    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!)

    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.

    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!

    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.
    scripting journal

    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.

    For deeper insight into your chakras as well as guidance on profound chakra healing, check out my Ultimate Chakra Healing Bundle, which includes a Chakra Healing eBook, Chakra Healing Workbook, and 8-Week Chakra Healing Guide. 

    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.

    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 isn’t a typical mindset affirmation, such as I am worthy or I am enough. Rather, a 55×5 manifestation affirmation is what I generally call a future pacing affirmation. This is an affirmation in which you express joy and gratitude that your desired manifestation, dream, and/or goal has already come true.

    For instance, if you want to manifest $1,000 this week, your affirmation might be, “I am so grateful I received $1,000 this week!”

    Once you’ve chosen your affirmation, you sit down on Day 1 and write that affirmation 55 times in a row in a notebook or on a piece of paper. So using the example above, you’d 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.

    So does this really work? Can you just write a sentence 55 times for 5 days in a row and manifest it into your reality? Is it truly that simple?

    Believe it or not, it actually works. I can say this with confidence because it’s worked for me many times throughout my manifestation journey–sometimes before I’ve even finished my five days.

    Below, I’ll explain how to make the most out of the 55×5 Manifestation Method and how to truly get it to work for you so that you can manifest your desires and create the life you’re dreaming of.

    And if you’re looking for help getting started, check out the 55×5 Manifestation Method Worksheet, which gives you the opportunity to print and handwrite your affirmations or type directly into the PDF editable document.

    How To Make The 55×5 Manifestation Method Work For You

    While the affirmation you choose here is important, the most important aspects of this manifestation method are the emotions, feelings, and frequencies you choose to vibrate.

    This is, in fact, the very foundation of manifestation: vibrating at the frequencies of your desires, even before your desires have manifested in your reality.

    Want to manifest abundance? Feel abundant now.

    Want to manifest love? Feel loved now.

    Feel all the positive emotions you’ll feel when your dreams and desires come true. Feel them now.

    As you sit to start writing your affirmation 55 times, you want to go into it with a positive, high-vibe mindset. Then, as you begin writing your affirmation, write the words as though they really have come true. Feel the emotions of your affirmation in your bones. Allow yourself to feel true joy, love, gratitude, and positivity.

    It doesn’t end there.

    When you shut your notebook, don’t shut down those emotions with it. Carry them with you throughout your day. Align yourself with these positive feelings, and truly act as if all of your dreams have come true.

    And if you catch yourself falling back into negative habits, that’s okay! Simply choose in that moment to realign with your truth: that you are a powerful manifestor capable of creating anything you want in this life.

    Focus on things to be grateful for in your daily life. Have love and compassion for all stages of your journey.

    Note that this is different than being obsessed and preoccupied with when and how your manifestations will come. In fact, I urge you to release the “when” and “how.” Hand these details over to the Universe. Trust that the Universe is taking care of all your dreams and desires.

    The 55×5 Manifestation Method works because it allows you to set an intention for exactly what you want to manifest and sets the foundation for high vibrations and positive emotions. Your only job is to feel good, cultivate joy, and know that you truly are worthy of having it all.

    How To Create 55×5 Manifestation Affirmations

    In the next section, I’m going to give you some ideas for 55×5 manifestation affirmations you can use in your writing. If you want to create your own affirmations, here are some tips:

    • Keep it short and succinct. You’ll likely be dedicating anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes writing your affirmation down 55 times each day. It’s far easier to keep your vibration high when your affirmation is short and to the point.
    • Be specific. Write down exactly what you want. Rather than write “a large amount of money,” write the specific amount of money you want to manifest. If there’s a certain job that you want, write down exactly what that job is. There are some instances when you may not be able to be too specific. For instance, if you want to manifest a date, you might not know who the person is that you’ll be dating. But you can still be specific by describing characteristics of this person or day of the week of your date. For example, you might say, “I am so grateful I’m going on a date with a sweet and funny guy this Saturday!”
    • Express gratitude. The two highest vibrations are love and gratitude, and there’s nothing more powerful than approaching this practice with an open heart and a feeling of sincere gratitude. I like to express gratitude by starting out my affirmation with the phrase, “I am so happy and grateful that . . .” It’s also important to feel that gratitude and appreciation in your bones as you’re writing down the affirmation. Approach it with the same feelings you would if this dream really has already come true.
    • Pick something you’re truly excited about! You’re about to spend a decent chunk of time for five days straight writing this affirmation. You don’t want to dread this practice; you want to be excited about it. Choose an affirmation and topic that you’ll feel truly excited to sit down and focus your energy on each day.

    Examples Of 55×5 Manifestation Affirmations

    Below are some examples of how you can phrase your 55×5 manifestation affirmation. Definitely feel free to modify the affirmations to fit your desires. For instance, you can change the amount of money you want to manifest or get specific about the exact make and model of car that you want to manifest.

    • I am so happy and grateful for the extra $1,000 I received this week! (Or: “I am so happy and grateful for the extra [insert amount here] I received this week!”)
    • I am so grateful that I’m going on a date with the partner of my dreams this Friday!
    • I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to work in my dream job.
    • Thank you, Universe, for blessing me with inspired ideas to complete my project.
    • I’m so grateful the sellers accepted my offer on my dream house!
    • I can’t believe I’m going on my dream vacation to Hawaii!
    • I am in awe of how this perfect job opportunity fell into my lap this week.
    • I feel joyful and thankful that I’m driving my dream car!
    • My heart is filled with gratitude for the 5 new clients I signed this week.
    • I truly appreciate the extra $5,000 I received this week!

    Okay, I’m going to break my own rules a little bit here. If any part of you is nervous or unsure about your manifesting abilities (this is totally normal if you’re just starting out), it’s okay to start small and get a little more general. This will help you to build confidence so that you feel good about manifesting the bigger, more specific stuff. Here are some examples of 55×5 manifestation affirmations you can use if you’re just starting out and want to build your confidence:

    • I am so grateful for all the inspired ideas that came to me this week.
    • I feel truly thankful for the love that has flowed to and through me all week.
    • I am stunned by how everything keeps working out perfectly for me.
    • Thank you, Universe, for filling my life with so much abundant joy and love.
    • I am awed and thankful for all the incredible opportunities that keep coming my way!

    More Tips & Tricks

    • Don’t get too preoccupied with the timeline. Part of my daily morning routine is to write down what I’m going to manifest each day. This can be anything from an inspired idea to a joyful moment to a great conversation with a friend. I love choosing small, feel-good things I’m going to create in my daily experience! I’ve noticed that sometimes, that thing I’ve chosen to manifest doesn’t happen that same day, but will often come the next morning or soon after. This has taught me to release my preoccupation with when something is going to manifest. If your chosen affirmation has you receiving $1,000 this week, and it doesn’t come right away, it’s okay! The best thing you can do for yourself is to release your worries about when it’s going to come and simply trust that it will come.
    • Make it fun! In the beginning of my manifestation journey, I fell into the trap of taking everything super seriously. I was always worried about doing everything perfectly, and it actually stressed me out to the point where I began to think that maybe manifestation just wasn’t for me. One of the best lessons I’ve learned along the way is to have fun with it! At its heart, manifestation is all about joy, freedom, peace, love, gratitude, and abundance–all the very best things in life.
    • Choose a time that works best for you. While I personally prefer to do this practice in the morning, you might feel too rushed in the morning to do this. And the last thing you want is to feel so rushed and hurried that you aren’t aligned with the positive feelings of your affirmation. If nighttime works best for you, that’s totally fine! Just remember to keep the high-vibe emotions throughout your day, and try to be consistent in doing this practice around the same time each day.
    • Trust the Universe. The Universe will always give you exactly what you need at exactly the right time. What’s meant for you will never pass you by. And also know that the Universe is your biggest supporter and cheerleader. It wants to see you succeed and is always working behind the scenes to support you in ways you can’t yet see.
    • Believe. In order for this practice to work, you have to trust believe it will work. Believe in yourself. Believe in the Universe. Believe that you have so much more power than you know.

    How To Manifest Something

    Before you learn how to manifest something using the ten unique manifestation methods in this guide, let’s define what manifestation is and how it works.

    Manifestation is, in its purest form, creation. You’re always manifesting things and experiences into your life because you’re always creating. In fact, being a creator is part of the very foundation of who you are.

    And most of the time, when you step back and look at your life, you’ll find that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.

    Once we understand this, we can begin to cultivate an inner world that matches what we want to see in our outer world. This is when we turn unconscious manifestation into intentional manifestation.

    To intentionally 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. Like attracts like, so when you choose to feel the positive emotions related to your desires throughout your day, you’ll attract more of this good-feeling thing to you.

