Esther Hicks says that when you are focusing on gratitude, you often still have some focus on the struggle or what you don’t want. For instance, if you are grateful that you just made enough money to pay your bills, you are always focused on the fact that you barely made enough money to pay your bills. That causes you to have a lower vibration where it’s hard to attract what you do want into your life.
Anyone who is stuck in indolence and debts can notice that he has come to this by a gradual and systematic refusal to do what he likes and what he believes in as a whole. That's why we must always do the things that truly fill us with joy, and for that, you don’t usually need much money. That's what is waiting for us here and now, what all our loved ones are waiting for. It always begins with what is available, here and now, from a small to an ever-increasing thing.

So, what changes can you make in your life right now that would make you feel better about your financial situation? Is your lack of a savings account gnawing at you? What could you do to start padding it a bit more? Are you using your credit cards a bit too liberally, when you should really be using cash? Do you have any expenses now that you can eliminate or reduce? Is it high time for a budget? Could you start cooking at home more rather than eating out five nights a week?
Lots of offers for car financing, credit cards, and other sorts of junk—but then I happened upon something quite interesting. There was a check for almost 400 dollars reimbursing me for some credit card monitoring service I had used on an account I probably opened at least a decade ago, and closed out about five years ago. Apparently, the company they were using wasn’t providing the service to everyone paying for it, and Citibank was refunding the fees.
Initially this surprised her. She could dismiss it as luck… or as some kind of trick… or as a momentary lapse of her part. Then when it kept happening, it began to frustrate her. I helped her shift that frustration to amusement by pointing out that she was really good at finding bottle caps and smudges, and we had some laughs about that. She just needed to adjust her mind a little bit more to notice the coins.
When I first read this a few days ago, I thought what a joke! Smelling money? Like that’s going to do anything. It seemed so hokey! I thought I’d try it just to prove you wrong and come back and tell you how stupid this is. So I started smelling money every hour. I couldn’t stop laughing the first few times it I felt so stupid. I also made a list every night of all the reasons I loved money.
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.
When you want to become a money magnet, you must understand that money has a relationship with gratitude. Because the thought of money either makes you feel positive or negative most of the time. If it makes you feel positive then that’s great. But if it makes you feel negative because your focus is on the lack then this is where Gratitude works like magic.
For individuals of faith prayer and meditation are important components to searching for what we want, but even with that the specifics are important. Just saying you wan to be rich is not a need. That's a desire. If we are focus too much on the money and not enough on the reasons we won't be able to see the result manifested for us. We have to be clear in our intent and walking purposely in order to be rewarded. Doesn't mean you will be a millionaire, but it does mean that you can live your life without allowing money to be what motivates you. 12 Ways You Can Absolutely Make Money Online
