Hi everyone,

I'd like to share my story to see if you guys can help me solve my problem:

I've been out of my parents' house for 8 years studying and working. Now that I finished my studies, due to the economic circumstances I have had to return to my parents' house temporarily until I find a job or any source of income. During these 8 years I have matured and opened my mind. Now I consider myself a very dynamic, open-minded and optimistic person.

However, in my house is all different. My parents are middle class and have primary education. They're only tolerant of opinions they agree with and very close-minded. My sister is 17, she's not very good at school and only cares about going out and having fun. We're constantly arguing and they get angry for any little thing. In short, I'm living in an environment completely opposite to my perspective of life. The first question I have is: How could I have attracted this situation to my experience?.

On the other hand, my parents' house is in a small town with few job opportunities for qualified people and away from large cities. In order to find a job and income out there, my only resource is the Internet. I want to get out of this situation because every day I feel more trapped and stuck.

At this point of my life, my greatest desire is to achieve an income stream or a job that allows me to leave this place and settle in another city. When I mean "income stream" I'm referring to abundance. I wouldn't like to get out of a bad situation to get into another. I love my family, but I can't live with them, I need to be independent and it's taking longer than expected.

I know that in order to manifest something, I must first set a specific goal, visualize it and then let it go. But how I can let it go if EVERYTHING around me is exactly what I don't want?. Most of my friends live out of town, and there's not much to do here so my mind is always racing.

How can I manifest what I want given my cirumstances?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

P.S. Sorry I commit any mistakes, English is not my first language.

I have learned that you don't have to know what you want, to be happy. You can decide to be happy and that everything is great and will turn out great and that you will get wonderful opportunity. I started reading this last night. It is very insightful and explains how to apply what I am saying. It reminded me of many things I had forgotten.

I have paired the positive affirmations that we us to tell us that we are going to have a wonderful day or that we attract all good things in life, with my Two Hands Touching. So you say your affirmation outloud, then put the palms of your hands together and close your eyes. Quietly, in your mind, ask yourself, "What do my hands feel like?" Then, without naming the feelings, feel the answer in your hands. Don't try to think or not think, just feel your hands. Do this until you feel a sense of peace and longer if you want.

Hi Rubns, You might be in prison as you say but your mind is free. It is this mind that you have to use to get out of a situation you don't like. Use your imagination and see and feel yourself where you want to be and not where you are. If you find this difficult then try the following and I can assure you your life will change for the better.

Be gratefull and keep a grateful journal. Yes you do have things to be grateful for even though you think you don't. You have a roof over your head and even though the environment might not be to your liking you have a bed to sleep nights. That is something to be grateful for. You have a meal to eat and that is another thing to be grateful for. Instead of seing all that is wrong rather see all that is right and once you start you will find lots of things that are right.

Accept others the way they are. That is the way they are so just accept them and dont judge them. Try not to be resentful for where would you be at this moment in time if you didnt have this place to go to. Maybe out in the streets. Count your blessings and your view on life will change.

See beauty in your surroundings. Nature is the most beautiful place so get joy out of beauty like the sunshine for instance or the rain or the trees or everything you come into contact with. Man made beauty is just as good to apreciate so admire the art and creations like jewelry, architecture and so on. Breathe in and taste, touch, see, hear, smell and sense the beauty of life and soon you will have what you want.

Your going to have to stop crying about your circumstances and the people in your life. They are not the reason for you problems. Start to affirm that which you want and consider anything else temporary.

what if you are you,
responsible for decisions made
reflecting if adjustments needed
adapting and trying again

yes, but what is that driving vision
alas but for you to decide then
willing it to happen,
so what is it that you resign to see
