You may have heard the words manifestation and Law of Attraction get thrown around a bunch lately and for good reason. People are discovering their own power and choosing to become deliberate creators of their own reality.
Sounds pretty juicy doesn't it? Well it is.
Since what we are really discussing here is energy and quantum physics I'm going to simplify everything and break it down so that even a third grader would understand.
The basic premise of manifesting is that your thoughts create your physical reality. Whatever you focus on (consciously or subconsciously) is what is going to show up in your life experience. That's right. You are the creator of your own reality.
The Law of Attraction is a Universal law that states that like attracts like. Meaning like energy attracts things of like energy to itself.
The coolest part is that you can use the Law of Attraction to manifest anything you want (or don't want if you're not careful)! The easiest way to do this is to use your imagination and to live in the wish fulfilled.
How to Manifest Anything Your Heart Desires
Step 1. Ask and focus
Define what you want, and focus on what it would feel like to already have it. Live in the wish fulfilled. tweet it
First, you have to really get clear about what you do want and then focus wholeheartedly on that. Usually this happens after experiencing something unwanted. It's funny how contrast in life makes these things so very clear to us.
Example: When you feel poor is when you decide you want more money. In this case you would then have to focus on what it would feel like to have more money in order to manifest it.
Be careful that you're not secretly obsessing over the fact that you don't have enough money right now. You cannot manifest new things if you keep focusing on the present circumstance. Just put the present moment aside and imagine what it feels like when the wish is already fulfilled.
An exercise that helps me to manifest things is to write down exactly what it feels like in my journal. "I feel secure. I feel happy. I feel fulfilled. I feel loved. I feel safe. I feel rich..." Take yourself there with your imagination. This really helps me capture the emotion of what I'm looking to manifest. I do this when I'm feeling hopeful, optimistic or inspired. It is very important to only manifest when you are in a good space emotionally.
Step 2. The Universe responds
The Universe always (and I mean always) says YES to everything you think and feel. tweet it
You don’t have to do anything here. Just sit back, relax and trust that the Universe is working on your order. Know and expect that your manifestation is on its way to you. If you can think of it, you can manifest it. The Universe wouldn't plant an idea or inspiration in your head that it could not achieve for you. That would just be plain rude!
Step 3. Match and Receive
Match your vibrational frequency to that of what you are asking for and then be open to receiving it. tweet it
To match your vibrational frequency to that of what you are asking for change your thoughts in order to change your mood. Your mood is a direct indicator of the vibration you are sending out to the Universe at all times. If you are feeling any sort of "negative" emotion that stems from fear (like anger, lack, frustration, sadness...) you are sending out a very low vibrational frequency. If you are feeling any sort of "positive" emotion that stems from love (like happiness, abundance, optimism, gratitude, hopefulness...) then you are sending out a very high vibrational frequency.
Chances are you are trying to manifest something that you think is going to make you feel better in some way (aka more high vibrational), so raise your vibration first and then you can attract it into your experience second.
Everyone is doing it backwards. People are responding to their pre-existing environment which is keeping them in the same feeling, in the same situations, with the same stuff forever! You must find and hold on to the new desired feeling first and then the manifestation can occur because like energy attracts like energy. Your energy has to match that of what you are asking for in order for it to come anywhere near you.
If you feel grateful you will attract more experiences that make you feel grateful. If you feel frustrated you will attract more experiences that make you feel frustrated. If you feel abundant you will attract more experiences that make you feel abundant. And so on...
Remember, the Universe always says YES. If you feel poor the universe will say, "Ok. Yes ______ (insert name here). You are poor. I agree with you. Here are some more experiences to make you feel poor." If you feel abundant the universe will say "Ok. Yes ______ (insert name here). You are abundant. Here are some more experiences to make you feel abundant." Which would you rather have?
Lastly, (this is the hardest step for most people and the reason why many fail) you have to be in a place of nonresistance in order to receive your manifestation. You have to be in your natural state of wellbeing. You must set aside all negative beliefs and just allow yourself to feel good. For once in your life, allow yourself to just feel good! You are worthy of everything and anything worth having. Stop getting in your own way!
The easiest way to step into a place of nonresistance, hands down, is to mediate, but there are also other ways. I can find my place of nonresistance when I'm dancing or doing yoga, or doing hair... Any passion where thought stops, time slows down, and you are in the "flow" will help you get into a state of nonresistance. When you stop thought you are open and connected to the Universe. This is when you can receive.
So really, all you have to do in order to manifest all the goodies that life has to offer is just follow your bliss as much of the time as possible. Always reach for the best feeling thought at any given moment so that you can constantly raise your vibration.
Check in with yourself, "Which thought feels best? Which person feels best? What choice feels best? What song feels best? What food feels best? What book feels best? Which place feels best?"
When you are feeling good and vibrating at a high frequency you will inevitably, as a consequence of the Law of Attraction, attract more good feeling things and experiences into your life. It's the law.
