A powerful practice of abundance that you can consciously incorporate into your daily life is the "vacuum cleaner meditation." Before going to sleep, take a moment to stop and round up everything that you have been thinking about — your unfinished business, your plans for tomorrow, something you left on your desk, or whatever — and just imagine that you have a psychic vacuum cleaner that can pull up everything and let it disappear. Being preoccupied with what we think we have to do or remember prevents us from receiving new and powerful possibilities. This clearing exercise can leave you open enough to receive new ideas and information.
