Have you ever wished you could manifest your dreams into reality?
You have been living a “normal” life.
Yet you know you deserve so much more.
You’d like more in terms of better health, peace of mind, and stability.
Others have these things so why not you?
To manifest your dreams into reality is entirely possible. It may take a day, a week, a month, or a year but your life can change for the better if you know the exact steps to take.
You are the creator of your life. Your thoughts, beliefs, and actions shape the course of your life whether you know it or not.
This is actually a good thing because then you know that for the most part, you are in control and if you can change any limiting thoughts, beliefs, and actions, then you can change your life!
How is this possible? You might have heard about the law of attraction i.e. you attract from the world what you put into the world.
If you are conveying positive energy, you will, knowingly or unknowingly, attract positivity into your life. Similarly, if you put out fear and doubt, you will experience many limitations in your everyday life.
Most of us have fears and numerous limiting beliefs and these block us from truly living the life we deserve. A lot of practice is necessary to replace these fears and limitations with positive thoughts and indeed a positive life.
This guide will show you the exact steps to take to manifest your dreams into reality.
Become Aware of Your Life Narrative
Our life narrative is the accumulation of experiences from our past life and our present life. These experiences may have been traumatic or at least not optimal.
Past experiences affect your beliefs and thoughts and these thoughts and beliefs manifest into your everyday reality.
Your health may be less than optimal or you could be constantly struggling financially. If so, your life narrative and the way you view the world could be the root causes of the limitations you are experiencing.
The first step to changing your reality is identifying and coming to terms with your limiting beliefs and then letting go of your past experiences.
You could release your past experience just by making an affirmation such as “I release all my past traumatic experiences now.” You could also ask the Universe for a release from your past trauma.
From now on, be aware of thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that are holding you back. Strive to replace each negative thought, feeling, or belief with a positive one.
Practice Self Love
You cannot manifest your ideal life if you do not love and accept yourself. You need to fill yourself with love and joy so that you can attract these exact things into your life.
If you are feeling shame, anxiety, or depression, you will invariably attract more of these things in your life.
Love, joy, and positivity are high vibrational energies. The Universe also vibrates at a much higher energy frequency. Therefore, in order to manifest, you need to deeply experience high-level vibrations that align with those of the Universe.
No matter what you have been through, learn to fill yourself with love now and you will attract more of that in all aspects of your life.
Have A Clear Vision Of Your Desires
Although almost everyone wants a better life, few of us actually know exactly what we want that life to look like.
If you do not know exactly what you want, how can you possibly manifest it?
One reason why we may not be living our dream life is that we keep sending mixed or unclear signals of what we want. If you send out missed vibrations into the Universe, you will manifest mixed results.
It is not enough to say you want to ‘look good.’ You need to be specific about what ‘looking good’ means to you. Does it mean having a closet full of amazing clothes? A more toned body? A body that is 100 pounds lighter?
Take the time, sit down with pen and paper, and write down what you want. Get down to the specifics. This will give you plenty of clarity on exactly what to ask from the Universe.
If you are unsure how to go about this, use the SMART principle, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, and Time-bound.
- Specific: Write down exactly what you want
- Measure: State how you will know that you have manifested your dream
- Actionable: Your dream should be something you can execute
- Realistic: Dream big but do those within the boundaries of reality
- Time: Set a timeline for when you want to achieve your dream
When you are absolutely clear about what you want, you will become excited in anticipation of your new life. You also set the Universe into motion to align the exact people and circumstances that will help to manifest your dreams into reality.
Project What You Want into The Present Moment
Once you are absolutely clear about what you want, the next step is to envision yourself as having already achieved your dream.
This is known as visualization.
This step takes a lot of daily practice. Nonetheless, this is an important step because by creating mental pictures of your dream life, you release limiting beliefs, usher in faith, and create space for new habits that will get you closer to your dream.
Remember, like attracts like. Mental images/thoughts about your great new life will start to actually attract the life that you desire either in quantum leaps or in incremental steps. Either way, you will begin to manifest your dream life.
How to Practice Visualization
See It: A dream or vision board can help you to create mental images of the life you desire.
