I have literally worked with thousands upon thousands of thousands of people around the world to help them with manifesting their desires and intentions. The #1 issue that gets expressed from my students is the frustration that rises up after a small period of time has passed and they are still yet to see proof that the Universe is on the verge of releasing their intended goodies.

“Dear Sarah, I tried your ritual and LOVED it. During that time I felt really inspired, switched on and empowered. However, it’s been two weeks and NOTHING has appeared yet. I feel like I did something wrong. Please help.”

Two weeks? Not a very long timeframe is it?

Just know this: time is irrelevant.

The 4 reasons you’re not manifesting as fast as you want to is because…

Divine Timing is always running the show

The relationship that humans have with time is kind of silly. We think and feel that things “should” or “must” show up in a timeline that we intend. It’s hard to measure what has to happen energetically on the etheric realm first before alignment can take place. It’s like asking how long a piece of string is.

The truth is that God/The Universe is always delivering the things that will help us to grow and expand our consciousness. There is a method to the seeming madness because only our higher selves know the full details of the sacred contracts we penned before our birth. Our role is to trust in Divine Timing and that the Universe knows best.

You’ve Got Too Much Energetic Resistance

The distance between the time you set an intention, try a manifesting ritual and the exact date that it arrives on the doorstep of your reality is all about how much resistance you have around actually welcoming your desires into your life. More than likely if you obsess about your intention, watch it like a hawk, or place pressure on yourself to force something to happen then it won’t manifest. Why? Because it can’t (can not) energetically. The vibration gets stage fright and won’t release itself from the non-physical realm. The key is to trust and surrender to the process of manifesting. Just trust that the Universe heard your request and is conspiring to make it unfold in the best way possible for the nurturing of your soul.

You Don’t Feel Worthy Enough

If your prayers were answered, could you truly receive it? If the million dollars showed up in your bank account, if the soulmate was suddenly in your bed, if you had the keys to your dream home in your hand, could you graciously accept it or would you be resenting the time it took to arrive? Sometimes what we think we want right now, and the reality of what we believe we deserve are two separate vibrations that cause conflict. It’s important to remember that YOU ARE WORTHY and that the Universe will never give you more than you can handle.

Your Intentions Aren’t Clear

When you’re a conscious creator it’s so important to get really specific about what you want to bring into your life. Even more importantly is how you want to feel. It’s not all about getting to the destinations, it’s about the journey. However, you need to take time for yourself to set powerful intentions that are filled with meaning that will make your life more enriched and love-filled than just making a list of stuff you want to manifest.


Intention Setting is the first step in the manifesting process

When you write down your intentions, try and be as specific as possible. The Universe loves and thrives on specific requests. Dive into the details of the things, people, places and experiences you are wanting to manifest.
