I'll be the first to admit that the concept of manifestation is kind of hoaky. But I really think there is something to it. Whether it's the universe or your own mind or something else entirely that makes it work, living your life as if something you want is going to happen tends to help it happen.
"[Manifestation is] about creating the life you want and being deliberate about those steps," Maryann Reid, founder of Aphanista.com, a career and business platform for multicultural women, tells Bustle. "To be deliberate, you need to have a clear intention of what you want to achieve, and to do that, you need to be able to focus on what those goals are. When you focus on something, your will strengthens, and when your will strengthens, it develops a feeling of power to move things in your favor."
Manifestation can be a double-edged sword, though, Reid says. Be careful what you wish for, because you could end up in a job you don't actually want if you haven't given it enough thought. "You have to be very clear on what your intentions are because you never know what you're manifesting," says Reid.
