Here are my step-by-step tips for Manifesting New Friends:
Decide that you want to make new friends. Seems easy enough, but instead of requesting new friends from a place of loneliness, I want you to ask the Universe from a place of joy.
Start your request with something like this: I'm so amazing and awesome and I want to exchange love with people who are also amazing and awesome."
Get clear on what type of relationship you want to have with your new friends. Do you want a professional friend that you can jam about work with? Do you want a friend that you talk to on the phone and text message with? Do you want a friend who you can meet up with regularly? Do you want a friend who is into the same stuff you're into? Do you want an accountability buddy? Get crystal clear about the types of friendships you want to form and then you will create them.
Some years back, I wanted to manifest a friend to go to Ani DiFranco shows with. Someone I could carpool with. Someone who I could have a soulful conversation with. Someone who was fun and into the music. I made my request to the Universe and that is exactly what I manifested. For almost two years, we went to every Ani DiFranco concert in the Bay Area.
She had a car and was upbeat and easygoing. While we were in very different places in our lives, we could jam on anything from music to work to relationships. It was an awesome friendship. However, I only saw and communicated with her around the shows and that was the exact type of friendship I needed at the time.
The Universe will give you what you ask for, so make sure you're crystal clear about what you want before you broadcast your request to the heavens. In doing so, you will receive exactly what you desire AND curb misplaced expectations.
Next, position yourself to actually meet the type of friend you want. Put yourself out there and you'll be amazed by what you'll receive in return. I met my concert pal by posting in the carpooling section on the website of one of venues Ani was playing at. Holy unicorns, I am so glad I did.
Not only did I make a new friend, but because my pal was so timely when it came to going to shows (something I am not), we'd arrive early enough to catch the opening acts. One of those openers wasSean Hayes, who is now one of my most favorite musicians. Blessings all around.
Be your own best friend. If you've been following me for a while, you know that I am an advocate for being your own best friend. This point also goes back to step #1. If you really want to attract soulful and meaningful friendships, then you have to a soulful and meaningful relationship with yourself. Choose to be your own ally and support in the present moment.
If you are requesting a new friend from the mindset of loneliness or lack, you will most likely attract friendships that will only amplify your feelings of loneliness and lack.
Forgive and release all the friendships from the past that did not serve you well. Forgiveness is your time to heal your old wounds. It is not about the other person. It is about you feeling good as you move forward in life unencumbered by fear, pain, anger, hurt or resentment. Make a list of all your old friends and one by one, forgive and release them. Also know, all the love you've given out over the years will be inevitably returned to you.
Lastly, get excited and joy-full for the new friendships coming your way. Imagine yourself kickin' it with your new friends. Send these new friends love now. Telepathically, share with them what you will offer them in the friendship (biz connections, compassion, time, a well-stocked wine fridge, the perfect flourless cake recipe, good jokes, zen-like calm in stressful situations, etc..). Tell them you'll have their back and be there for them.
Most importantly, believe that the Universe is conspiring to bring you the exact friendships you need at any given time in your life.
