4 Steps to Erase Any Doubts You Have About Manifesting

Doubt holds our dreams away from us.  When we doubt in our ability to manifest something we want with the Law of Attraction (LOA), we send a message that says “I don’t think I can have what I want.” To match our beliefs, the universe will then keep what we want away from us.  Because of this, it’s a good idea to learn how to erase any doubts you have about manifesting. 

Here are a few steps you can take when you feel doubt start to creep in.

Step 1: Accept the doubt.

First off, it’s OK to doubt! Before most of us knew about the Law of Attraction we didn’t view doubt in a particularly negative way.  If anything, many of us felt when we doubted things we were simply being “realistic.”

Once we learned about the LOA, however, we may have started to see doubt in a much more serious light.  When we start to understand how important it is to have positive thoughts, we may begin to worry that our doubt will prevent us from manifesting the things we want.  So sometimes, after learning about the LOA, doubt actually carries more negativity than it did initially, because not only do we doubt-but then we feel bad about doubting!

However, there’s nothing inherently wrong with doubt, and you are allowed to doubt! You’ve probably been doing it your whole life and you’ve still managed to manifest a lot of good stuff, so doubting isn’t the end of the world.  You might as well accept the doubt because beating yourself up for having a negative (but human) expectation only compounds your negativity.

Just because you are doubting today doesn’t mean you will be doubting tomorrow.  It’s ok for your dreams to be unbelievable for a while, in fact-moving from disbelief to belief is actually a fun thing to do!

So instead of worrying and stressing out about your doubt, let it in for a little bit and allow it to be there.  Tell yourself “I will doubt as long as I feel the need to doubt, and that’s ok.”

By accepting your doubt rather than pushing against it you will begin to neutralize its power to generate more negativity within you.  

Step 2: Make peace with the worst-case scenario.

When we doubt in our ability to manifest the things we want we often simultaneously worry about what will happen if we fail to create what we want.  At times we make a mountain out of a molehill.    When you think about it, is it really the end of the world if one of our dreams doesn’t come true?

Will the Earth stop rotating if you don’t attract your dream car? Will the sun stop coming up if you never buy that house you’ve had your eye on? Will you cease to exist if you’re turned down for that promotion you’ve been gunning for?

When you feel doubt creeping in, play out the worst-case scenario if your dream doesn’t materialize, and then make peace with it.  Fortunately, in most cases the worst thing that will happen is that you’ll have to  go on living the way you’ve been living so far without this thing you want. 

Remember, you’ll still have a lot of great stuff in your life, and you’ll still be able to manifest more cool stuff in the future.  This desire is just one drop in the ocean of your life, and you’ll find a way to manage without it if you have to.

Making peace with the worst-case scenario will take the sting out of your doubt, and will help you eliminate any fear of failure you’ve managed to conjure up alongside it.

Step 3: Drop the subject.

Once you have accepted your doubt, and then made peace with the worst-case scenario, it’s time to drop the subject.  Seriously!

Continuing to focus on the issue by talking  about it, visualizing it and thinking about it may bring back up some of the negative feelings you’ve been working to set aside.  

Instead, by dropping the subject for a while, your efforts to accept doubt and make peace with the worst-case scenario will take root and become more established.  As time progresses, you will adopt a more casual attitude about the subject, and this will put you in a more receptive vibrational state.  Your vibe will start to project more of a message that says “what’s meant to be will be” rather than “why don’t I have what I want?!”

Please note: If dropping the subject feels at all challenging, simply tell yourself “I will think about this later,” or “I will figure this out when I’m in a better vibrational space.”

Step 4: Wait.

Again, when there is something you really, really want the only thing that prevents it from coming to you is your doubt. When there is something you really, really want, the magnetic pull you have on your desire is quite strong.  It is only through doubt that your dream is pushed away from you. If you can neutralize your doubt your desire will come to you, so once you’ve done steps 1-3 there’s nothing else to do besides wait.

So, after steps 1-3, let go and relax.  There’s nothing else you have to do besides accept your doubt, make peace with the worst-case scenario and drop the subject.  Once you’ve completed these steps successfully, your dream will start to find it’s way to you.  It will either fully materialize or you will start to see signs that your improved vibrational state is starting to attract it.

In the event you find doubt creeping back in, no worries! Just repeat steps 1-3 again.  The first few tries this may take a little practice, so if it doesn’t stick right away cut yourself some slack. As in all skills, practice makes perfect.  Eventually, these steps can become your automatic reaction to doubt, and as a result, doubt will start to lessen its grip on you in all areas of your life.

So the next time your find yourself doubting your ability to manifest the things you want with the Law of Attraction, practice these four steps.  Accept your doubt and allow it to be there, make peace with the worst-case scenario, drop the subject and wait.  That’s really all there is to it!

    Hi. Just wanted to say thank you so much for the great advice. I didn’t finish reading the whole thing only because I was already relieved of my doubt after reading step 1. I’ll save the rest for another time perhaps if need be. God bless.

