We all are running at a high pace, trying to build a future that has no certainty. We all dream of money, a house, cars, success, fame, good relationships, etc.; however, sometimes it gets tough for us to believe that we can have the entire cake for ourselves. Don’t worry, in this article, you will get to know a technique through which you can not only have the entire cake but also eat it. It is a one-word method called MANIFESTATION but has unlimited power. This can help you achieve anything and everything you want.
What is manifesting?
It is a technique that helps you turn your dreams into reality by changing and altering your thoughts and emotions. There are numerous ways in which you can manifest your dreams and bring the law of attraction to work. Amongst the multiple manifestation methods, the pillow method is a simple technique with little fuss. You don’t need much understanding for it. The pillow method can be used by anyone and everyone.
Manifest Your Dreams in Six Simple Steps
Set a clear goal
The pillow method starts with the idea of having a clear goal in mind. The famous author Constance Lane Arnold says,
When you are truly clear about what you want, the whole universe stands on tiptoe waiting to assist you in miraculous and amazing ways to manifest your dream or intention.”
I believe in manifestation because I have experienced it. Similarly, you will believe in it when you experience it. So, start with something small and see how the manifesting magic works for you. Once you have started to believe in manifestation you can now ask for as much bigger things as you want.
You want a car for yourself. Now, the first thing that you need to do is to have a fixed goal in your mind. Think about the color of the car, its brand, its outlook, its comfort, and everything else. Always remember the universe will only manifest everything for you when your mind is clear. If your goal is vague, then what you receive from the universe will also be vague. Setting a goal is not enough, believing in it is what will give you the results. So, never set a goal that you don’t believe in.
Write your goal on a piece of paper
Now, when you know what you want from the universe, write it down on a piece of paper. Here are some tips that you can follow while writing your goal:
- Always write your goal in the present tense
- Show gratitude in the very beginning; it will help you align your intention with what you want
If you want a car, you can say –
Thank you Universe, for giving me this new car. It has all the features I ever wanted and I am enjoying driving this new car.”
Writing it in the present tense gives the universe signal that your mind is clear of what you want. Also, always remember that if you are grateful for what you have, then the universe will give you more such chance to be grateful for. So, this step converts your goal into a positive affirmation. Writing your affirmation down will take you one step closer to your dream. While writing, you can read your affirmation loud, or you can even imagine it. Do whatever suits you the best.
It’s time to get ready for sleep
Now, you know your goal, and you have also written it down, so it’s time to do your favorite thing, conclude all your works, and get ready to sleep. Before going to your bed, make sure you are done with everything, from brushing your teeth to checking your phone. Once you get on your bed and lie down, you are not allowed to leave.
Write your affirmations on a piece of paper and place this paper close to your heart or below your pillow. According to me, the paper should be placed below your pillow as the chance of the paper being misplaced is reduced. This act is quite similar to what we used to do at Christmas. Just keep that paper below your pillow and imagine that your Santa will come and give you everything you asked for. When going to sleep, let go of everything. Relax and sleep. All you need to do is tire your conscious mind with the right intention and emotion. After this, let the subconscious mind do its work. When going to sleep, just lie down on your bed and relax your body. Think about the affirmation you have written on the paper, also visualize it if you can.
The Law of attraction works when your mind, emotions, and thoughts are well aligned with what you want. Our mind is a wanderer, the moment you stop focusing, it will start functioning in a chaotic manner. Never allow your mind to think any negative thoughts. Let your mind breathe only positive thoughts; this will enable you to reap positive fruits as well.
The easiest way to think positive and avoid all the negative thoughts is gratitude. It might seem a bit silly in the beginning but trust me it works. All you need to do is when you get up in the morning, think and write 5-10 things that you are grateful for. Now, this can be anything, for example, I am grateful for my health, I am grateful to be able to breathe, I am grateful for having my job, I am grateful for living in my own house, etc. In the beginning, you might not even find things that you should be grateful for. But don’t worry there are ample things that you should be grateful for and eventually you will be able to find them. Tell the universe that you are thankful for everything you have, and the universe will respond by giving you more. Trust me, showing gratitude is the best way to attract more in your life.
The next step is to visualize your goals and affirmations. Now, I know that some of you might find visualization to be tough and think that you can’t do it, but listen to me, close your eyes right now and imagine a camel or a toilet or a school or a red rose. Did you see the picture of anything that has been mentioned above? The answer would be yes. So, this proves that you too can visualize things.
Just imagine that whatever you have written is already there with you. Now, think about how it looks, how it works, how you feel. Think of anything and everything related to it. If you still find it difficult to visualize then see a picture or video of that goal and now close your eyes and imagine it again. So, when you lie down on your bed, visualize your goal at least 5-6 times. Initially, it would be tough, but remember, the more you practice, the more it gets easier.
Now comes the easiest part, i.e., to sleep. So, now you have a goal written on a piece of paper, which happens to be below your pillow. You have also done with gratitude and visualization, so relax and give yourself a good sleep.
You are asleep, but your subconscious mind isn’t. It is working for you so that you can finally see your dreams turn into reality. Just give your command to your subconscious mind and it will do everything you ask it for. Don’t doubt the process, your work has been done, and now all you need to do is trust the universe and the subconscious mind. Belief is the key to manifestation, so have no doubts in mind while you are manifesting your dreams. Also, never forget that the subconscious mind and the universe work for you so they will never upset you. While you are asleep let the magic happen.
Pillow Method: How it Works?
By now, we have come to know that we sleep at night but our subconscious mind works 24*7. It is working when you are sleeping, it is working when you are partying, it is working when you are presenting a seminar. So, in short, it is working every second, or for that matter, every nanosecond. You can use this time to turn your dream into reality. When you are finally asleep, a minor transition happens in your brainwaves. You shift from beta/alpha brainwaves to theta brainwaves. Now, when you are in this theta brainwave, you are more open to suggestions, changes, and innovations. So, this is ideally the best time to program your subconscious mind. Never let this time slip out of your hand, utilize it to your best. Many of us think that our dreams are not in our control, but that is not the true story. If you are aware, and you take the necessary steps, then you can control your dreams too. The pillow method is a simple and easy technique to manifest your dreams. The working of the same is also easy.
Pillow Method: Is it Trustworthy?
The pillow method majorly does three things:
- It gives your goal positive backing.
- It tells the universe what you want.
- It tells your subconscious mind the right thing to focus on.
The pillow method has been a trustworthy process for me because I have achieved a lot of things through this technique. You will also start believing the method once you start receiving everything from the universe. But always remember, you can only manifest your dreams into reality if you believe them. If your mind is full of doubts, then let me be clear, you will not achieve what you want. So, if you think negatively about the law of attraction, it will not work for you, but again, if you trust the process, the entire universe will start working for you. So, I would suggest you that at least for once believe in the process and take a leap of faith. The magic is there, and I assure you about that. Go for it, and you will experience it. I fell in love with the pillow method because of its simplicity. There is no complexity in the process. It is a pure and soulful technique that you can include in your nighttime routine. Abraham Hicks puts the entire process of manifestation into simple words when he says,
As you think you vibrate. As you vibrate you attract.”
Do I have to write my affirmation daily on a piece of paper and put it below my pillow?
I believe that you should write the affirmation daily and put it below your pillow. You can stop this process when you have finally achieved your dream; however, if you don’t want to write it daily, then you can use the same paper but don’t forget to visualize.
What if some doubts pop up in my mind again and again?
Don’t worry. The more you try to control it, the more easily it will slip from your hands. Whenever a negative thought comes to your mind just start practicing gratitude. The problem will get solved.
Does the process work?
It has worked for me and for many more out there. Trust me, it will work for you as well. Just trust the process and go for it.
What can I manifest from the pillow method?
Anything and everything you want. There are absolutely no restrictions, you just have to set a goal, write it down, put it below your pillow, visualize it and finally go off to sleep. You can ask for money, a house, fame, success, and everything else.
