Top manifesting mistakes that keep you from getting what you want

When I tell people about how I make certain manifestations, sometimes they get blown away. My friends will often laugh and just say that “if you want it, it will literally show up on your door.” Which is often the case.

I wasn’t always able to manifest with such effortlessness. And even though sometimes things come easy and sometimes it requires a lot more work on my part, the principles for manifesting are the same. Today I want to talk about the common mistakes so many people make when they are wanting to manifest certain things in their life and how they block the magical manifestations from coming through to them.

First however, I want to show you a recent example of something I manifested, so you have an idea of what it can look like once you get in tune with doing this. Just like learning to swim or ride a bike, it’s the same with manifesting. It’s an inner awareness that can be learned by practicing.

I’ve been wanting to get into real estate investing recently and it’s mostly been an idea of something that would happen, sometimes soon, but I hadn’t taken any action on it or decided that it would be a focus. I read a few books and did some research but other than that I hadn’t really started the process.

A few weeks ago, due to an unusual amount of snow where I live, we were snowed in and without power. With little to do, I sat with one of my boys under a blanket, looking at the fireplace and meditating.

I was pondering about my goals for real estate investing and came up with some bold goals. My mind tried to tell me: “This isn’t possible, you’re just getting started and you’re too naive. Most people can’t do this in such a short period of time.” Then my higher self took over and told me that, “of course you can do this, you don’t need to know how it’s going to happen, just decide that it will.” (By the way, this is a great recipe for success in manifesting!)

Then, I moved on with my day. I focused on how to stay warm and get food on the table during the snowstorm. I had a call scheduled with a real estate investor connection I had made later that day, and almost forgot that we were scheduled to talk, because I was too concerned about staying warm and focusing on basic survival things that happen when you realize you’re without power in freezing temperatures without knowing when the power will be restored.

Nonetheless, when the lady called me I was cooking on my (gas) stove so we had something to eat. Mid-cooking, I took the call, asked my son to take over the cooking and I was ready to speak with her. We had a great conversation and I told her about my real estate investing goals, telling her I was eager to get started.

Just a few days later, the same person to reached out to me with an email that had the following subject line: “My intuition told me to send this to you first!!!”

This lady, who has been very successful in real estate investing, has a bestselling book, is a mentor to others who want to start in real estate investing and who has a substantial network or clients, mentees and real estate investing professionals for some reason chose to send this opportunity to me first. I was humbled.

I got first dibs for what turned out to be an amazing deal that only had ONE more spot for investors as one of the current investors had failed to come up with a certain amount of money, which left this last minute deal open.

We soon got on the phone and she told me that when the deal came across her desk, there was this strong voice inside of her that told her this deal was for ME. It was as if the angles told her she couldn’t offer it to anyone else.

She didn’t know that I teach about manifesting, but in her email she said: “I sense you are a powerful manifestor, because your presence was felt very strongly.” (It just so happens she also teaches about manifesting so she could literally feel what was happening!)

After about a 48-hour crash course in real estate investing by doing my own research and speaking with a friend who does this kind of investing to analyze the investment proposal, I signed the deal 3 days later, only 8 days after I made my big goal.

I would lie to you if I said I wasn’t scared as I signed the close to 150 page legal document that laid out all the reasons why I could lose it all, singing off on any liability etc…etc.

It’s easy to get wrapped up in fear, but I’ve learned that letting fear stop you is the best way to stay stuck, so I welcomed the opportunity.

What I didn’t tell you previously, was that when I set those goals, in my mathematical mind I realized that I was going to need some really high paying deals in order to be able to make my very bold goal – something that this one investment certainly offered!

I asked, and the Universe responded. A deal that had been fully funded suddenly had one open spot – reserved by the Divine – for me 🙂

Every time you make a decision to do something, an opportunity will come your way to help you realize your goal. The problem is that often, we’re not able to see the opportunity.

It’s like your subconscious mind will discredit the opportunity and you may not even see it as an opportunity at all.

As Napoleon Hill said: Opportunity often comes disguised as misfortune or temporary defeat. I have found that there is so much truth and wisdom to his statement.

I could have easily said things like: This is too good to be true, it must be a scam. I could have said that it was too risky to invest so quickly with someone I didn’t have more history with. I could have gotten caught up in the idea that I could lose it all (which is always a possibility when you invest). But my soul told me to not get wrapped up into fear and to accept this wonderful opportunity to get started in this type of investing.

