dream manifestation

He’d watch
Until the faint dreams of a
Sunrise would give birth,
The new day’d be promised sleep,
And twilight could be labeled,
“Escapade” or “escape.”
Fled from only menagerie,
Broken be thy bonds when
Once enters the closed eye,
Dreamt, the languish, the anguish,
The tease, and trust, for others;
He’d be the same ol’ boy,
The “other” she’d never known.
And the only he’d ever been
—  L.C. (excerpt from “Manifest (and other moments prior the split)”)

anonymous asked:

Hey Ally, do you think day dreaming and manifesting are the same thing? If not, how do you think they differ?

In my eyes, they’re very different. Daydreaming is passive, while manifesting is active, something conscious and deliberate. When daydreaming we are just letting our imaginations wander wherever they please, we could be re-enacting old memories or envisaging  a horrific tragedy - whereas manifesting (to me) is about making your dreams a reality, things you actively want to happen. 

When manifesting, I do it in present-tense, giving gratitude as if these events have already occurred, while daydreaming you could be thinking about the future or remembering the past, freely exploring any potential creative idea.

However I do think daydreaming can help you to manifest, if you’re thinking about something all day then you’re likely to bring that into your conscious life and strive to make it a reality too x

Often it feels like I live two different lives, and not necessarily that of two identities. Just two different states of mind. I find myself struggling with different things when awake and when asleep, my dreams manifesting entirely deeper and much more complicated problems than those I face when I’m awake, but still those that make complete and utter sense in relation to everything else. It’s strange and frightening but also thrilling all the same. Yes, I realize how messed up it sounds.

Steven isn’t the first victim of Blue Diamond’s grabby hands and he certainly isn’t the most severely wronged

If you’re looking for a good movie, I highly recommend “Before I Wake”. It’s about a young couple adopt an orphaned child whose dreams and nightmares manifest physically as he sleeps. The message seen in this movie really vibes with me. Behind every monster is something that’s pure, innocent and hurt.

The Universe knows you so deeply, so intimately. It knows who you need to experience more of life, and it knows who needs you. It knows when, where, how and why. That is not your business. Maintain your faith. Dare to believe in the unseen forces and they will not let you down. They don’t know how to let you down. They only know how to match your level of belief. 

Law of Attraction

I think this life philosophy called the Law of Attraction would be beneficial to many people, especially as we almost begin the new year. 

What is the Law of Attraction? 

It is essentially the “like attracts like” mentality where positive thoughts attract positive energy while negative thoughts attract negative energy. You can manifest your dreams. 

Do I believe in it?

I do believe in it. I think a lot of change starts from the mind, and everything else in life progresses from there. Especially now in my life, I have realized a lot of negativity has attracted more negativity especially with the people around me. Also I found myself never accomplishing goals because of the negativity surrounding them. For example, me wanting to lose weight never really happened because I kept telling myself I would never be as thin as that girl and tortured myself with the obsession to look a certain way. 

How does it work? 

You can start with repetitive positive thoughts or even visually through a dream board of all you want in life (dream career, partner, family, etc.) 

Some Tips to Manifestation 

  • Focus on your goal and be very specific- Write it down even if it makes you remember it. Just make sure you see it every single day. Ask yourself the reasons why you want these specific goals.  
  • Make a gratitute list- Appreciate all the things you have, and don’t focus on the things you don’t have because in the end there will always be something that someone has over you. So don’t worry to much about others and focus on you!
  • Make a worry list- Never worry about those stressors again. Write them down as a form of closure. 
  • Meditation- This may not be for everyone but it can definitely help soothe the mind and clear it for more positive thoughts. There are a bunch of apps and YouTube videos out there that can help guide medication sessions. 
  • Pretend you have what you want- This is actually mentioned in the second video (linked below). Pretend you have it and the universe will eventually let you have it. 

These are a few Law of Attraction videos that explain the philosophy very well. 

Here’s to a new year and a new, healthy mind.

I always think it’s interesting to study recurring images in people’s writing. My therapist once said that writing gives you a pretty good idea of a person’s inner world, because “We write what’s in our hearts.” Not literally, of course–I’m not trying to suggest that Stephen King wants to be a serial killer, lol. Some recurring images could be manifestations of dreams, wishes, fears, past events, etc. Here’s some images and themes that I notice pretty frequently in my writing (especially in DD fics):

  • Descriptions of nature
  • Heat and activity in the summer, cold and seclusion in the winter
  • Small towns and living off the land
  • Feelings of anxiety and dread
  • Close platonic relationships
  • Very little romance
  • Characters that are gruff, crabby, or blunt, but good people underneath
  • Rising tension and stress
  • Descriptions of food

What are some of the recurring images/themes in your own writing?
