Is it real or just woo-woo? What is Manifestation anyway?
Manifesting and the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction and manifestation are nothing new. The concept has been around for centuries and can even be seen in the Bible. While many people have heard of it, most are still left wondering, “What is Manifestation exactly?”
I’m so excited you asked because it’s something that I believe can have a powerful impact on your life, your family, and your business.
I know…it sounds a little out there and woo woo, but hang in here with me while I share the general concept of manifestation. After all, if it can change your life for the better, isn’t it worth a minute of your time?
Here is a brief description of how to manifest what you want in your life.
What is Manifestation?
Manifestation is simply thinking about something that you genuinely want and bringing it to reality. The law of attraction and manifestation are about what you are putting out into the universe. Meaning, what you think about and focus on is what you get back in your life. While this is putting it all in very simplistic terms, the idea itself is just as easy.
Deciding What You Want, No Matter What It Is
When it comes to manifestation, you focus your mind on what you want and know that it is exactly what you will get.
We get what we want or think about often in this life because we manifest it. Most often, we manifest things without even realizing it.
Have you ever heard it said that miserable people stay miserable and happy people stay happy? When you are sad and unhappy, you focus on the things that keep you feeling like that. But the more you think about them, the more “bad” things happen.
It is the same with being happy. Have you ever noticed that some people seem to have all the good things happen to them? It is because they focus and think about good things. This is the law of attraction at work.
How to Manifest What You Want in Your Life
If you want things to happen in your life, try these manifestation tips.
Have a Vision and a Feel It
Whatever you want, think long and hard, and make sure it is precisely what you want in your life. You must genuinely want it. Once you know what you want, when you think about attaining it, you will feel happier and lighter.
In fact, our emotions are closely tied to the law of attraction. Those emotions create the energy that we send out and ultimately receive back. When you’re thinking about what you want, feel the feelings you’ll feel when it comes to fruition.
Use your senses to describe how it will feel when you slide into that brand new car that you want. What will the seats feel like, how will the steering wheel feel when you wrap your hands around it, what will the car smell like, and how will you feel as you put the key in the ignition and realize the car is completely paid for and totally yours? That experience of emotions is what makes manifestation so powerful.
You need to have a focus. If you want something in your life, you have to see it in your life already. You may not know how it will happen, but I guarantee that the universe-God will unfold the steps to get there.
I once heard the saying that the universe works at the speed that you do, but takes abundantly bigger steps. If you want something, but instead of taking action to get there, you focus on something else, you will stay where you are. One of your steps may equal a dozen of the universe’s steps, but if you’re inactive, guess what? The universe will be too.
Once you begin to take action, you absolutely will get there.
Here’s the tricky part. Our brains are wired to believe concrete proof, but manifestation relies on our ability to wholeheartedly believe that things will come to pass even if we’re not sure how.
Once you believe that it is yours, you will find your way to it. While you need to support your desires and go towards your goal, you need to believe that it is already yours.
Give up the control of making it happen right now.
One of the most important things about the Law of Attractions is that it doesn’t understand the negative. You can’t focus on: “I don’t want debt.” Because guess what? You’re thinking about the crushing weight of your debt instead of the joy of a zero balance. With the law of attraction, frame your thoughts in the positive – in this case, “I have a zero balance on all of my credit cards.”
What is Manifestation in Daily Life?
Manifestation has been called many things over the years, but it can be seen in the works of some of the greatest leaders in business, the arts, and politics. It doesn’t have to be grandiose things. It can be manifesting a parking spot close to the door (my mother in law calls this her “God spot” and sure enough, she always gets the first or second spot in front of the store – every. single. time.) or it could be manifesting the money to purchase the package of school pictures. The universe is just itching to bless you abundantly – open your mind, let go of doubt, and just see where it takes you.
