Weekly Words of Wisdom Q&A: Guidance, Direction, and Truth
For the conscious, heart-centered business owner, entrepreneur, and professional who is most likely working way too hard to BE the best that they can BE.
Master certified coach, Judy K. Katz, your manifesting and attraction authority and mentor, answers your most pressing questions for creating a life of meaning and purpose while enjoying wealth in all areas of your business and personal life.
This week’s question comes from Emily who resides in Portland, Oregon.
Judy, I have been following the teachings of Abraham-Hicks for years. She talks about the importance of focusing on what we want in order to attract it. That makes total sense to me.
However, when it comes to money, I find it difficult to keep my attention on having it. I can’t seem to align with having enough. Instead, my mind dwells on not having enough money, which is what I don’t want. How can I turn this around?
Emily, thank you so much for your question. I know this is a challenge for many people who are consciously working with the Law of Attraction, particularly when it comes to money.
Identifying your desire for more money and knowing why you want it is a critical step to consciously and deliberately manifesting more money. However, here’s the problem that makes focusing on what you do want difficult and what you can do to make it easier.
When you’re at the point of realizing that you want more money, it is most likely accompanied with emotions of fear, anxiety, and worry because you’re living the opposite or the contrast that you don’t have enough money.
Contrast, however, is not the problem because contrast is natural; in fact, there is a natural law of opposites. Everything has its opposite. Contrast serves because it brings into focus what you do want. It also shows you what you have been believing in and having faith in – lack and limitation.
Here is the problem. Attempting to focus on the idea that you do have enough money, perhaps by saying affirmations over and over to yourself such as, I have plenty of money; an abundance of money is mine now, etc., will just produce more fear and anxiety because a huge part of you will not believe this.
I know this is true because I have made this very mistake myself! It never works. In fact, it is sure to trigger your survival flight, fight, or freeze reactions. Now, this is a problem. Your survival reactions will mire you more deeply into what you don’t want because what you don’t want is being perceived as a threat to your life; and that demands your attention.
When the flow of money going out is greater than the flow of money coming in, it produces a lot of stress, however, the truth is, you are not going to die. Unfortunately, your fight or flight reactions will take you over if you believe in lack over the Truth of abundance.
So, how can you work with these difficult feelings and achieve resonance with the Truth? Actually, the best way out, is in. Here is a quick and effective way for you to reduce the power and energy from your difficult emotions and stressful thoughts:
- Become consciously aware of what you are making your situation mean, primarily about you. i.e., My financial situation means that I am a _________. This makes me feel _________. (This perception of yourself is likely creating your financial situation to be experienced as a threat, a threat to your identity. Remember, you are the one making this up.)
- Become present to the sensations in your body as you feel your difficult emotions. Just feel them and breathe deeply into them. Don’t fight them or deny them.
- Identify what you don’t want and what you don’t want to feel. Write it all down.
- Now, turn this all around. Write down what you do want. By writing down what you do want from a space of peace with your present financial situation, you will be free and “at choice” with your desire. This is where creation begins!
As you focus upon what you do want, recall a Universal Principal of Truth – Abundance is the nature of your Source, and it is your birthright because it is who you are. You’ll gain the emotional capacity to feel your way into this truth. You are a powerful, deliberate attractor of your reality!
Who you become in this process is the greatest gift, and I would say , the point of it all!
I invite you to check out my online program, “Make it REAL” audio/workbook that will walk you through this process. It will help you “see” and “feel” your desired outcomes. It will help you Believe!
My best to you for all of the success and joy that you deserve!
In love and abundance,
“Dream it, own it, and make it REAL”
P.S. This is a weekly no-cost program that is open to everyone! Each week, I’ll personally respond to a question that I believe in my heart will help the most people. (You may choose to remain anonymous if you wish.)
It is my heartfelt intention that, in answering your questions, I will provide you with perspectives and Universal Truths that, when adopted and applied in your life, will set you free to attract what you want from a place of abundance and inspiration, rather than urgency and desperation.
