How to create a manifestation journal

Creating a manifestation journal to achieve your goals

The world we're living in is a strange one that's for sure. It seems like you can't plan anything beyond a few days for changing restrictions. Now is a great time to start thinking about longer term goals and ambitions. One way of doing this is to look into the art manifesting and creating a manifestation journal*

Manifestation essentially is bringing something into your life through attraction and belief. It's making everything you want into a reality - do I think it works? I'm unsure

I've not been doing this long enough but there's a lot of people that believe in the process. If anything it helps you visualise your goals and make steps towards achieving them.

Why create a manifestation journal?

A manifestation journal is one of the easiest processes you can begin with and get started. First you need a dedicated notebook. You'll use this to write down your goals, positive thoughts and ideas

A manifestation journal is a dedicated notebook that you use to write down positive thoughts and ideas related to your goals and dreams. It aims to help you build a positive momentum and improve your thoughts around your goal, helping you form a clearer path to achieving it

What you need to create a manifestation journal

Ultimately all you need is a pen and a notebook. You can keep it as simple as that but personally I wanted to do it a little differently. With this being a book that holds my hopes, dreams and wants I wanted to make sure the notebook inspired me and had a clear focus

I've been using this beautiful 'Make your Own Magic' Notebook from Old English Co.* It's A5 so small enough to pop in my handbag if needed, softback with a foil design that you can personalise with your name or message. It's such a lovely notebook, the ivory paper is of excellent quality and I'm thoroughly enjoying creating my manifestations inside it. Old English Co. have a whole range of hand lettered and illustration themed stationery to suit every taste so definitely check them out

If you'd prefer a bullet journal style book with dotted pages I have a £10 off for new customers at Papier* and their notebooks are an absolute dream with so many personalisation options. If you like something more structured then check out my review of the Inspire Spirit Planner

In terms of a pen I'd personally recommend investing in some beautiful coloured pens, your journal should reflect your highest hopes and dreams and having a dedicated pen set like the Staedtler 334 Triplus Finelinerswill help you make those pages colourful and inspiring and make you happy when you look at it

As well as a notebook and pen you could look into other journalling tools such as washi tapes, stencils, or stickers around your goals but definitely concentrate more on the content you put into your journal.

How to get started with a manifestation journal

Now you have the right tools to get started it's time to begin creating your manifestation journal. There are no hard and fast rules to this but there are various manifestation techniques you can utilise. I'd recommend using a bit of scrap paper or your notepad on your phone to get a feel for the techniques and work out which ones work best for you. 

I've personally been using the list method, each day I work through my preset list filling in all the blanks and thinking positively about what I want. The list can be totally personal to you but it's important you maintain a positive outset in your journal entries and truly think about how this can be achieved. My own personal list looks like this:

My Goal - This is my personal goal, what I want to achieve through manifestation. I write this down daily at the top of the page

Gratitude - 3 things I am grateful for that day, I try and link this to my goal if I've seen or heard anything supporting my overall goal but it can be 3 totally unrelated things too

10 Ideas - This is 10 ideas that can either move my goal forward, or 10 things I would do, or some days just 10 things that make me happy. I always try to have my goal in mind for example if I was attempting to manifest wealth I would think of 10 ideas for making more money or creating 10 side hustles 

Future Planning - This is basically a list of goals and ideas for things I want to do, they can relate back to my goal or be wildly different but they can cover months, years or just generally day to day for example a future planning goal could be to make sure I read 10 books this year it's an achievable goal and something that will bring me joy in completing

Once I've completed my list daily I think fill up any spare room on that page with doodle or images or quotes that have a significance to me and hopefully manifesting my goal.

Journalling daily and manifesting my goals is a new thing I've started but I do already feel the benefits, it's a great tool for self care and I personally find it a real help with any anxieties I may be having to spend time consciously thinking about a goal and making that a reality

What goals are you trying to manifest?
