After you've put your request out there, start watching for universal signs that your order was received.
A coincidence (coincedence) is a great indication that you have been heard.
You will notice certain synchronicities occur, usually within a few days. For instance if you have requested money, you may start to find extra money on the ground.
Watch for these 'Winks from the Universe' as acknowledgement that your request was delivered. These occur rather quickly and then there may be a lull until your intention manifests.
Do not despair. Take heart in knowing that your message was delivered. If you give up now, you will kill the intention. And it is most likely just around the corner!
And it will be yours.
Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
