Love this post – and absolutely agree with you. I know from my own experience, as bellbird mentioned, that when the energy and excitement is there, things manifest pretty easily. If you give the universe even a teensy bit of doubt or negativity, if you're not really, completely SURE that you want something, or that you even deserve it, then it ain't gonna happen.
The objects/outcomes I have manifested in my life, I've known to the core of my being that I wanted them, and deserved them. Other intentions I hold at the moment – well, I may have some limiting beliefs that I need to work on...
Thanks again for your wise words.
