I’m proposing a new word for the English language:
Manifrustration (man·i·frus·tra·tion ; pronunciation: \ˌma-nə-frəs-ˈtrā-shən\) Noun.
1) The unhappiness associated with not getting what you want after attempting to influence the universe with your thoughts
2) The displeasure that occurs when the manifestation “master” says you haven’t gotten what you want because there’s something wrong with you
2a) The added confusion when this alleged imperfection is some unprovable or vague theory, such as: the level of your intention or “vibration”; unconscious “resistance”; or the type and/or number of certain thoughts that spontaneously arise in your mind
3) The depression that follows the times when, if you do somehow manage to get what you want, you find that you’re not actually any happier
4) The sadness arising when, after not getting what you want through the use of a particular manifestation technique, you go into debt to take another manifestation course that promises better results… but only delivers one or more of the 3 states listed above
I realize that in addition to being a new word, this could be a medical/psychological condition listed in the DSM-IV. Of course the problem with making Manifrustration a condition is that it would lead to all manner of useless treatments which would further compound the problem.
