Instant Gratification... I want it now with no effort!

Today, I was working out in the gym when I saw this commercial on the television saying "New University Study, No Diet Needed, No Work Out Needed, No Surgery... Lose weight now" and I couldn´t help but think what type of society we live in these days. Are we just so off that we think we can achieve our goals with 0 effort?  Last month, I was reading the book by Rosetta Former "Las Reinas son del Planeta que se les da la gana" (The Queens are from the planet they want) and in that book, she was mentioning something similar in regards to the book "The Secret" and how people thought that just by imagining something it would happen. She disagreed with this concept and thought that we co-create our reality with the energies provided by the universe. We can vision and plan, but we also need to put the energy to manifest our dreams. There is no magic pill to make our dreams come true, they come with helping the universe manifest those things we want in our lives.

Here I was, working out and sweating while seeing a commercial that promised that I could achieve the same result without having to make that effort. Is this too good to be true? Do we live in a society that wants instant gratification and want to get things with no effort? It´s like expecting to get a new job but not updating your resume. Buying a house but not saving money to get there. Do people really think that they just want something and it will manifest without any effort?

I am not saying that I don´t believe in the power of the Laws of Attraction but I do think we still need to do our part to help the Universe provide us with those things we need and want. It´s like magick, you create a spell, you cast it, then you let it go but in the meantime you do the things that will help you attain the end goal. For example, if you want to get a new job, you cast the spell and then you update the resume and apply to different positions or ads you see so you can help the Universe bring you your perfect job. 

There is no such a thing about getting something without putting some energy on manifesting it, whether it is visioning it, affirming it, planning it, it takes some energy on our parts to achieve our dreams... there is no instant gratification when it comes to manifest the life you are meant to live. 

Many blessings,
