How To Manifest Using Visualization In 5 Steps

Visualization is a powerful practice that can help you manifest what you want. This blog post will give you the 5 steps you need to master visualization.

If you have read my book on manifestation, Feeling Good, you will know that visualization is one of my favorite practices out of all the manifestation techniques that are available.

The definition of manifesting is to cultivate the feeling of what you want to experience and then allow that experience to come into form through energetic alignment of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.

And visualization helps you do just that.

Visualization helps you get into vibrational alignment with your desire by cultivating the feeling of experiencing your desire as if it has manifested.

The more you embody the positive feelings of experiencing your desire, the closer you are to manifesting your desire.

Follow these 5 steps to visualize your way to your manifestation.

1. Find A Quiet Place

The first step to manifesting using visualization is to find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for a while.

This can be your bedroom, your basement, or your backyard.

Choose a place where you can sit in stillness for around 10 minutes.

2. Take A Seat and Breathe Deeply

The second step for visualization is to take a tall seat on the floor or in a chair.

It doesn’t matter where you sit, as long as you feel comfortable.

Remember, this visualization exercise will take around 10 minutes to complete so choose the most comfortable seated position for your body.

Once you are seated, close your eyes and start to breathe in and out deeply.

Clear your mind of excess thoughts by focusing your attention on the breath that is moving in and out of your nose or mouth.

Use your inhales to breathe in inspiration and positivity. Use your exhales to breathe out limitations and negativity.

Continue this cycle of breaths for 10 rounds.

3. Visualize Your Desire

The third step is to visualize the desire you want to manifest.

You may have lots of things you want to manifest, but for this exercise, just pick one that stands out the most to you.

If you keep a manifestation journal, feel free to look through it and pick a desire from it.

Begin to think about your desire and create a mental image of your desire in your mind.

The more details you can think of, the more realistic your manifestation will seem to you.

Use your five senses to describe your desire.

Imagine yourself being who you want to be.

Imagine yourself living the life that you want to live.

Imagine yourself doing what you want to do.

Once you have a vivid image of your desire in your mind, move on to the next step.

4. Shift Your Focus Toward Your Feelings

The fourth step to manifesting using visualization is to shift your focus toward how you feel.

Now that you have a clear picture of your desire, I want you to shift your attention toward your feelings and emotions.

Instead of just thinking about the form of your desire, think about how good it feels to experience it.

For example, if you want to manifest a new job, don’t just think about your shiny new corner office or your fancy job title. Go beyond the form by imagining how good it feels to work in a career that truly aligns with your passion.

Focus on emotions with high vibrations such as joy, happiness, or passion.

If you aren’t sure which emotion corresponds to which vibration, refer to the Emotional Guidance Scale.

You can even take it to the next level by imagining how your manifestation can elevate the spirits of your family, loved ones, and friends.

Continue to reach for better-feeling thoughts and invite positive images to enter your mind for around 5 minutes.

5. Feel Your Vibrations Shift

The final step to manifesting using visualization is to feel your energy shift toward higher vibrations.

Now that you have a strong mental image of your desire and how good it makes you feel, it’s time to let the positive energy raise your vibrations.

Continue to sit in stillness for 5 minutes and simply let the positive energy you’ve cultivated marinate.

You may feel the urge to smile or feel a sudden surge of optimism running through your body which are all good signs that your visualization is working as intended.

After your 5 minutes are up, take a moment to identify how your emotions have shifted compared to before.

Use the Emotional Guidance Scale to identify the emotions you feel now compared to the emotions you felt at the start of the practice.

Take note of any positive shifts in your emotions and notice how much your vibrations increased.

Your emotions tell you whether you are backing up your desire with positive or negative vibrations, which determines the kind of outcomes you will attract.

Because according to the Law of Attraction, whatever vibrations you send out, you will receive.

When you feel high vibrational and positive, you manifest people, situations, and experiences that support your positive energy.

When you feel low vibrational and negative, you manifest people, situations, and experiences that support your negative energy.
