Do you find it hard to manifest what you want out of life? When you’re manifesting, do you feel like you’re not doing it right? Maybe it’s just that you are unsure of what manifesting actually means. Well, what if I told you, you’ve been manifesting for years and didn’t even know it! What do you do every year before blowing out the candles on your birthday cake? Close your eyes and make a wish, right? That right there is the foundation for making your thoughts your reality. There’s various ways to define manifesting but the simplest way to break it down is using your thoughts/energy to create your reality.
Manifesting is cultivating the experience of what it is that you want to feel, then living, and believing in that experience so that you can allow it to come into fruition. Similar to the Law of Attraction, manifesting is the process of vibrating at a high frequency to become a vibrational match with the Universe and co-creating your own world. Manifesting isn’t about having complete control or satisfying all our short-term desires, it’s about receiving what is of the highest good for all and trusting that your higher power has a better plan than yours.
The first step in manifesting is taking inventory of your thoughts and feelings. Are you feeling negative or having negative thoughts? Remove all feelings of doubt and uneasiness and trust that all things are working for your good. Whatever you think about, you are manifesting into your life. If you constantly think about what you don’t want to have happen, that is exactly what you will manifest. Essentially, manifesting is bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief, in other words, if you think it, it will come. Angelina Lombardo, the author of A Spiritual Entrepreneur says, “manifesting is making everything you want to feel and experience a reality... via your thoughts, actions, beliefs, and emotions." This is why it’s important to clear your mind and have a positive mind while giving birth to an intention.
Now that you’ve cleared all negative thoughts and feelings of doubt, think about what you truly want. It is important to be clear and specific with what you are trying to manifest. For example, if you are trying to manifest a new career, be clear about how you want the job to make you feel, your ideal hours, and your ideal pay. Really connect with the intention to have it, and believe that you will receive what you ask for. Truly visualize your intention as if it’s already done. If you see it and feel it, you will achieve it. Ask the universe for exactly what you want and keep an eye out for signs of achievement or synchronicities. While you may not get everything you envision in the order and time-frame you want, you should receive and acknowledge what you do get as gratitude is key. Be grateful for the opportunities you have and send gratitude forward into the future for that which you are about to receive.
