Why the New Moon?
The new moon is a sort of energetic doorway for manifesting your dreams and making them real. It's a time of fresh starts and new beginnings, a time for setting intentions and focusing on the things you want to develop, cultivate, or increase in your life. The idea is to use the energy of the New Moon to plant a seed or wish into motion and watch it bloom throughout the rest of the moon cycle.
Writing a New Moon Abundance Check is a way of creating financial abundance, although you can also write the check to improve a relationship, increase your health, or anything else you want to improve or increase. An Abundance Check is a blank check from the Universe. When you write these checks, you are aligning your intention with the Universe and sending a message to the Universe and your subconscious mind that you are open and receptive to receiving abundance!
Whether you consider this a practical exercise in intention or a Divine experience, go ahead and write that check, set something in motion, and see what unfolds!
Writing an Abundance Check
I have found two different methods of writing an abundance check, so I will present both ways of writing them . . . you pick which method works best for you.
Method 1: The Traditional Way
There is a traditional manner, which has been handed down and must be followed.
If you do not have a checking account, you can draw a check on a piece of paper and fill it out in the same way. The results will be the same . . . more abundance for you.
Here is how to write the check:
- Within 24 hrs after a New Moon, take a check where it says "Pay to — " and write in your name.
- In the little box on the same line where you would fill in a dollar amount write "Paid in Full." This opens you to unlimited abundance.
- On the line underneath your name, where you would write out a dollar amount, also write "Paid in Full." The Universe knows what needs to be paid.
- Sign the check: "The Law of Abundance."
Do not put a date or a specific dollar amount on the check. Put it in a safe place and forget about it. The Universe will take it from there.
To truly benefit from the power of these checks, get in the habit of writing them routinely every month. Write them with full expectation of receiving abundance! This method of writing the check gives your subconscious mind and Higher Self the freedom to bring you exactly the right level of abundance, in the perfect way, in the perfect amount that you are ready to receive.
Whether you are asking for money, new clients for your business, or free time for yourself, the Paid in Full part is your sign that the Genie of the Universe has ALREADY responded to your request. According to the Law of Attraction, if you fully expect something to happen (without doubt), then the Universe has to give it to you!
Method 2: Writing With Intention
Here are the steps to writing an intention abundance check:
- Take a check out of your checkbook, or create your own check.
- In the "Pay to the order of," write your full legal name.
- Write in the date (remember, you should be writing it within 24 hours of the new moon).
- Think of an amount of money you'd like to manifest for yourself, maybe the amount you need for a financial obligation or maybe the amount for a fun vacation. Choose an amount that feels abundant but also possible, an amount you can truly visualize yourself receiving over the next 30 days.
- Write out the amount in the "pay exactly" area.
- In the memo line, you can write such things as "above and beyond expected income", "paid in full", or other things like that.
- Sign the check "Law of Abundance".
- (Optional if you are making your own check) Where the account number should be, write 000 for God, 333 for the Ascended Masters, 444 for the Angels, and your birthday. So if your birthday is March 29, 1981, your account number would be 00033344403291981.
Don't focus on needing the money, as that sends out the vibration of lack. Instead, think of this amount of money as adding to your prosperity. Imagine that you already have this money, put your imagination to work, and use all of your senses. See yourself spending the money, smell it, and feel the texture of the money; the more details you visualize, the better. Feel abundant and radiate that feeling out into the universe; as you do, you will become a magnet, attracting whatever you are focused on!
Energize Your New Moon Check of Abundance
Then Let It Go . . .
After you have filled out the check, take a moment and picture yourself receiving the money. Allow yourself to really FEEL the gratitude and joy of already having the money. It's important to be able to really put yourself into the belief of knowing that this can happen for you . . . that in fact, it already HAS happened to you, at least in the world of probability. You may also want to visualize white light around the check, energizing it and transmuting any negative energy or thoughts about receiving abundance.
Now you can put the check in a special place, like an alter, or put it somewhere out of sight where you won't be giving it attention. Once you have written the check, you have done your work by setting your intention to create more abundance, let the universe take it from there. It's important not to hold any attachments to the results of this exercise; simply acknowledge that the money will begin flowing into your life immediately thereafter and trust that the Universe will find the easiest way for it to do so. The Universe does its job better without interference from you!
At the time of the next new moon, take out your abundance check and review how much abundance you have received in the past month. Acknowledge any money that comes your way with gratitude, including any expected income, as this will send messages to the Universe that you are ready to receive even more of what you have.
Write a new check each month, set new intentions, and know that the Genie of the Universe is doing your bidding!
Writing abundance checks is an exercise in using the Law of Attraction. Combining your intentions, beliefs, and imagination with the power created by the energies of the new moon, anything can happen . . . or can it?
Jim Carrey Wrote Himself a $10 Million Check
The famous story of the Law of Abundance Check comes from Jim Carrey, the movie actor. He wrote himself a fake $10 million check for "acting services rendered," at a time when he was a struggling artiste. He was specific in the "what" and not the "how":
- He specified $10 million.
- He dated the check "Thanksgiving 1995" in the year 1987.
- He spelled out the what by adding the words "for acting services rendered".
For years, he carried the check around in his wallet and visualized having that money. Just before Thanksgiving 1995, Jim Carrey found out that he was going to make ten million dollars with the movie Dumb and Dumber. He then placed the check in the casket with his father because it had been their dream together.
Jim used the intention method of writing his check, stating how the money would manifest, when it would manifest, and how much would manifest. Obviously, this method worked for him, but I have to wonder how things would have turned out if he had used the other method . . . leaving the how, when and how much up to the Universe? Hmmm . . . I guess we will never know.

