5 Keys to Manifesting Successfully
This past weekend, Halifax Yoga hosted a Mala making workshop with MagikMala. It was so fun and an amazing experience to share with the community. We created individual malas after we meditated and worked on creating an intention to manifest with our malas.
Manifestation uses the principles of the law of attraction, “the law of attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts people can bring positive or negative experiences into their life” Wikipedia. How manifestation differs from the law of attraction is best explained by Dr. Wayne Dyer, “by using your imagination and practicing the art of assuming the feeling of your wishes being fulfilled, and steadfastly refusing to allow any evidence of the outer world to distract you from your intentions, you will discover that you, by virtue of your spiritual awareness, possess the ability to become the person you were destined to be.” Drwaynedyer.com.

In the following clip, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Oprah discuss manifestation further.
Manifestation is a huge force in my life. A year ago, I turned to my husband and said, “I think it is time for me to get a job”. I had been a stay-at-home mom for 13 years and this thought had started as a teeny tiny notion. As I went to yoga classes and dabbled in meditation, that teeny tiny notion grew into a bigger thought and eventually I started talking about it with the people around me. Those conversations with people, triggered more thoughts and inspirations around the manifestation to work again. I blew the dust off my resume, and started to look for jobs that really sparked my interest. As time went on, I started exploring more options, and I even thought about returning to university to get another degree. Meanwhile, I was in yoga teacher training, doing a lot of yoga, meditation and deep self work. During this time I continued to manifest the idea of a job. Almost a year to the moment I spoke my manifestation out loud I was offered the assistant manager position at Halifax Yoga. This job fits my manifestation perfectly. It is truly a dream job that I love to do everyday. I did not know when I first began to manifest this that it would turn out like this. That is the beauty of manifestations, when you put yourself out into the world, the universe is there to help you, and it doesn’t always appear the way you first visualize.
5 Keys to Manifesting Successfully
1. Be clear
Once you have decided what you want to manifest, be clear what you want. Try not to focus on what you don’t want. Positive attracts positive. Focus on your desire in a positive light.
2. Be consistent
No matter what the desire you are manifesting it is important to be consistent over time. Using Japa meditation with your mala beads is an excellent way to be consistent with your intentions.
3. Trust and chill
This is your opportunity to really begin to trust that your passion and desire is put out there. When the time is right, everything will fall into place. Trusting that that the universe has your back.
4. Take action & raise your vibration
Merely thinking about your desire will not allow it to manifest. Take action! Work towards your vision for yourself. Actively seek positivity around you. Go to yoga, meditate, take care of yourself. Help the universe make it happen. Be in service.
5. Clear resistance & space
You want to make room for the new awesomeness that is coming your way through your manifestation. Work on clearing out old negative thought patterns that no longer serve you.
While manifesting begins as a thought or feeling, you have to take action to see it through. You need to be consistent with your thoughts, give it time and trust that what will manifest is exactly what is meant to be. Passion is a key component to manifesting as well. When you encounter a person that has successfully manifested their desires, you will find that they tend to be the most passionate, energetic people.
Have you successfully manifested in your life? We encourage you to share with our community through social media your manifestations!
