What Is Manifesting? And How To Use It To Attract Your Dreams!

What is manifesting? How do you manifest what you want? Well, you’re manifesting something right now, whether you mean to or not. We are sending out and receiving vibrational energy all the time and these vibes are based on our thoughts and feelings. It’s these vibrations that attract what we ‘manifest’.

Maybe you’ve tried manifesting something- you visualized it and even wrote it down. But then… nothing happened. So you wonder- is manifesting even real? How do I start manifesting? And why does it work for some people and not others?

You are at the right place! In this post, we’ll explain what all about what manifesting is and how to use it to get what you want! We’ll cover expert tips and techniques used to manifest anything you want! You can manifest good grades or manifest someone like a boyfriend!

The Truth About Manifesting

The truth is you don’t manifest what you visualize. You manifest through your energy.

How to know your manifestation is coming

You attract how you feel and what you attract doesn’t always come in the superficial form. It comes in the form of motivation, intuition, opportunities and ideas! That is what manifesting really is.

Many people think manifestation doesn’t work, because they’ve tried to manifest a great body and the perfect spouse. When that doesn’t appear, they get frustrated and disappointed, which attracts more of those exact emotions. Meanwhile, they missed the opportunities, motivation and ideas that could have helped them find the perfect spouse and get a healthier body!

With manifestation, you can have everything you desire, from love to success, and yes you can even manifest money. But you have to be willing to work for what you manifest!

Need a little help manifesting? Journaling is a VERY powerful tool in getting what you want because when you use your imagination and get your creativity flowing, you feel good and you attract GOOD! I believe in using a method called Scripting for the Law of Attraction. In fact, I just launched a new manifestation journal! You can check it out below:

What Happens When You Manifest Something?

Does manifestation always work? Yes and no! It works when you do it right, and it’s definitely not magic. It’s actually science!

Have you tried manifesting what you want, only to be left disappointed?

You can’t just visualize a perfect body, weight loss, being rich or your dream job, and expect it to happen. Manifesting doesn’t work like that. But you can manifest ideas, motivation and opportunities for a better body or your dream job! The reason why manifestation fails many of us, isn’t because it doesn’t work. It’s because we ignore those signs- the ideas, motivation and opportunities. We get so busy, that we don’t notice them and instead we think manifestation isn’t working because I don’t have the perfect body or my dream job.

Take time to notice these signs and then take action! Setting intentions is one way to manifest success in your life!

Manifesting Is All About Your Vibrational Energy

Many of us also believe that if we think of the perfect spouse or your dream car, that you’ll get what you want. But, when it comes to manifesting- you get what you give. Your vibrations, good or bad, will attract the same vibrations back! So those with a high vibe, will attract a high vibe life with opportunities that will lead to a perfect spouse and your dream car!

That’s why raising your vibration is so important when manifesting. Because you get back the same energy you put out. And with your energy comes everything else! Everything in the world is made up of energy. We want good energy only!

Try reading affirmations for manifesting, making a manifestation board, a manifestation list or starting a manifestation journal. These are some of the most powerful manifestation techniques.

Woman manifesting money and abundance

Another reason manifesting fails is because you have doubts. If you’re trying to manifest a million dollars next month, you are probably really doubting that’ll actually happen. Or if you’re trying to manifest your dream job, but aren’t even actively working for it, you doubt you’ll get it and so does the universe! You need to believe it, in order for the universe to believe it.

Set smaller, realistic goals that you have faith in. And once you see these goals manifesting, you’ll gain more confidence in yourself and the power you have! Then you can go bigger!

How Do You Manifest What You Want?

The secret to learning how to manifest what you want us to connect with the universe.

I think of the universe as my best friend. I wake up every morning and meditate, even just for 5 minutes, to connect with the universe. I know it sounds like I’m some hippy chick, but I’m telling you the universe is alive and can do some pretty awesome things in your life once you let her (or maybe it’s him?) in. You can feel the energy, see the signs and really manifest anything you want!

Meditation helps you connect with the universe. Sit up straight with your legs crossed and your open palms on your knees. This means you’re open to the universe! Then just relax, close your eyes and think about what you want. It can be anything- long term or for today! What inspires you? What desires do you have? Breath deeply and enjoy the images that come to mind!

Change Your Thoughts To Manifest What You Want

I learned a lot about manifesting from spiritual leader Gabrielle Bernstein. My favourite books that changed my life were written by her- The Universe Has Your Back and Super Attractor.

