How to Make a Gratitude Jar for Manifestation

Today I love to share a little manifestation exercise I started doing a few years ago; a gratitude jar. Practicing gratitude is a powerful manifestation method, and a gratitude jar is a great way to do make this part of your daily routine.

I have different ways of how I practice gratitude every day, e.g., with my gratitude list  – but one way became my absolute favorite in the last years: a gratitude jar. So let’s get started with what a gratitude jar is and how to start your own one.

What is a Gratitude Jar

I don’t care much about celebrating NYE. I have to admit, most of the time, I’m in bed by 10 or even earlier. Maybe it’s because, as I get older, I appreciate waking up well-rested and fresh.

Or maybe it’s because I consciously set goals throughout the year instead of making New Year’s resolutions only once a year.

And besides, I think there’s something to celebrate every day, not just at the end of the year. Especially when you understand how to manifest the life you love.

But then I started a little habit a few years ago, and it’s become a little New Year’s tradition in our house.  A Gratitude Jar.

A gratitude jar is a little manifestation exercise where you add notes of gratitude to a container of your choice.

Every day throughout the year, my husband Tom and I write down one thing that went especially well that day, one thing for which we are grateful. And at the end of the year, we open these notes and read them out loud together.

Our gratitude jar definitely became something very special because you can review again how the year really was.

And no matter how things go sometimes and how difficult a situation can be, if you focus on the “small” things that actually do go well, it helps you to deal with the more difficult things in life…

This annual reminder is very helpful in seeing the big picture. A POSITIVE big picture.

No matter if you start this new habit at the beginning of a new year or sometime during the year (how about a monthly gratitude jar that you read through at the end of each month?) – this little habit can help you have a great year.

Because the more you focus on the good things in your life, the more of them you attract.

How to Use a Gratitude Jar in Your Daily Manifestation Routine

If you want to add more gratitude to your daily manifestation routine, starting a gratitude jar is a great idea.

All you need is a notepad or post-it notes, a pen, and some kind of container where you can keep the notes—for example, a Mason Jar. 

Every day you write down something you are thankful for that day, crumple the note (or roll it and fix it with a ribbon or some string) and throw it into the jar.

By the way, it doesn’t matter how big or small the thing is that you are thankful for.

So don’t worry if you think you can’t find enough things to be thankful for throughout the year. It doesn’t always have to be the new house, the pay raise, or other great news…

Practicing gratitude is about signaling to your subconscious mind that your life is great and you want more of it.

The cool thing is that your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between being happy about something small and being happy about something huge. It’s all about the emotion.

And it’s in your hands to make that emotion big regardless of the reason.

Extra Tips for Your Gratitude Jar

With this new habit of daily gratitude, you can get really creative.

In case you plan this new gratitude practice together with your partner or the whole family, use different colored notes. Everyone who participates gets their own color.

If you start a gratitude jar all by yourself, you can use different colors for different days or areas of your life, e.g., pink notes for your business and blue ones for your private life.

Manifest More With the Power of Gratitude

Gratitude is an amazing way to signal your subconscious mind where you want to go and also that you are ready for more abundance.

But don’t forget that manifestation is more than just using a few tools. If you want to learn the most practical way of leveraging the power of the law of attraction, I suggest you join my email list, by signing up for your free journaling starter kit.
