What does it mean if you attempt to manifest your dreams?
Manifestation is a specific process that helps people find their dreams, visions, and ideas within their inner world to the outer one.
Instead of staying in a place where visualization is the only way to experience success, manifesting rituals help you to enjoy these experiences in real life eventually.
Anything that you can imagine within the realm of possibility can be manifested into reality when you start thinking about your dreams.
This process isn’t a “think it to get it” concept. If you want something in life, you must attract the correct energy and work hard to get what you want.
Thinking about earning $1 million won’t make that cash appear in your bank accounts.
What it can do is encourage the mindset needed to achieve your goals of earning that much money.
How to Approach the Manifestation Concept
Manifestation requires an open mind and clear thoughts to achieve success.
Most people find that when they stay positive, consistent, and focused on their approach to this concept, the best chances to achieve the desired outcomes appear.
It helps to think about this process as a business plan.
Imagine yourself as an entrepreneur about to start a new company. You know that people will like your ideas, but what will it take to get your goods or services to them?
You might need to develop a prototype of your product to test it. There might be infrastructure needs to fill, such as a warehouse, an office building, or a website.
What will you do to keep expanding this business once people start interacting with it? How will you begin developing new ideas to sell once the current one is no longer popular in the marketplace?
A business plan outlines everything you need to think about in the next three, five, or ten years.
Manifesting rituals provide the same concept, except that you’re focusing on what happens internally as you work to attract your dreams in the physical world.
When you find the vision you want to pursue, you must apply the correct action to make your ideas become a reality.
Instead of believing when you see the results, you’ll see positive outcomes when you have faith and confidence in the manifesting rituals.
What Goals Can I Accomplish Through Manifestation?
Any dreams become possible when you take the manifestation approach. You can accomplish personal goals, professional desires, or financial improvements when using this process.
If there is something that you want to achieve in this life, manifesting powers can help you reach for that outcome.
Have you ever noticed that other people who are experiencing similar emotions get drawn to you when you’re having a bad day?
Have you seen how many positive people find themselves in your company when you are having the best day ever?
That is the power of manifestation on a core level. Imagine what you could accomplish if you were to focus that energy toward something specific?
You can do that through the use of manifestation rituals.
When Can I Use a Manifestation Ritual?
You’ll find numerous opinions online regarding when to use a manifestation ritual to accomplish your dreams.
Some people believe that working on your manifesting routine during a full moon creates more potent results, while others say that the best time is at dawn while preparing for a new day.
You might get told that it is better to wait for significant times on the spiritual calendar, during the astrological cycle, or when the moon is new.
The reality is this: manifesting is a lot like meditation. If you have time to visualize the dreams you want to accomplish, why wait?
Why limit yourself to only a few specific moments of positive energy throughout the year?
That principle also applies to what you hope to manifest. It works best if you don’t limit yourself to an ultra-specific outcome, like getting a promotion at work or earning $1 million.
Think about what your life goals are right now. Once you start visualizing yourself living that life, what hopes and dreams would you have to keep making yourself better or pushing yourself further?
When you can put yourself in that “future you” and see the next set of dreams to achieve, that’s where your manifesting ritual foundations should be today.
How to Create a Manifestation Ritual That Works
Before you start a manifestation ritual, you’ll want to take a few deep, cleansing breaths. This process works better when you have a clear mind, focused energy, and minimal tension in your body.
The extra oxygen you provide to your body by taking deep breaths helps accomplish all of those outcomes.
If you feel anxious about something specific, it helps to explore the reasons why you think that way. What is it about the past or the future that holds your energy back from achieving its maximum results today?
You may find it helpful to perform EFT tapping or spend some time in meditation before a manifesting ritual to release blocked fears or emotions.
After preparing your mindset for the manifestation work, it is time to proceed with your ritual.
Please note that this process serves as a foundation to explore your needs.
Everyone is a little different, which means some variations to this routine might be necessary to achieve the intended results.
1. Create a welcoming space that keeps you focused.
If you attempt a manifesting ritual in a room filled with clutter, it could be challenging to maintain your focus. It helps to create a place where you feel peaceful, loved, and powerful.
Some people prefer to use an altar with candles and focus points, while others enjoy the simplicity of a single flame or pure quietness.
If you like to use aromatherapy for your meditation or prayer, continue to use them for your manifesting ritual. You’ll feel empty and uncomfortable without this environmental element.
Do you like to focus on colors while proceeding to a place of inner calm? During a manifesting ritual, red candles represent passion, strength, and health, while white ones offer positivity, protection, and creativity.
It helps to follow your intuition here. If something feels like it should be included in your environment, allow that positive energy to flow through your space.
Although many people create indoor havens for their manifesting rituals, you’re not limited to those environments.
Gardens, forests, meadows, beaches, and many other outdoor destinations serve as excellent places to keep your mind clear and thoughts organized.
2. Maintain clarity throughout the experience.
Manifesting rituals are more effective when you have specificity without limits. Instead of thinking about prosperity or abundance, consider what universal elements create those outcomes in your life.
Does abundance mean more social relationships? Is prosperity defined by the money you earn, or is it more about the job type you prefer?
