Everything You Need to Know About Acting As If to Manifest Your Vision (+ free workbook!)
If you have ever read or heard anything about manifesting, then you have probably heard about the importance of acting as if. This is one of the key techniques to help you manifest anything you want much quicker and easier than you would think you are able to. Let’s talk about what this means, and how you can use it in your manifestation practices.
What Does it Mean to Act As If?
This is probably the easiest part! Acting as if is the idea that you behave as you have already manifested whatever it is you are trying to reach. For example, if you are manifesting becoming a full-time blogger, then you would act as you have already achieved that vision. You want to do everything that you would do as if you really were living that life.
Make Sure You Are Clear
For most manifestation techniques, you want to make sure that you are crystal clear on what you are trying to manifest. If you have ever experienced your manifestations not coming, then you were probably confused about what you actually wanted. If you want to be a full-time blogger, then you need to understand why you want that. Are you looking for financial stability? Do you want to be a well-known name in your industry? Are you trying to lift and support others in your community?
I have mentioned the importance of understanding your why in the past.

How Can You Act As If?
Ignore your current situation. Whatever is happening in your current life right now is not relevant to acting as if. Acting as if is something that may seem like you are lying to yourself, but you don’t have to look at it that way. For me, I look at it like it is an act, just like it this idea says it is. On the other hand, you can look at it like like you are lying to yourself if that is what works for you.
When you act as if, you choose to do things that you would do if you were already living the life you are trying to manifest. You want to think about what that version of you is wearing, what she thinks, what she is doing. These are all things that you want to make sure you are doing when you are acting as if.
If you are unsure how to act with your new manifestation, then you may want to look at those who are already living that life. Find creators, friends, or family who is living the life that you are manifesting. See what they do and try to incorporate those aspects into your life.
What if it Gets Hard?
Even if it gets hard, you need to continue to act as if. You have to remember that manifesting anything does not usually happen over night. Does that mean it cannot happen quickly or easily? No. The second that you think it is too hard or that things are going wrong, you are taking yourself out of the moment you have created for yourself.
Even if things change in your reality, you should be acting the same way. If a bill comes in the mail, you still have plenty of money to pay it off. Even if your partner is mean to you, they are still great and you love them. If you take yourself out of your As If world, then you basically threw all of the work and effort that you have ben doing out of the window.
We can control the world that we live in to an extent. For the parts that we cannot control, you can constantly pretend to be in that life, even if your current situation may not be the same. Make sure you are declaring the life you want for yourself, and just live that life. Ignoring what others may think or say.
Food For Thought
When you are imagining your manifestation, you need to realize that you are creating your dream life. You are telling yourself that whatever you want can be yours. The person, job, life you want is already out there waiting for you. You probably just are not an energetic match for it yet, but you can be. By raising your vibration through acting as if, you can find your dreams, and they will find you.
