“The Art of Manifesting”


Nia Ellis, Opinions Writer

I think when most of us hear the word “manifesting” we are thinking what kind of superpower is that? Is it magic? At least that is

how my brain registered this new term a little over two years ago. The internets meaning of manifesting is quite complex, although it reads

“Manifestation refers to various pseudoscientific self-help strategies intended to bring about a personal goal, primarily by focusing one’s thoughts upon the desired outcome.”

I know what you are probably thinking, what does this even mean? So to put it in an easier yet still accurate perception, manifesting ultimately is a skill as well as an art each one of us does EVERY single day. The thoughts in your mind and what you speak out into the world with your specific thoughts eventually result in your destiny and world!! 

For example, if you were to wake up this morning and say I feel happy,

 I am going to do amazing things, something good is going to happen to me.


You in one way or another would be controlling what you would like in your own life and what you say will translate to the universe where you will be given just what you put out into our beautiful world.

 Manifestation believes that the universe will always give you what you have voiced as yours, whatever that may be! However, if you were to be negative about yourself and say something not very nice like I am having a terrible day, things could not get worse, or just an overall terrible thing about yourself and or life. 

You would be risking that becoming your reality considering without realizing it you have already told the universe your life is precisely awful and defeatist. 


The words you lay out and your thoughts have weight and can either translate negatively or positively, which is your choice! You’re the creator of your existence and how fantastic is that? To know that you can be awarded anything your heart desires just by claiming it, which is an art all of us humans do subconsciously and or consciously.. and I think that’s beautiful.


A great example of how manifestation is intertwined within cultures through the Hinduism religion is In the early 21st century, Hinduism had nearly one billion adherents worldwide and was the religion of about 80 percent of India’s population. Despite global presence, however, it is best understood through its many distinctive regional manifestations.”


Being said, they would use the law of manifestation through their words as a form of their own prayer by wishing goodness upon their lives.

“May good thoughts come to us from all sides.”-Hindu prayer.


With this I can only hope you then take heed to what I am sharing and truly realize the art of manifesting. 

Today is the day where YOU can make your dreams come true just by saying a simple prompt!

Go make it happen.
