IG Stories poll: Have you ever felt confused about how to manifest? | What is manifestingThe Spirit Junkie community recently opened my eyes to something.

I kept getting messages from people on Facebook and Instagram asking about manifesting and saying they weren’t sure they were doing it right.

So I ran a poll on my IG Stories that said, “Have you ever felt confused about how to manifest?”

I was shocked to see that 96% of people said yes!

I felt called to clear things up, so in this post I’m sharing 3 do’s and don’ts of manifesting.

What is manifesting?

Manifesting is cultivating the experience of what it is that you want to feel — and then living and believing in that experience so that you can allow it to come into form.

Gabby Bernstein smiling and laughing | What is manifestingYou can practice manifesting to attract whatever you want, whether that’s a successful business, good health, a relationship or even a material object.

Sometimes we manifest things far beyond our wildest dreams. So when manifesting, it’s important to stay open to possibilities that are beyond what you think you need. When you align with the loving energy of the Universe, there are no limits to what you can attract.

Manifesting is the process of vibrating at a high frequency so that you become a vibrational match with the Universe and can co-create your world.

The do’s and don’ts of manifesting

Let’s break it down more. Keep reading to discover 3 big do’s and don’ts of manifesting. Follow them and you will truly co-create with the Universe!

Don’t: Expect exactly what you want to just drop in your lap

This may be the biggest manifesting misconception around. There’s this idea that all you have to do is make a vision board and write a thousand affirmations in your journal… and then the exact thing you desire will magically appear before you.

Tweet: Manifesting isn’t about getting; it’s about becoming. @gabbybernstein #SuperAttractor

Vision boards and affirmations are great because they offer clarity. I love both of them! But we can get caught up in thinking that we know what’s best. We get very attached to a specific outcome or want things to happen on a particular timeline.

When we do this, we cut off Universal guidance and shift into manic manifesting.

Do: Trust that the Universe has a plan better than yours

Manifesting isn’t about having complete control or satisfying all our short-term desires. True manifesting isn’t even about getting what we think we want. It’s about receiving what is of the highest good for all.

You will have experiences in which you’ll attract exactly what you want. But controlling outcomes to get just what you want isn’t the goal. Remember, your plan isn’t always the best plan.

For example, if all your meditations and affirmations are around landing a promotion at work, you might completely block a way better opportunity at a different company!

In this video I share about how I surrendered to a greater plan when it came to having a child…

There is a plan greater than yours. When you surrender to the art of manifesting you can trust that spirit is guiding you toward your desires — and much more.

A prayer to let go and trust

Here’s a short prayer from my new book, Super Attractor, that will help you surrender your desires and practice patience:

“Thank you, Universe and guides of the highest truth and compassion. I am ready to feel free. I welcome a newfound faith.”

Say the prayer out loud and take a moment to settle into the feelings of what it means to surrender to faith in the Universe.

If you feel some resistance, honor it and then return to this prayer. You can say it as often as you want. It’s a request for guidance. You’re turning over your plans and clearing space for the energy of the Universe to support you in ways you can’t imagine.

Don’t: Try to “make it happen”

Trying to control and force things to happen is a deeply ingrained habit for many of us.

If you’re on a spiritual path, you may have done some beautiful work to release this pattern. But the ego’s need to control is sneaky, and we can fall back into this pattern without realizing it.

Even if you don’t really identify as a control freak (and I’ll be honest: I do), there are some subtle ways that we try to control. If you:

  • Sweat the small stuff,
  • Ask a ton of people for their opinions before doing something, or
  • Avoid dealing with things…

…Then it’s likely you’re secretly trying to control your life.

Remember, the Universe has a plan far better than our own. You can stop controlling and start receiving by tapping into that guidance.

Do: Practice the Spiritually Aligned Action Method

Manifesting is also known as co-creating because it’s a collaboration between you and the Universe. In Super Attractor, I teach a method that I intuitively developed and applied in my own life. It’s called the Spiritually Aligned Action Method.

When we take spiritually aligned action, we can trust that an energy beyond our own is working on our behalf and that everything is working out for us — even if we don’t know exactly when or how it will happen.

I want to give you a sneak peek at this method now…

Step 1 of the Spiritually Aligned Action Method

Oneness is my true nature | Gabby Bernstein | The Universe Has Your Back card deck | What is manifestingPracticing step 1 on its own is a game changer. Try this practice to get ready for the full method in Super Attractor!

Step 1 is to make sure your desire is backed with inspiration and service.

When the desire you’re manifesting is aligned with service and inspiration, it’s invincible.

You might be thinking, “How do I know if my desire is backed with service and inspiration?”

Or, “What if what I want isn’t about changing the world? What if I want to find love or get out of debt? How is that of service to others?”

If your desire brings you sincere joy, then it’s backed with inspiration! And as long as you surrender to the highest good for all, spirit will support it.

However, you also need to understand why you want something and what energy is behind it. If you want a new job so your family will approve of you, or if you want a relationship because you feel incomplete on your own, then your desire is likely backed with neediness and fear.

Here’s how to clear up the energy behind your desire: Ask yourself, “Does this desire make me feel inspired and serve others?”

Open your journal and write about how your desire lights you up inside. Write about how your inspiration and positive energy serves others. When you align your energy with service and inspiration, you can trust that it will propel your vision forward.

Finally, let yourself cultivate the feelings of joy, inspiration and great contribution. Give yourself permission to celebrate your desires!

In this video I share more about what it means to take spiritually aligned action:

Don’t: Save your manifesting practices for one special time and place

Many folks think of manifesting as something they do only while in their Zen den, on their meditation pillow, with every crystal lined up and candle lit. They spend some amount of time in that space meditating, journaling and doing whatever else helps them get aligned, feel good and connect to spirit.

…And then they get up, go about their day and leave their spiritual practices behind.

When you compartmentalize your spiritual practices like this, you’re cutting off the flow of inspiration.

Inspiration isn’t something we can feel only on a retreat, in a yoga class or at a religious service. We do ourselves a great disservice when we put it in a box and keep it separate from the rest of our life.

Do: Make manifesting part of your daily life

Manifesting is something we do continuously. In fact, we’re always manifesting and attracting — it’s just that we usually do it unconsciously.

Instead of saving your manifesting practices for “special” places and times, infuse them into your daily life.

  • Commit to meditating every morning, even if that means sitting in stillness for a couple of minutes and tuning in with your breath.
  • Turn to prayer when you want support or guidance.
  • Play the Appreciation Game!
  • Stay aware of your finances to help attract abundance.
  • And when you do get into your Zen den, be sure cultivate the feeling you want!

Manifesting is an art

If you’ve had any confusion around manifesting, I hope these do’s and don’ts have helped clarify things for you.

I want to wrap up this post with a short excerpt from Super Attractor about what manifesting truly is…

Manifesting is the creative process of aligning with the energy of the Universe to co-create an experience that elevates your spirit and the spirit of the world. Manifesting isn’t about getting; it’s about becoming. The more you let go, the more you become a match for what you desire.

I hope this serves you.

  1. Thank you so much for this! I am new to manifesting and i have found that i feel like everything is almost bottled up, in a way that i almost can let go of the things i try to manifest like you are supposed to, do you have any tips for this? I have also tried manifesting something but i have found the method hasnt really worked for me. After looking into everything i have found a method i feel will work for me. Can i ‘remanifest’ something or would that be counted as focusing on iti too much and therefore undo the attraction. Sorry if i dont use the correct terminology. Thanks!

    1. Hi Sofia,
      If I’m understanding correctly, you now have a method of manifesting that you feel comfortable with and are wondering if you can try manifesting something again.
      Absolutely! The Universe wants to provide.
      Now that you are in alignment, the process will go more smoothly.
      And you can always refer to this post for pointers.
      I hope you also check out Gabby’s Manifesting Challenge! I think it could serve you 🙂
      Big love xoxo

  2. thank you so much ! i’m new to manifesting but this has really helped me to look forward to it. i’m so glad i found this article.

    1. Great question Rex. You don’t have to be spiritual per se, but often times our spiritual beliefs provide a foundation for our manifesting practice. For example, Gabby often says that the #1 key to manifesting is to cultivate the feeling we want to attract– often times people rely on their spiritual practice to cultivate this feeling, but it is not necessary! xoxo

  3. Hi Gabby, I found you when I randomly was manifesting a flat faced owl, such as the one on one of your posts, this brought me to you further to want to buy your Super Attractor book. When I went to Barns n Nobles I found alot more than just the Super Attractor book and was delighted. As I read the back and inside cover of the Super Attractor book, as is my usual protocol, I opened the book randomly to any page to see if it took me right in, my fingers literally opened to page 111 Guardian Angels. Did you know that you had the heading of Guardian Angels on page 111? The next day while listening to Abraham Hicks on Youtube while getting ready for bed, I had an overwhelming exciting feeling come over me as I saw the end vision of myself and SP married and a future venture (in thought) of mine being successful, to open my medicine cabinet and have a vitamin bottle star at me with 1111% on it. Who knew they put that on a bottle?!!!! The next day I was in room 1, again the overwhelming feeling of excitement, as my co-worker handed me papers that read 11 with 111 looking me in my face on the computer and the patients last name Cassidy, which is mine. Is this all a 3day streak coincidence? I have had other things happen all revolving my SP over the last 1-2yrs ( ex. $11.11 on an ezpass reciept and doing 33×3 picking up a reciept that read 1@1.11). We are currently not together, but could you give me some insight please or have any words of wisdom as to why the consistant numbers involving him and thoughts. Many blessings <3

    1. Some people throw away the paper, Mariah! Other people put their manifestation in a prayer box. It’s up to you how you want to surrender. xoxo

  4. Thank you for this blog. I am new in manifestieren. Through the short time I got a lot positive energie and be came calm. The only problem was the feeling, not doing it totally right. I found a good answer here.
    Thank you!
    Antje Witte

  5. Hi Gabby, I was recently guided back to your website while feeling in a bit of a funk and came across your free Manifesting Jumpstart Workshop a year after I bought Super Attractor. I signed up more out of curiosity and watched it today. I feel such a change in my energy already. So inspired and so much lighter, really feeling good! I know this was the Universe guiding me to you at the exact time that I needed help. You’re one of my favourite spiritual teachers and I’m so grateful for you and your teachings. Thank you Gabby! Blessings and light to you from Johannesburg.

    1. Wonderful! So glad that the Manifesting Jumpstart Workshop resonated with you and that you’ve experienced this energetic shift. Sending you big love. xoxo

  6. I need to immigrate, I tried to visulized daily that I am in that certain country drinking a coffee with my family and telling them that I did it!
    and I did the action steps and applied to get there but I didn’t yet because they said I needed more documents and more time. The reason I need to immigrate because I am in a risk if I go back to my country which is not safe! My question, should I visulized the certain country or visulize that I am in a country where I can stay there. What exactly I need to visulize? When I didnt ttavel after all what I did, I feel hopeless and feel down now, it feels like there is no power in this universe to help us so I stopped now from taking any action toward it.

    1. I cannot answer this question for you, Ro, but what I can do is give you the steps on how to allow that answer to be given to you. Right now you’re in the logical mindset of “How do I figure this out?” and ultimately that blocks our sense of feeling and knowing the next right action.

      When our inner conflict and debate is louder than our intuition, the greatest gift we can give ourselves is to stop trying to “figure it out” and let our intuition be your guide. One way to develop “tuning in” to your intuition is through prayer and meditation. I want to offer you this simple prayer: “Thank you universe for showing me what to do. Thank for showing me what is of the highest good.” Then sit in meditation to receive guidance.

      Hear are some additional practices that you might find helpful:


    1. Hi there. Manifestation is not about controlling– it’s about allowing. Our assignment is to release any blocks that may be preventing us from attracting our desires. Because everybody has free will, we cannot control another person’s desires. When we express our desires to the universe, the next step is having faith that we will be guided toward the highest good for all. Here are some additional posts that you might find helpful:

  7. dear gabby, what if i don‘t know what i want? i struggle daily with that problem. i want to feel fulfilled and have a purpose but i somehow cannot figure out what it is. elli

    1. Here is a blog post that I think you will find helpful, Elisabeth. In addition to the practices suggested here, you may also want to start your day with this beautiful prayer from A Course in Miracles:
      Where would you have me go?
      What would you have me do?
      What would you have me say, and to whom?
      Then take some time to sit in meditation to receive guidance.

    1. Great question, Sharon. Manifestation is not about controlling– it’s about allowing. Our assignment is to release any blocks that may be preventing us from attracting our desires. Because everybody has free will, we cannot control another person’s desires.

  8. Hi, back again. Another question!
    Once I manifested for good grades and for my mother to be happy and get a job (as she was jobless and due to that she was sad).
    My mum shortly after that got a job and I didn’t get good grades.
    Why did this happen? Was it not backed up with inspiration?
    Thank you for your time Gabby xx

    1. Hi Amber,
      I have another post for you to check out:
      Just because you didn’t get what you asked for doesn’t mean that you did something wrong or that you’re not being guided and supported. Rather than ask “Why is this happening to me? we can create a shift by asking “How is this happening for me?”

    1. Great question, Charlotte. I’m not sure if “work” is the word I would use, but you may be guided to take inspired action. Here are some additional posts that you might find helpful:

  9. Hi, my name is Ashley. I’m new to manifesting. I’ve been Feeling great about everything I script, but I have 2 questions. 1) Can I manifest about the same thing more than once everyday? Can I manifest by scripting and 5×55 method at once the same day, or is one method good at a time ?

    1. Great question, Ashley. It’s not the frequency of your manifestation practice, but the energy behind it. If you are manifesting several times a day due to lack mentality and trying to control the outcome, then that is out of alignment with surrender and faith. If you are manifesting several times a day from a place of joy and faith, then there is no reason to limit your practice. Here is a blog post that will help you check in with yourself: /new-blog-manic-manifesting/

    1. Yes, Karrera. We attract people/situations that are in alignment with our energy and the lessons that are coming up for us. If you’re continuing to attract a challenging person or situation you may want to check out this post:

  10. Hi gabby! I started manifesting some days ago, and I have a huge doubt, is it wrong if I skip manifesting (scripting) one day? Or just because I’m not feeling my best and I don’t want to manifest more of my current bad mood…

    1. Great question, Lucila. It’s absolutely okay to skip manifesting until you feel that you are spiritually aligned. Here are some tools and practices that you might find helpful:

  11. hi gabby! Im new to manifestation so I have some questions. what is the best day and time of day to manifest? does there have to be an astrological event happening? Also can I manifest multiple things at once and do I manifest the same thing multiple times?

    1. You can manifest any time, Laila. Rather than consider the best day/time/astrological event– check out this blog post to see what Gabby says is the #1 Key to Manifesting: /the-1-key-to-manifesting/

  12. hi gabby I’m still new to manifestation, but I just had a question… I have been wanting a new phone specifically an iPhone eleven. I’ve been writing on paper about this phone as if I have it already and the advantages that this phone can give me, how I will feel when I have it, etc. my question is, does asking for the phone to someone ”blocks” the possibility or not?

    1. Great question, Cecelia. It depends on your energy. Gabby is a strong believer that the universe works through people so if you feel guided to ask someone, honor that! Here is are two blog posts to help you determine if fear and lack mentality is driving you to ask for the iphone:

    1. Nothing is “too big” to manifest, Khorie. People manifest epic love, dream homes, ground-breaking careers, staggering abundance….our ability to manifest is limitless. Here are three other posts that you might find helpful:

      1. Hi Gabby! I am new to manifestation… I want to move to the USA within a year(due to personal reasons) but my parents don’t want to because they don’t have enough money for that…i am keeping a hope with me that I will shift to USA soon what do u think will this come true???

        1. The universe is always working towards the highest good for all, Jennie. Continue to hold the desire in your heart, and work on surrendering the outcome! Here are some tips to help you do that:

  13. If what comes up during manifestation is not what we expected and we got to accept it , does that mean our life eventually comes down to fate/destiny ?

    1. Great question, Asha. When life doesn’t unfold in the way that we expect, it’s a beautiful reminder that the universe is at work. Here are some additional posts and practices that you might find helpful:

  14. I really appreciate this website! And I was hoping you can write me back . I want to manifest in love, but from a certain person. I know love should come naturally but this is a bond that I feel is good for me , so I would like to manifest in it, any advice?

    1. Great question, Marie! If you haven’t read Gabby’s book, Super Attractor, I think you would find it helpful. Here are some additional tools and practices to help you ask for your desires and surrender the outcome:

    1. Alexandra, Gabby says that “the #1 Key to Manifesting is feeling is to cultivate the energy of what you want to experience.” You can certainly practice the various manifesting techniques daily. But, you may want to check in and make sure that you’re not manic manifesting. Here are some additional posts and practices to help you manifest your desires and surrender the outcome:

  15. Say if you were manifesting for something really big and you wanna stay really committed to it so you mostly meditate and ask for that one single thing every day, will that affect anything? Am I meant to manifest that thing and let it go and let is just happen or am I meant to manifest that specific thing everyday??

  16. Hi Gabby. I would like to be the Head Girl of my school. I’ve been praying, thinking about the changes I’d make in my school, and researching about the position. I’ve even written this particular goal down on paper, and spoken it into existence I believe that I can and will get the position because my grades are great, i participate in school events and I have a good relationship with my teachers and principal. people have been telling me that they want me to be head girl but I never make it obvious to them that that’s my goal. I think the universe is listening by letting other people encourage me to run for the position. Also, i’ve faced many struggles with teachers this year (the devil used them to attack me spiritually and mentally) i think this is a sign that God has something big in store for me)

    Do you have any opinion on this?

  17. Hi Gabby. Myself and my husband and children are just about to put our house up for sale and hoping to buy another house that’s close to our children,s schools and their friends . We were told by our bank that moving the mortgage over when we buy a another home would not be an issue and also lending us more money for a more expensive house. Just this week the bank has come back and said they might have to lend a lower amount of money because my husband had a small temporary pay cut. This has kind of dampened our spirits a little as we were all super excited about moving. Is this the universe telling is now is not the right time! Any advice would be greatly appreciated . Sarah

  18. When manifesting can I type it up instead of writing it down ? And is it to much to be asking for riches and fame ?

  19. hi gabby, i just have a question. could i manifest a specific person into liking me? and if i can then should i even do it? i really like this boy so much but i don’t think he likes me back. we’re each others best friends! but, i just know he doesn’t like me back. but do you have any tips on how to get him to like me back? thanks xoxo

    1. Nothing is “too big” to manifest, Ella, but remember that the universe only delivers what will be the highest good for all. This is why it is important to be specific about what you ask for and then surrender the outcome, trusting that the universe knows best. Here are some practices to help you do that:

  20. Gabby, What are your recommendations when talking to people that feel focusing on the Universe Power takes away from their belief in God?

  21. Hi Gabby, Can I manifest more that one desire at a time, for example, try to manifest my dream university this week then the next week try to manifest my dream career then the week after that back to my dream uni, then my dream career and so on?
    or shall I try manifest what’s gonna come first in my life?
    And shall I just try to manifest the result, for example for my dream uni I need to get good grades in my test which is in 2 years year, then my 2nd test which is in 4 years then if I get good in that I can go to my dream uni? So do I first try manifesting getting good grades on my first test, then after that ill try manifesting getting good on my second test,then finally my dream uni. Or shall I just try manifest my Dream uni?

    1. Great question, Kavya. We are all manifesting several things at one time. For example, we can manifest on a daily basis as well as hold space for our long term goals. Here are some additional posts and practices that you might find helpful:

  22. Hi Gabby. I want to manifest a person into my life that if never met. He has no idea I exist. Can I do this, or is it to big?

    1. Hi Gabby, I manifest, meditate and say affirmations every morning and night but is there such thing as manifesting too much? For example, I manifest clear skin one night and then the next I manifest a job opportunity. Should I limit my manifestations to one thing until I revive them or keep going with more than one manifestation at a time?

  23. Hi Gabby! I was just wondering about the law of attraction and short and long term goals. Say for instance I have a few really ambitious goals which could all be achieved should one possess the right amount of money. So in order to do that one would need to perhaps open a small business, invest the money in real estate and so on in order to generate sufficient wealth to be able to set about working on the the ambitious goals. Is it better to focus manifesting a short term goal such as opening a small business, but keep long term goals in mind. Once the short term goal has been reached then start working on the long term goal? Or is it better to simply focus on the long term goal because the universe will align and place certain opportunities to be able to achieve the long term goal. Such as the opportunity to open a small business, which will then generate enough income to be able to open the ambitious passion business? Secondly what if there were multiple ambitious long term goals. Should one focus manifesting all of them, or the key goals which will allow for the other goals to come to fruition. I would really appreciate your thoughts on this! I’m sure a lot of people may be wondering about this too! Thank you so much!

    1. It sounds like your desire is to manifest abundance, Eric. If this is correct, there is no need to complicate it by deciding what it is going to look like or how you are going to get it. Simply focus multiplying and increasing your faith and desire. Here are some ways to do that:

  24. hey!
    this was a good read but i always get quite nervous about things like this, is it dangerous? if i manifest can it be dangerous?if so how can i ensure that i do it safely. i’m just really nervous haha. thank you!

    1. Great question, Amelie. The best way to begin a new manifestation practice is to recite a prayer. One Gabby commonly says is, Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for revealing to me what I need to know.” By doing this, you are being intentional about the energy and experiences that you are inviting in your life. Here are some additional practices:

  25. Hi Gabby, is it ok to share what I want to manifest with friends and even have a manifestation activities with them? I’m thinking of having one with my friends so we will have motivation and collective energy to manifest what we want.

    Or is it better to do it alone?

    Thank you 🙂

    1. You can absolutely manifest with your friends, Julienne! Having a group of supportive friends can help inspire and support you! Enjoy! xoxo

  26. Hi Gabby,
    I was wondering if you have ever manifested on some not talking to you? My Aunt and I had a really big situation and she doesn’t want to talk to me anymore so I was gonna manifest on getting my Aunt to talk to me again and I just wanted some advice from you. Please get back to me when you can : )

  27. Hi Gabby. Say that i wanted something for someone else that would benefit not only me but the loved ones around me. For example say my father needs a job opportunity where he is happy and makes a lot of money. Is this backed with inspiration and service?

    1. This is beautiful, Li! You can absolutely hold this intention for your dad. This may help him believe that a job opportunity were he is happy and abundant is possible for him! xoxo

  28. I don’t get what we’re supposed to manifest then? Isn’t the whole point of manifestation to get exactly what we want?
    “For example, if all your meditations and affirmations are around landing a promotion at work, you might completely block a way better opportunity at a different company!“ This sentence seems to contradict the whole point of manifesting what you want.
    If I want a promotion and manifest it, then it should happen since I’m doing positive affirmations and putting my faith into the universe for that outcome?

    1. Yes, Jan. When it comes to manifesting, we can absolutely be specific about what we are asking for, and then surrender the outcome and trust that the universe will deliver this or something better. Surrendering the outcome may seem counterintuitive from our human perspective, but it’s important to remember that the universe sees the big picture and is always working towards our perfect happiness. Here are some additional posts that you might find helpful

  29. As one could expect, the Universe sent this post to me on the day after I had a huge mental shift on something I’ve been putting off doing for the last few years. Thank you for opening my eyes and understanding the messages I’ve been receiving for a very long time. Having the ability to look at something now and understand that there is more than synchronicity is inspiring and sometimes quite overwhelming to be honest. ❤️

  30. thanks for this, Gabby! If you’ve already ordered the book, is there a way to jump on this workshop? Thanks again!

  31. Thanks Gabby. Your teachings really resonate. I bought your super attractor book via amazon for kindle and so was wondering if I can still access the bonus workshop?
    Many blessings,

  32. Thank you for opening my eyes to a better understanding of how manifesting works. I started taking baby steps on learning how to manifest and after reading your post, I know now not to hold back on what I want, but to go full force into what I desire in my life.

  33. Thank you Gabby. I’ve been doing fairly well at manifesting what I want in regards to service to humanity… Service and inspiration. I needed that reminder. Letting go again and detaching and staying positive and work towards it. Ok bye bye.


  34. Hi Gabby,

    My 10 year old daughter started losing hair. Upon meeting with doctor , i came to know about this autoimmune condition and doctor on first visit injected steroids which made her hair severely tangled. inspite trying hard, hait did not untangle and we had to go for haircut finally . I did not realize then that it was due to steroids. This doctor recommended to experts. they did the same and remaining hair was gone too. I stopped going to doctors. I was crying every night on the condition. I got your book one day and then read all the books. Last month i read super attractor and manifesting a dream…this is difficult…to my miracle , i have started seeing the sign every day. There is one treatment available but i am not sure if that is the right solution I am requesting universe to guide me to the right solution. Kindly advise how to reach to the right solution and know when there is time for treatment. I trust that universe has a plan and i can patiently wait to become more kind, loving and gentle. My daughter has started to believe and says the prayer “Thank you Universe and guides of highest truth and compassion. I am feeling free now. I believe in newfound faith’. She has started meditating and receiving guidance too. The life is so much filled with love with you, Gabby….

    1. Hi Sarita,
      I’m so grateful that my books have served you. I am sending your daughter (and you) prayers and healing light as she heals from this condition. My suggestion is to consult with your physician and/or additional medical professionals to determine possible next steps. I am a strong believer that the Universe works through people and I hope that you are guided to the right perfect team to support you on this journey. I’m so proud of you and your daughter for your willingness to heal and experience miracles. Much love to you both.

  35. I love this manifesting as an art: have experienced and need to keep remembering to go back to basics of alignment to allow for continuous divine flow/inspiration v control or take ownership for yesterday’s gifts.
    It’s in the NOW that I receive.

  36. Love this! I have Only been meditating for a week and I feel calmer in my mind. I’m not sure of manifestations yet, but I am going to trust the Universe to guide me when it’s time to choose ‍♀️

  37. I used to follow you on social media but didn’t read or listen to your stuff until a friend sent me to your Super Soul talk. I was so touched since I am going through a similar challenge as you were at that time. Now, I am a follower. I am learning to meditate, manifest and simply trust the universe. I am queuing up your books to my reading list for the next year. Can’t wait!

