How Manifesting Works: Manifestation for Beginners


If you want to know how manifesting works, this article is for you.

Whether you’re new to the world of manifestation or feel like you may be overanalyzing the process, in this article I’m going to share what it is, how it works, and how to use it so that you can unlock your God-given power to create the life you desire.


What Is Manifestation?


Manifestation is the process of creating your own reality.

It’s more than just wishing and receiving. When used right, it can improve your relationships, your business, freedom, the amount of money you’re making, and your overall quality of life.


How Manifesting Works


Effective manifesting isn’t just about affirmations or mantras. You can’t sit there, say a few words and expect everything to happen on its own. This is one of the biggest misconceptions that I see.

Although having clarity is a good start, it’s not everything.

The most powerful type of manifesting is the kind when your emotions and actions are aligned to your intended desired outcome.

For example, if you desire more money in your life, you need to FEEL what it would be like and ACT AS IF if you had the exact amount of money you desire right NOW.

The most effective ways to practice this is through mindful meditation, guided visualization, and yoga.

These are essential and should be practiced frequently in your life. If you feel like you don’t have time or that you’re bad at any of these, then that’s all the more reason to do them! This is why it is called PRACTICE, not “perfection.”

How to Manifest the Life You Desire:


1. Decide



Think about the thoughts that go through your head when you’re unable to make a decision.

They usually go something like: “I can’t because…” or “I don’t know what the right choice is.”

When those kinds of thoughts rule your mind, you limit and block yourself from reaching your full potential.

How can you expect the Universe to give you the life you wish for if you don’t even know what it looks like?

When you choose to make a decision, you identify your desire. That desire then becomes easier to manifest because you can now see it clearly in your mind’s eye.

Remember, FEELING what you desire as if it’s already yours is how manifesting works.

Take the time to visualize it as if it’s already happening.

Are you on vacation with your family?

Where are you? Hawaii? Disney World?

Are you laughing together and having the time of your life?

You’ve got to feel 100% aligned and certain about your decision.

2. Imperfect Action


Don’t let perfection stop you from taking action.

One common thing that I see is people not taking action because they want everything to be perfect before they do.

Don’t do that!

Nothing is ever going to be perfect. Especially if you’re trying something NEW.

There are no guarantees in life but this present moment right now and every time you don’t act in the NOW, you miss it.

Let yourself be messy. Embrace it. Take a leap of faith!

Are you willing to be bad at something long enough to get good at it?


3. Receive



If you were handed a gift from God, would you throw it away?

Of course not! However, many of us do this without realizing it.

Sometimes the exact thing we ask for shows up on our doorstep but we don’t like the packaging so we send it away.

This is why it is important to release your attachment to the way things should look and practice vulnerability and trust that divine wisdom is working in your favor.

Learn how to operate from your heart, not your mind.

Your mind is always going to step in with “but, but, but…”
That is because the mind is programmed to help you survive, not thrive. It leads to a life of total limitation and imprisonment, and you don’t want that!

Trusting your heart will guide you to a life full of expansiveness, freedom, and miracles.


To summarize this post here’s how manifesting works:


  1. Decide what you want so that you can feel and visualize your desire, making manifestation easier.
  2. Take messy imperfect action.
  3. Trust your heart so that you can be open to receiving miracles.
