Remember that there is a difference between sending out a hope that something you'd like to happen will happen and putting in the appropriate effort or planning to ensure that something actually will happen. If you don't believe that something will happen, perhaps you're not willing to plan and work for it. You need a balance of both hope (to inspire) and effort (to achieve) for an outcome to be realized.
Some personal questions that you don't have to answer on this site but to think about. Is your house paid off? If you have children, are all of their college tuitions completely paid for? Are you still working at a job? If so, is that because you'd rather be working there than on a long vacation to your favorite places? Are you driving a brand new (fill in the name of your favorite car here)? Are all your hopes, dreams, and wishes coming true?
When we hear words like manifestation, attraction and creation, we often associate them with getting. But the real power of the law of attraction is found when we shift our attention from getting to giving. Generosity, love and service are not afterthoughts — things you think you’ll have time, money and energy for once you get what you want. The energy of compassion is what drives a truly co-creative engagement with the Universe. My book teaches you a method of manifestation that integrates the element of giving from the very beginning.
Faith is a feeling and vibration. You cannot experience faith without the feeling of faith. When you really have faith about something, you must feel it. A person with a higher vibration will create their desires easier, faster and more effectively than someone who is experiencing a lower vibration. Our vibrations go up and down with our moods throughout the day. That is why it is important to be conscious of how we are feeling and keep choosing to feel positive. If you did nothing else but ask yourself, How do I feel right now? , and keep bringing yourself back into feeling good, everything else would fall into place.
Be sure about what you want and when you do decide please don't doubt yourself. Remember that you're sending a request to the Universe which is created by thoughts and therefore responds to thoughts. Know exactly what it is that you want. If you're not clear/sure, the Universe will get an unclear frequency and will send you unwanted results. So be sure it is something you have strong enthusiasm for.
Everything is energy. And when it comes to manifesting your desires, it’s important to remember that your reality is being sculpted on a moment by moment basis by your predominant energy and vibration. You can meditate, declutter your home, make sweet love, sing, pray, cook or laugh until you nearly want to pee your pants – these are all excellent ways to amp up your frequency so the Universe can deliver your goodies.
