3 Unexpected Reasons You’re Manifesting Slowly (And How To Solve Them!)

3 Unexpected Reasons You’re Manifesting Slowly (& How To Solve Them!)

Do you wish to uncover the reasons you haven’t manifested your desires yet? This post will open your eyes.

I will also share with you the solutions you can apply, as well as the following:

  • Why you may not truly want your goals
  • The reason why only you can limit yourself
  • How negative expectations lead to disappointment

Ready to begin? Let’s continue.

3 Hidden Reasons You Haven’t Manifested Your Desires

The three potential reasons that an individual has not manifested his or her desires are that they aren’t ready to receive it yet, they have an issue with feeling undeserving, and they lack faith and certainty. 

Why Your Goals Haven’t Come To Fruition Yet (3 Top Reasons!)

If you want to know why your desires haven’t come true yet, here are three possible reasons.

#1 You might not be ready yet

You might not be ready yet

Do you feel ready to receive the manifestation of your desire?

If so, it will come to you since you’re in excellent receiving mode.

On the other hand, if you aren’t, then that hesitation will delay or block it.

That’s why you need to be honest with yourself.

If you’re not ready yet, then ask yourself why.

It would also be helpful to write down the answers, look at them, and feel the reasons behind them.

It’s important that you resolve the hesitation – which is usually caused by three things:

  • You’re afraid to go for this desire.
  • You believe you don’t deserve it (This will be discussed in-depth in the next section.)
  • You don’t really desire whatever it is you think you do (Perhaps it was a fear-driven push from the ego saying you needed to have something or else.)

One more thing.

Even if you did manifest your goals, you won’t be able to recognize the opportunities being presented to you.

In short, you won’t be able to receive it properly.

That’s why readiness is very important.

Moreover, if you’ve written down your reasons, review them after a couple of days.

This is a good time for you to draw out hidden issues.

Hindsight often uncovers fears, control issues, and other problems that you may not otherwise catch.

Anything that you face and put to the light of consciousness always clears itself out.

Those that you leave in the background will grow.

You should also avoid criticizing or judging yourself.

You cannot be wrong – you can only grow.

Just be true and open.

That is all that is required.

#2 You’re struggling with feeling deserving

You’re struggling with feeling deserving

The second reason you haven’t manifested your goals yet is that you don’t feel like you deserve them.

And whatever you feel, whatever you vibrate, you attract.

This is a law that never fails.

It must happen.

So, if you feel undeserving, you will get the conditions that correspond to that feeling.

Your feelings of deserving either add to or remove from the energy that brings about the manifestation of your desires.

If you desire a certain thing, but you do not expect to get it, then that state and vibration will bring about the people and events that ensure that you don’t receive it.


It’s because the universe’s natural language is vibration.

A negative expectation, even if attached to a positive desire, makes up the net vibration of “disappointment.”

Here’s the truth:

You deserve everything you desire!

Your Creator does not wish to hold back anything from you.

Giving is Its way.

Only you can hinder yourself.

So, if you don’t feel deserving of your goals, work on healing that feeling.

The following will also help you resolve the feeling of non-deserving:

  • Taking a deep dive within
  • Affirming your worthiness
  • Learning more about yourself

Just like the first item, I also recommend writing things down.

Note exactly how you feel about this issue in relation to this goal.

Also, take a second look after a few days and see if there are things you would like to add.

#3 You’re not 100% sure it can happen

You’re not 100% sure it can happen

The third potential reason you aren’t manifesting yet is that you lack faith and certainty.

Both of these are necessary parts of creating success or anything else for that matter.

It is that which gives the universe a go-ahead to do as you wish it to do.

Let’s talk about faith first.

It is simply a belief in the direction of your desires.

It is the opposite of a limiting belief, which is a constant thought, which goes against your goals.

It, therefore, stops you since you say, “I would like that, but I can’t have it.”

And as I mentioned earlier, it is only you who can limit yourself.

That is the amazing extent of your power, which is created in the image and likeness of The Source.

However, faith, despite all its benefits is only necessary when you have doubts.

This is because it is an attempt to cure it.

It is good, yes, but not as powerful as certainty.

For the one who knows, faith is unnecessary.

But, what exactly is certainty?

It’s knowing surely that what you hold as true will manifest.

You do this even in the face of contrary evidence,

You know that you are your own truth.

Additionally, you cannot become a state without certainty.

For example, you will find it hard to be happy if you are unsure about feeling this way.

You also cannot create goals without certainty, not only in their accuracy but also in their coming to reality for you.

So, how do you solve lack of faith and certainty?

First of all, believe in the capabilities of your Self.

It is designed to never lack anything, for it has it all already.

It is also indestructible.

Second, recognize that in the past and present moment, a lot of things are already made possible because of your faith and certainty.

Most of the time, this passes your conscious awareness.

This does not mean that they don’t happen.

When you pick up a glass of water to drink from it, you know without a shred of doubt that you will not fail to lift it and sip.

The thought does not even occur to you that you may not be able to drink the water.

That is the level of faith and certainty that you should have in yourself.

You’re also not alone in this.

The laws of the universe and the capabilities of The Source work perfectly all the time. 

Lastly, to begin having those attributes, you have to decide to do so.

Just start believing that it will happen.

Over time, this will become second nature.

But until then, do your best and never think you cannot have it.

Mind your thoughts.

You can acquire this with practice.

But, it is faster to just decide once and for all that you have it.
