manifestation: part one

I’ve been getting into the law of attraction and manifestation and so far I enjoy it. This will be a part one of however many posts because I’m fresh into learning about this topic. Law of attraction, to put it simply, is the belief that you can attract things into your life rather good or bad, positive or negative. Manifestation goes hand in hand with LOA and is basically the act of practicing law of attraction in a way. I was first introduced when a coworker mentioned it and since then I have been hooked. My coworker recommended that I read and watch The Secret. I watched the documentary that can currently be found on Netflix or youtube and then ordered the book because I was so interested in the topic. Law of attraction isn’t some weird magic or cult type of thing, so anyone is safe to engage in it. It is simply choosing positivity over negativity and having faith that you can have a life that you desire. I have been practicing it and do notice some changes which I will choose to share in another post, once I’m more comfortable with the topic. For now, I will link a video to my new favorite youtuber, Leeor Alexandra, a spirituality and lifestyle blogger who have numerous videos on LOA and manifestation! Her videos have helped me learn more and anyone interested should check her out!

for clout.

I recently listened to a podcast speaking on why we post, why we chase the dreams we do, why we create, etc. To sum it all up, the pastor, Steven Furtick, questioned why some of us post on social media or do anything in general. For me, being a writer and of course wanting writing to eventually be my career, this podcast spoke to me. It spoke to me specifically on a creative/creator level. Pastor Steven questioned if we would still post/create/do things if we didn’t get noticed? In a world where people do so much for clout, that is a valid question. Would you still post this if people wouldn’t comment on it? Would you still try and be whatever it is that you are, if you wouldn’t get recognized? if being rich isn’t the outcome? As a writer, I don’t want to ever feel like I am writing to be known or rich or for the wrong type of attention. I write because I love to and I believe we should all do things because we truly desire to. If there is no genuine passion behind the journey, why pursue it? I believe this goes for us all, we should always self evaluate and if we aren’t being honest and genuine with our intentions, perhaps we shouldn’t do it.
