14 signs your ex is manifesting you (clear & obvious signs)

You break up with someone, and you think that’s the end of it. You get on with your life, put the past behind you, and move forward.

But then something strange happens:

You find yourself thinking about that person a lot, and when this happens, you can’t get them out of your mind.

It’s almost as if they’re still in your life… except they aren’t.

Except they definitely aren’t – so why do you keep thinking about them?

Here’s the surprising answer:

The phenomenon is called “manifesting”, or bringing something or someone into reality through concentrated thought and action.

But how can you be sure that your ex is manifesting you?

It’s easy to dismiss this phenomenon as being a complete coincidence, but there are a number of clear & obvious signs that you’re being manifested by your ex.

So, let’s have a look at them!

1) You have a strong gut feeling about what’s happening to you

Since you’re here, reading this article, the first obvious sign that you’re being manifested by your ex is that you have a feeling that’s true and you’re looking for a confirmation.

But should you trust your intuition?

Here’s what Dr. Geil Browning, an expert in human behavior and thinking says:

“The brain uses a combination of logic and emotion when making decisions of any kind. That specific emotion, innate to us as humans, is intuition. We possess the capacity to feel, and thereby the ability to know things without consciously reasoning. The “gut feeling” is real, and we use it all the time.”

In other words, your gut feeling is telling you that your ex is manifesting you, but logic tells you that it’s just a coincidence.

In this case, it’s okay to listen to your gut feeling, and it’s okay to trust what your intuition is telling you. On top of that, you can look for other signs.

2) Your thoughts are unwillingly focused on your ex

When someone is manifesting you, they are deliberately trying to bring you into their life, so their mind is focused squarely on you.

You might say that your ex’s thoughts are like a magnet, and you’re the metal. They’re thinking about you, and in turn, you’re thinking about them.

This is especially true if your thoughts are not intentional, and you’re thinking about your ex spontaneously or when you don’t want to.

In the absence of any trigger that would compel you to think about your ex, if you find yourself thinking about them unprompted, then that’s a pretty clear sign that they’re manifesting you.

How is this possible?

Well, manifestation in general is possible thanks to the Law of Attraction. Simply put, the Law of Attraction states that our thoughts and intentions attract events and people into reality.

According to this law, you can use your thoughts to draw things you want and need into your life.

And that’s exactly what your ex is doing.

3) Your emotions are being manipulated

The other thing that can happen when someone wants to manifest you is that they might try to get you to feel certain emotions in order to encourage your manifestation.

To be more precise, you might experience mood changes that you can’t explain; that have no logical explanation.

You might feel nostalgic, or emotional for no apparent reason, or you might feel sensitive or overwhelmed by feelings of loss.

You might be thinking that this is just a coincidence, or that those feelings are totally unrelated to your ex, but let me stop you right here and share with you what Nato Lagidze, writer for Love Connection thinks:

“Such emotional change is a sign that someone is manifesting you.

Not only your emotions, but you might even notice a sudden change in your energy levels. Still, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s just someone’s way of contacting you through exchanging energies.”

So, if you find yourself feeling different, or having sudden mood changes, it might be a sign that your ex is manifesting you. They want you to miss them and remember you lost them.

4) Your mind is clouded and you need guidance

Listen, if your ex is manifesting you, your mind might be a little clouded and you might need guidance to see things clearly.

Looking for signs they’re manifesting you might not be the best thing to do right now. That’s why I want to share a secret with you:

At a time when I was trying to manifest my ex back into my life, I had absolutely no patience to see if my manifestation techniques were working or not.

I wanted to know for sure whether what I was doing was effective or not. The uncertainty was killing me and it was weakening my belief that I could truly manifest him back as my life partner.

There was really no way of telling except by asking a spiritual advisor. As you can imagine, I had zero trust in the answer I would get.

But, one night, I found Psychic Source, a team of genuine and trustworthy psychics who are great at providing insightful answers to your questions.

I didn’t even have to share many details about my situation because the advisor I had spoken to immediately knew what I was asking her.

She told me that I was manifesting him back into my life, and I could look forward to a new chapter in my relationship with him!

That was the reassurance that I needed, and it did not let me down. The advisor’s confidence gave me the determination to push on with my manifestation methods.

I am glad to say this worked for me and I’m sure they can help you, too – especially if you’re the one being manifested.

5) You think you see your ex everywhere you go

Another obvious sign that your ex is manifesting you is that you have the impression that you see them, but in fact, they are not there.

