What Is Your Job And What Isn’t When It Comes To Manifest What You Want

First off I want to welcome you to my new blog look. I was a bit tired of the old one and the mission statement was not really matching what I am trying to achieve here.

I hope you like the new header. Let me know what you think.

Now without further ado, let’s go to today’s post….


What is your job And what isn’t when it comes to manifest what you want

There is a way to manifest what you want.  Even though there are still tones of people out there who are not aware of it, yet. However, many people have been acquainted with their higher self, their subconscious mind and the law of attraction and are now aware of the fact that they can attract the things they want into their life.  In order to do this, there is a process you can follow, but you must know what is your job in such process, and what is not.

In this post I am going to talk about the steps that you can take to manifest what you want in your life and at what point you need to let go and let the universe do its job.

First Let the Universe Know What you Want

I speak to a lot of people who are saying they want this and they want that, but when I actually ask them if they have actually really asked for it concretely, they are saying what do you mean ask?  When you want to receive something into your life which you know will come from a force stronger than you, you need to ask for it. It doesn’t matter if you call such force, universe or God, what matters is that you ask.

Don’t suppose that the universe will deliver to you what you have never asked for.  That’s just not how the laws of the universe work.  That’s why Jesus said, “ask and you shall receive”. You don’t need to be a Christian to know that Jesus knew quite a bit about how the laws of the universe worked, that’s why he is often quoted by personal development mentors.  Jesus was powerful and strong, yet he knew how to ask and taught his followers that they needed to ask in order to receive.

Don’t Wish for it, don’t Hope for it, but Ask for it

How do you ask the universe what you want?  The three most practical ways to ask for what you want to the universe is by affirming it (saying it), visualizing it, and writing it down.  For best results you should do all three.

Affirm What you Want

Prepare a very specific “self talk” describing exactly what you want, always using the present tense and always using positive sentences.  For example, don’t say “I don’t smoke anymore” but “my lungs are healthy and clean”. Don’t say “I am not fat anymore”, but “I am thin”.  Don’t say “I am not poor anymore”, but “I am rich”.  I am sure you are getting the point here.

The reason why negatives don’t have the desired effect is that your subconscious mind knows no negative or positive.  It doesn’t know the difference. When you say not poor or poor, your subconscious mind register only with the word poor, and that goes for everything else.

Write Down what you Want

Besides having “affirmations” or “self talk” you should write plainly and simply what you want on paper.  I have a note book full of statements of what I want. Whether you want a car, a puppy, a house or you dream job, write down what you want in every detail.  The more specific you are the clearer it is for the universe to bring you what you want.

In my experience, when people don’t get what they want is that they are not really clear about what want. The universe tends to bring you what you know exactly.  The universe doesn’t work with fussiness.

Visualize what you Want

Along with describing and writing down what you want, you should try to visualize it as much as you can.  If you have trouble visualizing in your mind’s eyes try to “feel” what it would be like to have what you want.

The more you can feel it the more you will be able to visualize it over time. Usually feelings bring visualizations and visualizations brings feelings. Feeling what you want with all your senses is a powerful way to attract what you want.

What you can’t Ask the Universe

Once you’ve been very thorough about asking what you want using all three methods mentioned on this post, there is one thing that you cannot ask the universe and it’s “how” and “when”.  Even though you can put a precise date at which you want to accomplish something, the exact how and when is up to the universe to deliver it at the best time for you.

How we will get what we’ve asked comes from a force that is much more powerful and wiser than we are.

There is no way that you could know better than the universe when you are ready to receive what you’ve asked for.  To use the same type of example that Melody Fletcher uses.  If you hired an electrician to install the electrical wiring system in your house that’s all you would do, right? You ask for the service, but you are not going to tell the electrician how do his job, are you?  Of course not, because you know that he knows way better than you how to do it. That’s his job, not yours.

It’s the same thing when you put what you want out there for the universe to deliver.  Once you have asked, you need to release it, and let the universe do its job.  Just like the electrician will do a much better job on his own than if you’d try to tell him what to do, the universe does a much better job than we can conceive with our limited beliefs and insights.   If you let the universe do its job it will bring you what you’ve asked for at the perfect time in the perfect way.

