    Living With Anxiety

    Does it feel like anxiety is a constant, unrelenting part of your life? Are you so used to co-existing with its inevitable presence that it seems inconceivable to even imagine what life without anxiety would feel like?

    I know how it feels to live each day with deep-seated, enduring anxiety. Anxiety feels different for everyone. For me, it feels like an all-consuming heat has gripped my chest, squeezing my heart and making everything inside feel tight and constricted.

    This overwhelming feeling makes it impossible to think about anything else.

    Still, as bad as my anxiety often gets, I know others experience symptoms that are much more debilitating. For some, anxiety makes it feel difficult to even get out of bed in the morning. For others, anxiety affects their immune system and leaves them feeling sick and depleted.

    Whether your anxiety comes in short bursts, long waves, or somewhere in-between, there are resources and tools that can help you manage the stress and overwhelm of living with anxiety.

    For many, crystals and gemstones can be powerful tools for healing as they go beyond simply treating the physical ailments you experience; rather, they dig deep, moving past the symptoms and finding the true source of your anxiety.

    By gently discovering the root cause of your inner battle, crystals help to spiritually heal your entire body, mind, and spirit.

    Crystals won’t just make you feel not anxious. When your brain feels heavy, overwhelmed, and/or stressed, crystals can lift this heavy fog from your mind so you can see the path ahead with calm and clarity.

    And once you can see things clearly, you gain more courage and confidence to walk forward in your journey. Fear of the unknown suddenly becomes less scary, because you have complete faith and trust that everything happens for your highest good. In the unknown, you see potential and possibilities.

    In different ways, all of the crystals and stones for anxiety below will provide you with this clarity as they lift the hold that anxiety may have on you. Some of the crystals help you to cultivate peace. Some relieve tension. Others protect you from the negative energy of external forces. And still, others have the power to transform negative emotions into positive ones.

    But what they all have in common is that they will all work to serve your ultimate well-being and support your highest good.

    Below are nine of the best crystals and stones for anxiety, as well as a guide on how to cleanse, program, and use your crystals to help you achieve a peaceful, calm, and harmonious lifestyle.

    And to help you better understand the role anxiety plays in your life, don’t miss these 30 gentle and calming journal prompts designed to help you gently probe your anxiety with love, compassion, and kindness.

    How To Cleanse Your Crystals

    When you first purchase a new crystal, it’s important to cleanse the crystal before you use it, even if you only intend to have it sit in one spot. Crystals hold energy inside them, and when you first receive them, it’s almost a sure thing that they’ll be holding some kind of energy within from past owners and experiences.

    Even if you’re the first official owner of this crystal, it still traveled from source to seller to you. It inherently holds energy just from its travels and all the hands it has passed through.

    On top of cleansing your crystals when you first get them, it’s a good habit to cleanse them regularly. Even if you’ve cleansed a new crystal once, it will continue to receive and store energy with time. Eventually, if there’s too much energy stored inside it, it will no longer work effectively. Try to cleanse your crystals at least once a month using any of the methods below.

    Water: If possible, try to use clean, natural water like a creek, river, or stream. Hold your stone beneath the surface and rinse it within the running water. If there’s no natural water nearby, it’s okay to use a faucet. Either way, just be sure to first do a quick Google search or consult a book on crystals to make sure water is safe for your stone. You don’t want to use this method for soft stones like Selenite.

    Use Selenite or Clear Quartz: Selenite and Clear Quartz are both beautiful crystals that typically have a whitish, clear surface. These crystals are unique in that they are able to cleanse and purify other crystals. Lay your crystal on a piece of Selenite or Clear Quartz for at least 24 hours. If you can’t place your crystal on top, you can also place them side-by-side with their edges touching.

    Nature: I like to compare crystals to people when it comes to holding energy. When we store old or negative energy within, one of the most powerful ways to balance our own energy is to spend time in nature. Crystals are the same. Lay your crystals out in nature and let them experience the healing presence of the earth for a day. You can place crystals on the soil, on a tree branch, on a potted plant, among the blades of grass, in your garden, or anywhere else outside where you feel a sense of peace and harmony.

    Sun: Many crystals love the bright energy and light of the sun. Just make sure first that this is safe for your stone. Some stones, like Amethyst, shouldn’t be placed directly in the sun for too long.

    Moon: You can place your crystals outside overnight anytime, but this is especially powerful during the Full Moon when the moonlight is brightest.

    How To Program Crystals & Gemstones

    Programming your crystals is the act of setting an intention so that you and your crystal are in alignment. When using crystals to help heal anxiety and restore balance within, your intention will likely have something to do with walking forward on your path with a sense of calm, alignment, harmony, and ease.

    Here are a few examples of intentions that you might set:

    • My energy is perfectly aligned and balanced. I feel calm, confident, and at ease.
    • I am protected from negative energy. All of the energy that flows within and around me supports my highest good and total well-being.
    • I cultivate power, courage, and strength within to confidently face all situations.

    Your intention might also be more specific if your anxiety arises during certain situations, such as at work or during social events.

    Programming your crystals comes after cleansing your crystals. When your crystal has been properly cleansed, find a quiet spot where you can be undisturbed for at least 10 to 15 minutes. If you have a sacred space or a meditation table, this is the perfect time to use this space. Feel free to light some candles or cleanse your space before you begin.

    Hold your crystal within your hands and state your intention out loud. Lift your crystal to your mouth and gently breathe on it. As you breathe, internally state your intention. Ideally, you will be in a high-vibrational state while doing this. Repeat this for several minutes, or until you feel ready to move to the next step.

    You can lower your hands now if you wish, keeping your crystal within your palms. Close your eyes (if they aren’t already closed) and visualize your intention coming to life. Visualize the life you imagine for yourself with this intention coming true. See your highest, most authentic self living your most confident life – a life where anxiety doesn’t have a hold over you.

    And as you visualize, allow yourself to truly feel all of the positive emotions associated with your vision.

    Continue your visualization until you feel that the crystal has been programmed with your intention. (This feeling will be a deep inner knowing. It won’t be anything big or flashy. Think of it like a small, gentle nudge within.)

    How To Use Crystals & Stones For Anxiety

    Keep in Your Office/Workspace: Keep your gemstones visible in your office or workspace, or if you have a job that requires you to walk around, see if you can keep it in your pocket or somewhere accessible to you. Blue Lace Agate is the perfect crystal to keep with you while you work as it calms your mind, soothes your spirit, and helps you to maintain tranquility.

    Meditate with Crystals: Find a quiet, safe spot and hold your crystal(s) as you meditate. You can also place the stones over their corresponding energy center while laying down. I list the chakras (energy centers) for each stone below. To learn more about chakras, check out my introduction to your body’s energy centers here.

    Wear Crystals as Jewelry: Rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are a beautiful way to keep your crystals with you at all times. By wearing your gemstones as jewelry, your chosen stones can protect your energy, calm your mind, and soothe your spirit throughout the day. Learn more about protection jewelry here.

    Recite Affirmations: In a safe space, recite positive affirmations while holding your crystals. If you’re at work, a social gathering, or another public place, see if you can find space to silently repeat affirmations to yourself as you hold your crystals. (Or if you’re wearing them as jewelry, focus your attention on the power of their presence). Here are 65 positive affirmations for anxiety to help you get started.

    Create a Sacred Space: Crystals, candles, essential oils, pillows, books, plants . . . any and all of these components can be used to create a sacred space for yourself. Whatever you want to include, make your sacred space your own. Allow it to be a safe place filled with positive, healing energy. You can fill your sacred space with any and all the crystals listed below, along with other beautiful gemstones you feel called to. Allow this to be a place where you can meditate, journal, or simply sit and hold your crystals, restoring harmony and peace within.

    9 Best Crystals And Stones For Anxiety


    Amethyst is a beautiful crystal to promote peace and calm within. If you often come home from work feeling scattered and overwhelmed, allow Amethyst to calm your mind and soothe your spirit. And if tranquility and stillness is what you seek, Amethyst is the perfect stone to bring into your life.

    Amethyst is a stone of balance, so if external forces disrupt your inner peace and leave you feeling like you’re going in a million different directions, Amethyst will gently guide you back to a place of harmony within. It also decreases stress and tension and even helps you get a more restful night’s sleep.

    By promoting a sense of calm within, Amethyst will clear out the negativity in your mind so you can find clarity on your journey. With clarity, your creativity and courage are able to shine, and you can walk forward on your path with a sense of purpose and inner knowing.

    Chakras: Third Eye, Crown


    If anxiety is a constant companion in your life, let Apophyllite take its place as it soothes and heals your mind, body, and spirit. As one of the most powerful stones for healing anxiety, Apophyllite is known for being a stone of light, and it infuses its light into your spirit, relieving your tension and unease. You might think of Apophyllite as a beautiful, calming presence that doesn’t just relieve your stress and worry; it transfers its high-vibrational energy to you and truly lifts your spirits.

    By soothing your worries and calming your mind, Apophyllite will help you to come up with actionable solutions during times of stress. It makes heavy situations feel lighter as it gently guides and supports you to release negative energy and cultivate true joy and happiness within.

    Chakras: Heart, Third Eye, Crown

    Blue Lace Agate

    You know those times when your mind seems to be running at a million miles per hour, and you just can’t seem to slow it down? Blue Lace Agate is just the stone you need to calm your mind, soothe your spirit, and relieve your stress. It’s especially helpful if you have a big presentation or interview coming up as it will help you to relax and stay calm, no matter the situation.

