    What Is The Pillow Method For Manifestation?

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

    So how do you practice the pillow manifestation method?

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

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

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

    How To Write Affirmations For The Pillow Method

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Incorporating Scripting Into The Pillow Method

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

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

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

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

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

    scripting journal

    How Long Should You Keep Your Affirmation Under Your Pillow?

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

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

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

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

    Other Resources To Use To Amplify Your Practice

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

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

    Crystals & Gemstones

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

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

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

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

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

    Manifestation Oils

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

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

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

    Recap

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

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

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

    Facing Challenges and Adversity

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

    What does this mean?

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

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

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

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

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

    I am strong, capable, and competent.

    I’ve got this.

    But it doesn’t stop here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    How To Practice Gratitude (For Law Of Attraction)

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

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

    What Is The Law Of Attraction?

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

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

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

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

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

    This is the essence of manifestation.

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

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

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

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

    In This Article:

    Gratitude & The Law Of Attraction

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

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

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

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

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

    How To Practice Gratitude

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

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

    Here are some examples of how to do this:

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

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

    Methods For Practicing Gratitude

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

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

    Tips For Practicing Gratitude To Manifest Your Desires

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

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

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

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

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

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

    scripting journal

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

    This is where the real magic happens.

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

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

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

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

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

    Spiritual Healing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    Healing the Sacral Chakra

    How often do you let yourself play?

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

    Just fun, non-productive, glorious play.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    If you want to learn more about practices to balance your sacral chakra, you can check out my post on sacral chakra healing practices here.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

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

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

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

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

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

    What is Your Sacral Chakra?

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

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

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

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

    How the Law of Rhythm Influences Your Daily Life

    The Law of Rhythm is all about cycles and perpetual movement. By understanding the Law of Rhythm, you can see how cycles play out in your daily life and release resistance to changes that unfold in your world. In this post, dive deeper into the Law of Rhythm and how it can affect your life when experiencing stress, hardships, and other difficulties. Plus, get journal prompts to help you gain a deeper insight into the cycles that play out in your own life.

    How the Law of Rhythm Influences Your Daily Life
    Pin this for later! How the Law of Rhythm Influences Your Daily Life

    The Law of Rhythm

    Everything in the universe is a cycle. The seasons. The moon. Your breath. You.

    Nothing stays in one state forever.

    These are the words I write in my journal in the early hours of a spring morning as the sun begins to rise, painting hints of pink across the sleepy blue sky. This, too, is a cycle, I think. The sun rising and setting, making space for the moon.

    From morning to night, dawn to dusk, and sunrise to sunset, each day’s cycle is perfect, measurable, and consistent.

    I’ve been thinking about the 12 Laws of the Universe a lot lately, but this one has been at the forefront of my mind for some time: the Law of Rhythm, which states that everything comes in cycles, and nothing stays in one state forever. 

    As I walk through my day, I search for cycles in places where I hadn’t noticed them before.

    For instance, the squirrels that visit the backyard are never there in the morning, but I can always count on them to make an appearance around noon, when they decide to search through the grass for hidden treats.

    And every month, I experience a burst of energy for several days in a row that has me doing, creating, building, and writing for hours at a time.

    Just yesterday, I was in the shower when a scene for the fiction story I’ve been working on started playing in my head. I saw every detail, and I heard the characters speaking like I’d unknowingly hit “play” on the remote control in my mind. The movie unfolded from behind my eyelids in dazzling color.

    And it didn’t stop there; a second scene started playing, too.

    I rushed out of the shower and pulled up a blank Google Doc to frantically type it all up before I forgot. Several pages of single-spaced lines quickly filled the white screen.

    Afterwards, I worked on a 3,000+ word blog article, then did some more creative writing in the evening. I woke up this morning and continued writing. And now, I’m here at my laptop, writing again. I am currently in an energized flow state. It feels exciting and invigorating, like the cells beneath my skin are all dancing in exuberance.

    But I know that it won’t last forever. This isn’t pessimism; this is part of the cycle. And the cycle, I’ve learned, is a good thing.

    In a few days, I’ll reach a point when the inspired ideas pause. I used to think there was something inherently wrong about this – like I had done something wrong to bring this state upon myself.

    But there is nothing wrong in surrendering to the pause. In fact, this is exactly right.

    So I’ll step back, let go, and allow myself to take a break until the inspired ideas return once more – which, they always do.

    This is my personal cycle: energized creating and restful pauses. Neither is better or worse than the other. Both are important. Both are needed.

    So I’ve learned to no longer cling on tightly to the energy or to the pause. I’ve discovered that instead of fighting it, I can become one with this flow. And when I do this, I find peace.

    This is only one of the many cycles I’ve watched unfold in my life.

    What cycles are unfolding in your own life? How can you embrace these cycles instead of trying to control the narrative? Below, we’ll explore the Law of Rhythm a little deeper and how it may play a part in your own everyday world.

