    What Is The Pillow Method For Manifestation?

    The pillow method is one of the simplest and most straightforward manifestation games you can regularly practice to help you create the life you desire. This is a great practice for new and experienced manifestors alike, as you can choose how in-depth with this method you want to go.

    So how do you practice the pillow manifestation method?

    These are the most basic directions: write an affirmation on a piece of paper and place that paper under your pillow for a set amount of days. Let that affirmation be the last thing you think about as you fall asleep, allowing it to sink into your subconscious brain. Let go, surrender control, and allow the Universe to deliver your manifestation in your physical experience.

    Now, if you stopped right there, you’d have enough information to try this manifestation method tonight. But to get the most out of this practice, there are a few additional steps you can take (that really don’t take much additional time at all).

    In this article, you’ll learn how to write effective affirmations for the pillow method as well as how to incorporate scripting into your nightly manifestation routine. Plus, I’ll share some of my favorite resources that you can use today to amplify your manifestation practice.

    How To Write Affirmations For The Pillow Method

    The affirmations you write for this manifestation method aren’t the typical mindset affirmations you often hear, such as “I am worthy.” (Though you absolutely can write mindset affirmations and place them under for your pillow to positively influence your subconscious beliefs.)

    For the pillow method, you’re going to use what I typically refer to as future pacing affirmations.

    These are affirmations in which you state that what you want to manifest is already yours. For instance, if you want to manifest financial prosperity, you might write something like, “Financial abundance continually flows my way through multiple streams of income.”

    You could also write, “I am financially free with a limitless abundance of wealth and prosperity.”

    Likewise, if you want to manifest love, you might write, “I am in a committed, loving relationship with a partner who truly cherishes and adores me.”

    To manifest a job, you could write, “I am in my dream job, making a positive difference in people’s lives and doing what I love every single day.” (If there’s a specific job you want, then replace “dream job” with the title of your ideal position.)

    Here are the keys to writing a successful affirmation to use for the pillow method:

    • Use present tense statements such as I am, I feel, and I have – not “I will be . . .”
    • Choose something that feels truly good to you and you believe wholeheartedly that you can manifest. Don’t write, “I am a millionaire,” if you don’t truly believe this is possible for you. Take baby steps as you reprogram your subconscious beliefs, and do any necessary healing within. Maybe one day, you will be able to write those four words, but don’t force it right now if it doesn’t feel good to you.
    • If you’re a beginner, try not to be too rigid with the timeframe. Again, at some point, you might be able to include a timeframe in your affirmation. But I’ve found that when you’re just starting out, putting a timeframe on your manifestation can make you so preoccupied and stressed about the self-imposed deadline that you can’t simply relax and allow the manifestation to unfold naturally.

    Incorporating Scripting Into The Pillow Method

    Another practice I like to incorporate into the pillow method is scripting. Scripting is the practice of writing about your dreams and desires in story-like form, as if you already possess everything you want to manifest. It’s similar to the future pacing affirmations I described above, but instead of writing one sentence, you’re writing paragraphs dedicated to immersing yourself in the life of your dreams.

    For instance, you can script what it feels like to walk through a day in your dream life. You can also script as though you’re writing a journal entry. In your journal entry, imagine that it’s the end of the day, and you’re living the life of your dreams. How did you feel when you woke up today? Where were you? What did you do and who did you interact with throughout your day? Describe it all in detail, using all of your senses.

    To incorporate scripting into your pillow method, think about what you want to manifest. Then, script what your life would look like if you already had this thing. Describe it in full detail, allowing yourself to feel all the positive emotions of having your desire in the present moment.

    In the energy of love and gratitude, place your script under the pillow. Before you fall asleep at night, take a moment to once again visualize having your desires right now. Feel positive energy flowing through you: love, gratitude, joy, freedom, peace, and true abundance.

    To learn more about scripting, you can read my article about scripting here. (You also get a free PDF scripting template!)

    scripting journal

    How Long Should You Keep Your Affirmation Under Your Pillow?

    There are a lot of differing opinions here. Some people say to continue to keep your affirmation or script under your pillow until your manifestation comes true. Some say 7 or 8 days. I’ve also seen recommendations of less and more time.

    At the end of the day, you’re empowered to do what feels right to you. My personal belief is that you shouldn’t just continue to keep your piece of paper under your pillow until it comes true. Why? Because then you’re never truly letting it go. And this is a key component to manifesting your desires: letting go, releasing your dreams to the Universe, and trusting that everything is unfolding exactly as it’s meant to.

    For this reason, I generally recommend keeping your note under your pillow for 7 to 10 days. This gives you enough time to allow this desired manifestation to become an inextricable part of you without clinging too tightly for too long.

    Again, though, I urge you to do what feels right. Don’t worry too much about arbitrary rules and guidelines. Follow your inner knowing.

    Other Resources To Use To Amplify Your Practice

    For the pillow method to work, all you truly need is a writing device and something to write on. The magic of this practice doesn’t come from outside of yourself; it comes from you. More than anything, I want you to embrace your own inner magic and not rely too much on outside materials. A plain piece of notebook paper works just as well as fancy stationary; it only matters what makes you feel good.

    So with that said, I’m adding just a few items here that I personally use and find helpful in amplifying my manifestations. Again, none of these things can come close to matching the power you possess within. What they do is amplify and support your goals, protect you from negative energy, and help you to cultivate more positive energy in your inner and outer worlds. (And maybe bring you a little bit of luck!)

    Crystals & Gemstones

    I’m a big proponent of crystals, not just for manifestation but for supporting your entire health and well-being: mind, body, and soul. At all times, I have Citrine, Green Jade, Black Tourmaline, and Blue Lace Agate rings on as well as a Clear Quartz bracelet. I sleep with Amethyst on my nightstand. There’s Pyrite on my desk, and just a few feet away from my desk is a collection of over a dozen crystals and gemstones.

    I’ve found that using crystals in my daily routine just makes me feel better. They protect my energy and help me to approach each day with a sense of calm, clarity, and confidence.

    If you’re using the pillow method for manifestation, it definitely never hurts to incorporate a few crystals and gemstones into your routine. After cleansing and charging your crystals with your intentions (learn how to do this here), keep them on your nightstand as you sleep.

    Here’s a brief rundown of crystals you can use depending on what you want to manifest. In this article, I go more in depth on using crystals for manifestation.

    • Love: Rose Quartz, Rhodonite
    • Wealth: Citrine, Pyrite
    • Health: Garnet, Bloodstone
    • Creativity: Carnelian
    • Success: Green Jade, Aventurine

    Manifestation Oils

    Manifestation oils are specialized blends of essential oils and herbs formulated to aid you in manifesting your desires. There are lots of ways you can use manifestation oils: add a drop to a piece of jewelry, your vision board, a dollar bill, a photograph or letter, or another object that represents your desires and intentions. You can also add a drop to your body; just make sure the product you’re using is safe to use for this purpose.

