Manifestation. You may have heard of this before. But you may be wondering to yourself. What is manifestation? Can I use manifestation in my own life? Does it really work?
If you find yourself thinking this is a bunch of “woo woo magic stuff” or if you’re interested in trying it out yourself, this is going to answer all your questions about the wonderful world of manifesting!
WHAT IS MANIFESTATION?
Manifesting is when you make something happen or bring something into your life by believing you can have it.
You’re attracting things into your life at all times, whether you’re conscious of it or not.
Doesn’t it seem like when things are going wrong in the day that everything just starts to go wrong?
Your phone died so you woke up late to work. Then your dog chewed on one of your nice heels so you have to wear sneakers. Only to find out that you need gas on the way to work and your boss yells at you.
This is partly because when something goes wrong, it puts us in a bad mood. Then, we begin attracting bad energy into our day causing more bad to follow us.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, when we’re happy, everything seems to be going right!
It’s the balance of the universe, you can’t have the good without the bad.
HOW MANIFESTING DOESN’T WORK
So, at this point, you’re probably thinking. “So to have good in my life all I need is to be happy?”
And, sadly, the answer is no. That is not how manifestation works. No matter what you do, you will have your bad days. Things will still go wrong.
You may want someone or something to happen so bad and no amount of manifesting will makes it come true.
That is NOT what manifesting is about.
Sometimes we can’t have things that we really want. But there is a good reason for it.
You likely won’t wake up with 1 million dollars tomorrow.
The man of your dreams that you’ve never met is not likely going to knock on your door tomorrow with flowers, chocolate, and a wedding ring.
You just have you put your trust into the universe, God, or whatever higher power you believe in that you are right where you are supposed to be. And that you will get where you’re supposed to go.
HOW TO BEGIN MANIFESTING WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE
If you’ve made it this far, you are clearly ready to start manifesting things into reality! So, let’s go over the steps that I use to manifest what I want!
1. KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT
The first step is knowing exactly what you want. You don’t want to be vague or skimp on any details. Make sure you know what you want.
Think about what you want in detail, write it down regularly. Make sure you are crystal clear on what you want. It’s like a genie asking you to make a wish, but the wish you made was vague and you end up with something else entirely.
You are asking the universe for what you want, and you want to make sure that it is as detailed as possible so you are clear on your goals, and the universe is clear on them too.

2. BELIEVE YOU CAN HAVE IT
This is the most important part of the manifestation process. Believing.
It can be so difficult when things are going wrong. The money isn’t coming into your business, the goals you set aren’t taking off as fast as you want. But you still need to believe.
The universe is going to test you to make sure you really deserve the house you are thinking about, or that car you really want. You have to prove that you’re driven enough to get it.
Even when things look tough, believe you can have it because it is already yours!
3. LIVE AS IF YOUR MANIFESTATIONS CAME TRUE
This is such an important point, I needed to make another one. Because it’s not enough to just believe that you can have the thing you want, you have to live as if you have it too!
What do I mean by that? Obviously, you can’t just drive off the lot with the car you want and live your dreams.
But what I do mean is, in your head act out what would happen if you achieved that dream.
How would you feel to get the keys to your dream house? What would it look like? Picture yourself walking around that new house.
Live your life as if your manifestations came true through your words as well. Say them to yourself, tell someone else, or write them down. Whatever you feel most comfortable doing to get the words out.
Confidently say, I’ve bought the new house I wanted. I made the 3 sales for this week. Today, I’m going to meet my goal (whatever that may be.) And make sure to still be specific.
I made x amount of money this month. The (dream job) I wanted to get called me back. Whatever your goals are.
4. DON’T GIVE UP
Patience is in fact a virtue and is also a must in these manifestation techniques. You need to be patient. These things still will not happen overnight.
And the more frustrated you get, the more negative energy you bring into your world, the longer it is going to take for your manifestations to come into fruition. Just be patient.
Manifesting your dream life is not an easy task at first. You may feel a bit silly, especially when nothing is coming true at first. But if you stick with it, I know you can master the art of manifestation and soon the entire process will come easier to you!
