We’ve all heard about manifestation, but is it the real deal, tangible and capable of working for anyone, or is it limited to working only for those who believe in it? Let’s start with the basics - origins.

Manifestation in its purest form is a powerful tool that can help you bring your dreams to reality. It's the art of aligning your thoughts, feelings, and actions to attract the happiness, relationship, work success or life in general you deserve.

But it takes more than just positive thinking to make your dreams come true, no matter what numerous books and so-called ‘gurus’ say. You have to put in some ‘dream work’.

To successfully manifest your desires, you need to follow the four pillars of manifestation: commitment and consistency, operate from a place of inspiration not, desperation, it's all in your feelings, and follow the signs.



The first pillar of successful manifestation is commitment and consistency. To manifest your desires, you need to be committed to your goals and consistent in your efforts.

This means setting clear intentions. Journal them down for extra self-accountability and. take action toward your goals every day; putting a line through them, as they are achieved.

Commitment means that you are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your desires. It means that you are willing to invest time, effort, and resources into your goals. When you are committed, you don't let setbacks or obstacles deter you from your path. You keep going, no matter what.

Consistency means that you are taking action toward your goals every day. It means that you are creating positive habits that support your manifestation journey. When you are consistent, you build momentum as you work toward your goals. You create a sense of ease and that fluid rhythm helps you attract what you desire


The second pillar of successful manifestation is to operate from a place of inspiration, not desperation. When you operate from a place of inspiration, you are coming from a place of abundance, joy, and gratitude. You are entirely focusing on what you want to create, rather than what you desperately need.

Desperation houses your fears of scarcity - never being or having enough. When you are desperate, you are focused on what you don't have, rather than what you want to create. This creates a negative energy that keeps you separated from what you desire.

To operate from a place of inspiration, you need to cultivate a sense of gratitude and abundance. You have so many good things in your life and the things you want to create. When you come from a place of inspiration, you attract more of what you want.


Take a moment to think about this. What are your visualization skills? Can you ‘feel’ you have something, before you can 'see it' in black and white?

The third pillar of successful manifestation is that it's all in your feelings. The key to manifesting your desires is to feel as if you already have them. This means believing that your desires are already yours, even if you can't see them yet.

Your feelings are a powerful tool for manifestation because they create a vibration that attracts what you desire. Are you kind to and about yourself? When you feel as if you already have what you want, you create a magnetic force that draws your desires to you.

To create the feeling of having your desires, you need to focus on the positive aspects of your desires. You need to imagine exactly what it would feel like 'winner' and let that feeling fill you up. The more you focus on the feeling, the more you attract what you want.


What you want won't just land in your lap. You have to do the work, to get what you want. You have to follow the signs and you will be able to successfully manifest.

The fourth pillar of successful manifestation is to follow the signs. Manifestation is not just all about positive thinking; it's much more than that. It is about taking the action to make your goals happen.

When you take action, you send a message to the universe that you are ready to receive what you desire.

Following the signs means being open to opportunities that come your way. Yes, it means being willing to take risks and step out of your comfort zone.

By following the signs, you are aligning yourself with the universe, allowing the universe to guide you to what you desire.


Absolutely not! In fact, sometimes you can ‘wish’ too hard and get so tied up in the sense that some situation, place, job, or even person is supposed to be yours.

You must understand that there are no rewards in life if you journey through it with a sense of entitlement. It will only lead to your disappointment. Sometimes not ‘winning’ gets to even the most easy-going of us. The Omaze Cornwall house, which was my real-life dream house, is one of my favorite spots in the UK.

I had my room picked out, the perfect spot to read my books and the celebratory meal I was going to make in the kitchen. That’s how sure I was that I was going to win.

Even until this day, I still have a Pinterest board crammed with images of the house, including the floor plans I know this will make me sound like a complete nut, but I still intend to live in that house or one just like it. That’s how sure I am about that house.

Joking aside, the world as we know it is not, however, wrapped up in magic lanterns, guarded by brightly colored genies just waiting to get out of their lanterns, to grant our wishes.

By being prepared and open to the four pillars of manifestation, along with the law of attraction, you can raise your potential to attract what you want.
