Far and away my favorite self-development author is Dr. Wayne Dyer.
The following passage is from Chapter 10 in his book, “The Power of Intention.” The chapter is titled, “It Is My Intention To: Feel Successful And Attract Abundance Into My Life.”
Step 1: See the world as an abundant, providing, friendly place.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. When you see the world as abundant and friendly, your intentions are genuine possibilities. They will, in fact, become a certainty, because your world will be experienced from the higher frequencies. In this first step, you’re receptive to a world that provides rather than restricts. You’ll see a world that wants you to be successful and abundant, rather than one that conspires against you.
“The Power of Intention” by Wayne Dyer, published by Hay House.
My photograph, “Allowing Abundance” helps me to visualize Wayne’s words in action. You can interpret this image in two ways. You can see an avalanche of gold flowing down and filling your cup with whatever blessings you desire.
Or if you reverse the top and bottom of the image you can see the avalanche of abundance flowing away from you, leaving your cup empty and desolate.
A large print of “Allowing Abundance” hangs in a conspicuous area of my home where I see it often. I need to constantly remind myself to stay positive and remain in a state of allowing. I can choose to see a world that is unfair and my life lacking, or a world that is abundant and full of genuine possibilities.
Abundance is waiting for all of us in all areas of our lives. As Wayne says, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
I highly recommend Dr. Dyers book. The Power of Intention is available at bookstores or directly from Hay House.
