I think about manifestation a lot lately, as a Muslim I know it’s even an Islamic thing to do because of the hadith وقال الله تعالى في الحديث القدسي: (أنا عند ظن عبدي بي؛ إن ظن بي خيراً فله، وإن ظن شراً فله)
It’s all part of positive thinking for yourself and your outcomes in life. I’ve done it before many times without realizing and it all ended exactly how I wanted it because I trusted that Allah will make it happen. My old tutor wanted to make hajj one year and everyone told her it was impossible but she kept saying she had good faith in Allah that he would make it happen. The night before everyone was leaving she got a call that they had one more spot for her on an all woman’s hajj bus and she made hajj that year. We can change any situation by our conscious decision. When we fully and completely say — I want this no matter what and I choose it completely.
