Do you deeply desire something in your life?

Are you secretly waiting for it? Or are you looking to try to make it happen more proactively?

“Speaking things into existence” is a methodology to focus on manifesting an idealized reality.

It’s more than just repeating a mantra or intention each day.

In case you aren’t familiar, there are some key elements that can help this process become more effective.

I’ve compiled a list of the top secrets to speaking things into existence and added sage advice from Dr. Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., who specializes in the relationship between life and the deep desires of the subconscious mind.

In case you aren’t familiar, Dr. Lipton is a stem cell biologist and author of The Biology of Belief, and an international leader who bridges science and spirit and has much insight to share. Let’s jump right in.

1) Know thyself

“The character of our life is based upon how we perceive it.” (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

Before you even begin to “speak things into existence”, in order to manifest what you want in life, you must first have a clear idea of who you are and what you truly need.

This deep level of self-knowledge is a necessary element to help you have a clear perception.

It can be very easy to get overwhelmed by all the sensations and temptations out there. For example, you might think you want endless resources and pleasures, such as the biggest of homes, the fastest of cars, and the most decadent of foods.

Instead, when you truly know yourself, you can tune into your deepest needs. And find a way to live very naturally, and attuned to your true essence.

We can randomly wish for things to change in our lives, or for certain opportunities to present themselves, but if we don’t know what rests at the core of our essence and what we truly need, these wishes will be frivolous and wasted.

In order to best “speak something into existence”, it has to come from a deep place of clarity within.

As Bruce Lipton reminds us, the link between our subconscious mind and the conscious mind is possible but also a profound mystery. The more we can tune into our deep subconscious desires and let those come through, the more truly we can begin to speak from our inner essence and bring that forth into our everyday lives.

Otherwise, you may “speak something into existence” that would be wasted, or mismatched and doesn’t properly align with your authentic self.

2) Be ready

“Humans are more dependent on learning for survival than other species. We have no instincts that automatically find us food and shelter!” (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

For you to speak something into existence, it is necessary to prepare yourself and be ready for the dream to manifest.

This might sound rather obvious, but some ideas of success can be surprising.

For example, having a vast amount of wealth can come with its own stresses. You have to deal with feelings of jealousy, and envy, understand how to manage and maximize your assets, protect them, and find ways to make them grow and become something that gives you satisfaction and pleasure. There are complex issues that arise with being wealthy. So, if this is a dream that you wish to manifest, you can prepare yourself more readily by discussing what the reality of it means to people who are going through it.

Another way to think about it is to imagine a sea of people that are chasing the same dream. Some may take active steps to prepare themselves mentally, physically, or emotionally for the dream to manifest. That means that when the opportunity strikes, they are more prepared and able to recognize it and take it on compared to someone who is idealizing a change and waiting for it to happen.

Can you see yourself living your dream?

Can you feel what issues it will bring up?

Can you see what area you would be strong in?

Can you see what you need to work on in yourself to get to that state of reality?

If you live like the dream is already going to happen, you are more likely to take steps in that direction and mentally help you prepare for the dream to manifest.

This focused direction and inquisitive disposition will ultimately make you closer to integrating your dreams into reality when they do manifest.

3) Learn more

“Your perspective is always limited by how much you know. Expand your knowledge and you will transform your mind.” (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

When you want to manifest something into your life, it’s important to understand it deeply and learn about as much of it as you can.

In other words, surround yourself with the passion and vision that you want to speak into existence.

The more you learn about something, the more you will be discussing it with others and discovering how other people describe and think about it.

In this manner, you will naturally attract and pull things related to your dream closer to you.

For example, I have a secret desire to live on a sailboat, but I must confess that I haven’t sailed in my life.

Now, imagine I wait around for a friend or a special partner or magical fairy to present me with the chance to go on a sailboat and take off into the sunset.

My dream might manifest, but I’ll have no idea what to do with it.

Rather, if I dive into my obsession with sailing and surround myself with people and resources who can help me try it, learn about it, and assist me on my journey, I’ll already be in the world that I wish to manifest and it will be far more likely that I’ll encounter someone who might want to sell their boat at a great price or offer me a chance to sail.

If I start to take a course, read about it, and get involved in the sailing community, I am more likely to live aspects of my dream with all the potential for it to grow into more opportunities.

I will also start to understand more of what this dream means. I will ask questions about it and learn what can work the best in my situation, like the surprising need to master fixing an engine and backup machinery for when there is no wind.

These kinds of active discussions and learning will bring you closer to your dream than passively waiting for it to happen and imagining it to be a certain way.

So, as Lipton reminds us, the more you learn about something, the more you will change your mindset and, in turn, help manifests your dream into reality.

