Is there a method that you've tried and have found successful? I've read so much about it and it seems likes there's so many ways to practice that it's kind of overwhelming.
Several years ago, I tried the Bengston healing method, and found that several of my "positive ego images" used in the cycling manifested. I don't remember what all of them were now, but one of them was a significant pay raise, which I got shortly thereafter when out of the blue I was offered a good job. A few years later, I was recalling this and thinking about the nature of reality and the power of the will when I had a sort of burst of faith in the ability to manifest our desires. Again I imagined some images as I had done with the Bengston healing method including a pay raise. About 3 weeks later, I got a significant pay raise, doubled vacation, and a nice company vehicle, and shortly after that a Son. Some of the other positive ego images didn't pan out and some seem like a tortured inversion.
Recently through my musings here, I've become convinced that certain forms of asceticism, celibacy, fasting, etc., might sort of energize the unconscious to work for you. By creating a hunger, a constant frustration of desire, perhaps we create a power generator that can transmute that energy of the will into a creative act in the physical world. So I'm looking into that more...
