Changing how you feel and think about the homebuying process is a great place to start.

Read on to find out how.
Create a list of “must-haves” Determining what you’re looking for in your dream house and what you need it to do for you is key There are two approaches to manifesting your perfect home. One is to picture every detail, and the other is to get clear about what you want from a house. For example, do you want a red house on 2.2 acres, a fenced-in yard, and a breakfast nook? Or, do you want a house that allows you to work from home, has a yard for your children and dog, and is within walking distance of a good school? One may fit your ideal physical home, while the other fits your lifestyle. Neither is wrong. Both require you to know what you need this home to do for you. – Mary Gleason Coaching & Consulting Once you know what it is you’re looking for, act on it and the rest will fall into place The first step is to write down all your needs and wants for your perfect home. After that, search for homes that fit these criteria and visit them. Your last step is to visualize yourself in these homes. Imagine what you would do in each room and what your daily life would look like in this home. – Crystal Desire Tour houses to help you envision yourself in your dream house The best way to manifest your dream home is to get clear on what you want and act as if it’s already yours. Whether you go to an open house, walk through a model home, or take a virtual tour, seeing the real thing will help you bring your vision to life and tap into the excitement and joy you’d feel if it was already yours. As you walk through the home, act as though it’s yours by planning out how you will arrange the furniture, what colors you’ll paint it, and how you’ll make it your own. There’s no better way to bring your dream to life than by trying it on for a day and seeing how it feels. – Law of Attraction Tribe Set yourself up for success by getting your finances in order To manifest your dream home this year, put yourself in the path of it. For example, get your finances organized and ready as best you can and start saving.Talk to a financial advisor or mortgage broker about what needs to happen to be able to go shopping for your dream home, even if you’re nowhere near in a position to buy it. It might mean doing your tax return or applying for that new job to set you up for success later in the year. Do whatever comes to mind when you tune into your heart, that you think could potentially put you in the path of your dream home. The Universe needs you to take some baby steps to help it give what you desire – inspired action is the best way to help this happen. Remember, you’re a co-creator with the Universe, which means you can’t just sit back on the couch and wish; you have to be a team with the Universe and take some action. But don’t worry, the Universe will always do all the heavy lifting. – Your Purpose Muse Make a vision board of your ideal home A vision board is a visual representation of your dreams and goals, usually created by pasting magazine images to a poster board. You can create a collage of furniture you love, eye-catching colors, and any other personal touches that would make your future house feel like your warm and cozy dream home. Don’t forget to include images of how you’d use the space with your friends, family, and loved ones. – Thrive Lounge Enjoy your current space to promote positive energy as you embark on your homebuying journey To manifest your dream home in 2022, you first need to fall in love with your existing home Feeling unappreciative of your current home nurtures a low-vibe energy of lack that blocks the manifestation process. Before you set out to find a new home, make a list of all the things you love about your existing home, and actively try and turn it into a space you enjoy. By changing its energy, you’ll change your energy and manifest your dream home. – George Lizos, psychic healer and #1 bestselling author of Protect Your Light One of the best manifesting tips I continue to use is giving love, and in this case, it’s giving your current home extra TLC The Universe reflects your general focus because it doesn’t know what is real. Focus on how grateful you are for your present home and how much it has helped you while living in it. Give your home the loving energy another person wants to experience in it, and mesh this focus with what you desire in your dream home. Energy is a give-give relationship. – Jaclyn Johnston, #1 Best-selling author and creator of Manifest It!® Write down your goals One of the biggest things you can do is write down your goals. So many people want things, but they don’t write them down or “map it out” on paper. What kind of house do you want? Where do you want it? Home many rooms? How big of a garage? Write down all of the details, then read that list every day for 30-60 days. Don’t hesitate to add or change details as you go. The power of writing down a goal is priceless. – Law of Attraction Coaching Try not to let yourself get overwhelmed by the process Focus on what is best for you and your current situation Sometimes picturing your dream home can feel overwhelming with all of the choices available to you. For example, if you find yourself worrying about whether your home should be in a particular school district vs. closer to your work, remember that you get to do what’s best for you at the moment. This will make it easier to visualize your goal and take steps toward making it a reality. – Nikole Stanfield, My Intuition Coach It’s