Also, the more I researched about the deal, the more solid it looked. I didn’t find any cracks or reasons for concern at all. And the people involved in the deal have a great track record and are very well versed in the kind of work they do.

Basically, my gut was clear from the beginning and I knew I had to invest, but I was doing the research to convince my mind that it was okay to proceed and to get my mind on board.

When opportunity strikes, do you take it? Or do you let it go, thinking it’s too good to be true, or let fear take over?

Even though I haven’t started listing the top manifesting mistakes yet, take this as the number one lesson before all the other reasons listed below. Because failure to see the opportunity is so common and such an easy way to get stuck.

If you ask, the Universe always answers. But are you willing to answer the call?

Below are 10 more common mistakes people make when manifesting, and how to avoid them.

  1. Failing to make a clear decision

The first step to any manifestation is to make a decision to do whatever it is you want to do. Unless you make the decision, the Universe has nothing to work for on your behalf. You are confusing the Universe and it doesn’t know what you want or what to give you.

Sitting on the fence about something you want to do will not make you any closer to that goal. Waiting to make a decision to see if circumstances change first, is the wrong way to go about it. The circumstances will start to change when you make the decision. The decision always comes first.

If you fail to make your decision you will stay stuck, because the movement doesn’t start until you actually make the decision. The decision comes first, then the Universe will create circumstances for that to happen. Remember, by way of Universal Law, if you have a true desire for something, the way to make that desire come true must also be available to you in this very moment as well. This means that if you want it, you CAN have it. In fact, you are meant to experience it. But make sure it’s a true desire of the heart and not your ego or fear talking when you make a decision.

2. Thinking you need to know how the manifestation is going to happen

This is one of the biggest reasons why people don’t live their dreams or manifest the life they want. They get stuck thinking they have to know HOW it’s going to happen. But that’s not your job. That’s the job of the Universe.

If you think you need to know how something is going to happen, your mind will get in the way, because likely you don’t see how, or understand how. Well, guess what! It’s not your job to know how. Your mind will get in the way and the mind comes up with reasons why you can’t and the manifestation will fail before it really even begins, because you start to buy into that doubt.

Instead, surrender the how to the Universe and trust that the Universe can and will pull through for you. Actually, that is the job of the Universe.  The truth is that the Universe will always answer any request you have. The problem is that most people energetically push it away.


3. Not listening to your intuition or taking inspired action

Once you make a decision to create something, you will get inspired to take some specific action. The key here is to listen to your inner guidance. Sometimes your intuition will guide you to do something that doesn’t seem logical. You may wonder why all of a sudden you are called to go to a certain place, or call someone. Follow your guidance. It’s likely the Universe is trying to connect you with the right people to help your desire to manifest.

Trust your inner guidance and do what you are asked to do, even when it seems strange, is out of your comfort zone or scares the crap out of you. In order to get what you want, you will most likely need to get a little uncomfortable and stretch yourself.

4. Being attached to the outcome and insisting that your manifestation comes through a certain person, place or thing, or in a certain way.

Once you ask for something, the Universe is finding the best possible solution for your manifestation to be manifested in physical reality. It will literally do millions of calculations behind the scenes to help you get what you want. A mistake many people make is that they are staying too attached to the outcome.

For example, a business owner is on a call with a potential client and insists that the sale must come from this particular person. If you’re doing this, you’re attached to how it’s going to happen and you are not in the right energy to receive. In fact, you’re actually pushing what you want away from you with your energy.

Release the need to know where and how the manifestation is going to come from instead and trust that what you asked for is coming to you – no matter what – even if it’s not through the person you’re speaking with and even though you can’t see it yet. You’ll be surprised at how much easier things start to flow.

5. Obsessing and staying in pushing mode

Another very common way people block the manifestation from coming through is by obsessing over it. If you’re looking for an online sale through your funnel, you may be checking your email constantly to see if it came through. This kind of action will actually block the manifestation, because you’re constantly checking, this energy is actually a sign of doubt.

Just like when you plant a seed, you don’t dig it up every so often to see if anything is happening to it. You let it sit and you trust that in due time, the sprout will appear above the soil. The same is the case when you are manifesting. Let it go and trust. The Universe will surprise you with your gift when you least expect it.

