For the most part, people want to manifest money or love, but if you are wondering how to manifest someone to be your friend, you are not alone.
Increasingly in today’s world, people are feeling isolated and lonely. While social media provides a sense of connection, much of the time it is not the same as having an organic, in-person friendship.
Harvard University found in a recent study that “36% of all Americans—including 61% of young adults and 51% of mothers with young children—feel ‘serious loneliness.'”
This statistic is staggering, and it’s no wonder that so many people are wondering how to manifest true, long-lasting friendships.
So if you need to manifest a true and lasting friendship, read on to discover how to manifest someone to be your friend.
1- Get clear on what you want
The first step to manifesting anything in life is to get clear about what you want. When it comes to friendships, this means getting clear about the type of person you’d like to befriend.
Do you want someone who shares your interests? Someone who makes you laugh? Someone reliable and trustworthy?
More specifically, what would a healthy relationship look like to you?
How much time do you spend together? What types of things do you have in common?
It’s a good idea to spend some time reflecting on these questions because they will help you attract the type of friendship you desire.
If you already know the specific person who you’d like to manifest friendship with, that makes your work only a little bit easier.
You still need to consider what you like about this person, why you want this friendship, and what you’d want this friendship to look like.
The best way to handle this task is to answer several questions in a journal (you can type this or write it by hand.)
Here is a list of questions to help you gain clarity on the type of friendship you’d like and who you’d like it with:
- What qualities am I looking for in a friend?
- Why do I want to be friends with this specific person?
- What do I like about this person?
- What common interests do we have?
- How much time would I like to spend with this person?
- What activities would we enjoy together?
- What would I like this friendship to look like?
- What can I bring to the friendship?
Once you’ve answered all of these questions honestly and thoroughly (plus any other details you can think of), you’ll be ready for step 2.
Need help with clarity?
If you need help with clarity, it’s a good idea to get your hands on your free numerology report…
In fact, even if you don’t think you need help with this step, it can still work wonders for your friendship manifestation.
This is because most people don’t know themselves as well as they think they do.
Your numerology reading will shed light on the true personality traits that you’ve always had and will always have. And it’ll tell you your weaknesses as well.
Remember a time in the past when you thought you had a closer friendship than you actually did, and things wound up not working out?
That’s likely because you bonded over the wrong things and were never meant to be close friends in the first place.
It would be such a huge waste of time to make the same mistake because you were misinformed, would it not?
Avoid the unnecessary stress and drama and get it right the first time – see what your numerology reading has in store for you.
It’s free and only takes a few minutes.
2- Visualize specific scenarios
The next step after you have your journal of what you want to attract is to visualize yourself living this experience.
Take a few deep breaths to center and ground yourself, close your eyes, and imagine that you and your new friend are spending time together doing things that you enjoy.
If you don’t know the person yet, imagine what it would feel like to meet this person for the first time and spend time with them. Visualize your friendship progressing and deepening over time.
See yourself laughing together, sharing stories and common interests, and generally enjoying each other’s company. Make the visualizations as detailed and specific as possible, and spend at least a few minutes each day doing this exercise.
The more you can immerse yourself in the experience of having this friendship, the better.
A bonus tip is that you don’t have to set aside a long or awkward amount of time doing this visualization exercise. It’s a good idea to practice visualization either just before you go to sleep at night or just as you wake up in the morning.
Make this a habit, and you’ll begin to do this automatically, which will lead to effortless manifestation without you having to alter your lifestyle very much.
3- Clear limiting beliefs
Next, you must acknowledge that you have limiting beliefs that have or will prevent you from having the friendship you desire.
For example, do you believe that you’re not good enough to be friends with this person?
Do you think that this person is too popular or attractive to want to be friends with you?
These are just a couple examples of the kinds of limiting beliefs that can prevent you from manifesting your desired friendship.
It’s important to become aware of these beliefs so that you can clear them and open yourself up to the possibilities of having the friendship you want.
To do this, simply write down all of your negative beliefs about friendships in general, and then specifically about the friendship you desire.
Again, be as specific and honest as possible.
Then, for each belief, think of an experience in your life that you’ve already had which would make that belief inaccurate.
It’s important that you pull from actual experiences in the past because this is how you will train your subconscious mind to bypass the false belief and rewrite your story.
For example, if deep down, you believe that this person will not want to be your friend because you’re not good enough, you can write down an experience where someone did want to be your friend, even though they had no obligation to do so.
It could be as simple as a stranger smiling at you on the street, or a cashier engaging you in conversation beyond the basics of the transaction.
These small experiences will help to break down the false belief that you’re not good enough to have the friendship you desire.
And don’t worry or feel ashamed that you have some negative self-beliefs. Literally everybody has some insecurities about something. Most people won’t display their insecurities because who wants to do that publicly?
But trust that you’re not alone and the more you’re willing to own up to unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, the faster you can change them for the better.
Here’s a list of some of the most common limiting beliefs that can keep you from manifest friends:
- I’m not good enough
- I don’t deserve to have friends
- I’m not lovable
- People are better off without me
- No one would ever want to be my friend
- Making friends is too hard
- I don’t have anything in common with anyone
- I’m too boring
As you can see, some of these beliefs are pretty extreme, but it’s important to be honest with yourself about any negative thoughts you have so that you can work on changing them.
4- Ask the universe
Now that you’ve done the inner work of clearing your limiting beliefs, it’s time to ask the universe for what you want.
This is where you’ll do one or more manifestation rituals to formally ask the universe to help you manifest your desired friendship.
Most people jump straight into the rituals without doing the very important legwork first – and that is unhelpful in just about every way.
Only once you’ve laid the groundwork by doing the first three steps should you proceed to this step.
There are many ways to ask the universe for what you want, but here are some of the most popular and effective methods:
1- Write a scripting letter to the universe – This is a classic manifestation technique that involves writing a letter to the universe detailing what you want as though it has already happened.
2- Try the 369 manifestation method – This is a unique manifestation technique that involves writing down your desired outcome 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times at night for at least 33 days straight.
3- Create a vision board – This is a popular manifestation technique that involves creating a visual representation of what you want to manifest.
There are many manifestation methods that you can try. (View my entire manifestation rituals archive here!)
4- Positive affirmations for friends- Something you can do nearly every day (or multiple times per day) is working with positive affirmations that support your friendship manifestation journey. Repeat these affirmations first thing in the morning, ideally as you look at yourself in the mirror, and it will offer a significant boost.
The main point is that you find something that works for you. And make sure you only do it after you’ve done the groundwork first!
5- Take inspired action
The next step for manifesting someone to be your friend is to take inspired action.
This is probably the most important (and often most overlooked) part of the manifestation process.
You can do all the inner work, write letters to the universe, and make vision boards until you’re blue in the face – but if you don’t take any real-world actions to make your desired friendship a reality, it’s not going to happen.
The good news is that taking inspired action is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is keep your eyes open for opportunities to connect with the person or types of people you want to be friends with.
Once you’ve done all the previous steps and asked the universe for help, it’s your job to place yourself in position where your desired target will be aware of you.
Then, have confidence and know that you’re worthy and that it is already done, and you will be able to create the friendship you desire.
Here are some ideas for taking inspired action to manifest someone to be your friend:
- Join a club, group, or class that your desired friend is likely to attend.
- Go to events and places that your desired friend is likely to be at.
- Talk to people who know your desired friend and try to get introduced.
- Act friendly and approachable so that your desired friend will feel comfortable talking to you.
- Be yourself and let your true personality shine through.
- Smile, have fun, and enjoy the process.
6- Let go and allow
Last but not least, if you’ve done everything in this guide correctly, you should be on your way to manifesting a great friendship.
But once you’ve taken all the steps and done all the work, it’s important to let go of the outcome and allow things to unfold naturally.
This is probably the hardest part of manifestation, but it’s also the most important.
The reason it’s so important to let go and allow is that when you’re dealing with manifesting people, you can’t remove their free will. It’s not the same as manifesting objects or other experiences, which generally are easier.
You might manifest your friendship but it could happen in a different way than you thought.
Or, you might not end up being friends with this person at all, but you’ll manifest something better, and you have to be okay with that.
Either way, it’s your job to let go and trust that the universe has your back and knows what’s best for you.
Now that you know how to manifest someone to be your friend, here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about this topic.
How long does it take to manifest a friend?
While it depends on your unique situation, if you do all the steps correctly, you could manifest a friendship in as little as two weeks. Most commonly, it takes at least a month or two. And in some cases, it can take six months to a year. If you’re having a difficult time turning your dreams into reality, consider starting at the beginning because usually, there’s something you’ve missed.
How do you manifest someone closer to you?
If you already have a friendship and want to deepen it, the process is exactly the same. You decide what you want, visualize it happening, release limiting beliefs, ask the universe for help, take inspired action, then let go and allow.
Can you manifest a friend group?
Yes, manifesting a friend group is possible. You would follow the same steps as to manifest someone specific to be your friend.
What is the best method to manifest friends?
The best method to manifest friends is the scripting method, where you write a letter to the universe as if you’re already enjoying the friendship you desire. This is a powerful way to help you get clear about what you want and feel confident that it’s on its way.
Can you manifest friends with benefits?
Yes, but it’s important to remember that you can’t control another person’s free will. So while you can use the steps in this guide to attract someone to you, you can’t make them want to be friends with benefits. It’s up to them to decide what kind of relationship they want with you.
How can I manifest my friend back?
Yes, you can manifest a friend back. In some ways, it’s even easier to reconnect than it is to start fresh. You must be willing to be humble and be the change you wish to see. Otherwise, follow the same steps as manifesting a new friendship.
Can I tell friends about my manifestations?
You can tell your friends about your manifestations, but be prepared for some skepticism unless you know they are on the same wavelength. If they are not interested in the law of attraction, their skepticism could thwart your progress. Other than that, there is no reason you should not share your manifestations.
Creating and maintaining friendships is an important part of life. If you’re having trouble making friends, use the tips in this guide to help you manifest someone to be your friend.
The most important thing is to be yourself, have fun, and enjoy the process. And don’t forget to let go and allow once you’ve done all the work. The universe has your back and knows what’s best for you.
I hope this guide was helpful, and I wish you the best of luck on your manifesting journey!

Don’t forget to get your free numerology reading done! It’ll help you find clarity with what you want but there’s also an added bonus of making all your manifestations come through faster because you’ll have an amazing connection with the universe.