I did this for a specific amount that I needed to pay an unexpected medical bill, and it manifested in two weeks! How should I properly dispose of the abundance check that I wrote? I don't want to seem greedy by holding on to it... but I don't want to do anything to reverse it either! Thanks in advance.
Roszain on March 22, 2014:

im going to try for the first time with the next new moon
thanks for the awesome lens

Thank you for a wonderful lens!
Maria Burgess from Las Vegas, Nevada on July 18, 2013:
I am willing to try this just because it sounds fun and it wouldn't hurt! I will be doing this on the next new moon. Thank you - cool idea! =)
Dandelia23 on March 02, 2013:
I have done it also! It is amazing how it works.. Of course I didn't ask for big things, but I guess the time has come to ask for more! Your tips were very helpful!
knitstricken on February 13, 2013:
I love this invitation! I accept! :o) Thank you!
suepogson on January 13, 2013:
Certainly going to try! Thanks
Itaya Lightbourne from Topeka, KS on December 08, 2012:
I've done this many times by not specifying a particular amount and would ALWAYS get some unexpected income! It really works for me. I'm going to give it a shot with specific amounts and see what happens. Angel Blessings! :)
KimGiancaterino on November 15, 2012:
I had not heard the Jim Carrey story before. That's very inspiring, and I always knew he'd be a major star.

Okay, I'm getting my check book now . . . :)
anonymous on July 16, 2012:
It works every time...even though there are diffeent variations on how to write the abundance check and when. Don't get caught up on the small variations.As long as you write the your abundance check as approximately as stated after reading the directions on check writing and believe that you will receive shortly. You will definitely receive what has manifested in the universe based on your amount of faith. Just keep doing it and don't forget with each new moon to write another check!
Tangled07 on March 28, 2012:
Wonderful lens :)
I had heard about the abundance check a while back but I never knew that story about Jim Carrey. So touching. Thanks for sharing :)
norma-holt on February 12, 2012:
Never heard of the abundance check before so my eyes have been opened. Blessed and featured on Blessings by Skiesgreem 2012 - where blessed lenses have acumulated in abundance and all have been checked. Also featured on Motivation. Hugs.

Ohh yay the new moon is almost here. I have always been affected by the new moon in a creative way so this is cool to learn about another blessing. Angel blessed to you too!

JebbieBlue on December 08, 2011:
With the next new moon coming on Christmas Eve I am sure that it will send some extra special gifts. I've written an abundance check before, but it was not done during the new moon. When the Christmas Eve new moon comes I'll be writing my check.
CofCJenny LM on October 27, 2011:
Talk about lucky! I came across this lens (thinking it was something to do with cleansing as I did it with a full moon not long ago with my gems) and I am so excited that the new moon just passed yesterday! That means my 24 hours aren't up and I don't have to wait another month. I'm going to start on this asap! Great lens :-)
anonymous on September 01, 2011:
This is a wonderful lens! I'll try doing this in combination with the 30 Day Prosperity Affirmation. Thanks for such wonderful information.
TapIn2U on June 03, 2011:

This is great info! Thanks for sharing!! Just a little FYI - the PRINT button didn't work on your first 'check' link. It COULD be my printer, but could also be on your end. I didn't try the 2nd one, but you may want to double-check it, as well. Thanks again!
resabi on February 16, 2011:
Whether or not I believe this, I appreciate learning about a new kind of positive thinking and I think you did a very good job of presenting the concept. It is an interesting one. Thank you. Blessed.

MargoPArrowsmith on December 12, 2010:
I don't pay much attention to when a new moon is, but that will change.

You have a very interesting concept going on here. You did a fantastic job as it makes me want to read more!!
kare2share on November 12, 2010:
Very interesting concept, and I enjoyed the way that you presented it in such an inspirational tone. Thank you for sharing!
RebeccaE on November 10, 2010:
I believe it, I truly do, and yes I believe it worked ( I tried it, and it did.) An excellent lesson in belief.
anonymous on October 29, 2010:
I have done this after reading what Jim did. My check is on my vision board for only $25,000. I don't need a lot of money, because I'm use to living on little. One day I'm going to be able to cash that amount. It is written!
Heather Burns from Wexford, Ireland on October 06, 2010:
Love this lens, and abundance checks sounds like a fantastic idea. I've heard this idea many times, but I really like the way you explain it.
RebeccaE on September 16, 2010:
loved the story about jim carrey, it is really great, well done, this is such a beautiful lens, keep up the positive work you do here.
anonymous on September 11, 2010:
I enjoy Jim Carry's story and his unwaivering determination. I was wondering if doing this a few days after the new moon makes any difference since we are still in the energy of increase.
RinchenChodron on June 17, 2010:
Thanks for the suggestions. Good lens.
toriphile81 on June 10, 2010:
What a fantastic idea! I really enjoyed the Jim Carey story. I will definitely be giving this a whirl this month.
