Manifestation meditation is a powerful technique that can be extremely useful in motivating you and helping you to visualise your success.
However - this isn't magic:
And you still have to work hard to achieve what you want out of life.
So in this guide, we'll cover everything you need to know about meditation manifestation....including how to practice it, whether it really works and some of our top tips.
Read on to get started.
What Is Meditation Manifestation?
According to the law of attraction, which is also called the law of affinity, with our thoughts, it's possible to manifest things into existence.
Meditation manifestation is a concentration exercise that allows you to take advantage of the law of attraction.
It's a process of bringing your goals and events into manifestation, by changing the way you think about them.
Let's look at it another way:
If you active in a negative manner, you're going to attract negative events into your life.
If you had anger problems for example - you may find yourself fighting, losing friends or even facing legal problems.
So in a similar way, if you make a habit of 'thinking positive', you'll start to experience more positive things in your life.
And that's the beauty of meditation manifestation:
It's a powerful way to attract more positive energy into your life.
By setting your mind on a desired outcome through meditation, you'll fuel your own motivation, drive and ambition to achieve it.
How to Practice Meditation Manifestation
Here's how to practice meditation manifestation in 4 simple steps...
Have you ever tried meditating but felt restless?
There's a few key reasons for this:
When you're trying to meditate, you have to let your mind settle.
One major reason why it might be challenging to get your mind settled before meditation is tension.
If your body is tense, it'll be impossible to meditate as your mind will move from distraction to distraction.
Your body and mind are closely connected:
So if your body feels tense, your mind will feel tense too.
And therefore you won't be able to achieve the level of focus you need to meditate.
So start off by relaxing your body.
One of my favourite ways to relax physically is with a body scan:
- A simple way to do this is to close your eyes. With your eyes closed, begin by relaxing the top of your head, then move to your forehead.
- Once the front of your head is relaxed, work on relaxing the back of your head and then the middle of your head.
- The next step in getting your body relaxed is to focus on your eyes, nose, and lips.
- Relaxing your eyes, nose, and lips should be done one at a time. If you have not tried doing this before, focus on getting all the muscles in these parts of your body relaxed.
- Get your fingers, your fingertips, your wrists, your hands, your upper arms, your lower arms, your neck, your chin, your mouth, and your jaw relaxed.
- Then go on and relax your eyebrows, your eyelids, your cheeks.
- Relax your abdomen, your stomach, your lower back, your thighs, your hips, knees.
Meditation is all about focus in the present moment.
To do this, concentrate on your breathe.
Continue breathing in a normal way, but count your breathe in and out up to 10.
Once you get to 10 breathes, reset and count from 1 again.
Keep doing this for five minutes.
If you're struggling to increase your focus, don't worry - that's totally normal.
However, there are plenty of ways to give your focus a quick boost..
Don’t worry about your posture:
- Your posture during meditation is important
- But it's not something you should about too much
- Just find a comfortable position that you can enjoy - most people choose a chair or the lotus position (see the pic above)
Try Meditating in the Morning:
In the morning, your mind hasn't been bombarded with it's daily dose of distractions yet.
As a matter of fact, according to research carried out at the Montreal Neurological Institute, the brain shrinks by 0.5% throughout the day.
According to several neuroscience studies, the size of the brain has some relationship with how well it functions.
This affects your focus, attentiveness, and memory.
Therefore, if you practice meditation during the morning, you're more likely to experience a higher level of concentration - compared to the rest of the day.
You don’t have to close your eyes:
People meditate in a variety of different ways.
Some focus well when their eyes are closed, whilst others are focus better with their eyes open.
You know what rocks your boat.
If you can stay focused when your eyes are closed, then, you should always close your eyes when trying to focus.
However, if you can focus better with your eyes open, then keep your eyes open whilst trying.
3. Open Your Heart
When you're meditating, try to approach it gently.
You don't need to force yourself to manifest - instead, practice with no expectations.
Mantras are very effective for this.
