Abundance Theory- Is It Just Hocus Pocus?

By Carole Pagan

Abundance thinking, positive thinking, visioning, affirmations, manifesting.. You've heard all these words trying to sell you on the next best greatest self improvement programs, but does any of this stuff really work?

Abundance Theory- Is It Just Hocus Pocus? Carole Pagan© 2006

You've no doubt heard from a bunch of people teaching you about creating abundance in your life. I'm sure that you have to be wondering if any of this stuff works, or if it's just a misty hocus pocus way to get money out of you.

Well, most of it does work – and for quite logical reasons. Let's take a look at a few of them. Positive Thinking. If you change the way you think, you change your life. This is absolutely true. No magic here. If you think you can't do something well, you won't do
it well. If you think only bad things happen, you will only notice bad things that happen – and usually create more by your negative mood. People will be antagonized by you. You'll be more likely to have accidents.

Now say you're 50 years old, and you've been laid off from your job. You can believe that you're too old to change. Too old to learn something new. You just accept that you will be a greeter at Wal-Mart until the day you die. Now let's say that you know you have had to file taxes for the last 32 years, and you know a bit about taxes. You've heard that there is a tax course in town, and
once you complete it you can do tax work for this particular company. You think you could do that. Or maybe you always wanted to write a book. And you know that with all the available technology you could self-publish, or write an e-book, or maybe even get
a publisher to accept your work. Or maybe you can do free lance articles for magazines in a certain area of interest for you. Maybe you know a lot about bass fishing, or caring for aging parents, or decorating with antiques, or selling at flea markets.

But what happens when you think you could do something, but you know it would be a lot of work, and you don't know for sure that it will pan out. You sort of believe, but…That's where visioning and affirmations can help you out. Visioning is where you practice seeing yourself doing what you want to do, or living the way you want to live. It's a very important exercise to help you build your belief –because as you saw, your belief can make or break you. This is a simplistic overview. There is just not enough
room in a one page article to tell you all the ways to use visioning techniques. Visioning is not just about daydreaming and living in a fantasy world. It can be used for planning And problem solving too. Affirmations are sort of self coaching. Keep telling your-
self you will, and you will. Keep telling yourself you can't, and you won't.

Is there magic? No, not really. The simple truth is, the more you believe you can do something, the more likely you are to take the actions to make it happen. By using these techniques, you can build your belief. As your belief grows and you take more action,
so will your skills grow. Once the ball starts rolling, the only way to fail is to quit.

So think positive thoughts, picture yourself as a true success, repeat your affirmations often, take action, and don't quit. You are a Winner!