    Hi Kumayl- The LOA can technically work for any goal. The important thing is that you cultivate belief in the goal. If you think it’s possible for you to cultivate belief in a goal, you can make it happen. If a goal feels totally unbelievable to you, instead, I’ve found it helps to eliminate the reason why you want something that feels unbelievable.

    I hope this helps <3

    Currently in doubt, and I just can’t stop crying. Maybe it’s a cleansing cry to my minds eye so that It can start seeing things clearly. And after writing this sentence i suddenly stopped and regained my breath in no time as if it never happened. Either I’m getting mentally sick or I don’t know. I’ll just consider it a sign that it was just my mind clearing up and it’s time to let go of what I’m holding on to so tightly…

    Hi SV, lately I’ve received a few questions on the “early morning feeling.” I’m thinking this is a good topic for a video in the near future. In the interim, it’s OK if you get a sinking feeling, just realize that you have the power to transform it when you catch it early.

    I might suggest doing some early morning vibration-raising activities to get this turned around. Here are a few, enjoy! https://raiseyourvibrationtoday.com/2015/08/03/morning-routine-for-law-of-attraction/

    I’m having some trouble letting go of the doubt. How can I still achieve what I want with still worrying it won’t happen? Will it happen if I drop the doubt? Thank you in advance!

    Hi Lauren, the worry is what keeps it away-never be afraid to drop worry or doubt. Those are the only things that prevent manifestation from occurring <3

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for your wonderful post. I’m usually used to seeing your videos, and this was a nice twist and just as effective. Regarding the step 3, I know how important it is to ‘let go’ of all attachment, and I have personally seen it work when you do let go.

    But is it possible to let go of your attachments, in a way that you no longer think YOU NEED to have your desire fulfilled, yet still visualize and dream about having acheived it already? In other words no attachments but reaffirming via visualization in a fun way that it’s yours already. Hence fulfilling the saying that what you think about most will manifest.

    This helped me out some today….I have an art business what was really successful and then I was flooded by two hurricanes within a year and life changed dramatically and my sales have never rebounded…1.5yrs later I’m tired, exhausted by the hustle to regain what i had…my sales are lower than ever and I have no idea why. At the same time I’m trying to sell a patent on a fitness device I created, so once again I’m stepping off the cliff into the unknown, relying on only myself, and….I’m drained, confidence isn’t great, waking up feeling frustrated…I volunteer with special needs people, I created an art program for foster kids….I give to everyone I can because no matter what,

    I realize how fortunate I am in so many ways, so when things drop like this(I was clearing $100K a year with art) and I have to worry about the bills, I can’t help but get freaked out, scared…mad. But, as #4 points out…wait. I’ve been down before and things have worked out, and I’m sure they are going to improve soon, but, it can be a lonely, scary place at times and simple words can help remind to let go and relax!

    Hi Keivan, how you feel would be your best gauge on whether or not that practice would be effective. If visualizing creates any anxiety or stress within you I would put it down for a bit <3

    This was the most amazing advice EVER. And I have read a lot, a lot, about LOA. I did it ALL, and even more, but I couldnt let go of doubt. No matter what i just couldnt let go of doubt.
    This was the golden answer for letting go. This! I wanted my manifestation so bad that i just couldnt let go or change my thoughts. But this advice was so simple yet so deliberating. Thank you. Really. For the first time in a long time i feels like a can breathe again.

    What if the worst-case scenario is homelessness for my son and I? Is there no way to effectively neutralize doubt and disappointment and desperation?

  • Andrea Schulman

    Indeed Tracy, the trick then IS to find why that would be a good thing in the long run. Challenge yourself to see how something as “bad” as homelessness could pay off big for you and your son in some way.

    Great post – thank you for sharing. Doubt is just a side-effect of desire. As you get better at desiring and then manifesting, you begin to learn about the power you have within. When you realize how magnificent that power is, the only thing you’ll doubt is doubt itself.

    Embrace the doubt!

    I’m not sure if you’ll reply and I’m pretty new to manifesting. I’ve been manifesting someone into my life. But at times I wonder if I truly want them to come back. I’m finding it hard to let them go, but I still want them back and gone at the same time. Hope that makes sense. What I mean to ask is that should I stop manifesting them back into my life because I’m not sure how I feel about it and them coming back. I have doubts about whether the manifestation will even work because this person seems to have moved on with their lives. Any advice is much appreciated.

    Hello, I’m new to manifesting, and well me and my ex recently split and I came across this video to manifest a text or call from a person so I tried it I did all the steps. Everyone said it had worked for them. In a matter of days. I’m having doubts. What if this doesn’t work for me and I never hear from him again. How do I stay strong in this manifestation. I wanna believe this to be true that we can possibly talk again. I want this to work for me.

    I REALLY needed to read this today. My desire is to heal a relationship, one that I know I caused to break down, so practising ho’oponopono feels like a bit of a fraud, because I know I was at fault. However, it can and will be okay. It’ll take a miracle, sure. But that’s fine. Once the miracle happens I’ll show so much gratitude that the balance will be restored and I’ll hopefully pass some of my vibe on so that someone else can benefit. I’m extremely grateful for you taking the time to write it.
