Below I break down my experience of dealing with acne, and how I used manifestation techniques to heal my skin. These are just what worked for me, everyone is different, but I really encourage everyone to be open to this and see if it resonates for you.
The struggle was super duper real
My acne started appearing as an adult out of NO WHERE. I had no clue what had caused this sudden eruption of pimples, but it came aggressively. I felt like I was in a battle with me against my skin.
I tried different diets, and different remedies. I spent so much time in the mirror fixated on my pimples. I felt so FRUSTRATED and so POWERLESS.
One night, my boyfriend was tired of my feeling sorry for myself. He just told me to STOP GIVING IT SO MUCH ATTENTION.
That's when something clicked in my head.
"Omg, why didn't I think of that?"
1. Stop giving your acne any attention
What you put your attention and energy on, expands.
So the key here is to not give your acne any attention. I stopped sitting in front of the mirrors for hours looking at pimples, trying to squeeze them, or do anything to them. I stopped putting anything on them. I just completely left my face alone.
2. Focus on the future you want.
I stopped giving my power away to some little red dots on my face. And I decided that I was going to create the skin I wanted.
Writing is a powerful manifestation technique. It's important to focus on writing as if you already have the clear skin you want.
You want to invoke as much emotion as possible because emotions are what puts you in the vibration of what you want. So really sit and feel how great and confident you feel now that you have crystal clear, glowing skin.
When I was manifesting my clear skin, I wrote daily in the morning and at night just how grateful I was that my skin was so clear. I would write about how I felt so confident that my skin was radiant, and how I'm so glad that I don't even have to wear makeup if I don't feel like it. This was all before it became a reality.
Now that you've stopped paying attention to your current skin conditions, it's time to visualize what you want it to look like. Imagine looking in the mirror and seeing and feeling beautifully smooth skin.
I used Pinterest boards to get really clear on the type of skin I wanted. Girls with smooth, glowing skin graced my boards and I would look at them for a minute, then close my eyes and imagine looking in the mirror and seeing that. It's important that if you do decide to do this exercise, that you don't end up with feelings of envy or jealousy. Because that is not the vibration you want to be in. Instead, know that the skin you want is what you're getting, and feel grateful and worthy of having what it is you desire.
A big part of attracting what you want is feeling like you already have it. And what do you feel when you get something you've really been desiring?
Write it down, speak it out loud, meditate on the feeling. Whatever it is you choose to do, just let overwhelming gratitude wash over you. Allow yourself to believe that you have what it is you desire, that you are worthy and deserving of it, and therefor you are so so thankful.
4. Let Go
The most difficult part part of this process is LETTING GO.
You have to let go of the feeling of wanting, needing, begging, asking. Because if you already have something, or you know it is meant for you, you don't keep begging or asking for it. Its already yours!
Let go of the idea that you are someone who always struggles with acne, or that you are cursed with acne forever. Instead, embrace a new idea, and a new identity that you are someone who always has really smooth, low maintenance, naturally gorgeous skin!
Letting go is easier when you trust the process.
Have faith that your body is capable of healing on its own. Trust that this new reality is already on its way to you and that you are worthy of this new YOU.
Trust in your own powers, that you can and will manifest this, and that the Universe is working with you to create the world you wish to live in!
STOP giving acne any attention - this means don't pick at them, don't put products on them, and try not too look at them!
FOCUS on the skin you DO want - I used Pinterest boards, meditation, and journaling
BE GRATEFUL for your soon-to-be clear skin because you know its going to happen!
LET GO of any old beliefs about you being someone who always struggles with acne.
TRUST that your body will heal on its own, that your true higher self is coming through
Tips on manifesting your clear skin
Those are the general steps I took to manifest my clear skin. But here are some additional tips that I think you should know in order to quickly manifest yours!
How long will it take?
For me, I started seeing my skin heal within the first month of switching up my mindset and taking charge of what I wanted. I would say in a few months I really noticed a big difference. I still have zits here and there now, but it's usually a sign that something's up.
Listen to your body
Your body has ways of giving you a clue as to what is going on inside.
Now that my skin is mostly clear most of the time, when I have breakouts I try to see what my body is trying to tell me.
Is it hormones, stress, a bad diet, or dehydration? I will ask myself what is out of balance and I can start to address that right away.
Believe in your body & in miracles
It's important while you're healing that you remember to LOVE your body. So often we are mean to our bodies, we think we are at war with our bodies, and that we are not on the same team. So in turn that's what we end up attracting is more chaos inside our bodies.
But if we give our bodies loving & healing energy, our bodies are capable of miracles. Nature is made to bounce back even after really stressful & damaging times. And we are part of nature so we also have that capability to heal as long as we believe in that ability.
Find the lesson & be grateful
I'm grateful for this difficult time I had with my skin because this was a lesson in how truly powerful I am. I was looking at things outside of myself to fix my problem, when what I really needed was to look internally at the way I was thinking about myself.
I am also grateful for my acne when it shows up because it shows me when I have imbalances in my body that I can correct. It makes me feel more connected to my body like it communicates with me and I understand.
