Plenty of Law of Attraction experts have written books about how to manifest our desires. And usually, their advice relies heavily upon practices such as visualization and affirmations.
And it’s true: affirmations and visualization have a lot to teach us about how to manifest our desires. But these practices speak nothing of energy alignment, which is essential to every successful manifestation.
What is Energy Alignment?
Energy alignment is simply a state of coherence, or unobstructed communication, between the physical and the non-physical aspects of you.
You might think of the non-physical aspect of you as your soul, as your spirit, life force, or inner being. The name you give to your non-physical essence isn’t important. But acknowledging that this part of you exists is a first essential step in learning how to manifest your desires.
To connect with your spiritual essence, simply turn your attention to the energy stream that animates your body and mind. This is the force that moves with your breath, that inspires ideas and new possibilities within your heart. This energy is the very essence of you. It’s the force that created the universe and all that’s in it. You are not separate from this energy, but an integral part of it.
How Energy Alignment Helps You Manifest
This non-physical part of you is the source of inspiration, of divine guidance, of connection to a greater purpose. And there are many benefits to being aligned to this higher frequency: Your senses are enlivened, your intuition is on point, and your innate skills and resources are functioning at their highest. In this aligned state, you have a natural feeling for how to manifest your heart’s desire. In fact, desired outcomes come almost about effortlessly. This is because you are magnetizing inspired moments to you, not chasing after them.
No doubt you’ve experienced many aligned moments in your life. You may have described them as feeling like you’re on a roll,” or “firing on all cylinders.” Athletes refer to this state as being in the zone. When you’re in an internal state of alignment with your broader, wiser self, you feel more beautiful and fluid than usual. You might even feel invincible. Because you are accessing your whole self, you’re at your most creative and resourceful. Solutions present themselves easily. When you’re aligned, you feel like you’re gliding through your day.
You find yourself in the right place at the right time. You move through the world in a state of ease and flow, or what some call grace. And in this state, you intuitively know how to manifest your desires. Manifestation happens through the process of attraction, and when you’re aligned, you are at your most attractive.
The Manifestational Power of Alignment
In every waking moment, you’re sending out a vibrational signal that is transmitted to the farthest corners of the universe. Your thoughts broadcast an energetic vibration. So do your emotions, your current and chronic moods, your dominant beliefs, and your moment-to-moment expectations. And this energy moves in currents and streams that are always leading in a particular direction.
The manifestation of everything – from a choice parking space to a galaxy – is orchestrated by this process of attraction. Attraction is the mechanism that summons the energy that turns thoughts into things. When you understand how to apply this force, you will understand how to manifest any outcome you desire.
Here is a 3-step process for coming into alignment with something you desire:
Step #1: Consciously identify what you want.
Take a moment to reflect on each area of your life and identify something that you currently want to manifest. For the time being, let go of the particulars of how to manifest it, and just let yourself dream of an improvement.
It could be a condition, such as landing a better job. It could be a tangible object, such as a new or newer car. Or it could be something immaterial, like a better-feeling relationship or more energy and vitality. Once you’ve identified what you want, speak it to yourself, either silently or out loud, as a statement of intent.
Step #2: Ask yourself “Why” you want to manifest this.
Beneath every desire is a desire to experience a heightened or enhanced emotional state. We don’t seek to understand how to manifest more money just to feel the paper between our fingers. We associate more money with a particular feeling, like freedom, choice, peace or ease. And so, once you’ve identified something you want, ask yourself why you want to manifest this particular desire.
What about this desire inspires you or lights you up? How do you believe you will feel once you’ve attained it? Will you feel joyful? Lovable? Worthy? Secure? The underlying reason behind your desire to learn how to manifest is your desire to feel a particular way. Identifying the feeling behind the desire is an important step to learning how to manifest.
Step #3: Align with the feeling of having already created what you want.
Most people are waiting for their desire to manifest before they’ll allow themselves to feel the joy of having created it. But this is a backward approach when learning how to manifest.
In fact, the feeling essence of your desire exists, right now in this moment. It exists as a particular energetic frequency that you have the ability to connect with and attune to. And through the power of your imagination, you can align with this frequency right now.
As children, we instinctively knew how to find alignment. And as a result, we were closer to understanding how to manifest our desires. In its most basic terms, alignment is simply the state of feeling good. It’s bringing all of yourself into harmony with what you desire to create.
The connection between you and your higher self is not something that needs to be created.
You were born with an innate ability to align with the broader aspect of you. And you are hard-wired to receive a continual transmission of universal intelligence and insight. By becoming receptive to this universal energy stream, you will understand how to manifest your desires. And you will be led to the choices that will bring about the most joyous, satisfying life experiences.