    So how does this work?

    Let’s say you dream of finding your soulmate.

    Step back and consider why it’s so important for you to find this person. How do you imagine this person will make you feel? Maybe you imagine that they’ll make you feel loved, cherished, treasured, and adored. Okay. So now you decide you want to manifest this person.

    In order to manifest your soulmate, you want to begin imagining what it would look and feel like to have this person in your life.

    Visualize how a day in your life will look like with them in it. And those incredible feelings of being loved, cherished, treasured, and adored?

    You don’t have to wait until you meet your soulmate to begin experiencing those feelings.

    You can allow yourself to feel loved, cherished, treasured, and adored today.

    Imagine that you’re a magnet. Everything you put out into the universe is exactly what you attract to you (remember, like attracts like). So if you put out the vibration of being loved, cherished, treasured, and adored right now (and allow yourself to truly feel all the positive emotions related to these feelings), you’ll attract more experiences that will make you feel loved, cherished, treasured, and adored in your outer world. 

    Truly, this starts with loving yourself. Cherishing yourself. Treasuring yourself. Adoring yourself. And likely, you’ll be so busy cultivating unconditional self-love, you won’t even worry about when your soulmate will finally show up.

    And that’s exactly when your manifestation will come true.

    When you stop looking for it and simply allow yourself to live fully, feeling all the positive emotions you want to feel today.

    This is, in essence, the basis of manifestation:

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

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

    But that’s just the beginning. Below, I’m going to take you through ten tested and proven manifestation methods. (Be sure to pay special attention to the first one, as this is your manifestation blueprint.)

    Each method will serve and support you in your manifestation journey as you begin creating the life of your deepest, most heartfelt dreams.

    1. The Manifestation Blueprint

    The reason why so many people struggle with manifestation is that they don’t understand how it truly works. They treat manifestation like a game, but manifestation is actually an art. And there’s a very specific blueprint you can follow to manifest what you really want in your life:

    • You set an intention based on the authentic, deeply felt dreams that have been placed in your heart.
    • You communicate this intention to the Universe. Your positive vibrations are one way of communicating this intention, as by vibrating at the frequency of your desires, you express that you’re ready to receive more of this good-feeling thing.
    • The Universe works behind the scenes to set everything in motion. It communicates back to you in the form of signs, synchronicities, and most importantly, your own intuition. Being in the vibration of what you desire allows you to receive these signs and inner nudges with clarity. (In contrast, being in a state of stress, worry, and anger will cause you to miss these signs and feelings.)
    • Then, you take inspired action based on the communication the Universe has given you. 
    • This communication between you and the Universe continues. The Universe sends you signs (usually through your intuition), and you follow your intuition by taking aligned action. Essentially, once the Universe communicates what to do, you do that thing.
    • And as you follow this path, you’ll begin to see your dream manifest into your reality. Keep following the nudges. Keep taking inspired action. And stay in the vibration of your dreams and desires so you can receive divine guidance when it comes.

    This is why manifestation is an art, not a game. It isn’t about “beating” the Universe. It’s about co-creating with the Universe. And if you can master this, you can master manifestation – for life.

    2. Visualization

    Visualization is key in transforming your dreams from abstract ideas in your head to tangible things you get to have and experience in your reality. In manifestation, visualization allows you to simulate the experience of already having your desires in the present moment. This is a profound practice to help you get clear about what you want and begin vibrating at the frequency of your desires today.

    What makes visualization truly powerful is that it helps you to get in alignment with universal energy. This makes you more receptive to connecting with your intuition and taking inspired action.

    Meditation, vision boards, and scripting are a few practices that can help you visualize your dreams and desires. In this article, you can learn more about the profound benefits of visualization (there’s more than you think!) and the various visualization practices you can use in your daily life in order to manifest your deepest dreams and desires.

    3. The 55×5 Manifestation Method

    The 55×5 (also sometimes written as 5×55 or 555) Manifestation Method is one of my favorite journaling methods for manifesting. The guidelines are 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 $10,000 this week!”

    So on Day 1, you’ll write “I am so grateful I received $10,000 this week!” 55 times in a row.

    Then, on Day 2, you’d again write, “I am so grateful I received $10,000 this week!” 55 times in a row.

    Days 3, 4, and 5, same thing.

    As you write your affirmations, you want to truly feel like you have this thing now. If you did manifest $10,000, how would you feel? Would you feel grateful? Joyful? Radiant?

    Allow yourself to feel those emotions now. Then, carry them with you throughout your day. This is a great practice for truly uncovering your manifesting power. It helps you to articulate exactly what you want and sets a solid foundation for your day so you can stay in the vibration of your desires.

    For more ideas and tips on the 55×5 manifestation method, you can check out this article, where I go into even more detail about this powerful manifestation method.

This easy-to-use worksheet gets powerful results and is the perfect addition to your manifestation practice.

    4. The 369 Method

    The 369 Method has a similar setup to the 55×5 Manifestation Method with a few differences in how it’s carried out. In the 369 Method, you choose an affirmation and write it down 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times in the evening. Do this for 21 days in a row. As you write your affirmation, maintain high vibrations and make sure to be consistent. I also find it helpful to say my affirmation aloud throughout the day.

    If you want to learn more about the 369 Method, just click here!

    5. 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 kind of like writing a journal entry, except instead of writing about your current life, you write about the life you want to live as if you’re already living it.

    So if you want to manifest love, you might write about how you’re living with the love of your life in your dream home. When you do this, you’ll only write in past or present tense.

    If you’re writing in past tense, you might recount the day you met your partner. You could also write as though it’s the end of the day, and you’ve just had your first date with the perfect person.

    If you write in the present tense, you could write about what a typical day looks like with the love of your life as you’re living it.

    Truly, the possibilities are endless.

    The key to making scripting work is to feel all the positive emotions of having your desires right now in this present moment.

    So if you’re writing about how happy you are to spend your life with this perfect person, allow yourself to feel truly joyful and grateful for all that you have. And even more, give yourself permission to feel loved, cherished, and adored by this perfect person.

    Insert gratitude throughout your script, and end it by thanking the Universe for delivering to you all your deepest dreams and desires.

    To learn more about scripting, I’ve added links below that will provide you with examples, suggested sentence starters, and even a free PDF template to help you get started.

    And if you want to get started with scripting today, be sure to check out 30 Perfect Days, a digital manifestation journal available in my online shop. Each day, you’ll receive a unique scripting prompt that will help you to live as if you already have your dreams and desires right now.

    6. The Pillow Method For Manifestation

    The Pillow Method For Manifestation is one of my personal favorites, as it feels as though you’re truly doing something magical when you complete this practice.

    First, you want to take either a script you’ve written about your dream life (see #5 above) or a powerful manifestation affirmation that affirms you already have what you desire.

    For instance, you might write “I am in my dream job, making a positive difference in people’s lives and doing what I love every single day.”

    Once you have your script or affirmation written down, place it under your pillow. Before you go to bed, visualize your desired manifestation in your mind’s eye. Imagine having this desire right now, feeling all the positive emotions of your dreams coming true.

    Let this be the last thing you think about before falling asleep, allowing it to sink into your subconscious brain. Continue this practice for about 7 to 10 days, or until it feels right to remove it.

    7. Essential Oils For Manifesting

    Manifesting oil is a blend of essential oils, herbs, and other natural sources that are specifically created to help you manifest your desires. Using these essential oils is a great way to enhance and amplify your manifestation practice.

    I like to use manifesting oils on my scripts, journal entries, and manifestation affirmations. Manifesting oil can also be used on a specific object, such as cash, a love note, a candle, or even yourself.

    One of my personal favorite ways to use it is by rubbing a little bit on my script or affirmation before I put it under my pillow if I’m doing the pillow method.

    If you’d like to learn more about essential oils and oil blends for manifesting your desires (as well as how to use them)click here.

    8. 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 out of sorts, 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.

    For more on embracing gratitude, check out these posts:

    9. 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 food delivery 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.

    10. 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 that 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 outside of yourself.

    Raising Your Vibration

    To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the phrase, raise your vibration.

    Don’t get me wrong: I absolutely believe in the spirit of it, and I’ve used the phrase myself many times–even here on this website.

    But I think there’s something missing when we say that we’re raising our vibration.

    It isn’t simply that you’re raising your vibration; you are positive vibrations.

    Here’s what I mean:

    Think about the word love. What is love to you?

    Is love something you find outside yourself, or is love something that starts within you?

    At your purest, most foundational state, you are love. Love is your essence and being. Love is who you are.

    So you’re never trying to raise your vibration to the frequency of love.

    Rather, you’re releasing everything that makes you forget who you are; you’re letting go of all the heaviness that weighs you down and separates you from love.

