| | Do you count your chickens before they are hatched?
So let's say (for fun) you on a whim decide to manifest a large sum of money. You don't care how much just that it's large. More than just a thousand. Do you spend that money before its been manifested? Sure you don't know how much it's going to be so maybe you wouldn't buy a car, but would you buy that new fancy 60" flatscreen tv?
On the one hand a "reasonable" person might say it's foolish to count your chickens before they are hatched. But on the other hand, isn't spending the money proof of your confidence that the money will come in? Is the act of spending some of the money helpful in your I-M methodology? Could this actually be a tool, an especially fun tool, in your LoA arsenal?
