Im really confused on what you mean by manifesting my needs. When you say go manifest my need for say, a car, what are you talking about? Going out and buying a car, hoping a stranger will give it to you, or actually deluding yourself into thinking it will appear out of nothing?
I simply think I want a car and then someone actually just gave me a car (actually I paid $30 for it to just make it a legal thing... I choose to give the $30 I didnt have too). It was a beautiful blue classic holden in mint condition and had been all done up. The person who gave it to me had schizophrenia and thought he was going blind.. so he just gave his car away (his bad sight issue went away later but the car was already mine then). There was no way I would of got this car without putting out my thought I was some how going to receive one. (often there will be very strange situations behind me getting something which I try to manifest something for myself.. hence why I dont like to do it often. sometimes bad things have happened to bring the object I wanted to me).
It usually takes 3 days for the object Im trying to manifest to come to me (I used to over do the thoughts and used to end up on the third day often being given 2 of the object I'd wanted eg I got given 2 tvs .. when I was unemployed and needed a job and used manifestation to try to get one .. I got given 2 different jobs within 48 hrs of each other so then had to choose which one to knock back and which to take..
sorry if I seem a little critical but I dont really make any sense out of what you are saying, a bunch of people realised you had no money and shouted you a room and you think you have some sort of mental power?
The "strangers' had no idea I had no money.. I wasnt going around telling strangers about my money situation.. that to me would be like begging or trying to get someone to feel sorry for you to get something. I didnt do that. I was taking care to hide my situation from people as I didnt want people to know and I was SURE things would work out how they were supposed to be. I wasnt concerned. It makes me think of the LD stuff..set the intent and then let it go, trust it will happen. (I think this frees up the energy of the intent)
eg I got given rooms as people felt it was a waste that these rooms were going to be empty and on finding out I hadnt booked one yet anywhere, just asked me I wanted a room eg I chatted to the stranger at the airport.. just general friendly convo.. hi where are you from? etc.. when he asked me what I was doing in that state and where I was from.. I told him I'd come to that state and was doing a course the next day. He goes.. "where are you staying? if we are going same direction you may as well jump into my taxi.. etc and I'll help you carry your stuff" etc etc and I go "i dont know yet where Im going to stay, Im about to sort that out" he just goes.. you can have my room as it will save you having to get one. (most people who gave me stuff didnt have any idea at all that I had no money, there was only one person found out I didnt have any money).
The only time I got anything during that time from someone who knew I didnt have any money was the 3 DVDs I wanted.. travelling to the course from so far, she wanted me to have them as also due to her spiritual beliefs it was her good deed of the day (they were spiritual DVDs).. interestingly.. I didnt even tell her I wanted them thou really really did.
Its hard for me to think that event after event going like this during those fews days were just coincidence!! It would be one heck of a coincidence to get everything I wanted for 3 days free.
One other thing I want to point out is, is it just us regular folk who live in developed countries who have this mental power to do whatever it is you are suggesting, or can people who are born crippled, mentally ill, or in severe poverty have this ability as well?
I personally believe ANYONE can do this.. all it takes is faith in manifestation and also the "knowing" you are abundant and feeling so at the time so one can draw things to one .. and I'd like to point out I are usually in poverty and hence why I was travelling without money in the first place. (I dont believe that money is important.. and seem to usually get my needs met some how and that is all which matters to me).
Those born crippled.. usually has some karmic reason or a reason why they choose to come into this world like that, they are supposed to be like that, they have something to learn via it or something to teach another via it. (I dont believe people can manifest stuff well or in a good way if their karma isnt balanced right). I believe there are various spiritual laws which come into things and the law of manifestation doesnt necessarily over ride the others (but then if someone has bad karma they can change that too via their deeds).
Unfortunately the mentally ill I'd think would have some issues with "postive" manifestation.. due to imbalances of energy bodies and auric leaks and tears. They often are "projecting" energy all over the place without a good focus on positive needs... they often create too many "thought forms"at once.. not enough clarity and it is the thought forms we've created subconciously we feed with energy when we are drawing an object or situation towards us till it manifests. (one can actually feel the build up of energy the closer eg in time...the object gets)
its ok if you dont believe this.. I dont care if people do or not. Im simply answering the question asked to me. Yogis are taught how to consciously do these things. There are some things which can be done to make this stuff stronger (Ive been fortunate to have some good teachers).
