Last week, I wrote about using the Law of Attraction to manifest your dreams.
This week, let’s look at the first part of the process.

A beginner’s guide to manifesting your dreams
It’s that simple. Just ask.
Now, let’s look at this part in detail.
There are two views out there.
One suggests that you should get as specific as you want. Say, if you want a large beach house, you should get very specific on the facade, the location, the number of rooms. It’s often said that asking for a dream can be likened to ordering your favorite dish at a restaurant. You look at the menu and pick a particular dish, and not something vague.
So get as specific and detailed as you can.
Keeping it vague
The second school of thought talks about keeping your options open. So, in the example above, if you want a beach house, just ask for the best house and leave the details to The Universe. For me, personally, the second option works better. More often than not, the more specific my wishes are – be it a job at a particular company, move to a particular city etc – the less easy it is for me to manifest them. It so happens, that The Universe somehow always comes up with something better. So while it may help to focus on something particular you want – I personally don’t get too attached to the outcome. The bets way to go about it is to add “or something even better” at the end of your wish. In the example above, you could frame your wish like this –
“Please get me a house on XYZ beach, looking like this specific picture, or something even better.”
And this brings me to my next point. Vision boards.
Vision board? What’s that?
Vision boards are nothing but a board where you pin the pictures of everything you want to manifest in your life. Think of it as you Pinterest board. The belief goes that if you see the pictures often enough, they get imprinted on your subconscious mind and you end up attracting them into your life.
Although I have never used them too extensively (I have a collage of pics on my mobile phone I sometimes look at and one on my laptop – like the one above), the results reported by other people are nothing short of miraculous. I encourage all of you to try these. As I keep saying – you have nothing to lose.
Whichever way you choose to do it, the end result is the same. The Universe will get you exactly what you focus on.
For this week, let’s pick a particular goal you’ve been working towards. All you need to do is ask The Universe for it and focus on it positively.
We’ll look at the “focussing” part next week. In the meanwhile, feel free to ask me any questions you might have!
Until then, happy manifesting!
