Manifestation, similar to the Law of Attraction, is consciously choosing what you want to attract into your life. Having the ability to attract a person, feeling, or experience into your life sounds absurd, but with a positive mindset and good intentions, anything is possible. Getting anything you want through the power of your (sub)conscious mind sounds amazing. Who wouldn’t want that, right? Well, for many beginners, it’s easy to lose faith early in the process of letting go, trusting what the universe has planned, and manifesting a dream life. But, like everything in life, manifestation takes practice and care.
Manifestation sounds simple, and that’s because it is. All it takes is patience, positivity, and trust. It only becomes difficult when someone loses faith in their belief and allows their doubts to conquer their mind. This happens when an attempt to manifest an unrealistic goal is met with the inevitable feeling of disappointment and hopelessness. That’s why it’s important to remember how, when, and what you can manifest. Reminder: manifest positive things in a peaceful place. Everyone manifests differently. However, we all share the same drive to manifest our greatest desires into our lives. Want to start seeing your dream life unfold? Here’s how to start.
Showing gratitude is a crucial step in the manifestation process. Thanking the universe now for the things you are manifesting can make them come faster and better than you could’ve expected, and it’s an easy thing to do. Waking up in the morning and writing down a few things you’re thankful for only takes a few minutes out of your day. Then, before going to bed at night, write 5 manifestations you are thankful for, but in the present tense. For example, “I am so happy that I got the job I wanted”.
Visualize Your Goals
Visualizing everything you want, physically and emotionally, is super important. For some, this can be a hard thing to do. “I can’t see anything”, “Why is this so hard?”, “I can’t imagine doing that”, aren’t valid reasons to give up on visualizing your dream life. Meaning, when envisioning a manifestation, it’s important to have an open mind and a little bit of creativity. Creating a vision board is an easy way to get your creative wheels turning. Include positive images, quotes, and symbols related to your manifestations and greatest desires. Visualizing what you want your life to look and feel like will turn your dreams into reality.
Say It Like It Already Happened
Writing down manifestations is more powerful than you can imagine. When writing down manifestations, do so as if they have already happened. Has anyone ever told you, “speak it into existence”? It’s an everyday reference to the way manifestations are written and spoken into reality. Instead of, “I want to get into my dream college”, try writing “I am so happy for getting into my dream college”. Do so by, for example, repeating it to yourself in the mirror or writing it on a piece of paper. The power of your word is a strong one. You’ll be surprised.
