Paulo Coelho said it best, “People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” What small step will you take TODAY in order to manifest your dreams? Using the Law of Attraction to manifest your dreams is about visualizing what it is that you want, acting as if it is your current reality, and taking massive action in order to make it happen.
I'm Rachel, the founder of The Confused Millennial, a lifestyle blog sharing personal experience and advice to help other confused millennials navigate this whole "#adulting" thing on topics like careers, entrepreneurship, finance, the home, relationships and more. After earning my Master's Degree in Counseling, and landing my "dream job" I found myself feeling completely miserable with no work-life balance. I rectified the situation by getting in touch with my passions and started coaching millennials to create their own blog or business that they could turn into a fulfilling and sustainable career. My expertise has been seen on Forbes as a contributing writer, Fast Company, Brit + Co, Dailyworth, and more. Learn more about working together on turning your blog into a business here.

Until recently, most psychoanalytic dream researchers have followed Freud's theoretical approach by interpreting dreams as one's unconscious desires. Currently, most modern day psychologists are concerned with "tracing out the metaphoric meanings of dreams rather than investigating what they might be expressing more literally with social and personal experience" (Hollan, 2009, p. 313). Trauma researchers especially have focused their efforts on patients' experiences with nightmares, reoccurring memories, and flashbacks as unique manifestations of psychiatric disorders, particularly PTSD. A few previous research studies including Barrett (1996) have delineated a strong pattern of post-traumatic nightmares, in which the dreams follow an extremely close reenactment to a particular event. These updated analytic techniques expand on Freud’s theoretical framework and provide a more holistic approach of dream understanding.
Under laboratory conditions, cutting edge science has confirmed that every thought is made up of energy and has its own unique frequency. And when this energy and frequency of a single thought radiates out into the Universe, it naturally interacts with the material world. Of course, it has long been known that matter, or physical objects, are also just packets of energy at the sub-microscopic, quantum level. And so, as your thought radiates out, it attracts the energy and frequencies of like thoughts, like objects, and even like people, and draws those things back to you.
The fact that we build evidence to support our beliefs is not evidence that a law of attraction exists. Why do innocent babies attract negativity that causes them to be in the ICU with fatal illnesses? Why do happy children get hit by cars or murdered by terrorists? Why do people who cheat and lie and abuse others, sometimes prosper and become leaders in society? If we are using anecdotal evidence to support claims, I will have plenty of examples.
As we grow and mature old dreams are realized or change into new ones. It's an ongoing process. Invest in that precept by developing the necessary habits to consistently obtain the dreams you hold for your life. The 90-year-old yogi's body stays supple from constant use. In the same way, practice the art of dream manifestation by being aware of your dreams, engage with the laws of attraction in a habitual way and you'll become a dream manifestation Jedi-master.
In truth, though, we're missing out on a lot of the power the concept has to offer. I wish more people were using the law of attraction to “manifest” a life they love. As a spiritual teacher and healer, I’ve seen the power of the law of attraction create love, healing, and, yes, financial abundance for my clients. So, today I’m sharing my recipe for manifesting anything!