A simple way to make a vision board is to cut and stick pictures of people, places, or things that embody the kind of life you want and then place this board where you can see it every day.
Speak It: Your tongue has power. You can speak your life into being.
When you speak out your desire, do not phrase it in terms of ‘want’ and ‘need because you will attract more of this. Instead, affirm that you already have what you want now.
If you desire a more toned body, for example, say, “My body is perfectly toned now.’’ Speaking in this tense is a powerful way to visualize your desires.
Act: Like attracts like so if you want to attract a certain kind of life, you must act as if you already have that life.
This can seem weird if you feel like you are pretending to be happy or wealthy or in good shape when you are not. But this is the work you must do to manifest your dreams into reality.
Acting ‘as if’ puts you in a receiving mindset and helps you set a powerful intention. On the contrary, feelings of inadequacy or lack only attract similar feelings.
Acting “as if” is not about deceiving yourself or others. It is about being positive and allowing yourself to believe that your dreams will become a reality.
For example, there is a difference between lying to others or to yourself that you have lost 100 pounds and internalizing the feeling you will experience when you actually lose that amount of weight. You would probably move differently, your eating habits might be different, and you might dress differently.
Do the Things That Will Manifest your Dreams
It is not enough to dream. You must do the work.
The best part about this whole process is that once you are clear about what you want and you begin to visualize your dream life, every action you take will feel inspired, seamless, and joyous.
On the contrary, if you do not know what you want, everything you do will feel like a chore. In the worst-case scenario, you will have no reason to get out of bed and nothing to work towards.
If you are looking to achieve any goal, do the work that is needed for you to achieve this goal. All the while, keep your eyes on the prize and keep visualizing what your life will look and feel like when you achieve your desired goal.
You might find that it helps to ask the Universe to help. When you do, you will see that the Universe will conspire to bring the right people and circumstances into your path to enable you to do the work that is necessary to make your dreams come true.
You must attend to your dream. Nurture it with inspired action.
Trust in Perfect Timing
While you have to play your part to manifest your dreams, you also need to give the Universe a chance to help you actualize the dream.
This means letting go of the ‘how’s’ and the ‘when’s.’ Your job is not to know how your dreams will come true. In fact, when you are trapped thinking about the ‘how’, you pave way for doubt and this blocks you from receiving what you asked for.
A major reason why many of us struggle to manifest our wildest dreams is that we are caught up wondering how these big, far off dreams could possibly become a reality.
Sometimes the dream is so grandiose it looks impossible, so we stop dreaming and start doubting, and our lives remain the same.
So, as you take steps toward achieving your goals, have faith that at the right time, what you desire will come to be. Leave it at that.
The Universe works in subtle ways. You must be receptive to its guidance. This requires self-awareness and being in tune with your own thoughts and feelings.
In the course of your work and as you carry on with your day, you will be nudged to take certain actions. People will cross your path. Circumstances will be created. This is the Universe guiding you closer and closer to actualizing your dream.
Do not be concerned with when things will start to happen or how they will happen. Just do your work and let the Universe conspire for you.
Lastly, nurture the habit of giving thanks for what you already have.
Why is gratitude important?
Practising gratitude helps you to realize that even though you may not be living your dream life, there are still good things about your life.
Gratitude moves you from a mindset of lack to one of abundance. Don’t look around and lament about what you do not have. Start to count your blessings no matter how small they may seem.
Gratitude helps you adopt a more positive attitude towards life. This is crucial.
Positive thoughts and feelings are of a higher vibrational frequency. When you are putting this kind of energy out into the Universe, you attract circumstances, people, and a reality of a higher vibrational frequency i.e. you attract the great things you desire in your life.
It might seem counterintuitive to give thanks when you are not living your best life. But every single person has something to be thankful for, even just the gift of life.
Every day, be thankful for something. Be thankful for having a roof over your head—many people do not have such a blessing.
Appreciate your body—some people have severe injuries while others are too sick to enjoy theirs.
Be thankful for the food you have, your friends, family, pets, clothes, health, and possessions. You are very blessed to have these things.
