The Universe and your spirit guides often choose to send you abundance through channels that are NOT financial.
This isn't to test you or to show you the meaning of gratitude, but rather, to provide you with things that you'd either:
A. Need, and would buy with money in the first place
B. Need, but can't buy with money (support, guidance, love, etc.)
Our needs are anticipated by our guides and the more we acknowledge the "hits" that our guides are sending us, the more "hits" we'll get.
