Every successful person on the planet understands the Law of Attraction on a deeper level than those who are not successful. Every quote and biography from every great pioneer from industrialists to fashion designers demonstrates their understanding of the Law of Attraction despite the fact that most of them don’t know it by that name.
Although many of them don’t have a formal education of what the Law of Attraction is, they do intuitively understand what it takes to have the world meld with their desires in order to produce quantifiable and very tangible outcomes simply by making a decision and using their intent as a manifesting force.
Manifestation is not magic. It is a process of working with natural principles and laws in order to translate energy from one level of reality to another. I’ve learned manifestation through a lot of people. Let me debunk it for you.
What is Manifestation?
To manifest something is to put it in plain view, or make it obvious. It’s the act of taking something intangible – like an idea or visualization – and bringing it into physical existence.
Manifestation should be seen as a loose term, describing everything from manifesting a medical miracle through prayer or meditation to manifesting a good grade by studying. In other words, manifestation is magical; but it’s also a really down-to-earth process.
It’s important to understand manifestation through a practical lens. It’s like gravity in the sense that it’s a force that’s always acting on you. Said another way:
You’re always manifesting whether you’re consciously aware of it or not.
In fact, you’re a living manifestation engine, constantly absorbing the world around you, consciously assessing it, and then churning out a new reality that awaits your assessment. Idiomatically, the serpent eats its tail.
This process is always happening and it leads to subconscious beliefs and perceptions that are formed over time by your thoughts, reactions, judgments, biases, and emotions. Once the conscious stuff takes root in your subconscious, it blasts out in all directions creating the physical reality that you perceive with your senses. Baam!
This means that manifestation is an unconscious process, but it can be directed through conscious means. You’ve a great deal of control over the fuel you’re putting into your manifestation engine. You’ll not always be able to decide what gets put in front of you, but you’ll always have the prerogative to choose what it means to you. This, my friend, is where your Power begins.
I want to point out that manifestation is less about controlling reality and more about changing your mind about it. Accept what already is and know that it’s for your own good. The stars do the rest.
Life, as you’ll see, is much easier when you simply allow it to flow over you.
Changing your manifestation habits is sometimes as simple as being aware of what you’re saying and thinking. Words and thoughts have measurable energy associated with them and can, cumulatively, have a huge effect on your reality. Replacing negative thoughts and words with positive ones will give an enormous benefit to your quality of life.
On the other hand, manifestation is a skill. and as a skill it must be practiced and cultivated. Anything can be manifested, but some things are interpreted as harder than others based on the individual’s belief, a wider social construct, or a physical law. But these are all, of course, superficial limitations.
There is no degree of magnitude when it comes to miracles. One isn’t easier than the other. But when there’s a great deal of thought and emotional energy against the intended manifestation, the act of materializing it may seem more difficult to achieve.
Here’re a few examples of things that one could physically manifest:
- An object (car, house, coffee, etc.)
- Money or financial freedom
- A desired lifestyle or relationship
- A concept or an idea
- A new personality or identity
If what you’re trying to manifest appears to be impossible, remember that time isn’t a factor in when a manifestation materializes. Manifestation occurs in a non-physical dimension apart from the material realm of time and space. Nonetheless, it’s just as real as anything you see with your eyes and touch with your fingers. Especially when your manifestation becomes tangible.
An important feature of manifestation methods that doesn’t get discussed much is the subjectivity. The process of manifestation can be broken down and delineated into any number of steps or actions. Moreover, manifestation techniques can differ from person to person and from situation to situation. Whereas one person likes to recite mantras for lifestyle design, that same person might want to use visualization for manifesting their financial or career objectives.
How Does Manifestation Work?
Manifestation works by declaring the desire and then understanding the true fact that the path will be shown to you. Loosely: have faith and don’t doubt.
Easier said than done. “Just have faith,” they say. Faith, like manifestation, is a skill that takes practice. It’s learned over time through cultivating an understanding and acceptance of what’s True. And, manifestation is as True as gravity.
