If you are already familiar with my manifestation blog, you know for sure that I teach the women in my community a very practical hands-on approach to Law of Attraction. And taking action, or more precisely taking inspired action, is by far the most important step in the manifesting process.

But what exactly is inspired action? And why must you take inspired action if you want to manifest your dreams with the Law of Attraction? Taking inspired action is critical for your manifestation success. No doubt about it. Because the Law of Attraction is not a woo-woo formula that just magically transforms your dreams into reality.

The Law of Attraction is based on a goal setting and goal achieving process that is reinforced by reprogramming your subconscious mind. And without taking action, not much will happen.

So this action, your inspired action, is the key for you to manifest your desires and should be your top priority if you want to attract your dream life.

But in this post, you will not only learn what inspired action is and how to identify it but also how to activate it consciously.

A skill you really should master when you want to manifest your wildest dreams!

But let’s first answer the question, what is inspired action?

What is Inspired Action

An inspired action is when you do something because you feel the strong inner urge to do it, like having a gut feeling.

But it’s not just a small action step, it is really a quantum leap towards your dream. This type of action is definitely one of the most critical steps in the Law of Attraction manifestation process and usually the first big step forward.

It’s about doing something that brings you one big step closer to your goal, and doing it with strong emotion, Knowing that this is the RIGHT thing to do right now.

The great thing about such an action step is that it usually attracts the next steps and directs you further in the right direction.

Maybe you’ve already heard when you want to manifest something that you should pay attention to the signs of the universe? And then, you simply have a strong feeling or desire to do something.

Often you can’t even explain where the feeling comes from, why you got it, and what it should bring you. Then you either give in or ignore it.

You could also call it intuition. Or to have a creative idea or epiphany. And you are then taking action on it.

It is exactly this feeling that triggers inspired action if you decide to follow it. But that’s the step YOU have to take.

I know many Law of Attraction gurus out there tell you that the HOW is not your job when manifesting, it’s also what the law of attraction book The Secret teaches.

But I don’t quite agree.

Because the HOW, this next step is your job. You don’t have to know by 100% what to do and have planned it through in every single detail, but to be able to recognize the signs and to know when and how to react is not easy.

So the HOW becomes your job, fortunately, one you can learn and train. I read somewhere the other day that inspired action works without a plan. That it’s something, you don’t think about in advance.

Most of the time inspired action is something you do out of a positive feeling, you just want to do it, you have this inner urge, and it feels totally awesome.

The problem is, it’s not always like this and also depends a lot on your abundance blocks.

If you are one of those women who rather question things and are anxious, or maybe just find it hard to make decisions (welcome to the club), then it is quite possible that you don’t see the hints of the universe so easily.

Or when you do see them, you question your actions and maybe never move on.

Your inspired action is something that should happen intuitively, something where you should act quickly and, in my opinion, even something that you can and should consciously trigger.

So it is important that you learn more about the HOW and learn when you have to take inspired action.

Why is Inspired Action Key for Your Manifestation Success

I already mentioned it at the beginning of this post, the Law of Attraction is not magic; you can’t just shout “Abracadabra!” and your desire suddenly falls from the sky.

It also doesn’t help to visualize your goals the whole day, stick your goals on a vision board, or use any other Law of Attraction tools like hypnosisaffirmations, or even the 55×5 manifestation technique, if you then don’t take inspired action.

This is not the kind of action that really counts. These LoA tools are helpful ( more on this later in this post), but they are only a way to support the manifestation process.

I know many people misunderstand this, and believe me, I was one of them for a long time, but luckily at some point, I found out what the secret behind “The Secret” is.

Manifesting is a goal setting and goal achieving process that works on the Law of Attraction. It is based on the fact that you can program your subconscious mind to accept and believe a new reality.

A reality created by you. The subconscious cannot tell whether something is true or false and will accept this new reality as true and make every effort to bring you there.

Your subconsciousness loves it when things are in balance, and everything is in the right place.

And it’s actually very good at its job. But you need to support and guide it.

You have the belief that your dream will come true, then you start living as if these goals were already achieved (act as if), and this acting as if it will be a signal to your subconscious mind that this is the place where you belong.

And then the magic happens.

Ok, it’s not really magic, but sometimes magical things can happen when you activate the Law of Attraction.

But it is important to understand that in the end, only your actions count.

Your inspired action!

Your subconscious mind (or call it the universe) will give you signs, attract ideas, bring people and possibilities into your life, you will have inspirations, dreams, an epiphany, or anything that could inspire the right action.

