Point blank, I KNOW money doesn't just come from nowhere (other than the occasional "found money", which never seem to amount to more than $10). At least, money does not come out of nowhere not for me. I'm sure that for other people it does, because I've seen it happen to them. I don't doubt that it is entirely possible as a concept. As a reality, as MY reality... well, let's just say I don't have a good relationship with money.
And in this case, what you are describing as "knowing" is a kind of belief. Because you don't REALLY know, not in any kind of factual way. In my case, I don't know in any sort of experiential way, either (i.e., I've always had issues with money, all of my life). My mind/psyche is not of a shape that can be bent to blind faith, and this has always been the case. If I can know experientially (even very weird and esoteric things), then that's okay, but just telling myself "this will now happen" doesn't work, at least when it comes to money (it works in other areas, though).
I have tried all manner of techniques to force myself to "know/believe" that money CAN come to ME (not just other people) from anywhere and everywhere. NOTHING has ever worked to convince me. This is not a matter of "faith" (I can and have manifested all kinds of stuff, including things that other people may find really difficult, like a fantastic life partner). This is not a matter of knowledge (trust me, I have accumulated more knowledge on the topic of intentional manifestation than any sensible person would want or need).
Your approach may work well for you, and I have no doubt that it does. Maybe it works perfectly for the whole of the rest of humanity, with the exception of Moonrambler and myself, I guess, but your approach of just decding and knowing (i.e., blind faith) is not useful for me when it comes to manifesting money.
