How to make your wishes come true
Does it manifest the new self-care? When thinking wellness, we can head straight for green smoothies, go for a run, and do an hour of yoga before work. But times are changing. Today, manifesting is just as much a part of a self-care and wellness routine for millions of people as their early morning peppermint tea. So what is it? And why are so many people now obsessed with the concept of manifestation?
What is Manifest?
Manifestation is all about the Law of Attraction. What you’ll probably hear about if you’re on Instagram or listen to any type of podcast; it’s a buzzword that gets a lot of attention. But the law of attraction or the concept of manifesting your desires is nothing new.
The Law of Attraction is basically the idea that you attract what you put out there. So your thoughts, feelings, and actions define your vibrational frequency, and that’s what draws things to you. In short, if your mindset is positive and focused on something becoming a reality, it will become attracted to you and you will achieve it. Therefore, manifestation is the practice of focusing on the things you want in life, forming your mindset on that, and then attracting them into your reality. Whether it’s a new car, a new job or a new direction in life.
10 tips for manifesting
Feel like manifesting is something you would like to add to your daily routine? But you don’t know where to start? Keep reading our top 10 tips to start manifesting your desires and sticking to them.
Make practicing gratitude a must
Start each day with a list of gratitude. Whichever way you want to do it, starting the day by thinking about everything you’re grateful for that day automatically puts your mind in positive thinking. Whether you write down everything you feel grateful for that morning or just pick your top 3 is up to you. But stick to it and make sure you start the day the same way every morning.
Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want
Remember that your thoughts are a powerful tool. We want to focus on positivity, so try to always adjust your thought patterns to what you want, rather than what you don’t want.
Work the most on negative thoughts
As with the above, your negative thoughts turn into negative feelings and this is what can affect and damage your day. Bring your negative thoughts to the forefront of your mind and make an intentional decision to change them whenever they appear. Notice more and more when you have negative thoughts and work to adjust them to a more positive angle. It will get easier and faster over time.
Notice the times when you blame elsewhere
Obviously, sometimes things happen that are not your “fault”. However, it is good practice to start noticing times when you blame others for things that have affected you. Instead, start taking responsibility and ownership for whatever affects you, and work on how you can put a positive spin on it — or change it altogether. When we stop blaming elsewhere, we become more self-aware and focus on our positive actions and mindset.
Become a yes person. In general, try to say “yes” to everything. Especially if you know you’re the kind of person who doesn’t answer by default. Even the simple practice and awareness of this will begin to open your eyes to potential opportunities that you may be missing throughout your daily life.
Create a vision board
Seeing your goals visually is another powerful tool. Take the time to create a vision board in any format containing your long term goals. Whether it’s a different house, a trip abroad, a career transition, a relationship or a family or even a handbag, add it to your vision board and be sure to look at your vision board every morning to remind yourself of what you are working towards. Look at your visual goals and imagine your life that already includes these things. It manifests them directly.
Engage in daily meditation
Even if it’s only 5 minutes a day, engaging in daily meditation will get you into the zone to focus on your thoughts that are manifesting each day. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just settle into a comfortable, calm position, close your eyes, and focus on your positive thoughts for the day with purpose and intention. You could potentially use affirmations here too.
Even if you think journaling isn’t for you, give it a try for a few weeks and see how it makes you feel. Journaling can be whatever you want it to be. It can be a dated journal or just a free flow of thoughts anytime and anywhere. The practice of letting your thoughts flow onto paper can be incredibly liberating and calming, allowing your mind to declutter and focus.
Keep a journal of ideas
In addition to journaling, have an idea journal handy at all times. Whether you’re trying to manifest a new career or a new business or even a relationship, whenever an idea comes to you to help you achieve your goal, write it down so you’ll never forget it. Then you can come back to your idea journal if you ever feel lost or stalled and you’ll have plenty of fresh ideas to try to get where you want to be.
You are here, reading advice on how to manifest. So you obviously want to give it a try if you haven’t already started. Don’t delay, start today. What’s the worst that can happen? The answer is literally nothing. Nothing bad can happen if you start implementing these really positive things in your daily life. But something magical and earth-shattering might just happen. Surely it is worth discovering?
Manifesting is a long-term notion. Don’t expect to be able to manifest a raise at work or a new relationship overnight. Manifestation requires long periods of focus and attention, a commitment to sticking to your vision, and the best possible mental space and attitude to guide you. You can also combine your manifestation work with a psychic reading to gain insight into your potential future. Could seeing the possibility of your future inspire you to make changes now?
