Manifesting doesn’t have to be hard. It’s actually quite simple! In this article, I’m going to give you my easiest practical tips for manifesting your desires.
Practical Tips for Manifesting
The goal of this article is to simplify manifesting your goals, dreams and desires as best I can.
Because it actually is really simple–we just have a compulsion to make it harder than it really is!
Whenever I find myself experiencing things I don’t want and have fallen out of deliberately creating my reality, I take a step back and reassess.
Most often, I’m either trying too hard or have let my monkey mind take back over. And my monkey mind always tells me getting back on the manifesting train is going to be hard, so I should save it for another day.
Don’t save it for another day.
And stop overcomplicating it. Manifesting is easy, simple, and can work quickly.
Do you want to consciously create your reality? Are there goals you’re wanting to manifest this year, month, week? Let’s make it easy.
1. Write down what you want
Get your mind clear. Think of three things you really want to bring into reality. I say three because it helps to keep your focus strong and your mind uncluttered.
What I like to do is get three notecards where I write down my goals or intentions on each card. This helps because it’s contained and it’s easy to look through the cards daily and quickly flash the image of your desire across your mind.
Whatever it is you want, write it out starting with “I am…”
If that throws you off too much, you could write “I am becoming…” or add the words “manifesting”
- I am/becoming financially abundant
- I am/becoming healthy and strong
- I am/becoming happy and free
- I am/becoming sexy and fit
- I am/becoming wealthy
- I am/becoming beautiful on the inside and out
- I am/becoming a mother/father
- I am manifesting living in a beautiful home
- I am so in love with my partner/manifesting a soulmate
- I am a successful graduate
2. How does it make you feel
After that, think about your intention. What feelings does it conjure up?
Freedom? Joy? Elation? Accomplishment? Passion? Happiness? Excitement?
Write these feelings down underneath your written intention.
This is so powerful because we’re never really going for our intentions–we’re going for the feelings they bring us.
For instance, if you just visualize having a fit body with zero emotion attached to it, nothing gets stirred up energy-wise. What does the idea of a fit body FEEL like to you?
It probably feels something like strength, vitality, and confidence. Your intention is the car you get into, and the feelings are the engine that turn the car on and make it move.
Without them you’re just sitting in a parked car.
Imagine how each intention will make you feel and let that feeling run through your body as you write it down.
3. Visualize general, happy scenarios
Let your mind play a little with this one. For each intention, think of a few fun scenarios in your head that feel light, playful and general.
When I was manifesting my new home, I was specific in some ways but stayed general overall. I wanted a home with land, surrounded by trees with a cozy fireplace and wood floors.
In my mind, I would lightly visualize driving through my driveway with trees on both sides. I kept thinking of what a retreat it would feel like, secluded from the world.
I didn’t get super specific about how it all had to look. You can do that if you want, but I have found that remaining general and focusing more on the feelings of my desires makes them not only happen faster, but far better than I could’ve imagined anyway.
When I was visualizing a job for my husband, I saw him dressing up for work and kissing me goodbye. I pictured myself shopping at Target freely and going out to eat whenever we wanted.
I stayed open about what his job was going to be and just pictured the results of our life once he had a good job.
What’s a general picture you can see from your intention manifesting? Just like you imagined how it’s going to make you feel–what’s a likely scenario that will take place in your daily life once this desire has manifested?
Once you’ve thought of a few scenarios, write them on the back of your notecard or under the feelings you previously wrote down.
4. Look over your cards once a day
Now that you have your cards created, keep them next to your bed, on your desk, or someplace that you’ll definitely see them every day.
What I’ve always done is look over my cards once a day. The intention statement flashes across my mind, I let myself dwell in the feelings the intention brings, and then I visualize the scenarios I have written down.
You only need to spend around five minutes doing this. Keep it fun and light.
5. Schedule in gratitude
I say schedule because so often our minds focus on the unfair and disappointing aspects of life every day instead of the beautiful, magical parts…especially when we aren’t used to feeling grateful on a regular basis.
Before I fall asleep is when I visualize what’s on my cards and then I always think of ten things from my day or life that I’m so very grateful for.
When I was at financial rock bottom, I started thinking of all I was grateful for every night before I fell asleep. Air conditioning, a warm bed, a fridge, a roof over my head; I had so much despite my situation and fears.
When you feel grateful for your life at least once a day, you will turbo boost your manifestations. You cannot attract happiness with feelings of not having enough. It can’t work.
You’ve got to feel the gratitude for everything you already have so that you can attract feeling grateful for even more.
To sum it up
In conclusion, visualize and feel gratitude every day. Keep it simple and uncomplicated–I promise you that you will begin seeing your life shift in a new direction.
