Laws of Attraction

October 17th, 2006 at 09:58 pm

Are there people on this site who write about the Laws of Attraction -- the notion that thinking and acting positively about money and abundance and thinking and worrying about money and lack of abundance will keep you poor?

I'll admit that I'm very skeptical of the concept. I am by nature an optimist, except when it comes to money, where I see six months down the line and can see what I will be bringing in and what will be going out.

Although I don't look six months down the line -- I usually look two weeks down the line, to the next paycheck, and now, I'm looking two days down the line, when I have to buy gas again and I don'y have the money to do so.

    I believe in LOA. I have watched The Secret and EVERY TIME I do what it had told me to do something had had happened that I wanted to happen...I own the Secret DVD. If you are going to go in, go in with an Open mind. I absolutely believe we keep ourselves Poor!

    I don't know if I believe it as a mystical-type thing, but I definitely think attitude makes a difference in everything. For one thing, if you're stressed out, you can't think clearly. And if your attitude is that things are terrible and you're doomed, you won't even recognize opportunities that come your way. You'll be reluctant to try things. You lose the ability to brainstorm.

    But if you truly believe that when one door closes, another opens, you're more apt to keep your eyes open for chances to improve things. Someone asked me in a blog comment if I was feeling less stress now, after blogging for this long. I've been thinking about that. I'm not sure I'm less stressed, but I think I've become more confident that enough opportunities will come along to keep us going.

    Man oh man that's a tough one...I too am optimistic but the reality is, I have a whole lot of debt due to spending several thousands of dollars on credit cards. I mean, I had never taken a really nice vacation in my entire life, so I decided to fly with my younger daughter and her friend to Disney World when she graduated from high school. We had so much fun. It made me feel normal, mainstream if you will. Prior to that I bought a 4 yr old vehicle for my older daughter 8 years ago. Now I could have not spent any money but GEEZ! life is short and if I wait until I absolutely can afford to purchase big ticket items with cash then I might as well just hang it up and live on the top of a mountain in Tibet. Then I could really cut my expenses. Truth is, these forums keep us aware of spending, especially on the little things and that is saving me a lot of money. My situation could be a lot worse. I am making headway and I bet everyone on this site is too. It's just that life is not perfect and our plans get altered and we have a medical co-pay here from an uenxpected visit to the doc and bada-boom! before you know it, you're broke again. But just by virtue of being aware of how I spend cash I know that things are getting better, maybe not as quickly as I would like but better. As long as I have my health and a jar of peanut butter, I can conquer anything!!!

    Hmm. Let me turn this around.

    Is a poor person poor because they are poor in money or poor in spirit? Poor in spirit probably. Are they poor in spirit because of their attitudes about money or about life? About life. See how money doesn't really figure?

    That's why I have an issue about this. You can't really expect that money will magically appear because of a positive attitude. Positive attitudes appear because of a positive attitude. Money magically appears when its managed and regulated - you know where its coming from, you know how you're spending it, you save a bit of it, and you put it in places where it will earn money for you.

    Check out the book The Wealthiest Man in Babylon - I think it will help you out.

    I believe too that attitude is everything because it's open your mind to see new oportunities but what open doors and create oportunities from NOTHING its your thoughts that attracts to you what your desire (or what you dont, it depends of what you think).

    I saw in my personal life how incredible oportunities in my job showed up after a few months of changing the thinkings that I had for new prosperity thinkings.

    The most dificult issue about this law of attraction, is that it takes sometimes a long time to manifest in your life and we usually don't have the "patience" to wait and soon we come back to our previous thoughts because it's more comfortable to think "it's ok that I am not rich, money don't bring happiness anyway" that thinking "I fell rich, I am rich, I want to be rich" while you are still poor, it's hard to be wishing for a long time while you wait for something to happen, the majority of people give up soon and only some people are mentally strong enough to keep up the time that it's needed to manifest in your life what they want.

    I've read that Donald Trump for example, waited 15 years to buy a building, and he never said "it's over, I will never have it" instead he said "one day I will have this buiding". I ask, how many people can wait so many time to be rich?

    Patience is the answer. I highly recommends a meditation from Dr. Wayne Dyer called JAPA, from Manifesting your destiny audio cd, try it, you will be amazed.

    Best wishes to all