    For the pillow method, you can add a drop of your chosen manifestation oil to your piece of paper before placing it under your pillow. I personally use manifestation oils because they help to lift my energy so I’m more open to receiving guidance and answers from the Universe. I’ve also found that they tend to bring me an extra dash of luck, which is always welcome. (And they also smell really good.)

    I’m a big fan of Art of the Root products, which you can find more of here.

    Recap

    The pillow method is a simple yet profound method for manifesting your desires. To follow this method, here are the basic steps:

    • Decide what you want to manifest.
    • Create a powerful future pacing affirmation rooted in your desire. Conversely, you can also use an entire scripting entry here. Write this affirmation or scripting entry on a piece of paper.
    • Place the piece of paper under your pillow.
    • Before you fall asleep at night, visualize having your desire in the present moment, feeling all the positive emotions of having what you want to manifest.
    • Continue for 7 to 10 days, or until it feels right to remove it.
    • Let go. Surrender control to the Universe. Trust.

    In this post, discover 40 positive affirmations for overcoming challenges, facing adversity, and getting through hard times with dignity and grace. Use these affirmations to guide you in your journey and help you to find your inner courage during all seasons of your life.

    Facing Challenges and Adversity

    I use positive affirmations often throughout my day, but I’ve found that the times I need them the most is when I’m facing a challenge or difficult situation. However, in order for a positive affirmation to truly help me with the challenge I’m facing, I can’t just say something positive; I have to truly feel it in my bones.

    What does this mean?

    Let’s say you wake up knowing that today’s going to be a particularly difficult day. You look at yourself in the mirror, take a deep breath, and say, “I have all the tools I need to handle anything that comes my way today.”

    These words alone won’t help you – not if you don’t truly believe them.

    And beyond that, you have to live them as well.

    That means that when you’re dealing with obstacles and challenges, instead of giving in to the negative feelings that weigh down on you, you have to go back to your empowering words. Repeat them. Feel them. Live them.

    I have all the tools I need to handle anything that comes my way today.

    I am strong, capable, and competent.

    I’ve got this.

    But it doesn’t stop here.

    Because it isn’t really just about “handling” or “getting through” obstacles and roadblocks.

    It’s about knowing in your heart that these hard times are serving some kind of purpose. It’s about being willing to receive the lessons that the difficult moments can teach you. It’s about discovering the beauty that can be found in life’s messy moments.

    And it’s also about trusting that if things aren’t working out the way you want them to, it’s often because something better is coming.

    To be clear, this doesn’t mean you should engage in toxic positivity. You don’t have to force yourself to pretend that the hardships don’t hurt.

    One of the most profound experiences I’ve encountered over the last several years was when I was going through a rough patch, and I found myself crying daily, feeling sad and lost and uncertain about my future.

    I allowed myself to feel all of that pain, but even in the sadness, I still had deep trust that everything would work out for me. I knew in my heart that I would become stronger for this experience. I gave myself permission to explore the depths of my emotions fully while still knowing that the universe would support me and have my back no matter what.

    After walking through that experience with faith and trust, I became a little less afraid of future challenges and roadblocks. I knew that in some way, every experience I encountered was a gift, no matter how heavy the world often felt.

    I believe we’re all capable of handling so much more than we realize. You are so much stronger and braver and more powerful than you know. You have the ability to face any obstacle, and you also have the ability to step back and discover how your greatest challenges can often be your greatest gifts.

    Below are 40 positive affirmations for overcoming challenges, facing adversity, and walking through hard times with dignity and grace. I hope these affirmations remind you that you are strong, capable, and resilient, and that you are capable of meeting all challenges with faith, courage, and undeniable resilience.

    How To Practice Gratitude (For Law Of Attraction)

    In this article, learn how to practice gratitude, with special emphasis on how gratitude can help you in the Law of Attraction as you set out to manifest your dreams and desires. Discover powerful methods, tips, and more to help you vibrate at the frequency of sincere gratitude and love today.

    how to practice gratitude
    Pin this for later! How To Practice Gratitude (For Law Of Attraction)

    What Is The Law Of Attraction?

    The foundation of the Law of Attraction is the idea that the energy you put out into the world is what you get back in return. This is intrinsically tied to the concept of manifestation, which is when you intentionally put out the energy of what you want to receive more of in your life. In manifestation terms, you’ll hear this referred to as vibrating at the frequency of your desires.

    For instance, let’s say you want to manifest romantic love. You’re ready to settle down and find that one person you can commit to and share your life with.

    Before, you might’ve felt like you weren’t truly lovable until you found that person. Essentially, you waited until love appeared in your life before you felt the positive emotions associated with love.

    But in manifestation, you don’t wait until your desire appears before you finally start feeling these positive emotions. Instead, you allow yourself to feel these positive emotions right now. How do you imagine feeling when your future partner appears in your life? Will they make you feel loved, respected, and treasured?

    What would happen if you allowed yourself to feel loved, respected, and treasured right now instead of waiting?

    This is the essence of manifestation.

    Now, let’s take it a step further. The most profound way to receive more love in your life is to give more love. Walk through your life with an open heart. Express love through your actions. Be the embodiment of love in your words and feelings.

    This isn’t limited to manifesting love, though. Do you want to manifest more success? Become the embodiment of success in your everyday world. Do you want to manifest financial wealth? Allow yourself to feel financially wealthy now. Walk into every life experience as though you are pure abundance.

    There’s a great quote by an anonymous source that sums up the essence of manifestation and the Law of Attraction perfectly:

    “What you think, you create. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you become.”

    In This Article:

    Gratitude & The Law Of Attraction

    So why is gratitude so important when it comes to the Law of Attraction?

    Simply put, gratitude and love are the highest vibrations you can tap into. (Other powerful positive vibrations include joy, empowerment, and freedom.)

    When you can tap into any of these feelings, you are vibrating at the highest frequencies available to you. Essentially, you become a magnet for experiences that bring you more joy, love, empowerment, freedom, and gratitude. (To learn more about this, check out my article on Abraham Hicks’ Emotional Guidance Scale here.)

    But gratitude in particular is especially powerful, and here’s why:

    • Gratitude invites an abundance mentality. Through the lens of gratitude, you view your life in terms of all that you have, not all that you lack.
    • When you express gratitude for all that you have, you’re essentially saying, “More of this please.” Expressing gratitude for the love that exists in your life invites more love to come forward. Expressing gratitude for the money you possess (even if it’s not a lot by other people’s standards) opens you up to receiving more money. It’s like putting an order into the Universe: “This is what I have that I really appreciate, and I’m open to receiving more of it.”
    • Gratitude erases feelings of desperation, frustration, and hopelessness. It can instantly lift you into a higher vibration in a way that most other feelings can’t. For instance, if you’re feeling frustrated, it’s really hard to tap into joy in that moment. But if you meet your frustration halfway by saying, “I’m frustrated by this experience, but I know there’s still so much in my life to be grateful for,” it becomes a little easier to lift your vibration.

