When I was younger, my father always would paraphrase Proverbs 18:21, “Life and death is in the power of the tongue “. As I grew up, I held that scripture in addition to some others to guide me through life. As forward as that quote is, it is very true. We can speak life and death into ourselves, relationships, businesses, and other aspects of our lives. We use our words to manifest our journeys.
What is manifestation?! The best definition I can give is, the act of making your goals, hopes, dreams and wishes come true. It is the act of creation, the ability to bring something to “life”. I will be the first to say that manifesting is not necessarily as easy as ABC - 123. It is a process, there’s WORK involved, sometimes a little more than you bargained for. Let me give some manifestation tips, this is what I do to make my dreams reality.
Step 1: Get clear on what you want.
Be specific. Get as detailed as you can when it comes to manifesting. When I manifest money, I ask for a specific realistic amount that I know I can obtain. If I want to expand my business, I say just that, with hopes the universe places me in the right direction.
Step 2: Ask the universe for what you want once a day makes your requests clearer and clearer.
Speak it into existence! What we say and what we believe really makes the difference. I make my request out loud, sometimes it is overshadowed with doubt (because we are human and sometimes, we can doubt ourselves) and I may have to ask the universe more than once to boost my confidence and belief in what I want.
Step 3: Work toward your goals.
This is sometimes where we do not fully manifest our dreams. It is the Work for me! Look, you could be manifesting some greatness to make your life easier, but it does not mean that "easy" life is going to be "easy" to get. You hear me? Plan of action. How are you going to master your goals? What sacrifices are you willing to make? How uncomfortable are you willing to get? How long are you willing to dedicate? Yea, that is the true work.
Step 4: Trust the process.
Have faith. Believe in yourself. Praise your small victories. Learn from the challenges. Just keep going.
Step 5: Receive and acknowledge what you get.
The universe will give you small doses of where your headed in your manifestation journey. It could be a record week of sales, an amazing date with a potential love, discipline, and so much more. Those things may seem small to the original goal, but it is the universes way of saying you are on the right track.
Step 6: Keep Your Vibration High.
It is important to no self-doubt. It can be destructive. Try your best to not manifest the negativity that may pop in your head. Acknowledge it but then shift your focus into something positive and productive. We cannot help having slump days (because we are human and sometimes life sucks!) but we must have the ability to not allow that negativity fester, so vibrate high!
Step 7: Clear your resistance.
Sometimes when we manifest, we do not realize that we are also changing as a person. Be open to that change. The universe will shift you in a direction that can only benefit you. You may lose friends...hell you might lose yourself a little bit, just do not resist it.
Hopefully, this helps you in your manifestation journey.
Live Long and Prosper
