When Manifesting Goes Wrong

Staying out of the how is one of the most important rules of manifesting. When things don't go as planned, though, we're usually irritated because reality doesn't match the fiction we made up in our heads.

That is, once again, only an addendum to the how. So, if reality has thrown you an unpleasant surprise, do your best to forget about it. There are a billion methods for you to get what you want in this Universe! This is a good time to start wondering about the story you've been telling yourself. Return to your manifestation and the story you (inadvertently) crafted to see what attachments you can remove! It's virtually always possible to let go of anything.

This Isn't The End

One recent epiphany I had was that your story only stinks when you're at the end of it. We all know that the hero of the story needs to wade through a lot of nonsense in order to get what they want, whether we're watching movies or reading books. It is for this reason that we watch movies or read books! What would the point be if there wasn't a story?

So keep in mind that you are the protagonist of your own story. But you're still working on the conclusion! This doesn't have to be the final chapter–unless you want it to be! So, instead of feeling defeated at the conclusion, consider refocusing your energy on the trip. Doesn't it make you feel a lot better?

It's a million times better to realize you're in the middle of your own story as you move through life! So don't worry if it hasn't worked out yet; it will. (Obviously!)

If you can't hang on to that belief, try this one: a “no” in the moment doesn't always indicate a “no” in the future! So please don't give up on your dream.

Keep Having Fun

My unbreakable manifesting rule number one is to have fun. Always! Yet, when I witness manifestors sweating and worried about their manifestations, I can tell they're no longer having fun! Rather, they've bought into the tragic story or the terror. They've lost faith in themselves and in the process, which isn't a pleasant feeling!

So keep in mind: it's difficult to create anything that feels nice if you're not having fun doing it! If you've fallen into a worry spiral, take steps to get yourself out. Take your thoughts away from the situation for a bit. Return to your self-care routine. Keep asking yourself what you can do right now to make yourself feel better.

Feeling good in the moment will always reconnect you to your power and return you to flow! So make having a good time a regular part of your manifesting regimen.

Is manifesting a person wrong?

In most circumstances, manifesting a specific individual is a bad idea for a variety of reasons, but the bottom conclusion is this:

This is nearly universally true in the second circumstance, where you don't know someone yet want to bring them into your life.

The first situation, on the other hand, isn't entirely risk-free. Even though you know them and get along with them, keep in mind that you don't know them as a partner or a buddy. It's happened to me a few times that I'd get along well with someone in social events, but when it came down to it, they weren't what I needed.

Here are a few compelling reasons to reconsider manifesting a specific person:

What should you not say when manifesting?

You must use the correct words to bring about your desires if you want to manifest them. You may never achieve it if you use the incorrect words.

To help speed up the manifestation process, keep telling yourself positive affirmations and speaking about your aspirations with positive phrases.

Decide exactly what you want and say it aloud, but never say anything negative about it or about yourself! Because of how powerful thinking is and by default, the world will start offering it to you if you do this.

By simply thinking good thoughts about what we want, the universe will show us more of those things in return.

If we consistently put ourselves down with our words, the universe feels compelled to fill our life with more negativity because we believe that's all we deserve.

How do I know if I am manifesting correctly?

However, these numbers could appear everywhere in your life, so be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to any signals that may be trying to contact you.

You feel like you already have your desire

Feeling as if you already have your want is another clue that manifestation is near.

This sense of peace before manifestation indicates that you are completely aligned with your desire and that nothing is preventing you from manifesting it.

Though you suddenly feel as if your goal is already yours, this is a solid sign that manifestation is on the way and will arrive in your physical world soon!

You have a gut feeling it is on its way

You may not be able to articulate why you are feeling this way; you simply “have a sensation.”

If you have this sensation, know that it is your intuition catching up on small cues from the Universe that your conscious mind cannot.

When you receive a sense that you can't explain, it's a hint that manifestation is approaching. You can rely on it.

How do I start manifesting?

To be more precise, you receive what you think about most. Any favorable or negative thinking. My colleague used to start every prayer by asking for the “highest and best,” as if you could ask for the “lowest and worse” by accident. That used to make me laugh. It is undoubtedly a stage of the manifestation process to be able to articulate your objectives precisely—but it is also critical to recognize that things do not grow any worse than they are; you may simply not be perceiving them as they are.

Energy flow determines your ability to produce the life you desire—how readily you receive and how quickly you let go of what doesn't serve you. Allowing conscious ebb and flow of energy in relation to the things you want is a talent that takes time to develop; for example, you'd think that letting go of a job that doesn't pay well, makes you sad, and doesn't make you feel good about yourself for doing it would be simple.

There is a grieving process that must be followed. We are often attached to things because of our beliefs and philosophies, rather than the object of our attachment—for example, being a lawyer because you believe it is prestigious. Consciously embracing flow in your life also necessitates that you have all of your receivers cranked up to eleven; that you are ready, willing, and able to accept and manage the things you claim to desire.

We maintain a constant state of preparedness as human beings, which means we always work with what we have while waiting for what we want…ultimately with grace and thankfulness. Here are some pointers to get you started.

Start where you are.

