Maybe you believe in a higher power and maybe you don't but energy is everywhere and it's pretty darn smart. It knows how to build and gain momentum naturally. It know how to flow. When you split your energy you are getting in the way of the natural flow. So how do you not get in the way? Stay on the positive side. Going back to the new job example. Make a list of everything you want in that job but phrase everything in a positive way. Instead of saying "I don't want a job that doesn't pay well" say "I want a well paying job". Make as long of a list as you like, be specific. Read the list each day. Keep the energy united and open yourself up to all kinds of possibilities. It's a big, vast, abundant Universe and you can have what you want! When you get what you want focus on something else and repeat the process. It starts with you. Let the energy flow!
Happier, Abundant people make for a better world for everyone! Be Abundant!
