Learning how to get into alignment for manifesting is one of the biggest keys to successful manifestation.
There are a variety of manifestation techniques that can be used to manifest your desires but if you’re out of alignment, you’re fighting an uphill battle.
But why is it so important to be in alignment for manifestation?
Everything in life is energy, and everything in life is connected. The food you eat, the people you talk to, your pets – they all have vibrational energy.
The Law of Attraction states that “like attracts like” – this means that high vibrations attract more high vibrations and low vibrations attract more low vibrations.
When you have high vibrational energy, you’ll feel happy and light. You’re not constantly worrying about the future or feeling stressed. You’re in alignment with the universe and you’re safe in the knowledge that things in your life are going exactly as they are meant to.

How to Get Into Alignment for Manifesting
Now that you know why it’s so important to be in alignment to successfully manifest your desires, here’s how to get aligned with what you want:
1. Live As If
One of the best ways to get into alignment for manifesting is actually quite simple – start by living as if want you want has already happened.
If your desire is to lose weight and feel great when you try on new clothes in the dressing room, think about how you would live if you were already at your ideal weight.
How would your daily life be different? How would you spend your weekends? What would you eat? What kind of activities would you do?
Once you’ve answered all of those questions, start living them.
Go to the mall, try on the clothes you love, and smile at yourself in the mirror. Go to the beach and rock your swimsuit. Eat a healthy meal for dinner.
Acting as if you’ve already manifested what you want gets you into a positive mindset which aids in true manifestation.
2. Think Positive
If your thoughts are constantly negative and focused on what you lack, then that’s exactly what you’re likely to manifest. Instead of focusing on what you lack, switch to having an abundance mindset, where you focus on the positive aspects of your life – the things you DO have.
Here’s an example:
“Every time I check my bank balance it’s in the negative. I guess I’m just the type of person who will be broke my entire life.”
You literally just told yourself and the universe “I’m the type of person who will be broke my entire life.”
Remember, thoughts become things, so be very careful with the thoughts you allow space in your head.
Instead, switch your thoughts to not what you lack, but to the opportunities you have (or you can create) to change your situation.
3. Express Gratitude
Expressing gratitude for what you already have is key to manifesting what you want. If you can’t be grateful for what you have right now, why would the universe bless you with more?
Sit down with a pen and paper and write down everything you’re thankful for. If you find yourself naturally focusing on what you don’t have, try to flip your thinking.
Here are some examples:
You may not have a lot of material possessions or money in the bank, but perhaps you have a beautiful dog who is over-the-moon excited whenever you get home from work.
Perhaps you’re not happy with your current weight, but you’re healthy and you have strong, shiny hair.
You may not have a romantic partner right now, but you have a best friend who knows you better than anyone and loves you unconditionally.
By showing the universe that you’re thankful for what you currently have, you’re showing gratitude and opening yourself up to further abundance.
4. Be Present in the Moment
While it’s great to plan for the future and set goals, life shouldn’t just be about what we want to happen tomorrow, next year, or 10 years from now.
We’re not guaranteed tomorrow, so instead of only focusing on what you want to manifest and how much better your life will be when it happens, start enjoying your life now.
Be mindful and fully absorb yourself in every experience.
Try to find joy out of even simple, seemingly mundane things, like your cat jumping in your lap. Pay attention to the warmth of her body, listen to the peaceful sound of her purr and how soft her fur is.
Eventually, you’ll start to realize that the “little things” are actually “big things” and they mean much more than material possessions.
5. Give Yourself Permission
You don’t need to ask anyone for permission to manifest your desires – the only person you need permission from is yourself.
How many times have you been held back from doing something you wanted to do because you were afraid of what someone else might think?
Here’s an example: you may not have physically asked someone “Is it OK with you if I start my own small business?” But by deciding against starting your own small business because you were afraid people might mock you or tell you it’s a bad idea, you gave THEM permission to decide how you live your life, instead of giving yourself permission.
This goes for anything you’re trying to manifest – give yourself permission to manifest what you want and don’t allow anyone else’s negative input to impact your decisions.
Signs You’re Not in Alignment for Manifestation
Not sure if you’re currently in alignment for manifestation? Here are some signs that you need to better align with what you want:
You Don’t Feel Gratitude for What You Already Have
Manifesting anything in your life all starts with gratitude.
No matter who you are or what type of life you’re currently living, you have things to be grateful for.
The first, and biggest – you’re alive. And there are almost certainly more things to be grateful for, even if it might be difficult to recognize them right now.
But now’s the time to start practicing gratitude for what you have each and every day, and to stop comparing yourself to others.
And here’s a quick heads up – some of the most financially wealthy people who seem to “have it all” are actually bitter, full of hate, and not something anyone would truly aspire to.
Your Mind is Full of Negative Thoughts
Do you find that most of your thoughts and feelings are negative? When you journal, pay attention to your mood and your mindset.
If everything you write about is a rant or vent, then that is definitely lowering your vibration.
You Seem to Have a Lot of Bad Luck
Do you ever feel like you’re just unlucky? No matter what you do, bad things always keep happening and nothing ever seems to go your way?
It’s true that sometimes we’re just hit with bad luck (or good luck!) that we had nothing to do with. In fact, that’s the definition of luck – “success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one’s own actions.”
But it’s also important to remember that like attracts like – if you want to be in alignment, you have to let this go, and instead focus on what you WANT out of life.
You Feel Lost or Confused About Your Purpose
Sometimes, your vibrational energy gets low because you’re a little lost or confused about your purpose.
You don’t know what you want in life or what direction to go in next. This might be a sign that it is time for some self-reflection.
Being in alignment for manifestation is one of the keys to successfully manifesting your desires. Now you know how, it’s up to you to take the steps you need to take.