Faith isn’t so much an action as it is a habit — a way of life.
Consider for a moment what it means to create something. You can create a village. You can create a work of art, physically and digitally. You can create an ideological movement. You can create a thought…or an emotion. and you can certainly create a belief. A belief that, once sufficiently rooted in the subconscious, begins doing some creating of its own–reality! Whoa, this is getting a little heavy here, isn’t it?
Imagine for a minute that you’re standing on a stage behind a curtain. The audience is expecting a phenomenal speech from the speaker, who of course is you.
Take a few moments and picture yourself standing there as the curtain lifts. You’re the star of this show. Everyone’s eyes are on you as you approach the podium and they’re waiting to hear what you’ve to say. And, just as you begin to open your mouth, you quickly realize you cannot remember your speech.
Did you get a feeling of nervousness? Where did that emotion come from? You created it out of nothing. You also created the scene that you imagined in your mind. Now, does this mean that it will manifest physically? Probably not. Not unless to put the sufficient amount of energy toward the visualization with the intention and faith that it materializes.
Still, you created it with your mind and it became real, whether in this dimension or the next.
What is the Law of Attraction?
Have you ever heard of the Law of Attraction? Maybe you caught wind of it from The Secret, a book or movie that had everyone buzzing. In simple terms, this law states that what you think and feel can have a direct impact on what happens in your life.
Of course, not everyone is on board with this idea. You might encounter some skeptics who scoff at the thought of positive thinking changing your circumstances. But don’t let them bring you down! The Law of Attraction isn’t some magical solution that will bring you riches and luxury without any effort. It’s more like a boomerang effect: what you put out into the world comes back to you.
Interestingly, this concept has been around for quite some time, way before The Secret came along. People have been exploring the relationship between mind and body, and the power of positive thinking, since the early 1800s.
So, how does this all work? Basically, the Law of Attraction suggests that your thoughts and feelings can create a “vibration” that attracts similar experiences or circumstances. If you focus on negativity and lack, you might find yourself stuck in a cycle of disappointment and frustration. But if you focus on abundance and positivity, you may start to notice more opportunities and blessings coming your way.
Now, this doesn’t mean you can just sit back and wait for good things to fall into your lap. Action is still required! You have to take steps toward your goals and desires, and trust that the universe will support you along the way.
L.O.A. is not a magic trick or a shortcut to success, but rather a powerful tool for creating a more fulfilling and abundant life. Give it a try and see what happens!
In the following section, we’ll talk more about how you can manifest what you want in life through thoughts and emotions.
5 Steps to Manifest What You Really Want in Life
Manifestation is a powerful tool that can help you achieve your goals and create the life you desire. Here are the steps to help you manifest your dreams:
Step 1: Get Clear on Your Goals
When it comes to manifestation, the first step is crucial because it sets the direction for your journey. It’s important to take some time to reflect and ask yourself some questions. What is it that you really want to achieve? How do you want your life to look like?
But, here’s the thing. It’s important to make sure that what you want is something you truly desire, and not just something you’re pursuing to impress others or because you’re scared of missing out. This requires introspection and reconnecting with your values.
You can start by thinking about what you’re naturally drawn towards. What have you always longed for? What is it that you want to give to the world? Remember, your goals can be anything – it doesn’t have to be something grandiose or complicated. It could be something as simple as finding a job that you truly love, learning how to communicate in a clear and peaceful way, working towards animal welfare, or anything that resonates with you.
As you reflect on your goals, also think about the kind of person you want to be and how you want to be remembered. Choose goals that align with your values and the kind of person you want to become. Remember, this is just the first step towards achieving your goals. The next step is taking action toward making them a reality.
Step 2: Focus and Commit
So, you’ve set your goals, that’s great! Now it’s time to fully commit and stay focused on achieving them. Don’t let any distractions, whether they come from external sources like people, situations, or changes, or internal sources like negative thoughts, lead you astray.
