Most of us know we want, yet, attracting abundance is anything but a simple matter for most of us. We want the great houses, perfect jobs, fast cars, and perfect relationships, but why is it that so many of us try and fail to do this? It’s not that we don’t have the skills or abilities that those who seem to get these things effortlessly do. It’s just that we don’t know what’s behind attracting abundance, and how to make it happen for us.
 
What does it mean when we say ‘attracting abundance’? It means that you attract what you want and need into your life for your subconscious and conscious mind. In short, you let the universe know that you are worth your dreams, and you’re worth having them come true. Once we know this for ourselves and once we realize the power of the universe, this abundance can’t help but come to us. We will truly be blessed beyond measure.
 
Thoughts have power. Our thoughts reflect our self-esteem, needs, and desires; directly influencing what comes into our lives. If your thoughts are filled with self-loathing and lack of belief in your own abilities, attracting abundance will be practically impossible. However, if you turn to positive thinking to teach yourself how to be confident and believe you deserve to get what you want, then you can have a life overflowing in abundance.
 
Manifesting abundance is not a special ability; everybody has the ability to do this, and you can do it if you choose to take control of your own thoughts and ask the universe for guidance. Self-reflection and meditation are paths to learning just what those desires are, and if you can do that, you can discover what you really want.
 
If you want to start attracting abundance, one of the ways you can do this is to use a journal or note cards, for example, to record daily thoughts so that you can go back and peruse them. Go back and take a look at what you’ve written; if anything is written down in a negative fashion, change it to the positive. Instead of saying, ‘I hate my job,’ change it to something positive so that you can attract what you want, not what you don’t want. What you really want to do is to focus on getting a job you love and that pays well, right?
 
You could replace this negative draining thought by writing down ‘I deserve to work in a position I love.’ You can also choose to make the statement more detailed if desired. Using the note card to write down the specific field you are interested in, the ideal salary, and the exact position. Constantly look at these note cards and mentally picture yourself getting what you want.
 
Make a box for your goals, and put in your note cards, pictures that support positive thinking. If your goal is to own your own home, then your box could include pictures of the dream home you want, brochures from real estate companies and carpet samples.
 
Fantasizing is an important step involved in attracting abundance. When we daydream, sleep and meditate we let our imagination and creativity off a leash. Since our relaxed minds are more open, we can fantasize without any negative thoughts interrupting. To take advantage of this, try to fall asleep while focusing on what you desire from the universe.
 
Meditate in front of a picture that represents the goal you want to achieve, or your box of goals. Look in the mirror every day and say something nice about what you see to increase your confidence.
 
The universe tends to act quickly. Don’t be surprised that when you fully believe in the power of attracting abundance previous stumbling blocks and obstacles quickly disappear.
