WTF is all of this manifestation talk? Can we really attract anything we want? It sounds woo, complicated, and maybe involves witchcraft? Hold on. As someone who first became curious about all things law of attraction at the age of 16 (before it was “a thing“), I’ve become pretty awesome at it. It’s really just basic energetics, and based off the principle of energy flows where attention goes.
I’m here to simplify and detangle the nuances like a hairbrush running through baby hair. Hang on, we got this. I’m here to help you demystify manifestation and help you attract anything you want.
In short, we are all vibrational beings. We all came from the same source energy and now are interacting as fragmented, energetic beings. Objects have energy, plants have energy, and of course, we have energy. Once you know how to use it to your advantage, you can attract in anything you want.
Ever catch a weird vibe you can’t explain or walk into a room and want to leave for whatever reason? You’re feeling energy that your analytical mind might not comprehend. Remember that time you went to that place just because it felt good and met your new best friend? That’s trusting a “ping”, intuitive guidance from the universe that led you to your desire. Let’s go through this together.
1. Set an intention = clarity is KEY.
Start with something small to begin building your trust muscle. What is a little win that could make your life just a smidgen better? While we know we can attract anything, we should start tiny if we’re new at this. Maybe it’s a pair of earrings, a plant, or a water filter (I’ve manifested both a Vitamix for $100 and a free Brita, anything is possible!)
Make your list. Write it down with pen and ink. It has more power this way. Pick something that you can see happening within a week or two and begin with small things that you don’t have a lot of resistance around. Something that feels so easy to obtain, and maybe you only kind of want it. This is how we start seeing to believe.
Be clear and specific, if you don’t know exactly what you want, highlight HOW you want to feel. Manifestation often comes in suprising ways that we could have never imagined the specifics of. Perhaps you want to talk about how you want to FEEL when you attract your dream apartment. Rather than listing things like “granite, new floors, big bathroom” maybe you put “feels open and spacious, luxurious, and airy”.
There have been many times when I’ve manifested my list and forgot to include how I wanted to feel, which is the of course, most important thing. Oftentimes we think the thing will make us happy, however, we desire things because we believe we will feel a certain way when acquiring them. Don’t forget that!
2. Let it go… completely!
Let it go, let it gooooo! Forget about it. And then trust that it’s on it’s way. It won’t be hard if it’s something you don’t have many feelings about. If it’s something like your dream partner but you have a ton of limiting beliefs around it, that’s way too big of a feat for an instant manifestation. We’re picking something that’s believable to manifest in a week or two. Write down a deadline that feels believable, and get on with your life.
A key element here is listening to your intuition, and following little nudges during your day. You may suddenly feel an urge to walk into a store for no apparent reason, begin talking to the fella next to you, or ride your bike an alternative route. Don’t question it. I manifested my sterling silver ring being polished by finding myself in a random store after a run, striking up conversation with the owner about geology.
You have to get good at trusting your gut.
3. The more you want it, the slower it will come.
Little desire with no resistance > Strong desire with a lot of resistance
Trust me. The more you care, the more feelings you hold around its absence. That’s why it’s so tricky to manifest really important things like money when you need it most. If you’re broke and struggling to pay rent, it’s much trickier to visualize yourself in your luxury home living abundantly because there’s such a gap between where you are and where you want to be.
It is however, entirely possible. And it gets easier as you build momentum and realize, WOW! It’s all just energy. We attract what we’re vibrating at. And the more we up-level energetically through meditation and raising our vibration, the more we can manifest. Money is simply energy, and once we understand how to attract it – it’s one of the easiest things to call in.
To speed things up, raise your vibration by seizing thought. Incorporate this into your daily practice to make it a habit.
4. Seeing is believing, unblock those limitations!
Your subconscious needs to see that whatever you want is possible before you have it. That’s why the majority of the greatest artists, business owners, and the most influential people saw themselves where they wanted to be before reaching their level of success.
You need to seek out people who have manifested what you want, or are living the lifestyle that you are in pursuit of. Ask them questions if they are available to you. Once you figure out their “secret sauce” which is often a moment of “oh my, I can do that too!” — then you’ll have unblocked a limiting belief of how it is not possible for you. Remember, absolutely anything is possible.
The clearer you are about your WHY, the quicker you will attract in the how. We don’t need to know the how, we just need to know the WHAT and the WHY. For example, I know I wanted to create and help others live their dream lifestyles. I knew I wanted to travel, take photographs, and express myself creatively through digital media.
This was years ago. I was told this was not a job, and i’d never make money through living a nomadic lifestyle. I did it anyway, and as I went, I met other people who were doing the same thing that I wanted to be doing.
Through conversation and picking the brains of those I most admired, I realized I was no different. The desire and belief gradually merged into reality. I still have days where I pinch myself when I look back on how far I’ve come. You can read more about my story here.
And the days I feel unsure, I still trust that everything is working out for me no matter what. Because it always has, and always will.
And finally, start with a rubber duck if your skeptical
Start with a rubber duck. I’m not kidding. You probably have zero care or concern about finding a rubber duck, and that’s exactly why it’s the perfect thing to begin manifesting. This youtube video walks you through it. It’s silly, but a good way to test out this manifestation stuff for yourself. I visualized multiple ducks with HUGE duck lips. In two days, walking down the street, I saw this:
