8 Principles Of Manifestation (How To Manifest Anything You Want)

by Mindvalley January 18, 2019

This reality that you live within, is a manifestation of your own doing. And learning how to manifest what you want is much easier than you think.

Everywhere you look, some strange ‘coincidence’ is telling you to pursue a new path.

Your best friend’s three-year-old asking you if you are happy.

Even your cousin was talking about learning how to manifest reality at last week’s family dinner.

Manifestation can be an intimidating concept. Especially in this era of time where it seems as if everyone is in the pursuit of its practice.

Yet, if we remove ourselves from this grandiose vision of the manifested, the process of manifesting, itself, is actually rather simple.

We choose to exist as we do, and as we embrace this state of awareness, a great power begins to grow within us.

The power of intentional, and positive, manifestation.

We’re going to take a look at how to make manifestation work in your life with 8 practical manifestation tips.

What Does To Manifest Mean?

What does it mean to make something manifest in your life?

The word manifest means to display, exhibit, or appear. It’s a verb ⁠— a word of action and consequence.

To manifest something is to make it appear. Seemingly out of thin air.

To manifest something is to bring it out of the world of dreams, and to establish it in your daily life.

Is this even possible?

Well, with the Law of Attraction, yes. It most certainly is.

You just need to understand how the law works to wield it in your favor.

What is self manifestation?

What does it mean to self manifest?

Well, it’s just another way of describing the Law of Attraction at work.

When you manifest something into your life, it’s because you consciously called it forward.

Self manifestation is how we call into being our deepest desires and aspirations through the Law of Attraction.

What does manifestation mean spiritually?

Is the act of manifestation a spiritual practice?

In many ways, yes.

But that doesn’t mean you need to hold a specific set of beliefs in order to be able to manifest.

In fact, the only thing you need to absolutely believe is in your own ability to manifest.

How do you build that faith in yourself?


To manifest something requires diligent practice. A practice that is often also referred to as the Law of Attraction.

How do you manifest something?

“Okay, okay, okay,” you say. “I’m ready! How do I make this happen, as quickly as possible?”

Eager for those dreams to become a reality?

The sooner you take action on the first physical step, the sooner things will begin to manifest.

But until this happens, until you choose action, well, you’re really just sitting around, soaking in a pile of dreams.

The choice is yours.

Manifesting is simple. You just have to start.

As this practice builds, and the belief system strengthens, we shall often find ourselves facing yet another important question.

“How do I attract what I want?”

Attract what you want, by knowing that it is already attracted to you.

Honestly, you can literally have anything you want in this life.

Your dream job, that perfect relationship, or even a one-way ticket to traveling the world.

Whatever it is that your heart desires, is already waiting for you.

The status of your life, the magnitude of your happiness, these things are all up to you to decide.

The choice for a better life is yours.

Here are 8 principles of manifestation you can start implementing today.

8 Manifestation Principles To Build The Life Of Your Dreams

Are you ready to start manifesting?

Here are 8 practical tips to get you started:

1. Believe in yourself

First things first, believe in yourself!

Sometimes easier said than done, we know.

And yet the ease is there, should you choose to pursue it. Actually, creative visualization is a great way to initiate this becoming.

Visualize yourself, believing in yourself.

Acknowledge that you are capable, and through this acknowledgement, allow the desire for a better life to build within you.

2. Create an action plan

Remember though, visualization alone will get you nowhere.

You must take action!

I would visualize things coming to me. It would just make me feel better. Visualization works if you work hard. That’s the thing. You can’t just visualize and go eat a sandwich.

– Jim Carrey

In manifestation, it is of the utmost importance that you develop a plan of action.

Write it down. Read, and reread it. Own your plan, and embody its becoming.

Play with the belief that what you want is already waiting for you. You’ve placed the order, now you’re on your way to pick it up. What have you got to lose? After all, you don’t “need” what you desire, it’s just for fun.

3. Take action

If not now, when?

— Vishen Lakhiani, Mindvalley Founder and CEO

Once you have a plan, take action.

You need to focus only on the first step here. Complete it, and then move on to the next.

Slowly, checkpoint after checkpoint, everything will begin to unfold beautifully.

And Mindvalley’s Becoming Limitless Program lays out a beautiful path of growth. 

Here are 5 things you can start in your daily routine, to help initiate action in the direction of turning your imagination into something manifested.

  1. Write down your goals, both long and short-term.
  2. Practice breathing and meditation.
  3. Stay physically active, move your body.
  4. Tell yourself, everyone you know, and even strangers, what it is that you intend to accomplish.
  5. Keep a gratitude journal, and write in it daily.

Use these steps to garner momentum. Carry your new base of knowledge, and power, with you as you charge forward into whatever life has to offer next.

4. Focus on the positive

Positive vibrations attract positive vibrations.

Worry, fear, anxiety, doubt, or resistance in the form of limiting beliefs, pollute and dilute your vibration.

Acknowledge them for what they are, but choose to push yourself into a direction of positive thinking.

Imagine yourself as capable and powerful, with a future that is in direct alignment with your desires.

Fill every cell with love, happiness, joy, peace, and let that light, bright energy radiate outward to attract what you want!

The more you amplify positive emotions, the higher and more powerful your manifestation will be!

5. Visualize

Visualization is a powerful vibration booster.

Physical reality isn’t far behind the wonderful ideas you plant in your imaginationif you water them with love, enthusiasm, unwavering belief and lots of happiness.

Visualize who it is that you intend to become. Visualize what you want.

Everyone visualizes whether he knows it or not. Visualizing is the great secret of success.

— Rhonda Byrne

Absorb your vision, immerse yourself within it, and begin to truly feel the coinciding emotions.

6. Stay humble and grateful

Remember to stay humble.

Nobody likes a big ego.

Harness the power of gratitude, and remind yourself of the blessing you have on a daily basis.

Thank yourself for all the hard work you’ve put in, while simultaneously thanking the universe for honoring this work and providing you with results.

Thank yourself for initiating the process, and find gratitude in every success and setback along the way. But do not allow your new-found success to go to your head.

Always acknowledge who you once were and where you came from.

And do what you can to help others realize as you have.

Be grateful for the opportunities you have and send gratitude forward into the future for that which you are about to receive.


7. Upgrade your beliefs

Many people also have a bottleneck of positive energy when it comes to money – usually rooted in beliefs of scarcity and unworthiness.

But since money is nothing but a number and a means of exchange, do you believe in the scarcity of the things you would purchase with that money?

Do you believe that you are not worthy of having food, shelter, or nice things?

If so, it’s time to have a chat – a long, deep chat – with yourself.

Ask yourself where these beliefs came from. Then, see if you can challenge the authority of those beliefs.

8. Become a conscious creator

You are already a pro at manifesting.

You have, for the most part unconsciously, created a default existence based on your beliefs. There’s no reason why you can’t create an awesome life, using the proper techniques. All you need to do is take conscious control of the manifestation process instead of defaulting according to your old beliefs.

Take action on this potential, stay humble, and focus on how grateful you are for all the opportunities life throws your way.

Create new beliefs, guide your thoughts, emotions and visualization; feel the delight of watching your imagination become reality; raise your vibration by being happy and loving, and watch your dreams come true!
