First of all, what is manifestation? While at first glance it may sound a little cooky, it’s actually very simple and very effective. Basically, it’s the concept that you can bring whatever you want into your life by thinking positively. Crazy, right? It’s actually a law! The law of attraction, stating that all the good you put into the universe will come back to you in some way or another. This idea can be found in various religions, just under a different name. While there are an abundance of ways to educate yourself on this topic, watching The Secret being a great one, you honestly can’t go wrong reading anything by Deepak Chopra. It really just takes the ability to see beyond the logical, and let yourself do something kind of ridiculous! Crazy things happen all the time, who’s to say you can’t live the life you’ve always wanted?
The first step to this is letting go of your preconceived ideas and letting your imagination run free. What have you always wanted? The house of your dreams? With an ocean view and picket fences; or marble counters and high ceilings? Whatever it may be, the law of attraction says that you can get it. Apparently, it’s that easy! Just let yourself imagine what you truly want. All you have to do it picture it. Feel your hands dragging along the railing of a glass staircase, or see the waves crashing below from your kitchen window. And with the joy this image brings, you should feel gratitude for what you already have. Really, most areas of spirituality stem from a fundamental belief in gratitude. From what I’ve gathered from this concept, gratitude is the ingredient you need to live a happy and fulfilling life. Even if you’re a busy single Mom, or a student drowning in debt, finding a way to acknowledge that there is so much good in your life, even though you may not recognize it, can be the simple mindset shift you need to take control of your life. Imagine, feel gratitude and finally, be patient. The law of attraction states that by following these steps, it will happen. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not today- but it will come to you if you live as if all the things you’ve always wanted are already yours. That beach house is yours, it just hasn’t found its way to your Realtor yet, and it will!
If I could pick one thing for you to take away from this article, it would be to have faith and find a way to enjoy your life. It will never be perfect, but it’s what you make of it – mind over matter!
