Attracting Abundance – What’s Stress Gotta Do With It?
Posted Apr 05 2011 12:00am
Today’s topic on my self help blog:
So how does attracting abundance work. If you’re reading this, you probably want to manifest or attract prosperity and abundance, or do so quickly. But the more urgently you want it, the BIGGER the roadblock that might be holding you back.
Case in point. I just talked to a friend this morning who was getting ready for a very important phone conversation about a big contract – and he was stressed out because he really NEEDED the money.
I can certainly relate. I’ve been there, and I still find myself in that spot much more often than I would like.
But I also know this:
If there is one thing you can do to improve your odds of attracting abundance, it’s to reduce the stress and focus on the positive outcome you want.
And that’s no matter what it is you want.
Sure, it’s tough to step back from your NEED and get into the space of happy anticipation and a bit of detachment from the outcome, which would be far more effective.
Does it work? Not 100% of the time. But here’s something to think about:
How often did you NOT get what you wanted and a few years later were REALLY glad you didn’t? It’s funny how things work out sometimes.
Okay, so that’s not what you wanted to hear right now. Me neither. But it’s something to keep in mind, if ony for the sake of reducing the pressure in the moment. And THAT’s what will help with attracting abundance!
In fact, if it’s for your higher good, chances are pretty good that things work MUCH more smoothly when you do calm down, focus on the positive outcome and in fact look forward to it (or something even better).
Basically, this means they work out when you don’t push them away. And stressing about things means pushing away what you want to happen.
Why you MUST let go of the worries and stress
The key is to let go of the worries because what you worry about you’re likely to attract.
Bill Burns told me years ago that if I worried about something, I may or may not draw exactly what I worry about into my life. But I will draw something along the line of my concern.
And here’s the quote I remember verbatum (about the “something” I will draw): “Trust me, it will be adequate.” Adequate to live up to my worries that is. NOT something I would want.
How to calm yourself down?
So how can you calm yourself down, let go of the worries, and get excited about what you DO want.
Abraham-Hicks are adamant about the importance of that, and so is Michael Losier. How do you do that? Just make it your mantra: “So what DO I want?”
Focus on that, and the other stuff will fall by the wayside.
This is something I didn’t talk about in my last blog, but I am a great fan of keeping a gratitude journal, which I wrote about last Thanksgiving, and reminding myself of things I’m grateful for on a regular basis, ESPECIALLY when I’m worried and stressed.
It seems you can’t really be grateful and stressed all at the same time. So how cool is that!
3) Get an “Attracting Abundance” Mindset
It also helps to build a mindset that consistently works at attracting abundance and prosperity. That’s what I tried to accomplish in my eMoney Magic program.
Your efforts in manifesting abundance are not going to work too well if you keep pushing all that prosperity away.
So what’s eMoney Magic all about? You can check it out in my post on why your money mindset is so important.
But here’s the challenge
How do you get that money mindset?
To start with, you should focus on identifying and working through your money blocks. And if you click on that link, you can get a freebie that gets you started
And then, get control of them by using EFT. In eMoney Magic, Brad Yates takes you through two super cool sequences of how to eliminate those blocks.
