So you’ve set your manifestation intention. You’ve done the visualizations or or made yourself a sweet little vision board. You’ve written it down and held all that energy in your heart space trying to harness the energy of already having it.
But then comes the hard part.
One of the most popular questions I get when it comes to manifesting is “When will my manifestation come true?”
Or, more accurately, “OMG I’ve already done alllll the things! Where on earth is it??”
Like I said, this is the hard part! And it’s easy to see why: when you’re excited, you’re also a bit impatient. You want things to just happen–right now–and at the very least, you want some evidence that they’re actually coming true.
Because of course, no one–not even the best psychic–can tell you this!The only true answer is: it depends.
I always say, manifesting only works as well as you do. That’s because so much of it is actually under your control. Think about your limiting beliefs, your emotional state, your ability to trust. All of these things are in that little brain of yours–not in the hands of the Universe.
Manifesting is actually easy AF. But we’re the hard part. So successful manifestation is really just all about the art of getting out of your own way.
It’s not hocus-pocus. It’s mindset and positive psychology and–the big one–actually just picking something to focus on! (So many people don’t even get that far!)
To make a long story short, no, I can’t tell you when and where your manifestation will arrive!
Sometimes when you’re losing faith even the smallest hint from the Universe is enough to keep you going. But it helps to know what to look out for! Which is why I created this guide for you.
Want to know what those common manifestation signs are? Keep reading to get the lowdown on seven common types:
7 Signs Your Manifestation Is On Its Way
Manifestation Sign #1:
You’ll Receive A Test
As you might already be well aware of, many times on the road to successful manifesting also holds a test. But rest assured, this has nothing to do with your worthiness! It’s more about testing your readiness.
The Universe just wants to know just how serious you are about your desires before allowing the real deal to show up. So think of these moments as the Universe’s way of asking “So for real dude, are you sure you want this?”
Tests can take many forms. Sometimes things will appear to go wrong before they go right. Other times, you’ll get something that is closebutnotquite to what you really want to manifest. (Frustrating!)
But all of those situations are just a sign that you’re on the verge of making a breakthrough. You simply need to keep the faith through the darkness and turn away from anything that isn’t quite right.
This can be tough to do in practice but just remember that the Universe has already heard your desire. It’s already happening. You just need to hold space for when it does.
Manifestation Sign #2:
You See 1111 (or 111)
All repeating numbers (or angel numbers as they’re also known) have important meanings. But the numbers 1111 have a special symbolism that relates to manifestation. The numbers themselves literally represent two doorways: one for this world and one for the next.
That’s why the number 1111 symbolizes a literal connection with the Universe itself and more importantly, an opportunity that’s waiting for your. So seeing 1111 or 111 is a definite sign that the Universe is already hard at work for your desires. Pay attention when you notice this number sequence and be thankful when you happen to see it!
Manifestation Sign #3:
You Experience Synchronicity
Synchronicity is one my favorite manifestation signs! We’ve all experienced moments like this. Think about that time when you thought about an old friend and the next day they added you on Facebook. Or maybe once you were inspired to listen to an old favorite song and for the next week you hear that same song absolutely everywhere.
Those little signs are all evidence that the Universe is already playing with you! It’s just a very magical way of saying hello and reminding you that you’re always being supported. So pay attention to when those synchronicities start piling up faster and faster! That’s a sure sign that you’re on the right track.
Manifestation Sign #4:
You See Your Wish Everywhere
Sometimes when you want to manifest something, you’ll start to see it literally everywhere around you. For example, say you want the latest iPhone. It’ll suddenly seem to be on TV, over the radio at the grocery store, sitting across from you on the train. It’s not your imagination in overdrive and it’s not a mere coincidence!
Sometimes our reality gives us glimmers of what’s about to come to us. So these moments are visual proof that you’re manifesting your wish into your reality (even if it hasn’t quite arrived just yet). So get when you notice them! It’s a sure sign your manifestation wish is about to become your reality.
Manifestation Sign #5:
Stepping Stones Appear For You
Stepping stones are part of the path that is leading you towards your desire. But what does that mean, you might be wondering!
To expand on the synchronicity idea, the right people/places/things are being brought to you at exactly the right time! But they don’t always look exactly like our manifestation intention. Sometimes you’re just receiving one part of the bigger puzzle. So it’s your job to take the bait, knowing that your dream still lies at the end of the pathway.
If something shows up in your reality that appears to be taking you on a mission, then get happy and take the hint! It might not all make sense right now but often that’s the best way for magic to find us. Trust that the Universe definitely has plans for you and it’s simply up to you to take the hint.
Manifestation Sign #6:
You Receive Signs From Your Guides
Your spirit guides are always working with you, although you probably don’t notice their presence most of the time. But when your manifestation is just about to come true and you’re in danger of losing faith, they might just choose to make an appearance.
If you’re new to this idea, don’t worry! A ghost isn’t about to jump out of your closet. ????
Instead, our spirit guides like to send us little “love notes” or pop up as a voice that we hear in our mind. Perhaps you find feathers or coins, or maybe you randomly hear a song that has some lyrics that strike your heart. Or perhaps you seemingly hear two words, that hold some inspiration or knowledge. Whatever it might be, just be sure that you’re paying attention so you don’t miss the magic that’s close at hand.
Manifestation Sign #7:
You See A Rainbows Or Butterflies
Do you have something that reminds you of happy times in your past? It’s common to associate butterflies or rainbows (or unicorns or rabbits etc.) with moments of good fortune and happiness. Pay close attention to these things, even if they’re don’t always show up in the expected form! (For example, a picture of a rainbow instead of an actual rainbow etc.)
For example, Gabrielle Bernstein makes no secret about her love of owls. In her book The Universe Has Your Back, she shared a story that she was considering buying a house in upstate New York. But she was determined to see an owl first to know that it was the right decision. I won’t spoil the story for you but she did see the owl and in turn purchased the house!
When you are manifesting something into your world, you can feel free to ask for a sign like Gabby did. Or you can just become aware for the signs that might be popping up for you. (Hint: they change for different times in our life!)
BONUS Manifestation Sign:
You Just Feel It
The ultimate manifestation sign? Simply knowing that it’s going to happen of course! However this sign is up to you, not the outer world which is why it’s a bonus.
Achieving your manifestation often isn’t all fireworks and champagne corks. Often receiving our wishes goes hand in hand with a quiet confidence and sense of knowing.
There’s simply no doubt or worry left in your mind because you feel your intention with your whole heart.
We all want to achieve this state with manifesting–because of course, feeling comes before having! So your feelings can be the biggest sign of all!
Because when you already have that strong inner belief, you can also safely release your expectations. You’re so close to being there that you already surrendered to the process and that’s the real trick to manifestation. When you’re really feeling it, you truly know it’s all becoming real.
So tell me: what signs of manifestation have you noticed lately? What usually happens to you before you manifest?
I hope this post gives you some peace of mind on your journey to manifesting! Always remember that you are truly a powerful being and so much of manifesting is really up to you. The biggest obstacle on your path is always your own self-doubt. So no matter what happens, stay strong and tune into your vision and eventually you will eventually get there.
