We all have hopes, dreams, wants and desires. At a young age, I was taught that what's meant to be yours will be yours. But what if you can make something yours?

Lately, I've been interested in the power of manifestation. Manifestation is essentially the act of feeling something is yours and making it real. When you manifest something, you're making it known to the universe that this thing — whether it's a dream job or a new car — will be yours.

In order for manifestation to work, you have to fully believe in it. Throw your negative mentality out the window and start thinking positively. Negativity will only hold you back from everything. Even if you just start thinking with a positive attitude, you'll see a big change in your quality of life. 

However, manifestation takes a lot more than just positive thinking. You have to have faith in the process and know that what you're manifesting will be yours.

One of the most important parts of the process is to be in the mindset that you already have what you're trying to manifest. 

If you're wanting to test things out a little, I recommend starting small. For example, manifest something like a free meal and watch in amazement as it actually happens sometime that week. 

Manifestation really works! Here are some different ways you can manifest what you want. I guarantee whatever you want will be yours:

1. You can manifest using objects.

You can manifest using objects by putting all of your energy into a specific object. Hold it in your hands and fill that object with positivity and your dreams.

One easy thing you can use to manifest your dreams is water. Fill up a glass bottle with clean water, prefferably something like spring water, and wrap your hands around the bottle. Think about all the things you want to manifest and put them into the water. Many even claim that water molecules can change with high vibrational positive energy. Once you put your manifesting thoughts and positive energy into your water, take a sip. Keep it nearby, like on your nightstand, and drink from your positive water any time you feel like you want to manifest something towards you.

Another popular way to manifest with objects is using crystals. Crystals are known to have different healing powers and different energies. Choose a crystal that has a significant meaning to you, or it can even just be one you think is pretty, and hold it in your hands. Put your energy and dreams into it and keep it around you. Hold the crystal whenever you need to feel that energy or whenever you want to start manifesting something.

2. Manifest using meditation.

Meditation in general is good for the soul. It helps calm the body and mind and bring peace into your daily life. Meditation teaches us to focus on one thing and to let go of everything else around us.

You can set any intention you want when meditating, but in this case, your intention will be to manifest your dreams. During meditation, close your eyes and do some visualization exersises. Visualize how your life will be when everything you want has come to you. Picture yourself getting in your dream car and turning it on. Imagine what your hands feel like on the wheel as you start driving away.

As your meditating, focus on this and you can even go through the motions. Children have big imaginations and it's time to bring yours out too because whatever you imagine and believe in will be yours.

3. Manifest using your words.

Manifesting with words can be very easy, but it takes some getting used to. When a lot of us want something to happen, we use words like "I wish" or "I want", or even "I hope". When it comes to manifestation, those words don't exist and they should never be in your vocabulary.

Manifesting is all about believing that you already have something and letting it come to you, so speak in the present and using active words.

For example, instead of saying "I want that raise", say "I'm going to get that raise." Change your mindset into a positive one. Another example is instead of saying "If I'm chosen for that new job", say "When I'm chosen for that new job...". You'll be surprised at what a big difference those small words can make.

4. Make a list of what you want to manifest in your life.

It's good to talk about things and manifest them that way, but what makes your thoughts and desires even more real is writing them down.

Pick up a pen and write out your dreams in any way, such as in list form, as a letter or even as a story. Write out how your dream life will be, but the key is to write it as if it's how your life is currently.

For example, you can make a list that says "I'm grateful now that I have..." and list all the things that you want to manifest towards you. The more detail you write in the better! Then, store your desires in a secret spot and you can reread them anytime you want. Reading what you wrote down out loud helps put it out into the universe too!
