What is Manifestation?
Let's start off with the basics! What exactly is manifestation? Manifestation is the ability to create your own reality through setting intentions, believing in yourself and the power of the universe.
Anything you dream, you can achieve! You can manifest situations, people and a variety of things from money to love, success, and good health. Manifestation uses the Law of Attraction to attract the things in life you desire.
How to Manifest your Goals
With the Law of Attraction, you can manifest the life you want. Like attracts like. If you are feeling happy, grateful, loving, and abundant then you are sending out positive energy.
If you are feeling stressed, angry, sad, or anxious then you are sending out negative energy. The Universe responds to both of these vibrations so which ones would you rather send out and attract? When you understand how the Law of Attraction works, you can begin to use it to create a better life for yourself. Choose to respond differently to situations. Choose to think differently. Choose to think about all of the things you want in your life and the dreams you want to achieve. Choose to do more of the things you love.
There are 3 steps to the Law of Attraction. Let's take a look at them...
#1 Ask the Universe
The first thing you need to do is to ask the Universe for what you want. Make your requests to the Universe as specific as possible. Doing this will give you the most accurate and amazing results.
As you're speaking of these desires, practice feeling the emotions you'll have when the Universe works its magic. The more you talk about, focus, and feel your intentions, the sooner you'll get to manifesting your dreams and goals.
When manifesting the life you want, speak and feel as though you already have it. Although it's easier said than done sometimes, it's important to maintain a positive mindset.
You must change your thoughts into believing that you are worthy, lovable, capable, and deserving of good things. This may take some time to practice but once you have the belief, you'll receive an abundance of good from the universe.
#3 Receive and Take Inspired Action
Once you believe this in yourself and trust that the universe has your back, it's time to take action. Taking inspired action is a good way of meeting the universe halfway by taking steps towards making your dreams come true. You can't expect to win the lottery if you don't buy a ticket!
If you're new to manifestation, manifesting something small like seeing a white feather is a good place to start. The feather could appear when you go out for a walk or you could be scrolling Instagram and see a picture of a big white feather. One thing to note is to be patient, the universe will deliver!
How Does it Work?
Manifestation isn't going to work if you're doubting that the universe will deliver. You need to believe in the magic for the magic to happen!
When saying positive affirmations daily, expressing gratitude and putting your dreams and desires out there, your mindset starts to shift and you start to feel more positive. When you feel excited and positive, you'll attract and notice all of the good things that happen.
Believing, focusing and visualising your dreams opens you up to receiving and recognising opportunities. Like attracts like and the universe reacts to your positive vibes and gives you these amazing opportunities as you are open to receiving them.
There are lots of fun and creative things you can use to help you manifest your desires. It isn't necessary to use all of these tools - you can use just one tool that works for you or you can use a combination of these methods. Always follow what works best for you. It should feel like a nice addition to your lifestyle, not a chore! These are just some manifestation tools you can use...
Visualisation is basically daydreaming. To be specific, it's the ability to imagine everything in your reality coming true. Create a mental imagine in your mind of how you want your dream life to be. The stronger your visualisations are, the more real it will feel which will make it easier to manifest. Visualise the colours you see, the sounds you hear, the fragrances you can smell, and how you feel.
If you struggle to visualise, perhaps scripting would be better for you. It's very similar but instead of imagining, you're writing your manifestations down on paper. Scripting involves writing down your dreams and desires in detail as if they have already happened.
Grab your manifestation diary and start writing your dreams. Make sure to write in the present tense as you're writing as if the universe has already granted your wishes. When writing, make sure to be very clear and specific. Write down how you feel to have reached your goal and don't forget to express gratitude.
Crystals are one of the top tools for manifestation. All crystals vibrate at a different energy and each one has unique properties that can help you manifest a variety of things. For example use Rose Quartz to manifest love, use Citrine to manifest abundance, use Amethyst to manifest spiritual experiences, and Carnelian to manifest creativity.
Once you have chosen and cleansed your crystal, it's time to program it with your intention. Hold the crystal in your hands, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and visualise your manifestation. Now, set your intention. For example, "I program this crystal to attract new opportunities that lead to success, wealth and abundance".
Keep your crystal nearby, in your pocket or place it on top of your journal to benefit from the crystal's energy. Another way to manifest with crystals is by creating a crystal grid. The combination of the sacred geometry, energy from the crystals and your intentions makes your manifestations much stronger.

A vision board is a fun and creative way to manifest. It's a collage of visual images and words that represent the dream life you want to live. You can create a digital vision board online or buy yourself a pin board and search for images in magazines or print images off that relate to the reality you want to live. Display your vision board where you can see it often so you can engage with it every day to remind you of your goals.
Using positive affirmations daily is a great way to manifest your dreams. Every now and then, repeat your affirmations aloud or say them in your head. Doing this often will in time teach your subconscious mind that this is what you should be focusing on. Here are a few positive affirmations you can use. Feel free to use your own or change them to suit what you desire!
I have the power to create the life I desire.
Everything I need and desire flows to me freely.
I am blessed with great health, happiness and joy daily.
Money is an unlimited resource and it is always flowing my way.
The universe always opens new doors for me.
I am a money magnet.
Meditation teaches us to be more aware and have a healthy sense of perspective. Many people choose to meditate as it enhances overall health and well-being. As meditation encourages a heightened state of awareness and focused attention, it's a good tool for manifestation.
Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and focus on each deep breath you take. Once you start to feel relax, bring your focus to your affirmations or visualise yourself achieving your goals. You can do this as often as you need to.
If you're struggling to believe in manifestation or find yourself with a negative mindset, it's time to start journaling. Write down your doubts, fears and unhelpful thoughts, rip the page out and throw it away so you can release the negativity and focus on your manifestation goal. Journaling is a great way to release the unhelpful thoughts that are getting in the way of you achieving your full potential.
Gratitude is a huge part of the manifestation process. If someone offered you an amazing opportunity, you would, of course, thank them! It's the same with the universe, you should thank the universe for delivering you amazing opportunities and abundance.
Begin your day by writing down or thinking about 3 - 5 things that you are grateful for. This will put you in a positive mood for the rest of the day. Express gratitude in the evening by writing down or thinking about 10 things that you were grateful for that day.
You can manifest anything and everything you want into your life from success to money, a relationship, friends, or your dream home. If you truly want to create your own reality, it's important to put the work in by meeting the universe halfway through taking inspired action and putting trust and belief in the universe that she will deliver.
Using one or a combination of manifestation tools can help you manifest more effectively. When you find out what works for you, it will naturally become a part of your routine. Your manifestations will not always manifest instantly so be sure to have patience. Always remember to express gratitude and exciting opportunities will come your way.
