After the kookiness of 2020, it seems we’re all just looking for a little positivity in our lives. According to Pinterest data, searches for manifestation techniques are up by a whopping 105 percent. Think of manifestation as bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief. It’s similar to the popular Law of Attraction, a philosophy of the New Thought Movement (a mind-healing movement that originated in the United States in the 19th century and is based on religious and metaphysical concepts). Basically, it states that if you focus on the good and positive things in your life, you’ll attract more of those positive things into your life. On the flip side, if you're frequently focused on the negative, that’s what will be attracted into your life.
The belief is based on the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and that through the process of like energy attracting like energy, a person can improve their own health, wealth and personal relationships. Though the term first appeared in the mid-19th century, it’s been popularized in recent times by books like Rhonda Byrne's smash-hit 2006 self-help book, The Secret.
