“I am the master of my fate”
“I am the captain of my soul.” -William Ernest Henley
As we move through our everyday lives, the lives we dream about can feel far away. But in truth, we are always plugged into the cosmic stream of possibility. The realities we desire are closer than we think.
In fact, you are the steam of possibility. If you have a piece of paper, a pen, and a few minutes to spare, the 55×5 manifestation method may be the key to transforming your life. Of all the manifestation methods, this is one of the simplest.
With this method, you write down your manifestations 55 times a day for 5 days in a row. This guide will give you step-by-step instructions for this easy but powerful manifestation technique. But first, let’s explain the spiritual foundations of 55×5.
5 and 55 are Powerful Numbers for Self-Determination
Reddit and TikTok are brimming with 55×5 manifestation method success stories. But you will notice that one question comes up again: Why 55×5? Why not some other numbers?
Is the Number Very Important for Manifestation?
There are two diverging schools of thought. One is that the numbers do not matter at all. The other is that they do. But there is a third way of looking at the matter, and that is that whether or not the numbers matter depends largely on you.
To manifest your desires, you call on universal laws like the Law of Attraction to make your wishes a reality. The Law of Attraction explains that simply focusing on your desires with intent is enough to bring them into your life.
The Law of Attraction always works when you write down or say a manifestation, so long as you do so with laser focus and faith.
So, where do 55 and 5 come in? We use these numbers because of what they represent in numerology.
Numerological Significance of the Number 5
The number 5 is linked to freedom, self-determination, and the spirit of adventure. 55 is what we call an “Angel Number,” or “Master Number,” with its repeating digits. You can think of it as self-determination squared.
Self-determination is ultimately what manifestation is all about. As you visualize your ideal life and will it to become real, you are charting your own course through the cosmos. You are the master of your own destiny.
Using 5 and 55 as you manifest lets you really focus on not just what you want to manifest, but also on your own personal power.
The more you believe in yourself and your ability to shape your own life, the more successful your manifestations will be.
So, if the numbers 5 and 55 are calling to you, answering their call by choosing this technique could be just what you need to break through your limiting beliefs to discover true freedom.
How to Do the 55×5 Manifestation Method Step by Step
Below are the instructions for the 55×5 manifestation technique. The only prerequisites are a piece of paper, a pen or pencil, and some time to sit down and focus.
1. Compose your affirmation in the present tense.
The first step is to choose an affirmation. In the present tense, express what you desire to manifest.
2. Write your affirmation 55 times.
Next, write out the affirmation 55 times. Ideally, you should not take a break. You can set down your pen to rest your hand, but you should complete all 55 affirmations before you get up to do something else.
You may be wondering what time of day is ideal for writing the manifestations. If possible, you should aim for the morning when you wake up or at night before you go to sleep.
At these two times of day, you have a stronger link to your unconscious and the world of your dreams.
That being said, it takes a bit of a time investment to write down your affirmations 55 times. So, the best time of day may simply be whatever time slot you can reliably set aside and feel motivated to do it.
Writing at the same time each day can help you establish a rhythm. But it is also not absolutely necessary. You can vary the times if you need to.
3. Write the affirmations 5 days in a row.
Do this step above for 5 consecutive days. By the time you finish, you will have written your manifestation a total of 275 times.
4. Believe in your personal power.
As you write, do so in the spirit of 5 and 55. Trust in your capabilities. Know that you are a divine being. You are a co-creator in this Universe, and you can sail your ship through life’s seas on the heading you desire.
When you set down your pen, release your desires as the Law of Detachment teaches you. Know that you have set in motion the events that will bring your wishes closer with every day. Trust in the process.
55×5 Manifestation Examples
Let’s give a couple of examples of how 55×5 can work. Imagine you want to buy your dream home, but you are not confident the seller will accept your offer. Each day, you write 55 times:
Example 1: “We are so happy to be living in our dream home at (address).”
As you write, you visualize yourself and your family in the home. You imagine how you will decorate it and where your furnishings will be. You bask in the warm glow of cozy comfort you associate with the feeling of “home.”
You ground yourself in the calm and confidence that comes with knowing you are the master of your fate and your home is your castle. Most importantly, you picture all of this as if it is true right now.
Just 3 days into the process, the seller contacts you to let you know they are accepting your offer. Their plans have changed and they are now willing to accept a lower price to close the deal quickly. The home is yours!
For another example, let’s say it has been your lifelong dream to work as a baker. You decide to start a business selling your pastries online. For 5 days consecutively, you write 55 times:
Example 2: “I am making a full-time living selling my pastries online.”
As you write, you picture yourself baking your pastries, checking orders online, and packing and shipping. You imagine the delight you bring to customers across the country, and the joy and accomplishment you feel as your earnings roll in. Your business is your ship, and you are its captain, sailing for bold horizons.
During the 5 days, you also start registering your business and setting up shop online. As you do, you hold those same images and feelings in your head.
It takes some time before your first sale comes in, but you never let go of that faith, that confidence. The Law of Assumption tells you that your dream will harden into fact.
When you do make your first sale, it feels exactly like you pictured. Within a few months, you start gaining some traction. Within a year, you are able to quit your day job and bake for a living.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long does it take 55×5 manifestation method to work?
You might be wondering if 55×5 works within 5 days. The answer is “sometimes.” Other times, it may take longer.
You can keep writing your manifestations longer than 5 days if you want, but you do not have to.
The most important thing is simply to maintain the mindset you cultivated as you wrote. Know that the power of self-determination is on your side. When the Universe finds the right time to fulfill your wishes, you will manifest the outcome you desire.
Q: Do you need a 55×5 manifestation worksheet?
No. 55×5 manifestation templates and worksheets are popular, and many people search for them. If using one helps put you in the mindset to manifest, it might be worth looking for one.
But you can do 55×5 with a regular piece of paper and a pen as well, with no worksheet or template necessary.
