The Manifestation Manual: What is Manifestation & How to Use It
Many of us live in a perpetual state of reality where we dream of the type of life we want to live or the sort of person we want to be, not realizing that all we wish for is within our grasp if we choose to harness the gifts we were given to make it a reality.
Manifestation is one way of doing this. Read on to find out about manifestation and how you can use it in your life!
What is Manifestation?
Manifestation is merely the application of thought in order to transform the reality around you. On a physical level, we could ‘manifest’ a creative idea and turn it into a piece of art – a story, a poem, a piece of music, a painting. Here, we are using our innate talents in the world of art to create something that others can see, admire and, above all, bring us joy and happiness.
Manifestation is no different, except it uses the power of thought instead of artistic fingers or musical instruments. If I were to concentrate my thoughts heavily towards something, I would think it, wish for it, pray for it – and manifestation would happen. Let’s say that, after a string of bad relationships with the wrong people, I think to myself, “I want to be the type of person who the right person for me is attracted to”, then the manifestation would result in the right partner coming along.
You may be wondering why I wouldn’t instead think, “I want the right person to come to me” which would seem vastly less complicated. But manifestation starts from within. It is about becoming the very best of ourselves so that we can have the life we both need and deserve, one that makes us happy and encourages us to achieve our full potential.
It sounds a little bit like magic – but that’s exactly what it is! If we take God from the Bible – or any God or Goddess from any ancient civilization – they were the original manifestors. With the power of thought, they created the Sun, stars, the Universe and the Earth. We, too, have this power inside of us – it’s all just a question of harnessing it!
How to Manifest:
There are many ways to manifest your hopes, dreams and desires. Below are a few ways to do so:
- Through meditation sessions: When manifesting, it is important to be in a quiet environment where you can hear your thoughts clearly and there are no distractions. It is helping to be burning incense while doing this too. Incense such as Storax is particularly beneficial as it invokes the power of the Goddess Hecate who can help assist with manifestation.
- Visualization: When manifesting, it is important to visualize exactly what you want. If you say, “I want to have good fortune in the next two weeks” then you have to imagine what type of good fortune you want. You have to envisage yourself surrounded by good fortune, envisage yourself happy and contented. It can be helpful to stare at a picture of yourself smiling while visualizing in order to keep your own face fresh in your mind.
- Affirmations: Affirmations are an essential part of manifestation and very simple. Simply, it is repeating a short sentence to yourself over and over again. If you wish to become self-confident at your next socializing event, say, “I am self-confident” over and over again. If you can visualize at the same time, then all the better!
- Manifesting in conjunction with the Moon: The Moon is not just a pretty ball of light in the sky. The Full Moon has a mysterious, yet profound effect on us and part of this effect is our ability to tap into the collective unconscious or the unconscious deep within us. Manifesting under the Full Moon (some also believe that when the Moon goes into Cancer this can also be highly beneficial) can yield even more powerful and quicker results than usual.
In short, manifestation is all about the power of thought and the belief in one’s own abilities to acquire the life they dream of and become the person they were meant to be. Manifestation does with the purest intentions can only yield positive results; needless to say, manifestation does with negative intentions usually brings the opposite.
Whatever it is you want to improve in your life or attract into your world, try the power of manifestation and see what happens. Dreams really can come true!
