In this week’s episode of the podcast, Cayly and I talk about manifesting — a word we see being tossed around a lot in the self-help and personal development arena — often to the detriment of those who fall prey to the hype. We discuss the ways that our attempts to manifest can go wrong and leave us feeling less content in the end. We also call bullshit on The Secret (which is something Cayly did previously in this article she wrote a few months back), talk about how to manifest effectively, and discuss what that looks like in our own lives.
