Manifestation is something that has aways intrigued me and something I’m always excited to learn more about.
We’ve all heard the phrase, “you can do anything you set your mind to.” It’s basically a cliche at this point, right? And we’re familiar with the law of attraction and the power of positivity. They’re fairly popular beliefs and easy to understand. Manifestation, to me, is the complex next level to all of that. It’s deeper and far more disciplined. It’s a practice and it’s work.
Whether or not you are tuned into this, the whole universe consists of energy. That’s where the simpler ideas come in. If you radiate positivity and gratitude, you naturally attract the like. That doesn’t mean your life is all sunshine and rainbows. But you may feel more light hearted, warmer and passionate. Whereas if you see things negatively constantly, of course more and more bad days will come, a “victim mindset” may take over, and you could find yourself in a very unhealthy, dark place.
Considering that same idea of energy flowing, I understand manifestation to be a way of mastering the energy around you to create the life you desire. Thinking of the life you desire is one thing. It starts to bring energy to it. Writing it down is another. It starts to bring more intention to it. Crystals can assist you with this process if you’re into that. Vision boards have also always worked for me. But then there’s the next step- and this may look a little different to everyone. But you should ask yourself- “Why do I want this?” Making sure your wants are aligned with your truest self and values is key. You can’t cheat energy. It may require you to face some blocks in your life, like if you’re letting fear, ego, etc, take the front seat. For example, Lacy Ann Philips, a manifestation advisor, says, “Your relationship with money directly mirrors your relationship with yourself. Money flows when you heal what holds you back.” That’s just one example but the concept applies to anything you want. “When we commit to going deep and working on ourselves, we become truly magnetic to the things we desire and deserve.”
Manifestation is such a big part of my path right now. I still have so much to learn about it, and so much work to do but I wanted to share what I’ve learned so far anyways! I hope you enjoyed reading!
