Keeping a pray rain journal is one of my favorite manifestation techniques, mainly because it works. I’ve manifested several wonderful things in my life with this method, including the condo I currently live in, various jobs I’ve held, even my successful website! People using this technique have literally seen results within hours, and you’ll be hooked once you try it because it’s so effective (not to mention fun!).
Pray rain journaling is a technique whereby you write in a journal on a daily basis as if whatever you want to create in your life has already come to pass. You do not write from the standpoint of wanting something to happen, you write as if it has already come to pass and is already present or a part of your life. This speeds up the manifestation process because the law of attraction ensures that whatever we regularly focus on is what will show up in our lives.
To start, take a blank journal (or sheet of paper) and write a page in your journal every day as if your dream has already come true. Whatever you would like to create (soulmate relationship, weight loss, career success, financial freedom, etc.), write in your journal as if that thing has already come true for you.
For example, if your desire is to get married, write a page a day as if you are already married to your amazing spouse and living the life of your dreams. Be sure to describe your spouse and relationship in detail. Do you have children together? What kind of home do you live in? If your ambition is to own your own company someday, write a page a day as if you are already the owner of your successful company and describe it in detail. What are your annual profits? Do you have an actual office space you operate from, or do you work from home? You get the idea. Be sure to include as many details as possible!
Here comes the magic: by the time you’re finished with your journal, your dream will either have already manifested or will be well on its way to doing so!
The term ‘pray rain’ comes from a story about a community that was in a serious drought and in desperate need of rain. A visitor to the community learned of this situation and offered to perform a rain dance in order to summon the much-needed rain. However, when he went out and did his rain dance, everyone was puzzled because it looked like he was just standing there not moving, rather than dancing around and chanting for rain as they had expected. When they asked him what he was doing, he answered, “I was praying rain”… as opposed to praying for rain. Can you see the difference?
Instead of dancing around and doing a traditional rain dance, the man stood there and felt what it would feel like if this community was already receiving all the rain it needed. He used his imagination and focused on what it would feel like if raindrops were falling on his forehead and arms, he felt his clothes drenched with water, he imagined what it would be like if all the crops were well-nourished and abundant, and he visualized the community as a whole having plenty of water to drink. Instead of praying for rain and coming from a place of lack, he prayed rain as if the rain the community needed was already a reality!
This is exactly what we should all do in order to make things happen in our lives: feel the feelings now of already having that which you desire to create in your life. The powerful law of attraction ensures that if we feel now how we would feel once the particular thing or situation arrives in our life, then that thing or situation has no choice but to show up! Remember, like attracts like, period.