    How To Practice Gratitude

    So what are the best methods for practicing gratitude when it comes to the Law of Attraction? There are lots of ways to practice gratitude, but the key to each method is sincerity. You can write down a couple things in your life you feel grateful for each morning, but are you doing it with a sincere heart? Or are you simply writing these things down because it’s what you think you’re “supposed” to do?

    One way to help you practice sincere gratitude is to include a “why” statement for each thing you acknowledge. This is helpful because it prompts you to truly think about how this thing is making a profound difference in your life.

    Here are some examples of how to do this:

    • I am grateful for my best friend because she always tells me exactly what I need to hear.
    • I am grateful for my home because it offers warmth, protection, and security.
    • I am grateful for my strong legs because they allow me to walk, run, hike, dance, and move my body in ways that feel good to me.

    Sincerity is the key to practicing gratitude when it comes to the Law of Attraction. Don’t simply acknowledge what you’re grateful for with empty words. Feel the depth of your gratitude deep within. Let it shine from the inside out and blanket every cell of your being.

    Methods For Practicing Gratitude

    Want to start a meaningful gratitude practice that will help you manifest more incredible people, things, and experiences to be grateful for? Here are some ways you can start:

    • Write down one to three things you feel sincerely grateful for each morning.
    • Keep a gratitude journal. (In this article, you’ll find 53 gratitude journal prompts to help you discover reasons to be thankful as you cultivate true joy within.)
    • Create phone notifications to go off at random times during the day. Each time you see one of these notifications, pause and think about something you feel grateful for in this moment.
    • Verbally express gratitude to the people in your life regularly. This includes people you know personally (family, friends, coworkers) as well as other people you interact with (baristas, cashiers, waiters, bank tellers).

    Tips For Practicing Gratitude To Manifest Your Desires

    Tip #1: Express gratitude for your manifestations before they’ve actually arrived in your present experience

    Don’t wait until you’ve received your desired manifestations to begin feeling grateful for them. Feel grateful for them right now, just as you will on the day when they actually come true.

    Why does this work? You may have heard of the phrase, “Live as if.” Manifestation is all about vibrating at the frequency of your desires, and there’s no better way to do that than to live each day as if all of your dreams have already come true.

    Feeling gratitude in advance directly correlates with the idea of living as if. If you’re constantly living in lack, waiting for something to happen and focusing on its absence, you disconnect yourself from the experience of having that thing. But when you live as if your dreams have already come true, you feel true gratitude and appreciation for this life of your dreams.

    And because of this, you’re no longer searching for that thing out there; it’s within. And when it’s within, you’re directly connected to that thing.

    Connect yourself to the life of your dreams by expressing sincere gratitude and appreciation for the abundance that already exists within. When you do this, you become a magnet for everything you could ever dream of (and more).

    scripting journal

    Tip #2: Express gratitude for challenges, obstacles, and negative experiences

    This is where the real magic happens.

    These experiences are your opportunities for growth. This is how you build resilience. Every single negative experience is providing you with a lesson you need to hear. Choosing gratitude in these moments is going to help you learn the lesson a lot faster than choosing frustration or anger.

    Your life will radically transform when you begin to understand how these experiences aren’t happening to you; they’re happening for you. (And the next step? As you become more and more conscious of your thoughts and inner state, experiences begin to happen through you.)

    Want to practice this now? Next time you’re driving and have to stop at a red light, inhale deeply and feel grateful for the opportunity to pause. When you’re stuck in a slow-moving line at the grocery store, stand still and allow yourself to feel appreciation for this moment in your life. Find normal, everyday experiences that usually bring you frustration, and consciously choose to feel gratitude instead.

    Nothing changes your life more than your perspective. When you consciously shift your perspective and understand the power of your thoughts, you master your inner world.

    And when you master your inner world, you master your life.

    Spiritual Healing

    Spiritual healing is the process of letting go of everything you aren’t in order to embrace what you are. It’s a path that leads you to uncovering the divinity that exists within yourself. And it’s a journey rooted in connection: connection with others, with love, with the universe, and with your own soul.

    For each of us, spiritual healing is a journey that brings us back home to ourselves when we’re feeling lost. It’s often a process of releasing, embracing, expanding, transforming, and sometimes just being.

    And it’s a reminder that you are your own greatest healer. You are your greatest guide. The answers you seek are always within.

    Below, discover 33 profound spiritual healing quotes to guide your path. These quotes are meant to help you love both the darkness and light within and gently lead you back home to yourself. Some quotes may resonate more than others in this moment. That’s completely okay. For now, take what you need.

    In the future, when you’re in a different place in your spiritual journey, you might come back and see if a different quote resonates and reveals something new for you.

    And if you’re feeling spiritually lost, know that it’s okay, too. Sometimes, being lost isn’t such a bad thing. The best thing you can do for yourself in this moment is to ask, “What does my soul need right now?”

    Then, whatever the answer is, go there. Give yourself what you need. Lean into love.

    Pin this for later! How to Manifest Someone in 6 Simple Steps

    Manifesting a Person

    How exactly do you manifest someone special into your life?

    This is one of the most common questions that comes up when people talk about manifestation, and to be honest, the topic can be a bit complex. Why? Because manifesting someone can be both super easy and not easy at all . . . at the same time.

    It’s easy in that it truly comes down to setting an intention, vibrating at the frequency of your desires, and preparing to receive your desired manifestation. And that’s not so bad, right?

    What makes it not so easy is that you may possess old wounds that need to be healed before you can truly allow someone into your life. The perfect person may come, but you need to be ready to let them in. And for some, that isn’t always as simple as it sounds. You’ll read more about this in Step 5: Connect to Your Heart Chakra.

    Below, I’m going to break down exactly how to manifest someone into your life with clear and easy-to-follow instructions. And to simplify it even further, I’ve put together a free workbook that will lead you through each step one at a time.

    Now, I want to note that while I’m mostly going to be focusing on manifesting a romantic relationship in this post, you can use these steps for non-romantic relationships (like manifesting a really awesome friendship) as well.

    And one last note: when you do these exercises, make them fun! Release the tension from your body. Lean into joy and positivity. Remember that you are worthy and deserving of wholehearted, unconditional love.

    In fact, you deserve to live the most beautiful life you can dream of for yourself. (And even then, you deserve to receive something even better than what you can imagine.)

    Are you ready to manifest someone special into your life?

    Let’s get started!

    Manifestation Workbook & Printables

    Looking for help to get you started with manifesting your dreams? I’ve created several resources that incorporate powerful exercises and practices to manifest the life your heart truly desires.

