Debunking The Myths Around Manifestation | Evelina Hovich | Mindset Coaching

There’s a lot of information there about manifesting your dream life.

And as a result, there’s a lot of misinformation too.

As a manifestation coaching professional, I’ve heard it all.

And it’s kind of understandable, at least at first.

After all, many things seem foolish when you only examine them on the surface.

That’s why today, we’re going to take a look at some of the myths and misconceptions around manifesting your dream life.

We’ll look at each myth, talk about why it’s false, and then explore what the truth is.

Let’s take a look.

Myth #1: You Need To Think Happy Thoughts All The Time

If you want to manifest the life of your dreams, it’s important to recognize what that life looks like.

But regardless of who you are, it’s probably safe to assume that in your dream life, you’re happy.

And if you want to manifest the life of your dreams, it seems logical to start by making sure you’re feeling happy things and thinking happy thoughts all the time, right?


Why It’s False

As nice as it might seem to be happy all the time, that’s impossible.

We are human, and humans feel the range of human emotions.

This includes joy, elation, ecstasy, and all the fun stuff, but it also includes sadness, heartbreak, fear, anger, guilt, and more.

No matter who you are, no matter how charmed your life is, you will experience contrast and life challenges.

Pretending they’re not happening and trying to suppress the emotions that come along with them is unhealthy, unsustainable, and will only leave them to fester.

What’s The Truth?

Even when you’ve manifested the life of your dreams, you’ll still face adversity.

Contrast is inevitable, and in fact, is necessary.

So it’s important to understand how to face that adversity in a healthy way.

To understand, let’s look at the difference between practicing gratitude vs toxic positivity.

Toxic positivity tells you to put a positive spin on everything, all the time, even moments that are deeply traumatic.

The death of a loved one, the loss of your home in a natural disaster, or a serious injury or medical diagnosis, among other things, can all cause some intense feelings to come up.

Toxic positivity constantly pushes you to “look on the bright side”, but while it is possible to find positives to most situations, it is important to recognize what is real and present when facing adversity.

Gratitude can help you feel more grounded and focused, but it doesn’t prevent you from being honest with your feelings.

That’s not to say that looking on the bright side is a bad idea – far from it.

But trying to pretend negative feelings or events don’t exist isn’t going to help you manifest the life of your dreams.

Recognizing and acknowledging your feelings will help you shift them faster.

However, if you don’t and push them down, they won’t go away.

What we resist persists, and it’s true for our feelings too.

Feel what you feel, pay attention to how you respond to your feelings, and set aside time to work through your feelings.

Myth #2: You Just Have To Visualize What You Want And It Will Come To You

The way visualization is described, it almost seems like magic, doesn’t it?

Just close your eyes, visualize something happening, and it’ll happen, right?

Based on the headline above, you can probably guess where this is going.

Why It’s False

I don’t believe you should go to your garden and chant “there’s no weeds, there’s no weeds, there’s no weeds,” and think that’s going to solve something. I’m a believer in “find the weed and rip it out” – Tony Robbins

Fantasizing can be a part of your visualization practice, but that alone is not going to make things fall from the sky.

Consider manifesting more financial stability, for example.

We get into this a lot in my practice as a wealth and abundance coach.

Go ahead and visualize being financially independent – make a vision board, meditate, journal, all that good stuff.

It’s great, and it will help, but it’s not going to make a big bag of money magically fall from the sky right away.

It may take time for you to become an energetic match for your desired reality.

What’s The Truth?

As you visualize, you focus on you desires and your energy shifts.

There is always a buffer between you putting your desire out there and for that desire to become your reality.

During that buffer, the universe begins rearranging things for you.

This is important for at least two reasons.

First, imagine how boring life would be if everything you ever wanted was immediately granted to you?

You’d never have anything to look forward to, nothing to strive for.

But at the same time, imagine how frightening such a world would be too.

