Manifesting 101: Mastering the Art of Getting What You Want

Manifesting is defined as the process of intentionally creating what we want. It is when our dreams (thoughts or ideas) materialize in our physical world. Sounds woo woo? Is it really possible to have our ideal job, perfect partner, dream house and the life we truly want just by manifesting? I think you already know my answer and that is a big fat YES!

I started practicing manifesting for a number of years now and it’s safe to say that majority of my goals happened – my nail salon in Valenzuela City, my websites The Wealthy Pinay and Filipina Expat, and our travel in Sydney this year just to name a few.

But note, it takes more than being a positive thinker for a goal to manifest. And I’ll be honest that the steps I’m sharing with you are easier said than done but believe me girl, with constant practice it becomes easier overtime that you’ll become a PRO!

In this post, I will share with you 6 steps on how to manifest your goal

1. Define what you want

In manifesting, you have to be clear on what you truly want to achieve. Don’t just  say you want a house or travel abroad. Don’t be vague and just declare your desire to have a job or be happy. “I want to be sexy” or “I want to be in a relationship” are intentions as muddy as Pasig River. You have to be clearer than that.

Rather, be specific as you want it to be.

  • I want to be in a relationship with a good guy who will respect and love me unconditionally (bonus points if he is good looking and earning 6 figures in a month)
  • I want to buy a 2-bedroom condo unit in SM Green Residences by 2020
  • Set-up my own Japanese restaurant by 2022.
  • Buy a Siomai King franchise by next year.
  • Lose 20 pounds by end of the year.

If you wish, and I highly recommend, write down your intention on your journal. It would be better if you write it on an A4 size paper and place the paper on your wall or bedroom mirror, somewhere you can see often.

2. Believe it is possible

If you can’t perceive it, you can’t achieve it. You can never have something you don’t think is possible for you. That’s a fact. You can never be the President of the Philippines if you can’t imagine being one. There’s no way you can go to the moon if you can’t even see yourself travelling in Hong Kong. Can’t see yourself marrying someone like Channing Tatum? Then you can never be with someone who’s like Channing Tatum.

My examples above are so over the top that I don’t believe they are possible for me either. And I don’t aspire to have those. But can you imagine being the boss of your own company? Can you imagine sponsoring a feeding program for 100 children? Can you see yourself travelling first class with your family? Can you? Because I can for myself.

In manifesting, you have to truly believe that your goal is achievable. Don’t worry on how or when will it happen. It’s not your job to figure it out – it’s the Universe job!

3. Feel the emotions / Practical visualization

After setting your intention, and you know for a fact that it is achievable, now is the time to let the joy and excitement flow into your body. If you do this exercise correctly, you will actually feel a tingling sensation (it’s amazing!)

This is what children do – DAYDREAMING!

Close your eyes and imagine what it feels like living your dream. For sure you will definitely smile, you can feel your body elevating, and your heart is overflowing with joy. Smell it, feel it, hear it. At this phase, you are now attracting  the positive energy of the Universe. During this step, the thoughts you are creating and the emotion that goes with it creates a vibration. As you are thinking of positive and joyful goals, you are then creating positive energy which attracts the same.

This is the same principle whenever we let ourselves be affected by whatever unfortunate incident in the morning. Notice that most of the time, our day just goes downhill from there. It’s because our negative thought creates negative vibration which then attracts negative energy.

You have the option now. Do you want to create lots of positive vibration or surround yourself with negative energy?

4. Keep positive vibration high

I’ll be honest, it’s very rare that your intention will show up with just a day or two of doing these manifesting exercises. It could take weeks, months or even years of conscious and subconscious manifesting. And just like with everything that takes some time, either we perfect the task because of repetition OR we would give up after a few tries.

With our busy lives, we can easily forget our goal. How can you focus on having that beautiful beach house when there’s chaos in the morning making sure that kids won’t be late in school. Followed by terrible traffic going to work. And dealing with toxic colleagues and boss at work. You might be dead-tired after a very long day. With this daily grind, no wonder you can’t focus on anything else.

This is when having visual reminders helps. Remember that A4 size paper you pasted on your wall? That’s not there as a decoration. Look at it every morning and remember the joy you felt when you wrote that goal. Let the positive vibration flows again in your body. Don’t lose your patience. What you want will be given to you at the exact time you need to receive it.

5. Take guided actions

This is where most people will fail. Remember, the Universe gives us what we want. However most of the time, it is not always handed to us on a golden plate ready for our enjoyment. For example, I want The Wealthy Pinay to be a household name that all Filipinos recognize. That’s my goal and I am doing exercises to manifest that.

However, even if I do Steps 1-4 continuously for 1 year but I not write anything on my website nor promote it, if I’m too lazy or embarrass to create videos or posts, do you think I’ll reach my goal? Impossible, right?

Instead I listen to the ‘signs’ shown to me. I saw Brother Bo Sanchez sharing regular Facebook videos of his inspirational talks and a small voice inside my head says “you should do the same too”. Obviously, my first reaction is ‘no way!’. My introvert self can’t imagine talking in front of camera and sharing it to this world we call internet. I just can’t!

BUT, and this is the big but, I am everyday being reminded that my goal is for The Wealthy Pinay to be a household name in the Philippines. It will not happen overnight if I don’t take guided actions.

At the course of your manifesting, you will hear, see and feel these ‘signs’. Follow them. 

6. Express gratitude and create good karma

Everyday, be thankful for the opportunity to create what you want. You have an abled-body. You have the mind and intellect to think. You are alive. We have all the resources we need to create our ideal life and it’s just for us to claim them.

Remember, all of us are interconnected. Our actions, words and thoughts – positive or negative – will affect someone. Everything in the Universe is connected with each other, and if we influence one thing, we can influence another. Do good things. Say good things. Think good things.


Your life is the canvas, you are the artist. What do you choose to create?

All so true! I need to be more specific with all my manifestation


[…] Mindset is a huge part of manifestation. When we do marketing, our main goal is attract customers. We think of ways to get their attention, to notice us and eventually see our value that they will finally decide to purchase from us. The whole process generates positive vibrations coming from our excitement, optimism and pride. And you know that vibrations attract more of what we release right? […]
