What is a manifestation journal?
A manifestation journal is notebook that is used for the sole purpose of manifesting your hopes, dreams, and goals into your reality. Its different from a traditional journal because it teaches you how focus your attention on positive thoughts and ideas related to your desires and ultimately helps you intentionally create your day to day reality.
How a manifestation journal works?
When you use a manifestation journal, you’re working with the law of attraction to manipulate energy and begin attracting your desires straight to you. Writing inside your journal helps you focus your energy on what you want, puts you in a positive mood, and helps you get into vibrational alignment with your manifestations. This helps you become an energetic match to what you want and attracts it right to you.

Your journal is your private space to get clarity on what you want and be intentional about the life you want to create. Be sure to include manifestations for all parts of your life including career, relationships, finances, wellness, etc.

6 Manifestation Journal Techniques
The following manifesting techniques will give you an idea of how you can use your manifestation journal to master the art of manifesting and create the life you dream of. Try the ones that best resonate with you, but also don’t be afraid to try them all.
Remember to think positively and dream big when using your journal and try to make it a daily habit because consistency is a must when manifesting!
This manifesting technique is simply about writing a list of what you are grateful for. Gratitude is like gold when it comes to manifesting. It has the power to instantly raise your vibration and can help you shift your focus to all the good things you already have in your life.
The more gratitude you give for what you have, the more you receive in return, making you an instant match for what you desire.
We recommend writing a daily list of 10-20 things and/or experiences you are grateful for every morning or night before bed.
Intention setting is similar to setting goals but on a deeper level. When you set intentions for what you want in your life, you don’t just write down your desires and see if they show up for you, with intention setting you also do the inner work to make it happen.
We’ve created a 5 step process we like to use when we set intentions with our Girl Unfinished team.
“I am manifesting” list
This technique is sweet, simple, and straight to the point. Inside your manifestation journal write a list of all the things you’d like to manifest into your life. Remember to keep a positive attitude when writing and let the excitement of receiving your manifestations wash over you as you are writing. Do this daily for best results!
The 5×55 method is a popular manifesting technique that involves you writing your desire 55 times a day for 5 days. You can use your manifestation journal for your 5×55 list, after the 5 days your manifestations will be imprinted inside your mind and will feel more real than ever before. This will help you become the match for what you want and you’ll receive it much faster!
This simple but powerful manifesting technique allows you to write a list of statements that describe how you would like to feel, look, or be. With daily practice, affirmations have the power to rewire your thought patterns and upgrade your mindset. Over time these affirmations will become your new belief system and that is manifestation in action!
Scripting is our favorite manifestation journal example which is why we saved the best for last! Scripting is a journaling process where you write about what you want as if its already yours. As you are writing about your manifestation in the past tense you are also invoking all the happy feelings and joyful emotions that it brings up for you. This is very important in the manifestation process!
We love scripting because it also allows you to get very specific and detailed about what you want to call into your life which helps the universe provide it for you even faster! Here’s some of our favorite scripting journal prompts for you to get started:
- What did I manifest today?
- What did my manifestation look like? Color? Size? Monetary Value?
- How did it feel when I received my manifestation?
- Now that I have received my manifestation, I am going to…
- I am so grateful for this manifestation because…
