5 Manifesting Mistakes

Are you doing one of these? #4 is the one that people always seem to make.


Why Can't I Manifest?

Have you ever tried to manifest something and it just did not work?

You read some articles online, maybe watched the Secret, thought really hard about something and then, waiting with some apprehension and excitement, nothing happened?

Then you gave up on it, chalked it up to being some sort of internet pseudoscience, 'woo-woo' crap and moved on with your daily, comfortable routine - all the while still feeling a little stuck and unfulfilled?


I did this for years until I finally learned how to really embrace manifesting and understand what mistakes I was making along the way. 

I know I am not alone, as this happens to sooo many people due to mis-conceptions about manifesting on the internet.

So often you see on the internet people talking about ‘oh I’ll just go manifest it” or they make grandiose claims of closing their eyes, visualizing and getting something in the snap of a finger.

Unfortunately, this is not how it works for 99.9% of the people in the world.

And the sad thing is so many people just give up on it and truly miss out on the POWER our mind has in shaping our reality with the power of manifesting. 

If you are one of those people who have dipped your toes into the manifesting world only to be disappointed, but want to give it another shot - or if you are a total newbie to manifesting then this is a must read article!


Before we dive in – if you are ready to up level your manifestation game and learn how to REALLY implement it into your life, then sign up for my FREE 5 day Manifestation Challenge where you will be guided through the basics (backed by science of manifesting) and how you can begin implementing it into your life today to get one step closer to living your dream life.  


Five Reasons Why Manifesting is NOT Working For You.


Mistake # 1. Your self-limiting beliefs are getting in the way

The #1 reason why manifesting does not work is that our little fear gremlin takes over when we try and picture a different life for ourselves. We get lost in our self limiting beliefs and learned behaviours from our past keeping us stuck in our patterns. We start picturing another life and then do not give ourselves the chance to actually BELIEVE we can have it. Our subconscious mind kicks in and keeps us stuck. 



Mistake # 2. You are not being clear enough

So often we make fleeting manifestations: I wish I was rich, I wish I could travel more, I wish I could leave my 9-5, I wish I could find love. Although these are the overarching dreams and desires, you have to go deeper and get clearer on what you want. By getting clearer you are providing a destination for your life. Just like you put the destination on a map - this is the destination for your dreams. 



Mistake # 3. You are not attaching FEELING to your manifestations.

Science has shown the importance of the brain heart connection. In fact, the heart sends more information to the brain than the brain does to the heart. So, if you are not feeling the emotions attached to your desires then you are missing out on a key aspect of manifesting. Being able to visualize your ideal life and the FEELING you will have when living it is one of the keys to successful manifestation.



Mistake # 4. You are not taking aligned action

Manifestation is only one piece of the puzzle. The next piece is actually taking small aligned action steps. Unfortunately, you can’t just sit on your couch and wish that Oprah will come knocking on your door. Not going to happen. You have to start putting yourself out there, taking itty-bitty steps towards alignment. Not sure where to start?

Mistake # 5. You do not understand the science behind it and still don’t believe it can work

As humans we have an innate desire to understand things. To have science explain the un-explainable before our minds will accept it as ‘truth’. By understanding how personal energy works and starting to view your world through an energetic lens, you can begin to shift yourself in a fundamental way, which is one of the first stepping stones for making manifestation work for you.


Manifestation or as the scientific world like to call it – mental rehearsal really does work.

However there is a science to it and by understanding and having a framework to start at, you will begin to really be able to harness the power of your mind and manifestation to begin living your dream life.
