    What Is The Pillow Method For Manifestation?

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

    So how do you practice the pillow manifestation method?

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

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

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

    How To Write Affirmations For The Pillow Method

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Incorporating Scripting Into The Pillow Method

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

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

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

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

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

    How Long Should You Keep Your Affirmation Under Your Pillow?

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

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

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

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

    Other Resources To Use To Amplify Your Practice

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

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

    Crystals & Gemstones

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

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

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

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

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

    Manifestation Oils

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

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

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

    Recap

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

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

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

    Facing Challenges and Adversity

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

    What does this mean?

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

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

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

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

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

    I am strong, capable, and competent.

    I’ve got this.

    But it doesn’t stop here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    How To Practice Gratitude (For Law Of Attraction)

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

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

    What Is The Law Of Attraction?

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

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

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

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

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

    This is the essence of manifestation.

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

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

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

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

    In This Article:

    Gratitude & The Law Of Attraction

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

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

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

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

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

    How To Practice Gratitude

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

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

    Here are some examples of how to do this:

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

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

    Methods For Practicing Gratitude

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

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

    Tips For Practicing Gratitude To Manifest Your Desires

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

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

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

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

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

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

    scripting journal

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

    This is where the real magic happens.

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

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

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

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

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

    What is the Solar Plexus Chakra?

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Creating a Positive Work Mindset

    I used to spend every morning as I got ready for work drowning in nonstop negativity.

    At the time, I wasn’t doing work that I felt passionate about. Every morning, I’d show up to the office as early as possible, one of the first ones there, just so I could get the day over with and get out of there as soon as I could.

    Deep within, I felt empty and lost. I knew this job wasn’t for me, but I had no idea how to get out of it. It paid me decently, plus offered good benefits. That should’ve been enough, right? It felt selfish to desire anything more.

    Maybe this is just how life is supposed to be, I thought. Maybe nobody is supposed to be happy in their jobs. You just show up for forty years and put in your time until you finally get to retire.

    On top of that, I really, really didn’t like my boss. In the morning, as I got ready for work, I’d run through all of the things he’d done recently that made me unhappy. Then, I’d play stories of made-up scenarios in my head where I’d picture him saying and doing even more frustrating things to make me angry.

    So it’s not a stretch to say I’d spend a good one to two hours every morning swimming in a sea of pessimism, gloom, and negativity.

    And that was all before I even walked out my front door.

    Looking back, I can see just how much I allowed external factors to influence my mindset.

    Because the truth is, even if I didn’t like my job, the job itself had no inherent power over my emotions. And even if my boss wasn’t my favorite person, he didn’t have power over my energy, either.

    I am the only one in charge of my energy.

    Every single day, I choose how I feel.

    Not my boss. Not my coworkers. Not customers or clients.

    Only I can choose what energy comes in and what goes out.

    It wasn’t until I dedicated myself to a consistent morning routine that included meditation, journaling, and positive affirmations that I started to notice shifts in my mindset. More than anything, these practices showed me just how much I was letting negativity control my life.

    And it was then that I decided to make a change: to take back my story and not let anything outside of me dictate how I feel.

    Do you work in a job you love? Or is it one that pays the bills but doesn’t feel like it’s where you’re meant to be? Are you miserable in your job, only showing up for a consistent paycheck?

    No matter your circumstances, you are the only one who can determine what energy you let in, and you’re also the only one who can decide what energy you put back out in the world.

    Know this:

    You deserve to work in a career you absolutely love.

    You deserve to be excited every single morning about the day ahead.

    You deserve to fall more and more in love with what you do every single day.

    And if you’re not there yet, that’s okay. Choose to view your current position as an opportunity for growth. Find little things every day to be grateful for.

    Instead of falling into the trap of stress and anxiety, take deep breaths and allow a wave of calm to wash over your body.

    Trust that you are exactly where you’re meant to be right now, and this is leading you to somewhere greater.

    How to Use These Affirmations

    The 50 positive affirmations for work below are designed to instill positivity, confidence, and peace within. These affirmations are meant to remind you of your inner power and give you the courage and strength to face anything that comes up during your workday.

    Some of the affirmations are written to help you cultivate a positive mindset as you get ready for work, and others are midday pick-me-ups that you can use while you’re at work.

    Here are some easy yet effective ways to use positive affirmations:

    • Write down 3 to 5 positive affirmations every morning.
    • Repeat positive affirmations while showering, getting ready for the day, and on your morning commute.
    • Set up phone notifications that will pop up intermittently throughout the day with uplifting affirmations written on them.
    • Stick post-it notes around your workspace filled with empowering affirmations.
    • Make a pact with a friend that you’ll text uplifting messages to each other throughout the day.
    • Create a Daily Affirmations board on Pinterest that you can scroll through every time you need a quick pick-me-up.
    • Say three positive affirmations every night before going to bed.

    (I also post daily affirmations on my Instagram stories every morning, so be sure to connect with me there, too!)

    Additionally, start paying attention to your thoughts. Whenever you realize you’re having a negative thought that doesn’t serve or support your total well-being, take control of your thoughts and choose to recite empowering affirmations to yourself instead. You’ll be amazed at how quickly and profoundly your whole world shifts once you start cultivating a more positive mindset.

