It's one thing to know what you want for your life but it is another to go about creating it. You and only you are responsible for the life that you are currently living and for creating the change that you want. How bad do you want the life that you want? Will you change it? Read on to get a step by step guide to manifest your dreams.
1. Get Clear.
The most important step in dream manifestation is being really clear on what it is that you actually want. What is it that you want to move toward, a vague answer will not put you in the right direction ~ example - "I just want to be happy" or "I just don't want this career anymore". You need absolute clarity on exactly what it is that you want for your life. Refer to a previous blog post "A practical guide to finding your purpose" to help give you more clarity on what it is that will bring you happiness in life and you can also get a free downloadable guide & worksheets to help you through the process.
2. Write it.
Once you have absolute clarity on what your dreams are and the direction you want to go in write it down!
Before you start your list listen to this!!!!!!!
Once you have listened to the audio and answered and collected the above information then arrange it nicely in your journal so that you can easily refer back to it and track your progress. I do this in my bullet journal (See blog post "Time. the Currency of the Wealthy" for more resources on bullet journaling)
3. Visualize it.
You need to be in love with your dreams, you need to see your dreams, you need to be obsessed with your dreams in order to follow through and take the massive action necessary. If you are not inspired by your dreams they are not big enough! The best tool that has worked for me is a dream board that you see every day and helps you to visualize your unique future. This iss also backed by science - for some articles with research as to why it works check out the following:
Now take the time and create your dream board. Make it fun, get a couple of friends together, listen to music and do the following steps:
I created a new one at the start of this year you can see it here if you would like an finished example or visit my "Purpose" board on Pinterest under the section "Dream Boards" to see more examples for additional tips and inspiration. Then place it or hang it in a place that you will see it each day. In addition, take a picture of your final masterpiece, print it in color and tape it to the inside cover of your daily planner. I did this and I can now refer to my dream board anytime anywhere. You can also do this by setting it as the wallpaper on your phone. The more visible and the more ingrained in your mind the better.
4. Believe it.
You need to convince yourself and actually see and believe your dreams coming to reality as if it has already happened in order to manifest. To do this you need to see it in your mind. Make sure to look at your dream board every morning and to take some time to really visualize your future as if you were already living it, this will set you on the right course for the day and inspire you to keep pursuing your dreams.
In addition to this, meditation also helps. In the last years science has come such a long way to proving the advantages of meditation and the real personal benefits gained from a regular meditation practice. Further, if you are going to create a new future you need let go of your past and become the person you need to be in order to manifest the life you want to have.
For some more information on the many benefits and why you should consider meditation watch the following videos:
As it relates to manifesting your dreams, I complete a guided meditation every morning to support me in making mine a reality. I am a busy lady and this meditation is short, under 10 mins, it's free and it's available via an app on your phone so you can't go wrong, check it out:
Do this every morning and I can assure you that you will notice a difference in your life quickly.
5. Create it.
Now take action and start manifesting! You need to make time daily to do so in order to see the results. So each day:
6. Guard it.
Finally, guard your mind. It is so easy to get distracted with all of the information constantly being thrown at us. We are what we believe and we are what we consume so it is so important that we choose to consume content that educates us, inspires us and moves us towards our goals. This is why I started this blog, to have a resource for women to go to and obtain information curated from the people living their best lives. To create a source of positivity and inspiration so that you don't lose sight of your dreams in an ever changing world full of content meant to distract you. To really understand the importance of this please listen to the below (or download and listen later) from the expert Tony Robbins it highlights the sheer importance of what you feed your mind and surround yourself with:
Lastly, I have created a downloadable based on the above method to help you through the process of manifesting your dreams ~ get it here and please do let me know what you think and if you found it helpful.
