we can still fall into that, those social patterns of those are the indicators for success.

[00:06:34] So we have to hold off celebrations until we perceive that we’re gaining more money or more status. The problem with that, though, is the way our mind is really worked. The way our mind is really wired is to, once we manifest one intention is to meet immediately go after the next thing. So let’s say in business, your goal is to reach, have your first 10, 000 a month.

[00:07:04] Once you receive that, okay, yeah, you might celebrate and you should celebrate. And let’s say you do celebrate your mind is going to immediately then, okay, now I want my first 15, It’s going to immediately go to the next thing. And sometimes it’s so automatic. And I would say very often, especially on the smaller things in life, it’s so automatic.

[00:07:29] We don’t even stop to recognize that we’ve actually fulfilled a dream intention. And when we don’t stop to recognize and celebrate. Then we aren’t gathering really true feeling juicy body of evidence that we are on track and on our way to manifesting, right? When we only celebrate the big goals and the big milestones, then there is big pauses, long periods of time.

[00:08:06] Of pauses between celebrations and we’ve missed all of those little celebrations and all those little dream intentions that were necessary and had to happen before we could get the big one, the big 10, 000 a month. Or the big dream, whatever that big dream is for you. That’s why we really, really want to make celebration part of our everyday so that we’re celebrating manifesting the smaller dream intentions, adding to the body of evidence that we are indeed on track.

[00:08:44] Turning on and up our inner knowing that our dreams are possible, and the more on and up our inner knowing that our dreams are possible, the faster they manifest into our experience. And there is, there absolutely is a right way and a less blind way to celebrate. And it starts with. What truly feels celebratory?

[00:09:10] What feels like celebration? And what are the emotional feeling states that you want to feel when you’re in the experience and the embodiment of celebration? Well, for me, I want to feel free, expansive, connected, abundant, love. Joy, exhilaration, I want to feel pride. Like I’m proud of myself. I’m a projector and our signature emotion is success, but it’s really soul aligned success, right?

[00:09:45] That soul expanding success. So I want to feel like, oh, I did something special. I accomplished something. My inspired action paid off for me and I’m proud of me and I feel success. And the signature for generators and manifesting generators is satisfaction. The signature for a manifester is peace. And the signature for a reflector is surprise.

[00:10:10] So once you identify your core valued feeling state as part of celebration, you want to ask what really truly makes me feel celebratory in that way. And I thought it was champagne and champagne was actually bringing me down and making me feel sick because alcohol is a depressant. So I realized it wasn’t champagne, but then when I took that away, I had nothing.

[00:10:35] left. It’s like, I was like, I don’t know what celebration feels like. And what I realized that I was doing is I was making it too complicated. I think when we think about celebration, we think a big, big party, spending a lot of money, big time investment. And actually celebrations can be big and small, but the importance is to treat it as a celebration.

[00:10:59] And you can do that by treating every day experiences. as a celebration. So for me, I always feel like taking my dog Astrid to the beach for her to get some sprints in. She’s a greyhound. She’s in her happy place when she’s sprinting on the beach. And I just love Walking on the beach and the sound of the waves and the ocean crashing and just breathing in the air and listening to the birds watching Astrid’s happiness.

[00:11:33] I love it when she gets so tired, she sort of conks out on the beach and she’s just like, Plops down in the sand with her tongue hanging out because she’s so tired from her sprints and she’s so happy. Like the biggest dog smile on her face. Now I could just do that and go through the motions and it would be fine and I would enjoy it, but I might be lost in thought and worried.

[00:11:59] What am I going to have for dinner tonight? And all those things. But when I say, right, I just, for example. I am recording this podcast episode for you. I submit my podcast episodes in bundles of four to my editor. They’re actually due today. So this is my fourth and final episode. So once I wrap this up, this bundle is wrapped and I feel like it’s a very high value, high vibrational bundle in service to you.

[00:12:29] And I want to celebrate that I completed. This milestone and by completing this milestone, I’m on track to my goal of soul guide radio becoming in the top 1%. of globally ranked podcasts. And so I want to celebrate today and I’m going to take, it’s a beautiful day outside. The sun is shining and I’m going to take Astra to the beach and I’m going to celebrate and to make it extra special.

[00:13:00] I think I’m going to bring, I’ve been really playing with Oracle. My Oracle cards have been kind of magical with me lately. And they’ve been like, I’ve been doing all sorts of crazy magical stuff with my Oracle cards lately. I think I’m going to bring my oracle card deck and my journal and a blanket and I might just plop down whilst after Astrid got her sprints in and she’s resting and I’ll plop down and I’ll pick some cards and I’ll journal and I’m just going to take a moment and I’m going to invite in my core valued feeling states of celebration.

[00:13:36] Now, this is an everyday thing that I do and I’m going to. Take something that’s rather ordinary and I am going to give it the energy of extraordinary and I’m really going to be proud of myself for completing this work and I’m really going to be tuned into the energetic frequency of my dream of getting into the top 1 percent and I’m going to celebrate today Yay!

[00:14:05] Being in the top 1 percent and I’m going to behave as if I’m already in the top 1%. Now this is the right way to use celebration to amplify your ability to manifest. The less aligned way is to be celebrating in ways that don’t feel good. So that could be alcohol for you. If it’s not feeling good, it could be food.

[00:14:36] I think sometimes we celebrate by going out to dinner and then, oh, I’m celebrating, so let me get dessert. And then by the time it’s done, you feel kind of yucky. The other way to celebrate is, okay, so I’m trying to manifest. Five new clients. And that’s going to bring in more income. So I want to behave as if those five new clients already here, and I already have that income.

[00:14:59] So to celebrate, I’m going to go out and buy myself a new handbag that’s very expensive. And then you do that and you get home. And the five new clients haven’t arrived yet. And then you start to get buyer’s remorse and it starts to make you feel bad. Whenever your celebration is making you feel anything other than your core valued feeling states of celebration, something wants to tweak.

[00:15:25] It’s good feedback that the celebration isn’t quite working as it should. I find the most powerful ways to celebrate. don’t require money and they don’t require food or drink, but I do that said travel is such an important part for me and my life that for my big milestones that I hit, I do. Give myself the reward of celebratory travel somewhere, taking a trip.

[00:16:07] Now it may be a bigger trip, but it can also be like a night away or a weekend away. That feels very celebratory to me. because travel is very important to me. And yes, that does cost me some money. Typically, when I go on a reward vacation in celebration of a milestone, I’ve actually already hit that milestone.

[00:16:33] So I’m a, I’m celebrating something that I’ve manifested. In my physical reality, but if I’m using celebration as a tool to get me into the energy of, I already have my soul guided dreams and attentions to really help me align. To those intentions, I typically try not to spend too much money or even time, and I shy away from food or alcohol, because that makes me feel good in the moment, and then it can, if I overindulge, make me feel bad in the next, you know, minute.

[00:17:11] And I’ve completely given up alcohol altogether. I haven’t had… Any sort of alcohol in like six months. And I feel amazing. I don’t miss it at all. And so champagne is not going to be on my list anymore at all. So that is actually a really good thing. So if you can incorporate celebration into your every day and find those things that maybe you are going to do anyway, or it’s a small time investment.

[00:17:45] There’s no money investment involved, but it feels celebratory that can really, really raise your energetic vibration, getting you into that high vibe, juiciness of celebration. And the message I get from Source all the time is that we. Do not celebrate enough. Life is meant to be a school. Yes. It’s meant to be a hospital for us healing our wounds.

[00:18:16] It’s meant to be a lot of things, but it’s also a playground. I think more than anything else, our life experience is really supposed to be a playground where we’re having, you know, imagine, you know, my, we just had a. Birthday party for my seven year old with all of her girlfriends. And it was so much fun.

[00:18:38] We went on a treasure hunt, and there were games, and it was just fun. And as adults, we are really meant to continue to have fun. It’s not just for children. Right? Fun and celebration is something that we are meant to experience throughout our lifetime. So it’s really the process of figuring out what are my core valued feeling states when I’m in a celebratory energy.

[00:19:12] And then what are the things in my every day that can put me in that energetic frequency? How can I celebrate more? In my average day and week celebrating the small accomplishments and the small soul guided intentions and for those bigger milestones that you actually do achieve that you bring into your manifest reality, what are some bigger celebrations?

[00:19:40] That would just bring the experience over the top for you that you can add to your experience. And I’m just looking at the clock now, it’s 11 11 and I want to make a wish and my wish is for you and I both to add more fun and more play into our experience and to add more celebration. Right? So that brings me so nicely to our invitation for this week.

[00:20:11] I invite you to make a list of your everyday ways to celebrate. Okay? And let’s categorize them as small celebrations. Medium celebrations and big celebrations. And when you go through your list, make sure as you visualize, experience them doing those things that they actually trigger feelings of joy for you.

[00:20:42] And that will indicate to you that that is truly on the right path. And this is a time, my dear ones, to get experimental. If you’re not sure what feels celebratory. Go up and try some new things like this podcast episode has gotten me excited to re look at my list and try some new things. One thing I’ve been wanting to try is those sound baths, healing baths.

[00:21:07] And there’s a sound bath place where it’s like they use the technology of sound for healing. And it’s, I’ve never done it before, but I’ve had some friends who’ve done it and I really want to try it. So I’m going to try that in the spirit of celebration. So let me celebrate an accomplishment or a soul guide and intention being achieved.

[00:21:30] So I’m going to book me a session at a sound bath. I think it costs about 60. It lasts about an hour. So not a big time or money investment. And then I’ll see, did that work as a celebration or not? And I know somewhere inside of you, each and every person listening to this podcast, because I have it too.

[00:21:49] You have either a teeny tiny voice or an actually louder voice that says. You don’t have the time to celebrate, you don’t deserve to celebrate, you haven’t achieved enough or accomplished enough to celebrate. And I want you with me right now to spend a couple seconds, if any of those thoughts or variation of those thoughts felt true to you, I want you to call up the.

[00:22:14] Painful or resisting emotions that those thoughts trigger. I want you to sit in them for about 30, 60 seconds with me right now. Feel those feels of you don’t deserve this. You don’t have time for this. You can’t afford this. You haven’t accomplished enough to celebrate. Feel those feels with me right now.

[00:22:35] Feeling the physical sensations. Feeling the tactile sensations and then start to deep breathe, big inhales, big exhales. Let’s release all of that illusion. Let’s release those non truths and go back into your heart. Tune into your heart energy. And I want to tell you. You deserve to celebrate, you have achieved and accomplished so much.

[00:23:10] You do so much. You are such a bright light. Your light deserves to be celebrated. You are a joyful, amazing being and let being of light. And let’s celebrate you today. My last invitation is to do something too. Day that in some way, shape or form feel celebratory. And all we’re doing is celebrating the bright light that is.

[00:23:42] All right, my dear ones, that’s all I have for you for this week. And as always, until next time, may your soul guide the way.
