How You Can Be An Abundant Thinker
The first step is to take a good honest look at your current and past attitudes, and assess whether your thinking has been based on abundance. If not, then you have to gauge how far away from abundant thinking you are. You should ask certain questions: Do you routinely bother evaluating how your life is faring? If so, do you accomplish what you set out to do? If you have mixed results, do you know what is working and what isn't Which areas need to be improved? Where does your attitude need adjusting to create a better life for yourself? Once you ...
Using Interpersonal Attraction To Have Great Relationships
Interpersonal attraction is very simply what causes friendships and relationships. It’s a major point of psychological study. And there’s really not much hard data on why one person might be attracted to another person and not attracted or even repulsed by someone else. Interpersonal attraction, despite all the studies, is really somewhat a mystery. There are certain principles at work, of course. It’s believed that people are attracted to people of approximately the same level of physical attractiveness. And that people of the same social background and similar economic situations will experience the interpersonal attraction that draws them together. But also that ...
Attracting Abundance – You Can Have Anything You Believe
Some people believe that attracting abundance is something that the rich and famous must know how to do. The rest of just aren't privy to their secrets.

Does it sound too good to be true? It does. And yet people who use the principles behind things like the law of attraction, conscious creation and positive thinking ...

Financial AdbundanceLaw Of Abundance – Get What You Want
The law of abundance is the belief that what you need is available to you in unlimited amounts. People who believe that understanding this law is the key to happiness believe that thanks to it, there’s no limit to the things we can have, if we believe that it’s so. The universe creates everything in unlimited amounts and you can have as much of it as you want, according to the law of abundance.
Many people try to manifest the law of abundance by writing a check. This act is basically a visualization that’s intended to keep your focus on financial prosperity. Positive visualization is when you want something, and you focus on it at the same time believe that it’s possible.
When you write a check in a prescribed way, and either keep it with you or keep it in a safe place, you are committing an act of faith. You are believing that you’re not just wasting a check and doing something silly. Further than that, the act of looking at the check frequently, which you are supposed to do, keeps this belief fresh in your mind.
Some people who urge others to write this check insist that you must write the check by making it out to you, with your full name. You write “paid in full” in the memo line, and then sign it, not with your name, but with “Law of Abundance.” Some say to date it, some say not to date it. Some say to leave the amount blank so you can attract whatever amount you need.
Others point to other successful people who have filled out checks to themselves for a million dollars or more and then achieved that success. Or who have altered a small bill to look like a much larger bill, and then received that amount of money.
Still others say that the check must be filled out on the first new moon of the year, or within a number of hours of the first new moon to guarantee prosperity for that year. Whether or not you write the check at all, let alone write it during that first new moon, you can start to attract prosperity now.
You can, of course, write a check at any time and keep it with you or keep it where you’ll see it frequently. Writing that check, though, simply represents an act of faith. Faith that you’re writing it for a reason and that it will work. The law of abundance doesn’t require that paper check to bring good things to you.
Rather, it’s your attitude and your ability to visualize and believe that you’ll get what you need that will do it. Writing a check is just a physical manifestation of that belief.
So anything you can do to physically manifest your belief that you will succeed financially can help. Whether you write a check, or keep an altered $1 bill where you can see it, it’s your belief that lets the law of abundance provide you with financial prosperity.
Ray West.Manifesting Money with Energy and Strong Intention
To manifest more money in your life, you will want to maintain a consistent focus on strengthening your intent and belief. The more you do this, the more you will become magnetic to money and abundance in all forms. Even better, this process is easy and fun; you just have to keep working at it.
The process has three clear components:
1) Intending to receive more money
The very first step is to decide that you WILL have more money. The majority of people don’t know that they can do this. They think that they can only have so much money (like what comes through their job) and that’s it. However, being firm and setting a strong intention to receive more money powerfully triggers the universe to start working on your behalf! Even if you can’t see it happening right away, if you tune in and pay attention you should be able to feel your circumstances starting to shift.
Setting an intention is as simple as stating what you want out loud: “Money is flowing to me now.” Say it with power and conviction – it is not a request, it is an INTENTION. It should have power behind it.
2) Repeat, repeat, repeat
Your intention should be repeated often so that it can build more energy and take on a life of its own. You can say the statement many times throughout the day, or you can set aside short sessions of 10 or 15 minutes to repeat it a few dozen times and then put it out of your mind. Both ways will work; or come up with your own routine. The only thing that matters is that you keep building energy by saying the statement frequently.
3) Believe it is your truth
Lastly, put all of your strength into believing that the sentiment in your statement is your TRUTH. When you say the statement, do you feel a bit uncertain about it? Does it make you feel nervous or strange? If so, this is just a sign that you are not yet aligned with such a truth. Keep saying the statement repeatedly and eventually that will change.
