This post is all about how to release resistance and manifest anything you desire in your life!
You discover the law of attraction, and manifestations and feel excited because you literally found a way to manifest into your life anything you desire!
So with all the motivation in the world, you start researching about different manifestation methods, the best tips to help you manifest better, you start doing your visualizations, repeating your affirmations every day, waiting and hoping to one day wake up and see your manifestations become true.
But days and weeks go by, and … nothing happens, your life is exactly the same as it was. You start feeling frustrated, sad, and angry all at the same time because it´s not working, all your effort in trying to manifest what you desire hasn´t given you any results.
So you start asking yourself, what did I wrong? I followed all the steps, and made all the right things, so why isn´t working?
You are not the first person to ask these questions, a lot of people who practice the law of attraction have found themselves in this situation more than once.
And when it happens for the first time it really is a mood (and motivation) killer, which makes you rethink the idea of quitting the whole manifestation and law of attraction thing.
But what if a told there is an explanation as to why your manifestations aren´t working?
Or even better what if I told you that in this article you could find the exact things you need to do in order to make manifestation work for you (for real this time)?!
Before we start with these 5 powerful tips to release resistance and manifest anything you desire into your life, let´s take a quick overview of what manifestation is.
Manifestation is a technique used to attract, through belief and emotion, into our life any situation, person, or object. It is about matching your energy and vibrational frequency to the energy and frequency of the thing you desire.
Inside manifestation, there are many techniques you can use and adapt to your needs in order to manifest your desires. However, there are 3 simple steps that any manifestation process has to go through.
Now the reason why many people fail to see their manifestations come true is because they fail to complete one, two, or all of the steps we are about to mention.
So let´s take a quick look at these three steps in order to understand better how the law of attraction process works and where our manifestation fails to become true.

3 Essential steps of any manifestation process
Clearly determine what you desire to manifest in your life.
The first step in any manifestation process is to define and decide what is it that you want.
You need to be crystal clear about what you want in all ways possible.
You want to manifest your dream life, but what does that exactly look like?
You may want success in your life, but in what way? By owning your own business, becoming the CEO of the company you work for…?
You want to find a romantic partner, but do you know what are you looking for in a relationship and in a partner?
When we don´t have a clear idea of what we want we start sending confusing and mixed messages to the universe. How can we expect to receive what we want from the universe if we don´t even know what it is that we want?
So, choose one desire to focus on and become super clear about it. Write down in heavy detail what it is you want, describe the emotions, and how this dream makes you feel. Close your mind and let your mind go to a place where your desire is already manifested in your life.
Visualize and believe that what you desire is already present in your life
Have you ever heard the quote: “Be what you want to attract”? Well, this step is the literal definition of this quote.
The first and most important thing you need to know about manifestation is that like attracts like. Everything in the universe has a vibrational frequency, even colors.
Now, this vibration in humans is determined by our dominant thoughts or better said how these dominant thoughts make us feel. When we think of something, on a subconscious or conscious level, these thoughts set off a chain of reactions that change our bodies’ frequency.
What this means is that our thoughts matter and whether we notice it or not, we are attracting things into our life 24/7.
Based on this, the second step to any manifestation process is to “become” what we want to attract, to act as if the thing we want to manifest is already in our life.
By acting this way we are embodying the vibrational frecency of the thing we desire, accelerating the process of manifestation.
Surrender and let it go.
Finally, the third and last step to any manifestation is to surrender. Meaning once we have clearly defined and asked the universe what is it we desire, and we have “adopted” the frequency of the thing we want, it´s time to let go of it.
Interestingly enough this is the most difficult step and the one most people fail to go through, which could be the reason why your manifestations aren´t working (will talk about this more in-depth soon).
Summarizing, the secret to making your manifestations come true, is to gather your focus, and intent and concentrate on the one thing you want, and to put yourself in the state of letting go and surrendering.
Now the main reason why your manifestations aren´t working is probably that there are blockages that are slowing your manifestations from becoming true.
Resistance or blockages are kind of like obstacles that stand in the way of your manifestations. They normally are ideas, emotions, and situations opposite to the things we desire.
For example, you might want to manifest your dream career, but you have negative beliefs about yourself and the way life works that are keeping you from achieving this.
So what can I do in order to eliminate these blockages, release resistance and (finally) make manifestation work for me?
Let´s discover it now!
Where do resistances and blockages come from?
There could many reasons as to why there are resistances slowing your manifestations depending on the person.
