If I was to say the waiting game between thought and fruition is the most frustrating part of manifestation, how many of you would have to agree? Hands up! Yes, I see you.
It’s especially hard when you first discover the law of attraction, yet you’ve not quite built up an evidence bank of the universe having your back just yet. It’s hard to have faith.
It’s like being in the back seat of the car as a kid, knowing you’ll end up at your destination sooner or later, but not being able to help asking, “are we there yet, are we there yet?!”
Over the years, and many successful manifestations later, there are a few tell-tale signs I’ve noticed that crop up time and time again to show me the universe has it all under control.
Just when you start to doubt her, she’ll throw you a sign. Just when you want to give up hope, something will jolt you out of your fog and remind you that your time will come.
Today I wanted to share five of those moments, those synchronicities, those signs your manifestation is close. Starting with…
You Keep Seeing Signs & Synchronicities
When your manifestation – or something even better suited to you – is close by, you will start to see signs and synchronicities. These could be the form of repeating numbers, butterflies, rainbows, white feathers, even things that you associate with your spirit guides.
For me, I know that seeing 11.11 repeatedly, signals the universe is working her magic. Angel numbers come in the form of receipts, glancing at my phone at that exact time, my petrol gauge, or spotting it on the clock radio.
For you it could be song lyrics, it could be friends suddenly talking about what you’re trying to manifest, it would be an advert on TV, it could be a message coming through.
Only you will be able to understand the sign or synchronicity because it’s such a subjective experience, but when these arrive, the key is to catch yourself in that moment and remind yourself of the positive vibrations attached to your manifestation.
For a moment, sit and amplify that energy, even if it lasts just 2 seconds. It’s also a great reminder to consciously snap out of the less than positive mindset you might have found yourself in.
You Feel High Vibe
One of the signs your manifestation is close is you feel an excited energy in the air. You wake up with a spring in your step and realise, this positive thinking lark might just be working after all.
For me, when I reach this energetic state, it’s almost like a snowball effect.
However, the struggle most people have at this point is assuming it’s about to all come crashing down and sabotaging themselves riding on the wave of happiness.
How many of you feel like your vibes are high and you’re starting to see real traction, only to consciously or unconsciously press your self-sabotage button so it all comes crashing to the ground and you feel safe again in your comfort zone of doubt and negativity? I know you’re nodding right about now.
If this is you, then let me leave you with this thought – if you spend a lifetime never diving head first into the happy moments because you’re scared of it crashing down, then you’ll spend a lifetime in a mix of tough challenges, predicting tough challenges or worrying about tough challenges that haven’t happened yet. What kind of life is that?
Every time you feel like, this is too good to be true, force yourself to live in the happiness for a little longer. Then a little bit longer, and longer after that. Soon you’ll have built up a resistance to automatically pressing self sabotage as soon as you realise how happy you are.
The Universe Tests You
Now this may be difficult one to get your head around at first, but as you notice signs your manifestation is close, the universe will throw a test or two into your path.
You could be looking for love, for example, and every time you meet a frog, it’s the universe making sure you’re really certain on what you want from a partner. She’s making sure you’re crystal clear on what your desired qualities are, what you won’t accept and what you really want from a partnership.
This could be the same when it comes to looking for the perfect house, or your ideal job. You may have to overcome various obstacles to get to your manifestation, but this makes it all the sweeter in my opinion.
Of course, manifestations that come easy are amazing, but it’s not realistic to think everything in life can be handed to us on a silver platter. Welcome those tests and challenges into your life and know that they’re present for a reason and the universe is simply making sure this is the right manifestation to enter your life.
You’re No Longer Clinging On
I wrote a blog post recently about the reasons why your manifestation isn’t working and one of those reasons is the tight grip you have around what you’re trying to attract.
However, when your manifestation is around the corner, you’ll notice that you have a much more relaxed energy around it.
It’s like the age-old tale of as soon as you stop looking for love, it appears. It’s the same with the law of attraction – as soon as you notice that you’re not holding on as tightly as before, you’ll feel the energy of what you’re trying to manifest being just around the corner.
Moreover, the beauty of being fluid with your manifestation is that you can start to notice things that are even better than what you were originally trying to attract – and we know that if our girl the universe believes something to be even more powerful for our future, she’ll put that in our path instead.
Your manifestation won’t always be exactly what you’ve asked for, but by having a more relaxed approach to it, you’re able to see that much clearly.
If you would like to understand more about letting go of attachment, there is a great post by Gabby Bernstein to digest.
You Start To Make Room…Without Realising
When you start to shift your energy to that of a higher frequency, things that don’t align with this new vibration will start to drop away. This could be the shape of friends, contacts, jobs and clients, things that drain your energy and relationships.
But it makes total sense, doesn’t it?
If energy is attracted to a similar energy, why would Negative Nancy’s be aligned to you? Those that aren’t in line with your new vibrations will start to fall by the wayside to make room for different alignments.
So, if you start to see less of certain people or things drop away for you, even if it feels unnerving at first, know that this is simply to make room for something more aligned with your future.
The leaves dropping in autumn aren’t a bad thing, because we know something even better is coming in spring. Our energy is exactly the same.
