What is Manifestation?
Alright, before you start thinking this article is a bunch of witchcraft, mumbo jumbo, foo foo stuff, let’s talk about what manifestation even means. To manifest something, you believe that it will be brought into your life. That doesn’t mean it will appear the way you expect.
Actually, I would say more often than not; it doesn’t happen the way you expect. However, being open-minded and understanding, you will reach your destination no matter what will help you overcome any obstacles that get in your way.
Alright, let’s take a look at what I think are the 7 Steps on how to manifest anything you want out of life.
Choose What You Want to Manifest
It would help if you started somewhere. The first step on your manifestation journey is knowing what it is you want. Get pretty specific and determine what it is you want in your life.
You can ask for more than one thing at a time. The journey to the new future is not a single path. Likely you will find that your multi-layered goals and aspirations will blend.
Since they likely represent the core beliefs you hold or your ultimate desires, it makes sense they would be aligned, and they need to be. This is the foundation of manifestation and ensuring your aspirations and goals work together.
Make sure the things you are manifesting are in alignment. You can not want a job only available in Alaska and live on an island in the Caribbean. Unless you plan to split your time between the two places… if so, then go for it. If not, those won’t work together. Makes sure you know what you really want? But other than that, feel free to dream and dream big.
If you have hung out with me before you have probably heard my vision board story but here is a quick recap. I was working with a business coach back in 2016 who told me to try a vision board. To be frank, I thought she was crazy but I humored her.
The rules she outlined were that I had to pick 6 items to put on the board and that I had to look at the vision board at least once a day. Since I’m a digital person, and there was no way I was cutting out many weird phrases and pictures of the perfect house, I downloaded an app and set 6 visual goals.
I picked 6 goals I didn’t think I would ever really accomplish to prove her wrong. After all, what was the worst that could happen? If we were going journey through manifestation, we might as well make it good.
Because I’d be nosy and want to know…
Here is what was on my list:
- A new house
- A new car
- Earn enough in my side business to pay for and attend a business conference
- Schedule a trip to Hawaii
- Purchase all new furniture
- Get a work promotion
Well, a funny thing happened… by May of 2018, I had accomplished all of those things. This didn’t happen overnight and not in the order I would have expected, but everything happened. I was floored; maybe this manifestation experiment really worked. I think you will be surprised too. Even if it doesn’t work, what do you have to lose by trying?

If we are really going to learn how to manifest anything, we need to know and truly believe in what we are working towards. Find an amazing set of affirmations and repeat them to yourself regularly.
All of your affirmations should be written as if you already accomplished them. Not only is this an intentional reminder of what you want, but it’s also a declaration to whatever in the universe is listening to bring what is needed into our lives. Manifestation can’t happen if you don’t know what you are asking for. Let’ your intentions be known.
Likewise, business affirmations reaffirm the goals and desires you want in your business and should be considered as well. Don’t give up on yourself; set some affirmations, and get going. If you need help knowing the direction you want your business to take, make sure you have a good set of business priorities determined.
Figuring out what tasks are actually priorities will help you manage your time most effectively. This is harder than it sounds. That is why I’ve created a workbook to help you figure this all out. Let’s get your actual business and life priorities straightened out.
If you are into coloring (and be honest, we are all into coloring), my friend Elizabeth over at The Well Prepared Mom has some great affirmation coloring sheets you can get for free.

Taking Steps Forward (Towards Goals)
In other words, if you want to figure out how to manifest anything you can’t just sit back and expect it to happen. You still need to put in the work. Take deliberate steps towards your goals and see the amazing results.
The best way to take steps forward is to figure out how to maximize your time. There are a number of things to consider such as what are your priorities, what things can you give up, and what processes work best for you.
Once you have a good grasp of your goals and your time, you can truly start to see progress happening right before your eyes. In addition to setting goals it’s important that you are making sure they are SMART goals.
Why is having SMART goals important?
SMART goals ensure that you are setting goals you can actually measure. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely which is the exact criteria needed to have a goal you can accomplish.
If your goal is too general, you will never know if you met the measurement. If your goal is not attainable, you will only feel sad you didn’t accomplish it, which leads us down a negative path we don’t want.
If your goal is for the next 20 years, you will likely give up on it because you won’t see results. Now you can make goals that support others, so you are marching towards a bigger goal. But take consideration of the ability to stick to them and measure your success.

You can’t take without giving back. You should find many ways to give back on your journey to learn how to manifest anything, but the easiest is to do random acts of kindness.
It takes so VERY little to make someone’s day. Be conscious of what is going on around you, and do things, little things that make someone’s life just a tiny bit easier. Open the door, pick up garbage, walk the extra two steps to put something away.
Stay Positive – Gratitude
Finding what we are grateful for in every moment can be exhausting. Plus, bad things happen. And sometimes life sucks… We don’t want to experiment with manifestation if we get sucked into the bad things.
BUT the good news is that you control how you think about things. Your brain works by associating your thoughts with emotions. You can choose your emotional responses based on what you think. Stopping the negative responses is something you need to stay positive and learn gratitude towards the things you do have.
Choose to think about pieces that give you a positive reaction. Remember that you can’t experience the highs of life without knowing what the lows feel like. Need some extra help at work? Check out these great ideas to stay positive around your coworkers.
Staying positive all the time is impossible, but you can change your mindset to be more positive in your everyday interactions. Join our challenge to create a more positive YOU!
Be Open to Opportunities
Let’s break this down with a recent real-life example. I want to start something new in my business, but I don’t really have the time right now to make that happen. It requires research, setting up some new services, and promotion. All of those things take time.
A couple weekends ago I thought about this a lot and figured that I really should give up one of my current clients to make room for this new growth. But I was really torn; I didn’t want to give up any of my clients.
The following Monday, I get an email from one of my current clients, telling me that she needs to take a step back. Now I could have been outraged and upset that I just lost a source of income, but this is actually a blessing. I had to stop and say… “Well, Hello, Door of opportunity!”
Now I will have time to set up that business service I want to start offering.
When a new door opens, walk through it. Embrace the opportunities even when they are disguised. Not every opportunity will appear like this and be super obvious. Look for the small, unexpected opportunities too.

Yes, You Can Manifest Anything
So does all this mean that I can manifest love too? Yep, it really does. There are no limits to the laws of attraction and manifestation other than your own self imposed limitations. Learning how to manifest anything is often a case of figuring out how to get out your own way.
Limiting yourself is a major contributor to not meeting goals and feeling defeated. Manifestation is really about how to overcome all of that. Find your confidence again, believe in yourself, and that you can learn how to manifest anything.
That includes all the things that you value.
And Moolah? Show me the money!
You don’t really think I can manifest money do you?
Yes, you can learn how to manifest anything. Even Money!
Again this doesn’t mean you get to purchase a Disney Fastpass and cut the line and immediately see results. Manifestation means you need to know what you want, declare it, repeat it so you know what you are working on, and actually do the work.
Did you catch that? You will still have to work towards your goals.
Fast Track to making the Law of Attraction work
Alright, let’s figure out how we can make this all work and work fast. Learning how to manifest anything isn’t about making it happen tomorrow. The truth is that depending on your goals and aspirations; manifestation may not be fast. I feel like mine worked pretty quick, and I took 2 years to accomplish 6 goals.
Since then, I’ve had goals come quickly, and some have been on my board for years, with no end in sight. That doesn’t mean I have given up on them; I need to keep working on them. I need to put in the work to guide me towards the things I have decided I want.
So what can you do?
Believe in yourself. Manifestation works best when you believe they will come true.
Know what you truly want and set out to achieve it.
