We all have heard of the law of attraction and many of us put it into practice. We know our thoughts become reality and thereby do our best to remain focused on what it is we desire instead of what we no longer want. We do our best to quit bitching and complaining. We shift to focusing on the positive and holding a place of gratitude within our hearts for the blessings we have been given.
This is always easier said than done and for most people, myself included at times, we just can’t figure out why the hell we aren’t drawing something into our lives. We’ve had success with the LOA before but now, nothing! I’m going to tell you, more often than not, the problem is you. You are what is holding yourself back. More specifically, it’s your limiting beliefs you might hold. Sometimes we are fully aware of these thought patterns while other times we have buried those feelings so completely that we haven’t a clue!
Have you wanted to manifest a new job that you’ll love but as soon as you land that dream interview or job, something bad happens that causes you to lose it? Instead of throwing blame, ask yourself, “am I afraid of success? do I think i’m not good enough?”. You may have limited beliefs which are forcing you to live the same old story without breaking free. In regards to love, you may secretly believe you are unworthy of love regardless of the countless “I deserve love” affirmations you do.
This is good though because it means you have the power to destroy those negative thought patterns to create new more inspired positive thoughts.
Don’t sabotage yourself. You deserve to be happy, loved, free, and to live a life you love. Stop placing the blame on others and take an honest look at yourself. What thoughts do you keep having? This isn’t about scolding or getting angry with yourself. It’s identifying a problem and implementing a solution. Set yourself free of limiting beliefs. Manifest the life you desire. You’re worth it!

Card of the Day
The Arrow Master
This card is all about manifestation and the three major points: intent, focus and direction of energy, and allowance. (Of course there’s more to it but this is sort of the basic skeleton of it.) Without all of these steps, magick cannot happen. Perhaps you’ve been desperately trying to manifest something and its not happening. Maybe you have set your intentions and you are too specific on what it is you want.
Relax and ease up. Desperation and too much control are only going to cause a restriction of room for your desire to manifest. Maybe you have done the opposite and allowed room for the Universe to work but aren’t focusing your own energy. Remember, you must do the work too. You must actively work towards your manifestation. Magick will help it come to you but you must be willing to back your desire up in the physical plane.
Today, if you’re indeed having these problems (and even the most experienced of witches can), take note of which step you may not be fully participating in. Have you set your intentions? Gotten specific? Have you focused your energy and directed it towards your goal? Lastly, have you given the Universe some wiggle room on how to provide your desire? This also implies you allowing the manifestation to come into your life. Allowance is key and trips some people up. Just take note and fix that which isn’t working. You can manifest your dreams.
The Autumn Witch
*Card from the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms deck by Colette Baron-Reid
Take a moment to think about the first day of summer. How does that make you feel? What feelings and desires arise? For me, I think of hot days, outside tanning, yardsales, and fairs. We tend to become more active and joyful during these months as we long to spend our time outside, enjoying those longer days.
We tend to radiate more…or maybe that’s just sweat. When you are active and doing things that bring you joy then you send that vibration out into the Universe which means you will receive more joy. You will draw experiences and people to you that hold the same vibration.
So, the message for today is: Get out there and shine like the star that you are. (The sun is a star ) Be active. Enjoy the moment! If you’ve been wanting to try something new, go for it. Mediate on the summer solstice and how its energy is just bursting with life. Take this feelings and invoke it within yourself. Get out there and enjoy life. Spend some time outside, even if just five minutes.