    Known to be a powerful stress relieving stone, Blue Lace Agate is the perfect crystal to keep in your office or cubicle as it helps you remain calm and at ease throughout your work day. Take deep, cleansing breaths and envision that the soothing blue of its surface is a peaceful summer sky or a stunning winter lake, restoring harmony and balance within.

    Chakras: Throat, Heart


    Hematite is the ultimate grounding stone. When you find your mind is spinning in circles or when the world is crashing over you, Hematite will clear the chaos and pull you back to earth.

    Associated with the root chakra, your body’s first energy center, Hematite restores your strong and steady foundation and promotes feelings of ease and security. And as it does this, it also allows you to release stress, worry, and anxiety.

    Additionally, Hematite is a protective stone, so you can wear it as jewelry or keep it with you throughout your day, and it will help you to remain centered and grounded while protecting you from negative energy and toxic vibes. If you’re an empath, this stone is a must-have as it will protect you from taking on the negative energy of others.

    Chakras: Root


    Lepidolite is the gemstone version of your best friend; it listens to your emotions and then gently guides you to a place of healing. When you’ve been stuck in a state of heartbreak, depression, or permanent stress, Lepidolite helps to heal your broken heart and restores your sense of confidence, enthusiasm, joy, and purpose.

    And going one step further, as you’ve discovered a renewed sense of purpose, it helps you to embrace change and step into the next chapter of your life.

    If you’ve been living in a state of worry, stress, chaos, or perpetual sadness, Lepidolite will help you to move forward into the next phase of your life with joy, confidence, and faith. For women, this stone will also help to retain harmony during the most emotional times of your cycle. And for all, it promotes a rejuvenating and restful night’s sleep.

    Chakras: Works with all chakras, especially the upper three (Heart, Third Eye, Crown)


    Like Hematite, Obsidian is also a powerful grounding stone that allows you to realign with your foundation when your mind, body, and spirit aren’t in harmony. And like Lepidolite, Obsidian is also kind of like your best friend, except this is the best friend that you may not always want but that you always need.

    Obsidian tells it like it is and shows you both your positive and negative traits. If you’ve been suppressing negativity, Obsidian carries it to the surface so you can face it head on. However, it’s not going to leave you high and dry to face this negativity alone. Like a true friend, Obsidian will help to clear any negativity and darkness and guide you toward the path of light, love, hope, and faith.

    In addition, Obsidian is also a powerful protective stone. It helps to guard your energy and protects you from negativity and darkness, both externally and within.

    Chakras: Root


    Like Hematite and Obsidian, Onyx is a grounding stone associated with the root chakra. It helps you to relieve stress and restore harmony within your being.

    But what makes Onyx really special is its ability to guide you through fear.

    When facing our fears, we often feel stressed, worried, nervous, and anxious. Onyx absorbs these negative energies and helps you to restore confidence and self-belief. It also helps you to make life choices that support your ultimate well-being and guides you down unknown paths with strength and courage.

    If you’re feeling anxious and worried about the future, Onyx will give you the courage to face your fears and the strength to keep walking forward, no matter what.

    Chakras: Primarily Root; can also work with Solar Plexus, Third Eye, and Crown


    Rhodonite is a beautiful stone associated with the heart chakra that nurtures inner healing and moving past difficult situations. This is one that you want to have in your spiritual first aid kit as it provides emotional support when you’re in the midst of painful situations.

    When dealing with anxiety-producing situations, Rhodonite will help you to remain centered and calm your nerves. Rhodonite also helps to open your heart and empowers your highest self to live your most joyful, peaceful, loving life. This stone clears negativity and lifts your vibrations, no matter what you’re currently going through.

    Chakras: Heart

    Smoky Quartz

    Smoky Quartz is a powerful stone to help you release negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, stress, and unease. When you’re in the midst of an overwhelming or anxious situation, feel the calming effects of this stone almost instantly by stepping back, taking a deep breath, and holding your stone over any areas of your body that feel tense and constricted. A bonus to using Smoky Quartz is that if often complements and amplifies the energy of surrounding stones.

    Smoky Quartz will help you get through the difficult moments of life, provide clarity in uncertain situations, and transform negative emotions into positive emotions. And if anxiety often leaves you feeling overwhelmed, Smoky Quartz will transform overwhelm into insight so that you can effectively understand and work through any problems that may be disrupting your peace.

    Chakras: Root, Solar Plexus; can also work with Crown

    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.

    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.

    Manifestation Journals

    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.

    Positive Affirmations

    A positive affirmation is a present-tense affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    Here are a few examples:

    • I am worthy.
    • I am enough.
    • I am competent, capable, and strong.
    • I am equipped with all the tools I need to succeed.
    • I am true to myself, always.
    • I accept all of myself.
    • Who I am, exactly as I am, is truly beautiful.

    Affirmations are great because there are so many ways you can incorporate them into your morning routine, and they’re especially versatile if you’re pressed for time.

    You can write some of your favorite uplifting affirmations on post-it notes and stick them to your mirror to read as you get ready for your day.

    You can also write them in a bullet journal or on a notepad.

    And if you don’t want to write them down, you can silently repeat them to yourself as you’re eating breakfast.

    And finally, you can even set them up as notifications on your phone to pop up just when you need them in the morning.

    Positive affirmations are the cornerstone of a well-rounded manifestation morning routine, as they’re a quick and easy way to lift your vibrations and align you with your desired emotions without taking any time at all.


    My favorite way to describe visualization is intentional daydreaming. You might also consider it daydreaming on purpose.

    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.

    So why should you include visualization in your morning routine?

    Among other benefits, visualization increases your motivation, helps you to become more mentally resilient, opens your creative mind to previously unseen possibilities, and helps you to vibrate at the frequency of your desires, thus activating the Law of Attraction. (You can read more about the benefits of visualization in this article.)

    If you’re new to visualization practices, one of the best ways to start is by using a guided meditation. You can find some of my favorite guided meditations for manifesting here. I personally use the InsightTimer app for all of my guided meditations. (That’s not an affiliate link. I just truly love this app and recommend it wholeheartedly.)

    You can also spend a few minutes looking at your vision board and immersing yourself in the positive feelings of having your desires today.

    For instance, if a brand new Tesla is on your list, imagine yourself driving that Tesla. Feel the smooth steering wheel beneath your fingers. Imagine how good it’ll feel when you’re driving that car on the freeway. See if you can spend at least 30 to 60 seconds focusing on each item on your board.


    Gratitude is another practice that can take as much or as little time as you want.

    Many people set the intention to focus on gratitude as soon as they wake up in the morning:

    “Thank you for another new day and for the air in my lungs. Thank you for my beating heart. For my safe home. For a restful night’s sleep. Thank you for all the love that’s within and all around me.”

    This is an incredibly powerful practice. How many times have you woken up and immediately started clicking through mental to-do lists, feeling stressed and anxious about all that needs to get done?

    Gratitude is a way to shift that narrative.

    It’s about being in the present moment rather than living in the past or worrying about the future.

    And even more, it’s about focusing on all that you have rather than seeing big gaping holes of lack everywhere you look.

    Here are a few ways you can incorporate gratitude into your morning routine:

    • Create gratitude lists. Every morning, list 1 to 3 things you feel grateful for that day. If you want, you can get a special notebook for this purpose; you can also used lined paper, notecards, sticky notes, or whatever you have lying around.
    • Have a dedicated Gratitude Box. Each morning, write one thing you’re grateful for on a slip of paper. Insert the slip into a small box or mason jar. Then, at the end of a year, remove the 365 pieces of paper and read through them, feeling that wave of appreciation wash over you all over again.
    • Keep a gratitude journal. You can write down several things you’re grateful for each morning, or you can focus on one thing and write all the aspects of that thing that you especially appreciate.
    • Simply acknowledge your gratitude. You don’t necessarily have to write it down. As you’re showering, eating breakfast, or commuting to work, you can think about all the things in your life that you feel thankful for.

    You can learn about the benefits of gratitude and why it’s an especially powerful practice when it comes to the Law of Attraction in this article.

    Daily Intention Setting

    One of the most profound practices you can do each day to support your manifestations is to set daily intentions.

    Unlike a goal, which is the thing you ultimately want to manifest into your reality, an intention is how you want to be as you work towards your goals.

    For instance, if you want to manifest financial prosperity, you might set the intention to be the embodiment of abundance in your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

    Set a daily intention that feels good to you. And if you find that you’ve strayed from your intention (i.e. you’re not being the embodiment of abundance like you had intended), that’s okay!

    As soon as you have that realization, you can simply choose to return back to your intention and realign with the thoughts, feelings, and overall frequency of your desired manifestation.

    Here are some examples of intentions you can set:

    • Today, I will be present in every moment.
    • I will hold strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.
    • I will be my most authentic self in all moments.
    • As I move through this day, I will choose love over fear.
    • I will accomplish everything I focus on.
    • I will take deep breaths and inhale confidence when I feel anxious or nervous.
    • Today, I will succeed in everything I do.
    • I will accept all opportunities that come my way.
    • I will ask myself in all moments, “How can I serve?”
    • In all moments, I will find things to be grateful for.
    • I will be the highest version of myself.
    • I will spread kindness in my words and actions.


