In order to manifest something, you need to have a desire first. Universe listens to what you have in the heart, not in your mind.
Deepest desires are sown deep within the heart. Our mind only forces things to happen that we think would be best for us. And this we do by fantasizing or making up our dream worlds.
However only the soul knows what it wishes for and it appears as ‘Desire’ in our heart. This desire is heard by the universe when the heart pulsates with life and sends out frequency frequently… Only then the heart’s desire is manifested.
In order to realise what your soul truly desires you need to shut down the mental chatter, go silent and listen. Meditate! Spend time in solitude and distance yourself from socializing.
