7 Things To Do With Your Manifestation Paper Once Finished

If you’re interested in manifesting by writing, you probably wonder what you should do with your manifestation paper after you’re finished with the exercise. You have a few options to try. And different things are better for different purposes. Here are seven things you can do with your manifestation paper once you finish working with it.


1- Burn your manifestation paper

The first option is to burn your manifestation paper. This is probably the most popular option, as it’s seen as releasing your desires to the universe. The act of writing them down and then burning them is supposed to help you let go and trust that the universe will provide.

How to burn your manifestation paper:
Write your desires on a piece of paper. Include as much detail as possible. Once you’re finished, fold up the paper and then light it on fire in a safe place. Watch it burn until it’s completely ashes. As you do, imagine your desires coming true.


2- Save it for later

If you’re not ready to let go of your manifestation paper, you can save it for later. This could be a good option if you’re not sure about your desires or if you want to keep them top of mind.

The best option for this would be to create a manifestation journal.

You can do this by purchasing a simple notebook or 3-ring binder, where you punch holes in your manifestation paper and then file them all in the same place.

The benefit of saving your manifestation paper is that you can look back and reflect on your progress. This is a good way to track your growth and see how far you’ve come.

The bad thing about this is that it can cause you to obsess over whether the law of attraction is working or not.

Ideally, you would be able to set your manifestation and forget it so that the universe can have time to bring your desire.

So it depends on the type of person you are and how you would react to looking back on your manifestation paper.


3- Place it underneath your pillow at night

Third, you might want to place your manifestation paper underneath your pillow at night. This exercise is called the pillow method.

The idea is that as you sleep, your subconscious mind will work on manifesting your desires. And by placing the paper under your pillow, you’ll be reminded of what you’re working on when you wake up in the morning.

To do this, simply write your manifestation on a piece of paper and then place it underneath your pillow before you go to sleep.

Depending on the size of your manifestation and the amount of resistance you have toward your desire, you can do this for 8 days up to 33 days.

The reason 33 days is the maximum number of days is that that’s how long it takes to form a new habit.

And since you’re trying to create a new habit of attracting your desire, you don’t want to go over that time frame.


4- Bury your manifestation paper

Another option for you is to bury your manifestation paper. This is similar to burning it, but it’s a little more final.

When you bury your manifestation paper, you’re essentially releasing it to the universe and saying that you’re ready for it to come into your life.

A very common and highly-effective manifestation method for money is to write your money affirmation on a piece of paper, then plant it in a new potted plant.

This works best if it’s an indoor plant stored on a window sill because you would water and nurture this plant every day.

As your plant grows, so will your money.


5- Read it every day

Next, you might want to consider reading your manifestation paper every day. This is a good option if you want to keep your desires top of mind but don’t want to obsess over them.

The key here is to read it once and then let it go. Don’t spend hours worrying about whether or not it’s going to come true.

This could actually work against you.

Furthermore, another neat little trick if you want to read your manifestation every day is to create a list of things you want to manifest.

But also, add some things that you already have and are grateful or excited for.

Then, when you read the list that contains both things you want to manifest and things that you already have, your subconscious mind will start to believe that you already have everything on the list.

This neat little trick can help you bypass any limiting beliefs without much extra work.


6- Mail it to yourself

Another effective manifestation method that deals with writing your manifestation is mailing your manifestation to yourself.

This works best as the scripting method.

An excellent example of how this works is let’s say you want to manifest your specific person to fall in love with you.

You would sit down and pretend you are this person and write a love letter to yourself from their point of view.

Then, sign it like them, date it, and mail it to yourself.

When you receive the letter in the mail, you open it and read it and try to envision feeling exactly as you would if the letter came from them.

It’s a way of making it feel more real to you.

Another example of this could be manifesting acceptance into college or university. Or even a job offer.

You could type up a letter of acceptance, admission, or hiring and mail that to yourself just the same way.

When you receive the letter, you can read it and feel the joy and happiness as if it’s already happened.


7- Throw it away

Last but not least, you can always choose to throw your manifestation paper away.

This is a good option if you feel like you’ve been obsessing over your desire too much or if you’re starting to doubt yourself.

Remember, the more resistance you have toward your desire, the longer it’s going to take to manifest.

And if you’re feeling a lot of resistance, it might be a good idea to take a break from thinking about it for a while.

It’s true that some of the other options would likely bring you better results because they enhance the emotion of your desire.

But if throwing it away is what you need to do in order to let go of the resistance, then that’s what you should do.

Now that you know the seven options you have for your manifestation paper once you’re finished with it, let’s talk about some other questions you may have about what to do after manifestations.



What do you say at the end of your manifestation?

After you’ve written down your desire, it’s important to thank the universe for what you want as if you’ve already received it.

This helps to shift your focus from lack to abundance and creates a sense of gratitude.

It also allows you to release any attachment to the outcome and trust that the universe will provide.

You can say something simple like “so be it, so shall it be.”


What do you do after a manifestation?

After your manifestation is complete, you should try to go about your day as if you already know your manifestation is on its way.

This sends a powerful signal to the universe that you’re confident and that you’re not attached to the outcome.

If your manifestation is about a specific person, try not to obsess over them or how it’s going to happen.

And if your manifestation is about something else, don’t spend all day worrying about whether or not it will come true.

The more you trust and have faith, the better.


How do you end a journal entry for manifestation?

If you are manifesting on paper by writing a journal entry, you can simply end the entry by thanking the universe for what you want and affirming that you trust that it will come to pass.

You might also want to spend a few minutes writing about how you feel after completing your manifestation journal entry.

Are you feeling hopeful? Excited? Disconnected? All of these emotions are valid and can help you understand what might be holding you back from fully believing in your manifestation.


What is the fastest way to manifest on paper?

The fastest way to manifest on paper is the 55×5 method. In most cases, you can manifest your desire in as few as five days.

The 555 method is a great manifestation method for beginners because it’s quick and easy and you don’t need any special materials to get started.


Final thoughts

No matter what you choose, know that the power of manifestation comes from within you. The act of writing things down certainly doesn’t hurt, but it’s your intention and focus that will really make things happen. So choose what feels right for you and go for it!
