I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble
But I believe were all equal and all capable of the same things
Some of us may have started with easier paths *cough*cough* but we are all capable of the same thing..
As I understand it "the shift" has already happened and that energy is just being integrated into our lives faster and faster.. more and more
so the idea is all these things will turn on..
When you use the word "manipulation" that is a "EGO" word for the "EGO" seeks to manipulate where as the more natural "true you" is very more heart centered, more inward focused.. much more natural and ease..
I suggest to you "manipulation" is not required trust in yourself is the best thing you can do.. if you want to manipulate the system as it were.. then use LOA positive process to selectively bring into your existence what you think about.. preferably.. what excites you makes you joyful and happy
