This idea of manifesting what you want to attract it to you is really intriguing to me. I don’t even have to subscribe to any mystical, spiritual reasons it might work to give it a try (and I can acknowledge the way life is sometimes bigger and badder than what we want). I think focusing on what you want makes a couple changes right away: It focuses you on the positive rather than the negative, so you’re concentrating in the right direction. And, secondly, you’re more likely to make choices that bring you to your goal if you keep that goal in mind. Say my wish is, “I will live comfortably in a clean, beautiful space.” If I repeat that to myself daily, then I’ll be able to see what does and doesn’t fit in with that vision. I might get rid of clutter or clean the kitchen or paint some furniture, all to help the vision in my mind come true. My eyes will be open, and any decisions I make I can weigh against the vision in my mind, letting go of anything that doesn’t work with it without a sense of conflict. I already think I manifest when it comes to parenting, because I have clear visions of how I want to relate to my children as we all keep growing together.
