Manifestations Journal: How to Create and Use a Visual Journal for Manifesting Your Dreams
What is a manifestations journal? A manifestations journal is simply a visual diary of your dreams and goals. It can be used to track your progress, as well as to manifest your desires into reality. Creating and using a manifestations journal can help you stay focused on what you want, and make the process of achieving your dreams more fun and exciting! In this blog post, we will discuss how to create and use your own manifestations journal.
The power of journaling
Even before adding in the addition of manifestations, journaling is a very powerful tool for helping you to achieve your goals. Studies have shown that writing down your goals increases the likelihood of achieving them by up to 42%. When you add in manifestations, you are tapping into the power of the Law of Attraction, which states that like attracts like. This means, that what you focus on expands. So, if you focus on your dreams and goals, you are more likely to achieve them.
Creating your manifestations journal
Now that we have discussed the benefits of journaling and manifestations, let’s talk about how to create your own manifestations journal. You can use any type of notebook or journal for this purpose. I like to use a blank notebook so that I can add in my own illustrations and designs. However, you can also use a lined notebook if you prefer.
Additionally, I find it beneficial to crack open a brand new, never before used notebook for a particularly lofty desire. This makes it feel as if I’m starting with a blank canvas on which I can bring my dreams to life.
Start by saying thanks
Once you have chosen your notebook, it’s time to start filling it with your manifestations! I like to start each journal entry with a gratitude list. This helps to set the tone for what I want to manifest. For example, if I am trying to manifest more money, I might write down things like “I am grateful for my current job and the money it provides me. I am grateful for my health, which allows me to work. I am grateful for my home, which is a safe and comfortable place to live.”
Even if that sounds backward, giving thanks for something you’ve yet to receive helps you to focus on the positive aspects of what you desire, rather than on the lack thereof. It also shows the Universe that you are grateful for what you have, and that you are ready to receive more.
Add in your manifestations
After your gratitude list, it’s time to start adding in your manifestations! I like to write mine down as if they have already happened. For example, “I am so excited that I was able to manifest a new car! It’s exactly what I wanted and it’s perfect for me. I am so grateful to the Universe for bringing this into my life.”
You can also add in things like “I am manifesting a new job that I love. It is the perfect position for me and I am so excited to start work on Monday.”
Remember, the more specific you can be, the better. The Universe likes specifics!
Visualize your manifestations
Another way to add power to your manifestations is to visualize them as if they have already happened. This helps to increase the energy and frequency around your desire, making it more likely to manifest. To do this, simply close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Visualize your manifestations as if they are already in your life. For example, see yourself driving your new car or starting your first day at your new job. Really feel the excitement and joy of achieving these things.
Release it to the Universe
Once you have written down your manifestations and visualized them, it’s time to release them to the Universe. This is an important step, as it allows you to let go of any attachment to the outcome. Simply say “I release this desire into the Universe and I trust that it will come to me in perfect timing.” Then, let it go and know that it is on its way.
Go the extra step with a vision board
If you are not familiar with vision boards, they are simply a collection of images and words that represent what you want to manifest. You can find images in magazines, online, or even create your own. Images are powerful for visual people, as they help to increase the energy and frequency around your manifestations.
Normally, we suggest using a poster board for a vision board, but in this scenario we recommend using one the pages in your journal. This way, you can keep all of your manifestations in one place and refer to them often.
To create your vision board, start by finding images that represent what you want to manifest. For example, if you are wanting to manifest a new car, find an image of the specific make and model that you desire. If you are wanting to manifest a new job, find an image of yourself doing something that you love.
Once you have collected your images, glue or tape them onto a page in your journal. Then, add in any words or phrases that represent what you want to manifest. For example, if you are wanting to manifest more money, you might add in phrases like “abundance,” “prosperity,” and “financial freedom.”
Refer to your manifestations daily
One of the most important things you can do to increase the chances of manifesting your desires is to refer to them often. This helps to keep them at the forefront of your mind, which allows you to put more focus and attention on them.
I recommend reading through your manifestations every morning and every evening. You can also carry a copy of them with you throughout the day to refer to as needed. The more you can focus on what you want, the more likely it is to manifest!
Creating and using a manifestations journal is a powerful tool that can help you to manifest your dreams. By taking the time to write down your desires, visualize them, and release them to the Universe, you are increasing your chances of making them a reality. Be sure to be consistent and patient, as manifestations can sometimes take time. Trust that the Universe is working on your behalf and know that your manifestations are on their way!
