I highly, highly suggest that you read and contemplate more. Most of your questions are answered in many substantial ways already. You're approaching this with, I believe, more rote and ritual than it should be.
I can't spoonfeed you your manifestation. I'm sure if I really felt like it, I could, but then it'll be /my manifestation/, not yours. And you'll learn nothing yourself. So this is still my advice to you: focus on manifesting smaller, easier goals first. Build your faith and your strength, then move on to more difficult goals.
If you wanted to lift a large rock, would you go and try doing that right now, or would you rather work out and develop your muscles first?
1. regarding reading more, i have read all of steve's articles on this site, and have begun doing some researching online on the topic. is there anything specific that you could recommend?
2. regarding manifesting smaller things first: the reason i feel i am ready for this, and concomitantly, the reason why the serendipity of such a discovery was so very intriguing to me was because i have manifested things in the past without knowing what was occurring. allow me to explain:
i am a man of faith but am rather inconsistent in my worship. i have periods where i pray constantly and periods where i do not pray at all. i have found that in these latter stages, i am completely dead with no creative energy. conversely though, during the periods when i am praying, i have found answers to my problems presenting themselves to me almost miraculously. i have wondered about this alot over the years and how it exactly works. during high school, i cured myself of a severe form of acne in a matter of 2 months using this method. when i heard the audiobook yesterday and then read up on intention manifestation, it suddenly hit me like a lightning bolt, affirming the reality of what i had done so many times in my life.
that's when i began to ponder what exactly is the extent of this power/method. i have cured myself of acne, completely changed my lifestyle and fatigue problems, along with a numerous host of PERSONAL issues. it made perfect sense to me that we can control what occurs with ourselves through belief. but can we impact something regarding someone else?
the issue with the girl is one that has been bothering me and so i wondered if it would be possible to utilize this method in this particular situation.
and thus my query.