As I previously stated, things may appear to worse before improving; nevertheless, you simply did not see how awful things were. Self-honesty is the first step toward achieving your goals.

For instance, if you want money, work hard with the money you already have. Are your objectives in line with your resources? Do you stick to your budget? Do you treat your money with respect? Do you desire money because you believe you are lacking in other areas? Taking stock of your motive for the object of your inquiry can go a long way toward assisting you in obtaining it.

You can't get what you want, if you don't know what you want.

After you've investigated your motive, you may begin to comprehend why you're in this situation and devise a plan to fix it. This stage will require some creativity, as well as thinking outside the box about what you desire.

Write down your top five desires first. Then come up with five persons you know or don't know who own these items. Choose the next logical level of acquisition for yourself if you have a financial goal, and focus on persons you know or people in the public view who have the amount you want to generate for yourself. Then, do your homework—learn everything you can about these people's behaviors.

Leave it to the Universe to figure out how to acquire it. Keep in mind that in its logical evolution, anything is possible.

Manage what you have and you'll get more.

When you concentrate on how to achieve something, you become process-oriented, which is useful if you want to teach someone else or explain how you did it. If that isn't your objective, concentrate on making the best of what you have.

If you want more love in your life, concentrate on receiving it well and giving it to others. If you want to save money, pay your bills on time, put money in your savings account, and only buy goods you genuinely desire (or, better yet, need)…no frivolous spending. It's the Universe's natural alignment to amplify what you're already doing for yourself.

The Universe responds to actions first, then thoughts.

The manifestation train comes to a halt in the physical world. It's where concepts come to life, are torn down, or are reborn. Because the physical world moves at a slower pace than the other creative levels, an idea must be in sync with other aspects of your life in order to manifest.

If all you think about is desiring love in your life, feeling lonely, and isolating yourself from others and judging them, the Universe interprets this as “I'd rather be alone, thank you.” Which, in turn, attracts selfish, judgmental, or wary people who you don't trust or want to be around in your life.

Your thoughts create your actions.

This is where your thoughts start to matter; they guide you through every move you take.

It goes like this: images and patterns in your soul lead to your mind. The more you become conscious of your ideas, the more profoundly you will be engaged in your emotional expression of your thinking patterns, which will lead to your choices, and finally manifestation.

We have the ability to nourish, change, or erase what is already there at every level in between. Whether we are conscious of it or not, we do it every minute of every day. As a result, as you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings (but not allowing them to drive your decisions), you will see clear benefits.

Having said that, when it comes to figuring out what you want, achieving it, and living with it, patience and self-acceptance are your best friends. When you embrace each level of manifestation, it becomes a lovely experience.

Do manifestations always work?

! Sometimes you wish for something and it comes true with surprising speed and precision. Is it just a case of bad luck? Maybe every now and then! I'd compare it to “going with the flow” most of the time. You get out of your own path when you learn to track and unfurl your own process, when you align your choices with your actual nature, and when you recognize and act on synchronicities. You open up possibilities for the intelligent world to shower you with blessings when you honor your needs and reclaim the power of the internalized oppressor! It's just that those blessings might not look like what you had in mind….

What happens when your manifestation is near?

You'll start to notice signs and synchronicities when your manifestation – or something even more suited to you – is close by. Repeating numbers, butterflies, rainbows, white feathers, and even things you identify with your spirit guides could be examples.

For me, witnessing 11.11 on a regular basis indicates that the cosmos is at work.

Angel numbers can be found on receipts, in my phone at that precise time, on my gas gauge, or on the clock radio.

It could be song lyrics, friends suddenly talking about what you're attempting to manifest, a television commercial, or a message coming through for you.

Because it's such a subjective experience, only you will be able to interpret the sign or synchronicity, but when these occur, the key is to catch yourself in the moment and remind yourself of the pleasant energies associated with your manifestation.

Sit for a second and enhance that energy, even if it's only for 2 seconds.

It's also a good reminder to intentionally snap out of any negative thoughts you've been having.

Can you manifest 2 things at a time?

Manifesting multiple things at the same time. Technically, you are manifesting everything you are seeing and experiencing right now, so you may certainly make many changes at the same time. It's all about changing your perspective on life, thus the number of aspects you desire to modify is irrelevant.

How does the 369 manifest method work?

Writing down what you want to materialize three times in the morning, six times during the day, and nine times in the evening is part of the 369 method.

This method gained traction on TikTok (of course), with videos using the hashtag “369method” accumulating over 165 million views. It's not difficult to discover people on the app who claim the approach has helped them manifest new relationships, significant sums of money, and other things.

Nikola Tesla, a renowned inventor, was the first to believe that the numbers three, six, and nine were potent numbers for manifesting in the twentieth century. “He believed these sacred numbers were the key to opening the universe,” spiritual adviser Diana Zalucky tells mbg.

Aside from the numbers, the 369 practice follows the law of attraction, which holds that we attract what we focus on.

Shauna Cummins, a hypnotist and author of Wishcraft, adds that focusing on what you want, especially on a regular basis, may help your brain “discover what it's looking for, and thus more likely to magnetize your desires into action.”
