If you find a penny, pick it up and say thank you then give it so someone else. Give money regularly to a charity or a cause that you feel close to. Find a way to donate something on a regular bases, even if it is a few dollars. Show the universe that your life is abundant and then say to yourself: "I have enough money to share with those who need it more than I do."
Remember, there are infinite ways to resolve a situation. Even though you’re used to believing that the worst-case scenario always becomes your reality, the best-case scenario has the same potential to come true as the worst-case scenario. They are both imaginary thoughts about the future waiting to be born into reality. You’re the one who tips the scales in the direction of favorable resolution or unfavorable resolution.
For example, I know a few people who were fired and in a very bad spot financially in life. The ones that held on to the belief that they were let go from their job in order to move towards a better job that provided them with more of what they wanted, ended up in a much better place afterward. The Law of Attraction ensured it. But the ones that got down on themselves and believed that the loss of their job reflected who they were, ended up in situations that continued to prove their story.
Ask a good question. Noah St. John offers afformations in place of affirmations, such as: “How did I get so rich?” or “Where is all this money coming from?” Also powerful is the version from Access Consciousness: “How does it get any better than this?” Just asking the question shifts the energy – don't worry about answering it yourself. That's Universe's job. Or consider Abraham's “Wouldn't it be nice if … ?“ where you complete the question with different versions representing abundance. As in, “Wouldn't it be nice if I got a surprise bonus this week? Or “Wouldn't it be nice if that bill got handled all by itself?”
Esther says that financial success is not about hard work, it’s about being in the right alignment of thought. Therefore, adopt the belief that with the right mindset, thoughts, and feelings, you will do what needs to be done to attract wealth into your life. Then, you can start to keep your awareness open for what needs to be done next and let the Law of Attraction bring you the wealth you desire for being in alignment.
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.
Your actions move you towards your desire. While every manifesting situation is different, usually action is a relatively small part of the manifestation process. For example, when I was manifesting the money I needed to pay my car insurance years ago, I didn’t go out and start looking for odd jobs to pay for it. I was sitting at my desk and a telemarketer called. She said, “We are doing product testing in your area. We need some people to come in and test some products. Would you like to do that?” I asked, “How much does it pay?” She said the amount (I forget now how much it was as this happened in 1996 but it was THE EXACT AMOUNT I NEEDED). I said, “I’ll do it!”
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.
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.
Allow the universe to handle the details, and don't be concerned with how the money will manifest. Just focus on the intention by taking guided action. When you receive small amounts of money, do not try to justify it rationally, just be thankful and believe that your intention of manifesting money is finally happening. Slowing in time, you will manifest larger and larger amounts. Making Money, the How-To Way