You might think you see them at places you used to go together, or at places you had never visited with them.

You might think you see their face in a crowd or have a feeling that they’re watching you as you do something. But, as soon as you try to get a clearer look, they’re gone!

And it’s not just your imagination, trust me!

How so?

Well, it’s because you might be visited by their loving thoughts and affirmations that are trying to get your attention.

I know this may sound weird, but that’s how their energy reaches you.

6) You feel compelled to go to certain places

Want to know more?

If your ex is indeed manifesting you, then their energy should be powerful enough to draw you to certain places.

But, can a person’s thoughts really be that powerful?

“A sign that someone is manifesting you is you feel unexplainably drawn to them,” writes Kenneth Wong, author of Feeling Good: The Secret To Manifesting.

“When someone is channeling high vibrational energies like love, their energy becomes super attractive,” he adds.

What does this mean?

Basically, you feel compelled to go think about your ex and go to certain places due to their energy. That’s what makes them able to manifest their thoughts!

It’s their energy and the power of their thoughts that make them effective. And, you are feeling the same energy and thoughts that they’re manifesting you with!

7) You dream about your ex more often

Here’s another clear sign that your ex is manifesting you:

You start dreaming about them more often.

That’s another reason why you should pay close attention to your dreams. They’re super important and significant gifts that help you understand what’s happening to you on a deeper level.

Now, this doesn’t mean that your dreams should be romantic or erotic. It’s enough that you dream about them.

Your ex doesn’t purposely enter your dream as if they are a higher being. They send you a loving thought or an affirmation that reaches you during your sleep.

And you dream about them because they focus their energy on that thought or affirmation.

That’s how it works!

8) A feeling of déjà vu hits you every now and then

I know it might sound strange, but déjà vu is another great way of knowing if your ex is manifesting you.

How so?

To truly understand why here’s how Britannica defines déjà vu:

“The feeling that you have already experienced something that is actually happening for the first time.”

So, how could something like this be related to your ex manifesting you?

Well, it’s simple! Your ex imagined that particular moment when you had the déjà vu feeling.

They imagined you doing or experiencing the same thing that you did!

This all sounds very supernatural, but in reality, your ex is manifesting you. And, in the process of doing so, they send you a déjà vu feeling.

If you’re having problems wrapping your mind around this, I recommend talking to someone from Psychic Source.

Their advisors are experienced in using the Law of Attraction and truly know how it works.

They can explain to you the reason why this happens and give you detailed techniques to use to calm your feelings of déjà vu or enhance them, depending on what you want to achieve.

What’s more, they can tell you whether you’re experiencing a spiritual attack or if it’s really your ex manifesting you.

9) You get random reminders of your ex in the form of “coincidences”

Have you ever heard of synchronicities?

It’s a concept that was introduced by Carl Gustav Jung, the founder of analytical psychology and it basically states that we can find “meaning in the coexistence of events that are not causally related.”

Now, this might sound like a lot of hocus pocus but that’s what Dr. Chopra, clinical professor and author of over 90 books thinks about it.

In other words, if you start seeing things that remind you of your ex or hearing things for that matter, then it’s a clear sign that they are the one who is manifesting you.

This “coincidence” might be in the form of a TV show that you’ve watched with your ex. It might also be in the form of a song that was played at a place you visited with your ex.

Or it might be in the form of something you see or hear in your environment. For example, if you see a girl who looks like your ex, then it’s definitely a signal that she’s manifesting you!

Why? Because they are reminding you of them and giving you the message they are still around!

10) Your friends or family members mention your ex

The 10th clear sign that your ex is manifesting you is when you hear one of your friends or family members mention them.

This is true especially if they don’t usually talk or ask about your ex.

How so?

Well, if you notice a sudden change in their interest in your ex, then it could be thanks to your ex’s manifestation efforts.

They’re sending you a message saying that they are still around and thinking about you!

If you observe something like this, then you can take it as an obvious sign that your ex is the one manifesting you.

11) You feel like they are watching over you

The 11th clear sign that your ex is manifesting you is feeling like they are watching over you. I know it might sound weird and supernatural, but that’s how all this works!

Here’s what you need to understand:

Your ex doesn’t have to be looking over you literally.

All they have to do is send out the right energy and thoughts and you will feel exactly that!

In other words, if your ex really cares about you and if they want to keep in touch with you, then they will focus their energy on keeping in touch with you. And, this includes closely watching over you!

