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.
OMG! OMG! OMG! This is the truth! I recently read The Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks and have been following their teachings almost to the T. I have managed to manifest so many amazing things into my life other than what I really want and that is money. I put my disappointment out to the Universe and it responded immediately with a Google search which lead me to your site. I realized, based on your instruction, that the old self talk in regards to money was still present. I had not allowed myself to develop a relationship with money because of the fear initially taught to me in my youth. So I followed your directions as best as possible. I borrowed $5 dollars from our daughters piggy bank because we were flat broke, lol, and began smelling it, developing a mental and emotional connection to the money. My heart started to beat really fast because I was so emotional about the whole experience. I went to my Thoughts Book and wrote down why I loved money and a breakthrough occurred. I really did love all of the things money allowed me to do and began to conjure up the feelings of joy that would stem from having more of it. So to make a long story short, my husband just came home with a $1500 check from his school and told me someone randomly stopped him in the hallway and told him he had a check waiting for him in the office. Thank you for this breakthrough. The swiftness of this monies arrival tells me that my manifestation is strong and I need to keep doing what I am doing. I wish you all peace, joy, and abundant manifestation in all your days to come.
I realized that I could choose not to worry about my mounting debt that came from using my credit cards—it certainly wasn’t going to kill me. When I started making money again, I paid it off. I realized I could choose to focus on the fact that my needs were being taken care of—even if not in the most ideal way—and not that I currently had no income.
Was the thought that you could attract money one of the main things that drew you to the Law of Attraction? If so, you’re not alone. Almost everyone wants to find out how to attract more money using Law of Attraction techniques. However, maybe you’ve since discovered that techniques to attract money are more confusing than you expected. Alternatively, perhaps you think you’ve been doing all the right things but you still haven’t quite figured out how to use the Law of Attraction to get money.
I’ll bet a bunch of you reading this are arguing this point with me right now in that beautiful head of yours, but remember what I said earlier about us attracting based on what we feel and believe. So, if you really want to improve your financial situation as quickly and painlessly as possible, you need to start shifting your belief that money trouble is the worst thing that can happen to you, that some horrible fate will befall you if get behind on your payments.
Approaching money from a point of neediness or scarcity will prevent you from manifesting money. You're much better off approaching it from a point of curiosity and excitement. Think of how a child views the world – everything is new and fun. The world is filled with possibilities. Embrace that state of childlike wonder. The results are pretty spectacular!
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.
