We have all heard about how thoughts can become things, but people often understand this as taking action on what you’re thinking. While this is also part of the idea, they miss the bigger picture of how just thinking about very specific thoughts will manifest those ideas in your day-to-day life. This is broadly known as manifesting your thoughts but simply thinking about them is not enough.
To get the most out of this process, you need to know how you can optimize your thoughts so they will materialize accurately and quickly into a tangible reality. If you are interested in learning how manifestation can help you get the life you have always dreamed of, here are four important things to keep in mind.
1. Overcome Your Thoughts
Our brains and minds are scattered with thoughts throughout the day and throughout our lives. The biggest problem is that some of these thoughts are directed and deliberate but a vast majority of these thoughts are random ideas that come up in our minds. We don’t directly try and think about these things, but they do come up. A large portion of these uncontrolled thoughts are fears. These stem from the subconscious mind and are made up of the many things that you say to yourself, think to yourself, assume, and even believe at a very deep level.
While they may seem absurd, they are in some way connected to your subconscious and conscious mind. The first thing to do is to gain control over the subconscious mind so you can start to gain control of the kinds of thoughts you process. More importantly, you need to become very receptive to the kinds of thoughts that are going through your head so you can discard negative thoughts instantly. You don’t even want to wait for the thought to germinate and start to develop. As soon as you feel like you are going down a train of thought which feels negative or will result in some kind of negative emotion, kill it instantly.
2. Define Your Wants
With the negative thoughts out of the way, you need to start focusing on the positive. This is not just about thinking positive things, but about really feeling these good emotions and visualizing the positive reality you want. A thought can be a brief moment in your mind but when you start to focus on this, it becomes a reality that your mind is in all the time. You start to look at the world in a different way.
You don’t only want to be in a more optimistic state of mind but you need to be able to make these positive thoughts quantifiable and measurable in some way. If you want to know how do you manifest someone, you need to know exactly the kind of person you’re looking for. Rather than having a vague idea about this person, write down the specific traits and characteristics they possess. This will help you give structure to your thoughts so you have a clear picture in mind when you think of this person. Just saying ‘I want a better job’ is a very open-ended statement. Having a specific description will help you and the universe find opportunities that exactly meet those needs. Get a journal and start to write down the different things you want to manifest in your life and try to be as specific as possible.
3. Tell The Universe
Different people have different ways in which they tell the universe exactly what it is that they want. For some, this might mean putting a piece of paper with all their desires in a bottle and throwing it into the sea. Some might want to note this down in a journal and write it a hundred times before going to bed. Others might want to pray to a deity and discuss these things during prayer. There is no right or wrong way to do this, it is about what feels right to you and what makes you feel like you’re making a strong connection with the universe and the celestial beings.
Just like how there are no right or wrong definitions of a great job, you can choose to communicate with the universe however you wish. The important thing is that you find a way and practice this routine consistently. Doing it once every 3 months will not do anything. For some people, the process can take weeks, for some months, for others years. Consistency is what will get you what you want. Try out a few different things and see what works for you.
4. Play Your Part
Your mind is clear, your desires and defined and you’re practicing connecting with the universe. You still have to go out and do what you can to achieve what you want. If you want a better job, you still need to look at different job postings, apply, go in for interviews, and soon you will come across something that meets your exact needs.
The universe can’t deliver all your desires to your doorstep, but it can alter your environment so that those desires become realities through different avenues. You still have to walk those avenues and explore different options to see what the universe has in store for you. You need to put yourself in a place where the right situation can find you rather than just hoping it will show up on the same path that you have always taken.
Manifesting your thoughts is about a mixture of quantity and quality. Thinking about your thoughts often and taking action on those thoughts on a regular basis and to the best of your abilities is the fastest way to make them a reality. When you start out, you shouldn’t have a time frame in mind. You may want certain things by a certain time but that doesn’t mean that the universe is bound to deliver. Sometimes it will take longer, sometimes it will be surprisingly sooner. In either case, the objective is to consistently do this practice as long as you can to the best of your abilities. There is no shortage of resources in the universe. Soon you’ll have what you want.
