Want to stop daydreaming and finally achieve your biggest goals and desires? Well, maybe you need the “I Have” method.
The “I Have” manifestation method involves repeating the phrase “I have…” followed by your desired outcome as if it’s already happened. This affirmation is combined with visualizing and feeling yourself already experiencing your desire.
In this guide, I’ll walk you through exactly how to manifest using this technique. You’ll discover how shifting your internal world transforms your external experience.
4 Steps to Using the “I Have” Method
1. Get Crystal Clear on Your Desire
First, identify precisely what you want to manifest. Details matter here! Take some time to write your desires down clearly.
When writing, I’d recommend doing the following:
- Get ultra-specific. Include amounts, locations, qualities, and timeframes.
- Ask yourself: How would having this make me feel? What benefits would it bring?
Some examples of specific desires:
- “I have a luxury 2-bedroom apartment in downtown Seattle with city views.”
- “I have a brand new Tesla Model X with pearl white paint.”
The idea is to dream big without limiting yourself to what seems possible.
2. Create Your “I Have” Statement
This is vital – transforming your desires into empowered “I have…” statements. Done right, these simple phrases become tools to reprogram your subconscious mind and energy field to align with already having your goal.
Take your clearly defined desire and reframe it as a statement starting with “I have” and ending with the details of your goal. Write it in present tense, as if you have it right now in this moment.
Keep your statement concise, positive, and targeted. Avoid using negative or vague language. Focus on what you DO want, not what you don’t want.
For example, “I have a luxury two-bedroom apartment downtown” rather than “I don’t live in this cramped, noisy apartment anymore.”
You can write multiple different statements for the same desire from various angles.
Here are some examples across different goal categories:
- Career: “I have a fulfilling six-figure job at a progressive startup company.” “I have a bestselling book about manifesting.”
- Finances: “I have $500,000 in my savings account.” “I have zero debt and complete financial freedom.”
- Relationships: “I have an amazing, deeply connected relationship.” “I have a loving, supportive circle of friends.”
- Health: “I have boundless energy and vitality.” “I have a strong, pain-free body.”
When crafting your statements, make sure to avoid common pitfalls like:
- Using the wrong tense (“I will have” instead of “I have”)
- Being too vague or generic with the details
- Focusing on lack or what you don’t want
- Making it too long or complicated
3. Speak Your Statement with Intention
Now the fun part begins! Recite your “I have…” statement/s out loud for 5-10 minutes a day with complete focused intention. I’d recommend finding a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted.
Start by taking a few deep breaths to center yourself in the present moment. Clear your mind of any lingering thoughts.
Now begin reciting your “I have…” statements one by one, out loud with strong intention. Speak slowly and deliberately. Let yourself feel the positive emotions that arise as you declare your new reality.
You can whisper your statements, speak at a normal volume or loudly. Use the volume that feels most empowering and aligned for you.
As you repeat your statements, visualize and feel yourself already experiencing the new reality you are describing. See details of what you’re stating manifested in your life.
For example, as you state “I have a new luxury apartment downtown,” picture yourself in the stylish living room, looking out at the spectacular city views. Engage all your senses. Make it real.
Over time, consistently commanding your subconscious with “I have…” will transform your self-concept to align with already having your desires.
4. Repeat the Process Daily
Consistency is vital when reprogramming your subconscious mind through manifestation techniques. To truly impress your desires on the quantum field, you need repetition and persistence.
Aim to do this full 4-step “I Have” process both morning and evening for best results. Upon waking sets the tone for your day, while before bed implants your desires in your subconscious as you sleep.
If you have limited time, even doing a shortened version once a day is beneficial. But twice daily is ideal.
Manifesting the life of your dreams is within reach. By following the “I Have” Method, you now have a simple yet powerful 4-step process.
First, identify your desires in precise detail. Dream big and get specific! Then craft empowering “I have…” statements in the present tense. Let the words resonate.
Next, speak those statements aloud daily with full intention until they imprint in your subconscious mind.
Finally, make this a consistent daily ritual. Repetition is key for reshaping your beliefs.
Give this method 30 committed days. Record your statements to repeat mentally anytime. Release expectations and trust the perfection of the timing.
