    Step 1: Decide what you really want

    Think of the most beautiful painting or sculpture you’ve ever seen. Now consider what it was before — just a blank canvas or block of raw material. Similar to how the artist brought their masterpiece to life, you can do the same with your future. It starts with a clear vision, which is the first step to manifesting.

    Do you know what you truly want the most in life? If not, try the following exercise. 

    Take about five minutes and ease into a calm, rested state with your eyes closed. Relax your breathing. Use all of your senses to take in the moment. Now, imagine a radiant light entering your body, moving from head to toe, then expanding throughout the universe. Ask yourself what your heart truly desires in the entire world, and take note of any thoughts or observations that enter your mind. Pull the light back in and conclude the exercise. 

    If that doesn’t work for you, another practice is to sort your life into categories, such as love life, home, job and so on. How do you feel about each category? Rate them and note what needs improvement and why.

    Once you’ve identified your strongest desires, write them down as if you already have them. Make sure the statement you write is a positive one. Since the universe responds to the content of your thoughts, you must state what you want, not what you don’t. And if the signal you’re giving says what you want is already here, the energy will line up to make it so.

    For example, if you want a loving relationship, you’d write “I am in a loving relationship,” not “I want to stop having such bad luck at dating.”
