Most people have now come across the term, manifesting, whether it be through social media, family, or friends. The concept of manifestation has been becoming more and more popular over the years. It’s a simple idea that resonates with the Law of Attraction. The idea is that positive or negative thoughts will bring positive or negative experiences into your life, essentially, thoughts can become realities.
The truth is, we are always manifesting. When we bring attention and intention into our life, that’s manifesting. When you give out positive energy, positivity will come back to you. Same goes for when you give out negative energy, you will receive negativity. The concept can be both amazing and a little scary. Manifesting is basically just humans putting energy into their thoughts, which begs the question, “If I do that everyday, why don’t I have all that I want?” Manifestation is a simple process, but depending on the ask, not a quick one.
Through manifesting, words and thoughts can have the power to become more. If you can envision and will it to life, there is a possibility that it will happen. When manifesting, it’s always crucial to have a clear intention. There are so many different ways to manifest, all that work differently for every individual.
Many people use techniques, attracting whatever they would like into their lives, however the key is, you have to think about it the right way. Many people think of it as a wish, like “I wish I had a brand new car in my life”. Instead, change your thoughts to, “I am so grateful that I have a new car in my life”. As silly as it sounds, the universe believes you have already obtained this item, and therefore it will consequently lead you to it.
Manifesting is always about the future and looking forward in life, but it’s always important, in both manifestation and real life, to be grateful. Being grateful for your life, what you have and what’s showing up releases positive energy into the universe. By physically reflecting on what you have that is positive or negative, you can work out what you’d like in the future. One simple way to do this is by creating a vision board. Vision boards are a popular way of manifesting. Creating a board of images, words, quotes, or whatever you wish for is a way of manifesting and welcoming into your life the hopes and dreams you want to accomplish.
Another technique that you may have heard of is the 3, 6, 9 method. While not nearly as fun and entertaining as the vision boards, the method still works just as well. The idea is that you write down your desire in a particular sequence; 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times at night. Others use the method by writing out the focus three times, the intention six times, and the action nine times.
The biggest thing about manifestation is patience. Nothing will happen overnight, and nothing will happen by not being proactive. You can’t just sit back and expect everything to come to you. You have to work for it, strive for it, and put in the effort. Manifestation isn’t like a genie in a bottle, you have to work for what you wish, and manifestation gives you the opportunity at what you wish. It opens doors for you and gives you chances you may have never thought to have.
Manifestation isn’t for everybody. You may think it’s completely insane to believe in this, but that doesn’t matter. Call it the power of positive thinking or simply coincidence, it’s not hurting anyone so why not try it? You never know what could happen, so what’s the harm in giving it a try? You have nothing to lose, but lots to possibly gain. It’s all up to you.