    The Dreams, Goals & Manifestation Printables are a PDF file filled with 153 content pages that are completely dedicated to helping you manifest your dream life. With these printables, you’ll find multiple calendars, worksheet pages, and goal-setting tools that you can use over and over again, not just month after month but year after year

    How to Manifest Someone: Step-By-Step Guide

    Step 1: Get Clear About What You Want

    Or, in this case, who you want.

    The key to a successful manifestation is to set specific intentions about what exactly it is that you want.

    One of the best comparisons I’ve heard for this is ordering a meal at a restaurant. How often have you gone out to eat and said to the waiter, “Just give me whatever, I don’t care”?

    Okay, maybe some of you have done this a time or two, but most people have specific preferences that will guide them toward what sounds best. Most of the time, when you’re at a restaurant, you’ll look over the menu, find something that looks appealing to you, then place your order with the waiter.

    But it’s not always that simple. Sometimes, you have to get even more specific. If you want them to hold the tomatoes or put your dressing on the side, you have to ask for it. This means you must release any worries about being seen as high-maintenance. You deserve to receive a meal that will please your tastebuds and live up to your expectations.

    This is the same for manifesting a partner. (Though chances are, your future partner will be a bit more complex than a salad.)

    Get clear about what exactly it is that you want in a partner. One of the best ways to do this is to make a simple list of all their qualities. List the attributes that are most important to you. Think about what your non-negotiables are.

    For instance, if you know you want to have kids one day, then it’s probably pretty important for you to find a partner who also wants kids. Or if you have a hard time staying in one place for too long and love to travel, you’ll most likely want to find someone who can keep up with your high-flying adventures.

    Also be sure to list how you want your partner to make you feel. Do you want to feel safe, respected, and supported by your partner? Write it down!

    You don’t have to list every single freckle (it’s good to remain a little flexible!), but by the end of this exercise, you want to have a clear vision of the person you could potentially spend the rest of your life with.

    Step 2: Release Limiting Beliefs That Don’t Serve You

    A limiting belief is a deep-seated belief that holds you back from realizing your true potential and living the life of your dreams. Limiting beliefs can come in many forms. Here are some examples of limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from manifesting someone special in your life:

    • I’m just too much of a loner to let someone in. It’ll never work.
    • Nobody will love me unless I lose twenty pounds.
    • If I put myself out there, I’ll just get my heart broken again.
    • I have to be in a successful career and make a really high income before I can be loved.

    How do you recognize your limiting beliefs? One practice is to sit and write down what exactly it is that you want to manifest. In this case, write down your image of a loving partner. As you reflect upon your desire, gently probe your thoughts.

    What’s stopping you from taking the next step to pursuing this desire? What fears do you possess? What beliefs are you clinging onto?

    As you answer these questions, choose not to judge or criticize yourself. Instead, have compassion for every step of your journey that’s led you here.

    I also like to make two columns on a piece of paper. For the heading of the first column, I write, “Limiting Beliefs I’m Releasing.” Under this column, I write down all the limiting beliefs that aren’t serving or supporting me.

    At the top of the next column, I write “New Reframed Belief.” Here, I take all the limiting beliefs I just wrote and turn them on their head. For instance, if the limiting belief is that you have to lose twenty pounds to be loved, in the next column, you might write, “I am worthy and deserving of perfect love just as I am.”

    And if you want to really dive deep and heal the limiting beliefs that are preventing you from getting what you really want in life, I definitely encourage you to check out the Releasing Limiting Beliefs workbook, part of my four-part self-love workbook series. Learn more here.

    Step 3: Script Your Dream Life

    Scripting is the act of writing your dreams and desires in story-like form. It’s similar to visualization, except instead of solely envisioning your dreams in your mind’s eye, you’re using pen and paper to write down what exactly it is that you want to manifest.

    This is one of my all-time favorite manifestation techniques, and I think it’s one of the most powerful, too. Not only does it help you get even more clear about your desires and intentions, but it also allows you to embrace your imagination and align with the positive emotions of having all your desires come true.

    The key to making scripting work is to treat it like you’re writing a story in that you only write in past and present tense, as if every single one of your dreams is happening or has already happened.

    Some people will say that it works best to write it in present tense, while others like to use past tense to describe something that already happened. I encourage you to try it both ways to see what feels best for you.

    Here’s an example of scripting your dream life in present tense:

    I wake up in a soft bed surrounded by plush pillows. I’m cuddled with the love of my life with our sweet cat burrowed between us. As the sun rises, so does my energy. I feel excited to experience the magic and wonder of this day!

    I step onto the hardwood floors and tiptoe out the door, carefully shutting the door behind me. As I walk through the house to the kitchen, I feel a sense of awe and gratitude for this beautiful home I get to call my own. It is exactly the home of my dreams: two-story with hardwood floors and giant windows that allow the sunshine to stream through the glass.

    I take a moment to stand in front of the sliding glass door by the dining room, and I take in the beautiful sights just outside our home.

    In this script, the writer is detailing a typical day in her dream life. As you can see, it’s all written in present tense. Rather than starting with, “In my dream life, I will wake up in a . . .” the writer starts as if this moment is in the here and now.

    You can also write it as though you’re describing a day as if it’s already happened. For instance, you can write about your first date as though it already happened, or you can reflect on your relationship from the perspective of your one-year or five-year anniversary.

    The key is to bring your desire into your reality right now, so that everything becomes tangible and real in your current experience.

    Scripting Prompts for Manifesting Someone

    Here are some prompts you can use for scripting. You’ll also find these in my free manifestation workbook below along with space to write your scripts!

    • Script your first meeting: You’ve just returned home from meeting your ideal partner ten minutes earlier. Write down all the details, including the emotions you felt in the moment and how you feel now.
    • Script your first vacation: You’re waking up on a beautiful morning during your first vacation as a couple. Describe all the details of where you are and how you feel in this moment.
    • Script your first anniversary: Today’s your first anniversary as a couple! Script your reflections on the past year and how it feels to be in such a positive, supportive, loving relationship.
    • Script your fifth anniversary: You’ve now been together for five years. Reflect on some of the best moments of the past five years and how you feel after five years with your partner.
    • Script a day in the life: What does a normal day look like with your partner? Describe all the details, including what you do and how you feel.

    Scripting Tips

    • Don’t just write; feel. As you write about the feelings of love, peace, freedom, and abundance, don’t allow the words to solely exist on the paper; allow them to exist right now in this present moment within you. If you write about a joyful moment, let a smile gently tug at your lips. Feel that joy right now deep within. Feel freedom now. Feel peaceful now. Feel abundant now. Vibrate at the frequency of all your dreams and desires. When you do this, you won’t have to chase the life of your dreams, because all of your desires will be attracted to you.
    • Express gratitude. Gratitude and love are the highest vibrations you can emit. When you express gratitude now as if your dreams have already come true, you’re not only vibrating at a higher frequency, but you’re showing the Universe that you have trust and faith that all your beautiful dreams are on their way.
    • Write what feels authentic to you. Do you prefer a small, cozy home over a giant mansion? Would you prefer a life of traveling over staying in one place? Are your dreams filled with quiet moments of peace and tranquility? Whatever you write, make sure it feels authentic and real to you. Just because someone else wants to live in a big mansion overlooking the city doesn’t mean that’s right for you. And if your dreams seem kind of out there and don’t make sense to others, that’s okay! The only thing that matters is that they feel right to you.

    Step 4: Use High-Vibe Affirmations

    Now, if you stopped at Step 3, you’d actually have a super solid foundation for manifesting someone into your life. But if you want to go a step further, you can’t beat incorporating positive affirmations into your daily life.

    Positive affirmations are present-tense statements that are designed to uplift and encourage while boosting self-belief and supporting your overall well-being.

    They’re also a powerful tool in manifestation.

    Why? Because the quickest way to manifest anything into your life is to feel the emotions of your desired manifestation right now.

    Positive affirmations are near-instant vibration raisers. They allow you to feel the positive emotions of your dreams and desires right now in your present-day experience.

    The first step here is to list the primary emotions you associate with manifesting someone in your life. How do you imagine your perfect partner will make you feel? Safe? Loved? Joyful? Create an affirmation that will align you with these feelings in your daily experience.

    And then, use these affirmations and feel all the positive emotions of the words in every cell of your being. The moment you say your affirmation, truly feel safe, loved, and joyful. When you do this, you’re no longer just dreaming of having a partner; you’re directly connecting to the experience of having a wonderful partner right now.

    And this, in essence, is what manifestation is all about.

    Affirmations to Manifest Someone

    Here’s a list of affirmations to get you started. You can find more affirmations to manifest your own love story here.

    • I am loved, loving, and lovable.
    • I am worthy of an epic love story.
    • I deserve to be loved exactly as I am.
    • I attract love by being my authentic self.
    • Love flows to me easily and effortlessly.
    • I am open to attracting even more love in my life.
    • I am able to freely accept love into my heart.
    • I am easy to love.
    • It is safe for me to open my heart to another.
    • My heart is open, loving, and pure.
    • I live in love.
    • Love is always flowing my way.

    Step 5: Connect to Your Heart Chakra

    This step can actually be done at any time in your journey, and for true heart chakra healing, it’s likely not going to be a one-and-done kind of thing. If your heart has been closed for some time now, then in order to receive love into your life, you must do the real healing that could be preventing you from manifesting true love.

    So what exactly is the heart chakra?

    Located in the center of your chest, your heart chakra is your body’s energy center for unconditional love, compassion, peace, kindness, connection, and empathy. When your heart chakra is open and balanced, you feel completely open to giving and receiving love. When your heart chakra is closed, this often manifests into feelings of depression, loneliness, fear of intimacy, and excessive self-isolation. (You can learn more about the heart chakra here.)

    Some factors that may cause a blocked heart chakra include loss of a loved one (grief), rejection, betrayal, and abandonment.

    Heart chakra healing is key to manifesting someone into your life. But it’s not just about manifesting someone. It’s also key to creating a successful and thriving relationship. Because if your heart chakra is blocked, even if someone special does enter your life, you may not be able to fully let them in until you’ve done the deep healing of releasing your blockages and fears.

    So how exactly do you connect to your heart chakra? One of the most powerful ways is through journaling, which allows you to connect to your deepest self and explore your inner world in a way that you may not normally do in your daily life. To get started, here are 30 Journal Prompts to Open and Heal the Heart Chakra.

    You can gently walk forward on this journey by practicing extending love to all that you come across during your day. During your daily interactions, imagine that your heart is open, and silently wish them love. You might even imagine your heart connecting with theirs.

    And don’t forget to extend this same love to yourself. Because you are worthy and deserving of the same love you give to others. Always.

    Step 6: Let Go

    To let go means that once you’ve set your intentions, scripted your dream life, and made it clear to the Universe what exactly you want, you release your worries about when and how it’s going to happen. Simply trust that it will happen, and begin to live as if.

    Live as if your dreams have already come true. Live as if everything you desire is already yours. Live as if you know that everything you want is on its way.

    Don’t worry about the timeline. Don’t try to force something that doesn’t feel right. Know that the Universe is doing the hard stuff, and instead of focusing on your external world, focus on your inner world.

    Create the most beautiful inner world you can imagine yourself, filled with joy, peace, and love.

    Everything is happening exactly as it’s meant to.

    Trust. Believe. Receive.

    Bonus Step: Listen to Your Intuition & Take Inspired Action

    If you know a little about the Law of Attraction, you know that manifestation is more than simply staring at a vision board, hoping your dreams will come true. It often also requires you to listen to your intuition and take inspired action when your inner knowing speaks to you.

    For instance, if your inner knowing tells you to join a dating site, listen to it! I’ve actually seen this one play out in real life. I have a friend who couldn’t get OkCupid out of her head. Even though she was resistant to meeting someone online, her mind kept going back to this specific dating site over and over again. Finally, she released her resistance and signed up.

    And you know what happened?

    She met the person she would eventually spend her life with in one week.

    I also know a guy who saw a girl walking across the street, and instantly, his inner knowing told him that she was the girl he was going to marry one day. He asked his friend if he knew who she was, and coincidentally, he did. So he decided to go talk to her. He asked her out, and they both knew on the first date that they’d met their match. Twenty years later, they’re still happily married.

    So what’s the point of these stories? In both, the person felt a deep inner knowing and acted on it. They took inspired action.

    So if your inner knowing tells you to do something, even if it doesn’t seem to make sense, listen!

    It could just be leading you to your very own beautiful love story.

    Now, I know a lot of people who tell me they have trouble knowing when their intuition is trying to tell them something, so I’ve put together a full guide on how to tap into your intuition. You can also learn more about what it means to take inspired action here.

    Healing the Solar Plexus Chakra

    Self-confidence. Self-esteem. Self-respect. Self-image. Self-worth.

    The solar plexus chakra is the energy center for all of the empowering self words. Want to build more confidence? Ready to boost your self-esteem? Looking to create a positive self-image and cultivate everlasting self-worth?

    Then it’s time to focus on the solar plexus chakra, your body’s energy center for confidence, joy, positivity, empowerment, and drive. Located a couple inches above the navel, just below your chest (you might call this the pit of your stomach), your solar plexus chakra is also your energy center of alignment with your purpose and core values.

    Now, the truth is, most of us don’t feel good 100% of the time. Even those of us who have generally high self-esteem experience moments of doubt and insecurity.

    And that’s okay.

    It’s normal not to feel positive every single moment of every day. The key is to recognize when you’re feeling low and to know that even though you may be having negative thoughts, it doesn’t make them true.