Without specificity, manifesting rituals can offer some unexpected, and potentially unpleasant, surprises that may lead you further away from your dreams.
The goal during this step is to proceed with love for your fellow humans.
Your dreams shouldn’t interfere with or harm someone else. If they do, there’s an excellent chance that the outcomes you want will not appear in your life.
You have free will, and it is crucial to respect that trait in others.
3. Visualize what a successful experience means to you.
As you clear your mind, keep your focus on the visualization of what it looks like to achieve your goals and dreams.
Think about the steps it takes to get to where you want to be, picturing yourself creating the positive outcomes needed each time.
It helps to create as much specificity as possible during this process. What exactly are you doing to achieve a goal step, and where are you when you’re putting in this work?
How are you feeling when you visualize yourself striving toward the goals you want to achieve in life?
Some people find it helpful to meditate on these specific questions. If you have trouble picturing what a positive future looks like in your mind, it may be beneficial to review the reasons behind your desires.
Most people find blockages and roadblocks on their manifesting journey because their minds or subconscious say that the outcomes are inappropriate.
Are you holding yourself back, or would your success lead to another’s failure?
What can you do to be the rising tide that lifts everyone within your sphere of influence?
Binaural beats, classical music, nature sounds, and similar audio cues may enhance this process.
You can download specific programs, pull up a YouTube video, or listen to a Spotify playlist, but it helps to avoid content that comes with advertising interruptions.
4. Release the negative energy.
This optional step during a manifesting ritual can help you remove the negative energy that might interfere with your visualization efforts.
If you meditate on questions that offer self-critical or self-defeating answers, you’ll want to clear your mind of those responses.
Write the critical thoughts on some paper. As you look at what you’ve written, try to think about what triggers such a visceral reaction.
Are there unresolved issues in your life that keep bothering you? Is there some way to work toward a resolution?
If you have general anxiety or fear instead of something specific to resolve, take your written note, and dispose of it. A popular way to take this step is to burn it using one of your manifesting candles.
You could toss the item in a fireplace, throw it in the garbage, or run the paper through a shredder.
As long as you physically expel this energy from your body, any technique that feels right is useful.
5. Vocalize your manifesting.
Journaling is an effective coping skill because it turns your thoughts into something real. It is a way to explore your emotions in a safe environment.
When you vocalize your manifesting, you create a journal with the universe, your Divine, God, Allah, or your preference that serves as an accountability contract.
It turns your visualization into something real.
Using intention statements during this part of the manifesting ritual creates a potent promise that your mind strives to keep.
It helps to use “I am” statements, in the form of affirmations, to build the foundation needed to accomplish your goals or reach your dreams.
You’ll want to structure each sentence into a positive, active voice to eliminate any opportunities for negativity to creep into your environment.
Here are some examples to consider of “I am” statements that could bring some powerful energy into your life.
- I am healthy and will accomplish my fitness and wellness goals.
- I am working in a career that I love.
- I am making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
- I am creative, energetic, loving, kind, prolific, productive – use your preferred adjectives!
- I am beautiful and joyful.
- I am in a loving relationship.
What you’ll notice in those examples above is that there aren’t any “not” words.
Although a statement like “I am not out of control with my spending” has positive energy, it also opens the door for some negativity.
When you find the one statement with an authentic ring to it, continue repeating it quietly for the next five minutes. You can say it as a thought, but it works better to whisper it vocally.
This process releases your intentions. Once you have confidence in the path you hope to take, finish the contract by taking a specific action.
You could light a candle, send an email, write a contract, or make a promise to someone you trust that the steps you visualized will turn into something real.
6. Close your manifesting ritual with extra positivity.
After you complete the previous steps of your manifesting ritual, it is time to approach gratefulness, thankfulness, and forgiveness.
It helps to think about something you are currently grateful for in your life.
Although this item could be a worldly possession, a more potent expression gives thanks to the people who have made a meaningful difference in your life.
When you approach thankfulness, try to recall an unexpected opportunity that came your way. What positive outcomes came from those efforts?
Acknowledging the universe’s or Divine’s previous efforts to lead you to your dreams reinforces the idea that you’re not alone in this pursuit.
With forgiveness, your goal is to turn what may seem like failures from the past into lessons that lead to a brighter future.
Even if you feel righteous anger because someone deliberately wronged you, letting go of that chip on your shoulder can help you push closer toward the eventual dreams you can see happening in your life.
Find one specific moment of gratefulness, thankfulness, and forgiveness at the end of each manifesting ritual to reflect upon to close with a positive mindset.
Are You Ready to Start Your First Manifesting Ritual?
A manifesting ritual doesn’t need to be perfect to be effective.
When you approach this process with an open mind and a loving heart, you’ll feel the positive energy start flowing through you.
Use that time to visualize the goals and dreams you want to accomplish one day.
Even if the idea seems outlandish or impossible, set aside those artificial barriers to picture a life with those ideas. What are you seeing, thinking, and feeling in that triumphant moment?
Positive energy is always available. You have the choice to embrace it!
Starting a manifesting ritual using these steps is one way of many to bring that energy into your life.
This process begins with a conscious choice.
