Visualization leads to manifestation, although how this manifests may not be in the way we visualize it, so it’s best to avoid becoming attached with a how. Bt exercising imagination regularly, we will develop a knowledge of our ideal state. Wealth means many things and may be considered what others value in/from us. Difficulty and obstacle provide us with an opportunity to apply our knowledge of cause & effect to transcend a reaction and create a response.

We have this opportunity to co-create, because we are spiritual beings.

This is the secret of securing harmonious conditions. Keen analytical observation develops the qualities of thought that support Constructive thought. If we direct our attention to thoughts (causes) that do not support our ideal state, we will manifest undesired conditions.