    On top of that, it’s important to have the tools you need to help build your confidence back up when it’s low.

    Positive affirmations are an important part of your self-care toolkit, and so is journaling. I’ve been journaling every morning for the past several years, and it’s made a huge impact on my confidence and self-belief. Journaling allows me to get in touch with my inner self and explore all my hidden depths.

    And, I’ve discovered, the more I’ve gotten to know the real me, the more I like myself.

    Below are 30 powerful solar plexus journal prompts to help you explore your own inner world. Specifically, these questions are geared toward discovering your confidence, finding your purpose, and celebrating all the things that make you awesome.

    Explore these journal prompts with an open mind and open heart, and write your answers with courage, honesty, and lots of self-love.

    And to go even deeper into balancing your solar plexus chakra, I’ve also put together 35 solar plexus chakra affirmations for confidence and motivation. You’ll also get these affirmations, along with the journal prompts below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    The journal prompts below are designed to help you open, activate, and heal your solar plexus chakra. Each prompt explores one of the central attributes of this energy center, including confidence, self-respect, self-worth, purpose, drive, positivity, joy, and more.

    There aren’t many rules about how to approach these prompts, as each person is different, and we all have different preferences and needs.

    If you want, you can read through the prompts and choose the ones that resonate most with you. If you do this, I would encourage you to still give some of the other prompts a try, as something might come to the surface for you that you weren’t expecting.

    You can also choose to start at the top and work your way to the bottom one prompt at a time.

    Whatever you decide to do, just make sure you have some quiet time to yourself to do this work. Whether it’s 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or longer, the most important thing is that you truly have time and space to explore your inner world without distractions.

    And my only other rule? (Well, more like a loving suggestion.)

    Be kind to yourself as you answer these questions.

    Be compassionate. Release self-criticism and self-judgment. The goal here isn’t to be perfect; the goal is to heal and fully explore your inner world. To do that, you must be wholeheartedly honest and kind to yourself throughout the process.

    So as you walk forward in this journey, make self-love your first priority, and let it lead you on your path.

    What is the Solar Plexus Chakra?

    Located above your navel, in the center of your torso (you might also refer to it as the pit of your stomach), the solar plexus chakra is your body’s energy center for confidence, positivity, motivation, and drive. I also like to think of it as the chakra that’s associated with all the self words: self-esteem, self-respect, self-image, and self-worth.

    When your solar plexus chakra is balanced and aligned, your overall self-image is high. You feel confident in the steps you’re taking, and you wholeheartedly believe in yourself and your ability to succeed.

    A balanced solar plexus chakra is also associated with being a good team player. You’re collaborative, confident in your decision making, and have a high sense of integrity.

    Blockages and imbalances to the solar plexus chakra are associated with low self-esteem, lack of ambition, and a sense of worthlessness. If the solar plexus chakra is overactive, you may also experience arrogance, hunger for power, and a superiority complex.

    Positive affirmations are a powerful way to restore balance to any of your body’s energy centers. Below, you’ll find 35 powerful solar plexus chakra affirmations to activate, balance, and heal your energy center for confidence, positivity, and self-esteem.

    And to go even deeper into balancing your solar plexus chakra, I’ve also put together 30 journal prompts to open and heal your solar plexus chakra. You’ll also get these journal prompts, along with the affirmations below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.

    Sacral Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Sacral Chakra

    In this post, discover 14 powerful sacral chakra healing practices that will help you to open and balance your sacral chakra, your body’s energy center for creativity, passion, prosperity, joy, and sensuality.

    Sacral Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Sacral Chakra

    What is the Sacral Chakra?

    Located in your lower abdomen, your sacral chakra is your energy center for creativity, joy, prosperity, passion, openness, and playfulness. An open and balanced sacral chakra means you embrace your creativity, have high self-esteem, and are able to relax, have fun, and play. Pleasure is a word often associated with the sacral chakra, as having an open sacral chakra means you find delight in all of life’s pleasures.

    This is also the energy center for sensuality and sexuality. When energy is flowing freely through this chakra, you’re more likely to have a strong, positive relationship with your body. You honor your desires and have healthy intimate relationships with others.

    The sacral chakra is about more than creativity and high self-esteem, though. When this energy center is balanced, you feel more open, adaptable, compassionate, and forgiving. You’re honest with yourself and others, and you’re able to let go of grudges that don’t serve your well-being.

    Additionally, because you have a strong and healthy relationship with yourself, you know that holding onto negative emotions such as anger, resentment, and bitterness only harms you in the long run, so you’re able to release these feelings (in a healthy way) in order to take care of your mind, body, and spirit.

    In this post, we’ll look deeper into the sacral chakra and discuss 14 powerful practices for opening, balancing, and healing your second energy center.

    First, here are some of the key attributes of the sacral chakra:

    • Sanskrit Name: Svadhishthana (Sva = “self”; shthana = “place”)
    • Location: Lower abdomen (below your navel)
    • Color: Orange
    • Body Parts: Womb, Bladder, Lower Back, Reproductive Organs
    • Symbol: Six-petaled lotus with a moon crescent in the center
    • Element: Water
    • Mantra: VAM
    • Affirmation: I feel
    • Balanced Attributes: Creative, Joyful, Playful, Prosperous, Stable, Sexual, Sensual, Passionate, Open, Energetic, Honest, Forgiving
    • Imbalanced Attributes: Lack of Creativity, Unstable, Insecure, Anxious, Scattered, Lazy, Fearful, Disconnected, Depressed, Unmotivated, Negative, Lack of Sensuality
    • Fundamental Need: Emotional flow, desire, sexuality

    Sacral Chakra Healing

    If you live in a culture that prioritizes work over play, sacral chakra healing can be an especially important and profound self-care practice. It’s also important if you grew up with a negative relationship your own body, or if you’re not fully comfortable with your sensuality and sexuality.

    So how does sacral chakra healing really work? First, it’s important to understand your chakra system and the energy within your body.

    While you often only hear about the seven main chakras, there are actually 114 chakras throughout your body. (And some believe there to be more.) These chakras are connected by energy channels called nadis. Just like cars travel on roads to get from one place to another, energy travels through these energy channels to get to each of your chakras.

    In a perfect system, your energy is flowing freely all the time. Unfortunately, energy often becomes stuck inside this system, causing your chakras to become either overactive or underactive. Ignoring these blockages won’t make them go away. To get energy moving again, you need to engage in healing practices to help stimulate your life force (prana).

    The type of healing you need will depend on the level of blockage you’re experiencing.

    For instance, if you’re experiencing some writer’s block or feeling excess negativity within, but this isn’t normal for you, meditation and gentle movement through yoga may help to get the energy flowing again.

    But if your blockage goes deeper, you may need to engage in profound inner child healing practices in order to get to the source of the blockage so that you can work with it, release it, and stimulate the free flow of energy within.

