You’ve read many of those books on manifestation and the law of attraction, but your life continues to remain ho-hum.
Your desires seem farther away. Your dream life seems more of a dream and your heart’s desires seem illusory.
You’ve read all the books, done all the exercises and visualized what you’ve wanted yet nothing… what gives?
Well, here’s the thing — the industry that is selling the idea of manifesting and the law of attraction has failed to mention one very important thing.
It’s not just how vividly you visualize or how much you visualize; it’s about your internal state of being.
If your internal state is vibrating at a low frequency and you’re filled with anger and resentment, it’s going to be difficult to manifest the life you want.
It’s not thoughts that attract things, but your being.
If you’re not vibrating from a place of joy and happiness, you’re not going to attract the experiences, people and dreams you desire.
So, the real key to manifesting your life’s desires is not about seeing what it is you want. The key to manifesting and attracting is to become the best and happiest version of yourself.
‘Hell, that sounds like a lot of work,’ you’re thinking to yourself, but not to fear – your personal development journey to your highest-vibrating self starts today.
Not only will you start manifesting more of what you want, you’ll also feel more at peace.
Here are 6 ways to clear your energy, remove internal blocks and increase your vibration so you can manifest the life you desire.
1 — Forgiveness
When you don’t forgive others, you’re carrying around plenty of resentment and anger within yourself.
It’s hard to feel good when you’re in this state. The only way to let go of the bad vibes and negative energy is to forgive the person for what they’ve done.
Use compassion, empathy, love and kindness to forgive.
Here’s the thing about forgiveness. You don’t wait until you’re ready to forgive because more than likely you’ll never be “ready” to forgive. Instead of waiting, forgive now and reap the benefits of forgiveness.
Clear the trespass. Stop repeatedly hurting yourself and cease being the prisoner of someone else’s actions.
2 — Let go of grudges
You know all those petty grudges you’re holding onto in life on a daily basis?
When strangers take your parking spot, cut you off in traffic or grab the last box of your favorite cereal from the shelf?
When your friends forget to invite you to a party? When you don’t receive thanks for a gift you sent? When you feel under-appreciated?
It’s so easy to take offense every day – you’ll find all kinds of real-life and online bullies.
With grudges come more hurt and more pain.
Wouldn’t it be easier to acknowledge the wrongdoing and let it go so that it’s no longer your burden and responsibility?
Clear your energy by letting go of small hurts and annoyances.
3 — Feel your feelings
If you’re a guy like me, you have learned to deny and hide your feelings.
While growing up, we heard that showing our feelings was inappropriate.
Not surprisingly, society and our families taught us to not feel, to repress our feelings.
Feelings are a normal part of human emotions. Hiding them and repressing them will create uncomfortable internal conflicts and negative energy throughout your body.
Allow yourself to feel those feelings that develop in your life, especially those strong ones of anger, fear and pain.
If you don’t know what that looks like or how to do it, when you’re feeling strong waves of emotions, write them down or share them with someone.
Acknowledge the emotions rolling into your life.
4 — Let go of judgment and comparisons
When you’re mentally putting others down or comparing yourself to others and putting yourself down, you’re just creating more negativity and bad vibes.
Learn to let go of judgment by putting aside differences and boundaries between yourself and others. Try to see all people as one and connected and your walls of division will lower.
Stop comparing and start living your own life.
Realize that you gain little by doing either and that both create zones of negativity that make manifesting more difficult.
5 — End rumors and gossip
You’re likely engaging in rumor-mongering and gossip for one of two reasons: boredom or to feel better about yourself.
Engaging in these activities may give you a temporary high, but it’s helping you feel better about yourself at the expense of others. Engaging in rumors and gossip will ultimately make you feel worse about yourself.
Stop this practice out of compassion for others and kindness to yourself.
If you have to say something about someone else, flip the script and start pointing out what you appreciate about them and why you’re grateful for them.
6 — Cultivate love within
Achieving much of what I’ve talked about above comes down to loving yourself and being comfortable in your own skin.
If you’ve never accepted yourself or loved yourself, you’ll likely need external validation or to put down others to feel better about yourself.
If you love yourself, you’ll be good to yourself. You will deal with negative self-talk with compassion. You’ll treat your body and spirit well. Get out of toxic relationships. Get more sleep.
Self-love is a practice that takes time to work on and daily habits to build up.
A key component to manifesting is being in a positive and emotionally healthy place.
If annoyance, anger and resentment fill you or you engage in many of the practices I mentioned above, you’re only going to manifest negativity and unfulfilled desires in your life.
Your mind matters, but your internal state of being matters even more in terms of manifesting your life’s desires.
In a nutshell: Be a good person and try to do right so that you can vibrate positive feelings. Focus on your personal growth and personal development to become a better and higher-vibrating human.
Then step back and allow life to manifest all the goodness you want.
