Let me preface this by saying that I’m not necessarily the kind of person who believes in Law of Attraction or anything like that. Never have been. People say I’m pragmatic, but I prefer sensible.
Anyway here’s my story…
For the past ten years, I’d been running my dad’s carpentry business. 8 months ago, I had to close it down after being in the red for a better part of last year. Having run my dad’s business to the ground, I’m almost ashamed to admit… I wasn’t in the best state of mind. I’d lost my confidence, and doubted my own ability as the sole breadwinner in the family to provide for my wife Joan and our two boys.
We struggled with the bills (especially the mortgage on our house) on a bag boy’s salary (no one was hiring at the time except the local grocery store) but we did what we could. Joan even offered to look for a job herself, but we couldn’t leave our two boys at home. We could barely keep the lights on, so paying for a babysitter was out of the question.
Then, about 4 months ago, my brother dropped by the house, and I was shocked by how good he was doing. Last I remembered he was up to his neck in debt, but there he was, rolling up in a swanky new Cadillac, looking spiffy like some Texan oil tycoon.
Of course, we got talking about how he’d gotten over his money troubles, and he mentioned something that made me wonder if he was messing with me. He said he’d gotten a book called Vibrational Manifestation, and had learned how to “align his vibrational frequency” for wealth and success. I must have looked at him like he was crazy when he said he wanted me to give it a shot.
Even though I had my doubts, Joan convinced me to try it, so I did.
And what did I think of it? Well…
Let’s start with what Vibrational Manifestation is all about.
Basically, the author Matthew Norman claims that the one thing that determines our success in life is our vibrational frequency. He writes that there is a greater, unseen link between the universe and every person in it. The state that we find ourselves in, whether it’s poverty or wealth, has to do with how “in sync” we are with frequencies associated with such states. These frequencies can be measured through our brainwaves. The author also says that we can change our states of being by altering our frequency, which in turn can be achieved by changing the way we think, the things we do, etc.
The basic idea here is whatever outcome you desire in life depends on the energy you send out to the universe. If you want a positive outcome in your wealth, you have to get into the right “vibrational state” to send out positive energy and intentions into the universe.
Now to be frank, I found some of the stuff about the universe and frequencies and vibrations to be a bit much. But the idea behind some of the stuff taught in this book made sense. If you want success then why wouldn’t you visualize the success you’ll achieve? Why wouldn’t you think, live, breathe success 24/7?
So I learned all I could from the Vibrational Manifestation book. I applied every lesson that had me changing my “vibrational state”, and did all the exercises that would have me be “in sync” with the more successful version of myself. I even used one of the bonuses that the author included to practice meditation (Joan said it would help me be less of a hothead, and it has).
And you know what?
A month and a half after finishing that book, things actually started looking up! I got a job offer from an old acquaintance who came back to town, doing what I do best. I was given the chance to revive my old carpentry business, and I’m making the most of it. In fact, business has picked up in recent weeks that I can hardly keep up!
So would I recommend Vibrational Manifestation?
Absolutely. While some of the concepts addressed in the book may sound a bit esoteric, the practical strategies included within its pages is still plenty helpful when you’re looking to make a change. If you find yourself feeling as if you’re stuck in a rut, doesn’t matter if it’s about money or your job, or whatever you’re not happy with in life, then you definitely need to check out Vibrational Manifestation.
