You can check it for yourself on my blog. I do not merely record successful manifestations, as and when they occur. Instead:
1. I record my manifestations and goals;
2. I record the personal actions that I take (if any)
3. I record subsequent events in my life, like an ordinary diary process, as they occur.
By comparing the manifestations, and then the subsequent events, the success rate can be determined. And if you bothered to check, you will probably begin to see that my success rate is extremely high, and often not attributed to my personal actions, nor to wishful thinking. Example 2 17 December 2006
. On my blog, I record my new idea that I shall regularly provide learning experiences for my little kids. 21 December 2006
. On my blog, I record that I used a certain IM technique to manifest the intention that my kids shall be extremely bright. 25 December 2006
. On my blog, I record that I've selected some books that I want to read with my little kids. But I still haven't gotten round to reading to them yet. 20 January 2007
. I record that I read to them - some bedtime stories. 27 January 2007
. I record my surprise that my little girl (not yet 2.5 years old) suddenly seems to be able to read, at a standard well above what's supposed to be normal for her age. I actually attributed it to her playschool, not to IM, nor to myself - I wrote: "They must be doing something right at my little girl's playschool." 8 Februrary 2007
. Out of the blue, the principal suddenly calls up and says that she wants to move my little girl into a class for older kids. They have observed that she has suddenly become very bright and they don't think it's appropriate for her to stay in the class with kids of the same age.
Note that it was only 1.5 months (between 21 Dec and 8 Feb) between the date on which I manifested the intention, and the date on which the principal called up, saying that the little girl must be moved to a class for older kids.
