The following is a short excerpt from the Manifestation Manual titled "Manifestation for Beginners".
What Is Manifestation?
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "manifest" as something "able to be seen" or "clearly shown or visible."
The act of manifesting is making something tangible and able to be experienced by the physical senses.
Our ideas, dreams, and goals all exist in the fifth dimension. They live in our minds. Manifestation is the process where we make them three-dimensional realities.
Manifestation consists of aligning yourself with your goal so it can express itself in the physical world.
Today, many New Age schools use this term to refer to the strategies to materialize a goal by focusing their thoughts and emotion on the desired outcome.
Manifestation for Beginners
Manifestation may be easier than you think. There are different methods to manifest, but they all rely on the same principles.
You must first set an intention if you wish to manifest your goals.
We all have aspirations. However, if you want to see them come true, you must be specific.
For example, if you say: "I want money," you are being overly general. What amount of money do you need? What are your plans for that money?
You must also ensure that your aspirations stem from your heart rather than your ego. Why do you want that sum of money? Is it going to make you happy? Is it truly necessary? Are you trying to make up for a feeling of emptiness?
It will manifest if it originates from your heart. The energy of your heart is the most potent in your body. Don't let your ego or fear control your manifestation.
Also, If you try to manifest negative things, it can have negative consequences. Remember that everything you send to the universe, you will receive it ten times more powerful.
Now here is one of the essential parts of manifestation: Raising your vibration is crucial.
We are all vibrating at a specific frequency. When you align with the frequency of what you want to manifest, you will attract it.
There are many ways to raise your vibration.
The most effective way to raise your frequency is to meditate. Our minds always have negative notions. However, we can calm the mind by meditating.
Peace is the emotion with the highest frequency. We can achieve that level through meditation.
It may be tough at first, but once you start practicing meditation regularly, it becomes second nature.
If it's difficult for you to sit still, start with one, two, or three minutes. Sit down, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Inhale deeply, hold your breath, exhale, hold your breath again.
Try to remain in that state for as long as you can.
Then progressively increase the amount of time you spend meditating. Decide on a set time of day to meditate. Make it five, ten, or thirty minutes, but don't find excuses to avoid it. It can seriously change your life.
Mantras are words or sounds that influence one's mind, physical body, or subtler bodies. Buddhist monks and Hindus employ them for meditation.
Mantras are incredibly powerful due to the high vibration of their sounds. You tune yourself to that frequency when you chant mantras. They make your whole body vibrate.
You can experiment with a variety of mantras. "OM" is one of the most popular chants.
You can use them to manifest during meditation but there are mantras for many different purposes. For example, the mantra "Om gam ganapataye namaha" is for removing obstacles in your path. Mantras like "Om Hreem Shreem Kleem Maha Lakshmi Namaha" will help you manifest wealth and success.
Food, as everything in the universe, is energy. Each food has a unique vibration.
Of course, natural, organic, healthy food such as green vegetables, have a higher vibration.
Processed food has a very low vibration.
Remember, you are what you eat. Try to eat as healthy as possible.
You can't materialize anything from a feeling of scarcity. You must believe that you have that thing, and the universe will find a way to give it to you. For that reason, you must connect yourself with the feeling of abundance.
If you don't have any money, how can you materialize it? If you're lonely, how can you manifest a loving relationship? If you despise your current job, how can you manifest your ideal job?
Be thankful for what you already have and express your gratitude to the universe. Be grateful for the food you eat and the money you receive in whatever form. Be thankful for the love you've received from your loved ones. Be appreciative of all of the possibilities for success that life provides.
Mindfulness is similar to meditating while keeping your eyes open.
The mind is frequently bouncing between future tasks and experiences from the past. As a result, many people experience anxiety, tension, depression, and other negative emotions.
But you can find peace if you are aware of the present moment if you are truly here and now.
If you can find serenity in the present moment, you must be vibrating at a very high level.
Nature can harmonize us, raising our vibration and supporting us to regain balance. With all of the stress, city life might cause you to lower your vibrations. That is why visiting natural places and recharging is so vital.
So go to the beach, park, or wherever you want to put your feet on the ground. If you can't, get some crystals, put some houseplants around you, or adopt a dog or cat. They can assist you in cleansing your aura and raising your vibration, thus helping you in manifesting a joyful life.
Visualization is an effective manifestation method. All you have to do is envision what you want to materialize. For example, if you desire a new laptop, picture yourself using it.
When you visualize, you must include powerful emotions. Feel as if you already manifested what you want. Emotion is a form of energy. It's the key to this technique's success.
There are plenty of other methods to help you to manifest. Use what feels best for you.
You should, of course, take action. Expect to put in some effort if you want your manifestation to occur. Some manifestations can appear without doing anything, but it doesn't always happen.
You must move things in the physical world so the universe can do its magic.
If you want to manifest your ideal house, for example, you can imagine it. You could apply metaphysical methods such as positive affirmations or scripting. You should, however, go out and find it.
You should go out and look for your dream job if you want to manifest it.
When you do this, you are allowing yourself to be open to all of the opportunities that the universe will provide to you.
When you seek ways to receive something, you align yourself with the energy of your manifestation. You allow it to come to you.
Fear and anxiety stunt any manifestation.
We vibrate low when we are fearful or anxious, and this echoes in our reality.
It's not about getting everything you desire when it comes to manifesting. Our ego is sometimes the one who craves things.
Manifestation is all about raising your vibration so that your outer reality reflects your inner reality. It's all about allowing yourself to be blessed by the universe.
Sometimes not getting what you want is a gift. Know that the universe and your Higher Self know precisely what you need and will always provide it If you are open to it.
