A Simple Exercise to Increase Your Manifestation Power

November 18th, 2007 by Ryan

Use the Law of Attraction to Increase Your Manifestation with this Written Exercise Those of you who are familiar with the Law of Attraction know how much creative power each of us have in our life.  According to Abraham, there are two step to deliberate creation:

1) A deep wanting

2) Expecting or allowing that desire to manifest

What most people do is they get this deep wanting, such as "I want to buy that car!" and at that moment their manifestation starts. Then their ego gives them a reality check and it says "but there is no way I can afford it" and bam, the manifestation stops in its tracks.

So to help you fine tune both parts of deliberate creation, take out a piece of paper for this exercise.  

Step 1: On the front side write all the reasons that you want the thing you want.  Keep writing until you can't think of anything else.  This increases your wanting of it.

Step 2: On the back side write all the reasons why you will get the thing that you want.  This increases your expectation and allowing of it.

It is recommended to only work on manifesting at most 3 things at a time until you improve your skill.  If you want to focus your energy even more, do it for just one.

    Also, don’t discount more traditional methods of cause and effect.

    I wanted an Italian soda late Saturday night and got my car keys, drove to Starbucks, and told the universe (young guy, twenty something) I wanted one. I obtained.

    I’m not a firm believer in the LOA as it is commonly taught – but I’ve found it to be useful. It seems like when I’m purposefully working on a tough goal, and there is a problem, I’ll attract an answer. Next most common is LOA experience for me is when I’m almost done with something and the last 10% is the most difficult. Then I’ll attract the finishing touch to the insurmountable – but not until I’ve done the ground work.

    I’ve never been able to attract something “from scratch”. Has anybody here been able to materialize something from just intention manifestation?

  2. Ryan Says:

    You bring up a common theme that I hear from people who know about the law of attraction: What about taking action, how does that play into it? From my experience of transforming intention into reality, I believe that action, although necessary, hangs up alot of people.

    They think, ‘well I want to get this new car but its not gonna come out of thin air, i have to take action’ which is true but the process of focusing on the action opposes trusting the universe, which is the allowing stage of manifestation.

    When using the LOA, action will be necessary, but manifestation doesnt require you to think about the action (which is what most people do). Instead, action will be a natural consequence of using the law correctly.

    By being in vibrational harmony with the desire, the intense positive emotion will drive you to take the RIGHT action. You will know it when it comes time to take the action.

    Basically, worrying about the action is simply being stuck in the head too much. I know I still do it sometimes. I’ll have to make this a post soon to better clarify this idea. Thanks for the input.

    Great blog. I love your topics.

    JJ 😀

  4. Sue Ann Edwards Says:

    Hi Ryan! I would share that when it comes to taking action, it is always more pleasant to take action on what is beneficial to us and the goal we have desired. Most of the time, our actions are based on Doubt, not Confidence. Simple because these acts are based on Self Doubt, will see to it that our manifestations lacks Power of manifesting anyhning other than a reflection of our Doubt.

    A post I recently shared, accomplishes the balancing and integrating of the 7 chakras or, energy vortices. When these are balanced, they form a tube of Light, corresponding to our spinal column. At that time, assimilation and integration of the next set of 7, begin.

    Here’s the post in case anyone is interested. There ARE other ways to accomplish things, besides giving ourselves headaches thinking about it.

    Hi Ryan. I’ve tagged you. Visit my blog for the rules.


  6. Bobby Rio Says:

    I live by this principle. Have you read “Real Magic” by Wayne Dyer? It is a life changing book.

  7. Ryan Says:

    JJ: Thanks 🙂

    Sue Ann: That’s very true, often doubt clouds our judgement. Many times we even know it too because our gut or intuition tells us otherwise and in the end we say to ourselves ‘I knew it, but I just didn’t listen to myself.’ Trusting the self is a great skill to practice. Your exercise is also very relaxing as well.

    Kab625: Tagged eh, interesting.

    Bobby Ro: I haven’t but I’ll have to check it out. I have some of Wayne Dyer’s audio programs and they have great energy and wisdom.

