How to manifest: Be specific

Have you ever felt like you have a hard time identifying or getting really specific with what you want?

It’s almost as if someone asked you what you REALLY, REALLY wanted. Now this is no- holds-barred, whether it be how much money you want to make, the kind of home you want to live in, the kinds of relationships you want to have. Would you would feel like the cat got your tongue?

You search your mind for a bit, but the moment a big idea pops in, you sort of push it back down in fear that it sounds silly.

In my experience, many of us struggle to get specific with our desires. This is because we are so afraid that if we really admit what we truly want and THEN it doesn’t happen, we will be gravely disappointed.

And if we have been disappointed in the past, it’s almost as if we forget how to even dream big or how to be specific with our desires. 

Today, I have a quick video for you where I share a story about something I wanted badly, but almost screwed it up. You will see what I did instead and learn how to manifest. 

Want to learn more about manifesting your desires? CLICK HERE to learn more about my course!!

Goal setting, desires and making things happen are certainly on my brain with the start of fall and it all starts with clarifying and get explicit with what you want.

Watch the video, here to find out how I got really lucky, or rather, how I Magically Manifested something I really wanted because I was super specific.

If you feel inspired, I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments. Let me know about a time when you manifested the wrong thing because you weren’t specific OR when you manifested the RIGHT thing because you were so on point. I think there will be some great stories over there to get you inspired.

Magically yours,
Erin

    I remember when the story happened and I was amazed on how it showed up.

    It was such a powerful reminder of specificity. I know I have been able to implemented in my daily life on how things show up with ease. Heck that’s how I called in a bridge job specific to my needs and it showed up in my email – with I am not sure if you are looking but here is a great opportunity, let me know if you are interested. Wouldn’t it be nice that I had the same thought a few hours prior what I wanted.

    Thanks! This is just what I needed to hear this morning. I have a big decision to make today and I need to be specific about how I want it to turn out.

  3. Just wrote out a very specific goal while listening to your story- thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks for this video, Erin! Loved the story. I definitely think I struggle with being specific, mainly in my career. I have been saying “I really want to be equity, but I’ll take my EMC card right now.” No! I need to say exactly what I want!!

    Thanks for this, Erin! A crucial thing I’ve noticed for my own manifesting is placing the desire in your mind/body in the right way – lightly, playfully, gently, compassionately. Like you say, “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” or I think of it as – formulating the wish/goal and then letting it go; proceeding with ease. In meditation speak, putting it in a pink bubble and letting it float away. Let there be faith that it – or the right/better thing – will come to pass, and that you will be just fine no matter what. It puts confidence in both the Universe’s ability to deliver and your ability to adapt to any win or loss, and move forward.

    It worked today! I got a notice from my health insurance company that my premium was going to more than double. I had an appointment today with an insurance agent to see if I could change to CoveredCA. I was thinking it would be nice if I could find a temporary policy until the December start…. I watched your video, Erin, and changed it to ‘I am allowed now to get CoveredCA, and at a low cost.’ That is exactly what happened. I will be saving $133 a month right away, and $349 a month if I had kept my higher policy. I also saved on auto and home, and was able to bump up my home coverage and add earthquake insurance, and I am still saving money! I also gave my agents my card, and talked about my own business. Fantastic.

    I’ve done this before, with my previous two boyfriends. On one of the only Oprah’s I have ever seen, there was a woman who mentioned having written a list of 100 things about her future husband. Years after being married, she found the list and found him to have almost all of the things on the list, and the few that weren’t on it were things that he had mentioned wanting to learn (sailing was an example of that, I think). So I decided to try right away, and wrote a list. I didn’t realize my next boyfriend was that list until a while after we’d been dating, but it was spot on. I made another list after we broke up when I was ready to date again, I added all my dreams and fantasies, and I learned something very important. In both situations I was very specific, but I was specific about a lot of things that weren’t that important, and I forgot a lot of things that were important. The guy I dated was out of a dream-book in all the ways I had desired, but he was also missing a lot for me—but I hadn’t asked for those things! It’s been about a year and I’m sufficiently humbled by the experience, and I haven’t made a list yet for any future boyfriends… or anything rather. Making our desires, goals and dreams clear and specific is so important, I believe it and I’ll do it before I sit down to write an email, even sometimes after I’ve started because I do believe it can work retroactively (time? what’s that?!). Recently I’ve been a little scared of it though, intimidated by the power-ha! So in the meantime I do little mini, day-to-day assertions and affirmations. It’s so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. And I really like your language, “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” I tend to make more assertive declarations, and I think (well, I’ve experienced!) that I might not always know what’s good for me….! ha!!! Thanks, Erin. 🙂

    What’s so cool about this story also is how QUICKLY you were able to make the change and see the result… sometimes the concept of manifestation seems so daunting and big to me… I forget that sometimes all it takes is a moment… 🙂
