How to manifest an hourglass body: 9 tips that work

Tired of wearing t-shirts to cover your stomach? Itching for a rockin’ bikini bod?

You’ve come to the right place.

Here are some of our favorite tips on how to manifest an hourglass body:

1) Write down a full description of how you’d like your body to look like

Let’s begin your journey to the perfect body with a really inspiring quote from the author Robin S. Sharma:

“Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality.”

In other words, your vision is created in the mind and is then brought to life on the physical level.

And, according to Roxie Nafousi, the author of Manifest: 7 Steps to Living Your Best Life, “the first step to any manifesting journey is to be clear in your vision. To put it simply, you can’t get to where you want to go if you don’t know where it is you are headed.”

This means you need to write down a clear vision of the perfect body you’d like to have.

If you need a little help, ask yourself these questions:

What is it exactly that you want?

How much weight do you want to lose?

How much muscle do you want to gain?

How skinny do you want your stomach to be?

How do you want your hips to look?

How do you want your arms to look?

Write down all the specific details of your ideal body shape in detail and make sure you stick to them throughout the process.

2) Create a vision board to help you visualize the results you want

The next tip that will get you one step closer to manifesting an hourglass body is to create a vision board.

A vision board is made up of images, quotes, affirmations, and photos that help to evoke a positive attitude toward whatever it is you are trying to achieve.

When creating your vision board, try to use as many details as possible. Place photos of the body you’d like to have, or write down affirmations about your desired figure on sticky notes.

Nafousi explains it:

“There is no right or wrong way to do this; you can create a vision board in any way you like, as long as you make something that helps you visualize the life you want to manifest.”

This means that you can also create photo collages, use sticky notes, or cut pictures out of magazines.

Whatever you do, make sure that the vision board you create will help you envision the end result and be your motivation during this process.

After you finish it, place it somewhere you can see it every day.

3) Change your thoughts to change your entire vibrational frequency

Another really important tip that can help you manifest an hourglass body is to change your thoughts.

Here’s how Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks – authors of Manifest Your Desires: 365 Ways to Make Your Dream a Reality explain this:

“The only reason you have not already gotten what you desire is because you are holding yourself in a vibrational pattern that doesn’t match the vibration of your desire.”

What does this mean?

It means that whenever you think negatively, you’re holding yourself in a vibrational frequency that will attract other similar negative thoughts and will lead to a negative outcome.

So, if you want to have an hourglass body, stop saying things like “I’ll never get wide hips and a flat stomach” or “I’m too old to have an hourglass body” because this will only attract thoughts and feelings of frustration or hopelessness and it will de-tune you from your original goal.

“Everything is energy,” said Einstein. And all energy vibrates at different frequencies.

Simply put, unless you believe that you can manifest an hourglass body, you won’t be able to do it.

4) Learn more about the scientific proof that manifesting a body change is possible

Here’s what you should do next if you really want to manifest an hourglass body:

Learn more about the scientific proof that manifesting a body change is possible.


Because the more you believe in it, the more it will manifest in your life.

According to the Journal of Neurophysiology, a group of scientists was able to prove that anyone can increase muscle strength just by thinking about it.


The experiment, part of the study called The power of the mind: the cortex as a critical determinant of muscle strength/weakness, looked like this:

They put casts on the non-dominant wrists of a number of subjects and then divided them into 2 groups.

The subjects from group 1 were asked to imagine they were actually doing strength exercises with their wrists 5 days per week.

The subjects from group 2 didn’t do anything out of the ordinary during the 4 week’s experiment.

The result?

The people who constantly thought about doing exercises with their wrists 5 days a week experienced an increase in their muscular mass, while the others experienced a decrease.

What does this mean?

It means that you can manifest an hourglass body – or anything else you’d like to achieve – if you believe it’s possible and allow yourself to focus on your goals.

5) Use the best positive affirmations or mantras for manifesting an hourglass body

If you’re a novice at this, you probably don’t know much about positive affirmations or mantras.

To make things easier for you, here’s what you need to know:

Positive affirmations are phrases you repeat to yourself over and over again until they become beliefs that you have true confidence in.

These can do wonders if they are used correctly.

While there are numerous positive affirmations to manifest an hourglass body online, it could be helpful to write your own.

According to Bright Space Coaching, if you want to create a positive affirmation or a mantra, you have to follow the next steps:

  • Start with “I”
  • Begin with the end in mind
  • Keep it present
  • Use a motivating adjective or verb
  • Be positive
  • Be concise

For example, if you’d like to manifest an hourglass body, you could say:

… I have an hourglass-shaped body.

