The Do’s And Don’ts Of Manifesting

New to manifestation? Then you’re probably looking for manifesting do’s and don’ts.

Manifesting is simple–but it’s not always easy!

That’s why I spend so much time answering questions and teaching on this topic. It’s truly one place where the slightest shifts in attitude and energy can make all the difference to your results.

I always do my best to explain manifestation in straightforward terms while also avoiding giving out the same old tired advice that you’re probably heard a thousand times.

Fact is, most manifesting methods don’t go nearly deep enough! So it’s my mission to help change all of that—and actually get you the results you’re after.

What Is Manifesting?

Manifesting is the process of making your desires a reality, but with a spiritual-energetic twist.

This isn’t about working your fingers to the bone or proving yourself in the regular Muggle-world approved ways.

It’s about aligning yourself with what you want on every level (aka alignment). That means: taking the right action, and letting the Universe help you along the way.

Whether you’re manifesting love or manifesting money (or anything else!), it’s always a good idea to check in from time to time to make sure you’re still heading in the right direction.

Today, I put together this quick guide about the do’s and don’ts of manifesting to make sure you’re still on the right track.

The Do’s And Don’ts Of Manifesting

Manifesting Do’s & Don’ts

Don’t: Wait For The Universe To Do Everything For You

Do: Take Action

The biggest myth about manifestation is that you can just make a wish and sit back and wait for it to show up.

I mean yes, that works–if you’re already in alignment.

If you’re not in alignment, then you can make all the wishes you want and they will not come to you.

Manifestation is actually all about what I call 360 Degree Alignment: making sure you are aligning on every level with what you want.

Unfortunately, that also includes your subconscious mind: including your Shadow, your traumas, and your limiting beliefs–aka the stuff we’d rather keep in the closet forever.

But please don’t let that scare you! Your shadow is not here to punish you. It’s actually here as your path forward to healing. The only question is: are you ready to take the first step?

Manifesting Do’s & Don’ts

Don’t: Ignore Your Subconscious Mind

Do: Look Into Your Past For Clues About Your Manifesting Blocks

Like it or not, we’re all the product of our past experiences. The events of your early childhood are often take up a lot of space in your mind–without you even noticing.

This is exactly why inner healing work is so important for manifestation. If you ignore this, then you’re likely to get tripped up by your own limiting beliefs. You’ll probably feel stuck and constantly sabotage your own best efforts –without ever realizing the problem is really you.

This can leave you going around in circles, feeling stuck, or like the world is working against you. But of course, the world isn’t really working against you–no matter what it might feel like.

You always have the power to look within and create healing where you need to. So get unblocked and find your manifestation power.

Manifesting Do’s & Don’ts

Don’t: Wobble Through Belief

Do: Believe Your Potential More Than Your Reality

Are you on the Belief Seesaw? One minute, you’re super hyped and confident about the money, man, vision, etc. And then the next you’re like: “What am I even doing trying to make this happen?”

This is an energy wobble: falling into trust and back out again. (Sometimes with lightning speed!)

It’s understandable how it happens. Most of us have been taught “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

The only problem is that when it comes to manifesting, we need to believe it first. Belief = creation

That’s why so much of the work I do inside Heal’d, my virtual healing studio, is about strengthening your beliefs. Otherwise, you get caught in this endless up-and-down, throwing your energy around and not making progress.

If you find yourself wobbling, first off, don’t freak out! Noticing that you’re in this state is just a signal that you need to work on your belief.

Belief Journal Prompts

Here are some journal questions to help get you started:

  • Can you believe in your potential more than your past?
  • What would you have to shift for that to happen?

Manifesting Do’s & Don’ts

Don’t: Frantically Chase Your Desire

Do: Attract What You Want By Becoming It

Force is the opposite of trust. You’ll know when you’ve gone into force mode if you’re trying to micromanage every detail. Some examples: trying to control what people say, do, think, when things should happen, what things should happen & in what order etc.

Remember, manifestation is about attraction, not chasing. When you feel your energy start to slip, it’s time to do some inner work. How can you align yourself more with your desire?

There’s always an action step you can take right now to lock in that desire. In turn, that will effortlessly call in what you want, instead of exhausting yourself by forever chasing.

Manifesting Do’s & Don’ts

Don’t: Assume There Is Better Than Here

Do: Bring Your Manifesting Into Human Reality

Most of us ladies were raised on fairy tales. while we might logically know that reality is very different than those fantastical books, sometimes we’re still holding onto to the idea of a “happily ever after”.

If you think that your manifestation will make you perfect or that it will mean that you never feel unhappiness/loneliness/unworthiness ever again, you’re really just creating an extra wall of resistance. (Because nothing can ever meet those lofty standards!)

Essentially, this is about bringing things back down to reality–not because they’re not amazing. But because if you leave them in fairy tale land that’s where they’ll remain!

Manifesting Do’s & Don’ts

Don’t: Go It Alone

Do: Tap Into The Wisdom Of Your Future Self

Honestly, I understand why people get stuck in the hustle and grind instead of tuning into trust during the manifestation process.

This happens because you think you have to! It’s because you haven’t grown your trust muscles and you haven’t yet developed a relationship with the unknown.

In reality, you are being given guidance at every step. Yes, even if sometimes that guidance comes in the form of a test. (“Are you ready to rise or not?”) You ‘re always being given signs, divine downloads, and synchronicities. That is all magic that you can use for your growth.

However, my favorite form of guidance of all is tapping into the wisdom of your Future Self.

To tap into your Future Self, just imagine that that future version of you is right in the room with you and you can ask them anything you want. Where are you needing guidance or reassurance? What does that version of you have to say?

This is my favorite tip because it’s building your trust within yourself and tapping into your full potential. (Instead of living your life limited by what you’re already experienced).

Just remember that you are never alone. The guidance is always there but it is up to you to do the asking sometimes.

Final Notes

Did these manifestation do’s and don’ts inspire you today?

Personally, I love manifestation because it gives me the power to create anything. I don’t have to sit around and wait for permission from someone or wait for the Universe to bring me what I want. At any time, I can start co-creating just by coming back to my own beliefs–and the power of simply knowing that is everything!

I hope these tips inspired you to start creating the exact life you want! Have fun manifesting my friend.
