You’ve set clear goals and intentions, worked on your subconscious beliefs, and elevated yourself to a state of gratitude.
You’ve told the universe what you want, and now you’re waiting for your dreams to manifest.
But what are the signs your manifestation is close?
Here are 13 things to look out for while you wait.
According to Carl Jung, synchronicities are seemingly unconnected events that mirror what is happening in your internal world.
He believed that synchronicities reflect the deep psychological processes that take place in your subconscious mind.
While some people may be quick to dismiss synchronicities as random coincidences, they actually make sense according to the law of attraction.
The law of attraction states that everything in the universe vibrates at different frequencies, and similar vibrations attract one another.
Thoughts vibrate at different wavelengths, and the more energy you give to a thought, the more you call it into your life.
This is why we tend to unconsciously manifest bad things — until we learn the art and science of intentional manifestation.
Synchronicities are deeply personal events, so only you will be able to tell whether it’s true synchronicity or just a random coincidence.
Pay attention and, when you start seeing synchronicities, you will know that your dream is close to coming true.

You Feel As Though You Have Already Manifested Your Desires
Sometimes, you might find yourself forgetting that your manifestation is not yet visible in your external reality.
For instance, if you’re trying to manifest a certain amount of money, you may find yourself making plans to go out and buy the things you need that money for.
The clue here will be how you feel: if you notice a feeling of expansion and excitement, your manifestation is close.
However, if you notice feelings of lack or desperation, it may mean you still have some work to do.
Your Intuition Tells You Your Manifestation Is Close
Your intuition — also known as your gut feeling — is your most reliable guide as to whether your manifestation is close.
If you’re not sure how to tune into your intuition, try paying attention to your body’s physical reactions.
Picture the thing you’re trying to manifest. Notice how your body reacts — if you feel any tightening in your stomach, hunching of the shoulders, or clenching of the buttocks, your intuition is telling you you’re not quite there yet.
If you picture what you want to manifest and feel ease and relaxation in your body, it’s a good sign your manifestation is coming.

The Universe Sends You Tests
This is the less-fun but absolutely necessary part of the manifestation process.
One of the signs the universe sends when you want to manifest something comes in the form of obstacles.
These obstacles usually serve to teach you the lessons you need to learn or grow into the person you need to be to receive your manifestation.
For instance, I recently experienced a setback in my business. At first, it seemed like a disaster. But it forced me to change my strategy and take action outside my comfort zone that I had been putting off doing.
This process is making me grow, and I can already see how it is preparing me for the next stage of my manifestation.
So, while setbacks may initially cause you to doubt your ability to manifest, they are actually a great sign that your manifestation is about to come true.
You Release Control
You’ll know the law of attraction is working and you’re close to manifesting your desire when you notice yourself releasing your need to control everything in your life.
This feeling usually accompanies the high vibes, intuitive nudges, and other signs that your manifestation is coming.
Sometimes, when you want to manifest something, you can unwittingly block yourself from it by clinging to it too desperately.
When you do this, you start trying to control every action and outcome to make sure your manifestation comes true.
Ironically, this prevents you from seeing the signs from the universe that point you in the direction of your dreams.
You Mysteriously Start to Lose Things
One of the signs that your manifestation is on its way is when people, situations, and things that are familiar start to disappear from your life.
Sometimes, this can happen very suddenly — such as breaking up with your partner or getting fired from your job — and it might be painful or traumatic. Others may be more subtle, such as a close friendship that slowly drifts apart.
But you’ll quickly realize that whatever it was, it was standing in your way of manifesting everything you desire.
Something better will come into your life — a new friend, a better work opportunity, the love of your life — and you’ll understand that you had to let go of the old to make space for the new.
You Feel Calm
In spite of the outer chaos caused by obstacles and your life changing before your eyes, you might feel a newly-found sense of inner peace.
If you do, it’s one of the best signs that your manifestation is close.
The law of attraction works faster or slower, depending on how open you are to receiving.
When you grasp and cling, you subconsciously block yourself from manifesting what you desire.
But when you feel at ease, secure in the knowledge that your manifestation is just around the corner, you can be sure that it is.
You Start Seeing Your Manifestation Everywhere
A great sign from the universe that your manifestation is coming is when you start seeing the thing you’re trying to manifest everywhere.
For example, if you’re trying to get pregnant, you will start seeing pregnant women everywhere.
Or, if you’re trying to manifest a specific car, you will start seeing that make, model, and color everywhere you go.
New People Appear in Your Life
When people leave your life, they make room for new ones to enter. These are the people who are going to help keep you on the right path.
Manifesting your dream life takes the support of the right people, the ones who will lift you up and cheer you on, even when you don’t believe in yourself.
Or it could be someone who appears and offers you the right opportunity at the right time.
Often, these people come into our lives unexpectedly and usually when we’re not looking for them.
When this happens, it’s one of the surest signs your manifestation is around the corner.
You Start Seeing “Hidden Messages”
Have you ever had a question on your mind, then gone out and seen the answer on a random stranger’s T-shirt?
Or heard a new song about the very thing you’re in the process of manifesting?
Or bumped into an old friend who connected you with the exact thing you need to get your manifestation?
These incidences are the synchronicities that let you know the law of attraction is working for you. They are the hidden messages of the universe, and a great sign your manifestation is coming soon.
Your Dreams Contain Messages
Often, we dream about things that happen in our waking life or about our fears and hopes.
This is the way our subconscious mind sorts through our thoughts and works to find solutions to our problems.
But sometimes, we have dreams that just feel different. You might find you wake up and feel like your dream was trying to tell you something.
When that happens, pay attention. Write down everything about your dream as soon as you wake up, so you don’t forget the details.
If the meaning is not immediately obvious to you, give it time. You could see the answers appear as you’re going about your day. Let your intuition be your guide.

