Manifestation is simply the process of making an intention real. It’s about taking something that’s just an idea in your mind and calling it into this physical plane.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary describes manifestation as “one of the forms that something has when it appears or occurs” or “a perceptible, outward, or visible expression”. Which makes sense (and you’ll see why in a little), but to me a manifestation (noun) is something you bring forth into your physical life experience through past thoughts, feelings, or beliefs. This could be an experience, an object, a person… anything!
Therefore, to manifest (verb) something is to bring something forth into your physical life experience by using your thoughts, feelings, or beliefs.
We create our reality whether consciously or not constantly. Have you ever missed a bus or subway when you woke up in a hurry and was worrying of coming late? Or has it ever happened to you that you wanted something so much but deep inside you didn’t believe that it could be yours and it hasn’t happened?
These are all examples of manifestation. The problem isn’t learning how to manifest, we all do it all the time. The true challenge is rather how we can manifest consciously so we don’t feel powerless and like we’re dependent on a luck or any external factor.
I was thinking about moments when I’ve manifested something that I thought would not have normally happened. These moments were small miracles and I immediately understood that I’ve consciously changed the course of events. You know this feeling when it’s almost too late, things look bad, and then all of a sudden everything turns out well.
