Most of you have heard the quote “She believed she could, so she did” by R.S. Gray. Up until a few days ago I wrote that off as just a cheesy quote that people take too seriously, that was until I understood the law of attraction and the use of manifestation. The law of attraction is defined as the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. In order to better understand the logic behind the law I recommend watching this video by Margot Lee (she also has a blog post about this, the link is in the description of her video)
Manifestation is the practice of the law of attraction by speaking things into existence within your life, for example saying “I will travel more and experience new things”. It is extremely important to use “I will” in place of “I want to” in order to make the phrase intentional by using positive wording. By saying these things out loud it will not only hold you accountable, encourage you, but you will also realize that the reason and method behind your actions are now done with the clearest of intentions in mind. Once you have a clearer mindset you begin understanding what you have to do to attain your goals and in turn you work harder and take bigger risks, because the best things happen outside of your comfort zone.
Now with all of this in mind lets think about some successful manifestations that have already happened in our lives. I have always talked about going to WKU (11 year-old Des had decided that she would go to WKU as a psychology major, as a theatre major I deem the two close enough lol) 8 years later I am preparing to move in as a sophomore. From a super young age I wanted to be involved with theatre, since freshman year of high school alone, I have been apart of 12 shows. Think about your own life and the successes you have had just by talking about doing something, think about the paths of the manifestations, the struggles and triumphs you experienced along the way, as well as the gain, was it spiritual or physical?
Personally when I think of the things that I have received out of life I think of the people and events that got me to those places, if it was from moral support, a physical helping hand, or an experience that drove me, I am thankful. “Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction” a quote by Erich Fromm that I think everyone should live by. I have been raised to be a firm believer in karma, and I think that universe has a mysterious way of working. If you are not being pure about your intentions and are using manifestation for greed driven reasons the universe will take that into account, therefore meet success with a thankful spirit and a gracious heart.
I am obviously not an expert on the law or the practice but I am learning day by day. I started practicing this a week ago and have noticed massive changes in my life. Margot’s video and blog really opened my eyes to this whole practice, I linked the video at the top and I’ll link her blog right here, https://margotlee.com/2018/07/23/loa/ Not only is it a lot more in depth it has lots of helpful tips and resources as well. As my life is changing and I am growing I am working on becoming more mindful every day, hopefully this will encourage you to do the same.
