how many of you are believers in the universe, the law of attraction, manifestation, and the ideology of “ask, believe, receive?”

i was always a believer in trendy sayings like “what’s meant to be will be” and “positive vibes only” but yet every time shit went left, those roll-off-the-tongue, non-nonchalant sayings seemed to go with it.

it wasn’t until i found the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrnes that i really learned what the law of attraction truly meant, how my thoughts directly impact the way the universe (in my own personal world) works and the steps i need to take to receive the things i want.

fellow poet, photographer, and just all-around creative genius Maclin Bilski joined me on this episode to discuss this book as he had a similar life-altering experience after reading it.
