Ever wondered how to manifest friends? I have. And the good news is yes, you can manifest friends. In fact, you can manifest almost anything! But there are a few important things you need to know about the easy steps to successful manifesting.
What is manifestation?
In short, manifestation is the law of attraction. It’s the practice of thinking certain positive thoughts in order to make them your reality. By having a clear vision of what you want, and using one or more methods below, you can manifest almost anything.
Before you get manifesting, you will need to decide which manifestation method will work best for you.
Affirmations – positive affirmations can help you change negative thoughts, helping you to become a vibrational match for what you are trying to manifest
“People enjoy being friends with me”
Vision board – gather quotes, words, and images of the type of people that could make up your ideal friend
Visualization exercises – this is where you visualize the things you want in your new friendships in the present tense like it is already happening.
Journalling – there are many different journaling techniques for manifestation. Journaling your visualizations and affirmations is a great place to start.
Visualization is what I think to be the most powerful tool in manifestation. But using a combination of all of these will help you be successful in manifesting a friendship.
How to manifest friendship in 4 actionable steps
Get specific about what you want to manifest
Before you can begin (technically the first step!) to manifest friends, you will need to ask yourself a few questions. These questions can help you determine the kind of friends you are looking for.
- What common interests would you like to have?
- What core values might you share with this person?
- What kind of person makes a great friend?
- What you are willing to do to meet new people? (goodbye comfort zone!)
- Are you after a best friend or just want to be good friends?
- Do you already have a specific type of person in mind?
- Do you want to make a lot of friends?
- Do you want to improve your social life?
- Why do you want better friends?
Think about the specific outcome that you’re trying to manifest. A best friend, a new friend group, more friendship circles, or even true love (which often starts as a friendship). Include the little things, the good things and some issues that might arise.
Manifest friends with affirmations
The second step is to use affirmations to remind yourself that meaningful friendships are possible. You can say these before you get out of bed in the morning, in front of the mirror throughout the day, or right before you nod off to sleep. Here are a few examples of affirmations to get you started.
- My friendships are beautiful and fulfilling.
- I am open to meeting different types of people
- Positive and like-minded people enter my life every day
- I make friends naturally and without effort
- I always have a good time with my friends
- My authentic self attracts true friends
I think it’s also important to affirm your current relationships to help transform them into your ideal relationship. There’s a good chance your current friendships could use a little extra time and effort.
Journaling to manifest friends
The third step is to journal about how you would meet and spend your time with your new amazing friends. Maybe they are also a busy mom and you meet at school because your kids are friends. You journal about asking them if they want to catch up at a park after school. You take note of what you are wearing, what the weather is like, the topics of conversation, and if there is a follow-up play date or mom date arranged.
Perhaps you are old friends from high school and you reconnect through a current mutual friend or a new job. Again, take note of what you are wearing, what your surroundings look like, and the conversation.
You could even write all of this out like a first-person story. Include the dialogue with talking marks and exclamation points.
Manifest friends with visualisation techniques
The final step is to visualize your new friendship. Use positive emotions to outline the way you meet this new person. Have the conversations in your head that you would like to have. Converse with them about where they live, what their family is made up of, your hobbies and favourite foods, and what you both do for work. Visualize yourself connecting with them on social media and introducing them to other people in your life. Just like in the journaling exercise, visualize what your new friend might look like, the types of clothes and jewelry they wear, and how they style their hair. Imagine their body language while you are talking and how that changes with the topic of conversation. Try to feel the feelings that might come up during your interactions. Like happiness when you learn they share some of the same hobbies or excitement when it comes to light that you both live close by.
I’d love to know how you go with these manifestation steps and learn about the results of your new healthy friendship. At the end of the day, the most important step is to make the decision to begin.
Books about the manifestation process
I feel like almost everyone has heard about The Secret. And if you haven’t. I do wonder which rock you have been living under. In summary, Rhonda Byrne explains that in controlling your thoughts and establishing positive energy in them, any aspect of life is achievable via your subconscious mind. And if reading is not your thing, it was actually a full-length feature film before it became a book!
