We all have something we really want in life, and now is about time we get one step closer to that desire.
The only way to do that is to use the right methods of attraction.
These tried-and-tested methods are something you should incorporate into your every day life.
1. Talk about what you want
Some people are worried about putting positive energy out into the world. It really doesn't make any sense to me.
I have friends who focus on the negative believing that the universe will take pity on them. The reality is that the universe is only going to help those that can help themselves.
The only way to manifest what you want it to make it clear that you are going to achieve it. And the more people are aware of your life goals, the more they can align to and help your purpose.
If these friends don't want to stick beside you as you follow your dream, they're only weighing you down.
2. Make room for what you want in life
This technique is quite powerful and used by everyone who has reaped the benefits of manifestation.
If the universe sees that you don't lack anything in life, it will see no need to add unnecessary energy. You must leave room for your desires to manifest.
For example, if you want to meet your significant other, you must show the universe that you have a gap in your life. To do this, when you sleep, move to one side of your bed or make food for an extra person.
3. Get rid of negative energy in your safe spaces
Your home is place that you should be able to unwind and relax.
If there's negative energy in your workplace, you must at least have peace of mind when you come home.
To cleanse the energy and allow for positivity and prosperity to take hold in your home, buy detoxifying plants like ferns and spider plants and put them around your house.
4. Visualize how you want your life to be
I said visualize, but use more than one of your senses when you think about the things you want most in life.
Whether you want health, happiness, or money, you must place yourself in that environment and experience it with all your senses.
When I was a kid, I was fascinated by the law of attraction and it took a few years to master this skill.
My first manifestation was finding a $20 bill on the ground. I thought that if I could manifest this, I could do anything.
What I first did was imagine touching the bill. Then I imagined the smell it would have. I visualized where I would find it, which was a busy street. Then I visualized the sound of the cars zooming past.
I did this for two weeks every single day. This didn't take up more than a minute of my time.
At long last, I found that $20 bill. It wasn't on the street I visualized, but it was on a crowded street!
5. Be grateful for what you already have
Appreciation is the key to success, believe me. So make lists of all the things that you are grateful for in life.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't work hard, but without gratitude, your chances of success are slim.
If you cannot see the value in what you have now, you will never see the value in what you will have in the future.
Remember that the wheel of fortune is always at work, so make sure you don't upset it!
6. Surround yourself with the right people
As the old saying goes, "Birds of a feather flock together."
If you're a peacock spending time with a bunch of seagulls that do nothing to motivate you or lift your spirits, it's time you surround yourself with a new group of friends.
That doesn't mean abandoning the ones you have, but make sure that you're allocating more time with people that are going to help you reach your goals.
When you surround yourself with positivity, good things will always happen. You don't need me to tell you that, I'm sure you've been there before.
7. Create a dream board
Dream or vision boards will help you define your goals and be reminded of the things you have accomplished, and why you need to keep going.
I can't stress how important this is. Dream boards also tap into the idea of visualization and manifestation, so you don't want to pass on this one.
The mistakes most people make when creating these boards is only putting things that they want.
Remember what I said about gratitude? You must, and I mean must, put the things you have accomplished up there.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Sometimes it's nice to see how far you've gotten.
8. Set a goal, but don't feel trapped by it
You're probably scratching your head wondering, what are you talking about?
If your plans change, that's okay. The problem with fixed goals is that some people tend to feel stagnant or trapped by a goal that doesn't make sense to them anymore.
Now, if you're starting to have a change of heart about your goal because you have a fear that you will fail and never achieve it, stop right there.
If you want something, go after it. This is the biggest mistake people make when setting a goal, they think they're not good enough for it.
As I said in the first point, you are always good enough and make sure people around you know that you are.
9. Connect to the objects around you
Maybe you believe in good luck charms, or maybe you don't. Whatever your belief is, try to associate an object with positive energy.
For example, my mother bought me an amethyst necklace for my first birthday and it has always had a special significance for me.
Despite the fact that these crystals are known to reduce pain, by simply connecting this pendant to a positive energy I always feel good when I wear it.
During times of stress, I hold the pendant and tell myself that I'm capable of anything.
Or you can choose an object that represents what you want to manifest. Just make sure you have one of these, they'll motivate you sometimes without you even knowing it.
10. Spread positivity everywhere you go
Positive energy attracts positive energy, it's as simple as that.
I strongly believe in the karma, the law of balance, and that you reap what you sow.
Everyone is going through their own struggle, and we are in no place to judge people for their actions. Be less judgmental, and if you can't help someone, at least don't hurt them.
The key to spreading positivity is always smiling.
I'm sure you've had days where you've walked around with a frown and the only thing you have achieved is spreading negativity within yourself and around you. Don't be that person anymore.
11. Let go of things that weigh you down
Make a list of all the things or people that bother you. Is it possible for you to let them go and move on with your life?
Really think about this. If you say you can't let something go, why is that?
Do you need the money? Do you need that person's company? Do you feel like you're going to let people down?
I hear this all the time from people, but there's always a solution. Where there's a will, there's a way.
It's going to involve you taking risks, but what good has ever come remaining stagnant?
12. Always find ways to inspire yourself
There's no hard and fast rule as to what should inspire someone, so this one is up to you to determine.
The few things that inspires me is traveling, learning something new, and getting outside of my comfort zone.
I always keep a list of quotes on my phone, and every time I need a burst of energy, I look at these motivational and meaningful quotes.
Sometimes I'll lipstick them onto the mirror in my room, so every time I look in the mirror I visualize myself living the life I know I deserve.
13. Declutter your life
We're living in the age of minimalism. It's nice to see that this idea of "less is more" take hold.
Decluttering your life also ties in with letting things go.
If you have no use for something, or haven't used something for more than a couple years, it's time to let it go.
Give these items to someone who needs it. These small acts of kindness will slowly get you to where you want to be in life.
14. Choose positive affirmations
This may get tiresome after some time, but you should be repeating certain positive affirmations every day.
Say you want to be in a relationship with someone that brings out the good in you. Someone that truly brings a smile on your face.
Every single day repeat something like, "I am in a happy relationship."
Or if your dream is to travel the world. Every day repeat a different country you want to visit. For example, "I had a great time hiking in Switzerland."
15. Never give up
This has become such a cliche, but it has been overused for a reason.
You always hear the most successful people say this. Just think about it, a large group of people wouldn't be saying something if it wasn't true!
As the saying goes, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars."
