Sharing is caring!

Here’s how to write a manifestation list!

  1. Decide what you want.
  2. Choose your method.
  3. Write what you want!
  4. Manifest

Now, if you’ve looked up ideas for how to write a manifestation list before, you might notice that it can seem kind of complicated. 

Most manifestation teachers tell you to write your manifestation list in present tense, to write it as affirmations, to write it as if you already have it, etc, etc. 

But you don’t have to do it that way! 

Instead of making it complicated, let’s go through how to write a manifestation list the easy way!

Tips for Writing A Manifestation List (That Works!)

First, brainstorm what you want. 

If you have a vision board or if you’ve used a manifestation journal or scripting methods before, you probably already have an idea of what you want. 

But if you don’t and this is your first time trying it, get out a notebook or a google doc and brainstorm! 

You can even go through pinterest for ideas or go to instagram and find inspo pics.

Second, choose your method. 

If you like to write, you can start a manifestation notebook. 

This notebook will ONLY contain your manifestation list. 

Otherwise, you can also use a note on your phone, a google doc on your computer – YOU decide which method is going to work best for you. 

Some tips for deciding which method to choose: If you like to write, choose a vibey notebook that you love.  And a special pen. 

If you want to use a note on your phone, name it something fun. 

The same goes for your google doc. 

The entire point of the manifestation list method is that you feel GREAT about it.

After all, this is going to hold everything you want.  It should feel special!

Third, write what you want. 

Now here’s where people make writing a manifestation list complicated. 

Instead of worrying about writing your affirmations perfectly, or writing everything as if you already have it, you’re going to do this instead:

At the top of the page/note/whatever you’re using write something like:

  • Manifestation List
  • Everything I’ve Manifested
  • My Current 3D or 4D
  • Thank you, Universe, for the following things I’ve received:
  • Dear Universe, it’s time for these things to come:
  • I’ve received:

Or if you’re into it, you can use your manifestation list as a way of asking the Universe to give you what you want. 

You can write something like: “Dear Universe, I would like” and then make your list. 

The key is to write what is believable for you so that it will manifest more quickly! 

Fourth: It is done!

It’s time for what you want to manifest! 

Writing a manifestation list is a “set it and forget it” way of manifesting what you want. 

You don’t have to do anything else for your manifestations to come!

Some Key Points to Remember About Writing A Manifestation List

Keep it simple.

Writing what you want doesn’t have to be super descriptive!

You can write it as simply as you want. 

If you want a car, for example, you can just say the car make and color.

The Universe (and 4D you!) knows what you mean.

Just write it once.

Writing a manifestation list isn’t a manifestation method where you write what you want over and over. 

You only have to write it once. 

When you revisit your list, write even more things you want!

Revisit it often.

Be sure to look at your manifestation list every few weeks and update what you want! 

Find a fun way to mark what you’ve already manifested and keep going!

Use your list to write down EVERYTHING you are manifesting and make it fun!

Pros of Writing a Manifestation List

Set it and forget it. You only have to do it once, unlike other manifestation methods like the 369 method or 5 x 55 method.

Fast. Writing a manifestation list is fast and not time-consuming at all.

You can do it on the go.  You can write it on your phone.

Easy. If you believe it will work for you, it’s probably the easiest manifestation method that exists.

Cons of Writing a Manifestation List

If you’re new to manifesting, it can seem too easy. Which means it might not work for you.

How long does it take for a manifestation list to work?

A manifestation list can really work instantly if you believe it will!

Manifestation doesn’t have to take a long time.

Of course, there are things like limiting beliefs or self-concept that can make manifestation take longer.

But if you don’t have anything standing in your way, a manifestation list can work VERY quickly!

Things you can do to speed up manifestation and make your list happen more quickly:

Work on self-concept. 

Self-concept is how you see yourself. 

If you see yourself as someone who gets everything they want (no matter what) your manifestations will always come more quickly. 

If you see yourself as someone who can’t manifest easily, then it will be harder for you to manifest with a manifestation list.

Work on your self-belief so that you can manifest anything you want!

Pair it with affirmations. 

Using affirmations is a way to alter your self-concept quickly.

Affirmations are basically how you talk to yourself.

Do you talk to yourself positively or negatively? 

Do you believe you are going to get what you want or not? 

If you don’t believe you will get what you want, then that belief is what will manifest for you. 

Instead, work on how you speak to yourself.

Catch yourself when you are talking negatively about your manifestations and turn them around in the moment. 

If you need help with this, you can set an alarm on your phone every few hours and when it goes off, stop and see what you were thinking about at that moment. 

This can help you catch how you’re truly thinking about yourself and what you want throughout the day. 

If you catch yourself thinking negatively about what you want, change it RIGHT THEN!

Reaffirm to yourself that you DO get what you want.

Pair it with subliminal recordings. 

There are lots of subliminal recordings on youtube that you can listen to at night or throughout the day to help change your self-concept. 

You can also record your own affirmations to listen to throughout the day or while you’re sleeping! 

Look for evidence that you can have what you want. 

If you don’t know anyone who has what you want, search for them! 

If you look on youtube, twitter, or instagram for people who practice the law of attraction or law of assumption, you can find tons of success stories from people who have manifested the same thing you’d like to manifest!

This can help you believe that you can also have what you want!

Plus it also helps to see others practicing the law and be around like-minded people.

As often as possible, feel the feelings of having what you want. 

The more you can match your vibration to the vibration of having what you want, the more quickly and easily your manifestation list will come true.  Like attracts like!


Meditating can help you drop your old vibrational programming.

It also trains you to let go of your thoughts and feel better. 

You can meditate with guided meditations, subliminal recordings, or just silence.

Try different meditations and see what works best for you!
