How to Manifest your Desires or What is Manifestation?
I am sure you asked either of these questions and landed here!
Well, to put it simply, your reality at this very moment is a manifestation of your own doing or the power of your own thoughts and feelings.
And in reality, the manifestation process is much easier than you think.
There might be so many coincidences in your daily life pushing you closer to your goal without even you realizing it.
– A cousin at the party asked you about your dream job.
– Your best friend at the dinner was talking about the relationship of your dreams.
– Your colleague in the office was asking about what are you doing to achieve your goals
Everything seems to guide you to a new path.
Remember, manifestation can be intimidating but only until you begin to practice it.
So, before we dive deep into the concept, let’s first understand –
What does Manifest Mean?
To display, exhibit, or even appear.
The word manifest can have several meanings, but by the dictionary, it means, to display, exhibit, or even appear.
It is mostly used as a verb, that is, to manifest something or to make it appear out of thin air.
Or, to bring out your dream world into your physical reality.
In simple words, live your dream life.
If you are questioning, whether or not it is possible.
Well, it is VERY much possible, with the law of attraction in play (Don’t worry, we will come there!).
Side Note: The document or a list of cargo or passengers used by the customs and other officials is also called manifest.
For now, let me quickly explain the…
Origin of the word manifest
First recorded in 1350–1400; (adjective) Middle English manifest(e), from Latin manifestus, manufestus “detected in the act, evident, visible”; (verb) Middle English manifesten, from Middle French manifester, from Latin manifestāre, derivative of manifestus. (From Dictionary.com)
Historically, the latin meaning of manifestus, i.e., evident or plain to see is the earliest sense in English. However, the latin verb manifestare, that is a derivative of manifestus, along with the middle French verb manifester, the source of English verb.
But the noun version of manifest that appeared in the late 17th century is derived from the Italian manifesto which means “a public declaration”.
However, Collins dictionary says that it originated from Latin manifestus plain, literally: struck with the hand, from manū with the hand + -festus struck.
After digging deep into the word “manifest”, here’s…
What is Manifestation?
Manifestation is bringing something physical in the real world through thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, i.e., if you think it, it will come.
If you have ever heard the phrase: Thoughts create your reality.
Now is the time to believe in it… word to word.
To begin with, the word manifestation can have multiple definitions but all of them have the same meaning, and that is: bringing something tangible in your real-life through thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.
But that’s not it. There’s more.
Manifesting works only if you make everything you want to feel and experience a reality… via your thoughts patterns, belief system, behaviors, and effects.
In simple words, the power of thought is very much real…
…and if you stay focused on your goals and dreams, doesn’t matter whether it’s about a life partner or money and wealth; it will turn into reality.
Before we move ahead, you need to know…
Manifestation and Spiritualism intersect each other on several grounds which is why manifestation may be termed as a spiritual practice.
By Oxford Dictionary, spirituality is defined as “relating to or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.”
This means, if you ask me whether manifestation is a spiritual practice, I would say essentially yes.
Even though manifestation means bringing some physical things in real life since it deals with thoughts, energies, and power, it somewhere intersects spirituality.
But that doesn’t mean you need to believe in a specific set of rules to manifest.
To be able to manifest, you only need practice also referred to as the Law of Attraction.
But what is the relation between the law of attraction and manifestation… let’s find out!
Law of Attraction and Manifestation
The law of attraction states that you will attract more of whatever you are vibrating. Manifestation is a process that capitalizes on this universal law.
Simply put, manifestation is the by-product of the law of attraction.
Say suppose, you are making efforts to manifest money fast, by visualizing it and taking action to achieve it like spend money very wisely. Now, if you receive your desired amount of money after a certain period, the whole process of doing this is called manifestation and the law that’s at work is the law of attraction.
Now that you are clear about all the basics of manifestation let’s quickly explore…
Manifestation Examples (of Scripting!)
Manifesting can be practiced by using objects, words, meditation, or visualization. For people who like writing instead of creative imagination, they use scripting to manifest. It is an equally effective technique and is very commonly used across the globe for successful manifestation.
Scripting is unique to every human depending on their emotions, imaginations, writing skills, etc. But here are a few points that you must keep in mind if you wish to write a good script:
- Always write your script in the present tense.
- Be very clear about what you want.
- Don’t just describe, experience your emotions
- Show gratitude for what you are receiving
- Believe in what you write
Example 1: When you want to manifest your dream job
I am finally working in my dream place. After cracking all the interviews in a snap, I feel so excited to get up and come to work every morning. I am also getting so well paid. Thank you, Universe for making it happen.
Example 2: When you want to manifest your dream partner
Today, I found the man of my dreams. He is so handsome and all that I have always wanted. He loves me so much. We are getting close with every passing day. I want to thank the Universe for bringing us together.
Example 3: When you want to manifest your dream home
I am living in my dream home. It is so beautiful and straight out of my dreams. Every morning when I wake up in this big house, I just can’t stop gushing over it. I moved in last month and was amazed by the sea-side view. The aesthetics and tranquillity are both beyond my imagination. Thank you, Universe for making my dream a reality.
Example 4: When you want to manifest a transformation
I looked at myself in the mirror today and couldn’t believe it was the same me. After losing 10 kgs, all my old dresses now fit me perfectly. I am also a lot more confident now. I want to thank the Universe for making it all happen.
Example 5: When you want to manifest success
I received a promotion at my job today. It was also accompanied by a 20% raise. My boss was so happy with my progress and couldn’t stop praising me. Thank you, Universe, for making it all happen.
After all this, there’s one question that must be lingering in your head and that is…
How does Manifestation work?
First things first, the manifesting process is not asking the universe for help > step back > wait for your dreams to fall into your lap.
No, it doesn’t work like that. Infact, nothing works like that.
You need to work towards your goals. Take all the actions required to help achieve your dreams.
When the law of attraction works, it combines your positive thoughts with your energetic vibrations to create the life you want. However, this works both ways.
If you are constantly having negative thoughts and feeling down,
So, now the question is,
How to Manifest?
Manifestation works, it definitely does, but for that, you need to know the step by step guide for manifestation.
Even though it is one of the hottest topics in this personal growth conscious world, some people consider manifestation as a hyper-spiritual practice that helps attract positive energy and achieve goals. A few others view it as the result of inspired action and hard work.
In spite of various interpretations, very few people know the real process of practical manifestation. To ensure that you are not among the majority, below I have enlisted the step by step process of manifesting your dreams, whether it is money or the love of your life.
How to Manifest Anything you Desire? (How to Manifest what you want?)
Irrespective of whatever your desire: to find love, attract more money and wealth, or to attract good energy, there’s one thing you must never forget – Intention. The more clear, concise, and specific your intentions are, the easier it will be to manifest your desires.
So, to guide you further, here are the steps to manifest anything you desire:
Step 1: Be clear about what your goals
Successful Manifestation requires clarity, right from the first step. If you don’t know what you want or what you’d like to happen in your life, the Universe won’t know how to help you.
The core concept of the law of attraction manifesting is: you bring what you desire in life. So, how do you think you can manifest something into your life without being clear about what you want?
It’s synonymous with being on a road trip wanting to go to a specific destination, without knowing what that is.
Clarity helps you gain direction. You eliminate all the chances of guesswork and distractions.
Remember, you are the only person who knows what your heart wants, so know your dream and own it.
You need to be as specific as you can be to define your dreams. “I want a lot of money” can land you a hundred cents with most from a different era. “I want a million dollars against my services by the end of March 2021” will be a better option.
You can manifest all that there is, right from a new relationship with a specific person, a new job, or even success in your life. You can use the SMART method for it – Smart, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound, and list 20-25 things that you want to manifest in your life. Make sure you write your affirmations in a positive tone, i.e., don’t use a lot of “don’ts” in it.
Step 2: Ask the Universe
Now that you know what you want to attract in your life, it’s time to communicate it to the universe and ask for it. Like actually, put it out there.
This can be done in various ways: write and journal your goals, creating vision boards, say a prayer, or practice guided meditation. If all of these seem a lot, you can simply write a letter to the universe. The purpose is to send signs to the universe and ask it for the life you desire.
But that’s not it, once you make your ask, you need to truly trust that the Universe has a better plan for you.
Remember, true manifesting is not about you or what you want, it’s about the Universe wanting the best for you.
