Feeling Good About Money

I, like many others, jumped on “The Secret” bandwagon. I watched the movie and began incorporating the process into my life. It wasn’t that difficult, I’m generally a positive thinker .  A few years ago, my friend gave me “The Secret” calendar with a thought for each day. There is one that particularily caught my interest. It was about money. And for the past decade or so, money, or lack thereof, had been an issue for me and my family. The thought went like this…

{“You have got to feel good about money to attract more to you. Understandably, when people do not have enough money they do not feel good about money, because they don’t have enough. But those negative feelings about money are stopping more money coming to you! You have to stop the cycle, and you stop it by starting to feel good about money, and being grateful for what you have. Start to say and feel, “I have more than enough.” “There is an abundance of money and it’s on it’s way to me.” “I am a money magnet.” “I love money and money loves me.” “I am receiving more money every day.” “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”}

I remember thinking, “How true!”, and reflecting on the people I meet every day. The common thought process is to constantly worry about needing more money, paying bills, having enough for gas, groceries, kids needs, etc.  It seems to be a never-ending cycle that you can’t break free from. In reality, it is. Your thoughts about not having enough contine to bring you just that, not enough.

Now I’m not saying that if you begin thinking about having more than enough money that your troubles will end instantaneously. It takes time, and patience, and belief. The last one is often the most difficult. What I am saying, is that if what you are attracting is not what you want, if what you are doing is not working, then try something new.

I used to get up in the morning and start thinking about our lack of money. I would get in the car and worry about not having enough for gas for the week. I would go to the grocery store and worry about exceeding my budgeted amount. I would constantly stress about what I didn’t have versus what I did have. And guess what? The cycle continued. So, I decided to break it. I became concious of my thoughts. When I caught myself worrying about not enough, I pictured how I would feel with enough. I envisioned what I would see, how I would feel. When I got in my car I thought about my gas guage being on full. When I went for groceries I thought about getting tremendous value with what I had. I won’t say it all changed for me suddenly and miraculously, but I will say that it gets better day by day and that I worry less and visualize more. Try it! You might like it!
