How To Use It: Sit in a quiet room, close your eyes, and imagine a reality where you are thriving and feeling good.
Use your imagination and supplement your visualization with as many details as possible. Focus on the location, the people, the smell, the sights, the sounds, and how good you feel.
The purpose of this manifestation exercise is to cause you to activate the vibrations within you that put you in the place of allowing your manifestation to come into existence.

How To Use It: Grab a piece of paper and make it your imaginary bank account.
On day 1, you’ll deposit $1,000 and spend $1,000. Use your imagination and go all-out when it comes to describing how you spend that money.
On day 2, you’ll deposit $2,000 and spend $2,000 and describe how you spend it again. Repeat this exercise daily.
This exercise helps you act as-if and align with the energy of abundance so you can manifest abundance into your life.
6. The Process of Meditation
When To Use It: When you want to release all negative thoughts and restore your natural high-vibration state.
How To Use It: Sit in a quiet room, close your eyes, and focus on your breathing.
Observe any thoughts that come up and gently shift your attention back to your breathing.
Meditate every day for 10 to 15 minutes for the best results.
By quieting your thoughts, you unblock your resistance to the flow of good vibration that is your birthright.
7. Evaluating Dreams
When To Use It: When you want to understand the meaning behind your dreams and how your dreams relate to your manifestations.
How To Use It:
Your dreams are direct reflections of the thoughts you have been thinking.
Before you go to bed, acknowledge that your dreams accurately reflect your thoughts and feelings (vibration).
When you wake up, recall last night’s dream and how you felt during the dream.
Let your dreams tell you whether you’re aligned or misaligned with the vibration of your desires.
If your dream was filled with love and good feelings, you can be confident that you are aligned with the manifestation of your desires.
If your dream was filled with fear and negative feelings, know that you are resisting the manifestation of your desires.
8. The Book of Positive Aspects
When To Use It: Use this manifestation technique whenever you want to focus your attention on appreciation and ride the positive wave of good feelings.
How To Use It: Find a notebook and use it as your Book of Positive Aspects.
At the top of the page, write the name of someone or something that you always feel good about.
Then, respond to these 3 questions: What do I like about you? Why do I love you so much? What are your positive aspects?
Write as long as the thoughts flow. When you’re finished, move on to the next page and write about another person or object.
The more positive aspects you search for, the more you are going to find. This is how the law of attraction works.
By writing in your Book of Positive Aspects, you activate the high vibration of well-being and make appreciation a natural part of your thoughts.

When To Use It: When you want to visualize your desires by writing about the specific details of what you would like to manifest into your reality.
How To Use It: Grab a piece of paper and describe in detail your dream life exactly as you want it to be.

Scripting will help you break your habit of being stuck in how things are and focus on how you would like things to be.
10. The Place Mat Process
When To Use It: Use this manifestation technique when you feel overwhelmed with your obligations and to-dos.
How To Use It: Take a piece of paper and divide it into two sides. One side is for the Things I Will Do Today. The other side is for Things I Would Like The Universe To Do.
Take your to-do list and assign your tasks to a side of the paper.
Only put the obligations you must do or things you really want to do on your side, and assign all the remaining tasks to the Universe’s side.
This exercise will help you spend your time and effort efficiently and learn to lean on the Universe for support and guidance.
11. Segment Intending
When To Use It: Use this manifestation technique when you want to prepare or protect your good vibration before a future event.
How To Use It: Think ahead in your day and be aware of any future events that you’ll like to enter into with good vibration or has the potential to lower your vibration.
Define how you want to feel and set mental boundaries that can protect your energy.
Otherwise, your current vibration will carry into the future. For example, if you feel bad right now, you’ll likely carry the negative energy into the rest of your day unless you mentally set an intention for the future.
12. Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…?
When To Use It: Use this manifestation technique when you want to shift your focus from the absence of your desire to the presence of your desire.
How To Use It: When you say “I want this to happen,” you emit an unspoken vibration within you that holds on to the absence of your desire.
The strong, demanding language is resisting your manifestations from happening.
Instead of framing your desires with an “I want” or an “I need” statement, reframe it using “Wouldn’t it be nice if…?”.
This reframing of your desires softens your request to the Universe and puts you in a better vibration. A vibration that is a closer match with your desires.
13. Which Thought Feels Better?
When To Use It: Use this manifestation technique when you want to get out of low vibration by reaching for a better feeling thought.
How To Use It: Take a piece of paper and write your thoughts down.
After you have written the first thought, write a second one related to it. Then evaluate which thought feels better.
If the second thought feels better than the first thought, continue writing down the next best feeling thought.
If the second thought feels worse than the first thought, reframe and take your thoughts in a different direction.
14. The Process of Clearing Clutter for Clarity
When To Use It: Use this manifestation exercise when you feel stressed out by a cluttered environment.
How To Use It: A cluttered environment can lower your vibration because they can take away from your enjoyment of the present moment.
If you’re easily stressed when it comes to organizing, simply take a few empty boxes and put any object you don’t immediately need into the boxes.
Put the boxes in storage and go through them for a thorough organization only when you’re feeling up to the task.
15. The Wallet Process
When To Use It: Use The Wallet Process when you want to manifest more money into your experience by living in the energy of abundance.
How To Use It: Put $100 in your wallet but keep it in your wallet and don’t actually spend it.
Whenever you see something you like, remind yourself that you could purchase it if you want to because you have $100 in your wallet.
By holding the money and not spending it right away, you can increase your vibration by reminding yourself that you are abundant.
By mentally spending this money over and over again, you act as if you are financially abundant.
When To Use It: Pivoting is one of the best manifestation techniques for redirecting your vibration when you feel you’re stuck in negative emotions.
How To Use It: Whenever you feel negative emotions, take a moment to pause and ask yourself: “I know what I don’t want, so what is it that I do want?”
Let your negative feelings be your guide back to better-feeling thoughts and high vibrations.
Negative feelings reveal to you what you don’t want, so you can clarify what it is you do want.
17. The Focus Wheel Process
When To Use It: Use the Focus Wheel Process anytime you feel negative emotion about something and you want to find your way to a positive emotion instead.
How To Use It: Draw a large circle on a piece of paper and draw a smaller circle the in center of the large circle.
In the small circle, write down a statement about how you feel right now.
Then write statements or positive affirmations related to it that make you feel good.
Imagine the large circle like a clock, and write 12 better-feeling statements starting at the 1 o’clock position.
Once you have written 12 statements, circle the statement that feels the best to you, and repeat the Focus Wheel Process by putting that statement in the middle.
This is one of the most powerful manifestation techniques for reframing your negative thoughts with more positive ones.

18. Finding the Feeling-Place
When To Use It: This manifestation technique uses visualization to shift your vibration into alignment with your desires so you can manifest what you want.
How To Use It: Instead of using words to ask the Universe for what you want, simply focus on what it feels like to be living your desire.
You can focus on a good memory, a good day, or even your future dream life.
The key is to focus on how good it feels to live in your desire than to focus on how bad it feels to live in the absence of it.
Because when you focus on feeling good, you can’t focus on the lack of your desire at the same time.
19. Releasing Resistance to Become Free of Debt
When To Use It: Use this manifestation exercise when you want to experience the relief of being debt-free and feel in control of your financial situation.
How To Use It: Create a spreadsheet and make a column for each of your debt payment obligations from largest to smallest.
At the top of the spreadsheet, write this affirmation: It is my desire to keep my promise regarding all of these financial obligations, and in some cases, I will even do twice as much as is required.
Every time you pay your bills, pay at least double the minimum payment on the far right column.
By keeping your word on doubling up on the payments, you’ll feel a sense of pride and your vibration around money will shift.
By shifting your vibration, you will manifest more money in your life and eliminate the columns from your spreadsheet one by one.
20. Turning It Over to the Manager
When To Use It: Use this manifestation technique when you want to surrender the outcome of your manifestation to the Universe.
How To Use It: Imagine yourself as the CEO of a large corporation and you have a manager who works using the Law of Attraction on your behalf.

Delegate your desires to your manager, and simply allow your manifestations to come true.
