Getting anything you want – is this even a concept that’s possible? We’re taught from a really young age to ‘go after your dreams’ and ‘believe in the impossible’ but that’s coupled with ‘you need to work hard to get anywhere in life’ and ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’ (well actually it does if you’re gonna use the paper argument, but that’s for another time).
I believe that we can bring our thoughts into reality (I’ve experienced it first hand). The things we want are totally achievable and I’m going to show you how easy it is.
But what the heck is manifestation?
Manifestation is a key piece of the law of attraction puzzle ~ it’s the simple art of turning your dreams into reality.
It’s wishing for a specific amount of money, a physical thing, a desired outcome or a new person to enter your life. But then going the extra mile (and following the signs) to make sure it HAPPENS.
I’m a huge believer that anyone can manifest anything they want and over the years I’ve tried many methods. You may recognise some of these famous ones:

The Secret. If you haven’t heard of this then definitely go Google it. I was introduced to the video in 2016 when I worked in network marketing. It talks about how thoughts have the power to become reality, and by merely changing the energetic vibration you put out into the universe then your desires will eventually materialise. It’s hugely empowering (and makes you think), but in my opinion focuses solely on visualisation, and what I’ve learned over the years is that there’s more to manifesting than just daydreaming.
Vision boards. These have become massively popular over the last few years (with everyone running to Pinterest to create their own). It’s a method that consists of putting your dreams and wishes into physical form, so that you’re reminded every day of your end goal (and subconsciously will take the required steps to make them happen). The idea is that you’ll create a visual image of all the things you want to feel, experience and have.
Scheduling. Tony Robbins quotes “If you talk about it, it’s a dream. If you envision it, it’s possible. But if you schedule it, it’s real”. By putting something in your diary and committing, it’s more likely that you’ll take appropriate steps to make it happen.
While I love all of these, I found a much easier (and way more effective) manifestation technique.
But first let’s break it down for the sceptics
Spiritual leaders and scientists are now at last in agreement that manifestation works. Thoughts have power…
And this is now backed up with scientific fact. All you’ve gotta do is delve into the world of Quantum Physics ~ which states that everything in the world is made up of energy (including our thoughts). This energy moves at a specific frequency, which attracts other energy in that same frequency. Hence the term ‘like attracts like’.
Think about it. How many times have you woken up in a bad mood, and then the entire morning seems to have been one disaster after another? Or, you’ve received some good news and then the rest of the day is filled with happy vibes and positive thoughts. It’s no coincidence, because you’ve put out the energetic frequency of what you’re attracting back to you.
The exact manifestation technique
I’ve already discussed a few techniques above, but they’re only touching the surface. There is one technique I’ve found to be the MOST effective and FASTEST way to get the things you want.
Introducing… Word Alchemy
If you really want to attract everything you want, you must first take the plunge and dive deep into WHY you want them. The power is in the feelings.
Here’s how you do it:
Step one ~ write down what it is you’re trying to manifest (be as specific as you can)
Step two ~ next, answer the question ‘why do I want this?’
Step three ~ keep repeating this question 5-7 times
You will eventually get straight to the core of what you want to feel. Pretty powerful huh?
Now for the magic
Grab a pen and paper, and write your feeling in the middle. Now set a timer for ten minutes (you’ll probably want to make sure you’re comfy and will be undisturbed).
From that one word, you’re going to fill the page with all the things that spring to mind when you look at it (thoughts, other feelings, things, people, places) ~ don’t overthink it, just keep going without pausing. Write down anything (however random it may seem).
When the ten minutes is up, you’ll probably find that the original thing you wanted to manifest has been forgotten about and you’re feeling pretty damn awesome.
Whether you realise it or not, you’ve just projected the energetic vibrations of your core feeling out into the world ~ all your brain is now focusing on is finding everything it can to match this frequency.
Ta-da. Word alchemy in all its glory.
This is such a powerful technique and I’m still blown away by all the things that somehow ‘find me’.
My recommendation: if you’re serious about manifesting your wildest dreams, then do this practice for 30-days straight. Using the same word throughout, give yourself ten minutes every night before you go to bed (or in the morning if it’s easier).
My personal experiences
If you’re anything like me, then you’ll be both in awe and mega inspired by hearing the results other people have had. So I’m going to share some of my manifesting successes (in just the past TWO months)
A holiday. Yes that’s right, I manifested the perfect family holiday (even though it was during an all-booked out summer bank holiday). Once I’d decided that we WERE going away, the fact that nowhere was available wasn’t going to stop me. I surrendered and everything fell into place.
A new Tarot deck. This wasn’t any tarot deck though, it was the Crystal Unicorn Tarot Deck. Unavailable in the U.K, I decided that wasn’t going to stop me ~ I managed to WIN a copy and have it shipped over from America (for free).
Lifetime Membership. I was desperate to enrol on Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy, but didn’t quite have the funds. I thought I’d be clever and manifest a way in, but what came was way better than I could have imagined. During an online challenge, I managed to WIN a lifetime membership into Carrie Green’s Membership Club (and yes, waiting inside was a masterclass on building a course ~ plus a whole load more).
Business opportunities. When I decided I was ready to up my game and gain more visibility, I sent a memo out to the Universe to bring some exciting new opportunities. What followed was being a guest speaker at an online summit AND assisting my mentor deliver their first live training event (plus being gifted a copy of their new book, which was already on my wishlist).
Take a note
Manifestation is a hot topic among loads of people. We all have our own views on whether it actually works or not, but you can’t deny the science behind it.
Your thoughts are powerful, and if you’re serious about living your dream life then you need to pay attention to how you think and feel.
Of course, it needs to be stressed that some desires are way bigger than others. There may be things that materialise quickly, and there may be things that take a little longer ~ the key is to not obsess over the outcome. The more you stress and worry about something not happening, that’s exactly what’s going to occur.
So focus on the feelings. Stay present in the moment and be okay with what comes along!
