Feeling stuck with your manifestation efforts? You’re not alone. Many people find themselves in a similar rut, experiencing only sporadic wins or none at all. But what if you could change that? That’s exactly what this 30-day challenge aims to do, and it’s the very strategy that helped me turn my life around using the power of manifestation.
This challenge is about manifesting general improvement, rather than focusing on one particular outcome. As we’ll see later on, this can be a much more effective approach for beginners.
Here’s how it works: For the next 30 days, you’ll engage in a meditation exercise where you imagine broad concepts like “achievement,” “joy,” or “freedom.” No specific outcomes allowed! You’re putting your subconscious in the driver’s seat, letting it work its magic and guide the changes in your life.
This challenge has the potential to make big and permanent alterations in your life. This includes aspects and ways you perhaps haven’t considered. Moreover, succeeding in this challenge will improve your overall manifestation ability, setting you up for further success in the future.
This 30-day challenge is a great way to get over that first dry period where nothing seems to work. It will give you real first-hand experience with manifestation and make it a practical reality to you rather than a hopeful idea. So, if you are ready to commit to this challenge, let’s get started.
Understanding The Challenge
The challenge presented in this article is mainly aimed at helping people who are stuck with manifesting or stuck with life in general, but it will, of course, also work for those who are already doing well.
Many people keep struggling with manifesting, and most people never get any results at all. No matter how hard they try, they just can’t seem to make it work. Maybe they’ve manifested some small things, but overall, no real results have come of it. The reason for this failure comes from the fact that they never manage to change their state of consciousness.
Based on the principle of manifesting, everything in your world is the result of your state of consciousness. If you’re stuck, it’s because there’s an error or a contrary idea held within the subconscious keeping you where you are. Your subconscious state not only affects your behavior, but it also directly causes the events, opportunities, circumstances, ”luck,” that appear in your external world. So, to manifest something, whatever it may be, requires a change in state of consciousness. A big course of failure comes from focusing too much on the result and not enough on the root cause, which is the underlying state giving rise to the results.
The idea with this challenge is both to go broad/general and focus on your “self” rather than the external happenings. This has the potential to make far-reaching upgrades in your subconscious that will turn the whole ship around and open an inflow of improvements and changes in your life. For example, if you feel that you’re ”unsuccessful,” you could focus on developing a general state of ”success.” Having developed this state would automatically cause an inflow of new manifestations aligning with this new state of success. I will talk more about this in the next section.
The Power of Broad Manifestations
Before we dive into the exercise for this 30-day challenge, I want to talk a bit more about the power of broad/general manifestations and why they are often better (especially for those struggling).
Instead of setting your goal on something that is outcome-specific, like ”being a millionaire,” try and impress a broad underlying subconscious state such as ”I am successful,” ”I am wealthy,” or ”My life is one of accomplishment.”
Think of your subconscious like a river. Sure, the occasional ripple or wave might go against the river, but in the end, all water follows the direction of the stream.
Maybe your goal is to get in a relationship. Instead of focusing on ”getting in a relationship,” focus on a general state of ”being loved.” If you feel that ”I am unlovable,” then ”getting into a relationship” will be hard. You cannot be ”unlovable” and have a loving relationship at the same time. Changing the broader state will give a solid ground for the specific outcome to grow. This is also why people who are already wealthy have an easy time getting more money.
Maybe you want to pursue a certain career-related goal. Instead of focusing on achieving the particular goal, focus on the state of ”success” or ”accomplishment.” This will lay the groundwork for the particular goal because it’s no doubt easier to achieve your goal if your state of consciousness is one of “success” and “accomplishment.”
Maybe you just feel stuck in life. Instead of trying to ”get out” by achieving a particular goal, focus on the state of ”freedom,” ”joy,” ”happiness,” ” fulfillment,” ”success,” or whatever you feel best resonates with you.
If your inner state becomes one of ” I often succeed” rather than ” I often fail,” then everything will flow from there, as if you have opened a new floodgate. The subconscious will rearrange things, big and small, to reflect that state. Since the subconscious is the deeper self, you may even manifest things and improvements that are even better than you could have imagined.
Another important point is that focusing on a broad state rather than a specific outcome stops you from ”messing with the middle.” You allow the deeper intelligence to do the work without having your intellect get in the way by trying to WILL things into being. The subconscious will do things at a level beyond the conscious mind.
Broad manifestations are not only easier for beginners, but since, by their very nature, make you hand over the toils to a deeper intelligence within you, things may improve in a way in unforeseen ways.
[I talk more about specific vs broad manifestations in this article.]
The Benefits of This Challenge
Let me quickly sketch out some of the potential results you can get if this challenge ends up working for you.
1. If you choose to impress the idea of ”accomplishment” on your subconscious, every aspect of your life will elevate itself to align with this new state. The scale of results will depend on how drastic the change in your state of consciousness is.
