Have you heard of effortless manifesting?
There’s a secret that many people don’t know. That secret is that you can manifest anything you want.
And you can manifest those things easily by following three simple steps.
Most of us try to manifest backwards
Three simple steps? I know this might sound too good to be true.
But that’s only because most of us go about trying to get what we want the wrong way.
We tend to think that we have to MAKE things happen. You’ve probably seen a coffee mug or Pinterest design or T-shirt with those very words printed on them, am I right? Every other day I come across some Instagram post that says something like, “Make sh*t happen.”
But this idea is totally backwards!
In fact, it violates a law.
Effortless manifesting and the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is one you might be familiar with, but may not fully understand. It says that when we allow ourselves to be in a receptive, effortless state, we begin to manifest what we want into our lives.

Being in the feeling of what you want to create allows you to become the co-creator of the world you want to see.
Esther Hicks is a great spiritual teacher who channels spiritual beings collectively called Abraham. They have magnificent teachings on the Law of Attraction and the spiritual beliefs of allowing the Universe to have your back. This is what Abraham-Hicks say:
“There are no happier people on this planet than those who decide that they want something. Define what they want, get hold of the feeling of it, even before its manifestation, then joyously watch the unfolding as piece by piece by piece begins to unfold. That’s the feeling of your hands in the clay.”
The key to manifesting is to dwell in the feeling you want
If you want abundance, be in the feeling of abundance and abundance will come to you — quickly and effortlessly. If you want romance, be in the feeling of romance and it will appear in your life.
Does this sound amazing, but maybe a little heady? Are you thinking, “Okay, Gab, this sounds incredible… but how do I actually do it?!”
Don’t worry. I have three concrete and simple steps for you to take.
The 3 steps to effortless manifesting
Watch the video below or keep reading for my three steps to effortless manifesting.
Step 1: Decide what you want
What is it that you want? Become unapologetic about what you want. Own it. Believe it. Trust that it can be yours. Write it down right now. I want to be seen in the world in this way. I want to attract my romantic partner. I want to attract more abundance into my life.
The day before OWN called me, asking me to be on SuperSoul Sunday, I was sitting at my desk and this energy just moved through me, and I picked up a paper and a pen and I wrote, I am ready to interviewed by Oprah.
No joke, literally the next day I received a phone call from her company saying, “We’d like to have you interviewed by Oprah on SuperSoul Sunday.” That’s how fast the Universe works! When you’re in alignment with what you want and you feel it, then you begin to effortlessly manifest it into your life. The Universe supports you.
Step 2: Cultivate the feeling
Get ahold of whatever it feels like to be in the desire of what it is that you want to create. The miracle of what happened in the moment that I wrote I am ready to be interviewed by Oprah wasn’t that I wrote it down or just said it out loud.
The miracle was that I felt it.
I cultivated a feeling and a knowing and a desire and a joy around what that would mean for me. I cultivated a feeling of readiness, stillness and receptivity. The phone call may have been on its way no matter what. But I sped it up with that energetic intention and that belief system.
How to cultivate the feeling you want
When you lean into the feeling of that manifestation, you allow it to effortlessly come into form. You may want to meditate on the feeling. Sit for 5 or 10 minutes and visualize what you want effortlessly manifesting. Feel the greatness of it. It’s safe to feel good. It’s good to feel good!
You may want to say your desire out loud and let those words cultivate the energy and awareness of what it feels like to be in that manifestation.
Trust that if you’re in the feeling of the manifestation, then you are already living out your desire, even if it has not come into form. This is a practice of, like Abraham-Hicks say, getting your hands in the clay and building, growing, cultivating, designing the feeling and the life that you want to experience.
Step 3: Joyously watch it unfold
When you see these miracle moments begin to occur, after you set your intention and feel the feeling, then you must celebrate and appreciate the miracles. You must joyously watch it unfold.
See yourself enjoy every single day with the small manifestations. Be on the lookout for them. Recognize, “Oh wow, this little moment is supporting my desired goal.” Or, “Oh wow, I feel my energy is in alignment right now with my desire. I’m going to celebrate that.”
Joyously witness the unfolding of your dreams. As these beautiful miracles begin to unfold and you bring even more joy to this process, you will begin to create even more and even faster. And even more profoundly than you could imagine.
This is this beautiful practice of getting your hands in the clay and co-creating your reality. This is effortless manifesting.