So, it’s your turn now. Have you manifested what you want yet? How did you do it? Let us know.

  1. Can I ask the universe for a million dollars 🙂

    Great step-by-step guide to really nailing down your desires, Sylviane. Lots of times we just want “something” or maybe want things to be “better”. But what does that really mean? If we can’t define exactly what we want then how is it ever going to happen? We probably wouldn’t even know it if we saw it.

    I’m a big fan of writing things down (you probably knew that!) because it forces you to slow down and think. There is only so fast your hand can move so you have to slow your brain down and wait for it to catch up. Then you can start to really see what you want and what you’re thinking. It’s also a great thing to have as a reference for when you need to pull out your deepest desires.

    I’m going to write down all my goals right now and maybe I’ll even ask for a chocolate cake 😉

    1. Well, Carol, yes, you can ask for a million dollar or two if you want.

      The only thing that would separate you from that million dollar is your subconscious programming, that’s what we all work on… reprogramming our subconscious mind so we can attract more and more of what we want.

      Writing things down is a very good habit and it’s powerful. I read once that writing is the action of thinking and as you said, when we write we need to slow down are thinking.

  2. Ooooh, I LOVE this…I see you and I have similar ideals regarding how to manifest things and what to put out to the Universe!

    “Don’t Wish for it, don’t Hope for it, but Ask for it” << EXACTLY!! The "hope-wish" factor never works for anyone. Hoping and wishing only gives people a feeling of doubt because, by their very nature and definition, these words convey disbelief.

    Love it and I'm definitely sharing this one all over the place!

    1. Hi Kesha,

      I am glad you like the post. What better feeling when someone seems to enjoy what you’ve spent time and love to write 🙂

      Years ago I had a mentor who told me to erase 3 words from my vocabulary and those words were, wish, hope and try. You don’t wish, hope or try, you DO he said!

      Thanks for your visit, Kesha 🙂

  3. Hey Sylviane,

    You’ll be proud to know that I do all of this and have been for about two months straight now, going into my third. I also throw in each day my gratitude list. I speak what I’m grateful for each and every day.

    I’ve gotten to the point that I think about what I want all the time. When I take Kayla out I’m singing a little song I made up in my head and I laugh and smile because I’m so happy. I just love it and I feel fabulous.

    One of the things I asked for came rather quickly so I was extremely pleased about that. So I do know for a fact this does work.

    Love this post and this topic so thanks for sharing it.

    Enjoy your day now.


    P.S. Love the new look and the header. Great job.

    1. I am so exited for you Adrienne, and I can totally imagine you singing your little song while smiling and laughing! I’m so happy for you!

      I am so happy that you are confirming to anyone who would read this that it does work. Yes, yes, and yes it does!!!

      You really like my new header? great. I like it so much better than the other one.

      Thanks for coming, Adrienne and have a good one 🙂

  4. Sylviane,

    Love the post. I like to replace universe with God, but I can totally agree with everything else. Affirmations, visualizing, writing it down…all of it. I’ve read several studies of how two different groups of people went to do the same task.

    The only difference is one group visualized succeeding at the task prior to completing it. That group completed the task with a higher success rate than the other group.

    I always thought this was fascinating.

    1. Hi Ken,

      Yes, fascinating indeed, right? Stories /studies like that proves that what we think and our intent is crucial for success or the lack of it.

      I’ve heard few stories, even some people dying because of a strong will to do so. Our mind is powerful.

  5. This is a lovely explanations of how the law of attraction works. I do believe that you can be sort of specific about the time to a degree, but letting it go and working as if it has already happen is the key. It helps you to maintain focus and when it does happen you are not shocked or surprised just grateful and prepared for what you have asked to come to you.

  6. Hi Sylviane

    First I love your new look blog and the header.
    I love this topic too. I think your advice on how to ask is really good as I hear people saying their desires in a negative way often (like I do not want to be fat).

