Manifestation is the power to attract your greatest desires through your energy, believing that the Universe will match your vibration and deliver your desires to you.
Manifestation is formed on the basis that your thoughts, words, and actions have power. You’re probably a little hopeful but also skeptical that your dreams could come true so easily, so here are some beginner guidelines on how to manifest.
As a beginner, you can start manifesting by speaking positively about the things you want, believing that they will come to pass, thinking about how it will feel when they come to pass, and acting with the belief that what you desire is on its way to you.
You can manifest anything from a new job, a new house, to a new car. These may seem like big things to expect the Universe to grant you, but manifestation can be used for little things like the perfect parking spot too.
Tips on how to manifest for beginners
Here are some guidelines on how to manifest your greatest desires.
It’s only human to be a little skeptical that you have the power to turn your wildest dreams into a reality. We have been conditioned to believe everything is limited.
We have been taught that there are only so many resources, and we will rarely get what we desire in life. This negative thinking causes us to expect bad things to happen, attracting negativity into our lives.
However, if we start focusing on the good in life, we begin to notice more of it and attract more good things into our lives.
So, begin your manifestation journey with an open mind and an open heart, expectant of all the good things that the Universe has in store for you.
There is so much in life that we take for granted. In order to focus on the good in your life, you need to develop an attitude of gratitude.
Practicing gratitude helps you become cognizant of how fortunate you are and opens your eyes to new ways that you can bless others too. In this regard, the principle “give and you shall receive” is quite applicable.
You can practice gratitude by starting a gratitude journal, listing all the things you are grateful for.
This is a great way to realize all the blessings in your life, beginning your day with a grateful heart or ending your day with an uplifted spirit, depending on whenever you prefer to journal.
By practicing gratitude, you not only change your outlook on things, but also raise your vibration, attracting more positive things into your life.
Write down your desires
Create a virtual or written list of all the things you want out of life, no matter how big or small. Be specific and intentional in your desires.
Don’t hesitate to include who, what, when, where, how, what size, what color, etc. Your dreams matter to the Universe, so there’s no need to hold back; dream big!
Come back to your list regularly, tick off the manifestations that have come to life, and add new ones.
Manifesting is not like a genie that will only grant you a limited number of wishes, so feel free to use it over and over throughout your life to build the life you envision for yourself.
Additionally, you can design a vision board using pictures, words, drawings, or anything symbolic of your dreams.
Place your vision board strategically. Ideally, place it somewhere where you will see it regularly to keep the faith alive.
Alternatively, create a “future box” containing miniature versions of the things you desire in life, like a toy car matching your dream car one day.
If you cannot get hold of miniature versions of your desires, feel free to draw them, print pictures of them, or write out what you envision.
There are no strict rules regarding your vision board or future box. Your vision board or future box should be personalized based on your dreams.
Visualize your desires
Visualizing allows you to believe as if it has already happened. Picture your life as if your dreams have already come true.
Visualizing will increase your vibrational frequency, aligning you with the things that you seek most in life.
Visualize yourself driving your new car. Visualize yourself unlocking the door to your new home. Visualize yourself turning into the perfect parking spot.
Speak your desires into existence
Your words have power. It might be challenging at first, but it’s crucial that your words align with your manifestations. It’s easy to complain in frustration.
However, all the negativity from complaining and engaging in negative conversations lowers your vibrational frequency and puts you in a negative mindset.
Speak what you wish to see in your life, and hold your tongue on things you wouldn’t like to see manifest into your life.
Speak with the confidence that good things are coming your way, and watch the Universe provide them for you at your fingertips.
When speaking your desires into existence, be careful who you share your manifestations with. Not everyone will want to see you achieve good things in life, and their negative energy can throw off the energy you are trying to put into the Universe.
Align your actions with your desires
In order for your dreams to manifest, they must be in alignment with your actions. You cannot say you want one thing and have your actions dictating the complete opposite of what you are trying to manifest.
You need to act with intention, in the confidence that the Universe will bring the right opportunities across your path.
If you really want the Universe to bless you with a car, go out and get your driver’s license in the expectancy that you’ll be blessed with a car. If you want to get a new job, apply to various places that interest you.
There’s more to manifesting than just hoping for “right time, right place” opportunities. Put in the work, put yourself in the position to grab new opportunities, and watch the Universe make things fall into place for you.
Meditation allows you to raise your vibration, increase your energy and connect with your higher self. Meditation calms the mind, allowing you to breathe calmly, center yourself, and align yourself with your surroundings.
Meditating is an excellent opportunity to check in with your body and feed your mind positive affirmations. Meditating will help you become more in tune with yourself and your desires, enabling you to manifest what you truly want in life.
Adjust your mindset
Identify any limiting beliefs that exist in your mind that may cloud your vision. If you feel you don’t have the skills, competency, or knowledge to achieve your dreams, your thoughts are limiting your personal growth.
Negative self-talk breaks you down, lowering your self-esteem, causing you to vibrate at a lower frequency.
You have to believe that you deserve your manifestations.
If you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts about why you don’t deserve to receive what you desire in life, take a moment to pause and counter those negative thoughts and emotions with positive self-talk.
Once you have manifested something, you need to let it go.
Holding onto your manifestations in fear, wondering how they will come to life and how you can do everything within your own strength to make it happen will only bring negative energy and strain to what you are trying to manifest.
Give your hopes and dreams to the Universe and trust that the Universe is using its infinite power to bring your manifestations to life.
Once you have received any manifestation, remember to practice gratitude by thanking the Universe for what you have received.
Pop over to your gratitude journal, write about the manifestation that came to life, and tick it off your manifestations list.
The Universe has infinite power and wants to grant you the desires of your heart. Believe, and you will receive. Go out and manifest with the confidence that the Universe is working to bring good things your way!
