Is Manifesting a Sin?

I think it's unfortunate that some people will never live out their desires during this lifetime because their mindsets are so fixed that they hold themselves back from being open, aware, and receiving the full abundance that is laid out for them, but are not in alignment with.

What is Manifesting?

Manifestation methods such as journaling is WRITING your desires so you can give life to the visualization that is required by you to SEE your dreams within your mind until they become your reality.
