How To Do The 3 6 9 Manifestation Method Effectively

how to do the 3 6 9 manifestation method

Learning how to do the 3 6 9 manifestation method is simple and relies on Tesla’s ‘Divine sequence’ of numbers. By using the 3 6 9 sequence you will write out your affirmation statement 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon and 9 times in the evening.

Nikola Tesla was one of the great mathematical and scientific minds of the 20th century. He had a prolific career and his list of inventions goes on and on.

Despite being a scientist, Tesla had a very spiritual approach to life and mathematics. He strongly believed that numbers help the key to creation.

If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe…if you need to discover the secrets in the universe, you need to view things with a perspective of how much energy they carry, their frequency, and their vibrations.

– Nikola Tesla

Like many mathematicians at the time, they believed that there was some sort of ‘hidden code’ in creation that could reveal the mind of God and creation.

Understanding energy, matter and creation may not be found in a mathematical formula but it does shed some light on how patterns repeat and how energy becomes matter.

While the numbers 3, 6 and 9 show some significant repetitions in patterns of nature it certainly does not translate into many of the more modern interpretations of manifestation through quantum physics.

As a method, this certainly does have an interesting ‘hook’ and whether it is just hype or not, it could be a method worth deploying your own life.

I’ve written a more in-depth article about the theory behind the 3 – 6 – 9 method previously and will discuss the actual method in more detail below.

How To Do The 3 6 9 Manifestation Method For Maximum Results

Learning how to do the 3 6 9 manifestation method is not hard at all. The only real twist with this method as opposed to many others is the 3 – 6 – 9 sequences.

There is of course a lot of debate about this approach and I will talk about this on more detail later.

For now, let’s get into the actual method and how to best practise it.

The 5 Steps To Do The 3 6 9 Manifestation Method is:

Step #1: Create an Intention
Step #2: Create an Affirmation
Step #3: Affirm It In The 3 6 9 Sequence
Step #4: Let It Go
Step #5: Persist

Step #1:
Create a Clear Intention

Like any other manifestation method, you need to know exactly what you want to manifest. Clarity really is power.

You need to know exactly what it is that you want and the more detail you have the better. Detail helps you build the image and it is the visualization more than the thought that invokes the law of attraction.

Having an intention is more than just have a clear idea of what you want. When you have an intention you have a mindset that claims the idea as part of your future reality.

It is more than just having a desire. Desires and dreams tend to remain outside of yourself. Intentions are internalized. You claim it as yours even though it is not in your reality yet.

Step #2:
Turn Your Intention Into a Statement or Affirmation

Now that you have a clear intention and you know exactly what you want to manifest in your life, you need to turn it into an affirmations.

With the 3 6 9 manifestation method you can get a bit more ‘wordy’ than you would with short affirmations.

Your affirmations should describe exactly what you want to manifest in as much detail as you can and it should be worded as a positive statement in the present tense.

I John now drive a beautiful 2022 black Mercedes C9 with white leather seats. I see myself sitting in the driver’s seat, smelling that wonderful new car smell and I can hear all my friends congratulating me on my new car.

Use whatever language makes you ‘see’ yourself already having it. Refine your statement until it is something that really resonates with you and then fix that statement in your mind and on paper.

Step #3:
Affirm It In The 3 6 9 Sequence

This is where the 3 6 9 sequence comes in and it was borrowed from Nikola Tesla and his belief that these numbers are in fact the Divine code of creation.

You will set aside 3 blocks of time throughout your day. Preferably in the morning as soon as you wake up, in the afternoon and then in the evening just before bed time.

  • In the morning, you will write out your affirmation 3 times.
  • In the afternoon you will write out your affirmation 6 times.
  • In the evening you will write out your affirmation 9 times.

I would urge you to start a journal and to always write it in the same journal and develop a routine.

The key to writing out the affirmations is to actually write it by hand.

There is a connection between your brain and your hand and when you see it on paper, you read it out loud as you write it, and you use your imagination to ‘see’ what you are affirming, you are fully engaged in the idea.

Step #4:
Let It Go ‘In Between’

These 3 sessions won’t take up much of your time at all. The secret is not to rush though it or to engage in it as a chore.

It should be something that excites you.

Visualizing what you want to manifest has to make you feel excited – otherwise you need to rewrite your affirmation or up your desire to something that will excite you.

During each session you need to be fully engaged but in between these sessions you need to let go.

You relax and let go and release any tension.

Do not try to do more or to be proactive in any way. When spontaneous manifestation show up, act on it but not with force.

When synchronicities happen, get excited and notice them, but do not try and make it happen.

Step #5:
Persist For 3 Months

This is by far the hardest part and the one that people want to hear the least. You will need to remain persistent for at least 3 months.

Why 3 months?

The latest studies point to the fact that establishing new patterns of thought require an average of 90 days of consistent conditioning.

In reality that is what you are doing here. You are reconditioning your mind to think in a new way.

You are conditioning yourself to think in terms of having what you want instead of not having it.

Everyone can do something for a few days. The real; question is whether you can be disciplined enough to do it EVERY day for 3 months?

If you really want to do the 3 6 9 manifestation method to the full and really put it to the test, commit to doing it for 90 days.

Get your journal and block out the next 3 months.

On day one, turn to day 90 in your journal and write ‘success’. Get excited and see yourself on this day. Feel the joy of the accomplishment and get excited.

Does This Method Really Work Or Is It The Placebo Effect At Work?

Tesla found great mathematical significance in the numbers 3, 6 and 9. The way these numbers repeated in patterns of nature, in scientific formulas and how he used this knowledge to solve many scientific problems he faced is undeniable.

To take the significance of 3,6 and 9 from the realm of the scientific and apply it in such an elementary way to affirmations and manifestation is highly questionable.

To be honest, my first reaction to these TikTok videos about the 3 6 9 manifestation method was one of ‘wtf!’

Not only does it seem like a very weak translation of such a complex scientific number sequence, the method itself has very little substance.

Many people claim to have a lot of success when they do the 3 6 9 manifestation method and I suspect that their success is not based on the actual method of repeating their affirmations in a certain sequence.

It is rather the fact that they are diligently repeating their affirmations but mostly it is the placebo effect at work.

It is not what you believe in that ‘works’ but rather the belief itself that ‘makes it works’.

If ‘everybody’ has success with it, that in itself can create the belief in you.

We see this trend everywhere and there has been a proliferation of this kind of stuff through social media.

As a manifestation method, doing the 3 6 9 approach has a ‘trendy hook’ with Tesla but in reality it is just the repetition of affirmations that really makes it work.

Affirmations work, but they only work if you believe they work and only if you really work hard at it.

The exact same approach can be found in the 55 x 5 manifestation method which uses the same logic.

By writing out your affirmations 55 times a day for 5 days it really drills an idea into your subconscious mind.

In my opinion this method is much more effective and scientifically it is much more sound. We know that it takes an immense amount of repetition to undo years of subconscious programming.

To do the 3 6 9 manifestation method may not be enough.

Yes, the addition of your belief (or even conviction) that the strategy works really does help, for most people it probably won’t.

Manifestation Methods And The Power Of Affirmations

Even though I have my doubts in the legitimacy of this strategy as a ‘method’, there’s ample evidence to point to the fact that this could in fact work.

None of the ideas in this method is really new or groundbreaking.

The practice of using affirmations to manifest is nothing new. In fact, most manifestation methods use this in some shape or form.

The basic premise is that you control and direct your thoughts, your energy and your attention towards something very specific that you want to manifest in your life.

Doing this for long enough will invoke the law of attraction and you will attract to yourself that which you place your energy and your attention on.

Writing exercises work well simply because it helps your mind focus better.

The act of writing removes many mental distractions.

Simply trying to recite affirmations or to direct your mind silently can be a real challenge. There’s just too many distractions in life.

Sitting down, removing outside distractions and really focussing on exactly what you want to manifest is really powerful – whether you do it for one minute or for one hour.

The keys to this overall strategy is firstly to really focus vibrationally on what you DO want.

Secondly, you have to do this for long enough to really create the intensity to shift your thinking and emotions.

Does writing your affirmations 1000 times make it work better than writing it 3, 6 or 9 times?

From my personal experience and everything I’ve learned studying this over the last 22 years is that more tends to be better.

The caveat though is that blind repetition will get you nowhere.

The real question is how long can you change your focus from your current reality to that of your future reality; that which you want to manifest?

What I have found is with people who seem to effortlessly manifest anything they put their mind to is that they become very set on exactly what they want to manifest.

They can remain intensely focussed on that one idea, dream or desire to the point where they simply do not allow thoughts of doubt to take over.
