There are a myriad of ways to manifest and while some are more effective than others, it’s important that your heart and mind are in alignment. So, before we get into manifestation techniques you need to try, you need to know HOW to properly manifest.
The truth is that you don’t have to work your ass off to get what you want. Because you need to work a thousand times harder on yourself to bring in your desires.
No matter how hard you work towards your goals, if your mindset isn’t in alignment with what you want to accomplish, it’s not going to happen. Think about this: say, you want a new job.
If you’re consistently telling yourself that you’re not competent enough to get a new job or the job market is too tough right now, guess what? That new job isn’t going to come along.
Even if you think that you do believe good things can come your way, there’s a little voice that’s deeply rooted in your psyche that deems it to be impossible.
Reprogram the way you think
The lack of belief that something can happen for you is because your subconscious mind (the habit mind), which is operating at 95% of the time doesn’t believe you can achieve it.
Whereas the conscious mind, the creative mind, is only working at 5% of the time. So, even if you have a strong desire for something, it’s not going happen so long as your subconscious mind thinks you’re incapable of achieving your desires
So, how do you switch it up to believe in yourself?
You reprogram your subconscious mind. It’s so much easier than it sounds. You can check this out to help you create a habit of believing. You can even use this modality as one of the ma ny manifestation techniques you need to try.
Changing your habit mind is only one way to properly manifest. The next in line is to watch your thoughts because they can make or break your manifestations.
Watch your thoughts
Work out the kinks of your mind. If you want to manifest, you need to have unadulterated belief in yourself.
No, you can’t believe in yourself 100% of the time, but you can’t believe in yourself 10% of the time either.
Every time that some ugly thought surfaces that pushes you in the opposite direction of where you wish to be, allow it.
Don’t push it out without acknowledging it. If you do, you’re only resisting your own emotions. Which will make your manifestations counterproductive.
Once you accept the presence of the negativity, replace it with something positive.
Let me give you an example. We’ll keep the same theme of wanting a new job.
If your mind tells you that you’re too incompetent to get a new job, just let it come in. Now, switch it to something much more positive. Say to yourself, “I am brilliant and the perfect job is looking for me.”
See how much better that sounds?
The more fluent you get in the language of positivity, the more abundance you attract into your life.
Let’s move onto the last and final step of how to manifest before we get into the manifestation techniques you need to try.
Be mindful of your energy
Your thoughts don’t create your reality. Your thoughts create energies which then validates your reality.
So, if you’re trying to manifest while you’re in a crappy mood, the energy that you’re omitting is telling the Universe that you really don’t want what you’re seeking.
What you need to do is clear your energies consistently. Think of it as spiritual hygiene.
If you don’t shower, you won’t be clean. Well, if you don’t give yourself a spiritual cleansing, debris gets built up and will clog over time. It’s super easy to get your energy into alignment with manifesting your wishes.
You can give yourself spiritual cleanses to remove negative energies that have been accumulated with sage, palo santo, copal, or even a selenite wand. To find out how to conduct a cleanse on yourself, read this.
Or you can free up the energy in your body with energy healing. You can check this out.
When your energy is unblocked and positive, you’re closer to vibrating with the energies of the Universe. They don’t speak the same language as we do, they communicate in energy. Get on track with the Divine forces and you will be able to achieve your desires.
Now that you have the HOW covered, let’s move onto the seven manifestation techniques you need to try, shall we?
Different crystals have different manifestation purposes. Nonetheless, they’re a great aid to attracting your desires.
If you’re looking to manifest more money, this is my favorite way.
You’re going to use:
- black tourmaline
The first two crystals are money magnets while the latter are for grounding and spiritual protection.
Before you go to bed, take all four crystals and rub them in the palm of your hands while thinking about the money that you wish to bring into existence along with expressing gratitude for all of the abundance that you already have.
Thank the “powers that be (angels, spirit guides, ascended masters, universe, higher source, etc.)” for having taken the time to listen to you and place all of the crystals onto your wallet and leave them there until morning.
If you want to manifest love, place rose quartz on your nightstand.
If you want to manifest self-love, place rose quartz under your pillow.
