You’ll find story after story of people proclaiming their successful manifestations that changed their lives. And whether you believe in it or not, something must have happened for them to get the results they wanted.
We know that hard work and aligning yourself to your mission will bring success over time. But what about if you want change right now? Can you manifest something overnight?
What is manifestation?Manifestation comes from the law of attraction – that you receive and attract the energy you put out to the world. Though it has spiritual roots, many self-proclaimed manifesters today do not ascribe to a deeper, spiritual meaning to manifest their goals.
In fact, there is a lot of conflicting information as to the best ways to manifest, but they all have one basic principle:
To manifest something, you need to align your life, actions, and energy to it so it can come true.
Is it possible to manifest something overnight?
So, how do we manifest something overnight, and is it even possible? This is a complicated question. Realistically, anything can happen overnight, and chances are, there are people who have manifested their desires overnight and got them. So, it’s not impossible, but there is a lot of work to do if you want to be one of these people.
Before we get into the steps you should take if you want to manifest something overnight, there is something fundamental to keep in mind. Big changes don’t come overnight, so you need to be realistic about your expectations for an overnight manifestation.
For example, if you’ve never run more than a mile in your life, and you are trying to manifest a record-breaking marathon run overnight, I hate to break it to you, but it’s just not plausible.
So, before you start the manifesting process, you will need to manage your expectations.
With that caveat out of the way, now comes the fun bit.
Six effective overnight manifestation tips
1. Get specific about your intentionsThe clearer you are on what you want, the more likely you are to manifest it.
You need to consider exactly what it is you want and exactly why you want it. Manifestation theory states that if you aren’t specific enough, you’ll get what you asked for, but it might not be what you were hoping for or expecting.
Think of it like a genie granting a wish and taking you extremely literally.
So if you want to manifest money overnight, get specific on how much money you want to manifest and what you want it for.
“I want to manifest £1000, so I can afford to travel to (insert country here) to visit my family” is much clearer than “I want more money so I can buy a thing.”
2. Write it downWhat better way is there to make your intentions known than to write them down? So grab your manifestation journal and write down the specifics of what you want, sparing no details.
Writing it down will also help you start to picture what you want and make a plan for how you are going to get it.
Not to mention it provides a clear statement of intent to the universe that you are ready to receive what you want into your life.
3. Practice visualisation
Now that you have the specifics sorted out and you’ve written them in your journal, it’s time to visualise this new reality you want for yourself.
Picture having the thing you are trying to manifest. How does it make you feel? How does it change your life? Think about it as if it has already happened.
When you start to visualise yourself having what you want, you begin to exude the energy that you are ready to receive it.
4. Listen to mantra audios in your sleepMantras are a core practice in the law of affirmation and manifestation. That’s because mantras are statements of intent, which, as we have seen, are essential for manifestation to happen.
However, if we want to manifest something overnight, we need to turn the heat up. That means making those mantras work even when we are sleeping.
A great way to do this is to find an audio recording of manifestations and playing them while you sleep. Alternatively, you could record yourself saying mantras specific to you that you can play on a loop as you sleep.
The idea is that playing informational audios in our sleep allows the brain to retain more information. It’s a practice that has been used in a variety of applications, including studying and hypnosis.
Having your brain retain the mantras during sleep will mean you wake up with strong intent and will for your manifestations to take place.
You need to believe in it with every fibre of your being for your manifestation to work.
That isn’t just reduced to believing it will happen either. You have to believe that you are ready for it. That you want it and understand how it will change your life.
If you have any doubts in your mind about what you want, you won’t be in a place of alignment to receive the thing you wish to, and therefore it’s unlikely it will happen.
6. Align your actionsOnce the thing you have manifested comes to be, your life will no longer be the same. Whether you are manifesting a small or big change, the way you live your life will change too.
So in preparation, you need to make sure that from the moment you are clear on what you want, you are acting in accordance with it.
For example, if you are trying to manifest a new job opportunity, sitting around being unproductive is likely to help.
