The 9 Steps to Manifest Effortlessly
In this post:
So this is a little difficult for me to talk about. The instant you mention the word ‘manifesting’ or even ‘The Law of Attraction’ there is a community of business owners who instantly dismiss you and switch off their willingness to learn.
I get it, there are huge swathes of the law of attraction crowd who are nothing short of charlatans and full of wishy washy advice that serves only to confuse people. As an ex Corporate Director I am acutely conscious that these are not statements are that discussed openly in business. But I am also conscious that secretly, the most successful people do believe in the Law of Attraction and use it to their benefit.
So forgive me if this particular post is hard to swallow, but perhaps if you truly wish to be successful you’ll let go of your constricted way of thinking just long enough to truly experience the power of your mind and thoughts.
So Much Confusion
There is so much confusion around this whole manifesting practice, predominantly down to the armies of law of attraction coaches who unfortunately are using watered down versions of the practice to sell their coaching and products to people. Obviously not all coaches are like this, but unfortunately the majority I have come across are so out of alignment I wonder how they sleep at night.
Before I go into these steps, let me just say that I have unconciously created so many experiences in my life that I often talk of being guided from above. There have been so many synchronicities, so many 1 in a million events that I am very conscious of the thoughts I focus on intently now. Am I special? No. But I do believe in the power of something so much bigger than us in this infinite universe that somehow makes anything happen. That in our simple terminology is simply called ‘The Law of Attraction’.
Step 1: You Are More Than Mind And Body
If you’ve ever done any kind of Law of Attraction work in the past you would have heard of the saying “You are an infinite spiritual being having a temporary human experience.” But what exactly does that mean?
This is a big first step in manifesting. This is the absolute key to unlocking it. You need to appreciate that you are more than just a human being, made of flesh, blood and bone.
You have a human body and a human mind. But inside all of this is a consciousness. That consciousness despite decades of research scientists simply are unable to locate in the human body. Does it live in the brain? Does it live in the cells of the body? There’s much debate on this topic which I won’t go into here. But needless to say there is no one that can answer this question. Yet we know we are conscious and consciousness exists.
If consciousness exists and science cannot explain it, where does it come from? Was it put here? Did consciousness just evolve out of the mud? Was it designed or a random occurence through the infinite possibilities of our expanding universe?
I doubt we will ever truly know the answer to this beyond the fact there is something inside us beyond our body and our minds. And that consicousness is incredibly powerful.
The first step to learning to manifest your reality is you must create a new concept of yourself: as an infinite spiritual being having a temporary human experience.
So your job in step 1 is to be conscious of the fact you are more than your body and your mind.
Step 2: Witness your thoughts and emotions
As a consciousness or spirit, you can begin to appreciate your body, thoughts and emotions by simply witnessing them. By experiencing the emotion in the moment you cultivate a practice of mindfulness which switches your brain into a more relaxed gamma wave frequency. This frequency is where many of the original Law of Attraction teachers want you to manifest from. A place of calm, a place of meditation or mindfulness.
On the other side of this, by being conscious of your thoughts and emotions and simply witnessing them you help to detach yourself from being reactive and becoming more proactive in your day to day life.
By this I mean if you’re practising mindfulness and something happens that upsets you, you’ll be able to appreciate and understand what it was that upset you, address it and move on.
As an example, someone calls you fat, it upsets you, and you feel awful for the rest of the day, repeating their cruel words over and over again in your head. With mindfulness you would still experience the hurtful words but perhaps you would understand that the person is struggling with their own issues and deflecting onto you, or maybe you have put on weight and would like to focus on losing some. Either way, the use of mindfulness will help you move past that pain and use it in a proactive manner.
Step 3: The Moment Does Not Define You
When you’re down or things aren’t going too well in life it’s really easy to get lost in the idea that this is how it is going to be forever. But that’s simply not true. Yes things may be less than ideal right now but your life can change in a moment and literally anything is possible. In this place you need to keep reminding yourself that whatever position you may be in, there are always options and ways to improve. The moment simply does not define you.
You can absolutely bring about change, create your desires and manifest your dreams in the future. You are the creator of your world. Believe in the infinite power of you and the divine guidance and you open yourself up to the possibilities of change in an instant. It’s this openness that brings about the change.
Step 4: See Your Dream As Already Real
One of the biggest tenets of the Law of Attraction is to see and feel your desire as already manifested.
That means if you want a Ferrari, your goal everyday is to sit in silence, and visualise it and then feel the emotion of how it will be to actually own it. How does that car smell, how does the door handle feel on your hand, how does the leather seat sound as you climb in, how do you feel when you press that start button and the engine purs into action?
