I guess I find it kind of confusing. Also I read conversations with god :P. The advice it gives I have problems following (the manifesting stuff asks you to have the certainty that Jesus did...which is extremely difficult to achieve, and I can't force myself to) and I need clarity on quite a few points besides that.
I remember one passage that said if you repeat a thought, or a word, often enough it becomes manifested in your reality. That was echoed by Abraham Hicks. I really really liked that passage...
But every time I set myself up to repeat something 1000 times for an hour straight it fails. Maybe I could try it for intervals, but then it just feels weak. Like how long do I repeat it...and then I have doubts as to whether it'll work or not based on some other thoughts I may not be consciously aware of. So I thought maybe someone else can do it!
Well I'll keep hoping/trying. Thanks everyone for the input!
AngelPsychic and The One were both spot on when they said you just have to listen. He communicates in a bunch of ways and sometimes I didn't even realize what was going on until I looked back and said, "Wow! Thank You for not letting xyz happen like I wanted!" (I'm talking about surrender)
Now in terms of "ask and it shall be given". Keep asking and strive to be your best possible self. He might be talking to you now, just not the way you
expect. Talk all the time, when you can and above all move
from the best part of yourself. When he spoke to me I had hit rock bottom and was ANGRY that I had done everything, sought and asked and knocked and the door seemingly wasn't opened. But that doesn't necessarily have to be the case with you. God moves in mysterious ways. But pay attention to your everyday life. The most seemingly mundane often have the most extraordinary of answers.
All the best rad.
