Writing is a truly powerful tool for manifestation. Here you will find the most effective tips that will help you on your manifestation journey. You will discover everything you need to live the life you have always dreamed of!
How Manifesting Works?
Whether or not we are aware of it, everything in the Universe is energy. Dense energy creates the tangible, physical world and matter.
Before anything is expressed in a physical form, it takes shape in subtle worlds in the form of vibration. Your thoughts, words, actions, and emotions shape these energy patterns – vibrations.
Therefore your emotions and thoughts are very powerful as they launch energy patterns that later express themselves as events and situations in the material world.
We often believe that our thoughts and beliefs are the results of the situations we are in, but we must recognize that it also works the other way around. The thoughts we think and the beliefs we hold impact how we experience reality and events that happen in our lives.
10 Steps to Writing a Manifestation
Manifesting by writing is an exciting journey that gives you the tools and keys for shaping your future. If you are ready to take your life into your hands, follow this in-depth guide.
Not only will it help you manifest what you desire, but it will also launch a life-long adventure of getting to know yourself and building a strong and fulfilling relationship with yourself.
1. Manifestation Journal
When it comes to manifestation, your inner state is the most important.
To start working on manifestation by writing, you need to first pick the notebook that best reflects your mood and taste. It should be an especially beautiful notebook that makes you feel happy whenever you look at it and pick it up to write in it.
Think of it as your manifestation journal. If it is beautiful to look at, you will want to use it often.
2. Create a Writing Ritual
Depending on how much free time you have, you can start this as a daily, weekly, or bi-weekly practice. Pick a time of the day that works for you and when you can be by yourself, only with your thoughts.
Switch off your phone and make sure nobody will bother you. Mark this in your planner as “Me Time,” time that you devote fully to yourself and visualize your future.
3. Create a Designated Manifesting Space
Create an inspiring environment and surround yourself with things that inspire you and make you feel joyful and elated.
Think of things that bring joy to your senses.
- Bring fire elements into your space. A beautiful candle, or even a fireplace if you have access to one, will help strengthen your connection with the fire element and will bring power to your manifesting ability. If you pick a candle, pick it in a color that resonates with you the most.
- What do you want to hear? Think of music that won’t be distracting, and make sure you pick a music service with no ads, so it won’t disturb your listening experience. Classical piano music, mantras, sounds of nature, or maybe frequency music? All of these can help you manifest more effectively.
- What do you want to smell? You can pick a scented candle or essential oils to apply to your pulse points. Read about essential oils and what frequency and potential each of them carries. They can help you with your manifestations!
- What feels best to your touch? Make sure the temperature in the room is comfortable. You can always bring your favorite blanket with you to feel its warm and soft touch on your skin.
- What inspires you? Surround yourself with items that inspire and uplift you. A beautiful painting, figurines that have a special meaning to you. Bring it all with you!
- Vision Board. Start clipping or printing images that inspire you and are related to what you want to manifest in your life. You can find a lot of inspiring content on Pinterest and save it to your phone and even set it as a background image for your phone. However, printing them and keeping them in your Manifestation Journal will make you inspired to use your manifestation journal more often.
- Flowers. You can even go an extra step and make sure there are flowers present. Flowers always uplift the spirit and give you the extra inspiration that helps you manifest effortlessly.
4. Practice Gratitude
One of the most important steps in manifestation work is gratitude. Gratitude is an inner state we feel for that which we already have. Write a list of all things and experiences you are grateful for in your life. Especially things you might be taking for granted.
Any experience in our lives happens for a reason, and it is there to teach us something. Grief can teach us compassion, pain can teach us a lot about love and patience. Anything that happens to you is there to make your soul wiser and stronger.
When you look at things this way, which life experiences were you previously thought of as negative that you could start seeing as a blessing in disguise? Write all of these down in your journal.
Focus on your feelings when writing gratitude lists. Don’t think of what you don’t have yet, but focus on what you do have! Allow yourself to feel deeply every positive sensation you experience and allow yourself to be overcome with gratitude.
Do this daily to increase your manifestation abilities.
5. Write a List of Everything That Is Taking Up Your Energy
It takes a lot of energy to manifest. Therefore, before you can start manifesting by writing, you have to purify your life, thoughts, and time of everything that is taking up extra space and energy. The first thing to write in your notebook is a list of all things that require your energy.
Write a list of unfinished tasks that require your attention. An unfinished project, an unfulfilled promise, and a book you have started reading. Write all of these down. All these things take up your subconscious space.
In front of each of these things, write how much time you need to finish the task. An hour? A day? Maybe a week? Be realistic about it and give yourself deadlines for each task.
Before you proceed with the next steps, you should tie up all loose ends and come back to your manifestation journal with a clean slate.
6. Shadow Work
The next step will take a lot of effort, but the effort will be worth it. You can skip it if you want to focus on small manifestations in your life.
However, if you truly want to make a meaningful shift in your life, this is the most important step. Explore the concept of shadow work and start your journey of inner transformation.
It is tempting and common for us to look at the outside world as the cause of our troubles and problems, but once we start looking within and exploring the depths of our subconscious, we will find lots of resources that were previously unavailable to us.
Shadow work means exploring and integrating your shadows. The subconscious aspects that you don’t know about or would rather not accept in yourself. Keeping them “locked up” takes up a lot of your energy.
Once you start freeing this energy, you will be able to use it to manifest the life you desire.
7. Write Down Your Desires
When you feel ready, take your Manifestation Journal notebook and write a list of things you truly desire. Things that make you excited, joyful, and truly inspired to have and experience.
8. Check How “Clean” Your Goals Are
Before you start manifesting, look at each goal and ask yourself – “Why is it that I want this?”. Your answer to this question will be crucial.
If you want something to impress someone else, to be better than someone else, to prove something, or to compensate for lack of something, you should not focus on these desires, and you should return to step 5 – Shadow Work.
To be used in manifestation work, your desires must:
- Do good to you;
- Do good to others;
- Not infringe on anyone’s free will;
- Come from the highest aspects of yourself.
After you find which desires match all these points, these will be the desires you can continue working on in your manifestation process.
9. How Will It Make You Feel?
Think about your desires and write down how you will feel when you achieve them. Write it down in detail.
Will you feel a calm sense of satisfaction? A childish sense of adventure, excitement, and joy?
Think about this and be as detailed as possible. Observe your sensations when thinking about each of your goals.
10. Bring That Feeling Into Your Present Life
The feeling is the key to manifestation work. When you have discovered how you will feel once you have the desired things and events happen in your life, your task is to bring as much of this feeling to your present moment, regardless of your circumstances.
It might seem counterintuitive, but it is the most important point in manifestation.
Write a new list in your Manifestation Journal of things you can do now, in your current circumstances, that bring you as close as possible to feeling the positive feelings you will feel when your dreams and wishes will come true.
Think of all things you can do in your daily life, no matter how small, that will give you feelings of joy, happiness, gratitude, and inspiration.
Your happiness is in your own hands. You can manifest a life you desire with your inner state. There is always a reason we want something, and that reason is that we believe it will make us feel good and bring us happiness.
By bringing as much as possible of this feeling into our current life, regardless of circumstances, we will create a vibrational match, and we will attract to our life the situations, people, and experiences that are necessary to manifest exactly that which we have been desiring.
