I recently wrote an article about the law of attraction. The law of attraction says that we attract into our lives everything we think about. The way we think about things is very important, we can use the law of attraction to get what we want, but if we don’t think right, we can block certain things from coming into our lives, without even realizing it. The law of attraction can be applied in many areas of life – health, relationships, money, and many others. I decided to write this article about attitude towards money and how it can affect how much of money you have.
The Power of Money
When I was in my early twenties I met some interesting friends who had psychic abilities. I was very ambitious and quite eager to have loads of money when I start my professional life. So back then I asked one of my friends during a tarot session: “Will I be rich?”. Her answer surprised me. She said that I would first have to sort out my attitude towards money. So I asked: “What do you mean? My attitude towards money is good. I would like to have loads of money. I don’t think there is anything wrong about having a lot of money!”. Back then I already knew about the basic principals and I knew that if I wanted to have something, my attitude towards it had to be positive to attract it into my life. I saw people around me thinking that money is evil, and I knew that similar attitude would not get me anywhere.
In fact the “Money is evil” misconception is probably one of the most common attitudes that blocks money from many people. Usually, they have money connected with everything bad that is happening around the world – most wars are happening because of money, children in poor countries are dying because lack of money, and so on. They would probably have a lot of stories ready about people that became rich and how money ruined their lives by losing friends or partners as a result of it, how envy in the family broke the family apart and many other stories of that kind.
In my opinion, it is not the money which is to be blamed for all of this – it is a wrong use of money by some of the people that have them. It is the people to be blamed for all of this, not the money itself. There are plenty of examples of a good use of money – look at charities for example and how much good they can do. All thanks to money they get from generous people. They have the power thanks to the money to change the world to the better. See how money helped during times of tragic world events, such as tsunami, earthquakes, and so on. Money is a power to make a difference.
Lets look at why money were created. They were created because people specialize and do different things. Everybody does different things for living, for example, a tailor makes dresses and a farmer grows vegetables. But when the tailor would like some vegetables to make his lunch, it would make no sense for him to give the farmer a dress, because the farmer may not need a dress and the dress’s value is would be different anyway. They both put energy into what they are doing, money is a means of expressing the energy and it can be exchanged for other things, which we may need more. Money comes to our lives to manifest something, it can be used to express an effort. So, in fact, money is a form of an energy.
Money and the Rich
Another reason why I couldn’t figure out why I was “accused” of having something wrong with my attitude towards money was that I also didn’t judge rich people because of what they do and how they use money. Some people dislike rich people and keep judging them. This is what they usually think:
- Rich people have bad relationships
- Rich people are greedy
- Rich people buy things they don’t need
- Rich people waste money by buying luxury goods
- Rich people are selfish
- Rich people have no family life
- Rich people cannot find time for their partners and family
- Rich people like to boast and show off
- Rich people worry all the time that they would lose what they have
- Rich people don’t care about an environment, why would someone need to fly a helicopter anyway?
And the list above could go on. The law of attraction works very well in this case. If you think about people in negative way because they are rich, you are saying “I don’t want to be rich”. Again, try to move your thinking towards being more positive. Do you realize how much power the rich people have to make a difference? Did you know that it is the rich people who give the most money to charities all around the world? If they want to live in luxury and spend huge amounts of money, why wouldn’t you let them do it? The fact that they spend money only means that they transfer some of their money to someone else. What if they are not greedy and selfish, what if they only developed a very good habit of saving money, that gives them huge freedom and safety?
One of my friends used to live next door to a rich family. He used to complain all the time, saying: “Look at the pool in their garden. What a waste of money! And look how big fence they had to build! They just don’t want anyone to see into their garden, because they are are afraid that people would find out that they are rich and they would get robbed!”. His stories about his neighbors always showed how jealous he was of what they have and how many issues he has with the rich people. He didn’t appreciate that there was nothing wrong with living in luxury and that people may just want some privacy when they have a pool in their garden – building a fence may not necessarily mean that they would be afraid of losing what they have. If you know anyone like this, try to turn the conversation into something more positive if they start talking like this, don’t let the negative thinking affects you. If you want, point them to this article .
The law of attraction says that you can have anything you want. So if you want to be rich and at the same time have time for your family, why would you think that it would not be possible? If you say something is not possible, you are “done”, because it will not be possible for you. You make the decision.
Money and You
I think I now know why I didn’t have a good attitude towards money. I knew all the theory which I mentioned above and I was trying to apply it – always thinking positive about the money, always not judging rich people. But all this time I was excluding myself from all of this. I never asked myself how do I feel about being rich. What would I do, if I had million dollars? I found that I don’t know the answer to that question. And actually, when you imagine that you had million dollars (especially if you meditate), some other questions may come into your mind:
- Is the million dollars going to be enough?
- Should I give some money to other relatives? Will I be a bad person if I don’t?
- How would I distribute the money to diversify risk, in case a bank goes bust?
- Should I invest some of the money? How much? Where?
- Should I set up a company?
- How would my relationship with current friends change?
- How much of the money would I donate to charity?
- What would I do if someone wanted to borrow some money?
If questions start popping into your mind when you imagine that you are rich, you should understand them and see how they can affect you and you should address them, one by one. They could show that you are not ready just yet for having lots of money, because they may be revealing some blocks and obstacles when it comes to attracting money. For example, the question “How would I distribute the money to diversify risk, in case a bank goes bust?” may show that you fear losing the money, which you should deal with first – you must get rid of any negative thoughts because otherwise, you may attract it. At the same time, you may want to find an answer to the question and decide what is the most safe bank to trust with the money, how you you would invest parts of the money and so on. Finding answers to the questions shifts your thinking to be like you already had the money, attracting it even more. And once you find answers to them, you will be relieved and feel even more ready.
There is also a theory that people should not concentrate on getting money. Instead, they should concentrate on what they want to achieve in their life (what is their “Opus“) and if they need the money to get there, it will come. Even Napoleon Hill in his The Law Of Success In Sixteen Lessons stresses the importance of having something what he calls a “definite chief aim”. If you try to imagine what you would do if you had a million dollars, it may be a good way of turning your thinking from the money to what you want to achieve – the money will just come to get you there.
As always, I am keen to hear what is your experience. What are the questions that pop into your mind when you imagine having million dollars? Do you have any worries?
