If my mother had a superpower, this would be it because, in my opinion she is the queen of manifestation and speaking things into existence. Sometimes I’m in awe of her ability to do it and when they turn from a dream to reality; it is always mind-blowing. This is something I wished I had practiced a lot more in my teenage years because it would have been helpful and kept me more consistent and dedicated, but I have now taken full advantage of it in my early 20’s; I AM LETTING GOD KNOW THE THINGS I WANT.
From a biblical standpoint, I have always believed the proverbs of life and death are in the power of the tongue, we speak the things we want into our life both negative and positive so I am mindful of the things I say. I have a book that I put all my hopes, dreams and everything in between in, it’s basically my manifestation book and I love writing in it. I have a simple vision board that I am about to add more creativity to it, a few places I want to travel as well, academic goals, career ideas etc I just write anything I want to speak into existence.
If you are good at manifestation then leave a few helpful tips in the comment section, I have listed my top 4 tips below, I hope they are helpful in some way. My top 4 tips when it comes to Manifestation and Speaking Things Into Existence are:
- KNOW WHAT YOU WANT: you can’t manifest something that you are still confused about so make sure you are certain this thing you desire is something you really want/need in your life and it’s not just an in the moment idea or dream.
- BE PATIENT AND HAVE FAITH: I’m not a patient person, it is still something I am working on because things take time but I am learning my time isn’t always God’s timing. In terms of faith, I just keep telling myself have faith as small as a mustard seed (it’s a biblical parable) and it works for me. Also, the race isn’t for the swift but for those who can endure, this is a good affirmation/mantra to bear in mind when you get impatient.
- PUT IN THE WORK: nothing comes easy, you have to put the work in so while you are speaking it into existence put some action behind it for it to exist. My mom always tells me you can’t sit around and hope your dreams are going to magically happen, you have to work towards it.
- DON’T GIVE UP: no matter what don’t give up on your dream/goal, be relentless in your pursuit of it. Do not be jealous of others and how fast their dreams are being fulfilled, acknowledge your progress, and keep going. The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight but they while their companions slept, were toiling upwards in the night; that quote is by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
THIS WEEK’S RECOMMENDATIONS
Books: I have gone back to my book roots and I am rereading a few Wattpad books, KayneInteruptedMe is my FAVOURITE Wattpad writer, all her books are amazing I’ll link her profile below, go check her out. Jake the Panty-Ripper, The Ex, The Donofrio Donor, and VIP are my favourites! Link: https://www.wattpad.com/user/KanyeInterruptedMe
Music: J Balvin “Rojo” this is a track from his album Colores, I really like it, to be honest, it’s more soulful and softer but that reggaeton vibe is still present. The official video is great as well you should definitely watch it.
Aya Nakamura feat Maluma “DJADJA (Remix)” I loved the original and this remix is no exception, I love Maluma’s twist it’s spicy and Aya is perfection as always. The track was released in 2018 but the song has had quite a few remixes, yes, it is that good. I have a few more Aya recommendations, but I might include them in my must listen to summer playlist post.
Movies: Moonlight, this movie was released in 2016 and I have to say Call Me by Your Name was my favourite movie until I watched Moonlight, I loved the sequence the movie took when showcasing Chiron’s transition from childhood to adulthood. I think it is a good representation of growing up as a black male especially in an environment where homophobia is at a high and very intense. The movie itself speaks volumes, the actors are very gifted and talented (Jharrel Jerome is FINEEEEE his mother should have named him wine!), the actors and scenes provoked a lot of emotion for me and thought process. The movie is on Netflix so please keep an open mind and watch it. Let me know in the comments if you’ve seen it before and share your thoughts on it.
