Most people think of manifestation as either something spooky or one where only a specific few can achieve. The misuse of the name has even provided a ground for scam artists who take advantage of people’s desperation.
It is understandable if you are skeptical about manifestation. This article will shed more light on the topic and even guide you on the best techniques and the steps to follow if you want to take advantage of the opportunities offered by manifestation.
What Is ‘Manifestation’?
Manifestation, in its purest form, is the transformation of energy into matter. In personal experience, manifesting brings something into physical life or reality through your thoughts, beliefs, actions, and feelings.
It is essential to be aware of manifestation because, even when not doing it intentionally, you are still manifesting. You could be manifesting things you do not want in your life. A look at how manifestation works will explain how this is possible.
How Does Manifestation Work?
Manifestation follows the law of attraction and the principle that everything in the universe vibrates at a different frequency from objects to abstract things like our thoughts and feelings. Our subconscious mind is even more powerful, being the source and store of your deepest thoughts and beliefs and attitudes. The law of attraction states that we attract what we send out to the universe.
The content of your subconscious mind determines the reality you are experiencing. Negative thinking and low-frequency emotions like anger, fear, and aspects like low self-esteem, will be sent back to you, affecting your circumstances and affairs in your life.
So, whether you are doing it intentionally or not, you will still manifest your reality. Knowing how this works allows you to control the future and bring forth your desires and goals.
Manifestation is a creative process, and you have to approach it with the awareness and responsibility you would anything you are physically creating. It has to follow an order, and you have to be consistent in your approach and the tactics used.
Effective manifestation follows the following steps;
1. Choose What You Like To Manifest
For it to be intentional, you have to decide what you want to manifest. The choice directs all your other actions and thoughts. It cannot be a random selection or keep changing since this will affect the energies you are sending out.
It has to be something you want, and you believe you can manifest within the set time frame. Think about how it feels when you think about that desire or goal, how it will benefit you and even others, why you want it, and if it feels right.
2. Get Rid of Blocks That Stand In Your Way
In most cases, when you start your manifestation journey, there will be a couple of blocks on your way, which prevents you from attaining your goals. Usually, it is your mindset and negativity that is the biggest obstacle.
You need to stop doubting yourself and focus on positivity. Practice more self-care and self-love to get into the right mindset that will allow you to manifest the good things you want in life.
3. Eliminate Negative Influences From People, TV, Social media.
Another thing to be eliminated for you to manifest your desires are the negative influences in your life. These include toxic people in your life, including friends and relatives, social media, and TV.
People who distract you from your focus or criticize your ability to attain your desires and social media and TV influences that give rise to feelings of jealousy, greed, or low self-esteem, will negatively impact your ability to actualize your dreams.
4. Use Manifestation Techniques
To make the most of your manifestation, you need to know the best techniques for the process. It is not a matter of wishful thinking but clear steps with defined aims.
Manifesting has to be a continuous activity, and these techniques help you achieve that. There are many techniques, and it is possible to combine several of them cumulatively for the most impact.
5. Take Action Towards That You Want To Manifest
As already mentioned, manifesting is more than wishful thinking. Whatever you want to manifest will push you into taking action in making this happen. It is also the way to keep your thoughts in tune with your desire.
It could be reaching to the contacts or network you need to realize your goal or even going for the job interview or a test and audition you have to take.
6. Feel Gratitude For The Results
Once your manifestation process bears fruits even when they happen gradually, you have to express gratitude for that. Trace to the first time you recognized that your thoughts and beliefs were becoming a reality and connect with those feelings.
Be grateful for everything that is being actualized and appreciate the whole process. It may seem a simple step, but it is essential in making you become better at manifesting and attracting more of your desires and rewards from the universe.
Manifestation techniques allow you to fully embrace manifestation as a habit and be conscious of it. Different techniques work on different parts of your brain and consciousness and help you achieve the right mindset and perspective to life that makes manifestation successful.
Many methods complement each other, so feel free to use as many as you can. Here are the best and easy to execute manifestation techniques.
Meditation has become popular thanks to the number of celebrities and titans doing it as well as the number of studies done regarding it and the various schools, guides, and resources online. Daily meditation helps you with manifestation since it allows you to start from the point of calmness and internal peace, not anxiety and fears.
It also allows you to examine the negative feelings and trauma that could be manifesting unpleasant feelings in your life. Furthermore, you have the best opportunity for you to identify what you want most and the toxic elements in your life you should change.
● Vision Board
A vision board is more like a scrapbook of your manifestation practice. It allows you to create an overview of all the things you desire to achieve in life. As a result, it is a useful tool in bringing clarity to your manifestation. You can create a vision board using a variety of supplies, including heavy-duty paper, flyers, glue, magazines, and writing tools.
