If there’s one thing that unites all people, it’s the quest for financial stability. No other subject can attract more people than wealth or money. Everyone wants more, there never seems to be enough to around and getting more money is on the forefront of many people’s desires.
Manifesting wealth in your life is the process of attracting sources of income, abundance and prosperity. Using affirmations is a key to this process. Affirmations are positive statements that are said in the present tense. They help to remold your mind, behaviors and feelings regarding wealth to put you in a better place to receive.
Money and wealth are subjects that are hot button issues for many people. Although most people want it, most people also have limiting beliefs when it comes to their ability to get it. Money is one of those subjects that we are taught a lot about as children. How many times have you heard the following:
"Money doesn’t grow on trees." "We can’t afford it." "Those kinds of things aren’t for us." "Rich people aren’t good people." "He/she probably did something unethical to get that rich." "The rich just want to control the world."
"Money doesn’t grow on trees."
"We can’t afford it."
"Those kinds of things aren’t for us."
"Rich people aren’t good people."
"He/she probably did something unethical to get that rich."
"The rich just want to control the world."
Statements like these said by your parents, friends, neighbors or even the media have molded your beliefs about what it is like to be rich. Although you consciously know that there are "good" rich people on this planet, your past programming is effecting your ability to really let yourself create wealth.
This is where affirmations come in. The previous statements, and ones like them, are nothing more than negative affirmations. Just like affirmations, they were said in the present tense, with a lot of emotional conviction. With repetition, they became part of your understanding of the world. And now they are holding you back from what you really desire.
Before you write affirmations about your specific wealth goals ("I make a million dollars a year"), you may need to take some time working with affirmations about your beliefs about wealth. These type of affirmations will help displace your old beliefs from your childhood.
Start by making a list of attitudes, behaviors or events that shaped what you currently think and feel about wealth and rich people. Think about what your parents taught you about wealth (or lack thereof). Write down these statements on a piece of paper.
Next, you’ll want to tackle each one of those statements with a new positive statement about wealth. For example, at the heart of "money doesn’t grow on trees" is the concept that wealth is finite and limited. You can challenge this with a new belief "The universe is abundant with wealth and other resources."
Confronting the old behaviors and beliefs about money and wealth will free you to pursue what you really want. If you truly want to earn that million a year, but are holding onto negative connotations about the rich, you will never allow yourself to get it. Using affirmations you can dig up old limiting beliefs and replace them with empowering statements.
