There are things you shouldn’t be manifesting.
Don’t get me wrong, I think manifesting is great; super useful and powerful.
Seeing an idea come to fruition and exist in reality is a great experience.
But manifesting isn’t always appropriate.
In fact, manifesting certain things makes you a sick-o.
The Tantrika archetype can explain.
During The Tantrika’s season of late spring, she helps you relate to flowers. She shows you how to use this botanical wisdom in your own life.
Here’s what I mean.
When a plant flowers, it’s an unabashed display, an advertisement that says I want.
What does the plant want? Pollinators.
It wants pollinators to help it fruit, then seed, then procreate. It wants legacy and world domination.
But first, pollinators.
And how does a plant get pollinators? It attracts them with flowers.
The Tantrika uses flowers to teach the art of attraction and how it’s different than manifesting.
This is crucial to understand.
Manifesting means creating. It means bringing something into physical form. It means birthing.
It’s very different from attracting.
Some things are birthed, like businesses, books, plays, art, and children.
But some things are attracted.
This isn’t just semantics. This is an important mindset, a crucial distinction, that will help you understand your actions and their results.
For example, the flower doesn’t manifest a hummingbird. It doesn’t create the bird, it attracts it.
And if you’re one of my students, I didn’t birth you, I attracted you. (and how offended would you be if I suggested I created you?! Weird, right?)
So, The Tantrika archetype wants you to stop manifesting everything.
She wants you to switch tactics and use a more appropriate strategy, attraction.
Take relationships. Do you want to manifest the perfect friend?
You know who did that? Dr Frankenstein. You know what he created? A monster. Yikes, right?
So don’t manifest people.
If you want a lover, friends, students, teachers, leaders, and helpers, attract them to you.
Be the flower. (Not the sick-o mad scientist who builds pals out of chunks of dead people. Dude. Gross.)
This is the season of desire. We’re desiring and wanting right along with the plants.
So, whose presence do you desire? Who do you want in your life?
Is getting who you want by forcing them, molding them, cajoling and shaping and bringing-them-forth working? No. No it isn’t. Or if it is, it will not last.
What if you used your energy to attract them instead?
The flower’s advice is: make yourself easy to find. Create a nice place to land. Respect who you’re attracting by making it win-win. Be consistent. Be patient.
