    What Is A Law Of Attraction Affirmation?

    A Law of Attraction affirmation is an empowering statement that affirms your ability to create anything you want in this life. Generally, a Law of Attraction affirmation will allow you to feel strong, powerful, and capable. Most Law of Attraction affirmations will remind you of your limitless capacity to create your future while also lifting your vibrations so that they align with your desired manifestations.

    Law of Attraction affirmations are powerful tools for manifesting your desires and stepping into the life that aligns with the dreams that have been placed in your heart. (And I promise, every dream has been placed in your heart for a reason. None of your desires are by accident. None.)

    Keep reading to learn about the different types of Law of Attraction affirmations and how to use affirmations to get the most out of them. Plus get 35 powerful Law of Attraction affirmations to manifest the life you truly dream of living.

    Types Of Law Of Attraction Affirmations

    For the Law of Attraction affirmations in this post, I’ve divided them into two categories: mindset affirmations and future pacing affirmations. Most of the affirmations you’ll find here are mindset affirmations, but incorporating future pacing affirmations into your daily life is definitely a worthwhile practice when it comes to lifting your vibrations and aligning you with the positive emotions of your dreams and desires.

    Mindset affirmations are the type of affirmations you use to uplift, empower, affirm your worthiness. These affirmations are the type that help you to cultivate an overall mindset of positivity.

    Here are a few examples of mindset affirmations:

    • I am worthy.
    • I am powerful.
    • I am enough.
    • I am strong in mind, body, and spirit.
    • I have the courage and confidence to achieve my dreams.
    • I am bold, brave, and brilliant.

    Future pacing affirmations are a little different than these typical mindset affirmations. When using these types of affirmations, you’re asserting that your desired manifestation has already come true.

    Here are a few examples of future pacing affirmations:

    • I am a successful writer with millions of fans who love to read my work.
    • I am in a beautiful, loving relationship with a partner who truly loves me for me.
    • I am a successful health coach making a positive difference in the lives of others. Clients are lining up to work with me!

    To amplify your manifestations, use a combination of mindset affirmations and future pacing affirmations that will uplift, empower, and allow you to truly feel as though all of your dreams and desires exist in this moment right now.

    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. While you can use this as a workbook, it’s more of a combination between a workbook and a yearly planner in which you get to control the order of the pages and how you want it to look. 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

    For a smaller version of these printables in workbook format, check out The Ultimate Manifestation Workbook.

    How To Use These Affirmations

    • Feel the emotions of the affirmation. Before anything else, an affirmation starts in the body. And beyond the actual words, affirmations are feelings and emotions. So if you say, I am worthy, you would truly feel a sense of undeniable worthiness in your being. And if you say, I possess unlimited power, then allow yourself to feel your limitless power flowing inside you.
    • Recite your affirmations throughout the day. This includes as you wake up in the morning, as you get ready for work, when you’re driving in the car, when you’re working out, and any other time you think it will benefit you. It may seem like a lot of work at first to consciously remind yourself to repeat these affirmations, but in time, you’ll no longer have to remind yourself because the positive words will be ingrained within you.
    • Practice mirror work. Stand in front of the mirror, look yourself in the eyes, and affirm your ability to create the life you desire. Tell yourself that you’re a powerful manifestor. Every time you look in the mirror, practice feeling all the positive emotions of having your desires in the present moment.
    • Leave notes for yourself. Notes can be in the form of post-its or even a notification that pops up on your phone. Fill these notes with powerful Law of Attraction affirmations. Every time you find one of your notes, feel all the positive emotions of the words inside your body.
    • And finally, recognize any limiting beliefs that may be stopping you from believing your affirmation. If there’s something stopping you from truly getting onboard with the words you’re wanting to affirm, don’t suppress these emotions. In this post, I talk more about limiting beliefs and how to release them.

    Future Pacing Affirmations

    What is the Art of Allowing? (A Complete Guide)

    In this post, discover the meaning of the Art of Allowing, plus get tips and journal prompts to help you surrender your worries and trust the Universe to guide you in the direction of your dreams and desires.

    the art of allowing
    Pin this for later! What is the Art of Allowing? (A Complete Guide)

    What is the Art of Allowing?

    The Art of Allowing is a key component in manifestation, which is the practice of visualizing your dreams and desires and vibrating at the frequency of your desires as if they’ve already come true. By becoming the embodiment of all your deepest desires, you attract more of this positive energy to you. (For instance, when you allow yourself to feel truly loved and cherished right now, you attract even more love into your life.)

    Generally, when you read or listen to someone speak about manifestation, it’s in a very active sense. The word “manifest” itself is an action word. It seems to require continually doing. You visualize your desires, set an intention, listen to your intuition, take inspired action, and continually cultivate more and more self-belief.

    But this only tells half the story. Manifestation isn’t only about doing; it’s also about being.

    Or, rather, allowing.

    According to Abraham Hicks, the Art of Allowing is “the conscious, gentle guiding of your thoughts in the general direction of the things that you desire.”

    To demonstrate this, imagine that you’re on a boat floating down a river. When you’re effortlessly floating downstream, you’re moving in the flow of all your dreams and desires. You might set aside your paddles, lay down, and let the Universe carry you, trusting that it’s taking you exactly where you want to go.

    It seems simple enough, but often, we do the exact opposite: we pick up the oars and start furiously trying to paddle upstream, convinced we know the right path. Not only does this take us in the opposite direction of our desires, but it causes us to exert a lot more energy (and most of it isn’t positive).

    The Art of Allowing is the practice of moving in flow with the Universe. It’s understanding that manifestation and the Law of Attraction isn’t 100% doing all the time. When you’re in alignment with the universal flow, you realize that your most important work of all is to feel good. You’re able to let go of control and surrender your path to the Universe. You focus on cultivating such a beautiful world within, your positive energy spreads outside of you.

    This is the Art of Allowing: to let the positive energy of all your dreams and desires become the center of your world. You leave the when, what, where, and how to the Universe and focus solely on cultivating positive thoughts and positive emotions that support your entire well-being.