    If you’re ready to skip this section because you don’t think you have time for journaling, don’t leave just yet. You might be surprised by all the journaling tactics you can do in just a few minutes.

    I cover different types of manifestation journaling extensively on this site, so I’ll briefly summarize a few journaling practices and link to each corresponding article below.

    • 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 right now. For instance, if you want to manifest a specific job, you can write as if you’re living a day in that dream job. The key to unlocking the magic of scripting is to truly feel the positive emotions of already having everything you desire. Then, carry these positive feelings with you throughout your day. To learn more about scripting and download a free Law of Attraction scripting template, click here. Estimated Time: 10 to 20 minutes.
    • 55×5 Manifestation Method: To practice the 55×5 Manifestation Method, choose an affirmation, then write down your chosen affirmation 55 times in a row for 5 days straight. For example, if you want to manifest a trip to Hawaii, your affirmation might be, “I am so grateful that I’m going on my dream vacation to Hawaii!” On Day 1, grab a journal or notebook and write this affirmation 55 times in a row. Days 2, 3, 4, and 5 – same thing. And again, allow yourself to feel the positive emotions attached to this affirmation as if it’s already come true. To learn more about the 55×5 Manifestation Method, click here. Estimated Time: 10 to 20 minutes depending on the length of the affirmation.
    • 369 Method: To practice the 369 Method, choose an affirmation just like what you’d use for the 55×5 Manifestation Method. Write down your affirmation 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. You can learn more about the 369 Method here. Estimated Time: 3 to 5 minutes.


    One big plus meditation has going for it? You can actually incorporate almost all of the practices above in a ten-minute meditation.

    You’ll find guided meditations dedicated to gratitude, positive affirmations, visualization, or setting daily intentions.

    And you’ll even find manifestation meditations that include all of these components in one track.

    If you’re first starting out with meditation, I highly recommend using an app to help you get started. Many of these apps have beginner meditations to introduce you to the different concepts, often focused especially on breath work.

    Here are a few of the best ones that you can try out today:

    Finally, before you get started, know that this is not a competition. Nobody gets extra credit for meditating longer or being more still than everyone else. Ten minutes (or even five) is all you need to start a morning meditation practice.

    And please, please know that meditation is not about being perfect.

    My mind wanders all the time when I’m meditating. And that’s okay!

    Meditation teaches us to notice those moments, acknowledge them, and gently allow ourselves to come back to the present moment, over and over again.

    Suggested Morning Routines (Based On Time)

    We all have our non-negotiables when it comes to our morning routine.

    Some of these are for personal hygiene and cleanliness reasons, like showering, brushing teeth, and moisturizing routines. Drying and straightening/curling hair, putting on makeup, and picking out the perfect outfit might be components of your morning routine. And you might also like to sit down and eat a real breakfast before you head out the door.

    Only you know what your non-negotiables are, so factor in the time it takes to complete these tasks as you decide how much time you can realistically dedicate to your morning routine.

    And know that it’s okay to start small.

    If you’re able to wake up ten minutes earlier to add a ten-minute manifesting practice to your day, that’s incredible. Truly. By taking that seemingly small step, you show the universe that you’re committed, focused, and persistent.

    Just the very act of committing to yourself is going to open up so many amazing opportunities and experiences for you. Over time, you may want to add another five minutes or find new ways to maximize your time. You’re in the driver’s seat here, and you get to decide what’s right for you.

    Five Minutes

    • Complete the Morning Routine template below!
    • Or, instead of the template, you can spend your five minutes practicing visualization. Then, as you’re getting ready for the day, you can mentally go through your gratitude list, recite some uplifting positive affirmations, and set an empowering intention for the day.

    Ten Minutes

    • Complete the above Morning Routine template. Then, with any remaining time, do a short visualization practice. You can use your vision board or complete a five-minutes guided meditation. For extra positivity, keep repeating positive affirmations as you get ready for the day.

    Twenty to Thirty Minutes

    • Do a ten to fifteen minute meditation. Then, complete the Morning Routine template. If you have any time remaining, add some extra affirmations or do a one-to-two minute visualization. Keep reciting affirmations and internally focusing on the things you’re grateful for as you shower, eat breakfast, and commute to work.

    Forty Minutes

    • Do a ten-minute meditation. Then, complete twenty minutes of journaling. With the remaining time, complete the Morning Routine template. Keep affirming your worthiness and focusing on all the wonderful things you feel grateful for as you finish getting ready for the morning.

    Fifty to Sixty Minutes

    • Complete thirty minutes of journaling, then a 10 to 20 minute meditation (or vice versa). Use any remaining time to complete the Morning Routine template. Or, if you prefer, you can use a separate notebook to write down your intentions for the day. Keep focusing on gratitude and positive affirmations as you get yourself ready in the morning!

    Why You Should Be Using Crystals

    You are already a powerful manifestor, whether or not you’re consciously aware of it.

    Throughout your life, you’ve been emitting energy out into the world that reflects your inner state.

    You might call this your energetic signature, and this can change from day to day – and even from moment to moment.

    When you feel peaceful and calm, you radiate an overall aura of deep serenity. This energy doesn’t just flow through you; it surrounds your entire being.

    If this is hard to imagine, think about the energy you feel when you’re around specific people. Do you love to be in the company of certain friends, family, or coworkers because of the positive energy you feel when you’re around them?

    And on the other side, are there certain people you avoid because they carry a constant energy of negativity?

    You, too, carry a specific energy signature throughout your day. Manifestation is the art of tuning your own energy to your desired state of being. When you emit an energy of deep inner peace from within, you invite more experiences of peace and serenity in your outside world.

    So while you’ve been manifesting your entire life, conscious manifestation occurs when you become aware of your limitless ability to create your own outcomes, and you intentionally choose your thoughts and feelings to align with the energy of your desires.

    (I won’t go too in depth on the process of manifestation in this article, but if you want to learn more, you can click here to learn more about the Law of Attraction, and here you can read about specific manifestation methods you can use to help you manifest what you truly desire.)

    So how exactly do crystals help you manifest your dreams and desires?

    When you use crystals for manifestation, your chosen stones aren’t simply attracting love, financial abundance, health, and other desired outcomes to you; they’re helping you to cultivate a deep sense of self so that you discover that these things already exist within you.

    You are love. Love is your birthright. So is financial abundance, health, joy, creativity, passion, and all kinds of really good and wonderful things.

    Crystals help you to become the energy of what it is that you want to manifest.

    They restore harmony and balance within you and empower you to live as your highest and most authentic self.

    And when you become the energy you want to manifest, you attract more of this energy to you.

    Become unconditional love. Receive unconditional love.

    Become abundance. Receive abundance.

    By becoming, you’re opening yourself up to receiving.

    And while it’s absolutely possible to walk into a store and feel called toward a certain crystal (always trust the wisdom of your intuition), it helps to have an understanding of the properties and powers that different crystals possess when you’re choosing the right crystal for you.

    Below, you’ll discover 11 powerful crystals that will help you manifest your desires, plus some easy-to-follow practices on how to cleanse, program, and use crystals for manifestation. Feel free to use the links below to skip to the section you want to learn more about!

    How to Cleanse Your Crystals

    Why do we cleanse crystals before using them? Imagine that you’re moving into a “new” old house. Even though the house is new to you, you know that the house has been lived in by several families before you. These families made their own memories in the house, and over the years, they’ve left behind bits and pieces of their energy inside that house.

    Just like you want to clear the energy of the past residents so you can start anew in this house, you want to clear any old energy and past intentions still being held in your crystals.

    Even if you’re the first person to ever own this crystal, it’s likely traveled a long way from its source to the seller to you. Because you don’t know what kind of energy is currently held in your new crystal(s), it’s a best practice to cleanse your crystals before using them.

    Methods to Cleanse Crystals:

    • Sage: Light your sage and immerse the crystal in the smoke for thirty to sixty seconds. Be sure to use a firesafe bowl or abalone shell to catch burning embers and ash. It’s best to do this outside or near an open window for two reasons: A) Safety and B) It allows any negative and old energies to rise in the air and disappear from your space.
    • Water: Rinse your stone under the running water of a creek or stream. If this isn’t possible, you can also use a faucet. Just make sure to do a little research first to make sure it’s safe for your stone. You don’t want to use this method for soft stones like Selenite.
    • Use Selenite or Clear Quartz: Both of these crystals have the ability to cleanse and purify other crystals. Lay your crystal on a piece of Selenite or Clear Quartz for at least twenty-four hours. If you can’t place your crystal on top, it also works to have them side-by-side as long as they’re touching.
    • Nature: When I need to reset and get realigned, I can always restore balance within when I immerse myself in nature. Crystals are the same. Place your crystals outside on the soil, on the branches of a tree, on a potted plant, or anywhere else outdoors where you feel a sense of peace and balance. If possible, try to keep your crystals outside for at least a full day, avoiding dew and prolonged exposure to sunlight.
    • Sun/Moon: Place your crystals outside in the sun or moon for ten to twelve hours (or overnight). This is especially powerful during the Full Moon when the moonlight is brightest. If you’re going to use this method, just make sure it’s safe for your stone. For certain stones, like Amethyst, you want to avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight.

    How to Program Crystals for Manifestation

    The number one most important thing to remember when it comes to programming your crystals for manifestation isn’t the method itself; it’s your intention. There are several ways to program your crystals, and none are inherently better than the others. What matters is your intention during the process.

