I love my family and friends but they are constantly reminding me of how much money i don't have while i am busy trying to manafest wealth for myself. I don't know how to deal with them without affending them or having them basiclly call me crazy. I keep telling them i will win publisher's clearing house because i just have a feeling of overwhelming luck and intuition. i can see the prze patrol coming to my haouse with a big check for $10,000,000. it's not unrealistic to me because i know anything is possible if you belive. So how can i deal with the negative people without affending them???
Never forget that the lunatics are running the asylum, but the lunatics obviously don't realize that they're lunatics or we wouldn't spend trillions preparing for war :-)
There are many subjects of discussion outside of conscious reality creation that you can discuss with anyone. These days, I can talk to most of my friends about the things and subjects I now believe in, but not all of them and I never bring these subjects up with associates or strangers unless asked to do so.
If someone wants to discuss these subjects with you, but then proceeds to ridicule or argue with you, make an effort to change the subject. If that fails tell them directly that you don't wish to discuss these subjects at this time. If they still persist, show them your back. In other words turn about face 180° and walk away. I do this quite often, you owe it to yourself.
It really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. And if they're offended, what exactly is it within them that's offended? It's just their own ego, so the upside is that your seemingly negative action may even help them to begin understanding something spiritual.
Like Jai says, God will replace these people with others more akin to where you currently are... But you have to be the catalyst, by refusing to pay attention to those people, things and subjects that you no longer wish to experience.
Later on you will show your family and friends, through your own example, the truth of what you now believe. In the meantime, not much coherent conversation and understanding can take place between a sane person and a lunatic 8-)

I am reminded of the AA saying here: If you do not want to slip, stay out of slippery places.
What this means to me is that when people are negative about me or my life, I have to stay out of their way as much as I can. I am trying to change my life, and I have a family full of negative and judgmental people. I cannot handle them so I do not talk to them about my spiritual beliefs, growth or my private, inner workings.
This may sound hard and harsh, but this is something I have gone through. I know that God will replace these people with people who understand me- it just takes time. Manifest new friends!! Remember to pray for these people, though. Christ said to Love your enemies. Pray that they grow, and be a good example to them.
Also, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!

After reading all the answers here I couldn't resist the desire to share my experience. I love all the answers here for they are all practical and can be applied in the real world.
I love bumping into people who ridicule the entire notion of the power of manifestation or the power of within. Because it reminds me of the moment when the people on earth still believed that the earth was flat when a few brave souls discovered that the earth was round and began to talk about it.
The roundness of the earth was not dependent on its inhabitants believing that it is round. It stayed round regardless of what the population believed.
The subjects we discuss here are real for those who experience it and cross over to knowing it is true instead of believing it is true. Once that switch is made, the ridicule of others becomes more a curiosity to discover their point of view, instead of a need to defend what we already know to be true.
When someone disagrees with me, I agree with them & say "If I were in your shoes, with the evidence available to me, I too would be having the opinion that you have. I would disagree with me as well"

If the question is 'how to deal with the negative people without offending them'. Try smiling as you look them in the eye, searching for any heart.

You're not going to like my answer.
Quit playing Publisher's Clearing House.
There are literally hundreds of opportunities all around you that have a high degree of probability of succeeding. Publisher's Clearing House is not one of them.
If you don't believe me, ask the people who specialize in reality-creation and manifestation: Abraham-Hicks. One fellow who went to one of their seminars asked basically the same question you did. His question was, "How do I get a million dollars, without working for it?" Abraham said to him, "Well, you have a problem. You said you wanted a million dollars, but then you immediately offered a contradictory thought: I don't want to work for it."
A better question to ask is: "How can I get a million dollars, in a way that is compatible with me?"
The problems with you relying on Publisher's Clearing House for your financial future:
If you don't believe me about number four, ask Bashar. He basically says that, since you can't win the lottery by manipulating the numbers, you must shift your reality to the alternate universe (among millions) that does have the correct numbers.
He then goes on to say that learning about abundance is more important than winning the lottery. And he's right. Learn about true abundance, and you won't need the lottery.
Money isn't the only way for the universe to provide. There are many other ways; money is only one way. By focusing on money alone, you limit yourself (and the universe) to only those ways that involve money, and you close your mind off from all of the other ways that the universe wants to provide for you.
THOUGHT is the creative power, or the impelling force which causes the creative power to act; thinking in a Certain Way will bring riches to you, but you must not rely upon thought alone, paying no attention to personal action. That is the rock upon which many otherwise scientific metaphysical thinkers meet shipwreck—the failure to connect thought with personal action.
We have not yet reached the stage of development, even supposing such a stage to be possible, in which man can create directly from Formless Substance without nature's processes or the work of human hands; man must not only think, but his personal action must supplement his thought.
By thought you can cause the gold in the hearts of the mountains to be impelled toward you; but it will not mine itself, refine itself, coin itself into double eagles, and come rolling along the roads seeking its way into your pocket.
Under the impelling power of the Supreme Spirit, men's affairs will be so ordered that some one will be led to mine the gold for you; other men's business transactions will be so directed that the gold will be brought toward you, and you must so arrange your own business affairs that you may be able to receive it when it comes to you. Your thought makes all things, animate and inanimate, work to bring you what you want; but your personal activity must be such that you can rightly receive what you want when it reaches you. You are not to take it as charity, nor to steal it; you must give every man more in use value than he gives you in cash value.

Sometimes Jesus said tell no man..Wisdom is knowing when to share your heart’s Desire or keep it in the Spiritual and just walking in your Prosperity now.
Well said T.

God helps those who help themselves.
And I have serious doubts about faith moving mountains. I have yet to see evidence of a person who moved a mountain. Imagine spending your whole life contemplating moving Mt Shasta (or whatever).. how would you feel when you reach 103 and its still there.. ??
BE positive but be practical too. Rewards of all kinds have to be earned, karmically or otherwise.

I recommend staying away from negative people and that includes family and friends. It doesn't mean be cold shoulder or frustrated. Just pleasantly excuse yourself and leave the room, nicely change the subjects to happier and more positive discussions, Keep a good attitude and remember it isn't you that they are negative about, it's the subject of manifestation that they are opinionated about.

be your self avoid getting stuck in situation that they will pin you down! that mean give them what they can handles! if they can't handle you don't be there! and if you can help them out to see what they are missing! by doing so they will see that your view point is not that crazy!and will start to accept you as you are and not as they think you should be to make them happy! as for money it is needed in this world but the journey is better then the target enjoy the journey the target you will reach eventually!
