Some say that by keeping your mind full with what you want – the universe will provide it to you (coincidently I write this at Christmas and this is what my parents told me about St Nicolaus). Many automatically do this already but now if nothing happens or even worse, you get Leukemia and a heart attack – you can only blame yourself that you have not wished the right things or you did not visualize them in the proper way.
