Money and the Power of Your Mind

Money is coming to meWith so many people today dealing with an ever increasing debt load, bankruptcy, foreclosure and even long term unemployment money has become a greater and more central stress factor in our lives.

When we worry about money problems, we run the risk of letting our whole life revolve around fear and the negative possibilities of not having money. The more you worry about money, the more you will notice every little cent that you spend. The more you are aware of how much you have to spend, the more you worry about how little you make. This can create a vicious cycle of negativity about money and spending.

If you have stopped to consider what is happening, you will see the obvious trap. If you are thinking about debt, you will see bills everywhere you go. Going to the mailbox will be a torture because (guess what) inside your mailbox you will find bills. You will also find letters from friends, birthday cards and maybe even a coupon book that will help to save money. But you won’t take notice of them because your focus is on debt, bills and lack of cash.

In order to gain freedom, you have to stop thinking about debt and lack of money (negative thoughts) and start thinking about the abundance already present in your life (positive thoughts). Visualize yourself going to the mailbox and finding a check or a book of coupons that will save you money at the store. See yourself having what you need and being grateful for all that you have. Don’t dwell on what you don’t have, but instead look to the future and to the blessings that you have today.

When you start to focus on all the wonderful things in your life, many which have nothing to do with money, you will automatically feel spiritually richer and more fulfilled. This in turn leads to a positive view of the future and chances to change your positive financial opportunities in the world around you.
