How to manifest friendships

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! 

With the right mindset and manifestation techniques, you can attract meaningful connections and the kind of friends you desire. 

What is manifestation?

In short, manifestation is the law of attraction. It’s the practice of thinking certain positive thoughts and emotions to attract your desired outcome. By having a clear vision of what you want, and using one or more methods below, you can manifest almost anything.

Manifestation methods

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.

“I am surrounded by like-minded individuals who have similar interests.”

Vision board – a collection of quotes, words, and images of the type of people that could make up your ideal friend.

Visualization exercises – this is where you visualise 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 visualisations and affirmations is a great place to start.

Visualisation 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 easy 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. More best friends, 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 next 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 friends
  • 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 with your new best friend.

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.

Visualise yourself connecting with them on social media and introducing them to other people in your life.

Just like in the journaling exercise, visualise what your new friend might look like, the types of clothes and jewellery 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

If you want to learn more about the manifestation process, there are several books you can read. Some of the best books on manifestation include:

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!

Likewise, I think you have also probably heard of How to Win Friends and Influence People. You can use the techniques in this book to make people like you, win people over to your way of thinking, and subtly change people without making them hate you. What a great addition this would make to your journaling session.

If you are after something that is full of manifestation techniques, including a foolproof equation, this is the book you need to read. And I mean read. I listened to the audiobook version. But I wish I had a physical copy so I could go back and read sections again. I’m not one for taking notes, but I’d take notes and dog-ear this book until it didn’t look like a book anymore. I suppose that’s the downside to listening to audiobooks while you drive!
