4 Surprising Reasons Why Manifestation Hasn’t Worked For You, Yet.

It’s frustrating, isn’t it?
You look around, and it feels like everyone who tests the waters of manifestation gets the desires they want.
And you?
Well, you’re kind of stuck.
Nothing seems to work.
Rather than basking in the joy of a new relationship, friend, or income…

You’re left with the thought that keeps haunting you: Why can’t I get my manifestation to work for me?
I get it.
It’s a crushing feeling when you put in your best and gain nothing in return.
Plus, you see others do it.
And it seems like everyone makes it look so easy.
“Just recite this, and wait for the sign,” they say.
So you go ahead and do just that.
Yet, for some reason, the results you seek keep eluding you.
Time and time again your life stays the same despite all the work you put in.

Well, this time it’s going to be different.
Because if you’re wondering why you’re not manifesting your desires, I’ll be revealing a few reasons.
Armed with this, you’ll gain a much deeper understanding of your situation.
So you can carve the right steps going forward.
Ready? Let’s dive in.

1. Your Limiting Beliefs Are Doing A Dirty Job

When it comes to giving you what you want, the Universe is looking at your inner beliefs. It’s not enough to just launch your desires to the universe. You’ve got to believe you deserve them. Every part of you has to completely feel like your desires aren’t far-fetched. That new relationship you’re looking for? You’ve got to believe it’s meant for you. And the new car? Well, that’s yours too. Getting your beliefs aligned with your desires is crucial in your manifestation journey. It’s easy to say you want or desire something. But our subconscious doesn’t lie. Negative self-talk seeps into your subconscious, affecting your vibrational energy. And constant complaints on how long it’s taking won’t help you much either. Rather, it will send mixed signals to the universe. Further delaying the results you want. Or worse, not achieving them at all. That’s why you’ve got to agree at a deep level so you give off positive vibrations. This allows you to be in tune with your desires so your manifestation doesn’t backfire.

2. Not getting specific enough

Ever heard of a spiritual shopping list?

You see, I love to think of manifestation like grocery shopping.

You don’t walk into a store without a detailed list of what you want.

It could be a mental list or a few items you put down on a piece of paper.

Either way, you’re not going in clueless.

Turns out it’s the same with manifesting your desires.

You have to create your own cosmic shopping list.

Where everything is spelled out in detail.

No general or blank statements that sound confusing.

For example, when you say “rich” what does it mean to you?

Is it $500k/yr or are you fine pulling in $200k/yr?

You’ve got to get clear on that.

Also, saying you want a “good partner” is not enough.

What’s good?

You’ve got to zoom in on the specifics of the kind of person you’d like to create an amazing relationship with.

How you approach manifestation is important in achieving success.

So I urge you to narrow down on key areas you’d like to improve in your life.

3. You’re keeping score

“With patience, nothing is impossible”
When was the last time you just sat back, relaxed, and let the universe do its thing?
Saying stuff like, “It’s been 2 weeks and nothing’s happened.”

Or “Why haven’t I received anything despite all the signs” shows a lack of belief.
And nothing’s going to ruin your chances of attracting your desires like disbelief.
So you’ve got to detach yourself a bit, and let the universe work for you.
If things haven’t fallen in place for you, give it time.
I know it sounds kind of cliche to say patience is important.
But that’s just how manifestation works so you’ve got to build your patience muscle.

4. Clingy Is Cringe-y (Even For The Universe).

Oh boy! This one’s a kicker.

Want to push something so far away you never get it?

Get desperate.

Become obsessed.

And I know you don’t want that.

It’s kind of like dating.

Acting desperate will only turn off the person you’re trying to attract.

Sure, you’ve got to believe you deserve your desires.

But there’s a big difference between belief and obsession.

Obsession is an unhealthy habit.

Because it reveals how doubtful someone is.


Because when we do things in excess, what we’re really saying is that we’re afraid in our subconscious minds.

And fear is like a weed that chokes our desires.

Preventing them from growing into reality.

So, you’ve got to learn to detach from outcomes so you don’t come across as desperate.

There you have it.

Really proud of you for making it all the way to the end.

By now, you should have a good understanding of your exact situation.

Along with a few ideas to get the ball rolling in your manifestation journey.

Does Manifestation Actually Work?

Can’t tell if manifestation is actually real?

Great, you’re in the right place.

Because this tiny corner of the world is all about sharing the latest findings to attract your desires.

You may have heard about manifestation, the law of attraction – and how they can hand you a bunch of goodies almost overnight.

So you’re probably here to find out if it’s just magic or something you should spend time on.

In other words, you want to know: “Am I going anywhere with this?”

That’s a smart move.

And I’m glad you chose me to help you figure things out.

If you’re stuck in a difficult situation or you recently came out of a harsh experience, then what you’re about to read will serve as an eye-opener for you.

Because we’ll delve deeper into the authenticity of manifestation.

And you’ll be faced with a surge of profound awakening into what’s possible.

What Is Manifestation?

Just so that this doesn’t sound like a geometry class, let’s back up a bit and get clear on what manifestation is.

This way, it serves as your foundation.

Making things easier for you to grasp.

Manifestation is all about using thoughts, affirmations, and beliefs to attract your desires.

Depending on who you ask, there’s a right and wrong way to manifest.

Some might require you to “connect to the spiritual world” first.

Others may tell you to write down your desires on paper in a specific way, and for a specific duration.

Like this one that says 33 times for 3 days straight.

But no matter what you go for, the general premise stays the same: Only you are responsible for attracting your desires.

And you must channel them through a healthy chunk of belief, and positive thoughts.

Nice things people say about manifestation

30 million.

That’s how many copies sold of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.

If you don’t know what The Secret is, it’s the book that took manifestation mainstream.

It gave it the life you see today.

And impacted the lives of ordinary people and celebrities alike.

On Amazon alone, it’s gathered more than 10,000 reviews.

In fact, here’s a glowing one I pulled out so you can see for yourself:

“I have lived my life by this book for the last 10 years. I can’t recommend any item on Amazon or any book more than this one. I saw how it changed my mom’s life so I decided to read it myself. I used to be poor and had bad relationships with my friends. I have my career together in my life has gotten better every single year. I’m so much happier I have so many friends and even have a girlfriend that lives by the book too.

And she’s pretty much the best girl on planet Earth. If you know anybody it’s going through a tough time get this for them. I’ve probably bought 10 books for friends throughout the years. It brought one of my friends out of a five-year depression. If you want to be happy and have everything you could ever imagine in life get this book”

Pretty cool, right?

Imagine if you could get anything you want the same way

You see, since its release, manifestation has become popular among circles of friends. And anyone looking to transform their lives.

People like Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, and a host of others are huge believers in manifesting your desires into reality.

And you can see Oprah’s talent at being a powerful manifestor shine through when she wanted a role in a movie.

For the movie, The Color Purple, she came up with a strategy to attract what she wanted.

How? By saying “I surrender all, I surrender all” she was able to release the need for control.

And put her trust in the universe.

A Scientific Breakdown: Why People Find Success In Manifestation

Those cool stuff you just read?

Well, they didn’t happen because of witchcraft.

There’s a wide collection of studies pointing to the effectiveness of manifestation.

And I’ll be sharing a few with you.

So you can make sense of the whole thing.

Like we said earlier, your thoughts have the power to create positive or negative things in your life.

When it comes to manifestation…

It’s a simple case of: Think good things, and good things will come your way.

But what does that even mean?

You’re probably wondering if there’s any research or scientific backing to all this.

(Who knew there’s a bunch of people who want all the science!!).

Well, turns out there’s a few:

Negative And Positive Loops.

Good things come to those who think right.

This is a fundamental area in manifesting your desires.

It’s the idea that you’re the source of creation for anything you want in your life.

This style of thinking is similar to the placebo effect.

A scientific experiment where the power of belief make patients feel better.

And it comes with no surprises.

Because positive beliefs prove to ignite good emotions, and release hormones or chemicals that are great for your body.

The placebo effect works by substituting a real medical treatment with one that looks original or real (think a sugar pill instead of an actual drug pill).

The patient is unaware of this switch, of course.

What happens is that the patient’s symptoms tend to improve in a number of conditions.

It’s a truly stunning concept.

One that gets people feeling better through their beliefs alone.

Now, that’s exactly how manifestation works.

If you can believe it, you’re gonna get it.

And you end up with a positive loop that continues to reward you.

Because the stronger your beliefs, the more aligned your actions are.

And the more the universe rewards you.

That’s why you must be convinced you deserve what you’re looking for.

Because your beliefs have the power to shape your world.

The Quantum Effect Theory

At your core, you’re made up of tiny molecules of vibrational energy.

Which means you’re just one big mass of fluctuating energy.

This allows you to be one with the world.

With this, everything around you becomes an extension of your core.

And what happens when something is a part of you?

You can get it to do whatever you want, anytime you want.

This quantum theory has been popularized by physicists all over the world, and is a vital reason why manifestation works so well.

Since manifestation works at deep levels, aligning your energy with the universe delivers the results you want.

Thoughts Create Things

Your mind, body, and soul are one.

What this means is that you can use your mind to send instructions to the cells and atoms in your body.

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s groundbreaking study showcased the importance of your thoughts.

He discovered that positive words and thoughts caused water to form beautiful crystals.

While negative words resulted in no or deformed crystals.

His conclusion?

Thoughts had a huge impact on water molecules.

Now, guess whose body is made up of about 70% of water?

(I’ll give you a second to think.)

That’s right, YOU.

Humans are largely water.

And if positive thoughts can form beautiful crystals from water…

Imagine how much better your life would be if you stick to positive thinking each day.

So there you have it.

Has the way you see the world shifted? Do you feel inspired?

Maybe fired up, and ready to manifest your desires?
