Positive thinking- warning ⚠️

A common complaint I hear from new clients is ” ok, I’ve read The Secret” or something similar. I’m manifesting this, or that, goal(s)/dreams daily. I’m doing the affirmations, nothing has changed, what is going wrong?” A few things to consider. -The spiritual path, in my experience, isn’t easy, prepare to get your arse kicked.…