    Below, you’ll find 14 powerful healing practices to open, balance, and activate your sacral chakra. You can use any of these practices as part of your daily routine, or you can choose a few when you feel like your sacral chakra is blocked and imbalanced. I encourage you to try a few of the healing practices that resonate with you most and, whenever possible, practice them consistently in your daily life.

    Get Creative

    How often do you make space in your life for creativity?

    Actually, let me rephrase that.

    How often do you make space in your life for creativity that has absolutely no end goal? It’s not meant to be productive. It’s not meant to be good. And it’s definitely not meant to be perfect. It’s just pure, unrestricted, joyful creativity.

    This is the type of creativity you feel when you’re in a total flow state. And there’s a good chance it’s not the type of creative outlet you’re best at.

    For instance, I’m a writer. I’m writing blog posts and articles every single day, and I also often work on fiction stories in my spare time. But even then, I have a difficult time letting go of my inner perfectionist. So when I’m working with my sacral chakra, I never turn to writing to stimulate my creativity.

    Rather, I often do something that I’m not very objectively good at, like painting. I embrace the fun and play of it all, and I let go and allow my inner creative being to guide me wherever she wants to go.

    Embracing your creative flow is one of the most beneficial practices you can do when working with your sacral chakra. Do something you feel good about that isn’t related to your job and that you don’t feel the need to be perfect when doing. Let it be both messy and beautiful!

    Spend Time In Water

    The sacral chakra’s associated element is water, and there are several powerful ways you can use water to connect with this energy center. My personal favorite practice is to take a luxurious bubble bath. When your sacral chakra is open and balanced, that means you have a positive relationship with your body and embrace your own divine sensuality. A warm bubble bath is the perfect way to honor your body.

    I also love to pair this practice with aromatherapy and crystal healing, which you’ll read more about below. Turn off the lights, place your sacral chakra healing crystals around the tub, and use cinnamon-scented candles or essential oils to set the mood for profound sacral chakra healing.

    (Not a bath person? Get some ideas for shower meditations here.)

    Of course, you can also find water all over nature, which is one of our greatest teachers and healers of all. Oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams all offer opportunities to connect with your sacral chakra. If you’re not too keen on getting in the water, that’s okay! Even sitting near the water while meditating, journaling, or simply sitting in silence can offer meaningful healing.

    Mirror Work

    Mirror work can be a beneficial practice for your entire chakra system as a whole, but I especially like it for sacral chakra healing because it can help build self-esteem and connect you to your body, which are all important aspects of the sacral chakra.

    So what is mirror work exactly? First, stand in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes. If possible, try to use a mirror that shows at least half your body. Bring a gentle smile to your lips. As you’re looking yourself in the eyes, start complimenting yourself. Affirm all the things you love about yourself, both inside and out. If you’re complimenting your arms, you can gently brush your fingertips against your arms in loving reverence. The same goes for your face, chest, legs, and all the rest of your divine being.

    And if you’re feeling super confident, you can even start dancing in front of the mirror. Your dancing can be fun and joyful or sultry and sensual; do what feels most comfortable to you! When you’re about done, look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself I love you. Repeat this practice as often as you need.

    Uplifting Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are a powerful way to lift your vibrations and align yourself with the energy you want to attract. For sacral chakra healing, focus on words that affirm your joy, creativity, passion, prosperity, openness, sensuality, and sexuality. Use these affirmations throughout your day.

    Below, you can find some sacral chakra affirmations to get you started. And you can click here for more sacral chakra affirmations.

    • I am open to the flow of creativity.
    • I am creative, passionate, and inspired. 
    • I feel joyful, energetic, and alive.
    • I am pure, positive energy.
    • My emotions flow freely in a balanced and healthy way. 
    • I allow the flow of positive energy to effortlessly move through me.
    • I live a creative, vibrant, passionate life.
    • I am vibrating pure joy, abundance, and prosperity.
    • Endless prosperity flows to and through me.
    • I am cultivating a beautiful life free of stress, worries, or fear.
    • I deserve absolute and unconditional bliss.
    • Unconditional joy is my birthright.

    Dance

    When your sacral chakra is blocked, you may feel withdrawn, tense, negative, and/or fearful. Dancing is one of the best ways to allow energy to flow freely throughout your body as you release any tension you may be holding onto within.

    Does the idea of dancing in front of people feel too overwhelming? That’s okay! This practice can often be most beneficial when you’re completely alone. If you’re at home or somewhere safe, play some music that resonates with you. It can be fast and upbeat or slow and sensual. You can set the mood by turning off lights, lighting candles, and/or changing into clothes that make you feel your best.

    Then, all you have to do is simply dance. Let loose, knowing you are completely safe. You can move in any way that feels right to you, but I do recommend connecting to your hips and lower abdomen in order to stimulate the energy in and around your sacral chakra.

    Meditation

    There are several ways you can use meditation to connect with your sacral chakra and guide you toward profound healing. One sacral chakra healing practice is to envision a bright orange glowing orb in your lower abdomen. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter. You can also recite some uplifting affirmations as you do this.

    You might also choose to envision living a day in the life as your truest, most authentic self with an open and balanced sacral chakra. How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? What do you do during the day? How do you speak to yourself and others? How do you incorporate play, fun, creativity, and joy into your day? How do you feel about your body? See all the details play out in your visualization, and feel the positive feelings of having an open sacral chakra.

    Write a Letter to Your Inner Child

    When you were a child, was using your imagination encouraged or discouraged? Did you engage in creative activities? Did you find creativity to be fun, or were you often preoccupied with being perfect? Did anyone ever say anything to discourage your creativity? Were you forced to grow up too fast?

    Take some time to sit and write a letter to your inner child. Affirm to this part of you that it’s safe to be creative. Encourage them to play more and to do things that bring them joy. Tell your inner child everything he or she needs to hear regarding play, fun, creativity, and joy. Build up their self-esteem. Was there something you always wished an adult would tell you? Tell it to yourself now.

    Journaling

    Journaling is one of my personal favorite practices for connecting with all of my chakras. If you can, I recommend making journaling a sacred time in which you’re not interrupted. If you have a quiet spot in your home, set some time aside to go there so you can connect with your inner self. You might even choose to surround yourself with crystals, essential oils, and other healing tools.

    To work with the sacral chakra, you can use journal prompts that are dedicated to connecting with the sacral chakra. To get started, you can find sacral chakra journal prompts here.

    Another powerful journaling practice is to write down sacral chakra affirmations, feeling the uplifting and positive emotions of the words as you write them.

    You can also make your journaling a time to get creative. Do you have an awesome idea for a movie, book, or TV show? Write down the story in your journal! (Just make not to edit yourself as you write. Have fun with it!)