Building a healthy mind is key to staying on track. Think of it like nurturing a seed until it grows into a resilient and capable tree. With a healthy mind, external factors like storms and unreliable conditions won’t shake your resolve, and you’ll be able to flourish even when things get tough.
That’s why it’s so important to focus on strengthening your mind. By watering and caring for it consistently, you’ll find it easier to stay committed and focused on your goals. So, let’s get to work and start building that healthy mind!
Step 3: Choose Your Thoughts
Well, it turns out that choosing optimistic and confident thoughts consistently can have a profound effect on your life.
Sure, it’s easy to feel motivated when things are going well, but the real challenge is maintaining that positivity when life throws you a curveball. But don’t worry, it’s not impossible. In fact, it’s as easy as telling yourself that it’s easy!
We should all strive to be positive and choose healthy thoughts, even when things seem tough. Remember, our reality shouldn’t shape our thoughts – it’s the other way around. We have the power to create the reality we want by choosing our thoughts wisely.
It’s okay to hope for a better tomorrow. In fact, it’s a sign of resilience. So let’s keep our heads up and keep choosing those positive thoughts. After all, everything is going to be okay, and we’ve got this!
Step 4: Surround Yourself with Positive People
If you’re looking to boost your mental health and overall happiness, then listen up. It turns out that the people we spend time with can have a big impact on our state of mind. So, here’s the deal: if you want to feel good, surround yourself with people who lift you up!
You know the type of folks I’m talking about – the ones who always see the bright side of things, who offer a shoulder to cry on, and who encourage you to be your best self. These are the people who will help you maintain a positive outlook on life and be there for you when times get tough.
On the flip side, if you’re hanging around with negative nellies who constantly complain, focus on the negative, and bring you down, then you’re going to end up feeling pretty down too. It’s a simple concept, but one that can have a huge impact on your mental health.
So, when you’re choosing who to spend your time with, opt for people who are realistic but still optimistic. These are the ones who don’t bury their heads in the sand when things get tough, but who also don’t lose sight of the fact that things will get better. They believe that they have the power to make positive changes in their lives, and they’ll inspire you to do the same.
Ultimately, we all want to be happy and at peace. And it’s those who believe that they deserve happiness and actively pursue it who end up experiencing it on a deep, meaningful level. So, go ahead and surround yourself with positive, supportive people who will help you live your best life.
Step 5: Practice Manifestation Techniques
I want to share with you three techniques that I use myself and that I think you should try too.
First up, we have gratitude journaling. This technique is all about shifting your perspective from scarcity to abundance. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, start appreciating the little blessings in your life. Trust me, it’ll make a huge difference in how you feel and how you manifest.
Next, we have positive affirmations. These are powerful statements that you can use to affirm good feelings or respond to challenging situations. Here are some examples to get you started:
- The future I want is happening right now.
- I am a magnet for my dreams and goals.
- Everything I do turns into success.
- I am present, strong, blessed, and abundant.
- I am capable of manifesting anything I want.
- I am led by love and joy.
- I am a powerful manifestor.
And finally, we have vision boards. These are visual tools that help you stay focused on your goals and keep a positive mindset. To create a vision board, simply build a collage of words and pictures that represent your dreams and aspirations. This will serve as a tangible example of where you want to go and who you want to be.
Just remember, these techniques take time and practice. You’ve been living in a certain mindset for years, so it’s only fair to give yourself time to change. But if you trust the process and stay committed, you’ll manifest a beautiful reality in no time.
Manifestation is a powerful tool for creating the life we want. By surrounding ourselves with positive people and practicing gratitude journaling, positive affirmations, and vision boarding, we can cultivate a positive mindset that supports our manifestation goals. Remember, manifestation is a lifelong process, so be patient with yourself and trust in your ability to create a beautiful reality.
