I get it – there’s lots of conversations around manifesting, and it can seem overwhelming. Manifestation in is simplest form is you imagining something, and then creating your own reality based on that. Every single thing that we do in our lives is a form of manifestation.
No I know, but hear me out. If you want to learn how to start manifesting? The first step is realizing you manifest constantly!
Don’t overcomplicate it – you manifest all of the time! For example: Imagine you’re wanting to cook pasta for dinner tonight. You’ve imagined it, and you don’t even think twice about going to the grocery store, getting the ingredients, coming home and having pasta. You manifested it because you thought it first, and then you made it happen. Boom.
The decisions that we make and the things that happen to us make us all go on separate paths in our life. Different decisions can really change the course of our life. And so, manifesting is me aligning with my path in life so that the universe wants to give me all things good. Sounds great right?
Manifesting doesn’t have to be this magical, mystical thing where everything you’ve ever dreamed of appears out of thin air. But, it’s probably simpler than you expected it to be. Manifesting is you imagining the reality that you want and moving forward without a doubt in the world. Don’t hyperfocus on the how, take it one step at a time. You just know that it’s going to happen, and then you can start to put forth the same energy moving forward that you expect the Universe to.
You attract energy similar to your own, and the energy that you give off is the energy you’re going to attract. And the more positive your energy is, the more positive things are going to be attracted to you. You start manifesting magical things when you put out a positive, grateful energy.
So? A key part of how you start manifesting is your attitude. Think about it like this: If you decide in the beginning of the day that it’s going to be a bad day and your energy is really negative, then the rest of the day will probably go to hell. But? If you wake up and say positive mantras to yourself, ask the universe to give you all things good, know that you’re the luckiest human in the world, those are always the most incredible days! This is because you’re sending out the energy (and signals to your Reticular Activating System – helloooooo science) that you want to receive, and that’s what your brain + the Universe will focus on moving forward.
One of my favorite learning resources when it came to manifestation was a book called Manifest Now by Idil Ahmed. She has this quote I just love: “Your mental energy is an investment in what you want to receive back from the universe.”
She also explains how you start manifesting beautifully: “Look at this like placing an order on Amazon. You know that your order is going to arrive. You put in the order to the universe with your thoughts and emotions; trust that it is going to be delivered to you. You wouldn’t worry about how Amazon is going to make the delivery, or what kind of truck they will use to bring your package. You don’t even care how they bring it. You just know and trust that they will. This is the same way you can start to trust the universe. Put in your order with your mind and emotions. Feel it getting ready to happen for you. Feel it entering your life. Feel the delivery on the way. Get as excited as if you were expecting a big delivery.”
We can break it down like this: manifesting is a form of gratitude. When I’m telling the universe I’m ready for all the beauty she has to give me today, I already feel so grateful because I think about all the good days she’s already given me. So when you start manifesting, make sure to practice gratitude.
One of the BEST things about manifesting is that it’s also really empowering. When I manifest things and they happen and I reach my goals, I feel empowered to set more goals and work harder to reach them! I trust myself (and the Universe) to bring forth the things I need and want.