    Cultivating Unconditional Self-Love

    You are worthy of unconditional self-love.

    And even more: you deserve to be loved every single day of your life.

    Is that hard to say? It used to be for me. I had a hard time believing I “deserved” anything good in this world. I remember the first time I tried to say the affirmation, “I deserve joy.” Almost immediately, my inner bully heard these words and stampeded right out to speak her mind:

    “Who are you to say that you deserve joy? How selfish can you be? What have you done to deserve anything? The world doesn’t revolve around you! Stop thinking about yourself so much!”

    Ouch. That hurt. But it didn’t dissuade me. So I decided to re-frame my perspective:

    I believe my best friend deserves infinite joy and love, right? Absolutely.

    And my nieces and nephews? Always.

    What about my neighbors, community members, and strangers I see on afternoon walks? Well, sure. I don’t know them, but I believe they deserve joy, too.

    It’s just me, I realized. The only person I was being unfairly hard on was myself.

    With this newfound perspective, my attitude began to shift. I started to speak lovingly to myself, knowing I was worthy of every single positive word I said.

    And that question my inner bully had asked before?

    “What have you done to deserve anything?”

    Well, nothing. And everything. You see, I realized that I don’t actually have to do anything to deserve love, joy, peace, abundance, and all the good stuff in my life.

    I was already deserving, just because I existed.

    And the same is true for you.

    Your very existence makes you worthy of unconditional self-love. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to prove anything. You don’t have to achieve anything.

    You just have to be.

    You are worthy.

    You are deserving.

    And you are more than enough–just because you’re you.

    Always.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    The journal prompts below are designed to help you love, celebrate, and honor everything that makes you uniquely you.

    There are no rules for how to approach these prompts. If you want, you can answer them one at a time, or you can skip around and find the ones that resonate most with you.

    If possible, try to schedule 15 to 30 minutes for your journaling time. Find a quiet spot where you won’t be distracted, and set the intention to be open and honest with yourself. And most of all, release all judgment as you start to write. If an uncomfortable feeling arises, choose to have compassion for yourself.

    Remember this:

    Self-love isn’t about cultivating perfection. Self-love is about loving your imperfections perfectly.

    Discovering Affirmations

    In 2014, my introduction to affirmations came in the form of body positive affirmations.

    I had found a list of 100 body positive affirmations somewhere online and decided to copy it and email it to myself. While I would love to tell you that this discovery propelled me into a journey of total and complete self-love, I’m pretty sure that email stayed at the bottom of my inbox for the next couple years, untouched and ignored.

    While I wanted to accept my body completely, I had a hard time accepting myself if I didn’t fit into a perfect box. I really only wanted to love my body on the condition that I could change it and mold it into something that society would deem beautiful.

    The following years were filled with hardship and heartbreak as I battled with the girl I saw in the mirror, but I wouldn’t trade those years for anything as they allowed me to learn and grow into the confident, self-loving woman I am now.

    Back then, I also had no idea how to truly use affirmations. I saw them as nice and uplifting words but didn’t understand their inherent power. I wasn’t sure how to get the words on the screen to resonate inside me.

    And if you’re in that place, too, that’s okay. I’ve included some tips below to help you with using body positive affirmations so that they truly resonate with you.

    I recommend using the body-positive affirmations in this post in tandem with other types of affirmations, like these affirmations for self-love and these ones for self-confidence. I find that body positive affirmations can be most powerful when used with other types of affirmations that don’t just focus on your body but on all parts of you: your heart, your spirit, your kindness, and your inherent and undeniable worthiness.

    How to Use Body Positive Affirmations

    While the notes I’m about to give are certainly true for all types of affirmations, I want to emphasize them especially for body positive affirmations because this can be a sensitive subject for many.

    You may come to an affirmation in the list below that just feels off. What do I mean by that? Here’s an example:

    Imagine that you’re reading the affirmation, “My body is truly beautiful.” You recite it, trying to feel the positive emotions associated with these words, but in the back of your mind, you hear a little voice that says, yeah right.

    While you definitely want to be able to say this affirmation with confidence, you’re still on a path of healing your body insecurities, and you’re not quite yet at a place where you can assert that your body is truly beautiful.

    And that’s okay.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with you if you experience discomfort with any of the affirmations below (or any affirmations at all, for that matter).

    First, if you experience this, release any self-judgment or self-criticism over your discomfort. Know that it’s okay to be exactly where you are in your healing journey. Have compassion for where you currently are, and remember that you don’t have to race to the finish line all at once.

    You have the right to take this one step at a time, at your own pace.

    When I discover an affirmation that I don’t feel completely comfortable with, I like to employ what I call the Ladder Method. In this method, I take a step back from the original affirmation and alter it in a way that feels more comfortable for me.

    For instance, I might use the phrases I am open to . . . or I am willing to . . . in my newly altered affirmation.

    Let’s try this with the affirmation I used above: My body is truly beautiful.

    How can I alter this in a way that will feel more comfortable for me? I could say, I am open to seeing all the ways in which my body is truly beautiful. Or, I am willing to believe that my body is truly beautiful.