Also, it does not matter if you can’t think of any ways for more money to come to you; let the universe handle that part. Simply say over and over again, “Money is flowing to me now” and work on believing that it’s true. You can even visualize a massive stream of money flowing through the universe, making its way into your life. See yourself joyfully opening your arms to accept this gift from the universe, and know that it’s already yours.
If you have been focusing on lack and scarcity for some time before trying this exercise, it may take a little time to start working. Simply keep saying your statement each day, doing your best to build up your belief and confidence, and before long you should start to see changes taking place. Perhaps some extra money will come to you from unexpected sources, or your financial circumstances will improve in other ways. Keep it going and the larger changes should happen before long too.
One of the biggest challenges in attracting money and abundance is that you have to be very, very CONSISTENT with it. Improving your thoughts takes dedication and focus. If you don’t put forth that effort each and every day, your results are going to be minimal.
If you need help staying focused, you’ll definitely want to check out the Allow Abundance Course – easy, powerful weekly exercises that can dramatically help you turn your thoughts around and get the results you want.

Ray West.How to Create an Abundance Mentality Quickly
It can be challenging to create abundance when you are struggling with a lot of negative thoughts about money. You are probably already aware that you need to stay focused on abundance in order to create abundance, by taking control of your thoughts and developing an “abundance mentality” to replace your old “scarcity mentality”.
But exactly how are you supposed to do this? When those old, scarcity-focused thoughts keep popping up in your mind, how should you handle them?
Developing an abundance mentality can be achieved best by the power of repetition and persistence. Don’t disregard the “persistence” part of that formula; it’s important! A lot of people don’t realize that they have to put forth quite a bit of effort to change their thoughts at first, and once they’ve done that consistently for a few days, THEN the process gets much easier. But you have to work on it consistently for a little while first.
To get you started, here is a simple two-step plan for developing an abundance mentality:
First, it’s important to use the power of repetition to your advantage. Take a sheet of paper or an index card, and write this statement on it: “I am abundant in every way.” Carry this slip of paper with you over the next few days, and say the statement out loud many times each day. Each time you say the words, do your best to tune into the FEELINGS that they inspire. What does it really feel like to BE abundant in every way? Does that thought make you feel uplifted, happy, free, excited? Stay tuned into these feelings for a few minutes each time you recite the statement.
Next step: Make sure you don’t accidentally contradict your new abundance mentality.
Be sure you don’t complain about money, or get sucked into feeling frustrated about your financial situation, and be sure you don’t invest ANY of your attention or energy to financial problems whatsoever. Keep in mind that you will be tempted to do so – after all, it’s a habit! But it’s a habit you’ll have to start breaking as quickly as you can. If you don’t, you’ll find that your results in creating abundance are less than good. Essentially you’ll be splitting your energy between your old scarcity mentality and your new abundance mentality, but you can’t have it both ways.
So, if you happen to catch yourself complaining about money, stop immediately and say your abundance mentality statement again: “I am abundant in every way.” If you happen to catch yourself worrying about money, say the abundance mentality statement again: “I am abundant in every way.” If you start feeling jealous about someone else’s good fortune, say the statement yet again. Keep saying the statement over and over again, and it will begin to sink in and form a strong abundance mentality.
Does that seem too simple to you? It really IS simple! You’ll have to put forth some decent effort at the beginning, but in a short period of time you’ll start to see the results. Just keep in mind that when it comes to creating abundance, you have to be consistent and persistent. If you aren’t, your results are going to show that lack of commitment.

ProsperityAttracting Prosperity In Your Life
There have always been some people who seem to have everything they want, and some people who can’t seem to get anything they want; so what’s the difference between these two groups of people? It all comes down to attracting prosperity.
What you need to understand is that you are always attracting something. If you are poor, then it’s because you have created a state of lack in your life. But if you’re poor, then chances are good that you are not aware of how you have brought that into your life. The good news is that attracting prosperity uses the exact same mechanisms as attracting poverty.
It may be uncomfortable, but you need to fully admit that you have caused your current situation; you need to accept it; you need to embrace it. You may have some negative feelings, but these will only be temporary. The point is to convince yourself that you are responsible for where you are right now.
Once you accept responsibility for your present circumstances, you can turn it around and start attracting prosperity. The way you do that is by changing your thoughts.
“Wait a minute! I’m already thinking about not being in this mess. I’m always focusing on getting out of this hole, and I want to have a better life.” Sound familiar? If so, then you have identified a simple, but critical flaw in your thinking.
You will get what you focus on, but your mind will only focus on the subject and not any conditions you place on it. So, while you are consciously thinking about “not being in this mess” your subconscious ignores the word ‘not’ because it’s conditional. Instead, it focuses on “this mess” and that’s what it attracts.
Once you understand how it works, you can start thinking about exactly what you want in place of what you don’t want. So, instead of “getting out of this mess” you start thinking about “living in a beautiful home”.
