Welcome to week four of living an intentional life. You may have heard the word ‘manifesting’ a lot in popular psychology recently, and have possibly dismissed it as a pseudoscience that states if you want something you only have to think positive thoughts and it will appear. However, stay open to it — manifesting is a powerful tool that is worthy of your attention.