The Universe has a plan for everyone and when you have achieved your dreams with Universal guidance, there’s some mutual benefit hidden in it. That is, it’s not you alone who is benefitting by manifesting your dream, if you try to look deeper, there sure will be more people who would feel grateful for it.
Side Note: The law of Manifestation only works when you “ask” the universe to fulfill your desires.
Step 3: Start working towards your goals
Manifestation doesn’t mean that you ask the universe and wait for your dreams to come true. You need to take action for it. And not just any action, you need to take powerful, aligned action.
Aligned action is any action you take to reach your goals.
There’s a very thin line between an action list and a wishlist. If you simply create a list and wait for your dreams to fall into your lap, it’s always going to be a wishlist, but if you decide to make it happen, the Universe will notice and conspire to help you in the journey ahead.
For instance, if you wish to attract love, your aligned action might look like making a Tinder profile, updating it with the qualities you want in your dream partner, swiping on the ones you like, and going on a date with the one who is successful in impressing you.
Or, if you wish to attract a good amount of money like $1000 every month, you need to start making extra attempts at work, do overtime, look for side gigs, or bigger opportunities at your workplace.
Making attempts doesn’t mean you need to keep control of every action you take, instead let it flow with your goals.
Trust in the Universe’s plan for you and concentrate on ‘What’, instead of ‘How’.
Break your goals into smaller milestones. For instance, if you want to attract a specific person in one year, see what you can do to achieve that in one month, one day, and so on.
Step 4: Receive and acknowledge what you’re receiving
Manifestation techniques are not magic. They are the reflection of your own thought and it may happen that you don’t always receive exactly what you envisioned.
But if you really wish to manifest your goals, you need to start being mindful and thankful for what you receive. Build faith with the universe and adopt an attitude of gratitude for every moment.
To do this, you can start maintaining a gratitude journal. Before bed, make it a ritual to write at least 3-5 things you are grateful for that day and anything that is bringing you close to creating a life that you have always dreamt of. For instance, if you want to feel loved by a special person, a message from them asking “How are you?” can be the beginning of just what you wanted.
Alongside, also remember, manifesting your dream life is only possible when you believe in it and have faith in your inner wisdom, clarity, and actions.
You also need to learn to be flexible because you wouldn’t always receive things you want in the exact color, timeframe, order, and amount of time.
Step 5: Let go of all limiting beliefs
If you haven’t yet successfully manifested what you desire, it is likely that you are resisting the Universe’s plans for you.
Doubts, pain, anxiety disorders, disbelief, fear, frustration, regret, resentment or anything else that prevents you from believing that you can actually have what you want are all forms of negative beliefs. These are the baggage that pulls you down and prevents you from successful manifestation.
But don’t worry. It’s entirely normal to feel them. But the real winner is who knows how to cross them.
Everything that you tell yourself or believe about yourself, you are indirectly communicating it to the universe. So, make sure you are saying that “you are not good enough!”
To help prevent this, begin with recognizing all the resistances in your mind. Retrospect and write down all the answers. Now cross them and replace them with positive affirmations. For instance, if your limiting belief says “I will not be able to do this”, replace it with “I am going to do this” and see how you automatically attract positive vibes.
If you still have a tough time facing the problem, learn to acknowledge it, and allow yourself the time to get back. You can also seek help from an outsider who is an expert at this.
Step 6: Raise your vibration (or energy)
The power of the law of attraction is very much real and operates on a very simple maxim: you’ll attract what you are sending out.
This means if you want to attract more of what you want, you need to raise your vibrations. Vibrations are the signals you are sending out to the universe and you must make sure that they are worthy of receiving.
All you have to do is stay positive, be thankful, and feel joy.
To do that, you can do anything that feels good. Right from watching a YouTube video, to dancing, or even meditating, spend at least 10-15 minutes of your day to ensure that your vibrational frequency is high.
Other than that, you can also try to optimize your environment in a way that it allows you to live the life you want. You must also try and spend time with people who make you feel happy and motivated from the inside.
In short, don’t ever forget the golden rule of manifestation practice: you attract what you reflect, good or bad.
Step 7: Trust the Process
Manifesting doesn’t work without belief. So, unless you don’t trust the process, there’s no way you can ever reap its benefits.
Pay attention to all the signs from the universe and believe that all of it is for the greater good for you and those around you.