    And this is true for all positive vibrations. You are joy. You are freedom. You are peace. You are abundance.

    You don’t need to reach outside of yourself to gain access to these states. None of it is ever separate from you.

    So when I use the phrase raise your vibration, know that this doesn’t mean you’re trying to achieve or become something that you’re not. Rather, it means that you’re returning to the very core of who you are.

    Why Raise Your Vibration?

    The phrase raise your vibration is often used in discussions about manifestation, so let’s begin here.

    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. This belief is rooted in the idea that what we give out, we get back.

    So if you vibrate at the frequency of love, you invite more love to enter your life. If you vibrate at the frequency of abundance, you attract more abundance to you. And if you vibrate at the frequency of joy, you attract more joyful experiences into your reality.

    Now, does this mean you have to force yourself into a state of joy and positivity all of the time? Absolutely not.

    In fact, trying to suppress your emotions in order to manufacture false positivity can be more harmful in the long-run. I discuss this in more detail below in the Emotional Guidance Scale section below.

    Beyond manifestation though, maintaining a high vibration is important because you deserve to live a life that makes you feel truly good and alive. This moment right now is your life, and you deserve to experience true joy each and every day–not just every once in a while.

    Below are 10 practices you can utilize to quickly raise your vibration in 30 seconds or less. You’ll also find some suggestions for longer practices you can incorporate into your daily life to maintain a high vibration and release anything that may be weighing you down.

    How To Raise Your Vibration In 30 Seconds (Or Less)

    Gratitude

    When it comes to supporting your mind, body, and spirit, there are two vibrations that rank supreme: gratitude and love. (We’ll get to love down below.)

    One of the quickest ways I can get myself back into alignment when I’m feeling off is through choosing gratitude. Often, it’s easy to focus on what’s going wrong, and we lose sight of what’s going right. Gratitude is a gentle nudge to root ourselves to the present moment and focus on the abundance that already exists in our lives.

    A simple yet profound way to raise your vibration when you’re feeling low is to think of three things you’re grateful for in that moment. You might choose to look around the room or space you’re in and find three things in the room that you appreciate. Or you can look within and find three things inside yourself that you feel truly thankful for: your talents, your abilities, your body, your breath.

    You can also look at all the components that make up your beautiful life: your family and friends, your home, your job, and all that you have.

    When your vibrations are low, find things in your life that you can be grateful for right now. Recognize that while everything may not be perfect, there is still so much in the world to appreciate.

    And if you need help, check out this article on 500 things to be grateful for today.

    Present Moment

    Often, when my vibration is low, it’s because I’m worried about the future: bills, deadlines, relationships, and all kinds of uncertainties swirling through my mind.

    And while I have compassion for the part of me that worries and gets anxiety about the future, I also recognize that a constant state of worry puts me at a low frequency, causing me to attract the very experiences that I’m worried about.

    So how do I release my worries and raise my vibration?

    I simply take a deep breath and say, “In this moment, I have everything I need.”

    It seems like such a simple phrase, but it has changed my inner world profoundly. These words remind me that right now, in this present moment, I have all that I need. The future isn’t real. It doesn’t exist yet. Right now is all that exists. And right now, in this moment, I always have more than enough.

    Here are a few other mantras that can help you return to the present moment:

    • “I am exactly where I am meant to be.”
    • “All is well.”
    • “I choose to be here, right now.”
    • “This moment is a miracle.”

    I also recommend connecting with your breath and taking a deep, soulful inhale, then releasing all of the negative energy through your exhale. Root yourself here, in this moment. Let this moment give you everything you need.

    Positive Affirmations

    If you follow me on social media or have read some of my other blog posts, you might already know that I’m all about positive affirmations. They’re an integral part of my daily world, and I believe in them wholeheartedly because of how profoundly they’ve changed my inner world.

    So first, what exactly is a positive affirmation? An affirmation is a positive affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    While I have hundreds and likely even thousands of positive affirmations that I’ve repeated throughout my life, I’ve found that some of the most meaningful are often the simplest:

    I am worthy.

    I am whole.

    I am enough.

    If you’re in a low vibration and need a quick way to pick yourself up, recite an empowering affirmation that resonates with you. This might change depending on the experience. For instance, when I’m working out, I’ll affirm that I am strong, capable, and resilient, and if I’m in a situation that requires me to take a risk, I’ll affirm that I am courageous and able to handle anything that comes my way.

    The key with affirmations is to truly feel the positive words in your bones. So when I say that I’m worthy, I truly feel worthy. And when I say that I’m brave and courageous, I feel in my heart that I am those things.

    If you’re looking for inspiration on positive affirmations that you can start using today, check out the blog posts below!

    Vision Board

    A vision board is a collection of words and/or images that represent your highest self living your ideal life. Some common components of a vision board include the following categories: Relationships, Career, Home, Health, Wealth, Spirituality, Fitness, Car, Self-Care, and Hobbies/Fun. Many people like to include positive affirmations on their vision board as well.

    What makes a vision board a powerful tool isn’t simply the existence of the pictures or words on it but the positive feelings they inspire when you look at them.

    To unlock the magic of a vision board, you must allow yourself to feel the positive emotions of the images within yourself. If you put financial prosperity, a loving relationship, and freedom to travel on your board, then visualize what it would be like to have those things now. Imagine how you would feel the day you have it all and feel it in this moment.

    When you’re at a low vibration, allow yourself to step back and look at your vision board for a few seconds. Feel the positive emotions associated with all of your beautiful dreams.

    On the go? No problem! I actually use the VisuApp on my phone for a way to keep my vision board with me at all times! The app allows you to save images and write empowering affirmations with your images if you wish. (I have no connection to VisuApp; I just like using it!)

    If you prefer the DIY version of a mobile vision board, you can also create a folder in your photos called My Future and save images to it that represent your dreams and desires. Anytime you’re feeling down, scan through your photos and breathe in the positive energy from the pictures.

    Love

    I’ve mentioned before that love and gratitude are the highest vibrations, so if you’re able to lift yourself into a vibration of love, there’s truly no better place to be. (But if you’re not able to? That’s okay! I speak more about this in the Emotional Guidance Scale section below.)

    So how exactly do you do this?

    This might sound cheesy, but one practice that’s really helped me is simply telling myself I love you several times a day. When I’m feeling down, I’ll look into my own reflection and say, “I love you.” And when I’m internally beating myself up because I made a mistake, I’ll again tell myself I love you.

    This is my way of saying that yes, I’m imperfect and make mistakes sometimes, but I am still worthy of unconditional love.

    Another practice is similar to the gratitude practice I mentioned above: find three things in your current environment that represent love to you. It could be a necklace from your mom, a bouquet of flowers from your partner, a drawing from your child, or something else meaningful.

    If there’s nothing in your current environment that symbolizes love for you, simply think about three people, things, or experiences that represent love to you and feel the love you have in your heart for these beautiful parts of your life.

    One final thing – and I fully admit that this isn’t easy and that you may roll your eyes at me – is to silently send a person love, even if they’re the catalyst for your low vibration. Someone cut you off in traffic? It’s okay to react angrily, but don’t hold onto that anger. Feel it, release it, and send them well-wishes. The same could go for a boss who gives you a last-minute task or when you have a frustrating experience at the grocery store.

    You don’t have to like the experience. But you don’t have to hold onto it either.

    Release it and choose love. Be love. See love. The more you choose love, the more unexpected places you’ll find love in your life.

    Nature

    If you don’t have time to go on a long nature walk, see if you can step outside for thirty seconds. Stand in the sun. Breathe in the fresh air. Connect with your breath. Connect with the world around you. Remember that like a tree, you are strong, centered, stable, and rooted firmly to the ground.

    Hugs

    This might be the simplest on this list, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an important or meaningful practice. I’ve often found that a warm embrace from someone I love is exactly what I need to lift me out of a low vibration. It reminds me of what’s truly important and helps me to feel love and gratitude for what I have.

    Hug your partner, child, parent, friend, or anyone else who feels like love to you. (This can also be a pet!)

    Breathing Exercises

    A breathing exercise is conscious, purposeful breathing with the intention of calming the mind, relieving stress, improving your lung function, and grounding yourself to the present moment.

    What I love about breathing exercises is that they feel like mini-meditations that you can do practically anytime and anywhere.

    My personal favorite breathing exercise is alternate nostril breathing, which you can read more about here.

    Another simple yet powerful practice is the 4-7-8 breathing technique. In this practice, you inhale through your nose for 4 seconds, pause at the top of your inhale for 7 seconds, and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. Repeat this 4 to 8 times in a session.

