PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #1: YOU DESERVE ABUNDANCE
Prosperity Laws of Attraction #1: We all live in an abundant universe.
It just takes tapping into the energy of prosperity. As you read this section remember… you deserve an abundant life. Believe it.
Know it. Sit with the knowledge.
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #2: NEGATIVE THOUGHTS DON’T SERVE YOU
We all want to be free of the struggle over money. Sometimes the mental chatter we have playing over and over in our heads doesn’t align with our desires for money, abundance, and prosperity. Have you ever been told or thought:
* Be practical
* Life is a struggle
* Rich people are greedy
* I’ll never get out of debt
* Money is the root of all evil
* There isn’t enough to go around
* You should get a job with security
* You can’t be spiritual and have money
* You don’t want to be a starving artist
* That’s a nice dream, but, you should be practical
* The economy’s so bad right now, we’ll never get ahead
* Artists and (insert your dream here) can’t make real money
These are all thoughts and sayings that pervade our cultural thinking. But they are surest way of pushing away the abundance that is your birthright. Now consider these sayings and how they make you feel:
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #3: TAPPING INTO POSITIVE THINKING BEARS FRUIT
* Follow your Bliss
* Abundance is all around you
* We live in an abundant universe
* The law of attraction is always working
* You were put here to achieve your dreams
* Do what you love and the money will follow
* Your current thoughts are creating your future life
* Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve
Now compare the two lists and how you felt when you read both of them.
The first list probably brought up feelings of despair and sadness, feelings that you better work hard and if you’re lucky you might get enough to retire on without relying on government assistance and food stamps.
The second list probably inspired feelings of hope, inspiration, and well-being, and the belief that you CAN achieve your dreams. It’s the difference between these two lists that you want to focus on.
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #4: EXAMINE YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT MONEY
If you are playing negative tracks in your head all day, it’s the opposite of
attracting prosperity into your life, instead you are actively pushing abundance away from you. So examine these two lists and explore how they make you feel. Did any of the quotes strike a primal cord in you?
Examine them and see if you can remember a time when you were trained to believe this. Were you like many people who were raised being told that life is about hard work, getting a well paying job that you hate, and working it until retirement? Or were you lucky enough to have parents who said “Do what you love and the money will follow?”
The first step to attracting prosperity into your life is exploring your current viewpoint on money, and eliminating the negative prosperity chatter. This step can take time. Review the lists, think about your inner associations with money. Insights might come to you two weeks from now, while you’re driving in rush hour traffic. Send the message to yourself that you are actively retraining your belief systems about money.
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #5: SET REAL GOALS FOR YOURSELF
The second step is determining what you WANT to be attracting into your life. If it’s unclear to you, it will be unclear to the universe. It could be:
* Paying off your debts
* Saving enough to retire on
* Buying a new pair of shoes
* Having enough money to go back to school
* Having enough money for a trip to Hawaii
* Feeling that you no longer need to worry over money
* Having a meaningful career instead of a job you hate
* Freeing yourself from the credit card merry-go-round
* Saving enough for a new car, or to pay of your mortgage
Spend some time reviewing exactly what you want. Be very clear and specific with your desires or else who knows what will come your way! As an extremely odd example, I once accidentally manifested a pug dog. I’d
been thinking and talking about pugs non-stop for some time. One day, out in the middle of the woods on our 5 acres of land in rural Arkansas, guess what wandered up to our cabin. A purebred pug. No one claimed him and suddenly I had a lovely, adorable, pricey pug who didn’t fit into my life at the time. (Our dog Sunny played too roughly with him, but we found him the best home with a friend who pampers him beyond belief!)
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #6: WORK WITHIN YOUR ABUNDANCE BLUEPRINT
Sure, everyone wants to win the lottery, but it’s harder to convince our minds that it’s possible. Consider a few small goals to increase your confidence that fit within your current abundance blueprint.
For example, when we first started doing a lot of prosperity work we had a new age show coming up. We did positive affirmations to receive three hundred dollars in sales on the first day of the show. It worked! (and yes, we were surprised) We got almost exactly three hundred dollars. The second day of the show we upped the ante to six hundred dollars in sales. Sure enough, we were within twenty dollars of the six hundred dollar mark.
However, on the third day of the show we did affirmations for one thousand dollars in sales. It was too much. Our belief systems couldn’t conceive of it, and the universe couldn’t bring us that amount in sales, because we didn’t beleive in our innermost core that it was possible. We ended up a couple hundred dollars short of our goal on the last day.
So when working on your specific prosperity goals, start with something within your financial blueprint, something you believe is possible. This could be an extra hundred dollars in the mail, or enough money for a daytrip. Once you’ve achieved these goals it will be easier to envision and achieve larger goals.
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #7: DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN
The third step is taking action: Follow intuitive nudges from the universe,
do positive affirmation techniques, abundance techniques, and look for subtle signs from the universe about what steps you should take to achieve abundance.
Follow up with concrete steps as well. Determine what you need and then make the changes to manifest it in your life. For example, if you really need a little bit of extra money coming in every month, realize that you can make that happen. Consider simple side businesses to bring in a bit of cash, take a part time job, or cut back on expenses.
It’s odd, but when the universe sees you taking action steps to bring about change, the universe sees that your actions are in alignment with your goals. That’s when prosperity consciousness starts flowing…
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #8: BE PATIENT AND POSITIVE
Changing your mental blueprint about money can take time. Give it time to work. Don’t give up too soon. Saying a wealth affirmation for a week will start to change your energetic relationship with money, but it’s just a start. Living in alignment with the laws of attraction is a lifetime journey, not something to try out for a few days and then give up on.
PROSPERITY LAWS OF ATTRACTION #9: YOU DESERVE ABUNDANCE
All right, this was law #1 as well. However, it’s the starting point and the most important factor of all. If you don’t believe you deserve abundance and prosperity, the universe will have a hard time convincing you. Really step back, and take some time to think about your money belief systems, your dreams, your goals, your action plan, and the vibrations that you send out on a daily basis. As an old friend Daniel Mcqueen used to say, “Sit with it.”
Many people feel guilty asking for their desires. The Universe, God, Buddha, Allah, Divine Power, whatever you choose to call it, wants you to be happy, wants you to succeed. Release your guilt and know that you deserve abundance in your life…
