If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance that you’re looking for something better.
Well, the good news is that you’re hardly alone! I’ve built this community of passionate co-creators so I know that most of us are looking to create positive changes in our life.
Truthfully, manifesting is just ONE way to create change. (There’s also–you know–the regular old muggle methods! Goal setting, hard work, struggle etc.)
But manifesting is still my FAVORITE method and that’s why I’m so passionate about sharing all that I’ve learned over the years here with you.
So let’s get right into it today: here are my top 10 tips for manifesting the life you REALLY want!
10 Tips For Manifesting The Life You Want!
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #1:
Get Clear About What You Want
The number one enemy of successful manifestors is wishy-washy-ness! Goals that aren’t measurable are difficult to create or attain, for you, the Universe and anyone.
I’ve met soooo many people who seem totally discouraged by their manifesting goals not coming true. But after a little digging, it turns out that those very same people haven’t really even bothered to figure out what they want. Like specific. Really specific!
So it’s time to stop saying you’re manifesting love or wealth or happiness! If you don’t know what those things are, then the Universe doesn’t either! What do those words really mean to you? What would you want to see in order to know that you’re there?
Clarity is always the first stop on the road towards manifesting the life that you really want so make sure you’re clear about what you’re asking for.
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #2:
Throw Out Your Excuses
The number one requirement for making a breakthrough and finally manifesting what you want is to throw away all your old excuses. Yup, it’s true! Most people have a lot of stories for why they haven’t achieved everything they want. (They’re too old, wrong place, too poor, etc. etc.)
But you really have a choice here: hold onto the old stories or drop them and be willing to start all over again. It can be scary to realize that you’re actually the one in your own way! But if you truly want to change, you’ll have to face those fear-based excuses head-on and move through to the other side.
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #3:
Don’t Give An Inch To Doubt
I don’t know why we do it but we do: we get obsessive about all the supposed million and two reasons why we can’t or shouldn’t have what we really want.
But you don’t have to get on the negativity downward spiral! We’re always the ones in control of our own mind. So why not flip the coin and start obsessing over all the reasons why we do deserve our desires instead? The doubt monster is a stealthy stalker of your own happiness! But it’s really just fear in disguise.
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #4:
Fear Is An Illusion
Fear was biologically a win: it helped keep our ancestors alive during the days when you had to go out and kill your own meal. But these days our fear muscles are largely overdeveloped. Tell me what truly life-threatening events you face on a regular basis? No matter how nervous and awkward you might feel about something, you can’t actually die of embarrassment!
We think that if we don’t make mistakes or fail that people won’t laugh at us. Newsflash: people might be laughing at you anyway! That’s just the price you pay for being a unique individual on earth. It’s your job to keep on being uniquely you and not to give in and become another boring background player.
And as we have learned fear is just our primitive brain trying to keep us safe (and boring).
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #5:
Raise Your Vibe
It’s your number one job in this life to feel good. And I mean feel really freaking good! Doing the things you love naturally boosts your mood and your vibration. It’s really difficult to attract beautiful things to you when you’re in a constantly pessimistic state. Whatever you focus on expands, so it’s time to turn the ship around!
The reality is that the current moment is never going to be perfect. But you always have the choice to be happy despite that fact. You can let all the imperfections in life get in your way–or not! So figure out what you need to do to make yourself happy and then actually do those things. You’ll be shocked at how much this one trick can change the course of your life!
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #6:
Manage Your Expectations
Your expectations literally create the world you live in! So what are you expecting to happen to you? When you leave the house every day, are you expecting to be late? To have people be rude to you? To have things just go wrong? Why would you burden yourself with those expectations? You might think you’re just bracing yourself for reality but your expectations always come true. Walking around thinking that bad things are going to happen is just a guarantee that bad things are going to happen!
But what would happen if you flipped the switch and started expecting miracles instead? Hmmmm? So why don’t you out there today and find out?
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #7:
Look In Your Shadows
Be honest: if someone came and handed you your wish on a silver platter right now what would you feel like? For most people, despite how much we want something, there’s also a little bit of the eeek factor involved! (Like “Ohmygosh now I have to actually do this!”) It’s that little voice that I want to talk to right now.
Every goal you could ever dream up will also come with a dark side. You’ll have to put yourself out there or do something new. You’ll have to take risks or deal with the fallout of other people viewing you in a new way.
Unless you figure out what that dark side is for you, you’re risking secretly sabotaging your own efforts. Your subconscious mind is crazy powerful and it will actively work against you if you’re not careful! So dig in and look at all the crazy scenarios your mind can come up with in order to tame them!
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #8:
Follow The Synchronicity
Did you know the Universe is constantly conspiring on your behalf? Well, it’s true! You’re constantly being given signs and coincidences that are meant to guide you on your path. The only question is are you paying attention?
Think of manifesting like taking a step out onto a stepping stone in a pond. Right now there’s only one stone. But if you take the next step, the next stone will miraculously appear! It’s time for you to have faith and follow the path that’s being put in front of you. That’s the only way you’ll find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #9:
Another one of the universal laws is the Law of Action. Basically, it means that you must always take action towards your dreams. However, that doesn’t mean you have to go out and hustle like the muggles do! The key here is to focus on inspired action: the action that’s inspired from being in a flow state.
So this is really a two-parter: the first step is to get into alignment (and stay there!). The second is to keep your eyes (and mind!) open to new possibilities entering your world. Pay attention to any sudden inspiration or moments of coincidence. They might just be the Universe coming to meet you half way so make sure you don’t miss the opportunity!
Manifest The Life You Want Tip #10:
As much as we like to plot and plan for our lives, there are other factors at play. We’re not the only one with an agenda! Lots of other people have wishes too. And sometimes that means that things don’t happen exactly when we want them to.
But the most important lesson in manifesting of all is that it’s all going to be okay. Sometimes we’re too attached to the why. Sometimes we’re too impatient. And sometimes the things that we want aren’t really in our best interests! As smart as you are, you don’t know absolutely everything. It’s important to surrender to the infinite wisdom of the Universe because there’s always a plan.
So take a deep breath and have faith that wonderful things are always headed your way–and some of them are even better than anything you could ever imagine!
I hope these tips help you kick off 2018 on a high note! I’d love to hear how they work out for you so please drop me a line and let me know.
