A manifestation box is a super fun way to play with the law of attraction, and it's a technique that I've had a lot of instant success with.
In this article, I'm going to share what a manifestation box is, how to use it and why it's such a powerful manifestation tool.
I have to share something with you guys that I tried and have had some amazingly creepy, fun results with. I recently acquired a small box that I call my manifestation box. I've been putting small intentions and desires I want to manifest into the box and they've all literally been manifesting; I'm mind-blown!
How do you use a manifestation box?
I was browsing through some inspirational articles one night and stumbled across an interesting manifestation technique. The idea is to find a small, plain box and make it special to you. Infuse it with your love and energy, decorate it with stickers or glitter, anoint it with your favorite essential oil, maybe put a small clear quartz crystal in it, etc. Whatever would make it feel sacred and special to you.
Next, think of something you want to manifest, which I recommend something fun and light as opposed to starting with one of your deepest desires. Write it down on a small piece of paper and put it inside the intention box. Every day, you read the paper/s and imagine the dream happening, feeling how you would feel as if they had happened. This causes you to come into vibrational alignment with the desire.
You then close the box and put it away, visualizing that the box is receiving the positive energy of the Universe in your absence and you let it go from your mind.
I love the concept of putting something out of mind while feeling that it's "being taken care of". It takes the anxiety out of manifesting that sometimes develops when we're too focused on something manifesting, which is really where I think the power of this manifestation practice comes into play.
What I manifested using the manifestation box technique
I started by putting in a few different random, kind of vague-ish things that I would love to have happen, but wouldn't be bummed if they didn't. One of them was to have a blog post go viral and one was to receive amazing news. Two things that I don't necessarily need to happen, but it would just be fun they did.
Every night the first week I looked at these little pieces of paper and just let myself fantasize for a moment about what it would feel like to have a post go viral or to receive amazing news. I really got into the mood of it. I sat there with a huge, cheesy smile on my face and then put the papers back in the wish box, closed it and put it away. Lastly, I envisioned a funnel of energy going to my box and allowed myself to forget about it.
Later that same week my husband randomly asked me if I wanted to go to San Diego. I love San Diego and didn't think we'd be able to go anytime soon, therefore it wasn't even on my radar. So to say I was delightfully shocked when he asked me would be an understatement. That was my amazing news! I felt the same emotions in that moment I had been conjuring up during my "manifestation box ritual" every night while visualizing receiving amazing news.
That same week, I had blog posts go live on both The Huffington Post and Scary Mommy, one day apart from each other. My blog stats skyrocketed, and I once again found myself feeling the same emotions I had been conjuring earlier in my manifestation practice with the box. Friends were tagging me and re-sharing my articles. Other big sites were emailing me and asking if they could republish the article with links back to my site.
It was just really fun.
The following week I went to San Diego and published two usual, "non-exciting" blog posts. I didn't have anything in the works with Huffington or anyone else. I definitely wasn't expecting to go viral again or to receive more "amazing news". I was enjoying the previous week's manifestations and was in still in awe over them.
The day I got back from San Diego, on a Saturday night, I got news from a friend telling me that Scary Mommy had shared my previous week's post from Huffington on their Facebook page. Not only was that amazing news, but once again, my blog stats went through the roof! For a blogger, this is awesome because not only does your ad revenue increase, but so do other opportunities every time you're in the public eye like that.
The following week, I had another post go viral on Huffington, going to the front page of their site, being the featured story in Huffpost Weddings, and being shared on four of their Facebook pages, including their main one. A friend let me know again that it had been shared on multiple pages and took that screenshot for me. Amazing news and just continuously flowing fun, once again.
That's a photo of my husband and I arm-in-arm on the front page of the Wedding section.
How to create and use a manifestation box
Find a small box and put a few intentions you want to manifest inside it. Let me officially recap the steps.
1. Find or create a small box.
2. Take a few little pieces of paper and write down some intentions. I didn't put more than two intentions in mine.
3. When you put the papers into the box, take a moment with each intention and just envision it actually happening. How would you feel? Would you call someone, shouting in excitement? Would you jump up and down and run through your house like a psycho? Totally pumped up and freaking out? The more emotion you can feel, the better. Do this for like 5 minutes a day.
4. After you visualize your intentions, put the papers in the box, close it and put it away with the intention that energy will be flowing to your box in your absence. The Universe will be taking care of the behind-the-scenes and will surprise you. You have no idea how it will happen and don't try to figure it out. Just go about your business as usual.
Why does a manifestation box work so well?
It works so well because it helps us let go of our desire rather than dwelling on the fact that we don't have it or haven't experienced it yet.
When you have faith that it's taken care of and you relax, are in an open, allowing state of receiving, paired with expectation that something exciting is going to happen...exciting things do happen.
This Universe we live in is a very abundant, giving universe. Things are rigged to go in your favor. You just have to believe that.
