Manifestation is an interesting concept: Spiritual Manifestation is the theory that through regular meditation and positive, constructive thought, you can make your dreams and desires become reality.
This sounds promising, doesn’t it?
So you’re telling me, that if I sit down and wish upon a dream... it will happen?
You see, manifestation requires a little more work than that. It isn’t just about wishing and dreaming of something you really want, it requires a purposeful plan of action and then a whole lot of intentional work.
Intentional work is working with purpose and getting busy taking the right steps towards your goal. But, let’s go back to this whole notion of “wishing” for your dreams to come true. It isn’t just “wishing”, it’s visualizing this particular goal. Let’s say you are trying to manifest a whole new successful life for yourself. Manifestation requires you to get very specific with exactly what this life will look like. What car are you driving? What does your home look like? What are you wearing? What does your bank account look like? Until you narrow it down to specifics. It is common to write all of this down in a notebook that you can easily pull out every day.
It is important to have a specific time of the day dedicated to reading this notebook and then visualizing exactly what you wrote.
But, it isn’t enough to merely visualize, you also have to begin to take the appropriate steps towards this direction. Ask yourself, what can you do RIGHT NOW that will get you closer to your dream? Perhaps you’re manifesting a fit body where everything you wear looks and feels incredible. In this case, you would create a list similar to this one of the proper steps you should immediately begin to take in order to achieve this desired physique:
- Drink 8 cups of water a day
- Go for a 30 minute walk daily
- Eat a salad for lunch
- Only eat out once a week
After creating your list, it’s time to implement the steps along with your daily manifestation exercise where you visualize your goals and read your notebook. There is a famous speaker, Bob Proctor, who preaches manifestation. He states, “you must make your dream a priority in order for it to becomes your life”. Through manifestation, you are making your dream an important part of your everyday conscious thoughts.
I challenge you to think of something you truly want to accomplish. Make it simple by not overwhelming yourself with ALL the things you want to accomplish, and rather, think of one specific dream. Then, write down your dream. Let’s say your goal is to purchase a car. Ask yourself what does this car look like? How do you feel when you’re driving it? What does it smell like? What color is it? Then, create your steps:
- Look up cars on the internet to see how much they cost.
- Create a savings plan
- Research insurance plans
Manifestation can be an excellent tool make sure you’re using it daily to get closer to your goals!
