Why Is Manifesting Not Working – 7 Reasons

So you asked the universe for your dream life but nothing happened? Relax! Today I will talk about manifesting not working. This happens to almost everyone at the beginning of their journey, but I’m here to help you get on the right path.

Your Energy Is Not Aligned With the Energy of Your Dreams

The first reason why your manifestation isn’t working can be very obvious. Yet you need to focus to realize it. It is energy… you need to vibrate at the same frequency as the energies of your dreams and desires. This is the basis of all manifestation methods.

According to the Law of Attraction, your energy attracts like energies. So if you want, for example, to find love, you should first of all be fulfilled with love from within.

To find love, we should start with love for ourselves.

It means that to find love, we should start with love for ourselves. Yes, it will take you a little time and effort as it is not the easiest thing to do (for some of us) but get it right and the universe and the universe will respond to your high vibrations and reward you with the person of your dreams.

Practicing self-love can be beneficial not only to finding your love partner but to other areas of life too. It can give you more abundance, money, and a better job.

You Are Too Obsessed With the Desired Outcome

The second reason must be familiar to many… it resonates with me for sure.

And truly, when you think about something, when you desire something with all your heart, it is difficult to let go of the process.

To be obsessed with your dreams will not make things happen overnight. It will only give you negative feelings and anxiety. The Law of Attraction also works the other way around – negative thoughts will not give you a positive outcome, but something else.

There is also another related universal rule. It’s called the Law of Detachment. The idea behind it is very simple. According to the Law of Detachment, you should not be obsessed with the outcome of your manifestation. Instead, you should let go and give the universe space to do its magic.

You Are Not Specific About Your Dream Life

The third reason why your manifesting isn’t working can be because you simply are not clear enough about what you truly want. For manifestation to work you need to be very precise with what you want. The universe should have a clear understanding of your wishes… otherwise, how will it know what to give you?

For example, if you want a new job you will need to write down (preferably in your manifestation journal) all the good things about that job like how much money you will get there, what people will be around you, and how it will make you feel.

Think and spend time on this part as all the details matter. More effort you will make now the better life you will have tomorrow.

If the problem is that you don’t know what you truly want, then you will need to dig into your subconscious level. The best way to bring your dreams and desires out of your subconscious mind is to meditate. We will talk more about meditation later on in this article.

The Timing Is Wrong

Sometimes we hope for our reality to change but we are simply not ready. We need time. we need time to focus on our feelings, to raise our energy levels, to go out of our comfort zone, and to let our dream life be ready for us.

Manifestation works in our favor and the universe always knows our dreams should come true. Sometimes good things happen when we least expect it.

Manifestation has its way. Sometimes that way is not the fastest, but it’s always the right one.

Better Things Are on the Way

Sometimes manifesting is not working because the universe thinks that it is not the right thing for us at that moment. It can know that better options are on the way.

The universe always knows better. We only need to focus on believing in it.

For example, you want to buy a car and you are looking for something particular but for some reason, there is nothing on the market that you like. Sometimes you can almost be desperate and think that the universe is against you. At such times, it’s better to wait and trust the process. Often, all of a sudden, you will be positively surprised. Maybe a better model of your dream car is launched, and you will be the one who will get it.

You can apply the same to relationships. A lot of times we have feelings for a person and we even imagine our life together and think that we cannot live without them. But the universe can show you that this person is here only for the lesson of loving yourself first. And your true life partner will be absolutely another person with whom you will be extremely happy.

The universe always knows better. We only need to focus on believing in it.

You Aren’t Taking Action to Manifest Your Desires

The most common reason your manifesting isn’t working because you are not taking action after setting a goal. Your world will not change if you will just sit home and do nothing. Your dream life will not happen out of nothing. Taking action is the key to success. Your reality is in your hands.

Let’s say you want to manifest money. You set your intention and you have good feelings about it. But for some reason manifesting isn’t working in the way you imagined. No one is knocking on your door with a case full of cash.

No one is telling you to move the mountains. Changing your life can be easier than you think.

