A manifestation jar can be a valuable tool if you are looking for a way to focus all the energy of your manifestation efforts.
This guide will teach you how a regular glass jar can help you transform your dreams into realities. We will walk you through the easy steps to create your own manifestation jar and give you some simple but powerful tips to use it effectively.
What is a Manifestation Jar?
A manifestation jar, sometimes called a dream jar, is an ordinary jar in which you place a piece of paper that contains your written wishes.
When you create a manifestation jar, you can also fill it with assorted objects expressing your desire for the Universe.
These jars work via the Law of Attraction. What you attract into your life depends on where you put your focus, and what energy you vibrate with.
The process of making the jar is like a magical ritual that focuses your attention and raises the frequency of your energy, pulling what you want toward you.
How to Make a Manifestation Jar?
So, how do you manifest with an everyday jar? Here are the steps for how to create your own manifestation jar.
1. Choose the right vessel for your desires.
Your first step is to pick a jar to use. Literally, any jar is fine. In fact, it does not even have to be a jar. It can be any type of container.
Most people favour regular glass jars, but some might prefer a jar that invokes a particular feeling or resonates with their goals in some way.
For example, let’s say your goal is to take your dream trip to Egypt, and you happen to have a jar made in Egypt. It makes sense to use it.
2. Personalize the jar (optional).
If you want, you can use the jar exactly as it is and jump directly to the next step. But if you would like, you can customize your jar by decorating it in some way.
This step is just one more way for you to focus on what you want and make your jar represent your wishes.
3. Write down your affirmation and add it to the jar.
Next, simply get a scrap of paper and write what you want on it. We suggest expressing your wish in the present tense as an affirmation (more on that later).
Once you have written down your wish, add it to the jar.
4. Call on the power of herbs, crystals, and other items.
To continue our example above where you want to manifest a trip to Egypt, calendula might be a good herb to add. This herb is associated with the sun (a number of ancient Egyptian gods are linked to the sun). It also is good for prosperity (you will need money for your trip).
A great crystal to add to any manifestation jar is quartz. It is a powerful energy booster, and it is useful for clearing your mind and dispelling doubts.
You can also place other items inside your jar that resonate with your will. Continuing the Egypt example, a couple of ideas might be some sand and an ankh pendant.
5. Choose the right place for the jar.
Once you have finished making your jar, you just need to find a suitable spot for it. The most common practice is to place it in a location where you will see it often. We will talk more about what to do with it later in this post.
An alternative option would be to make use of the principles of Feng Shui. With the “manifest a trip to Egypt” example, you could put the jar in the front right corner of your home, which is the travel corner.
Tips for Using a Manifestation Jar Effectively
How well a manifestation jar works depends on if you follow best practices. Here are some tips that will help you succeed:
- Before you get started, sit down and think about what you want to manifest. Get as specific about your goal as possible, and make sure your desire aligns with your true nature and will.
- Write your affirmation in the present tense as if your wish is already granted to invoke the Law of Assumption. For example: “I am at the Great Pyramids, and they are every bit as incredible as I always imagined.”
- Cultivate a mindset of gratitude while you work on your jar. When you are grateful for what you will receive, you release your doubts and trust in the Universe.
What to Do After You Create Your Manifestation Jar
What you do with your manifestation jar after you make it is up to you. A lot of people like to pay attention to it each day, meditating on their belief that they will receive what they request.
Others prefer a “set and forget” approach, where they use the Law of Detachment to surrender control and strengthen faith.
There is no right or wrong answer. Do what feels natural and intuitive to you. Enjoy the process, maintain an open and positive mind, and wait for the Universe to fulfil your deepest desires.
