YOU have probably seen the emoji of a candle doing the rounds on social media, being used by users to manifest their desires.
Manifesting refers to various pseudoscientific self-help strategies intended to bring about a personal goal, primarily by focusing one’s thoughts upon the desired outcome.
The techniques are based on the law of attraction of New Thought spirituality. Manifesting requires positive thinking in order for the universe to help bring about what you believe.
There has been extensive research on the topic, especially bridging spirituality and science to explain how some people are able to manifest as they do.
And, you can manifest anything – from money to changed habits.
Manifesting works for those who believe in it, and the secret is always to put in the work. Remember, nothing works unless you do.
There are self-help books and videos on YouTube that can help you delve deeper into this if you are keen on more information.
Many of us want success, to be able to afford the things we want and go on holiday without worrying about money.
This is how many people flock into manifestation, but you can use these techniques for anything.
In 2014, I got myself a copy of the book The Secret, and it helped a great deal with positive thinking and finding myself spiritually.
Even though manifesting is turning dreams into reality, it requires proactive steps because it will not happen overnight.
Proverbs 23:7 of the King James Version of the Bible reads: “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
And, the law of attraction tells us exactly this. The statement is part of a collection of 30 wise sayings of Solomon, often called “the sayings of the wise” or “words of the wise”.
Here is how you can manifest:
1. Be clear about your goals
Know exactly what you want, and make your intention as specific as possible.
2. Ask for what you want and write it down
This can be done in a variety of ways including prayer, meditation, visualisation, speaking your intentions out loud, a vision board and/or “future box”. This is a container full of pictures of items you want to manifest.
3. Work towards your goals
When intentions are clear and your goals are constantly in your mind, they will be in your subconscious. So, working towards them will be automatic. Put in the work for what you would like to achieve. Manifesting works when you do the work.
“The energy we put out in the world is the energy we get back,” Oprah Winfrey said in one of her talks.
This is because when you focus on the good, more good shows up. So, be very mindful of the energy you put out.