How do you manifest what you want? By creating what you want using your thoughts and beliefs. How is this even possible, though? First, it helps to understand how our thoughts and ideas influence you. When you believe or value something, it changes how you see the world, how you perceive others, and how open you are to receiving opportunities and possibilities the world may have to offer.

Your world is shaped by your thoughts. The universe feels your vibes and offers opportunities to those who are open.

A Quick Video Of How To Manifest:

For example, let’s say you need a new car. You think about how much you can afford, what you really want in terms of options, and what color your dream car would be. Suddenly, everywhere you turn, you see, hear about, and become aware of vehicles just like the one you want. You will hear about friends selling cars, deals people received on their new cars, and other messages that help you find what you are looking for. The world is guiding you to your new vehicle, and it is led there by your own desire to find a new car.

Change Your Mindset To Manifest

Everything you manifest in this world is filtered through your mindset. The dominant beliefs and values you have will determine if you see an experience as positive or negative, as a possibility or a problem, as something that can help you or something that just gets in your way. When you learn to harness these powers, through manifestation, you can focus your beliefs and thoughts to help bring about the opportunities that will get you where you want to be.

Your world is a reflection of you. It reflects your beliefs, actions, decisions, and energy. And, whatever you send out into the world will be reflected to you in new and sometimes unexpected ways. When you believe, for example, that you are worthy of love from someone who honors and respects you, you start expecting different things from potential partners and are willing to compromise less for your happiness.

Who you are affects how you act, which impacts what you achieve. Becoming the person you want to become means thinking, feeling, and acting like the person who has already achieved their dreams. This commitment helps you do what needs to be done to have the things you really want.

Want to manifest a job offer? If I act as if I have a job I love, I start making decisions that guide me to a dream position, and I soon have what I most want in the world, which is a better job.

Want to manifest someone to be obsessed with you? Act and live as if it’s already a reality!

Examples Of Manifestation

Manifestation is learning to transform your life by believing in yourself, creating the conditions that allow you to achieve, and being open to possibilities and opportunities that help you manifest your goals. When you do these things, the universe answers by sending back the things you need to achieve what you most desire. All you have to do is listen! The signs are there!

I remember very clearly, the day I really knew manifestation and law of attraction works. I knew the universe was there, listening. I was in the middle of some real life struggle, I mean the worst of it. I was trying to choose the right path, and started reading books about the law of attraction and how it works. I was changing my mindset, but old habits die hard.

One day I was so worried about everything happening in my life. I couldn’t focus on anything else, other than worry. I was driving, trying to clear my head, after a very tough day, and I was so worried I was nearly sick to my stomach when there it was. A sign from the universe… Literally, it was a stop sign with the words, worrying spray-painted under the word stop. It said STOP WORRYING! I was like holy smokes, this is real! And no joke, I felt relief and within days my life began to calm down. And after that, after I began to put more faith in the universe, my whole life began to change! I’ve never looked back!

And, that was just the beginning. I’ve manifested job opportunities, brand new vehicles and trips, but more importantly, I am happy and at peace!

Manifesting Is More Than Wishful Thinking

This process is not just wishful or positive thinking. It does require action. It means you must set clear goals for yourself, know what you want, remain focused on that, and transform beliefs that may be limiting your success.

When you embrace the power of manifestation, you can achieve powerful things and realize important, lifelong dreams. And you can connect with yourself in a deep and meaningful way.

But, when you do these things, you are consciously creating your life and choosing who you are becoming. You are influencing your decisions and options with your outlook and values.

Wrapping Up: What Is Manifesting?

The universe is alive, and there for you if you’d just listen!

So what is manifestation? I hope you have learned that yes manifesting is real and it does work! It’s a partnership, between you and the universe to create your life! How do you manifest what you want? You connect with the universe and focus on the power of your thoughts.

What is manifestation and how to use it to get what you want.

    1. I’ve been trying to manifest some and it’s working. It is not something big but it happens. Anyway, we need some hope.

      1. I’ve been manifesting small for a while because I’m so much more confident and in the process then. Manifesting bigger things are harder because we know they’re not as easy and therefore we have some doubts that we release through our vibrations. It’s tricky, but after you get comfortable and confident in the manifesting process, slowly go after a bit bigger things! But, also manifesting a bunch of small things can make a big difference in our lives over time as well so be grateful, always:)
