Pillow Manifestation Technique (A Complete Guide)

Most manifestation techniques need to be practiced in the morning, during the day, or at night. But what if I say you can attract your dreams even while sleeping at night?

You may be surprised, but with the pillow manifestation technique, it is possible.

What Is Pillow Manifestation Technique?

In the pillow manifestation technique, you mindfully write your desires on paper before going to bed, then put that paper under the pillow you sleep on, lie down on the bed, and visualize yourself in possession of your dream. 

This technique may seem simple, but it involves writing, visualizing, and feeling your dream, which makes it super powerful. 

“What you think you become, what you feel you attract, what you imagine you create”


I remember I first used this method two years ago to manifest unexpected money, and within a month, I successfully manifested $500 as a reward for doing a project for my friend.

See, when we write our desires on paper with positive feelings and visualize them as if our reality. It influences our subconscious mind and sends positive vibrations to the universe. 

As like attracts like, we receive what we send to the universe, and nourish through our thoughts and feelings. (We will further discuss this in more detail)

Now, let’s see how to perform this technique step-by-step.

Pillow manifestation technique In 6 Steps

Pillow manifestation technique

Steep 1: Exactly know what you want to manifest

“The man who actually knows just what he wants in life has already gone a long way toward attaining it.”

Napoleon Hill

So, First, brainstorm and decide what you actually want to manifest in the near future. 

However, you may demand several things at a time, but I would suggest narrowing down the wishlist because the fewer desires you have, the better you will be able to focus on each one. 

Remember, energy flows where your attention goes; the more focus on one desire and try to manifest it, the sooner it will manifest into your life. 

It would be great if you set one intention at a time, and once it is done, set another one. 

But still, if you wish to manifest multiple things at a time, make a list of your burning desires and proceed further with this technique.

Step 2: Prepare yourself for practice

First of all, make a concise positive statement or affirmation that encapsulates your intention.

For example, 

  • I am rich and successful
  • I am a money magnet
  • I attract money from all directions
  • I am healthy and fit
  • I am grateful to be in a loving relationship with my soulmate
  • I deserve a beautiful home where I feel happy and abundant

Similarly, make this type of affirmation (in the present tense) each of your desire.

Now, keep the following points in mind before you initiate this pillow method,

  • Make a separate journal that comes with detachable pages and use one page each day to perform this manifestation technique.
  • Practice this technique on your bed just before your bedtime.
  • Make sure no one can disturb you while practicing this.
  • Practice this method with a positive mood.

If you are upset or feeling negative, first change your mood to positive by performing a hobby, listening to a song, meditating for a few minutes, or doing anything that pleases you.

Once everything is good, take one clean paper and pen, and sit on the bed. Then take some deep breaths in and out, and follow the next step.

Step 3: Write your desires on paper

Write all your desires 10 times on paper, or if you have one intention, write it 20 times or more. (there is no fixed count, write as per your convenience)

Stay mindful while writing your intentions, and pay your undivided attention to each word you write. In case, If your mind wanders away, just bring it back to writing. 

You can also speak each affirmation as you write or recite it into your mind. 

This way, your intention sinks deep within your subconscious mind, and your mindset and beliefs get programmed accordingly. 

After finishing writing your desires, gently hold that paper in your hand, and close your eyes. 

Step 4: Cultivate positive emotions and energy

Now, think and feel your dream as if it became your reality, and believe that you are in possession of your dream. (Do this for 5 minutes)

If you can’t believe it firmly, try to cultivate positive emotion, keep faith in your abilities, and trust the universe that your dream will come true one day. Also, pretend you have manifested your dream and be grateful for it.

For the next 5 minutes, visualize yourself full of positive energy, and transfer it to the written paper. 

This way, you energize yourself and the paper with positive vibrations, which eventually reflect back to you while sleeping.

Step 5: Put the paper under the pillow

Now, open your eyes and gently put that energized paper under the pillow you sleep on.

Turn off the lights; it’s time to sleep. 

Step 6: Lie down and visualize

While lying on the bed, think and visualize your desires (as you were doing a few minutes ago)

Visualize yourself in the position where you always want to stand, visualize the change that comes to your life after manifesting, and visualize how people treat you after achieving your dream.

For example, If I want to manifest money

I will think and visualize myself in possession of my money dream. I will imagine checking my back balance that holds the amount I want, visualize that money is coming to me from expected and unexpected ways. 

Thus, make your visualization as clear as possible. It may be difficult in the beginning, but with practice, it would be possible.

Ok, this is how you should follow all six steps and practice the pillow technique daily until you receive your manifestation. 

“There is no man living who can not do what he thinks he can”

Henry Ford

Now, let me explain how this technique works to bring your manifestation into reality.

The science behind the pillow technique

See, when you write your desires over and over again, it positively influences your subconscious mind, produces corresponding thoughts and beliefs, and creates a burning desire to possess your dream. 

Thus, once you have the right mindset and belief about your manifestation, the right thoughts come to your mind, which impels you to take the right kind of action and ultimately leads you toward the manifestation of your desire.

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become actions, Your actions become your habits, And Your habits become your destiny.”

Mahatma Gandhi

When you consciously sleep with a vision of your dream in mind, it directly goes into your subconscious mind, which is hyperactive when you sleep.

The subconscious mind consists of a field of consciousness and it’s a connecting link between the finite mind of man and the infinite universe.

Therefore, when you plant a seed of your intention in your subconscious mind through thoughts and feelings, it spreads into the universe and returns back to you in the form of physical manifestation sooner or later.

The more you focus on one intention and try to manifest it, the more universe could work on it to make that happen. 

Benefits of practicing manifestation technique 

The regular practice of the pillow manifestation technique helps to,

  • Strengthen your manifestation intention 
  • Build the right mindset and belief about your manifestation 
  • Fill positivity within you, especially trust in yourself and the universe
  • Create a burning obsession to receive your manifestation 
  • Impel you to take action and work hard to manifest your desires
  • Activate the law of attraction in your favor

When this manifestation method is practiced regularly, It makes you optimistic and positive. 

As Einstein said, everything is energy vibrating at a certain frequency. 

Therefore, when you think and feel positive, you naturally attract the positive vibrations from the universe, which improve your well-being and materialize your dream into reality. 

Now, you may have understood how powerful the pillow manifestation technique is and how it can bring your manifestation into a physical reality. 

However, some people still question that,

What If Pillow Technique Doesn’t Work?

See, no one can tell you when you will receive your manifestation. Because, It depends on you, the universe, and several other factors, therefore, it may take little or more time to come into existence. 

“Always give your best on everything. No doubt, the results will be in your favor.” 

The only thing you can do is to put best efforts and hope for good. 

However, If you think, when my manifestation will come or why it hasn’t come yet, you’re creating negative vibrations which eventually impair your manifestation. 

Therefore, diligently practice your manifestation rituals, take action to achieve your dream, and keep patience.

See, most people understand that the law of attraction is a magical woo-woo. They believe that their manifest will come just by thinking and dreaming, which is totally wrong in my view.

I believe that when you practice the law of attraction regularly, it only brings the right opportunities, creates favorable situations, and attracts people that can help you progress on the path of manifestation. 

But, at the end, you have to take action and work hard to transmute such conveniences into manifestation. 

Always remember, 

“The universe doesn’t give you what you ask for with your thoughts – it gives you what you demand with your actions.”

Steve Maraboli

Ok, that’s it for today.

I hope you practice the pillow manifestation technique regularly and manifest miracles in life soon.