Want a deeper spiritual connection with the Divine? Use clear quartz. Carry it with you at all times, either by wearing it or in your pocket or purse.
Looking for empowerment? Carry honey calcite with you at all times.
You can always make a crystal grid if you have enough crystals. You can also make a crystal sigil (one of my favorite ways to manifest).
Crystals are only the first step of manifestation techniques you need to try. Let’s move onto the second step.
Having a box or jar dedicated specifically for your manifestations is such an awesome and easy way to bring about your desires.
Find a box or jar laying around your home and decorate it as you wish. Really allow your creativity to shine through.
What you will need is:
- a box/jar
Here’s what to do:
- Write what you want to manifest on a piece of paper.
- Make sure to write each manifestation on separate pieces of paper. Be as specific and detailed as possible.
- Fold it up
- Put it in the box/jar
It’s so simple and doesn’t require you to have to buy anything or take up too much of your time.
Let’s move onto the third of manifestation techniques you need to try to make your goals come alive.
Manifest with the moon
If you want to deepen your spiritual practices while manifesting, then this is perfect for you.
Before I get into the details, I have to clarify that I manifest with the full moon and NOT new moons. According to ancient wisdom, when the moon is at its fullest, the intuition is most illuminated.
Because our senses are heightened, we have the clarity to see what we really want. Hence, making it a potent and opportune time to work with the divine feminine energies to turn your dreams into reality.
To work with the full moon for manifestations:
- Draw yourself a bath.
- While you’re relaxing, focus on what you want to attract into your life.
- When you get out of the bath, write down your intentions. Be as specific as possible. And make sure to write everything as if you already have it. If you express it for the future, you’re only delaying what you want.
- Take your list of intentions and speak it out loud with conviction to the moon and the Universe.
- Burn the piece of paper and allow the ashes to scatter in the wind.
- Thank the Universe and the moon for listening to your prayers.
Let’s move onto the next way of one of many manifestation techniques you need to try.
Water is a manifestation technique you need to try
Manifesting with water is super easy and free. Not to mention, you drink it every day so you can do this step every day to bring in whatever you want.
Why manifest with water?
It stems from the studies of water based on Dr. Emoto’s findings. A Japanese scientist who was fascinated by the molecular structure of water, he decided to conduct experiments and his findings are pretty extraordinary.
He was able to show that through prayer, music, thoughts, and words, water molecules can and do shape shift depending on how loving or unloving our intentions are.
What does this have to do with how you can manifest with water?
A tremendous amount.
The human body consists of at least 60% water, 31% in the bones, and 73% in the brain and heart (source), age, body mass, and gender all playing a factor.
Take a moment to think about how your thoughts are in direct alignment with your desires. Water molecules change based on how you think and speak. So, all you have to do is speak lovingly with clear intentions for what you want.
Here’s how to set an intention with water.
What you’ll need:
- water bottle
Write an intention:
Those are just some one worded intentions you can write on the piece of paper. If there’s a word you would prefer that is not on the list above, write that down on the piece of paper.
Feel free to write out a detailed manifestation as well. The one worded intentions are just a general concept of what you wish to bring into your life on a broader scale.
Cut the paper and tape it onto your water bottle.
That’s it. It’s so simple. You can also add a little more oomph by saying a prayer to the water.
Every time you take a sip of your water, you’ll be reminded to keep your thoughts as optimistic as possible. Not to mention, the molecular structure is being altered just by the loving words you taped to the water bottle.
Using the environment’s resources, without depleting it of course, is a great way to both manifest and align you more with your surroundings. Keeping in theme with nature, we’re going to move onto the earth, which is the next of manifestation techniques you need to try.
Use the earth
Using the earth to manifest is so awesome because you’re getting a little help from Mother Earth while replenishing her. Essentially, this is so a quid pro quo.
There are a few ways to work with the earth so take whatever modality works best for you:
- You can bury the herbs from the spell above into the ground. If you don’t have a garden or a yard for that matter, just bury it into one of your plants.
