The Biology Behind Manifestation

Nov 2, 2023 | Mental Wellness | 0 comments

Learning how is key.

Many people still think that ‘manifesting’ things doesn’t work so it isn’t worth the time to learn more about it –  but did you know that there’s actually science behind this mysterious term? In this blog, we’ll discuss the biology behind manifestation. Keep reading to find out some of the reasons why we’re such big fans of learning how to manifest to increase your enjoyment of life.

Understanding Manifestation

Manifestation, the process of bringing desires and goals into reality through focused intention, has fascinated humanity for centuries. While it is often associated with spiritual practices, universal laws, like the law of attraction, important recent scientific research has shed light on the potential biological mechanisms underlying this phenomenon. In this article, we will explore the connection between intention and biology.

In order to manifest anything, you need to learn to  align your desires, goals, daily habits, and biology (yes, your biology).

When you are able to ‘energetically’ align these different areas of your life, you’re opening up the possibility of creating things beyond your wildest dreams. ‘Manifesting’ may seem like it’s not a tangible thing, but there actually is science that backs it up.

The Power of Intention

Intention science, the conscious and purposeful focus of one’s thoughts and desires, plays a pivotal role in the manifestation process, so it’s an important topic to discuss. Numerous studies have demonstrated the profound impact of intention on various aspects of human experience. The past few decades have played an important role in the development of our knowledge as it relates to Intention and manifestation, so let’s look at one pivotal study.

A study conducted by Ellen Langer and colleagues in 1981 exemplifies this phenomenon. Participants in the study were asked to visualize themselves as younger while they were placed in an environment designed to mimic the 1950s. The results were astonishing, with participants exhibiting improvements in their physiological markers, including blood pressure, vision, hearing, and cognitive function.

Could intention help manifest what we want to have for better well-being, could it be the health tool we’ve been looking for?

The Role of Belief and Expectation

While intention is extremely important, there are other forces at play. Belief and expectation, closely intertwined with intention, further shape the manifestation process.

Research by Alia Crum and Ellen Langer in 2007 revealed that participants who believed they were consuming a high-calorie milkshake experienced a more significant increase in a hunger hormone compared to those who believed they were drinking a low-calorie shake.

This study demonstrated how the power of belief and expectation can influence our physiological responses, changing the way our body functions and how we respond to certain stimuli.

The Work of William Tiller

There are many different researchers that have contributed to the manifestation space, but few of them have made as significant contributions as Tiller.

William A. Tiller, a physicist and researcher, made significant contributions to understanding the connection between intention and the physical world. In his studies, Tiller explored the effects of human intention on the properties of materials.

One notable experiment involved individuals directing their intention towards a container of water, resulting in measurable changes in its pH levels and electrical conductivity. This showed that the power of intention could actually change the physical world – pretty amazing, right?!

Tiller’s work also extended to the field of healing. In a   published in 1998, Tiller and his colleagues investigated the impact of intention on human fibroblast cells. The researchers found that cells exposed to intentional influence demonstrated enhanced growth when compared to control groups. These findings suggest that conscious intention can potentially influence biological systems at the cellular level.

Specialized Guidance

While the biology of manifestation is a complex and evolving field of study, recent research provides compelling evidence for the influence of intention on various biological processes. The studies discussed in this article, including the groundbreaking work of William Tiller, highlight the potential connection between conscious intention and physiological outcomes.

As science continues to delve into this fascinating domain, we are likely to uncover further insights into the profound relationship between mind, body, and reality.

Biological Implications

Are you curious about some ways that the body can impact what you want to manifest?

The Brain

The brain is central in your ability to manifest.

One of the most important details about the brain is that it’s continually learning. By forming new connections, the brain is able to adapt. Because the brain is constantly forming new connections, we’re actually ‘manifesting’ something all the time.

Research has shown that the brain has the ability to reorganize itself and create new neural pathways based on experience and learning; consider neuroplasticity, (Draganski et al., 2004). This means that by consciously directing our thoughts, intentions, and actions towards our desires, we can stimulate the brain to create neural connections that support manifestation.


We all know that sleep is important, but did you know that it can actually impact your manifestations? When we sleep, our brain cycles through information and processes the input it received during the day.

A study conducted by Diekelmann and Born (2010) demonstrated that sleep enhances memory consolidation and promotes creative problem-solving. This suggests that quality sleep plays a crucial role in facilitating the manifestation process. When your brain is well-rested and able to process information optimally, your cognitive abilities are enhanced which gives you the ability to gain new insights and perspectives towards achieving your goals.


If you’re wanting to manifest something while you’re stressed, then you may be working against yourself as your brain could be making negative associations about your goals.

Research has shown that chronic stress can impair cognitive function and decision-making abilities (Arnsten, 2009). In a study by Diamond et al. (2007), it was found that chronic stress impairs prefrontal cortex function, which is responsible for goal-directed behavior and executive functions such as planning and decision-making. Therefore, managing stress and creating a positive emotional state while manifesting is crucial for optimal brain functioning and increasing the likelihood of successfully manifesting your desires.


Whether you seek greater prosperity, improved relationships, or enhanced well-being, the training system in NEXTjourney programs has helped countless thousands around the globe to manifest the life they want – so simply. Many people began seeing remarkable changes within the first week.

It was developed by Mental Health Activist, Trauma expert, and Pioneering Researcher, Marlise Karlin, to include technology that rapidly changes negative behavior stopping the process of manifesting a life of greater happiness and purpose.

The programs were designed to activate a dormant Potential, spoken of in holistic traditions and in the latest groundbreaking science, that guides you to manifest a more fulfilling life.  As you cultivate a deep connection with yourself and the world around you – so many things begin to change.

One program in particular many people find super helpful is the OriginJourney. We’ve heard that many people love getting the personal insights. Through a combination of expert guidance, practical tools, and immersive experiences, this program empowers you to tap into the power of intention and manifest positive changes in all areas of your life.

So, if you’re ready to embark on a journey of adventure and self-discovery, then ORIGINjourney will give you access to a remarkably transformative journey that will inspire and guide you to living a more fulfilled life in alignment with your dreams.