Not only that, but you must also learn to believe in yourself and take ownership of all your actions. Cultivate a financial abundance mindset and keep telling yourself that you are enough. Believe in the power of intention and practice self care. Keep empowering yourself by saying that you have all that is needed to manifest your goals.
You can also use some real-time tricks to help you do that.
There’s one famous law of attraction tips to cultivate belief in oneself, popularly known as the 5*55 method. In this, you need to write a positive affirmation 55 times every day for 5 days. It can be anything like: I have the ability to manifest what I desire or I can accomplish great things or anything else that gives you the desired faith.
In the end,
Don’t forget to track… and also celebrate!
Most people get so focused on the results that they often forget to celebrate the small wins on the way. You are so deeply caught in the act that you are entirely unaware of your progress which may cause discouragement in the long run.
Whether you are manifesting money or manifesting love, it needs time.
To keep up the motivation in this race, you need to keep acknowledging the checkpoints and remind yourself how close you are to the finish line.
Keep rewarding yourself when you achieve these checkpoints and you will never run dry on manifestation.
Trust me, if you don’t do that, the dopamine will be high only for the first few checkpoints, later it will all just be “too much.” Unless, you don’t want to get trapped into the cycle of enough never being enough, celebrate every step of the way.
Even though the process at the crux is the same, there are some slight changes in the practical steps depending on your goal. So, now let’s understand,
How to Manifest Love?
If you want to learn how to manifest love, you need to first start looking for love with real intention like the basic process of manifestation.
You also need to commit to yourself that you want to spend the rest of your life with a specific person. To help successfully capitalize on the law of attraction, you must know how to analyze yourself on a deeper level. For instance, identify the personality traits that you want in your ideal partner or how do you wish to be treated by your partner, and so on.
Further, for manifesting a relationship or a life partner, you first need to be what you want to attract. Love yourself and pamper yourself with various self-care activities and become the person you want in your life.
Now it’s time to communicate it to the world that you are ready for your life partner by repeating daily affirmations or visualization techniques. All that done, now it is all a game of patience and faith – don’t rush about finding your soulmate, just believe that you will find them at the perfect time.
How to Manifest Someone?
Often, people also want to manifest a specific person. It might not necessarily be a romantic partner but anyone – a best friend you lost touch with, a sister you don’t talk to anymore or even your boss who never appreciates you.
To begin with, make sure you don’t obsess over that person. Manifestation isn’t “all” about visualizing, it is also about drawing a balance. When you think of it 24*7, you are giving out negative energy, leading to negative results.
You also need to let go of the blame game and stop making yourself the victim irrespective of whose fault it was. Remember, any sort of negativity can hamper your manifestation.
Also, don’t keep guessing the other person’s intention and give them the benefit of donut. Further, remember all types of manifestation are the same at its core, you just need to believe that it is coming for you.
How to Manifest Money?
If you want to apply the law of attraction to attract money, the basics will still be the same. The only difference is that financial manifestation is dipped in gratitude. That means, start acknowledging what you have irrespective of your struggle.
Manifesting money isn’t possible when you keep focusing on what you don’t have, so instead, practice money manifestation exercises like:
- Visualize a swimming pool of money
- Make a money tree of monopoly
- Imagine that it’s raining money
- Write a big check to yourself that you can materialize one day.
Other than that, make sure you achieve a high level of calmness to be able to successfully manifest money because if you start losing hope, it will not only be frustrating but will also be almost impossible to attract money.
Amidst all of this, don’t’ forget the ABC’s that we discussed above, because that’s the crux of manifestation – you can’t do anything without raising your vibrations or eliminating your limiting beliefs.
How to Manifest Something Fast?
If you see it and believe in it, you will manifest it. But to make sure you don’t have any roadblocks on your way, make sure you are crystal clear about what you want in life.
You can’t afford to confuse the universe and send them mixed signals. Above all, to manifest something faster than usual, take appropriate and aligned actions towards your goals.
You definitely have to ask the universe but your job doesn’t end there. Keep looking out for signs that show plainly success or achievement. Remember, the only person who can prevent you from manifesting what you desire is you yourself.
Don’t let that happen.
So, now moving on to…
10+1 Manifestation Techniques You can Start using Today (Must Read: 369 Manifestation Method!)
