Art of manifestation

Manifest what you want!

By now, you have probably already heard something about manifesting, if not even tried to manifest yourself. But, most people still lack the trust to go a little bit deeper and believe that they can receive that which they desire. Virtually to manifest means to involve in the process of creating your reality based on your thoughts. Manifestation is based on the law of attraction or the law of mirroring in which our Universe operates. In other words, your thought is a vibration. You may also be familiar with the concept of Law of Attraction, which is a similar concept. 

This vibration dictates how your energy manifests in the physical world. The Universe will reflect what you are, what you think, and what you vibrate. You are the creator. It is often tough to believe this since we were raised in a victimized society. And, by accepting this thesis, you take a tremendous amount of responsibility. If you are the creator, you are responsible for most of the things in your life. This can be scary, but I invite you to dig a bit deeper and find out how you can accept the call to become what you want to become.

A (very) personal story of manifestation

I have about a dozen personal stories of manifestations of what I would call "life-changing" events. Let me share with you 3 of those. 

I manifested success, wealth and love. 

As some of you may know, I am French-Canadian. I come from a small village, working-class family background. Not what we could call a "life jumpstart." When I was 16 I met a man, also French-Canadian, who had been living in Vietnam for about 10-15 years. He was fluent in Vietnamese and he left a strong impression on me. Upon meeting him I told myself: that's what I want to be. At the time I did not really have any idea what this wish implied, but as I am connecting the dots now (I am in my forties,) I can say that the power of manifestation brought me where I am. In 2000, I had the chance to live in Bangkok, Thailand, for a few months. To this day, I still remember the sultry wave of hot air that hit me when the doors of the airport opened. I loved my time there as Thai culture is really beautiful, and when I came back to Canada I decided to start learning Japanese.

I set myself on going to Japan as a goal, constantly telling myself that I would achieve this, manifesting this goal in the material world, constantly reminding myself. In 2004 I got a scholarship to study at one of the best universities in Japan, the university is so popular that its founder is on the biggest bank note in Japan, the 10,000yen bank note. The university is called Keio University. 2 years after this I manifested something else: I got into a program of the Japanese government that allowed to live and work in Japan. I can now read, speak and write Japanese to N1 level, the highest level of proficiency. On top of that, as we speak, I can also read, speak and write Mandarin Chinese to level HSK 5-6, high level of proficiency.

Another thing I manifested: I wanted to move to China and work in digital advertising and build a portfolio with the world's biggest brands. I not only worked with Nike, Disney, Tiffany, Fendi, Hipp, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Costa, AIDA... but I made the first digital campaign for WeChat, the biggest social media in China. Since then, my work has been seen by millions of people! We recently bought an apartment in the hottest market in the world, Shanghai. I'm now married with a kid. The rest is history. 

Am I lucky? Maybe a little. Am I a genius? No, absolutely not. Did I work hard? YES! I should have worked a little smarter. 

What is Manifesting?

Manifesting is the act of using the power of positive thoughts, visualization methods and repeated affirmations to create your own reality in the material world. Manifesting is done to reach your goals and influence such things as our mood, vibration, relationships, mindset, health, and wealth. 

Why manifesting?

How many things in your life would you like to transform right now? There are a few of them, I am sure. Well, write them down. Now, ask yourself: "What is keeping me from transforming them?". You will probably come up with many things from the outside world that you cannot change. But, if you give yourself a chance to use your power, you may find out that there are ways to change the course of things. Unfortunately, our ancestors have mostly lived lives in which they were the victims of the "natural" event of things. With the development of technology, we, as a human race, have found out that we can get out of this loop.

The only thing standing on your path to creating your reality is YOU. To manifest means to start using your potential and to tune yourself with the Universe. So, why manifest? Because this way, you are deeply involved with what this life offers to you. By manifesting your reality, you present yourself to the hidden potentials in the corners of your soul.

Why manifesting, a short list: 

  • leverage the power of the subconscious
  • reprogram your subconscious and your beliefs system
  • improve your love life
  • to go beyond limiting beliefs
  • switch mindset, attitude and vibration
  • lower self-doubt and increase confidence
  • manifest money, wealth and success

Who can manifest?

Manifesting what you want in life is possible, as long as you want it and take action. 

