Ever noticed that a lot of your friends LOVE, absolutely LOVE, sharing quotes on positivity? All those one-liner quotes from ‘anonymous’ authors with unrelated but quite colorful backgrounds like waterfalls, and Buddha images? Yes, it is quite a popular trend especially for ‘Live, Laugh, and Love’ quoting moms all over the world. Known as “Positive Manifesting”, it is an online trend of spiritual and zen living. According to the spiritual “Law of Attraction”, people who do positive manifesting believe that if they think positively and claim positive outcomes, then they would “attract” these outcomes into coming true.
Many bloggers and influencers encourage their audiences to do this. Social media has become a tool to create an image of a perfect life. Audiences see that the influencers and bloggers they follow earn so much, have nice cars, and live in beautiful homes. Not only that, they have amazing skin and perfect bodies. These influencers seem like happy, healthy, and wealthy individuals. Who wouldn’t be encouraged to manifest to become like the influencers you follow on social media?
