Let's get right to it. Manifestation seems like this other worldly sort of magic. You see friends posting photos of vision boards or candle-lit ceremonies in order to "manifest" weight loss, love, or money, and you think "Nope. Nope. Nope. There is no way praying over a bunch of crystals or staring at a posterboard is gonna give me what I want!" (a totally natural response by the way) Well, guess what?! It might. But it's not the crystals or haphazard collage that give you the power. It's YOU!
Manifestation is kind of like intention or goal-setting but with more of a visualized, tangible, planned component. Here's how it works:
Have you heard the phrase, "where your focus goes, your energy flows."? The more you think about that new car, the more job listings you pay attention to, the more you advocate for a raise at your current job, the more cognizant you are of the money you are spending. And before you know it, you get a $3,000 raise at work, an easy second job for the evenings, and you're saving $200/month from eating in. You have that new car by the end of the year. No one handed you that car. A higher power didn't throw down a car from the heavens as soon as you thought "that Tesla looks nice". You made it happen because you stayed focused! "Manifest-er type folks" might say "opportunities unfolded for you". When actually the opportunities were there all along- you just found them because you opened your freaking eyes! Let's try it together:
Step 1: Recognize your desire. What is a change you'd like to make? What are you seeking? Are you trying to figure out a way to do what you love for a living? Are you seeking love? Money to buy a car? What do you want?
