5 Manifestation Methods to Help You Achieve the Life of Your Dreams

Just wanting something to happen is unlikely to make it happen. However, using manifesting methods is more than just wanting something to happen. When you focus your energy on something, you can manifest things into happening. That is because when we focus on something, our thoughts inform our actions, and, obviously, our actions lead us to what we want. So it is time to start using these manifesting methods to create the life of your dreams. 

Start with Positive Thinking 

We get back what we put out into the world. Do you ever feel like when bad things start happening, more bad things pile on? That may be, in part, because you are unintentionally manifesting negative things. Something bad happens, we focus our thoughts on negativity, which creates negative energy and you might as well be a magnet for bad things at that point. The same is true when good things are happening. 

Positive thinking is more powerful than you might realize. Rather than thinking that once something good happens to you you’ll be happy, start thinking positively in order to make good things happen. If you are happy, good things will happen. That is because positive energy attracts positivity. Think about it this way. Would you rather be around someone who makes you feel happy or someone who is grumpy and brooding? Just as much as it is true that misery loves company, happiness begets happiness. 

5 Manifestation Methods To Help You Achieve The Life Of Your Dreams

The first step in all manifesting methods is to have a positive attitude in order to harness positive thoughts and actions. Putting positive energy out into the world is more likely to make you do well, attract positive people into your life, and lead you to making things happen. This is not to say that you can never have a bad day or that bad or negative things and people won’t come into your life. It means that being positive will lead to more positive than negative things for you.


Set Your Intentions

Once you have decided to employ some manifesting methods in your life and put positive thoughts and energy first, it is important to set your intentions. This simply means you want to set a goal (or multiple goals!) for yourself. Think about what you want to achieve and what achieving that goal will do for you. This will give you some clear direction. 

Your intentions can be big – a major life change, something lifelong, or even how you want to live your life – or small – something temporary or something you want to happen today or tomorrow for instance. Whether big or small, the intention you set should be specific and actionable.

Once you have decided what intentions you want to set, say them out loud or write them down. This helps make them real. This can be anything from I’m going to do my best today to I will make healthy choices to I will find the job that is meant for me. The only rule to setting intentions are that they must be positive and you have to believe they can happen.  


5 Simple Manifesting Methods

There are a bunch of different manifesting methods you can use to reach your goals. That is because there is no right or wrong way to manifest your dreams and live the life you want. These are simply tools to help you visualize what you want and help guide your thoughts and actions. That means you can choose the manifesting methods you like and leave the rest. Here are a few simple yet effective manifesting methods that can help shift your mindset and put you on the right track. 

Manifesting Gratitude Journal 

Keeping a journal is a good way to train your thoughts to be positive. A gratitude journal is exactly what it sounds like. It is a journal where you write down what you are thankful for, whether that be big things like getting a raise or reaching an exercise goal or small things like having the time to take a walk during your lunch break because it was a beautiful day outside. 

Writing down a few things you are grateful for each day helps you look at things positively. You may never have thought about how you are grateful for certain small things that happen to you on a daily basis without actively thinking about it in this way. Over time, you are training your brain to look at your life this way.  

5 Manifestation Methods To Help You Achieve The Life Of Your Dreams

Journaling is one of the easier manifesting methods to try because it is quick and simple. You do not have to write pages upon pages for this method to help you. You can write down a few sentences or even bullet points each day and it will still help you guide your thoughts to positive places. 

You can pair the idea of a gratitude journal with a manifesting journal and write down the goals and things you want to manifest. Each day you might write down one or two things you are grateful for from that day and one or two things you want to manifest. You might repeat the same goal every day for a month or you might accomplish that goal in a week and then set new intentions. Things take time, so this also lets you go back and look through what you have accomplished over the course of a month or a year. 


369 Manifestation 

As far as manifestation methods go, the 369 method is a way to touch base with your intentions throughout the day. First, decide what you want to manifest. Remember, it needs to be positive. Next, you need to create a clear affirmation. For example, if you want to manifest a promotion, your affirmation might be “I will find the perfect job for me.” Once you have your affirmation, you are going to write down your affirmation three times when you wake up in the morning; write it down again six times in the afternoon; then write down your affirmation nine times before you go to bed.

This type of manifesting works with the law of attraction and all that positive thinking you are doing. Why 3,6, and 9 though? Inventor Nikola Tesla is credited with coming up with the combination of 3, 6, and 9. He believed they were powerful numbers that could unlock the universe. In numerology, the number 3 represents our connection to the universe and our self-expression, the number 6 represents our inner strength and harmony, and the number 9 represents our ability to let go of what no longer serves us and to experience an inner rebirth in order to change into who we want to become. 

Pillow Method

This method carries manifestation over into your sleep. It is simple. Write down your goals and put them under your pillow before you go to sleep. Let that affirmation be the last thing you think about as you fall asleep, allowing it to sink into your subconscious brain. As much as possible use present tense statements like I am…, I feel…, and I have…

How many days you write your affirmation down and put it under your pillow is up to you. You can do it every night for a week. You could do it longer or shorter than that if you want. Do what feels right for you. The idea behind this method is that your last thoughts of the day will help modify your subconscious. Does putting these goals under your pillow do anything special? No. But writing things down before bed can help clear your mind, and having a bedtime ritual can shift your mindset and help you focus on what you want.

Manifesting is powerful and can help you accomplish your goals, but do not set your intentions and then just sit at home waiting for the universe to bring you what you want. You have to work with the universe to make your dreams come true. So once you start using manifesting methods , look out for chances to take action or opportunities to work towards your goal. Before you know it, your life will be filled with all sorts of positive things – both that you were intentionally looking for and some that you didn’t even realize you needed or wanted. 

55×5 Method

If you have a hard time staying positive, manifesting methods that help you practice positive affirmations are good to add into your routine. The 55×5 method is simple. All you have to do is write down your affirmation 55 times a day for 5 days. Create your positive affirmation out of what you want to manifest. Create a statement in the present tense that clearly states what you want. Then write out that same sentence 55 times each day for the next 5 days. 

5 Manifestation Methods To Help You Achieve The Life Of Your Dreams

This method pairs nicely with a manifesting gratitude journal because it is a good way to create a habit of using positive affirmations in your life. It also gets you in the habit of writing in your journal. You do not have to write down your affirmation all 55 times at once. You can spread it out over the course of the day if that is easier and more manageable. This is not a one-and-done technique either. You can come back and use this (and any other manifesting methods you try) over and over again throughout the year. 

This method is effective because it uses the law of attraction. It also aligns your subconscious with your desires, which carries over into your daily life to help you overcome any subconscious doubts you might have about what you can accomplish. The 55×5 method can help you take action to bring what it is you want to manifest into reality.


Manifestation Box

Manifestation boxes (also called intention boxes, vision boxes, or wish boxes) are manifesting methods that also tap into the law of attraction. Manifestation methods that are simple are great because you can change your mindset and start generating positive energy with easy steps. Because bringing positivity into your life and achieving your goals has to start somewhere. Small, simple changes can make the biggest difference.

To create a manifestation or vision box, start with a box. You can get a fancy little box, something simple, or even upcycle a small Amazon box or something like that. Then, set an intention. With this intention in mind, put things in the box that connect with or relate to this intention. You don’t have to put everything in the box at once. You can add things over time. 

The point of this technique is to again set your intention and envision your goals. It is similar to making a vision board. It helps define a clear vision for yourself. It also helps set this intention in your life and makes it more likely that you will take steps to make this happen in your life. 

If you want to live a more positive life, have finally decided to earnestly go after what you want, and/or are just exploring manifesting methods, these five methods will put you on the right track. While you might be doubtful, if you really give a few manifesting methods a try, you might be surprised at the results. However, remember that the universe cannot work alone. You have to work with it to make your dreams become a reality.
