Does manifestation work?

The law of attraction and manifestation means focusing on an idea and bringing it to reality. Simply put as that, it’s pseudoscience. I think we can all agree that you can’t just habitually think of something and have it unfold in front of you. If so, all my loved ones would be rich and I’d be married to the love of my life with a whole lot of dogs by now lol

I’ll tell you what is backed by science though- neuroplasticity. Your mental and emotional state is malleable. Through your behaviors and the experiences you have everyday- you can exercise your brain and mental state just like you do your muscles. Now where does behavior stem from? Your thoughts- here’s how

Neurons that fire together, wire together - neuropsychologist, Donald Hebb

Neural networks form based on what you routinely think, feel and do. Proactively think and act the way you want to until it becomes unconscious behavior

How? First, Set your intention based on your desires and the person you want to be

Second, create a realistic strategy

Then, routinely practice what you preach

It’s not easy. Your genes and environment are players in this game too. They could constrain you but ultimately- the choice is up to you. I’m a firm believer in that

The more you think about what you want and take purposeful action, the more you will “manifest” what you want
