If you haven’t heard of the law of attraction before, it’s the idea that like attracts like. Mostly regarding your thoughts.
For example, if you think happy, positive thoughts, you’re more likely to attract, experience, or manifest good things into your life.
There are several manifesting techniques, methods, rituals, and games that you can use to stimulate the process of attracting your desires to you.
But what if you try these manifesting hacks, keep your energy, thoughts, and vibes high, yet your manifestation still doesn’t come?
In today’s post and the related video, I’m going to shed a little light on eight of the main reasons why the law of attraction isn’t working for you — and what you should do about it.
That way, you can experience all the fun and joy that comes with manifesting your desires!

8 Reasons The Law Of Attraction Isn’t Working
1- Your Intentions Aren’t Clear
One of the most common reasons the law of attraction isn’t working is that your intentions aren’t clear.
It’s easy to think we know what we want, but in reality, our actions and thoughts suggest the opposite.
I remember one time I was talking with someone and they said they hate their job. I asked, “what do you want to do? Do you want to quit? Find a new one? Change departments?” They said they didn’t know!
Think of using manifesting and the law of attraction as this incredible restaurant where anything you want is on the menu.
You don’t walk in and say, “gimme a burger.”
Uhm, excuse me, miss? We have all kinds of burgers! What specifically do you want?
You can have your wishes granted, but I’ll say it again as I’ve said a million times before — the Universe rewards clarity.
Focus on one intention or manifestation at a time. And make sure it’s what you want.
2- You Haven’t Found Your Best Manifesting Method
Second, there are countless manifesting and law of attraction methods and techniques out there. It could be that you haven’t found what works best for you just yet.
I liken it to a diet plan.
Some people love the keto diet. Others hate it. Just because keto sucks for you doesn’t mean you will never lose weight! It means you try something else, right?
Same with the law of attraction, manifesting and heck — everything else in life, while we’re at it.
If you tried the 55×5 method one good time and you don’t have what you want after some time, don’t throw in the towel.
Maybe that’s just not something that works that great for you.
I have a master list of 54 different manifesting techniques you can try with the law of attraction. And I’m adding more all the time!
Over the eight years since I’ve been working with the law of attraction, I’ve had some wins and some losses. Some manifesting techniques are now part of my daily life because they work so well for me, and I find them so easy and fun to do.
Others? I’ve done them once and never again.
Nothing wrong with that!
It may take you some time to find the combo of the law of attraction methods and manifesting techniques that unleashes your personal magic. But oh, when you do?!
You’ll have so much fun and start manifesting so fast it’ll be like… whoa!😉
3- You Are Approaching The Law Of Attraction From A Negative Space
Third, I know how hard it is to be positive when you really want or need something. Because let’s face it — much of the time people turn to the law of attraction and manifesting when there is a sense of lack.
After all, you wouldn’t be asking for something if you didn’t really need it or if you already had it.
It makes perfect sense to me.
But the problem is that you can’t trick the Universe into thinking you’re manifesting from a positive place when you’re really feeling despair, loneliness, desperation, or any other low vibe emotion.
If you’re frantically writing out your letter to the Universe trying to sound like you’re feeling upbeat and positive about the new job you’re working on manifesting, yet you’re really pulling your hair out because you don’t know how you’re going to pay your rent next week?
The Universe knows.
It’s a mixed message you’re sending out.
The solution is to find ways to authentically raise your vibration and enter a state of gratitude before you work on manifesting.
I will share some tips for that in another post, but for now, the best thing you can do before you do any of your manifesting rituals is to write a list of ten things you’re grateful for in the present.
Expressing gratitude for things you already have is a great way to start asking for anything new.
4- You Are Manifesting Too Much, Too Fast
I know you’ve seen some popular videos or read blog posts or even books about people who have these blowout manifesting stories. Like how they manifested winning the lotto, manifested free trips around the world, manifested tens of thousands of dollars, changed their looks, all sorts of big, juicy fun things.
And I want to say that it’s totally possible! Almost anything is possible if you have the right mindset and know what you’re doing.
BUT… when you’re brand new to the law of attraction or are having a hard time manifesting something, it could be that you’re trying to go too big, too fast.
One of the reasons you see me giving personal examples of manifesting small things is because I believe you should start small.
You see, the subconscious mind is powerful, and if you tell it things that sound like outrageous lies that contradict your present reality? It won’t believe you. And in fact, it will go into overdrive with the negativity so it can prove you wrong!
Now, there are ways to bypass this, but the best thing you can do is start with something small and insignificant.
Like a red box, a cup of coffee, a small amount of money, or something else that a) your subconscious believes you can have, and b) doesn’t have a negative impact on your life if you don’t get it.
This is SO important because this is where the magic and the fun happens!
It’s those small manifestations that bring you so much joy, excitement, and confidence that the law of attraction IS real.
Those are the ones that show you that you CAN manifest, and you have the power to create whatever you want.
Because look. Energetically, there’s no difference between manifesting something little and insignificant and something big and important. It’s all the same.
