Note that if the pattern ends with /, **, are automatically added:

If the pattern ends with /, ** will be automatically added. For example, the pattern foo/ becomes foo/**. In other words, it matches "foo" and everything inside, recursively

Thanks for that tip =). I don't know why I used the "/ **" syntax, but I think I had some problems when I wrote without it, it didn't work so well. Reading your comment maybe I forgot the "/" and ended up just passing "... /Personal", but I can't remember now.
