There may come a time in your life that you well, start to miss your ex. Some can say this should never happen because obviously, things ended for a reason, so why would you miss someone you’re no longer with? But, for some, this can be a good thing and a chance at reconnecting and reigniting a once burned-out flame.

So first, what does it mean to manifest? The definition of manifestation is to make it happen. To manifest something means to visualize your desires and harness the power of your imagination to make it a reality. In short, manifesting means making your dreams come true.

If you’re familiar with manifestation then you know it comes with an equal amount of energy being focused on gratitude. It’s a crucial part of the law of attraction. Maybe you’ve been feeling extra lonely lately or emotionally dissatisfied with your current partner. Recently I was dreaming about an ex and their new partner which had me completely freaked out.

So, what does it all mean? A possible cause for dreaming about an ex may be recalling past trauma in your relationship. Right now, you’re probably just needing to feel appreciated and recognized – maybe this is by your ex or your new partner. You may feel jealous of how your ex is happy with someone else. You may try to draw a comparison between you both because you feel insecure and unhappy.

And so, you may even try to make your ex’s partner seem less capable so that you can feel superior. Whatever it is, if you’re dreaming about your ex or manifesting your ex back, there is an underlying reason.

Having a burning desire to reunite with someone doesn’t have to be a negative thing. Maybe that person has changed, maybe the time apart helped you to change. Maybe you were both at different places in the relationship when you were together. Unless there was a history of cheating, habitual lying, or physical or emotional abuse, it’s okay to miss your ex and want to try to get back together. The following celebrities have all done it and things have worked out well.

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade – According to NBA player Dwayne Wade, his brief split from Gabrielle Union was just what the couple needed to move forward into a healthy space.

Kate Middleton and Prince William – Their brief split in 2007 wasn’t final, and the couple went on to make headlines in 2011 with their lavish wedding ceremony and reception that captivated the world.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard – Before they became the picture-perfect Hollywood couple, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell came out on the other side of a split.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake – After linking up in 2007, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel briefly called it quits in 2011 before reuniting just five months later. Back together and more committed to their union, the couple got engaged two months after and married just one year later.

When you’re ready to manifest your ex back you have to do a few things:

Be PRECISE – The universe is not going to ask you what you want, you have to be the one to visualize it in your mind to the best of your abilities and then request just that. I remember before meeting one of my exes, I had my hand on the steering wheel of my work van and I specifically stated all the things I wanted in my next boyfriend – I met exactly that in my now ex-boyfriend four days later. At the time I had no idea I was manifesting a relationship, but it happened. What I forgot to do was add ‘loyal’ and ‘husband’ to the list. So, don’t forget to add those things.

Be PATIENT – Trust the process. Manifestation does not happen overnight. It’s up to you to find out what you want, to ask, and then wait. Just believe and spread positive energy. One of the best ways to re-attract your ex is to be happy and confident. If you’ve already set your eyes on the prize (them) then you need to do some work in the interim.

Be FREE – Energy is everything! You can only manifest love if you believe you are ready for it. Your ex may be the love of your life, but do you believe that? Deep down you must know this person is a part of your destiny. There should be no doubt in your mind or any thoughts that something bad might happen. Overcome the self-doubt and lies you tell yourself because the energy of love is vulnerable, grateful, and joyful.

Be ASSERTIVE – Manifesting is one thing, but obsession is another. Be sure that you feel a connection with your ex first. Do not let them abuse you, ridicule you or otherwise walk all over you just because you want to be in their presence. That would mean you are completely devaluing yourself and your ex will devalue you as well.

Be VISUAL – Practice a wide range of visualization exercises that may help you use the law of attraction to win your ex back. A technique we recommend is Shakti Gawain’s Pink Bubble Technique. Let’s try it…

Maybe you and your ex are back in love, taking a road trip, or enjoying a lovely vacation. Or holding hands, strolling down the beach on a romantic date. Whatever works for you.

Now, take that image and in your mind’s eye, put it inside a big—beautiful pink bubble… and “send” it up through the sky. The floating away of the pink bubble is representative of you “letting go” of the intention, as you’ve seen that it has already happened.

Sending the bubble/intention away up into the universe is symbolic of you not worrying or stressing about it anymore, and letting the universe bring it down to you. If you and your ex rekindled your love tell us about it in the comments below and share this article to help others who may be feeling the same way.
