Great book. The techniques are very helpful. Like a lot of LOA books there's a lot of material. I've personally seen my finances grow after reading this book and I currently have much more in the bank than I had before I started the techniques. I honestly haven't done all the techniques like I want to and my finances have still grown. I'm looking forward to incorporating more techniques in my life and seeing my finances grow further.
Of course, you are responsible for pointing yourself in the direction of your dreams and working towards them. Effort is a big part of the equation, but it’s not all of it. You not only have to work hard for your money, you have to feel worthy of having it. How many of us doubt ourselves and our abilities to succeed? It’s not just about working harder, it’s about working smarter and being confident in yourself, your knowledge and your competency. Most of us miss this subtlety and end up in an arduous struggle against ourselves. But once you believe in yourself, you can create the life of your dreams by bending the “rules of the game” to your advantage.
As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I learned some time back that no one was responsible for my happiness but me. When I look at the big scheme of things, I’ve got it great. I may not have much but everything I have I own. I’ve struggled from time to time with money issues too since coming online not sure if I could make my bills but I always did. So I know that it’s not the end of the world if I’m late with a payment, although I rarely am. I’m obsessed with everything being on time. LOL!!!
The basic rule of the Law Of Attraction: Like Attracts Like. So how are you going to attract money if you have a mindset of a poor person? Acting wealthy doesn’t mean that you have to spend a lot of money (that you don’t have at this point). It just means that you can allow yourself to window shop for expensive things, plan amazing holidays, treat yourself to small luxury things every once in awhile.
This applies to all kinds of situations where your emotion is somehow associated with money. A few days ago, I received a lot of money unexpectedly and I found myself saying “Do I really deserve this much money”, “Am I worthy of getting this much money”, it is strange, isn’t it? I have a personal development blog where I talk about building positive money mindset and I am saying such things to myself.
One reason she was bad at this game was that she was tuning out the possible existence of coins everywhere she walked. She just didn’t think there could be that many coins hiding in plain sight. By demonstrating to her that the coins were indeed there and that she was simply failing to notice them, I helped shift her beliefs. She stopped thinking of the game as something outside her control (relying on luck or chance), and she began thinking of what she could control (her open-mindedness and attentiveness).
If you have an online bank account, open up several small savings accounts to run alongside. Most banks will let you open a savings account with as little as $1. If this isn’t workable for you then use the old favorite – money jars. Every time our friend gets paid, she divides 10 percent of her earnings around her savings accounts. So she might have one account labeled ‘gifts’, another marked ‘car’ and another ‘vacation’.
Within the first week of not really trying “to hard” I received a check in the mail for over $270.00 dollars for a “loan refund” from a loan company that had since left my city. I was shocked because after I had paid the loan off, I didn’t believe I was entitled to any refund. I had closed the loan years ago. That was an eye opener!! However, I still had my doubts that it was related to my “movie” as instructed in the book.
I’ve been broke before – and I mean REALLY broke. My lowest point was when I just had around 70 cents (yes, cents) in my purse in order to feed my children for a couple of days. I remember walking around the supermarket wondering how the hell I would make it to the next welfare pay day. I purchased a no-name bag of plain pasta and the kids could eat it for dinner and lunch with some tomato sauce I had in the cupboard. The pain was so embarrassing that I struck a deal with the Universe that I would never allow myself to go there again.
If you approach money like a power source of its own, then by trying to manifest it, you’re really trying to overpower it, and in such a contest you’ll usually lose. That contest, however, is completely internal — and pretty much insane. It’s like trying to arm wrestle yourself. How can you win? It’s a false reality you’re projecting because you aren’t ready to fully wield your own power yet.
Be and feel happy now. When you feel happy, you draw more money and more opportunities to receive money to you. You’ll find things you normally buy are suddenly cheaper or on sale, like groceries or gas. You’ll find new opportunities to make more money…such as being asked to participate in a craft fair where you can turn your jewelry making hobby into a side business.
That’s because no matter how successful you are during meditation and visualization at communicating your goals to the universe, the minute you come back to “normal” reality and start thinking negative or limiting thoughts about how much money you can generate or have in your life, you send a much more dominant message to the universe about your expectations around financial abundance (or lack of it!)
Ultimately, you don’t need money to create certain types of feelings, and you can create them now. What can you do now that gives you a greater sense of freedom? Perhaps it is learning to say no more, being more selective with how you spend your time, or scaling back on commitments. What can you do to feel fulfilled now? Maybe it is doing some sort of volunteer work, or making time for a hobby.
For example, if you want a serious relationship, yet you invest time in transient relationships, you won't get what you actually want. Reality will give you transient relationships, or experiences, because that's the situation you're "in tune with", i.e. matching with, spending your attention on. Your "relationship space" will be occupied by transient relationships, instead of a serious one, which will not have the opportunity to manifest.
5. Blessings - All neutral situation or circumstances have the 100% potentiality to express negative or positive, depending on your interpretation, attitude and action. If you are willing to not only look at the situations as neutral when something seems negative, but go one step further see it as a blessing in disguise. This allows you to do something that you could not have done before and begin to look at that approach. You will then, even by willing to look for the positive interpretation, allow those positive interpretations to present themselves most blatantly.
Clean up your money act. If your dominant money vibration has been fear, lack, worry or avoidance, it's time to create a better relationship with money. Create financial integrity by cleaning up what needs to be addressed. Whatever bothers you or keeps you up at night – that's what this one is about. Apologize, clear things up, do the research, make arrangements, speak your mind - do whatever it takes to recover your financial integrity.
I started with manifesting pennies in the Summer of 2006. Then I graduated to nickels, dimes, and quarters. I focused on quarters for several weeks. Then I progressed to dollars to $100 to $1000 to $10K to $50K. Overall it took less than a year to go from manifesting pennies to manifesting $50K. After that point I become more interested in non-monetary manifesting and had some especially fun times with manifesting in my social life — friends, mentors, and other yumminess. In fact, I honestly feel that manifesting money is a bit boring compared to all the other cool stuff you can manifest. It’s like playing a video game and obsessing over the score. That can be fun for a while, but eventually you want to focus on more interesting aspects of the game world.
Another of the best ways to attract money is to ensure you spend the wealth you have on things that really matter. When you live in a way that aligns with your values, you get much money pleasure from spending and develop a much more positive relationship with money. And when you view money in a positive, loving way, you’ll attract more money instantly!
Sorry for this being so long but I just wanted to share because I know it can motivate someone to keep pushing and keep trying. Like i said, I was down to my last and The Higher Power made a way for me to eat, and get around. You have to trust and believe. I know it’s easy to say than do but you have to go within and find a way. Keep your mind and feelings focused on what you want. When something negative pops up, I revise what is said in my head or I would listen to music until i felt better. I’m going to keep this up and WHEN something more amazing happens, I’ll definitely share it with you guys. Many blessing to you..
1. Beliefs - Through your beliefs and definitions, you create your reality. Your definitions and beliefs determine what kind of feelings and thoughts and behaviors you exhibit, that then re-enforce your reality that you have created with your belief. Beliefs are the blueprint, the first step and the definition is the key, not just the thought. Some people interchange those concepts of the law of attraction and say thoughts create your reality. What they really mean is the basic fundamental belief creates the reality. What you believe is true is what you experience. Then the thoughts go hand in hand to re-enforce them.
5. Imagine. Use your imagination of what you would feel like if you were wealthy. Exactly how much money would you like to have. When? Make it crystal clear into your mind and then work with the feeling of already having it now. I recommend this should be done on a daily basis for at least half an hour, but again, do what works best for you. Remember that you want to do this regularly and you want this to be a fun thing, not a chore.
Paychecks make you happy, while bills made you put on your cranky pants with annoyance and anxiety. You need to rewire this in order to get out of your own way. Each time you feel pissed off when a bill gets sent to you then you actively choose to block the flow of abundance and you’re inviting MORE BILLS and more expenses. Nothing is as expensive as an attitude that blocks the flow of prosperity. Learn to LOVE your money. After all, it’s just energy.