    When you’re able to do this consistently each day, something kind of magical will begin to unfold in your outer world.

    Want to learn how to practice the Art of Allowing? Keep reading to learn how to know if you’re moving with the flow of the Universe and how to cultivate a mindset of allowing.

    How to Know If You’re Allowing

    Have you ever had a moment where you feel really good about the path you’re on but then inner worries start to kick in? Maybe you think it’s too good to be true. Or maybe you start to think that you’re not truly worthy of your dreams. Many of us unintentionally self-sabotage, believing that it’s just not possible for good things to happen to us.

    Something has to go wrong, right?

    I’ve experienced this many times in my own journey. I’ll experience success and feel really good about my success . . . and then soon after, my inner worries and insecurities start to kick in. Here are some common thoughts I’ve had when this happens:

    • Am I really worthy of all these good things?
    • Something bad has to happen, right?
    • I shouldn’t be so confident. As soon as I’m too confident, the Universe will knock me back down again.

    Have you ever had these types of thoughts? These negative thoughts are essentially our way of sabotaging ourselves from allowing more good things to flow in.

    It’s not just our own internal fears and limiting beliefs that stop us from allowing, though. When we let external situations influence our internal worlds, we also block ourselves from receiving what we desire.

    For instance, someone cuts you off in traffic. Or someone is rude to you at the grocery store. Maybe your boss was a jerk today or your partner’s bad mood has started to affect your own.

    When you let these external situations stir up negative feelings such as anger and frustration within, you’re only causing yourself to suffer in the long run. Your power lies in your ability to experience a range of negative external situations but to not let them influence your own emotional state.

    How to Practice the Art of Allowing

    In theory, it seems like practicing the Art of Allowing should be really easy. It simply requires you to allow in the things you really want in your life. And to do that, the first step is to feel all of the things you already want to feel in your life: joyful, peaceful, free, abundant, loved.

    All of it sounds simple enough.

    But the truth is, this practice isn’t always easy. Especially not at first. There’s a good chance that you have decades of lived experience that directly counteracts the Art of Allowing.

    So that’s why I want to start with this:

    If you notice yourself having trouble releasing your worries and simply allowing, don’t criticize yourself. Don’t judge or condemn yourself.

    One affirmation that I really like in these moments is, “I’m doing the best I can, and my best is enough.”

    To help make the Art of Allowing a little easier, here are some practices you can utilize in your daily life:

    Connect With Your Inner Self

    The first step to practicing the Art of Allowing is to understand your own relationship with allowing in your daily life. Do you easily allow things in, or do you always have to be in control of every situation? Do you trust the Universe to support you? How much time do you spend doing versus time spent being?

    Once you understand your own relationship with allowing, you’re better able to begin surrendering control. While you can internally reflect upon the questions I posed above, I always find journaling to be a profound practice when I need to connect with my deepest self. To start, find a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted. See if you can dedicate at least 15 to 20 minutes to this practice. As you journal, enact a “no self-criticism” rule. This means that even if uncomfortable truths arise, you don’t judge yourself for what you uncover.

    Rather, acknowledge your truths with love and compassion. Remember that this journey of personal growth isn’t easy, and give yourself some credit for the courage it takes to go on this journey. If you’re not happy with the way you’ve reacted to situations in the past, you can recognize this while also asserting that you’re ready to start telling a new story now.

    Below, you’ll find some journal prompts to help you uncover your own relationship with the Art of Allowing.

    Journal Prompts for the Art of Allowing

    • Do I trust my path or do I have a hard time releasing control? What makes this hard or easy for me?
    • What does it mean to me to surrender to a higher power? Is this easy or hard for me?
    • What are three ways I can practice surrendering in my daily life?
    • What evidence do I see in my life that the Universe is always looking out for me? What are some visible and non-visible signs of the Universe’s love?
    • How can I use this evidence to cultivate more trust and allowing?
    • When it comes to my big goals and dreams, how much time do I spend doing? How much do I practice simply allowing?
    • What does allowing mean to me?
    • How does allowing feel to me?
    • Describe a day as your highest, most authentic self walking through life simply allowing. What does this day look like?

    Use Positive Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are present-tense statements that are designed to uplift and encourage while boosting self-belief and supporting your overall well-being. Most positive affirmations support the practice of allowing, as they help to align you with the feel-good state of your dreams and desires. Depending on the situation, you can use specific affirmations that will help you in the moment. For instance, if you’re experiencing anxiety, you can repeat some gentle affirmations for anxiety.

    To learn more about how to use positive affirmations to get the most out of them, I encourage you to read my blog post, How to Use Affirmations (So They Actually Work).

    Below, I’ve linked to a few blog posts that will help to lift your vibrations and align you with the feelings of faith, joy, and inner peace:

    Meditate

    Whenever you feel misaligned, meditation is a powerful practice for gently guiding you back home to yourself. It allows you to let go, surrender control, and open yourself up to receive whatever is for your highest good. Meditation is truly the ultimate practice for being and allowing.

    Consider this quote from Abraham Hicks:

    • “By deliberately focusing upon good-feeling thoughts, you allow your physical cells to return to their natural balance. Breathing deeply is the key, softly hearing our words and allowing gentle alignment with the Energy of your Source.”

    And this one:

    • “There is no better way of stopping the momentum of something unwanted, and to allow the momentum of something wanted, than to meditate – other than getting a full night’s sleep.”

    If you’re new to meditating, Mindful has a great meditation guide for beginners. I also encourage you to check out the InsightTimer app, which is my personal go-to app for meditation.

    Align With Your Highest Self

    Your highest self is your essential self; it’s the eternal part of you that’s untouched by human experiences. This is the truest, most authentic part of you.

    When you think about the Art of Allowing, consider how your highest self would respond to various situations. How does your highest self approach your goals and dreams? Does your highest self trust your path? How does your highest self respond in the face of not knowing what’s going to happen next?

    It takes practice, but intentionally choosing to align with your highest self is one of the most powerful practices you can do to allow your deepest desires to manifest in your life. (And if you stray from your highest self? That’s okay. Don’t criticize or judge yourself. Respond with love and compassion, and remember that in every moment, you have the opportunity to realign with the true you.)

    Below are some questions to consider when thinking about your highest self. You can answer these questions internally or reflect upon them in your journal.

    • Who is my highest self? How do I align with my highest self in my daily life?
    • Is my highest self able to trust, allow, and just be?
    • How does my highest self approach each day? How does my highest self react to negative energy? How does my highest self walk through life?
    • Do I regularly consult with my highest self when responding to situations and making decisions? If not, how can I begin to include my highest self in my life’s journey?
    • When I’m aligned with my highest self, how do I feel?

    Abraham Hicks Quotes on the Art of Allowing

    • “The Art of Allowing, is wanting so much to feel good, that whether you are perusing the past or the present, or the future, you’re deliberately looking for the best-feeling thought that you can find.”
    • “The Art of Allowing says, ‘I’ve created it. It’s coming to me. It wants me. I want it. I will find a path to allow it. And the path of allowing what I want is the path of happiness, and joy, and feeling good.'”
    • “No matter what it is, if you really want it, and if you get out of the way of it, it will happen. It must be. It is Law. It can be no other way. It’s the way this Universe is established. If you want it and you relax, it will happen.”
    • “The Art of Allowing is caring so much about how I feel that I am unwilling to go to those uncomfortable places like: defending, justifying, rationalizing or trying to figure out why.”

    One Final Note

    One last aspect about the Art of Allowing that’s important to mention is that this practice also means allowing others to live their lives without trying to control them. You may think you know the best path for them, but you can’t force anything on another person. They must discover their own path, which may be drastically different from what you want for them.

    You can be a beacon of love and compassion. You can be a guiding light when they ask for advice. You can be a positive example of what it means to walk your own path in love and faith.

    But you can’t push them in a certain direction.

    The Art of Allowing means giving others the freedom to follow their own inner knowing, learn from their own experiences, and grow at their own pace.

    And truly, when you’re aligned with the flow of the Universe, you won’t want this anyway. Once you fully allow, there is no need to control. You’ll be able to let go and trust that the Universe is taking care of the highest good for yourself and others.

    Setting Goals

    Most of us have short-term and long-term goals for our lives. These goals might include positive career movement, financial success, living in the place you’ve always dreamed of, and/or having a healthy, long-term relationship.

    But how often do you take the time to write your goals down? It’s easy to lose sight of your goals in the midst of your daily life. When dealing with external demands, thinking about your long-term goals sometimes seems less urgent.

    But it shouldn’t be.

    Your goals matter. Every dream, desire, passion, and objective that’s been placed inside you has been put there for a reason. And you owe it to yourself to follow it as far as it will take you.

    Below, you’ll find 33 journal prompts for goal setting and future planning. I’ve also included some tips on how to use these journal prompts as well as resources throughout the article to help you with achieving your goals. Let these journal prompts and resources guide you in creating a life that fulfills your heart and supports your mind, body, and spirit.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    • To start, find a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted. Allow yourself to truly connect with your inner self. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning, afternoon, or evening; what matters is that you’re able to devote this time to you. See if you can dedicate at least ten to twenty minutes solely to journaling.
    • You can answer just one question at a time or several in a single journaling session. It will just depend on the type of question and what kinds of answers it reveals within. (Just don’t rush it!)
    • If you find yourself straying from the question a little, that’s okay. You might be on the verge of discovering something within yourself you hadn’t realized before.
    • Finally, enact a “no self-criticism” rule while you’re journaling. Let’s say that as you write, you realize that you haven’t been making any positive movement toward your goals in the past six months. Don’t judge yourself here. Instead, choose to show yourself compassion, and acknowledge the fact that you’re making progress now.

    How to Manifest Something

    To manifest something means to visualize your dreams and desires and to vibrate at the frequency of your desires as if they’ve already come true.

    So if you dream of finding a romantic partner, and you imagine that a romantic partner will make you feel loved, cherished, and adored, you wouldn’t wait until a romantic partner enters your life to feel those positive emotions; you’d choose to feel loved, cherished, and adored right now.

    Like attracts like, so when you choose to feel these positive emotions throughout your day, you’ll attract more of this to you.

    So if you want to attract abundance, become the embodiment of abundance right now.

    This is, in essence, what manifestation and the Law of Attraction is:

    What you think, you become.

    What you put out, you get back.

    So at its very core, the answer to how to manifest something is to become the energy of what you want to manifest.

    But this isn’t always easy. That’s why it helps to use tried and proven manifestation methods to aid you in your manifestations.

While you can use this as a workbook, it’s more of a combination between a workbook and a yearly planner in which you get to control the order of the pages and how you want it to look. 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

    For a smaller version of these printables in workbook format, check out The Ultimate Manifestation Workbook.

    1. Set an Intention

    The very first step to manifesting your dreams is to decide what exactly it is that you want to manifest. In manifestation terms, you’ll often hear this referred to as setting an intention.

    An intention is the desired outcome you wish to materialize in your physical reality. There aren’t a lot of rules about intentions, but I will say this: every single time one of my intentions has come true, it’s when my intention came from a sincere place deep in my heart. An intention shouldn’t be based off of what someone else wants for you. It should align with your authentic truths and desires.

    At its heart, an intention should feel really good to you.

    You may not think of this as a manifestation method, but I wanted to give it its own category because of its importance. Manifestation may seem really hard, but half the battle is setting a sincere intention that feels right to you. Because once you set an intention that feels really good, you’re in alignment with the Universe. That means the Universe will do everything possible to support you.

    And when you’re in the flow with the Universe, manifestation is actually really, really easy. And fun!

    So how do you release your intention to the Universe? My favorite method is to visualize what my life would look like if that intention came true. Then, I’ll speak my intention aloud. And finally, I visualize my intention in the form of a paper lantern floating up into the sky until I no longer see it. Once it’s out of my sight, I know it’s in good hands with the Universe.

    Once you set an intention, listen for those gentle nudges guiding you in the right direction. Trust the loving guidance of the Universe.

