haha, this is gonna sound weird, but after some months of self work I've discovered the same exact thing you're presenting here. I'm now manipulating my own reality, to get what I really want/need. And it's working, for sure.
I'm not going to post my "needs" here, anyway, you speak with the truth. Or at least with the same truth I'm living with.
Reading your post is like reading my own journal, really.

Hi Sylvie, ive recently started asking myself what do i need, i am healthy, so are my kids, i dont have very much money, but am considerably richer than 4/5ths of the planet. I recently came to the conclusion that the only thing i would really like at the moment is to spend less precious time on worrying about finances when i could be doing something more interesting with my thoughts. So i decided, 'lets puts my trust in something' ( i do believe in a higher power). So i purposely decided to not dwell or worry about my financial situation because i realised that that would not be of any help. Anyway in the last six months, ON EVERY OCCASION something has turned up to get me out of my prediciment sometimes just by the skin of my teeth, and its always just enough to get me out of bother (we not talking thousands or millions on the lottery). I guess ive just put my trust in the hands of something bigger, and i tell you, someone or something seems to be looking after me. (famous last words!!! ive said that with my fingers crossed!!!)

I hear what you are saying and know where you are coming from.
My only problem is that I do not like to use the word manifestation as it reminds me of the occult.
It is hard to have your dreams come true if you don't put you mind energy to work. The need should stay in what I call the front part of your mind. Visit the wish everyday and never stop completely thinking of
If I need something I research the thing I need. I talk about it and plan for it to happen even though I may not have the funds available to get it.
I think about how I will handle the needed thing when I get it.
I need it. I think it. I want it. I will get it. That's what I do and it works.
May not get it when I want it but will when the time is right.

To me, 'manifestation' is just a word. Replace it with any other word that has the same connotation, and the meaning is the same. IMO, manifestation could be correlative with the Biblical adage that 'faith without works is dead'. Basically, pray or meditate about the desire, which puts the thought out into the Universe (or toward God), and then follow it up with some personal action. This is my interpretation of the OP's concept of manifestation. Please correct me if I'm wrong, OP. Great thread, BTW.
