Ready to manifest anything your heart desires?

Good news: you’re in the right place. Manifestation is my jam y’all!

I get so genuinely excited sharing about how to manifest–which is why I created The Aligned Life in the first place.

But even though I live and breathe this stuff, I’m always up for a refresher.

Because you know what?

Sometimes it’s hard to keep your vibe and energy up! Life gets messy and often we fall right back into our old (unhelpful or toxic) patterns.

Today I’m bringing you step-by-step guide on how to manifest anything you want.

Because even though you might already know the basics, a little extra manifestation inspiration never hurt anyone!

What Is The Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction is one of the Universal Laws: the observable laws of the Universe itself.

Basically, the law means that like always attracts like. Everything in the Universe is attracted to similar energies. (Notice this around you in the people you know!)

That’s a very simple explanation. But it doesn’t really tell you how to actually manifest.

It also helps to understand the Law of Vibration: everything is energy (including thoughts, words, US etc.) Since we can control a lot of our vibration, then we can also use our own vibration to attract things back to us, like a magnet.

Who wouldn’t want to learn how to magnetize their desires to them? You can now see why manifestation is so popular.

Maybe right now you’re wondering “How do you manifest something?”. This guide will get you started manifesting and using the Law of Attraction the right way!

What Is Manifestation?

Manifestation is simply the art of making your ideas or desires manifest in reality.

These days I talk a lot more about manifestation than the Law of Attraction because the Law of Attraction is only a small part of it.

Truthfully, there are loads of ways to manifest successfully. That’s because everyone experiences manifestation in a slightly different way.

So please take this manifestation formula as a jumping off point for your own manifesting experiments. Feel free to add or subtract as you go.

Just be sure make a note of what works best for you so you can come back to it again in the future!

How To Manifest Anything Step #1: Place Your Cosmic Order

Life is a journey–but where’s your destination?

Fact: this is where many would-be manifestors start creating problems! They don’t do the work to get clear about what they really want–then they get frustrated that “manifesting isn’t working”. (Sound familiar?)

Let’s put it this way: if you don’t know where you’re headed, how will you know when you get there?

Of course, you always need to get extra-crispy and specific with your desires! Wishy-washy wishes always equal wishy-washy (aka nonexistent!) results.

Be brave and claim what you want, whatever that may happen to be: the kind of person you want to date, the kind of job you want to have, the amount of money in your bank account. You. Can. Have. It. All! But the very first step is asking.

How To Manifest Anything Step #2: Check Your Blocks

Now that you know what you want, it’s time to look inside yourself for what might be getting in your way.

Fact: if you were already block-free, you’d be there already! So the proof is in the reality pudding babes!

The truth is we all have deep-seated and often toxic ideas about ourselves and the world that are holding us back.

For example, if you were raised to believe “money is the root of all evil” then should you really be surprised that you don’t have any money? And can’t seem to manifest it?

Part of your subconscious mind is just keeping you from becoming “evil”. Because you might not be loved if people think of you that way! So better not take any chances.

That might sound ridiculous to our conscious mind but trust me, that’s the kind of playground logic that our subconscious brain operates at.

After all, your subconscious brain was mostly created before the age of 7!

So if you’re serious about creating a little manifesting magic in your life, you’ll also have to become serious about looking within to see what blocks might be lurking beneath the surface.

How To Manifest Anything Step #3: Program Yourself For Success

Ask. Believe. Receive. That’s the most easy-to-understand manifestation formula out there!

But the problem is most of us have a very big problem indeed with believing.

As you probably know by now, most of us were raised in a “see it to believe it” mentality. We’re taught that this is the only logical way to be–even though most of us have definitely experienced things that cannot be explained by science!

We’re also taught to be goal-oriented. Of course, that’s not a bad thing either! But many of us take this to an extreme. When I finally graduate/ nab the man/ the job etc. thenPlease never forget: we have a lot more power over our world than we’ve been led to believe! Manifestation is all about using that power–or in other words, believing before you see.

Now tell me: do you really believe your manifestation wish is coming true?

Or are you waiting for it to actually show up before you believe it?

Because here’s the deal: only one of those options will actually create manifestation success in your life!

How To Manifest Anything Step #4: Open The Doors

One of the biggest misconceptions about manifesting is that you can ask for something and then sit around waiting for it to happen.

In one word? Nope. Not true at allllll. But here’s why: your energy matters and your beliefs and your actions are all part of the energy equation. So if you say you want something but don’t do any mindset work or take any action to back that up, then what do you think your vibration is really saying?

The Universe is here to meet you half-way–not to do all the heavy lifting for you! Sitting around doing nothing is definitely not opening the doors of opportunity to find you.

So get creative: what can you do to put your desires into motion? What can you start thinking, saying, doing that would align you closer to your goals?

With every action you take, you give the Universe just a little bit more to work with. So don’t snooze on this. Get out there and start putting your dreams into action!

How To Manifest Anything Step #5: Boundaries

Boundaries? Huh? I’m sure a few of you are surprised to see this one on the list! When we think of manifestation we tend to think about things showing up for us. But often that means forgetting an important part of the equation!

We also need to stay clear and hold space for what we desire. That means not filling up our time and energy with things/people that are NOT what we want. It also means not settling for something that’s close-but-not-quite (aka BOUNDARIES).

Again, energy is so important to manifestation! Where you place your attention and time matters. You must safeguard yourself to ensure you’re still working towards what you really want and not getting caught up in distractions.

How To Manifest Anything Step #6: Go Quantum

Quantum manifestation is the true key to getting what you want with lightning speed! But what is quantum manifestation really?

We live in a quantum universe. Quantum physics has proven that the world we observe with our eyes actually responds to our beliefs. (Check out The Double-Slit Experiment and the Observer Effect for more on that!) We are already living a world that’s freakishly malleable to our will. Yet most people spend their entire lives looking at their outer circumstances and wondering when things are going to change.

They’ve missed the truth of the matter: the world responds to us. So when you keep saying “No I can’t do that because I’m broke” the Universe responds with: okay great! Let’s keep you broke and stuck.

It’s a Cosmic Catch-22. You observe something you don’t want! So you put too much weight into that thing (because you can see it and that’s what you’ve been conditioned to pay attention to). So that thing not only does not go away–in many cases, it actually gets worse!

This is really your own doing of course. You were not able to break the cycle between what you see and what you believe.

It’s simple in theory–yet a lot more complicated in practice! But trust me friends, once you can learn how to choose your beliefs and trust on such a deep level, the Universe will be more than happy to accompany you on the superhighway to getting what you want.

So tell me: did you learn anything new about manifestation today? Which part of the process are you going to work on first?

The best thing you can do for your manifesting experiments is to keep a fun and playful vibe! The more you float into a desperate energy, the more likely your manifestations are going to keep eluding you. But remember the power is within you! Desperation means you’ve lost sight of that fact. So come back to yourself and start remembering just how powerful you really are!

Have fun my Conscious Creators!
