Do you find yourself stressed about money? Do you think you're just not one of the lucky ones? Do you constantly feel broke or like you can't afford what you need? We all grew up with different programs around money, and we each hold different beliefs about the subject. But if you find yourself constantly worried about it, feel broke, or feel like you never have enough, then it's time to heal your relationship with money and shift your vibration from one of lack to one of abundance.
Have you ever thought of money as a form of energy? Because it is. Everything in our universe is energy, and we attract according to the thoughts we think and our vibrational frequency. So if you want more money, you have to be an energetic match for it. The key here is to feel like you've already got it - because if you are in a state of 'wanting' more money, you will continue to attract that state - wanting it, not having it.
In The Game of Life and How to Play It, Florence Scovel Shinn reminds us of the power of our spoken words, thoughts, and actions. She also teaches the Law of Prosperity (among many other important laws of living). "One of the greatest messages given to the race through the scriptures is that God is man's supply and that man can release, through his spoken word, all that belongs to him by divine right. He must, however, have perfect faith in his spoken word. Florence proceeds to tell a story of a woman she knew in great distress because she would be sued for three thousand dollars and knew no way of getting the money. Long story short - with active faith, affirmation, and gratitude, the woman received the money she needed at the right time.
In her book, Florence Shinn also shares other laws and stories regarding finances that teach the importance of being "rich in consciousness" before receiving riches physically. Meaning you have to believe it before you see it.
Abundance and prosperity are a state of being - a vibrational frequency. Your vibration is made up of your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. So shifting your mindset from scarcity and lack to abundance can bring forth a huge change in what you experience, but it will take a serious commitment to noticing your thoughts and willingness to shift your beliefs about money and your sense of self-worth.
Also, remember that abundance and prosperity can come in more forms than just money, so be open to all the miraculous ways the universe can deliver to you what you need when you need it. It could come in the form of an idea, a connection, an unexpected refund, or a material gift. It's all energy.
Below are some helpful resources and affirmations to help you master the money mindset. Set your intention and repeat the affirmations to watch some magic unfold.
Affirmations for Attracting Money & Abundance:
"I am open and receptive to all forms of prosperity and abundance in unexpected ways."
"I am a money magnet."
"I have perfect work, in a perfect way. I give perfect service for perfect pay." - Florence Scovel Shinn
When a negative thought about finances comes up such as "I can't afford that" or "I can't pay my bills" immediately reverse it with a positive thought toward it and visualize the outcome you desire.