6. Putting limits on your manifesting

When you are asking for something, you may unintentionally set limits on the manifestation. This is very common. For example, you’re a business owner wanting to manifest a certain income in your business. You know you really want to have a 10K month, so you ask for that.

The Universe may have easily have given you a 15K or even 50K month, but because you only asked for 10K, that’s what you’ll end up manifesting.

There’s an easy fix here, just say: I’d like to manifest 10K or more this month, and expect magic to happen.

7. Taking away other people’s right to choose and not coming from a place of the highest good for all.

This is a HUGE one and hopefully something that you are aware of. You never want to manifest something that involves a specific person, as everyone has free will. If you want to attract a client, it may not be the person you’re speaking with and it’s not in everyone’s highest good for you to break their arm trying to convince them.

True magical manifestations serve all parties involved at the highest good for all. The person who prayed for someone like you to show up, will likely be the one who shows up.

You might think you know what’s for the highest good, but you don’t and it’s not your job to determine that.

Remember, everyone has free will. The law of karma will ensure that anyone who uses their manifesting powers in a wrongful way will pay the consequences for such actions.

You always want the manifestation to be the embodiment of the highest good for all, and it needs to be a win-win for all the parties involved.

8. Saying that you want to manifest something but secretly telling yourself it won’t happen.

This is a big one. If you don’t believe you can do something, or that something is possible for you, you won’t manifest it. There needs to be at least 51% faith that you can do it. I truly believe that lack of faith is the number one biggest reason why most people’s manifestation efforts fail.

Check in with yourself when making a decision. Do you believe you can do this? If you don’t believe you can pull it off by yourself, do you believe that the Universe will support you in making this happen for you or with you? If the answer is no, start working on your beliefs. Remember, you get to choose your beliefs and you can change them if they aren’t serving you 🙂

9. Not paying attention to your energy.

A lot of people talk about manifesting as if it’s just something that has to do with your mind and your thinking, or even about taking massive action, but there are so many energetic aspects that also play a role when you want to manifest something. Yes, your mind matters greatly, but don’t forget about your energy.

The Universe is energetic. Have you ever tried to put two repelling magnets together? You would have noticed it doesn’t work. They keep pushing each other away no matter how hard you try.  In the same way, you need to be an energetic match to what you want to manifest or the manifestation is not going to happen.

Remember that your subconscious mind is “sub – concious” meaning you are not aware of what’s there, it is beyond your concious awareness and a complete blind spot. The same is true for what’s going on in the energy field in your body, which also play a huge role in your ability to easily manifest the reality you want.

You may be saying consciously that you want something, but your subconscious and your energy field is actually repelling exactly what you want from an energetic perspective. (Think of the magnets!) If this is the case, your energy will speak louder than words and your thinking and override your conscious mind, which means you will be unable to manifest what you want.

How then can you know what’s in your energy? The quick answer is, whatever you see in your life, because that’s what your energy created. Life does not happen to you, it happens from you and is a mirror of what’s going on inside of you.

10. Forgetting about your emotions.

Your emotions will tell you how your energy is doing. Basically, emotions are energy translated in a language you can understand.

When you’re sad, you’re in a low vibration, and you’re not in a place to manifest wonderful things. Staying in a high vibration and positive emotion will make you more aligned with attracting things that will make you happy.

However, another common thing I see and hear people talk about is “just be happy and fake it til you make it”. Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but you can’t fake being happy. Your energy never lies.

Most people have suppressed energies and emotions in their energy field from a lifetime of “sucking it up” and not being allowed to or not having learned how to express their emotions in a healthy way. No amount of “trying to be happy” is going to solve your situation.

Every uncried tear is creating an energy block within your energy field. That block will stay there until you let that tear out.

Band-aids don’t work. You need to rip off the band-aid and look at what’s underneath. (What you find may not be pleasant but it’s an important part of your spiritual journey. It takes courage to rip off the band aid and deal with the issue at the core.)

Not until you’re willing to deal with these suppressed emotions at the core, to release them from your body and energy field, will that underlying core energy change. But when you do let this go, and when you’re willing to do the inner work to get there, you can become a manifesting superstar – because you become an energetic match to the things you want to manifest, so those things will just flow to you without much less effort on your part.

 Like my friends tend to say: It will just show up on your door 🙂 You can read more about how suppressed emotions keep you stuck here.