    I have one friend who is the fastest manifester (is that a word?) I have ever witnessed. Recently she decided she wanted to fly business class from Australia to New York for a month. Her husband had just left a job so it seemed a bit out of reach.
    The week after she received a call from a client of hers who used to work for Qantas airlines. She told my friend she had two return trip business class tickets to New York that her and her husband could not use. She wanted to gift them to my friend!
    When I went wow wow – how do you do this so easily – she said I ask and I know it will happen. I really got the level of trust, no idea of the how and when.

    So Sylivane you are spot on it works. I just need to be more consistent with asking.

    Great post!

    1. Hi Sue,

      The example of your friend says it all. Many of us do ask, but we only sorta kinda “believe” that it will happen and that’s the big problem. we have to KNOW without the shadow of a doubt that it will happen and it does.

      Unfortunately, that’s the tricky part and that’s when life coaches help people the most. “the believing part”.

  7. Such an inspiring text! Especially for me these days, honestly, I’m going to switch job next week, I’m just fed up with my old one, and I am not well paid so I don’t want to stay on a creepy place.

  8. Wow, this was very timely for me, I just got done asking for what I want prior to opening your email to this blog. It takes courage sometimes to ask and it’s not easy to make major changes in one’s life. I’d been thinking about one for a while and I just took some steps to maybe make that change. Time will tell but I feel better that I’ve done something (asked) about it rather than just thinking.

    I believe if you talk aloud or write it down it makes you feel like you MUST do it. If you are just thinking it – it ‘s not something that you NEED to do NOW.

    Love your new blog look – I had to come twice because I wasn’t sure if I was in the right place 🙂

    1. Hi Lisa,

      So glad to see you here and so sorry that your comment got stuck in the moderation land. Once in a while I check all comments and that’s how I find some people’s comments that are not spam stuck there. Sorry about that.

      I am glad that this post was there at the right time for you. Yes, my header as got some serious change, sorry for the confusion and I’m glad you like it.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Nice seeing your hear. Yes, indeed the how is better left for the larger than us.

      Hope to see you here again soon 🙂

  9. Wonderful post!

    Yes indeed, the Law of Attraction does work as I’ve tried it out a couple of times when what you want and wish for does happen. But yes, just as you rightly mentioned, you need to think positive and affirm and visualize what you want with all your heart. Thereafter let the subconscious mind do it’s part.

    Most of the time it does work, but when our mind is pre-occupied or stressed, the LOA doesn’t actually work. I guess that happens because our focus is elsewhere and not really in what we really want.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    1. Hi Harleena,

      As a matter of fact the LOA “always” works, when our mind is occupied and confused with other things we attract some of that as opposed to attract some of that we want.

      This is why, while we CAN’T control every single thought, we need to check often so we can attract what we really want to attract vs what we don’t want.

  10. First, I have to say, I love the new look of your blog!

    Ten, or fifteen years ago, I had a very interesting conversation with my aunt connected to this topic. That was my senior year in high-school, and I was fed up with learning. I said all the time “I can’t don this” or “I can’t learn it” or “I’ll fail the test”. She told me I should think more postively and do not use not. She told me that universe simply can’t understand nots. From then I always thinking in a positive way, and believe me, it works!

    1. Hi Sandy,

      Wow, your aunt knew everything she needed to know. She was so right. the universe and the subconscious which is part of it do not understand NOTS. I’m so glad you know that now 🙂

      I’m glad you like the new look of my post.

  11. Well Hello Sylviane

    Thanks for the reminder, having finally given in and read ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill, I begun to appreciate the power of positive thought and mapping out your ideal destination.

    However of late I have returned to my normal routine and stopped keeping this destination as my core thought by not doing the daily routine of reciting this ideal destination vision thus ensuring that it colors every decision I make.

  12. I like that you hit on visualistaion as the first step to achieving what you want. You’ve got to be able to see it clearly first and then you can make it possible. Good point!!

  13. I never realized that the things I want to have in life I would only have to ask for it. I admit I never did ask for them. Thanks for pointing how to realize that and one must ask for what they want.
    I also did not know that the subconscious does not differentiate between negative and positive. When I achieved my ideal weight a few years back, I said “I am not fat anymore” – I guess I should have said “I am thin”. This sure is a thought-provoking post. Thanks for sharing!
