Dreamer of the Month: Reuben Macapinlac


Aloha Dreamboard has assisted in manifesting a variety of dreams for its clients. From the ultimate vacation trip to the love of one’s life, people’s lives continue to change because of the magic and beauty behind manifestations. For Reuben Macapinlac, he rediscovered his passions and received an amazing job opportunity - all in less than a year.


After feeling super burnt out with his last job, Reuben reached out to Life Design Coach Tiare Thomas to lead him in an assessment of what his values entailed and help him in reflecting on which industry fits him best. As a former property manager, he realized that he wanted a career that provided more strategic planning into creating something and contribute to a bigger project. Before starting his journey with Aloha Dreamboard, Reuben received a recommendation from a friend at Hawaiian Electric Company. He applied for a job position but after not hearing back from them for two months, he assumed that someone else received the job offer.

But after almost two months of working with Tiare, Hawaiian Electric Company gave him a call for an interview that gave him the position he works now.

“This was a manifestation.”


While his past job provided him an amazing raise and promotion, Reuben’s heart was not in it. He worked so much to the point where he felt like something was missing. Working with Tiare, he appreciated the concept of dreamboarding and rediscovered his values after realizing that he never really knew what they were.

“I really put an importance on love and self love. I’m a very personable person and fostering relationships as everything I do and act upon should be out of the place of love.”

Along with that, he has received the opportunity to realign himself to the things that make him the happiest, including traveling. The wanderluster enjoys getting immersed in different cultures and putting himself out of his comfort zone. He has traveled all over the world but would have to choose between Barcelona, Spain or Phuket, Thailand as his favorite destinations.  


“It really is about knowing more about the world and about yourself, just seeing how people live and seeing their culture. It becomes a part of you going forward.”


With less than a year under his belt, Reuben has manifested the following:

  1. He made the most of the winter by traveling to Washington state and snowboarded at Whistler.

  2. After waiting to find a new job that excites him, Reuben received an amazing new job position at Hawaiian Electric Company.

  3. To expand his knowledge, Reuben gave himself the goal of reading 30 books in one year. Within three months, he has already read 15.

  4. Before starting his new job, Reuben could never find the time to go hiking. Now, he has the time to go every other week and hikes with his new coworkers.

  5. Maintaining his financial needs, he hit his income goal for the year.

Reuben hopes to manifest a new home next as he prepares to get married to the love of his life and start a new chapter. He also wants to focus on creating a new income goal, dream of new travel destinations including eating dinner at the Eiffel Tower and starting new hobbies. While Hawaiian Electric Company has become another blessing in his life, Reuben hopes to become a consultant later in life where where he can make his own hours but still be able to be involved in projects he wants to work on. He aspires to work remotely, anywhere in the world so he can continue exploring the world without worrying about his job or finances. His biggest drive revolves around wanting to learn and improve himself physically, mentally and spiritually.

“Working with Tiare has a been a breath of fresh air.”


Ever since he created his first dreamboard, Reuben shared that his life improved exponentially. He started focusing on things that would be healthy and beneficial. Everything just clicked after dreamboarding.

“It’s a life changer. It gave me more confidence in that it gave me more control. You can control your destiny and you can gain the trust to manifest it.”
