Manifesting is to cause something to appear or occur.
Why would we want to manifest something? In order to make it happen. There's something that we want, which we do not as of yet have, and that is the thing which we want to bring into our life. This "bringing it into our life" is the process we will be learning to do in this book.
What might we want to manifest? It could be a goal, or it could be material, like money, or could be a job doing a specific kind of work. Other examples could be a bigger house, a newer car, or new opportunities. Manifestation is one way of doing something about it on an energetic level to help bring it about.
Like energy healing, and using your own intuition, manifesting is a skill that we are all capable of doing. We have a relationship with the Universe of which we are a part. Learn it and try it. Notice the shifts. Repeat until you see that the results surpass "random chance". Let your own experience convince you that it works.
This book offers a simple, straight-forward approach to understanding and doing manifesting.