… My body is perfectly shaped.

… I have curves in all the right places.

… My stomach is flat and my hips are wide.

… I’m an attractive woman with a thin waist.

… I have a thin waist and wide hips.

So, if you’re serious about wanting to improve your figure, write your own positive affirmations or mantras for better results.

6) Use a manifestation technique that targets your subconscious mind

Want to know another great tip to manifest an hourglass body?

Use a manifestation technique that targets your subconscious mind, such as subliminal messages.

A writer at Medium explains it:

“While other laws of attraction techniques focus on the conscious mind, subliminal messages target the subconscious mind by sending messages straight to it.”

In other words, if you really want to manifest an hourglass body, you should add subliminal messages to your manifestation techniques.

What types of subliminal messages?

While there are many types of subliminal messages, auditory subliminals tend to work best because you can listen to them while you sleep.

As you probably know, your subconscious mind is more active when you sleep. So, if you allow yourself to listen to subliminal audio recordings while you’re asleep, they will get more access to your subconscious mind and will make it easier for them to work.

If you’d like to use subliminal messages, you can either search for them online or make your own. In this regard, there are numerous apps that allow you to convert your own positive affirmations into subliminal messages that you can listen to while you sleep.

7) Learn how to handle your negative thoughts

Do you still want to manifest an hourglass body?

If you do, then you need to learn how to handle your negative thoughts.


Although your general thinking pattern could be positive, there are always times when doubt and negative thoughts creep in.

If you don’t know how to handle them, your mind will focus on negative thoughts and you will have a negative outcome.

But here’s the good news:

You can change the way you handle your negative thoughts.

Roxie Nafousi shares her thoughts on this:

“We must commit to consistent practice and repeatedly choose to nourish our mind by replacing the negative thoughts with empowering ones.”

Simply put, you have to be honest with yourself and challenge all the negative thoughts you get, no matter how they make you feel.

When you do this, you’ll slowly program your mind to think in a positive way about your goal.

Here’s a good example of how you can handle negative thoughts:

Negative thought: I’m never gonna lose all this weight.

Positive thought: I am already seeing results.

So, whenever you feel like you’re never gonna get there, ask yourself: “What are the results I have right now?”

If you focus on positive results and don’t allow negative thoughts to take over your mind, it’s very likely that you will manifest an hourglass body.

8) Give your mind and body a boost with a healthy diet and exercise

Listen, if you want to have an hourglass body, you can definitely manifest it. But, what if you could speed up the process?

In addition to doing everything it takes to manifest the ideal body shape for you, you could include a healthy diet and exercise in your routine.

If you want to achieve results faster, try to replace processed foods and fast food with more fresh foods and whole foods.

More specifically, try to eat fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, eggs, nuts, fish, low-fat dairy products, and so on.

In addition, it could be helpful too to do some more physical activities.

While there are numerous exercises designed to help shape your body, a couple of them could make all the difference.

More specifically, cardio and weight training could help you burn fat, increase your metabolism, and help you build the muscles you need for an hourglass figure.

So, if you want to speed up the process of manifesting your ideal figure, be sure to include a healthy diet and exercise in your routine.

By doing this, you not only improve your health, but you will also improve the way your body looks.

9) Manifesting an hourglass body is a journey – embrace it

The last tip to manifest an hourglass body is to embrace the journey.

Here’s why:

If you expect to have an hourglass figure in one day, you’re not going to get there.

Instead, you have to be patient and work on it slowly.

Having patience and working on your goal slowly and consistently is a necessity if you want to achieve it.

While manifesting an hourglass body is doable, it won’t happen overnight. It’s a journey, and, as such, it needs time to take shape.

So, if you’re serious about manifesting an hourglass body, embrace the journey and be patient with yourself.

As long as you do this, it shouldn’t be hard for you to have an hourglass body one day.

However, it would be helpful if you could think of an exact date by which you want to manifest an hourglass body.

But, when you think about this, make sure to be realistic. For example, if you’re not really in shape and you have to lose weight as well, you probably can’t manifest an hourglass body in 30 days.

You can, however, work hard and set a more realistic deadline to have an hourglass figure.


Manifesting an hourglass body is possible if you follow the tips above. But, if you want to achieve a goal, you need to do more than just follow the tips.

You also have to be sure that your goals are realistic. Otherwise, your efforts won’t make much of a difference.

However, if you’re serious about manifesting an hourglass figure and are willing to give it all you got, you can definitely do it.
