What if I told you that right now, you are already a master at applying manifestation techniques? And that everything that’s now a part of your life has come by way of your personal, vibrational invitation?

This news would make you feel really powerful– if the manifestations in your life were aligned with your heart’s desires. But what if the current conditions in your life are far from how you’d like them to be?

The truth is, we are all powerful manifestors.

In every waking moment, we are transmitting a powerful signal to which the universe is constantly responding. The quality of the experiences, situations, and relationships we attract are always a match to the vibrations we’re sending out.

This means if your dominant vibe is one of joy, contentment, or enthusiasm, then great-feeling experiences are coming your way. But if you’re frequently in the range of despair, depression, or hopelessness, the experiences you’re attracting probably match that vibe.

The secret to manifesting anything you desire is to close this gap: To create harmony between the vibration of what you want, and the vibration of what you currently have.

Here are 3 powerful manifestation techniques to reset your personal vibration, so you invite the right things into your life.

Manifestation Technique #1: Get clear about what it is you want.

If there’s some aspect of your life that is less than pleasing to you, then you’re already clear about what you don’t want. For example, if you’re in an unsatisfying relationship, you already know you don’t want to feel ignored or discounted. If you don’t have as much money as you want or need, you already know you don’t want to feel anxious or deprived. If you’re carrying more weight than looks or feels good to you, you know for sure that you no longer want to feel heavy.

But beneath all of these “don’t wants,” lies a burning desire about what you do want. And the first, most essential manifestation technique is to powerfully and clearly identify this desire.

So, in the case of not wanting to feel ignored or discounted, you simply need to ask yourself how you’d like to feel instead. When you conjure your idea of a perfect relationship, how do you imagine yourself feeling? Is it seen? Understood? Important? Special?

Each of us will answer this question differently because each of us wants different things.

The important thing at this stage of the manifestation process is to uncover the YES that is buried underneath your No. It might sound something like this:

Yes, I want to feel prosperous! I want to feel in love. I desire to feel light, energetic and vital in my body.

In any area where you’re unhappy, go beyond the awareness of what you don’t want, to clarify what you do.

Manifestation Technique #2: Actively invite the energy of your “yes” into your life.

Without realizing it, most of us invest the majority of our attention noticing, complaining about, or dwelling in what’s unwanted. Attention is our most precious, valuable resource. What we give our attention to, we nourish and strengthen and draw into our experience.

So what happens when the lion’s share of your attention is focused on what’s missing, or what’s not quite right? You’re using your most precious resource to miscreate rather than to create on purpose. You’re applying the manifestation technique of summoning the powerful Law of Attraction, but using it against yourself, not for your benefit.

To turn the tide of this unwanted momentum, you’re going to have to summon your imagination.

Ask yourself: If this aspect of my life were unfolding exactly how I desire, what would that look and feel like? And more importantly, how would I look and feel? What thoughts would I offer about this situation? What expectations would I hold and what mood or energy would I consistently bring to this aspect of my life?

In applying this second manifestation technique, you’ll begin to notice that the power really is in your hands.

You may not have control over what other people say or do, but you always have control over your response. This means you have the ability to decide in advance how you want to show up for every meaningful encounter. Do you want to drag the same unfulfilled energy with you into each new moment? Or will you choose to show up embodying the energy of your desire?

The technique of inviting any new energy into your life is really no different than inviting dear friends to a dinner party. Before you make the call, you align your mood with the fun you know will be had; the deliciousness of the company. And then, from your established energetic stance of eager anticipation and connection, you invite others in.

The technique for manifesting anything you desire works in the exact same way. First you put yourself in the internal state of having already manifested what you want, and allow that signal to dominate.

Manifestation Technique #3: Allow the energy of what you desire to guide your choices.

If you’d already manifested the love of your life or the prosperity you seek, how would that alter your daily choices? Would the presence of that desired reality change the way you care for yourself? Would it cause you to make any adjustments in your daily routine? Are there things you would do – and things you would definitely not do – if you were already living your desire?

Most of the world is reacting to life and allowing the conditions that surround them to influence their behavior. For example, if you’re in an unhappy relationship, your unhappiness may cause you to neglect your personal care routine. But what if you knew the love of your life was on the verge of coming into your life? That knowledge would inspire you to an entirely different set of actions.

Choose to stop being someone who needs positive conditions to justify feeling positive!

Decide instead to be someone who’s clear about what you desire, and allow the energy of that desire to guide you. This is how you can apply the manifestation techniques you’re already using to attracting the right things into your life.
