Yep — we’re tackling that topic no one wants to talk about: Money and the Law of Attraction! You’ve heard about the Law of Attraction, right? Essentially it states that we draw into our experience that which we believe and accept for ourselves. What we focus on is what we attract. So you may be wondering why it doesn’t seem to be working for you … especially when it comes to money.
Here’s a powerful truth: The Law of Attraction is true, regardless of whether you believe it or not. And the Law of Attraction is working all the time — whether you focus on positive or negative. So let’s put it to work intentionally, so we see the results we desire!
Here are seven simple but transforming actions you can take right now to begin orchestrating the Law of Attraction so you attract the financial prosperity you so richly deserve. We recommend you use your journal to keep track of your experiences! (If you don’t have a journal, this is a great time to start one!)
Are you ready to experience incredible and amazing results? Let’s go!
#1: Bless the money you have. To bless something means to confer abundance on it, so when you bless the money you have, you are actually affirming its growth. We love the scene in It’s a Wonderful Life, when the staff of the Building and Loan Company is celebrating their ability to stay in business after a run on the bank. At the close of business, there is a grand total of $2 remaining. As they cheer and march into the safe with the two single dollar bills, George Bailey exclaims: “A toast! A toast! A toast to Mama Dollar and to Papa Dollar, and if you want to keep this old Building and Loan in business, you better have a family real quick.”
Whenever you receive money, take a moment to bless it; whenever you spend money, take a moment to bless the recipient, affirming your money is going out to do good and will return to you multiplied.
#2: Keep track of exactly how you are currently spending your money. Write down every expenditure, without judgment or guilt. At the end of the week, evaluate your spending habits. Sometimes we spend money without realizing where it goes, and we end up using our resources for unimportant things. This shortchanges us when there is something we really want to do.
#3: Use Prosperity Affirmations on a regular basis. For example: I have now transcended all patterns of lack. I am rich and prosperous. Money flows to me easily and effortlessly, and I have plenty to share and plenty to spare. I am one with the Divine Law of Abundance, and give and receive joyfully and generously, knowing there is always plenty.
#4: Check out your beliefs about money. Really dig deep and discover your attitudes and feelings about money. Listen to how you talk about money. Do you believe you deserve to have money? How do you feel about people who have a lot of money at their disposal? How was money talked about as you grew up? What are your deepest fears related to money and your life experience? As you uncover poverty consciousness or lack thinking, create new beliefs and begin affirming them for yourself. (For example, if you discover you believe it’s not right to have a lot of money, begin affirming the positive actions you can take when you have excess money available to you.)
#5: Change the way you talk about your financial situation. Become aware when you say things like, “I can’t afford that” or “I’m never going to be able to pay off these credit cards.” Change your language to affirm the results you want to see: “I choose not to spend my money on that right now.” “I am paying off these credit card debts with ease and grace!” (Bonus idea: Forgive yourself for debts you have incurred. Free yourself of guilt and self-recrimination, and focus on changing the situation.)
#6: Be grateful with everything you spend. When you write checks, we recommend that you physically write the word “Gladly” above the words “Pay to the order of …” When you pay bills on line, as you hit SEND, add a prayer of gratitude to the recipient and bless the transaction of energy. When you use cash, surround it with the energy of love.
#7: Make a list of how you would spend a large amount of money. In order to attract large amounts of money, you need to be ready to accept it by right of Consciousness. This means you need to begin thinking in terms of large amounts of money, and feeling yourself having it. Think about what a large amount of money would be for you — then double it! Now make a list of exactly how you would spend it! Then be on the lookout for amazing things to happen.
BONUS TIP: Give! That’s right! When we give, it is a powerful confirmation of our belief that we have plenty. So find a way to give to something that really matters to you. You can give money, time, resources, creativity — there are endless ways to give. Giving and Receiving are intertwined, creating a cycle of flow. Look for ways to give — and be ready to receive with gratitude and grace.
