According to author Angelina Lombardo, manifestation begins with knowing what you want. Once you remember these goals, you mentally shift to a place where you can face setbacks properly. From there, you will figure out how to manifest achieving your goals.
If you have faced many challenges in this pursuit, it can be difficult to remember what you want. It takes quite an involved process to manifest in 2022, and here is how to ease into that mindset:
1. Reveal the Underlying Issue Behind Your Blocks
Start reflecting on the setbacks that are stopping you from achieving your goals. Why are they preventing you from success? Do these setbacks have more to do with your attitude, or are physical or practical events getting in the way of moving forward?
Knowing the differences and assessing the whole situation will help you better understand how to take the first step and overcome the hurdles ahead.
2. Differentiate Between Your Ego and Intuition
When facing a big problem, two voices tend to speak to you in your head.
The first one is ego, also known as that constant rambling in your head. It is the first thing that comments on anything and everything when you are thinking. While your ego is there to protect you, it is informed by other forces such as your past experiences—and can include those that empower and hurt you. Those hurt tend to have an ego that sounds like a bully or insults one’s self-esteem.
The second one is intuition. It is everything your ego is not. It stays quiet as your ego reacts immediately to a situation. It takes time to make itself known. Intuition is also physically felt – like when your body is exhausted from working too much. It reminds you what you need to do. You physically feel what the mind and soul need, even if it means slowing down.
Your key to progress is knowing which voice is speaking to you at any given moment to manifest what you want or need, not simply react to what is around you.
3. Inspire Yourself to Feel Good
Doing things that make you feel good lets you draw inspiration from the universe. It will further empower you as you pursue your manifestations. In other words, feeling good helps you gather the necessary energy inside yourself and build the strength you need to move toward the goals that you have set.
Best of all, feeling good does not have to be a grand gesture. It can be as simple as taking the time to do things you love, like taking walks, reading a book, or seeing friends.
4. Incorporate Simple Meditation into Your Routine>
Meditation is one of the best ways to quiet down the ego and listen to your intuition. This practice helps you refocus your breath and mind to settle into a calmer place physically and emotionally. By sitting down and paying attention to your body, you focus on the present and gain a better perspective of where you are at and where you must go.
There are also other benefits of meditation that help with manifestation. One is increasing self-awareness so that you know how to address a situation. Another benefit, is reducing your negative emotions to lessen your stress and feelings of toxicity. The practice of meditation also teaches you patience and tolerance, two attitudes that help in enduring the challenges that are keeping you from your goals.
5. Be Open to Receiving Blessings from the Universe
Not everything is within your control. As such, the best you can do is focus on what is within your control and let other things run their course. Once you let go of what you cannot control, you open yourself to more blessings from the universe. Your eyes will be opened to the good things, people, and events you already have. This sense of gratitude can re-energise you and reframe how you can move forward with your manifestations.
6. Practice More Self-Love
Self-love is crucial to a better manifestation mindset. If you don’t love yourself, you won’t believe that good things like your goals can happen.
However, self-love is a journey and requires constant practice. While it cannot happen overnight, loving yourself begins with feeling comfortable about putting yourself first.
Do not be afraid to spend an afternoon away from your family or schedule a vacation with your friends. Indulge yourself in small rewards or treats. Making time for yourself builds a stronger sense of self-love and awareness. Most of all, it reminds you that you are worth it.
7. Reframe Your Beliefs About Yourself
Self-love also begins with a positive mindset about your capabilities and personality. Start with a simple task, such as listing down your latest accomplishments, no matter how big or small they are. If this is too hard, you can answer the question, “what do I like about myself?”
Don’t overthink what to write. Jot down the first things that come to mind. You may be surprised to rediscover how wonderful you are as a person.
Manifesting your goals starts with believing in yourself and what you are capable of achieving. No matter the setbacks and challenges that come your way, reaching those dreams will continue to happen if you love yourself and listen to what your body needs. So, what are you waiting for?
