Is this you? Some people believe that attracting abundance is something that only the rich and famous get to do. And the rest of us just aren’t privy to their secrets. I have to admit that I have had that thought a time or two, myself.
Another common idea is the belief that you must have money to make money. The concept of attracting abundance, however, flies in the face of that and says that as long as you believe it, you can have it.
As long as you believe it, you can have it.
Does that sound way too simple to work? Does it sound too good to be true? Maybe so.
And yet people who use the principles behind things like the law of attraction, conscious creation and positive thinking will tell you that it really can work for you, because it worked for them.
It seems obvious that a person’s attitude, no matter what happens in his or her life, can make the difference between a happy person and an unhappy one.
We’ve all known people who seem to have the worst luck, who still seem happy. And it seems that no matter what happens to them, they see the bright side and somehow they turn out okay.
And you may know someone who seems to have everything going for him, but is miserable. Sometimes it can be hard to understand how someone could be so unhappy when she has so many good things in her life.
But when that happens, it because of what the person has attracted. If you are surrounded by misery, you're more likely to become miserable. So even though she might be well-off financially, she may attract sadness and despair.
Attracting abundance requires a new state of mind. Like the person with the bad luck who stays positive and happy no matter what happens, you have to find ways to see the positive even in the middle of the negative things that happen in your life. But you also need to come to believe that positive things can and will happen to you.
Even the person we mentioned, who is happy despite his or her horrible luck has good things happen. But that person has trained himself to see the good things even in events that most of us would dismiss as completely negative. This focus on the positive allows positive energy to flow to that person, even in less-than-great situations.
Attracting abundance works in a similar way. A person who believes that, no matter what, she will never have enough money will probably always be plagued by financial problems because that’s what she believes. Her thoughts will attract similar energy.
But for the person who shifts his thinking to decide that he wants abundance, and begins to believe that it’s possible will attract a different kind of energy. If you think abundant thoughts and learn to believe them, then you can attract prosperity.
A principle of the law of abundance is that the universe creates enough for every one. And that one person having enough or more than enough does not mean that another person must go without. There is enough for everyone to have more than he or she will ever need.
Believing this, and believing that your positive thoughts can ensure that you have what you need and more, are the first steps in attracting abundance and letting prosperity flow into your life.
One of the tenets of conscious creation is that we each have a separate reality that other people cannot know or really understand. And that each of us has the ability to create that reality into anything we want it to be.
Every day when we get out of bed, we set into motion the creation of a certain reality, good or bad. And through conscious, also sometimes called deliberate, creation, we can shift that reality in either a better or worse direction.
Also at the heart of this conscious way of living is the belief that we all create our own reality, even though we don’t realize it. So that when something bad happens to you, it becomes your responsibility to change things for the better.
But that also suggests that it is possible to change things for the better.
The first step in creating your own reality begins with your beliefs.
Let’s say that right now you believe that most people are selfish and only out to get what they can for themselves without regards to other people. Your belief is creating that reality in your life, so people in your life will often "prove" this belief.
But, if you shift your belief to one that says that most people are good at heart and want to do the right thing, you may find that the people in your life will begin to fit that description. Or you'll meet different people who do.
If you believe that you will never get out of debt, you probably never will. But if you wake up each day using conscious creation to believe you will get out of debt, you will find that it happens.
What do you believe about attracting the abundance you want, or creating your own reality? Is it possible for you?
