How To Manifest Anything You Want In Life

It’s that time of year when we reflect on the past, assess where we’re at, and set intentions for the future.

The law of attraction has been a powerful concept in my life over the past couple of years. I’ve had to make a conscious habit of focusing on the things I want out of life, all while avoiding fear-based thoughts. When you’re full of fear or focused on the things you don’t have, you lower your vibration, attract negativity, and continue to live a life of lacking. It’s easy to worry, but these thoughts are illusions that do not serve. Once you get into alignment with what your soul wants, you’ll soon begin to forget what you don’t have and begin to get excited about what you will.

Creating the reality you desire is easier than you think; you just need to believe, act “as if”, and trust the process.

Set your intention.

Be clear about what you want! Don’t be afraid to ask for exactly what you desire. Write it down, picture it, make a vision board. Embrace how you will feel when you receive and achieve your goals!

Ask for it.

Now that you’ve determined the details of what you want to manifest, it’s time to ask the universe for it. Be clear about what you want! If you send mixed messages, you’ll get mixed results. Create your own daily ritual, journal, or pick up a mantra- the more you ask, the stronger your message will be heard.

Imagine how it would feel to already have it.

Act “as if.” When you’re fully committed to what you want, you can feel the happiness and contentment that comes along with it.  Don’t doubt yourself or question whether that person will walk into your life or if you’ll get that special opportunity- continue believing. The universe has confidence in those that have confidence in themselves.

Keep your vibration high.

Keep thinking those positive thoughts! Take care of your body, mind, and spirit through a healthy diet, exercise, positive thinking, healthy relationships, and constant contact with your higher self. I wrote about raising your vibration a few months back, so take a peek to learn more about keeping those vibes up!

Work toward your goals.

It won’t do any good to simply ask. Continue doing everything you can to achieve your goals! Whether you’re looking to buy a home or hoping to meet your soulmate, find ways to work toward your goals every day. Perhaps it’s stashing away a little money every week, or maybe it’s joining social groups to align with like-minded people. When you put in the work, you’ll start to see the magic!

Surrender and release.

You’ve done your part- now it’s up to the universe. Don’t focus on the how or the when– that’s not for you to know. There’s no way to manipulate divine order. Once you surrender, be sure to enjoy life! You’ll discover your dreams come true much faster when you embody your intention and have fun during the process.

You never know exactly how your desires will manifest, but that’s the fun part. So set your intention, focus, and enjoy! Surprises are what make life such an exciting ride. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
