I have been trying to use both manifestation and prayer. So basically I ask the Universe/Divine/Great Spirit (whatever word you like) to help me manifest a job for in between my Uni break. I told the universe that I dont need to be rich but if I am going to continue to explore more spiritual experiences and books then I need money to do so.
I had just finished reading in a book about believing in your intent. So from what I can understand, I ask for something but then stop obsessing over it, instead be confident that the universe will provide it for me. Just as I am finished asking out loud for some abundance this cricket starts singing in the garage (its super shrill and loud) – immediately I am filled with the urge to go look up a cricket in my Animal Dreaming book, I said out loud – Okay I will go read the cricket page but I lay there wanting to finish my mediation.
The cricket then gets louder and I smile and say out loud, okay I will go read it now. I go get it from another room and was gobsmacked at what it meant. The cricket means Good Fortune – I felt this was the universe/divine speaking to me directly and saying – dont worry we will help you earn some money soon.
After that I went back to bed and thanked everyone I could think of – Universe, Divine, My Guides, Ascended Masters, Angels and Luminous Beings (I was full of joy and felt I should cover all bases LOL) Now I am accepting and have stopped worrying, the universe will provide for me because I believe my request will be answered 🙂