But in the end, you have to act. Without your action, all these signs are useless.

What is the Difference Between Inspired Action and Action

Simply put, the difference between inspired action and regular action is that inspired action:

  • Happens out of a gut feeling, so to speak an inner urge that makes you do something (this is usually positive, but doesn’t have to be)


  • A step that brings you closer to your goal and often leads to the next important steps.


Many people have the problem that they don’t think enough about their actions. Often we just do “something,” because then we are busy. Or at least we look busy.

That’s why so many people in the evenings, even after a hard day at work, often feel that they haven’t really achieved anything. And the frustration is big.

In today’s society, we are driven to live in a kind of “hustle mode.” Being busy is the new chic. If you can’t be reached 24/7, you are a loser or just lazy.

We have to:

  • Work overtime.
  • Go to the gym.
  • Have hobbies.
  • Meet up with friends.
  • Run the household.
  • Bake brownies for the kids’ school event.
  • Commit ourselves to a charity.
  • Travel to the most beautiful countries.
  • Start a DYI blog.
  • Eat low carb.
  • Eat no carbs.
  • Eat high carbs.
  • Try out Fasting.
  • Post once a day to Instagram.
  • Read a new book every week.
  • Buy a house.
  • Binge-watch all Netflix series.
  • Learn a new skill.
  • Try out a gluten-free diet.
  • Setting ourselves goals for a 5-years plan.
  • A ten-year plan.
  • A 20-years plan…


And yes, someday it’s time for us to go, and we ask ourselves what we’ve done with our lives.

We do so much, day after day, but most of our actions are meaningless.

We think too little before we act and act not out of true inspiration.

  • We act because we should.
  • We act because others do it.
  • We act because we feel guilty.


And sometimes we even act because we really believe that something is right for us.

But most often, our actions steps are not inspired actions.

But these inspired actions are precisely the action steps that lead us to our goals and dreams. The big ones, not the “I should bake some brownies for Jennifer’s school event” – goals.

Inspired action often comes with an incredible feeling of joy and positivity; you just somehow know that’s the right thing to do.

But inspired action can also make you feel scared; it can force you to leave your comfort zone, which is never an easy step.

And what is also possible, although not many LoA teachers out there, will talk about this secret; you can consciously attract and activate inspired action.

And I will show you how.

Consciously Attract Inspired Actions

But before we look at how you can consciously activate and use inspired action, I would like to explain how you will know when to do something and, more importantly, what.

Many Law of Attraction coaches and authors believe that the HOW is not your job when it comes to manifestation.

Also, the book or the movie “The Secret” suggests that we don’t have to know HOW we attract our dream. Manifesting is presented in such a way that one simply has to believe and wait for these signs of the universe.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been the “wait and drink tea person,” nothing against tea, but I’m very impatient.

I think this misinformation about the HOW in the Law of Attraction was like a completely new abundance block for me.

I waited impatiently for the signs, trusting that the universe would deliver, but always looking out for the signs.

On the other hand, I was always insecure. Uncertain about whether that this was now:

  • The right signs.
  • The right inspired action.

I was asking myself, was my dream really in the making, or was I supposed to do something else?

This made me realize that the HOW is our job when we want to attract our dream life. You will have the most success if you know how to read the “signs of the universe” and then consciously take the right step.

And knowing that this was the right action to take, give you a feeling of confidence.

This is not so easy, but there are some tools that can help you:

  • Meditation can help you to perceive your inner being on a deeper level and to act more intuitively.

  • The more you focus on your goal, the more you will understand when you receive these signs. Learn more here: How to manifest your biggest goal.

  • My signature manifestation method, which I also teach in my advanced manifesting formulastarts right there and goes one step further than any other manifesting method I have ever known. 

The first step to learning more about it would be my book, “Become the CEO of Your Dream Life.”


Inspired Action is Nothing You Have to Wait for

In my signature manifesting process, I will show you exactly how to activate this first important step. Because in the end, all you need is a clear plan.

If you know exactly where you want to go, you will also know which your next step must be. You will want to take this next step automatically, and you will do so completely without any doubts.

With the CEO of Your Dream Life Method, I’ll show you how to create this plan and how to have it reviewed and approved by your own small management team. This method, inspired by Walt Disney, has helped me to attract my greatest dreams.

But not only my dreams!

Over the years, I have helped countless women to manifest their dream life and business with my coaching sessions, my blog, and with my books.

And I hope you are next?

And hey, maybe this is one of those signs from the universe, or from your subconscious, that shows you right now what your inspired action should be:
