Practicing manifestation helps me keep a positive mindset and stay on track with achieving my goals and dreams. Journaling is an easy way to keep up this practice.
In this post, I’ll share the best manifestation journals your goals and dreams.

The Book of Dreams Come True
The Book of Dreams Come True: A Journal of Self-Discovery, Goals, and Manifestation consists of creative journaling prompts designed to help you manifest your goals and dreams.
If you’re looking for space to write down your thoughts from day to day, this is not the one for you.
That said, it is great for getting the gears going and staying on top of your manifestation practice for pretty much everyone.
The Universe Has Your Back
If you read my post about the best manifestation books, then this journal probably sounds familiar.
That’s because it’s the companion to one of the books I recommended, The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein!
This gorgeous journal for manifesting has a beautiful, earthy watercolor aesthetic throughout the pages. It is also dotted with inky drawings and mantras that come from Bernstein’s book.
The Universe Has Your Back is perfect for artsy folks that vibe off of other creatives’ work.
Gratitude: A Day and Night Reflection
An important part of manifestation is practicing gratitude.
It is a great way to stay in a positive mindset and avoid letting your limiting beliefs block you from achieving your goals and dreams.
Gratitude: A Day and Night Reflection Journal helps guide you through gratitude journaling twice a day for a total of 90 days.
In the morning, you get a page to focus on your affirmations and gratitude for the day.
In the evening, you get a page for reflection on how your day went, how you felt, and a positive thought to keep in mind before bed.
The daily templates are a great way to train your brain in gratitude and reflection on a daily basis!
The Morning Magic 5-Minute Journal
In The Morning Magic 5-Minute Journal: Inspiring Prompts to Set Intentions and Live with Gratitude All Day gives us busy folks a guided space for manifestation journaling.
All you need are 5 minutes to jot down your thoughts for each day’s prompts to set your intention, practice gratitude, release a negative or pressing through, and blank space for extra thoughts.
In addition to the daily journaling, there are a handful of prompts for longer, more in-depth journaling.
The Super Attractor Journal
The Super Attractor Journal is another offering from Gabrielle Bernstein, this time a companion to her book of the same name.
Like the previous journal, it also has a watercolor aesthetic. However, this time the colors are more girly.
Another difference with this journal is that there are writing prompts scattered throughout, in addition to quotes and mantras from the Super Attractor book.
The Best Journal Ever
This journal very much lives up to its name: The Best Journal Ever.
Each day includes a page with an inspirational quote and sections for sleep tracking, gratitude, affirmations, and a blank space for thoughts.
There’s also space for monthly reflection and good habit tracking.
This one is perfect for those that want to combine journaling for manifestation, a place to jot down daily memories, and track habits.
If you find using a templated or guided journal to be too constraining, a blank notebook is more than enough to get started with journaling for manifestation.
Pick one with a cover or aesthetic that speaks to you, your goals, and dreams.
Maybe it’s leather-bound with a compass if you’re dreaming of traveling.
Maybe it’s linen-bound with a romantic ribbon bookmark for those manifesting love.
You get the idea.
Shop around ‘til you find something that speaks to you! Here are a few ideas to spark your imagination.
Use affirmation or manifestation cards for guidance
If you have a blank journal already, use your budget toward a deck of affirmation or manifestation cards.
Each day pick a deck that speaks to you and draw a card.
Alternatively, you can shuffle and go with whatever card jumps out of the deck.
Once you pick a card, reflect upon the affirmation, quote, or question on the card in your journal.
This is a great way to use up all those pretty notebooks you have laying around. Or is it just me that does that?
Plus, if you need a pep talk throughout the day, you can pull a card for inspiration and guidance.
Check the carousel below for a few of my favorite affirmation and manifestation decks.
How do I know which journals for manifesting are right for me?
If you’re just starting out with manifestation, I recommend reading my post about the best manifestation books.
Most of these books include guidance on journaling and can help you decide which one is best for you.
