7 Steps to Manifesting a Miracle with Christi Corradi
Welcome to Expand your Fempire with Caterina Rando, the podcast for women in business on a mission. Sharing ideas to support you to grow and thrive. Now here’s your host, Caterina Rando.
[00:00:00] Caterina Rando: Welcome back to another episode of the Expand Your Fempire Podcast. I’m your host, Caterina Rando, and I am blissing to be with you today because we have a very special guest, a very smart guest, a very insightful guest who I know you are gonna be wanting to take notes as you listen to and that is Christi Corradi. Christi, welcome, welcome, welcome to our podcast.
[00:00:58] Christi Corradi: Thank you so much.
[00:01:00] Caterina Rando: Christi is a transformational life mastery consultant. She is my friend. She is a part of our Thriving Women in Business Community for many years. I have had the privilege of being coached by Christi, and what we are gonna talk about today is how to create miracles in your life every day. Christi, I wanna get there, but before we get there, I wanna hear a little bit about your entrepreneurial journey.
[00:01:34] Christi Corradi: Well, I, I know we just have a few minutes to share this, but I’m gonna start all the way back at the beginning. I grew up with a grandmother who was very wise and knowledgeable into a type of thinking. Came to learn later, that was very unusual. I thought everybody thought this way, but I found out when I went through middle school that it wasn’t, and so I kind of put it on the back burner. And then as I became an adult, I began to understand that there are universal principles in the universe that run as our operators.
[00:02:07] Now, I had a lot of struggling as I came through this learning process, but all of those struggles helped me realize. I really understood the universal principles and how to use them, that I could create an amazing life. I could create miracles.
[00:02:28] Caterina Rando: Bing, bing, bing. Well, that’s what we’re gonna talk about today.
[00:02:31] So why don’t we dive in, Christi, I know you have a five-step process, but before we get to it, cuz we wanna hear it, please tell us where this all came from. And, and before we do that, Christi, let’s define miracle. Okay. Cause you know, I’m raised Catholic, so I think of, you know, three miracles to be a Saint
[00:02:53] So tell, tell us what you mean by miracles.
[00:02:57] Christi Corradi: Okay. So actually the definition in the dish dictionary of miracles is that it’s, something comes about that can’t be explained by, by what we call reality or science. But what we know now is that science and spirituality are blending. We know that through quantum physics and, and a lot of the developments now, science is proving what people have known through spirituality. So what it really is, is the understanding of the use of the invisible principles to create things that seem out of the ordinary.
[00:03:40] Caterina Rando: And from a business context, that’s like getting five clients to land on your lap or getting a new revenue goal or getting that opportunity that you’re excited to get, but a lot of people want it, and if it comes to you, it’s practically a miracle. You mean like that?
[00:03:58] Christi Corradi: Yeah. So I was doing my retreat of Manifesting Miracle Money, and one of the people said that by the end of this call they wanted to end the end of the retreat, which is a four-hour retreat on Zoom, and by the time they, they said they wanted to have, three or five new appointments by the end of the call. And it wasn’t more than 20 minutes into the call, they go, “wow, I have two already.” And by the end of the call, they had met their goal.
[00:04:29] Now, why does that happen? It happens because we align our thinking with the truth that our universe is all abundant. There is abundance everywhere. And what gets in the way of that is just our beliefs about how the world works, the status quo thinking, and what we were programmed what to think.
[00:04:56] You gotta work hard. Did you know that? You gotta work hard, right. That’s what we’re programmed. We gotta work hard. Exactly. Exactly.
[00:05:06] Caterina Rando: You know, I do believe that you do this part, but you also do have to take action. You know, action is required, but it doesn’t have to be hard. It can be super fun.
[00:05:19] Christi Corradi: If you wanna think about actions to take instead of working on the how. How do I get there? You think – what is a step that I can take in the direction of. And actually what that does… and yes, we must actually take action. That’s the second step.
[00:05:38] First, we must vision and know the truth that that desire or that vision is ours to manifest. And the second is yes, absolutely to take steps in that direction. Because what that does is it notifies the universal law that you are that kind of person moving in that direction.
[00:05:59] So if you go out and you say, “oh, I’m gonna work hard.” The universe goes, “great, I’m gonna make it so you have to work hard.” If you go, “I wanna be joyful and blissful as I, I experience my becoming of my vision, my dream,” then that’s what the universe sends you.
[00:06:19] So the action should be in alignment with that.