That’s only a brief example, but there is another important step to attracting prosperity, and that is to be specific. The more specific you are, the more believable it will be to your subconscious mind. Why does that matter? Because once your subconscious believes something, it will do everything it can to make it a reality.
Apart from focusing on what you want and being specific, you also need to add strong emotion to your thoughts. If you have ever found yourself doing something emotional, even though your mind was telling you to stop, then you understand how powerful emotions can be. The trick to attracting prosperity is to put the power of those emotions to work for you.
You can have the things you want. Attracting prosperity is a simple matter of following the right steps to make it happen. It takes practice, but it will be more than worth it once you have the things you want.
Ray West.Achieving Spiritual Abundance In Your Life
Spiritual abundance might sound like a phrase that’s hard to decipher. Is it talking about being a very spiritual person, more abundantly spiritual than others? Actually, the ability to tap into your deepest inner self while allowing the universe to provide for your needs is a good definition.
We are all spiritual beings. Whether you’re religious or you do anything spiritual on a day to day basis or not, you have a spiritual side. Some people define their spirituality with a religion, while others believe that our connection to the world around us and nature defines that side of ourselves.
Regardless of how you define it, you can gain a better understanding of your spiritual self and your ability to achieve spiritual abundance by following a few basic steps.
Attracting abundance and attracting prosperity are basically the same thing. And the first step to achieving them is by believing that it’s possible. For some, this is the hardest thing to learn about spiritual abundance because they have been conditioned to believe that it’s so difficult to get anywhere in life.
Positive thinking and positive visualization follow the principle that if you picture something and believe that it’s possible, you can make it happen in your life. It’s necessary to learn to do this when it comes to success, your financial situation and any situation in your life you want to change with spiritual abundance.
If you cannot picture yourself with a large bank account, with bills that are paid, with no debt or less debt, you won’t attract those things to you. But abundance can be yours if you’ll learn to first decide what it is that you want and then decide that it can be yours.
Some people write checks to themselves. Some people use a fake million dollar bill. But they focus on these things, they look at them frequently—sometimes several times a day—and they learn to believe that they will have these things.
The law of abundance basically teaches you to tap into the power of your mind and your beliefs to achieve your dreams. It is positive thinking and positive visualization amplified and focused to an even sharper point. Instead of just feeling positive in general, you’ll use that positive feeling toward a specific thing.
If you want to get out of debt, pay off your car or your house, or afford a vacation, you will need a specific amount of money to do those things. And it may seem like too large an amount of money. You might think that there’s no way you can get that much money for those things any time soon.
Instead you see months, maybe years, of scraping and sacrificing other things in order to be able to afford it. Because you can picture that and you believe it, you ensure it will happen that way.
Shift your thinking instead to see yourself effortlessly coming into the money to enable these things in your life, and you will attract spiritual abundance.
Ray West.Start Attracting Prosperity Today
You might think that attracting prosperity sounds like a phrase that people use who think you need to meditate two hours a day, not eat meat and communicate with spirits with Biblical names. And while there are some New Age and New Thought gurus who do all of those things, actually attracting prosperity to your life is much simpler than that.
That’s not to say that it’s easy. There are a number of ways to do it wrong, which only means that you won’t attract the prosperity you deserve. There’s no doom and gloom option when it comes to trying to bring good things into your life. There’s no way to do it wrong and actually attract heartache.
Even by just attempting methods of attracting prosperity, you start wheels turning in both your head and the universe that can help good things happening in your life. Because the first step in making good things happen for yourself is a change in your attitude. This can affect every part of your life, if you let it.
Instead of seeing things through a negative lens, it’s necessary to see them through a positive one. Use the analogy of a glass that’s filled halfway with water. Instead of seeing it as half-empty or half-dirty, learn to see it as half-full. If you burn dinner, don’t see it as a ruined meal, notice that the pans will still be fine after they’re washed.
This shift in perception takes you from seeing negativity and limitations and instead into seeing the positive side of everything. Attracting prosperity works on the principle that what you believe and what you surround yourself with will attract similar things. If you go through your day noticing what’s wrong with everything, you are going to attract problems.
But if you go through your day noticing the good side to each situation, you will attract prosperity. This might sound far-fetched to some people, but when you focus on being positive and on seeing the good in things, your attitude will change.
Once this attitude shift takes place, it becomes even easier to automatically see the positive in even a very bad situation. When you begin noticing positive things, opportunities that you would have otherwise missed if you had been focused on the negative instead make themselves known to you.
When viewed this way, attracting prosperity seems less like some strange metaphysical system than it does good common sense. When you see an opportunity you might have missed with a more negative attitude, it’s like you’ve attracted the potential for prosperity, by seeing an opportunity where you wouldn’t have before.
And when you’re faced with an opportunity, you can take advantage of it where you couldn’t have before. Even if it was something you might have noticed before but not acted on when you had a more negative attitude, with a positive attitude you may act on it and believe that it will work in your favor. Attracting prosperity becomes second nature when you believe that good things are possible.