Even though it is true that there are things in our world that get in the way and slow down the manifestation process, the first and biggest reason why our manifestations aren´t working is because of us.
Because of blockages that we create with our minds based on fear, doubt, and feelings of unworthiness or not being good enough that are stopping you from manifesting your dream life.
The second main reason as to why these blockages are created is that when manifesting we are in a state of wanting instead of attracting.
If you think about it, when we desire something it´s because of how we think it will make us feel when we obtain it.
The problem with this is that, without realizing it, it puts us in a position of wanting. We suddenly can´t wait to have the thing to experience all the emotions this will bring into our life. We start thinking: “oh, once I have this my life will be perfect” or “I won´t have to worry about money anymore”, or “once I have a partner, I´ll finally be happy”…
By wanting to be in a relationship, or being rich or healthy we are just obsessing with the idea and subconsciously feeling frustrated when our reality doesn´t match with what we desire.
It´s like planting a seed and then digging it up every day to see if has grown, then feeling frustration at seeing the lack of progress our seed is making.
This negative cycle makes our heads fill with thoughts that bring our vibrational frequency down, attracting to us the opposite of what we desire.
Because here is a hard truth about releasing resistance. No amount of wanting and getting off the wanting is going to make you feel happy and complete, because wanting breeds wanting.
How can I release resistance and manifest anything I desire in my life?
So far we have learned that the manifestation process needs to go through 3 essential steps in order to successfully work. These 3 steps are clearly defining what you desire to manifest, believe, and visualize what you desire is already present in your life and the final step is to surrender and let go.
One of the most common mistakes people make when manifesting is obsessing with the progress of their manifestations and what they desire instead of letting go. The other one is the obstacles they themselves create.
So how can we fix this, release the resistance we are holding against our desires and remove the blockades that are keeping our manifestations from becoming our reality?
Let´s discover 5 key tips to help you achieve just that!
Recognize the signs of resistance
The first step to start eliminating this resistance and blockages is to actually recognize and know when there are obstacles in the way of our manifestations.
Here are some clear examples that indicate signs of resistance:
- Just thinking about your dreams and desires fills you with fear or sadness.
- You are constantly worried about your manifestations not becoming true
- You think the law of attraction works for everyone but you.
- When you see other people successfully manifest your desires you feel envy.
- You feel desperate to have what you are trying to manifest.
- You need to know exactly how and when will it manifest in your life.
- You have a lot of excuses and/or fears for why it´s not possible for you to manifest your desires.
Find the root cause of your resistance
Once you have identified and recognized the signs that there are blockages stopping your manifestation from becoming real, it´s time to start eliminating and removing those blockages.
And the first step to doing so is to find the root cause of your resistance.
In most cases this resistance, as we talked about, is caused by fears, low self-esteem, and lack of confidence in yourself and/ or the universe.
In order to help you find the root cause of your resistance here are some journal prompts:
- What am I afraid would happen if this DID manifest in my life?
- How would people react and treat me?
- How is my fear of this happening protecting me?
- How do my desires or goals not happening fulfill my beliefs?
- If there was a reason this couldn´t happen, what would that be? What is the reason behind that answer? (Keep going and digging until you find the root cause for your resistance)
Identify what you can do to release resistance
Once you have identified your blockages and discovered where they come from, it’s time to identify what you can do to release this resistance.
Most of the time these resistances will be caused by liming beliefs your subconscious recorded during your childhood.
A limiting belief is a belief about yourself, life, your environment, etc. that restricts you in some way.
For example, you might want to manifest health and money into your life but you have the belief that money makes people greedy and bad because your dad said “rich people are greedy” at the dinner table so often. If you become wealthy, your family might reject you so you resist making more money.
Another example: You want to manifest a romantic relationship, but you deeply fear sabotaging the relationship like you saw your parents do when you were a child and so you resist finding the right person. In this case, your fears and resistances protect you from being vulnerable and finding that partner.
In these examples, the blockages that were stopping the manifestations from becoming true were negative and limiting beliefs caused by childhood experiences or false-based beliefs.
Almost all humans are heavily programmed with a lot of false beliefs and understandings about themselves, the universe/ God, how life works, how things work… And these universal untruths cancel out the positive energy we feel toward our desired goals and dreams, blocking them from manifesting in our life.
So in these cases, the key is to change those limiting and negative beliefs for ones that empower our dreams and motivate us to achieve our goals.
Now to change your limiting beliefs there are many different techniques and methods out there, and which one is best for you depends really on how deeply rooted it is in your subconscious.