4) Make intentional choices

“You know why it’s hard to be happy—it’s because we refuse to LET GO of the things that make us sad.”

(Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

To manifest that which you desire, it is important that you choose a path or process in your life and actively chose things that will bring you closer to that direction.

Perhaps this sounds like simple advice, but it’s hard for us to make changes.

It takes a change in focus, ambition, and a great deal of courage.

For example, imagine you want to set some fitness goals for yourself, so you choose to run a marathon.

Ideally, you want to maximize your results and have a plan set up for training to help you to reach your goal.

If you don’t train, the preparation will be much easier and probably enjoyable, but you will experience a more difficult race day.

So speaking something into existence is also considering how you will choose your dream, every day, as a target.

You can’t just think about it. You have to actively do things to reach it.

If you float around or chose things that take you away from the things that you ultimately wish to manifest, you are making it more challenging for your dreams to come into existence.

The thing with changing your mindset is that it doesn’t have to all be in a state of positive thinking all the time. It just means stepping in the direction of your dreams every day. And trust me, this process can be hard at first.

I learned this from the shaman Rudá Iandé. With over three decades of experience in challenging people to take on their dreams, he’s seen it all. And he’ll know exactly how we tend to sabotage ourselves along the way. Rudá’s free video points out a surprising range of common, toxic approaches to personal development.

Rather than tell you how you should live your life, Rudá puts the power back to you to make your reality align with your dreams.

He reminds you to tune into your innate wisdom and power. Your inner compass or intuition will help you judge which choices are the best to help you manifest what you truly desire.

There’s no telling exactly how the thing that you are trying to manifest will find its way into your life, but when you feel like you are instinctively on the right trajectory, keep choosing with that confidence. And make sure that comes from your voice, not someone else’s.

4) Trust

As Bruce Lipton explains, “The universe is the outcome of a creative, conscious mind. It’s not a mechanism. It’s not just physical stuff that is moving through time and space.”

If you want to manifest something specific into your life, it is essential that you first place trust in the universe that it will provide for your needs.

Then you simply need to be patient as it unfolds in its own perfect timing.

This doesn’t mean that you stop living your life or working because you believe that something else will come. Instead, it means that you keep on your path and realize that you are not in control of the outcome.

Trust means that you realize that there is a multitude of factors that can come into play in this world that you aren’t aware of.

Trust means that you are open to allowing a possibility to present itself in a way that you can engage with and learn from.

Trust doesn’t mean blindly waiting or passively hoping for something to come forth.

You can put your intention out to the universe, but you can’t control how it will reveal itself. That is just a fact of reality. So trust that it is possible.

An element of trust and relinquishing a sense of control is a quality that will help you to stay more aligned with the true nature of reality and less distracted by your expectations of what it should be.

5) Keep your mind focused

“I was exhilarated by the new realization that I could change the character of my life by changing my beliefs. I was instantly energized because I realized that there was a science-based path that would take me from my job as a perennial “victim” to my new position as “co-creator” of my destiny. (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

To speak something into existence, you have to keep your mind focused. This takes a great deal of dedication and commitment.

For example, suppose you dream of being a parent one day, and you think of the ideal mate, how you would like to raise your children and the experiences and legacy that you would like to pass on to them.

You can envision yourself being a confident and meaningful parent. But in the flash of a moment, you can also start to spiral into a downward pit of fear and anxiety for the unknown.

You might start to doubt your abilities in relating to your children or taking on this high level of responsibility.

So, very quickly, the same dream that you are manifesting can have two very different expressions.

That’s why it’s important to keep your dream a friendly one.

As Lipton reminds us, just as your positive thoughts can help you embrace a new outlook on life, so can your negative thoughts pull you into a rut of despair.

Inherent in the notion of free will is that it is a responsibility to choose which experiences and mindset we have in our lives and learn from them.

If we choose to hold negative beliefs about ourselves or others, we’re letting those beliefs control our day-to-day experience and this can hold us back from manifesting the life of our dreams.

And if we choose to stay true to the moment and what is actually happening around us, then we are more likely to have the right perception of the situation we are in.

6) Consider your environment

“Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that.” (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

To manifest an idea or desire, one must also consider the space and environment that they interact with.

According to Lipton, one of the single most determining factors of our experience is the environment in which we surround ourselves. Even as a cell biologist who was observing genes being clones, Lipton was taken aback by how much gene expression was affected by its environment.

For example, two identical stem cells can be placed in different environments and one can be expressed as a muscle cell while the other is expressed as a neuron, by the conditions of its environment.

He reminds us that your state of mind can significantly affect your biological environment.

For example, imagine you just encouraged a dangerous cougar on your walk. Your body becomes flooded with a state of fear and you release all sorts of stress signals in response. This response will impact your complete system.

