How to Manifest with the Pillow Method

Are you ready to shift your reality? The pillow method manifestation technique is a powerful way to manifest your desires, whether it be changes in your relationships, mindset, job or love life.

    What is the Pillow Method?

    The pillow method is a simple law of attraction technique that can be used to shift reality. It delves into the deep inner workings of your subconscious mind by signalling new a positive messages to the brain.

    The technique itself is practiced by setting an intention for your desired reality before bed, writing it down on a piece of paper, placing it under your pillow and visualising this desire before you sleep. 

    Writing your intention down is a crucial step as you physicalise your desires onto paper. Although this is a simple manifestation method there are a few things you need to know before getting started.

    How Does the Pillow Method Work?

    The pillow method uses the law of attraction to manifest a shift in your reality. The law of attraction is said to be the most intrinsic and unchangeable laws of the universe; meaning it applies to every single one of us without exception. It’s the belief that whatever you focus on becomes your reality. This works both in the positive and the negative.

    For example, if you're someone who thinks negatively about everything then you will attract more negative experiences and vice vera.

    Shifting this mindset by using the pillow method before bed is a powerful way to allow new positive thoughts to seep into your subconscious mind as you sleep. It shifts your focus to your desires and draws these positive shifts into your reality. 

    Pillow Method & Subconscious Mind

    Practicing the pillow method is an incredible way to reprogram the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is on a constant loop. You think around 90% of the same thoughts today as you did yesterday. Basically, you’re on autopilot and you don’t even realise it. 

    If you're dominant subconscious loop is anxious, fearful, negative or sad then your mind will continue to reiterate these feelings to you, which can lead to both physical and mental health issues. Shifting these thoughts without the awareness of your auto-pilot default is extremely difficult.

    When you’re in a negative mindset, you will keep attracting negative experiences. If you don’t truly believe that your pillow method manifestation will come true, then you’re essentially blocking your manifestation. 

    How to Do the Pillow Method 

    While practicing this technique it's important to match your visualisation to a heightened emotion. You can't simply just say "I want 'x'" over and over, you need to feel it as if it's already true. This will help to boost the signals of change to your brain. It takes around 30 days for the brain to create new neural pathways to shift your reality, so it’s advised to practice this method everyday for a month. 

    The key to this technique is to visualise your desired reality right before going to sleep. This way it's the last thought that you have before slipping into a restful state of consciousness. This visualisation will continue to resonate in the subconscious mind for the next 8 hours or so as you sleep.

    Step 1 Write Your Shifting Script 

    Take some time to think about what it is you want to manifest. When choosing your desired reality think about it in very specific detail; you can ask yourself questions like:

    • What is my desired reality?
    • What do I look like when I’ve manifested this reality?
    • Who have I become?
    • What am I doing?
    • What does it feel like?
    • Who is around me?
    • What does my life look like?

    The more detail and thought that you put into your shifting script, the more you’ll be able to visualise and manifest this reality. Once you've answered these questions and worked out the details, write down exactly what it is you desire. For example: I am living in my own incredible studio apartment in the city, I am independent, I love my job and I'm thriving. 

    Step 2 Place the Script Under Your Pillow 

    This step is super simple; just place your written script under your pillow. 

    Step 3 Visualise & Feel Your Desired Reality 

    Now that you’ve chosen your desired reality and placed your script underneath your pillow, it’s time to visualise your manifestation. Get into bed and take some deep breaths to relax. Before you go to sleep, use your imagination to visualise your desired reality. 

    Picture your desired reality in as much detail as you can. Remember you’re using the law of attraction so you need to truly believe and feel that this manifestation is real. For example; visualise your new apartment in the city, see the room, the furniture, who’s there with you, what are you doing, how do you feel? 

    Experience this visualisation as if it has already come true. This will elicit a powerful response from the body as you match your emotional frequency to that of your desire.

    Step 4 Sleep

    If you get distracted while trying to visualise your desired reality, that’s okay. You'll probably veer in and out of this thought. When you realise that you’ve become distracted, turn your thoughts back to your visualisation. It’s important that this is the last thought that you have before falling asleep. 

    Final Thoughts

    The pillow method is a great manifestation technique for beginners. Ensuring that you're matching your visualisation with a high emotional frequency will boost signals to the brain to signify change. As you sleep the subconscious mind begins to create new neural pathways to attract and manifest your desired reality.