For five minutes, try to slowly repeat, “My heart is open, I open my heart. I am good, I do good, and I am loved.”
Of course, there's no rule saying you have to stick to this exact mantra.
Just find a mantra that works for you and enjoy the process.
You might feel a little strange meditating with a mantra.
However, this is all about creating a positive, calm state of mind that's totally relaxed and focused.
Going through the process of 'heart opening' will help you to open up and feel a lot more relaxed.
But that's not all:
Also, it can also stimulate your 'vagus nerve’s tone'.
The stimulation of your vagus nerve’s tone activates your body’s sympathetic nervous system.
This in turn makes you feel calmer, more relaxed and more aware of the present moment.
Finally, it's time to manifest!
Start by focusing on just one goal that you really want to achieve.
As you get used to doing this, you can go on and increase the goals you want to focus on.
There are no limitations to what you can visualise with manifestation meditation.
Push yourself - and see what you come up with!
Your goal could be to break into the next level of your career, to find your soul mate, or to get better grades in your exam.
There are no limits.
The goal you decide to focus on is entirely up to you.
You might even have a lot of goals.
However, it's best to start out with just one goal.
When you're visualising your goal, here's some of the key questions to ask yourself:
- What changes would you experience if you had already achieved your goal?
- What type of neighborhood would you be living in?
- What type of car would you be driving?
- And what type of people would you be associating with?
If this is the first time you've tried meditation manifestation, it might be a bit of challenge.
But with practice, you'll quickly get better.
When you're first starting out, try focusing on each goal for five minutes.
Then when you're used to that, step it up to 10 minutes and see where this takes you.
Does Meditation Manifestation Work?
So here's the million dollar question:
Does meditation manifestation actually work?
Well, I'd say yes and no.
Some people believe that what will be will be - and we can’t influence the outcome of our lives in any way.
And that's true to an extent - a big part of our success is based on luck.
Plus there are some factors that are totally out of control:
Such as an economic recession or earthquake.
However, positive thinking will fuel your motivation to achieve:
Each time we think we cannot achieve something, we cancel out every positive thought we had about achieving a particular goal.
Whereas, when you desire something very strongly, you send out positive messages to the universe which increases the likelihood of it happening.
However, with meditation, we send out positive energy to the universe.
Plus with positive thinking, you can conscious suppress negative thoughts because you're now more aware of your limiting beliefs.
This is the reason why meditation is so effective for manifesting the things we want out of life.
What Is The Reality Gap?
The reality gap is what separates your desires - from what you genuinely believe you can achieve.
Think about this for a moment:
Let's say you want to make a million dollars within the next 5 years:
There may be a part of you that feels it's not achievable, or not a realistic goal.
And it's not unusual to experience a limiting belief like this!
But this will hinder your ability to manifest your goals.
And once this happens, your desire will become weak.
Reducing The Reality Gap
By making use of a combination of the law of attraction and guided meditation, you can significantly reduce the gap between what you desire and its actual manifestation.
And the smaller the reality gap, the higher the chance of achieving your desire.
This works because, with visualization (which is a process in meditation), our desires, positive thoughts, and beliefs, all become a lot stronger.
Tips for Practicing Manifestation Meditation
To get the most out of meditation manifestation, here's some of our top tips:
- You Should Relax: Relaxing is an important aspect of getting meditation manifestation to work for you. Why? Because there are certain states that we can achieve when we're calm and relaxed. Plus relaxing helps you focus and concentrate on your desires.
- Think about what you Desire: You have to visualise the reality of what you desire - even before it comes to you. This can be done by visualising how you'll experience your goals once they're achieved. Think about how you'll feel, what you'll experience and how it will look once your goals is achieved.
- Work Hard: It's not enough to think about something and just meditate on it. You have to put in the hard work too - this isn't magic!
- Clarity is Important: In the absence of clarity, you can’t truly achieve the full potential of meditation manifestation. You need to be sure of your goals - write down exactly what you want and when you'll achieve it by.
