Is it time for you to take a break from manifesting?
If so, how would you know?
In this blog post, we’ll go over some signs (some obvious, some more subtle) that it might be time to give manifesting a break.
And we’ll discuss what you should do in the meantime, and how to know you’re ready to start manifesting again.

Before You Give Up On Manifesting
Sometimes we all need a break from the manifestation process from time to time for various reasons.
But if you’re quitting manifesting altogether because it hasn’t worked for you yet, there’s something you need to know…
Chances are you are in the same position as countless other law of attraction newbies — spinning your wheels trying desperately to get it to work for you and getting nowhere.
There are a few reasons this could be happening, but I’ll tell you right now the most common reason is that you have energetic blockages standing directly between you and your dreams!
You see, we all enter this world with an “energetic profile” – a fated set of personality traits, gifts, challenges, karmic debts and allowances, and such – that determines our outcomes in life as well as how we communicate back and forth with the universe.
Without knowing this information (as most people don’t), nine times out of ten the law of attraction isn’t going to work as smoothly as it could.
It’s like trying to drain water out of a sink with gunk clogging up the drain!
First, you want to know that the drain is clogged in the first place, then you want to clear it so the water runs smoothly through, right?
I mean, you know your astrological sign, do you not?
That information is so popular, everybody knows of it and we can all use it to our benefit.
But what you don’t know (but you should) is your life path number and all the numbers, meanings, and secret messages in your numerology profile!
That information is just as important as your astrological sign (I’d argue even more so because it directly affects your manifestations.)
So… before you give up or take a break from manifesting just yet, make sure you get a free copy of your numerology profile, then review it to uncover the critical information you need to know.
Chances are it’s the one thing missing from your manifestations, and it can change your life!
(it only takes two minutes.)
1- Things keep going horribly wrong
The first way you can tell it’s time to take a break from manifesting is when things are going badly, and they’re not changing.
It’s the manifesting equivalent of being stuck in a bad cycle that just won’t break.
If things keep getting worse for you – if your manifesting attempts don’t seem to be manifesting anything positive at all — then it might be time to take a break from manifesting and just focus on achieving your goals the regular, slow way.
2- You start to have nightmares
Here’s another sign you need to take a break from manifesting: nightmares.
When your manifesting attempts are drawing in negative energy, it can come out as dreams – and not just any normal dream that fades away after being slept off.
Nightmares manifest when the bad energy is still going strong inside of you and around you.
It’s negative emotions from your subconscious mind coming to the surface.
While some bad dreams are normal, if you experience an increase in nightmares just as you start working with the energy of manifesting and the law of attraction, you can take it as a sign that you should give it a break.
This is especially true if the nightmares are directly related to the topic of your manifestation request.
So, for example, if you’ve been manifesting more money, and your nightmares include receiving windfalls of extra cash and then losing it all in a dramatic or dangerous fashion, you should take a break from manifesting.
3- Your mental health suffers
If your manifesting exercises are inviting new stress or anxiety into your life, it means you need to take a break.
Especially if these feelings manifest during the act of manifesting itself – like when you’re trying to visualize what you want and this causes so much heightened emotion that it’s actually hard for you to relax.
In some rare cases, meditation and visualization can actually cause anxiety in some people.
If you’re one of those few, definitely give manifesting a break, or try different manifesting exercises that don’t make you feel stressed or anxious.
Remember, manifesting is supposed to be fun and pleasant.
The universe is your playground!
If you’re feeling stressed out at any point during manifesting, it’s definitely time to take a break and do something else.
4- You start to feel very tired & lethargic
The other way manifesting can take a toll on you is when it starts to make you feel exhausted.
This may be especially true if manifesting has been your sole focus for weeks now and the results just aren’t coming in fast enough or are not as good as they were before – leaving you feeling drained of energy, creativity, and generally just… blah!
A key component of manifesting is keeping your vibration high.
The main goal is to feel good now and even better later.
If you’re super tired after working with spiritual energy, give it a break and care for your physical and mental well-being until your stamina improves.
5- You keep attracting the same types of things
This is a big one, especially for manifesting love and romance.
If you’re manifesting a new partner and every time they manifest something it’s the same type of person (ex. short-term flings), then it may be time to take some break from manifesting.
This is because manifesting works off your current subconscious beliefs about love.
if you’ve been telling yourself that there are no good men/women out there, manifesting will manifest your own self-doubt as evidence.
It’s the law of attraction in action!
But if you’re manifesting a new partner and keep getting the same types of partners who are the same as what you’re used to and want to leave in the past, it’s time to take a break.
In this case, you would need to work on your mindset and see why you keep attracting the same person over and over, just in a different package.
6- It’s been a very long time
If it’s been a very long time and you haven’t seen any results, it’s time to take a break.
There’s no hard and fast rule for what a “very long time” is, however.
You have to keep in mind your personal circumstances, beliefs, the amount of space you have in your life to accept your manifestation, and other factors.
A good example of this would be manifesting a new house.
Some manifestors may manifest their dream home in just two weeks, while others may take months or even years – it all depends on how much space the person has to manifest what they want.
But you will have a good sense of what’s reasonable and what’s not.
Something inside of you will just feel a little numb when it comes to your desire once it’s been too long.
Then you’ll know it’s time to take a break or change focus.
7- You’re obsessing over signs and symbols
If manifesting becomes an obsession or you find yourself fixating on symbols and signs, it’s time to take a break.
When manifesting becomes obsessive, there is no longer any fun in the process for you.
It starts feeling like work – doing things just because of how good they’ll make your life feel later instead of enjoying the process and approaching it from a place of wonder, you’ve already lost!
For example, while angel numbers can be great signs from the universe about the status of your manifestations, fixating on them too much can become problematic.
Instead of being open-minded about what might come up in your life (and manifest), if you’ve started fixating on every repeating number sequence you see, wondering when your manifestation is coming, it’s time to take a break.
It’s all well and good to be highly spiritually conscious, but we live on Earth and it’s important to stay grounded for overall health and well-being.
8- You’re manifesting too many things at once
Another way you know it’s time to take a break from manifesting if if you’re manifesting too many things at once and you’re starting to feel frazzled and confused.
It’s totally fine in some cases to manifest more than one thing at a time.
Especially if you’re already experienced and have a few law of attraction successes underneath your belt.
However, if it’s your first time manifesting or you’ve never had a manifestation before, manifesting too many things at once can be overwhelming and take up all of your mental space.
In this case, it’s time to break out the planner and start scheduling some breaks from manifesting so that you can focus on what’s most important and leave the rest for later.
Remember, the universe rewards clarity.
If you’re feeling frazzled, take a break.
It’ll only help.
9- You’re manifesting something negative
Next, if you find yourself so desperate that you’re manifesting something negative for someone else just to elevate your position, you definitely need to take a break.
I’m going to be honest with you.
It’s certainly possible to improve your life by harming someone else, but generally, it’s not the best way to live or to use universal energy.
This type of thing can so easily come back on you, and even having to go that route in the first place is a clear sign that your vibration is low, you’re in a state of fear, loss, anger, hostility, and other low-vibe emotions that aren’t going to serve you well down the line.
It is my strong opinion that we want to create beautiful, happy, healthy, confident lives.
We want to make our lives and the world around us a better place.
Because then everybody is happier.
So if you find yourself wanting to manifest money by getting someone else to lose their job.
Or manifesting a relationship with someone you like by having them break up with their current partner, consider taking a break from manifesting.
And work on yourself!
You will attract all the money, love and more once you feel good from within, I promise!
10- The universe told you “no”
Sometimes this can be a hard pill to swallow, but it’s totally possible that you ask the universe for something and the answer is “no”… your manifestation is not coming.
If the answer is no and you know it — please take a break from manifesting the same thing!
Just because you want something doesn’t mean you will always get it 100% of the time.
Not everything you want is always for your highest and greatest good.
And guess what?
Usually, when you ask for something and don’t receive it, it’s because something so much better is waiting just around the corner!
Imagine asking for a specific person to fall in love with you, getting mad when they don’t come, and continuing to obsess over them while someone better is vying for your attention – but you can’t even see it because you’re too busy pining away for the wrong person?!
Like, ewwww right?
Pay attention and just accept sometimes that the answer is no, and move on to something better.
It’ll be okay in the end.
Usually, you’ll wind up happier than you thought possible.
Things To Do After You Break From Manifesting
Now that you have an idea of some of the signs you need to take a break from manifesting, here are some things you can do once you’ve taken a break.
1- Get your numerology profile
If you haven’t already (and hopefully you did when I told you about this earlier), please get a copy of your numerology report.
It only takes a few minutes, it’s totally free, and you’ll save so much time and money because you don’t have to schedule a reading with or pay a numerologist or reader to look into your energetic profile for you!
Seriously, it’s a no-brainer at this point.
You’ll uncover so much about yourself, your challenges, and what you need to work on manifesting in a way that actually serves you.
So once you’ve had a break, you can try again with more precision to get the results you’ve been wanting this whole time!
2- Take care of yourself
I know this might sound like a no-brainer, but manifesting can be exhausting and it’s easy to neglect your physical body in favor of manifesting.
Make sure you’re getting good rest, eating well (especially at breakfast!), drinking plenty of water all throughout the day, and including tons of healthy foods to fuel yourself.
You want to manifest things into the physical realm, but you need soundness and wholeness of mind, body, and spirit to ask for and receive blessings in the highest way.
3- Study spirituality & the law of attraction
Finally, manifesting is a spiritual practice.
It’s not just manifesting money or love, it goes more deeply than that – into your very essence of being and soul.
And manifesting can be enhanced when you work from a place of spirituality!
Personally, I think it’s a great idea to study spirituality on a deeper level when you feel called to take a break from active manifesting.
This can be anything that suits your fancy.
You can learn about the law of attraction directly, or you can study loosely related topics like astrology, crystals, numerology, meditation, tarot or psychic development.
Doing so will keep you tuned in to spirituality in a way that supports you for when you come back to manifesting (hopefully sooner than later!)
Final Thoughts On Taking A Manifestation Break
The law of attraction is all about manifesting from a place of love, not need.
And manifesting can be very draining on your body and energy – so it’s often good to take time off and just focus on yourself!
I hope you’ve learned a lot and that you enjoyed reading this article.
And please don’t forget to get your numerology report!
It’s totally free, but includes a wealth of information that can help manifest the future you want.
