If you’ve heard of the movie, The Secret, you’ve heard of the Law of Attraction. While The Secret was a slick, easily packaged, and over-simplified introduction to the LoA, it’s still a great start to learning some of the basic principles.
If you’ve gotten the basics down already and are looking for how to really supercharge your manifesting, you’re in the right place, because I’m dishing on my favorite manifesting hacks right here.
There are simple techniques that you can use daily in order to make manifesting using the Law of Attraction even easier and faster than you’ve ever dreamt was possible.
1. Learn How to Meditate Using Creative Visualization
First and foremost, if you are interested in manifesting to your fullest potential, make sure that you begin each day with meditation. Meditation is important because it brings your focus toward what you desire and what you expect for that day.
If you’re not a morning person, ending each day in this way is also good, as long as you’re making it a daily practice.
Creative visualization is a powerful tool specifically in creating the feelings behind the desire. It’s not enough to just meditate on something you wish to attract into your life, visualization brings it to life.
Creative visualization takes it one step further, by incorporating the feelings you are feeling as you see yourself:
- receiving the love you want
- receiving the experiences you desire
- receiving the kind of people into your life you’re looking for
- receiving the material possessions you’d like to have
As you embrace the feelings of joy and happiness, you will see that more joy and happiness will enter your life. Creating visualization makes this happen by using your emotions as triggers.
Where some people go wrong is that they focus on the desire or the want of these things. The only result that will bring is more wanting, more desire.
2. Incorporate All Your Senses
It’s also an incredibly powerful practice to incorporate the other four senses while in the process of creative visualization, meditation, daydreaming, or journaling. See the scene, feel the scene, but take it that extra step and break it out into your other senses. Make it real.
- What do you hear around you when you’re receiving what you’re manifesting?
- What do you smell?
- Is there a taste?
Hold the visualization in your mind almost like a movie scene and play it over and over until you’re convinced you’ve got what you’re going for already.
3. Learn the Art of Being Grateful
Being grateful means truly understanding how much we already have without asking for any more. When you’re in a state of gratitude, so many more things to be grateful for come your way.
Take a look around you. There is so much to be grateful for, but you need to stand up and take notice. When you start to understand the simple blessing that envelope your life, you will feel more joy. Once you feel more joy, you’ll begin manifesting more joyful events in your life.
Whether visualizing, meditating, journaling, or daydreaming, incorporating gratitude into the practice will add another powerful layer of intention to bring you what you want faster and easier.
4. Write Out Your Thoughts & Desires
Schedule fifteen minutes at the start of each day to write. Call this practice what you will, journaling, daydreaming, whatever, but really commit to doing it every single day.
I generally do it in three sections: visualization, gratitudes, and affirmations.
First, write out exactly what you’re creating in your life as if it’s already become your reality. Use first person languaging in the present tense.
- What does your life look like? What does it feel like?
- What kind of relationships, finances, and routines do you have now that you’ve received everything you’ve ever wanted?
Secondly, gratitudes are a way to put yourself in that thankful mode quickly. Still use first person languaging and present tense verbs. “I am grateful…” or “I am thankful for..” are powerful ways to declare your gratitudes, especially while writing by hand.
So, what are you grateful for?
- How many things can you come up with to give thanks about?
- What will you be grateful for once you’ve manifested your particular desires? Make that time now.
Lastly, spend just a few minutes writing out those affirmations that speak to you.
Decide on 3 or 4 to really focus with clarity and write them out several times in a row until you no longer need to double check the wording.
Of paramount importance here is the necessity to feel what you’re writing. This can’t come from just head space, this needs to come from somewhere deeper and more meaningful. Once you understand that, this practice is something you’ll look forward to and immensely enjoy.
If you’re anything like me, you have several beautiful blank books sitting around the house, collecting dust. Pick one of them or use a composition book. A bound book is crucial to creating ritual, routine, and building a sense of momentum to your daily practice.
5. Keep the Negativity in Check
If you really want to get the most out of the Law of Attraction, then you need to monitor your thoughts and emotions as often as possible to ensure your vibration matches what you desire.
One of the things that The Secret really gets right is that feelings are a feedback mechanism to tell you what thoughts are going on in your head while you’re on autopilot. Notice when you’re feeling crappy and make the effort to change modes.
If you find yourself going into negative emotions or self-sabotaging thoughts, you need to immediately stop the loop instead of feeding into it. Don’t get stuck in a vicious cycle. Remember, you’re creating your future moment by moment. What kind of future do you want?
- Think positively
- Concentrate on all that you’re grateful for
- Give yourself positive mantras to shift your emotions or thoughts easily when needed
By creating your thoughts to show up as you wish, you create your life to show up as you wish, as well.
Commit to Positive Actions
If you think about the word commitment, what comes up for you? Does it sound like a chore or a burden, or maybe something that you have to do instead of want to do? Well, committing to positive actions doesn’t have to be like that at all.
When you commit yourself to the positive actions to supercharge your manifesting, you gain all the benefits and reap all the rewards. Committing yourself to positive action means committing to your most authentic self and to your best life.
Although commitment may have mixed connotations for some, there are a few things you can do to make it easier.
First, start small when changing your routine to incorporate the aforementioned practices. Don’t think that you have to be perfect or dedicate every part of your day and life to manifesting consciously right away.
Layer a new behavior or practice into your life only after you’ve mastered the last.
Second, link new behaviors to existing ones. This advice is touted all around the productivity and behavioral change communities for good reason- it works!
Pick something you do daily, without fail, at about the same time every day and pair, or link, the new desired daily behavior to it.
Do you drink your coffee every morning, come hell or high water? Great. Do your writing exercises while doing so.
Do you walk to work every day or walk from a parking garage? Use that time to mentally cycle through your chosen mantras or affirmations instead of mindlessly scrolling through your phone.
Do you stretch every night before bed? Perfect! Do your creative visualization meditation right after.
Link something you want to do consistently with something you already do without thought to make the process of committing so easy you can do it on autopilot.
Last but not least, finding a manifesting partner is a simple way to commit to positive action.
More fun than an accountability partner, a manifesting partner is someone who’s on the same manifesting journey you are. It’s a friend, family member, or kindred soul that you touch base with daily or weekly to discuss the process, get feedback, and receive encouragement on the manifestation process.
Some ideas of things to discuss:
- What you manifested today/this week
- What were the cues you caught to pull yourself out of a negative thinking loop?
- What successes you had today/this week in the quest for consistency of practice
- Any new resources, tips, or tricks you’ve come across
It’s Easy to Supercharge Your Manifesting Daily
Going from someone who sometimes manifests what she wants to someone who always manifests what she wants doesn’t take much effort at all when you have some specific direction.
- Learn how to meditate using creative visualization
- Incorporate all your senses
- Learn the art of being grateful
- Write out your thoughts and desires
- Keep the negativity in check
And don’t forget to commit to positive actions every day. Without the commitment, results will be spotty and interest will wane. However, if you commit, reinforce, and simply decide that you will succeed, you almost can’t help but do just that.
