edit: I originally typed this up pretty hastily, so I went back and clarified what I originally wanted to convey. My words are only as true as you believe them to be. Hi Blades, It's been a while since I started a thread that I really wanted to be involved with, but here's the next one: Manifesting. The basic premise is, your thoughts come true. Thinking about getting money will get you money. Thinking about losing it will lose it. It's simple. The things you think about you will subconsciously start bringing into development. It's karma. It's "the law of attraction" It's a lot of things. It's popularly described in The Secret, the documentary-esque film by Abraham Hicks. Terence McKenna described it in Alien Dreamtime when the "machine elves" and he create objects with their voices. Words become objects. Thoughts become objects. There's a lot to it, but not a lot you need to know if you want to just utilize it. Just think about good things that you want and they will come. Ask and you will receive. I've been really applying this to my life. I'm all about manifesting now, and it is a really fantastic thing. I'm kind of in a hurry, so I'll start with my most recent manifestation, which is one of my most favorite yet and most immediate: This past Friday I was talking to a coworker about jobs we would like to have. I mentioned that landscaping is my preferred work, but that it seems hard to work landscaping in LA because of the large population of Mexican landscapers. That same Friday night, after I played on Hollywood Blvd for a while, this guy said to me "Are you finished playing? I've seen you around a bit; you're pretty good." I said something like, "Hey, thanks," and tried to be on my way, but then he continued, "I don't know if you're looking for work or anything, but I own a landscaping company. Here's my card." Today was my first day of work. Kick ass new job. Love ya Blades!