[00:06:22] Caterina Rando: Okay. I love it, Christi. So let’s back up to step one. Let’s talk a little bit about that. Let’s go through these steps because I wanna manifest more miracles in my life and I and my business, and I know our listeners do too. Give it to us.
[00:06:40] Christi Corradi: Step one of manifesting miracles is creating a vision.
[00:06:45] Now, we’ve all done that and we’ve created our vision boards, but we must be in the first law of the universe, which is the vibrational frequency of that that we want. We cannot get to our dream. We must come from our dream, and so we create a vision. Now, a lot of people say, “well, that’s thinking about the future.” It is not. Your dream already exists once you have a desire for it.
[00:07:11] There’s a lot of other options too, of what manifests. It depends on what actions you take in that direction. And so a vision of where I wanna go is very important to hold it as the vibration, as if it already has happened, and I call it putting on the suit, you know, acting as if, right?
[00:07:33] Caterina Rando: Let me ask a question.
[00:07:34] Christi, you said and I love that putting on the suit, you’re putting on the suit. Your vision. You said though about vibrational frequency. Mm-hmm. Now, this is where I get a little bit, maybe confused or concerned cuz I don’t know if the suit I’m putting on of my vision is the vibrational frequency of that thing that I want.
[00:08:00] How do I make sure my vibration is matching my vision?
[00:08:04] Christi Corradi: Okay. What do you think you want to feel? Let’s go to the feeling in your success. I know you, Miss Caterina. You want joy and bliss. Okay. That is a vibrational frequency, so I want joy and bliss. Now we use pictures just to help us create that in our mind, and that’s why at the end of all of the visions, you should say this or something even better. But it’s just to get your mind to think in pictures of a vibrational frequency.
[00:08:36] That doesn’t mean it’s written in cement or concrete.. It means that you are operating at that frequency and want it. So let’s take, for example, you have a vision of what’s your next program you’re creating?
[00:08:50] Caterina Rando: Well, I wanna do a conference on a cruise. I wanna have a hundred women get on a cruise ship and have a Thriving Women in Business Conference. That’s one of my dreams. I’m not sure when it’s gonna happen.
[00:09:01] Christi Corradi: Okay. So you don’t need to know when it’s gonna happen and you don’t need to know how. What does it feel like? I can see, cuz we’re looking at each other here. I can see the expression on your face. Yeah. How does it make you feel?
[00:09:13] Caterina Rando: Bliss as I see a hundred women together. Laughing and having fun… makes me very happy.
[00:09:21] Christi Corradi: And so, you know, I hate cruises, right? So I’m like, wait a minute. What if like all of a sudden you were offered an opportunity to do a hundred-plus conference in Greece? I mean, would you say, “uh uh Oh, that’s not on a ship?”
[00:09:37] Caterina Rando: No, I would not say that, but I would prefer Italy.
[00:09:40] Christi Corradi: Okay. Italy, let’s say Italy. Let’s say Italy. You and I both love Italy, right? Yes. Yes. Okay. So would you that be the same vibrational frequency as, or even higher than being on a cruise ship?
[00:09:54] Caterina Rando: Yes, I would be. I mean, it could be the same.
[00:09:56] Christi Corradi: Exactly. So that’s the point is that it it, you hold the vibrational frequency and part of the reason you do cruises is cuz you’ve been doing those, you know how to do those and things like that.
[00:10:07] So you hold that frequency and you say “this or something even better.” And then you let things happen to you. Now when you are in that flow of things, it’s called being the low-pressure front and the wind doesn’t blow – the wind pulls into a low-pressure front. And the only thing that gets in the way of that wind blowing into that low-pressure front or the things happening to make those things happen is when we stand in the way and block the wind from getting to that low-pressure front.
[00:10:36] So as long as you hold this or something greater, it’s the image. We are human, we think in pictures. It’s given you the picture to think of it.
[00:10:46] Your vision is step one. And it’s the most important step, and it’s actually probably the only step that we’re gonna get to, but I have five questions today to see if your dream is worthy of you.
[00:10:59] Now, notice I didn’t say, are you worthy of the dream? Right? Is your dream worthy of you? So here’s five questions.
[00:11:07] Number one is, does it give me life? So feel that.
[00:11:11] Caterina Rando: So I would say, does it give me vitality? Yes.
[00:11:15] Christi Corradi: Yes. And does it align with your core values?
[00:11:19] Caterina Rando: Yes.