  8. The Secret Gathering Says:

    Very interesting!

  9. law of attraction Says:

    I’ve been working with visualization video’s they’re very effective.

    Like this one on metacafe:

    they really help to bring together a more focused mindset and help to accelerate the process.

  10. Ryan Says:

    Secret Gathering, good to hear.
    Secret LOA, thanks for sharing the video. I’ve made a few of those myself to help raise my vibrations, very cool to see other like minded people doing the same.

  11. law of attraction Says:

    The best video I’ve found for manifesting is the short one that the guys at The Secret produced. I put it on my iPod and watch it daily. I’ve manifested lots of ‘unexpected checks in the mail.’


  12. Ryan Says:

    I’ll have to check that one out, thanks for the tip Colin.

  13. Olivier - 7 laws of attraction Says:

    We need to get our motives correct. For else we will put a lot of energy into something that we really do not want. But unfortunately, many people do this sort of things. I also am sometimes guilty of this.
    I guess it comes from a fundamental laziness to think our motives through, and to write them down, as you suggest.

    Its hard to believe that most of our health or lack of is connected to simple points of energy that can be controlled by our mind.

  15. Charles - The Success Secrets Guy Says:

    The law of attraction, I believe works hand-in-hand with the law of gratitude. This is my story and my life-changing lesson of gratitude.

    One day I was teaching a weekend college course on business start-up. The elevator was broken, so I had to lug my dolley of 4 boxes, by hand, up three flights of stairs. I was outside, and it was a little hot and sunny, but not unbearably unpleasant. I began to complain and grumble about how the school should have the elevators working and so on and so forth. I was angry that I had to go through all of this trouble to get to the top of the stairs.

    Then, just as I reached to the top of the stairs, a young man, a quadriplegic, in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the neck down, operating his chair with just the slight movements of his bent-to-the-side neck, saw me and with a big, beautiful smile said to me, “Nice day, isn’t it.” I was stunned with embarrassment. Here I was moaning and groaning with all of my faculties and in perfect health, and here is a young man paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair telling me how pleasant a day it was. From that life-changing moment to this day, I have never complained about any physical labor again. “Only by the grace of God there go I.”

  16. Ryan Says:

    Charles, wow man, thats a powerful and moving story. It’s like that saying “I thought I was poor because I had no shoes. Until the day I met a man with no feet.” It seems like you LIVED that experience. Cheers man and I appreciate you sharing this story with us. Thank you.

  17. M Ranch Says:

    It certainly seems like a good idea but at the same time, I think there should be another bit of paper with the reasons why buying a new car isn’t important. There are always people worse off than ourselves just like Charles talked about.

  18. Is the Law of Attraction That Important? « Tight on Money Says:

    […] 19, 2008 I was just reading this article about the Law of Attraction and it made really think.  Not so much about the post itself but one of the commenters Charles.  […]

  19. Vin Andella Says:

    The Secret movie was an awesome example of how the law of attraction can summon the universal powers to manifest people situations and material things into your life.

    All of the presenters had compelling stories that described in detail how their lives changed once they applied the secret principals.

    I watched the movie several times only to discover the secret was never revealed nor did they explain how to actually make the law of attraction work in your favor.

    I searched for a year and finally discovered exactly how the secret law of attraction works.

    Anybody can put the principals to work for them and change their life dramatically in a short period of time.

    It’s true, they are laws and they work all the time but its your choice to make them work for you and not against you.

  20. Ryan Says:

    M Ranch you bring up a good point about manifesting that I think Vin was also hinting at…That’s the process of letting go of what you want, surrendering it to the universe.

    That’s the crucial piece that many people forget about and the secret kind of breezed over it. If you are attached to what you want to manifest, then you will eventually become frustrated if it doesn’t show up.

    You’ll know you’re on the right track when you want something (like the car), yet are completely at peace if you do not get it.

  21. Matt Says:

    I have always struggled getting this law of attraction into the real world. i am going to try this an see if I can get it to work for me. I will succeed!

  22. Rob Says:

    I think getting the law of attraction has a lot to do with your brainwave state.

