Attracting More Money!

Aug 17, 2007
When it comes to money, most of us were raised to believe there is a lack of abundance in the world--a limited amount of money and resources that we must fight over like rats competing over scraps of cheese.

Not that many years ago, I had this same belief. I remember when I first read The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace Wattles. This classic work is based on the philosophy of Monism which claims there is no limit to the abundance of the world, and whatever appears in our lives is the merely the result of our habitual way of thinking.

At the time, I was definitely not ready to hear this, and my logical mind began to ridicule the idea as superstitious mumbo jumbo. But the more I learned about the mind, and the power our subconscious mind, I slowly began to understand that we do create our own lives: we create our own limitations; and we create our own success, failure, luck, and yes, even our own wealth.

As I studied more and moved beyond the initial disbelief, it became clear that I needed to make some changes in my life-I began to see that I had created my life exactly as it was (both the good and the bad), and in order to get a different result, I would need to create something different.

One of my first steps was to begin replacing my old belief in lack and limitation with a new belief in abundance and infinite potential, and this required me to take a (sometimes unpleasant) look at the habits I had developed over the years.

I had grown very accustomed to looking at the world, myself and money in a certain way. We all do this to some point-we "settle" on a particular way of seeing the world (our paradigm) and go about our lives without thinking about it much it all.

I came to see that I was running on autopilot the majority of the time. My beliefs and habits did not always serve me very well, but I was comfortable with them, like an old faded blanket, so I simply allowed the "program" to run, unquestioned.

But in order to change my habitual way of "seeing" the world, I had to replace my old way of thinking with new habits and new beliefs. And the primary way I achieved this was by repetition.

Repetition is how humans learn everything. Think about driving a car: you practice over and over until you don't have to think about it any longer-at that point you are simply running on autopilot-your subconscious mind has taken over and you have internalized the new habits and beliefs.

The more often we remind ourselves of our new habits and beliefs, the quicker we assimilate them into our life, and one very effective way of speeding up this process is through the practice of visualization. Try this simple exercise:

When you first wake in the morning, sit in meditation for a few minutes. Visualize your life exactly as you would like it too be, including the income you would like to have. Remind yourself that there is no lack-no limitation. Become the abundance that is all around you.

And then at night as you are ready to fall asleep, visualize the same abundance and success in your life, and express gratitude that this abundance is already on its way to you.

Finally, I recommend making a gratitude list everyday (even 4-5 times a day if you have time!). Gratitude is the easiest way to bring abundance into your life. It pushes all the right abundance "buttons" when you focus your attention on what you are grateful for, and brings you into harmony with the good that you want.

Gratitude is a part of nearly all wealth attractions methods, and with good reason: it works! Make it your habit to never let the sun go down without giving thanks for what is good and right in your life. And you don't always have to write it down-make a mental gratitude list if you like. I often do this in the car or while waiting for an appointment.

In fact, I've made gratitude lists for so long now that I tend to do it everyday automatically. Through repetition, gratitude has become my habitual way of thinking, and so my mind automatically turns to the subject without having to think much about it.

You see, this autopilot thing can actually work for you, as well as against you. Through repetition, you decide what your "autopilot" will be set on: lack and limitation, or prosperity and wealth. As always, the choice is entirely yours.
