Manifestation Story- The Grand

Note: This is a post about the Law of Attraction (LOA). For a background on LOA click here. :)

Back in 2016 I wrote a post about manifesting some perfume I liked which had felt "felt out of reach" for me before. You can read that here:

Today I thought I'd share another "manifestation story". This time it's about The Grand Hotel in Brighton. :)

The Grand Brighton is a luxury hotel on the seafront. I've wanted to visit it for years but never had a chance to go, I couldn't afford to stay there or anything. (I did once know someone who worked there, so I suppose there was a slight link!). I put it on my Life List (like a bucket list) about 10 years ago! Last year I looked up afternoon tea there but it was quite expensive for me and I couldn't afford it at the time.

Manifesting and Mental Health- Part 1

Note: This is a post about the Law of Attraction (LOA). For a background on LOA click here. :)

Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor, so if you're having mental/physical issues please seek medical help in addition to reading this. :)

In my LOA Round-up post I mentioned how I was planning to write about manifesting and mental health. You can read that post here:

So here is Part 1. I've decided to do it in a couple of parts because I feel like I can't cover everything in one post. :)

You'll often come across Law of Attraction articles, books and videos giving you a specific formula to follow and stories of the wonderful transformations that people have made. The problem is that a certain formula or way of doing things isn't going to work for everyone, because we're all different. We all have different life circumstances. I know you're supposed to be able to overcome all that by "raising your vibration" aka feeling better and changing your energy and beliefs, but what if it's not that simple? Sometimes can try all these techniques but you just appear to be really STUCK. And what if you are going through a hard time and/or have a mental illness?

Feeling Your Emotions- Neutral


This is the next post in the Feeling Your Emotions series. You can read the introduction here:

Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor, so if you're having mental/physical issues please seek medical help in addition to reading this. :)

I started this series in late 2017. So far I've covered what are deemed more "negative" emotions-  anger, sadness and depression, fear and anxiety and shame. The last post was in February, so it's been a while! As I said in the post Feeling Like a "Loser" (not part of the FYE series but kind of related), I feel that the next post should be a "neutral" one, so it's a sort of halfway point between the previous emotions, before moving onto the more "positive" ones such as happiness and love. I also mentioned the Abraham Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale, which you may have heard of if you follow the Law of Attraction (LOA). In LOA circles it's believed that it's not very easy to just "jump the scale" from something like discouragement further down on the scale) to contentment (higher up). Kelsey Aida has a good introduction to the concept which you can see here:

Mid-2019 Reflections

Last year I wrote a mid year reflection post. The year before I wrote one reflecting on the year so far in May and in 2018 I did it in June, because it's mid year. Read last year's post here:

The past couple of years I've done posts at the end of the year too. You can read my Letting Go of 2018 post here:

So now it's June again and I'm doing another mid year reflections post. :) It always seems like the year goes by quickly lately, and I think, "How is it June already?!". But some of the months seem to be long. Like April and May seemed to be quite long but the middle of the year has come quickly, if that makes sense! lol. On my other blog The Seasonal Life I've been doing monthly updates. Visit this link for May's update:

In the 2018 post I said how it took me a while to "settle" into the year, till about May. This year as I mentioned in the April Update on TSL, I started to feel better when spring came and the weather lightened up.
