What is this evidence I speak of? Well, I will give you a few examples. It has been a dream of mine to own a home, a dream that I have been working on for over 5 years. . .. I have cultivated the belief that owning a home is hard and nurtured it for as long as I can remember. I remember learning when my parents told me they put down $40K on the home my mother now lives in and thinking how in the world will I ever have that kind of $$?? ? 5 years ago I was about to put an offer on a cute 2 bedroom condo with an office, with zero down payment loan when they said I no longer qualified because I had made more money 2 years ago than I had made the previous year. Bummer. This time around, the market is exploding, we have people moving here in droves and I am hearing realtors all around me talk about the housing shortage, seeing homes that were going for $150K 5 years ago are now valued at $300K and often getting cash offers.
When my hubby and I contact the mortgage broker this time, I just wanted to get an updated picture of where we were. When she came back with the highest note yet, I was excited. We started looking and found a couple of cute places immediately. However, one obstacle after another keeps popping up.
First off, I have always seen summer as my 'lean' months. I am not sure where this belief began only that it is one I have fallen victim to in the past. I have also had trouble believing that I will get a house, somewhere along the way, I convinced myself that it was a pipe dream. Funny, living my ideal life, traveling around inspiring people building a living and life, that never seemed like a pipe dream to me, but a simple thing like home ownership was?
I have become increasingly more aware of my thoughts and it seems as though I am getting daily evidence and feedback as to what they are and how it is affecting my life.
In Conversations with God, it talks about how the universe doesn't change our order - it is the most exact order taker there is! If we say 'I want this or that' then it answers with us wanting it. The only way to bring something into our life is to know that this thing is truly ours. We do this by feeling it.
When I decided that I wanted to have a healthy relationship in my life - I set out knowing that I was smart enough, pretty enough and all the other things that I wanted someone else to be in a relationship and that due to this, I would find a 'perfect' fit. I had zero doubts and whalla - I found myself what I call a pretty nearly 'perfect' fit. I only say pretty nearly because I have have a different definition of the term perfect than most.
So, if I want financial prosperity and that is what I am thinking, thinking about wanting - than I will continue to want. Instead I have to shift to I HAVE financial prosperity - I HAVE ENOUGH $$ to pay everything in FULL. The practical question that holds so many of us back - how do we make this shift when something isn't paid - when we see the red notices arriving in the mail. What are we supposed to do then, how can we have a mindset of I am financially prosperous when we have to deal with the daily barrage of inadequacy flying in our faces?
GOOD QUESTION! Simple, you say "hmm, opps, I must have not ordered things correctly, or put the money into the right account. THIS is FIXABLE! Even if your electric, internet or phone service gets cut off - focus on the turning it back on. Imagine how good you will feel, when it is back on! Think about everything being paid in full. Think about how you will laugh at your once perceived financial inadequacies. Start laughing and saying thank you so much God, Universe, Divine Spirit, whatever for bringing me into a place where I ALWAYS have ENOUGH! Thank you for ALWAYS bringing $$ to me whenever there is something I wish to express appreciation for. Every time you do pay a bill, think of it as an expression of appreciation for the service or product you just received. If you receive a surprise bill or expense say 'wow I am glad I am rich enough to appreciate this!'
The idea of not paying bills but instead "expressing appreciation for products and services" comes from Busting Loose from the Money Game. Another great idea - think of having a spending plan - NOT a budget. It helps you to feel psychologically wealthier.
Another thing I used to do that sabotaged my wealth was not checking my checking account on a regular basis. I would get so concerned that there would not be enough money at the end of the month, that I would avoid checking my account. It took my brilliant husband to point out to me that this was the ultimate way to perpetrate lack. I was thinking that if I had enough faith, that the money would just magically appear. Now I don't dismiss that theory - I have many ways that I have created for money to seemingly effortlessly appear in my accounts, but I was avoiding checking out of fear. Therefore what I was met with over and over again - were overdraft fees & insufficient funds. He says that when you have money in your account - you want to make sure you know where it is going! Well maybe and maybe not - but still, my action of not checking my account was done to avoid fear and stress. I was giving away my power and allowing my fear to dictate my circumstances.
NO more. I have daily alerts about my account balances now & guess what - my account balances continue to rise. I am financially responsible, I have that prosperity mindset and I am watching the whole financial landscape of my life become more and more abundant right before my very eyes. I can do it. I am doing it!! People love to work with me and I have AMAZING clients! I see myself buying a home, with no worries about whether I will be able to make my monthly mortgage payments. I see myself having that financial cushion. I see myself being so financially wealthy that I can move my family where ever we choose to live. I see myself expressing appreciation for the services rendered for natural and holistic chiropractic care, supplements, foods, services as well as fun and exciting things to do.
If the last paragraph is unbelievable for you in your situation right now - try something small. Something like looking at your phone bill and saying, I am so thankful that I can afford that! Start with anything, a package of gum, the food you are eating - even if the only way that you are able to eat is to go to a family members home - be thankful for that wealth!
If you were counting on some funds to cover something and they fall through - simply look at it as the opportunity for something bigger and better to come into your life where that was supposed to be. This can be challenging, but if you hold up your beliefs long enough, they will start holding you up! Keep in mind though that holding onto to anything too tightly doesn't help you - Instead - meditate on what it feels like for different things - to always have the money you need for different things, tires, oil changes, diapers, food, birthday gifts, rent, etc. Meditate on being thankful for these things, but then let them pass through your consciousness. Implant the feeling of gratitude and abundance every time any expense or request for appreciation is brought to your attention. I am grateful to have enough money to rent the truck to move my furniture out of my office. I am thankful that I have enough to get another storage until. I am grateful that I am able to be generous with my family on their birthdays. It feels amazing to be able to be generous with those I love, I am so thankful to be able to get my car registration. I am so grateful for my car.
