Ever since just before New Year's I've been intrigued by the power of visualization and positive thinking. This video explains the Law of Reaping and Sowing in a very clear way. One thing is for certain, the more positive energy you bring to the world the more joy you will have in your life.
Some time ago I realized that you can create for yourself some kind of hell. I had just moved to Des Moines and my thoughts were on a constant loop, focusing on lack and all the ways I didn't fit in. That first year I created my own kind of personal hell. My husband and I had moved into an expensive loft downtown, and the majority of the other apartment dwellers were well to do, with seemingly perfect looks and perfect lives. We were struggling to pay our bills, let along buy food and the other necessities for life. That was the year the Younker's building burned down, that night I went outside the apartment building and all these little bits of debris were raining down from the sky. That year I created a kind of suffering for myself because I just didn't feel like I belonged anywhere. I was a starving artist in a new city, this dream of moving back to the city I came from had turned into it's own kind of misery.
Do yourself a favor and create for yourself a kind of heaven on Earth instead. Life wasn't meant to be difficult ALL the time. As Thich Nhat Khan puts it so eloquently, joy and suffering inter-are, the only way one can exist is if the other is present also. But you can focus on the joys and really play them up and put less emphasis on things that bring you down.
I've been reading about visualization and manifestation for a while, specifically "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawaiin and "Creating on Purpose" by Anodea Judith. I've researched some on the web as well, I've done countless visualizations and seen some of them come to be.
I'm on a new path of harnessing the Law of Attraction to reach my goals in life. Sometimes I hit setbacks, but the thing is I'm often too quick to give up on my dreams. I will share more about my journey with manifestation as the summer continues because life is the greatest canvas to shape and mold. I'm so ready to craft the life of my dreams, and with the Law of Attraction anything is possible.
