What Do You Peeps Think about the concept of "Manifesting"? (Public Board)
The notion that your mental state and your state of optimism vs despair are responsible for creating real world circumstances in your life.
Think "The Secret", EG, an Oprah affiliated pop culture fluff book.
I occasionally see someone state in forum threads (not here) that XYZ does not work for them. Then someone else almost mockingly rebuts them that they are manifesting their own failure.
What I think and believe:
Manifesting is probably mostly responsible for creating your life circumstances. It's probably more of a determinant of success/failure than IQ, talent in some area, or being made by someone for most people.
There is likely a huge amount of micro-decisions that you make in your life that together push your fortunes up or down, and they are kind of involuntary because they're based on your sense of whether success is possible.
In life I've been on a roll and everything worked out fine, and I've been in the shitter and every attempt I made to improve my circumstances resulted in mockery of me. These patterns persist like the La Nina/El Nino weather currents - they stay around a long time.
What say anyone with a notion about this?
