Not always as excepted
I’m a grad student in liberal arts, and my dream was always since my teens to own a coffee shop, but for all business, I needed money.
After reading and watching The Secret I made a vision board, grateful-list, and visualized every morning and every night my dream home and all good things-to-come, and even printed a cheque with the sum of money I wanted. The next day I went to buy a lottery ticket (which i never do), and asked the universe to win it. I thought I knew better than the universe about how to manifest money 🙂 Yeah, I didn’t win. I was a bit devastated, like the kid when the bike is sold, but then I said that all good things are coming to me, and there must be better ways of gaining money, so I just let it be.
The next day two miracles happened: I got the payed internship I had hoped for on a different continent (and a whole new field of work, which I never thought of, but seems fitting!), and I got a call from an employer about the part time hostess job I’d applied for, and I’m starting in a week!
So remember: you only have to ask, and then receive, the universe knows the “how-to’s”