Anybody who believes that they can, can manifest. I would even say that the idea of wanting to manifest is a little seed, you can only have this idea if deep within yourself, you have the potential to manifest.

You don't need to be a magician to create magic in your life. We all have the tools that help us shape our reality. The catch is that while growing up, we learn how to ignore these tools. Want to know who are the best manifesters? Children. Why? Because they still believe that dreams really can come true. As we grow up, we start losing faith in our potential. We become so serious that we limit the opportunities of our minds. With that said, we need to reprogram ourselves. We should find a new, more open way to operate and flow in this Universe. By believing in our potential, we can become the masters of our own lives and develop our ability to manifest.

What is the meaning of manifested

The meaning of manifested is simple: "manifested" means that what you wanted to manifest has happened in the material world. For example, I manifested wealth by making money online and I manifest success by getting a scholarship, the chance to work in digital advertising. I also manifested love by finding my wife and having a baby with her. At the time of writing this, we just bought an apartment in one of the hottest real estate markets in the world. 

What is the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is the concept that the Universe has an inherent energy that people can leverage to attract what they want in the material world through positive thinking, mental power and affirmations. 

How to manifest what you want quickly

There is no shortcut! You need to be patient. The biggest mistake people do is that they quit half-through. Persistence and grit are the two most important elements if you want to manifest!

It took me 8 years to manifest my scholarship! One the reasons I got it was because I persisted, while other students, who had better grades than me, and some who were a lot more clever than I am, did not push enough to get to the finish line! 

Every day is a series of challenges. Every day, every moment, every second is a dot on the roadmap to success.  

However, I believe there is one way to manifest a little bit more quickly: meet new people who have higher vibration than the people you are currently hanging out with. This is in my opinion, the only way to fasten the process of manifestation. 

If you want more money, well, hang out with people who talk about money, do business and have an entrepreneurship mindset. 

You are the sum of the 5 people you hang out with!

How to start manifesting your dreams

Five affirmation to help you:
"I am."

When contemplating on abundance, the most important thing is to realize that you deserve to have what you want. To create what you want in your life, you need to believe that you deserve it first. One of the reasons we often bathe in the feeling of lacking is that we think we deserve it. I challenge you to change this reality. Why wouldn't you deserve to have all that you need to create and share the life you want? You can start by looking yourself in the mirror and saying this affirmation out loud. Here are some examples of affirmations you could use:

  1. "I am loved."
  2. "I have money. I am rich."
  3. "I am living my dream."
  4. "I am healthy."
  5. "I deserve to have more time for myself."

NOTE: all affirmations need to be in the present tense. You cannot use any negative statements as the subconscious mind does not process them (e.g., "I am healthy and smoke-free," is better than "I do not smoke".)

I feel better already after writing these thoughts down because I know that I deserve somewhere deep inside, and this is just a reminder.

"You deserve" - Give so you could receive

If you are having trouble believing that you deserve, try, and think about your generous heart. I am sure that you believe that other people deserve to live their dreams in the depth of your heart. And if you could, you would help them do so. If you had a bunch of money, what would you do? You would share it. You would help others create their reality. So, as a person that would use their abundance, you deserve to have it. If you look at it from a giver's perspective, you will see that you can receive as much as you give, too. One who gives receives. This mindset can help you accept that which the Universe is offering you and help you remove the obstacle of not believing that your existence is enough to deserve all that you wish for.


To create your reality, you need to be able to imagine it first. When we have an image in our minds, we can attract it into our lives. But how to draw something that you cannot imagine? So, we need to get back to our creative mind and start exploring our power again. As children, it was so natural to explore the unseen and the potential reality. Dreams were as important as reality. Imagination was as important as logic. And indeed, logic is practical; it will take you from A to B in the shortest way possible. It is concrete and straightforward. Yet, imagination will take you anywhere you allow yourself to go. Be brave enough to use this tool that your mind offers. 


