Why do you want more friends?
Before you begin manifesting friendships, get clear about why you want friends. Having close friends in your life is important for many reasons. Mayo Clinic states that having friends prevents loneliness and offers companionship, among many other benefits. But, when it comes to friendships, it’s important to focus on quality, not quantity. Because the truth of the matter is having one real friend is much more valuable than having a bunch of fake ones.
So, if you have friends in your life, take some time to think about why you might want more friends in the first place. Ask yourself some questions about your current friendships:
- Can I be myself when I’m with them?
- Are they dependable?
- Do they support me when I need them most?
- Do they show up for significant life events?
- Do they constantly put me down?
It’s also important to think about yourself. What role do you play in the quality of your relationships? How much effort are you willing to put into being a good friend? Friendship requires an investment from all involved parties. You must be willing to put in just as much work as you expect to gain if you genuinely want to experience high-quality relationships.
What does it mean to manifest something?
You may be wondering what it means to manifest something. In the simplest terms, manifestation is the process of putting something into physical reality through intentional thought and focus. It’s using positive energy and your subconscious mind to achieve something that you really want. Manifestation is a powerful tool that employs practices like visualization exercises to help you achieve the desired outcome.
How can manifestation be used in friendships?
Using manifestation techniques is a great way to improve current relationships or even make new ones. The more focused you are on the types of people you want to attract in your life, the higher your chances of attracting and keeping those types of people in your friendship circles. Here are some easy steps you can take to begin intentionally manifesting friendships:
- Think about the kind of person you want to have a genuine companionship with.
- Start journaling about the types of relationships you want.
- Imagine yourself actually being closer to this person. Is this someone you would want to hang out with or talk to on a consistent basis? Do you think you would have a good time with this person?
- Repeat positive affirmations. Remove any negative thoughts from your mind.
- Create a vision board if you are a visual person.
- Think about what you love (or dislike) about your current friends. Are you looking for people with similar qualities or would you prefer someone that brings a different energy?
- If you’ve struggled to make friendships in your normal day-to-day routine, consider moving out of your comfort zone. Go to new places and try new activities so that you can potentially meet new people.
- Be your authentic self no matter what. You never want to compromise who you are in an effort to attract the attention of others.
- Allow your manifestation to become a reality. Don’t get so wrapped up in the desired outcome that you miss it when it actually appears.
What limiting beliefs do you have around friendship?
Sometimes, we’re our own worst enemies when it comes to friendships. At a certain age, we often develop the “no new friends” mindset for no apparent reason. This attitude may create a barrier between us and those who might be the best friends we never knew we needed.
There is a good chance that you have some of these limiting beliefs and you haven’t even realized it. Have you ever had any of the following thoughts when it comes to new relationships?
- No one that lives near me is the type of person I’d want to be friends with.
- I’m way too busy to make new friends.
- I have all the friends I need in my life.
- I’m too old to get to know someone new.
- There are too many crazy people out there. I can’t just start talking to new people. That’s weird.
- Nobody around here has interests similar to mine.
These are just a few examples of the types of limiting beliefs that may keep you from meeting new people. Get rid of those negative beliefs and you might just meet your new best friend.
How can I attract a friendship?
Is it even possible to make friends using the manifestation method? I think so. In fact, I think it might be the best way to increase your friendship circles and add some true friends to the mix. The law of attraction is a real thing and it’s an effective way to attract the kind of friends you want in your life.
If you want people to be attracted to you, here are some things you can do:
Show a genuine interest in their well-being
Ask people how they are doing, and mean it. When people greet each other, they commonly ask the question, “How are you?” But, how often do they really listen to the response the person gives? We are all so busy with our lives that we ask this question out of habit, but seldom do we slow down enough to really look at each other and show genuine concern about how the other is doing. Try to be intentional about showing a genuine interest in how other people are doing, even if you are having a hard time yourself. It’s important to remember that everyone is going through something.
Do what you say you’re going to do. Be where you say you’re going to be. Show up when you say you’re going to show up. It’s as simple as that. If you’re unable to make an obligation that you’ve committed to, communicate. Don’t leave people hanging. Being dependable is a quality that people appreciate in someone. It’s definitely one that would make the list of characteristics of a good friend.
Invest in your relationships
Relationships require an investment of time, conversation, emotion, and resources. To manifest a friendship, you should be investing these things into the kind of people that you want to be friends with. Just like investing a little money can yield big results over time, little things can pay off tremendously in relationships, too.
A characteristic of a great friend is someone who knows how to listen. Be intentional about listening to people when they talk to you. People appreciate someone who listens intently without interruption and without waiting on edge to insert their next comment. When someone is talking to you, try not to be distracted by your phone or device. Look the person in the eye and truly show that you are interested in what they have to say.
Genuinely share things about yourself
Establishing rapport with people requires you to share things about yourself so that they can get to know you a bit. Of course, you want to exercise caution when it comes to sharing things that are too personal, but it’s nice to let people know things that will help them get to know more about your interests and personality. Sharing your hobbies and core values is important because it allows potential friends to get to know more about you.
Find some common interests
Though having common interests is not an absolute must for friends, it’s nice when you have a few things in common. When you have friends with common interests, you have a built-in partner when you want to do the things on your list that you love doing. For example, if you and your friends enjoy cooking, getting together to cook would be a fun way for you to spend time together.
Show an interest in their interests
If you don’t have many interests in common with your buddy, that’s okay. What’s not okay is dismissing their interests or acting as if their interests are unimportant. Show a genuine interest in your friend’s hobbies, even if it’s not something that is not particularly interesting to you. Over time, you may even learn to appreciate the things that your comrade loves so much.
Be supportive of their goals
Everyone has different goals and aspirations. As you are manifesting friendships, it’s important to be supportive of the goals of other people. Try to provide encouraging words as much as you can as your friend works towards goals and celebrate small successes along the way.