  38. I ordered this book on Amazon because i didn’t know if I ordered it from you directly there would be a free workshop that would prepare me for the book. That being said, the book came through next day and I started reading. The immediate impact I felt was startling but also created a spark in me that I thought didn’t exist. I have been in the dark and resonating at such a low frequency for so long that I thought it was normal. It also explained why I kept attracting negative things, situations and people. I have been really depressed, anxious, and sometimes very lost. I feel like I have hope now and something to reach for.

    Thank you for writing this book, providing guidance, how to meditations and videos, and teaching me how to turn back to the light.

    One question – I am transitioning jobs because i have been so unhappy and unhealthy in my current job and have gotten in a lot of debt making the transition. (I was making six figures and now I’m 100% commission so I can be my own boss and work from home, set my own schedule etc.) What advice do you have so that I don’t let that consume me or scare me back into going back to a traditional, extremely stressful six figure job?

    1. Amy, you can still access the Manifesting Jumpstart workshop. Just visit the following link and scroll down to enter your order number:

      If you are struggling financially, I suggest you be more gentle with yourself and honor your transition. Can you find part-time work or even full-time work that will allow you to pay your bills, save money and feel supported as you build your dream? I suggest you try the mantra and prayer, “I am open to creative possibilities for abundance.” This will help you to find an opportunity that resonates with you and feels good to you. Having this financial security will alleviate your stress so you can raise your energetic vibration and free yourself up to work toward your dream without the stress of needing to pay the bills, etc. As you begin to do this, consciously look for examples of abundance in your life right now, no matter how small they are. Focus on them every day. Consciously paying attention to the abundance you already have will lead to more and more of it. Remember that when you are aligned with the Universe, asking for guidance and paying attention to it, your path will unfold. It may not be how you pictured it, and it may not be on your timeline, but it will be for the highest good.

  39. Thanks Gabby, I am finding it bit difficult to know if I’m manifesting correctly. I have my Super Attractor book now so will read it and try out your techniques and tips.

  40. I live in NYC and I am really struggling with dating. I go on a lot of dates with guys from online or on apps. They try to be physical with me ASAP on the first date and it makes me so uncomfortable. I tell them “no” and I never hear back from them again. I keep attracting all these men that just want sex. I am so frustrated because I just want to attract a high-quality man who treats me well and is also someone I am physically attracted to. Any advice?

    1. Hey Gabby I was wondering what are your thoughts on manifesting a SP back into your life? For me it’s an ex. Have you seen many success stories with this?

      1. Nothing is “too big” to manifest, Dre, if it is for the highest good. When it comes to manifesting, we can absolutely be specific about what we are asking for, (like an SP), and then surrender. Surrendering the outcome may seem counterintuitive, but it’s important to remember that the universe sees the big picture and is always working towards our perfect happiness. Here are some additional posts that you might find helpful

  41. Gabby, hoping you or one of your support team can clear something up for me. In the Law of attraction, like attracts like. But in scientific Laws, opposites attract, eg positive and negative charged particles, or north and south poles of a magnet. Like repels. It’s difficult for me to reconcile these two seemingly opposing Laws of the Universe. Hoping you can help clarify this for me, particularly in a scientific sense. Thanks.

    1. Hi Annette! The principles of negative and positive ions, or attraction and repulsion, are what prevent a solid object from moving through another. However, when it comes to humanity and our energies, the Law of Attraction holds true. I hope this helps! <3

  42. Hi Gabby, I’m an avid follower of your guidance, however, I’ve got a health problem that is really getting me down. Because of severe childhood trauma, I’ve got an autoimmune disease that is attacking my hair. My diet consists of literally 6 things, and if I deviate from this, I lose more hair. I would have lost all of my hair if it wasn’t for my perseverance of trying to stop these attacks from happening, and of getting my body under control. I have had this illness for 3.5 years and I have made improvements in the sense that I can now absorb food and my weight has normalised. However, it’s just so disheartening to be still losing hair, especially from the front of my head, just because very occasionally I might have something ‘off-piste’ like a small piece of birthday cake or a tiny piece of plain organic chocolate. I have to pay the consequences of any ‘treat’, which I know I occasionally deserve but which the universe is denying me. All my products are completely pure and organic including toothpaste, shampoo etc. and they cost me a lot of money. I know I receive healing in some areas and I am grateful for this, but with my huge burdens in life I would like to think that the universe will cut me some slack on this, so my lovely hair is not taken away from me as well, as it doesn’t seem to be growing back. I follow your guidance on manifesting abundance but for some reason I feel so far it is not working on my immune system. I wonder if you can help me with this? Thanks.

    1. Ann, I appreciate that you continue to show up and share here in such a heartfelt way. It’s amazing to witness your journey and your beautiful progress. I deeply believe that the Universe works through talented doctors. I too have sought out amazing support from doctors for challenging health issues and grateful for the help I received. Continue to use all the amazing spiritual practices that we have discussed in our discussions here. I also have a daily mantra for you: “My willingness to heal allows whatever I need to come through”. Try saying this in the mirror each morning and be gentle and loving as you move forward. <3

      1. Thank you very much Gabby, I love this mantra – I will say it every day as you say, and I believe something good will come. x

          1. Hey Gabby, I believe and God and practice catholic faith. Does manifesting hurt my relationship with God and does it go against my faith.

