Manifestation can be easy for some, but harder for others. For those that fall into the latter category (I certainly do sometimes) I’m going to help you learn how to manifest faster with these techniques. Once you turn these methods into habits, manifestation becomes effortless.
To manifest something fast you have to be crystal clear about what you want, then you have to get your belief system on board with your desire by clearing any blocks you have about if it’s possible for you. Next you have to shift your energy and clear your physical space to make room for your manifestation. Then you have to be ready to take action and receive your desire.
I know that waiting for what you want to arrive is really hard, especially if you’ve been trying to manifest something for a while. On the inside a part of us is the spoiled girl in Willy Wonka screaming that we want a golden goose and we want it NOW!
The universe does have it’s own divine timing, but you can work on making sure that you are ready for the amazing things it has in store for you. The truth is that sometimes we think we’re ready to manifest something before we really are, but we actually need to do a little work to get past the finish line.
The following tips will help you manifest your desires quickly because we’re clearing any blocks and making space for what we want, you can use these methods to manifest just about anything faster.
If you need it, here is a refresher on the key steps of manifestation.
How to Manifest Your Desires More Quickly
1. Know What You Really Want
Living in a capitalist society, there is a lot of “you need this to be happy” thrown at us.
Buy that product to be happy, look like this, inject that, oh wait throw that away and buy this instead, be more like him/her, this is what happiness is, that is what love is, success looks like this, don’t be too much, don’t be too little.
We are bombarded with things we must have, be, and do in order to reach that coveted state of happiness. So naturally, you’ll want to manifest something instantly because you “need” it to be happy.
But how can we manifest anything when there are so many different targets we’re supposed to hit? It’s no wonder that it’s so hard to manifest the thing that feels right to us.
Figuring out what you really want in life, what is aligned with your highest good, what will bring your heart lasting joy, will help you manifest things faster.
You can know what you really want by getting in touch with your intuition. Your intuition is led by your higher self, which isn’t pulled this and that way by trends and marketing. Your ego is lead by the whims of the world because it wants to fit in, but your higher self knows what is truly best for you.
Defining your values is another important step to figuring out what you want. Your values tell you this is important, this is not. Being a good person is important, being trendy to be accepted by others is not.
Once you’ve learned to differentiate between what the world wants for you and what you really want, you send a clearer signal to the universe. Then the universe knows exactly what ideas and opportunities to send you to co-create your desire.
2. Align Your Belief System to Your Desires
In order to attract or create what you want, you have to fully align your belief system with your desire.
If you don’t believe you can have it then you will block yourself from getting it.
You can want a loving relationship, but if you don’t believe your are worthy of love you won’t attract it. You might attract a relationship, but it may end up being with the wrong person and be very toxic.
You can want more money (we all do), but if you believe people who have money are bad, making money is hard, wanting money makes you greedy, etc then you will create your own blocks against attracting more money.
If you don’t believe you’re worthy someone could offer you all the money in the world and either you wouldn’t accept it, or you would take it only to self-sabotage and lose it all.
What you believe determines what actions you take (we’ll talk about action soon).
When I first started high school I was so excited about going to college, I even took extra classes during the summer so I could graduate a year early, which I did. I dreamed of having an amazing career and making something of myself. But, during the next three years I was told very often “if you don’t know how to do X, you won’t make it in college” and “if you don’t know how to do Y, you’ll fail college.”
Constantly being warned that I might fail college eventually made me believe that failing was a certainty, and I didn’t go college until several years after high school. When I finally did start taking classes at my community college I did really well, but part of me still believed I would fail and so I wouldn’t let myself choose a major.
All the beautiful dreams I had about my future in high school never came to light because I didn’t believe in myself.
Having the wrong belief system will completely gut your ability to manifest the things you really want because you won’t take the actions necessary to co-create with the universe.
When you change your belief system and clear away those mental blocks you will start to manifest things much more quickly.
Think about what you want and ask if there are any fears or resistance surrounding this thing. Ask “why aren’t I allowed to have this,” and “what am I afraid will happen if I get this?”
Keep asking “why do I feel/believe this” until you think you’ve gotten to the root of your limiting belief.

3. Make a Vision Board
Having a vision board is a great way to express what you want in the physical world without actually needing to already have those things.
Vision boards help speed up your manifestations by giving your conscious and subconscious mind a reminder of what you want to create. Our brains are absorbing information all the time, every time you see your vision board it sends a signal to you to create and/or receive it.
You can make vision boards yearly or quarterly. It’s good to leave up a few things you’ve already manifested because it reminds you that manifestation works, so future manifestations come even faster.
An amazing way to make money manifest even faster is to write yourself a check with the amount you want and I’ve made these beautiful checks that you can print and fill out. Use the date you fill it out to send a signal to your brain that it’s already done. When you believe it is done you’re releasing resistance which allows money to come so much faster!

Another fantastic way to ‘see’ your desire is through visualization, I have a fantastic Step Into Your Dream Reality guided meditation that will get you into alignment with your vision.
4. Take Action
The Universe is not a magic genie who will do all the work to grant your wish, it’s a co-creator! It wants to work with you to create your dreams.
When you take action you are showing the Universe that you are serious about this desire.
If you sit around waiting for it to drop into your lap you’ll just attract more waiting.
I’ve done waiting and it does not work!
You also have to realize that waiting is a choice. It feels like everything is out of our control and that our only option is to wait for another path to appear, but sometimes we have to create our own path.
Doing internal work counts too. My journey from being lost and stuck to finding my purpose started with me being willing to work on myself. That form of action meant learning, looking inwards, and shifting my beliefs.
Doing this then allowed ideas to flow towards me that I could take external action on.
So whatever action you feel prompted to take, do it!
Even if it’s just a small step, taking action will speed up your manifestation.
When I decided I wanted to start a this website my first action was to do research. I gave myself a timeline and a weekly task. I didn’t make my expectations too big, I just committed to doing one thing each week that would move me forward.
That doesn’t mean you can’t take a big leap, if you feel called to jump into something by all means do so!
Just do something.
5. Send Your Order to the Universe
Place your order with the Universe just like you order from Amazon.
Writing out a desire reinforces it to your subconscious, it tells it to look for ways to make it happen.
I created this manifestation order form you can use to write out your desire, then you put it away (sending it to the Universe) and trust that it is already yours.
When you order something online you don’t call them up every day to make sure they’re processing your order, you trust them to fulfill it and send it to you.
Adopt this attitude when you ask the Universe for something. Trust is a powerful part of the manifestation process and when you truly release control what you want to manifest comes to you even faster.
Of course the Universe wants you to be a co-creator, so watch for prompts from the Universe to take action!
This meditation is another really fun way to playfully place your order with the Universe.
6. Shift Your Energy
Everything in the universe is made from energy, including your thoughts and feelings. This energy has it’s own vibration frequency.
Feelings of lack and neediness have a low vibration, while feelings of joy and abundance have a high vibration.
One of the key parts of Manifestation is that like attracts like, so if you’re always feeling lack what are your attracting? More feelings of lack.
When you shift your energy away from lack and towards abundance you are attracting more abundance.
You’re probably thinking that sounds nice, but how do you shift your energy? Well all of the prior steps we’ve talked about automatically create that shift! Yay, you’re already making progress.
If you are really struggling to let go of attachment to what you don’t have, try this short practice to trust that you manifestation is coming. It’s only five minutes and it will help you feel so much more at peace.
Here are 26 ways to raise your vibration, so you can try those things too. It really just boils down to finding ways to be happy every day.
However, you don’t have to be ‘high vibe’ all the time, fluctuating thoughts and feelings are part of the human experience and experiencing negative emotions actually shows you what you want instead.
Holding a neutral energy is also an important part of manifesting.
When you try to be high vibe all the time it puts way too much pressure on you. You don’t always have to be happy or sad, you can just be. Just existing without the need to be this or that is a great energetic place to be.

7. Make Physical Space
Making space is one of the keys to instant manifestation.
If you haven’t made space for something new in your life it’s not going to manifest very quickly.
A potted plant can only grow so much before it needs a bigger pot to keep on flourishing.
This can be mental space, energetic space, physical space or all of the above.
If you are unwilling to bust through your mental blocks you cannot create a life that is expanding beyond them.
When you stay in a low frequency energetic space you aren’t going to attract high frequency manifestations.
The same thing happens when we don’t make space for the physical things we want.
You can’t expect to manifest the car of your dreams when your garage is so packed with junk you can barely fit in there much less a car.
You want to manifest a career as a power suit wearing boss babe? You gotta make space in your closet for those suits.
Want to manifest a new house? Respect your current living space by making it as beautiful as possible. Stop holding onto the clutter that you wouldn’t want to take with you to someplace new.
There’s a relationship between your internal reality and your external reality. Sometimes you have to work from the inside out, but other times you have to make an external shift as well.
Look around, where is the stagnant energy? Is there space for what you want? Where do you need to make changes? What do you need to release?
When you make that space you will manifest faster because you send the universe, and your subconscious mind, a signal that you are ready for what you want.
