A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of attending Gabby Bernstein’s workshop, The Art of Manifesting: 5 Secrets to Attracting What You Want. Prior to attending the workshop, I was a believer in Manifesting - always have been! I could just really only ever describe it as “asking the universe what you want and then letting go and being unattached to the outcome.” While that explanation is certainly a part of manifesting, it often left me skeptical and unable to explain this deep rooted belief that I have. In the workshop, Gabby revealed her 5 secrets of manifesting and so beautifully articulated what I’ve longed to understand and explain but the most valuable nugget of wisdom I walked away with was a powerful reminder of why we even actively manifest in the first place.
Today, I'm sharing that powerful reminder along with 5 key points to keep in mind as you manifest your life.
Why do we wish, hope, dream, visualize, and/ or ask the universe for anything?
I can answer that question in one word.
When we dream of better, more, different, improved we are doing so to experience more joy, more happiness, more love, [insert your desired feeling of choice]
That is all.
As humans, we also assume that we know what will make us feel that sense of more.
- When I get X I will feel Y.
- When I make more money, I will be happy.
- When I get that promotion, I will be successful.
For anyone walking a spiritual path, this truth probably won’t surprise you but we’re usually wrong about what we think will make us happy in the end and that inability to surrender and trust is where manifesting usually goes wrong.
Below, I’m sharing 5 manifesting reminders that I took away from Gabby’s workshop. I hope you’ll find them as useful as I do.
Remember why you’re manifesting in the first place - joy.
Be open to experiencing joy in ways that you didn’t think of or plan for yourself.
Be willing to let go of what you think you need and trust in the timing of the universe.
Focus on surrendering to the present, not controlling the outcome.
Set a clear vision of where you see yourself and focus your energy on raising your vibes and experiencing joy in the present moment. That high vibe of joy that you feel when you surrender will attract other high vibes of joy.
Manifesting is one of my favorite things to think about, write about, talk about. Let's keep the conversation going in the comments. What are your thoughts, beliefs, hesitations, miracles with manifesting? Let me know in the comments!
As always, thanks for reading!
