Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, the truth is we’re all powerful manifestation machines! The problem is that so many of us are wasting energy focusing on everything that could go wrong or replaying negative experiences that happened in the past over and over again in our mind. Manifestation isn’t a magic wand. It’s an interactive experience and a state of mind that takes practice and requires consistency.
In the same way that Olympic athletes aren’t made overnight, becoming a master of manifestation takes work. The law of attraction asks you to dig deep, identify your true desires, confront limiting beliefs, practice visualization, let go of resistance and stay grateful! Manifestation isn’t a spiritual belief or something reserved for “enlightened” people, either. It’s an exercise for your subconscious. To re-invoke the athlete analogy: You don’t get a six pack by laying on the couch all day.
According to manifestation master Abraham Hicks, “You never get it done, and you cannot get it wrong. Life is supposed to be fun: You are creator, you are a focusing mechanism, and you are here in an environment that is very conducive to that. When you get hold of an idea, play it out for the pleasure in it. If you are doing it for any other reason, then you are not connecting to your Source Energy.”
Here are five consciousness-healthy habits you can easily incorporate into your daily life to get the power of manifestation working for you!
1.) Know What You Desire
The first step in mastering manifestation is knowing what you want. While this might sound obvious, the truth is many of us haven’t spent that much time getting really clear about what it is we really desire. It’s also easy to be influenced by what the media, your family or friends think you should want. Desires are deeply personal, and the key to manifesting is to get specific.
Hoping to manifest a new home? A vacation? A spouse? In order for manifestation to really work, spend some time thinking about the details. Where is your dream home located? Does it have a view? How many bedrooms? What’s the price? In the case of partners, don’t just wish for any love. Think about the qualities you want in a partner and write them down. The devil – or your desire in this case – is in the details.
If you don’t know what you want, it’s hard to follow through and take the steps to make it actually happen. Not knowing what you truly desire also makes it hard to recognize when it’s staring you right in the face. Start by making a list of your heart’s deepest desires and write down the details. Don’t limit yourself, either! The imagination has no bounds … and neither does the universe!