So you are sitting there in your apartment and thinking that manifestation isn’t working and all of this is a joke. But let me tell you that for manifesting to work in your favor, you need at least to put a little bit of effort into it. Let the universe know that you are serious about your dream life and the money you desire.

The supportive actions can be easy but effective. For example, you can simply upload your CV online for the headhunters to see it. Or you can tell your friends about your intention to have more money and maybe they will know some well-paid job that is a match for your skills. Or maybe there is some lottery going on and your friends could have an extra ticket that will end up winning. You never know!

That being said, no one is telling you to move the mountains. Changing your life can be easier than you think. The universe is on your side.

You’re Not Being Grateful for What You Have

One of the reasons your manifestation may not be working is that you are not practicing gratitude.

Being grateful is directly connected to the Law of Attraction. Have positive energy, focus on good, and be grateful for the good stuff that you already have, and more good will come to your life.

I recommend practicing gratitude daily as it helps you to have more positive thoughts and positive energy. You can write what you are grateful for in your notebook or even in your notes on your phone.

Be grateful

The most important thing is to be consistent. Once you get in the habit of practicing gratitude it will feel like second nature.

Just a word of warning. Once you start practicing gratitude, strange things can happen.

For example, you will suddenly understand that your life is amazing, reality will start to change positively, all the negative energy around you will disappear, and you will sense that the world is on your side.

More Tips to Make Manifesting Work

If you want to make sure that you do your best to create your dream life, I have some more info and tips for you.

Keep Your Subconscious Mind Positive

High vibrations, good intentions, and a positive mindset will help you not only achieve what you desire but also the best outcomes in all areas of your life.

Life is not always easy, and it’s okay to feel disappointed at times. What’s important is to not dwell on these feelings. If you are faced with disappointment, the sooner you get back on your feet, the better off you will be in the long run.

The choice is yours here. Positive people will have it all, and the ones who are stuck in negativity… well you know. You need to feel it to get it.

Take Care of Yourself

Abundance in life is not only about money but health and well-being in general.

It’s normal that manifestation will focus our attention on external factors as we start to look for signs from the universe, but you should also remember to take care of yourself.

It’s very easy to forget about this, which is a mistake. The right way to manifest starts from within. To achieve something in this world, before anything else, we should take care of ourselves.

Make a Vision Board

One of the most common reasons for manifesting not working is that your energy is not aligned with that your dreams. Making a vision board can help you align these energies.

Vision boards work well in manifesting any dream that you may have. Vision boards and visualization in general work by helping you imagine yourself in a new life. Creating one will help your subconscious mind stay positive.

No matter how big your wishes and desires are… you can put it all on the vision board. By adding your dreams to the board, you push them to the top of your mind and give the universe a chance to see them.

Visualization is one of the most important tools in manifestation. Do not be lazy with it, try to learn how to enjoy the process. Once you get into it, the process of creating a vision board can be quite fun.

Create the board with all your desires. Use pieces from your favorite magazines or websites and your photos. You can get creative, and for example, photoshop your head into the car of your dreams, or place yourself inside your dream house.

Let your imagination lead you to abundance.

Meditate and Be In the Present Moment

Meditation is a bridge that connects your physical and mental well-being. It’s a spiritual practice, which has been used by people for thousands of years to clear their minds and to bring them to the present moment. Practicing meditation can also help with focus and get rid of any negative thoughts.

By meditating you can understand what you want, identify your desires, and let the universe know what it is that you truly want.

This will help you build a more clear path for your manifestation journey.

The Key Takeaway – Trust the Process

To get your manifestations working believe in yourself and the power of your manifestation, and trust that the universe has got your back. I guess you could say the same thing about anything else in life. No trust, no progress.

Sometimes life can be tricky but the one thing is for sure… the universe is on your side. And most importantly, you are on your side. How could it all not work out in the end?

If you believe in yourself and the universe, soon you will have it all, and look back to all those times you doubted yourself with a big smile on your face.
