How Do You Know if Your Manifestation Is Close?

I know how frustrating it can be to wait for our desires to come to fruition. That waiting period can be a breeding ground for doubt and anxiety. But fear not because I have some tips and tricks that can help you recognize when your manifestation is on its way.

In manifesting, you do not know how long it takes for a desire to occur, and the longer it takes, the more likely you are to get discouraged. So how do you counter this? Luckily, there is a way you can know, or at least get some level of verification, that your manifestation is on the way.

Before a manifestation occurs you are likely to see meaningful coincidences (often called signs or synchronicities) that in some way seem to relate to your desire. Occurrences that are not the desire itself but that do seem to have a connection to it in some way.

Let’s look a bit further into why signs like this appear and how you should interpret them.

Signs Your Manifestation Is Coming

After impressing your desire on the subconscious mind, it’s likely that you will see meaningful coincidences (signs or synchronicities) that seem to relate to your desire but are not the desire itself.

We can divide this into two categories: Inner signs and Outer signs.

Outer Signs mean things that happen in circumstances, outside of our own minds. These are things external to you, such as people, events, coincidences, etc.

Inner Signs are things that appear within your mind, such as feelings, thoughts, intuitions, etc.

Outer Signs are more convincing than Inner Signs as they show actual change in the external world.

Seeing seemingly meaningful coincidencesFeeling of Certainty, Gratitude, Certainty, Etc.
Seeing ProgressDreams About Your Goal
Circumstances are “opening up”A Feeling similar to indifference/naturalness
Something Contrary HappensAutomatically Letting Go

I will now elaborate a bit more on these. First, let’s look a bit more at outer signs, as they are the best proof you have, to some extent, impressed the subconscious mind.

Signs or Synchronosites in the form of meaningful coincidences

Oftentimes, you see things that are very similar to our manifestation. For example, let’s say you’re trying to manifest climbing a ladder just for the sake of testing your manifesting ability.

Before you actually end up in a situation where you have to climb a ladder, you might experience weird coincidences, such as hearing people talk about ladders, seeing ladders in different places, seeing the word “ladder,” etc.

This means that the idea, to some extent, has impressed the subconscious mind. Obviously, In this case, a ladder is not an uncommon object, so perhaps these coincidences are not as convincing. But still, you can take it as evidence that at least something has happened within you.


This is a more obvious one. If you begin to see progress toward your desire, it’s a good sign that the idea has been impressed.

For example, if your goal is a certain sum of money, getting a pay raise is obviously progress toward this purpose.

Circumstances That Begin To “Open Up”

When the idea is impressed on the subconscious mind, it’s very likely that you will begin to see opportunities opening up to you.

Again, let’s use the example of manifesting more money. You may begin to see different ways you can go about creating an extra income. A clear, actionable road may open up to you, and you can, from where you are, see what you need to do in order to achieve your desire.

If you begin to see your world “open up,” keep doing what you’re doing. It’s a sure sign that you are successfully impressing the subconscious mind with your desire.

Something Contrary Happens

This is a less obvious and actually quite weird one. If you get the reverse of what you want or if blockages seem to emerge out of nowhere, it’s also a sign that your desire is coming.

Why is that? This is because it’s proof that your desire caused real movement in the external world. If you hadn’t tried to manifest your desire, you wouldn’t have gotten these opposing manifestations.

I have an article on why you may experience opposite results before your desire appears, which I recommend you check out after this one. In that article, I basically talk about how it’s almost like we are being “tested” and how blockages come because our limiting beliefs are being purged.

Positive Feelings

Oftentimes you will automatically begin to feel a lot of positive emotions, such as gratitude and relief, especially straight after imagining your desire. Along with this, it’s likely that you will feel a deep sense of certainty that your desire is on its way.

That being said, just because you don’t feel anything doesn’t mean that your desire won’t come. But, if you do feel these kinds of feelings, it is definitely a good indicator.


Sometimes you can experience dreams that have to do with you getting your desire. Having dreams is decent evidence that something has been impressed the subconscious, but it’s, in my experience, not in any way a guarantee that your desire will come.

Letting Go and a Feeling of Naturalness

You’ll often find yourself naturally letting go and sometimes even achieving a state of indifference or naturalness toward your desire. This often happens after you’ve imagined your desire on a consistent basis over a long period of time. It’s a good sign that the work has been given over to the subconscious mind.

Personally, when I feel this way, I still revisit and strengthen the desire in imagination just to be sure that my desire will manifest. It can be that it’s not letting go, but rather your mind giving up on the desire.

Do Not Rely On Signs

Even though signs are great, do not be discouraged if you do not see any. They do not necessarily always appear.

Getting to fixated on signs can lead you into an endless cycle of only getting more signs, while the desire itself never appears (I talk about that in this article).

To rely on signs is to make the same mistake as to rely on circumstances. Things manifest from within to without. If you rely too much on signs you will fall into doubt when none are appearing. For that reason, only take signs as useful indicators, but don’t rely on them.


Let me sum up the most important points we’ve looked at in this article.

Signs, and general movement in the outer world, are evidence that your manifestation is on the way.

There are outer signs. These can be very convincing as they show actual change in the external world. Outer signs are “meaningful coincidences,” random occurrences that seem to be connected with your desire in some way.

There are also inner signs where you get a natural feeling of gratitude, relief, certainty, or similar, resulting from you successfully having implated your desire in the subconscious mind.

Even if you cause a negative change in the external world, it is still a sign that you have the ability to change things. If you can make bad changes, you can also make good changes.

Do not become too fixated on signs, as they may not always be there. They are a natural byproduct of you imagining your desire, and this is where your main focus should be.
