Therapist Vasavi Kumar shares how to manifest what you want in her new book Say It Out Loud: Using the Power of Your Voice to Listen to Your Deepest Thoughts and Courageously Pursue Your Dreams.
Practice using verbal prompts to become the person you aspire to be.
Vasavi Kumar, a well-known wellness influencer, recommends speaking out loud to achieve your goals. She has tried journaling for years to understand herself and reach her targets, but it didn’t work. Instead, she started talking to herself, using a compassionate tone as if she were her best friend. Vasavi used this method to navigate the obstacles of being an Indian immigrant’s daughter, dealing with bipolar disorder, substance abuse, and recovery. She realized that seeking outside advice was not enough to connect with her inner self, listen to her inner guidance and wisdom, and live accordingly with resilience and empathy. In her book, Say It Out Loud, Vasavi provides simple verbal cues to assist you in expressing your deepest desires, reframing negative self-talk, and healing from past traumas. It teaches you to pursue your ambitions with intention, focus, and compassion.
Combat negative thoughts effectively by speaking them out loud! This technique exposes their falsehood and enables you to evaluate the decision-making that led to your current situation objectively. Overcome past traumas and create a fulfilling future through this powerful method.