There can be various substances of attraction – money, love, relationship, or anything else. But if you want to use the law of attraction to manifest them, here are a few techniques that can help you get started:
1. Practice Multi-Perspective Visualization
While doing creative visualization, most of us imagine our ideal lives. However, in multi-perspective visualization, you imagine your life from a third-person perspective, that is, seeing yourself from the outside.
Keep altering your perspectives and then analyze where you can improve. It might be difficult for people who have always practiced the first-person perspective, but once achieved, third-person perspective can help you manifest things faster.
2. Try Multi-Sensory Visualization
Now that you have learned to change your perspective, it’s time to practice multi-sensory visualizations. That is, you need to go beyond your sense of sight while visualizing your ideal life.
Expand your senses to create a maximizing vivid picture. Visualize the sounds that you can hear, the smell of the environment, the feel of the objects, etc.
The more sensory experience you create in your mind, the easier it will be for you to manifest.
3. Establish a Connection with an Object
Many people use different objects to connect with their reality like crystals, stones, shells, coins, or even pieces of jewelry.
You can use this object during any action you take aligned with your goals. For instance, you can hold it when you are going to the job interview of your dream job or touch it just before your date night with your dream partner.
If your heart pulls you to this object, just trust it.
4. Create Vision Boards
Popularly known as dream boarding, vision boards are one of the simplest yet most effective manifestation techniques.
All you have to do is create images with inspiring quotes, motivation quotes, or positive quotes that align with your goals and display them on a wall where you can see them every day. You can also use magazine cut-outs, your own sketches, or anything else your creative mind can think of.
5. Make use of a Focus Wheel
A focus wheel is a go-to technique for you to shift your focus on positive thoughts. Positivity helps attract positive vibes and it further helps you reach your goals sooner.
To create a focus wheel, take a pen and paper and draw a central circle on it. Inside the circle, write your goals in the present tense. For instance, “I want a job at Facebook”. Now surrounding the wheel, write positive statements that support your goal like “I have all the education required for the job” or “I will crack the interview” etc.
You can either attach this to your dream board or pin it to your fridge or cupboard so that you are always in close proximity.
6. Live the “As If” life
Yes, instead of waiting for your ideal life, start living life like you already have what you want!
Do everything that you would have done “if” you were feeling love from your partner, or “if” you would have cracked your dream job. For instance, buy your date outfit, or buy your office desk furniture.
All these actions send positive signals to the universe and it further conspires to help you achieve it in real.
7. Maintain a Gratitude Journal
Gratitude has immense power both spiritually and emotionally. When you recognize your blessings and appreciate them, it naturally raises your positive vibrations and puts you in a “feel-good” field.
To maintain a gratitude journal, every morning enlist at least 3-5 things that you are grateful about that day and repeat the same at night. It can be as simple as having food at the plate or a smile from a stranger. Learn to appreciate the little things in life, they are the real joy.
8. Activate your Intention Point
If you develop an understanding of the intention point, manifestation will come naturally to you. Infact, intention point techniques are all that you need to successfully manifest anything you desire in life.
So, what is the intention point?
It is the “meeting ground” between the heart and the mind and when you activate it, higher energy flows allowing you to manifest things faster and easier.
9. Practice Diaphragmatic Breathing
Breathing can calm your mind and body in various ways. However, diaphragmatic breathing is referred to the breathing when you inhale-exhale air from the belly, not from the chest.
Prolongate your exhale in comparison to your inhale as when you devoid your body of air for some time, it activates a parasympathetic nervous system. It further boosts relaxation and calmness in your body and helps you to look at things more clearly.
10. Create a Worry List
Humans worry, all the time. Quiet, literally. So, why not create a worry list?
Well, in the ebb and flow of life, it’s quite natural to be worried about several things. A worry list is prepared to enlist all your worries as soon as they come into your mind.
This will not only help you release the stuck energy that prevents manifestation but will also prove to your mind that worrying is a waste of energy.
Bonus: 3 6 9 Manifestation Method
Lately, there’s been a social media trend on manifestation popularized by Clark Kegley, known as 369 manifestation method.
In this method, you need to pick 3 affirmations of your choice, repeat it 6 times in a day and focus on your thoughts for 9 seconds paying attention to what you want to manifest in life. (thus, 3-6-9)
Experts ask to keep practicing this method for 21 days without fail to see the desired results.