    Looking to manifest a specific person? Or do you want to manifest abundance? If you’re looking to manifest something specific, these posts go into further depth on how to manifest love and abundance:

    2. Release Limiting Beliefs

    A limiting belief is a deep-seated belief that holds you back from realizing your true potential and living the life that you know you’re truly meant to live. For instance, if you want to be an actor, you might believe you’re not talented enough to truly make it. Or you might decide there’s too much competition, so why bother?

    Both of these thoughts are examples of limiting beliefs stopping you from achieving your dreams.

    One of the first steps to manifesting your dreams is to recognize what limiting beliefs you hold within. By understanding your limiting beliefs, you can do the inner work to release them. This opens up space for you to create new, positive beliefs that support your dreams.

    To recognize a limiting belief, think about your most deeply held dreams. Ask yourself, what’s stopping you from pursuing these dreams? What fears do you possess? What beliefs do you have about your ability to achieve these dreams?

    Once you recognize your limiting beliefs, you have the power to release these limiting beliefs and even turn them into new, empowering beliefs. For a list of powerful practices that will help you release limiting beliefs, check out the blog post below. I also recommend checking out Mark Manson’s in-depth post on limiting beliefs: How to Overcome Your Limiting Beliefs.

    3. Visualize Your Dream Life

    In your dream life, where do you live? What do you do for a living? Who do you spend your time with? How do you feel when you wake up in the morning and when you close your eyes at night?

    Visualization is the practice of imagining all the details of your desired manifestation playing out in your mind’s eye. A visualization exercise is powerful because it not only allows you to set an intention for what you want to manifest, but it also lifts your vibrations.

    The key to a successful visualization is to not only see the details play out in your mind but to feel all the high-vibe emotions of having your desires right now. When you do this, you directly connect yourself to the experience of having the thing(s) you desire, becoming a magnet for your dreams to manifest in your reality.

    To get started with visualization, you’ll want to find a safe and comfortable spot where you won’t be interrupted. You might decide to play some soft music in the background.

    Envision a day in your dream life. Where do you wake up? Who are you with? What do you do during the day? As you walk through this day, allow yourself to feel all the positive emotions of having everything you desire.

    When you finish your visualization, release it to the Universe. Then, carry the positive feelings of your visualization with you throughout your day.

    You might also visualize specific scenarios, like getting the phone call that changes your life for the better, or going on your dream vacation. No matter what you do, have fun with it and don’t hold back. This is your visualization. The only thing that matters is that it feels right to you.

    4. Raise Your Vibration

    This is another phrase you hear a lot in the manifestation space, and I’m going to be honest here: it’s not my favorite.

    Don’t get me wrong; I love the idea behind this phrase, and that’s why I use it here. But to be clear, you aren’t simply raising your vibration; you are positive vibrations. Positive vibrations are your very foundation.

    So rather than raising your vibration, you’re releasing everything that weighs you down.

    Now, let’s go back to the definition of manifestation. To manifest something meas to visualize your dreams and desires and to vibrate at the frequency of your desires as if they’ve already come true.

    So when you “raise your vibration,” what you’re truly doing is matching your vibrations to your desire.

    That means if you want to manifest love, feel loved now. If you want to manifest success, feel successful now. Feel all the positive emotions of having your dreams and desires as if you already have them right now.

    And if you’re ever feeling a little lost, remember that love and gratitude are the highest vibrations you can offer. In any moment, you can step back and think about something you’re grateful for or something you truly love. Let these emotions shine through.

    For some ideas on how to quickly raise your vibration, check out the blog post below. And for more uplifting practices to help you raise your vibration every single day, be sure to check out my Dreams, Goals & Manifestation Printables. These printables include tons of high-vibe activities that will help you to align with the positive feelings of love, freedom, abundance, and more!

    5. Create a Vision Board

    A vision board is a collection of words and/or images that represent your highest self living your ideal life. Common components of a vision board might include your career, relationships, home, car, health, wealth, spirituality, lifestyle, hobbies, self-care activities, and anything that represents the life of your dreams.

    A vision board is a powerful tool for connecting you to your dream life. It also helps you with intention setting, as it allows you to get clear about what exactly you want to manifest.

    A vision board isn’t purely about setting goals, though; it’s about allowing yourself to experience all of the positive feelings of having all of your hopes and dreams right now. Is your board filled with images of travel, adventure, and freedom? Or is your deepest desire to have stability, a beautiful home, and a loving relationship?

    Whenever you look at your board, allow yourself to feel all of the positive emotions of having your dreams and desires right now.

    Allow yourself to feel freedom. Feel love. Feel passion. Feel abundance. Feel all of these positive emotions now, knowing in your heart that you create your abundance from within.

    • Tip: In addition to creating a physical vision board, you can also create one on your phone! There are apps that allow you to do this, but I like to create an album in my photos titled, “My Life.” Then, anytime I find an image online that represents my dream life, I save it to this album. This way, I can keep my vision board with me no matter where I go.

    Here are some vision board affirmations to help you get started. And here you can find 30 inspirational vision board quotes with images that you can save and print.

    6. Manifest Through Journaling

    Journaling is one of my personal favorite manifestation methods for several reasons:

    • There are several different practices you can use to manifest in a journal, so it never gets dull or repetitive.
    • Journaling gives me time to connect with my inner self, which often leads to unexpected discoveries.
    • 10 times out of 10, I always feel better after journaling. Even if all I did was vent in my journal, at least I was able to release that energy out of my body, onto the paper.

    Below, I’m going to talk about two of the most popular methods for manifesting in a journal. For a more in-depth look at manifestation and journaling, I encourage you to check out my post, How to Manifest in a Journal (A Complete Guide).

    Scripting

    Scripting is the act of writing your dreams and desires in a story-like form. However, you’re not writing your dreams as if they’re in the far-off future. You write them as though you’re living them right now.

    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.

    For instance, you might write about a day in your dream life as if it’s happening today. Or you might write about meeting the love of your life as though you just met them yesterday.

