In most post-modern spiritual movements the Universal Law of Attraction is a widely known principle. The idea of leveraging this law to achieve goals is a commonplace discussion in many circles. There is also a repository of information related to this topic available online, with directives on how to successfully practice manifestation.
Even with this vast amount of information, many individuals misuse the Law, because of a lack of understanding. Individuals can experience common, yet avoidable pitfalls related to their manifestation practice, and therefore become frustrated and give up before they accomplish their goals. This is especially true with individuals desiring to attain better experiences in their love lives.

Some of the most common pitfalls projecting manifestations into the future include: identifying an individual as the goal of the manifestation; a lack of focused time in manifestation leading to an overindulgence in fantasy; and a lack of integrating gratitude into the manifestation practice.
Below is a two-part manifestation prescription for people wanting a better love life. This is appropriate for individuals desiring a new relationship, as well as for people wanting to have a better relationship with their current partner.
If you want to make manifestation an actual practice in your life, it is important to have a strict discipline related to the goals you want to accomplish. It is important to set a time limit for a manifestation practice. If you are practicing manifestation 24 hours a day, it is likely that you have lost touch with reality. This is not a manifestation practice; it is living in fantasy.
Consciousness, and being present, is imperative for the manifestation process. Using the Law of Attraction incorporates an invisible reality into form. If you are spending most or all of your life in fantasy, you are likely detached from form and there is no place for the desired outcome to become evident.
A daily practice should be for at least five minutes, but no more than ten. It is important to start out by centering and then continue to the visualization practice.
Centering simply means becoming present within the environment surrounding you, and becoming present internally by shutting off internal dialogues inconsistent with the focused goal.

Visualization tends to work best with the eyes closed; however, you should do what feels most comfortable. The next step is to visualize the perfect relationship.
Through the visualization process you are answering basic questions. “What is he or she like? What does he or she look like? What kinds of interactions do I regularly have with him or her?” This list could go on forever, but the underlining idea is that you eventually should reach a point where the image in the visualization is your absolute ideal relationship. This is not necessarily physical attributes; you can visualize certain activities or interactions that would fulfill your desired outcome.
It is important to allow these visualization periods to be a present moment experience. Visualizations projected out into the future usually manifest very slowly, if at all. For maximum benefit the visualization must be experienced as if it were happening right now. Practitioners who project their intention into the future will get exactly that – the potential will always remain until the individual is willing and able to bring these experiences into the present moment.
The biggest pitfall for individuals practicing the Law of Attraction comes for those people who already have an object of attraction or affection. They have an ex-partner they want to get back together with, or a friend they want to date. In this situation the best thing to do is not even consider the object of your affection or attraction during the practice.
If acquiring an image of an individual is necessary for your manifestation process, you may consider choosing someone who represents an ideal archetype. For example, visualize a character from a movie, book, or other setting. The idea is not to make the visualization more obscure, but to keep the object of your current attraction or affection out of the picture.

People just starting this practice may ask, “Why shouldn’t I focus on the object of my desire? I love him or her.” That is likely very true; however, if there is not already a connection, there are potential negative emotions attached because of the current separation from the object of your attraction or desire. Whether it is separation issues, dysfunction in the relationship, or just disagreement, the vibrational energy associated with that person may not be conducive to upgrading the current vibration in your experience.
If you cannot keep from focusing on the object of your attraction or affection, you will likely recreate the undesired results over and over again, simply because you could not separate yourself from the existing energy associated with your current manifested experience. Even if only for five to ten minutes.
On the other hand people who can adopt this practice normally manifest very quickly. This is because they have aligned their vibrational frequency of their desire with a connection, rather than a separation, and have transcended the issues of the past.
The second part of a manifestation prescription is gratitude. Practitioners who successfully manifest their desires as a lifestyle tend to have an overall attitude of gratitude. When starting a practice, successful manifestation can be difficult to obtain if you are not already aligned with an attitude of gratitude.
To get started it is important to take a few minutes each day to do an assessment of the day and find situational experiences to be grateful for. It does not have to be big situations, but it does have to be real situations.
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~ William A. Ward
When getting started, it is normal for individuals to have gratitude for more generalized experiences such as: “I am grateful for my breath, the food on my table, a roof over my head, a warm bed to sleep on,” and so forth. These are wonderful things to be grateful for. It is recommended for you to look at these things first and express gratitude, especially if you have lived a life without expressing adequate gratefulness for these basic things.
However, the above examples are not necessarily situational expressions of gratitude. Unless you have such horrible asthma that you need a rescue inhaler several times throughout the day, have been hungry for a significant period, or homeless and living on the street, these are everyday things rather than unique situational experiences.
However, you should not spend more than one or two weeks grateful for these things as your primary attitude of gratitude. Focusing on these things when launching your appreciation consciousness will likely be such that it will identify more situational opportunities for gratitude.
So, you may ask, “Why gratitude?” Situational gratitude does two things. First, it raises awareness. Many times individuals are stuck in negative cycles simply because they are not aware of the good things already existent in their lives. Second, situational gratitude will give you an expectation for a better future.
It is more important that you tie your attitude of gratitude and your manifestation practice together. It is imperative that gratitude is practiced first, before it is integrated into the manifestation practice. You need to know how gratitude feels, in order to use it successfully as a tool in the manifestation process.
Once you have integrated an attitude of gratitude fully into your daily conscious experience, you can begin to incorporate it into the visualization practice and be grateful for the relationship that you are seeing during the manifestation practice. This will empower the manifestations and put you on the fast track towards accomplishing the goal.
