Nowadays, manifestation is a word that is heard in abundance- just hop on TikTok for 5 minutes and you’ll hear it used in practically every other video.
And although the heightened exposure of this technique has made it seem less valuable, the fact is, there is real truth behind the word.
So what is manifestation?
Think of it like this- you have a dream. Maybe it’s to be rich, maybe it’s to find your soulmate.
These things may seem unrealistic or impossible to some, but with the power of manifestation, the impossible becomes possible.
To explain it a little better it’s best to turn to the notion known as, “The Law Of Attraction”.
The Law of Attraction teaches us that our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality, and that we have the power to attract anything we desire into our lives.
If we repeat something enough times and send that energy into the universe, the universe will align.
I know, seems too good to be true, right?
I, too, was once a skeptic. That was until I experienced the power of manifestation myself.
For years I wanted to be a successful writer and spiritual guide but in a global and competitive world, it wasn’t easy.
I would easily get discouraged and felt like my dreams were never going to come true.
However, all of this changed when I began manifestation journaling.
That’s right- simply by writing down “I am abundant and successful at what I do” on a daily basis I quite literally shaped my reality.
And you can too.
With a small amount of time, an open mind and a big dream, the world can be at your disposal.
And don’t worry if you’re not sure how to approach it.
In this article, I’ll be diving deep into the world of manifestation journaling, and provide tips as well as ideas to get you started.
So grab your journal, get comfy, and let’s explore the magic of manifestation.
The life of your dreams is waiting for you.
What Is a Manifestation Journal?
Before we get into the actual writing aspect of a manifestation journal, it’s good to understand what it actually is.
Essentially, a manifestation journal is a tool that can be used to help you manifest your desires, goals, and intentions.
It is a type of journal that is specifically designed to help you focus your thoughts and intentions towards what you want to achieve in life.
As previously stated, the process of manifestation involves using the power of your thoughts and emotions to attract what you desire into your life.
By focusing your thoughts and emotions towards your goals, you can attract the people, resources, and opportunities that you need to achieve them.
And a manifestation journal is a powerful tool that can help you with this process.
It allows you to create a written record of your intentions, goals, and desires.
By writing down your goals and intentions, you are creating a visual representation of what you want to achieve.
In your manifestation journal, you can write down anything that you want to manifest in your life.
This could include anything from personal goals such as improving your health or finances, to professional goals such as advancing your career or starting your own business.
To create a manifestation journal, you will need a notebook or journal that you can dedicate to this purpose. It’s important to choose a journal that you feel drawn to and that inspires you to write.
Once you have your journal, you can start writing.
Here are a variety of effective approaches you can take when manifest journaling:
- Write down your goals and intentions. Be as specific as possible and use positive language. For example, instead of saying “I don’t want to be in debt anymore,” write “I am financially free and live a life of abundance.
- You can also create daily or weekly affirmations that reinforce your intentions. Affirmations are positive statements that help you focus your thoughts and emotions towards your goals. You can write down affirmations such as “I am attracting abundance into my life” or “I am capable of achieving my dreams.”
- Another way to use your manifestation journal is to create a vision board. A vision board is a collage of images and words that represent your goals and desires. You can cut out pictures from magazines or print out images from the internet and paste them into your journal.
- In addition to writing down your goals and intentions, you can also use your manifestation journal to track your progress. Write down any positive changes or synchronicities that occur in your life as you work towards your goals. This will help you stay motivated and focused on your journey.
What Is The Law Of Attraction?
Manifestation and the Law of Attraction are closely related concepts.
The Law of Attraction is a universal law that states that like attracts like. This means that the thoughts and emotions that you put out into the universe will attract similar experiences and situations into your life.
Manifestation is the process of using the Law of Attraction to bring your desires, goals, and intentions into reality. It involves focusing your thoughts and emotions towards what you want to achieve, and using the power of your mind to attract the people, resources, and opportunities that you need to make it happen.
In essence, manifestation is a way of working with the Law of Attraction to bring about positive changes in your life. By focusing your thoughts and emotions towards what you want, you are creating a vibration that attracts similar vibrations back to you.
This can manifest in the form of new opportunities, people, or circumstances that help you achieve your goals.
One of the key principles of the Law of Attraction is that you are a powerful creator of your own reality.
This means that you have the power to attract and manifest whatever you want in life.
However, to do this effectively, you need to align your thoughts, emotions, and actions towards your goals.
Manifestation can be seen as a practical application of the Law of Attraction.
By using techniques such as visualization, affirmations, and gratitude, you can train your mind to focus on what you want, and attract the resources and opportunities that you need to make it happen.
When I began manifest journaling, I did just this- I reinforced and embodied success until I actually became it.
Training your mind in this way can be difficult but if I can give you one piece of advice it’s to know your value.
Understand what you bring to the world and that you are deserving of everything you wish for and more.
How can you use the law of attraction in journaling?
As previously mentioned, journaling is a powerful tool that can be used to help you align your thoughts, emotions, and actions with your goals and intentions.
When combined with the Law of Attraction, journaling can be even more effective in helping you manifest what you want in life.
Here are some ways that you can use the Law of Attraction in journaling:
- Set clear intentions: One of the key principles of the Law of Attraction is that you need to be clear about what you want in order to manifest it. When journaling, take the time to set clear intentions and write them down in detail. Be specific about what you want to achieve, and focus on the positive aspects of your desires.
- Visualize your desires: Visualization is a powerful technique that can help you align your thoughts and emotions with your desires. When journaling, take the time to visualize what it would feel like to achieve your goals. Write down the details of what you see, hear, and feel in your visualization.
- Practice gratitude: Gratitude is an important aspect of the Law of Attraction. When you focus on what you are grateful for, you attract more positive experiences into your life. When journaling, take the time to write down what you are grateful for each day. This can help you shift your focus towards the positive aspects of your life and attract more of what you want.
- Use affirmations: Affirmations are positive statements that help you focus your thoughts and emotions towards your goals. When journaling, write down affirmations that align with your desires. For example, if your goal is to start your own business, you could write an affirmation like “I am a successful business owner.”
- Track your progress: Journaling can also help you track your progress towards your goals. Write down any positive changes or synchronicities that occur in your life as you work towards your goals. This can help you stay motivated and focused on your journey.
How To Write A Manifestation Journal
Step 1: Setting a Clear Intention for Your Manifestation Journal
Step one of starting a manifestation journal is to set a clear intention for what you want to achieve. This means identifying a specific goal or desire that you want to manifest in your life. The more specific and detailed your intention is, the easier it will be to focus your thoughts and emotions on it.
To set a clear intention, ask yourself what you want to achieve or experience in your life.
It could be a material goal, such as a new job or a new home, or it could be a more intangible goal, such as improved relationships or a greater sense of purpose in your life.
Once you have identified your intention, write it down in your manifestation journal. Be as specific and detailed as possible.
For example, if your goal is to find a new job, write down the specific type of job you want, the salary range, the location, and any other important details.
By setting a clear intention in your manifestation journal, you are taking the first step towards manifesting your desires.
You are also creating a powerful focus for your thoughts and emotions, which can help you attract the people, opportunities, and resources you need to achieve your goals.
Step Two: Create a Quiet and Comfortable Space for Your Manifestation Journaling
Creating a quiet and comfortable space is an important step when starting a manifestation journal.
The right environment can help you feel more relaxed and focused, making it easier to connect with your desires and intentions.
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can write without distractions. It could be a cozy corner of your home or a quiet outdoor spot.
Make sure the lighting is adequate and that you have everything you need, such as your journal, pen, and any other materials you might want to use, such as stickers, colored pens, or inspirational quotes.
Creating a dedicated space for your manifestation journaling can also help you establish a routine and make it easier to stick to your practice.
Choose a time of day when you can journal without interruptions, whether it’s early in the morning or late at night.
Make it a daily habit to spend at least a few minutes writing in your journal, even if it’s just a few sentences.
By creating a quiet and comfortable space for your manifestation journaling, you are setting yourself up for success and creating a positive environment that supports your goals and intentions.
Step Three: Practice Deep Breathing to Calm Your Mind and Focus Your Energy
Before you start writing in your manifestation journal, take a few moments to practice deep breathing. This can help you relax and get into a calm, focused state of mind, which is essential for manifesting your desires.
Sit in a comfortable position and take a few slow, deep breaths. Inhale deeply through your nose, filling your lungs with air, and exhale slowly through your mouth, releasing any tension or stress in your body.
Repeat this process several times until you feel relaxed and centered.
As you breathe, focus your thoughts on your intention for your manifestation journal. Imagine yourself achieving your goal or desire and experiencing all the positive emotions associated with it.
This can help you align your thoughts and emotions with your desires and attract them more easily.
By practicing deep breathing before writing in your manifestation journal, you are creating a calm and focused state of mind that can help you manifest your desires more easily.
You are also sending a powerful signal to the universe that you are ready to receive the abundance and prosperity you desire.
Step Four: Write in Your Manifestation Journal with Positive Energy and Emotion
When writing in your manifestation journal, it’s important to do so with positive energy and emotion. This means focusing on the feelings of joy, gratitude, and excitement that you will experience when you achieve your desires.
Start by writing down your intention in a positive and affirmative way.
Use language that affirms that your goal is already manifesting in your life, rather than focusing on the lack or absence of your desire. For example, instead of writing “I want to find a new job,” write “I am grateful for my new job that allows me to use my skills and talents in a fulfilling way.”
As you write, focus on the positive emotions associated with your intention. Imagine yourself experiencing the joy, excitement, and gratitude that come with achieving your desires.
Allow yourself to feel these emotions deeply and fully, and let them guide your writing.
By writing with positive energy and emotion, you are aligning your thoughts and emotions with your desires and creating a powerful vibration that can attract what you want into your life.
You are also sending a clear message to the universe that you are ready to receive your desires and are open to receiving abundance and prosperity.
Step Five: Use Visualization Techniques to Amplify Your Manifestation Practice
Visualization is a powerful technique that can help you amplify the effects of your manifestation journaling practice. It involves using your imagination to create a mental picture of yourself already having achieved your desires.
To practice visualization, start by closing your eyes and taking a few deep breaths.
Then, imagine yourself already having achieved your intention. Visualize yourself experiencing all the positive emotions associated with it, such as joy, gratitude, and excitement.
Use all your senses to create a vivid mental image of your desired outcome. Imagine what it looks like, feels like, and sounds like.
Use your imagination to create a detailed and realistic mental picture that feels as if it is already happening.
As you visualize, focus on the positive emotions associated with your intention. Allow yourself to feel these emotions deeply and fully, and let them guide your thoughts and actions.
By using visualization techniques in conjunction with your manifestation journaling practice, you are creating a powerful combination that can help you manifest your desires more quickly and easily.
Visualization helps you focus your thoughts and emotions on your intention, while your journaling practice helps you clarify your goals and stay focused on your desires.
Together, they can help you create a powerful vibration of positive energy that can attract abundance and prosperity into your life.
Crystals are believed to have unique properties that can help amplify the effects of your manifestation practice.
Each crystal has its own energy frequency and properties that can enhance specific intentions and desires.
For example, clear quartz is often used for manifesting because it amplifies the energy and intention of other crystals and helps to focus and clarify your thoughts and intentions (this is one of my personal favorites).
Citrine is also a popular choice for manifesting abundance and prosperity, as it is said to enhance creativity, confidence, and personal power.
To use crystals in conjunction with your manifestation journaling practice, you can choose a crystal that resonates with your intention and keep it nearby while you write.
You can hold the crystal in your hand or place it on your desk or table.
Some people also like to meditate with their crystals or carry them with them throughout the day to help align their thoughts and emotions with their desires.
Step Six: Practice Gratitude and Letting Go
Practicing gratitude and letting go are important aspects of the manifestation process.
Gratitude helps you focus on what you already have and the positive aspects of your life, which can attract more abundance and prosperity.
Letting go helps you release any attachment or resistance to your desires, which can also help them manifest more easily.
It wasn’t until I began actively practicing gratitude that I started really seeing a difference in my manifestations.
And it’s easier than you might think.
To practice gratitude, take a few moments each day to reflect on the things in your life that you are grateful for.
Write down a list of things that you appreciate and feel thankful for, such as your health, your relationships, your job, your home, or your hobbies.
By focusing on the positive aspects of your life, you are creating a vibration of positivity that can attract more good things into your life.
To practice letting go, try to release any attachment or resistance to your desires.
This means trusting that the universe will bring you what you need at the right time, and letting go of any fear or anxiety about not getting what you want.
Focus on the present moment and the things you can control, rather than worrying about the future.
You can also use affirmations or mantras to help you let go of resistance and trust in the universe. For example, you could repeat affirmations such as “I trust that the universe has my back” or “I am open to receiving abundance and prosperity in all areas of my life.”
By practicing gratitude and letting go, you are creating a positive and receptive energy field that can help you manifest your desires more easily and effortlessly.
Step Seven: Take Inspired Action
While manifestation is a powerful tool, it’s important to remember that it is not a magic solution that will bring your desires to you without any effort on your part.
To manifest your desires, you need to take inspired action towards your goals.
Inspired action is action that feels aligned with your desires and feels natural and easy to you.
It is action that comes from a place of inspired thought or intuition, rather than from a place of force or obligation.
To take inspired action, start by setting small, achievable goals that are aligned with your intention.
These goals should be specific, measurable, and achievable within a reasonable timeframe. Then, take action towards these goals, one step at a time.
As you take action, pay attention to how it feels. If it feels joyful, exciting, and aligned with your desires, it’s likely inspired action.
If it feels forced, difficult, or out of alignment with your desires, it may not be the right action for you.
Remember to stay flexible and open to new opportunities and possibilities that may arise as you take action towards your goals.
The universe often has a way of bringing unexpected opportunities and synchronicities into our lives when we are aligned with our desires.
By taking inspired action towards your goals, you are showing the universe that you are committed to your desires and are willing to do the work to make them a reality.
This can help to amplify the effects of your manifestation practice and bring your desires to you more quickly and easily.
Questions To Ask Yourself
If you’re feeling a little stuck, here are some questions you can ask yourself when writing in your manifestation journal:
- What do I want to manifest in my life?
- How will I feel when I have manifested this desire?
- What actions can I take to move closer to my desired outcome?
- What limiting beliefs or fears may be blocking me from manifesting my desire, and how can I release them?
- What inspired ideas or opportunities have come my way as a result of my manifestation practice?
- What signs or synchronicities have I noticed that show my desire is on its way?
- What am I grateful for in my life right now, and how can I use this gratitude to attract more abundance and prosperity?
- What positive affirmations or mantras can I use to reinforce my belief in my ability to manifest my desires?
- How can I incorporate self-care practices into my manifestation practice to help me stay aligned with my desires?
- How can I trust in the universe to bring me what I need at the right time, and let go of any attachment or resistance to my desires?
By regularly asking yourself these and other empowering questions in your manifestation journal, you can deepen your understanding of your desires, release any limiting beliefs or fears that may be blocking your progress, and align your thoughts, emotions, and actions with your desired outcomes.
This can help you manifest your dreams into reality with greater ease and grace.
Use Journal Prompts
Journaling prompts can be a helpful tool when manifesting through journaling, as they can help you dive deeper into your desires and uncover any limiting beliefs or fears that may be holding you back.
Here are some examples of journaling prompts you can use in your manifestation journal:
- What limiting beliefs or fears do I have around manifesting my desires, and how can I release them?
- What inspired action can I take today to move closer to my desired outcome?
- How will I feel when I have manifested my desire, and what steps can I take to cultivate those feelings now?
- What signs or synchronicities have I noticed that show my desire is on its way?
- What self-care practices can I incorporate into my manifestation practice to help me stay aligned with my desires?
- What positive affirmations or mantras can I use to reinforce my belief in my ability to manifest my desires?
- How can I surrender my desires to the universe and trust that they will be brought to me in the perfect way and at the perfect time?
- What gratitude practices can I use to attract more abundance and prosperity into my life?
- How can I stay focused on my desired outcome without becoming attached or obsessed with the outcome?
- What lessons have I learned from past manifestations, and how can I apply those lessons to my current manifestation practice?
By using journaling prompts like these in your manifestation journal, you can gain greater clarity and insight into your desires, release any limiting beliefs or fears that may be blocking your progress, and cultivate a more positive and empowering mindset towards your manifestation practice.
Manifestation Journal Ideas
- Create a “dream list” of everything you desire to manifest in your life, both big and small. This could include material possessions, experiences, relationships, personal growth, and more. Write down each item on your list, and describe in detail how you will feel when you have manifested each desire.
- Write a gratitude list for everything you already have in your life, and all the ways in which you are already abundant. This can help shift your focus from scarcity to abundance, and attract more of what you want into your life.
- Set a specific intention for your manifestation practice, such as “I intend to manifest abundance and prosperity in all areas of my life.” Write down this intention in your journal, and repeat it to yourself as often as you like.
- Use affirmations to reinforce your belief in your ability to manifest your desires. Write down positive affirmations that resonate with you, such as “I am worthy of abundance and prosperity,” “I trust in the universe to bring me what I need,” or “I am capable of manifesting my dreams into reality.” Repeat these affirmations to yourself regularly, and write them down in your journal as well.
- Write down any limiting beliefs or fears you may have around manifesting your desires, and then challenge them with positive affirmations or other evidence that proves those beliefs are false. For example, if you believe that you are not worthy of abundance, write down evidence to the contrary, such as your past accomplishments, positive feedback from others, or anything else that proves you are deserving of success.
- Keep a record of any signs, synchronicities, or inspired ideas that come to you as a result of your manifestation practice. Write down any coincidences or “coincidences” that seem to indicate your desires are on their way, and reflect on how you feel about them.
- Use visualization exercises to help you feel as if your desires have already been manifested. Close your eyes and imagine yourself already living your dream life, feeling all the emotions that come with it. Write down your visualizations in your journal, and revisit them whenever you need a boost of inspiration or motivation.
- Create or download a playlist of songs that inspire you and make you feel good, and listen to it regularly while you journal or visualize your desires. Music can have a powerful effect on our emotions and can help us stay focused on our goals. Choose songs that resonate with your desires and make you feel as if you have already achieved them. As you listen, allow yourself to feel the emotions of having already manifested your desires, and write down any inspired ideas or thoughts that come to you while you listen.
Remember, there is no one right way to manifest through journaling. Use these ideas as a starting point, and feel free to customize your manifestation practice to fit your unique needs and desires.
The most important thing is to stay consistent and keep an open mind to the possibilities of the universe.
To enhance your manifestation practice even further, try implementing one or more of these next steps:
- Meditation: Meditation is a powerful tool that can help you quiet your mind, connect with your inner wisdom, and raise your vibration. Consider adding a meditation practice to your daily routine, either in the morning or before bed.
- Crystal jewelry: Crystals are believed to hold powerful energies that can help amplify your intentions and attract positive outcomes into your life. Consider wearing crystal jewelry, such as a necklace or bracelet, that aligns with your intentions and desires.
- Music: Music is a powerful tool that can help shift your energy and raise your vibration. Create a playlist of songs that inspire and uplift you, and listen to it while journaling or engaging in other manifestation practices.
- Mandala coloring books: Mandala coloring books can be a great way to enhance your manifestation practice and tap into your creativity. Coloring can be a meditative and relaxing practice that can help you connect with your inner wisdom and manifest your desires.
- Take action: While manifestation journaling is a powerful tool, it’s important to also take action towards your goals. Start by setting small, achievable goals that align with your desires, and take consistent action towards them.
- Trust the universe: Remember that the universe has your back, and that everything happens for a reason. Trust that what you desire will come to you in its own time and way, and release any attachment to specific outcomes.
Manifestation journaling is a simple yet powerful practice that can help you achieve your goals and attract positivity into your life.
By setting clear intentions, using affirmations, visualization techniques, and journaling prompts, you can reprogram your mind and focus your energy on what you want to manifest.
It’s important to stay consistent and committed to your practice, and to let go of any limiting beliefs or negative self-talk that may hold you back.
Remember to trust in the universe and have faith that what you desire will come to you in its own time and way.
By making manifestation journaling a regular part of your self-care routine, you can create the life you truly want and deserve.
