If you are here and reading this, I manifested you to be here. I have not only attracted you here, but I have attracted everything in my life until now.
My mom believes a lot in manifestation and the law of attraction. She wanted me to get a glimpse of it at a young age, so when I was eleven she tricked me into watching The Secrets movie. The only thing that stayed with me after the movie ended was if you say good things, good things will happen to you. Over time I stopped practicing it but had it in the back of my mind.
A year and a half ago, I came across this book called You Can Heal Your Life. I read it because a friend asked me to read it. I read it just for the sake of it.
Fast forward to the lockdown. I was bored out of my mind and gave this book a fair shot. Reading this book, teleported me back to the moment my mom made me watch The Secrets. From what I gathered, the book and movie were sending one message, I am a magnet. I attract what I give out. If I give out negativity, I will get negativity and if I radiate positivity, I will be surrounded by positivity.
When I was in Junior College, I started thinking, “oh, I don’t have friends.” The universe heard me and said your wish is my common and with a blink of an eye, I was left alone. I simply thought I was stating the truth by saying I don’t have any friends, but in reality, I pushed the ones I had and choose to be isolated.
Manifestations don’t have a pause button. Everything we think or say subconsciously happens. I am constantly attracting things based on my thinking and feelings. I used to crack self-deprecating jokes, to earn the title of funny. But I think I went too far and jammed my self-esteem into the ground. Everything I said nonchalantly, was given to me by the universe.
All that we are is a result of what we have thought
About a month ago, I was out with my friend and I lost my wallet. I was freaking out. The chances of me finding it in the middle of the street were slim. I had lost all hope. But I wanted to believe I will find it. I grabbed my friend’s diary from her bag and just started writing ‘i have found my wallet’ over and over again. And you will never guess what happened, I had left my wallet at home. Based on a technicality, I didn’t lose it, but I like to believe I manifested it.
When we’re at a restaurant, once we place our order, and relax because we know it’s coming. After placing the order, do we think about all the ingredients they put? Do we think about how they made it? Do we obsess over the process? No, we place our order and trust the process because we know it’s coming. We don’t obsess over how they make and what they put. I usually just wait in anticipation, while imagining the taste. That’s exactly how manifestation works!
Desperation and anxiety are very common feelings when you’re thinking about what you want. But they hold us back. When we are obsessing over something it slips through our fingers easily. I have always been obsessed with Harry Potter. My dream is to go to the United Kingdom and see Kings Cross station, Hogwarts, and everything. Calling myself obsessed is an understatement. I have been lucky enough to plan a trip to the United Kingdom thrice, but right before I fixate on a plan something used to always go south.
My friend, Adi introduced me to a word called counter-intuitive. It means contrary to common sense. Ironic, isn’t it? One would think that thinking about what we want will bring us closer to achieving it. There’s a fine line between thinking and overthinking. Obsession leads to overthinking, doubt, and negative thinking. In my experience, whenever I have obsessed over something, it slipped through my fingers; on the other hand, whenever I have practiced manifestation by thinking and trusting the process, things have worked out for me. Trust is key in manifestation.
From now on, I am manifesting a great life for myself ahead.
