If there could be a slogan for manifestation theory, this would be it: Energy follows thought. Energy follows thought. Energy follows thought. And by the way…energy follows thought.

Manifestation happens from the mind. @DanielleLaPorte (Click to Tweet!)

For it to work effectively, you have to have a clarity of desire, then…root into the depths of positivity, then…fend off the doubts with Faith, and repeat.

But…is staying consistently positive even possible? I think it is. But it might not be what you think.

“Positive-thinking,” is where most manifestation techniques mess with our heads. We’re being trained to use it solely to try to get what we want. This is shallow positivity.

If we’re “thinking positive thoughts” just to manifest what’s on our vision board, then what happens when we don’t get what we want? We crash into negative thinking.

Positive thinking has to be rooted in the heart, not in the attainment of stuff. We need to go much deeper.

“Deep positivity” means that you have Faith that you’ll be okay, no matter what happens. Not if it all works out for you in the end. Not if you get what you want when you think you should get it. No matter what.

Deep positivity knows that Life will have your back even when you don’t manifest what you want.

Let your energy follow that thought.

Because that’s some white hot truth.
