I will start this by saying that there is no cap, no limit, and no boundaries in which we are capable of. Now I know a lot may disagree with what I have said and to them all I ask is read on.
Ok so let me explain for the beginners reading this trying to cast a spell for more money than he/she needs or is just plainly not getting the desired result of abundance in their life. Before you begin any magical practice you must begin to know yourself and you inner most true desires. For example, not everyone wants a lamborgini or bugati. If you dont have a car at all then you want transportation or the stability of having your own ride or maybe just the achievement. My point is what will make you happy. I mean what would really just put a smile on your face, not make you all out jump for joy (although this works better the happier you are when you receive the small things).
Think of it like this;
Right now lets say your on level 1
As human beings we seek growth everyday whether it be in wealth knowledge or spiritual. As a Mage (magician, wizard, witch, or whatever name you claim) we utilized the ability to manipulate energy to help us with this. Now if you are just beginning this will most likely be difficult since you are not completely sure of your gift yet. So I would recommend only reaching for level 2, that smile :). If you want millions start with a dollar. If you want complete happiness start with being happy with what you have now.
Now lets say you've reached level 2
Again as humans we need growth. You have a dollar now and your happy with what you have but it doesnt feel like enough anymore. As soon as you feel this it is time to move on and you must act fast. The longer you wait the more your happiness will fade. So since know you have the ability to go up one level, since its our natural instinct to grow, you will want to go up more than 1 level you can try 2 or maybe that one level up has increased your faith in your ability so much you can go up 5 levels closer to your goal. And with this your only limits are the ones you set for yourself.
I hope this helps and be sure not to bite off more than you can chew (greed) because the acknowledgement of failure hurts this process majorly.
As you predicted, I completely disagree. Putting a limit on how much you want to manifest is ridiculous. Not wanting absolute abundance is ridiculous. That being said a lot of people don't know what it is that they want out of life. Something like a dream board comes in handy. A little board of goals you want to manifest into your life through spells or what have you. Why would you manifest a dollar? I find them in my pockets without even putting out an intent.
We live in a world where we are discouraged to want abundance. Taught to believe that we for some reason don't deserve it. Yet look at those reality tv show stars. Do they deserve comfortable lifestyles more than you? Of course not.
sorry really this was meant for people that are having trouble starting off and then I see a lot of people saying oh "you were being too greedy" no maybe they just tried to go all out on their first go. This just demonstrates that there could be a process in order to get to your absolute goal. I dont get what you disagree with honestly since I said there are no limits or boundaries except those set yourself. maybe you just dont agree because like you said you already you didnt expect to before you even began to read it.
Now I understand this might be confusing as it revolves around my beliefs and not yours. But I believe as humans we are meant to grow. If we weren't we would not have the capability to learn. Now this post is just stating a way you can speed up your growth. Like I said this doesn't only go for money I just used money as an example (since thats the goal of alot of people). Happiness is a major one too and Ill use it in this example:
when something makes you happy, like a gift, does that same thing make you happy two years after receiving it? Usually not. (if it does your 1 in a million and I commend you) so we seek more
Now when I say dont bite off more than you can chew.
When you first heard of magick, you might have thought "hmmm this might help my life" or something like it. When in fact it surely can help your life. But since you have that doubt it can hinder your ability to "move mountains" with one spell. And faith and confidence dont just pop up over night they grow steadily. But just as everything else that grows, faith needs nourishment. And as you see the smaller spells come to life it makes it so much easier to manifest something larger.
