Abundance Manifesting: How to Journal Your Dreams into Reality

Abundance manifesting and journaling go together like peanut butter and jelly…

Journaling has soooooo many benefits, including increased clarity, intuition, and mental dexterity… But did you know that you can super-power your journaling efforts to manifest abundance and help turn even your loftiest dreams into reality!

It’s easy. It’s fun. And today, we’re going to learn how to do it.

Seriously, you’re going to want to get your sparkly pen ready 🙂

You’ve probably heard the saying, “like attracts like”. You know, that little idea that the Universe provides what we focus on and direct our attention to…

Whatever we’re focusing on creates a vibration and energy in us and the Universe responds by sending something of the same vibration and energy our way.

  • For instance, focusing on LACK of money can result in the Universe providing MORE lack.
  • Focusing on what money we DO have and being grateful for it (even if it’s the last $2.11 in our checking account), can prompt the Universe to send MORE abundance our way (ch-ching!).

What we want to do is laser-focus our journaling to increase our abundance…

Traditional Journaling vs. Journaling for Manifesting Abundance

Traditional journaling usually involves writing about our day, how we’re feeling, or any other details we’re prompted to dish out.

But journaling for abundance manifesting is different

We need to flip the script and write about our dream FUTURE in the PRESENT tense.

This means we are thanking the Universe for something it hasn’t given us yet.

This is key, friends! According to the law of attraction, when you FEEL something and your vibration matches that feeling, the universe MUST deliver it into reality. It’s a universal law.

Pro Tip: Some people actually feel guilty that they are manifesting abundance. But part of being spiritually healthy is allowing abundance and joy into your life 🙂 The BEST book I’ve ever read on the subject is The Millionaire from Nazareth. It will change your entire perspective!

Does Abundance Manifesting Work?

If that sounds a little out there, let me assure you, this flippin’ works!

The other day I was cleaning out my closets and started flipping through my old journals…  and OMG holy cow!

I realized that SO many of the things that I wanted to manifest had actually come to fruition.

I’m talking about:

  • A blog with over 2 million views
  • A psychic development community of over 10,000
  • Credit card debt paid off in full
  • My first “5-figure” income month
  • waaaaay better marriage
  • A brand NEW car with a payment that is CHEAPER than my old car!
  • My husband’s vehicle paid off in less than one year
  • And on and on!

So how do YOU get in on this goodness? 

Does Abundance Manifesting Work

1. Get Clear on Your Vision

Abundance manifesting works best when you are crystal clear on what your dreams are.

When you think about the future:

  • What parts are non-negotiable for you?
  • Do you want to live near family?
  • Have a certain job?
  • What does your actual day-to-day life look like?
  • What time do you wake up?
  • Which restaurants do you frequent?

ALL of these types of specifics will help you manifest abundance with intention and clarity. So stop for a minute, and think about your “dream” or “goal”. If it helps, go on and create a vision board to look at every day!

2. Write as if It’s Already Happened

Sometimes, I’ll just write a page or two with the words, “I am so happy and grateful now that I _________ (have paid off my credit cards, can go out to dinner with my husband every Friday night, etc.)”.

The page literally looks like this:

I am so happy and grateful now that I have paid off my credit cards!

I am so happy and grateful now that I have paid off my credit cards!

And I’ll just write that junk out like a hundred times in a row, allowing myself to get EXCITED, and FEEL what it will be like when my credit cards are paid off.

With each sentence, allow yourself to believe what you are writing because…

Writing about our here and now goals as if they’re already accomplished puts us at the vibration level we need to manifest them into fruition!

3. Tell a Story

Another fun way to manifest abundance through journaling is to write about stuff like you already have it in story form.

In other words, instead of going the thankful route, write like it’s the end of the day and you are writing in your personal diary.

Here’s a personal example I’ve written about to manifest my dream weekend (which to me, means no stress and LOTS of relaxing 🙂

“Dear diary,

Today was a perfect Saturday! We slept in until 9 am. When we woke the weather was absolutely gorgeous. It was a perfect 70 degrees and we could feel the breeze coming through the window. I loved watching the white curtains billow in the breeze… there’s just something so romantic about it!

Hubby made coffee and we took our time sipping on it while we talked about what we wanted to do today. Around 10 am, we got up, got dressed, and took a leisurely stroll at the beach, then window-shopped downtown.

Of course, nothing sets the “beach and window-shopping mood” like my favorite blue and white pinstriped button-down shirt, white capris and flip flops! And of course, my favorite necklace with my initials on it (swoon!).

After our near hour walk on the beach, we had brunch at our favorite downtown restaurant. I had scrambled eggs and homefries… Hubby had French toast and bacon. After that, we did a little more window shopping and sat on a bench watching the water and sipping on iced coffee from our favorite coffee house.

When we came home, we straightened up the house a little bit, then relaxed in front of the TV for a cat nap. Tonight, we chatted, laughed, and enjoyed our time together. Of course, we ended our day with our traditional milkshake and fries combo from the local burger joint and binge watched House of Cards!”

In this example, my abundance goal was centered around love, marriage and living a more joyful and stress-free life.

My husband and I don’t live by the beach (yet), but I did get the gold necklace with my initials on it (just like the one Prince Harry gave to Meghan Markle, of course!) and my marriage has improved ten-fold! (And yes, we do drink coffee in bed on the weekends 🙂 ).

4. Allow Room for Options

While it’s really important to get clear on your goals, it’s entirely possible that those goals will be fulfilled in ways you don’t even think are possible now.

Abundance manifesting comes in MANY different forms, so don’t limit yourself.

I personally like to include the phrase, “I intend this or something better”.

This gives the Universe options to bring something about in an unlimited amount of ways.

If your goals have you living on the beach, but you’re not sure which beach, leave it up to interpretation! Focus on the specifics you DO have and allow the Universe the flexibility to bring it into reality for you.

5. Believe it’s Possible

The Universe can not be fooled.

The Universal Law of Attraction states that when you feel something AND your vibration matches that feeling, the Universe must deliver it into reality.

Journaling dreams into reality isn’t like Tom Riddle’s Diary in Harry Potter (thankfully!).

As you journal, you must be sincerely grateful as if it’s already your life — that is what brings your vibration up. Simply writing something down and moving on with your day will not deliver that fabulous beach house. 🙂

Abundance Manifesting through Journaling Takeaways

Journaling your dreams into reality is seriously powerful and, if nothing else, a fantastic exercise because it forces you to think about your future in a detailed and specific way!

Plus, it brings immense thankfulness into your life. The Universe in turn delivers whatever you were thankful for.

So get those goals down on paper! Dream up your perfect life and watch as it starts to occur — maybe in ways you never even imagined.

In a year, pull out your journal… and see what abundance manifesting has happened for you!
