You are a powerful manifestation machine, but because you have between 50,000 and 70,000 unconscious thoughts each day, of which 80 percent are negative, you are not always manifesting wonders.
While it’s true that shifting to a more positive thinking lifestyle is the first step to applying the Law of Attraction (LOA), it’s also true that most people stop working with LOA because they tend to believe that if they start to have positive thoughts, then all their dreams will be manifested.
As a human being, you are a creator. You can create your dreams and destiny by having a map of your vision for your life and choosing feelings, beliefs, practices and actions that can support that vision. Below are 10 higly effective habits to help you manifest and develop your destiny.
- Exercise your imagination
As a child, you had a free and wild imagination. But as you grew up, you might have lost this robust and innate gift. Reactivate your imagination by asking yourself these questions each morning: what would I love to see happening to me? How and what can I give to the world today? What is the most outrageous and amazing thing that could happen to me today?
- Create a new identity
For a moment, imagine that you already have what you wish to have. How would you feel, walk, think, and talk? How would you dress and make decisions? Create a clear picture of yourself and act as if you are that person every day until it becomes your way of life or natural state of being
- Adopt an attitude of gratitude and contentment
When you start to live in a state of gratitude and appreciation for all that you are blessed with in your life, you send a signal of satisfaction to the world. This will, in turn, attract more of your wishes into your life. Why? Because the universe is a true reflection of who you are. Always be like a young child who knows no impossibility in his/her realm.
- Envisage living your dreams with a feeling
Each day, spend at least five minutes visualizing yourself living your dreams in as much detail as you can. Ask yourself where you are, what you are doing, who you are with and what you can see, hear, taste, smell and touch? Focus on feelings and sensations, and make them real.
- Clean up your clutter
In as much as your past can be substantial, stop clinging to it so much; it will only waste you. By holding onto the old, you are creating no room for new things in your life. So, let go of anything that you think it no longer does you any help.
- Ask for divine guidance
Humble yourself before the Maker, and He will uplift you. Your soul can see beyond what your rational mind or physical self can see. Surrender your control and pray. Ask the Almighty for daily guidance, knowledge, and wisdom to lead you in the direction of goals, dreams and ultimately, your destiny.
- Keep a worry list
Because your brain is a Velcro for negative thoughts and experiences, it’s natural to worry a lot - it’s the brain’s way of life. Keep your fears list for at least two weeks. The moment you begin to worry, record it somewhere. This will help you to release the energy that keeps you stuck and delete away your worries. In the end, your brain will proof that worry is just but a waste of your energy.
- Follow your intuition
Each time you get an intuitive hit to start a new project, go somewhere tranquil, call you friends or attend an event. Put your trust in that guidance and make a move. When it comes to manifesting your destiny, you have to prepare to meet the world halfway by making steps towards your dreams first.
- Prepare physically for the arrival of your destiny
If you have honestly expected your dreams to happen and manifest your destiny, then what are you doing to prepare for them? If you have a plan, do it immediately. If you are planning to attract a romantic partner, you have to buy a spare toothbrush. And if you want to drive in customer traffic, block off time in your calendar. What If your plan is to attract financial abundance? You have to organize your bank accounts as well as finances so that you can handle any new income easily.
- Live your dreams today and your life in the present moment
The more you live your dreams today, the faster you shape your destiny’s manifestation. Start by finding small ways to begin to live your dreams today. For instance, if your dream is to travel, explore your city and try new activities. If your dream is to have financial abundance, put on your best clothing and take good care of your property. This way, you are not just shaping your destiny, you are also manifesting it. Stop living in the past and worrying about the future because you will miss the joy, beauty, miracles and blessing of the present.
Instead of postponing your happiness to the uncertain time in the future when you think you will have the life you wish for, learn to appreciate your life and feel good at the present moment. Make a list of all things that rejuvenates you - dancing, nature walk, reading or cooking. Schedule them somewhere in your week. Remember happiness is a way of thinking and living that could shape your destiny.