2. Impressing big positive ideas on the subconscious, such as ”success” or ”accomplishment,” will make it easier for your to manifest other stuff in the future. For example, if your current subconscious state currently says,”I am a loser,” then how is any goal or desire you want ever going to set root?
3. You will see the manifesting works. The challenge is built so that it keeps your focus on the within. If this challenge succeeds at moving you into a new state of consciousness, new results are bound to manifest in your life. Experiencing your life improve first-hand is a great way to gain faith and confidence.
The Subconscious And The Conscious
An important point to remember before you begin doing that actual exercise is that the work is to be done by the subconscious mind – not the conscious mind. This means that you must use the least amount of effort and willpower (I talk more about this in [link: my article on ”reversed effort”]). These are faculties of the conscious mind and often serve as a barrier to the subconscious.
If the subconscious accepts a new idea, then that idea will be executed independently of the will and the intellect.
The difference between your current life and the life you want comes from your subconscious state of consciousness, but it’s important to remember that it is a SUBCONSCIOUS state as it is the subconscious mind that is the controlling influence of your reality.
Permeating your mind completely with the idea of ”accomplishment,” for example, will cause the subconscious to undertake this state and manifest it as corresponding results, both through your own mind, behavior, actions, and perspectives, but also directly in your external world in the form of opportunities, events, circumstances, ”luck,” and so on.
The exercise below should feel easy and enjoyable. If you are able to hold the idea with a sense of ease and effortlessness, and if it’s enjoyable, then there’s a good chance you are doing it correctly. Permeate your mind with the state of ”accomplishment” to the extent that all other thoughts of doubt are excluded. This is what makes the idea float into the subconscious. Your job is to put focus on the particular state; you cannot use willpower to get the subconscious to accept an idea.
The purpose of the exercise is to impress new ideas in the SUBCONSCIOUS part of you. Manifesting is not about using bending the world with your will.
Preparing For The Challenge
Before you embark on this 30-day manifestation challenge, it’s important to prepare your mind and set the right expectations.
- Setting Expectations: It’s essential to understand that manifestation isn’t a magic trick or a quick fix. Remember, this is about changing your state of consciousness. The results are secondary. You may only get small results in the beginning, but they will grow over time.
- Choosing Your Broad Manifestation: Decide on a broad concept that resonates with you, such as “accomplishment,” “success,” “happiness,” ”love,” ”freedom,” ”inner peace,” ”joy,” ” friendship,” ”meaning,” ”greatness,” or whatever it may be. Remember, the aim here is to alter your overall subconscious state rather than focusing on a specific outcome.
- Creating Space for Change: If, for example, you think of yourself as a ”failure,” try and distance yourself from it by recognizing that it’s simply a thought within you. Even if you’re actually a failure, understand that it’s still only a belief.
- Establishing a Routine: Consistency is key when it comes to manifestation. This exercise should be done three times a day; one longer session and two shorter ones.
- Commitment: Stick to the challenge for the full 30 days. Just because you don’t see results within the 30 days, or even after, do not get discouraged. There still might be an invisible seed taking root, which will show its fruits in the future. It’s not a contest or a race against time.
The Exercise – Do This For 30 Days
I want you to do this exercise at least once a day, preferably at night before bed, for at least 30 days.
It’s best if you do not focus on getting an outcome. Just focus on doing the exercise for the sake of doing them without being too concerned if it’s working. Constantly trying to measure the progress and getting discouraged when you don’t see any is counter-productive. Things may be happening below the surface of your consciousness.
At worst, you will have wasted 15 minutes for 30 days, and at best, you will have made big changes in your subconscious, and thus huge results will appear.
So, let’s now look at the exercise.
Step 1: Meditation
The first step in this exercise is going into meditation. The only way to learn how to meditate is by doing it yourself.
If the word meditation sounds scary to you, just think of it as sitting (or laying) down, closing your eyes, and withdrawing your attention from without.
As a general rule, the deeper you go, the more in touch you will get with the subconscious. Think of the subconscious as a tide. As you shut down the conscious faculties, the tide of the subconscious rises to the surface.
When the tide of the subconscious is high, it can, in my experience, sometimes feel that you are in the presence of a separate power or energy. In my view, this the your “aware-ness”; the observer within you is ”aware of” your experiences. This power, no longer blocked by the barrier of the conscious mind, is responsive to suggestion and is open to the acceptance of new ideas.
You don’t need to meditate ”perfectly” to get results. Simply just closing your eyes and centering yourself is good, even if you feel that you aren’t meditating. That being said, as you become more proficient at meditation, you will have sessions where it feels like you’re going deeper than others, which is a good thing. Don’t force this, however. Again, this exercise should feel easy and restful and be an enjoyable process.
As a side note, if you have trouble focusing, you can use things such as binaural beats or similar. Although sound is a helpful tool, I do, however, suggest that you also take time to meditate in complete silence without the aid of sound, to be used.