Doing just that, however, requires a lot of effort.

12) You keep seeing the same repetitive number

Earlier, we talked about synchronicities.

Another example of synchronicity is when you see repetitive numbers more than once.

Aside from these being a sign that your ex is manifesting you, they also carry messages for the person who sees them.

Also called angel numbers, these divine numbers are meant to guide you or warn you about your present and your future.

They come in the form of repeating digits, such as 33, 11:11, or 12:12. They can also come in the form of recurring patterns, such as 1234 or 222.

For example, if you see angel number 222, that’s one of the best signs for your love life.

According to Doreen Virtue, in her book Angel Numbers 101: The Meaning of 111, 123, 444, and Other Number Sequences, when you see angel number 222 you should:

“Trust that everything is working out exactly as it’s supposed to, with Divine blessings for everyone involved. Let go and have faith.”

In other words, if the signs point to your ex manifesting you, then you should know that everything is going to be okay in the end. You’re supposed to be together.

13) You feel an urge to contact your ex

This is a very clear sign of your ex manifesting you.

Why is that?

Well, if you sense an urge to contact them, then it’s very likely that your ex is the one trying to get in touch with you.

It could be a sign that they are sending you a message on behalf of themselves or it could be a sign that your ex has manifested themselves through your need to contact them.

In any case, they are trying to tell you something or expressing their wish or desire for you to contact them.

So, if this happens to you, then I highly recommend thinking twice before contacting them.

You want to make sure that you contact them for the right reasons and not because you feel an inexplicable urge to do so.

14) The signs are making you feel highly uncomfortable

In case you don’t want your ex back, their attempts to manifest you back into their life could make you feel incredibly uncomfortable.

To be more precise, you might feel like they’re invading your personal space, that they are stalking you without knowing it, or that they are again projecting their thoughts and emotions onto you.

If this is true, then it’s safe to assume that your ex is manifesting you.

Your ex is manifesting you – Now what?

Being manifested by someone can be a strange feeling and it’s important to understand that.

It’s weird because you might feel like you’re being controlled by your ex or that they’re sending you a message through your surroundings.

However, despite what’s happening to you, you don’t have to give in if getting back together with your ex is not what you want.

After all, you’re the one in charge!

Just because your ex is trying to manifest you, it doesn’t mean that you have to go along with them.

If something is not in your best interest, then there’s nothing wrong with saying ‘no’.

In my case, my ex wanted me back and maybe that’s why it worked so well.

But, remember, a relationship is a two-way street. You are responsible for your actions and choices as well as your ex.

So, if you don’t want to get back together with your ex, but all the signs point to them wanting you back, then there are a few ways to stop them from manifesting you.

Here are a few of them:

3 ways to stop your ex from manifesting you

According to Tina Fey, author of Win Your Ex Back eBook and founder of Love Connection, there are 3 main ways to stop your ex from manifesting you:

Talk to your ex and set clear boundaries

“Communicating boundaries in order to stop someone from manifesting you can be difficult. But if you’re willing to go through a bit of initial discomfort, you will soon get used to it and your relationships will feel all the better for it,” says Tina Fey.

In other words, the best way to stop this from happening is to talk to your ex and tell them you’re not going to be their puppet – but in nicer words.

Do your best to raise your vibration

The next step would be to raise your vibration

Clear yourself of negative emotions and thoughts so you can recognize when someone is manifesting you and have a positive mindset that will allow you to receive what you truly want – not what others want.

Also, try to focus on yourself and what you need and want so you can live your life in the best reality possible.

Boost your spiritual protection

And lastly, you could engage in spiritual protection.

In order to do that, make sure that you’re surrounded by positive people, such as your friends and family.

Make sure that everything around you is supporting your growth and your happiness.

It’s also a good idea to start meditating or regularly engage in positive and spiritual activities.

With these steps, you will be able to stop your ex from manifesting you.

To help you on your journey, keep William Ernest Henley’s words in mind from his poem Invictus:

“I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul.”


By now you should know whether your ex is manifesting you or not.

If you want to get back together with them, then that’s great! Their efforts are paying off and there’s proof that manifesting really works.

If you don’t want this person back into your life, then it’s time to set some boundaries and deal with the situation in the best way possible.

Either way, remember that you’re in control of your life and you have the power to change things in your favor.

There’s no reason why you should let someone else control your destiny.

Love is a journey and it’s up to you to take the right path that will lead you to happiness and success.
