Not long ago, I came across the 3-6-9 method for manifesting. This may be old news to some of you since I understand this manifestation technique has been doing its rounds in the LOA community for a while now. Though I’m not a massive LOA fan, I found myself pulled into checking this method out because of Tesla’s obsession with the numbers 3, 6, and 9. Those are also my personal numbers. (3 Life Path, 6 Soul Urge, 9 Personality) So today, I want to share three 369 Manifestation Tarot Tips. Because, let’s face it, everything is better with Tarot! But first, let’s look at what the 369 Manifestation Method is and how to use it.
How to Use the 369 Manifestation Method
It turns out there are many ways to use the 369 method. I watched a few videos and started feeling confused because none of the presenters seemed to agree on the specifics. Then I came across this video that references this video by manifestation queen Mary Kate. In her video, Mary Kate talks about how the important thing isn’t the actual technique but the feeling and intention behind it. In other words, as long as you use the numbers 3, 6 and 9, pretty much anything goes. This makes a lot of sense since we are talking about an intuitive rather than a science-based method.
However, it’s good to bear in mind that some basic rules for manifesting also apply to the 369 method. First of all, your affirmation should be stated in the present tense and only contain positive statements that firmly place your focus on what you wish to attract (not on what you wish to avoid). Mary Kate recommends focussing on just one manifestation at a time and that makes sense–You don’t want to dilute the energy or confuse yourself by juggling too much, especially if you’re a noob.
For those of you who want a clear and detailed written outline for how to manifest with the 369 method, I recommend this article.
Simple 369 Manifestation Method
In essence, the most simple method and the one that most people seem to recommend is to:
- In the morning, write your manifestation down three times
- In the afternoon, write your manifestation down six times
- Before going to bed, write your manifestation down nine times
But remember, it’s the feeling and vibration behind the writing that counts the most. So choose wording that helps you tap into the right feeling state. Mary Kate also mentions the Abraham-Hicks 17-second rule and how that amplifies the vibration of what you wish to attract. In other words, even if you have a short sentence (or you’re a super-fast writer), hold the affirmation in your mind for at least 17 seconds. The same goes for if you choose to say your affirmation out loud instead of writing it in your journal. You can do both, of course!
Some people recommend repeating the same affirmation for either 30 or 33 days. However, you do not have to limit yourself to a set amount of time. Once you have set the manifestation in motion, you can safely move away from it and manifest something else. That is because you have issued a FIAT or magical decree and this or something better will come into your life. Never doubt yourself <— This is the first law of manifesting.
369 Manifestation Tarot Tip no. 1 – Clearing
The first tip is to do a simple, intuitive 3-card pull for what you wish to manifest. This pull will show you if you have a green light for manifesting or if some subconscious beliefs need to be cleared first. One great quick way to clear any negative belief that might thwart your manifestation is by using EFT tapping.
Alternatively, if it becomes clear that it is as simple as forgiving yourself or another person for something that happened recently, simply do that first.
369 Manifestation Tarot Tip no. 2 – The Tarot Letter
So this is probably my favourite 369 manifestation Tarot tip because it uses the strength of the Tarot, i.e. symbolic imagery, for manifesting. AND it is instant! (Hands up if you can be impatient like me.) Words are powerful but you know what they say, ‘A picture says more than a thousand words.’ If you want to send a strong message to the Universe, send a Tarot letter!
Please note that this is just one way to use the Tarot for manifesting your desire. Please feel free to run with it and know that your imagination is the limit.
Choose the card that best represents what you wish to manifest. On three separate slips of paper, draw three representations of your chosen card, choosing three of the key symbols contained in the card imagery. Draw them with as much positive emotion as you can muster and without worrying about the quality of your artwork. (Judging yourself is not allowed!) Then write your manifestation on the back of each slip of paper. Place the three ‘cards’ in an envelope and write 369 on the outside of the envelope. Burn the envelope in a way that is safe, using a fire-proof container. It is done! This is a powerful technique to use if you need an instant manifestation.
369 Manifestation Tarot Tip no. 3 – Action Steps
Once you have decided what you wish to manifest, you will also need to take action. Again, the Tarot can help us discern the best way forward. You may have had a green light from the Universe about going ahead with your manifestation but there will still be things you will need to avoid to not trip yourself up.
There are many Tarot spreads you can use for help with insights. The traditional Celtic Cross might be your cup of tea, for instance. If you like to read more free-form, I suggest pulling three cards on what to work on and three cards on what to steer clear of so that you don’t get distracted. You can also do an intuitive 9-square reading for the best way forward and what to avoid.
Write your thoughts down, including three action steps and then get to work! If another subconscious block is mirrored back at you at this stage, simply tap on that to clear it.
‘What?! I have to work for what I’m manifesting?’ Yes. Attraction doesn’t preclude taking action. Remember, you chose to incarnate into 3D reality partly precisely because you wished to have the experience of working to manifest things. Work can be its own reward and it doesn’t have to be painful, not when you have faith in yourself and use the Tarot (and EFT) to assist with the process.
