5 Things I Wish I Knew About Manifesting Before I Started

Manifesting is easy, right? 🤔

As we continue with #ManifestingMarch, we’ve got more tips for you.

Manifestation isn’t just some easy trick to get what you want. If it was, everyone would be doing it and succeeding. Manifestation is more than that.

When we start manifesting, we learn some things very quickly. As someone who has been there, I have some insight to ease your concerns. 

Are you struggling with your manifestations recently? Do you feel like you’re missing something?

Here are 5 things I wish I knew about manifesting before I started.

What I Wish I Knew About Manifesting Before I Started #1: 

You Have to Align Your Actions with Your Thoughts

Manifestations aren’t just wishing, repeating, and changing nothing else.

You have to take actions that align with your manifestations.

If you want to become a successful author, for example, you have to put your stories into writing, build your online presence, look into a website, weigh the pros and cons of publishing methods, etc. 

You have to build habits; take steps; and find people, places, and opportunities that align with what you want. 

What I Wish I Knew About Manifesting Before I Started #2: 

Believe Your Manifestations Have Already Come True

This is a tricky one, especially when you feel like nothing is going your way and your manifestations are not serving you. But how you feel about what you believe is incredibly important.

Think of manifesting as “the Law of Attraction,” which is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. 

You must believe that you are capable of achieving what you’re manifesting. That mindset shift is incredibly powerful and can get you through the most difficult times.

Take it a step further by living your life and having a mindset as if you’ve already accomplished everything you want.

Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Think of manifestation in the same way: believe you have manifested what you want and live like it’s the truth.

This takes practice, but once again, it’s all about mindset. Envision the life you want. Put everything on a Vision Board so it’s clear to you. 

Without the element of belief, you can have all the tools and techniques in the world, and yet none of it will produce results.

You can do anything you set your mind to. Remember that. From personal experience, it’s a very real and true phenomenon.

What I Wish I Knew About Manifesting Before I Started #3: 

It’s Okay to Stop and Shift Focus

We’re taught to believe that if we really want something, we shouldn’t give up. Knowing when to stop is knowing that the universe has a different plan for us. If you’re feeling defeated, it might be time to pause and shift your focus. 

“There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you’ve had enough.”
- Unknown

Sometimes, what you want is harder to achieve because it isn’t where you’re meant to go. It might sound like fate vs free will, but in reality, it’s all about there being a better path for you.

If you don’t know if it’s time, here are some examples of when you should move on:

  • You know in your gut it’s not going to work.
  • Moving in the direction you want to go is making you depressed.
  • The things that once brought you joy no longer make you happy.
  • You don’t know who you are anymore.
  • What you see as being happy and at peace is no longer this path.
  • When the idea of giving up brings you thoughts of relief.

It may take time to come to terms. Think of it not as failing, but as needing to shift focus. You have found a new path made for you to manifest. Be gentle with yourself.

What I Wish I Knew About Manifesting Before I Started #4: 

Don’t Be Afraid to Have a Do-Over

Giving up on one path does not mean you are done forever.

There are many things that could have made your other journey wrong for you:

  • The Universe has something better planned for you.
  • You didn’t have clear intentions.
  • You didn’t know what you were doing to manifest correctly.

Now is the time to start again and do it right. Be clear about what you want and consistently manifest everything. It isn’t a once-a-week thing – manifesting is daily; it’s a life shift. 

Our Manifesting Journal is perfect for you in this step.

What I Wish I Knew About Manifesting Before I Started #5: 

Your Manifestations Show Up in Ways You Don’t Expect

Whether you’re continuing on the same path or starting over, you need to know that what you ask for doesn’t always show up in ways you expect. 

You have to be open to these things. Consider these as bonuses from the universe; gifts for reaching out to the universe and the universe rewarding you.

Keep an open mind during manifesting. And don’t grip too tightly or it will turn into desperation and you’ll need to start over.

Have patience and be grateful. When you practice gratitude, you open the door for more positive things. Some of these things may even be a part of your manifesting and you don’t even realize it.

Practice gratefulness every day with our Daily Gratitude Journal:

💖Believe in your power and keep being agile. Life is a journey. Enjoy it!💖
