Are you having financial difficulties? Does it seem to you that no matter how much money you put in the bank it disappears overnight? Do you feel like you're living paycheck to paycheck? Do you get filled with fear every time you see someone who's homeless because you believe it could happen to you too? How would you feel if you lost all your savings or if the stock market dropped 700 points tomorrow? Could you earn your savings back in a short period of time? Are you hoping that you will win the lottery or that your luck will change so that you can pay off your mounting debts?
Most people have a lot of fear and negative beliefs about their ability to earn money, to grow it, and to keep it. Many people have negative attitudes about families and individuals who have acquired money. It's difficult to not feel stirrings of jealousy rising when you see other people who have fine homes, sleek cars, and luxurious clothes. Perhaps you wonder why these people are deserving of wealth and why you're not. The moment you accept that your current and past financial situations have all been brought about by the workings of your own subconscious mind, that's the moment you'll realize that you can change your present and future relationship with money. To bring prosperity into your life you have to begin by changing the negative thoughts and beliefs you have about money. It will take mental self-discipline to change the way you feel about what money represents.
What Does Prosperity Mean to You?
How would you feel if you were prosperous? Can you imagine yourself earning $50,000 more per year than you make now? Could you see yourself living in a mansion with workers who wait on you hand and foot?
Everyone has a different viewpoint of what a prosperous life is. Throughout your life, your feelings about prosperity will shift. When you have a balanced combination of happiness, money, and a sustainable means to obtain income that exceeds your expenses, you'll be on your way to a level of prosperity that will make your life joyful and complete.
Curing Negative Beliefs About Money
We've all heard statements like "Money is the root of all evil" or "Money doesn't grow on trees" or "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer." Maybe you've heard people say things like "No matter what I do my debts are growing and my income's decreasing" or "My family's never been good with money" or "You have to have money to make money." If you're mired in financial difficulties and you continue to concentrate on your money problems, you'll never be able to turn your situation around. You need to create a new reality for your relationship with money and the way to do that is to change your deeply-seated negative beliefs about money and transform them into positive beliefs.
Many people believe that the only way to become wealthy is to work night and day either for an employer or to build a start-up business. If it's your belief that you need to work hard and throw your life completely out of balance to make money than that is the only way you'll be able to do it. There are men and women who have found a way to make money that doesn't require an hour of work for every hour of pay. Creating an invention, licensing your intellectual property, receiving royalties for a book you've written, interest on stocks and bonds, investments in real estate can all yield streams of income that are not dependent on an hour of work for an hour of pay. Contrary to popular belief, there are many ordinary people who have tapped into their subconscious minds to create new ideas for simple inventions that have yielded a fortune for them.
If you examine the life histories of wealthy individuals, you may be surprised to discover that many of them came from very humble beginnings. Before they could amass their fortunes they had to create a prosperity mindset for themselves. They trained their subconscious minds into creating a mindset of abundance, then their wealth followed, not the other way around.
Using Positive Affirmations
Many people work to change their attitudes about money, but they still have difficulties when trying to come up with positive affirmations that will work for them. It doesn't really help to go around saying "I am wealthy" or "I am prosperous." The reason this doesn't work is that your conscious mind may know this isn't true so it quickly rejects any affirmations you try to make. It's better if your affirmation is framed in such a way that your conscious mind doesn't reject it outright. Here are some possibilities:
"Every day I'm noticing new opportunities for me to make extra income."
"I'm opening my mind to receiving more money for the services I provide to others."
"Every day the money I'm making and saving will attract more money to me."
Even if you're in a situation that is the polar opposite of financial security, avoid voicing or thinking about any lack of funds you may have. Don't say things like "I don't have enough to pay my mortgage" or "My business is cash poor." Instead, think and say, "My sales are increasing every day. My daily efforts are moving me toward greater and greater wealth."
Using Hypnosis or Self-Hypnosis
If you don't think you're making progress on your path to acquire wealth, try influencing your subconscious mind through hypnosis or self hypnosis. You can provide your hypnotherapist with the affirmations you wish to use or you can practice self-hypnosis. Self-hypnosis is not a difficult process but it takes discipline. The first step is to find a place and time where you can be undisturbed for at least 30 minutes or more. Slowly, you release the tension in every part of your body. You breathe as deeply as possible until your body is so relaxed that you're intensely aware hovering between being awake and being asleep. In this frame of mind you can repeat your affirmations either out loud or mentally and they will begin to seep into your subconscious mind.
Using Subliminal Audio
Another very effective method for transforming the beliefs held by your subconscious mind is by listening to subliminal audio. The affirmations on these audios are recorded at a level which your conscious mind doesn't register or reject, but your subconscious mind still absorbs. By listening to these prosperity audios, you can change your subconscious mindset from poverty to prosperity. You'll need to listen for a few weeks on a consistent basis in order to replace your old negative beliefs with new positive ones.
Using Visualization Techniques
In addition to using the power of words and thoughts to move you toward prosperity, if you begin to visualize yourself in more prosperous circumstances it will help you to create a new reality for yourself. Imagine yourself driving that new luxury car and feel the feelings of owning it. Think of furnishing your dream house and how you'll feel when you and your family are secure financially and have enough to help others with the wealth you've attained.
