Hello - newbie browsing here....as you are mentioning 'manifesting' and 'strategy' I thought I would also direct you to an interesting resource you may not know about:
It is a mix of things like Astrology/I ching/ The Kabbalah and the chakra systems. As I understand it all humans fall into 4 types (with 1 sub-set) and altho there is all this propaganda out there for us all to be Manifestors HD strangely discovered that only 8% of the population ARE true Manifestors.....each type has a strategy. If you are trying to live a Manifestor strategy and you are a Generator or a Projector you will be frustrated or bitter....anyway you can check it out if you google 'Human Design'......there is loads of free info out there !
Hope this helps !