The difference is in what you believe you can manifest. What you believe and allow yourself to have in your life.
5- You Don’t Have Enough Space For The Law Of Attraction To Work
Next, sometimes the law of attraction isn’t working, and the Universe isn’t bringing you what you want because — it can’t!
You need to have space and pathways and room in your life for things to come to you.
If you want to attract a romantic partner, yet you are still sleeping with your toxic ex from time to time — you’re not opening up your life for something better to come in and fill that space.
What about your bed, too?
If you keep stuff on your bed to where there’s only enough room for you in your bed, where is your new man going to sleep? There’s no room for him!
If you want to manifest money, sometimes the Universe will respond with a loud “YES,” and you’ll find $20 blowing in the wind, manifest a win at the casino on a Vegas trip, or find checks in the mail.
But if you’re wondering why the law of attraction hasn’t worked for you, and you’re growing tired of waiting — see how you might create space for the Universe to bring you your money, honey!
Many people think the law of attraction works without action. Sometimes, yes. Usually, no.
You manifest so much more, so much more quickly when you do your part.
Make a list of what you can do right away to help things move along — and get to work!
6- You Need More Time For The Law Of Attraction To Work
This is pretty straightforward, but probably the thing that gets overlooked the most.
You need to give it time!
I get it — sometimes you see sensational stories like how some people manifest thousands of dollars overnight, and you wonder, “why not me?” Well, unfortunately, different people get different results. And the most exciting ones are the ones that get talked about.
Of course, nobody is going to want to brag and boast about how it took six months to receive a manifestation. That’s not a fun story — but sometimes it does take time!
That’s why it’s SO important to stay organized and keep track of all your manifesting exercises. I highly recommend you get a law of attraction planner.
Because it’s best to set your intention, do your exercise, file it away and go on about your life. Forget about it. Then check your law of attraction planner periodically to review what work you’ve done in the past. Your mind will be completely blown by how accurate your manifestations come true — after you’ve stopped looking!
Don’t be fooled by all the quick-fix stories you see. And don’t feel bad if it doesn’t happen for you that way.
Don’t give up on the law of attraction or manifesting and think it doesn’t work for you because you don’t get it overnight. Keep going!
7- You Aren’t Looking In The Right Place
Sometimes it’s not that your manifestation hasn’t come. It’s that you’re not looking in the right place, or that it has come, but it just doesn’t look the way you want it to.
You don’t get to tell the Universe every little detail of how you want your thing to be. You get to be specific about your request, but when it comes, it may not look exactly how you want.
Sometimes it does, so don’t think you’ll never get a picture-perfect image of what you see in your head.
But sometimes it doesn’t, and it’s important to be aware of that fact when working with the law of attraction. Because the last thing you want to do is have a bad attitude and carry negative energy or the weight of disappointment over something that isn’t even a loss!
If you ask for a new relationship but the person you get doesn’t look how you want them to, consider giving it a chance anyway.
If you want a new job but you don’t get the first one that you think you need — have a little patience. The right thing is probably just around the corner.
Everything happens for a reason, and it’s so important to keep your eyes and heart open for how your manifestations might already be there.
8- You Must Learn A Lesson Before Your Wish Is Granted
Last but not least, you may feel that the law of attraction isn’t working for you because there is a lesson you need to learn or something you need to do before you are ready to receive your manifestation.
Not everybody is ready for or deserves everything they are asking for at the moment of asking.
The fastest way to receive what you’re manifesting is to become a match for it.
If you want to have more fun — BE more fun.
Want to experience more love in your life — BE more loving.
Want to attract more income — BE more valuable.
What you receive is often a direct measure of what you put out. So if you are dealing with issues from your past that are holding you back in life, the Universe may be telling you that you need to go clear those issues before the world opens up to you.
Do you have to right some wrongs?
Do you need to acquire more skills?
Are you playing it safe, being small, and not just asking for what you want?
Can you just find a way to go buy what you want?
The Universe won’t do all the work for you. You have free will. Some responsibility is on you to do whatever you can to go out and get what you want.
If you’ve gone through all the items above and have determined that none of those could be why the law of attraction hasn’t worked, spend some time in self-reflection. See if there’s a lesson to learn.
You could try meditating on what key details you might be missing.
You could ask someone close to you what they think the problem is.
Or, you could take a spiritual approach. Try a tarot reading or Reiki session to see what energies might be blocking you.
The choice is yours, but ultimately if the law of attraction isn’t working for you, you’ll benefit so much from figuring out why.
It’s such a fun, exciting tool, and once you get the hang of it, you’ll be so glad you have it. It makes life WAY better.
I guarantee it!🤩
The Law Of Attraction Can Work For Everyone
If you’ve tried everything you can and the law of attraction isn’t working for you — I’m so sorry, babe. I feel your pain.
But the best advice I have for you is to keep going, keep trying. Throw everything you have at it.
Once you realize how it can work for you, you’re going to love playing around with the Universe. You’ll see that the world is one big ‘ole playground.
And you’ll have so much fun, experience so much pleasure, and live and love the life of your dreams.