8. Practice Gratitude
When you feel gratitude for the good things you already have you attract more things to be grateful for.
Gratitude puts you on the energetic level of what you want to create.
Even if you only have $50 in your bank account feeling gratitude for that $50 puts you at the energetic level of “money is great!” instead of “not having money sucks.”
Because feeling lack attracts lack, practicing gratitude puts you into the energy of lets create more reasons to feel gratitude.
If someone is never satisfied with the good things they receive do you want to give them more? No, it’s off-putting to see someone not appreciate anything.
Manifesting is like this, not because the universe is spiteful or judging you, but because when your attitude is always “nothing is good enough” then the next thing that comes along still won’t be good enough for you.
Make gratitude part of your daily routine. Ever night before bed I think of the things I’m grateful for that day. It makes falling asleep in a good mood easier.
I have a mini course and seven day challenge Manifesting Through Gratitude that will teach you more.
9. Be Receptive
A huge part of manifestation is taking inspired action and co-creating with the universe, but sometimes we think we have to hustle 24/7 when we really need to release a little control and relax.
Sometimes we want it so bad that our actions are motivated by fear it won’t happen. We constantly wonder what the next thing we should be doing is because if we don’t do anything we’ll receive nothing. Or we fear the universe won’t deliver it the “right way.”
You might not be ready to receive what you want because of your belief system, but you might also be too attached to a specific outcome when what the universe is offering you is so much better!
Be open to other possibilities.
Don’t come to manifestation with the attitude that things are only allowed to happen this way. That might not be what you really need.
I know that’s easier said than done for those of use who like to be in control of everything.
Just know that there could be something even more perfect waiting for you.
Trust the universe, trust yourself.
10. Talk to Your Future Self
This one might sound a little crazy, but hear me out.
What if you could talk to the version of you who already manifested what you want? I bet they could offer you a lot of wisdom.
Pretend that your future self exists right now and you can talk to them in your head, you can treat it like a game.
Go to them for advice when you want to know what the next move should be and which path to take.
Ask them how you can manifest what they have. Ask how you can become more aligned with their destination. Talk to them like they’re your best friend.
You can use this dialog to get clarity, encouragement, advice, and alignment with what you really want.
This is a great way to not only speed up the manifesting process but to get in touch with your higher self. In fact I have a free Higher Self Meditation that you can try out.
11. Enjoy the Journey, Have Fun Now
Most of our thinking is about the past or the future. We are rarely here in the now.
The problem is that always living in the future, waiting for it to get here, just makes the wait that much longer.
Remember that the law of attraction says like attracts like, therefor waiting attracts more waiting which obviously isn’t helpful when you want to manifest your desires quickly.
That doesn’t mean you can’t dream about your future and make plans about how you’re going to get there, but you need to devote more time and emotional energy to being present in the current moment.
It’s not just about the destination, it’s also about appreciating the journey. Reflect on everything you’re learning about yourself. Appreciate the breakthroughs and revelations you’ve had. Put what you’ve learned into action.
One of the important steps of manifestation is feeling like you already have what you want. This helps you to stop those feelings of lack and desperation that can just attract more of the same.
When you find yourself ruminating on the past or thinking about the future, redirect your thoughts to the present moment. Instead of thinking “I wish I had more money” imagine that you already have it and how amazing it feels it see it in your bank account.
Get excited about your desires as if they were already here!
12. Affirm That You Already Have It
Sometimes manifestation requires that you do some pretending. We talked about aligning your belief system to your desire, and one really good way to do that is through affirmations.
Saying affirmations is a way reprogram your belief system, but the key to making them work is through repetition. Think about how many times you’ve had the same disempowering thoughts in your life.
Maybe you’ve thought I’ll never find love or I’ll always be broke. Those are affirmations that reinforce the lousy beliefs you don’t want to have anymore, so you have to start telling yourself the opposite story.
And you have to tell yourself that story on repeat until it replaces the old one.
So instead of I’ll never find love, start affirming to yourself, I found the love of my life and our relationship is so supportive and exciting!
They aren’t going to show up at your door after you say it one time-and you’ll probably feel very silly-but you have to keep saying it. You might have to say it hundreds of times. You have to be stubbornly persistent until you get what you want.
The more you affirm the reality you want to be living (instead of the one you don’t), the faster you will manifest what you want.

I hope you found this guide on how to manifest faster helpful! Really the most important thing is to be patient and listen for prompts from the universe.
Manifestation can happen in ways you don’t expect, so trust that what you want is on it’s way and that you are on the right path so long as what you want is for the highest good of all involved.
