In my Manifesting Q&A’s I get asked many questions about manifesting and Law of Attraction tools, or how you can manifest faster. And one question I often hear; what is the 55×5 manifesting method and how can I use this technique to manifest my dreams?

55×5 manifestation method, sometimes also called an ancient manifesting ritual, is a mix of affirmations and journaling. You write down your goals, as an affirmative statement, 55 times and five days in a row. 

And this law of attraction tool really gets a lot of attention right now, so let’s have a look at how the 55×5 manifesting method works.

And let’s also find out if this Law of Attraction technique really works? 

How Does The 55×5 Manifesting Affirmations Formula Work

Let me give you some 55×5 method examples.

As already mentioned above, the 55×5 manifestation formula is basically this; you decide what you want and write down your goal or dream 55 times.

And you do this for 5 days in a row and then watch the magic (or manifestation) happen.

The Law of Attraction 55×5 Technique in 3 Simple Steps

Step 1: Define Your Goal

Think about exactly what you want; you need to become super clear about your goals before you start any manifesting techniques. 

Ask yourself what you want, but also why you want it.

Become pretty specific with your goal, remember, you have to write your wish for 55 times, for five days in a row, if you can express your desire in a short but specific sentence, that’s the best way to do it.

Step 2: Formulate Your Affirmation

Exactly, the 55×5 manifesting method is basically a mix of two Law of Attraction tools; affirmations and journaling, and you will start by formulating a powerful affirmation statement for your goal.

Make sure that you formulate your desired wish as follows:

  • In the present tense.
  • Short and specific.
  • Positive.

To make the whole thing even more powerful, express some gratitude, gratitude is an essential part of the Law of Attraction and can skyrocket your manifesting success.

Step 3: Write your Affirmation 55 Times For 5 Days

Now the point is that you take your time each day to write down your affirmation, your wish, 55 times.

You can just use a piece of paper for this, or you make this your daily journaling exercise. It doesn’t really matter.

But why 55 times?

Well, to be honest, I don’t know; it could also be 77×7,  it doesn’t really matter.

And that’s also where I see a problem with this manifestation methodso many people don’t understand something fundamental when it comes to manifesting and using any of the Law of Attraction tools.

Many people do believe that any of these manifesting techniques, methods, or tools ARE the actual manifestation. And that’s not true.

Or maybe they believe that the Law of Attraction is magic and if you write down your dream 55 times (with the magic number), the desired goal will just appear. 

But sorry to tell you this, this is BS, manifesting doesn’t work that way!

How Do You Use the 55×5 Method for Manifesting

So the 55×5 manifesting ritual works on the same proven principle, as any law of attraction tool, by helping you to send the right signals to your subconscious mind. 

Your subconscious will then do everything to bring you into this new “reality”; this is the basic principle of the Law of Attraction. 

I have my own opinion about the effectiveness of the 55×5 manifestation method, but before I give you my own take on this law of attraction technique, let’s find out if there is some evidence that this manifesting method actually DOES work.

55×5 Method Success Stories

As I mentioned above, 55×5 is based on the same principles as any other manifesting tool. It’s all about sending the right signals to our subconscious mind. 

If writing an affirmation on a piece of paper 55 times helps you with this, that’s great. But please don’t confuse all these manifestation rituals with the actual manifesting process because there is much more to it.

Of course, there are a lot of success stories out there from women who say 55×5 has helped them to manifest money, or the love of their life, or maybe the dream job. But there is often a bigger story, behind these 55×5 success stories. 

Affirmations, journaling, vision board, or manifesting techniques such as 55×5 are very powerful tools. In the end, they are just tools. 

And I’m not saying that I have manifested my dream husband ONLY BECAUSE I glued him on my vision board. Of course, this supported the entire process, but it needed the activation of many different universal laws.  

Mainly the activation of the law of action. And that’s where I see the problem with the 55×5 manifestation method.

Why The 55×5 Method Might NOT Work For You

For example, I  know that many people love to use 55×5 to manifesting money.

But honestly, do you think that writing down 55 times the affirmation “I’m rich” will just make you wake up in the morning of the 6. day, realizing that you suddenly became a millionaire?

Of course, affirmations are powerful in reprogramming your subconscious mind, but in the end, it takes many more steps to make manifestations work.

And in this article here, I explain in more detail how the 55×5 method works, and why I think it’s maybe a waste of your time. And what you should do instead.

How Manifestation Really Works

You need to understand one thing, the 55×5 manifestation formula can help you to manifest, but it is just a tool, a tool that allows you to re-program your subconscious mind, and to change your mindset and your beliefs.

That is, for sure an important part of the whole manifesting process, but it’s not the actual manifestation.

And 55×5 is not a magic number; it doesn’t help to write your wish 55 times in your manifesting journal and then do nothing.

Nothing will happen without action!

And honestly, it’s better to write down your goal only once a day, or 5 times a day, but very consciously, and visualize yourself, the way that you already achieved that goal, and to notice how your mindset changes on a conscious level.

Even then, you have to take the next step; you have to take action towards your goal.

Because the belief alone, will not bring you there. 

A Manifesting Method That Brings Real Results

I’m all about having a good ROI (return on investment.) – That’s true for my business and even more when manifesting.

Your investment is your time and energy.

But when I hear the women in my manifesting community talking about the 55×5 technique, I usually recommend investing the time better in a technique I call Power Manifestation 5×5.

In fact, I invented this technique to give the ladies in my manifesting community a great alternative to using the 55×5 method. Because it focuses on activating the law of action.

For this manifesting method, I got inspired by the rule of five. This is a technique I learned in my training with success coach Jack Canfield, and I find it one of the most powerful tools you can use to achieve your goals faster.

It is a commitment to take five actions every day that will bring you closer to your goal or dream.

If you have read my manifesting book, then you know for sure that I am convinced that the law of action is actually more important in the manifestation process than the law of attraction.

Therefore it is clear why I consider the rule of five so powerful, and with my own take on it, I created a very powerful manifestation method that brings real results!

Sure, the 55×5 method works excellent at a subconscious level and helps you to change your mindset, but only through action, you will reach your goal.

And think about what signals you send to your subconscious mind when you take five steps every day towards your goal?

So if you have 30 minutes to invest in the 55×5 manifesting method for five days, why not spend those 30 minutes for five days to do something actually to reach your dream?

And not every one of these steps has to be super big, the American author, Robert Collier, once said; success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

And these 5×5 actions are already 25. Twenty-five steps closer to your goal.

And who knows, maybe you will see how powerful it can be, to take action every day, and you will continue with it. Or your dream has already come true after five days. In that case, set the next one and a bigger one because we should never stop dreaming big.

How Do Manifestation Tools Help You Manifest Your Dreams

You see, the 55×5 manifesting formula can work if you use this method correctly and take enough time for it.

But there are maybe better ways to use your time when you want to manifest your big dreams.

Sometimes it helps to think out of the box and not just follow every trend, because everyone else is doing it in the Law of Attraction community.

And in the end, whatever tool or technique you choose for your law of attraction routine, make sure it follows these 3 rules:

  1. It triggers the right emotion in you. Manifesting is ALL about being on the right frequency and aligned with your goals and dreams. So only through your emotions can you really access this state.


  2. It really does what you need. You might want to choose a different tool for becoming clear on what it is what you want, tackling an abundance block, or when you want to signal your subconscious mind where it should get you.


  3. Choosing a tool that gives you the best results for your goal, is also important. Choose the one that you can actually keep up with.


It’s ok to believe that writing 55×5 your affirmation on paper will help you reaching your goal and manifesting your dreams faster.

But if you end up not doing anything, because you just don’t have the time or you actually don’t like writing a journal, then this manifesting method maybe just not the right one for you.

So you see, I don’t say that the 55×5 manifesting method is not working, but before you choose this law of attraction ritual and invest your time, you might want to consider that there is a better option for you out there.

Oh, and btw. If you want more hands-on and no BS tips on how to manifest with the Law of Attraction, I recommend reading my book: Become the CEO of Your Dream Life.

It’s full of helpful tips, practical exercises, and it will not teach you the same “secret copy-cat” stuff you usually find out there.

In this book, I share my advanced manifesting (and goal-setting) method, and many more techniques, such as the power manifestation 5×5. But the most important take from the book is how you leverage the other universal laws and not just the law of attraction.

So you see, there is so much more to do when manifesting, than just writing some affirmations on paper, as with the 55×5 manifestation method.
