Manifestation Guide: What Is Manifestation
Are you interested in changing your life? Unsure what manifestation is? These are questions that come up a lot for those who are investigating personal growth or how to change their lives. Keep reading to learn more about how manifestation can help you create the life you want and achieve your goals.
What Does it Mean to “Manifest” Your Dreams?
To manifest something is to create it using your thoughts and beliefs. How is this even possible, though? First, it helps to understand how our thoughts and ideas influence us. When you believe or value something, it changes how you see the world, how you perceive others, and how open you are to receiving opportunities and possibilities the world may have to offer.
For example, let’s say you need a new car. You think about how much you can afford, what you really want in terms of options, and what color your dream car would be. Suddenly, everywhere you turn, you see, hear about, and become aware of vehicles just like the one you want. You will hear about friends selling cars, deals people received on their new cars, and other messages that help you find what you are looking for. The world is guiding you to your new vehicle, and it is led there by your own desire to find a new car.
Everything you experience in this world is filtered through your mindset. The dominant beliefs and values you have will determine if you see an experience as positive or negative, as a possibility or a problem, as something that can help you or something that just gets in your way. When you learn to harness these powers, through manifestation, you can focus your beliefs and thoughts to help bring about the opportunities that will get you where you want to be.
The world is a reflection of you. It reflects your beliefs, actions, decisions, and energy. And, whatever you send out into the world will be reflected to you in new and sometimes unexpected ways. When you believe, for example, that you are worthy of love from someone who honors and respects you, you start expecting different things from potential partners and are willing to compromise less for your happiness.
Who you are affects how you act, which dictates what you achieve. Embodying the person you want to become means thinking, feeling, and acting like the person who has already achieved their dreams. This commitment helps you do what needs to be done to have the things you most desire. If I act as if I have a fulfilling job, I start making decisions that guide me to a dream position, and I soon have what I most want in the world, which is a better job.
So, manifestation is learning to transform your life by believing in yourself, creating the conditions that allow you to achieve, and being open to possibilities and opportunities that help you realize your goals. When you do these things, the universe answers by sending back the things you need to achieve what you most desire.
This process is not just wishful or positive thinking. It does require action. It means you must set clear goals for yourself, know what you want, remain focused on that, and transform beliefs that may be limiting your success. When you embrace the power of manifestation, you can achieve powerful things and realize important, lifelong dreams. And you can connect with yourself in a deep and meaningful way. But, when you do these things, you are consciously creating your life and choosing who you are becoming. You are influencing your decisions and options with your outlook and values. You are co-creating your life.
