You must have heard about manifesting your desires with the law of attraction. This is too attractive a concept and a proposition to let it go without understanding more about it.
Naturally, you will have multiple questions popping up in your mind.
What is manifestation? How do you manifest what you want? Can you manifest whatever you want? Are there any special strategies or techniques to ensure your success in manifestation?
For most people, trying out something new without an assurance of its efficacy is a deterrent. Your mind will go like, “Nah! It is not worth the effort”.
Again, the promised rewards are too attractive to let them go so easily. So, if you are looking for more information on manifestation and its meaning and methods, you have come to the right place.
Read on to get an in-depth understanding of manifestation with the law of attraction.
What does it mean to manifest?
The dictionary definition of the word “manifestation” in the general sense is “an indication of the existence, reality, or presence of something”. And the word “to manifest” means “to make clear or evident to the eye or the understanding” or “to prove, put beyond doubt or question”.
However, in the context of the law of attraction, manifestation means turning your dreams into reality or bringing your desires into existence using your energy vibrations.
According to Oprah Winfrey, manifestation is “bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief”. Angelina Lombardo, the Spiritual Life Coach and author of A Spiritual Entrepreneur defines manifesting as “making everything you want to feel and experience a reality… via your thoughts, actions, beliefs, and emotions.”
What is the spiritual meaning of manifestation?
The manifestation in the spiritual sense is based on the New Age concept of the law of attraction. It is the process that can make your dreams and desires come true through positive thinking.
The philosophy of the law of attraction and the concept of manifestation is as old as mankind. This gained worldwide attention with the movie “The Secret” and the book of the same name. Celebrities like Oprah, Jim Carrey, Will Smith, and Arnold Schwarzenegger have openly declared their support for it and popular authors like Paulo Coelho and Jack Canfield are actively promoting it. We have written the law of attraction success stories that will motivate you.
In simple terms, manifestation is about making good things happen using positive thoughts and actions. If you really want something, you need to focus your mind on it and truly believe in the process to make it a reality.
Or whatever your mind focuses on, it brings into existence. If you maintain a positive outlook, the outcome would be good.
Unfortunately, the same process works for negative thoughts as well. When your mind is obsessing on what you don’t want, you will end up manifesting the same thing you want to avoid.
Whether you understand the process of manifestation and use it consciously to realize your dreams or not, you are manifesting all the time. When you are manifesting unawares, you have no say in what you attract into your life. So, it makes sense to understand more about it and use it to your advantage.
How do you manifest what you want?
Manifestation works based on the concept that everything in this Universe, including living and non-living, tangible and intangible, is made up of energy. The law of vibration, one of the basic laws of the Universe, states that everything in this Universe is in a constant state of movement and vibrating at a certain frequency.
The law of attraction takes it a step further and tells us that “like attracts like”. This means things possessing the same energy are drawn towards each other. Objects with positive energy attract others with the same positive energy. This is also true for negative energy.
Another way to look at this phenomenon is from the point of view of manifestation of desires. When you want something good in life, it is bound to have positive energy. To attract it into your life, all you need to do is to raise your vibrational frequency to that of your object of desire. This process of raising your vibrational frequency to realize your dreams is manifestation.
The law of attraction offers multiple tools and techniques to help you boost your energy frequency. Visualization, affirmation, meditation, and gratitude are some of the most effective and popular of them all.
Manifestation also requires you to pay attention to some more aspects for a successful outcome. Such as setting goals, sustaining an unwavering belief in the process, maintaining your focus, behaving as if your desire is realized, and mentally readying yourself to receive the goal.
The process of manifestation can be summed up as Ask, Believe, and Receive.
Examples of manifestation
Do you still feel confused or remain unconvinced about how manifestation works? Read on to find manifestation explained through real-life scenarios.
Example 1: Manifesting love
You can manifest a specific person or a loving relationship.
Step 1: The first step would be to make sure that you want to find love and desire to be in a relationship.
Step 2: Get a clear idea about the kind of partner or relationship you want. Figure out the attributes you are looking for in your ideal partner. In case, you have already zeroed in on that special person, dig deeper to understand what is it about this person that makes you happy. Be open to the outcome that this may not be the right person for you. Trust the Universe to know what is best for you.
Step 3: Reconnect with yourself. First, you need to be comfortable in your own skin and love and embrace yourself without restraints to be able to love another person.
Step 4: Make use of the different tools of manifestation such as visualization, affirmations, and gratitude to boost your vibrational frequency.
Step 5: Keep your eyes open for opportunities. If you are not actively involved in the process, you may miss the chance.
Step 6: Believe in the process unconditionally and trust the Universe implicitly to make your desire a reality.
Patience and perseverance are the keys to finding long-lasting love.
Example 2: Manifesting a job
Whether you are looking for your first job, change of job, or a promotion, the steps are somewhat similar.
Step 1: Gather as many details as you can about the kind of job you are hoping for. The clearer the picture, the better is your chance of success at manifesting it.
Step 2: Believe in yourself and your abilities. Revisit your belief system and throw away any limiting beliefs that can hamper your success. Having a limiting belief such as “I am not good enough for the job” is not going to help.
Step 3: Take action. Apply for the job you desire. Just wishing for something and not taking action will not work.
Step 4: Stay positive with affirmations and visualization.
Step 5: Convince the Universe that you are ready for the dream job. You can do this by believing and acting as if you have already realized your dream. Expressing gratitude also helps.
Step 6: Trust the Universe to make your wish come true.
It is important not to get obsessed with your desire. After you have fulfilled your part of the deal, learn to let go.

Example 3: Manifesting money
Whether you are struggling to meet your basic needs or you are already rich and want to have more money, this works the same way.
Step 1: Knowing how much money you want to manifest always helps. And knowing what you need the money for will increase the success rate of your manifestation attempt. This can remove the negative effect of limiting beliefs you may have about having money.
Step 2: Behave and live as if you already have the money you are wishing for. This is important, as a scarce mindset is bound to bring down your vibrational frequency. Being wealthy, even if it is in your imagination, can boost your energy levels.
Step 3: Scan your belief system for limiting beliefs about money. This negative mentality can create roadblocks on your manifestation path. Root them out with affirmations.
Step 4: Visualize your life after manifesting the money you are wishing for. Amp it up with affirmations and a vision board. All these help in raising your energy vibrations high enough to attract your desire.
Step 5: Get ready to receive your desire. It is vital to let the Universe know that you are ready for it.
Step 6: Show gratitude for the blessing. This sends a clear sign to the Universe about what makes you happy. And the Universe is always looking for ways to make you happy.
Believing in yourself and the Universe can make your dream come true.

‘What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create’ – Buddha
Summarising the concept, Gandhi has said, “A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes”. Putting it another way, your success and failure in life is a direct result of your thoughts, feeling, emotions, and beliefs.

Seeing angel number 111 is a sign that the universe supports your manifestation efforts and that you are on the right track. Continue visualizing and feeling what it will be like to have your desire come to fruition. Stay positive and patient, and soon enough, you will see results.
