Matthew 7:7–8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you
I like to think of myself as a helper. I have done nothing my whole life but try to help everyone to my detriment. But it isn’t always so bad and every so often I give some pretty good advise or a helping hand to someone in need. Some appreciate it some look at me like I have three heads and four eyeballs. So the other day when someone asked me if manifestation really works. I offered some advice that’s helped me understand a little about manifes-tion. I told them, it does work but there is more to it than writing positive affirmations and saying them out loud everyday. You literally have to have the right mental program and a positive belief system in my opinion for it to work in your favor. Now I have personally found myself manifesting some negative ass stuff in my life. That’s how I originally found out about manifestation in the first place. There was a time not too long ago that I had no clue we were literally creating our realities. But I did notice often in my life, that when I obsessively thought about the things that could go wrong they would began to physically manifest into my reality. I even noticed that when my thoughts are scattered my surroundings would be too. My house would be a hot mess. Clothes piled up, appliances would stop working, I couldn’t keep the kitchen clean to save a life and everything was just chaotic. I remember thinking to myself ‘damn imagine what I could do if I didn’t worry so much.’ That’s when all of a sudden these different downloads would come about manifestations then I would go on Youtube and videos on the subject would be in my feed. I started watching out of curiosity and reading different articles and blogs to see if I could turn my negative manifesting into positive results instead. So I tried the two cup method one time. I thought I was putting my all into it. I followed all the instructions. I got my two glasses. Placed my intentions, put my energy into the water and drank it when I felt like I had done it to the best of my ability. I did it for a few days. I was trying to manifest the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstake. I know that sounds crazy but why not. So the day of I waited as they put clues as to what state they were in and gave updates to how close they were to getting to the next winners house. When I realized they were actually in Florida and actually in my county one city over from me I thought wow I am really about to do this!! Well guess what happened?! They were in Winter Haven Florida but not for me. It’s like I manifested them close to me but the 1,000,000 went to some old lady who really needed it for her husbands medical bills. I felt defeated. And cheated. Then realized how selfish that was because someone who needed it had gotten blessed and here I was crying because I just knew It would be me, I did the two cup method, wrote down positive affirmations like ‘ I’m a money magnet and money flows to me’ I even listened to manifestation frequencies every night for like a week! How did I not win? Well, what I didn’t know was that I could write all the affirmations I wanted, I could put energy into glasses of water all I wanted, I could listen to a 1000 mantras on Youtube and it still wouldn’t matter if I didn’t believe what I was saying to myself. My negative thoughts were coming from years of thinking low of myself and years of believing I would never have anything without busting my ass for it and it would only be so I could afford to pay bills for the rest of my life. My belief system was built on faulty, negative, low vibrations and it took years to get that way. So if I really wanted to manifest my desires I learned first I would have to go in and reconstruct my beliefs. That right there is easier said than done. How hard is it for a person who was constantly told their entire life how much of a screw up they were, to completely reprogram and rewire their mind into believing they aren’t a screw up and they are worthy? It’s very difficult. And when you try manifesting with that difficulty it makes things so much worse. Imagine someone who has low self esteem trying a proven method have it fail on them while everyone else proclaims how easy it is. It’s pretty heart shattering. Now you are thinking something is really wrong with you and your ego will make sure that you hear those ugly thoughts that keep you stuck. So when my friend asked does manifestation really work? I said, Hell yes it does but with some work. Nothing is that easy when it comes to the mind. It’s complicated. So if you have been trying to manifest a new career, a soulmate, a new home. You will have to check yourself and listen to your thoughts. How do you feel about you for real? How do you talk to yourself? If you notice nagging thoughts and negative self talk then you might want to correct that before you start trying to script your desires. Otherwise you are just going to make yourself feel defeated. Trust me. I am still working on my reprogramming and that’s to be continued.