    A quote by Zanna Keithley that says: Everything in the universe is in a cycle. The seasons. The moon. Your breath. You. Nothing stays in one state forever. That’s why everything feels so heavy: because you’re holding onto what you were meant to release. This experience was meant to teach you; you were never meant to carry the weight of it for so long. Honor the cycle you’re in by releasing what no longer serves you. Let it in, then let it go. Make space for a new season to come forth.

    The Law of Rhythm and Hardships vs. Ease

    What hardships are you currently experiencing in your life?

    And when difficulties arise, how do you respond? Are you able to remain grounded and at peace no matter how rocky and unstable things become? Or do you get overwhelmed by the stress of it all and worry that these hard times will last forever?

    If your answer is the latter, don’t judge or criticize yourself. I think most of us tend to get lost in the murky waters of hardships and difficulties. When you’re experiencing hard times, it’s hard to believe that brighter days will ever come again.

    But know this: it is a universal law that the difficult moments and hard times will not last.

    According to the Law of Rhythm, no hardship lasts forever. When you’re experiencing difficulties in your personal or professional life, know that it will pass.

    By understanding that this is just part of the cycle you’re in, you can relax and feel at peace knowing that the hardship will turn into ease just as summer turns into fall.

    And when things are going well, you become less likely to take this time for granted. You know that this period of ease may not last forever, and that’s okay. You’re able to honor the cycle and feel gratitude for all that you have in this moment.

    The only way a hardship can last any longer than it’s meant to is if you’re somehow holding onto it. There may even be times when the hardship has already passed, but you’re allowing it to still exist in your mind.

    For instance, if you’ve experienced difficulties in your relationship, you may have already talked them through with your partner, and things may be better now, but you’re still holding onto the emotions of the experience within.

    When you do this, it may feel like the hardship will never pass. This is when you must go within and uncover what you’re still holding onto, then allow yourself to let go of thoughts and emotions that no longer serve you.

    The Law of Rhythm and Doing vs. Being

    As I discussed above, I’ve learned that I experience energetic surges every month, and during this period, it feels like I can create forever.

    In general, I’m not someone who “relaxes” a lot. Writing is both my career and my hobby, so my brain is constantly churning, searching for the right ideas, words, and sentences to convey what’s in my head.

    But sometimes, I just need a break. I used to fight this because I believed the need for a break was a failure on my part. It took me a while to understand that this was part of the cycle. And when I surrendered to the cycle and stepped back from creating, eventually, when I did return to creating, my work would be even better because I gave myself that time.

    Sometimes, I do. Other times, I just am.

    This is all in accordance with the Law Of Rhythm.

    According to the Law of Rhythm, you will experience times of productivity and times of rest. You might also call these periods “times of doing” and “times of being.”

    Neither time is better or worse than the other, and both are needed in order for you to live your most authentic life.

    You might be able to see how this plays out in your own life. How do you feel when you work non-stop day after day without a moment to rest? Or conversely, how do you feel when you lay around on the couch for days or weeks at a time without actually doing anything productive?

    Some cultures may prioritize one thing or the other, but the truth is, both doing and being are needed in order for you to thrive. When you resist one or the other, you resist the laws of the universe and detract from your own highest good.

    Because I think many of us tend to uphold the “virtues” of productivity and doing at the expense of rest, I want to end this section with this: the next time you need to cancel plans, take a rest day, or spend time nurturing your soul, don’t feel guilty or try to resist.

    This is how you honor your own inner rhythm and cycle, and it is often the very best thing you can do not just for yourself but for all.

    The Law of Rhythm Journal Prompts

    As you’ve been reading through these sections, you may have already started thinking about how the Law of Rhythm plays a role in your own life. Below are a list of journal prompts you can use for deeper insight into the cycles that you experience and how you approach and react to each cycle.

    • What cycles do I see play out in my own life?
    • Are there any cycles I tend to resist, or that I’ve allowed myself to believe are inherently “wrong”?
    • How does it feel internally when I try to resist the cycles that unfold in my life?
    • What’s one example of a cycle of hardship vs. ease that I experience in my life? (This can be in regards to work, relationships, finances, creativity, or any other personal or professional area of your life.)
    • Considering what I know about the Law of Rhythm and cycles, how can I approach hardships and difficulties that appear in my life?
    • How do I see the cycle of doing vs. being unfold in my life? Do I experience resistance to either one?
    • How do I feel when I try to resist my own inner rhythm and cycles?
    • What mindset/attitude do I want to cultivate moving forward in regards to the Law of Rhythm and the cycles I experience in my world?

    What are some of the cycles that you’ve experienced in your own life? How does understanding the Law of Rhythm influence your mindset when experiencing hardships? Leave your questions and comments in the comment box below!

    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. These journal prompts are all about you: what makes you special, how you make space in your life for self-love and self-care, and what practices you can incorporate into your life to cultivate even more unconditional love within.

    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.

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.
