depends on what type of situation. mostly what i do is simply keep thinking about the outcome you desire over and over again in your mind so it will manifest...like, i want this job i applied for, and i keep thinking "I AM the newest member of the team at....."
and i have already won favor with the hiring manager :D
so...there are certain herbs and stones you can use to make an amulet to help you attract the right outcome. and one thing that is good to know: I AM (insert desired outcome here) are the two most powerful manifestation words you can use. don't use I AM NOT because the universe doesnt know whether what you want is good or bad, it can only discern what you think about the most, so it assumes that is what you want.
these affirmations work wonders!! :)
hope i helped. also, i know a little bit about other things besides energy and magick so if you need any help at all just let me know.
