Manifesting your thoughts into reality isn’t a new concept, but it’s had a millennial makeover, becoming the buzzy word on the grapevine. If you still haven’t cottoned on to what we’re talking about, manifesting is the mindful art of thinking something into existence. Basically, it’s about making sh*t happen. Often these left of centre ideas involve hippie hoo haa practices that puts off even the most spiritually attuned of us. No one has time to light a million candles and sway to an ancient chant in their bedroom. We want what we want and we want it now, amen! Well nothing good comes fast, but it can come more easily and that’s why we want to show you how to simply manifest your desires into fruition.
Spend time imagining it
And not just your regular daydreams on the way to work or school, take it a step further when you’re in bed at night with this short practice:
- Take 3 deep breaths (this will help clear your mind)
- Now visualise what you want
- Be specific about every detail (especially if you’re imagining your future husband)
- Think about how you feel and look with that thing
- Repeat every other night
Now ask the universe for it
This is as “silly” as it gets, but it’s the most crucial part. You have to keep asking the world for what you want in your head. (Remember to say please and thank you lol)
And tell everyone you know
Don’t be shy about your dreams, when you start telling people about what you want in life it becomes ingrained in their minds as well. Now they will unknowingly help you get there with their resources.
Don’t listen to everyone, listen to yourself
The only flipside about becoming vocal about our goals is that others will want to give you their opinion. No matter what they say, let them talk, but let it wash over you. Just because they think it’s a bad idea doesn’t mean it is. Practice tapping back in to what your inner warrior wants and don’t let anyone dim your light.
Trust the process
From personal experience, everything I manifested a year ago is only coming into existence now. I’d be lying if I said this stuff doesn’t take time but hand on heart it does work so keep faith. (FYI I’m still waiting for Leonardo DiCaprio and my new designer bag – I don’t doubt they’ll turn up on my doorstep soon though)
Enjoy the fruits and the hard work
The best thing you can do to stay on track is to fall in love with the work involved in going after what you want; fall for the commitment to your goals and romanticise the journey every way you can.
