Reason #3- Keep a journal for manifesting and law of attraction

You can use your journal to organize your thoughts, plan your future, and manifest your dreams.

Words have a certain magic, and words written with intention hold much power. Some have even said the word “spelling” points to the idea that our written words cast spells, so to speak. They carry energy.

That’s why writing affirmations and life goals can help you to actualize what you desire. You can hold close to your heart your intention when you write and feeling the energy of your own words to help to manifest them into reality.
