This post is all about how to start a powerful manifestation journal to transform your life!
What Is a Manifestation Journal?
As the name suggests, a manifestation journal is a journal that helps bring your dreams into reality. If you’re reading this, I’m sure you’re quite familiar with the law of attraction. As well as the hundreds of different techniques people swear by to manifest their wildest desires. And keeping a manifesting journal is just one of them.
I will touch on this topic more in future posts. But I truly believe that there is no one “correct” technique that can help you manifest your dreams. These several different techniques are just a way to help you “believe” and persuade your subconscious mind of the possibility of a new and better reality.
However, I think keeping a manifesting journal is super awesome! Because it not only serves as a vision board, but also helps you stay hyper-focused on your goals. Lastly, my favorite part of keeping a journal for manifesting is to be able to look back years from now and witness how the whole universe has truly conspired to help you achieve your wildest dreams!

How to Start Manifesting Your Dreams With a Journal?
When writing in your manifestation journal, it’s super important to not let your limiting beliefs stop you from asking for what you truly want.
If you want to manifest a monthly income of $50,000 USD, write it down!
I know it can be super scary and almost intimidating to put these seemingly “hard-to-achieve” or “out-of-reach” goals onto paper. But trust me, years from now, you’ll look back and think, wow! I can’t believe I used to think these goals were impossible. Look at me now!!
So please don’t hold back or think small when it comes to writing down your vision and dreams in the journal. Even though your conscious mind might have resistance at the moment. As you continue to think about your goals and live in the end, one day, you’ll realize that you CAN truly achieve whatever you set your mind to.
Journal Techniques to Speed Up Your Manifestation
There’s no right way to structure or organize your manifestation journal. The most important thing is to feel good when you’re writing in the journal. You can journal every morning if you like, or maybe just once every six months. The main purpose of keeping a manifesting planner or journal is to help you stay vibrationally aligned and focused on the end goal.
Even though I’m sharing a few journaling techniques with you, don’t feel pressured to follow them exactly. Make this process your own and make it fun! Remember: Techniques don’t matter as much as how you feel internally!
The 369 Manifesting Method
The 369 method is a technique where you write down your manifestations 3 times in the morning. 6 times in the evening. And 9 times at night. So, why the numbers 3, 6, and 9, you might ask? According to the genius inventor, Nikola Tesla, these three numbers hold the key to the universe. In his experiments studying circles, he realized that no matter how many divided one, the results would always come out to 3, 6, or 9.
When using this method, it’s important to not overly obsess over your manifestation. After each repetition, release your desires into the universe and trust that it is already yours.
Write in Your Gratitude Journal Each Morning
Express gratitude for your current reality is one of the best ways to speed up your manifestations. When you appreciate what you have now, you begin to raise your vibration to match that of your dream reality.
When writing in your gratitude journal, remember to do it out of genuine appreciation. Sometimes, we can become so obsessed with manifesting our goals that we would “pretend” to be grateful for our life now just so we can quickly manifest a better reality. (I’ve definitely been guilty of this lol)

The 55×5 Technique
This method is quite similar to the 369 method. But this time, you’ll be writing your affirmations down 55 times for 5 days straight. I know…it’s a lot haha! But since you’re repeating one single affirmation almost 300 times, this method could be great for manifesting a super-specific thing. When we focus all of our attention on one thing, the energy grows, hence many swear by this technique.
When writing down your affirmations in the journal, it’s also important to feel the emotions of living in the end. Imagine in your mind what it would feel like if your manifestations were already a reality. Whether it’s gratitude, abundance, or excitement, be sure to connect with that emotion while doing this technique.
Recognize Negative Beliefs
What I personally LOVE to do in my manifestation journals is to turn my limiting beliefs around. First, I write out all of the negative beliefs I have around a certain topic. Let’s use money as an example:
- I must work hard for money
- I’m greedy for wanting to make more money, I should be content for what I have now
- It takes a long time to accumulate wealth
- I’m not smart enough to come up with a good money-making idea
After listing out all of these limiting beliefs, I’ll go ahead and cross them out with a red pen. Then, right underneath these limiting beliefs, I’d write out the exact opposite (positive beliefs).
- I can become wealthy by providing value and working smart
- Having more money will allow me to help more people and expand my creativity on Earth
- Wealth can often be achieved by taking one right step or making one good investment
- If they could do it, I could do it too!
I absolutely love this manifestation technique because it helps me quickly recognize my mental blocks and change them immediately. By doing this regularly, slowly and surely, you’ll begin to reprogram your subconscious mind for success!
Keep a Vision Board Journal
So, what is a vision board? Well, it’s a visual representation of your dreams and goals. On this board, you can write, draw, or paste pictures of everything that visually represents your manifestations being fulfilled. I personally love keeping a mini vision board in my journal. Whenever I’m feeling down, I just flip to that page and remind myself of all the manifestations that will soon come into my life.
P.S. I love using Pinterest for inspiration when it comes to finding pictures to add to my board!

Dream Life Scripting
Dream life scripting means writing out the life you want, as if it’s already happening right here and right now. By doing this, you’re essentially changing the timeline of these events through your words and the vibration you emit. Have you always had a hard time visualizing your dream in vivid detail every night before bed? Maybe this method could work better for you.
Scripting helps you fully feel the emotion and energy of what you want, which makes it super powerful. When writing about your dream life, truly “feel” it happening and immerse yourself in the story. Most importantly, instead of coming from a place of need and desperation, channel the energy of relief and abundance.
Use a Journaling Prompt
If you literally have no idea what to write about, ran out of ideas, or maybe just need some creative inspiration, use a journaling prompt! Here are a few to help you get started:
- What action will you focus on today to create the future you want?
- How does the ideal version of you show up in his/her everyday life?
- What are you excited to manifest in the next year/5 years/10 years?
- List 10 ways you are a money or love magnet
- What is something you’ve been overthinking about? Any fears, worries, or resistance? Let it out.
- If you could be anything, do anything, and have anything, how would you live your life? Describe in detail
- You just got the best phone call of your life… What awesome news did you receive?
- Are you pushing yourself to your fullest potential? If not, why?
- What fears are holding me back from living my best life?
Manifest by Writing in the Past Tense
This is very similar to the scripting method mentioned above. Except, this time, we’re writing in the past tense. Some say that writing your dreams and goals in the past tense helps your subconscious mind accept it as truth faster.
Of course, everyone is different. Some people feel less resistance when scripting in the present tense, and some feel less resistance when writing in the past tense. I personally do both!
Here’s an example of scripting in the past tense: “This morning, I checked my Google Analytics and realized that I’m now officially driving more than 100k monthly views to my blog. Omg! It feels so surreal! I’ve been wishing for this ever since I started my blog and now it’s happening! Wow, I have no words except for immense gratitude. Thank you universe!”
Do Manifestation Journals Really Work?
I’m sure this is on many of your minds right now. Does journaling really help you manifest your dreams and desires? As I’ve mentioned earlier in this post, there is no one correct or magical technique that guarantees the manifestation of your dreams. Because you already have everything within you to realize your wildest dreams. It’s all up to you.
These techniques such as journaling, visualization, repeating affirmations, etc., are just tools to help you “believe” and “recognize” the power within you. As you continue to engage in these different exercises and techniques, you will begin to expand and transform your beliefs. For example, maybe 2 years ago, the idea of making more than 10k a month was unimaginable to you. But now, after journaling about it for so long, making 10k a month doesn’t even seem like much anymore.
As your self-concept improves, you then will be able to recognize opportunities the old you would’ve never paid attention to. This is how you begin to transform your life. (Omg, I’m getting goosebumps as I’m writing this…)
Remember This: Ask and It Is Given!
A lot of us don’t live the dream life we desire because we never asked for it! If we don’t input a destination address in our life GPS, how would our subconscious mind know where to direct us?
Treat your life like a lucid dream! You have creative control over everything in your life. Don’t like where your life is heading right now? Set a new target destination! Period! Put your intentions out there and ask the universe for guidance. Trust that everything is going to work out for you. Because it will!
Trust me, I know how hard it is to be at your rock bottom and have zero ideas what to do with your life. I’ve been there! It’s soooo tough and mentally draining! But don’t ever give up! Once you’ve placed an order with the universe, trust that it’s working hard to deliver it to you❤
Ready to Start Your Manifesting Journey?
Learning about the Law of Attraction and starting a manifestation planner has seriously changed my life completely!

No effing way!” My personality has transformed 180 degrees and my beliefs around success and money are sooooo different today than years ago.