But to start I want to share with you a very simple method you can try today to start eliminating your limiting beliefs:
- The first step of this method is to write down on paper the limiting belief, fear, and insecurity you have identified
- The second step is changing that negative thought into something positive, and useful, and changing it around.
As an example, let´s say you have identified a negative thought that is that you don´t believe yourself deserving of good things in your life.
We could turn around that belief by saying instead: “ I am deserving of love, happiness, success, health, and peace”.
- The third step is to internalize and change that belief/thought/fear. Every time that you catch yourself saying that limiting belief, stop and instead repeat to yourself the positive affirmations you changed that belief into.
I have a whole post about beliefs and how they are formed right here if you are interested in learning more about it!
Stop chasing and start attracting
As we have seen, the main first reason why there are obstacles standing in the way of our manifestations is because of our limiting beliefs, to which we saw how to identify those limiting beliefs and change them for more empowering ones.
Now the second reason why your manifestations are not working is because when you manifest you do it from a position of wanting, not attracting. Because yes, these two words have very different meanings.
In order to understand the difference between these two, I want to share with you a very important secret: the universe actually has an avoidant attachment style.
This means that you will attract what you desire as soon as you no longer need the thing to make you happy.
When we want something it doesn´t automatically mean that we are attracting that thing into our life. Wanting is not attracting.
Wanting puts us in a position of chasing instead of attracting. When we want something we are not elevating our energy to that of the thing we want, which is the most important thing to do if we want to successfully manifest something in our life.
So how can I achieve this? How can I go from chasing to attracting?
It is quite simple actually. Only when you embody the feeling of having will the law of attraction respond and bring into your life the thing you desire. You first need to embody how it FEELS to have that thing, which, curiously enough, consists of successfully completing the second step that all manifestation goes through.
What I´m saying with this tip is to not wait to feel how you think obtaining what you desire will make you feel. Because by doing this you are setting yourself up for failure.
In other words, if you want to be happy in a relationship, you first have to learn to be happy single. If you want to be rich because you believe it will make you happy, you have to learn how to be happy while being poor.
Let go of needing the thing you want. The trick to finding the balance between clearly expressing what we desire and letting it go is to practice being happy and at peace NOW.
When we let go of the thing we want we are realising resistance, clearing blockages. This causes the manifestation process to speed up, bringing into your life the things you desire faster.
Some additional tips to help you release resistance
Affirmations to release resistance to your manifestations
Affirmations are sentences used to reprogram our subconscious mind. They can also be used to make us believe certain things about ourselves and the world or environment surrounding us.
Affirmations are also used as a way to manifest the things we want in our life (wealth, love, happiness, relationships…). Here are a couple of affirmation templates you can use to help you with your manifestations
- I am willing to believe that I can manifest …
- I am open to the possibility that I can have …
- I am open and ready to receive …, for the highest good of all involved.
- I am always worthy of my desires and I release all resistance to them.
- I send love and peace to the part of me that is afraid of my desire. It is safe for me to receive …
- I allow … to flow into my life now with ease and grace.
- I don’t know how, but I am manifesting … and it feels amazing to receive it.
- I’ve decided that I AM worthy of receiving … because I am the creator of my life.
- I release and heal all beliefs that block my desires.
- I choose to trust that my desires are meant for me.
Gather evidence of past manifestations
The truth is that you have probably already manifested something your desired into your life without realizing it. Take some time to write down all the times you want something in the past and it happened.
This tip is incredibly useful and important not only because it allows us the opportunity to consciously appreciate the things in our life, but also to motivate us and further solidify our self-concept as someone who is successful in manifesting what we desire.
Manifestation is a technique based on the vibrational principle and the law of attraction which allows you to attract into your life anything you want through your emotions and the vibrational frequency of your desires.
Many times our manifestations aren´t working because of two main reasons: the first is because there are blockages in the form of limiting beliefs standing in the way of our manifestations. And the second one is because when we are manifesting we often do it from a position of wanting, instead of attracting.
The 6 tips we saw to help you release resistance, eliminate blockages, and manifest anything you want in your life are: to first identify the resistance standing in the way of your manifestations, second tip is to find the root cause of said resistance. Once you´ve done this the third tip is to identify what actions can you take to remove your blockages.
The fourth tip is all about learning to let go so that we can manifest from a position of attracting, instead of wanting. And finally, affirmations and gathering evidence from past manifestations which are great practices that will boost your confidence and speed up the manifestation process.