Other People Speak About Your Manifestation
When other people speak about your manifestation, it’s one of the best signs that your manifestation is close.
This could be a person you just met or someone close to you. Listen carefully to what they say, as the universe often uses people to transmit important messages to us.
You Feel More Present And Aware
In order to receive your manifestation, you need to be “tuned in” to the language of the universe.
This means staying aware and present, so you’re open to seeing the signs when they come to you.
When you get caught up in mental chatter, you stop being present. This blocks you from your manifestation and makes it take longer to arrive.
The law of attraction works more quickly if you stay focused on the present.
Doubt Before Manifestation
If you experience doubt before manifestation, this is a good sign (even if it feels like you may never achieve your desire).
When you set your intention to manifest something, it’s normal to doubt the law of attraction.
Many people say doubt could block you from manifesting, but it is possible to manifest even when you’re doubting — I’ve seen it in my own life and the lives of others around me.
Obstacles Before Manifestation
Obstacles before manifestation are a blessing in disguise and one of the best signs that your manifestation is close.
When you come across obstacles in your path, don’t despair. Instead, keep the vision of what you desire in mind as you adapt to the new circumstances.
How Do I Know if My Manifestation Is Working?
You will know your manifestation is working when you see the signs listed in this post.
These signs and messages are often subtle, so you must pay close attention if you want to know you’re on the right track.
Can You Tell Someone About Your Manifestation?
If you want to tell someone about your manifestation, you can, but you must be careful with the language you use.
For example, if you say, “I’m trying to manifest something,” this statement carries an energy of doubt which could block you from manifesting or slow the process down.
Instead, try saying, “I’m in the process of manifesting something,” and see how it feels.
Why Is My Manifestation Taking So Long?
There are many reasons your manifestation could be taking so long. It may be there are lessons you need to learn before you receive your desire.
If you feel like your manifestation is taking a long time, go back and look at your intentions and ask yourself if they are clear enough.
If not, make them clearer — the universe needs direct instructions in order to deliver on your dreams.
Also, make sure you continue to work on subconscious blocks, using tools such as meditation and journaling.
Can You Reverse a Manifestation?
That depends on what you manifest!
If you’ve asked for a car, a job, or a new love interest and you’ve already received them, the universe has done its job — the rest is on you.
