I recently had an open Q&A session and I’ve received some GREAT questions about the Law of Attraction and manifestation. Over the next few weeks I’m going to answer your questions (and keep the souls who asked these questions anonymous) so that I can help everyone as much as possible at the same time.
Question:I frequently see the numbers 111 or 1111. Especially lately. I’ve read enough to know that those numbers mean I’m in alignment or on the right path, but with what? In alignment with the thought I am thinking at the time I see them? Or just on the right path with my life in general?
Answer: I love this question because perception is reality. The Universe doesn’t have an emotional tie to energy. In other words, energy is influenced upon itself because it’s just energy. It’s carbon, it’s hydrogen, it’s helium, etc. What makes the Law of Attraction so magical is because of energy vibration that happens 24/7 throughout the Universe.
So, how does this apply to you? Your brain is made up of the same elemental particles in the Universe, which means your brain (your thought) produces vibrational energy, the same energy that IS the Universe. Our society labels energy with certain terms because we collectively agree upon the labeled energy (thing).
A “chair” is labeled as such because we collectively agree to call it a “chair” in English, and use different languages around the world to identify the item (thing) through different sounds and shapes of writing.
Using the laws of the Universe, the “chair” is whatever we want it to be because it’s merely elemental particles of energy. The same energy that makes up this “chair” comes from the same source that makes up your “brain” and your “eyeballs”. But, you can call the “chair” a “fork” if you so choose to call it this.
The point is, you are in control of how you choose to perceive things around you, including mathematical figures such as “111” and “1111”.
Therefore, if you think and believe “111” or “1111” or even “2367” to symbolize affirmations of what is real, then you are choosing to believe that these symbols are in fact, real. You are choosing to perceive your own reality a certain way because you are giving it meaning of being “true” and “real”. By looking outside of yourself in order to deem something as “true” or “real”, you are giving away your own manifesting powers because you are choosing to believe “true” and “real” comes from outside of yourself through your sight. I say “sight” because you actually see with your mind (brain) rather than your eyeballs. Think of it this way:
Your brain is the projector (the machine) and your eyes are the projection screens (the white screens used to view what the projector gives out).
The Law of Attraction states, “like attracts like”. This means what you project outward is what is reflected TO you. The Universe operates in a boomerang effect because energy is influenced upon itself since the entire Universe IS energy. The energy from YOUR thoughts and beliefs are what plays out in front of you for you to perceive.
How to ManiFAST Using Your Own Perception: An Experiment
Now that you are approaching “thought” from a different angle because everything literally comes FROM your brain’s vibrational energy, perform an experiment on yourself:
Take something other than “111” or “1111” and give it the same meaning of affirming self-confidence and self-belief for what you desire to experience as “true” and “real” in your physical sphere. Example: the color pink or purple. See how it works out over the next week. Your subconscious and your conscious brain will “look” for the color.
But this does NOT mean you are not a powerful creator of your own reality!
Because everything is influenced upon itself because everything is energy…which means perception IS “reality” in how you choose to think and believe with your FOCUS.
And this is why so many spiritual teachers say to have a detached approach to manifesting your desires. Your vibrational energy is how the Universe responds to you. Again, it doesn’t have emotions. You have emotions, energy is unbiased.
So, pick something you are not emotionally tied to for your experiment for the next week and watch how your brain chooses to focus with your thoughts. Remember, YOU are a powerful creator of shaping energy into specific shapes that you give meaning to because of what you expect to “see” due to your focus and beliefs.
I have come down with a cold this past week and I have been spending my time taking it easy as much as possible. Throughout this time, I was reflecting on what it means to “believe” in something:
When I state to myself that I “trust the Universe”, do I actually do so? Or, do I state it in hopes to persuade myself to do so?
If I want to fully trust the Universe, what will I give up in both my thoughts and daily behaviors in order to allow myself to fully believe?
These are great Mastering Manifesting journaling prompts to ask yourself this week as you write into reality everything you desire to have and experience in your life and in your career. And you WILL, so long as you give yourself permission to do so.
Reply and let me know how it goes for you! Have a beautiful week!

“You have to keep going no matter what because your end results outweigh your temporary mistakes.”
Jaclyn Johnston is the author of “Don’t Feel Stuck!”, CEO of Manifest It!, and assistant to the world-renowned physicists at the University of Texas at Arlington. Her focus is on teaching others how to build their self-esteem, transform their beliefs, and take soul-inspired actions in order to ManiFAST: Manifest Faster! She teaches thousands of people proven Law of Attraction methods paired with cognitive behavioral training through her books and online mentoring programs.
Thank you so much for doing this with us! What is your “backstory”?
I wrote the “Don’t Feel Stuck!” books and started mentoring people because I was suffering from anxiety and feeling hopeless about everything in my life. I spent most of my 36 years reacting and making decisions stemming from fear and worry. I decided to perform an experiment on myself in early 2017, and it totally worked! I was able to manifest 99% of all my life’s desires within 10 months through what I call Mastering ManiFASTing writing! I know if someone as stubborn and fearful as I was can learn how to shift their mindset system and manifest very quickly, then it’s definitely possible for everyone. I still have anxiety, but because of learning how to respond in empowering ways rather than emotionally reacting, I have taken control of both my mindset system and my life. I put everything I learned from my experiment in 2017 into my books and online mentoring programs for others to also master and be able to ManiFAST.
Can you share your top three “lifestyle tweaks” that you believe will help support people’s journey towards better wellbeing?
My top three lifestyle tweaks I believe help one on their journey toward better wellbeing are:
1) Understanding that the past only repeats itself if you choose to allow it to do so. This is because of your mental choices — what you choose to believe as real is the story you focus on. The Universe always operates with a boomerang effect in that it will always reflect back to you what you continually focus on and believe to be real.
2) Daily mindset writing helps to release what no longer serves you with your soul’s highest happiness. Releasing what is no longer needed, establishing newly empowering thoughts and beliefs, and writing out your new reality in the present all help to manifest your desires more quickly and with ease.
3) Be thankful each day for all the good things in life because the compound effect of gratitude mixed with taking soul-inspired actions to show the Universe what you truly want adds up to big, prosperous results.
Combining these three tweaks on a daily basis helps you to level up in your life quickly and with ease. You live a happier life, you feel more abundance and blessings, and the Universe’s boomerang effect reflects more of the same back to you quickly.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your career?
Through daily mindset journaling and setting my intentions, I successfully manifested 99% of all my life’s desires within 10 months and continue to manifest even more with rapid speed including:
My manifestation story being featured on “The Secret” Stories website
Meeting my icon and favorite mentor, Bruce Springsteen
Being credited in a Hollywood short film narrated by Tilda Swinton and with music by George Lucas’s company
Releasing $29,000 debt and my income continually growing
After nine years of being fearful of men, manifesting real and authentic love with my true best friend and soulmate/twin flame within 10 months of being open to it
A majorly positive shift in my work assisting world-renowned physicists
Receiving a brand-new car of my choosing for free
Can you share a story about the biggest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
About four months into my business, I made a $2,000 investment into a digital coach. Unfortunately, the sales pitch gave the illusion of way more than I thought I was going to receive. It took me a long time to mentally move on from it because I was already in so much debt at the time. What I learned from it was that in everything you do in your business and in your life, you’re going to make mistakes. It’s part of the process of growing, learning, and leveling up in both your business and in your life.You have to keep going no matter what because your end results outweigh your temporary mistakes.
Everything you experience that is challenging is actually a learning lesson to help you gain clarity and wisdom on your journey.
In the words of Albert Einstein, “Failure is success in progress.” I remember his words each time I feel like I’m having a “setback”, but it’s really just part of the progress of success because I choose to view it this way.
When it comes to health and wellness, how is the work you are doing helping to make a bigger impact in the world?
Everything stems from your brain. Sometimes people forget how much your brain is responsible for every aspect of your body’s ability to function accordingly with Mother Nature, including your heart’s functioning. What I’m doing is teaching souls to embrace their magical manifesting organ, learn how to harness their true mindset power and create success beyond their unimaginable dreams.
It does not matter where you came from, how you were treated in the past or how you feel about yourself right now in the present.
I’m here to help you unleash your manifesting mojo by guiding you to empower your beautiful self, realize your unwavering worth and kick it all up into high gear to start living your life by your own terms and being happy, successful and abundant in everything you do!
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?
Yes! I’ve had a few people help me along my entrepreneurial journey: my amazing book editor, Melis Therrien; my business coach, Olivia Charlet; my business coach, Katrina Ruth from The Katrina Ruth Show; my business coach, Coach Nick from Freedompreneurs Club; and many more. I truly feel so many of us have beautiful gifts to share with others not only to gain knowledge around entrepreneurship but also to guide us along the way.
Most recently, Coach Nick was super helpful to me because his coaching breaks down the “how” of each step in building your online mentoring business. So many coaches preach to act from your soul, and while this is definitely true, there is also a strategy involved in growing your business. He simplifies the “how,” is there for you each step of the way and is so giving in everything he does in his mentoring. I am truly thankful to him and to everyone else who has helped and continues to help me even today.
If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of wellness to the most amount of people, what would that be?
My movement would be to ensure that the practice of improving mental health is recognized in an even more positive light and for everyone to have access to mental healthcare in an affordable way, because truly your quality-of-life starts with your mental health.
There is so much focus in the media about how people become mentally ill and cause harm in some way, whether it’s to themselves or to others. If we spent as much energy on the benefits of practicing good mental health hygiene as we do on the negative effects of neglecting it, we could really start helping one another in an empowering and positive way all around the world.
Many countries look to the United States to lead, and I really want positive mental health hygiene to be embraced with normalcy and for everyone to be able to have equal access to it without it costing so much for the average household. It’s completely disheartening so many souls cannot afford good mental healthcare while being able to sustain a living. If I could start a movement to bring the most amount of wellness to the most amount of people, this would definitely be my soul’s purpose-work.
What is your “3 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Started” and why?
3 Things I wish someone told me before I started Manifest It! are:
1) The more you compare yourself to other people’s success the more it only slows down your own success. This is because you aren’t focusing on gratitude with a daily compound effect. No one becomes successful overnight, so please cut yourself some slack and stop comparing your entrepreneurial journey to other people’s journeys. You are right here in this very moment for a reason, and this reason is helping you to receive your success if you so choose to trust the process and be open to any and all blessings that are coming into your life.
2) Acknowledging and celebrating all your positive moments along the way. I cannot stress how important it is to not expect Hollywood moments when it comes to your success. Your success is built up over time with the compound effect. This does not mean you cannot receive success quickly; you most definitely can. The Universe reflects back to you what you believe to be possible, so be thankful for all of your steps along the way and embrace each and every positive moment as a successful moment. Forward-moving steps each day add up to big results, and it can happen quickly. Be open to the “how” and “when”, and watch how fast it comes to you for you!
3) Pace yourself and have a “back-to-basics” plan. Being an entrepreneur, odds are you are a total go-getter and over-achiever. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of it all, and then you are all of a sudden so exhausted that you aren’t even sure how you ended up this way. I like to have a “back-to-basics” blueprint so that way when I do take on new projects, I am still sticking to my core business model, regardless of whether or not my new projects pan out. For example, what is my main message to souls all over the world? I teach them how to release their fears and ManiFAST by shifting their limiting thoughts and beliefs. If I didn’t have my main business’s blueprint firmly set in place, I could easily get caught up in all the distractions in the entrepreneurial world. By having a core blueprint in place, it helps keep you on track as you grow your empire.
Do you have a “girl-crush” in this industry? If you could take one person to brunch, who would it be?
If I could take one “girl-crush” to brunch, it would most definitely be Shirley Manson from the band Garbage! She is unapologetic in her truth, completely creative in her musical ways to inform the world of the issues of mental illness and doesn’t shy away from standing up for others’ well-being. She is involved in many organizations for cancer research, is the ambassador for the MAC AIDS Fund, fights for animal rights and is involved in other charities.
She is an advocate for mental health, and I especially appreciate that she is open and honest with her own lessons from her past struggles. To me, this is an extremely beautiful thing: being 100% transparent in your truth and never giving up in life. She is the meaning of authentic strength and beauty, not to mention a total rockstar. Yeah, I would most definitely love to meet her!
Sustainability, veganism, mental health and environmental changes are big topics at the moment. Which one of these causes is dearest to you, and why?
Mental health is incredibly dear to me because without having a happy and healthy mindset, you cannot even begin to positively influence any of the other causes mentioned in the above.
Sometimes you think, “when is it going to come!?” Well, speaking from experience, the more you wait for it, the longer you will wait. It’s like watching a pot of water waiting for it to boil over. You feel like it takes forever for the water to boil, but as soon as you turn away and focus on the other dishes, BAM! It starts boiling over with water.
Manifesting is a journey of practicing the art of surrendering. Like attracts like, but both your conscious and your subconscious have to fully believe your desires ARE yours, 100%. No buts, it just IS, it’s DONE. And you move on with your other “dishes” because your desired car, or your desired money, or your desired spouse is NOT going to be the sole key to solve all your problems. Think of all the celebrities and rich people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.
At the end of the day you could have 100% of everything you ever wanted and still be unhappy if you don’t stop trying to control your surroundings and the outcome. Your job is not to figure out the “how” or the “when”. Your job is to BELIEVE it to be so, it’s done! And then? Then you move on to other things in your life and not obsess over it because…
Your manifestations ARE being delivered to you by UPS: Universe Parcel Service.
Speaking of like attracts like…I was doing my daily visualizations about what I am currently manifesting and on Sunday I had a call with an Emmy-winning former CNN news reporter about doing PR for my brand and my books. Even though I chose not to go with their PR proposal, it doesn’t mean I didn’t attract this person into my physical sphere because of all the envisions I have been entertaining for my current life-goals. It’s no disrespect to this soul AT ALL, it just wasn’t in alignment with what my soul truly wants.
When you perform your Mastering ManiFASTing journaling, do you write with FULL conviction? I do. And while I attracted a soul from the big leagues to give me a PR proposal, I realized this was “practice” for the real thing. Even though I chose not to go with the proposal, it doesn’t mean my manifestations aren’t happening.
It just means it’s time to refine, define, and polish what I’m funneling into my physical sphere.
So, keep going! Keep working on your beliefs from both a conscious and subconscious level (they play together, you can’t have one without the other). Keep moving and grooving. If you feel yourself getting wobbly, go do something that feels GOOD to help you re-focus and take a U-turn into getting you back into your high vibin’ place again.
PS- I’m going on vacation for a few days. I somehow manifested Paul McCartney tickets towards the front of the stage! I spent 45 minutes clicking over and over again online back in December. I was struggling and trying so hard to mentally make it happen. And then I got frustrated and gave up. I surrendered to the outcome and right when I did, BAM! The tickets showed up and they are on the ground near the front of the stage! YES!
I believe in you, keep going, you’ve got this! And remember…
