Increase your voice, awaken your inner self, and connect higher with the Universe with these powerful manifestation words.


If there are powerful words to help you manifest your goals, there are also words that can prevent you from attracting them into your life.  Let’s take a look at what these words are:

  • No/Not/Don’t
  • Should/Must
  • Want/Need


When manifesting your desires, you have to avoid using this set of words.  This is because you should never use negative words in your affirmations or when you ask something from the Universe.

Avoid saying, “I don’t want to live from paycheck to paycheck.”  You are giving out an energy that you do live from paycheck to paycheck.  So what will you attract?  You guessed it right, “living from paycheck to paycheck.”

Don’t tell the Universe what you don’t want.  Instead, tell it what you want.  You can say, “I attract an abundance of money that allows me to live life comfortably.”  With these words, you are telling the Universe that you want money.


Avoid saying should and must because you are putting pressure on yourself. When you don’t manifest the things you want in the timeframe you’ve given, you will feel angry and disappointed.  

Shakespeare said it best with a popular quote:  “Expectation is the root of all heartache.”

Instead of saying, “I should be a manager within one year,” say, “I am the manager of this restaurant within one year.”

The latter statement is more confident and trusting of the Universe, instead of demanding something.

Avoid saying “want,” or “need,” because it implies that you don’t have what you want.  When it comes to manifesting your dreams, you need to believe that what you desire is already coming.  You need to believe that it is yours.  

When you say you need or want, it is telling the Universe that you don't have something. And what will the Universe bring to you?  You guessed it right, you’ll keep on attracting inadequacy.

Instead of saying, “I want to be an engineer,” say, “I am an engineer by age 21.”

Words are powerful and now that you know what to avoid, it’s time we move on to the words that hold immense power in helping you attract the life of your dreams.


When it comes to using words to mount on your vision board, you need to use words that hold manifestation power.  The words you choose matter because each word holds a certain vibration.

Here are 11 of the most powerful vision board words for manifesting your dreams:


Abundance comes from the Latin word, “abundo,” which means “to overflow.”  Based on its etymology, the word attracts joy, fullness, richness, and wealth.  It is the opposite of scarcity, and it helps you manifest money and material possessions that are more than enough. It can also mean richness of love and happiness.

  1. FAITH

Faith means complete trust.  It is a strong belief in something or someone, or giving complete confidence in what you desire.  Even in the absence of evidence, you show complete belief that you will attract what you want.

  1. HAVE

Have means “to hold, to possess something,” and to send an intention of entitlement.  For example, if you want to say, “I want money,” you can say, “I have money.”  Even if you don’t possess it now, emitting energy that you do will help you attract it.

Gratitude is one of the most powerful states when it comes to manifesting.  Being grateful means you are appreciative of the blessings you have in your life right now.  Even if you don’t have everything you want, being thankful for the things that you do have helps you attract more.

Studies on gratitude have also revealed that people who are thankful are happier, more compassionate, and have a better sense of self-worth.


Belief comes from the Old English word, “geleafa,” which means, “to hold esteem, trust.”  It is similar to faith but it has more conviction and certainty.  While faith has more spiritual undertones, belief is more associated with wisdom or knowledge.


Positive evokes a feeling of optimism, acceptance, approval, and possession.  It is the opposite of negative and promotes affirmation.  

  1. LOVE

Love is one of the most powerful words.  It is taken from the Sanskrit word, “lubhyati,” which means “desire.”  But more than lust or superficial undertones, love is defined as something more intimate.  It evokes affection, enjoyment, and fondness.

Instead of saying, “I need to exercise,” you can say, “I love to exercise.”  Using the word, “love,” can instantly change your mindset about achieving your goals, because it projects something that you enjoy doing instead of something that you are obligated to do.

  1. TRUST

Another word that evokes confidence, trust is a word that comes from Old Norse’s “treysta,” which means, “to rely on.”

Trust is freedom of any doubt, of feeling secure and safe and assured reliance.  It is trusting that whatever you want from the Universe will be given to you no matter what.


The word, “Choose,” means to pick out or select something.  When it comes to manifesting your desires, you need to emit the energy of creation.  When you actively choose something to manifest, it is giving out an energy that you are the creator of your life, and you have the power to manifest your desires.


Manifest is another word for creating something out of nothing.  Using this word emits the energy of creation because the word means to make something obvious, or to make something intangible into its physical form.

  1. I AM

This is a phrase but we believe it must be included in this list because it is one of the most powerful phrases when manifesting dreams. 

When you begin an affirmation with “I am,” you are implying that you are already that which you desire.  It is stating a phrase in the present tense and that you are declaring what you embody.

Use these powerful words to create affirmations, quotes, and motivational words on your vision board.


We’ve created 11 affirmations and statements using these 11 powerful manifestation words.  These are just samples to give you an idea about how you can make one on your own:

  • I believe I am abundant in everything I desire in the world.
  • I trust in the power of the Universe and I am worthy of manifesting my dreams.
  • I am positively manifesting my dream life.
  • My faith in turning my dreams into reality is embedded within me.
  • I choose a life of positivity and gratefulness.
  • I love making my dreams come to life.

  • I have everything I wish for and so much more.
  • I am eternally grateful for the success, love, and money that flows through me.
  • My faith in my ability to manifest is as strong as my trust in the Universe.
  • Abundance comes into my life each and every day.

It’s time for you to make your powerful affirmation and motivational statements using these words.  Remember to avoid words that have negative connotations so you don’t block your ability to manifest.

Have these words and phrases printed or write them down with a marker.  Mount them on a board and let them remind you each day of your immense power to manifest your dreams.

You can also save these on your device and use them in creating a digital vision board.  But if you choose to make a vision board, you need to have a few craft materials to make one.