    Visualization

    Visualization is a powerful tool in connecting to your inner self, healing your energy, and manifesting the life you desire. One reason it can be especially powerful for sacral chakra healing is that it allows you to engage with your imagination. If you haven’t used your imagination much since you were a child, this can be an especially profound healing method for you.

    There are several ways you can use visualization to connect with the sacral chakra. You can use any of the exercises outlined in the Meditation section above, or you can simply allow your imagination to take over your visualization and see where it leads.

    Since water is the element connected to the sacral chakra, you might also visualize yourself playing beneath a waterfall or floating in a river. Imagine that the water is rinsing away all negative and blocked energy and healing your life force within.

    Yoga

    Yoga is a profound healing practice for all of your chakras, but I especially love it for working with the sacral chakra because it allows you to connect with your body in a personal and powerful way. For sacral chakra healing, make sure to incorporate hip-opening poses into your practice. During your practice, breathe into your lower abdomen and focus on connecting with your sacral chakra. Let this practice be a sacred time in which you honor your body and treat it with respect and reverence.

    Here are some poses (asanas) you can incorporate into your practice when working with the sacral chakra:

    • Pigeon
    • Butterly
    • Cobra
    • Frog
    • Goddess squat

    Aromatherapy

    Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural plant extracts for therapeutic healing. This is one of my favorite underutilized healing practices, and it’s super easy to incorporate into your daily routine. For sacral chakra healing, use citrusy and/or spicy scents such as Orange, Tangerine, Cinnamon, Bergamot, Neroli, Cypress, Cardamom.

    For more information on how to use essential oils to heal the chakras, you can read my guide to essential heals for chakra healing here.

    Color Therapy

    In chakra healing, color therapy is the practice of surrounding yourself with the corresponding color of the chakra you want to open, activate, and/or heal. For sacral chakra healing, that means immersing yourself in all things orange.

    You can eat orange food, write in orange pen, wear orange clothing, and surround yourself in orange items. One of my favorite color therapy practices is to write empowering affirmations on colored post-it notes. So for sacral chakra healing, you might write uplifting sacral chakra affirmations on orange post-its.

    One of the most important things to remember here is to be intentional with this practice. Choose your items with the intention of healing your sacral chakra. You might find it helpful to play an affirmation game with your color therapy practice. For instance, if you decide to wear a piece of jewelry that has an orange gemstone, say an uplifting sacral chakra affirmation every time you touch or see this item.

    You can also decide that anytime you see an orange item while you’re out and about during the day, you’ll internally say a sacral chakra affirmation or express gratitude for an aspect of yourself related to the sacral chakra.

    Food

    Food can have a profound influence on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual self. While we often think of food as primarily affecting the body, it also affects the mind and spirit as well. For sacral chakra healing, add your favorite spices (such as cinnamon) to drinks and meals. Add orange produce such as carrots, mangoes, and oranges to your snacks or meals. You can also add sweet, antioxidant-filled honey to your tea, yogurt, or toast. (Or however you best like to savor it.)

    Crystals & Gemstones

    Each chakra is linked to powerful crystals that help you to connect to your energy centers and stimulate the effortless flow within. For sacral chakra healing, you can use crystals that stimulate creativity and passion, such as Orange Calcite, Jasper, Carnelian, Red Tiger’s Eye, Coral, and Fire Opal. Use these crystals in meditation, as jewelry, in crystal grids, in a sacred space, or keep them with you throughout the day.

    Healing the Sacral Chakra

    How often do you let yourself play?

    No work. No thinking about your to-do lists. No sacrificing your time for everyone else.

    Just fun, non-productive, glorious play.

    And even more: how often do you daydream? How do you express your creativity in your daily life? If you have a creative job, what fun and creative things do you do in your off-time? Do you ever seek out pleasure? What are you passionate about?

    Fun, creativity, and passion are all important components of the sacral chakra, your body’s second energy center. This is also your energy center for joy, prosperity, sensuality, sexuality, openness, and honesty.

    When your sacral chakra is open and energy is freely flowing in and out of this energy center, you’re more likely to feel inspired, passionate, and in touch with your fun and creative side. It also means you’re open and honest with others, and you also have a healthy relationship with your sensuality and sexuality.

    However, if your sacral chakra is either underactive or overactive, then you likely are experiencing deficiencies in areas of fun, passion, and creativity. When underactive, you may become withdrawn, tense, and insecure. And when it’s overactive, you’re more prone to becoming controlling, manipulative, and aggressive.

    So if you want to truly cultivate that feeling of pure joy and passion for life, it’s important to connect with your sacral chakra regularly.

    And know this: you deserve joy. You deserve prosperity. And you deserve to live an effortlessly beautiful, free, creative life that you feel truly passionate about.

    So ditch the “all work, no play” mentality and invite beautiful abundance into your life today.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    The 30 journal prompts below are designed to help you activate, open, and heal your sacral chakra. Each prompt focuses on an important aspect of the sacral chakra, including creativity, fun, play, sensuality, passion, sexuality, and your relationship with your body.

    And because you don’t want to be too rigid when it comes to the sacral chakra, know that there truly are no rules here. If you want to skip around and only answer the prompts that resonate with you, that’s totally fine. Or, if you’d like, you can start at the top and work your way to the bottom, one prompt at a time.

    You don’t have to answer all the prompts, though I think it can be powerful to do so as unexpected feelings and beliefs may arise from the questions posed in the various prompts.

    There’s definitely no time limit, so take as much or as little time as you need to answer these questions below. I do suggest that on days when you choose to work through the prompts, you set aside some time for yourself where you won’t be distracted or interrupted.

    And finally, make this sacred journaling time a judgment-free zone. In order to truly heal, you must work through the negative thoughts and beliefs you carry inside. And the only way you can truly embrace this healing journey is if you release judgment and embrace wholehearted authenticity, truth, and self-love.

    What is Your Sacral Chakra?

    Located in your lower abdomen (below your navel), your sacral chakra is your energy center for creativity, vitality, passion, joy, and sensuality. When your sacral chakra is balanced, you feel more open, adaptable, compassionate, and forgiving. You find delight in all of life’s pleasures and are able to relax, have fun, and let yourself play.

    This is also your energy center for sensuality, sexuality, and honoring your desires. A balanced sacral chakra means you’re more likely to have a healthy relationship with your body, and it also means you’re more likely to have healthy intimate relationships with others.

    Below, you’ll find 35 sacral chakra affirmations to help keep the flow of energy moving steadily and harmoniously in and out of this energy center. I recommend repeating these affirmations whenever you feel like you’re having a hard time connecting with one or more of the attributes associated with the sacral chakra. For instance, you might feel uninspired, unexcited about life, or maybe you don’t feel connected to your body.

    Find the affirmations that resonate most and commit to repeating them throughout the day. You might also find it helpful to write your affirmations on post-it notes and stick them somewhere they’re easily visible throughout the day.
