The Law of Attraction is just one law of the Universe that people have become extra obsessed with because it promises to bring you exactly what you want.
There are so many dimensions to this and there’s many different things that we need to take into account when we truly want to create something new: our subconscious beliefs, our actions, and the identity we’re embodying; as well as the thoughts and intentions that we’re putting out.
One of the big beliefs which can hold us back when we want to manifest something with the LOA is the belief that what we want isn’t really possible for us. That’s why I think it can be helpful to do some of these intention setting rituals to solidify your intention with something practical using one of the manifesting techniques I’ve listed below.
You’ll especially enjoy these if you’re into spells or anything witchy like that (as I always have been) and I like to call these… my witchuals.
Water is highly conductive to energy, more so than solid matter.
This means that you can supercharge water with intentions quite easily, and there are multiple ways that you can go about this.
When I was at a crystal healing workshop in Glastonbury a few years ago, we charged a clear quartz tumblestone with intention and then left it in a bottle of water for the duration of the class. When we drank it 2 hours later, I could feel a tingling in my throat and it had a different sensation to just drinking plain old water.
This is how the 2 cup method works. To do it, take 2 cups and put a post-it note on each one. On one cup, write your current situation, and on the other cup, write the thing that you want to manifest.
Fill your current situation cup up with water and then pour all of its contents into the 2nd cup with your future manifestation written on. Then, drink the entire contents of that cup.
While you’re doing this, the intention is the most important piece; and as you drink the water in the cup with your future manifestation written on, feel that the water representing that future reality is integrating with your entire being (because your body is 60%+ water!)
When you put that empty cup back down, know that it’s done and then forget about it until it manifests.
Again, this is a great one if you’re into witchy things, candles or fire.
Write your intention on a piece of paper and then place it under a brand new candle that you’re happy to burn all the way through. This means that I use different candles to my day-to-day ones for this because you’re not lighting it to enjoy the warm ambience and candlelight – you’re lighting it because you know that once the candle finally burns out, your intention has been released as a prayer to the Universe.
Therefore, you’ll need to put the candle on top of your intention somewhere that you don’t mind it being left day and night until it naturally fizzles out. If you’re worried about this, you could put them in an empty bath or put the candle in a small bowl of water with your note of intention underneath.
The most important thing is that you don’t blow out the candle before it’s naturally burned out. When you find that the candle has finished, then again – forget about it, surrender, and know that your intention has been taken care of.
Feeling into our desires is what gets us ready for them, and when our subconscious isn’t ready for something, it will automatically repel and avoid the actions which could get us closer to making our manifestation happen.
One of the ways that we can reprogram our subconscious mind is with visualisation.
The mind works well with images, especially if you’re a visual learner (like me). So, if the first thing you do when you wake up and the last thing you do at night before you go to sleep is visualise, your brain can embed those images into your subconscious.
At these times, your brain is going from an Alpha/Beta state, to a Theta state, to a Delta state when it’s asleep. As it moves through these brainwaves, the subconscious mind (or ego) is quietened, making your mind more suggestible.
Visualising the life you want – with all of the colour, sounds, smells and feelings associated with it – upon waking and drifting off to sleep will program your mind to welcome your manifestation.
I’m sure that most of you reading this already do journaling in some form or another, but if you don’t, it’s time to start!
Writing, for me, is the most powerful way to set an intention and the things that I wrote 2/3 years ago are now in the reality that I’m living today. When we write something repeatedly day after day, again we’re imprinting it into our subconscious mind.
Therefore, I made this FREE 11.11 MANIFEST REQUEST for you to download and print for your intention setting practice. This is the type of journaling that will attract your desires to you – simply write your intentions and then put them in a drawer for you to find years later once you’re living the life you’ve scripted here.
For the last 4 years, I’ve made a paper vision board at the start of every year. However, 2021 was different…
I moved my vision board onto Pinterest, which actually works even better for me.
First of all, it’s entirely free, which means that you don’t have to worry about paper, ink or going to WHSmiths to buy an A2 piece of card – and you can change it throughout the year. You can easily add or remove pins as your vision changes.
For extra manifesting oomph, set a picture of this Pinterest vision board as your desktop background, phone screensaver, and look at the images during your morning and nighttime visualisations.
Your breath is your life force, so by breathing in your manifestation with intention, you are giving it life.
If you’re doing a full breathwork session, you can set your intention beforehand and then know that it is done and released at the end. I always get a huge high at the end of breathwork sessions where I feel totally elated and it’s a great time to receive any breakthroughs about how you can take the next action steps for your manifestation.
With breathwork, always make sure that you have a pen and journal next to you because it’s a great time to channel what you know you need to do next but maybe have been ignoring.
Any type of breathwork will do or even just a few deep breaths in the morning with the intention that you’re breathing in your manifestation before you head off to work.
As with all of these techniques, it’s all about the intention rather than the action itself!
