We all need social interaction in our lives to feel fulfilled. But not just any interaction. Meaningful interaction with people we connect with on a deeper level.
And for most of us, we have been looking for that special someone to fill that role in our lives. So, what if I told you you could use manifestation to attract them into your life?
Manifestation is a great tool, that when used properly, can help you with just that. It allows us to put our intentions out into the world and open ourselves to receiving what we want in return.
What is manifestation?
Manifestation comes from the law of attraction, which states that the energy we put out into the universe is the energy we receive. In other words, we attract that which we radiate.
In other words, our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings can create what we want we want in the physical world. Both good and bad.
Essentially, it is a term representing the idea that if you believe in it, it will come true. And the idea has a huge following.
Rhonda Byrne wrote, “The Secret” – a book all about harnessing the power of manifestation in your life. It garnered such overwhelming critical acclaim that it has been made into a film.
And many famous people believe in the power of manifestation, too, such as Will Smith, Oprah Winfrey, and Jim Carey.
So the question is, does manifestation actually work?
Can you really manifest something into your life?
Despite its strong roots in spirituality, there is a lot of psychological evidence to support the success of manifestation.
Researcher Carol Dweck created a theory based on the “Growth Mindset.” In this theory, she states that if you believe you can do something, you are more likely to be able to do it. This mirrors the way that manifestation works.
Another psychological principle that can explain how manifesting works is “self-fulfilling prophecies.” That is, whatever you believe of yourself, positive or negative, you will eventually become.
It’s a principle that is especially talked about in educational circles. Teachers are taught about how self-fulfilling prophecies can affect their students. For example, if a teacher always tells a student they are bad, then regardless of if they were bad or not, to begin with, they will eventually start behaving. Conversely, if they praise the student constantly and tell them they are doing good, they will begin to believe it and do good.
The same goes for manifestation – what we believe about ourselves we become, what we believe of our life will come to pass.
So, if we believe we are worthy of a special someone entering our life and manifesting them, they will be attracted into our lives. This may even apply to manifesting someone back into your life, such as a good friend that you’d lost contact with.
So, how can you manifest someone into your life, or even how do we manifest love into our life.?
Six steps to manifesting something into your life
- Choose who you want to manifest
Your mind might be buzzing with a list a mile long of all the attributes of the person you want to attract into your life. It’s normal. But for manifesting to work, it’s important to get specific about what you want.
Manifesting on paper as well as thinking about it is a powerful exercise. So, make a list of all the things you want to manifest and get clear on exactly who this person is.
- Why do you want them?
Get specific about why you have chosen this person profile for the person you want to attract into your life. For example, why have you chosen certain personality traits? Is it because you think it will compliment your own personality? Is it the person that you want to be yourself? Are they qualities you genuinely value, or are they traits society has told you to appreciate in people? The more specific you get about why you want to attract someone specific into your life, the more likely it will happen.
- Believe it will happen
As we’ve discussed, believing that you can have what you want is essential to manifesting something into your life, so make sure you start believing it will happen.
An excellent way to do this is to visualise yourself having attracted who you wanted and how your life looks together. You should then start living your life as if they have already entered your life so that you can harness the power of the self-fulfilling prophecy.
- Create affirmations
Affirmations are short phrases you repeat to yourself daily to affirm your beliefs. For example, if you are manifesting that special person into your life, you might create an affirmation about your ability to be loved, such as, “I am deserving of love and support.”
You may also wish to use general affirmations for manifestation, such as “I am worthy of following my dreams and manifesting my desires.”
Choose three to five affirmations and repeat them daily.
- Journal your progress
When manifestation takes longer than you had hoped, it can be disheartening, and you may want to give up hope. Don’t.
Instead, keep track of your manifestation by journaling your progress. What are you doing in your life to align with your “new normal” with this person? Have you noticed any changes in your life since you started manifesting? Any new people hanging around waiting for you to open the door to them? Do you think it is related?
Keeping a journal will help provide you with perspective on the hard days.
- Be open to receiving what you have manifested
Eventually, your manifestation will bring who you want into your life. But, they may not be the person you were expecting. Depending on why you wanted certain traits in your special person, you may have attracted someone different than you had envisaged that still offers you the why of your desires rather than the what.
So, be open to receiving what you want in ways you hadn’t necessarily expected, and make sure to show gratitude when you do!
Final thoughts on manifesting a specific person
Manifestation is a powerful tool that you can use to attract someone you want into your life.
Make sure that you are sure it’s what you want and that you believe you are worthy of receiving that person into your life.
And remember, manifesting doesn’t always work in the way you think. You may not get the person you want, but you will get the person you need to fulfil your desire.
Good luck on your manifesting journey!