Do not take this too seriously, neither. Life is a game. There is a beautiful Sanskrit term - Lila. It refers to life as a divine play. No matter what you believe or don't believe in, it is often helpful to remind yourself that this life is a game. It would help if you were rather playful in it. If not, you could miss out on the best parts. We often force and cling to things out of fear. But, when you shift your perspective in the vibration of playfulness, you will discover many gifts that this life offers.
When it comes to manifestation, it is essential not to be too rigid and strict with yourself and the Universe in this dance you are creating. Try manifesting things out of joy and be open to gifts even if they seem not to be "real" enough. Playfulness is a high vibration that will be your most significant assistant in this process.

Being specific

This Universe loves when you tell it all the details. Honestly, the only barrier between you and your biggest dreams is actually you not being able to believe that they are possible. And that's okay, let's take it bit by bit. But, when you do start, try to get as specific as you can. For example, let's say that you want to manifest a new partner in your life. Be clear about what (s)he should look like, what age (s)he should be, where does (s)he come from, what does (s)he do...and so on. Dare to be picky and develop your desire on a deep level. Because if you don't say what you want, you will probably get something else. So, try to bring awareness to all the qualities of your desires, and then you will soon see a reflection of it in the material form.

How to manifest what you want?

1. Prove yourself that you can create your reality

To manifest, you need to believe that you can do it. Before you can really become the creator of your reality, you need to trust that you are. One thing that helps in reminding ourselves of the power that we have is synchronicities. C.G.Jung established this term as the 'simultaneous occurrence of two meaningful but not causally connected events.' By observing these magical events, we can start to see through the interconnectedness of our thoughts and their manifestations in the physical realm. We often end up surprised and excited about these little daily miracles. But we forget about them very soon. One way to start trusting your magic is to lead a synchronicity journal. It will serve you as your reminder of concrete events that prove magic. As a result, these ideas will push you when doubt appears.

2. Start Small

Don't start with big things that really matter to you! Why not? Because they really matter to you, which means you are terrified of them not happening in your life. This situation splits our energy. Since we are trying to focus on getting that, but at the same time, our fear tends to take us to that place of horror where we are not getting it. In the end, we spend more time in fear than in trust. You need to build your capacity slowly because your imagination is probably not used to creating this much. So, be gentle with yourself. For example, manifest a chocolate with whole nuts in it for exercise. 

3. Visualization

Visualization is a critical part of manifestation. By having a clear vision of what you want, you start to create it. So, invest your time in creating a visualization thoroughly and in detail. When you are clear about what you want and how you want it to be, please spend some time with it. Write, draw, meditate, or sing with your visualization. The best habit that I developed is to go to bed with my visualization and wake up to it. For 5 minutes, I repeat the affirmation of my desire while visualizing it. For example, I repeat, "by the 8th of January 2021, I will be my own boss and earn 2000$ a month" while visualizing myself in that "future" version of my life. This helps me remember where I am going and what I want to achieve. Meanwhile, it reminds the Universe what I want to see as my reflection.

I have a Pinterest account with boars that I look at to help me visualize!

4. Action - Show the Universe the you care

This step is also significant. By taking small action, you show the Universe that you care and are interested in a particular dream. How will you know what to do? While sitting with your visualization, you will get clear ideas and inspiration on what to do next. Your action should be light since its role is only to help this energy of the manifestation be expressed. Please do not force it or overdo it. Imagine like you are just showing somebody that you care, and if that's the right person for you, they will come, for sure. Same with manifesting, show your dream that you want it to be fulfilled, and let the magic unfold.

5. Affirmations - Positive affirmations only, no negative affirmations

Every time you have a negative thought, replace it by repeating 5 positive affirmation when you self-talk. Feel free to voice them out if you want! Whenever you can, repeat your affirmations in your head, constantly, as many times as you can. Affirmations are powerful and they can set you in the right mood when you are misaligned due to external events. Up your vibration when you are feeling down with affirmations!

Remember, the Universe is in a constant state of potential, which creates uncertainty. In order to manifest, trust, and a healthy dose of silliness is needed.

The Law of Attraction: writing down what you want

Write down what you want is probably the easiest and the fastest way to get what you want with the Law of Attraction and Manifestation. 

I personally write my life objectives every day, yes every day, on a sheet of paper. It also helps reprogram the subconscious to bring you closer to what you want. 

Some people keep a journal, I think it is a good tactic! I prefer Index cards; I can move them around, use them like flashcards, put them in my pockets...