    You might use your altered affirmation for a few weeks before taking the next step closer to the original affirmation. Your next step might be something like this: Even though I don’t always see it, I know in my heart that my body is truly beautiful.

    Feel empowered to modify any of the affirmations below so that they’ll feel more comfortable for you. It’s also completely okay to skip an affirmation and choose to solely focus on the ones that feel good to you. In time, you might decide to come back to the list and see if any of the other affirmations begin to resonate a little more.

    Remember: take this at your own pace, and show yourself unconditional kindness and compassion, no matter what.

    Cultivating Happiness

    When I turned five years old, I remember blowing out the candles on my birthday cake and making a wish for limitless candy that I could eat whenever I wanted. M&M’s were my favorite, but I wasn’t super picky: chocolate candy, fruity candy, hard candies and lollipops . . . I’d take it all.

    Okay, maybe not all. Black licorice and spicy candies were a hard pass.

    As the next couple years passed by, I’d continue to make wishes for new toys, CDs, and my own stereo so I could lock myself in my room and jam out to Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys without interruptions.

    I don’t remember when the transition happened, but at some point, a realization had occurred to me. Toys, CDs, and limitless candy were all cool, but what if there was a way that I could have all of that and more?

    What if there was one word that could give me everything I had ever wanted?

    Happiness.

    If I wished for happiness, I thought, that meant that I’d get everything I wanted without there being a catch. I’d get all the things I’d been dreaming of, plus my friends and family would be healthy and happy, too.

    It was a win-win for everyone.

    My concept of happiness was simple when I was a sweet ten-year-old who wanted nothing more than to ride bikes and read books and jump on my best friend’s trampoline. After I graduated high school and began navigating my way through college, I spent a lot of time relearning what happiness truly meant, often overcomplicating it and sometimes believing it would always be just out of reach.

    I’ve come full circle since then, once again simplifying my definition of happiness, but I’ve also learned something that I didn’t quite understand as a young girl.

    My happiness never came from all the candy or toys or CDs or any of the things I was given. Sure, those things brought me fleeting moments of joy, but lasting happiness didn’t come from things.

    Lasting happiness, I learned, comes from within.

    I’ve learned that happiness comes when I make happiness a priority, and even more importantly, happiness comes when I choose it.

    And what I’ve discovered most of all is that happiness is not a result of getting everything I want; happiness comes when I feel grateful for everything I already have.

    Your Journey to Your True Self

    Who is your truest, most authentic self? When you close your eyes and try to picture yourself, who do you see? What qualities would you use to describe yourself? How have past experiences shaped you into the person you are today?

    These are just some of the questions you can begin to ask yourself as you walk forward on your personal growth journey.

    But first, what exactly does that mean? “Your personal growth journey.”

    Personal growth entails getting in touch with your innermost self and looking into who you truly are: beyond appearances, beyond what’s expected of you, beyond even what you expect of yourself.

    When you get past labels and preconceived notions, who is your authentic self?

    It also requires you to ask important questions and respond with complete honesty. What does your heart really want? What limiting beliefs are preventing you from going after your dreams? What’s holding you back from living the life that was truly meant for you?

    And as you ask these questions of yourself, you must then go beyond just asking. You must do.

    What self-care practices will help you to align with your best self? Start those today.

    What positive habits will serve and support your mind, body, and spirit? Start adding them into your daily routine this month.

    What does your soul need? Let it in.

    Below, you’ll find 45 personal growth journal prompts to support you in your journey. As you go through these questions, you might find that some take up pages of writing, while others can be answered quickly. There’s no right or wrong amount of time or space to use for these questions. Just keep digging for the truth.

    And that’s the key, really: truth. Authenticity. Being honest with yourself.

    Don’t simply tell yourself what you want to hear; tell yourself what you need to hear. But do so with love and compassion. If you find yourself judging or criticizing yourself for your answers, step back and gently assert that criticism has no place here.

    Know that you are always, always worthy of kindness and compassion, even when you’re writing about your own perceived imperfections or mistakes you’ve made in the past.

    Know that all experiences have supported your growth and have led you to where you are right now.

    I hope these personal growth journal prompts support you in your journey and help you to align with the person you were always meant to be: the real and true you.

    Raising Your Vibration

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

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

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

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

    Here’s what I mean:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Why Raise Your Vibration?

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

    What is manifestation?

    To manifest something means to visualize your dreams and desires and to vibrate at the frequency of your desires as if they’ve already come true. This belief is rooted in the idea that what we give out, we get back.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Gratitude

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Present Moment

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Positive Affirmations

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

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

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

    I am worthy.

    I am whole.

    I am enough.

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

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

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

    Vision Board

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Love

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

    So how exactly do you do this?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Nature

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

    Hugs

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

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

    Breathing Exercises

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Highest Self

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Light

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

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

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

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

    Longer Practices to Raise Your Vibration

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

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

    Emotional Guidance Scale

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    • Joy/Appreciation/Empowerment/Freedom/Love
    • Passion
    • Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
    • Positive Expectation/Belief
    • Optimism
    • Hopefulness
    • Contentment
