While I thank a movie like the Secret for bringing manifestation to the mainstream, I am also aware that it has given manifestation and the Law of Attraction a bad name.
The Hollywoodesque visuals and sound-effects made for great entertainment but played up the ease of the process, which can actually be quite challenging.
The movie also gave the impression that manifestation was all about greedy, ego-based goals like owning all the diamonds, cars, and riches in the world.
Nothing wrong with a little bling of course but I personally consider that manifestation should be more about freedom and radical authenticity than stacking up stuff.Manifestation is more about freedom and authencity than acquiring material goods. Click To Tweet
Manifestation: business as usual.
Actually, in real life manifestation is not so exciting.
Don’t expect magical wands, sound effects, genies coming out of lamps or a diamond tiara just appearing on top of your head, you’d be sorely disappointed!
When you working with manifestation, things actually look very normal (sometimes even too normal so you can easily doubt that anything is really happening…).
You see, manifestation has a knack for rearranging events in your life and bringing you what you desire through the most mundame avenues so it appears as if those changes would have happened anyway.
It’s only when you take the time to really reflect on all the incredible lucky breaks, chance encounters and opportunities that have lined up to get you to success that you realize that what you have experienced defies all the laws of probability.
It’s challenging work
Manifestation is work.
Manifestation creates effortless breakthroughs, and doesn’t require the hard work that we’re normally accustomed to when pursuing our dreams.
You can certainly manifest money out of the blue, manifest an apartment or a job without scanning classified.
However, manifestation still requires some work.
Mental work mostly.
With manifestation the game is not to run around and reschuffle things outside of yourself to get from A to Z.
No, with manifestation the game is to reschuffle things inside of yourself to attain a change of consciousness that will picture itself in the form of a change of circumstances.
I know it sounds a bit woo-woo, however it makes perfect sense when you realize that the world around us reflects and matches us with similar frequencies as the ones we emit.
Broadcast despair, depression, lack, failure: you will get more of that.
Broadcast joy, bliss, success, abundance. You will get more of that too!
When you stem from a society that trains us to ‘see it before you believe it’ and ‘my pain is real’ that’s when working with manifestation can become tricky.
A different worldview.
Manifestation challenges our entire belief system. This makes most of us uncomfortable.
How many people have I offended by suggesting they could transcend their pain or their hardship?
Struggle is almost a badge of honor in certain circles. And many are addicted to the labels, to the scars, and to the story.
– ‘How could it be so easy? Simply changing focus and all our life would change?!!’
Maybe but that’s still how life works…
Initially, I thought that just training people to use this method would allow them to create miracles.
However now I am shifting towards offering more and more support, because I have come to realize that while manifestation creates real miracles, it also tends to kick our lovely behinds in the process.
Honestly, even after more than 20 years and all the incredible manifestations I have experienced, I too fall back into my slumber from time to time and doubt the whole idea!
Therefore I can’t blame anyone who hasn’t experienced successful manifestations to feel discombobulated by the process.

Manifesting your dreams is not for the faint of heart.
– an unyielding desire to be YOU,
– the desire to write your own original story,
– the ability to look beyond appearances,
– the discipline to reach for happiness no matter the circumstances,
– the capacity to hold on to your vision as if your life depended on it.
Now it’s quite easy when you’re manifesting something you don’t really need, something you’re not depending on: a new toy, new clothes, a parking spot…
There are no opposing thoughs and no fear: it’s relatively easy to stay focused and positive.
Some challenges to anticipate.
Things get tricky when you really NEED a solution.
That’s when you experience a lot of fears and anxieties that you must counteract if you want to be successful with your manifestation.
– How do you imagine yourself savoring a peaceful life in your dream home when your present living situation is chaotic at best?
– How do you imagine and believe in the impossible like being healed of a dreadful disease?
– Isn’t that lying or being delusional?
– How can you be honest about your difficult situation and be positive at the same time?
– How do you keep going when you hear bad news?
These are the questions you have to answer and the thoughts you have to conquer to succeed in receiving a big manifestation.
As with everything being prepared opens the road for success.
When you have the right strategies you’ll be able to enjoy the roller coaster ride of manifestation with confidence and trust in the happy ending you have prepared for yourself even if things presently look desperate.
What you will need.
In order to successfully manifest your dreams, you will need to:
– Have a clear vision that motivates and inspires you each day.
– Understand why you follow your strategy to so you can lean on and trust in the manifestation process.
– Identify and anticipate your sabotaging patterns.
– Protect yourself from negative influences.
– Prepare for success.
– Have daily success habits.
– Learn to move through the fear.
– And last but not least, lose the excuses that can make you slack and side-track you.
Alright, this was quite a program!!
But don’t despair, if you’re still up for using manifestation to transform your life, you don’t have to do it all on your own.
I have put my entire manifestation method in these online workshops that will help you upgrade your life while mitigating the challenges I described in this post.
And if you are looking for even more personalized support, I am also here for you.
