I’ve spoken before on the concept of being specific when you are talking about abundance affirmations and meditations. It’s kind of a big deal and anyone working with the Law of Attraction shouldn’t take this lightly.
If you ask the Universe for let’s say “connecting with friends” the Universe won’t be able to tell which friends you are requesting. It will just somehow get the attention of everyone in your friend circle that may be open to receiving the call. This includes acquaintances and perhaps people who may have lost touch with due to a disagreement.
But is that really what you were going for? Maybe we need to work on our wording and phrasing so the Universe brings us exactly what we desire. However, first we must figure out what we want.
It’s always a good idea to do some introspective work. Ask yourself questions regarding the specifics of your goal. For instance, going back to the reconnecting with friends bit, maybe you want to have a timeline e.g.) within the next month. Maybe you want to reconnect with certain friends e.g.) give the Universe some names. Don’t leave this to assuming the Universe will just figure it out. That’s not really the right attitude.
I also find that if my request is too broad, then the outcome I am looking for never comes to fruition. But when I specify what I want in even a few details, I will inevitably receive it.
When I was in my early 20’s dabbling with some Wiccan spell rituals, I decided to cast a love spell under a full moon on Halloween night. It was perfect timing to accomplish anything. The veil is known to be the thinnest at that time, so I was ready to work!
I spent a couple days gathering all the ingredients I needed for my spell to work. This included the right herbs, the right tools like candles, a wand, a knife, offerings, a tablecloth, the correct crystals to enhance the energy, writing the incantation and then figuring out the order of how to do things. This was before the days of YouTube so I read a lot of books on the subject but didn’t really have a mentor.
My altar was set, I invoked the cardinal directions, cast my circle with a blade, read aloud my spell and set my intention to attract the perfect boyfriend. I gave a few specifics (I wanted someone tall, kind, loving to animals, and financially stable). I thanked the spirits, gods and goddesses, closed the circle and grounded myself.
It was pretty powerful stuff I was dabbling with! In fact, I refuse to even do this kind of work anymore unless it’s something serious that I feel I need assistance with. I didn’t even know how this all worked or if I would even end up achieving anything. At that time, I’d been single for a long time and I just wanted to find someone. The risk was that it could have backfired as well with the Law of Three (any energy good or bad that you send out into the Universe comes back to you threefold).
I did end up meeting a man with all these qualities. However, we had a hard time communicating. He was not as book smart as I would have liked. I found out that he was cheating on me. There were things lacking in the relationship that were huge red flags.
From that experience I learned a lot. Still, I reflect back to what happened and find new things I didn’t know before. Most importantly, I learned that being as specific as I was, the Universe gave me exactly what I asked for.
Abundance manifestation is not easy and there’s no formula to it. You must work at it and find your own way. Our thoughts and intentions are very powerful. I caution you though: use this at your own risk. However, be prepared to reap the rewards if you work hard and learn to do it right.
Have you done any abundance or manifestation work that didn’t go as planned? Tell me what happened if you are open to sharing!
