You guys…it’s time to manifest your best life into existence. If we aren’t actively manifesting our best life into a reality, what are we even doing? But seriously, manifestation has changed my life & it will change yours too. So let’s dive deep, shall we?
Manifestation is thinking, acting, & living in a way that leads you to what you want. It’s kind of like that whole “dress for the job you want” mentality, but applied to your whole life.
It’s totally possible to manifest anything that you desire. Think – your dream home or job, a better love life, or just happiness. Sky is the limit.
Manifestation isn’t just thinking aspirational thoughts here & there though…you can manifest so much more into reality by actually applying yourself & taking proactive steps toward your goal. You might remember me talking about the upside down triangle a while ago. Like, goals are great, but you need systems & execution to get you there.
So here’s the skinny on how to manifest your best life & see it unfold right before your eyes.
How to Manifest Something
♡ Get Clarity: What Do You Want To Manifest?
Think Spice Girl vibes – tell me what ya want, what ya really really want. The first step to manifesting anything is to figure out what the fuck you actually want. Sometimes, this is easier said than done.
Take some time to think about where you see yourself in a couple years. What do you want to be doing? Where do you want to be living? My favorite ways to get a little clarity about life are to meditate, write out my thoughts & feelings ( doing the morning pages is so good ), & get inspired by listening to mentors or people that have really lived. As you guys know, sometimes a simple conversation can be a game changer. It’s the reason Michael & I love podcasting. We have so many inspiring, eye-opening conversations on The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER.
♡ Ok, Now Visualize It
Now that you know what you want, the next step is to start visualizing it. And I don’t just mean a quick daydream. Really visualize. See where you’re going to be, who you’re going to be with, how you’re going to get there, what it’s going to feel like, even what you think you’re going to smell when you get there. This is SUCH an important step in manifestation because seeing is believing, & once you can clearly picture your dream it’ll help you get there.
A little visualization tip is to make a vision board. Ya ya ya, we all remember the vison board hype, BUT if you have trouble imagining, sometimes putting it on something you can SEE is helpful. So grab a giant posterboard, collect images of things you want, or the lifestyle or job and put it all on the posterboard. This exercise will help you visualize what you want to manifest.
♡ Positive Language Only!
My team knows how strongly I feel about positive language. How you choose to word your manifestations is SO important. Let’s say you have a job interview & you want to manifest the best possible outcome.
Focus on using language like “I will nail my interview,” rather than language like “I won’t screw up my interview” or “I’ll try to do my best to impress the boss.” See the difference? You want to focus on using only uplifting language & creating positive affirmations that start with:
+ “I can…”
+ “I will…”
+ or “I am…”
And try to avoid using less productive language like:
+ “I won’t do this or that…”
+ “I’ll try to…”
+ or “Maybe one day…”
♡ Get Rid of the Things That Stand in Your Way.
Stop caring what people think & follow your dreams. When you start living your best life, you can pretty much count on the occasional person disapproving. There is no way to make everyone happy so you may as well do what you want.
Try to ignore distractions ( like haters, judge Judys & energy suckers ) & get rid of all things that stand in your way. Maybe this means getting rid of that toxic friend or moving away from that crazy roommate. Whatever it is, say buh-bye – it’s time to stay in your lane & focus on yourself & your goals.
♡ Trust the Process
Always remember to TRUST. THE. PROCESS. Positive vibes attract positive vibes & negative vibes will only attract more negative vibes. That’s just the law of attraction & I think it’s true. Consistency is key. The more good energy & hard work you put out there, the more you will see returned to you.
♡ Break out the Crystals
I LOVE CRYSTALS. Crystals have magical powers ( for real ) that can help you manifest your desires by accentuating your innate positive energy. They will energize & empower all your good vibes & positive affirmations. Crystals can also provide clarity, motivation, concentration, relaxation, & shield you from negative energy. I’ve shared some of my favorite crystals for manifestation below!
♡ Give Thanks & Acknowledgement
When you do start to see your manifestations come to life, greet them with open arms & BE HAPPY. Just remember to stay humble & practice gratitude. Gratitude is such a mindset & so important in life & in manifestation.
♡ Repeat The Manifestation Process.
As you grow & achieve your goals, your dreams might change. You might want to kick it up a notch, or you may want different things when you start a family, you may want a different job. There’s no real end game to manifestation, it’s like an ongoing thing.
My Favorite Crystals for Manifestation
Citrine is a beautiful, orange colored quartz crystal commonly used for manifestation. It will help you channel prosperity, positivity, & abundance. So it can motivate you to get out there & start working towards your dream life. Use in conjunction with pyrite for some extra umph.
Use pyrite to energize & amplify all your heart’s desires! This isometric crystal has the power to enhance any & all nearby crystals. Plus it can cleanse your body & mind of all those negative vibrations.
Good vibes only! Obsidian is what I like to call the hater-blocker crystal. This crystal has metaphysical properties that work to shield you from intrusive thoughts & unwanted negative energy. It can also help to purify the mind & body by opening new pathways & clearing blockages.
When I think of carnelian, I think about the three C’s: clarity, creativity, & courage. This crystal is commonly used to restore motivation, get those creative juices flowing, & help you figure out what the hell you’re gonna do next. So grab your carnelian next time you’re struggling with a decision or just need some reinvigoration.
Clear quartz is known as the ultimate healing stone. This crystal will cleanse your mind, body, & spirit of all that negative juju & amplify your thoughts & energy. Use this stone to supercharge your manifestations & send positive vibrations out into the universe. And like pyrite, this crystal will also increase the power of any surrounding crystals.
Do you have a manifestation practice?
I know it sounds all woo woo magic, but it kind of is. Manifestation works. Creating the life you visualize through manifestation takes time but it’s just so beneficial. It really opens the door for opportunities, benefits your overall quality of life & happiness.
