I felt like I needed to write this post to clarify what manifesting really is. Some people think that manifesting works by wishing for something, then it magically appears in your life. No!
Manifesting works by training your mind, similar to cognitive behavioural therapy. You concentrate on the things you want in your life, or the things you want to happen, and it trains your brain to recognise these things, or opportunities to gain these things in real life.
Let me give you an example. You want to manifest more money in your life. You listen to money mantras every morning and every night. You create vision boards of what your life will look like with more money. You meditate and envision yourself with a healthy bank balance. You won’t all of a sudden wake up one morning to find that your bank balance has magically increased.
What will actually happen, is that you will be training your brain to recognise the money you already have in your life, and be more thankful for it. You will be more aware of money-making opportunities and be more likely to respond to those opportunities.
This is how manifesting really works. Think about it – if you ask your friend to concentrate on the colour red, they will notice the colour red throughout the day in places they have never noticed it before. Try it and see.
Manifesting actually works – just not in the way you think it does. Nothing worth having comes easily… You have to be open to opportunity and willing to take action when the time comes.
Leave me a comment below and tell me what you are manifesting in your life right now. How is it going for you?
