How to Manifest Anything with the Mirror Technique

Sharing is caring!

Learning different Law of Attraction techniques can be incredibly helpful when trying to manifest your desires.

Some tools and rituals can help us have that breakthrough and finally start attracting our desires.

However, while you might be tempted to try all the different LOA methods or games under the sun, some of the most powerful methods are the simplest and quite literally… right in front of us.

The mirror technique is a Law of Attraction exercise that all of us can do at any point, given that most of us will have at least one mirror in our homes. 

And it’s so simple to do!

What is the mirror technique?

The truth about the Law of Attraction is that we are our most powerful asset.

It is not the vision board or the script or the manifestation box itself that attracts our desires to us, it is the energy that we emit into these physical things.

Given this truth, I want you to think about what you think or say to yourself when you look in the mirror. 

Are the thoughts that you engage in positive or negative?

The very nature of a mirror is that it reflects back to us what we see.

Now imagine this mirror also reflects back to us our energy - what we think, how we feel, what we believe about ourselves.

I like to imagine a mirror as an amplifier of the energy that we are already embodying.

When we stare back at our reflection, we are taking in more of the same energy, whether this be positive or negative.

If you look in the mirror and think negative things about yourself then this will amplify those things. 

We’ve all had those days where we are feeling less than good about our physical appearance, right?

And in these times, many of us have the habit of obsessively looking at ourselves and pointing out our flaws.

The only trouble is, the more we look at our flaws, the more flaws we notice.

Obsessing over your flaws won’t make them go away - in fact, when you’re directing your energy towards them you’re more likely to worsen them.

That’s exactly how the Law of Attraction works!

Now… imagine we were conscious about the things we think or say in front of a mirror and used it as a tool to work with the Law of Attraction.

And that’s exactly what the mirror technique is.

The mirror technique involves looking at yourself in the mirror and embodying the energy you want to attract through your thoughts, words and even your body language.

By embodying this energy, we are able to tap into our subconscious and amplify the high vibrational feelings that are in alignment with who we want to become.

How to use the mirror technique

The mirror technique is super easy and something that all of us can do. 

  1. Go to a quiet, calm place with a mirror - ideally a full length mirror, but as long as you can see your face that’s the most important thing!

  2. Adopt a posture that makes you feel empowered - put your shoulders back and lift your head with confidence

  3. Center yourself with a few deep breaths

  4. Look directly into your own eyes

  5. Tune into the feelings that you want to embody - whether that’s confidence, love, joy or whatever is relevant to you!

  6. Begin to say words aloud that affirm these feelings further - you can also speak the words in your mindspace before you build the confidence to speak them aloud

It is up to you whether you want to frame your words in the form of affirmations or as more of a “pep talk” that you are giving to the person in the mirror. 

This means you can either use the words “I am” or “you are” depending on what feels right to you.

Ideally, this is a practice that you want to engage in every day to gain the most benefits, as consistency really is key with any Law of Attraction technique. 

The perfect opportunity to use the mirror technique everyday is to include it at a time when you will already be using a mirror - this means you really don’t have to change your routine at all!

For example, you can use the mirror technique when you’re brushing your teeth or doing your skincare routine or putting on makeup. 

These routines also tend to be first thing in the morning or last thing at night which also makes them amazing opportunities to target the subconscious!

You might also wish to use the mirror technique before a big event or opportunity that you want to build confidence for.

Using this technique can help to give you a boost that makes you feel empowered and gets you to the right vibration!
