10 Steps To Manifest Your Parents To Say Yes
It is not impossible to get your parents to say yes to what you want. You just have to be creative in your approach and be willing to put in the work.
Here are 10 steps that will help you manifest your parents to say yes.
1. Know Exactly What You Want and Why
Why do you want a new phone so bad? Is your old one broken, or do you just want to keep up with your friends? The first step in manifesting your parents to say yes is to be crystal clear about what you want and why you want it.
The best way to gain clarity is through journaling. Or you can simply ask yourself a few questions.
Here are some of them:
- Why should your parents say yes?
- How will you feel if they say yes?
To get the universe on your side, go as deep as possible into why you need what you need, and answer all the questions above.
2. Decide Which Parent To Approach
If you usually ask both your parents at the same time, that’s probably the reason why you get a lot of NOs. You know your parents better than anyone else, and you know which one says yes the most, so to get the universe on your side, help yourself first.
Be aware of how strict or lenient your parents are, and ask the parent with the most odds of saying yes.
3. Stay on Their Good Side
You can’t ask to go out immediately after getting an F on your midterms, it’s unreasonable, and there’s a 99% chance you’ll get a no.
So knowing the best time to ask is one of the most important things you should consider. If you want to ask for a new phone, show them that A+ you got in maths, and you’ll most likely get a yes.
The psychology behind it is that they’ll feel obligated to reward you when they see you putting effort into doing something. If you want to ask to go to a friend’s, explain how you’ve finished the laundry or cleaned up your room and watch them feel happy saying yes.
4. Plan Your Request in Advance
Imagine asking to go to a sleepover the night of the sleepover. Of course, it’ll probably end in a big, fat NO. Again, manifesting works only when you let it work.
Ask up to a week before so they can have time to ponder on your request. And if they refuse, you have time to convince them otherwise.
Parents are used to saying no, so getting them to say yes is like pulling teeth. But here’s the trick, if you make it convenient for them to say no, they’ll say no. But if you plan well and give them no excuse to say no, you’ll probably get a yes.
Asking too late will give them the excuse that you asked too late, so you need to be strategic.
5. Visualize the Result
Visualization is an important part of manifestation because it lifts your spirit and gives you positive juice. How glad do you think you’ll feel when your parents say yes? What would you do immediately after?
Imagine everything there is to imagine and map the whole scenario in your head. To effectively do this, find a quiet place to meditate.
You don’t need to put your palms together and cross your legs. This exercise aims to concentrate hard enough on the outcome so you’ll be motivated and positive. The happier you get, the better the universe will work in your favor.
6. Eliminate the Thoughts Holding You Back
Maybe you’ve received a truckload of NOs in your lifetime that you never put in the effort to ask again because you think it’ll be a waste of time.
Manifestation works when you know and eliminate limiting beliefs. It’s not easy, but you need to get rid of all the reasons why you think your parents are going to say no.
Remember that your thoughts control your outcome, so if you believe they’re going to say no, that’s what you’ll probably get.
7. Say Positive Affirmations
Affirmations are great for eliminating your limiting beliefs. They are positive short statements that can lift your mood and give you the courage you need to ask your parents.
If you’ve never used affirmations, here are some effective ones.
- The universe always has my back.
- I am strong and intelligent and will unapologetically go for what I want.
- I love my parents so much, and they love me back.
- I deserve a, yes, and I’m letting go of any thought that says otherwise.
You can come up with your own power sentence; just ensure it makes you feel good about yourself. If you do it right, it’s an underrated confidence boost.
8. Ask Confidently
Affirmations can give you a little confidence, but you need to supplement them with a lot more. If you shyly ask your parents for permission to go out, you’ll seem as if you can’t take care of yourself, giving them a reason to forbid you.
The more confidence you have, the safer they will feel when they’re letting you go somewhere. Even if you aren’t asking to go somewhere, confidently state why you need what you need and answer any questions they may have.
9. Tell Them What They Stand to Gain
Parents and humans, in general, are more inclined to grant you access to something when they have something to gain from it themselves.
- If you’re asking them to buy something you want, save up some money and tell them you’ll chip in. This works every time.
- If you want them to get something for you in the store, tell them you’ll tag along and even carry stuff for them.
- If you want to go to a friend’s house for a sleepover, explain how they’ll have some time alone without you wreaking havoc in the house.
10. Don’t Think Too Much About the Outcome
This is the last step toward a successful manifestation. When you overthink the outcome before you even ask, you create unnecessary anxiety and stress that’ll hurt your positive energy. Just go with the flow and trust the process.
Now that you know how to manifest your parents to say yes, remember that you only need to be optimistic and trust the process. Eliminate negative thoughts, be confident, and you’ll be able to get a yes from your parents easily.
