Five Benefits of Writing To Manifest Your Desires

Before we get started, I want to let you know that you don’t need perfect writing skills.

ANYONE can learn how to manifest using pen and paper!

You don’t need any academic training in writing nor be a lyrical wordsmith to make your dreams come true.

“The Universe doesn’t check for grammar mistakes or your vocabulary.”

Instead, it will respond to your thoughts, words, and feelings using the Law of Attraction.

For more information about LOA and how I used it to manifest a job at Google, read this article.  

Now that we have that out of the way, read on to find out why writing on paper can take your manifestation game to the next level.

1. Writing helps gain clarity

Do you find yourself ‘wanting to be successful’ or to ‘up your game,’ but you don’t know what that looks like?

Maybe you want to be an entrepreneur and start a business, but you have multiple conflicting ideas, and you don’t know where to start or which idea to pursue first.

Manifesting success using the Law of Attraction is difficult when you are unclear about what you want.

This is where writing down your thoughts, ideas, and desires becomes helpful. It is how I was able to gain clarity and eventually manifest my dream business, which supports my lifestyle.

The more you write, the more you refine your thought process.

You will start to narrow down on what you want, and eventually, you will have clarity of mind, a crucial requirement in the manifesting game.

2. Writing enables you to keep perspective

Let’s face it:

Even the most powerful manifesters can lose focus from time to time.

Life can throw at you all sorts of curveballs and distract you from your goals.

The problem with keeping things in your memory is that you can forget or something else might pull your attention away and confuse you.

But, when you put pen on paper, you can refer to your written goals and affirmations whenever you feel impatient, doubtful, or lost.

Reading this will shift your mind back to what you really need to be focusing on.

Writing can help you keep perspective, renew your faith, and restore your trust in the Universe, especially when facing external distractions.

3. Using your own words can help you visualize more powerfully

There are many visualization tools and strategies you can use to bring your desires into reality.

A popular strategy is creating a vision board by cutting out magazine pictures of what you want to achieve in your own life.

You then keep these images where you can see them every day to manifest them eventually.

I don’t have a problem with this manifestation method. BUT, some people may find it hard to visualize using another person’s possessions.

Your conscious mind knows these things aren’t yours.

Writing and using your own words to visualize exactly what you want is the most powerful manifestation method.

Your mind will face less resistance when it’s your own thoughts and ideas versus using someone else’s things to visualize.

4. You stay accountable and committed to the process

To manifest powerfully, your habits must be consistent with your desires.

You can’t say you want to manifest your dream beach body yet choose to engage in unhealthy eating habits.

“When you are sending out conflicting vibrations, the Universe will send you back conflicting results.”

This is why I love the idea of writing down exactly what you want. It keeps you committed and accountable to yourself.

It is kind of like telling your friend you want to achieve XYZ by such and such a time, i.e., “My goal is to practice good financial habits and buy an apartment by the end of next year.”

Once you come out with such as statement, you wouldn’t want your friends to see you are not following through.

By writing down your goals, ideas, aspirations, and affirmations, you will be motivated to stay the course.

It is one of the most powerful ways to communicate your desires to the Universe.

5. Exploring and overcoming your limiting beliefs becomes possible

Limiting beliefs are the biggest obstacle to manifesting.

These are unconscious opinions the society instilled in us since childhood about ourselves and the world.

An example of a limiting belief is:

Good things don’t come by easily.

If this is something you believe, you will, unknowingly, engage in actions that make it hard for good things to come to you.

Limiting beliefs work as a self-fulfilling prophecy!

We don’t always know what our limiting beliefs are. But, journaling is one of the best ways to start exploring your beliefs around success, career, money, or relationships.

By bringing your limiting beliefs to your awareness, you can work around them, release them, and go on to manifest anything you want.

How To Manifest Using Paper And Pen: 3 Powerful Methods

So far, we have learned about all the amazing benefits of writing to make your dreams come true.

Now, I want to show you how to manifest using paper and pen through three practical methods.

I really like these methods because you can begin with them immediately, and you don’t have to be a spiritual guru to start seeing results. Just start where you are and with what you have.

If you don’t know what you want to manifest into your future, I recommend getting this free soul path reading before you start.

The three methods are:

  • Keeping a journal
  • Scripting your desired life story
  • Creating a desire list

Keeping a journal

Many studies have shown the positive effects of journaling, also known as expressive writing.

“Aside from being beneficial to your mental health, journaling can be a forceful way of putting the law of attraction into action in your life.”

Journaling entails writing your thoughts and ideas in free flow.

Think of it as an expressive way of documenting the events in your life.

I have kept a journal for the last couple of years and I can confidently say it is one of the most powerful ways to gain clarity about where you are and where you want to be.

By freely writing down your thoughts and ideas, you can identify positive and negative thought patterns and behaviors.

Then, you will be able to determine what needs to change in order to uplift your vibrations and align yourself with what you want to manifest.

The truth is:

Most of us aren’t even aware of our own thoughts. Yet, according to the law of attraction, your predominant thoughts become things.

Journaling brings awareness to your thoughts. The more aware you are of your thoughts, the more intentional you can be about manifesting your desires.

The other reason why I am such a strong advocate of journaling is it can be a fantastic platform for expressing gratitude.

Aside from documenting your life, you can also use your journal to record and remind yourself about everything you are grateful for.

According to the Law of Attraction, like attracts like.

The more grateful you are, even for the littlest things in your life, the Universe will send you more people, things, and situations to be grateful for.

Scripting your desired life story

Scripting lets you take advantage of another powerful Law of Attraction principle: acting as if.

I understand that a lot of people feel like when you act as if then you are living a fake life.

But, it is important to go beyond this loose interpretation and really understand what acting as if truly means and how it helps with manifesting.

First of all:

What is scripting?

Scripting is a form of writing in which you create stories about how you envision your life to be like. Scripting is written in the present tense and helps to affirm what you want to happen in your life.

Scripting isn’t about documenting your past or current life events, or making future plans.

It is about imaginative creativity where you imagine you already have the life or things you want to manifest.

For example, say you want to manifest a new job using scripting.

You will take pen and paper and start writing about your new job; you will include details about how well the interview went, and how excited you were when you received an offer.

You will describe how much fun you had on your first day at work. You will write about your wonderful colleagues, supportive manager, and beautiful office.

Feeling and acting as if you already have what you want fires up the feel-good factor and elevates your vibrations.

“The Universe is constantly responding to your vibrations. The higher and more refined your vibes, the closer and closer the thing you want moves to you, and soon it will be manifested in physical reality.”

Creating a desire list

The idea behind a desire list is writing down everything you want to manifest and internalizing these desires.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to manifest multiple things—possibilities are limitless and the Universe is infinite.

Anything you want to manifest, add it to the list.

If there is something you no longer wish for, remove it. Do this as often as you need to.

Keep your desire list close and look at it every day. This will help imprint your manifestation list onto your subconscious, where the magic happens.

“The subconscious mind is the portal through which you communicate with the Universe. Once something is imprinted on your subconscious, it will manifest in the physical reality at some point.”

So, what is the point of writing a desire list? This method of manifesting using paper and pen has a couple of benefits.

First, writing down your wish list and even removing some items from the list gives you clarity, allowing you to focus your thoughts and feelings on exactly what you want to bring to reality.

This isn’t always possible when you try to do it with your memory only.

Second, seeing your desires on paper can heighten your vibrations, so you can align yourself with that which you desire and therefore attract it into reality.

Third, every time you manifest something and cancel it off the list, your faith is strengthened.

When you trust the process and get rid of resistance, the game of manifesting becomes easier and more fun.

3 Tips For Effective Writing To Manifest Anything You Want

Now that you know how to manifest using paper and pen, I want to share with you a few simple rules you should follow to make it easier to start manifesting soon as today.

I have used these best practices myself and seen their effectiveness firsthand.

My three rules for manifesting anything using pen and paper are:

1. Make it believable for yourself

Faith and trust are so important when using the law of attraction to manifest.

When scripting and creating your desire list, ensure your words are realistic.

If something is not believable to you, you will experience resistance, and manifesting will be difficult.

Knowing your Self is so crucial to manifestation. To dive deeper into who you are and your path, I recommend doing a Numerology reading.

2. Bring your feelings to it

The Universe responds to your vibrations; not what you write on paper.

You must feel good now to attract what you want; you must accompany the affirmations, desires, and thoughts you write down with the feelings you want to feel when you finally manifest.

Fun fact:

Did you know that your vibrations are heightened at full moon? This makes it an excellent time to write down your manifestations. You can find out how to do a full moon manifestation ritual here.

3. Express gratitude

Whether you are journaling, scripting or creating your desire list, remember to feel grateful and make your writing as positive as possible.

Positivity attracts positivity; an attitude of gratitude attracts more things to be grateful for.

Yes, you can throw the manifestation paper away. There is no need to worry if you can’t find it, or that you need to store it in a safe place. By writing what you want to manifest down, you have made your “order” to the Universe and set things in motion.

Can I write my manifestation on the phone?

Yes, you can write your manifestation on your phone. Some claim that writing on paper is more effective, but in the end it’s about your feelings, thoughts, and beliefs that determine whether the Universe will grant you your wish or not. 

How to manifest anything at the blink of an eye?

To manifest something instantly you first need to get clear on exactly what you want to manifest and write it down. Let the Universe know that you want it to happen today, and why. The reason should not be selfish and ego-driven.

Then have full trust it will happen today and try to stay in a positive vibration throughout the day. Be open to any signs the Universe might send you. 

If it doesn’t work, you might want to try to open your third eye, as this will increase your manifestation powers. Check out this blog post on how to open your third eye successfully here.

The more realistic your writing is for your, the more forcefully you be able to attract and bring anything you desire to reality.