After knowing several effective techniques, here are a few
Signs your Manifestation is Working
When you are manifesting, you are very eager to know whether it is really working. The good news is, there are several signs that can help you determine whether your manifestation is close. While some might be really subtle, a few others keep staring right into your face, without you even knowing.
Let’s find out what are they!
1. You hear about your desires very often
This can be from anywhere, a random radio show that apparently is talking about desires that match yours or even a talk show on TV with a topic of your desires. If you often keep hearing your desires, this could be a sign that manifestation is really close.
2. You notice other people discussing your goals
Even though some people are unaware of your goals, they suddenly start talking about them in a conversation. This is a form of good news from the universe that is trying to communicate that your manifestation is working.
3. You bump into repeating numbers
Repeating numbers are often considered a good omen whether you want to manifest a specific person, money, or a relationship. So, if you frequently notice repeating numbers, it can be a sign that your manifestation efforts are working.
4. You feel very excited
If you are feeling good and bumpy for no good reason, there are high chances that your manifestation is already knocking on your doors and your subconscious is feeling it.
If you think you already know all that there is to know about manifestation, you are wrong. Here’s something more.
5 Things you Must know about Manifestation
Manifestation is a lot of things. While some people see it as the science of getting rich, others see it as a law of success; there are also a few who see it as a master key system to turn all your dreams into reality.
However, there’s very little truth to it. In reality, manifestation is just the process of capitalizing on one of the universal laws.
Other than that, if you are learning how to manifest, here are a few things you must know:
1. Manifestation and Spirituality are closely associated
Manifesting practices are often combined with other spiritual or mystical practices, that are of similar nature. If you look at it deeply, it also makes sense.
Most spiritual practices are focused to connect us with ourselves or the holy spirit. For instance, according to some spiritual techniques goal setting can also be done on a full-moon night, as it is considered to be the best time to plant seeds. The “goal setting” part intersects with the manifestation process.
Similarly, it finds common practicing steps in many other practices in the spiritual space.
2. Visualizing your goals can help you achieve it
Visualization is the key to positive manifestation. Infact, manifestation experts ask you to daydream and be excited about life’s possibilities to experience them in real life.
The power of your subconscious mind is immense and if you wish to capitalize on it, every day in the morning, make a list of at least five things you want to experience irrespective of whether they are immediate wishes or long time desires. Repeat it before you go to bed and imagine yourself achieving big things.
Remember, if you always have your dream board at the forefront of your mind, you are more likely to spot opportunities that will push you closer to them.
3. Manifestation is not a quick fix
Like I said, Manifestation is a lot of things but not magic. If you wish to manifest love with a specific person and expect him/her to fall in love with you overnight – let me tell you, it doesn’t work that way.
Dreams come true; it definitely does but you need to give it the time it needs. Manifestation is all about patience and perseverance.
I agree that it can be hard when you want to manifest your dream life but are starting with less – like lack of money, childhood traumas, parents’ divorce, limited education, and so on. But once you acknowledge all your discomforts and disadvantages, it is sure to transform you into a space of healing and trust.
4. There’s a lot more than “you” to manifestation
A lot of times, manifestation is termed as a “good vibes only” practice which is often confused as bypassing the worldly problems.
Nurturing positivity is definitely a part of manifestation but that doesn’t imply that it motivates you to ignore problems in real life. Infact, manifestation is about wanting the best for the people around you.
Life is a manifestation, and if you visualize best for yourself and others, you are sure to attract what you have always wanted.
5. It’s not just what “The Secret” told you
Most people are familiar with the concept of manifestation by the movie and the book, The Secret. It introduces you to the law of attraction that indirectly helps you to manifest your dreams.
However, unlike what the world believes, the law of attraction is just the tip of the iceberg. The universe operates with 11 other laws that God created.
For instance, there is a law of action that explains that it is necessary to take action to manifest anything in your life. That is, if you want to manifest your soulmate, you need to look for love in your life and not just wait for the perfect timing when a man will arrive in white unicorns with his heart on his sleeve.
