5 Key steps on how to manifest your dreams into reality
1. Know EXACTLY what you want
The first step sounds easy, right? But you’d be surprised to hear that very few people know their exact goals.
It’s like you’d like to get a raspberry ice-cream, but you’d just order an ice-cream, and you get a vanilla ice-cream that you hate. The problem isn’t that you didn’t get what you asked for.
The problem is that you weren’t precise while ordering it.
The same logic applies to the universe.
I’ll give you another example from my life that I like to joke about. Many years ago, I was in Hong Kong, resting at the beach. At that time, I was single, and so I decided to write a list of qualities of my ‘dream’ man.
Down onto a paper, I put all the essential qualities – like having the same lifestyle, desire to travel around the world, having my own business, supporting and believing in my dreams, but…
Well, I love sunny and warm climates. But as I didn’t want to keep the list “superficial,” I didn’t add that I’d like him to be from some warm southern country.
Well, a little less than a year after I met my husband. He has all the qualities and much more! But… he comes from the Arctic circle 🙂 So be specific!
You see, if you leave one detail out, you might get something slightly different.
2. Face your fears
The moment you get clear on what you want, the universe will start working on it. But what happens meanwhile is that all your fears (or lack of belief) come to the surface.
Why? Because it’s the part of the process.
For you to have what you want, you need first to clear out the resistance you hold towards that subject.
You can only heal your fears when you’re aware of them. Therefore, they’ll flow into your consciousness, the faster, the stronger your desire is.
This is the most confusing step because it’s easy to give up when all you see are seemingly the reasons why you can’t have it. But since you know that this is the part of the “fun,” you can become present with your negative thoughts and work on them consciously.
3. Embody the vibration of your desire
In order to have something, you must also become it. Since everything is vibrational, you can only attract the same vibration that you have. Like attracts like.
Imagine a very happy person – how likely is it that he’d voluntarily hang out with someone who is gloomy all the time and just complain about their life?
It’s not. The same is true for things in our life.
Anything that you desire has own frequency blueprint. So do you. And your two blueprints must match for you to allow what you desire into your life.
Therefore, this step is about embodying what you want. If you want more money, then embody the frequency of abundance. If you want to find love, then become loving. If you want a bigger house, take care of the place you live in now.
Simply become what you desire. Because then you vibrate at the same frequency, so you become magnetic to your desires.
4. Surrender your wish
Now is the time to let the universe do its thing. You can’t control the outcome anymore if you’ve done the previous steps correctly.
The universe acts through people and situations, so it must rearrange quite many things for you to have what you want.
If you’d hold onto your desire too much, you build up a strong field of resistance around yourself.
Therefore, even if the object of your wish would be ready for you, it couldn’t come nearer to you. You wouldn’t let it.
You know that we all have a selective perceiving, and we perceive only what matches the system of our belief. Therefore, surrendering your wish to the universe is crucial.
It’s a sign of trust that you can have anything you want, and so you’ll have it.
5. Follow your joy
This is an additional step to help you stay in the frequency of receiving. The glimpses of what you’d like to do are, in reality, your inner guidance talking to you.
Your inner guidance sends you subtle signals of what is best for you to do each moment.
We can never see the greater picture of what is best for us to do. But we can always trust our inner guidance because it knows where we’re heading and which lessons we need to understand.
The mechanism through which we receive the guidance is the joy. When you follow it, you’ll automatically get out of your way and align with your highest potential.