    It helps to have a powerful sentence or phrase to use when you’re getting ready to program your crystals. For instance, if you want to manifest health, your sentence might be, “I am living my healthiest and most fit life in a body I truly love.” Or if you’re manifesting financial abundance, your intention might be, “I am a successful entrepreneur, and financial prosperity comes easily and effortlessly to me.

    The key is, before you sit down to program your crystals, make sure you really know what it is that you want to manifest.

    Methods to Program Crystals:

    • Visualize: Sit in a quiet, safe place where you won’t be interrupted. Hold your crystal(s) in your hands. In your mind, speak your intention. Then, visualize what this intention looks like. What does financial abundance look like to you? How do you envision romantic love? What do you see when you imagine yourself living your healthiest and most fit life? Sit in silence for a while and see your intentions manifesting in your mind, feeling the emotions of peace, freedom, joy, love, and/or any other positive emotions that arise when you visualize your dream.
    • Breathe into the crystal: Again, find a quiet and safe spot where you won’t be interrupted. Place your stone(s) in your hands and repeat your intention in your head. Bring your stone(s) up to your mouth and breathe into them, repeating your intention in your head. Continue to do this for five to ten minutes, or as long as it takes to feel like your gemstones are fully activated.

    How To Use Crystals To Manifest What You Want

    • Wear crystals as jewelry: Wearing your stones as rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings allows you to easily keep your stone with you at all times. I love rings especially because you can look down at them anytime and be reminded of your limitless power. On top of that, wearing beautiful things helps you to feel good and sparks joy within. And this is not superficial or shallow. Lean into the belief that you are worthy and deserving of wearing beautiful things. If it supports the internal joy that you cultivate within, embrace it.
    • Keep crystals nearby throughout your day: But be intentional with placement. For instance, if you’re using gemstones to manifest financial abundance, place them in your workspace to promote the continual incoming paychecks and flow of money coming in. You can also place them in your wallet or purse to amplify the energy of abundance. Similarly, if you’re manifesting creativity, keep your gemstones in your office or studio where you do most of your creative endeavors.
    • Keep crystals in your pocket: If you don’t have jewelry with your chosen gemstone (or don’t want to wear jewelry), you can keep your crystals in your pocket so they’re still with you throughout the day.

    11 Powerful Crystals for Manifestation

    Crystals to Manifest Financial Abundance

    • Citrine: When it comes to manifesting financial abundance, citrine is an absolute powerhouse. Known as the “Merchant Stone” or “Success Stone,” citrine is associated with wealth, prosperity, and financial success. Additionally, citrine is associated with your solar plexus chakra, which is your energy center for confidence, empowerment, positivity, and high self-esteem. (Read more about the solar plexus chakra here!) So when you combine these powerful properties, you get a crystal that helps you to manifest financial abundance while feeling optimistic, confident, and joyful. This crystal is definitely a must-have when it comes to manifesting prosperity and financial abundance!
    • Pyrite: You might also know this one as “Fool’s Gold,” but there’s nothing foolish about the manifesting power of this stone. Pyrite is associated with wealth, abundance, and success. Additionally, this is a protective stone, shielding you from negative energy and bad vibes. This is the perfect stone to keep in your office as it A) protects the energy of your space and B) raises your energy of abundance at work and/or in your business ventures.

    Crystals to Manifest Love

    • Rose Quartz: Rose Quartz is the ultimate crystal for manifesting love. But how exactly does it do this? When you use Rose Quartz with the intention of manifesting love, you do much more than simply attract love. Rose Quartz works with your heart chakra, opening up this important energy center to help you heal past hurts, restore your belief in love, and open your heart again to love and trust. When you vibrate at the energy of pure love, you naturally attract this same powerful energy to you. And if you already have a partner, Rose Quartz is still a powerful stone to have on hand. As the stone of unconditional love, it helps you to deepen your relationship with your partner and with yourself.
    • Rhodonite: Rhodonite is another beautiful stone that’s associated with the heart chakra. Like Rose Quartz, it helps you to cultivate deep love and compassion within to heal old wounds, cultivate compassion, build confidence, and promote unconditional self-love. If you’re already in a relationship, this stone will help you to clear blockages between you and your partner and open your heart to forgiveness. By truly becoming the essence of unconditional love, you attract the energy of love into your life.

    Crystals to Manifest Friendships

    • Pink Opal: Like the gemstones mentioned above in the Crystals to Manifest Love section, Pink Opal is associated with the heart chakra. (In fact, Rose Quartz and Rhodonite, mentioned above, can also be used to manifest not only romantic love but love-filled friendships as well.) Pink Opal is special because it helps to calm your mind and open your heart, which is especially helpful if you’re shy or withdrawn. Pink Opal will help with healing past pain and cultivating deep inner peace.

    *Citrine, mentioned in the Crystals to Manifest Financial Abundance section, is also a powerful stone for manifesting friendships and an active social life as it promotes joy, optimism, and positivity!

    Crystals to Manifest Health

    • Garnet: Garnet is a powerful stone to promote your total health and wellbeing. When your energy centers are blocked or imbalanced, garnet helps to circulate your energy and balance your chakras. It’s a total powerhouse for cleansing and rejuvenating your mind, body, and spirit.
    • Bloodstone: Bloodstone is known to heal both physical and emotional wounds. On top of that, it’s known to increase circulation and get the energy moving in your body. When you feel completely tired and defeated, Bloodstone will help to heal your mind and body while rejuvenating your spirit.

    Crystals to Manifest Creativity

    • Carnelian: Carnelian is the perfect stone to manifest more creativity into your life. Now, it’s important to remember that you already have access to a limitless abundance of creativity inside of you. However, at times, we may block or obscure that source of creativity, usually by overthinking, worrying, or living it the past or future. And that’s okay! We can always reopen ourselves to infinite creativity, and Carnelian is just the stone to help us get there. Carnelian supports confidence and self-empowerment while helping you tap into your creativity. If you find that your creativity has been blocked, you can use this stone in combination with practices to heal your sacral chakra, the energy center in your body associated with creativity and passion. Learn more about healing your sacral chakra here!

    Amplifiers/Pairing Crystals

    • Aventurine: No matter what you want to manifest, Aventurine is an absolute must-have in your manifestation toolkit. Aventurine is the ultimate pairing stone because it’s associated with abundance and manifestation. But abundance doesn’t just mean financial abundance. Aventurine can help you manifest an abundance of health, love, friendships, creativity, or anything else you desire. It also boosts luck and helps you to stay in a high-vibe, positive state. You can pair Aventurine with Citrine to boost your financial prosperity, or Aventurine with Carnelian to inspire your creativity. There really is no limit to this powerful stone.
    • Goldstone: Goldstone is a beautiful grounding stone that acts like your best friend and protector all in one. It helps you to remain grounded, fills you with energy and optimism, and strengthens your faith when you’re facing obstacles and roadblocks. It will also help you achieve your goals, unlock your potential, and create a beautiful future. Goldstone truly is a unique stone that will serve and guide you as you manifest your future.
    • Jade: Jade is another powerful stone that’s associated with luck and success. It also fills you with courage and reminds you that you are truly limitless. Use Jade with Citrine or Pyrite to attract success, prosperity, and good fortune into your life.

    What Is A Crystal Candle?

    A crystal candle is a candle that’s been infused with crystals and gemstones in order to promote clarity and inner peace as well as to help you manifest your specific desires. Many crystal candles contain multiple smaller gemstones in them, and some will also include a Selenite or Clear Quartz wand for deeper clarity and energy healing.

    When selecting a crystal candle, my best advice is to try not to overthink it. The most important attribute in picking one out is to simply find one that calls to you.

    If you already have some knowledge of the meanings of different crystals, you can search for one that has a meaning that correlates with your specific desires. For instance, many crystal candles include Citrine, which is tied to joy, abundance, and prosperity. Rose Quartz is another popular choice, as it’s connected to your heart chakra and known to help open your heart to let more love into your life.

    But if you don’t want to worry too much about the specific meanings of the crystals, that’s completely okay, too. Let your intuition guide you to the right candle for you. This can be a fun practice, as often, your intuition knows what you need even before your conscious mind does.

    One of the best aspects of a crystal candle is that once you’ve burned the candle completely, you can repurpose the crystals and gemstones and continue to use them around the house or as jewelry. This makes it a meaningful and unique gift option for friends and loved ones. (And it’s also a great item to keep in your personal self-care toolkit as well.)

    Below, get tips on how to use crystal candles, plus get links to beautiful candles (and gift sets) infused with crystals, essential oils, herbs, and other natural products that you can purchase today.

    How To Use Crystal Candles

    The simplest way to use crystal candles is to simply light a candle and keep it going in the background while you’re at home. You can also use them while you’re taking a bath, reading, working – truly, the options are endless.

    If you’re looking to connect deeper with your innermost self, you can use a crystal candle while journaling. Find a candle that contains crystals that correlate with the part of yourself that you want to connect with or heal. For instance, you can choose Rose Quartz to open your heart chakra or Amethyst for connecting with your inner wisdom and intuition. Set an intention before you journal for what you want to accomplish during this journaling session. Then, light your candle and let the words flow.

    Finally, you can also use a crystal candle in a dedicated manifestation ritual.

    To begin, find a quiet spot where you can meditate without interruptions or distractions. Light the crystal candle of your choice before you begin meditating. Set an intention for something specific that you want to manifest into your life. Once you begin your meditation, start visualizing every detail of how it will look and feel when your intention becomes real.

