Pretence is lying and you can never manifest by trying to trick your subconscious which is our direct alignment with the Universe. A lot of beginners find it very difficult to feel positive when they are trying to eliminate all negativity out of their lives. Some self-proclaimed coaches are preaching how to ‘pretend’ and ‘act’ ‘as if’ they have already received what they are currently desiring. This can’t be farther from the truth! You cannot hoodwink the Universe! No, this is not how Law of Attraction works. These experts should instead help by coaching how to persevere and continue to see life as half full rather than half empty glass, sipping every positive drop of the current life. You don’t ‘pretend’ that you’ve already received what you haven’t yet- instead, visualise how you would feel the moment Universe delivers your dream, without obsessing. Feel it in reality…till you find yourself actually smiling and feeling the tingle of excitement inside. The theory of ‘Let go’ and pretending are not the same things either. Let go means not obsessing over your desire, but think about it with love and believe in your dream to come true. To summarise- * Feel happy by appreciating what you currently have, so ask for more without thinking that you don’t have anything at present time. * Thank the Universe for all you have and practise genuine gratitude. * Meditate with a positive mindset and keep your aura clear of all negativity. * Don’t be daunted by any doubts; consider them as hurdles that you can cross to win the race. * Have faith that your desire will be delivered by the Almighty – without worrying about when and how. * Visualise your enhanced feelings on receiving your manifestation and enjoy that vibration. * Be truthful to your feelings including your initial doubts. These doubts will rinse away with the water of belief in and love for God as well as yourself. * Remember reality is true and not a pretence – you manifest when you receive your desire. Till then, it’s a journey of belief, gratitude, determination and continuation. This is where your action stops and leave the rest to the Universe. Grow within before you can grow outwardly. Be sceptic, if you feel it, but set up at least one 121 with yourself, sincerely. That’s where you will get most of the answers. Happy manifesting. Amen.
