This is my belief exactly.
I, for one, am not crazy about generic affirmations. In The Secret, Jack Canfield was VERY specific about the amount of money he wanted to make.
I have mixed feelings about the HOW of getting it. Colm says that focusing on Jane Smith is "the How"....but what if she's the Love Partner that you want.....???
Back to Jack Canfield again....the HOW popped into his head while showering one day (the 400,000 books and the idea about the National Enquirer). He did have to act on the HOW. It is essential that we don't skip this step. Like Andrew mentioned...it's not going to be dropped into our lap. You actually have to do something a lot of the time. (I will agree there are exceptions to do....like unexpected $ in the mail etc.)
The Law of the Harvest is also a Universal Law...and it states that you reap what you sow. If you sow nothing...you will reap nothing.
let's not forget that action is required. I've never met a lazy rich man...have you?
Now, for what I do as far as specifics...... I go for specifics in minute detail, followed by the action that I see as my shortest path to get what I want. But my heart and my mind are very open to other possibilities. Sometimes when I'm focusing on my "action" plan ....or THE HOW!...I have new ideas that pop into my mind. I take this as a sign from the Universe( or God) that there are other alternatives that I should consider. I don't feel that specifics limit me in any way.
But for me....being vague about what I want have never served me. I just get really vague results...(or nothing). I ask for abundance in my manifestations....and then I follow it up with what abundnace means to me. hmmmmmm...today it means debt free and $1.5 million in assets....next year, I'm sure it will be different.
So my point is....abundance is relative!
I will concede that when I'm not sure what I want, I start my affirmations and intentions out more vaguely...and my mind/brain pretty soon, lets me know that my wheels are spinning. Within a short time, I force myself to get really clear on what I mean by "abundance" and so it evolves.
my 2 cents (hmmmmmm 25 cents???)
