The law of attraction and the law of abundance both hinge on our ability to believe we are worthy of an abundant and joyous life. By setting intentions and believing they will come to pass, we give the Universe or a higher power permission to work in our lives and bring our hopes and dreams to pass. Our success in manifesting the life of our dreams can be hindered or enhanced according to the quality of our beliefs.  Let these Richard Bach quotes guide you in your quest for a more abundant life.


“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it however.” ― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Thought: Manifesting the life of your dreams is not without effort. You must work steadily towards your goals, but believing that you can achieve them is the most important step. If you can dream it, you can achieve it – but you must be willing to believe in your dreams and put in the effort it requires to reach them..


“Believe you know all the answers, and you know all the answers. Believe you’re a master, and you are.” ― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Thought: When you believe you have the power and skills to bring your dreams to pass, you begin to act according to those beliefs. It is your belief in your abilities and the power of your dreams that creates your new reality.


“If you really want to remove a cloud from your life, you do not make a big production of it; you just relax and remove it from your thinking. That’s all there is to it.” ― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Thought: When you focus on the obstacles in your path, you give them power over your life. Look past the obstacles and focus on the goal and you will find a new path opens for you.


“Argue for you limitations and sure enough they are yours.” ― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Thought: You give power to obstacles in your path when you begin to believe they have power over your life. You must let go of negative believing to break the bond your faulty thinking has created. Let go of the thought that people and circumstances control your ability to succeed.


“To bring anything into your life, imagine that it is already there.”― Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever: A True Love Story

Thought: Seeing yourself accomplishing your dreams and goals is vital to your success, as it forces the mind and Universe to work together to bring it to pass. Seeing the results in your mind’s eye is the most active form of believing.


“Happiness is a choice. It is not always an easy one.” ― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Thought: When you believe you deserve joy and happiness in your life, you then have the power to claim it. You must, however, let go of limiting beliefs that try to convince you that you are not enough and do not deserve happiness.
