I just don't like it. Or rather I feel like the word has been reappropriated by some people in the new age movement so that they can make wild promises alluding to financial wealth (which, lets face it, is what a lot of people practising manifestation are ultimately looking for regardless of whether that is good or bad). I have read so many books where they talk about "abundance" in which they allude to money but can backtrack when their theories don't work by claiming that by abundance they meant something more vague - a generalised wellbeing (which I believe can be achieved without any mystical theories or arcane laws). I guess there are just words that some people like and others don't. Each to their own eh? I am glad you got your operation, wishing you well.
I guess I just like things to be clear cut. I'm obviously not opposed to people manifesting feeling good about themselves or anything like that I just believe that if people want to manifest money, even if it for "base" desires, then that should work too, if they follow the laws of manifestation/LoA correctly, which if it is an objective, neutral law it should.
