Manifestation used to be something that only a small subsection of the population talked about. It was not openly discussed and seemed to be one of those mystical things that eccentric free-spirited people believed in.
People that viewed themselves as logical and realistic dismissed the idea that we could manifest our own destinies as make-believe.
Then books like “The Secret” and “The Law of Attraction” by Abraham Hicks started to open the world’s eyes to the possibility that we are have the power to achieve our wildest dreams.
Manifestation happens when you have specific goals and use belief, visualization, affirmations and action to reach them.
It takes practice and dedication, but once mastered, can be the difference between falling short and finally getting the results you want.
To get started, let’s talk about exactly how to manifest a better life for yourself.
How to manifest a better life in 5 simple steps
1. Get specific about what you want.
When setting goals, it’s easy to be vague. Wishing to be rich or famous or to find love sounds good, but none of these pinpoint exactly what you want.
How rich is rich? Do you want to be movie star famous or social media influencer famous? Who are you hoping to find love with?
Everyone has their own unique idea about what would enhance their lives. What would constitute a better life for you?
Try being clear about your desires. If you want a million dollars, say that. If you need a supporting and healthy mate, set your sights on that. Rather than wishing for a promotion, go for the Director role.
Understand how reaching these milestones will change your life so you know the purpose behind your aspirations.
Write your ambitions down, along with the anticipated outcomes you desire, so you keep them top of mind.

2. Ask for what you want… and keep asking until you get it.
This is where the Law of Attraction comes in. It’s important that you request what you need from the universe.
How you ask for what you want is up to you. Some people pray on it. Others sit quietly and speak it into the air or meditate silently.
You can write it down or clip images that represent what you are striving for from magazines and paste them on a vision board.
However you choose to do it, you must visualize what you want and call it into existence daily.
3. Do your research, plan, and get organized.
There is an old saying that nothing comes to dreamers but dreams.
Manifesting is not just hoping and wishing. It requires an understanding of what is necessary from you to receive what you want. You must know what is stopping you from getting to where you should be and how to overcome those obstacles.
If you want to become a doctor but aren’t qualified, you need get an education. If you want to develop a healthier relationship with your spouse or kids, you may need to work on yourself.
Whatever it is that will help you get to your desired destination needs to be understood and documented.
Lay out the steps you need to take to do so and schedule your time to allow for them. Then organize anything related to your plan in an easily accessible location for reference.