    Do’t be afraid to get descriptive! And even more, as you write, feel all the positive emotions of your words in your very being. Feel it as if it’s happening to you now.

    55×5 Manifestation Method

    The 55×5 (also written as 5×55 or 555) Manifestation Method is fairly straightforward: it simply requires you to choose an affirmation, then write down that affirmation 55 times in a row for 5 days straight.

    The affirmation you choose will directly relate to the desire you want to manifest.

    For example, let’s say you want to manifest money. Your affirmation might be, “I am so grateful I received $1,000 this week!”

    So on Day 1, you’ll write “I am so grateful I received $1,000 this week!” 55 times in a row.

    Then, on Day 2, you’d again write, “I am so grateful I received $1,000 this week!” 55 times in a row.

    Days 3, 4, and 5, same thing.

    Like scripting, you want to truly feel like you have this thing now. If you did manifest $1,000, how would you feel? Grateful? Joyful? Radiant? Allow yourself to feel those emotions now!

    For more ideas and tips on the 55×5 manifestation method, you can check out my blog post here.

    7. Practice Gratitude

    Gratitude ties in with abundance, as when you choose to view your life from a perspective of gratitude, you’re able to see all that you have rather that focusing on what you don’t have.

    When you express gratitude, you’re essentially telling the Universe, more of this please.

    More joy. More love. More peace, freedom, and abundance.

    Connect yourself to the life of your dreams by expressing sincere gratitude and appreciation for the abundance that already exists within.

    How do you do this? Here are a few ideas:

    • When you wake up, think of three things you’re grateful for. You might also choose to write these things down in a gratitude journal.
    • Anytime you feel misaligned, take a step back. Look around your immediate environment. Focus on one thing in your surroundings to be grateful for. If you can’t find something outside of you, focus on something within.
    • Stuck at a red light? Instead of expressing frustration, think of one to three things you’re thankful for in your life.
    • Before you go to bed at night, think of three things that happened during the day that you truly appreciate.

    8. Give to Receive

    The more good you put out in the world, the more good you receive in return.

    Do you want to manifest love? Give love to others. (And yourself.)

    Do you want financial prosperity? Donate and give money when you feel called to.

    Do you want unconditional happiness? Give your smile freely to others. Make someone’s day. Be a light in someone else’s world.

    One way to intentionally practice this is to write a Giving List. Every morning, write down something you want to give that day. Remember, it doesn’t have to be a really big thing. Here are a few examples of something you might give:

    • A compliment to a friend
    • A smile to a stranger
    • An extra $1 on your tip
    • A kind gesture, like letting another car in or opening the door for someone.

    Time is also a gift, so you might give the gift of your time to someone who’s feeling lonely.

    I always like to note that you should only give when it feels good to you. Don’t force or pressure yourself to give because you think you have to, especially if deep down, you feel any resentment towards giving. When you do this, you may emit negative vibrations, so you’re not actually helping yourself to manifest what you want. Release the pressure on yourself, let go, and allow the perfect moment to unfold instead of forcing yourself into it.

    9. Surrender & Allow

    There are several ways I could phrase this:

    Surrender.

    Trust.

    Let go.

    Allow.

    There are two equal parts of manifestation: doing and being. This is actually directly tied to the Law of Gender, one of the 12 spiritual laws of the Universe. The Law of Gender states there are two types of energy: masculine and feminine. In order to live a fulfilling, joyful, purpose-driven life, we must achieve a balance between these two energies.

    Masculine energy is tied to hustling, achieving, and doing. Feminine energy is tied to surrendering, allowing, and just being.

    While many of the practices on this list are tied to your masculine energy, your feminine energy is just as important when it comes to manifesting. What we often forget when it comes to manifestation is that you’re actually co-creating with the Universe. This means trusting that the Universe has your back. It also means sometimes, you’re in the driver’s seat, and other times, you’re letting the Universe take the wheel.

    So how exactly do you practice surrender and trust? Here are a few tips:

    • Release the “how.” This is 100% the Universe’s job. You might think you know the best path to your dreams. You might also think there’s just no possible way your dream can come true. But I promise, the Universe will figure out the how, and it’s often in unexpected and surprising ways. Your job is to simply allow the Universe to work its magic. When it’s time for you to act, it’ll deliver a sign or a gentle nudge in the right direction to let you know.
    • Listen to your own inner rhythm. Do you feel like you’re forcing something to happen? How does it feel? At its foundation, manifestation should feel really good. If you feel like you’re trying to force your dreams to come true, it may be time to take a step back. Let go and allow the Universe to take the wheel for a while.

    As you move forward, keep this in mind:

    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 an inner world so peaceful, patient, and calm, it spills into your outer world and creates something beautiful.

    10. Live As If

    Living as if is something you can do while you’re completing the practices above as well as after you’ve completed the above manifestation methods.

    And not only is it one of the most powerful practices on this list, but it’s also something that makes you feel really good.

    Think about all of your most beautiful dreams and desires. Now, imagine how you’ll feel the day all of your dreams come true. How will you feel? Joyful? Peaceful? Free? Connect with those emotions within.

    Then bring those emotions back to the present moment, and live your daily life as if all of your dreams and desires have already come true.

    Live as if you’ve already connected with the love of your life. Live as if you’ve already received financial prosperity. Live as if you have the dream car, the dream house, the dream wardrobe. All of it. Live as if you’re living the life of your dreams, and slowly, you’ll discover the life of your dreams is already yours.

    What is Social Anxiety?

    My social anxiety started in elementary school, before I knew what anxiety was or why I felt these uncomfortable feelings within. All I knew was that I felt different from other kids.

    While other kids cheered for lunch and recess, those were my two least favorite parts of the school day.

    Why?

    Because I couldn’t hide behind schoolwork or a book. I had to actually be present with the other kids; I had to be seen.

    And this absolutely terrified me.

    Have you ever experienced these kinds of feelings?

    Social anxiety is an extreme fear of social situations. You might experience a fear of being judged by others or worry that you’ll be humiliated. You may be afraid of saying the wrong thing, or that you won’t know what to say at all. This fear can often be all-consuming, leading you to feel anxious for days leading up to a social event.

