5 Mistakes You’re Guilty of When Doing Your Manifestation Work

1. Relying Too Much On Thoughts

When people first come to know about the law of attraction, they tend to focus too much on the thoughts part of it. They hear sentences like, “Thoughts become things,” and they think that that’s enough to manifest what they want. As they eventually realize though, that’s not the case. Your thoughts are only one aspect of your manifestation process. You can say that it’s the outer membrane of a bubble that you exude outwards.

2. You Don’t Have Clarity On Your Dreams

Imagine this. You are at a restaurant and you want something to eat. But you are not sure what. Then, the waiter comes to take your order. But since you don’t know what you want, the waiter can’t even begin to write down your order, let alone bring it to you. The same happens with a lot of people. They have no clarity on what they want in life.

3. You Want Something Too Big Too Soon

This is an extremely common mistake that most beginners are guilty of committing. When they hear about the law of attraction, they feel like they have the key to the universe, and they can use it to manifest their biggest dream instantly. While this is not exactly wrong, there is one huge piece missing. It’s that, merely asking for a dream or a desire doesn’t work. You have to put real and intense energy behind it.

4. You Don’t Take Action

Again, merely asking the universe for something is not enough. This is one rule that everybody needs to understand. Many people think that just by sitting and imagining things, they can get the universe to give them what they want. I am sorry to say but that is just wishful thinking. You have to take action and put in the effort for the manifestation to happen.

5. You Fear Change

In general, one of humanity’s biggest flaws is that we fear change. Due to our evolutionary process, we seek familiarity and comfort. While that can have its own advantages, it can serve as a roadblock to your manifestation process. You see, in order to fulfill your wishes, the universe has to make some changes in your life. Without these changes, your wish wouldn’t come true.

Final Words

Among the above mistakes, I am most guilty of the first one — Relying Too Much On Thoughts. Thoughts are important only because they affect how we feel. But even if we focus on generating 1 million dollar in the coming month, our desire would unlikely manifest if our feeling doesn’t support the thought.