    For instance, if you want to manifest love, visualize what your life will look like when you meet the love of your life. And even more, allow yourself to feel the positive emotions of having your soulmate in your life today.

    The Mindful Collective Healing Crystal Candle

    The healing crystal candle by the Mindful Collective gets my vote for one of the prettiest candles on this list. This candle includes Rose Quartz for deeper self-love and compassion, Citrine for joy and prosperity, and Clear Quartz for clarity and energy healing. With its lovely lavender and vanilla notes, this is the perfect candle to use in meditation, during a bath, or while scripting your dream life.

    Picki Nicki Crystal Sage Candles

    Picki Nicki’s line of crystal sage candles are perfect for anyone who prioritizes eco-friendly products, as it’s made with eco-friendly soy wax and topped with sustainably harvested white sage. My favorite is the White Sage Candle with Citrine and Clear Quartz crystals, which combine to provide you with the light and energy to manifest your deepest, most heartfelt dreams. And the “You Are Enough” card that comes with each candle makes this the perfect gift to yourself or someone you love.

    My Lumina Self-Love Aromatherapy Candle

    If you’re looking to go deeper within, connect to your innermost self, and cultivate unconditional self-love, My Lumina’s Self-Love Aromatherapy Candle is the perfect choice for you. Infused with Rose Quartz, which is connected to your heart chakra, this candle is for anyone who wants to connect deeper to love – both for yourself and for the world around you. And with a lovely sweet pea scent that fills a room, this beautiful candle provides a calming atmosphere for journaling, meditating, or taking a luxurious bubble bath.

    ORCHID AURA Healing Crystal Candles

    If you’re looking for a crystal candle set for yourself or a loved one, ORCHID AURA’s Healing Crystal Candle Set is the perfect option. This beautifully packaged set of three candles features three of my favorite crystals: Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz. Each candle has a unique scent and is made with 100% pure soy wax with a lead-free cotton wick. If you’re scent-sensitive, the aroma of these candles is a bit subtler than some of the others, so they’re not too overwhelming. (Note that these candles are a bit on the smaller side at 2.75 inches tall.)

    Chic & Raw Heart Chakra Crystal Candle

    Chic & Raw’s beautiful Heart Chakra Crystal Candle contains two genuine Madagascan Rose Quartz gems inside, designed to gently heal and open the heart chakra to bring joy and love into your life. Not only is this one of the prettiest candles on this list, but it’s eco-friendly, too. Chic & Raw uses organic soy wax and natural essential oils, and their crystals are from natural and sustainable sources. Made with ginger and white tea essential oils, this is also a great alternative if you’re looking for something outside of the standard vanilla or lavender scents.

    Hemlock Park Crystal Candles

    Want something different than Rose Quartz, Citrine, and Amethyst? Hemlock Park offers beautiful candles that include crystals and gemstones you don’t typically see in crystal candles. This Lapis Lazuli Sea Salt Orchid candle is one of my favorites, as Lapis Lazuli is a stone of enlightenment, wisdom, and truth. I also love that Hemlock Park candles are naturally made with organic ingredients, and each candle comes with a pair of bamboo tongs to remove the crystal once the candle has been completely burned. You can find more unique Hemlock Park crystal candles here.

    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.)

Hayley’s voice and words are pure magic. This is another one you’ll want to save and play on repeat.

    Achieve Your Greatest Desires

    Vanessa Michele’s Achieve Your Greatest Desires is another powerful manifestation meditation that takes you on a journey of envisioning your ideal life.

She then helps you to notice your current vibration and gently guides you to raise your vibration through visualizing your deepest dreams and desires surrounding you right now. Vanessa’s calm guidance will leave you feeling grounded, centered, and ready to create the beautiful, abundant life of your dreams.


    If you’re feeling uncertain about your ability to manifest the life you want, Annemaree Rowley’s Believe is the perfect meditation to help you realign with your true power.

Through her calm yet strong guidance, Annemaree gently guides you to a place of deep trust, knowing, and belief in your power and your path.

    Manifest An Abundant Life

    Amanda Sellers’ Manifest An Abundant Life is another profound guided meditation that uses the power of visualization to help you vibrate at the frequency of having your desires right now. What I love about this meditation is that Amanda begins by guiding you to harness the power of your breath to ground you in this moment. She then reminds you that the first step in manifesting is being grateful for all that you already have. Through gratitude, visualization, and positive vibrations, this guided meditation for manifesting an abundant life will help you walk into your day feeling inspired and empowered.

    Live Your Desire Now

    Lucy Love’s Live Your Desire Now is all about knowing what you want and focusing your energy on the presence of it as if it’s already yours – the perfect recipe for manifestation. Lucy gently guides you from living externally to living internally, focusing on your own inner world. In a calm and relaxed space, you’re called to think about something specific that you authentically desire and begin imagining what it would look and feel like to have your desire today. This short and sweet track is the perfect meditation for living your desired manifestation today.

    New Moon Meditation

    This one’s a little different, as it is specifically created for manifesting with the energy of the New Moon. In her New Moon Meditation, Camilla Sacre-Dallerup guides you through the process of setting intentions that align with what you truly want in life. I especially love the calming visualization experience she takes you on, as you connect with the energy of the New Moon and the new beginnings it represents. This is a quiet, soft, gentle guided meditation that helps you to focus on what truly matters in life – what you want to give your attention to, what you want more of, what’s worth giving your energy to – and release all the rest.

    Manifest Love – Creative Visualization

    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. Sharon gently reminds you that the key to manifesting the love you desire isn’t outside of you; it’s within. I love all the wisdom Sharon shares, especially the gentle reminder that we must take intuitive action to manifest what we truly want in life. Sharon takes you on a powerful visualization journey where you see yourself connected to and wrapped in love at all times. By vibrating at the frequency of unconditional love, you invite even more love to come into your life – thus becoming a magnet for everything you desire.

    One of your greatest powers is your ability to let go of the need to receive external validation and instead find everything you’re looking for inside of you in this present moment.

    The Power Of I AM

    When you begin using affirmations, one of the first things you’ll hear is to always speak in the present tense.

    When you say, “I am worthy,” you ground yourself in this present moment. It isn’t, “I will be worthy.” Or, “I hope to be worthy.”

    This type of statement is so small. Just three words. Four syllables. Nine letters.

    But in those three words, you state that you are worthy right now, just as you are. You don’t need to become worthy. You don’t need to change yourself to be worthy. And you absolutely don’t have to earn your worthiness.

    You get to own your inherent worthiness in this moment without needing to change a thing. And by owning your worthiness, you own your immense power to choose how you feel in any moment.

    And you also realize that you can have anything when you know that what you’re seeking is already inside you.

    It all begins with two tiny but monumentally powerful words:

    I AM.

    Using daily affirmations may feel uncomfortable at first, especially if you’re used to criticizing yourself in the privacy of your own mind. You’ll have to keep reminding yourself to repeat your empowering affirmations and feel into the positive vibrations of these powerful words.

    In time, though, these words will become woven into the very fabric of your being. They’ll be an inextricable part of who you are:

    Worthy. Abundant. Loved. Powerful. Whole. And always, always enough.

    Below, you’ll find tips for using and getting the most out of your I AM affirmations. Then, you’ll find 55 profound I AM affirmations for love, success, abundance, and more. These affirmations are designed to help you recognize your power in this present moment and walk forward in your journey knowing you already have what it takes to live the life you desire.

    You just have to own the incredible power that already exists inside of you.

    Tips For Using I AM Affirmations

    • Don’t just say the words; feel them. This is what makes an affirmation so powerful. If you can say an affirmation such as, “I am abundant,” and truly feel abundant inside every cell of your being, then you’re no longer looking for external sources to validate your worth. Instead, you cultivate what you’re looking for inside of you.
    • Don’t force it if it really doesn’t resonate. Forcing yourself to say an affirmation that actually makes you feel worse is counterproductive to the positive mindset you’re trying to cultivate. Instead, choose affirmations that genuinely feel good to you.
    • And on that note, you can also use what I call the Ladder Method. Let’s say you want to use the affirmation, “I am beautiful and healthy.” Maybe you have a hard time repeating this. You try to force it, but sometimes, this leaves you feeling worse than before. Instead, allow yourself to step back and find an affirmation that feels a little better to you. You might say, “I am open to discovering the ways that I am beautiful and healthy.” You can also say, “I am willing to love my body and see its inherent beauty.” See if you can incorporate these affirmations into your daily practice, slowly climbing the ladder until you get to that place where you can say, “I am beautiful and healthy.”
    • And finally, make affirmations a daily part of your routine. If it’s hard to remember at first, you can set phone notifications to go off throughout the day with powerful affirmations written on them. You can also print out affirmations or write them on post-it notes and stick them around your home and office. What I’ve found is that eventually, I don’t need these reminders anymore because the affirmation becomes so ingrained within me. After a while, it’ll become second nature to easily affirm your worthiness.

    What Is The Law Of Attraction? (A Complete Guide)

    In this article, learn what the Law of Attraction is and how it affects your daily life. Plus, learn how to use the Law of Attraction to manifest your future, and discover how the Law of Attraction is linked to the 12 Laws of the Universe.

    What Is The Law Of Attraction? (A Complete Guide)

    What Is The Law Of Attraction?