[00:11:20] Christi Corradi: Okay. Now one of the things, a lot of people don’t know what their core values are, so that’s one of the things you have to handle in step two. Well, what are my core values?
[00:11:30] There was this woman that wanted to be a hairdresser, and she wanted to find a way to travel the world and be a hairdresser. So she decided to you know, apply to be on a cruise ship. And then she found out that to work that you’ve gotta be four or five months on a cruise ship.
[00:11:47] Right? Right. Or she had a young daughter and she was like, that doesn’t align with my core values because I wanna be home with my child.
[00:11:54] And so then she said, so what is another high vibrational thought? I wanna be a teacher. Kindergarten teacher, by the time her child was in kindergarten, she was a teacher and got to teach her own child in class. So she had to look at her core values.
[00:12:09] Caterina Rando: So you said a lot of people don’t know their core values. I wanna say that, this is really important for people to put attention on figuring out their values because your values help with your decision making and I wanna encourage everyone to have integrity.
[00:12:25] Well, these are my values, but I encourage everyone to look at embracing integrity, generosity, service, community, and of course fun or bliss or positivity as part of your core values. Those are, I’ve got more, but those are a few recommendations because your values guide us in our whole business and life.
[00:12:50] Christi Corradi: And you can reword that. Mine are kindness, honesty, which goes along with integrity and family, right? And so when I make a decision about, you know, doing one of my travel programs or, or taking time out to do X, Y, z, I say, “how does it affect my family?” And just like the woman with the child. And my book Beyond the Box, chapter five, I think it is actually has a process for you to do around discovering your values, right?
[00:13:20] Because it is core to this work.
[00:13:24] Caterina Rando: Let me also say love is a very important value. Yes. And I will also say Christi has a great book. I encourage you to get it. This part on values is fabulous. I also wanna mention we have a podcast, one of our episodes on values as well. Okay, Christi, keep going.
[00:13:42] Christi Corradi: Okay, so step number three is, does it cause you to grow? Now, if you’ve done it before, you’re not growing. Or you’re growing and refining it or developing it.
[00:13:55] But if you’re just doing the same thing over and over again, you are… we live in an expanding universe. And it is our nature and part of the universal law to expand in creativity and freedom and life and fun all the time. And so you wanna ask yourself, does this vision cause me to grow?
[00:14:15] Number four is, does it require help from a higher power? Now, it doesn’t matter if you believein any particular higher power, but it is still that kind of same thing as causing you to grow. Am I relying on the universal principles? Am I relying on my relationship with God or Goddess or Buddha or whatever? Because we are not just in a physical universe, we are also spiritual beings, you know, living in the physical world.
[00:14:50] And number five is, does it have good in it for others?
[00:14:56] Caterina Rando: Okay. Yeah.
[00:14:57] Christi Corradi: Always an important question to ask because so desire is something people go, “well, I really wanna be in a relationship,” and how does that help other people? Well, it helps other people by the vibrational frequency you exude when you are in relationship.
[00:15:16] Caterina Rando: And also you uplift your partner.
[00:15:18] Christi Corradi: And you uplift your partners, not just “Oh, he uplifts me.” Right? Yes.
[00:15:24] So this is only step one of the seven steps of creating a miracle and I am offering courses on, um, that new experience.
[00:15:37] Caterina Rando: Christie, first of all, I have done work with you. I, I’m excited. I wanna come take this course. I want others to know that you are a masterful teacher. I’m sure they’re getting that experience from you right now. But my friend, I don’t like to leave the peeps hanging, so we do have to at least tell them what the steps are.
[00:15:58] Christi Corradi: What’s the seven steps of creating a miracle are? Okay, so here’s a miracle story that just causes me to bliss and it has some of the principles in it of what I discovered were important to the, the five steps.
[00:16:15] So my miracle story is that I live on a lot in a house, a beautiful house, a place that has a lot of acreage in the back, well, half an acre, but it’s enough to build a granny unit on it, you know, which is now called an ADU. Like an in-law unit.
[00:16:33] So, um, we’ve thought about it many times, you know, and it’d be a great source of additional income and things like that, but we just never had the passion to move forward with it.
[00:16:44] And then my son decided that he was getting married and he and his wife were living here at our house. It was the perfect opportunity to build the unit. And so we set out to do that and my husband kept saying, “where are we gonna get the money? Where are we gonna get the money?” And this is one of the principles, which is number two.
