You might not know this, but you are powerful. All humans have the ability to manifest their desires in their lives and bring their dreams to fruition. Though different schools of thought will attribute this power to endless mediums, from magic to gemstones to angels to religion, many manifesting experts agree that creating your dream life comes down to one simple concept: the Law of Attraction. Read about how to manifest the things you want in your life using the Law of Attraction below!
Build your belief. The theory of the Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. In other words, you attract back into your life what you put out through your thoughts and emotions. Happy vibes lead to happy experiences and miserable vibes lead to miserable experiences. By that logic, if you believe that you have no power to manifest what you want, then you will only attract not manifesting. You’ll get back what you put in. So the first step is to build up your belief. Study examples of how others have manifested what they want and know that it’s possible for you too. Embrace how powerful you are!
Get clear on what you want. To manifest something, you have to know what it is. Your chances of successfully manifesting are a lot slimmer when you’re vague. Instead of desiring a standard car, ask yourself exactly what car you want. If you’re trying to manifest a relationship, list the exact qualities that are important to you, that you’re trying to bring into your life. It all starts with crystal-clear clarity.
Set your intention. Ask and ye shall receive. It’s enough just to mentally figure out what you’d like to manifest. But setting the intention out loud can help. Simply ask the Universe for what you want, which you figured out in the previous step. Some Law of Attraction gurus believe that it’s better to set the intention in the present tense. Instead of saying, “I wish I got a promotion,” say it as if it’s already happened: “I got a promotion.”
Visualize. To manifest something, you have to emit the same vibrational frequency as that thing. Put simply, you have to feel like you have it already, as that energy is what’s going to bring it to you. One of the fastest ways to do this is through visualization. If you want to manifest a new car, take a few minutes to visualize that car in your life. What does it look, feel, smell, and sound like? Imagine yourself sitting in the driver’s seat, with your hands on the wheel. The more clearly you see it in your mind, the more likely you are to feel like you have it already. And the faster it will come to you.
Make inspired action. Although the Law of Attraction is powerful, you still have do a few things too if you want to manifest your desires! You can’t just leave it all up to the Universe. Instead, you have to take inspired action. After you’ve set your intention for what you want, do things that will get you closer to that goal. For example, if you want to be a best-selling novelist, you actually have to sit down and write that novel. Inspired action usually feels good, like you’re on the right path when you do it. It shouldn’t feel like a struggle (though it may challenge you in some ways).
Release resistance. Resistance is one of the biggest reasons why people aren’t able to manifest their desires. Even when the Universe is trying to send your desires right to your door, your resistance will ensure you never get them. Resistance refers to you resisting the flow of the manifesting process, most often by misaligning your vibrations. If you’re trying to manifest a boyfriend, but you keep wondering why you’re single and feeling unlovable, the resistance is you not operating from a place of love—which you need to be in to attract love. Releasing resistance can be a tricky process, but it starts with getting rid of all your limiting beliefs. Question all the negative thoughts you have that are getting in the way of you aligning with your desire, such as feeling unlovable when trying to manifest love.
Repeat affirmations. Affirmations aren’t essential to manifesting your desires, but they can help to speed the manifestation process up. When you repeat a phrase consistently enough, it can reprogram your subconscious mind and change your perspective. So if you repeat an affirmation like, “I am lovable,” you eventually really do start to feel lovable. That will put you on the right frequency of love to attract a loving relationship, if that’s your desire.
Practice gratitude. An attitude of gratitude is one of the most important assets in the manifesting process. Why? When you feel grateful, you put out grateful energy and grateful vibrations. So according to the Law of Attraction, you can only attract more things that will make you feel grateful. You’ll feel grateful when you manifest what you want, so practicing gratitude can be a very powerful tool. You can do this simply by listing three things to be grateful for every day.
