3 Practices to Manifest the Life of your Dreams
There's lots of talk about manifestation in the wellness world today. While it may seem like just another buzzy trend, there's a lot of value in stepping into the driver's seat of your life and taking action to call in what you desire. When it's done with intention and commitment, the practice of manifestation can be highly effective in attracting the kind of people, experiences, and opportunities you want in your life. We've compiled three of our top tips to become the ultimate co-creator and call in the life of our dreams.
Write it Down
A good old-fashioned list can go a long way. Take inventory of the different areas in your life; work, love, friendships, home. Write down your dream scenarios in all of those areas. Don't be afraid to dream big, and remember that you are worthy of having all you desire. Let your heart spill out on the page as you write down everything you would like to call in, big and small. Don't be afraid to return to this list to edit and add as needed.
For an extra magnetic flare, set the tone before you get to writing. Grab your favorite journal and crystals, and go somewhere you will not be disturbed. Layout your Sappan Wood Ayurvedic Meditation Set, filled with lavender and buckwheat hulls to help you drop into a relaxed state as you tap into your desires. Get comfy on your pillows, take a few deep breaths and get to co-creating.
Do Subconscious Work
Did you know that our subconscious mind makes up 95-99% of our consciousness? All of our lived experiences from ages 0-7 are stored in our subconscious mind and create our current reality. To begin manifesting a different reality for ourselves, we need to create new belief systems and stories on a subconscious level about what is possible for us.
For example, if you're an artist who grew up in an environment where creative careers were considered unreasonable and unrealistic ways to make money, you may find yourself doubting yourself, your career, and struggling to make it work as a creative. When you do the work to shift that subconscious narrative, you can create from the space of believing that creatives can make a great living and that artistic careers are valuable.
Now you may be wondering, how do I do subconscious work? No, affirmations and traditional meditation don't do the trick. While those practices are beautiful, they're only scraping the 5% of our consciousness that has nothing to do with manifestation. However, there are some highly effective ways to create profound and lasting change on a subconscious level.
- Hypnosis: Hypnosis is a fantastic way to access the subconscious mind through theta waves and deep relaxation. To Be Magnetic offers a variety of hypnosis meditations and workshops involving hypnosis, all targeted around manifesting the life of your dreams.
- Psych-K: Psych-K is a highly efficient and effective way to create new belief systems and clear stress from the nervous system that might be blocking your desires. You can find a Psych-K facilitator near you or attend a beginner's training to be able to practice with yourself.
Take Inspired Action
While writing down our desires and doing the inner work lays a solid foundation, the real work comes down to taking inspired action. We can't sit on the couch with a journal and hope that our desires fall into our lap; we need to take the aligned steps to make our dreams a reality. This can often involve pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone. Apply for jobs in a new city, download the dating app, start the savings account, and book the plane ticket. Take a look at your list, and choose one inspired step you can take that would bring you that much closer to your manifestation.
You are a powerful co-creator, and the life of your dreams is within your reach. All it takes is consistent clarity, reflection, and taking inspired action to move you further along your journey. When we commit to ourselves, our well-being, and a vision for our lives, the universe does the rest. Remember that you are worthy of everything you desire, and don't be afraid to dream big.