    One of your greatest tools when you experience social anxiety is self-compassion.

    Self-compassion allows you to see your anxiety in a loving light. Instead of criticizing yourself for having these thoughts and feelings, you’re able to send love to your anxiety. Self-compassion is understanding that nothing about you is wrong; nothing about you is a mistake.

    Even when you experience fear and anxiety, you are still worthy, whole, and complete.

    Below are 50 calming affirmations for social anxiety. Use these affirmations before and during a social event to help you remain grounded, centered, stable, and secure. These affirmations are meant to give you courage and strength as you walk into a social situation, knowing you are courageous, strong, and more than enough.

    At the bottom of this post, I’ve linked to a few resources for anyone experiencing chronic, overwhelming social anxiety.

    And here are a few more posts filled with tools to help you with anxiety:

    How to Release Limiting Beliefs (and Create New Beliefs)

    In this post, learn how to release limiting beliefs using several powerful practices. These practices will not only help you release limiting beliefs, but they’ll allow you to make space to create new, empowering beliefs that will serve you as you step into a new chapter, filled with limitless possibilities.

    how to release limiting beliefs
    Pin this for later! How to Release Limiting Beliefs (and Create New Beliefs)

    What is a Limiting Belief?

    A limiting belief is a deep-seated belief that holds you back from realizing your true potential and living the life that you know you’re truly meant to live.

    Limiting beliefs can come in many forms. Here are a few examples:

    • There are already thousands of wellness coaches out there. I don’t have anything special to offer to stand out from the crowd. I’ll never be able to compete.
    • I’ll get back on the dating scene someday, but nobody’s going to love me the way I am now. First, I need to lose twenty pounds. My physical self has to be in peak shape to be loved.
    • Only really lucky people get to have that kind of success. I’ll never make it.

    Do any of these sound familiar? Or have you experienced similar types of thoughts that have held you back from taking the next step personally or professionally?

    Most of the time, you’ll find that your limiting beliefs are rooted in fear: fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, fear of not having what it takes, fear of being seen for your true self, fear of failure, and even fear of success.

    But know this: you are not your fears.

    And you have the power to rise above your limiting beliefs and fears. What held you back yesterday doesn’t have to continue to hold you back today.

    Below, you’ll discover how to release limiting beliefs using several powerful practices. You can use one or two of these practices, or you can try them all and see how they feel for you.

    Even more, these practices don’t just help you release limiting beliefs; they allow you to create new, empowering beliefs that will guide you in your journey forward, into a life filled with limitless possibilities.

    how to release limiting beliefs

    How to Release Limiting Beliefs

    Make a Reframed Beliefs List

    One of my favorite ways to release limiting beliefs is to make a list of new, reframed beliefs.

    To do this, you can use a sheet of paper or pull up a blank document on your computer. Make a table with two columns.

    Title the first column, Old Limiting Beliefs. Title the second column, New Reframed Beliefs. You can also use the titles, Limiting Beliefs I’m Releasing and Empowering Beliefs I’m Embracing.

    Under the Limiting Beliefs column, write down all of the limiting beliefs that have held you back. Maybe there’s just one or two really big ones, or there may be several you want to write down.

    Now, what’s the opposite of those limiting beliefs you just wrote down?

    In the next column, turn every limiting belief into a new, positive, empowering belief. Essentially, you’re writing a powerful affirmation here. If your belief is that you’re not good enough, affirm that you are good enough. Write what feels good to you!

    Repeat these new reframed beliefs as often as you need to. You might decide to look at them every morning and recite your empowering beliefs aloud.

    Here’s an example of how your list might look:

    Old Limiting BeliefsNew Reframed Beliefs
    I’m not talented enough to make it. Why even bother?I have what it takes to succeed and thrive. I’m more than enough!
    Nobody will want to date someone like me. I shouldn’t even try.I have so many amazing qualities to offer. There’s someone out there looking for exactly someone like me.

    Burn Your Limiting Beliefs List

    One practice that might be cathartic for you is to take the limiting beliefs list you wrote above and burn it. Let this be a representation of you letting go of your limiting beliefs and making space for something new in your life.

    If you do this, I do recommend still finding a way to turn those limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs. After you burn your limiting beliefs, you can make a list of positive affirmations that represent your new beliefs. Instead of focusing on the negative energy of your old beliefs, focus on the fresh energy of your new beliefs. Let this new energy carry you forward into your next chapter.

    Visualize Releasing Your Limiting Beliefs

    Another one of my favorite practices for releasing limiting beliefs is to envision myself throwing my limiting beliefs off a cliff and watching them disappear.

    To do this, find a quiet, safe spot where you won’t be interrupted. Close your eyes. Imagine you’re standing at the edge of a cliff. Below is a deep chasm; you can’t see the bottom. Now, invite your limiting beliefs to come forward. See them with non-judgmental awareness. This means not letting the negative energy associated with these limiting beliefs to cause negative feelings within.

    You might even send a little love to your limiting beliefs and acknowledge the ways in which they tried to serve you. For instance, you might say, “I recognize that you were trying to protect me from getting my heart broken, but I no longer need your service anymore.”

    Then, release these old beliefs into the chasm below. Watch them until they disappear. Feel yourself getting lighter without the weight of these fears pressing down on you.

    Now you have space to create new, positive beliefs. Create your new beliefs in love, kindness, and courage, knowing you have the strength to step into the life you were always meant to live.

    Journal Your Feelings

    Instead of making a list, it might help you to explore your limiting beliefs in journaling.

    Journaling allows you the time and space to explore the limiting beliefs that have been holding you back. It also allows you to gently probe these beliefs and ask, “Is it true?”

    For instance, you might discover that the belief that you’re not talented enough has been holding you back from pursuing your dreams. But once you start writing about it, you realize that you’ve just been using this fear to stay small. Even more, you realize that it absolutely is not true. You are talented enough. And you have what it takes to succeed.

    Explore your limiting beliefs with love and compassion through journaling. And in your writing, you can release these beliefs and create new beliefs that support your mind, body, and spirit.

