“If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.” ~ Dorothy Parker
It is a mindset, my friends. Thinking about money in more positive, abundant, and deserving ways changes our relationship with money, making it easier to attract and enjoy. Could it be that simple to get more money? Many people dismiss such thinking about money as unrealistic and too idealistic. Such doubt is understandable, but it can be tested.
Here are three tips that can significantly change the way you think and feel about money. Try them for a few weeks and see what happens with your money.
Visualize the money you receive and spend as energy in a circular process of exchange. For example, the value of your work, expertise, or skills is exchanged for the salary or fees from an employer or client. You then exchange the money you have received for the value of a product or service you can purchase. These exchanges go around and around with each creating value. Seeing money this way changes your perception of the value of money. You value more of what you exchange to receive it and you value what you exchange it for. This means more conscious and positive choices about money.
Be grateful for the money that comes to you and that you can exchange it with other people. When you receive money, tell yourself you have received a “valued” gift and feel the positive energy that comes from honoring that gift. When you give it to others be grateful that you can give a “valued” gift to someone else. Gratitude for money as a gift taps into the Law of Abundance, which says there is plenty of money for everyone and allowing money to flow to us as a gift and away from us as a gift, means more will flow to us. The more grateful you are for money, the more you will have to be grateful for – it’s that simple.
Continually remind yourself that you deserve money and that it provides you the freedom to live, play, and enjoy. Everyone deserves wealth and what it can provide. Most people doubt they deserve it and almost see it as a curse. In doing so, they feel trapped by it, desperate for it, and hoard what money they have. Money will be harder to attract if your thoughts about it stop it from flowing to you. If you see it as scarce, it will be, especially if you believe it should be scarce for you. You deserve lots of money and so do others and by receiving it and sharing it, we affirm that.
Money is the most constant concern for all of us, since without money life is limited, sometimes even hopeless. How we think about it determines how much we attract and the level of freedom it can provide us. If you think of money as an energy to be exchanged, express gratitude for it, and know you deserve money; your experience with it can change dramatically. Not only will you feel better, the probability that money will flow abundantly toward you will increase.
