[Sept. 26th update]: I just launched my new book, Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams!
Whether you already have it or not, I want to help you get ready for the powerful methods I teach in the book.
So… let’s talk about the #1 key to manifesting. NUMBER. ONE.
What is the #1 key to manifesting?
There are many important elements of attracting your desires… but the #1 key to manifesting is to cultivate the energy of what you want to experience.
Cultivating the energy of what you want is crucial because manifesting happens on the level of energy.
It doesn’t matter how many vision boards you make or affirmations you say. Ultimately, it’s all about your energy. So I want to demystify this concept for you and give you some ways to start practicing it.
Our energy attracts our experiences
We’re all beings of energy. When our energy vibrates at a low level, we attract low-level circumstances. But when our energy is in a high vibration, we attract positive outcomes.
I know that may sound heady, but it’s the truth. This is why the first chapter in Super Attractor is titled “The Universe Always Delivers.” Your energy is always sending a message to the Universe.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you want to create more abundance in your life, but what you feel in your daily life is a sense of lack or deprivation. You think a lot about what you don’t have, and you compare yourself to people who have more.
Since what you’re feeling is a sense of lack, you manifest more lack. This is because each thought and feeling we have sends an energetic message to the Universe. And the Universe always responds in kind.
The Universe will deliver us people, experiences and outcomes that match our vibrational frequency. You can write a million times in your journal, “I am abundant,” but if you don’t feel abundant, you won’t attract abundance.
It’s really important to understand that we’re always manifesting, whether we’re conscious of it or not.
The #1 key to manifesting: Cultivate the feeling you want to experience!
This practice is so huge that if you practice it regularly, you’ll start to see your desires come into form quickly… and you’ll have fun doing it!
In this video I talk about how to start cultivating the energy you want. Watch it and then keep reading for a more detailed breakdown.
Step 1: Get clear about what you want
Before you can start attracting what you want, you first need to know what it is you want.
Let’s go back to our abundance example. Your first step is to clarify your desire. It might be something like, “I want to feel abundant. I want to have money in the bank and I want to feel financially free.”
When you’re clarifying what you want, focus primarily on how it will feel to have it. This will help you to release it, which is step 2.
Step 2: Turn over your desire
Release it, trusting that it’s being taken care of. You can say this simple prayer to turn over your desire:
“I step back and let the Universe lead the way.”

Step 3: Do everything you can to support the feeling you want
Once you’ve gotten clear about your desire and turned it over to the care of the Universe, your next step is to do whatever it takes to support that feeling.
So if you want to feel loved and find romance, then make sure that you’re loving yourself very deeply. Tend to the non-romantic relationships in your life and appreciate the love you do have. Really let yourself receive love from others and marinate in that good feeling.
If you want to feel abundant and earn more money, then make sure you’re respecting and enjoying your money. Pay your bills, save what you can and indulge mindfully on experiences and things that bring you joy.
These don’t have to be extravagant purchases. You can find abundance in a cup of coffee! Let yourself feel grateful for an iced coffee on a hot summer day.
Appreciating what you have now will attract even more of it to you.
Give yourself permission to feel good
This is very common. It’s also completely backward!
When we tell ourselves something like, “I’ll feel good once I’ve got money in the bank,” or “I’ll be happy once I’m in a relationship,” we’re putting the outcome before the feeling.
We think that by living in fear we’ll attract joy. But the truth is that by living in joy, we become a magnet for more joy!
It’s safe to feel how you want to feel even before your manifestation has come into form.
Here’s how I put it in Super Attractor:
When you approach the world as a vibrational reality rather than a physical space, that’s when your desires become real. When you’re able to access the energy of abundance and have faith that the Universe always provides, you can begin to feel your desire come into form before it shows up in the physical world.
Step 4: Join My Manifesting Challenge
Today, commit to cultivating the feeling you want
As you start to dwell in the feeling of what it is that you want, that feeling becomes your reality. Cultivate the feeling and then take actions to really support that feeling!
This practice is the #1 key to manifesting, and I hope it supports you. If you feel called to share, leave a comment and declare that you’re ready to manifest what you want!