    Breathing exercises are known to help calm the mind, reduce stress and anxiety, relax the body, and improve overall well-being. If you’re feeling particularly anxious and stressed, see if you can pause for a few moments and focus on your breathing.

    Remember what I said in the intro: raising your vibration isn’t so much about becoming something as it is releasing everything you’re not. A breathing exercise allows you to release the heavy energy that comes from the outer world so you can return to the core of who you are in your inner world: peaceful, steady, calm, centered, and strong.

    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.

    I’ve found that this practice especially helps when my low vibrational state is self-imposed i.e. when I know I’m overreacting or being unreasonable, but the surface-level part of me is doubling down on the negativity.

    In these moments, I ask myself, “What would my highest self do?”

    For me, I know my highest self is gentle, loving, compassionate, and kind, so when I ask myself what my highest self would do, I know that she (I) would embody these qualities in all situations. This is a powerful practice to raise your vibration because it allows you to release negative feelings that aren’t serving you and to align with the energy of love.

    Now, I just want to note that this practice isn’t meant to guilt you into anything. It’s not meant to make you feel guilty for any negativity you may be experiencing. You are a human being who is allowed the grace of imperfection. It’s all a part of the beautiful messiness of the human experience.

    This practice is simply meant to remind you of who you truly are and to release the bad stuff that sometimes gets in the way of that. And when you align with your true self, you’re able to release anything that’s lowering your vibration.

    Light

    Years ago, the first time I did a guided meditation, the instructor gently guided me to close my eyes and imagine that a white beam of light was shining down on me. The light entered through my head and slowly spread to fill my entire being. I saw this light filling up my cells and radiating from within, casting a soft glow around my entire body.

    This light was love. It was protection. It was a reminder of my eternal self. And it showed me that I am never alone and that I am always, always loved.

    If it’s safe to do so, you can choose at any moment to close your eyes and feel this light within and all around you. This light is always a part of you. Sometimes, it’s obscured from our vision due to external influences, but we can choose at any moment to connect with it again.

    This light is a reminder that you are something more than this human experience. You are not trying to find high vibrations; you are high vibrations. You’re simply releasing anything that suppresses this truth.

    Longer Practices to Raise Your Vibration

    When you have a little more time, here are some longer practices you can do to raise your vibration:

    • Meditation
    • Yoga
    • Time Spent in Nature
    • Exercise
    • Journal
    • Funny YouTube Videos (Celebrity Jeopardy clips and funny cat videos are my personal favorites.)
    • Self-Care Activities
    • Creative Activities (Create not to be productive or good. Simply create for the love of creating.)
    • Quality Time with Someone You Love (Do you have someone in your life who always makes you feel good? Plan a lunch date or movie night!)
    • Reading
    • Funny TV Shows and Movies
    • Game Night
    • Nap (Is the source of your low vibration a lack of sleep?)
    • Eat (Or are you hangry?)
    • Dance
    • Sing
    • Cuddle with a Pet

    Emotional Guidance Scale

    If you’re experiencing a particularly low vibration, you don’t immediately have to force yourself back into a high vibration that doesn’t really feel honest or good to you. In fact, trying to suppress your feelings is one of the worst things you can do, because ultimately, that energy doesn’t really go away. It just becomes stuck inside of you and lingers until you’re ready to deal with it.

    Abraham Hicks’ Emotional Guidance Scale is the best example I’ve seen to explain how you can help yourself in these situations.

    The Emotional Guidance Scale is a scale of emotions that we often feel throughout our lives. These emotions range from Joy, Appreciation, Empowerment, Freedom, and Love to Fear, Grief, Depression, Despair, and Powerlessness.

    In between all of these emotions, though, are a bunch of other commonly felt emotions. For instance, Positive Expectation and Belief may not be at the same level as Joy and Love, but they’re still pretty high up there. On the other hand, emotions like Discouragement or Anger may be perceived as negative emotions, but they’re not as low as Depression or Grief.

    If your emotions are at a level of Depression or Grief, it could actually be detrimental to try to jump straight to feelings of Love and Joy. Why? Because it likely won’t be real.

    Like I said above, trying to suppress your negative emotions and force yourself to feel positive only means you’re holding onto those negative emotions within, allowing that energy to stagnate inside your body. Healing requires feeling and understanding your emotions before you can release them.

    It’s also really, really hard to force yourself to go from a feeling of grief to one of joy. Doing this often forces you into something you’re not ready for, and if you’re unable to reach that state of joy, you’ll likely feel even worse as a result.

    So what can you do? Instead of reaching for a vibration that is far beyond your current state, constantly reach for a slightly better vibration.

    Maybe you can’t jump from Grief to Joy, but you might be able to jump from Grief to Anger, which is actually higher up on the Emotional Guidance Scale. Then maybe you’ll jump from Anger to Blame, and from Blame to Disappointment. Disappointment might turn into Frustration, which turns into Pessimism, then Boredom. And from Boredom, you move to Contentment, then Hopefulness, then Positive Expectation, then Enthusiasm, then Passion, and finally, you reach the levels of Joy and Love.

    (Of course, it’s very rarely as easy as it sounds. Most likely, you’ll continue to jump up and back down again, and that’s okay. Give yourself extra compassion as you go through this process.)

    So when you hear the term raise your vibration, know that this doesn’t mean you have to jump to the highest possible emotions all the time. It means constantly reaching for the better feeling, even if it’s only a little bit at a time.

    Here’s the entirety of Abraham Hicks’ Emotional Guidance Scale, from highest to lowest. You can also learn more about the scale here.

    • Joy/Appreciation/Empowerment/Freedom/Love
    • Passion
    • Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
    • Positive Expectation/Belief
    • Optimism
    • Hopefulness
    • Contentment
    • Boredom
    • Pessimism
    • Frustration/Irritation/Impatience
    • Overwhelment
    • Disappointment
    • Doubt
    • Worry
    • Blame
    • Discouragement
    • Anger
    • Revenge
    • Hatred/Rage
    • Jealousy
    • Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
    • Fear/Grief/Depression/Despair/Powerlessness

    Choosing Your Perfect Manifestation Journal

    When I first decided to go on the hunt for the perfect manifestation journal, I thought I might rank them from best to worst and give you recommendations for which one you should choose.

    But after flipping through one gorgeous journal after another, I quickly realized that wasn’t going to work.

    You see, there isn’t really a “worst” one in the bunch.

    Rather, it’s more a matter of what fits your individual needs.

    Some manifestation journals focus specifically on scripting, while others utilize practices like the 369 or 55×5 methods. Some are specifically focused on helping you to manifest money, while others center around raising your vibrations through gratitude practices.

    Your “perfect” manifestation journal is going to depend on a number of factors: your manifestation level, how much time you have to dedicate to journaling each day, and most importantly, what resonates most with your energy.

    Below, you’ll find the 12 best manifestation journals you can purchase today. Each one focuses on a different aspect of manifesting, and they can take anywhere between 5 to 30+ minutes a day to complete.

    And if you’re looking for a manifestation journal you can start using today, I definitely encourage you to check out 30 Perfect Days, a digital manifestation journal available in my online shop.

    This 30-day manifestation journal is designed to help you align with the emotions of having your dreams and desires in the present moment. Each day, you’ll receive a unique scripting prompt that will help you to live as if you already have your dreams and desires right now.

    Best Planner: Law of Attraction Planner

    Okay, this one cheats just a tiny bit because it’s technically called a planner, but I promise, it’s a cheat in the best way possible.

    This Law of Attraction Planner has it all: journal pages, a success road map, productivity stickers, and so much more. Like a normal planner, there’s space to write your appointments, meetings, and other scheduled activities in the weekly calendar pages. I love that these pages also have a Positive Habit Maker where you can track habits such as gratitude, meditation, and any other practices want to prioritize.

    There’a also monthly calendars in which you can write feel-good intentions, desired goals, and action steps, plus space to create a mind map.

    I think my favorite pages, though, are the monthly reflections. This space includes lines to write down your achievements, what you learned, people who inspired you, and so much more. It also has some incredible reflection questions, such as, “Did I fully enjoy whatever I was doing this month? Was I really ‘here’ or was I just showing up? How can I be more present?

    And did I also mention that there’s a foldable vision board?

    I wholeheartedly recommend this planner/journal for both the beginner and experienced manifestor who wants to start creating the life of their dreams today.

    Best For Manifesting Money: Money Manifesting Workbook

    Unleash Your Inner Money Babe: A Money Manifesting Workbook is an awesome option if you’re looking to manifest financial abundance in your life. The book guides you through 21 days of exercises all centering around your money mindset.

    Before you begin the exercises, you set a goal for the amount of money you want to manifest. (The book recommends $1,000.) By the end of the 21 days, you’ll have completely restructured your money mindset for the better, and you’ll have manifested some serious cash.

