Words have power. Intention has power. YOU have power. You have the power to manifest whatever it is you desire through words and intention. Combined with right (read: good) intention and love, you can attract whatever you want.

There are some things to consider. The universe in neutral. By that I mean, it does not see good or bad, negative or positive. What is, is. When you bring something into being (via a thought, a wish, a desire), the universe says “HEY they must want more of THAT!” and it sends it to you. When you dwell on not having enough money, you are putting out the energy of lacking money – and that’s what you get more of! We are co-creators of our own existence. We have free will and the universe, our guides, teachers and angels will send us what we ask for.  Have you ever told a little white lie that came true (like called in sick then actually got sick)? That’s you manifesting! You put that thought out there and the universe – in all it’s neutral glory – made it happen.

Adding a ritual to these thoughts brings that intention to life in the real world. A ritual is a physical act that can reinforce your thought, wish etc. Going through intentional (there’s that word again!) physical actions while focusing on a particular thought or outcome is a powerful manifestation tool. Here is a ritual to help you attract more of what you want.

Ritual to Attract What You Want:

Start from a place of gratitude. Give thanks for all the things that are going right and that you are thankful for. This mindset sends the universe a message that you want more of these good things.

Send love to all four winds – use the compass app on your smartphone to find south, west, north and east. Face each one and send love to that wind. You “send love” by stretching out your arms and simply saying “I send love to the South Wind” while projecting love to that direction. Repeat for the other three directions. You can also send love to Mother Earth and Great Spirit/God (whatever you call the higher power).

Create a representation of the item or outcome you seek. If it’s a house, find a picture of a house. If it’s a loving partner, find a picture that represents a happy, loving couple. A cautionary note on manifesting money: THE US DOLLAR IS BASED ON THE DEBT SYSTEM. Using dollar bills could represent debt, not income. Therefore, I recommend you focus on manifesting what you would use the money FOR vs money itself. So if it’s financial security, use images that represent being worry and debt-free. If it’s an exotic vacation for the family once a year, use images that reflect that.  We’re going for the end result and we don’t want to limit the universe in how we get it (other than harming others to get it).

Light a candle. I prefer white, but it can be any color. Typically, green represents financial security, blue health and red love. I like white because (to me) it represents pure intentions.

Say 3 times: “I bring ___________________ into my life. I bring it now.”

Now, I modified this for my own use. I say “I bring _________________ into my life with the highest good of all involved. I bring it now.” I do this because I am powerful at manifestation and I don’t want to get a check for two million dollars if it means it’s an inheritance from one of my parents or siblings dying. Feel free to modify this ritual to fit your particular religious faith.

You can repeat this ritual as often as you like.
