How to Manifest What You Want in Life and Love

by Danijela Jokic Vaislay

Practicing these seven things can help you manifest what you want in life and love:

1. Write down your goals

Dr. Gail Matthews, a professor at the Dominican University of California in her research study about setting goals, has discovered that people who write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them. Writing down your goals on paper is like an official declaration to yourself and the Universe that you are committing to manifesting your dream.

2. Use your phone as a manifesting tool

We spend so many hours a day with our phone in our hands, so why not use it as a manifestation tool? Creating a vision board as a visual reminder of your life vision, dreams and goals is helpful. But the truth is, we can’t spend so much time during the day looking at our phone.

Here are some ways you can use your phone as a tool to manifest what you want: 

-Take a picture of your vision board and set it as a wallpaper.

-Create a daily reminder with powerful affirmations, which you can read in the morning.

-Create a reminder with congratulations to yourself for achieving your desired goals (every time you see it on your phone screen, cultivate gratitude in advance like you’ve already achieved it).

-Have guided manifesting meditations to listen on your phone, every time you have a small break throughout the day.

3. Create a manifesting diary folder

To manifest what we want in life, it is essential that we cultivate a feeling of being happy, in love, prosperous or healthy. Depending on your goal, you can create a folder named: “I feel so rich,” “I feel loved,” “I feel successful” and so on. Your goal is to take pictures or screenshots throughout the day of every little thing which makes you feel like you are already symbolically, or on the small scale living the life you are dreaming of.

For example, if you desire to manifest more money you can take pictures of an expensive watch or jewelry piece which you’re wearing. Or take a photo of a meal in a fancy restaurant, donation or charity you gave, flight ticket, or whatever makes you feel abundant and store it in the “I feel rich” folder.

If you want to manifest a romantic partner, then you can take screenshots of a loving message from your friend or family member, or a gift that you received. Whatever makes you feel loved. Once you start doing it, open the folder every day and take a look at all the things that make you feel a certain way, to cultivate the positive vibes, which will help you manifest what you truly want in life. A creative visualization is a great tool, but seeing something you’ve already experienced has a much higher power, as it was real and you know it is your reality already.

4. Give away more of what you want to receive

Whatever you want to receive and manifest into your life right now, make sure that you also are giving it to other people around you. If you give it will be given back to you! Give more love to your pets, your friends, and family members and yourself (self-care, buying a gift for yourself, reminding yourself how special you are). Give more money to charity (no matter how small you can afford, it is essential to give it away). Donate clothes and other belongings you no longer use or need.

Invest money into education for your dream job, or on working with a coach to build your business. Leave a large tip at the restaurant, buy gifts for other people from your heart and wrap them with love. Buy lunch or a cup of coffee for a stranger.

No matter how small, you will give away every time that you do; you will feel abundant. You will show your faith in the Universe that there is more where that came from.

5. Let go of envy!

You cannot manifest what you truly desire until you let go of envy.

Let’s take a look what envy is: Envy is a negative feeling of frustration, sadness or anger (we all feel it differently), which pops up when another person has what we want.

We feel sad because we think it’s just not fair, we feel angry because we feel like we are a failure and we are less than, or we can be frustrated because our desires are not being met. Now, all of these negative feelings are creating very negative vibes. Feelings of lack and “not having it.” Cultivating these feelings is detrimental for manifesting what we want in life.

Every time you see or meet a person who is living the life you want to live or has accomplished what you want to achieve, congratulate that person. Instead of being envious, be happy because that person is living proof that you can make it happen too. Let that person be your inspiration and role model. If you sabotage people to get what you want or feel they’re like a competition, you will not get fortunate with manifesting it for yourself.

Make your competitors a driving force, which will inspire you to keep high standards for yourself and keep on improving. You should feel respect for your competitors and silent admiration. If they want(ed) to achieve the same as you, then deep inside, you are alike, and you share similar visions.

6. Strengthen the power of your beliefs

Our belief system is like a watchman on the door of our life. It controls the experiences and blessings that enter into our lives, and what will stay outside of our reach. Make sure that you eradicate disempowering beliefs and replace them with positive and empowering ones. Once you replace your disempowering beliefs with new, empowering ones, you will suddenly start “noticing” people, ideas, ways, creative solutions, opportunities… to manifest your desires which you never seemed to notice or “see” before!

To manifest what you want in life, you need to take aligned action towards it and cultivate the feeling that we already have to change our mindset. Make sure that you do something every single day that will represent you living your dreams (even symbolically).

If you desire to become a writer, start blogging or writing articles, or start writing an e-book, sign up for writer’s workshops, and so on. If you desire to travel around the world, start going locally more often or visiting nearby cities. If you desire to be so rich that you can afford a super expensive brand name purse, buy a cardholder or a wallet in that same shop (every time you look at it, it will remind you that you can afford the luxury items.)

Take yourself out for a romantic dinner or buy yourself flowers, go for a walk in nature. Where you would love to come with your romantic partner once he shows up into your life. Cook a “five-star” dinner at home, have a candlelight dinner with a glass of champagne to cultivate the feeling of abundance. Don’t wait for your life to be special “one day” when your dreams come true. Instead, start living your dreams today and you will see them manifest beyond your wildest dreams!

7. Have in mind that anything you think or speak is an affirmation!

We cannot transform our thoughts and beliefs into positive and empowering ones, and raise our vibes higher if we keep on complaining all the time about the things we are not happy with our life!

Affirmations are not just spoken for five or ten minutes a day when you are working on your mindset and doing creative visualization. We affirm things from the moment we wake up in our bed, to the moment we fall asleep. Everything that we are thinking and speaking throughout the day is affirmations!

Make an intention to avoid complaining about things and people that frustrate you. Start speaking and thinking more about positive, empowering thoughts, and the topics you are passionate about. Rumours, complaints, criticism, negative talk, they all are lowering our vibes and reducing our overall happiness. We need more positive energy and more positive vibes to create the life we will love.

Writing down all of the things you feel grateful for (gratitude journaling) will help you to shift your focus from what you lack in your life, towards what you are blessed with. Millions of people around the world do not have access to clean running water and electricity, which in Western countries we usually take for granted.

Write down every day at three things you are grateful for and let the feeling of being blessed take over you.

Have in mind that your “vision board” will become your reality only once you train your mind to think, talk, behave, and act like the person who lives the lifestyle you want to live!

Dear Danijela
Thank you so much for these inspiring words.
It is something I needed to read the most today. I still do not know how much will I be able to actually incorporate, but I know for sure that I will try.
Happiness still looks like a far away project but I will keep trying.
Thanks once again.

    Danijela SAYS:

    Dear Aakansha, thank you for leaving such a beautiful a comment! The first step on the journey to happiness is deciding that we must make some positive changes in life and become happy! The second is that we search for resources and people who can help us in that. I can see that you are already doing both so you can be sure in time, that you will experience more happiness in joy in your life. <3
