Getting something we want can be a long process, especially if it’s something big or important. The first step for most people is to think about the object of their desire, to dream about it, and even envision obtaining it – this is proven to be of utmost importance. Adopting the correct mindset when reaching out for something we want can be a game-changer. That is the basis of the Law of Attraction.
Positively and actively thinking about what you want will make it easier to attain it, be it an object, a job, or even an emotion. Even wealth! It’s not simple, but it’s definitely not impossible – and with the right knowledge and commitment, anyone can learn how to attract money in their lives.
While this article will give you the basic steps of the Law of Attraction, a deeper understanding is attainable by reading Rhonda Byrne’s book The Secret, one of the most complete books to explain the mechanisms and intricacies of this important phenomenon.
Following the guidelines in this book, the process of attaining wealth with the effective use of thought can be split in four steps: asking, believing, receiving, and acting.
What exactly do you need and moreover, why do you need it in your life? These questions, though simple, are incredibly significant.
To get something, it is important to know what that thing is. When it comes to wealth, you might say you want to get money, but that’s not specific enough. First, ask yourself if you really need it. Then, define how much money you want to achieve and what you need it for. Do you need $30,000 for a new car? Or $50 for some yoga classes? Maybe you just want financial stability, and having at least $1,000 in your wallet at the end of each month is enough for you.
Write down a specific objective. Keep that note as a constant reminder of your goal and motivation. You can make copies of that note and put them in places you often use, such as your pocket, your computer, or your wallet.
Specificity is important when you want to manifest money (or anything else). The law of attraction works best when you know exactly what you need. That way, your brain visualizes it and gets used to the amount of money you dream about, as well as to what you’ll use that money for. Thus, your thoughts, actions, and feelings will be focused on your objective.
However, this is only the first step. How exactly should you think about money in order to manifest them in your life?
Harness The Right Beliefs
There are many popular beliefs regarding money that have a negative connotation, such as “money can’t buy happiness.” These thoughts are wired deep down into most people’s minds without them even knowing it.
What most people don’t know is that, by casting doubt on the positive effects of money, they’ll probably never attract a lot of wealth. Their beliefs create their reality.
In order to use the Law of Attraction properly, you also need to start having faith in money, This is the second step. Wealth is not bad if you learn how you look at it differently. If you see money as a harbinger of selfishness and vices, you will not attract them, in order to unconsciously protect yourself from getting corrupted. But, if you believe money is the ultimate resource that can turn your life around for the better, and it’s a useful tool to make your many dreams come true, then it will be just that.
There is a saying “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right”. We create our own reality about anything. In wealth – if you believe you can’t get rich, you probably won’t. Richness is a possibility for just about everyone – but not believing in it is a step back.
With that said, convince yourself that money isn’t the root of all evil and it can bring you happiness. Believe that wealth is something you can and should obtain. Think actively that you are capable of getting the money you want, in the amount you want, for whatever you want to do with it.
Reception And Gratitude
The third step towards attracting wealth involves your reaction to it, once you obtain it. When they get something they long for, many people selfishly believe they don’t have anyone to thank, besides themselves. That attitude couldn’t be more harmful.
According to the Law of Attraction, the right way to receive something is by embracing it and also by being grateful. Expressing gratitude towards others and towards the universe is of utmost importance. Give thanks for everything and things will change in your life.
For example, if you set your mind towards earning $20,000, be grateful when you receive the first $100 in your wealth journey. The simple act of thanking people, thanking nature, and thanking the universe brings you closer to your goals. Each step forwards means progress.
By being grateful, you show that you have learned how to receive. The universe is more prone to give things to those who know how to be receptive.
You have taken all the necessary steps to properly attract money. You have the right beliefs, and your mindset is completely turned to your goals. However, merely setting your goal, believing in it, and thanking the universe is not enough; you also need to take action and work towards your goal, much like you’re asking the universe to do. Cooperation with the universe is key.
Remember: you might become a money magnet, but magnets still need to get close to metals in order to attract them. In other words, you need to pursue your goals to attract them. This is mandatory to make the Law of Attraction work.
Acting towards making your dreams come true can be divided into two steps. First, make a plan. For example, if you need to buy a $1,800 brand new MacBook, and you need it in 30 days, then you’ll need to work your way to attract around $60 at the end of each day. If you want to renovate your house in 4 months for $1,000, you’ll need to figure out how to manifest, at least, $250 at the end of each month. Know what you need and how much you need.
The next step is acting in a way. Do you know that joke when someone prays daily to the universe: “Please, please, help me win the lottery” but nothing happens and the person gets upset. Then, one day, pretty annoyed, the Universe replies back: “If you want to win the lottery, how about you buy a ticket first!” The universe will give us what we need if we also do something towards that goal.
In the example above, you could save the change you’d normally spend on a sweet snack in the evening, so that $3.35 is spared. Start doing freelance jobs every month, so you can get an extra $250 by the end of the month. Take more drastic measures to save $60 every day. Start learning a high-income new skill, so you can get an extra $250 by the end of the month. Basically, do something to make your plan come true. The universe won’t do everything by itself.
To wrap it up: the beneficial use of influencing thoughts to manifest wealth involves knowing exactly how much money you need, as well as what you need it for. You have to discard whichever negative beliefs you have about wealth. Instead, put positive ones in your mind. Remember that money isn’t the root of all evil, it is an instrument that gives you freedom, safety, and helps you fulfill your dreams. Always be grateful for what you receive.
Attracting money with the power of thought is possible, but you need to take action. After organizing your mindset, take the next step and get to work, by planning and acting accordingly. You are a part of the universe, so cooperate with it and the universe will smile right back at you.
