3 Steps To Attracting Your Ideal Friends

1. Clarity - decide what you want. Have a clear mental image of who you want your friends to be - what are their interests? Why do you resonate with them? What do you want out of your friendship with them? What are their values? What kinds of things do you do together? Where are you likely to hang out with them? How would you feel around them? 

Building a clear mental image of what you are seeking is an important part of the manifestation process - but it’s equally important to identify how it would feel to have what you are seeking. Once you know how it would look and feel - you can take action to bring the vision into reality.

2. Actions - become that which you seek. If you’ve decided that you want your new friends to be interested in art - align your actions with this goal and start spending more of your time in art galleries, creating art or going to exhibitions. Through doing this over time you will be more likely to meet those you resonate with because you are aligning your vibration with that which you seek.

This is essential for all manifestations, but particularly those of this kind - because they involve other people - you cannot attract others without placing yourself in the best position to do so.

3. Patience - anything worth having takes time. Be patient during this process and remember that you aren’t supposed to resonate with every single person you meet. Don’t settle for the friendships that present themselves in the early stage just because they showed up - be selective about who you choose to spend your time with.

Understand that you will outgrow some friendships because your vibration is changing and over time you may want different things. We need to distance ourselves from the relationships that no longer serve us in order to find the ones that do.

Anything worth having doesn’t come easy & anything that comes easy isn’t worth having.

Peace & positive vibes.

Friendly reminder to check you’re not holding tension in your body. Let your shoulders drop, unclench your hands and jaw. Take a deep breath. Much better.
1. Go to a party and stay sober. Listen to the way your drunk classmates talk when they don’t plan to remember tonight when they wake up. Never talk about these experiences, just keep them for yourself.
2. Start driving in one direction on the highway after school one day, pretending like you’re running away. Blast bad pop music and sing along. Stop in the suburbs when your mom calls you to come home, but buy your little brother a cupcake before you turn back around.
3. Kiss your best friend. It doesn’t matter what sexuality or gender you are or they are. It doesn’t matter if it’s a peck or you escalate to tongue. You’ll laugh about it later, but it will always make you smile just for the memory.
4. Smoke a cigarette. Let it burn your throat. Cough, loudly.
5. Take a stand for something you believe in. When half your school laughs at you, take it with pride. Someone agrees, even if they’re too scared to say so.
6. Make enemies. Make the kind of mistakes that cause your life to implode. Lose everyone and everything to these mistakes. Only when you fall will you find out that you can pick yourself back up.
7. Sit on someone’s roof and talk for hours. Forget about dinner and tell your origin stories. Let your guard down while the dog barks below. Talk about god. Listen.
8. Steal Bourbon from your parents’ liquor cabinet and put it in a water bottle beneath your bathroom sink. Spike your tea with it when you think you’ve hit rock bottom. Pour the whole thing down the drain when it’s too strong for you.
9. Become a stereotype. Buy a record player and combat boots. Wear all black. Dye your hair bright blue and get your ear pierced three times. Don’t care when people laugh at you.
10. Make wishes at 11:11. Wear your pajamas backwards in the hopes of a snow day. Look for answers at the bottom of a bottle. Pretend writing things on your arms makes you special. Believe in anything. Believe in everything. Open every book and look around every corner. You’ll never look like this or move like this or think like this again. Enjoy it while it lasts or hate every second. But feel. Feel every damn thing.
Fall in love with someone who doesn’t mind showing you who you are, but whose willing to love you until you’re the best you possible. Fall in love with someone who makes you laugh so hard, your stomach cramps and your jaws lock. Fall in love with someone that has you waking up wondering what simple thing they’ll do to make you fall more in love with them. But when you do fall in love, don’t force it, just fall.
