There is a common phrase, “birds before land,” inspired by ocean sailors, which means seeing birds indicates that land is just beyond the horizon. In manifestation, “birds before land” is a concept that can be used to describe the process of your desires in their initial stages of materializing in your life.

- Birds before land is a sign from the universe that your manifestation is near.
- Manifestation is a process, and it’s essential to let it unfold naturally. Otherwise, you can prevent yourself from experiencing your desires.
- There are many signs that you are allowing your desire to finally manifest, such as feeling whole and complete, learning to let go, and having indirect manifestations.
Signs your manifestations are on the way
There are many signs that your manifestations are approaching, where you may begin to see the “birds” before the “land.” For example, if you’re trying to manifest a relationship with a specific person, signs that your efforts are effective may be hearing their name, seeing the same car they drive, or receiving an out-of-the-blue call or text from them.
Say you’re trying to manifest a new job and have been investing your time and efforts into visualizing yourself in this position for a while now. You may bring to experience signs such as hearing about a job opening from a friend or feeling increasingly uninterested in your current job.
When manifesting anything, your current life must change to become assimilated to the reality you desire. The change may come externally or from your intentions and actions. If nothing changes, life will continue to be the same.
Birds before land may happen without you even being aware; in most cases, you won’t be at first. Subtle changes in your life will begin to happen as soon as you begin manifesting.
To make it to land, you must continue the journey, not turn away from your path, and continue forward until your feet touch the sand.

Signs you’re allowing your manifestations to come to fruition
Letting Go of Resistance
One of the most powerful indicators that your manifestation is approaching is that you release resistance to it. For example, say you’re trying to manifest financial abundance but continuously focus on your current lack.
Once you change your focus to a state of gratitude and appreciation for your current financial place, you’re opening the door to experiencing more gratitude and abundance in your life. When you enter a place of no longer resisting what you’re trying to run away from, accepting it for what it is, and recognizing your ability to change your circumstances, you will experience the birds begin to soar, showing you that your manifestation is approaching.

Feeling At Peace
Manifestation isn’t meant to be stressful or anxiety-ridden. Many times, people come to manifestation trying to find a way to help them out of their current challenges.
For example, if you’re trying to manifest a relationship that ended poorly, there is likely a lot of anxiety and lower-energy emotions attached to this desire. Manifesting from this state is difficult as it empowers the relationship’s negative aspects.
If you have the true intent and desire to manifest the relationship, with enough time, you’ll allow yourself to let go of the intense ‘need’ for it and begin to trust the process. The universe knows what you desire even if you don’t express it verbally.
So, once you’re able to find a sense of peace and let go of any highly charged emotions in regard to your situation, you’re opening the door to welcoming the amended version of it into your life, which also brings with it more feelings of peace and contentment.

Feeling whole and complete
You are manifesting your current reality every moment and every second of your life. People often associate large changes or experiences with manifestation because they have a strong desire or need to be fulfilled.
It’s important to understand that nothing outside of you can make you whole or complete; this has to come from within. There will be a stage along your manifestation journey where you begin to make the necessary changes you believe will help welcome your desire into your life.
As you make these changes, not only are you setting the energetic tone for manifesting your desires, but you’re also bettering yourself along the way. This process can help you feel more whole and complete and take away from the strong desire or need for your manifestation to happen.
Once you reach this point in your journey, anything you set your mind to can be yours because it’s no longer coming from a place of lack but rather thinking you would appreciate experiencing it.
When you’re in a state of allowing, your conscious manifestations can appear much more quickly. A sign that your manifestation is near is having others appear in your life.
For example, if you’re trying to manifest a relationship with a specific person, you may start manifesting dates or hearing from previous relationships. This happens because you are embodying the energy of being loved and in a loving relationship, and the universe is bringing in many options for you to choose from.
Birds before land isn’t your final destination
If a sailor who was lost at sea stopped his journey at first sight of birds, he would not make it anywhere. The same is true for manifestation; never stop at the first signs of your desire coming to pass.
The ‘birds’ are just an encouraging sign that you’re on the right path and to continue with your efforts. If you stop at this point and haven’t invested enough time or energy into your manifestation, you may revert to old patterns of beliefs, thoughts, and actions, leading you in the opposite direction of your desire.
As you begin to try to manifest anything, there’s always a process that follows, and you may see small glimpses of success before you’ve actually made it anywhere near land. Birds before the land is a sign from the universe, telling you that your efforts are noticed and to continue forward until you’re fully living in your manifestations.