really hard to micromanage the Universe, so don’t Understand what you want to manifest, leave room to receive something even better, and let go of any attempt to control how your dream home comes to you. Whether you use visualization, vision boards, affirmations, or something else – follow these guidelines to make it easier for the Universe to bring your home to you. – John Moore, Maine Shaman Trust the process As you work toward your goal, you may question if manifesting your dream house actually works. You might get discouraged and frustrated. If you’re sitting in the struggle and wondering when things are going to happen, you aren’t trusting the process. When you question manifestation, you’re telling the universe to prove manifesting doesn’t work. The Law of Attraction obliges by sending you experiences that keep you stuck. To manifest, you have to trust the process. Whenever you find yourself doubting, catch yourself and say, “I’m getting closer and closer to my goals every day. The Universe has my back, and it’s awesome.” Repeat this phrase until you believe it. – Good Luck Gift Create the feeling of being in your new home, now What we manifest in the future is based on the emotional frequency that we choose to feel right now Master the feeling (ex. calm, peaceful, beautiful, clean, spacious, luxurious, etc.) as if you are already in your beautiful new home. This may inspire you to take action by deep cleaning, organizing, going to open houses, budgeting what you can spend on the new house, and caring for your current home as if it’s the new home. Master the feeling first, then actively do what intuitively inspires you because intuitive action will always lead you to your fastest manifestations. – Natalie Schlute The master key to success is this: inhabit your future as if it is happening already now Make your dream tangible, walk within the walls of your new home in your mind’s eye, feel as if your dream home was already yours. Do what many of the students of Living From Vision® do: pre-create your success. Even if it’s just for five minutes, imagine you’re already there. Feel it, smell it, touch it, taste it. – Ilona Selke Begin to “act as if” Imagine it’s a Sunday in your dream home; what would you be doing? How would you feel? If you struggle to connect with the feelings, create a “dream home binder” and fill it with contacts, contractors, and businesses you would need to hire once you move. You can also include shopping lists and even mini-vision board pages. Flip through your “dream home binder” first thing in the morning or right before bed. – Fwrd Institute Envision how your life looks and feels like in your dream home Start by envisioning exactly what your dream home looks like, smells like, and sounds like From there, shift your current perception and imagine that you’re already living in your dream home, and soak in what the highest frequency of your home makes you feel like. Are you comfy, peaceful, safe, secure, happy? Lastly, take action to make your dream home a reality. – AquaHolic Journey A powerful practice you can do to make the energetic leap from renter to homeowner is to tap into how you want your new home to feel Start by choosing three keywords that embody the qualities you most desire in your new home, for example: spacious, luxurious, homely. Once you’ve chosen your top three words, take a moment each day to close your eyes and visualize a home that feels the way you want it to feel. This practice will help you manifest your new house by shifting your thoughts and energy to focus on what you want, and it will make the process of choosing a new home much easier. – Juliette Kristine When it comes to manifesting a house in 2022, the feeling is the key Start by listing 10 to 20 qualities and characteristics of your dream home, describing everything you can think of in detail. Then imagine an “end scene” of you already living in that home every night before bed. While doing this, feel that the home is already yours, and all things will start to magnetize toward you to bring this imagined reality to physical fact. – Scott Haug Manifestation Mentoring Many manifestation practices can help make your dream of homeownership a reality When you are manifesting your dream house, visualization and scripting are essential, but the most important thing is to actually get into the feeling that your dream home is already yours. You can take this even further by using the “Mutual Desire Manifestation Method.” Visualize and get into the feelings and emotions of you being in your dream home and know and feel that your dream home desires you as well. Your dream home is also equally excited to have you make memories in the rooms, build a family there, and so on. Doing this extra step will help manifest your house faster. – Marian Valenza Close your eyes and take a few slow, grounding breaths. Drop your awareness down into the center of your body, where you hear from your intuition. Then ask, “What can I do to call in the house of my dreams?” Listen to the wisdom you receive and take actions that feel good, exciting, and easy to you. – Kaileen Elise Take a white or green candle and anoint the candle by placing a small drop of rosemary oil and a pinch of salt on it. Light the candle, then write a list of the things you want in your new home on a piece of paper. Once you finish your list, close your eyes and imagine that you are walking through your new home. Imagine the feelings you’ll experience on that amazing day, now open your eyes and blow out the candle. – Mystical Studies