    Here’s a few questions to ask yourself as you journal:

    • What’s stopping me from taking the next step to pursuing my dreams?
    • What fears do I possess?
    • What beliefs am I clinging onto?
    • If these limiting beliefs didn’t exist, what would I do?
    • Are these limiting beliefs actually true?
    • What new, empowering beliefs am I creating today?

    Express Gratitude for Your Limiting Beliefs

    One way to overcome your limiting beliefs is to make them a little less intimidating. And you do this by recognizing that limiting beliefs aren’t 100% bad, scary things.

    You possess these limiting beliefs for a reason. Most likely, they were protecting you from something. Take some time to explore how these limiting beliefs may have been trying to serve you. You can write this in a journal, create a list, or simply think about your answers.

    Then, thank these limiting beliefs for the ways in which they served you. Afterwards, you can use any of the practices on this list to release them, or you can simply say, “I’m ready to release you now.” Feel the space around you open up as you prepare to create new beliefs that are more in line with the life you want to live.

    Next Steps

    So you’ve released your limiting beliefs; what comes next?

    In the beginning, you may fall back into old thought patterns that don’t reflect where you want to go with your life. When this happens, don’t judge or criticize yourself. Rather, react with love and a whole lot of self-compassion.

    It helps to have positive affirmations on-hand that lift your vibrations and help you to feel confident and empowered. Choose some of your favorite affirmations and save them to your phone (or print them out). Make sure to look at them every day to keep your mindset focused on empowerment and positivity. To help you get started, I’ve linked to some of my favorite positive affirmations below.

    If you find yourself falling back into old, limiting beliefs, you can repeat any of the practices on this list. Remember that it took you years to cultivate these beliefs, so it may take some time to release them. And that’s okay! In time, you’ll find that your old beliefs are slipping further and further away from your mindset, until you no longer fall back to them anymore.

    Manifestation Challenge

    What exactly is a manifestation challenge?

    A manifestation challenge is a challenge set for a specific amount of time that’s dedicated to helping you manifest anything you want in your life. Often, a manifestation challenge will last for 7, 14, or 30 days.

    In most manifestation challenges, you’ll find a variety of activities dedicated to helping you release limiting beliefs, raise your vibrations, and align you with the feelings of already having everything you desire.

    Below, you’ll learn about the benefits of participating in a manifestation challenge as well as the common components of a manifestation challenge. And don’t forget to download your free 30-day manifestation challenge to start creating the life of your dreams today!

    What is Manifestation?

    To manifest something means to visualize your dreams and desires and to vibrate at the frequency of your desires as if they’ve already come true. So if you want to attract abundance, become the embodiment of abundance right now. If you want to attract love, allow yourself to feel loved now. Like attracts like, so when you choose to feel these positive emotions throughout your day, you’ll attract more of this to you. To learn more about manifestation, check out my introductory guide here.

    Benefits of a Manifestation Challenge

    Why participate in a manifestation challenge? Here are just a few of the benefits:

    • A manifestation challenge will provide you with fun and easy activities that will do more than help you manifest your desires; they’ll also help you feel really good. And the best part is that when the challenge is over, you can continue to keep doing the activities in the challenge whenever you want!
    • It’s easy to let daily stresses distract you from your dreams. By participating in a manifestation challenge, you have specific daily goals that will help you stay focused on what you desire.
    • A manifestation challenge gives you something to look forward to every day. You can wake up excited about the day ahead because you know that everything you do today will lead you to an even better future.
    • If you’re doing a manifestation challenge in a group, you’ll have a team of people who will support you, lift you up, and cheer you on along the way. Instant vibration raiser. (If you’re doing a solo challenge, like the free challenge you can download below, send the link to a few of your friends and see if they want to join!)
    • And one of the most unexpected benefits of a manifestation challenge? You’ll learn about yourself along the way. Not only will you uncover any limiting beliefs you possess, but you’ll discover that you have the strength to rise above your deepest fears. You’ll realize that you are so much more powerful than you had ever realized. And you’ll uncover your inner magic. It’s always been there. Now it’s time to tap in.

    Common Components of a Manifestation Challenge

    Visualization

    Often, a manifestation challenge will include some kind of visualization element. It may instruct you to visualize a day in your dream life or to visualize the moment all your dreams come true. A visualization exercise is powerful because it not only allows you to set an intention for what you want to manifest, but it also lifts your vibrations.

    The key to a successful visualization practice? Don’t just see the details play out in your mind; allow yourself to feel all the high-vibe emotions of having your desires right now. When you do this, you directly connect yourself to the experience of having the thing(s) you desire, becoming a magnet for your dreams to manifest in your reality.

    Fun Fact

    Did you know your brain can’t actually tell the difference between the powerful visualization and reality? It has the same activity whether you’re physically doing the action or envisioning it in your mind. That’s why elite athletes and performers often commit hours solely to visualization. To illustrate the power of visualization, watch this Tedx talk by Ashanti Johnson on how her daily practice of visualization changed not only her life but ultimately the lives of her community through her work.

    Gratitude

    Gratitude is the highest vibration you can offer. Instead of focusing on what’s going wrong, it allows you to focus on what’s going right. Another instant vibration booster! In a manifestation challenge, you can practice gratitude by writing down what you’re grateful for and noticing things to feel thankful for throughout your day.

    Positive Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are present-tense statements that are designed to uplift and encourage while boosting self-belief and supporting your overall wellbeing. I am worthy is an example of a positive affirmation. So is, I have what it takes to succeed. There are truly an infinite amount of positive affirmations you can use to support your manifestations. In a manifestation challenge, use positive affirmations to lift your vibrations. They’ll also remind you of your inner power to create anything you want in this life.

    Scripting

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

    To learn more about scripting, check out my post, How to Manifest in a Journal (A Complete Guide).

    Limiting Beliefs

    A limiting belief is a deep-seated belief that holds you back from realizing your true potential and living the life of your dreams. In a manifestation challenge, there will often be at least one day dedicated to releasing limiting beliefs. So what exactly should you do?