    Note that this one isn’t purely a journal as there are exercises for you to complete as well. For instance, on Day 1, you clear out your wallet (and other spaces in your home/workplace) of junk/receipts, straighten out your dollar bills, and organize your money. At the end of each exercise, there are reflection questions that you can use in your journaling practice.

    If you go all-in and release your doubts and hesitations, you’ll be truly amazed by the pure magic that manifests in your life when you start doing these exercises. To increase the high vibes, I recommend pairing it with a notebook that has some glitter and gold on it, like this gorgeous Do More of What Makes You Sparkle golden polka dot notebook.

    Best Blank Journal: The Universe Has Your Back Journal

    First thing’s first: this one is not a guided journal. But I wanted to include it on this list for a few reasons. Gabrielle Bernstein is a major name in the manifestation space, and she consistently produces incredible books, affirmation cards, and more to support others in their manifestation journeys.

    The Universe Has Your Back Journal is absolutely beautiful and includes some high-vibe quotes and affirmations to support you in your manifestation journey. I love this option for the manifestor who wants to freely journal without strict guidance. You can also find some awesome manifestation guided journal prompts on Pinterest, so be sure to check there!

    Furthermore, you can use this journal for the 369 method or the 55×5 manifestation method, both of which I talk about below.

    I’d also highly recommend checking out Gabrielle Bernstein’s book, The Universe Has Your Back, and her beautiful The Universe Has Your Back Affirmation Cards to lovingly guide you through your manifestations.

    Best Gratitude Journal: The 5-Minute Gratitude Journal

    Don’t underestimate the power of a gratitude journal to jump start your manifestations. Especially not one like The 5-Minute Gratitude Journal, which packs an immense amount of power in just a few minutes a day.

    Every day, you’re given uplifting gratitude prompts like, “One reason my life is already great,” and “One beautiful reason to be happy right now.” Each prompt only requires you to write a sentence or two, making this something you can do whenever it suits your schedule. Additionally, you also get an inspirational quote and a positive affirmation each day that truly helps you to cultivate feelings of joy, gratitude, peace, and trust.

    The fastest and easiest way to manifest the life of your dreams is to feel grateful for what you have right now. This journal is the perfect tool to help you get started.

    Best Beginner-Friendly Journal: Manifestation Magick

    Manifestation Magick is the perfect journal for anyone who is new to manifestation journaling. What I love about this journal is that it allows you to experiment with three different manifestation techniques: the 369 method, the 55×5 method, and scripting. You’ll find easy-to-follow directions for each method, and by trying out each one, you can decide which methods resonate most with your energy. You can also decide to use all of the methods, which will help you to become a master manifestor in no time.

    Best For Personal Growth: The Book of Dreams Come True

    The Book of Dreams Come True is the manifestation journal for the person who is willing to put in a little extra time to truly sit with their thoughts and write what’s in their heart. It’s filled with incredible journal prompts to help you release negativity and embrace joy, positivity, love, and light.

    I love this journal because it truly empowers you to embrace your own creativity and imagination. This is a journal that will lead you through a journey of beautiful self-discovery, helping you to understand your goals and desires, feel gratitude for all that you have, and create the brilliant and magical life you desire.

    Best 369 Journal: Three Six Nine Affirmation Journal

    The Three Six Nine Affirmation Journal utilizes a manifestation method in which you write your desire in affirmation form three times in the morning, six times in the afternoon, and nine times in the evening. Doing this for 33 days straight amplifies your affirmations and intentions. There’s enough space in this journal to do this for two 33-day cycles.

    As a huge believer in the power of affirmations, I love that this method is so simple yet profound. Each time you repeat these affirmations, you’re rewiring your brain to truly believe what you’re affirming. This also raises your vibrations, which is the foundation of manifestation. The journal itself is simple yet beautiful, and for less than $10, it provides you with everything you need to start manifesting the life of your dreams.

    Best “Short-On-Time” Journal: The Five Minute Journal

    The Five Minute Journal is the perfect tool for raising your vibration on limited time. Each morning, you can write down three things you’re grateful for, three positive affirmations, and three things that would make today great. At the end of the day, you can reflect on three amazing things that happened and three things that would’ve made the day even better.

    This journal is a great resource for providing inspiration and motivation and helping you to cultivate an outlook of positivity and optimism.

    Best 55×5 Journal: 555 Manifestation Journal

    The 55×5 manifestation method is a practice in which you write your chosen affirmation 55 times in a row (in one sitting) for five days straight. The affirmation you choose should correspond with your intended manifestation. For example, you might write the affirmation, “I am so happy and grateful that I received an extra $1,000 this week!

    Now, if you’re side-eyeing me right now, I totally get it. It sounds almost too simple. But it’s one of those things that’s so simple, it actually works. The key here is to be in a high-vibrational state when you sit down to write your affirmations. It’s also important to hold onto those good feelings even after you complete the practice.

    You definitely don’t need a special manifestation journal to complete this practice. But what I like about the 555 Manifestation Method Journal is that it cleanly divides the 55 lines so you don’t have to count them. For less than $10, it’s an inexpensive time saver that will carry you through your manifesting journey.

    Best For Lifting Vibrations: Daily Rituals

    I’ll admit, this one surprised me. At first glance, I thought it was just a book on affirmations, which is great – just not what I wanted when looking for manifestation journals.

    But I was wrong.

    The Daily Rituals workbook is all about lifting your vibrations so you can attract similiar high-vibrational objects, people, and experiences into your life. Each chapter has a powerful affirmation with an explanation/definition of that affirmation. After the affirmation, there’s a powerful exercise to complete and a profound journal prompt that will help you to cultivate joy, gratitude, and unconditional self-love.

    To increase the high vibes, I like to pair this workbook with this beautifully crafted The Universe Journal.

    Best Goal-Oriented Journal: This Year I Will

    Do not sleep on this book. It is an absolute powerhouse.

    The prompts in the This Year I Will Guided Journal read as a step-by-step guide to manifestation. You start by identifying your goals and your why. Then there are visualizations for how you’ll feel when you achieve these goals and what a day in your life will look like once you have what you desire. And this is just the beginning. Once you get to the weekly reflections, you truly dive deep into a treasure chest of uplifting thoughts and good vibrations. There is so much goodness in this book, I can’t rave about it enough.

    The one key difference between this journal and the others on this list is that it’s more of a weekly journal than a daily journal. Depending on your preferences, this might be a positive or a negative. Even if you’re looking for more of a daily journal, I’d definitely recommend using this journal in addition to one of the daily journals on this list. I promise – it’s worth it.

    Best For Advanced Manifestors: 100-Day Guided Manifestation Journal

    If you’re looking for a pure manifestation journal, it’d be hard to beat this one. The Law of Attraction 100-Day Guided Journal has everything you need in a manifestation journal. It’s a guided journal filled with powerful prompts and daily affirmations, plus directions and words of wisdom. Even on your toughest days, this journal will guide you to living as your highest and most authentic self.

    The reason I recommend this one for more advanced manifestors is because some of the prompts can be a bit more complex. If you’re a beginner, I’d recommend starting with one of the others on this list and working your way up to this one.

    Getting Started: Guided Meditations For Manifesting

    Meditation is a profound way to connect to your heart’s deepest dreams and desires. Not only can meditation help you to cultivate inner peace, tap into your intuition, and lean a little deeper into gratitude, but it can also be a powerful way to visualize and align with the thoughts, feelings, and images of having your desires in this present moment.

    And guided manifestation meditations are a powerful place to start.

    First, what exactly is a manifestation meditation?

    A manifestation meditation is a meditation specifically designed to help you align with the positive thoughts and emotions of your dreams and desires, lifting your vibrations so that you become a magnet for all of your deepest dreams.

    Guided meditations for manifesting can be an easy yet profound way to help you set intentions, cultivate gratitude, lift your vibration, and visualize the truest, most beautiful life you can imagine for yourself.

    And the best part? They don’t actually have to take very much time.

    As you’ll see, most of the guided meditations below are only about ten minutes long, yet they’re filled with tools to help you embody the vibration of already having your dreams and desires in this present moment.

    While you can do these meditations any time of the day, I especially love to listen to them in the morning shortly after I wake up. I’ve found that by starting my day with a meditation, I set a positive foundation for the day ahead.

    And when you specifically listen to a guided meditation for manifesting your desires in the morning, you can carry that positive energy from the meditation with you throughout the day.

