How To Manifest Something In 5 Steps

How do you manifest something using the Law of Attraction? Follow these 5 steps to manifest something you desire.

Even though you may not always be aware of it, you are constantly manifesting your reality.

The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. Like the Law of Gravity, the Law of Attraction is a law of the universe that is always in action. 

Without exception, you will always attract into your life whatever you give your energy, focus, and attention to.

The best part is this law works for anything you want.

These 5 steps can be used to manifest anything including money, relationships, good health, and more!

1. Clarify What You Want To Manifest

The first step to manifest something is to clarify what you want and why you want it.

Your thoughts and beliefs are like a magnet, and according to the “like attracts like” principle, you’ll attract experiences that match it.

So you need to have absolute clarity over what you want to manifest.

Grab a journal and write down your desire and why you want to manifest this into your life.

The “why” here is important because it will dictate whether you will attract positive or negative experiences.

If the reason behind your desire is backed by negative energy like jealousy and hate, then you’ll attract more negative outcomes.

Instead, you want your desire to be backed by positive intentions like happiness and joy so you can attract all things good.

2. Visualize Your Desire

The second step to manifest something is to visualize how it feels to experience what you want.

As I teach in my book Feeling Good, your energy creates your reality.

Therefore, it’s important to remember that it’s your feeling that attracts when it comes to manifestation.

Whatever energy and attention you put out into the Universe, will come back to you.

Out of the many manifestation techniques available, the best way to get into the feeling of what you want is through visualization.

Take deep breaths and picture in your head what you want to manifest.

Visualize your desire using your five senses and imagine how good it feels to experience your desire.

Most people will feel excited, optimistic, or happy which are all emotions with high vibrations.

Make it a daily habit to meditate and dwell on these positive feelings.

When you feel happy, joyful, and loving, you’ll attract experiences that match your energy according to the Law of Attraction.

Turn to visualization whenever your negative thoughts start to creep in so that you can return this high-vibe feeling.

3. Identify Your Limiting Beliefsgirl writing

The third step to manifest something is to acknowledge the limiting beliefs that are blocking your way to manifesting.

Limiting beliefs are the negative beliefs that constrain your life in some way, shape, or form.

Limiting beliefs block your manifesting power by dragging down your energy into a state of low vibration.

Some common limiting beliefs when manifesting something are:

  • I don’t believe I can have want I want.
  • It’s hard to get what I want.
  • I’m not good enough.
  • Who am I to have everything I want?
  • It takes hard work to get what I want.

One thing that’s common in all of these limiting beliefs is they are all false.

These limiting beliefs only exist in your mind as a result of your past experiences to protect yourself from pain in the future.

The first step to getting rid of your limiting beliefs is to simply acknowledge them.

By witnessing your limiting beliefs, you’ll be able to recognize that they are not true and take corrective action to eliminate them from your life.

Honor yourself for having the strength to witness your limiting beliefs instead of running from them. 

Trust that if you weren’t ready to face your limiting beliefs, you wouldn’t even be reading this blog post!

By choosing to search for a post like this, you’re sending a massive statement to the Universe that you’re ready to go big and claim your desires.

4. Use Affirmations To Shift Your Beliefs

The fourth step to manifest something is to shatter your limiting beliefs by saying affirmations.

Affirmations are positive phrases or statements used to challenge negative thoughts.

Use affirmations to gently replace your negative thoughts with high-vibe energy. Recite your affirmations while maintaining the energy you cultivated in Step 2.

To get started, choose any of the following affirmations that resonate with you and use them whenever you need to combat negative thoughts.

  1. I can have anything I want.
  2. It’s easy to attract what I want.
  3. I deserve everything I want and more.
  4. I am enough.
  5. I can do less and attract more.

If you’re new to affirmations, you can follow this guide on using affirmations to get started.

But the number one thing to remember when using positive affirmations is it’s all about how you feel. 

Affirmations work the best when you actually believe in what you are saying. Don’t just recite affirmations just for the sake of doing it.

Choose a few that resonate with you and actually imagine how you feel if you lived out the affirmation.

If reciting an affirmation brings you a sense of relief, then you are on the right track to harnessing the power of positive affirmations.

Try writing affirmations for yourself. No one knows you and your circumstances better than you! The most powerful affirmations are the affirmations you write for yourself.

5. Let Go Of The Outcomewoman praying

The final step is to step back and let the Universe lead the way.

Many people mess up at this stage because they constantly worry about their desire.

This is a big no-no because it essentially negates all the work you have put in.

Feelings of worry and fear lower your vibration and create huge resistance against what you want.

If you want to manifest something, you must unblock all vibrational resistance standing between you and your desire.

Because in the absence of resistance, your desire must come to you. This is how the Law of Attraction works.

So the biggest lesson here is to maintain your high vibrational energy by trusting that the Universe has your back.

Trust that the Universe is always responding to your energy and you will always attract outcomes that are a vibrational match for how you feel.

If you find yourself getting impatient with your manifestation, use this prayer of surrender to let go of your controlling tendency to allow yourself to receive guidance from the Universe, “Universe, I surrender my agendas, timelines, and desires to you. I trust that you are leading me towards solutions of the highest good for all.
