forbesSome people believe that attracting abundance is something that only the rich and famous must know how to do. The rest of us just aren’t privy to their secrets. The belief of attracting abundance, however, lies in the fact that as long as you believe it and can feel it,you can have it.

Does that sound way too simple to work? Does it sound too good to be true? It does for some people. 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.

There is little doubt that a person’s attitude, no matter what happens in his or her life can make the difference between whether they are a happy person or an unhappy person. I have known people who seem to have negative things happen to them, and they appreciate the contrasts of those experiences and allow themselves to appreciate the renewed clarity they have as a result of that experience regarding their goals. What others might perceive as a negative experience, they turn into a positive one. The more consistent they are about appreciating the contrasts and focusing on what they desire the more wonderful opportunities, people, things and experiences they attract.

Of course we probably all know someone who seems to consistently have negative things happen to them and they are consistently miserable. They have the attitude that every time they take one step forward then they have to take two steps backwards, thus they create their reality of never getting ahead in life, because that is how they “feel”. This is because we attract what our feelings match.

If we give off positive energy in some areas of our life and negative energy in other areas, we tend to attract a mixture of opportunities and experiences that match the varied emotions we are putting out to the world.

Attracting abundance works in a similar way. A person who believes that, no matter what, he will never have enough money will probably always be plagued by financial problems because that’s what he believes. His thoughts will attract similar energy.

The person who shifts their thinking to decide that they desire abundance, deserve abundance, begins to believe that it’s possible while allowing themselves to feel abundant – will attract a different kind of energy. If you think abundant thoughts and learn to believe them, express gratitude for the abundance you presently enjoy then you will attract prosperity. Believing that your positive thoughts and feelings can ensure that you have what you need and more, are the first steps in attracting abundance and letting prosperity flow into your life.
