12 Most Potent Ways to Manifest Your Ideal Life

12 Most Potent Ways to Manifest Your Ideal Life

Manifesting is the process of bringing things into your life primarily through changing your thinking habits. Of course, there is a little bit more to it than just thoughts.

While there are as many techniques to manifesting as there are people, here are 12 that I find reliable.

1. Be clear

Know what it is you want down to the smallest detail. Otherwise, winning the lottery could end up being a $5 scratcher.

2. Get your emotions involved

Did you know that emotions live in the visual part of your brain? So, to keep yourself inspired, create pictures of what you want and look at them regularly. Most people refer to these as “vision boards.”

3. Get your subconscious on board

No matter how much you hope, pray, or act towards a goal, if your little voice is telling you that you cannot have it, you will not get it.

4. Say your affirmations out loud daily

Keep your goal in the forefront of your mind by reminding yourself what you want, why you want it, and that you deserve it. (This helps with the subconscious part.)

5. Write away your worries

I find that by writing about what I want, and why, excessively helps me identify what might be in my way. Frequently, personal history pops up. But, once those issues are on the page and I can look at them, they become much easier to manage and deal with.

6. Tell the world

Have you ever noticed that goals no one knows about are really easy to miss? So, let everyone in on what you want.

7. Be accountable

While you’re telling everyone what you want, have some of those people check in on you. Preferably, select people who love you and keep you honest.

8. Act as if

If you want to have a good time in a situation where you are unhappy, pretend to have a good time. What you’ll find is that you’ve fooled your brain into having fun. Before you know it, you actually ARE having a good time. So, by pretending to already have what you want, you keep those positive thoughts flowing and make it easier for you and your goals to find each other.

9. Do what needs to be done

If you want to meet new people, all the thinking in the world will not help if you do not leave the house. This ties into acting “AS IF.”

10. Commit

If it is worth doing, it is worth doing right. Agreed? For manifestation to really work, you need to throw yourself in 100%. And just when you think you have given all you can, you’ll find something new.

11. Remember the process

This is not the time for instant gratification. Changing thoughts might be the hardest thing you ever do. It is a process that you have to work at.

12. Trust

And this may be the hardest part. Trust yourself. Believe in yourself.

Truthfully, doing just one of these things is not enough. Do ALL of them, and do some more. A habit is hard to break; thought habits are some of the hardest.
