“You get there by realizing you are already there.”– Eckhart Tolle
Today, we’re going to talk about how to bring all of this together in a way with which we can begin utilizing our inherent power to manifest our goals.
To begin with, we have to truly understand that we are always in a process of manifestation. Each thought sent out coupled with our emotions, beliefs, and actions are constantly being reflected back to us as the reality we find ourselves existing within. Like attracts like. This is the basis of manifesting.
The Manifestation Process
We have to first get clear about what kind of thoughts, feelings, and beliefs we’re holding as well as sending out into the Universe by way of our actions.
- Are they supportive or are they unsupportive?
- Are they positive and high vibe or are they negative and low vibe?
- Are they in alignment with what we desire to achieve or experience now or are they based on fears/the past?
It’s important to become aware of how and what we’re setting ourselves up to receive. Ideally, in order to truly manifest what we want, we have to be sure that our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are supportive, positive, and in alignment with our hopes and dreams. If not, we are only going to stay in a space of manifesting the things we don’t wish to have or experience. For example, if you find your thoughts are based more on fears, you’re going to continue to attract that which solidifies that fear. If you’re scared that you’ll never make a sale, that fear is going to sabotage your ability to make a sale, ultimately manifesting a reality in which you – you guessed it – don’t make a sale. On the other hand, if you believe that you are ready and able to make a sale, that confidence and self-assuredness is going to bleed into the way you show up and will actually create space for you to achieve the goal of making the sale. This goes for anything and everything – could be a loving relationship, becoming more fit and healthy, or a more fulfilling job. Whatever it is, we must stay mindful and intentional in the way we show up in our energy in the world.
One of the best ways to get clear about any limiting thoughts and beliefs that may be hindering us is to sit down and get quiet. Think about your goal and write down any and all thoughts that come into your head. Also consider any things you actually do that may be holding you back from achieving this. Write it all. When you feel that there is nothing else to be written, take a second and look over the list. How many of the things you wrote down are unsupportive? How many are negative? How many are based on the past or fears? Sit with those for a second. See if you can reframe them into a positive instead. Instead of “I’m too lazy and broke to go to the gym,” switch it to “I can workout at home in my own space for free.” I’m sure you get the idea!
Not only do we need to clear our mental space, we also need to clear and ground our actual energetic space in order to make room for our energy to become focused and intentional, as well as shift into a receiving mode, in our manifestation process. Find what works for you and do it! Get centered in whatever way feels best. The purpose of this is to release any stagnant energy that may be blocking your ability to manifest, anything that may still be tied to those limiting thoughts/fears that we talked about above, as well as solidify us within our body so that we may step more fully into our energetic power. It also opens space for us to become receivers of the Universal energy that is constantly at our fingertips, harnessing it in a way that serves us and others positively and productively.
Now, get a new piece of paper. Write down your goal at the top. List all of the things about the goal that gets you excited, passionate, motivated, and curious. The purpose of this is to create a crystal clear intention of what you want to call into your experience. What makes you happy about this goal? What do you want to experience? How do you want to feel? The feeling is probably the number one facet of manifestation. Lists and vision boards can only do so much, but truly feeling the goal as real is really what begins to solidify it in your mind and energetic body. Clarify your intentions and begin to envision the reality of actually having or achieving your goal.
With anything, we also need to have action steps. We must be actively moving in a direction in which our goals can fall into place. What action steps do you need to take in relation to your goal? Figure them out and commit to crossing them off in a specific, yet realistic, timeframe. The awesome thing about this process is that when we take the time to clear and reframe any limiting energetic debris (in the form of negative and unsupportive thoughts, feelings, and beliefs), is we open up a ton of space for actually creating the reality we desire. No longer are we spending time worrying, being fearful, or making excuses. We’re able to harness and focus our energy in a positive and productive way, intentionally and energetically aligning with our goals.
Remember the feeling from earlier? The next step is to sit with that feeling each and every day. It may help you to create a vision board or a notecard with a personal affirmation written on it so that you have a physical reminder to spend some time getting into a space in which this goal has already manifested itself. A reminder on your phone may even work, or a picture as your background that reminds you of your goal. Whatever it is, is perfect. Hold your intention, your goal, in your heart. Feel fully the joy, the truth, the excitement, the fulfillment it gives you as though you already have it. Let the feeling take over your body and feel the energy of this goal made manifest. You may even want to visualize yourself as a giant magnet, pulling towards you your goal. Imagination is a powerful thing. The more we visualize our goals as reality, the stronger our ability to believe it is coming – and it is! It’s already here.
Speak with loving and positive intention. One of the best things you can do to ensure you’re in a space of energetic alignment is consistently practice affirming yourself and your ability to manifest your goal. What better way to do this than by utilizing the power of affirmations? Here’s a few you may like to use, or feel free to create your own:
- I am manifesting my wildest dreams.
- Whatever I can conceive, I believe.
- Miracles manifest every day in every way.
- I welcome success.
- My life is filled with abundance.
- I have the power to create the life I dream of.
- My success is for certain.
- All I need is within me now.
- I am a manifesting magnet.
- I believe in my power.
- All I desire is on its way to me now.
Pay attention. In the coming days, weeks, or months, there will no doubt be signs and synchronicities that take place which serve as proof that the Universe has heard your intention and your goal is making it’s way to you. It could be an intuitive hit, someone offering you an opportunity that could move you towards your goal, or symbols along the way that the Universe may be giving you as a message of what is to come. The more we pay attention to these signs, the more will make their way into our experience, adding to our confidence and trust in our ability to manifest exactly what it is we wish.
Lastly, let go and trust. When our belief is strong and we’re moving towards our goals with supportive energy, positive intentions, and productive action steps, we can let go a bit, fully trusting and having faith that we are manifesting exactly what we want and that it is on its way to us right at this moment. It’s important to note here that the Universe does plan much better for us than we could ever. We have to remember that though our intentions may be clear, we cannot control the timing or form in which they manifest themselves. Whatever way it happens is perfect. Take time to simply be here now in a state of open receptivity, envisioning your goal, trusting the process and knowing that the Universe does in fact have your back.
Side note: If you look back through each aspect of this process, you can see how each step relates to a specific chakra. The first, getting clear about the foundation of our thinking/feeling/believing as well as how we energetically show up, is connected to our Root. The second, creating a crystal clear intention with total passion and pleasure, is connected to our Sacral. The third, utilizing our power and creating action steps, is connected to our Solar Plexus. The fourth, sitting with the feeling fully, is connected to our Heart. The fifth, communicating positively, is connected to the Throat. The sixth, paying attention to the signs and synchronicities, is connected to the Third Eye. And the seventh, letting go and trusting, is connected to the Crown. In this way, we can see how each energy center has it’s own purpose within the manifestation process. Interesting, right? 🙂
So there you have it!
It may seem a bit basic, but it’s incredibly powerful.
Know that you have the ability to absolutely manifest anything and everything you desire. You are constantly co-creating your reality with the help of the Universe and the ever-constant flow of energy. All you have to do is clear space, get clear, envision, feel, and speak it, and allow it the space and time to realize itself.
I have manifested a ton of wonderful things/people/experiences with the help of this process and it still seems SO magical every time. In the future I plan to share how to use various tools and techniques to aid in the process, including crystals, creativity, visualization, mantras, and the lunar cycle – my favorite and most looked-to ally in my own personal manifestation process!