[00:17:05] So first one is vision. Number two is sparkle. And sparkle is feeling it. It’s kind of that idea of putting on the suit and it’s acting as if, and now that doesn’t mean you go out and spend the money, right? But I did get the architecture plans drawn and I found the contractor and my husband kept saying, “where are we gonna get the money? Where are we gonna get the money?”
[00:17:28] Well, I left no stone unturned. I looked at financing our house. I actually got a short-term loan that would cover doing this. But I didn’t wanna go into debt to do this. Right? So, I kept just looking everywhere for all opportunity.
[00:17:43] Well, it wasn’t even where I was looking. My husband got a call from his brother saying, have you ever felt like you won the lotto? And some money came to us out of the blue. The names of his parents were not even connected to it. We still don’t know for sure if that’s where it came from. They died five years ago and seven years ago, right?
[00:18:06] And so, but all of a sudden enough money that was almost two times as much as we needed to build the unit, got deposited into our bank account. That ADU unit was built on this miracle money.
[00:18:22] I like that. Miracle. Yes. Miracle money. I like miracle money. Bing, bing, bing. Yeah. Bing. Binging. It’s a beautiful story.
[00:18:28] Caterina Rando: Okay, Christi so we know the first one. Give us the other steps.
[00:18:33] Christi Corradi: Number Number two is sparkle. Number three is unlocking what’s stopping you, where are you stuck? And all of our experience of us here is actually a reflection of all of our belief systems, and most of them are hidden in our subconscious.
[00:18:52] Caterina Rando: And so we have to uncover them to get them out of the way so that we can create miracles.
[00:18:57] Christi Corradi: Yes. We need to bring them to the surface to reveal them so we can heal them.
[00:19:02] And the good news is that once you get the experience of doing this, and this is why I take all of this work deeper in these seven steps, you will not have to always go back and dig up the past. You start getting the feeling tone of “Uhhuh, something’s up. You know what, I’m gonna replace it with a new thought.” And I have tools for helping you do that.
[00:19:25] Caterina Rando: Love it. Okay, good. Any more steps?
[00:19:28] Christi Corradi: Yes. Number four is you are an expression of the divine. You are the divine in expression, and it’s a great tool to ask yourself, “Huh? Would the divine really want me to be stuck? Would the Divine really want me to be struggling if I am creating its experience into the world?” and you know, of course, the answer is no.
[00:19:50] “Would the divine love me to be abundant and free and creative?” Yes, absolutely.
[00:19:58] And then number five is truth. And this aligns with speaking your truth. And you don’t want to let anything cross the threshold of your thoughts or your lips that you don’t want to create. And that’s a hard practice. Believe me, I know practitioners who’ve been in this work forever, and I get to coach them in in calibrating high-vibration thoughts for them to be thinking and speaking.
[00:20:26] And then number seven is serve what is. It’s kind of a difficult one to, to explain in a short time. It’s about serving the truth and it is about taking the action steps that, that are yours to take in order to create this out into the world.
[00:20:46] And the very last one is just do it. Now, I hope I have a short little 30 seconds to tell this story. This was before I even came into this work that I knew. I knew it worked. I didn’t know what it was, but I met this young girl. She was just graduating from high school and she says, “oh, I would just love to go to Hawaii.”
[00:21:07] And I said, “then go.” And she says, “oh, my mother worked so hard. She’s a single mother, haven’t seen my father in five years, and it’s just really not possible.” And I said, well, it was at the time, back in the day when you could make a plane reservation, they would hold it for three days, right? So I said, “well just act as if, you know, just do it.”
[00:21:28] So she booked her flight, she booked her hotel, she started telling her girlfriends about it, and they all started getting on board too. And out of the blue, her father, who had not been in touch with her in five years, called and said, “Hey honey, congratulations! What would you like for your graduation?” Now if she wouldn’t have been doing this work, she would’ve just said a prom dress, you know, or prom shoes or something. But she had it all in place. She says, “I wanna go to Hawaii,” and guess what? She and her friends did.
[00:22:02] Caterina Rando: That’s beautiful. I love that. Just do it. Okay. Christi, give us a quick recap of the steps.
[00:22:08] Christi Corradi: Okay. It’s
[00:22:09] the vision,
[00:22:11] the sparkle,
[00:22:12] the getting unstuck,
[00:22:14] knowing you are divine in expression,
[00:22:18] speak and act only truth,
[00:22:20] and serve what is,
[00:22:22] and do it.