    The Law of Attraction is one of the 12 spiritual laws of the universe. While each of these universal laws is inextricably linked with one another, the Law of Attraction is arguably the most well-known in both popular culture and in the spiritual community.

    So what exactly makes the Law of Attraction so special?

    To answer this, we first need to understand what the Law of Attraction is and how it affects our daily lives.

    The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like; the vibrations, beliefs, and emotions we put out into the world are what we receive in our lived experiences.

    In the most basic sense, this is how it works:

    If you approach your daily life emitting feelings of joy, love, and positivity, you receive experiences in your life that mirror these emotions.

    But if you maintain a negative attitude in which you always consider yourself the victim and claim that nothing ever works out for you, you’ll continue to receive experiences that reflect this belief.

    (There’s a little more to this, though, and we’ll cover that below.)

    By understanding how the Law of Attraction works, we can use this law to consciously vibrate at the frequency of what we want to attract. We usually refer to this practice as manifestation.

    In this article, we’ll cover how you can use the Law of Attraction to manifest your future, plus we’ll dive deeper into how the other spiritual laws all support the Law of Attraction. (Simply put, you can’t have the Law of Attraction on its own. These laws are all intertwined, and together, they create a special kind of magic. More on that below!)

    In This Article:

    How Does The Law Of Attraction Work?

    The Law of Attraction is a profound reminder that your greatest power is always in the present moment.

    How often do you check in with your thoughts? Do you ever step back and ask, “What energy am I emitting right now?”

    For many of us, it’s easy to replay events of the past or worry about the future. In fact, this may be our status quo. What can I worry about? What unseen challenges ahead can I prepare myself for? How can I protect myself from an uncertain future?

    We gravitate towards these types of thoughts because they feel like control.

    But the truth is, replaying the same past-based and future-based thoughts isn’t control at all.

    Again, your greatest power is in the present moment. Your control over your future is in this present moment. It’s in how you show up for yourself. It’s in the energy you put out into the world.

    It’s in your dominant vibration.

    To go back to the beginning, like attracts like. If you’re constantly replaying your fears on a loop, you become a vibrational match for the very experiences you fear. (You might refer to this as a self-fulfilling prophecy.)

    But when you lean into peace, trust, gratitude, and other powerful, uplifting emotions, you become a vibrational match for more of these types of experiences to manifest in your reality.

    That is, in essence, how the Law of Attraction works.

    One important note I want to make, though, is this:

    This does not mean you have to be happy 100% of the time. And this absolutely does not mean you have to suppress negative thoughts and feelings within. When you suppress energy, it doesn’t go away; rather, it remains inside of you until you’re ready to acknowledge and fully feel it, even if it’s uncomfortable at first.

    It’s important to understand this:

    There’s a difference between someone who is constantly angry, bitter, and negative about life versus someone who has a pretty positive attitude but just has a bad day every once in a while. Having bad days and low moments just means you’re human.

    The key is practicing compassion.

    If you can continually practice compassion when you’re experiencing heavy and low moments, that love and compassion you feel for yourself will instantly lift your vibration to a better place.

    How To Use The Law Of Attraction To Manifest Your Future

    Now, I’m going to share with you what I call the manifestation blueprint.

    What often prevents people from becoming confident long-term manifestors is that they treat manifestation like a game. They usually have a fake-it-til-you-make-it mentality. “If I can just remain 100% happy and positive all the time, everything I want will come to me.”

    When I first started my journey, that was what I believed. And I’ll tell you, it was exhausting and not mentally sustainable.

    The truth is, manifestation is less of a game and more of an art. There’s an ebb and flow between you and the universe that can actually be really easy and feel really good once you learn how to lean into it.

    So here’s the manifestation blueprint:

    • 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. (This is where the Law of Attraction comes in.)
    • 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. (More on this below.)
    • 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.

    The 12 Laws Of The Universe

    So now, let’s return to what we discussed in the intro. The Law of Attraction is just one of the 12 Laws of the Universe. If you’re interested in learning more, I go into a deeper explanation of what these 12 laws are in this article.

    Here’s a quick list of these 12 spiritual laws:

    I definitely recommend learning more about each of these laws, as the Law of Attraction is only one piece of a larger puzzle.

    The Law of Vibration and the Law of Inspired Action are especially important when understanding how the Law of Attraction works, so I’m going to focus on those two right now.

    The Law of Vibration

    The Law of Vibration states that everything and every being is in a constant state of vibration, always emitting frequencies and energies that often aren’t seen on the surface.

    When you hear about the Law of Attraction, you’ll often hear the word vibration being used. “Raise your vibration” and “high vibrations” are common phrases in this space.

    But what exactly does this mean?

    Everything is always in constant motion. If you walk outside, you’ll see that everything in nature holds a different energy, or vibrational frequency. The energy of the sun is different than the energy of the trees, which is different than the energy of your car.

    You, too, hold a vibrational frequency. This frequency can and often does change. 

    Once you understand that you possess your own vibrational frequency, you realize you have the power to tune your frequency to a higher vibration. 

    The vibrational frequency you emit has a profound effect on your daily experience. When you operate at a higher frequency, you invite a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment into your world.

    So the Law of Attraction and the Law of Vibration are inextricably intertwined: the vibration you emit into the world is what you’re attracting.

    I also like to think of it like this:

    What are you moving towards right now? Are you moving towards stress? Worry? Anger? Are you moving towards peace? Trust? Freedom? Every feeling and emotion holds its own vibration.

    What you’re moving towards is moving towards you, too.

    Or, rather, the vibration you’re moving towards is also moving towards you.

    The Law of Inspired Action

    This is a big one. In fact, this is the primary reason why people claim the Law of Attraction doesn’t work: because they’re skipping this foundational universal law.

    Simply put, you can’t have the Law of Attraction without the Law of Inspired Action.

    So what exactly is this law?

    The Law of Inspired Action states that you must take real, actionable, inspired steps in order to achieve your goals and invite your manifestations into your life.

    Here’s how I like to explain it:

    What you want also wants you. Do you long to experience true love? True love wants you, too. Are you seeking financial prosperity? Financial prosperity wants you, too.

    It was never about becoming more worthy of these things. You are already infinitely worthy of what you desire. It’s simply about becoming an energetic match for these positive experiences to enter your life.

    Once you start vibrating at the frequency of love and abundance, you become an energetic match for more love and abundance to enter your life.

    But does that mean you’re automatically going to receive these things in your life right now?

    Not necessarily.

    If you’re an energetic match for experiencing financial abundance, you may not see financial prosperity in your life right this second. But that doesn’t mean your manifestation isn’t working.

    Remember what I wrote in the manifestation steps above? This is part of the third bulletpoint:

    “Being in the vibration of what you desire allows you to receive these signs and inner nudges with clarity.”

    So if you’re an energetic match for abundance, you’re in the vibration to receive intuitive nudges to guide you on the path toward your abundance. These intuitive nudges may tell you to go talk to a person, sign up for a course, submit an application, start a blog, write a book – the possibilities are endless.

    Once you receive this intuitive nudge, that’s when you take inspired action.

    Inspired action is based on surrendering to the guidance of the universe and listening to the call of your inner knowing.

    So again, this is often the missing link when people say the Law of Attraction doesn’t work. They believe that if something doesn’t materialize in their outer world, it’s not working.

    But often, it is working. They may be receiving intuitive guidance to take an inspired step forward.

    But without fully understanding the full scope of the universal laws, this intuitive guidance may be ignored.


    The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like; the vibrations, beliefs, and emotions you put out into the world are what you receive in your lived experiences. By understanding how this law works, you can intentionally tune your vibration to match your desires, thus attracting more of what you want into your lived experience. But remember: you can’t have the Law of Attraction without the other 11 universal laws. Each law is linked, and together, they create a roadmap to a life of true peace and fulfillment.

    What Are Abundance Checks?

    Abundance checks (or cheques) are blank checks that you can use to aid you in manifesting financial prosperity. Usually, these will be digital checks like the free ones you can download at the bottom of this article. If you prefer, you can use your own checkbook or create your own checks, either digital or handwritten.

    On your abundance check, you’ll write your name on the “Pay to the Order of” line. Then, you’ll write down the amount of money you’re going to manifest on the “Amount” line. (I’ll go into more detail on how to fill out these checks below.)

    Abundance checks can be powerful tools for supporting your manifestations and helping you to align with the energy of pure, limitless abundance. They’re also a great way to set intentions and decide what exactly you want to manifest in your reality.

    Below, we’ll cover whether abundance checks actually work, how to fill out your abundance check, and more tips to get the most out of your checks. Plus, you can download your free printable abundance checks and start discovering the power of this profound manifestation tool today.

    Do Abundance Checks Work?

    In a word: yes.

    The most famous example of an abundance check manifesting in real life is the story of how Jim Carrey wrote himself a check for ten million dollars when he was still a broke, largely unknown actor. He gave himself three years to receive this money, dating it for Thanksgiving 1995.

    So what happened?

    As he told Oprah Winfrey, just before Thanksgiving 1995, he found out he was going to make ten million dollars for his role in Dumb and Dumber.

    So what’s the secret?

    As Jim Carrey himself told Oprah, you can’t just visualize something and then do nothing. He worked hard. He believed in himself. He continually visualized his dreams manifesting in his reality.

    And that’s what it comes down to.

    Are you willing to open your mind and believe in your own innate ability to manifest the life you desire? Can you choose to consistently vibrate at the frequency of abundance rather than scarcity? Do you believe that the universe wants to support you in your manifestations?

