Making Money

There’s no getting away from the fact that most people use the Law of Attraction to increase their wealth or to get into a relationship. In this post we’re going to look at ways you can help yourself to attract more money.

You’ve probably already tried using the Law of Attraction to attract more money – and if you haven’t succeeded, you might be wondering what’s going on?

Ways to Attract More

There are several things you can do to help attract more money into your life. Read on, and find out what they are, and how they can help you attract more money. Of course after you’ve attracted money you might want to attract love, material goods like a car and a new house, as well as happiness and everything else.

But like most people, you’re probably starting with money.

The first thing you can do is to give money away. 

Does this sound rather strange, counterintuitive even, but really, the more you give the more you will receive – unless, that is, you’re blocking receiving. We’ll talk about that in a minute.

But – generally speaking – giving openly and freely to causes and people which provide you with spiritual nourishment is a good way to generate universal manifestation and better attraction.

You’ve heard of tithing, where you give 10% of your income on a regular basis to others – well, it’s great to give 10%, but it’s even better to give more. You could ask yourself, what have I been most inspired this past week, and then donate money accordingly. 

When people start to do this, they often do it with hesitation, or even fear, perhaps – as we might put it –  “with a tight fist”.

What this indicates is that they’re afraid of not having money, and they are holding onto what they’ve got now. As you can see, this is NOT allowing money to circulate because you’re holding onto it with an attitude of fear.

And as you know, like attracts like – which probably means that if you’re fearing the lack of money, you’re giving out a fear of lack, and you don’t have an expectation of money flowing to you.

Don’t tithe if you feel like this! Or if you feel resentful or obligated or desperate! Read this instead! (Tithing won’t work in such situations.)

Apart from acting as spiritual karma, tithing is a good test of where you are in your spiritual development – and in your trust and faith that money will come to you when you ask for it.

In summary: give money clearly with an open heart to things that feed your soul, and expect that the universe will repay you many times over.

Liming Beliefs

The second thing you can do is to stop pushing money away with your limiting beliefs – we’ve talked about limiting beliefs before, but basically they’re things you believe like “money is the root of all evil”, or “people with money tend to be bad or even evil”.

Of course these things are nonsense – they’re only statements of fact if YOU believe them to be true!

Once you’ve dealt with them, once you’ve got rid of them, once you’re clear about money, you don’t need to hold any false beliefs about the values of good and evil attached to money, and you can start to use the Law of Attraction for yourself, to attract money to you.

Remember that the blocks you have, the limiting beliefs that stop you getting what you want, are probably not held in your conscious mind, so you may be totally unaware that you have them. It’s what you believe in your subconscious or unconscious mind that controls whether or not you’re successful manifesting what you want.

To exemplify this, think of your New Year’s resolutions – what you resolve to do differently last New Year?

And how long did that resolution last in reality? Exactly. You see, the point is that if your unconscious mind holds beliefs which are contrary to what you consciously want to achieve, you’re never going to achieve it.

The subconscious mind is the powerhouse of everything you do, think and feel in life, and when it is not in line with your aspirations, the Law of Attraction won’t work.

That is why so many people say The Secret or Law of Attraction is nonsense.

But it isn’t – the obstacles to manifestation are all in your own mind. You need to examine your limiting beliefs around money and release them.

Take Action

The third thing you MUST do is to take action. It hardly needs saying, but Law of Attraction isn’t a force which will deliver what you want with no action on your part.

You have to act on your ideas, you have to take action in the world which moves you towards your objectives. Countless people think of an idea and do nothing to manifest it in reality.

The most common outcome? Somebody else grabs it, runs with it, and makes great deal of money. So whatever you think you can do to make money, to attract money, go out and do it, right now.

Fourthly, you need to support a cause – yes, a worthwhile cause.

The object of the exercise here is to give you a good reason to want more money. If you’re supporting a good cause, there is something in your mind which can release the blocks about attracting more money.

You’re releasing your ego from the constraints that it feels.

But by raising money for a cause you believe in, one which makes you (and your heart) feel happy, you can help yourself overcome blocks.

And the truth you might be overlooking is that when you’re wealthy, you can help your friends and your family, even your society and the world at large, much more effectively than you can when you’re poor.

A very good reason to attract money is for the good that it can do in the world, not just to get you the things that you want – although that’s perfectly good reason as well!

Fifthly, if you’re trying to get rich, surround yourself with the people who inspire you.

Find people who can help you and support you in your objectives – and who you can help achieve their objectives.

This is a mastermind group, and it’s absolutely critical to your success. Just think about it for a moment.

If you surround yourself with negative people who don’t believe in what you’re doing, and you talk to them about what you’re trying to achieve, what do you think the likely outcome will be? Exactly.

So if you’re not in a mastermind group, set one up and use it effectively.

Sixth, be grateful.

We all know that gratitude is a powerful emotion, but even so you might not understand what a fundamental role it plays in the generation of wealth by using Law of Attraction.

Start by being thankful for the money you do have (which represents a massive fortune to some people on this planet we all share).

That way, you can generate a real sense of thankfulness and you’ll find that you begin to attract more and more money.

Gratitude sends out a signal of appreciation, and this signal energizes the universe – it responds by sending you more money.

You can be truly thankful for anything you’ve got, no matter how small. Dr Jo Vitale tells the story of how he started by being grateful for a pencil he was holding when he was homeless and in poverty.

You can do the same. Look around you, find something you are grateful for right now, and change your energy by sending out gratitude into the universe. Law of Attraction will always respond to this.

Seventh, do something that you want to do.

Don’t work at things you hate, don’t surround yourself with people you don’t like, don’t spend your time doing things you find unpleasant.

Of course there are many people who advocate following your passion as a way to make the most money possible, and in broad terms I agree with them.

But – and it’s a big but – at the same time, you can’t just give up your job tomorrow if you don’t have any practical alternative for making money. Such changes are an act of faith too far for most of us!

In other words, while Tony Robins might suggest that you take massive irreversible action (such as giving up your job) to stimulate the universe and put yourself onto a path of money generation, I’d advocate you take smaller steps….

Start by doing something you’re passionate about, something that excites you, and which can make you money in the longer term.

Even when you’re working for somebody you don’t like, or doing a job you hate, you can find ways to do what you love in your spare time.

Joe Vitale tells us how he wrote his first book in his lunch hours, did his first speaking engagement at weekends, and how he sold his book at the back of the room where he was giving his talk. From such modest beginnings he began a career that he now describes as his “moment by moment wonder”.

What would you want to be doing if you could do anything ….. even if you were never paid?

Needless to say, it’s that which you “should” be doing, and believe me, somehow you can have faith, take action, and find a way to make it pay you.

And finally, keep a playful mindset: for example, ask yourself everyday “Where’s the big money going to come from today?”

That’s going to keep your brain (and your subconscious mind) on alert for opportunities…. opportunities which will allow you to take action to generate wealth.
