You would definitely have heard of the Law of Attraction concept of tithing money for activating the flow of abundance in your life. What about the concept of spending more to attract abundance? That’s what I learned without even trying!
When I first moved away from home for my Articleship, my parents gave me 1 solid tip; never scrooge about accommodation and food cost even if it cost a little more than my budget because I would be obtaining something that would make me happy. This tip was followed by the assurance that ‘the money to cover the deficit would come from somewhere’.
I thought this meant they would be my safety net but surprisingly, the money did come from somewhere – always unexpected like a sudden bonus, tax refund or bank interest. The amount covered my deficit and I didn’t have to turn to the safety net!
Neither my parents nor I had heard of the Law of Attraction. Their view point was that their daughter needed to feel secure and happy in her own home and eat a proper diet. 3 decades later, I realize their tip helped to raise my money set point. Without realizing it, I allowed abundance into my life.
Want to allow Abundance into your Life by spending Money?
Both Creative Visualization and the Law of Attraction, have the concept of putting yourself in the ‘flow of abundance’ to obtain what you desire.
What this means is that when you give away what you have without fear, the Universe gets triggered to replenish your supply of that item with even more. In essence you raise your energetic set points about that item to allow the Universe to provide you with more.
When you change your mindset programming from one of scarcity to abundance, you allow more abundance into your life. This could be anything-money, friends, career opportunities and even love.
Here’s how it worked for me. Assured that I had a safety net meant that I could look at things differently. I wanted a kettle within my budget but then saw another slightly more expensive one with better features and after sale service. I stretched my budget and brought home a kettle which incidentally is still working 3 decades later. Where did the money come from? My salary slip was adjusted for extra taxes paid the previous month.
My commuting time was a killer AND I had to study after work for my examinations. I stretched my budget and found a furnished place with excellent metro connections for an extra Ten Pounds a week (a fortune at that time). The money appeared. I had passed my first professional exams which meant a promotion with pay increment that covered the extra cost plus a little more even after taxes!
I had raised my money set point to a higher level and the Universe responded by providing me the best for that new money set point sending me sources of money to cover the expenditure. I had started to accept money for what it really was – a currency to help me get what I really needed. I tapped into the energy of money.
When I look back, the price differential between my budget and what I acquired was not that much and I could have afforded it even if I did not have the ‘safety net’. Sadly, when we come from a place of scarcity and fear, even a small amount becomes a big deal. Even now, I give myself an error margin of 5-10% and being practical, do my research properly into all aspects.
The process is quite simple. Understand you money set points as they are presently for different items that you purchase regularly and see if you can raise your set point for some of those items where you wish you could spend more, say fruit.
Do you buy the cheaper fruits and cringe at the sight of more exotic fruits even though you love them? Change your attitude and money set point for a few days and buy the exotic fruit. How do you feel? I think you’ll notice that somehow the extra bucks are accommodated in your budget or new money appears where you did not expect it.
Essentially what you are doing is raising your energy level and sending a message to the Universe that you are ready to raise your money set points and allow abundance into your life. The other ingredients in this recipe for success is to truly desire the object of your attention, believe that the money will appear and stay focused on your prosperity mindset.
Since then, I’ve discovered more ways to unleash the energy of money which I’m sharing in my short evergreen teleclass Unleash the Energy of Money (click the preceding link or image below to learn more).
Back to my first foray into tapping into the flow of abundance, I assure you the proof of the pudding lies in the eating or practicing in this case.
How about raising your money set point then letting me know how it went?
