“what you seek, is seeking you”
Everyone has heard the phrase “watch what you tell yourself, because your thoughts become actions” but this phrase didn’t impact me as much as it did this year when I really started becoming aware of my thoughts. I’ve always been an advocate for “positive vibes” and trying to remain positive no matter what life throws your way because I know that positive thoughts yield positive results while thinking negativity can keep you from obtaining the things you want in life. If you say and believe things like “it will never work out or I’m not good enough” the universe hears it and returns it to you, hence whatever it is will not work out and you will not be good enough.
Whether we realize it or not we are responsible for the influences (positive or negative) we bring into our lives. Every positive or negative event that has happened to you was attracted to you, for example if your friend gave you money when you didn’t have it, you attracted it, or when a co-worker gave you a hard time, you attracted that too.
“Ask, Believe, Receive”
Attraction goes deeper than just positive and negative, you can attract different types of people to you but you can also attract the same types of people to you as well. For example if you know you have a pattern of dating people who ain’t shit, or are abusive, or you just manage to always end up in dysfunctional relationships, believe it or not you attracted that. Take it from Drake with his “I always fall for your type” statement if you keep thinking that way, you will constantly be in a never-ending cycle, constantly attracting the same types of individuals into your life all the while wondering why. (And because drake puts his love life out there, we see that he always dates the same types of women and they always end the same way). Nothing is a coincidence you attracted all the people who were in your life and left, are in your life at this very moment, and the ones still to come. Somewhere you hoped or prayed for these people or you subconsciously needed them.
In terms of attracting a certain people in your life, we attract who we want and what we want. If you apply the law of attraction to get what you want the other person won’t know why they are attracted to you…it’ll just be your energy, so they’ll be attracted to you but they won’t understand why. Some of the time these people only stay around for as long as there is a need for them other times these people only stay around for a season to teach us something.
With that being understood….here are some personal stories
Over the summer is where I first began to notice a lot of “weird” things started happening, and not realizing these weird things was just my awareness of the world around me becoming clearer . Everything I began to think of started to come to fruition, from the next song that played on my phone to the people who began showing up in my life. I asked my brother about it and he said research “the law of attraction” and when I did so much began to make sense. I even began speaking things out loud, like on my way to Trillectro, a Kid Cudi song came on my playlist and I told my friend “I really want him to perform this” and when he performed it me and my friend couldn’t help but look at each other in astonishment. (This was real it actually worked)
Another time, as I was walking around my favorite cool-out spot and I was on the phone with my friend discussing how much I enjoyed coming to see the turtles here but that I wanted my own turtle. The next day (I lie to you not) I found a baby turtle.
After getting out of my previous relationship I knew I wasn’t ready to jump back into another one just yet because there was a lot of healing, self-improvement and growth to be done. So I took the necessary time to myself to manifest not only what I had lost but also what I needed, all the while continuing to study this law of attraction. One day while on the phone with my sister Kee, she mentioned that she had a feeling someone would come into my life over the summer, as a little fling to ‘take my mind off things’, and being the intuitive person that she is, she has never been wrong.(I couldn’t help that I was still a little skeptical because my roster was at the time non-existent) Little did I know I subconsciously began creating this person that would come ‘take my mind off things’ and at the time not knowing just how much power was behind my thoughts as well as hers. I began speaking/thinking about the different traits and features I wanted this person to embody, so they could be beneficial to me. Low and behold around the beginning of June one of my guy friends I had a crush on from my past started following me on one of my social media platforms, I acknowledged it but didn’t make a big deal out of it. A few weeks later he slid in my DM’s and it was on from that point. As we started talking more and getting to learn each other I began to realize that this guy had some of the exact traits of the person I had manifested without realizing it and it was then that I noticed just how real my energy was. What I didn’t know at the time was why I had attracted this person and the impact they would have on me. I didn’t know this person would end up bringing out positive traits I needed that had been suppressed from my previous relationship or that they would give me a chance to express my emotions and share information I hadn’t been comfortable doing before now.
With the law of attraction, you will attract everything you require, including, wealth, health, people, increased happiness, connections…etc so if you ever want to try it out here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting
- You are like a magnet (like attracts like) you become and attract what you think
- Your thoughts send out energy
- Everything is energy..EVERYTHING
- People think about what they don’t want and attract more of the same
- Thought = creation. If the thoughts are attached to powerful emotions (good or bad) that speeds the creation
- Your thoughts cause your feelings
- When the opportunity or impulse is there..ACT
- When you see things you don’t want, don’t think, talk or write about them, remove your thoughts from “don’t wants”..and place them on “do wants”
- There are no rules on time, the more aligned you are with these positive feelings, the quicker it’ll happen
