Contributor: Greg Kuhn, law of attraction guru and author of How Quantum Physicists Build New Beliefs. The following is excerpted from this highly recommended, super practical law of attraction book.
In June of 2007, I got a phone call from my attorney telling me that she could hold off the banks only until September. After that, foreclosures would ensue and I would be left with no choice but to declare bankruptcy. With a failed rental property business of fifteen rental homes in various stages of unrentable condition, I was a little over $1,000,000 in debt and had n means to repay any of it. And the dilapidated states of these homes meant no one in their right mind was willing to buy them for anything close to their mortgage amounts …
Flash forward to May of 2008. On a Monday afternoon, I got a phone call from my realtor, telling me that the last of my properties was going to be sold and the bank was forgiving all of my remaining debt (just as all but one of the previous ones had). After that phone call, I had finally gotten rid of every single rental property, never had any foreclosures, had no remaining debt, never had to declare bankruptcy, and actually had money in the bank.
How did that happen? Quite simply, it happened for me not because I desired it so badly … It happened for me because I used the process [in my book] to retrain my brain, aligning my beliefs about financial abundance with my desires for it …
While working this process for the first time on financial abundance, I discovered that we are the ones who dream small and play small–not the quantum field. The universe doesn’t know the difference between manifesting a penny on the sidewalk versus manifesting a bank saying, “Greg, we’ll let you sell this property for far less than it’s worth. You don’t need to go bankrupt. And, I tell you what, instead of going bankrupt, why don’t you just forget about this huge loan for which we have you liable, lock, stock, and barrel?”

It’s spirituality for the rest of us
Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?
Why are their results so difficult to replicate?
