I’ve been in both camps and let me tell you, the manifestation camp is so much more enjoyable!
When you embody the manifestation life (your natural energetic ways of living), you’ll choose to believe in the miracles of the Universe regardless of what’s in your 3D reality right now.
But I get it, I used to dabble with manifestation. Setting goals on a new moon, starting new manifestation rituals, and then getting disheartened when magic didn’t happen immediately.
But here’s a TRUTH BOMB – your thoughts create your reality. You’re always manifesting based on what your energy is saying.
But are you consciously manifesting what you want?
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”Henry Ford
If you choose to say, “I’ll believe it when I see it”, you’re holding on to your old beliefs about how the world works and saying you won’t believe anything else until it’s proven otherwise.
But what you are TRULY doing to prove yourself otherwise? Starting, stopping. Doubting, comparing, judging others that manifest with ease.
There’s no judgment from me… I was there too!
Let’s unpack the 3 biggest reasons I see as a Mindset & Manifestation Coach as why manifestation isn’t working for you. So you can release what’s holding you back and realign with your dreamiest desires!
Do you have a goal? And if you do… do you know why you have it and what it means for you?
Let’s take money goals as an example. You set yourself a new goal – I want 10k months. You’ve seen other entrepreneurs celebrate this milestone and it excites you. So you set it as a monthly goal.
But have you truly understood why it excites you? Why do you desire 10k months? What does this mean for you? What will it enable you to do for yourself and others around you?
When you focus on a money goal and have no clarity on what this actually means for you, it won’t motivate and inspire you to continue consciously manifesting this goal into your reality when time passes by and when challenges arise (which they will for your highest good!).
Choose to get crystal clear on your goals so that they are meaningful and personal to you:
Give your goals purpose. When you’re connected to this energy, you’ll want to commit and continue with the manifestation rituals to connect with this goal and to attract it into your business with a fun, easy energy.
Goal Attractor Q: Have I set a meaningful goal that inspires me?
You might have a meaningful goal but you’re obsessed with it! And I don’t mean the fun, flirty kind.
All your thoughts, actions, behaviours, emotions are on this goal… but your focus and attention is on it not being here already. You’re focused on the lack, the gap between now and your manifestation. It feels needy as what you have right now is not enough.
Instead of focusing on this being your future reality, aligning yourself to receive with ease, and trusting this is coming… your energy feels clingy and desperate (we’ve all been there!!).
Refreshing emails, obsessively checking notifications, unable to focus on anything else, constantly thinking “come on… where are you?” or “I really need you, hurry up”.
Imagine that your goal is your soul-mate, destined for you. If your energy was desperate, needy, obsessive… would your soul-mate be attracted to you? Would it come to you with ease?
Likely not. Your goals are no different.
When you notice that your energy is feeling needy, choose to re-align your energy with abundance, gratitude and love.
Be appreciative of everything in your reality right now and be grateful for your manifestations before they arrive. Lean into trusting that your manifestation is on it’s way as you’re wholeheartedly worthy and enough right now, so there is no need to be impatient or clingy.
One of my favourite lessons from A Course in Miracles is: “Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait”.
Align your energy to trusting, loving and calm. And watch how you become a magnet to your desires.
You’re expecting your goals to arrive immediately. You feel like you’ve been proven right – “this doesn’t work” – so you give up, you quit consciously manifesting this goal. You give up before your goal has manifested.
Instead of quitting, choose to realign yourself! You could be on the edge of receiving your desire, choose to trust the process.
Manifestations come in divine timing. Meaning at the most perfect timing for your higher good.
It could be today, it could be in one month. It could be that there’s something even better on it’s way to you. It could be that you’re required to quantum leap in order to be an energetic match for your desire, and challenges may come your way first. As challenge creates growth and wisdom.
It’s important to DETACH from the logical restraints you placed on your goal – including when it will manifest. Choose to surrender to the Universal Laws and trust that your goal (or better) will manifest when you’re ready to receive.
Notice what I’ve said there… when you are ready to receive! And I mean energetically, physically, mentally and emotionally.
Let’s say you are calling in 5 soul-perfect clients into your new programme. Your marketing is saying “come and join me” but it’s not happening.
At this point, ask yourself – am I really ready to receive 5 new clients? Do I have physical space in my schedule to support them? Do I feel confident about supporting them? Do I want to support them over other priorities I have? Am I ready for 5 new clients?
Choose to dive deep and understand if you are truly ready to receive your desires or whether there is misalignment. Remember you’re an energetic being and your energy vibes are speaking louder than your words in the Universe.
Notice and then decide to take action. Create space – in every way necessary to feel ready to receive. Or if the goal itself is no longer in alignment, let it go and connect with a new meaningful goal.
Set a meaningful intention or desire. Know what you really want, why you want it and what this means for your life and others.
Work on releasing any beliefs, thoughts, emotions + inaction that’s holding you back from receiving your desire.
Choose to embody and be that version of you that is an energetic match to your desires.
Action is required to manifest an outcome. Be open to the guidance and take action on the inspiration that unfolds for you.
Let go to receive your manifestations. Detach from your expected version of events. Trust the process and surrender as it unfolds. Be open and ready to receive miracles in divine timing, trusting it’s for your highest good.
So there you have it – 3 reasons why manifestation isn’t working for you.
Do you resonate with these? If so, observe your lesson and choose to take action today to realign with your power. Remember your thoughts create your reality… and you have the power to always choose better thoughts, decisions and actions in alignment with your higher self.