Manifestation is simple but that doesn’t mean it can’t go sideways. To help prevent that, here are a few
Dos and Don’ts of Manifestation
Like every other practice, manifestation also has certain dos and don’ts. To help you make the most of it, I have enlisted a few below.
Let’s first find out the
1. Trust that the universe plan is better than yours
On one side, you have a plan for yourself and on the other, the Universe has a plan for you. It is possible that sometimes, they don’t match.
In those times, it’s best to surrender and trust that the Universe’s plan for you is better than all else. The Universe looks at the bigger picture and helps establish a happier healthier environment that is beneficial to all.
So, for instance, if all your daily affirmations are guided towards achieving a promotion, and a better opportunity knocks on your door at a different company. Just accept it and move ahead.
2. Practice manifesting daily
Nothing comes easy in life. Whether you want to grow rich or want loving relationships in your life, you need to work for it.
Strat infusing manifestation in your daily life routine if you really wish to manifest. Start with meditating every day, even if it is just for a couple of minutes.
You can also commit to saying a prayer when you feel lost and need guidance.
Remember, we are always manifesting whether or not you do it consciously. If you wish to create the life you have desired, start transforming this unconscious manifestation into consistent efforts.
Wait, here are a few…
1. Practice manifestation at a special place and time
Most people have a divine time and also a place where they practice manifestation techniques. Right from meditation, to journaling, to even saying a prayer, people think spiritual practices should be done at a defined place and time.
When the reality is quite opposite.
When you save your spiritual techniques for a certain part of the day and go about the rest without any thought in mind, you disturb the flow of inspiration.
Remember, inspiration is everywhere and when you compartmentalize it from the rest of your life, you are doing yourself a disservice.
2. Try too hard
“I am manifesting so hard; it should happen very soon”.
Well, no. That’s now how it works.
It’s not like you visualize money every minute of your day and there will be showers of dollars on you or that spending time with your crush will help manifest your ideal partner.
Infact, the more you try to control your life, the more difficult it will be.
The best solution is to be grateful for what you are receiving and keep faith in the Universe – whatever’s coming to you will all make sense in the end!
3. Expect things to materialize exactly as you imagined
The biggest problem among humans is that we try to control everything that we do. We want everything our way and thus, fail to appreciate what the Universe has in store for us.
But this is the biggest mistake you can make while manifesting.
Getting attached to a specific outcome that you have envisioned in your mind will make you too restrictive about what you want. And like I said, it may happen that the Universe has different plans for you but I assure you, it will all be in your favor.
So, don’t ever expect whatever you have written in your journal will magically appear before you. NO. Just trust the Universe and keep going with the flow, the results will be better than what you had imagined.
If you are looking for more resources that can guide you through this concept, here are some…

Frequently Asked Questions about Manifestation
Though manifestation is a very simple topic, there are a few questions that can linger in your head, including…
Yes. Very much.
Famous and successful personalities across the globe have been practicing manifestation for several purposes and the results have been exceptional.
However, you need to remember one thing, nothing is real unless you have faith in it. So, if you want to experience successful manifestation, make sure you have convinced your mind to believe in its power.
Well, it entirely depends on “what” you are manifesting.
If you are constantly thinking negative thoughts, your subconscious will attract negativity and thus have a negative impact on your life.
Remember, manifestation works both ways – if you visualize good, you will attract good but if you think bad, you will also attract bad.
You (or me) are manifesting every moment of our lives, without knowing.
So, it is definitely not a sin until you try to be like God.
Since Manifestation allows you to create your own reality, you start perceiving your own plans as the final plans when in reality God’s plan has a different plan for each one of us. But don’t worry, the plan is definitely for our benefit.
Yes, dreams are often signs of manifestation. It indicates that your manifestation is close to fruition. You might as well get a direction or an answer. If you get some guidance in your dream, you should actually act on it. This can take you to the right path.
You know you are manifesting when small changes suddenly take place in your life. Some of these could be good or apparently bad. But those are just incidents prior to the actual manifestation. The definition of manifestation is a phenomenon or sudden appearance. So, these small shifts in your life make way for the grand incident to take place.
In the end,
Remember, Manifesting is an art!
Of Course, it is.
It is a creative process of co-creating an experience with the Universe.
An experience that elevates your spirit and the spirit of the world.
So, don’t be afraid, start manifesting and leave the rest on the Universe.