    I believe that you can get the most out of the LOA by working on your goals when you are in Alpha state.

    It is possible to induce Alpha state by using brainwave entrainment. I have software and audio on my website designed specifically for that purpose.

    If you can’t get into the right vibration then you are not going to attract what you want.

    I have been using brainwave wentrainment to work with the LOa for a little while now and the results I’ve had are interesting.

  23. Your Vision Statement Says:

    I think this is a very important thing. This blog post is very interesting and very well done. Thank you very much, I appreciate it!


  24. Ryan Says:

    Cool Matt, good luck. Rob, that sounds very interesting and I’m sure brainwave type software and audio can help us along the way. For me, I prefer to go within for altered states. Thanks for sharing.

    Jim, thanks man, I appreciate it.

  25. Glen Rees BSc, ND: Your Spiritual nutrition & antiaging researcher Says:

    Hint: To gain much more from your capacity to manifest please try to make the thought intention be compatible with your own ‘primary intelligence’.
    What do I mean?
    Humans ARE complex creatures AND some of the things which contribute to this complexity is our ‘multiple intelligences'(Teachers fully understand these concepts) we humans draw from.
    Please let me enlarge:
    Any teacher worth-his/her-salt will tell you that some 85% of their students are Audio/visual & some 16% are Kinesthetics.
    Audio kids have lots of friends, cant stop talking, etc
    Visual kids will like reading alot, watching TV, etc
    Kinesthetic kids like to play alot, sport, fidgeting, etc

    IF you can workout WHICH of these 3 primary intelligences (just one) is yours (there are some 6 others but they tend not to be PRIMARY) then present the thought intention through this primary intelligence.
    eg: If you’re visual, Visualise in detail your intent.
    If you’re Audio, make a personal recording of you verbalising your intent.
    If you’re Kinethetic you may have to physically, repeatedly act-outOR FEEL your intent.

    I hope this helps .

    Hi Glen Rees, thanks for the insights once again. Yes, when we can customize the material to fit our audience, its much easier for them to integrate the information.

    Hey Dino, yeah its always good to get a pen and paper and do some written exercise to get the energy flowing. Good luck!

    Good. I have heard the audio version of Abraham’s deliberate creation series. It’s nice to see it in print as well. Which reminds me, I have not listened to the file in a long while.

    Thanks for this! I’ve been reading over at the Brainwave Entrainment Forums recently, and hearing this post was the exact substantiation for much of the info I found out. 🙂

    Brainwave entrainment does not work properly with each person so if you want to know if this works with you, try for free several types of waves in:

  36. Ryan Says:

    Hi Beverly,

    Yes, I know what you mean. No matter how many affirmations, or mental exercises we might do, it feels as if we are weighted down by our problems and our mind compulsively goes in a negative direction and we can’t manifest anything we want.

    In my own experience, I’ve discovered that one of the missing elements in my ability to manifest was the health and condition of my own body. You need a healthy body to manifest, otherwise negative thoughts overrun the body and create havoc in your life. The HIGHEST leverage point in improving the health of the body is NOT exercise (necessarily, though it may help), it’s emotional healing.

    Growing up we were imprinted with negative emotional experiences, and these experiences are trapped in our body/nervous system, and often we block them out of our awareness due to them being very uncomfortable to think about or feel. This build in power and become the generators of all that we manifest in our life. It’s not necessary to consciously attract what we want, so much as it is to clear away all that is blocking us (which is usually emotionally charged negative beliefs). Clear the emotion > Clear The belief > Manifest automatically.

    Check out EFT and TAT (on the links in the top right sidebar), these are exercises to clear away emotional junk. Use those techniques on your own personal desires/aspirations/trauamas/baggage and you will find it easier to manifest.

    Hi Ryan,
    i just want to know that if i visualise my goals most of the time a day would it be considered a case of doubt in my manifestation process.

  38. Gary Says:

    Hey Ryan. I just wanted to ask you what do you think about manifestation using heart energy. I am getting to understand that the real manifestation is done from the heart
