Can Everyone Manifest? Or Is It Only The Lucky Few?

Can everyone manifest? Is it only some “special ones” that have been gifted with this? That’s the question I want to address in this article.

This is the short answer:

Each one of us possesses the innate power to manifest. We are constantly shaping our experiences, often without even realizing it. Manifestation is an intrinsic part of our being, and impossible to avoid. The real question then becomes: are you manifesting your life consciously or or unconsciously?

To learn how to consciously manifest, read “Complete Guide to Manifestation for Beginners.”

Why Manifestation Works for Everyone

If we take the stance of the New Thought philosophy, Manifestation is possible because all individual minds are the expressions of the universal mind. The universal mind exists subconsciously to everyone. It is the substructure of the individual. Those who learn to deliberately manifest, are those who learn to cooperate with this deeper layer of their being.

Think of the universal mind as a limitless dynamic energy that exists unconstrained by the physical world we live in.

We are always directing this energy in some manner by the thoughts and feelings we choose to dwell on. The challenge is in learning to regulate our thinking in order to direct this power toward desirable ends.

How Does Manifestation Work?

Manifestation is about learning to wield the power of the universal mind, which exists subconsciously to us. It is that “subconscious mind” existing below our conscious awareness.

Since this power exists within ourselves, the things we repeatedly think, feel, accept, get emotional about, believe, conclude, and so on mark themselves as suggestions in the universal mind. The universal mind then takes these suggestions and transforms them into the reality we experience. That is how thoughts hold power.

A man accepting and identifying himself with the thought of being “a loser,” will find that it is becoming a reality to him. Whatever he tries to do, he finds that he is doomed to fail, which then further confirms his own conclusion that he is indeed “a loser.” Now, it may be an unintentional act on his part, but, like any physical law, the law of manifestation is no respecter of persons.

The solution to this man’s problems is found in his thinking. If he substitutes the idea of “I am a loser” for “I am successful,” this new idea would over time find its way into the universal mind. And from here on forward, the man finds himself now succeeding. Perhaps he attains a level of motivation, self-confidence, and focus he had never had prior, and perhaps new opportunities present themselves that simply weren’t there before.

Changing things around like this is not necessarily easy to do. As mentioned, for those who are new to manifestation and want to learn this, I recommend you read my “Complete Guide to Manifestation for Beginners.”

If Everyone Can Manifest, Why Do So Few People Do It?

Manifestation is not just wishful thinking — it requires meditation, learning to give “self-suggestions,” discipline, time, attention, patience, and perseverance. Many give up early, discouraged by the lack of results or skeptical of the process altogether.

The truth is, learning the skill of manifestation demands dedication. Trial and error and a commitment to pushing through failures until you see success is required.

While everyone has the potential for manifestation, few pursue it consciously.

Try Manifestation Yourself

For those who want to learn manifestation, and to experience it firsthand, I recommend you do this 30-day manifestation challenge.

It involves combining a state of meditation with the affirmation of a generic goal like “accomplishment” or “success.” If you succeed in this, you will have made a change within yourself. You will find that the thing affirmed is actually becoming a fact. Even if results are minuscule the first 30 days, small results will still instill the belief that there might be some truth to all this.


Manifestation is a skill everyone has, showing us that our thoughts can change our life. But, not many people use it because it’s hard to believe and some don’t believe it all.

For those interested, I recommend you check out my already mentioned beginner’s guide to manifestation.

If you’re struggling with manifestation, that’s perfectly natural. The key is persistence. Keep adjusting and refining your method. That is how any skill is developed. Feel free to use the 30-day manifestation challenge as it is a good starting point.

I hope you found this article helpful. Thanks for reading!
