In this article:

“Manifesting” is a big trend in the self-help and success industry. Because so many people actively try to practice manifesting strategies, it is important for practitioners to understand this belief system and its implications for our clients.
Manifesting involves activating the mind-body-spirit connection to bring desires into reality.
Adherents believe that by thinking positive thoughts and feeling positive emotions and by aligning personal energy with that of the universe, they can “manifest” their dreams.
