Whether you realize it or not, you are in a constant state of manifestation. Your inner thoughts are reflected in your outer world. However, most of us manifest on a subconscious level. Our subconscious thoughts and beliefs (many of which are so ingrained that we don’t even realize we have them) inform the decisions we make, the way we live our lives, and what we attract.
Many of us have a subconscious that is more negative than we may realize. Have you ever found yourself thinking “it must be nice to make a six-figure income, but I’m just not that type of person” or “I’ve always been unlucky in love.”
Perhaps you just laugh these thoughts off without realizing that they are actually shaping your reality. You are subconsciously manifesting your reality.
Conscious manifestation, on the other hand, is about making a conscious and informed decision to think positive thoughts and start taking action towards bringing the thing we desire into our life.
Conscious manifestation gives us power over our lives. This helps to eliminate the false belief many people hold, that life just happens to us, regardless of what we do or don’t do.
By practicing conscious manifestation, we grow to understand that we have more control over our lives than we think. And if we can gain control over our conscious thoughts and actions, we can start to manifest the life we desire.

What is Intention?
Intention is the foundation of conscious manifestation because it focuses your energy on what you want. It’s a determination to think and act in a certain way – to break the pattern of unconscious thoughts and subsequent behaviors that stop you from manifesting your desires.
Intention does not have to be complicated – all that’s required for intention are a goal and an action plan with steps that will lead you there.
Our thoughts are where true power lies because they have the capacity to create tangible manifestations from nothingness.
The first step is to assess any negative thoughts, behaviors, and patterns. Work on letting them go and replacing them with positives.
The ultimate goal is to create a positive environment that fosters the self-belief and motivation you need to take the steps required to manifest what you want in life.
How Does Intention Work?
Conscious manifestation requires an intentional decision to shift thoughts and patterns of thinking. This means you must first decide that you are ready to do the work required to uproot negativity and embrace positivity.
In making that intentional shift, your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs become better aligned (2). This then puts you in a position to produce the appropriate actions needed to support those thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.
First, you would uproot any negative thoughts, behaviors, and patterns. Such things can include negative self-talk, destructive behavior, or surrounding yourself with discouraging people. Then you would replace those negatives with positive counterparts.
Using the previously mentioned example, this would mean introducing positive self-talk via affirmations or meditation, establishing healthy behaviors, and surrounding yourself with positive people.
Implementing intention allows you to move from a state of just being hopeful, to a state of action. Your energy and thoughts become more focused and you are able to channel your efforts more strategically.
How to Effectively Use Intention to Produce Conscious Manifestation
Once you make the intentional decision to cease the negative thoughts, behaviors, and patterns that are stopping you from achieving your goals and dreams, you naturally start to move into a space of conscious manifestation.
Your positive thoughts, behaviors, and patterns start to inform all aspects of your life and help to get you into alignment for manifestation.
By embracing positive thought processes and behavior patterns, you are able to establish a clear vision for your future, establish specific goals and develop the motivation you need to propel yourself forwards, towards your dream life.
One of the biggest myths about manifestation is that you simply make a wish and wait for whatever you wished for to manifest. However, that’s not even close to accurate.
Conscious manifestation is about setting an intention, replacing negative thoughts and behaviors with positive ones, and being motivated enough to take action to achieve your goals and dreams.
If you are truly ready to make your dreams come true, move beyond wishing and get intentional about the pursuit of those dreams. You hold the key to your future, and by unlocking intention and conscious manifestation you can unlock your dreams.
