Very very good question.This is where one must tune in to the cosmos, then one sees and understands.It comes from a depth where you realize that maybe you did not take any effort at all,it came to you. In the beginning it is very vague,the thought enters you from within-intuition or from outside at the same time you are thinking of it.Then one begins to depend on it.It also comes as dreams,follow them make them materialize.The universe is alive-it is you and will guide you if you allow her to. It comes to you out of nowhere.
