Do you want to attract more money?
Are you wondering why you haven't attracted more money even when you've done everything you thought you needed to do?
What really works when it comes to attracting more money anyway?
I've been studying the Law of Attraction for more than three decades.

That's how I ended up in the movie The Secret,
and then on Larry King’s and Donny Deutsch's TV shows, among others. I've written several books about it and also produced the number one selling Law of Attraction program through Nightingale-Conant called The Missing Secret.
I know how the Law of Attraction works and why so many people don't clearly understand it.
When it comes to the Law of Attraction, most people initially want to learn how to use it to attract more money. Then they wonder how to attract romance, cars, homes, and happiness. But money is the starting place for most people.
So, how do you attract more money?
When it comes to attracting anything (money in particular), there are at least seven ways to do it effectively.
Here they are:
1. Give money away.
It sounds counterintuitive, yet the more you give, the more you will receive (unless you block the receiving, which ties in to the next step).
Give openly and freely to wherever you receive spiritual nourishment. Give on a regular basis. The rule of thumb is to give 10% of whatever you receive and give more when you feel inspired to do so.
Remember to give to the person, place, or group that is keeping your spirit alive. Just ask, "Where was I most inspired this past week?" and give freely to that source. Ask the question daily or weekly, as the source will often change.
Here's an inside tip: When most people give money, they do it with a tight fist. They don't give much. Why? It’s because they're afraid. They're holding on. Well, the energy of fear will attract more things to fear. Instead, give money with an open heart and an expectation of return. Give in love.
2. Get clear.
You may push money away with hidden limiting beliefs, such as "money is bad" or "rich people are evil." Those are beliefs, not facts. Get clear of them and money will come to you (as long as you also do the next step).
Getting clear is truly The Missing Secret to making the Law of Attraction work for you all the time. After all, it isn't your conscious intentions that are being manifested in your life – it’s your unconscious counterintentions. I talk about this extensively in my upcoming Nightingale-Conant program called The Secret to Attracting Money being released in early 2009.
For example, when you set a goal on New Year's Day to stop smoking or date more, what happened the next week? You gave up your conscious goal for your unconscious belief that you couldn't do it. You weren't in alignment with your intention. You were not "clear."
Most likely in your unconscious mind you have limiting beliefs about money, such as ...
- "Money is evil."
- "Money will attract problems."
- "Money will make me a selfish person."
- "Wanting money is greedy."
- "Rich people are snobs."
If you have one or more of those limiting beliefs within you, do you really think you'll attract any money? In truth, you'll attract NOT having money. Why? Because your unconscious counterintention ("Money is bad") will veto your conscious intention ("I now attract more money into my life").
Is it any wonder some people say the concept of the movie The Secret, or the Law of Attraction, doesn't work? Obviously, once you clear those hidden blocks/beliefs – nothing will stand in the way of your success. The roadblocks will be gone.
I talk about ways to get clear in my upcoming The Secret to Attracting Money Nightingale-Conant course. One thing you can do right now is simply question your beliefs. Become a belief detective and look for any limiting beliefs about money. When you release your inner blocks, you will attract more money.
3. Take action.
Too many people sit and wait for money to materialize in front of them.
I believe in magic and miracles. And I also believe that your role in the process of attracting money is to actually do something to bring it your way. Act on your ideas right away. "Money likes speed" is my favorite mantra.
If you don't act now, you'll see your idea manifested some day, and somebody else will be attracting money from it. What can you do right now to move toward creating something that will attract more money? Whatever it is, do it now.
When you doubt and second-guess yourself, instead of taking action, you are demonstrating that you aren't clear (see the second tip above) about money and your right to attract it.
Act now and get rich.
4. Support a cause.
You may push money away because you don't feel you deserve it. One way around this (while you still work on getting clear inside yourself) is to want money for a larger purpose. I created Operation YES to end homelessness. Raising hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more) for that cause will remove any remaining prosperity limitations within me. While I won't receive a dime from Operation YES, I will attract money to me in other ways, such as the contacts and goodwill I'll create.
In short, you should want money for a larger reason than your own ego. This is a beautiful way to attract more money without wanting it only for yourself. Realize that when you are wealthy, you are better able to help family, friends, your community, and even the world. A good reason to attract more money is for all the good it can do for others, not just you. Ask yourself what cause would you support (or even create) once you attracted more money?
5. Get support.
One of the wisest things you can do to achieve any goal is create or join a mastermind group devoted to it. A mastermind group is a group of people who get together to work on a specific goal. Bill Hibbler and I wrote a complete book on how to do this, called Meet and Grow Rich.
The idea is to be around people who can keep your energy and inspiration high. While you can make progress on your own, it's so much easier when you have support.
This support can also come in the way of audiotapes, books, and other learning tools. I've been buying audios from Nightingale-Conant for more than 30 years for just that reason. They help me stay focused on constantly growing and improving. Even when I was struggling, I went to the library and borrowed books and tapes to keep me informed and inspired. Today I can afford to buy my own materials because I invested in my education every step along the way.
Again, all of this is support that will help you attract more money.
6. Be grateful.
This is huge. Be thankful for the money you have (which is likely considered true wealth by people starving in third world countries) and you'll begin to attract more money.
Gratitude sends off a signal of appreciation, which brings you more to be thankful for. Show gratitude for anything in this moment that you can be sincerely grateful for.
After I was homeless, and while I was still experiencing poverty, I began this exercise by holding an ordinary pencil and being grateful for it. Once I truly experienced gratitude, it shifted my energy vibe so I could then experience more to be grateful for. Today I have much to be thankful for. I have houses, cars, collectible guitars, and so much more. And it all began with a pencil.
Look around and ask yourself what you are grateful for right now. Then start to feel gratitude for it right away.
7. Do what you love.
There's no sense in working at something you hate. If you are currently at a job you don't like, find a way to enjoy it for the time being as you work toward finding your passion. Following your passion is the greatest secret of all when it comes to attracting wealth.
Everyone from Donny Deutsch to Donald Trump to Bill Gates to me agree that passion (combined with the other steps above) is your ticket to financial freedom. Even when I worked for oil companies back in Houston and didn't like my work, I found ways to do what I loved. I wrote my first book during my lunch hours. I spoke on weekends and sold my book in the back of the room. Over time, doing what I love became my life. And today it's my moment-by-moment wonder.
Ask yourself what you would do even if you were not being paid for it. That's a clue as to what you should be doing and finding a way to be paid for it. You can attract more money from love.
Finally, expect success.
Expect that you are now attracting money and playfully looking around asking, "I wonder how big money will come to me today?" This is the mindset of expectation. It will keep your brain tuned in to seeking and finding opportunities.
And of course, you must take "inspired action" when you see those opportunities.
Make sure to get your own copy of my upcoming Nightingale-Conant program called The Secret to Attracting Money in early 2009. You’ll learn everything from how to attract money to how to put real money-making ideas to work so you can make money right away. These are the same strategies I used to become financially free.
Go for it!
