Manifesting a New Money Mindset
We could be racking up promotion after promotion. We could be paid $10,000 a month to be making someone else rich. We know that we are masters of our craft, the ultimate professional and a highly valued employee. We are sure that we could “BossUp” and have our own kick ass company but something inside holds us back. What stops us from manifesting the money that we need to live the life that we dream of? What impetus do we need to kick us into gear?
I know what I needed. I needed a new money mindset. Sometimes we think that we “know” something, until we realize that we don’t KNOW after all. Specifically, we intellectually know what wise words, good advice and self love sound like….but sometimes, what our head knows doesn’t filter down to the roots of our subconsciousness, which is where all actions stem from.
So what happens is that our actions don’t always match the words that we say we believe in. We won’t realize it until we start questioning the stories that we are busy telling ourselves.
“Before the truth can set you free, you need to recognize which false belief is holding you hostage.”
I recently just had a mental growth spurt. I’ve been enjoying growing in my blogging gig for awhile, albeit, not full time. I’m loving it. I’m learning it. I’m looking forward to the time when my blogging endeavors become the building blocks of my dream life. I got plans, baby!
The master multi-tasker that I am, I’ve also been nibbling on Jen Sincero’s “You are a Badass” and “You are a Badass at Making Money” (affiliate links) cuz you know, my badass self intends to get rich.
While reading and in between surprised snorts and laughing aloud because Jen has an amazing writer’s voice that is freaking hilarious, I’d reaffirm what I already knew.
“Yeah, yeah…I know I’m worth it. I know money is energy and can come to me as easily as the next person. I feel successful, I feel worthy, I feel that millions are just an arm’s reach away, all I have to do is grab it. I’m putting good vibes into the universe. I’m thankful. I’m love and light. I’m working towards my dreams. I see movement and growth….I’m open and in the flow….yeah, yeah.”
A new money mindset was needed because:
At the same time, the following was happening…
- You’ve been accepted to AdWords! – Ugh. I don’t think I want ads on my site.
- Have you activated your Etsy store yet? – Not yet. I have to research it more. I’m kind of a perfectionist.
- You should do affiliate marketing – I don’t know. It sounds complicated, plus, I have enough things to do.
- You should try GOFUNDME to get your dream off the ground- Engh, I don’t want people to think I’m asking for charity or coming across as scammy…
I know what your thinking….. IKR?! Whats WRONG with me?! How many excuses and obstacles was I making to tell money to stay away, no trespassing, keep out!
Keep reading, it gets better…..I promise.
Then one day, I was feeling extremely lucky and I bought a $20 scratch off. I won twenty bucks back and I heard THAT smug ass voice in my head….”See. I keep telling you. You get out of life what you put into it.“ (ie: work harder, strive while making someone else rich until retirement, then you MIGHT have the chance to enjoy life before your health starts failing and you die).
However, this time, instead of (dejectedly and unquestioningly) accepting that message. I stuck my finger in the imaginary face of that imaginary voice and I stated, “I REJECT that notion! Big money comes EASILY to many people and it WILL come to me as well!” (ie: I WILL receive the money I need to change my life NOW, while I am young, fine and fierce and do it on MY terms!)
Poof! In this exact moment, I knew that I finally got it! I flew over that mental hurdle that I’ve been metaphorically face planting on. I KNOW it! Instead of receiving messages (messages that, let’s be real, don’t love me), I was imprinting my message on to the universe and declaring what I want and that I deserve to receive it.
You know what that mythical voice of meritocracy said back? Nothing. Cuz it’s all bullshit that we have been ingesting through osmosis. Messages of fear, of scarcity, of playing it safe, of not striving for more than we have ever known cuz who are we to want and become more, to dare to be as amazing, awesome, rich or as influential as “they are?” Who am I to attempt to break free from modern financial serfdom and live the life that I dream of?
“If you realized the power of your thoughts, you would never think a negative thought.”
I am who I am. I am enough. I am amazing. I will what I will and I call forth prosperity and abundance of all kinds into my live.
- I reject the thoughts that I should be more educated to be rich!
- I reject that making money takes money and since I don’t have much I was SOL!
- I reject that others are more talented, thus more worthy than I!
- I reject the unknown being an obstacle to my future!
The mental breakthrough was just the kick starter that I needed to overcome the thoughts and doubts above that were blocks to my receiving abundance and getting my shit together so that my blog can grow and thrive.