Step 2: Impressing The Subconscious
Once in a state of meditation, the subconscious is open and responsive to suggestions.
While you definitely can use things such as visualization, I will explain how to use affirmations as it’s the easiest. You can always develop your own version of this technique.
Priming: When in this state, start by affirming something like ”every suggestion will now be deeply ingrained and embedded in my subconscious” or something of that nature. The purpose of this is to prime your subconscious making it more receptive.
In the same manner, after you have repeated your affirmations regarding your desire, say something like ”These ideas are now a deeply ingrained part of my being and will be executed no matter what I do or think in my conscious mind.”
Affirmations: Start affirming the broad state you have chosen. Let’s assume that you feel you are sort of stuck in life and that you want more ”success.”
You could simply just repeat the word ”success” or ”accomplishment” over and over, with the underlying intention that this is going to be a characteristic of your life.
You can say longer affirmations, like ”I am successful,” ”I continually accomplish things, one after the other,” and so on.
You can also simply talk to the subconscious as if it were a separate entity, and say something like ” This is what I want you to do…” The subconscious is not an input-output machine, but more like an intelligent and responsive power, your own “beingness” and awareness.
It’s important to make affirmations that feel natural and resonate with you. You don’t HAVE to robotically repeat an affirmation over and over again. You are simply just conveying ideas to the subconscious.
Also, try and feel yourself into the idea of ”success” for example, by adding emotion. Feel the joy and the happiness of it. Make it part of your being. Emotion is a good way to immerse yourself into the idea.
Effortlessness: Again, as stated before, it’s important not to use effort. Do not overthink this. You cannot have the intellect do the work, but the subconscious itself. You cannot force the subconscious to accept an idea, you can only convey a suggestion to it. Just because you don’t feel anything, doesn’t mean the subconscious isn’t assimilating the thoughts. Likewise, if you ask a friend for a favor, you don’t think their thoughts for them.
Remember that above all else, this should be easy and enjoyable. If you use effort and call upon the will, or try and over-analyze what you’re doing, you reawaken the barriers of the conscious mind.
Focus: When you think ”success,” for example, do not simultaneously think ”I can’t.” Your focus should be occupied by the particular desire, to the exclusion of other doubtful and contrary thoughts.
You cannot really think two thoughts at the same time. If your mind is completely focused on ”success” you cannot think of ”failure” at the same time.
Step 3: Surrender and Release
After doing the above, awakening from your meditative state, simply just let it go. Imagine that you’ve planted a seed in the ground of the subconscious. It’s now out of your hands, and the ground (your subconscious) will nourish it and make it grow it.
Release any expectations you may have about the outcome. You’ve done your part; the rest is up to the subconscious. This step is crucial as it allows your mind to let go of any resistance and opens the space for your new state of consciousness to take root. Resistance will only keep you clinging to negative ideas of doubt, fear, and worry.
The Post-Challenge Phase
After the challenge is complete, what next?
Assessment: Assess the changes in your life. You may not have manifested a million dollars, but do you notice that your life is filled with more accomplishment, success, or joy? Have there been any changes? Maybe you’ve managed to make big changes in your subconscious, and things are changing drastically. Remember, if ”success” is now a part of your subconscious state, then this will be a permanent and reoccurring quality of your life. Maybe you don’t notice any improvements. This is fine too. No matter what, do not get discouraged. Discouragement will only undo any changes you may have made. This 30-day challenge, even if you don’t notice results, may still have planted important seeds in your subconscious that will show themselves in the future. Even just feeling more ”successful,” if that was your goal or that success is possible, is a good thing.
Repeat or Change: If you feel that you’ve made progress, you may want to repeat the challenge with the same broad manifestation. It often happens, when we manifest, that the ideas we implanted in the subconscious seem to slip away again over time, and thus the results we have gotten go away too. It may be a good idea, especially if you feel you are ”not quite there, you,” to continue with this exercise.
The beauty of this 30-day broad manifestation challenge lies in its simplicity and potential for big and unexpected change. Unlike many manifestation exercises that focus on specific outcomes, this challenge allows your subconscious to make changes on its own account without you getting in your own way.
This challenge is designed to help you become more in tune with your subconscious, alter your state of consciousness, and improve your manifesting ability. By focusing on a broad state rather than a specific outcome, you’re allowing your subconscious to do the heavy lifting, and opening the door to unforeseen improvements in your life.
Remember, the journey of manifestation is about growth and transformation, not just getting things. It’s about becoming the best version of yourself and enjoying the process of creation. Even if you don’t see any results, it may still be that some vital change has been made in the subconscious. As you embark on this 30-day broad manifestation challenge, may you uncover the hidden power of manifestation within you, and create the life you truly desire.
The important thing is to actually do the challenge. It really is the inner mental work that counts, and not how much knowledge you’ve gathered.
