Do you have to meditate in order to manifest?
This is an age-old question that many who follow the Law of Attraction ask themselves. When you’re trying to manifest a goal, it’s natural to get anxious or wonder if you’re taking the right steps. You want to make sure you’re doing it right to avoid having to put energy into another attempt.
So what does meditation have to do with manifesting?
Manifesting is equal parts focus, definition, visualization, and mindful action. Each part is heavily interconnected with the other, and all parts lead back to one hub: Your mind.
When you don’t meditate, there are a multitude of things that could happen. Here are some starting possibilities when it comes to a lifestyle that doesn’t include meditation:
- Lack of clarity and focus
- Inflammation from stress
- Blood pressure problems
- Hindered ability to make decisions
- And more.
Already, that list of negatives is affecting how you make the magic happen and see your goals to the finish line.
Research suggests that through the practice of meditation, practitioners may see reduced blood pressure, anxiety and depression, and even insomnia.
According to the National Center For Complementary & Integrative Health, there are many types of meditation. However, there are four elements that each meditation type has in common:
- A quiet place
- A comfortable posture
- A focus of attention
- An open attitude
“There are many types of meditation, but most have four elements in common: a quiet location with as few distractions as possible; a specific, comfortable posture (sitting, lying down, walking, or in other positions); a focus of attention (a specially chosen word or set of words, an object, or the sensations of the breath); and an open attitude (letting distractions come and go naturally without judging them).” - NCCIH
How Meditation Improves Manifesting
When your mental wellness is attended to and you give yourself the right amount of TLC, things will be easier to manifest. Here’s a metaphor to help break it down.
It’s called The Mirror Metaphor.
Imagine you took a really hot shower. When you got out of the shower, the steam coated your bathroom mirror. You can’t see anything in the mirror at this point. This is what we’ll equate to your mind without meditation.
But you’ve got to get ready, right? You have to be somewhere by a certain time and you need a mirror to do what you’ve got to do before heading out the door.
So you take your hand or cloth and wipe the condensation off of the mirror. We’ll equate this act to your mind with meditation.
If you want to manifest and reach your goals, you have to give yourself the clarity and ability to visualize what that goal looks like.
Where do I start if I’m new to meditating?
Grab a journal that’s focused on positive journaling. After you fill out a page each day, turn on some soothing music and take deep breaths, meditating about everything you’ve journaled. You can also meditate about what you’re grateful for.
