One of the lessons that being single has taught me is the importance of self-love. When you go a while without being romantically involved with someone, you have no choice but to focus on yourself and on how you can grow while you wait for the right person to come along.
One of my recent blog posts had to do with how thoughts become things. A lot of people don’t realise the power of words so I thought to speak about affirmations as one of the other ways in which you can quickly manifest whatever you want (while also making use of methods such as visualisation and gratitude).
You’re probably sighing deeply from the title because you’re either a sceptic when it comes to love and/ or the Law of Attraction and you’ve already emotionally prepared yourself for another lonely Valentine’s Day, or you’re simply curious and want to give this a shot, or find out if this is click bait because maybe it turns out, when you get to the end of this post, that I’ll be sitting on my couch this year, once again, snuggled up with my mom while we watch some of her favourite TV shows like it’s another ordinary night, only this time, I bought loads of chocolate.
This past week, the only thing pretty much flooding all my social media feeds and timelines has been Ariana Grande’s 7 Rings. As a fairly new fan of her music and her as an artist and as someone who’s fairly new to the Law of Attraction, most times that I’ve sat to listen to some of her songs’ lyrics, I’ve almost fallen off my seat because of how she’s spoken things into existence through her music or how she comes across as someone who constantly uses the Law of Attraction to bring things to fruition for herself.
My year sort of started off late as I’d gone off to spend the rest of my festive season with my best friend in the Eastern Cape Province (South Africa).
In the past, like many people, approaching the New Year meant setting resolutions. I’ve gotten over the hype around that since I don’t do too well with sticking to long-term goals but, I’ve noticed how very few people throw their spirituality into their various resolution lists.
I’ve been manifesting attracting my soul mate for almost an entire year now and it’s been fun, games, hard work and sometimes actual tears. I’d scripted about this man and made a whole list of qualities which I thought would complement mine if he had them and, let me tell you, it hasn’t been an easy journey but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.
Some years after we’d moved into our home, my mom told me about how, on her way to my dad’s hometown when they were still married, she used to drive past this very area we stay in and say to herself every time, “if I were to buy myself a house, it would be right here”. Sometimes we wish for things out loud and manifest them into our reality without even giving it a second thought; we feel the desire boil passionately in our hearts, intend it out loud and we forget about it until it’s right in front of us years, months or even days after. That is the power of the tongue and of the mind.
A lot of the time, people get caught up in asking and asking to fulfil their materialistic desires and I’ve realised that this is a habit that some people have, not just towards the Universe/ God but towards other people too.
I’ve always been one to believe that there is a time and place for everything. I lived by this saying that went “what’s for you shall not miss you” and while it’s proven to be true for me, I’ve also learned to manipulate the saying by often manifesting things that I otherwise would have never believed I was deserving of.
