What do you desire? Lasting love? A fulfilling, high-paying career? A healthy body?
The secret is out there: you can manifest all of this and more if you follow a few simple tips.
1. Meditate daily
If you don’t already have a meditation practice, there are hundreds of free resources available at your fingertips to get you started. All you really need is a quiet place for ten minutes a day to get in tune with your mind and body. The most common meditation practice involves sitting still and focusing on your breathing, redirecting all of your thoughts to the sound of your breath. After you get good at this, you might incorporate some imagery: a picture of yourself happy, healthy, wealthy, successful, in love, whatever your dream may be. What does it look like? How does it feel? Get as specific as you possibly can. Keep this image in your mind every time you meditate. This image is what you will manifest.
2. Journal daily
There are many ways to journal. It can be as creative or as simple, as messy or as neat as you like. The point is that you have a space to record your successes, failures, emotions, goals, etc. It is particularly helpful to write down your vision for the future, and continue to revisit and adjust it as necessary. When you put words to the page, you are physically bringing your hopes and dreams into the world. It’s only a matter of time before they become a reality.
Don’t think you have time to journal? Set a goal to journal for five minutes a day. Thats five minutes less of scrolling through Instagram. Chances are, you’ll have so much to write about you’ll end up writing for ten, twenty minutes or more.
3. Make a vision board
Are you more of a visual person? Just like journaling, creating a vision board is a way to physically reveal your dreams to the universe. There are various ways you can create your own vision board. Essentially, vision boards are a display of pictures, items, words, symbols, etc. that represent what you envision for your own future. Put it in a place where you will see it every day, and you will never forget the goals you have created for yourself. Each year you can adjust your board according to your changing goals.
4. Read daily
There are thousands and thousands of books out there containing all the knowledge you need to achieve your goals. Money goals? There’s a book for that. Relationship goals? There’s a book for that. Career goals? There’s a book for that too. Anything you could possibly need to know is available to you for free with a library card. The knowledge you gain from reading just might spark an idea to set your goals in motion. What are you waiting for?
5. Make a deal with Chrysanthemum, the goddess of manifestation (who also happens to be the goddess of death, social anxiety, computer networking, that feeling you get when you swear you’re forgetting something, and flowers)
This strategy should ONLY, and I repeat, ONLY be used when you have exhausted all other options for manifesting the life of your dreams.
In order to summon Chrysanthemum, you first need to make an offering. How does one make an offering to a goddess, you ask? Well, you can start first by creating an altar of all the human things Chrysanthemum likes (baked beans, singer/songwriter Shakira, corgis, and Zoo Tycoon 2 are just a handful of many). Once the altar is complete, wait until 3 a.m. and pour thirty bottles of honey all over it. If luck is on your side, Chrys will appear in a couple of hours. If luck is not on your side, you will need to wait until the next morning at 3 a.m. and behead a goat in front of the altar. That ought to make her appear for sure.
Now that you have Chrys in front of you, it’s time to make the deal. What? Did you think the offering would be enough? First, Chrys will ask you what you want. This is when you say “I want ___ (insert description of life of your dreams here)”. Then, Chrys will ask you what you’re willing to sacrifice. It has to be something major. Some examples of what Chrys has accepted in the past: a set of your limbs (either an arm and an arm, a leg and a leg, an arm and a leg, or a leg and an arm), your firstborn child, the ability to love, the ability to use a microwave, etc. Take some time to negotiate, but don’t take too long or else Chrys will get angry and probably curse you with having to experience that feeling that you’re forgetting something 24/7 for the rest of your life and then vanish without giving you a single thing you asked for.
If all goes well, you’ll get the life of your dreams without having to mess with all that meditation, journaling, vision board, reading bullsh*t ever again!
I hope you will all implement these strategies to get the life you deserve. Let us know if you have any other tips for manifestation in the comments below!
