I did exactly this. How I did it was that I was absolutely determined and knew that this was what I wanted but then I did let go as well. I guess its having absolute trust in the universe to bring you this. I have to say it didn't last long but then that wasn't the manifestation. The successful manifestation was to have a boyfriend.
A friend of mine also bought me a minature man model for a joke and we laughed our heads of at this. However, my inner self saw this as a sign and I knew he was on his way.
Have fun with it. Bashar says 'play with personal reality.' 'play with the clay.' It becomes more maleable, so big tip is to have as much fun as possible with this.