The vision board allows you to think broadly and capture everything from the home you want to have to the people you need in your life. You can always come back to it to get motivated and align your thoughts according to these desires.
● Multi-Sensory Visualization
Multi-sensory visualization takes the usual visualization a step further. In the usual practice, it is easy to picture yourself as a doctor, but the image is not powerful enough to dominate your subconscious mind. With multi-sensory visualization, you engage all the senses to create a rich, vivid picture and the feelings you will have in your desired position.
For example, using the goal to be a doctor above, picture yourself in a doctor’s uniform, talking to patients the sounds and the feeling, the pride and sense of achievement and duty, etc.
The universe will react to your emotions currently as if you were already a doctor. The richer your visualizations, the faster your frequencies, and you attract your desires much sooner.
● Gratitude Journal
Powerful manifestation comes from a place of gratitude. Expressing gratitude recognizes the positives the universe has granted you and places you in a positive mindset and thankful one.
It is easy to focus on what is lacking, but by having a gratitude journal, you note down the positive things you have experienced during the day and how they have impacted. A daily practice of updating the journal also allows you to believe you deserve all that you want to manifest.
● Letter From Your Future Self
One of the powerful manifesting techniques is a letter from your future self. Your future self is much wiser, more experienced, and – if you desire the best in life, in a better place than your present self. In writing a letter from your future self, you visualize your successful future in a position you want to be at that set time.
You need to imagine the ideal future then connect with it in terms of how you will be feeling and finally expect and believe that the future is in the process of being realized.
● Power Affirmations
Affirmations are confidence-building statements regarding a perceived truth you believe in or desire you want to actualize. Power affirmations add emotion to the content. So, you experience the emotion, whether it is joy or gratitude, and then state the affirmation.
When repeated regularly, they reprogram your subconscious mind while at the same time sending positive thoughts and emotions to the universe.
● Aligning With The Right People
As highlighted earlier in the manifestation process, the people around you can be stumbling blocks standing in the way of your manifestation. As you move away from the toxic company, find people who are positive and will encourage and challenge you to reach your goals, and boost your manifestations.
You can find these positive influences and feed on their energy and positivity, even on social media platforms.
● Living “As If”
In its essence, living ‘As If’ is a make-believe technique, and it is more potent for that. You simply work, live, and spend every day as if you were living your ideal life and doing the ideal job. It is based on the powerful premise that you attract what you are and in living as you would want to become you raise your energy levels and positive frequency to the point where you become your ideal self.
It sounds simple, yet when put in action it changes your mindset and sends powerful frequencies to the universe that get your desires manifesting as you want.
● Subliminal Messages
Subliminal messages are those audio and visual messages which are at a low frequency, which passes the conscious mind. The idea is to escape the barriers created by the conscious mind, which may affect your mindset.
If you are having difficulties in accepting manifestation and making it work for you, subliminal messages will help you overcome them because the message gets to the subconscious mind, which is responsible for intuition, values, long-term memory, feelings, and thoughts.
● Bedtime Reprogramming Routine
Bedtime reprogramming routine aims to send messages to your subconscious mind at a time when it is most receptive to new information. This is because, during this time, the dominant brainwave frequency is theta.
The subconscious mind is in a better position to download new information and work them in your belief system so you can listen to a positive affirmation and inspired recordings and even chat your mantras as you fall asleep.
Scripting is another powerful manifestation technique because it allows you to be the architect of your story. The core of scripting is writing down your future as if it has already happened.
You can script your life in terms of one goal, your following day, or where you want to be at a particular time. You have to include enough details and emotions to visualize that state as having already happened.
● Guided Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a method that allows the conscious mind to take a backseat and brings the subconscious brain to the fore. Guided hypnosis is a useful tool when you are struggling with visualization.
It helps bypass barriers and also gets the messages to the subconscious part of the brain when it is highly suggestible. You are able to create vivid visualizations and reprogram your beliefs.
● EFT technique: Emotional Freedom Technique
The Emotional Freedom Technique is also known as tapping describing the way it works. It is similar to acupuncture in the sense that it targets meridian and pressure points around the body.
The only difference is that in EFT, instead of using needles on the points, you tap them with your fingertips following a specific order. Tapping on these areas helps restore a balance in the body’s energy having healing and restorative properties as well as psychological benefits.
It is the latter that is tapped to enhance your manifestation by helping you get rid of the mental blocks in your way, improve your visualization, and to make your affirmations more powerful.
Manifestation is a process that allows you to take charge of your life. You will have to change your mindset and specific aspects of your lifestyle. You do not have to accept what you get, and more importantly, you will know how to prevent the negative manifestations in your life but intentionally manifesting the future and reality, you desire.
Practice several of these techniques and make it a consistent practice remembering to be grateful for every progress and success attained.
