Step 1 - ASK
Decide what it is you want and make a command to the Universe. It's like having the Universe as your catalogue. Don't be afraid to think big. Let the universe know what you want. The Universe responds to your thoughts. "I am a New York Times best selling author" for example. You can ask for something material or more love, more joy, international travel, what ever you desire.
Step 2 - BELIEVE
Now the fun begins. Visualize. Start at the end result. Believe that what ever you asked for is already yours. Begin to feel it. Picture yourself receiving that phone call, throwing your arms in the air in celebration, fast and furious fist pumps, what ever you might do when your dreams come true. Start to hear the sounds of friends congratulating you, smell the smells that may be present. Do what ever you can to make it seem as real as possible. Have unwavering faith that this will come to pass. Trick is to only visualize once a day for 5-10 minutes, then let it go and just feel good about it.
Step 3 - RECEIVE
Ask once, believe you have received and all you have to do to receive what you desire is to feel good. Don't let others dissuade you. In fact, sometimes it's best not to tell others about your dream at all. No need to defend what you want to anyone. When you feel good you are on the frequency of receiving. You cannot receive when you feel bad and are giving off low frequencies.
What could possibly be easier than that!
