One of the things that I'm learning about intention-manifestation is that you manifest a reflection of yourself, including those parts of yourself of which you are not aware. So intention-manifestation seems to be great as a self-development tool.
Using Steve's ideas as well as those on HunaTrainer, I manifested $4 million this week (the culmination was this week, but quite frankly I didn't spend a lot of time or effort on it). While I can't spend a dime of it, it is a huge sum of money for a company that needs it and somehow I'm confident I'll be able to take part in enjoying a small part of it. It's a glimmer of what is possible, and has led me to uncover some fundamental assumptions I'm making about life and seem to want to cling to and is helping me challenge them.
Intention-manifestation happens. I think the real work is in tuning and refining the manifestation part by exploring our fundamental beliefs about life.
