I’ve never met someone who came right out and said so; or rather, I’ve never DATED someone who believed so. And the more he explained his position to me, the quieter and more pensive I became…
The beauty and the challenge in writing about manifesting what you need and want is that there is an overwhelming amount of information on this topic. Everywhere I turn these days I am brought face to face with the buzzwords of Universal Laws, co-creation, vibrational frequency, intention, abundance, prosperity, gratitude and appreciation.

When the tragic news of Amy Winehouse’s death was announced, her family, friends, fellow artists, and fans were all devastated. Although the cause of her death has not officially been confirmed, most assume she lost her life as a result of her tumultuous history with drugs and alcohol.

At the age of seven, I made a choice. I decided that the only life I wanted was one where I was living fully and experiencing it. Watching from the sidelines isn't enough for me. It's not to say there weren't times in my life where I ended up benching myself. That's where I put myself during the years I was stuck in my grief. But it was uncomfortable, painful and so foreign to me.

This is the second article in the series of five examining the emotions. In the first article it was discussed when sadness is repressed in turns into chronic depression. Any chronic condition is unnatural. We need to look at our first feelings. The core emotions of grief/sadness, anger, love, envy, and fear are being examined in this series.
