Manifesting Your Wildest Dreams

Manifesting is sweeping through today’s youth. Thanks to TikTok, this method of using the “Law of Attraction” to bring whatever you wish into your life is being increasingly accepted by young people. The idea is that through willpower and positive thinking, you open yourself to new opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.


The “science” behind manifesting is that the world is made of energy. Believers think that with holding good vibrations, they attract good vibrations back into their life. It is said you must have the required positive energy in order for it to work. If you try to manifest without complete faith in gaining your preferred outcome, it won’t work.


Things that people manifest are better jobs, relationships, money, or just happiness. Junior Celina Westerberg says that she has “manifested things from my dad getting me a coffee, to significantly decreasing my depression and anxiety”. One popular one method of manifesting is the 3 6 9 method. Shortly, you write your manifestation statement down three times in the morning, six times in the afternoon, and nine times in the evening. There are other forms of manifesting, as demonstrated by junior Kianna Ghouchkhani, saying that “there are different things that charge your manifestation such as crystals, incense, sage, ect”. It is up to the individual to decide which method feels the most personable to them.


Whether manifestation works or not is up to you to decide, but one thing is certain. Reality is up to individual perception, and it is this faith in the universe that improves these young peoples’ lives and mental health. If anything, at least our economy is getting a boost from the curious teenagers dedicating themselves to creating their own reality.