    Below, I’ve linked to nine of my favorite guided manifestations for manifesting love, abundance, and more. You’ll notice that all of these meditations are available for free through Insight Timer. I have no affiliations with Insight Timer and don’t receive anything for these links. I’ve been using Insight Timer for years, and it’s by far my favorite app on my phone. I’m including it here because I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    If you want to download the app, you should be able to find it on your device’s app store. You can also check out their website to learn more about what they offer.

    I sincerely hope these guided meditations for manifesting your dreams can serve and support you on your path as you move forward in creating a life that feels good and true to you.

    And know that it doesn’t matter if you’re new to meditation or an experienced meditator; these meditations will serve you throughout your entire journey. (I’ve been meditating for years, and I still come back to many of these same meditations repeatedly.)

    No matter where you are in your life journey, Sharon Kirstin’s Manifest Love meditation is a powerful reminder that love has never left you.

    The Importance Of Taking Small Steps (For Manifestation)

    We often focus on the really big actions we take to achieve our dreams, but the path to manifesting your dreams and desires is most often paved in the small steps you take each day. Below, learn the importance of small steps, and discover how you can start taking daily steps rooted in aligned action to help you manifest your deepest, most heartfelt dreams.

    The Importance Of Taking Small Steps (For Manifestation)
    Pin this for late! The Importance Of Taking Small Steps (For Manifestation)

    Small Steps

    Have you ever known someone who decided they wanted to lose weight and went all in right away?

    From day one, they’re working out one to two hours every day and cutting their daily calorie intake in half. For the first couple weeks, they might see big results. They lose several pounds the first week, and then a few more the second.

    But then, the drastic leap they’ve made starts to take its toll.

    They begin to backslide, skipping workouts and eating even more than when they began their weight loss journey. Trying to make a big lifestyle change in one massive leap often leaves a person feeling tired, overwhelmed, and anxious.

    And because of this, they often give up, believing that they’re just not cut out for this type of lifestyle change.

    The exact same pattern often happens in manifestation.

    When you learn about manifesting, it feels really exciting at first. You’re excited to create your reality through utilizing the power of your own positive vibration. You dedicate yourself to having positive thoughts all the time, trying to suppress any worry, stress, fear, or anxiety that you feel within. You want things to happen quickly, so you try to take massive leaps and bold jumps forward.

    But after a couple weeks, this starts to take its toll.

    It can be tiring to try to be positive all the time. And it can also be stressful and scary to feel like you always have to make these massive leaps forward – especially when you’re not seeing immediate results.

    Like crash diets, crash manifesting often leaves you feeling worse than you did before you started. And it’s also not healthy for your total well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    Here’s the truth about manifesting: there will be times when you’re required to take big leaps forward. To do the thing you’re afraid to do. To trust your inner knowing, even though it feels kind of scary. You’ll know these moments when they come; you’ll feel it deep within when the time is right to do something that feels really big and life-changing.

    But most of your journey won’t be defined by those really big leaps.

    It’s the small steps you take each day that will make all the difference.

    Why Small Steps Are The Way Forward

    Consider the crash dieter, who tries to do it all at once: work out daily, cut their calories, walk over 10,000 steps a day, embody perfection in an attempt to lose twenty pounds in a month, only to gain it all back the next.

    What if they had taken their journey more slowly? 

    Consider this alternative: they start just by replacing their lunch with something a little healthier and adding in three, thirty-minute workouts a week. Maybe they’ll gradually start to increase their step count. Then, they start swapping out some of their high-calorie foods for lower calorie ones, but they still allow some wiggle room for foods they love. They explore different types of exercises to find the ones they enjoy most. They allow themselves to take their time with this new lifestyle change, and because of this, they actually have fun with it.

    They want to do these things because these new habits feel really good.

    Ironically, by releasing the pressure to be perfect, they actually see more long-term success than the person who goes all in right away in an attempt to be perfect.

    I also like to use marathon training as another helpful comparison. When I trained for my first marathon, I knew I wasn’t just going to wake up on Day 1 and run 26.2 miles. I had to create a training plan. In my training plan, I scheduled short runs throughout the week to keep my endurance up and one weekly long run that would gradually increase in distance. My first long run was 8 miles. The next week, it was 9 miles. Then, 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. And so on. 

    Each day, I followed my training plan and made one small step forward at a time to help me prepare for that big 26.2 mile run. When the marathon came, I was able to run the entire length of the race because of the small steps I’d been taking for months before the actual event.

    So what does this have to do with manifestation?

    Let’s take a look at what the path of manifesting your dreams looks like:

    • First, you set an intention based on the authentic, deeply felt dreams that have been placed in your heart.
    • You communicate this intention to the Universe. Your positive vibrations are one way of communicating this intention, as by vibrating at the frequency of your desires, you express that you’re ready to receive more of this good-feeling thing.
    • The Universe works behind the scenes to set everything in motion. It communicates back to you in the form of signs, messages, and most importantly, your own intuition. Being in the vibration of what you desire allows you to receive these signs and inner nudges with clarity. (In contrast, being in a state of stress, worry, and anger will cause you to miss these signs and feelings.)
    • Then, you take inspired action based on the communication the Universe has given you. This leads you on the path straight to your dreams and desires.

    That is the process of manifestation explained in its most basic form.

    Most of the signs and inner nudges you receive on your path won’t be to do anything really, really big. They’re going to be gentle nudges leading you to take small steps forward. 

    This can be a little frustrating, I know. It’s not glamorous or exciting. Usually, when we want something, we want it now.

    The irony here is that the more we try to force something to happen right now, the more we push it away.

    But when you get into alignment and lean into the natural flow of the universe, releasing your hold on the timeline, things will start moving quicker. The small steps you take may seem inconsequential right now, but they’re going to move you forward so much quicker in the long run than trying to control and force everything to happen at once.

    Small Steps & Aligned Action (My Personal Story)

    To help you visualize what the path of manifestation looks like when you’re taking small steps, I want to tell you a bit more about my personal story. Specifically, I want to focus on what it took to build a successful website.

    I didn’t always know that I wanted to be a blogger. This path was revealed to me only after I started practicing quieting my mind through meditation and mindfulness practices. Like a lot of people, I’d been knee-deep in daily stress and anxiety as I worked in the corporate world. I’d been meditating on and off for years, but once I started consistently meditating day after day, subtle shifts began to happen within and all around me. Creative paths and opportunities opened up for me. I started to see possibilities I didn’t see before.

    As a result, my website was born.

    But the path that led me to having a successful website didn’t happen overnight. In fact, it often felt painfully slow.

    My first month, I had about fifty visitors in total. Most of them were my family. The second month, I had maybe fifty-five. Then, sixty. I was releasing blog posts with no set schedule. I didn’t know what SEO was. (SEO = Search Engine Optimization aka the practices you use to get your website to rank on search engines like Google.)

    I didn’t know who my audience was. I knew absolutely nothing except that I was following the path that felt right to me. 

    So each day, I practiced vibrating at the frequency of success. I’d check my website statistics and pretend there were extra zeroes at the end of the audience metrics. I surrounded my computer monitor with post-its that had affirmations on them, such as “I am a successful writer.” I read them every single day, until finally, I no longer needed them because the affirmation became part of my subconscious mind.

    I didn’t wait for success to come to begin feeling successful. I knew that because this dream was within me, it was already mine. I was success. I was abundance. I was everything I could possibly dream of and more.

    Because I was consistently practicing this high vibration, I was an energetic match for my desires. That meant I was in the vibration to receive.

    And I did.

    Every day, I received gentle nudges guiding me to the next step. These were never things I went looking for; they came to me, one at a time. 

    First, another new blogger I’d met through Instagram sent me an email with tips on how to become successful on Pinterest. And I hadn’t even asked! She’d just thought of me and thought it might be useful. And it was; my Pinterest views and clicks began to skyrocket once I began implementing the tips she’d sent me.

    Then, I stumbled upon a podcast that talked about blogging. I decided to listen to an episode, and it talked about SEO and keyword research. So I began to use the methods I learned about in the podcast. Incorporating these practices into my blogging approach took my viewership from 100 readers a month to tens of thousands of readers every month.

    Another friend shared her strategy on newsletter signups and creating free printables. My newsletter subscribers started to increase by hundreds every single week.

    Then, I was offered a chance to become an affiliate for a wellness company. This led to more affiliate opportunities. 

    And I had originally planned on mostly focusing on meditation, mindfulness, and manifestation in the beginning, but an intuitive hunch told me I should focus more of my articles on chakras. These became my biggest and highest ranking articles my first year. 

    So this was my journey to reaching online success: taking one small step forward at a time based on my inner guidance system and help from the Universe.

    Every time I completed one small step, the next would follow. I never would’ve been able to complete any of it if I tried to do everything all at once. (And it would’ve felt super overwhelming.) 

    The Universe knew exactly what I needed when I needed it, and it provided guidance one small step at a time.

    There are no overnight success stories. Even people who seem to have no problem manifesting whatever they want didn’t start out that way. I certainly didn’t start out that way. And there were so many times in the beginning that I wanted to give up, but an inner voice told me to keep going. To keep trusting. I knew I was on the right path, even though I couldn’t see what was coming up ahead.

    The key shift came when I realized that just because I didn’t experience instant, overnight success didn’t mean I wasn’t manifesting. I realized that these every time I was nudged in a certain direction, I was receiving. And as long as I kept following those nudges, I’d continue to receive. Every single step was a result of aligned action. Every single small step forward brought me closer to my dreams.

    How To Start Taking Small Steps To Manifest Your Dreams

    Each day, you have the opportunity to take steps toward manifesting your dreams.

    The most profound steps are ones that are inspired by your deep inner knowing; they should feel good and right to you, even if some of them may scare you a little. This means taking inspired action based on what your intuition is telling you. Remember, this is a form of receiving. Receive this guidance. Follow it. Let the Universe continue to lead you down your authentic path.

    Know that every small step you take makes a big difference in your overall journey.

    If your small step is simply sending an email, buying a book, or registering for a class, it may not feel like a big thing, but it’s actually a huge step forward in your manifestation journey. Your small step can even be something as simple as writing down a list of goals or creating a vision board. Don’t put pressure on yourself to do “really big” things all the time. If you take one small step each day for the next month, you’ll be 30 steps ahead of where you are today.

    Every morning, ask yourself at least one of these questions:

    • Where is the Universe guiding me next?
    • What feels like the next right step for me?
    • What’s one small step I can do today to lead me toward my dreams?

    You might find it helpful to keep a dedicated notebook just for documenting these next steps (or to include this as a section in your daily journaling practice).

    Now, if nothing comes to you right away, that’s okay. Some days, you may not receive a new “next step” but rather a continuation of a previous step. Other days, your mind may feel a little foggy, or nothing will feel right to you.

    That’s completely okay. This doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you.

    If your mind is feeling a little clouded, don’t try to force something to come forward. Instead, focus on meditation and mindfulness practices. Let it come forward naturally. (It’s kind of like trying to force a cat out of its hiding spot. The more you try to force it, the less likely it will come to you. But when you walk away and focus on other things, eventually, it will come out in its own time.)

    If you’d rather not approach this as a daily practice, you can also approach this on a weekly or monthly basis. At the beginning of a new week or month, ask the Universe for guidance on what your next steps should be. See what comes forward. Write it down so you can’t ignore it.

    Once you’ve written it down, see if you can pick up on any subtle feelings within. Looking at it on the paper in front of you, does it still feel right? Is this the thing you’re meant to do?

    If so, now it’s time to take aligned action. Take that step. Do the thing that feels right deep within.

    What Does A Small Step Look Like?

    A small step is an action you can take that will serve and support your manifestation journey.

    If you don’t meditate but have been receiving signs and inner nudges to start, then your small step can simply be trying a ten-minute mindfulness meditation today.

    A small step can be purchasing a book, researching a specific topic, creating a spreadsheet, buying a product or course, signing up for a free webinar – anything that feels right to you.

    Note that everything I listed above is a seemingly simple thing. Nothing feels too overwhelming. This is what most of your small steps will look like: gentle nudges that feel clear, loving, and expansive.

    There is a next tier, though: steps that will feel a little bigger than buying a book or signing up for a free webinar.

    Let’s say you want to manifest your soulmate. You’re called to create a dating profile. Maybe you create it, but you don’t even make it active yet. Creating that profile is one single step. Making it active is the next step. Responding to a message may be the next step after that. And then, if it feels right to you, going out on a date with someone you’ve clicked with might be the next step.

    That fourth step of going on a date is a little bigger than creating the initial profile. But when you look at each step from an objective perspective, you can see how aligned action and leaning into divine flow has led you to this moment. Small steps are the foundation that lead you to these bigger, more exciting steps.

    And finally, there is a third tier as well: those big leaps we talked about in the introduction.

    One major reason why a person may shy away from their dreams is because they believe their journey consists of just these really big leaps.

    But it’s the small steps that will make up most of your journey. The big leaps will come less often, and they’re usually a result of all the small steps you’ve taken to get to this place.

    For me, one of my biggest leaps was quitting my full-time corporate job to pursue writing. I didn’t make this leap overnight. I didn’t yet fully trust my inner knowing, and it took a few months before I finally made the jump. In this case, my rational brain helped me out. I found it beneficial to ask, “What’s the worst thing that can happen?” Even if it didn’t work out, I knew I could always get a new job. I also knew that even if it didn’t work out, that didn’t mean I had failed. No matter what, I would learn and grow from the process. 

    During your journey, you’ll take a lot of small steps, some slightly bigger steps, and a few giant leaps.

    What these steps all have in common is that they’ll be a result of aligned action.

    Or, in the simplest terms, they’re going to feel right.

    When you’re vibrating at the frequency of your desires, you’ll be in the mode to receive guidance about these next steps. Your vibration is where it all begins. The more the vibration of peace/love/gratitude/success/abundance/joy/freedom (and anything else that feels good to you) becomes your norm, the easier it will be to receive those intuitive nudges leading you to the next step.

    I want to end with this:

    Sometimes, your next step won’t make sense to anyone but you. Other people will have no idea why it’s so important to you to read that book or sign up for that webinar or research a specific topic that you suddenly can’t stop thinking about.

    And that’s okay.

    It doesn’t matter if they understand.

    What matters is that it feels right to you.

    Manifestation Journal Template Components

    Scripting

    The first page of the manifestation journal template is entirely dedicated to 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. For instance, let’s say you want to manifest your dream job. In your script, you could write about a day in this dream job as if you already have it right now. You might also write as your future self, looking back on the first day you got this job and what an amazing experience it was. Past or present tense are good; just don’t write in future tense. As you write, it’s not “One day, I will have this job.” It’s, “I am so happy and grateful to have this job right now!”

    If you don’t have time to write an entire script, that’s totally fine. You can skip this page and go straight to the second page if you’d like. See if you can incorporate scripting into your journaling practice on days you have an extra 10 to 15 minutes to spare.

    And if you want to learn more about scripting, plus get a free scripting template, check out this article. And don’t forget to check out the digital manifestation journal in my online shop, which includes 30 unique scripting prompts to help you manifest your deepest and most heartfelt dreams. (Plus, you can type directly into the PDF document!)

    Gratitude

    If you want to live the life of your dreams, express gratitude for the life you have right now. When you express sincere appreciation for all that you have, you vibrate at the frequency of love and abundance. Instead of focusing on lack and scarcity, you’re viewing your life from a perspective of wealth and prosperity. This opens you up to receiving even more incredible people, resources, things, and experiences to be grateful for. You might think of it like this: every time you express gratitude for something you have, you’re telling the Universe, “More of this please.” So when you express thankfulness for the love you already have in your life, you’re saying, “More love please.” Gratitude and love are the highest vibrations, and by expressing sincere gratitude each day, you’re opening yourself up to receiving more than you can ever dream of.

    Your manifestation journal template includes space to express daily gratitude and appreciation. In your journal, write down one to three things you feel grateful for each day. As you write down these things, be sure to truly feel the full depth of your gratitude within every cell of your being.

    Positive Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are encouraging, uplifting statements designed to boost your confidence and self-belief. The key to using affirmations is to know that the affirmation doesn’t actually start with the words you’re affirming; it starts with the feeling you possess deep within. So when you say, “I am worthy,” it’s not simply about saying that you’re worthy; it’s about believing you’re worthy and owning every aspect of your worthiness.

    In your journal, write down one to three uplifting affirmations that align with the positive emotions of what you want to manifest. For instance, if you want to manifest success, write down affirmations about how you’re already successful and how you’re absolutely worthy of infinite success. Feel these words deep within. If you need help with coming up with affirmations that feel good to you, I have thousands of affirmations throughout this site that you can explore here.

    And here are some manifestation and Law of Attraction affirmations to help you get started:

    One Small Step I Will Take Today

    Each day, you have the opportunity to take steps toward manifesting your dreams. The most profound steps are ones that are inspired by your deep inner knowing; they should feel good and right to you, even if some of them may scare you a little. This means taking inspired action based on what your intuition is telling you.

    Remember that every small step you take makes a big difference in your overall journey.

    If your small step is simply sending an email, buying a book, or registering for a class, it may not feel like a big thing, but it’s actually a huge step forward in your manifestation journey. Your small step can even be something as simple as writing down a list of goals or creating a vision board. Don’t put pressure on yourself to do “really big” things all the time. Remember that if you take one small step each day for the next month, you’ll be 30 steps ahead of where you are today.

    In your manifestation journal template, you’ll find space to write down one small step you’ll take to manifest your dreams. Write down this small step with courage, clarity, and confidence. (And also remember, when you’re unsure where to go next, sometimes the best step is to pause, sink into silence, and surrender. Allow the Universe to give you what you need.)

    How Will I Align With My Highest Self Today?

    Your highest self is the part of you that is untouched by external circumstances. This is the real and true you: the part of you that is eternal and infinite. This part of you is also free of fears, worries, and limiting beliefs. When you step back and close your eyes to imagine your highest self, who do you see? How does your highest self look? How do they talk to other people? How do they interact with the world? Do they choose faith over fear? Do they believe they are worthy and deserving of manifesting their dreams?

    Each day, you have the opportunity to align with your highest self. Here are some examples of how you might do this:

    • Meet your highest self in meditation
    • Embody your highest self in how you interact with friends and strangers throughout the day
    • Set a morning routine that aligns with how your highest self would start the day
    • Recite positive affirmations that align with how your highest self would think and feel
    • Practice being in the present moment, as your highest self would be (as opposed to worrying about the past or future)
    • Give love and compassion freely, as your highest self would.

    Other Notes

    Here, you have the opportunity to write down anything else that feels right to you today. You might set a daily intention, write down one small thing you’ll manifest today (i.e. you might manifest a joyful moment or a good conversation with a friend), or write about your daily miracles. Whatever you write here, just make sure it feels good and aligns with your desired manifestations.

    What Is Manifestation?

    At its foundation, manifestation is creation. Throughout your life, you’ve been creating your reality through your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. When you step back and look at your life, you’ll find that your outer world often reflects your inner world. If you feel truly peaceful and happy within, you’ll discover more peace and joy outside of you. In contrast, if your inner world feels chaotic and overwhelming, your external world will also feel stressful and disorderly as a result.

    This is where conscious manifestation comes in. Conscious manifestation is the practice of visualizing your dreams and desires and vibrating at the frequency of your desires as if they’ve already come true. This means you’re intentionally creating a beautiful inner world so that it spills into your outer world and creates something extraordinary outside of you.

    So how do you begin manifesting your dreams? One of the first steps is to learn how to manifest on paper so you can set intentions, lift your vibration, and align with your deepest and most heartfelt desires. By writing down your dreams and desires, you turn them from an abstract concept in your mind into a tangible thing you can practically see, hear, and touch. And the best part? It’s not only easy to do, but it’s actually a lot of fun.

    Below, learn how to manifest on paper in five easy steps. Plus, get bonus steps and more resources to help you manifest your dreams and desires. And to help you develop a long-term manifestation practice that really works, be sure to check out the Dreams, Goals & Manifestation Printables, a digital resource completely dedicated to helping you manifest your dream life. With these printables, you’ll find multiple calendars, worksheet pages, goal-setting tools, and manifestation exercises that you can use over and over again, not just month after month but year after year

    How To Manifest On Paper

    Step 1: Script Your Dream Life

    Arguably the most powerful method for manifesting on paper is the act of 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 kind of like writing a journal entry, except instead of writing about your current life, you write about the life you want to live as if you’re already living it.

    So if you want to manifest love, you might write about how you’re living with the love of your life in your dream home. When you do this, you’ll only write in past or present tense. If you’re writing in past tense, you might recount the day you met your partner. You could also write as though it’s the end of the day, and you’ve just had your first date with the perfect person. If you write in the present tense, you could write about what a typical day looks like with the love of your life. Truly, the possibilities are endless.

    The key to making scripting work is to feel all the positive emotions of having your desires right now in this present moment. So if you’re writing about how happy you are to spend your life with this perfect person, allow yourself to feel truly joyful and grateful for all that you have. And even more, give yourself permission to feel loved, cherished, and adored by this perfect person. Insert gratitude throughout your script, and end it by thanking the Universe for delivering to you all your deepest dreams and desires.

    To learn more about scripting, I’ve added links below that will provide you with examples, suggested sentence starters, and even a free PDF template to help you get started. And if you want to get started with scripting today, be sure to check out 30 Perfect Days, a digital manifestation journal available in my online shop. Each day, you’ll receive a unique scripting prompt that will help you to live as if you already have your dreams and desires right now. Additionally, you’ll find space for daily gratitude, acknowledging the miracles that appear in your everyday world, uplifting affirmations, and more. Click here to learn more!

    Step 2: Use The Pillow Method For Manifestation

    After you’ve completed Step 1, take the script you’ve written and place it under your pillow. Before you go to bed, visualize your desired manifestation in your mind’s eye. Imagine having this desire right now, feeling all the positive emotions of your dreams coming true. Let this be the last thing you think about before falling asleep, allowing it to sink into your subconscious brain. Continue this practice for about 7 to 10 days, or until it feels right to remove it.

    Step 3: Keep A Daily Gratitude Log

    There is no “secret” to making your manifestations come faster, but the closest thing to it is gratitude. Gratitude is the practice of acknowledging the daily gifts and miracles you receive with sincere appreciation. These miracles don’t have to be really big things. Even something like a really tasty cup of coffee or a beautiful morning sky can be something you show true thankfulness for each day. And the fact that you get to wake up to a brand new day with your breath flowing in and out of your lungs? That, too, is a miracle.

    As you wait for your manifestations to appear in your reality, don’t sit around obsessing over when and how it’s going to come. Instead, live your life with joy and true gratitude in your heart. Express appreciation for all that you have and all that’s coming. Gratitude and love are the highest vibrations, and the quickest way to receive what you desire is to express thankfulness for what you already have.

    One method for expressing gratitude is by writing one to three things you’re grateful for every single day. As you write down your gratitude list, allow the feeling of sincere appreciation to spread through your body.

    Step 4: Write Down Your Signs & Synchronicities

    Every single day, you’re receiving signs from the Universe. Sometimes, the signs are really obvious (like a book falling off a shelf right in front of you), and sometimes, they’re a little more subtle (like your own intuition leading you in a certain direction). As you begin your manifesting journey, you’ll also receive signs and synchronicities. Consider these signs to be messages from the Universe, letting you know your manifestation is on its way. The signs you receive might come in the form of numbers and number patterns, coins, objects, symbols, or dreams. Start noticing and writing down the signs you discover in your daily life. This will keep you feeling motivated and encouraged, and it will also help you to relax a little more; you’ll know that you haven’t been forgotten and that the Universe is taking care of you.

    To learn how to know if a sign is from the Universe, what to do after you receive a sign, and how to ask for a sign, you can check out my article on receiving messages from the Universe here. And for even deeper insight on how to ask the Universe for a sign, check out this article.

    Step 5: Use Manifesting Oil To Amplify Your Manifestations

    My favorite way to amplify my manifestation practice is to use manifesting oil on everything I write down. Manifesting oil is a blend of essential oils, herbs, and other natural sources that are specifically created to help you manifest your desires. I’ve linked to my personal favorites below. To use manifesting oil, simply add a drop of oil to your scripts, journal pages, and anything else you write down. I especially like to use it when I’m doing the pillow method (by adding the oil to the page and then placing the paper under my pillow).

    Bonus Methods For Manifesting On Paper

    Manifestation Affirmations

    In addition to the practices above, use manifestation affirmations daily to amplify your intentions. You can use a blend of standard mindset affirmations, such as I am worthy, as well as future pacing affirmations, such as I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month. Write down your affirmations and use a bit of manifesting oil on your paper. Don’t forget to truly feel what you’re affirming within. (For instance, if you affirm that you’re a successful entrepreneur, don’t just say it; feel it!)

    Here are some articles to help you with affirmations for manifestation:

    55×5 Manifestation Method

    To use the 55×5 Manifestation Method, choose an affirmation, then write down your chosen affirmation 55 times in a row for 5 days straight. For this practice, instead of using a mindset affirmation, use an affirmation like what I wrote above: “I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.” If this is your chosen affirmation, you’d write those exact words 55 times in a row on Day 1, then another 55 times in a row on Day 2, and then repeat on Days 3, 4, and 5. Like with all affirmations, make sure you truly feel the words within as you write them down.

    If you want to get started on this practice today, I’ve created a simple 55×5 Manifestation Worksheet you can either print out or type into directly on your phone, tablet, or computer. (If you have some manifesting oil, you might prefer to print it out so you can use the oil on the pages.)

    369 Method

    In the 369 Method, you choose an affirmation and write it down 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times in the evening. Do this for 21 days in a row. As you write it down, maintain high vibrations and make sure to be consistent. I also find it helpful to say my affirmation aloud throughout the day.