          2. Great question, Mckenzie. Manifesting is not about trying to control the outcome– it’s about doing the self work so that your thoughts, feelings, and behavior are in alignment with your prayers/intentions and strengthening your faith that the universe/god will deliver. If you are looking for a clarification specifically from a religious standpoint perhaps reaching out to your priest/pastor/ect would be helpful. xoxo

  43. Aligned action. I love this so much. Thank you. When my desires, my spirit, and my purpose are all aligned, there’s simply no stopping. It’s a magical feeling.

  44. Thank you so much Gabby!!! You truly inspire me every day! I feel a fuzzy buzzy energy around me and through me – I KNOW I am on the right path. I am so excited for Sunday!

    1. Grateful you have shown up here Jami. Continue to connect with these tools and practices. xoxo

  45. This. Knowing that the Universe, God, Goddess, the Angels, the Guides, exist everywhere and support us.

  46. I was literally praying for direction when a friend sent me this post. I’m reading this with tears in my eyes as my answer was immediately manifested to me. Thank you sweet friend for posting this

  47. Thank you so much for sharing this blog. This is exactly what I’ve been struggling with —I’m in this constant fear that I’m not manifesting correctly and therefore won’t get the things I desire. I so appreciate the reminder that it’s not about a thing per se and more about cultivating feelings I want to have and then trusting the Universe to provide exactly what that looks like.

  48. Lovely Gabby,
    Thank you so much for your words as clarification☺️♥️ I had always the feeling if I am in my Center- as I call Aligned with the Universe- things will fall into one Good place and all the people, places, situations are serving my way toward my Highest Sevice. I am grateful for your confirmation and looking forward for the Masterclass and Your new book❤️Gratitude from Hungary
    Xxx Kata

  49. This is one of the most EPIC events that I get to experience with all these gifted and talented, divine co-creators HAPPY EVER NOW, I am loving all of it so much SUPER ATTRACTOR is highly anticipated by all of us, thank you for inviting us Gabby on this delicious ride and knowing we can have it all with EASE, all time!

  50. Thanks so much for this Gabby.
    I started Manifesting every morning when I was trying to get my Coaching business off the ground.
    I would start with do pranayama practices, then meditation and followed by 5 mins of manifesting
    This seemed to totally work for the first month, as in I actually “almost” got a client with the same name as my Avatar!

    However, it seems to have gone a bit quite and I do believe that I need to reconnect with manifesting and attracting success into my business.

    Thank you so much for writing this

    Much joy to you
    meditate first then

    1. Grateful to read this Gary. These practices are always there for us to return to and connect with.

  51. Here’s a little exemple i wish to share. I wanted a cap and so i went to the store. I found one but was not sure because i had no money. The next morning i wanted so much this cap … but i was not there… made phone calls everywhere to find it and even told a store employee how do u know you don’t have it anymore is it possible your bought it when i asked you to put aside. Anyways i decided i let go cause i felt it was time for me to let go. The next morning in the middle of nowhere on my second neighbour’s garden was a cap of basketball ( one valued of around 69$ ) …i asked the neighbours if it is theres … no all said take it..need less to say it was not fitting at all on me… so i decided to walk to the basketball parc since so many kids are playing there… of course when i gave it to this kid he almost cried he was so happy… well can you tell what happened… the vanished cap from my first encounter reappeared…
    so i bought it but i realized that i actually don’t want it as much…

    funny how you feel when you let go

    just wanted to share…

  52. Thank you

    In total agreement that trusting that you always have guidance and that manifesting is not just for meditation but a flow of energy or spirit that is open to you and receiving.

    Question. Can you offer advice for feelings of anxiety. Knowing that it will pass and you are guided but feeling anxious none the less. Is it okay to feel it, notice and let it pass thru you?

  53. Hi Gabby! With the help of your book The Universe Has Your Back, I landed an internship in an industry I feel passionate about and where I can express my creativity! This felt miraculous as I had only sent a few applications because I first needed a break after my stressful final year at school and I didn’t feel inspired by the other job offers. I truly believe the Universe is guiding me and supporting me to live the life I desire. Thank you Gabby! I’m excited about what Super Attractor has to offer!

    1. Amazing Laura. You are always being guided. Super Attractor will be a game changer for you. xo

  54. Wow! The sneaky-ness that is manic manifesting. I have been manic manifesting my children living with me 100% of the time. (Recent divorce and sharing my children was NEVER in my plans….and they are MY babies and well…being honest who wants to share their kiddos with an X who has a host of issues). This hit home today when I realized I am grasping tightly and trying to control it in every way possible to the point of my own internal misery. Great reminder that I have to relax, let go and trust the Universe here because I see clearly I have been doing the exact opposite. I cannot say what that looks like in this situation but I do see all my angst is getting me nowhere.
    Thank you Gabby.

  55. I dabbled in this yesterday. I am a teacher and have the summer off. I wrote down that I wanted to work more creatively and collaborate in education. I want to use my knowledge and be seen as an expert in elementary education.

    A friend called me this morning and hipped me to a work shop being held next week. Participating in the work shop insures eligibility in an out of state later this month!! I was up for the local work shop and keen on an opportunity to travel out of state to learn more. As soon as she said that there were thirty slots to go out of state and over eighty people registered already, I thought ” I will be one of the thirty selected.”

    After I hung up, I listened to a Gabby July posit cast. During the pod cast Gabby talked about celebrating the small manifestations. Groovy. The fact that my friend called and that I can be a part of something interesting, fun and a feather in my cap is worth celebrating.