We all occasionally have thoughts that are darker and messier, but on sober second thought we come to realize those thoughts aren’t reflecting our best selves.

We wouldn’t want them to come true either, would we?

It’s the process of becoming, of growing, of discovery, which makes life exciting.

It’s these elements that are necessary for our continued personal growth.

By aligning your thoughts with your desired goals and taking inspired action, you can begin to bring your dream life into reality.

It’s a process, but it’s not likely to happen overnight.

Myth #3: Visualizing Is All You Need

This ties in with the last one.

Visualization is powerful, and in fact we’ve talked about how powerful it can be in the past.

In a previous article, The Science Behind Manifesting Your Dream Life, we looked at how the brain influences how strong your muscles are, and how visualizing yourself using your muscles can actually help maintain them.

Based on that, you might assume that visualization works without the accompanying action.

But that’s not entirely how it works.

Why It’s False

Visualization is a powerful technique and can help with clarity, performance, and state of being – which are all important in the art of manifestation.

However, visualization alone is not enough.

What’s The Truth?

If you take a closer look at the study mentioned in the article linked above, you’ll notice it shows the role visualization has in working toward your goals.

In the study, a group of people had their wrists immobilized, but one subgroup visualized flexing their muscles and the other did not.

The ones who visualized themselves using their wrist muscles saw less of a loss in muscular strength when compared to the ones who didn’t, but they still lost muscular strength.

On the other hand, if one actually were to use their wrist muscles during a similar length of time along with visualizing it, they’d see an actual increase in strength.

What does this tell us?

Visualizing is powerful, but on its own it won’t bring you to your goals.

It’s only by pairing it with inspired action that you can use visualization to manifest the life of your dreams.

Inspired action is a non negotiable.

It doesn’t have to be a grandiose action.

It can be as simple as making that phone call, or going for a walk, or accepting an invitation to an event.

Myth #4: Manifestation Is About Living A Lavish Lifestyle, And I’m Not Interested In That

If you hang out in the online manifestation space, it’s only a matter of time before you come across a manifestation guru who lives a lavish and luxurious lifestyle.

Expensive cars, high fashion, tons of vacations, first class travel, and other overt displays of wealth are commonplace in such spaces.

But maybe that sort of lifestyle is not for you, so you might assume that manifestation in turn is not for you.

But there’s more to it than that.

Why It’s False

Manifestation is not just about getting lots of material things.

Surely, these things are not for everybody.

However, manifestation and creation are both happening anyway, whether or not you’re doing it consciously.

What’s The Truth?

Conscious manifestation is a way of life.

You can apply it to manifest your dream relationship, manifest a healthier lifestyle, or even to develop a confident mindset, among many other things.

The difference is that conscious manifestation is about manifesting the life of your dreams, and nobody else’s.

If the lavish lifestyle appeals to you, that’s great – manifest away.

But if it doesn’t, that’s okay too.

Maybe you want more of a sense of community, or more leisure time, or a greater sense of security, or more love.

Whatever it is you want your life to look like, conscious manifestation can help you get there.

Let go of the expectations others have of you and manifest the life of your dreams, not the life someone else says you should live.

Myth 5: Affirming What I Want Is Enough

Affirmations are great, so it follows that affirming what you want should be all you need to manifest the life of your dreams.


Why It’s False

Affirming what you want, focusing on what you want, only works if you truly believe it will.

More often, however, focusing on what you want tends to lead us to focus on the fact that we don’t have what we want, which keeps us in a mindset of lack.

This is the opposite of manifesting your dreams.

What’s The Truth?

Assume the wish fulfilled – Neville Goddard

Rather than focusing on what you don’t have, start by getting a full, deep understanding of a specific desire you have.

Focus on how you’d feel if you already had it.

Understand what achieving that will look like, taste like, smell like, sound like, and feel like – get all your senses involved.

Manifestation comes from within, and this is where its true power lies.
