Once upon a time, I completely bought into the idea that there is something magical about how to attract abundance.

I thought, “If I’m just a really good person, I will be blessed with good health, money, a loving relationship, and eternal happiness.”

I’ve worked with many folks who have had  a similar fantasy. Just look at the popularity of the movie “The Secret,” and you’ll quickly realize that people are hoping for a magical way to receive every imaginable gift from the universe.

Gradually, I realized that abundance comes to me through the channels of people, commerce, and great love.

That’s obvious, right? But that doesn’t stop people from hoping there is something supernatural that will pour out a cornucopia of riches.

I came to realize something inherent in the way life works that does enable you to receive all that you want, but it is not by hoping and wishing.

The nature of the universe is that it mirrors back to you what you put out.

Take for instance that you want to be aligned with abundance and creative ideas, and have a certain comfortable amount of money, free time, a nice home and car, and furnishings, and toys….

There is a definable way to get to all of these things.

The first step is figuring out what you want and stating it.  If you don’t even think about what you want, how likely is it you will arrive where you want to be?  No one would start on a trip without looking at a map or planning the route.  The same applies to life.
