When sending out certain energy into the universe you should try to be not too specific, or general. If you are too specific your desire will take more energy, and will take longer to manifest. If you are too general your desire made manifest in ways you do not want, and you’re not expecting. What you need to do is find a good balance.
This would be like, if you did a spell in order to get money.
If you were being too specific it would look like something like this: I want exactly $1,000, I want it to be from the lottery, and I want it on Monday.
This will take a very long time to manifest, because of how specific it is. The enegy will always get the job done, but it will always take the easiest way out. Needing you to use a lot more energy, and for the manifestation to take more time.
If you were being too general it would look like something like this: bring money to me.
This will probably take not that much energy, but could bring you pretty much anything that has to do with money. This could manifest as simply asyou finding money on the ground, to you even getting more hours at work, but you just never know, because it’s so general. You never know how it may manifest.