    A miracle a day keeps the ego away!

  56. Gabby! I am SO excited for your book and for the Manifesting Workshop. So far, I have manifested a three week trip to Italy next and I can’t think of a better way to prepare for it than to attend your workshop. I create art that is spiritual as much as it is about the unknown. I manifest through teaching and helping people open up to their inner creator. My meditation practice and your book has helped me in continuing every day to make and to remain awake. Super Attractor is so well times and aligned with my continued manifestation and what my trip will bring. Thank you!

  57. Thank you Gabby! Just yesterday I was reminded by that quiet little Voice to focus on what is working. I can hear the words right now as I heard them then, and it brings such peace to connect with that place within. And to remember that God’s plan is probably better than mine is just wonderful! Go for it Universe! Can’t wait to see what You come up with this time!

    Sending wishes for a beautiful day to you and yours,

  58. Hi Gabby! Love and light today from Montana! GREAT thanks and excitement for your book. I pre-ordered and have a good girlfriend who also pre-ordered. We are so ready for August 11! Thank you SO much for this blog. YES, have been SO confused with cross-wired information about manifesting in my brain and heart and how to do it. Seems like I have a shoebox full of information jewels along with quite a few haphazard and random practiced systems that make me feel so frustrated with processes. Reading this blog did make me feel amused at myself with how much I try SO hard and yup, lol, have been in manic manifesting mode, expecting things on only one specific timeline, and forgetting gratitude often! Taking suggestions in the blog to heart and to my journaling & what practices I’m working on getting more regular with. Keep doing such amazing work and sharing! Thank you and congratulations on the book! <3

  59. Always a great reminder to focus on the feeling – rather than the outcome or particular goal or thing that I want/need/desire. Feelings create vibrations, vibrations attract that energy… All the good stuff. Thanks for bringing it back into focus

  60. It’s so funny, my anxiety I think was leading to manic manifesting. What I need to do is trust my gut and trust the universe and know that everything good is coming to me — some goodness beyond my wildest dreams!

    I was getting so tied into the specifics that manifesting wasn’t becoming fun. It’s inspiring and fun once again!

  61. Hi Gabby,

    Thank you so much for this! I stumbled upon your book The Universe Has Your Back when I was, and still am, in a rather low place in my life. Your book gave me comfort and strength and I have noticed synchronicites happening as I did the exercises.

    Thank you so much for everything and bless you for the wonderful work you have done.

  62. This was helpful! I have always had an ability to manifest certain things into my life- love, material things, my living location/conditions… but I had struggled with finances, sharing/practicing as a classical singer, and fitness/healthy diet…. but I realize it’s because in these areas I still have been applying a mindset of scarcity and fear! Whereas in the other areas in my life, for some reason it has been easier for me to feel gratitude and trusting the universe to provide. I now know that once I release the fear and limiting thoughts, the other areas in my life will flourish as well. Can’t wait to see my beautiful life continue to grow!!!

    Thank you Gaby (and the universe for providing her messages to me when I need them).

    See you Sunday at the live lecture!♥️

  63. Gabby,
    When I ordered your book I was too late for an in person seat but I manifested one and your team emailed me that they have a spot for me! I can’t wait! And I have a gift for you- a manifesting tool that I use. I have been calling it active prayer because until a few weeks ago when I started your spirit junkie masterclass, I didn’t know what manifesting was! But it seems I’ve been doing it for some time. I’ve already learned so much from you these past few weeks, and can’t wait to learn more from you at the workshop and from this book! THANK YOU for being an amazing spiritual teacher!
    Xoxo, Colleen Ann

  64. The “Thank you Universe” Prayer made me cry! It was like a release because I want to surrender and have faith. I’m so tired of worrying and trying to figure it out or find the how. This really hit my heart. Thank you!

    1. So glad it served you Heather. Surrender and know that the Universe has your back always. ✨ Sending you much love and light.

  65. Thank you so much for your guidance and sharing this gorgeous practice! I’ve been working towards cultivating a feeling of excitement, joy, and gratitude to attract what I desire (a Spiritual Partnership, a thriving business that allows me to combine my love of dance and psychotherapy, and amazing health). I can’t wait for this Sunday! I’ll be there in person . Sat Nam ✨

  66. Hi Gabby. This really helped me out. Right now I am living in the zone. People are reaching out to me for help and I love sharing myself with them. Like you said I feel inspired and in a place of joy as this occurs. I do not know what the Universe has ready for me to step into but I have a feeling it is going to be spectacular. I am thinking right now I could be a motivational speaker. Your best friend ever. Bernie.
    I just love all of these practices. Thank you so much.

  67. Thank you so much for this great post! Exactly what I needed to her today…It has helped me to see back again that manifesting is about surrender to a greater plan and be open to creative possibilities that may come to us. When we try to control and get things the way we want we cut that flow. Fantastic reminder for the ego!

  68. Wonderful !
    Thank you for these words and for sharing insights from the new book.
    I do a meditation in the morning but want to bring at least 1 practice for manifesting over the day. It is just a matter of building up the habit 🙂

    Look forward for your workshop !

  69. Thank you so much God, I needed this. Struggling right now with my fears coming from past experiences in churches.
    Thank you Gabby, can’t wait to assist at your workshop

    1. Sending lots of healing and love your way. Grateful that you can join the workshop this weekend!
