How To Use A Manifestation Bullet Journal
A bullet journal (BUJO for short) consists of bullet points that you can use for writing and drawing. Using a BUJO solely for manifesting is a great way to keep track of your goals, to-do list, thought process, wins, and beliefs. There isn’t an absolute right way to use a bullet journal, but it certainly helps to see examples, as you learn the ropes.
When I started bullet journaling I read a ton of blog posts on different ways to make my spread and eventually I found a rhythm for manifesting, which ultimately led me to create a manifestation bullet journal that touched all the pain points of journaling and planning.
I will admit that I can be a lazy person (which isn’t a bad thing), rather it helps me recognize how to make things easier for myself and others (hooray). Plus, bullet journaling has the added benefit of fostering your overall well-being.
1. Get Clear and Concise About Your Goals
Start with writing down your goals, which can be both short-term and long-term. Do you want to manifest more money, a new house, a vacation, or better overall well-being? Dig deep, ask the hard questions and answer them.
What does it feel like and how does it look to manifest your goals? When thinking about achieving your goals, focus on that feeling – it could be joy, happiness, hope, or rest. Attach yourself to feeling those feels and visualize what the moment you achieve your goals looks like.
How do you want to feel? I remember clearly that feeling of relief and excitement in purchasing our very first home after spending countless years renting with my parents. Sometimes when reminiscing, I can recall that feeling of joy and a deep sense of relief.
How do you intend to manifest these goals? If purchasing a house is something you want to manifest, then focus on the way in which you will reach those next steps. Will you save, borrow money or purchase a small home, and upgrade later? Be clear with your intentions and then set them. Take it moment by moment.
2. Flex Your Creative Muscle
YAY – we’ve gotten to the best part of using a bullet journal! Bullet journals are an awesome tool to use to express your thoughts and feelings in color. Take out your favorite pencil crayons, markers, or colorful zebra pens (my favorite tool) and get started. Draw flowers, stars, the sky, anything, and everything is a go. Pair your creativity with your plans and get those colorful juices flowing.
Bullet journaling is a fun way to let your goals, ambitions, and plans take flight. Turn the chaos of coordinating your life into a streamlined system. I sometimes doodle just the most random things to express myself.
3. Design Your Own System
Include an index with page numbers that link to different pages in your journal, so you can reference it as you go. Use a yearly, monthly, and weekly log to follow important dates and track your progress through the year.
With the manifestation bullet journal, I created, you can track affirmations, and manifestations, and keep a gratitude log, on either a monthly or weekly basis. I often like to keep a daily log of my tasks, goals, and reminders. It’s important to find a system that works for you to hold you accountable.
Lastly, familiarize yourself with the BUJO symbols, and don’t shy away from creating your own.
4. Reflect, Revisit and Revise
Setting goals and knocking them out of the park with your very own manifestation bullet journal requires consistency. You can practice slow living and still manifest the life you want. Use your journal to plan, execute and reflect on your manifestation goals.
Typically, I reflect monthly on different areas of my life, as a way to revisit my goals and sometimes revise them. For example, if your goal is to buy a house but you’ve spent a part of your savings on immediate car maintenance – it’s okay. Remember, you can’t control certain things because life happens. Instead, celebrate where you are and revise your goals for the following month.
Honestly, we all have tough days – on those days, be extra kind to yourself, surrender and ask the universe for guidance.
5. Give Yourself Time
As, with anything new, you need time to acclimate and find a rhythm that’s your very own. If you’re new to using a manifestation bullet journal, give it time, and don’t compare yourself to others. Manifesting looks different for everyone, so don’t ditch it because you can’t see the results, with a flick of the wrist. As with anything, give yourself time.
If there is one thing I want you to leave with, it’s that you are capable of reaching your goals and dreams. Just chip away at your masterpiece slowly and daily (if that’s realistic). Slow and steady not only wins the race but also helps you foster skills, to carry with you, as you move through life.
I’ve manifested some things overnight and other things took years, but what I do know is that using a manifestation journal has helped me stay the course. I believe so deeply in manifesting because I’ve reaped the benefits of it – so, why not you? Go get it, you manifester, you!!

Is it okay to show others my manifestation journal?
It’s a no for me. I don’t mind chatting about my manifestation goals but my journal entries are personal to me. Energy exchange is an underlying factor when manifesting. We don’t always know the energy others will bring toward our goals. Not everything in your life needs to be shared but it is totally up to you. If you feel called to share your journal do so, if you rather keep it to yourself, do so.
