Many people were taught that once you get clear on what you desire and align your beliefs with your desires, then you can relax…it will come to you, no need to be in the “arena”….
At least that’s what many LOA mindset coaches and seminars still teach.
Some religious and New Age manifesters get so hyped about the metaphysical, spiritual aspects of our existence that they ONLY rely on and wait for God to take care of them.
I’ve met a few spiritual coaches and religious women who felt that they don’t need to do anything to live the life of their dreams, everything will be taken care of….
They ‘outsourced’ their financial responsibility to the Higher Power until…they faced serious financial challenges.
I had a client who was a pastor. When things were good, she was riding high, investing in her church, spending money on cars and furniture…. Everything was going fabulous. The only problem was that she didn’t have any savings….
When the US economy tanked in 2009 and her church was not able to support her lifestyle, she got really discouraged and “outsourced” her financial responsibility to…God.
She waited… hoping and praying…until she and her family lost their home.
Obviously, it’s an extreme.
And there is another extreme.
I am talking about the ‘old school’ of making a living and receiving.
I don’t know about you but I heard from my parents again and again that “hard work and struggle are to be expected in order to succeed in life.”
People on this other end of the beliefs’ spectrum are focused on HOW more than anything else and often get paralyzed by the HOW conundrum.
These folks assume that a “survival mode” is to be expected, and often feel exhausted and overwhelmed by their endless To-Do list.
I trust YOU realize that you’ve got to have a happy medium.
You must do what you can with what you’ve got at the moment, because the Universe will not do it for you…it will do it WITH you!
You can thrive in the physical world as well as apply the spiritual principals like “Thoughts create things” and “What you focus on, expands.”
And that brings us to the
Essential #8 for Creating Wealth and Success:
Be Open to RECEIVE Wealth and Abundance.
So, what needs to take place for you to RECEIVE Financial Wealth?
For most people RECEIVING Financial Wealth requires the following 5 steps:
1. Make a Decision and Commit to it wholeheartedly.
In other words, you must first decide that you TRULY want to live prosperously and commit to it.
Face it…….a few times in the past you said ‘I want to make more money; I want to be wealthy”!
Yet not much changed…. YES?
You must be sick and tired of your OLD STORY, of the small and powerless version of you…
You’ve got to get inspired and energized by your desires, your dream life. That’s why I emphasize the commitment to yourself.
2. Manage any resistance that may come up.
Resistance often happens once you start making changes. It may show up in self-doubts, fear, procrastination, anxiety, self-criticism…. The key is not letting your resistance derail or stop you…. You’ve got to keep going.
3. Take Action and do what you can with what you’ve got at the moment.
You may need to upgrade your skills, or get a new job, or change your money habits, or get a coach, or meditate and exercise daily, etc. Don’t wait for SOME day – baby steps in the right direction will create a forward-moving momentum in your life. THAT is how you leap forward!
4. You must GIVE in order to RECEIVE.
Giving is a form of action when you apply your talents, knowledge and experience to make impact in the world and, in the process, receive the financial reward. The bigger the impact of your actions, the bigger the reward.
5. Expand your Capacity to RECEIVE.
Some people have inner blocks that prevent them from receiving wealth and abundance. They lack the capacity to RECEIVE.
These folks have been conditioned (through family, religious or cultural programming) to give yet have challenges with receiving.
When they receive money, they feel that they need to spend or give it away.
They don’t feel that they deserve to be wealthy.
Or they simply don’t feel that it’s possible for them to be wealthy – even when they get money, they assume that it will not last.
Some don’t believe that anyone will be willing to pay them for their services. They don’t feel that they are good enough….
And sadly, many link their perception of self-worth to ‘having’ or ‘not having’ money. These feelings trigger such emotions as sadness, fear, gilt, shame….
If ‘having’ or ‘not having’ money is linked to your perception of self-worth and confidence – you will experience a continuous roller coaster and you will feel defeated and weak.
You must internalize your true specialness – your divine specialness, something that you don’t need to show, to prove or to defend.
And coming from that place, you can choose to see money as a spiritual mirror and driving force of your creativity.
This will help you see everything in a better perspective and become more grounded and successful.
One more thing about expanding your capacity to receive…
Practice ALLOWING instead of chasing and forcing.
Once you OPEN YOUR MIND AND HEART TO THE POSSIBILITY that YOU CAN co-create whatever you want in your life, abundance will flow to, through, and from you naturally.
Don’t outsource your well-being to anyone or anything. YOU are the captain of your life.