    I 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 are holding me back. 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. 

    So if I wrote, “I’m not talented enough,” in the first column, then in the second column, I’d write, “I am absolutely talented enough. I have what it takes to thrive. I’m more than enough.” (As you can see, I like to get descriptive in the second column!)

    Highest Self

    Your highest self is your essential self; it’s the eternal part of you that’s untouched by human experiences. This is the truest, most authentic part of you.

    In a manifestation challenge, you may receive directions to align with your highest self.

    To do this, first spend some time thinking about your highest self. Who is your truest, most authentic self? It might help to write down everything that comes to mind.

    Then, spend the day aligning with your highest self. In any situation, you can ask yourself, what would my highest self do? How would my highest self react? What choice would my highest self make? Would my highest self be critical or compassionate? Would my highest self worry about the future or trust that everything will work out?

    Whenever you feel misaligned, simply choose to realign with your highest self, over and over again if needed.

    40 Positive Affirmations for Insecurity and Self-Doubt

    Below, discover 40 positive affirmations for insecurity and self-doubt. Let these gentle and empowering affirmations lift your spirits and remind you that in every situation, you are always worthy, no matter what.

    Understanding Your Insecurities

    Body insecurities. Relationship insecurities. Career insecurities. Insecurities about how you’re perceived in social situations. Insecurities about your own talents and abilities.

    These are just a few of the insecurities you may experience in your daily life.

    Overcoming your insecurities isn’t about suppressing them or pretending they don’t exist. Rather, it’s about going within and gently probing your insecurities and self-doubt with loving awareness. Where do these insecurities stem from? What past experiences led you to having these thoughts and feelings?

    And the greatest question of all: are they true?

    Because that’s your greatest weapon of all in the fight against your insecurities: the ability to recognize that not all of your thoughts and fears about yourself are true.

    You may never get rid of insecure thoughts completely, but you have the ability to recognize when you’re having such a thought and ask yourself, “Is it true?”

    For instance, you might have some insecurities about how you’ll be perceived in an upcoming social situation. Or you might have a job review coming up, and you worry that your boss might think you’re not performing up to standard. But when you have those thoughts, you can step back and ask if that’s really true. You know you’ve been going above and beyond. You know you’ve exceeded every task you’ve been given. And you know that you have shown up and proven yourself, time and time again.

    That’s when you can take a step back and say, “I recognize this thought as a product of self-doubt and insecurities, but I choose to lovingly release it, because I know it isn’t true.”

    Below, you’ll find 40 positive affirmations for insecurity and self-doubt. Some affirmations are universal, while others address specific types of insecurities, such as body insecurities.

    For more empowering affirmations to lift you up and guide you when you’re feeling the weight of your insecurities bearing down on you, I’ve added links to additional affirmations below.

    And for tips on how to use affirmations to get the most out of them, I encourage you to check out my post, How to Use Affirmations (So They Actually Work).

    Experiencing Anxiety

    What does anxiety feel like to you?

    For some, anxiety is most often experienced physically. Your chest may start to feel tight and hot. Your stomach might feel like it’s flipping over itself. Or maybe there’s tension in your head that just won’t go away.

    For others, anxiety might be experienced emotionally or mentally. A stream of steady, anxious thoughts might keep you up at night, or your anxiety may cause you to feel sad, angry, or overall pessimistic.

    And still, you might experience a little bit of all of it: physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. While it can be tempting to want to suppress your inner anxiety or label it as “bad,” it can be a healing exercise to go within to understand the source of your anxiety, how it feels in your body, and what practices help you when anxiety takes over.

    Below, you’ll find 30 gentle and calming journal prompts for anxiety. These journal prompts are meant to help you to gently probe your anxiety with kindness, compassion, and love. I encourage you to give yourself time and space to answer these prompts in a safe place where you’re free of outside distractions. Let yourself truly connect to your inner self. You might find it helpful to light some candles or play some soft music while you write.

    Note that these journal prompts are not meant to replace talking to a healthcare professional. For further anxiety resources, I encourage you to check out this article from Everyday Health. It includes a list of organizations that can provide valuable information about anxiety, resources for BIPOC communities, information about financial assistance, and more.

    What is Abundance?

    For financial abundance affirmations, check out 50 Money Affirmations to Manifest Limitless Abundance.

    What is abundance?

    For most of my life, I associated abundance with something that existed outside of myself. A life of pure abundance meant I’d have more than enough external “things” to survive and thrive.

    An abundance of food meant I’d have more than enough food to feed my family. An abundance of space to live in meant I’d have more than enough space for myself and my loved ones to live. And an abundance of money meant having more than enough money to live comfortably and financially support others.

    Even an abundance of the intangible things seemingly resulted from the tangible. The intangible includes an abundance of happiness, freedom, peace, creativity, and love.

    An abundance of happiness, I believed, would come when I worked in the career of my dreams and had everything I ever wanted.

    And an abundance of freedom would come when I had enough money to live the life I desired.

    And an abundance of love would come when I met someone who loved me unconditionally and when I had a large community of people to love me at all times.

    What I’ve learned in my journey is this:

    I had it backwards all along.

    Abundance isn’t something that purely exists outside of me; abundance exists within.

    And this is true for you, too.

    You are deeply connected to an eternally abundant Universe. True freedom comes by understanding that the abundance you see exists within.

    You don’t gain freedom through gaining financial affluence from external forces. You become free when you realize you have all the affluence you’re looking for inside you. And when you’re able to cultivate a feeling of true affluence and prosperity within, you’ll start seeing more of it in your outside world.

    This is true for every intangible and tangible thing you’ve ever desired. You already possess the power to have everything you’ve ever dreamed of and more. When you cultivate true joy, love, peace, passion, purpose, and freedom inside yourself, you’ll see these things reflected back to you in your outside world.

    Below, you’l find 50 abundance affirmations to embrace your limitlessness and create the truly abundant life you’ve always desired. As you repeat these affirmations, let them light up every cell of your being. Know that you are always worthy. You are infinitely powerful. You possess everything you need to create the most beautiful life you can imagine.