- The second way to work with the earth for manifestations is to bury your written intentions. Again, if you don’t have an outdoor space, bury the intentions into one of your plants. You can either burn the paper in a bowl and then bury the ashes or you can bury the paper as is.
- The third and final way is to collect a little bit of earth in a small container.
Once you’ve gotten what you need, cleanse it by waving a selenite wand over it to make sure that all negative energies have been removed.
Then you can recite your manifestations over the earth until you feel comfortable that your energies have permeated into it.
You can keep the earth in your home for up to three days and then pour it back into the ground or one of your potted plants.
The next time you want to manifest, try with Mother Earth to bring in your desires. Let’s move on the next of manifestation techniques you need to try.
Create a spell
This is one of my favorite ways to manifest because you can really explore your creativity with this method. There is no right or wrong spell. You don’t have to follow a grimoire or a set of doctrine to do it the “right” way.
All you need is to follow your intuition with what to put into your spell.
Let me give you an example. I used to manifest with each new moon because that’s what modern day astrology says. On one full moon, my intuition guided me to manifest rather than release. So, that’s just what I did. It was several months later when I found out that the ancients used to manifest with each full moon.
Or I sometimes use black salt or black candles to bring in what I want rather than to release because that’s what I’m being guided to do.
But, if you’re a traditionalist or don’t feel totally comfortable creating a spell from scratch, here’s an awesome spell that I created a while back for manifesting abundance.
To make the spell bag, you’ll need:
- A muslin bag
- 1 tbsp. dried holy basil
- 3 Fresh basil leaves
- 2 Bay leaves
- 1 Star anise
- 1 tbsp. Cloves
- 1 tbsp. Jasmine green tea or 1 blooming flower
- 1 tbsp. Epsom salt
Combine all the ingredients in the bag and tie it securely.
Keep the spell bag under your bed for up to one week to allow it to work its magic. Once the time is up, bury the herbs or put them into one of your plants.
If you don’t have all of the ingredients, don’t worry about it. Put in what you do have on hand and improvise as you go along.
Maybe creating a spell is a bit intimidating or you want something a bit more tangible that you can put on your body. Which brings us to the next step of manifestation techniques you need to try by creating a potion.
Create a potion
Potions are great because you can give yourself a massage or use them as a moisturizer. Which only adds to your self-care routine.
Not to mention, if you’re able to attract what you want, then creating a potion is a no brainer.
This portion is meant to bring in love and luck and it’s so ridiculously simple that you can’t not give it a try.
To make this elixir, you’ll need:
- 2 oz. amber glass bottle with eye dropper
- Rain water
- Aloe vera gel
- 1 Pukka love tea bag with the herbs taken out
You want an amber bottle because you don’t want the sun to infuse into the rain water. Rain water is magical because it’s fresh from the heavens. Next time it rains, collect some for this spell. If you don’t want to wait for the rain or live in an arid climate, just use distilled water.
You can use fresh aloe for this, but you’ll need to add vitamin E oil to prolong the shelf life of the aloe. Which makes aloe vera gel much easier. Just be sure to go organic and get at least 90% aloe when you’re using the gel.
I love Pukka teas because their ethos is amazing and their flavors taste great. You can purchase the Love tea here. I will not receive a commission- I’m just a fan of their teas.
All you have to do is mix about 3 tbsp of the aloe vera gel with 1 tbsp of water in a bowl. You want to make sure that the gel still has a thick consistency. Then add the love herbs and mix well. Spoon the mixture into your glass bottle.
You now have your very own love & luck elixir.
Massage the potion onto your hands at least once a day. The herbs will be sure to get caught onto your hands so just wipe it off with a cloth or paper towel. Don’t wash it off because you will only be washing the potion away.
And there you have it…manifestation techniques you need to try.
Resonance is what’s important when you’re bringing in your desires. If one thing calls to you more than other ways, use what works for you.
Remember when I said that your mindset set is everything? Well, if it isn’t in sync with your intentions, then your manifestations will not happen.
So, make sure that your head and heart are in conjunction with one another when you’re manifesting.
How do you manifest? Let me know in the comments below.
Be sure to share this with anyone that can benefit from this.
See ya soon.
In the meantime, stay zenspired!
