When learning to use the Law of Attraction to attract more money into your life, you would be wise to first examine your beliefs about money and see if any of them might be hindering your objective. Beliefs don’t usually work alone, but rather determine the ACTIONS you take, which affects the result you receive.
Your beliefs act as an unspoken (yet powerful) message to the universe. Think of it as sending an energy-gram that tells the universe what you want to experience in your life. If you then take actions that underscore your beliefs, you have cemented the likelihood of a specific outcome taking place in your life.
You might desperately desire more money, but you might also be resisting it at some level. How do you know if this is happening? Consider these common prosperity-blocking beliefs:
• You have to work hard for money. Many of us were raised to believe that hard work is the only way to get ahead in life, so we’ve become accustomed to struggling for every penny we earn. We resist the idea of “getting something for nothing” so we push away the great opportunities that come our way. If this describes one of your beliefs, you will need to first work on changing your perception that money can only come to you through hard work. You’ll need to embrace a more optimistic mind-set and convince yourself that good things come to those who expect them, not just those who work like a dog for them.
• You don’t deserve a lot of money. If you have an underlying sense of unworthiness, you will consistently tell the universe, “thanks but no thanks” to any abundance that comes your way. You will insist that others need it more than you do, and you will feel guilty if you even consider accepting more money or anything good. The remedy for this belief is simple: LOVE. You need to learn to love yourself and develop the belief that you DO deserve good things in your life, including money. If others deserve it, why wouldn’t you?
• There is only so much to go around. This lack focus is usually given to us by our parents through colorful exclamations like, “What, you think money grows on trees?!” Over time, we learn to see lack more than abundance and such a focus ensures that lack will be most prevalent in our lives. To shift this perception, you need only look around at the massive abundance in the world. Think about wealthy people you know, or famous wealthy people. Think about the many various ways they have attracted abundance into their lives, and ask yourself why it wouldn’t be possible for you too? If you simply stop focusing on lack and instead strive to recognize abundance, you will see that there are limitless resources available for all of us.
These are just a few of the beliefs that block abundance. If you want to increase your financial abundance, take a few minutes to think about your own beliefs about money. Confront them and begin changing them, and then take actions that will help carry those beliefs into physical reality.
