Using the Law of Attraction with money is definitely something every human being is interested in.
Here as much as anywhere else, it's important to be clear on how much money you want to attract, and why you want to attract it.
It doesn't matter if you are good or bad - anyone can attract money, because we all need it. "God causes the sun to shine on the righteous and the unrighteous alike." So do not worry about whether or not you deserve the wealth you desire.
If you know you don't deserve it because of something you've done in the past--like maybe you stole from someone or lied to someone in a way that caused them to lose money--that's nothing to worry about. Simply go and make amends to the person to whom you've done wrong. If you can't do this, then pray about it--there may be an indirect way that you can spiritually make amends.
Set yourself free from guilt, shame, and bad karma. There is no one too far gone to be turned around.
We're so conditioned to think of things in terms of their cost in U. S. dollars (or whatever currency you use) that we think enough money is what it will take to solve all our problems. "If I had enough money, then I could spend all my time dieting and working out, then I could attract the mate that I want, then I could finally be happy." But is it really necessary to do all that, when you could just be happy now?
Or it could be, "If I was earning six (or seven) figures, then I could finally make a name for myself, then my mom (or dad) would finally be proud of me and give me that acknowledgement I've been waiting for, and then I'd finally be respected." Even if you make the money, that acknowledgement may never come - so why not just respect yourself now?
So many of the things we really want do not come with a dollar value attached to them - and anyone can be loved, happy, and respected just by deciding to love and respect themselves and be happy.
Money can't buy happiness, but the lack of it sure can make you miserable. For basic material needs--food, clothing, shelter, health care, protection, utilities, and the like--our current organization of society requires money, whether that comes from your own pocket or government assistance or some other source.
The good news is that basic material provisions are one of the easiest things to manifest using the Law of Attraction, because they are easy to visualize.

But you don't need to limit yourself to just your immediate needs. It's just as easy to manifest a million dollars as it is to manifest twenty.
There's a great story in Napoleon Hill's Think And Grow Rich describing how one Chicago pastor did just that.
This story proves the truth of that old saying, "where there's a will, there's a way." It was told to me by that beloved educator and clergyman, the late Frank W. Gunsaulus, who began his preaching career in the stockyards region of South Chicago.
While Dr. Gunsaulus was going through college, he observed many defects in our educational system, defects which he believed he could correct, if he were the head of a college. His deepest desire was to become the directing head of an educational institution in which young men and women would be taught to "learn by doing."
He made up his mind to organize a new college in which he could carry out his ideas, without being handicapped by orthodox methods of education.
He needed a million dollars to put the project across! Where was he to lay his hands on so large a sum of money? That was the question that absorbed most of this ambitious young preacher's thought.
But he couldn't seem to make any progress. Every night he took that thought to bed with him. He got up with it in the morning. He took it with him everywhere he went. He turned it over and over in his mind until it became a consuming obsession with him. A million dollars is a lot of money. He recognized that fact, but he also recognized the truth that the only limitation is that which one sets up in one's own mind.
Being a philosopher as well as a preacher, Dr. Gunsaulus recognized, as do all who succeed in life, that DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE is the starting point from which one must begin. He recognized, too, that definiteness of purpose takes on animation, life, and power when backed by a BURNING DESIRE to translate that purpose into its material equivalent.
He knew all these great truths, yet, he did not know where, or how to lay his hands on a million dollars. The natural procedure would have been to give up and quit, by saying, "Ah well, my idea is a good one but I cannot do anything with it, because I never can procure the necessary million dollars." That is exactly what the majority of people would have said, but it is not what Dr. Gunsaulus said. What he said, and what he did are so important that I now introduce him, and let him speak for himself.
"One Saturday afternoon I sat in my room thinking of ways and means of raising the money to carry out my plans. For nearly two years I had been thinking, but I had done nothing but think!
"The time had come for ACTION!"
"I made up my mind, then and there, that I would get the necessary million dollars within a week. How? I was not concerned about that. The main thing of importance was the decision to get the money within a specified time, and I want to tell you that the moment I reached a definite decision to get the money within a specified time, a strange feeling of assurance came over me, such as I had never before experienced. Something inside me seemed to say, "Why didn't you reach that decision a long time ago? The money was waiting for you all the time!'
"Things began to happen in a hurry. I called the newspapers and announced I would preach a sermon the following morning, entitled, "What I would do if I had a Million Dollars.'"
"I went to work on the sermon immediately, but I must tell you, frankly, the task was not difficult, because I had been preparing that sermon for almost two years. The spirit back of it was a part of me!
"Long before midnight I had finished writing the sermon. I went to bed and slept with a feeling of confidence, for I could see myself already in possession of the million dollars.
"Next morning I arose early, went into the bathroom, read the sermon, then knelt on my knees and asked that my sermon might come to the attention of someone who would supply the needed money.
"While I was praying, I again had that feeling of assurance that the money would be forthcoming. In my excitement, I walked out without my sermon, and did not discover the oversight until I was in my pulpit and about ready to begin delivering it.
"It was too late to go back for my notes, and what a blessing that I couldn't go back! Instead, my own subconscious mind yielded the material I needed. When I arose to begin my sermon, I closed my eyes, and spoke with all my heart and soul of my dreams. I not only talked to my audience, but I fancy I talked also to God. I told what I would do with a million dollars if that amount were placed in my hands. I described the plan I had for organizing a great educational institution, where young people would learn to do practical things, and at the same time develop their minds.
"When I had finished and sat down, a man slowly arose from his seat, about three rows from the rear, and made his way towards the pulpit. I wondered what he was going to do. He came into the pulpit, extended his hand, and said, "Reverend, I liked your sermon. I believe you can do everything you said you would, if you had a million dollars. To prove that I believe in you and your sermon, if you will come to my office tomorrow morning, I will give you the million dollars. My name is Phillip D. Armour."
Young Gunsaulus went to Mr. Armour's office and the million dollars was presented to him. With the money, he founded the Armour Institute of Technology.
That is more money than the majority of preachers ever see in an entire lifetime, yet the thought impulse back of the money was created in the young preacher's mind in a fraction of a minute. The necessary million dollars came as a result of an idea. Back of the idea was a DESIRE which young Gunsaulus had been nursing in his mind for almost two years.
Observe this important fact... HE GOT THE MONEY WITHIN THIRTY-SIX HOURS AFTER HE REACHED A DEFINITE DECISION WITHIN HIS OWN MIND TO GET IT, AND DECIDED UPON A DEFINITE PLAN FOR GETTING IT!
There was nothing new or unique about young Gunsaulus' vague thinking about a million dollars, and weakly hoping for it. Others before him, and many since his time, have had similar thoughts. But there was something very unique and different about the decision he reached on that memorable Saturday, when he put vagueness into the background and definitely said, "I WILL get that money within a week!"
God seems to throw Himself on the side of a man who knows exactly what he wants, if he is determined to get JUST THAT! Moreover, the principle through which Dr. Gunsaulus got his million dollars is still alive! It is available to you! This universal law is as workable today as it was when the young preacher made use of it so successfully.
If you got something out of this story, then why not read the rest of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich? This book has revolutionized many, many lives since it was first written, and continues to do so.
