What is the 5x55 manifestation method?
The 5x55 manifestation method is a structured system to bring your desires into reality. Over the course of 5 days, the aim is to align with the frequency of your intentions by targeting the unconscious mind.
This method works on the basis of the law of attraction, but adds a more structured approach in order to really commit to manifesting. This makes it a particularly useful tool for those who find themselves more scattered and inconsistent in their approach to manifestation or simply aren’t getting results from their usual techniques.
The law of attraction
The law of attraction describes our ability to attract into our lives whatever we focus on. If this concept is new to you, we can explain it using the law of vibration.
The law of vibration describes the fact that everything in the universe has a vibrational frequency. This law works like a magnet, meaning that whatever frequency something vibrates at has the power to attract things operating at a similar frequency.
Since our thoughts also have a vibration, they can also attract things that hold the same or a similar vibration. Positive thoughts = positive experiences and negative thoughts = negative experiences.
But it can be even more specific than that. When we want to attract something particular into our lives we can use the knowledge of the law of attraction and the power of our minds to attract that thing - purely by making it our focus. Cool, huh?

How does the 5x55 manifesting formula work?
A combination of factors make the 5x55 manifesting formula such a powerful tool:
So what is the significance of 5x55? To answer this, we can look at the meaning of the numbers according to numerology.
In numerology, the number 5 is related to change. In particular, 555 is a number that represents extreme growth and transition. It can be a sign of letting go of the past and creating future opportunities.
According to psychic mediums seeing the number 555 frequently is a sign that there are changes that will happen soon, which will bring you closer to your true life’s purpose.
When we focus on these numbers we are increasing the power of intentions!
What you need
How to use the 5x55 manifestation method
Step 1: Set your intention
The first step of any manifestation method is to set your intention. The idea here is to think about what you want to put into existence within the next 5 days.
Some questions that might help you with setting your intention are:
- 1What would you like your life
to look like in 5 days?
- 2What would need to change in your life to achieve this?
- 3How would you feel if this change manifested in 5 days time?
An example of this process might be:
- 1In 5 days time I would like to have deeper connections with my friends
- 2To achieve this I need to be more open to giving and receiving love
- 3If this change manifested in 5 days I would feel loved and secure and feel a sense of belonging
Intention: to love and be loved
Turn your intention into affirmations
Once you have set an intention to work on, you want to create 5 affirmations that match with this intention. Make sure these affirmations are powerful and include emotive language that resonates with you.
The key formula for setting powerful affirmations is:
Looking at our previous answers and intention, some powerful affirmations might be:
- 1My heart is open to giving and receiving love, and I am grateful to belong
- 2I am thankful to have deep connections with people I love
- 3I feel safe and secure in my relationships and I love openly
- 4Thank you universe for blessing me with an open heart and strong connections
- 5I am grateful for the love I have in my life and I feel accepted as a result
Step 2: Choose your affirmation
Now you’ve created your five affirmations based on your intention, it’s time to narrow it down to just one affirmation to work with. Looking at the key formula for setting powerful affirmations above, which affirmation fits this criteria best?
Referring back to the example affirmations above, my chosen affirmation would be "thank you universe for blessing me with an open heart and strong connections". This is the affirmation that I find the most powerful.
Make any changes you need to make to ensure this is the right affirmation for you to work with over the next five days.
TIP: try reading the affirmations out loud to see which one brings you the most joy - this is the one you should work with!
Step 3: Set up your space
To begin with your manifestation, it’s important to set up a high vibrational space. This will help you to connect deeper with your affirmation and align with what you are trying to manifest.
Set up your space like you would for your meditation practice. There is no right or wrong way to do this - the only thing that matters is that you connect with the space.
Take some time to ensure you feel at peace in the space you’re in and that you won’t be disturbed for the duration of your practice.

Step 3: Write down your affirmation
This is where the 5x55 method really begins.
With your pen and journal at hand, start to write out your affirmation on the page over and over until you have written your affirmation 55 times. Do this every day for 5 consecutive days.
Although this is a simple task, it is one that should not be rushed. The aim isn’t just to write words here, but to really connect with the meaning and the feeling behind the words. As you write, say the words in your mind space and visualise your affirmation as if it is your reality. Feel the energy of your words and believe them to be true.
If you feel like you are struggling to connect with this practice, take some time out and come back to it. Try meditating beforehand to get in a more positive and high vibrational mindset. However, it is important that you do not miss a day. If this happens, you should start the process again.
Step 4: Let go and release
This is a very important part of the manifestation process that is often overlooked.
After the 5 days have passed, let go of your intention and release any expectations.
It can be incredibly tempting to obsess over our desires and think about them again and again, believing that this will help to bring them into our reality faster. But attaching too much meaning or expectation to our wishes can send out negative messages into the universe and make them less likely to show up.
Instead, we need to let go of our ego and trust the process.
Why not try putting your affirmations in a manifestation box?
It is also important to pay extra attention to your intuition and the messages you receive over the coming weeks. You may gain insight on steps you need to take in order to align with your intentions. Don’t ignore any messages you are receiving - they are coming to you for a reason.
Frequently asked questions about the 5x55 method
What is the best time to do the 5x55 manifesting method?
There isn’t necessarily a “right” time to start the 5x55 manifesting method. The most important thing is that it feels right to you.
Meditating before each affirmation writing session can ensure that you’re in the right headspace to engage fully.
Some people believe that writing affirmations before going to bed at the end of the day allows the words to move into your subconscious as you sleep. However, if you find you are more focused and positive first thing in the morning then this might be a more suitable option for you!
Do you need to write the affirmation 55 times at once?
The repetition of writing is one of the most important factors of this meditation technique. Writing at different times of the day breaks up this pattern of repetition and is therefore less powerful.
If you find yourself unable to complete your writing or are not in the right mindset, it is okay to stop and come back to it later but it is recommended that you begin the 55 affirmations from the beginning.
Can you type your affirmation out on the computer?
In an ideal world, you should write your affirmation using a pen and paper. This is because the act of writing by hand causes you to connect more with the words you are writing and encourages you to be more present.
It is easy to become distracted and passive when typing on a computer and it is therefore not recommended to do so. If you have the option of using a pen and paper then this should be the method you take.
Be cautious of the temptation to use technology out of laziness as this means you are not truly committed to your intention and it is unlikely to manifest.
However, if for whatever reason you are unable to use a pen and paper then typing is better than nothing. If you need to resort to typing then try to do so slowly and remain engaged and present in the same way you would writing by hand.
Can I use this method to manifest multiple things at once?
This isn’t advised as doing so sends out many different messages and gives the impression that you are confused about what you want.
Working on one intention and affirmation shows the universe that you are dedicated and committed to achieving this outcome.
There is no rush - work on one thing before moving to the next. You will find that your goals are much easier to achieve when you break them down into smaller steps.
What if my desire manifests before day 5?
This is great! But don’t stop just yet.
Show your dedication by completing the 5x55 method even if your desire seems to manifest early. There is every chance that there is more to come and stopping prematurely could stop you from getting all of the benefits of this technique!
What if my desire hasn’t manifested by day 5?
Don’t lose faith. Some intentions, especially big ones, take a while to manifest.
If your desire hasn’t manifested by day 5, that doesn’t mean it won’t manifest at all! It’s important not to lose faith in the universe and the law of attraction.
Trust the process and the universe will deliver in time.