Following this thought process, we can speak something into existence, but not place the opportunity into an environment that would encourage its success.

We usually don’t want to plant our idealized dreams in a haven of stress and terror and regret.

So have you looked into your general state of being?

How do you feel most of the time?

Have you thought about your physical surroundings? What is the state of it?

Is it peaceful or inspiring? Is it clean and well organized?

What about the conversations you have and the company that you keep? How do you treat others around you?

You can wish for something to manifest, and give it a chance to thrive by considering what is around you by taking a closer look at how you engage with and interact with the world around you.

7) Meditate and Inquire

“When you’re stressed or fearful, sitting in meditation is a way of dropping into deeper awareness so you can see the difference between where you are and where you want to be.” (Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief)

The practice of mediation is a method to help you speak things into existence at a very deep level, in the realm of past thoughts.

Taking on a meditative practice can help you become more aware of the functioning of your subconscious mind. The more you can foster this expression and connection, the more likely you can tune into your deepest desires to have them manifest.

It might feel challenging to take on a meditation practice. But remember it’s about simply finding a space to be still and quiet watching the state of your conscious mind.

There are numerous techniques for mediation and self-inquiry that are related to sound and speech.

For example, some focus on using sound exposure from crystal bowls or gongs, while others use a specific string of words in mantra chanting. There are also intentions that you deeply contemplate in your mind.

Other meditative practices focus on the essence of speech, the breath, or the thoughts that arise before we even speak them, all of which help aspects of the subconscious to reveal themselves to our conscious mind.

With exposure to meditative techniques, the subconscious mind is given a chance to work through its processes and responses, allowing it to learn and become more self-aware.

In this way, you can let your mind become clearer and then begin looking at the thoughts, feelings, or images that arise and get to know the nature of your mind.

When you get the capacity to quiet yourself down, it allows the non-physical aspect of yourself, which tends to be more creative and fulfilling ways of expressing itself, to take charge of your ideas and steer you in more positive directions.

Finding your true voice

As you start to look into different ways to help you more effectively speak things into existence, it’s important to keep in mind that this process of learning can be rather new and challenging.

However, it is a process that will yield more meaning as long as you’re willing to approach it with a positive outlook and be willing to change your existing beliefs.

This is the part that blocks most of us.

It’s difficult to change our fundamental beliefs because most of us aren’t even aware of them.

The more you heighten your level of awareness and tune into the state of your perception, the more you can simultaneously alter your reality.

The way I see it is that you have two paths in front of you.

You can either allow yourself to respond to your senses and the stimuli around you, or you can conquer those desires and be in a control of your destiny.

In other words, you can decide how you want to perceive the world around you, and in doing so alter your life, by starting some of the tactics to actively speak it into existence.

The more you engage with the way you want to perceive your life, the more you will start to create the very reality that you desire to step into.

I’ve learned over the last few years that the biggest factor in whether or not something manifests our attitude towards it.

If you are mildly interested or even mildly discouraged, you will tend to attract more of that element in your life. Similarly, the more interested and motivated you are the more likely it is to manifest.

This approach makes explaining how to manifest what we want into words so important.

Fundamentally we need to get down to the core of what we believe and recreate that reality to align with our dreams.

You see, so much of what we believe about the world around us is something that was told to us by the people around us. We took it on because it worked in our model of thinking.

We can reshape our beliefs to create a fulfilling and meaningful life.

As we remove the multiple layers of thick social conditioning that our parents and teachers put onto us, the limits to what we can create are boundless.

I learned about how to tap into this perception change from the world-renowned shaman Rudá Iandé. In his excellent free video, Rudá explains how you can break through mental barriers and get back to the core of your essence.

He challenges you to look at yourself in a way you have never before so that you can start to understand what your dreams really mean to you.

Here’s a link to the free video again.

The more you understand what is it that you really want in life, the better you will be able to answer it.

Some would remind us that questioning is the very way of knowing, not coming by the answer or solution.

We have been given the gift of language and we can use this gift to create a new reality for ourselves with our thoughts and speech.

As long as we keep going down the same path, in the same direction with our thinking, choices, and interactions, we will most likely get the same results over and over again.

So why not try something new and expand your way of thinking and in turn, the reality that you can create for yourself?

The key is to get you past what we are normally used to thinking and start learning to expand that thought process.

It starts by learning how to tap into your subconscious mind.

As long as you continue tapping into the familiar, you will tend to stay in the cycle of not achieving what you want out of life.

Take this step for yourself and let your mind create a new reality for you that allows you to live with more freedom, fulfillment, and meaning than ever before.

Enjoy the process.
