Did you know that there are words you should avoid using when manifesting? Yes, the words you use can actually make a big difference in whether or not your manifestations come to fruition. That’s because words can have such a powerful impact on our subconscious mind – which is an essential part of the manifestation process.
So, if you’re not careful, you could be unwittingly sabotaging bringing your desires into reality with the words you use. Dont worry, though, because in this article, I’ll tell you the 12 words to avoid when manifesting – as well as 12 powerful words to use instead.
Why should you avoid certain words when manifesting?
Words have the power to create emotions within us, positive or negative.
They can bring out both good and bad feelings. Words are incredibly powerful and can change your life, depending on the words you choose.
Too many times, we use words that don’t support our goals, dreams, or aspirations.
The more we say these words, the more they become a reality in our lives because it shows them to be true in our minds.
When we say things like “I always fail,” “I’m not smart enough,” or “I never get anything I want,” what does this do?
It reinforces those beliefs, which ultimately becomes who you are because those thoughts form habits within us.
We act similarly to how someone would who has those characteristics.
When we look at ourselves with words like “I’m awesome!” or “I always succeed at getting what I want,” our mind will start to form new habits that ultimately bring out these positive characteristics within us and shows our inner awesomeness!
Manifestation is all about self-belief, and if you’re constantly repeating negative words, you’re unconsciously showing that to yourself.
This makes it impossible for you to form new habits of positivity and self-belief.
12 words to avoid using when manifesting
When you want to manifest your desires, you must use the right words to bring about your desires.
The wrong words can prevent you from ever achieving it.
Here are 12 words not to use when trying to manifest your dreams:
The first word to avoid using when manifesting is “maybe.”
If you’re unsure about what you want, it’ll be harder to bring it into reality.
The universe doesn’t respond well to “maybe” because it doesn’t know what to do with it.
You have to be specific about what you want; otherwise, you’ll get mixed results, and it’ll be harder to manifest your desires.
Instead of using “maybe”, swap it for “I am”, which is rooted in positive intention.
When you say “someday,” you’re putting your desires off into the future.
You’re telling yourself that you’ll achieve your dreams “someday,” but that day never comes.
If you want to manifest your desires, you must be willing to take action now.
Instead of using “someday”, use “today”, which implies taking immediate action towards your goals.
The word “hopefully” implies that you’re not confident about what you want, so you must remove it from your vocabulary if you’re going to manifest your desires.
You need to be confident about what you want to achieve; otherwise, it’ll be harder to bring it into your reality.
And using the word “hopefully” will only make it more difficult.
Swap out “hopefully” for “confidently”, to convey a stronger belief in your ability to manifest your desires.
When you say “I can’t,” you’re putting up a barrier that’s preventing you from achieving your dreams.
You’re telling yourself that you’re incapable of achieving your desires, which is the furthest thing from the truth.
You are capable of anything you set your mind to, so remove the word “can’t” from your vocabulary and replace it with “I can.”
Similar to the word “can’t,” the word “won’t” is also a barrier.
When you use “won’t, it’s just like telling yourself that your desires aren’t going to manifest.
Your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are powerful, so if you keep telling yourself that your desires won’t manifest, then it’ll be much harder to bring them into your reality.
Instead of using “won’t”, swap it for “will” to shift your focus towards a positive outcome.
The word “impossible” should also be removed from your vocabulary when trying to manifest your desires.
When you use this word, you’re telling the universe that your dreams are out of reach.
This can be a significant roadblock on the path to manifestation.
Swap “impossible” for “possible”, which reinforces the idea that anything is possible if you believe it is.
7. If only
The word “if only” implies you’re unhappy with your current situation.
You’re telling yourself that if only certain things were different, then you’d be happy.
But the truth is, you can be happy right now, no matter your circumstances.
Replace “if only” with the more positive word “soon”, which will help you shift your focus from what you don’t have to what you will have in the future.
I think we all know that hate is a strong word.
But when you say “I hate,” you’re putting negative energy into the universe.
This negative energy can be reflected to you, preventing you from achieving your desires.
It’s important to focus on the positive and use words like “love” and “appreciate” instead.
9. Not now
This one might seem harness, but it’s actually quite harmful.
Saying “not now” is like telling the universe that you’re not ready to receive your desires.
Maybe you’re nervous, and that’s why you’re trying to put it off, but the truth is, you’re always ready to receive.
Replace “not now” with the more positive word “In due time”, which implies that your desires are on their way and that you trust in the timing of the universe.
Most have probably said, “I wish this would happen” or “I wish I could have that.”
When you use the word “wish,” you’re putting your desires into the universe without conviction.
You’re not putting any force behind your desires and not telling the universe that it’s possible.
Instead of using “wish”, you could use “intend”, which focuses on your active role in manifesting your desires.
You might be surprised to see this word in our list of words to avoid when manifesting.
But the truth is, the word need suggests attachment and control to what you’re trying to manifest.
Attachment and control are two of the biggest obstacles on the path to manifestation.
You need to detach yourself from the outcome of your desires and trust that the universe will provide.
Swap “need” for “trust” to shift your focus from trying to control the outcome to allowing the universe to bring you what you truly desire.
Nothing in life is easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable.
When you use the word “difficult,” you’re setting yourself up for a struggle.
You’re telling yourself that whatever you try to manifest will be a battle.
This belief will only make it harder for you to manifest your desires.
Replace “difficult” with “easy”, to shift your mindset to one of growth and opportunity.
The words you use to talk about yourself or your desires can profoundly affect how quickly they manifest.
When you want to manifest your dreams, it’s essential that you only say positive things so the universe will show you more of those good things in return.
For example, if we constantly put ourselves down by repeating phrases like “I never get anything I want,” the world starts giving us what we believe is all we deserve: less than what we wanted.
So be careful with the thoughts and words used when trying to create life!
The wrong language could lead to not being able to manifest your desires at all.
So, repeat these new positive phrases to yourself daily and watch your life start changing around you!