Whilst youre in this state, feeling like you already have it. Feel that gratitude in every cell of your body. Sit in a profound state of gratitude for it daily. Then let it go.
Step 5: Don’t Stray From The Path
If you’ve ever watched any kind of drama or horror film, you’ll know there’s usually some kind of warning to the protagonist that they ignore, leading to a whole host of events that inevitably lead to some gruesome ending.
Straying from your path is unlikely to end in anything quite so dramatic. But you get the point. It’s your journey, it’s your path and do not let anyone else tell you otherwise. Even your family or spouse has no right to tell you what is right for you and what you should or should not be doing. Of course everyone has opinions that they are entitled to but that should not disuade you.
When you trust yourself to decide what is to be your destiny, you don’t allow external distractions to discourage or influence you. If your intention becomes a burning desire it really won’t matter who tells you no, because you will truly do all you can to get what you want. In this space, you cannot help but to bring it about your desires.
Step 6: Thoughts Become Things
I’m sure you’ve heard that quote many times. Thoughts become things. It took me a while to really understand the power of this. Especially after years of working in the manifestation space and creating incredible events as well as managing to destroy them just as quickly.
The thoughts that live in your head, the ones you dwell on are the ones you bring about. It really is that simple.
Now luckily it’s not an instant manifestation game. You can have negative thoughts and not end up bringing about negative events. It’s the thoughts you consistently possess that make the difference.
Not only do those consistent thoughts manifest, but additionally the thoughts you consistently have are the state you actually live in.
If your thoughts are those of annoyance and overwhelm day in day out, guess what your life is going to be like? And conversely if your thoughts are gratitude and happiness how different is your day to day existence going to be?
I know which state I would rather live in! So do yourself a favour whether you believe in manifesting or not. At least do your best to improve the thoughts you have consistently.
This can be done quite easily. It comes through conscious awareness. That means tapping into your thoughts daily. If you feel yourself feeling low all of a sudden, then take some time away to work on why these have come about, create an action plan for change and then spend some time in a place of gratitude. You’ll soon find things shift.
Step 7: Trust The Process
It’s easy to get excited in the beginning when manifesting something. And when things come true you get even more excited about the infinite possibilities you can bring into your life. But what happens if nothing manifests? Then what?
And yes there are many times when things may not come about the way you expect, if at all.
The important thing to remember here is that you are planting seeds when you’re manifesting. You wouldn’t plant a seed and complain its not growing after a day or two and that mother nature is a fraud. You know you have to wait for however long it takes for that plant to grow. You need to give it the right about of water and sunshine and nutrition and even though you cannot see it, beneath the surface there’s magic happening. This is exactly the same as manifesting. Trust the process like you’re planting seeds. And keep consistently watering your dreams and ambitions. And they will grow when they are ready.
Banishing the doubt that this will come to fruition is incredibly powerful in manifesting, realizing this can dramatically increase the speed that change occurs.
Step 8: A Place Of Love
First of all, know that there is no shame in your desires. You absolutely deserve to live a life of joy, happiness and prosperity. You get one chance at this life and I believe you should do all you can to squeeze the joy out of every single moment.
But it’s important to also note that manifesting needs to come from a place of love as well. If you are asking for a house because you want to keep up with the Joneses or you want to make a specific amount of money a year out of spite against a competitor the chances are you’re not going to manifest a single thing.
You need to weigh your desires as coming from a good feeling place and not a place of ego. Ego is entrenched in fear. If you want things to improve your status and not because they are absolutely going to bring you lots of joy. It simply won’t work.
So make sure you’re clear on why you want these things and that they come from a place of love and not fear. The ego is always about winning, overpowering, being better than others, accumulating for the sake of feeling superior, achieving adulation or recognition – stay away from any manifesting in this space.
Step 9: Drop Into Gratitude
The easiest and simplest place to manifest from is a place of gratitude. This is the feeling of already being grateful for all you possess. If you struggle with this, think of how lucky you are to have a roof over your head, food on the table, money in your bank account, a healthy body a mind that can build a business etc. There’s so many things that you can be grateful for in life. You just need to start to look.
There’s something incredibly powerful about being in this state. It’s like the antidote to pain. Always make sure that each day you spend some time in this space. Simply saying thank you for all you already have and thank you for the wonderful things that will come into your life.
The Steps to Manifest
I hope you’ve found these steps useful. I know how frustrating it can be when you’re just starting to learn about the power of manifesting to know whether or not you’re doing it right or if anything is missing.
Let me know if these steps work for you and what you managed to bring into your life.
