Manifesting should not be work. It should be something that happens naturally when first you will it, then you follow through as needed. No, you don’t just express your desire to the universe and start running around to find it fulfilled. It’s quieter than that. I find that if I manifest and turn it over to God, it works out.
Example: My roof is leaking. The estimates I could gather for a new roof ranged from $4,000-$10,000.
I couldn’t afford that. I didn’t even know who to call. So, I manifested.
Later, I had to stop by the nursing home for what became my last therapy session. The PT suggested that I should see if it’s covered by my insurance. My deductible is $1000, so that still concerned me, but I had them send out someone to estimate. He was from a good, honest company.
An hour later, the person told me it wasn’t enough for a claim and it would be less than $1000 to fix it.
I knew it would still be a lot of money, but I felt much better. The company said they would even do payment plans!
However, when the estimate came back, it was just under $1200.
I hesitated; I felt the need to hesitate. My mom thought I should get a second estimate. I didn’t know who to call, so I put it out on Facebook.
I received several good answers, including one from my stepson who offered to do the job at cost. (Thankfully, we’ve always gotten along well.) This seems like the right opportunity, and now I’m waiting to see if it works out.
I feel confident that whatever happens will be fine and I no longer need to worry about the money.
Diets don’t work? I disagree.
