It’s interesting how so many people bought into the Secret from the Oprah Winfrey point of view. Manifesting for them was all about achieving great wealth. After all, they reasoned, Oprah did it, so why can’t we?
Manifesting is pretty simple, it turns out. But it’s just not as easy as it sounds.
So here’s how to manifest:
- Visualize your goal.
- Be convinced of it with every fiber of your being.
- Act as though it’s already happened.
- Express gratitude to the Universe for giving you what is rightfully yours.
So there you have it. How to manifest in 4 easy steps. It’s the energy of your conviction that makes it happen.
But there’s more. Conviction alone isn’t the ticket. Conviction without action won’t get you too far.
Oprah, you see, did the work. She got the training. She worked hard. She climbed the ladder. She was awake and noticed opportunities when they appeared in her path. She took chances.
Fact is, not everyone is going to end up as wealthy as she did. And I’m not even sure that it was wealth she visualized. I’m convinced, though, that manifesting wealth is not the best use of the so-called Secret. There are better ways to manifest.
First, you have to set yourself up for success. You can’t sit at home and wait for it to come to you.
Then, you must affirm wisely. Try these: Affirm that all your needs are met. Affirm that you are healthy. Affirm that you are healed. Affirm that you are secure. Affirm that you are successful (but not measured by wealth.).
There’s something…distasteful...about attempting to manifest wealth. Maybe because I firmly believe that financial security is a byproduct of success in achieving other things. And also I’ve noticed that most people who attempt to visualize and manifest wealth without any other solid activity never get there.
They can visualize until the cows come home, but unless they take the right kind of action, nothing will happen.
I’d love your thoughts.
