“Hard work is the only path to success”
“Rich people aren’t nice people”
“Money is the root of all evil”
“I find it uncomfortable to ask for the money which I feel I deserve”
“The economy is not doing well…it’s a bad situation to be in”
These are some of the phrases which you may have heard while you were growing up. They do seem fairly harmless. Some of them may have seemed true to you and therefore, you adopted them in your psyche either consciously or unconsciously.
These harmless thoughts repeated in your mind over a period of time become beliefs and since you also see that the experiences you have match up to the beliefs you hold so the beliefs make so much sense to you. You say “look I told you so, this is the way things are”. It’s like a self-fulfilling prophecy.
These beliefs start impacting your view of the world and since our thoughts affect our feelings and our feelings affect our reality according to the law of attraction, what if these beliefs are affecting your reality? The way to find out is look at your reality. If it’s what you want, then things are good but if your reality is not what you want, then you may like to consider the contribution your beliefs are making towards your reality.
Once you are aware of the hurdle in living the life you want, then you can always take steps to change them. There are many ways to clear up the clogged pipes or the negative beliefs and thereby, open the floodgates to the abundance which you want in your life and when I say abundance, I mean abundance of not only money but also abundance of clarity, abundance of confidence, abundance of empowerment, abundance of appreciation, abundance of freedom. When you feel abundance, the manifestations (including money) which match up to your feelings have to come. It is law. It is the law of attraction and it states “like attracts like”.
One of the most powerful and easy ways is to focus on things or people or experiences or topics which are easy to appreciate for you. When you do this, you feel better. As you continue finding moments during the day wherein you deliberately focus and feel better, soon you will find yourself feeling good many times during the day. You will then find the strength to distract yourself whenever you are feeling negative and instead focus on that which makes you feel what you want to feel i.e. good. As you continue on this path, you will then start allowing more and more experiences, in your reality, which will match upto your new vibrations i.e. experiences which make you feel even more good.
As you find yourself in a new place of strength, you can then start changing your beliefs by practicing affirmations, on a daily basis, which match the life you want to create. Affirmations are positive statements. There are a few affirmations below. You may like to choose the ones which resonate most with you at that point of time.
“I love and appreciate all the good I have in my life”
“I am divinely blessed with abundance”
“The universe supports me”
“The universe has my back”
“All is well”
“I attract prosperity in my life”
“My wealth is constantly increasing”
“I love myself”
“I love my life and my life loves me”
As you start practicing the affirmations above on an everyday basis, you start to change the self-limiting beliefs which may have been present earlier. You then start moving closer to the reality you want to create in your life.
There are many people in this world who despite the recession/ bad economy that may be prevailing in their country are experiencing abundance in their lives. They have a larger share in the abundance pie and these are people who have discovered the power of their thoughts behind the reality they live. Others may look at their lives and say “oh, they are lucky” or “it’s a miracle” or something else but these people now know “how to” manifest or increase the abundance in their lives by believing what they want to believe rather than what they have heard from others.
