What Is Manifestation and How to Manifest

Are you struggling with your life? Does everything seem to be going wrong? Does this make you lose motivation? 

You don't have to give up on the things that you want just because you feel like you aren't achieving your goals on the timeline that other people are working with. Remember, your path isn't the same as anyone else's. You need to trust that the universe has its own plan for you. 

If you're resistant to that plan, though, you might never open yourself up to it. How can you fix that problem? 

Have you ever tried to manifest your ideal life? 

Manifestation has grown in popularity, and many people have found it helpful for channeling positivity and attracting good things. But how does it work?

Keep reading to learn all about manifestation as well as how to start manifesting for yourself. 

What Is Manifestation? 

In short, manifestation is channeling your ideas and bringing them into reality. People manifest for many reasons, even if they don't believe in the grand power of the universe, and they still see the benefits. 

In literal terms, manifesting means bringing something into existence. This can mean that you create a new attitude or demeanor or create a new object or piece of art. 

In this sense, manifesting means that you're using the universe to bring you the things that you want and need. You're trusting the universe to create your path and set you on it so you can achieve your goals, even if they seem lofty.

Manifestation does have to be realistic, but the idea of "realistic" varies from person to person. We'll discuss this more in the next section, so be sure to keep reading. 

Manifestation isn't a new idea. Many people have heard of the Law of Attraction. This says that you attract good things if you put out good energy.

One of the earliest western books about this idea is Thought Vibration which was written in 1906. While "manifestation" wasn't always the term that people used, the idea is the same. 

Is Manifestation Magic? 

So is it magic?

Not really. Regardless of what school of thought you subscribe to, manifestation is simply you working together with the natural state of the universe to achieve your goals. Does that sound like magic or spellwork to you? 

People who aren't familiar or comfortable with the idea of "new age" spirituality still manifest, regardless of why they believe that it works. The idea of bringing positivity into the world and showing gratitude is easy to understand and it makes logical sense that if you set out your goals and approach them with determination, you will be more likely to achieve them. 

Remember, these goals should be actionable. The universe will work with you, but it can't bring you an imaginary life. In other words, you can't manifest several extra inches of height if you're an adult or a life in a fictional world. 

The universe isn't magic. It's natural. You have this power to work alongside (instead of against) the universe without magic. 

What Are Some Popular Manifestation Methods? 

So now that you have a basic grasp on what manifestation is, it's time to learn how to manifest. 

In reality, there are several ways to approach manifestation, and different people will choose different paths. Some may work for you more than others, so don't be afraid to mix and match methods until you find your true path. 

Here are some of the most popular ways that you can begin your manifestation and goal visualization journey. 


Journaling is one of the best ways for anyone to start manifesting. Anyone can start a journal and because notebooks are so cheap, there's a low barrier to entry. 

People call their journals different things. They may refer to them as manifestation journals, but they also call them gratitude journals, positivity journals, and goal journals. 

The main method is simply writing your ideal life down on paper. Be as specific as you like and divide it into sections. Write your goals down as if they've already happened. 

For example: 

  • I make $50,000 per year
  • I have a loving spouse
  • I live in a city that makes me happy
  • I have my dream job

Even writing your ideal life down like this will get your brain into "working" mode. Now that you see things on paper, is it easier to think about how you're going to reach them?

Write specific qualities that you're looking for in each area. What do you want from your partner? What does your ideal city look like? 

Write these things down every day and when you achieve something, show gratitude for it. 


Meditation isn't for everyone, but it's an effective method for achieving mindfulness and focusing on your manifestation. 

If you're new to meditation, read a few guides. There are several ways to get started. Overall, you want to be able to clear your mind or focus on a single thought (your goal). 

When you meditate, you put yourself in tune with the universe. Here's a quick meditation guide for beginners. 

Positivity and Gratitude

When you're trying to manifest a dream life, you need to act as though you already have it. How can you attract wonderful things if you put out negative energy? 

Even if you feel sad or you struggle with your mental health, trying to shift into a positive attitude will put better energy out into the universe. There's a popular term that says "fake it until you make it" that applies here. 

Even if you don't yet have the things that you want, thank the universe and the people around you for the gifts that you do have. For example: 

  • I'm grateful to have a roof over my head
  • I'm grateful for good health
  • I'm grateful for my pets

No matter how small, everything is worthy of gratitude. 

You Can Manifest Your Goals

Whether you believe that manifestation is all about goal setting or you want to truly get in sync with the universe, learning to manifest is a great starting point.

Don't get stuck in the trap of thinking that you can't change your life. The modern world doesn't lend itself to growth or positivity, so you need to channel and accept it on your own.
