How To Quickly Manifest Something In 3 Simple Steps

The number one question I get asked in the spiritual community is:

How do I manifest something or someone?

And does manifesting truly work?

Here’s the simple truth:

Much of the information you’ll find from spiritual influencers and “gurus” when it comes to the law of attraction and how to manifest what you truly desire doesn’t work at all.

That’s because the majority of spiritual advice focuses on how to change your thoughts, which is like trying to get your car to start by focusing on the tires.

If you want to manifest your reality, you need to focus on raising your vibration by following these 3 simple steps:

  1. Focus On Your Emotions
  2. Be Grateful
  3. Take Real Action

1. Focus On Your Emotions

If you’ve ever read the blockbuster book, The Secret, then you know that most manifestation programs focus on affirmations.

The basic idea is that if you want to attract something into your life, you need to think about it all the time, and direct all your focus and energy towards it.

This basically breaks down to: always think about what you want. And don’t think about what you don’t want.

Sounds simple, right?

It is. Too simple.

Here’s why that’s not enough:

Everything (including us!) is energy. And all that energy vibrates at a certain frequency.

As part of the infinite and powerful consciousness of the universe, our energy is attracted to other energies with the same vibration.

In quantum physics, this is known as “like attracts like”.

But it’s not our thoughts that send out these vibrational frequencies. It’s our emotions.

Just think of the word emotion itself, which means “energy in motion”!

Every emotion vibrates at a different frequency. Lower vibration emotions include fear and hate. High vibrations are joy, vibration, etc. with love being the highest vibration of all.

We have hundreds of thousands of passing thoughts every day. They come and go like the weather. But they are not attached to any vibration unless they reflect a particular emotional state.

So if your emotions don’t line up with your thoughts, you won’t be able to create what you want.

The real power of thoughts comes from their ability to help us take action. For example, negative thoughts can become a self-fulfilling prophecy because it leads us to do things that are self-destructive.

But when we believe we can actually do something, then we are more likely to put ourselves in the position to actually do it!

The bottom line is that how you feel about something is extremely important when you try to manifest something.

Start by convincing yourself that you truly deserve what you are trying to manifest and that you are fully capable of getting it.

Instead of just affirming that you want something, feel how wonderful it will be when you actually get it. Fill yourself with all the emotions you will have when the thing you want occurs, and feel it as if it is happening right now.

Don’t just tell yourself it’s going to happen. Feel it happen.

2. Be Grateful

The fastest way to manifest anything you want in your life is to be grateful for what you already have.

That’s because gratitude is a very fast amplifier to raise your vibrational energy very quickly.

However, many people fail to make gratitude a regular daily practice or they don’t quite master it the right way to really make it effective.

The secret is you have to practice gratitude on things that you are actually truly grateful for.

You can’t try to convince yourself that you’re grateful for something when you don’t actually feel that way.

For example, if you’re able to find a parking space quickly in a grocery store parking lot, you may feel a little bit happy. But are you truly grateful? If not, trying to focus your gratitude practice on the great parking spot will not net any real manifestation.

Instead, think of the things you already know are real blessings in your life. What are you blessed to have that many others don’t?

Don’t just think it. Really get deep into your feelings and FEEL how wonderful and lucky you are.

Another great trick is to find the good in things you used to embrace with self-pity or negativity. Whatever areas in life you are struggling with or stuck in, give it gratitude. You’ll be amazed how turning the stress of things that worry you into thanks will create peace and calm…and help you manifest things faster.

Whatever is happening…LOVE IT. See the opportunity in it. See the lessons it is here to bring you.

Our manifestation practice often fails because we spend so much time complaining about things when we aren’t actively practicing gratitude.

But when you start to see miracles everywhere, even the places you might think at first are “problems”, then the act of generating more miracles starts to become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

You’ll start seeing fast changes to your life when gratitude becomes a daily habit.

The next step is to start feeling grateful for the things you don’t even have yet. The key is to act as if you already have exactly what you want.

Give thanks through every cell of your body…because you already have it!

Finally, start a gratitude journal. For just a few minutes at the end of each day, jot down a list anything and everything you can think of that you can be grateful for that happened to you that day.

3. Take Real Action

Now that you’re able to manifest properly with emotion and you’re taking time to practice gratitude every day, you have to actually take some steps to go after what you’ve been visualizing in your manifestation practice.

This means listening to your intuition to put you in the path with people and situations that match the higher vibration you have been creating for yourself.

From now on when you take action on anything, make it because something inside you told you to do it. I’m talking about your gut feeling. Or maybe you experience it as a tiny little nudge or voice from yourself.

Most likely, you won’t even know why you feel like you should do something, but a strong feeling or desire pushes you to take action on something.

For example, you wake up and hear a voice inside you telling you to go for a bike ride today. The thing is…you hardly ever ride your bike and maybe it’s been a year or so since the last time you hopped on your bike.

Nonetheless, you choose to listen to that inner voice and take that bike ride. Next thing you know, you are waiting for a red light and another biker pulls up next to you who happens to be the exact right connection for your career at that moment. Someone you would have never met, or had the chance to actually talk to, if you hadn’t taken that bike ride.

This is the kind of action I’m talking about. It’s not a “to do” list or plan. It’s being open to listening for and following a feeling and inner urge inside you.

It’s important not to focus too much on the “how” something will happen. Let the Universe take care of the “how”. It’s your job to put yourself in the right places and positions to receive…and surrender to whatever comes your way.

That said, you can’t just sit idly by and expect things to happen.

That phone call you’ve been putting off, that networking event you didn’t feel like attending…this is where you have to step over the line of inaction to make sure you’re taking advantage of any possible opportunities that come your way.

Be sure to focus on the energy you put behind your every action. It’s important that your intentions match your vibration.

For example, you should be fully open to experiencing a positive outcome from that phone call. And no matter how the call goes down, you maintain your gratitude for the experience.

Notice that I didn’t see you should “expect” a particular outcome. That’s a recipe for failure because it sets you up to possibly experience a low vibrational frequency of disappointment.

So rather than expecting any specific result, let the universe lead the way.

How To Manifest Wrap Up

Manifesting doesn’t “just happen” because you think positively about something or visualize great things.

It only happens consistently when you tap into your feelings, practice gratitude daily, and take action on the things your inner voice guides you to do.

You can also use various manifestation programs and tools to help speed this process along.

Believe that your dreams will come true, act as if they already have come true and act accordingly. This is when the real “miracles” occur on the regular, even though you know they aren’t really miracles at all!
