Many people look at money with a disdainful eye because they realize that money doesn’t buy happiness. They are right— the things that bring us true happiness in life are completely free. However, money does give us freedom, flexibility, ease, great comfort, and it opens up doors we would have never imagined.
Reaching — or even, exceeding — financial goals is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s great!
However, many people don’t look at money as a means to freedom and possibility because they are too focused on simply trying to get by: they unwillingly clock in at their stale office everyday, counting down the hours to go home. They spend most of their time and energy trying to attain just enough money.
Did you know that most people spend a huge amount of their lives trying to make up in action (such as slaving away at a job they dislike) for what they are simply lacking vibrationally? This is where the Law of Attraction comes into play.
If you are unfamiliar with how the Law of Attraction works, perhaps first read this Law of Attraction overview.
Simply put, just like any other law, the Law of Attraction is the magnetic power of the Universe that is constantly drawing matching energies together. For instance, thoughts of health attract health, thoughts of love attract love, and thoughts of financial abundance attract financial abundance.
It’s as simple — or as difficult — as that.
So, we understand that perhaps you have some personal financial goals are you wanting to reach. This article is here to help you learn how to leverage the Laws of Attraction in order to reach your personal financial goals.
Tell a new story
“As you tell the story the way you want it to be, the Universe has to comply. It has to." — Abraham Hicks
In order to fully step into a new reality, we must leave our previous financial story behind. Our old financial story may sound something like:
- “I always have to work hard for money.”
- “When money does come, it quickly leaves and I am in a constant battle to get it.”
- “How does he have so much money? He must sell drugs.”
A new financial story to start telling yourself should sound more along the lines of:
- “Money is like breath, it flows, it comes just as I need— it is always there for me.”
- “I'm a magnet for infinite prosperity.”
- “I have an occupation that thrills me. I constantly experience ever-flowing prosperity and financial abundance.”
The thing is, most people look at money from a perspective of lack. Yes, they are thinking of money, but instead of thinking of the having of money, they are focused on their lack of money. Guess what that brings to them? A lack of money, and even more reasons to feel a lack of money.
In order to reach our personal financial goals, it is crucial that we first change our perspective from a lack of money, to the feeling of having it.
The best way to begin the process of raising your vibration is to start appreciating what you already have. Even if you are simply appreciating your eyes for giving the miraculous gift of sight, the trees for their beauty and the life-giving oxygen they expel, or the birds for their lovely morning melodies.
If you'd like some help getting started, here is a brilliant list of 100 things to be appreciative of.
You can even write these things down — you will soon have a sore hand from writing, and a cornucopia of other things to still want to write. This feeling of appreciation will create feelings of abundance and, thus, will attract financial abundance into your life.
Then, once you are feeling appreciative and abundant, you can then begin to feel the appreciation for how nice it will be once you reach your goals of finance. Imagine yourself currently attaining the money, and give massive thanks to the Universe and it’s undying principles of attraction for bringing it to you. Allow yourself to continue feeling this appreciation for already having the money; if you do this, the money will come— and you will be amazed at the creative ways the Universe finds to bring it to you.
Forget the “how’s”
This leads us to another crucial step to achieving your goals of finance— leave the cursed “how’s” behind!
The Universe will find amazingly surprising and utterly compelling ways to bring our desires into fruition. The more we stress and try and figure out “how” the money will come to us, the more we resist and block the money from actually manifesting itself into our lives.
If, instead of focusing on the end-goal of having received the money, we focus on specific ways of getting it (like a scoring a better-paying job), we are always blocking out potentially more fruitful outcomes.
For instance, perhaps you believe that the most logical way for you to make money is to get a raise and work more hours at your job. However, perhaps the Universe had something a bit more relaxed in mind, like winning thousands of dollars in a sweepstakes or finding out about a long-lost inheritance from your great-great-great aunt. If you are focused on any particular ‘means to an end’ you will be blocking out other countless potentialities.
Move beyond visualization
Visualization is often touted as the number one way to bring your personal financial goals into fruition. However, visualization, alone, is not the trick — the key to manifestation is in the vibrations you give off, not the images you hold in your head. Your vibration and your current feeling are completely entangled. The wonderful thing about visualization is, the feeling is sure to follow.
The images we hold in our mind’s eye act as cogs in a reality machine; but really, it’s the feelings that accompany these images that get the work done.
So, if you want to visualize yourself in a brand new car, don’t just think about the car. Really put yourself there: feel how the steering wheel will feel in your hands, feel how the awesome sound system will vibrate throughout your body, feel the wind through your hair as your cruise along the highway… Really get the feeling of having this new car.
Another great visualization is to imagine buying all of your friends dinner. When everyone goes to pull out their cards and pay for the bill, imagine yourself standing up and saying, “No, it’s okay, I’ve got this one,” with a big smile. This scenario is sure to produce great feelings of prosperity.
Affirmations, affirmations, affirmations!
Affirmations are used to re-mind yourself throughout the day of your financial abundance. The key with these affirmations is to not only say them to yourself (as often as you can), but to really, really feel them as you say them. By doing repeating these affirmations as much as possible, your goals of finance are sure to manifest.
- My positive thoughts of money are coming true right now.
- I am worthy of success and financial abundance.
- I am a magnet for wealth and prosperity.
- I align myself with financial abundance and joy.
- I graciously welcome money into my life.
- I love having money; money loves being in my life.
- There is enough money and abundance for everyone.
- Prosperity flows to my life in both expected and unexpected ways.
- Life is so easy, money flows to me freely.
- The more I enjoy life, the more money I make.
You can easily make up your own affirmations, as well — just make sure they promote positive emotions when you think of them.
Now that you know your financial goals are attainable, what is your goal of finance?
