Journaling prompts can be an effective way to manifest your dreams and desires.
To manifest something means to make it real.
In the context of the Law of Attraction – the idea that like attracts like – manifesting your dreams means making your dreams a reality.
This is usually achieved through raising your vibration (as everything vibrates at a different rate) to meet the vibration of the life you want to manifest, speaking your dream into existence, and taking positive action towards them.
Writing down what you want to manifest in your journal and using journaling prompts for manifestation not only puts whatever you want to manifest out into the universe, it also helps you focus on what actions you need to take to attract your manifestations towards you and make them a reality.
Just by writing them down, you’re already taking action towards them and journal prompts can help you delve even deeper into that.
What’s more, by using journal prompts for gratitude, you can raise your vibration, which helps you align with the reality you want to live in and become a more positive person in general.

These are some great journaling prompts for manifestation, which include not only focusing on the manifestation itself, but raising your vibration through gratitude in order to meet the same frequency as your dream life.

How to manifest using my journal?
As well as using journaling prompts for manifestation, you can also manifest using your journal in a few others ways.
- Write gratitude lists: Practising gratitude is thought to be one of the most effective ways to raise your vibration. By recognising what you do have and being thankful, you can attract even more good things because, according to the Law of Attraction, positivity attracts positivity. Writing gratitude lists is one of my favourite morning journal activities, which is why I teach it in my Master Your Mindset with Journaling workbook.
- Affirmations: Writing out positive, affirming statements is another way you can manifest using your journal. Putting whatever you want to manifest out into the universe is a good way to help you focus on it and attract it back. What’s more, the theory that whatever we believe we can achieve makes repeating affirmations until our minds start to believe them really effective when it comes to manifesting.
- Goal and intention-setting: Setting small – or even large – daily goals has been amazing for my mindset. It boosts motivation and helps you focus. When it comes to manifestation, it helps you take affirmative action towards your dream life.
- Shadow work: Working through your emotions, trauma, and limiting beliefs helps raise your vibration and put you in alignment with the person you want to become. I have a whole post of journal prompts for shadow work if you want to read more.
- Scheduling self-care: In addition to practising gratitude, a great way to raise your vibration is to practise self-love. Schedule in self-care, think about the way you talk to yourself, and treat yourself like you would someone you’re completely in love with and devoted to – because you should be!
I go over all these steps in my Master Your Mindset with Journaling workbook.
In this workbook, I cover how to completely transform your mindset and outlook on life through your daily journal practise.
With the help of my Countdown journaling technique, which I go over in the workbook, I transformed my mindset from a dark, negative place that only attracted more negativity, to a positive one where I’m manifesting my goals.