    Abundance checks work to the degree you’re willing to believe that they work. But don’t just believe in the check itself. Believe in yourself. Believe in this infinite universe. Believe that you are absolutely worthy of pure, limitless abundance. (Because you are always, always worthy.)

    You can watch the clip of Jim Carrey’s story in this interview on Oprah.com here. (I definitely recommend it!)

    To learn more about creating a life of true abundance, be sure to check out my review of Mindvalley’s Unlimited Abundance program here. In this review, I cover what you can expect in this online course, plus I give you my authentic experiences, outcomes, and recommendations. I definitely recommend checking this one out!

    How To Fill Out Your Abundance Check

    • First, decide what date you want to put at the top of the check. The date you write here is completely up to you. You can choose a date in the future (either a random date or one that holds special meaning to you) or write today’s date on your check. You can also write a word such as Today or Now. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the exact amount will show up today. Rather, it means you have faith that it’s all aligning for you and in the process of manifesting.
    • Choose the dollar amount you want to write on the check. Pick a number that feels really good to you! Some people recommend choosing a number that seems reasonable to your conscious mind (basically, something that you feel confident in manifesting). I think the most important thing is to pick a number that excites you and feels really positive. Write the number on the “Amount” line and in the box on the right-hand side of the check.
    • Fill out the “Memo” field. You can approach this two ways. The first method is to fill out the memo field as the reason why the Universe is giving you this money. You’ll see this in the first example below: “For being your authentic self and sharing your gifts with the world.” The second method is to fill in what the money is going to be used for. So if you want to manifest five thousand dollars for a vacation, you might write “Dream vacation” in the memo field.

    Here are two examples showing how the abundance check might be filled out:

    How To Use Your Abundance Check

    So once you have your abundance check, what do you do with it?

    Again, this is all about your personal preference. Some people like to look at their checks every day, while others prefer to store it somewhere safe where it isn’t always in front of them.

    Personally, I like to keep my checks in my wallet, as this practice feels really positive and powerful for me.

    However, if seeing your check every day gives you anxiety (or causes you to obsessively wonder when your manifestation is going to come), it might be better to store it somewhere you won’t constantly be looking at it.

    An important aspect of manifesting is being able to let go and surrender your manifestations to the universe, not worrying about when your manifestation is going to arrive. So if you find yourself in worry mode, just place your abundance check somewhere safe, preferably somewhere that has good energy. You can even put a piece of citrine, pyrite, or another powerful gemstone with it to amplify the energy of the check.

    Here are some ways you might use your abundance check:

    • Store it in your wallet, and each time you see your check in there, feel all the positive emotions of having that amount of money right now.
    • Hang it up on a bulletin board and take some time to look at it each day. Visualize the experience of receiving this amount of money, and tune your energy to the frequency of pure abundance.
    • Place it in a drawer, a lockbox, or somewhere safe. Surrender your desires to the universe, and walk forward in faith and trust.

    Tips & Tricks For Making Your Abundance Check Work

    • My favorite trick to amplify the power of an abundance check is to add a bit of manifesting oil to the check after I’ve written it. Manifesting oils are blends of essential oils and herbs formulated to aid you in manifesting your desires. You can learn more about different types of manifesting oils and how to use them here.
    • Another one of my favorite ways to use an abundance check is in conjunction with the pillow method for manifestation. Place your check under your pillow for 7 to 10 days. Each night before you fall asleep, visualize receiving this money, allowing the positive energy of this beautiful abundance to flow through you.
    • An important aspect of manifestation is following your intuition. Sometimes, your intuition will guide you to follow a certain path, take a certain action, or do something that you wouldn’t normally do. When you feel these inner nudges, trust them! That just may be the universe guiding you to the exact amount of money you’ve asked for. You can read my complete guide to tapping into your intuition here.
    • And make sure that after your intuition speaks to you, you take inspired action!
    • And finally, as with all manifestation practices, make sure you’re regularly checking in with yourself. What vibrations are you currently emitting? Are you vibrating at the frequency of abundance? Regularly practice allowing pure, abundant energy to flow through you. Visualization is a powerful tool to help you with this. (And here, you’ll find 50 abundance affirmations to support your journey and help you manifest a limitless life.)

    Planting Your Seeds Of Intention

    I often compare manifestation to planting a garden.

    It starts with the soil you’re growing your plants (or manifestations) in.

    This soil is your mindset. In order to manifest your dreams and desires, you first must cultivate a positive mindset. And by positive mindset, I don’t mean only ever having happy thoughts and emotions. You are absolutely allowed to experience lower, heavier emotions from time-to-time.

    You’re allowed to be imperfect. You’re allowed to have bad days.

    Frankly, you’re allowed to be human.

    What I mean by positive mindset is this:

    • You believe in yourself, and you believe in your own innate power to create the life you desire.
    • You show yourself unconditional self-love and self-compassion.
    • You’re willing to view obstacles and challenges as opportunities for growth. (And you’re also willing to see how a roadblock might actually lead you to a better path.)
    • You consistently show up for yourself.
    • You’re willing to choose courage over fear.
    • You have a picture of your higher self and consistently align with this truest, deepest part of you day-after-day.
    • And even when life isn’t perfect, you choose to view the world through a lens of gratitude and appreciation.

    All of these components are like the nutrients in the soil that acts as the foundation for your beautiful garden. The more nutrients you have, the more your garden will thrive.

    Once you’ve created this rich, nutrient-filled soil, it’s time to plant your seeds.

    And in manifestation, these seeds are your dreams, goals, and intentions.

    In this article, we’re going to talk all about how to set an intention for manifestation. We’ll go in-depth on goals versus intentions, how to set goals and intentions, how to communicate your goals to the universe, and the importance of surrendering your goals and releasing control of how they show up for you.

    We have a lot to cover, so let’s dive straight in. You can also skip ahead to any of these sections by using the links below.

    Setting Goals Versus Setting Intentions

    First, let’s discuss what it means to set a goal versus setting an intention. Often, you’ll see the words intention and goal used interchangeably, and that’s completely fine. However, there can be slight differences to how we perceive these words. 

    • A goal is the static, end result of your manifestations; it’s the thing you want to manifest in your reality. 
    • An intention, on the other hand, is how you want to be as you work towards your goals. For instance, if you want to manifest financial prosperity, you might set the intention to be the embodiment of abundance in your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

    Here are a few more examples to help you differentiate goals from intentions. In the left-hand column, you’ll find a goal that someone might set for themselves. On the right-hand column, you’ll find a corresponding intention to support that goal.

    To get accepted into a specific university or program.To embody the feelings of success and achievement in your daily life.
    To write a successful children’s book.To align with the flow of creativity and inspiration within.
    To lose or gain a certain amount of weight.To see yourself as capable, powerful, and strong.
    To go on a great first date (that will lead to a second).To be the embodiment of pure love and joy throughout your day.

    In manifestation, it’s important to set both goals and intentions to support your journey. Your goals are your ultimate desired outcome. What do you want to manifest? What do you ultimately hope to receive? What’s the long-term vision you have for your life?

    Write down these goals you have for yourself so that they don’t just exist in your head. This is important, as writing down your goals will help to turn them from an abstract idea in your mind to a concrete, achievable thing you can have and experience. (Vision boards help, too!)

    Now, think of some intentions you can set that will support your goals. You might write down some new intentions for each month, week, or even day.

    For example, if you want to manifest a raise at work, then you might set the intention to vibrate at the frequency of financial prosperity. Write down this intention and come back to it regularly. This will help you to remain aligned with your overall goal throughout your daily life as well as support your long-term manifestations.

    Guidelines For Setting Goals

    Before we go deeper into the importance of intentions, let’s talk about your goals. The first step in articulating what you want to manifest is to define your life vision.

    What’s your ideal future? Where do you see yourself in five, ten, and even twenty years? What dreams are most prominent within you?

    Be honest about your goals. They should never be based on what someone else wants for you. Your goals, dreams, and visions should always align with your authentic truths and desires

    Manifestation may seem hard from the outside, but half the battle is setting goals that feel right to you. Because once you set a goal that aligns with your truest desires (and that feels really good to you), you’re in alignment with the Universe. It becomes easier to trust the flow of your life’s path. And even more, the Universe will do everything possible to support you. (Though you may not always see it right away.)

    The difficult thing for many people is that this also means you can’t force something that doesn’t truly feel right.

    Have you ever tried to force a relationship, even though deep within, you knew something was off? You may be able to keep it up for a while, but it isn’t sustainable.

    And even more, when you do this, you’re actually holding yourself back.

    Because the truth is, when you stop forcing and instead align with what feels good and right to you (i.e. get in a flow state), you open yourself up to receiving things that are much better than what you’re trying to force.

    Setting goals that feel sincere, heartfelt, and unforced is key to a successful (and happy) manifestation. When you try to set a goal that feels forced or insincere, you’ll most often meet one of two outcomes:

    • Your manifestation doesn’t work, causing you to feel like either you failed or that manifestation in general doesn’t actually work. The reason it hasn’t worked is because there’s an underlying desperation to your desire. Instead of surrendering and allowing something to happen, you’re trying to force something to happen on your timeline.
    • Your manifestation does work, and you get what you want. But it turns out, it’s not as great as you had imagined.

    So how do you start with setting goals? First, we’ll talk about a few guidelines for goal setting, and then we’ll talk about how you can communicate these goals and dreams to the Universe.

    Be Specific (But Leave Room For Possibilities)

    When you set a goal, you want to be specific.

    For instance, if you want to manifest love, think about the specific qualities you want in a partner. Are you looking for someone to travel the world with, or would you prefer to find someone who will plant roots with you somewhere?

    Also think about the duration of your desired relationship. Are you looking for someone you can have fun with but aren’t sure you’re ready for lifetime commitment yet? Or are you looking for a lasting, forever kind of love?

    Finally, describe the qualities you desire most in a partner: non-negotiables like humor, faithfulness, and generosity.

    So essentially, have a clear vision of what you want and define the most important aspects of this vision.

    But keep in mind, there is a line between having a clear vision and being a bit too specific.

    Specify the qualities that are most important to you, but leave some room for the unexpected. Using the same example as above, you might not want to specify the exact hair and eye color of your future partner. And maybe they don’t have to work in a specific career field. When you leave room for the unexpected, you’ll often be surprised with an outcome even better than what you had imagined.

    Don’t Focus On The “How”

    This is actually one of the biggest blockages to manifestation, and it’s often something we don’t even realize we’re doing.

    Often, when we set goals, we imagine exactly how this dream scenario will play out. There’s nothing wrong with this; it’s fun to visualize! The problem is when you limit yourself to just this one possible path.

    When you’re setting intentions, don’t worry about how this desired person, thing, or experience will come to you. Focus simply on the end result. 

    Here are a couple examples of how you don’t want to set intentions:

    • “I want to manifest one million dollars by winning the lottery.” (What if that money could actually come to you in a way that’s easier, more meaningful, and brings you more joy than winning the lottery?)
    • “I want to manifest my soulmate in a meet-cute at the coffee shop.” (What if you never cross paths with that perfect person at the coffee shop, but they’re just a click away on the dating app you keep hearing about?)

    Set Small And Big Goals

    When you think about your dreams, you’re most likely thinking about the really big things. But don’t forget to set some smaller goals as well. (These “smaller” goals may even be steps leading you to that really big thing you want.) 

    One powerful practice I like to use in my personal daily routine is write down one small thing I want to manifest that day.

    For instance, I might decide I’m going to manifest a really great conversation with someone or an unexpected moment of laughter and joy.

    This is a great way to build your confidence in your manifesting power! You might think of these as “mini manifestation goals” that help you grow your confidence in manifesting the bigger things.

    How To Set Goals For Manifestation

    So now that we’ve articulated some guidelines for setting goals, let’s talk about how you can start setting goals and deciding what exactly you want to manifest. Again, it’s important to write down your individual goals, as you want to transform these abstract ideas in your mind into concrete, achievable things that you can manifest.

    • First, connect with your authentic dreams and desires. Is there a certain dream that’s been in your heart for several years? Has a new dream begun to enter your vision? What excites you? What ignites that inner spark? What do you truly desire for your life? It might help you to first step back and simply visualize what your ideal life would look like. Paint a picture in your head, or write about it in your journal.
    • Articulate these dreams and long-term visions for your future into clear, specific goals. Write down these goals. You might also create a vision board that includes words and images that embody what your ideal life looks and feels like.
    • When you’re first setting goals, don’t worry about what the path ahead might look like. Allow yourself to focus solely on the end result of what exactly you want to manifest. Instead of worrying about controlling your path, focus on setting daily intentions to support your journey. (More on that below!)

    How To Set An Intention For Manifestation

    One of the most profound practices you can do throughout your daily life to support your manifestations is to set daily intentions.

    Setting an intention will help you to continually remain aligned with your dreams and desires, no matter what’s going on in your outer world. Even if something happens that causes you to become misaligned, you can keep returning back to your intention and realign with the thoughts, feelings, and overall frequency of your desired manifestation.

    For instance, if your goal is to write a bestselling novel, then your daily intention might be to connect with your inner creativity and embody the feelings of success throughout your day. You can choose a different intention daily, weekly, or monthly.

    Your intentions will be based on feelings and what you want to prioritize each day. You might set an intention to feel abundant, successful, peaceful, happy, or free. You might also set an intention to prioritize your creativity or make space for more play in your daily life. Whatever your intention is, let it be something that feels good and is aligned with your overall goals.

    Here are some tips for setting an intention for manifestation:

    • Have a dedicated notebook or journal (or a page in your bullet journal) for daily, weekly, and/or monthly intentions. Write down your intention and take a moment each morning to align with the thoughts and feelings associated with this intention.
    • Even if you have multiple goals, try to set only one intention a day. Setting too many daily intentions can get overwhelming and cause you to lose focus. (And it’s entirely possible that a single intention, such as embodying the feelings of abundance, will support multiple goals you have.)
    • It can be easy to lose sight of your intentions throughout your day, especially if your job and other daily tasks can be stressful. To help, create some phone notifications to go off throughout the day to help you realign with your intention. You can also place post-it notes in places where you’ll easily see them throughout the day.
    • And if you do become misaligned with your intention? That’s okay! The worst thing you can do is criticize or judge yourself. Instead, simply acknowledge it and allow yourself to realign, over and over again if needed. You don’t have to be perfect here. Some days are harder than others, and that’s completely normal. The important thing is that you consistently show up for yourself and do the best you can.

    How To Communicate Your Goals To The Universe

    Once you’ve gotten clear on what it is you want to manifest, it’s time to communicate your vision to the Universe.

    So how exactly do you do this?

    This is a question I get a lot, and I think it’s a practice we often overly complicate.

    The truth is, the Universe is already well aware of your dreams and desires. In fact, the Universe knew of this deep-rooted desire when it was only a brief hint of a vision in your mind, before you had ever articulated it into words. 

    However, having a formal practice for communicating your intentions to the Universe is a powerful way of saying, “I’m ready.” The Universe has been patiently waiting for you to align with your inner truth and power. This is your moment to convey to the Universe that you’re ready to be guided forward. 

    Before I discuss some of the methods of communicating your intentions to the Universe, I want to add this: this is more than just communication. It’s also about surrendering – or handing over – your plans to the Universe.

    It’s about saying, “Here’s what I want. I trust your path for me. Even if it doesn’t come to me exactly the way I envision it, I know it’ll be even better. I release my dreams to you in faith, trust, and love.”

    Find a practice for releasing your vision to the Universe that feels good to you. Some people do better with visualization practices, while others prefer to write a letter to the Universe. One method isn’t better than the other; it all comes down to your personal preference and what feels best for you. 

    Methods For Communicating Your Goals And Intentions

    • In meditation, visualize your dreams and desires in detail. You might visualize what a perfect day would look like once you have your deepest desires. Allow yourself to feel all the positive feelings of having what you want in this present moment. Once you’re finished with your visualization, imagine that you’re placing this dream in a balloon or paper lantern. Visualize your dream rising higher and higher into the sky until you can no longer see it. Now, it’s in the Universe’s hands. Trust that everything is working out exactly as it’s meant to.
    • You can do this same practice in written form, if you prefer. Script a day in your dream life. At the end of your script, let the Universe know you’re prepared for all of your deepest dreams and desires. Thank the Universe for gently guiding you. 
    • You might also write down your dreams in list form. Some people like to burn their lists as a symbolic way of saying they don’t have to hold on tightly to their dreams because they know the Universe is taking care of them in perfect timing.
    • Sometimes, the best way to communicate is to simply talk to the Universe. Tell the Universe what you want. Communicate your intentions. Surrender your desires, let go, and walk forward in faith and trust. If you prefer, you can do this in letter form.

    Why You Must Surrender Your Goals & Dreams

    Again, I want to make this clear: communicating to the Universe is more than just stating what you want. It’s also about surrender. This is a profound moment because it shows that you’re willing to let go and trust your path.

    It’s important to remember that you are a co-creator. This means that you’re working with the Universe to create the best possible future, for the highest good for all. There’s give and take in co-creation: 

    • You let the Universe know what it is that you want (and that you’re prepared to receive it)
    • The Universe sends you little nudges and messages through your intuition to guide you on your path. (And the Universe is also working behind the scenes to help you out, though you may never see all the things that are happening for you in this very moment.)
    • The Universe presents you with experiences and opportunities that are (most often) even better than you can imagine. 

    So as you communicate your intentions to the Universe, honor this sacred role as a co-creator.

    You’re not simply telling the Universe what you want.

    You’re letting the Universe know you’re ready to lean into the divine flow of life, to allow universal energy to move through you, and to trust the path ahead, even though you can’t yet see every step.

    And finally, your vibration is key in your daily communications with the Universe.

    By vibrating at the frequency of your desires, you’re continually communicating that you are ready to receive more of this positive thing.

    Additionally, being in this vibration will allow you to hear the Universe communicate back to you, usually through your own intuition (as well as signs and synchronicities that appear in your outer world).

    Conversely, being in a vibration of stress, anger, worry, or fear (or otherwise low vibration) will prevent you from receiving this communication.

    This is why meditation can be such a powerful addition to your daily routine, as it allows you to quiet all of the outer noise so you can hear what the Universe is trying to tell you.

    So as you step forward in your manifestation journey and set goals and intentions to support your dreams, begin asking yourself this daily:

    Is my vibration communicating that I’m in alignment with my deepest desires, and am I in the vibration to hear when the Universe is communicating back to me?
