The journey of a lifetime begins with a few easy steps.
When we are no longer trapped in these thoughts then we can move on to step one where we acknowledge that we no longer have space for the poverty consciousness and rather open our unconscious thinking to the powerful hope and recognition of change. This doesn’t mean escaping from the reality that we are living in but rather acknowledging our thoughts as real and hence an amazing step that prepares us to get ready to think differently.
With this step we naturally flow to step number two which is affirming our positive thoughts in a practical sense with positive actions not simply to ourselves but also to our family, our friends and our community. Affirming to ourselves that we are rich, we are good at everything, we are physically perfect, we are intelligent and we are always reaching our goal, consciously re-writes our thoughts. Once we do this things begin to take care of themselves so that everything becomes more positive.
The third step is acting out these new positive personal thoughts to create an abundance beyond the positive focus and energise it so that it grows exponentially (e.g. you deserve the best and the abundance keeps growing). Focus upon the growth and the growing rather than the lack.
Step number four is to realise that it is important to keep watch on our thoughts so that we do not sabotage our growth. Perhaps we begin to feel uncomfortable in what we are not used to, that which is new and unknown from previous experiences but stay positive. It is important for you to know that by constantly giving power to something on a mental level whether this be conscious or unconscious that miracles happen.
You will be surprised how often we think about ourselves in a negative sense and how easy it is to empower oneself simply with different thoughts.
It is always easier to recognise and relate to an old pattern which has become a habit but understand that the joy of relating to the flow of who you are carries you to a sense of real abundance that is much more powerful. As someone remarked, “old habits die hard”.
In relation to money we all need to have a relationship with this physical/material aspect because money is everywhere. It dominates our attitudes and cultural sense of who we are whether we believe it to be important or not.
Many of us believe that money is the root of all evil but really it is what money does rather than money itself that creates the negative circle of desire. Perhaps it is better said that it is the lust after money that is the root of all evil and as there is no evil it is perhaps better said that it is the lust after money that is the root of all the confusion that we face in today’s world and the suffering that it creates in individuals.
When we desire money to fulfill needs then we forget that these needs can more easily be fulfilled by trust, love and sharing rather than by spitefully keeping large amounts of money/material wealth in our pocket.
If we use the material to evolve in a more balanced way we realise that money is just another aspect of the energy that we are made of, made visible in a form that we can more easily relate to. Our energy takes on many forms like love, compassion and wellbeing in this physical world. If money becomes an extension of this then it can be another form of abundance.
It is not bad to have more love or more time or more space or more resources that help us to experience ourselves in a more beautiful way and that help us to be freely abundant. Enjoy the gifts of nature such as good health, pure air, sunshine and the amazing beauties that are free for everyone to experience.
As we free ourselves, we free our thoughts to occupy a new space and notice things that seem invisible to others and by ignoring what once got in the way of such beauty we can focus on the beauty itself.
A lack of wealth is simply an opportunity in disguise.
Financial barriers can pave your road to success but only if you believe and trust yourself to walk on this road by being helpful to others and thus creating more abundance in the energy field that is around you and the sense of who you are.
If you focus on manifesting money alone this limits the real abundance that the universe can provide for you. If you look for personal quantities to put into your pocket then you miss out on the abundant universal quantities that are there to be shared, as they will not fit into your pocket. This is one of the greatest gifts that you can acknowledge.
When you acknowledge this you will attract others who can and will help you reach your goals as you help them reach theirs.
Being of service is the secret to success.
You get what you want from life by helping others get what they want. By being of service you exchange abundance with others which then becomes manifest not only in appreciation and betterment of your fellow beings but also in a material sense and you manifest one of the most beautiful laws of nature – those who serve most get most.
If you face each opportunity with a desire to serve others by helping them to reach optimum health (for example) rather than focus on the money, then this amazing law creates abundance without effort. The motivation for many will often be just money but for real success the motivation has to be to love what you are doing, to believe in what you are doing and to want to share what you are doing with the world.
This is very logical. If love is the most powerful force in the universe then it must be strongly linked with all aspects of who you are including financial abundance.
If your goal is love then money will flow like water.
If you have followed the above steps then the greatest block to manifesting such levels of financial abundance will no longer be a hindrance. You will no longer be afraid of being free and sharing your depth with others. You will no longer be afraid of the world you live in and being part of it in a more abundant way. The energy field will no longer magnify any shortcomings that you have believed in. You will magnify your strength as you become more generous to yourself and to others.
You will share in the joy and well-being that each wonderful opportunity creates for yourself, friends, family, colleagues and people that you meet in a world full of potential and abundance.
