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 week has been one for the books and it’s absolutely confirmed that this is going to be a good year for me as most of the things that I’d set intentions for and spent most of my time manifesting last year are beginning to take off for me.
IT’S THE MONTH OF LOVE!
For a lot of people, February is just a drag because it means that the shops are stocking up on Valentine’s day things to sell to you and you’re reminded quite bluntly that you’re the single friend while everyone has plans for February 14th and all you have, for yet another year, is your TV and a box of tissues (you could even blame my fellow Scorpios for this because apparently we created this lovely day to scam everyone into conceiving more Scorpios. I love this idea better). I really want to say that I feel your pain and that we can all virtually hold hands around an imaginary fire and sing some anti-love songs but, firstly, I’m here with a lot of self-love posts lined up for you and secondly, I’m manifesting a Valentine’s day date so I can’t cry with you this year. Sorry.
This week has been quite different for me. I’m not used to actively looking for things to be grateful for on a daily basis and this exercise has had me looking for more to be thankful for; more than pretty flowers, more than just the fact that I woke up today, more than just the fact that it rained this weekend.
After spending the last twelve months counting down to the end of it, we begin the cycle all over again in 2019.
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.
In a few of my past blog posts, I’ve mentioned scripting. This blog series—my break-down of the Law of Attraction—will hopefully help you understand the practice better and inspire you to give it a try whether you’re looking to manifest something as big as a new career or something as small as a few extra coins in your pocket to test the practice.
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.
