Manifestation has become a popular topic nowadays, and you can find more and more people talking and writing about it.
People have always sought ways to improve their life, get rich, and change in their lives. This why, every now and then, a new technique emerges, becomes popular, and then makes room for a new one.
Did you know that all these techniques have something in common? They are the same technique in various forms and with different labels.
Once, manifestation was called the power of thoughts, then, it was called creative visualization, later, the law of attraction, and now it is manifestation.
All these techniques are different names for the same thing. Since the current label is manifestation, or manifesting, I will use this term in this article.
What Is Manifestation?
What is manifestation and does it work?
We need to know what does manifestation mean if we wish to use it.
The short and concise definition is:
Manifestation is the ability to manifest in your life the things, people and situations you want.
The manifestation process can help you achieve your dreams and desires, manifest money, love, and better health.
Wikipedia defines manifestation as follows:
“Manifestation refers to various self-help strategies intended to bring about a personal goal, primarily by focusing one’s thoughts upon the desired outcome. The techniques are based on the law of attraction.”
Wikipedia also says, “The process involves positive thinking, directing requests to ‘the universe’, and involves action-steps on the part of the individual.”
What Are the Tools of Manifestation?
Have you tried to manifest something? Did you persevere, or quit after a few days, since nothing happened?
If you got no results, you must have missed some important steps.
The main tools of manifestation are your thoughts, your mind, the law of attraction, and creative visualization – the power of your imagination.
Visualization is similar to daydreaming. Everybody daydreams, but do all daydreams turn into reality? No, they don’t, but following the rules of the law of attraction and of creative visualization can make your dreams come true.
Just visualizing your goal is not enough. You need to do more.
There are a few important ingredients, which you need to add to the equation to get results. These are:
Feelings – They supply the energy to your thoughts. To make electrical devices work you need electricity. To make thoughts and visualization work, and create the things you want, you need to put feeling into the process.
This means awakening desire, interest, ambition, and the feeling that you already possess what you want.
Faith – You need to truly believe that you can get what you want. You should have no doubts at all. Doubts weaken your thoughts, and drive away your dreams.
Focus – You need to focus your attention and direct your mental power to the mental image you create in your mind.
You need to fix your attention on the mental image you create in your mind.
If you allow your mind to wander wherever it wills when you are trying to manifest, you are wasting your energy and not giving your thoughts the power, which they need to manifest your goal.
Just think about successful people, did they just thought about a certain goal for a few minutes in a lukewarm way and got what they wanted? No, there was passion, ambition, strong desire, perseverance and sustained focus.
To manifest something you need motivation, positive thinking and strong desire. You need to open your mind to opportunities and take action.
Why Manifestation Fails Sometimes
- If you failed, you didn’t do it right.
- If you tried manifestation and it did not work, it’s most probably that you have not done it right.
- Maybe you tried to attract the perfect spouse, a good job, friends, or something else and it did not work.
- Maybe you got disappointed and frustrated when nothing happened within a few days.
Disappointment and frustration awaken negative feelings, and these feelings manifest more disappointments and frustrations.
- If you tried and nothing happened, you need to detach yourself from the negative feelings that arise, otherwise, you will attract more disappointments.
- You need to make an inner change, start to be more positive, and believe your power to manifest.
You need to check what you did wrong, and learn how to proceed correctly.
With manifestation, you can have almost everything you desire, love, success, money, friends, a house or a car. However, you have to be willing to work for what you manifest. When an opportunity comes you need to recognize it, step out of your comfort zone, and take action.
You can’t just visualize a perfect body, a dream job, or lots of money, and expect it to happen immediately through thin air.
Often, it is a gradual process. You can manifest ideas, motivation, helpful people and opportunities to gain what you want.
There are signs on the way, and you need to heed them and not miss them, and you need to take action.
If you’re trying to manifest a million dollars or a Ferrari next month, you will have great doubts that you will get them, unless you are already a millionaire.
If you are trying to manifest your dream job, but don’t have the skills for it, you will not only doubt your ability to get, but no wan will hire you. You first need to get the skills and qualifications for the job.
You need to believe you can get it, if you wish to get the job. You need to gain the qualities and skills required for the job, in order for the universe and your potential employer co-operate with you, and help you get it.
It is wiser to set smaller, realistic goals that you believe you can achieve, at first. Once you start manifesting these goals, your confidence will increase, and you will be able to do greater things.
What Does it Mean to “Manifest” Your Dreams?
To manifest something is to create it using the power of your thoughts, imagination and your subconscious mind, and to get the help of the Universal Mind.
It means making your dreams come true, through the correct use of your thoughts, imagination and manifesting techniques.
How is it possible for your thoughts and imagination to manifest your dreams and goals?
When you believe in something, focus on it and visualize it, you change how you see the world, how you perceive others. You open yourself to receiving and recognizing opportunities and possibilities.
The Universe responds to your vibes and offers opportunities to those who are open to receive them.
For example, let’s say you need a car. You decide whether it’s new or second-hand car. You visualize its shape and color, and imagine yourself driving it.
You also check out how much it costs, and what are your financial options. Then, you find yourself thinking more and more of this car. You see such cars on the road, in magazines, and in other places.
You become interested in reading ads about cars, or visit cars showrooms.
Sooner or later, you will be guided to the car you want, and the circumstances would be right for you to own this car.
You might attract various opportunities:
- You might find a better paying job.
- Get a loan you can afford.
- Get a promotion or bonus at work.
- Earn money from some good investments.
- You might get the car through your job.
- You might even receive it as a gift.
There are many channels through which you can get the car.
How to Manifest Anything
- Decide what is it that you want.
- In your imagination, create a clear mental image of what you want.
- Focus on this image with faith and love.
- Treat the mental image as reality.
- Ask the Universe for guidance, and believe that it is attracting what you want into your life.
Your external world is a reflection of your inner world. It reflects your beliefs and your predominant thoughts.
Believing and acting as if you have already achieved your goal, or being in the process of achieving it, would attract the right opportunities to accomplish and get what you want.
I have read many books and articles on creative visualization and the law of attraction, studied them, and followed what they taught. As my experience increased, I decided to write a book on this topic.
In this book, Visualize and Achieve Your Dreams, I have provided all the information and guidance you need to make manifestation work for you.
