Is it Possible to Manifest Your Ex Back?

Yes, it is possible to manifest your ex back using the Law of Attraction. In fact, there are a variety of techniques you can use to manifest your ex back.

However, it’s important to remember that everyone has free will. The Law of Attraction cannot force someone to do something they don’t want to do.

And when you think about it, that’s how it SHOULD be.

For starters, you wouldn’t want to be with someone who really doesn’t want to be with you, would you? Of course, not.

In addition, we all have free will and we all have the ability to manifest. If your ex’s desire is to be single and that’s what they have manifested, then The Law of Attraction won’t force them to change their mind.

Having said that, people do change their minds frequently. You’ve changed your mind many times in life, and it’s not because the universe forced you – it’s because your priorities changes, you learned new information, or you just had a change of heart.

Are They Truly Your Soulmate?

Before we dive into how to manifest an ex back, it’s important to take a long, hard look at your relationships and try to determine if this person is truly your soulmate or twin flame.

Start by reading through these signs that your partner is deeply in love with you.

Take note of how many of them applied to your partner. If you find that the majority of them don’t apply, then it’s likely that your ex wasn’t your soulmate and so you should really think about whether it’s best to move forward instead of trying to manifest them back.

If most of the items on the list DO apply, then there’s a good chance that your ex truly was in love with you and quite possibly is your soulmate. Perhaps they broke up with you because they simply needed some time alone, and you will be able to manifest your ex back.

Maybe there are outside influences (people who don’t agree with your relationship, for example) and your ex listened to the words of naysayers instead of listening to their heart. That is another classic example of when it would be possible to manifest your ex back.

How to Manifest an Ex Back

1. Set an Intention

The first step to manifest an ex back is to set an intention. It’s not enough to merely say “I want my ex back.” You need to be specific, because specificity is the basis of all powerful intention.

You need to be absolutely certain of your intention, because doubt is one of the biggest obstacles in manifesting anything, including getting your ex back.

Instead of saying “I want my ex back,” try to rephrase it, making sure you’re being specific.

“I want to have a strong, happy, healthy romantic relationship with my ex” is an example of telling the universe exactly what you want.

There’s no vagueness here. Presumably, you don’t want to get back with your ex if it’s going to be a volatile, unhappy relationship. And I’m going to assume that you want to know how to manifest an ex back in the romantic sense (and not just a friendship) so make sure you put that out to the universe.

2. Get Into Alignment

The next step to manifesting your ex back is getting into alignment. This is one of the biggest keys to successful manifestation.

Everything in life is energy, and everything in life is connected.

The Law of Attraction states that “like attracts like.” High vibrations attract more high vibrations and low vibrations attract more low vibrations.

When you have high vibrational energy, you’ll feel happy and light. You’re not constantly worrying about the future or feeling stressed. You’re in alignment with the universe and you’re safe in the knowledge that your life is unfolding exactly how it’s meant to unfold.

To get into alignment:

  • Live as if what you want has already happened
  • Think positive instead of focusing on the negatives
  • Express gratitude for what you currently have
  • Be present in the moment

3. Visualize

Contrary to what you may think, the universe can’t read your mind. The universe can’t distinguish between a dream you had and what you actually experienced and are now remembering or thinking about.

This is why visualization is an important key in manifesting your ex back. When you master visualization, you’re not simply daydreaming about what you want.

Instead, you’re putting yourself in a place where you have achieved your desire. This allows you to feel exactly how you would feel if you were back with your ex, which helps to ignite your subconscious mind.

The more you visualize, the more the universe starts to get the right signals, and the more likely you are to manifest your ex back.

4. Journal

There’s a reason why journaling is always recommended for manifesting – because it works.

There are a number of different journaling techniques but the most effective for manifesting an ex back is scripting.

Scripting is a popular manifesting technique where you write what you want in the present tense, as if it’s already happened.

So instead of writing “I want to manifest my ex back,” when you’re scripting you would write something like “I’m so grateful that John and I are back together” (obviously use your ex’s name, “John” is just an example.)

One of the easiest ways to ensure that you’re scripting correctly is to remember the “I am” rule. The “I am” rule simply means that instead of starting a sentence with “I want to” or “I will” you write “I am.”

Remember, you’re writing in the present tense, as if what you’re manifesting has already happened.

5. Trust The Universe

Once you’ve mastered all of the above steps and you’re doing them regularly, it’s time to surrender to the universe and trust that it has your back.

As much as you may want to, surrendering to the universe isn’t as easy as it sounds. If you’re a type-A personality, it can be especially difficult to give up control. Fortunately, surrendering to the universe doesn’t mean completely giving up control or just sitting back and doing nothing.

In fact, the opposite is true. The Law of Attraction requires work and taking action (as evidenced by the steps outlined above.) Surrendering to the universe simply means trusting that the universe wants what is best for you, and that it has your back.

Reasons Why You Are Not Manifesting Your Ex

If you’ve been following the above steps and you’re not manifesting your ex back, there are a number of reasons why that may be.

1. Free Will

The most important reason is free will, as mentioned earlier. Everyone has free will and the universe doesn’t force anyone to do anything.

Just like the universe wants what is best for you, it also wants what is best for your ex. If you and your ex are not meant to be together, then the universe won’t force it.

But don’t let that get you down. The good news is, fate brings soulmates together. Your person is out there and you’ll find them when the time is right.

2. You’re Not 100% Comfortable

If you’re not 100% comfortable with what you want to manifest, it won’t happen. And this often ties in with number 1 on this list – free will.

Free will relates to your ex, but it also relates to you, too. When you’re experiencing a recent breakup and you’re feeling fresh heartbreak, it’s common to want to manifest your ex back.

But as painful as it may be to admit right now, that may not actually be the right thing. If your ex isn’t your soulmate and you’re not meant to be together, then you may notice that you have this niggling feeling deep down inside when you’re manifesting.

It’s that inner voice, that intuition that’s telling you that perhaps this person isn’t right for you and maybe breaking up was actually the right decision. Take some time to think about how you felt during your relationship – are you ignoring the negatives and looking through rose-colored glasses?

3. Inconsistency

Like most things in life, successful manifestation requires consistency. If you’re only following the steps on this list of how to manifest an ex every now and then, then it’s not going to happen.

If you truly want to manifest your ex back, then you need to be dedicated and consistent. Practice your scripting everyday. Focus on your mindset, making sure you’re in alignment for manifesting. Regularly visualize what you desire and trust the universe.

Manifesting your ex back is possible. Set an intention, get into alignment, visualize your ideal situation, journal regularly and then let go and trust the universe will give you what is best for you.
