Does manifestation work? Can you change your reality with manifestation techniques?
If you have read about manifesting, you might have been intrigued to know whether it’s really possible to get real results. Can you really attract the things you want? can you really improve your life?
These are legitimate questions, since it might seem strange how desiring something can attract it into your life.
First, for those of you who do not know what manifestation means, here is a short definition.
What Is Manifestation?
Manifestation is the act of bringing into real life the things you want. It is the process of turning your thoughts, desires and dreams into reality, using the power of your thoughts and the power of your imagination.
Manifestation is a mental technique that works together with creative visualization and the law of attraction.
The theory is that by focusing on a goal, imagining it, or writing about it, you can bring it into reality.
This is not a new idea. This process has been called, creative visualization, the law of attraction, the law of opulence, or the power of the mind.
Research by Dr. Carol Dweck clearly shows that believing you can do something makes it more likely that you’ll successfully do it.
In an article about this topic, psychologytoday.com says:
“Research shows that our expectations, positive or negative, tend to be confirmed. This is what is known as a self-fulfilling prophecy. So if we expect to bring our idea to life or reach our goal, we’re more likely to.”
Why Manifestation Technique Might Not Work
Does manifestation work?
The short answer, yes, it works, but there are some factors, which you need to take into account, otherwise you might not get results.
It’s possible to use the techniques, and yet, not get results.
If you wish to be a millionaire within the next month, it will of course not work. It is not a reasonable goal, except if you win the lottery. Becoming a millionaire requires work and time.
You have to be reasonable with what you want. You can become a millionaire, but you need to really want it, be willing to accept everything that this entails, such hard work, getting out of your comfort zone, and accepting all the responsibilities that come with being a millionaire.
You also need to know in what area of life you want to make money, and get the necessary skills.
- You need to choose a goal that is reasonable and within reach. Then, using manifestation techniques would accelerate the result.
- If you choose goals that are far beyond your current circumstance, it would be difficult to manifest them.
- If your desire is weak, or you don’t believe you can attract what you want, you will put barriers that would prevent the accomplishing of your goal.
- Letting doubts enter your mind would neutralize the law of attraction.
- Lack of enthusiasm would make it difficult for the manifestation techniques to work.
- Are you qualified for what you want attract? If you are not, even if an opportunity pops up you might not get what you want.
These techniques do not replace effort. You need to do whatever is necessary to get your goal accomplished. If you need to learn a new skill or get a certificate, start studying.
If you need some experience and information, go get them.
If you intend just to read about manifestation, and maybe try it for a little while, without believing it will work, it would not work.
Will You Always Get Results?
The best thing to do is to try it with some minor goal, something within reach, and see how it works. Then, gradually try bigger goals.
Will you always get results? As said earlier, sometimes you might get results fast, at other times it would take some time, and sometimes, you might get no results at all.
What to do get results? You will have to study these techniques and use them. You need to keep an open mind, and also learn from your mistakes if you don’t get results.
There are people who promise you great results in a short time, who tell you that you can get anything you want. Well, this is exaggerated.
As in everything in life, the truth is in the middle.
What can help? Reading, studying, and getting all the advice and guidance you can find.
In my book ‘Manifest and Achieve Whatever You Want‘, I have explained in a detailed way how to make manifestation works and how to use it.
You will find in the book examples for getting a car, a house and a job, and many other examples, together with guidance and tips.
You will also learn about creative visualization and the law of attraction.
Manifestation would work for you, when you follow the rules and instructions. Sometimes it might not work as expected, but so it is in every area of life.
Manifesting techniques can produce real results if you use your common sense and intuition, and when your ambition is really strong.
Bear in mind that just wishing you get a certain result, and then wait passively for results, is not enough.
I hope you got your answer to the question, ‘Do manifestation techniques produce real results?’
