Picture the scene: You’ve got your vision board proudly displayed and set your intentions for what you want to manifest into reality. You’re wearing your crystals in your bra and adorning your wrists with healing crystal bracelets. Positive mantras are popping up on your phone as divine reminders throughout the day and you’re seeing 111 everywhere you go. To top it all you’re bloody excited about finally manifesting your dream into reality.
As time goes by the excitement and enthusiasm begin to dwindle. Why? Because that dream you want to be your reality doesn’t appear to be happening. That beautiful space that you’ve created for that dream is filled with absolutely nothing. Absolutely sweet FA.
When you find yourself in this position it can be really disappointing and frustrating. However, don’t despair because I have 8 reasons why your dreams are not manifesting into reality.
Are you crystal clear when you set your intentions? Being crystal clear is not just about declaring what it is that you want. It’s about declaring from the heart with absolute confidence and certainty that what you are asking for is what you want to manifest into reality. Your reality. Now, I know that setting a clear intention is pretty obvious, yet it is amazing how many people (and I am guilty of this myself) will set vague intentions. Vague intentions that they kinda, almost, maybe want to manifest into reality and then wonder why it is that their intention hasn’t manifested yet. The thing to remember is this:
This is so important because the Universe responds to your feeling, vibration, the energy.
One tip is to get yourself a gorgeous notepad and pen that you use for writing your intentions. Also, write some actions that you can take towards manifesting your intention, ideally on a daily basis. They say that the physical process of writing down your intentions is very powerful.
Wanting what you want is one thing. Believing and knowing that you deserve what you want can sometimes be another. What do I mean? Well, say you to want to manifest a new, kick-ass high-flying job that pays your highest salary to date. However, on the inside, you do not believe that you are worthy of attracting such a job into your life and this unworthiness contradicts the words of your intention, which can cause the energy to slow or become blocked.
Now, you’ll know if you have feelings of unworthiness with help from a coach, psychic or energy healer. You can also tune into yourself, notice the feelings that come up in your body when you think of manifesting the job of your dreams. Do you feel a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach? Do you feel uncomfortable or uncertain? How you feel will give you a strong indication of how worthy you feel of manifesting your dream into reality.
3. Inner work
This carries on from point number 2, yet could relate to other limiting beliefs or stories that you have related to what it is that you want to manifest. For example, you want to manifest a new job yet you were treated badly in your last few jobs in that industry. Therefore, you carry this belief that working in that industry brings bullying, stress and unhappiness. If you still subconsciously are hanging on to the old story and resentment that’s the energy that you’re manifesting from. That’s the vibration that the universe will be responding to. So, take the time to check in with yourself and do the inner work. Either working with the angels, an energy healer, counselor, coach or psychic to help you to do the inner work and rewrite those old stories. However, the point is: Not to shy away from dancing with your shadows because on the other side is where the magic will be found. The magic is the exact thing that you have been searching for.
In the same way, your vibe attracts your tribe, it attracts or repels everything else too. I mean, be honest, are you consciously managing and directing your energy or is your energy just a little (or a lot) all over the place? More to the point, is your energy aligned with your dreams and intentions?
Many people focus on the words and the thoughts. Feeling they’ve got to say positive words and have positive thoughts. Yep, that’s great! However, the universe responds to your energy and heart. And what can happen is that your thoughts and words say one thing, yet your heart and vibe says something different. Take the time to check in with yourself and get into the habit of managing your energy, rather than it manage you.
5. Head fuck
This comes about when you’re obsessing over the outcome, constantly asking for and stressing over the signs you’re getting or not getting. Just thinking about this creates a sense of stress and overwhelm. And guess what? Stress and overwhelm is the energy you add to your intentions. This also contributes to you feeling ungrounded and unsettled in your energy. In the process, you are literally holding onto your intentions and squeezing the life out of them, whilst simultaneously fixating on the outcome.
In order to get around this try letting go, surrendering or releasing the need to control and fixate on the outcome. By doing this you will be able to guide yourself away out of your head which allows you the space to reconnect with your heart and your soul. This opens up space for the energy to flow and Divine guidance, as well as your intuition to kick in. As you know, when you are in your head this is where you tend to over-analyse and other think things which is what creates that disconnect, as well as funky energy.
“Dreams don’t work unless you do.” – John C Maxwell
Often people like the idea of change and manifesting their dreams, yet they’re not committed to taking the action to making it happen. Resulting in their dreams remaining as dreams. People who fall into this bracket tend to:
- Not follow through on requests or commitments that they make
- Play the role of victim, blaming something or someone else when things don’t go their way
- Wait for things to happen or procrastinate
One thing that can help is an accountability partner who will motivate you to take action steps. Writing down your actions and taking action steps, no matter how small, each day will align you with your dreams. Over time, you’ll see these steps add up and you’ll get divine sparks of inspiration that eventually all lead to the manifestation of your dreams.
Sometimes what you’re asking for isn’t in alignment with your soul and God and the Universe have something planned for you that is so much better. Better than you could ever have imagined. This tends to happen a lot with manifesting romantic partners. Some people get fixated on manifesting their ex back or a specific type of guy. In the meantime, better guys or opportunities to maximise their capacity to fully love themselves, as well as step into their power present themselves only for you to reject it all.
So, be aware that your soul, God and the Angels know what you need best, tune in and allow yourself to be guided. If it’s not working out as you expected it to trust the process and be open to something or someone better for you.
Also, check in with yourself to ascertain whether or not you are manifesting from your heart and soul. You can often find that you are trying to manifest that super-glam job working for a coveted brand when in reality, working for that brand wouldn’t bring the sense of joy and fulfillment you seek on the inside.
Having faith and trusting is the final reason. The saying is that “I’ll believe when I see it” yet, in law of attraction circles, it’s a case of believing, trusting and having faith first. Something that can be tricky when things are not happening quick enough or you’ve got inner work to do before you get to the prize. Yet faith and trust really help to boost your confidence which helps to align you with your dreams and desires.
Doing the inner work helps to raise your faith and trust levels because you’re shedding the shadows which can influence the fear and doubt. You build trust through surrender and strengthening your relationship with yourself and the energies around you, whilst continuing to take divinely inspired action.
God and the Universe already know what it is that you want. In fact, your soul dreams, the dreams that you make when you connect with your heart and soul, are there ready to manifest into reality. All you need to do is align with that energy because you have everything within you to make your soul dreams your reality, even if you have to dig past the crap to get to that magic it’s all there, lady! I believe in you, you’ve got this!
