Around my home, I have a wide variety of crystals, incense, plants, and other items that I use with my spiritual journey. There are so many tools you can use to manifest, stay grounded, seek guidance or just meditate with that it can quickly get overwhelming. One of my favourite spiritual tools just happens to be the most simplest of things, a manifestation jar. In my last blog post, we took a look at what manifestation magic is and how it works. If you want to explore this further, then this post is for you.
What is a manifestation jar?
A manifestation jar consists of either objects that represent your life and desires, or it can contain strips of paper in which you’ve written down your dreams, hopes, and beliefs. These jars can be a great tool to use if you feel yourself struggling to remain positive when using the law of attraction, or they can be used to ensure that you’re sending out a clear message to the universe regarding what you desire. Many people who follow the LOA use their dream jars as a way to meditate and focus on their desires, several times a day. Once you’ve created a jar, you will feel more inspired, hopeful, and confident in the process.
When using the law of attraction, or the LOA for short, you have to really put in the work and time to make your desires a reality. You have to participate in the process, and do your best to stay positive. This can mean creating a manifestation jar to help with visualizing your dreams and success.
Just a reminder, I love sharing what works for me, so if something doesn't resonate with you, just do what feels right for you and your needs/desires.
Making a manifestation jar
As with any manifestation work, it's important to set clear and precise intentions. You can write it out or type it, but whatever you do, make sure to take time and really think about what you want to manifest. Place your list in your jar and if you wish, you can add items to amplify your intent. In my jar I used salt and rosemary for protection from negative energy, as well as pyrite and green aventurine for financial abundance and prosperity. I also place clear quartz on top of the lid to amplify my intent.
When will my dreams come true?
Not so fast!! Dream jars are similar to visualization boards in the sense that they help you to clearly focus your mind and energy on your dreams and goals. Just by adding a piece of paper to your jar with your goal on it doesn’t mean that all your dreams will come true. Instead, this is a great exercise that can reaffirm your faith in the universe, help to get rid of negative thoughts, inspire you to keep using the LOA, and it can also send out a clearer message to the universe regarding what you want.
I like holding my jar while meditating so I literally have my goals in the palms of my hand. If you're a reiki practitioner, you can also hold your jar as you channel reiki energy during your rituals to further amplify your intent. Whatever you decide to do with your jar, keep it safe in your sacred space or altar.
When it comes to the law of attraction, there are no gimmicks or quick fixes that will help the process to work overnight. But there are tools and exercises that you can use that can strengthen your positive mental energy.
If you've made your own jar, let me know what worked for you. I'd love to hear about it!
