Have you every heard about how, in order to have what you want you gotta BE what you want first? Have you - just like me when I first heard that - thought it didn't make any sense?
How can I BE the money that I want? I totally get it. It does sound a bit ridiculous.
I am a Quantum Success Law of Attraction coach and even thought I've helped many moms achieve more balance, joy and confidence applying law of attraction principles; this whole BEING what you want is still something I practice every single day so that I can understand it better.
Applying this to money and living it every day is the new thing in my life. As I not too long ago made a big decision around this subject, it was time for me to face this big, hairy and scary monster that I've been avoiding, and begin to develop a loving relationship with it. If I wanted more money it was time for me to truly BE the money.
You might be feeling like I'm a bit cuckoo, but if you want more money I'm sharing with you the easiest way for you to become the money that you want. :-)
How can someone BE MONEY? One of the easiest ways to begin is by tuning into the energy of money. Money is energy and you are energy. Money is magnetic. So are you and so are your emotions. And one of the most powerful and magnetic emotions is GRATITUDE. This week’s Magic Monday blog has the formula for a gratitude list that will tune your energy to the energy of money so you can become a magnet to money and pretty much anything else you might be desiring right now.
First I’d love you to answer these 3 questions:
Question # 1:
What comes to your mind when you hear the word ABUNDANCE?
Many people, including myself might first think about money. The truth is that money is only one aspect of abundance. Abundance is really about that feeling of being enough, of having plenty of whatever it is that you need to support you in your life so that you can be the person that you want to be.
So that you can do and have what your heart truly desires, what makes you feel fulfilled and happy. Abundance is who you and me are, and abundance is the Universe that we live in. Everything that you need to have whatever you desire is already within you.
Question # 2:
How do you want to feel when you have more money?
Another truth is that every single thing that you desire, you desire it because you believe you are going to feel in certain way when you get it. So what is the feeling you are really craving to experience more in your life that you believe money will give you?
Question # 3:
If you felt free, loved, supported, if you had enough time and peace of mind right now. Would you really feel like you need all the money?
You need to get in the habit to think abundant thoughts, feel abundance feelings and take actions with abundant energy. EVERY SINGLE DAY
There are of course many ways to earn money. But think about this for a moment. If you are not feeling good about yourself and about your life, if you are not feeling like you deserve to have a life that is filled with love, and abundance and a lot of money, then you might be very good at making money or the money that you are desiring might come to you in many ways, but that is not going to change how you feel about yourself.
(before reading the rest of this blog I’d like to encourage you to take some minutes and define what abundance really means for you. At the bottom of this age I am sharing how four of my favorite teachers define abundance to inspire you)
At the end is not about the money at all. Money and things by themselves have no worth at all, unless you feel happy with who you are, what you have and what you are doing. You have to be able to appreciate the value of who you are and the value of what people and things are giving you.
And that is why Gratitude works magic, and can turn you into a magnet for your desires.
Here are four of my absolute favorite reasons why:
Gratitude vibrates at the frequency of the Universe
Everything is energy and therefore your emotions have energy. Whatever you constantly think about is what sooner or later will become your reality. And when you think a thought with emotion you create much faster (this is true for good thoughts with good feeling emotions and “bad” thoughts with bad feeling emotions). Gratitude is one of the most powerful and magnetic emotions.
When you are in state of gratitude and appreciation you are elevating your personal vibration to match the vibration of GOD and the Universe. When you are in gratitude you are already BEING what you want.
Gratitude is the memory of the heart
An inspirational quote by french Jean Baptiste Massieu that I adore. Love is another powerful and magnetic emotion.
Many people talk about listing gratitude in the morning and that is a wonderful habit to develop. I just prefer doing it at the end of the day because it gives me the opportunity to go through my day and make an effort to remember as much as possible of all the good things that happened and all the people I met.
Another reason I love this quote is because I recently learned that men and women have a specific ABUNDANCE hormone that when we activate it, it makes us magnetic too. For women is oxytocin and that made so much sense to me. Oxytocin is also known as the love hormone, the bonding hormone. Studies have linked it to the development of connection, trust, empathy and PROSPERITY.
Gratitude retrains your brain
Neuroscientists have proven that making a list of 10 things you are grateful for every day, has the power to override old patterns in the brain and create new, empowered and happier patterns. Gratitude does make you happier. :-)
You get more of what you are grateful for
The more you appreciate all that you already are and all that you already have, the more you expand your ability to receive more. Because everything is energy the Universe responds to the energy that you send out. With your vibration of appreciation you are saying to the Universe. YES!! Thank you for this. I am feeling so good and I love this feeling. And the Universe goes! Awesome, that’s what you want, here you go! And then you’ll get more of all kinds of things, people, and circumstances that will match that vibration you are sending out and that will make you feel the same way.
Are you ready to get this magic gratitude formula and turn yourself into a big walking bubble of love, gratitude,abundance and lots of money?
I am grateful for:
ME + YOU + MY LIFE + MY DESIRES + MY FEARS = Money Magnet Mom
So when you write your magnetic gratitude list you want to have at least one statement from each category.
You list qualities about you, parts of your body, skills, successes, etc. Remember you are perfectly imperfect right now. You want to love yourself just as you are and just as you are not.
Here you wanna list people that make a difference in your life and their qualities. Old friends and family as much as strangers you met during the day. The lady at the supermarket that always smile, the bus driver that waited for you, the guy at your favorite coffee shop that remembers your name and the type of coffee you like.
I am grateful for every time my husband makes dinner. (even if it’s only once a month - if you want this to happen often then you gotta love him and appreciate him for that one time that he did it. :-) )
I am grateful for Scott that motivates me to reach my fitness goals.
I love when Lucía wakes up and comes directly to me with her messy hair and says good morning.
I am so happy and grateful when I hear Marco on the other side of the door bell coming from school saying Hej Mor :-)
I am grateful for the guy at the coffee store that always smile at me.
Those simple things that make your life easy and remind you of how great your life is.
I am grateful for butterfly kisses and Winnie the Pooh goodnight stories
I am grateful for my pancakes pan
I am grateful for pineapples
I am grateful for sunshine
For this one I want you to entertain the idea that everything you desire you already have it. Think about this:
Every single material thing that is out there was once an idea in someone’s mind. Everything is energy. So the idea was unmanifested energy. And then it turned into something physical - manifested energy.
Every feeling that might be craving to experience more, you have felt it at some point in your life before. You wouldn’t be able to desire peace of mind if you didn’t know how peace of mind actually feels. So if you have a desire right now you have what it takes to make that a reality.
So go ahead and be grateful for it because it is already yours.
I am so happy and grateful for the women joining us on The Singing Hearts retreat in June.
I am grateful for the 5 new clients that I got this month.
I am grateful for all the moments that I am able to feel calm, focused and fulfilled.
List a few of the contrasts you are experiencing and get in the habit of being grateful for them.
Contrast: difficult people, challenging circumstances and other events that you don't like or want.
Get in the habit to appreciate them for the opportunity that they are giving you to become a better person, to be more aware of the vibration that you are sending out to the Universe and for the opportunity to choose LOVE instead of FEAR. (you can read more about love and fear on the Abundance Manifest blog from last week)
For this last ingredient in the formula I want to mention one of the most beautiful AHA moments I've had while listening to an inspiring talk about gratitude:
Remember!! Fear is just an emotion. And as every other emotion it is generated by a thought. Fear is an illusion because more often than not, the thought that generated that fear, is not a valid one. You are abundant and that you live in an abundant universe where there is more than enough supply for everyone. And you have all what you need to create abundance and money within you.
YOU ARE THE SOURCE OF YOUR ABUNDANCE
When you bring money into your life, you are not taking money away from anyone else. You are tapping into that flow of money and abundance that is already there and that is available to everyone.
This is a truth. The truth of who you are and the truth of the Universe that you and I live in. Any other thought or belief that you have about this is something that you have been programmed to believe. It might seem valid, real and very true to you because that has been your experience in the past, but it is not true.
Fear is just there to remind you that there is something that you want, and that you have no idea how to get. It is there to remind you that you are thinking a thought that is not feeling good. It is there to remind you that right now you are sending out a vibration to the Universe of something that you don’t want and therefore repelling your desires instead of magnetizing them.
So get in the habit to appreciate the fear for the opportunity that it gives you to be more aware of your thoughts, of your energy, of the vibration that you are sending out. Appreciate the fear, for the opportunity that it gives you to get more clear about what you want, and to practice your free will so that you can CHOOSE a more magnetic thought.
It is Magic Monday and as you set your intentions for what you want to create this week, I encourage you to intend to become more loving, more grateful and to take the first steps towards becoming a magnet to your desires.
