Law of Attraction & Manifestation Rituals

If you aren’t familiar with the Law of Attraction, it’s essentially a belief that your thoughts, be they positive or negative, will bring positive or negative experiences into your life. There’s a ton of history, science, and even debate behind this universal law, but for now, I want to keep it as basic and easy to understand as possible. First off, you may be wondering, “does that mean that every time I have a negative thought, it comes true?” And the answer to that would be no. From what I’ve come to understand, we’re always manifesting, both intentionally or unintentionally, so not every single random thought that pops up in your brain comes into your reality, but if you tend to be someone who sees the glass half empty, or you feel like nothing ever works out in your favor and that the universe is out to get you, you may attract more negative experiences into your reality. On the flip side, if you’re a person who tries to see the best in every situation, you’ll be more likely to attract more positivity into your life. I think it’s safe to say that your perspective on life can, in some ways, determine how things work out for you as well. Next, I want to discuss manifestation, and some “spells” or rituals I’ve come across while studying spirituality and the Law of Attraction.

Manifestation is basically the action of bringing something into your physical reality. For example, say you really want a new car. You look at pictures of this car everyday, you visualize yourself driving it, imagining how fresh and new the interior smells and smooth the car drives. Then one day, you go to the dealership, and the exact car you want happens to be available and in your price range! You’ve manifested this car into your reality, and now it’s really yours. I’ve seen stories of people manifesting numerous things, even things you may not have thought were possible. There are people who’ve manifested relationships, their dream school, a new apartment, money, and even physical body changes with the Law of Attraction. So how can all of this be done, exactly? Well, the first step is to know what you want. Then, you can visualize, or or script (physically write down) what it would feel like to have this particular thing in your life.

Another huge step in the manifestation process is gratitude, any spirituality/astrology/law of attraction guru will tell you this. In order to attract more abundance and positivity into your life, you must first genuinely appreciate and be grateful for what you already have that way, you will only attract more of that. You want to manifest a romantic relationship/more love? Be grateful for the friends and family that you love and love you already. Want to see more money in your bank account? Feel gratitude for the money in your possession now. Sure you don’t have as much money as you’d like, but are your bills paid? Is there food in your stomach? This again goes back to the whole perspective thing.


And lastly, simply let go. Try not to obsess over your manifestation. Don’t worry about the when, the where, the how, the who, etc. It’s all about believing in yourself as well as the Universe/God. Trust that what you want is already on its way. A good metaphor that was said by a spirituality & Law of Attraction youtuber I watch named Leeor Alexandra (you should check her out, by the way), is, when you’re at a restaurant, you don’t follow the waiter around asking about your meal, or stand over the shoulder of the cook in the kitchen, constantly making sure they cook your food right. You put in the order, wait, and it comes out to you just how you ordered it, so think of manifestation as just that, putting in your order with the Universe and waiting for it to arrive to you. Now I want to add, sometimes our desires don’t happen in the exact way we’d like them to, but usually that’s because there is a much greater purpose for us that maybe we can’t see yet. 

Now let’s talk about some rituals you can perform to make your manifestations come true. Scripting is probably my favorite method of manifesting. You simply take a notebook & pen, and write down a whole scenario of you receiving what you want, for example, “I’m so grateful for my new relationship! Me and my boy/girlfriend are so happy and in love, we do this thing and this thing together, my boy/girlfriend is so this and that…” you get the idea. This method can be used for just about any situation. You can have so much fun with this, just let your imagination wander, write down whatever your heart desires. Now, you can read your script everyday, script something every single day, or script once and never think about it again. Some people will say different things, but I think it also just depends on what works best for you.

Another popular manifestation method is visualization. This is pretty self explanatory, you just close your eyes, and picture yourself with that thing you want; maybe it’s longer hair, a new car, moving into your own place, anything. I recently learned about the 17 second method from Abraham Hicks (the pseudonym for the popular  L.O.A authors Esther & Jerry Hicks), and this is where you hold a single thought in your mind for 17 seconds, because at that point you will have created a stronger vibration for the thing you desire. I’d imagine the longer you hold this thought, the stronger the vibration you create, thus manifesting your desire.

There’s also the 5×55 method, or the 3×33, 2×22, etc, where you pick an affirmation, ex: “I attract money easily and frequently”. You write this affirmation 55 times a day for 5 days, or 33 times a day for 3 days, 22 times a day for 2 days, whatever you feel like, and feel gratitude and happiness while you’re writing your affirmation. Once you’re completely done with each day, you simply let go of the outcome and wait for your manifestation to come to you. 

Having a vision board is a fun and creative way to manifest as well. All you do is take pictures and quotes from online or on magazines and put them on some type of board where you can look at it every day for inspiration. Pinterest is an amazing way to do this as well because you can have multiple boards for so many things!

In spirituality and astrology, the moon is a major part of manifesting. Even more so during the new moon, it’s believed that the energy from the moon is great for new beginnings and proclaiming what you want to manifest into your life. Some people even make “moon water”, where they take a jar, fill it with water, maybe even put some crystals in it, and leave it outside under the full moon. I think the idea is to drink the water after it’s been charged with the moon’s energy, or even bathe in it as well. 

There are many more ways to practice the Law of Attraction than the ones I discussed in this article. Ever since quarantine began, I’ve taken such a deep dive into the world of astrology and spirituality. It’s amazing to think that there are so many possibilities and potential outcomes in our lives. I do also want to clarify, you usually have to take action when you want something, like, you can’t just sit on your couch and watch Netflix all day, and expect a million dollars to land into your bank account (if you can do that, I’m jealous, and I applaud you). Manifestation is about trusting a higher power, but also going after your dreams, and trusting that it will all work out in your favor. And by the way, there are tons of resources to learn more about spirituality & the Law of Attraction, Youtube, and Pinterest being two of my favorites. There’s also a documentary called “The Secret” on Netflix that gives a basic understanding of the Law of Attraction. If you want to learn more about it, I suggest starting there. I hope that this article gave you some new insight as well as the confidence to go after what you want because you deserve it! Happy manifesting!
