You may have heard of manifesting as it's been a hot topic in the spiritual world for some time now. The concept is definitely not a new idea and there has been a lot of content created around manifestation and the power of positive thinking such as the best-selling book "The Secret," via Amazon. Manifestation is simply believing that everything you want and desire is yours and that the universe will deliver it to you in time. Manifestation is all about the law of attraction, which states that powerful and positive thinking will bring power and positive things into a person's life.


To begin manifesting your dream life you must be very clear about what you want, via Oprah Daily. Perhaps it's a new job or more money. Maybe you're looking to manifest the romantic partner of your dreams, start a family, or buy a beautiful home. Whatever it is, knowing what you want is the first step to manifesting it. Details are key and things like the color of a new car or your future spouse's characteristics can all be manifested in various ways.

One popular method of manifestation is scripting, which includes writing down all of your thoughts, feelings, and goals in order to obtain them.

Scripting is a great way to visualize your dream life

An important part of manifesting your dream life is visualization. Feeling like you have already obtained the things you want, visualizing how you would dress, act, look, and speak if you had those things, and getting very detailed about it helps tremendously, per Well + Good. One way to work out all of the details and help yourself visualize that life is by writing it all down. This will allow you to think clearly about what you really want, and then re-read it in order to paint a picture of it in your mind.


Of course, to really feel like you've already achieved your goals you'll need to write in the past or present tense as if you've already obtained all the things that you want and you couldn't be happier. Writing things like "I'm so happy now that I have the job of my dreams. I set my own schedule and make a great salary." Try not to sound needy or desperate for these things in your writing. Be confident, and bold, and come from a place of gratitude while visualizing that you have all the things you've ever wanted in life.

Saving your journal entries will also allow you to look back in the months and years following to see what you wrote and if your manifestations come true in the way that you had hoped. Of course, you can use scripting in other manifestation methods as well. 


Other ways to manifest

According to mindbodygreen, some people use the 3-6-9 method to manifest. This method includes writing down what you want to manifest three times in the morning, six times in the afternoon, and nine times in the evening to keep your desires and goals in the forefront of your mind all day long. Another way to use scripting to manifest is by making lists. You can make a list of all of the characteristics you want in a romantic partner, or all of the amenities you'd like to have in your dream house. You could list all of the experiences you want to have or places you want to travel. Just be clear about your vision as you're making your lists.


Meanwhile, if scripting isn't for you there are other wants to manifest your desires. Making a vision board with photos and quotes that allow you to visualize and feel like you're living your dream life may be helpful. Repeating daily affirmations may also give you the energy and motivation you need to manifest your intentions.

Of course, the most important part of manifestation is taking action that aligns with your goals. By living and behaving like someone who already has the things you want in life to raise your vibration you'll only help your manifestations come to you faster.
