Toe Dipping — Hidden Key to Manifesting Success

Let me ask you an important question…

Are you a toe dipper?

Before you answer, let me explain what I’m talking about…

There are 3 ways to enjoy the ocean water.

1. You can walk to the water’s edge and get your toes wet as the tide comes in or what I call ‘Toe Dip’…


2. You can Slowly walk into the water, stopping at different levels to let your body get used to the chilly temperature before moving forward…


3. You can simply jump in.

Here’s something to think about…

Picture a child at the beach running back and forth as the tide comes in and out – they run gleefully toward the water and when the cold touches their toes they come screaming and run away as the tide chases them back up the beach.

It’s such a fun thing to watch but it’s also a great lesson.

If you ONLY ‘toe dip’ you never allow yourself to get used to the water’s temperature — which means, you never really get in the water.

BUT — if you slowly move forward into the water, 1 level at a time, and at each level allow yourself to get used to the temperature, before you know it, you are swimming and loving the water!

This is exactly the same in life – if you retreat at the first inkling of change, fear, or even at the first shift in your senses, then you are losing out on any great change or movement in your life. But, if you move forward one level at a time — push your comfort zone and then let your belief sets expand to the new level you are living in, then, before you know it, you have completely transformed your life!

So I ask you again – are you a toe dipper?

If you answered ‘yes’ or even if you answered ‘sometimes’ the next time you feel that unfamiliar feeling, I want you to give yourself a chance, let yourself get used to each new level and keep moving forward — and every once in a while, do something really fun and just jump right in!

You’ll be amazed at what this change will bring you!

Leave me a comment — I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

    I want to jump in but the same old question as always is running trough my mind: jump into what?
    I’ve tried so many things for over 30 years now, read 100’s of selfhelpbooks, courses,affirmations, subliminal videomessages etc. but everything i’ve tried failed.

    Kristen, you are amazing! You have perspective and intelligence that I do not often see on sites like yours. I read through this brief post and saw how it applied to the way I approached things, and I now can approach changing my habits and giving myself that chance! After all, I might have to stop asking “What if it doesn’t work?” and start asking “What if it DOES work?” Thanks and much appreciation!

    Nice article Kristen. I make decisions quickly jumping in because I know that is the best way I will understand what is right for me. I have seen how others over analyze decisions and never move forward.

    I used to be confused that our thoughts are so creative that action was not required, and now I know that the action is what tells the Universe we are serious and moves us forward.

    I had a friend who was not selling her home, and so she declared to the Universe that she was moving, and added, “Watch me I am packing because I am ready for the buyer of my home to appear.” Sure enough her action attracted a buyer and she moved to her new home shortly after!

    I use to never take a risk. Things might get uncomfortable by I work through it. Judi

    I like the analagy – it will give people a differant slant on the comfort zone. When I talk about comfort zones to people I use the piece of elastic that loses its elasticity as it is stretched, same thing – differant perspective

  8. Marylou Drygas says:

    I am someone who walks in a bit at a time till the water feels wonderful. As of late I seem to get almost wet and a big wave pushes me back out of the water. Figuratively speaking of course.

  9. Patricia says:

    Great post! I won’t pretend I know much more about the law of attraction than when I started 2 years ago. I tend to think I’m making progress and end up taking 3 steps back. So far, I haven’t been able to manifest anything, but I keep trying. Thanks for the encouraging words!

    Thats mind challenging. A boost to my faith.Thanks

  11. Geoffrey Theuri says:

    What a truth.

  12. Reginald says:

    Like John at the top of this page I have tried everything in this subject and I haven’t seen any results at all. Is there something that I am missing or does this system work for others and not for others like us?

  13. Nuno says:

    Great analogy. I’m just the second type and when i get used to i just have fun there for a lot of time! I love to play in the waves, and what bothers me in my aims is that generally they take too much time to see few results, it’s like a flat ocean. I have to adjust to my favourite wave pattern…

  14. Meredith says:

    I’m most definitely a toe-dipper, both literally and in the rest of my life. Thanks for making me aware of my patterns!

    This is an awesome post. I believe that to grow in life we must take risks. If we make the wrong decision as will happens sometimes we gain understanding on how to do it better next time.

  17. Lissa says:

    I find that it takes way more energy, and stress by toe dipping, then it does to just get it over with and get wet. It also takes up too much time where I could surly get much more accomplished. I was told once, “to look at the outcome and not worry about the process”.

  18. Mac says:

    You are incredible! I can’t remember how many times I’ve toe dipped. How it cost me a lot of successes! I’ve tried what you said and my comfort zone is larger than before. Thanks its more than helpful

    I,like John above, have been on this quest for 40 years and have tried EVERY technique on the market as he has. I have been meditating 36 years twice daily, have used self hypnosis and subliminal suggestion tapes, been to years of therapy, take pharmaceuticals, etc. None of it has helped me find my Purpose or helped me gain satisfaction from life. I believe it is the Unconscious mind’s resistance hence the subliminal tapes and Mind Movies neither of which changed tne thoughts. It is only after decades of trying that I’m just BEGINNING to make progress in changing my unconscious script. Until that succeeds, NO technique will work.

  20. I’ve tried a lot of things, but nothing really keeps my attention. Is there a career in starting projects and letting others finish? I’m not sure if it’s me or the situation – but thank you for making me think about it. 🙂

  21. Gerardo says:

    That’s very true , and something we forget most of the time , of the benefit we should be getting from the lesson from each full experience in the one thing in our life that we are being too careful, trying to stay dry, safe and not take the full risk , ’cause we might just end up enjoy the new experience, soo much that it might be a bit scary at first.

    Always a pleasure to read and hear about Miracles that someone received from treasures..Mine are on my way now that I have found the treasure..lokked for something and kept on asking what is it and finally received my promise..I am excited and I love the newsletter..THANKS so much inspiration we should all have in in ourselfs we just have to be ready to receive and know its ours..Love Diana

  23. I love reading your tips. They have great deeper meaning to them. I definitely agree with what you say. It is the fear of uncertainty that most people including myself constantly deal with. I never really understood this before, but strong incentive is very important to walk slowly into the water. Otherwise at some point, when fear takes over, people can run the other way after toe dipping. I say this from personal experience of course. Your tips have indeed helped me. :p

    Can’t believe I missed this one, but reading it this morning was the perfect time for it. This week-end, I felt as if I had awakened from a big trance. I was happy and creative ideas flowed because I was not worried about money (or the lack thereof). As a result, two miracles happened involving my business, and I took those as evidence that my improved state of mind was allowing these miracles to occur.

    Yesterday was Monday, and the whole panoply of problems, delays, apparent lack of money, the “woulda, shoulda, couldas” fell on me, and my state of mind plummeted again. It seems I have acclimated myself to not exactly failure but seemingly perpetual fear, doubt, worry and lack. This post reminds me that I can just as easily acclimate myself to confidence and abundance. And in this case, I would just as soon jump right in.

    • Kristen says:

      Hello there!

      That’s perfect Rosemary! And start using the times that you have a great mindset and see miracles happen as PROOF! Remember those times whenever you get into the opposite mindset and it will help you…

      Life mastery is yours!
