Thoughts create reality and that extends further than manifestation. It is what the world offers you. For example, if you are mistrustful of people the universe will bring you people you can’t trust. If you think that people are dishonest and selfish you will find yourself surrounded by dishonest and selfish people. One thought can begin this merry go round and after a while, this is just how life is. No, this is how your life is because you are attracting this unconsciously.
Focus on the opposites no matter what you see and your reality will begin to change. Don’t let past experiences make you cynical and skeptical...after all, they were just a part of your creation.
