How To Manifest Your Dream Life While You Sleep

I don’t think there’s anyone in the world who wouldn’t like to get their dream life in their sleep. If you’re like me, you spend the last 20 minutes of your days lying awake in your bed and worrying about what the next day, week, or month has in store for you. 

But this new form of manifestation takes advantage of the time you’re spending in bed and asks you to redirect your subconscious and train it to manifest for you while you’re sleeping. And all you have to do is take advantage of the last five minutes you’re awake before the day ends.

Why Your Thoughts Matter

Many people believe that your final thoughts before you go to sleep can last for up to four hours in your subconscious mind. So when you’re mulling over the day and thinking about work and life stressors, your dreams are all the more likely to center around those stressors. 

But if you’re focusing on manifesting your dream life in the last five minutes you’re awake, you’re creating positive programming for your subconscious to mull over for the next few hours.

The Four Steps to Prepare for Sleep Manifestation

1. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. 

2. Ask yourself: “If all my desires were fulfilled, how would I feel in my body right now?”

Ruminate on that thought and feeling and feel your body shift as you continue to concentrate. The key to properly manifesting is to feel like what you’re manifesting is already happening. Envision yourself achieving that goal and feel it in every cell of your body.

3. Use powerful ‘I am’ affirmations.

These affirmations can help to further guide your manifestation and your dream life. Whatever you’re trying to manifest, repeat ‘I am’ and then add your manifestation goal until you drift off to sleep. These affirmations are telling your brain that what you’re manifesting is true and real. 

4. If you can’t stop worrying, get out of bed. 

Get up, turn the lights on, shake the feelings off, read or listen to something inspirational, meditate, and do whatever you can to reset your mind and get it on a more positive path. After you’ve had time to reset, lie down again and repeat the first three steps. 

Just like in every manifestation practice, don’t try to test or doubt what you’re manifesting. Simply believe it’s going to happen and continue to move on with your life. The final key to any successful manifestation is to believe it will come to pass with everything in you.

My Week

I didn’t do well with last week’s manifestation challenge, but I come out of every manifestation feeling more relaxed than before, so there’s a big chance that these manifestations will put me right to sleep. There’s something about working toward your dream life and resting in the assurance that it will come to you that’s relaxing. 

The first two nights of this challenge, I fell asleep telling myself affirmations and believing that everything was going to be okay.

On the third night, the 20 minutes of affirmations didn’t work as well as they had the first two, so I changed my mantras into prayers. I didn’t see too much harm in that, considering I had already done the manifestation part and the prayer was just an added bonus. 

The next night, I saw that you should say, “while I sleep [the thing I’m manifesting is happening]” which isn’t what I had been doing as a way of manifestation, more the “I am” statements. So I switched to those. 

It’s after night six now and I still haven’t gotten what I’ve been manifesting, but I’m still holding out hope. If nothing else, it’s a really great way to fall asleep and just accept that things will work out for my benefit by the time I wake up.

My Results

I don’t think manifestation is for me. While I don’t necessarily see the harm in practicing it or trying out some methods of manifestation, I haven’t found success and I can’t help but feel like I wasted my time a little bit in the last two weeks. 

That being said, there were benefits to spending the last little moments I was awake focusing on what I wanted. 

Similar to the whisper manifestation, I was able to take a step back and think about what I genuinely wanted out of life. I think we often speed through life and assume we want all these things, but when it really comes down to it, we only want a small bit of them. 

What I want in life and what I want my life to look like in a little bit were two huge topics for me in the past two weeks as I seemingly had the opportunity to get whatever I wanted. I thought about what I would choose to focus on for my manifesting time a lot throughout the days, and I came to the conclusion that my life is pretty wonderful. 

While night manifestation might not have had the desired effect on me, it did make me more grateful for what I have, and it also helped me reflect on my goals and what I ought to do to achieve them. 

I don’t think I’ll try night manifestation again, but if the things I’ve manifested throughout these past two weeks end up coming true, I’m willing to be proven wrong.
