Surely you’ve heard of the Law of Attraction, yes? It’s one of the Universal laws (there are seven of them and you can read more about it by checking out this site.) The Law of Attraction, in a nutshell, states that “birds of a feather flock together”. Like attracts like.
And I get it. It makes sense to me and I totally get it. Using it to bring abundance into my life (abundance being anything from jobs to friends to health) seems like a good idea and occasionally, I’d actually manage to manifest a few things: a house that was perfect for us, jobs that seemed to fall into my lap – stuff like that. But I’d never been able to do it consistently. I have a friend who is a magnificent manifestor – she thinks it and damn if it doesn’t just show up. I don’t know how she does it. Heck, she doesn’t even know how she does it! But she does it for sure.
I’ve mentioned Andrea Hess of Empowered Soul before on these pages. She’s a dynamo – full of ideas and processes. I’m amazed at all she’s done in a short period of time to bring big concepts down so they are easier to understand. I’ve completed Level One of her Soul Realignment course and generally like to listen in on her tele-calls and classes because she has a lot to offer someone on a spiritual path.
One of the courses she offers and what is really a foundation of her work is called “Money Manifesting Mastery”. She took the idea behind the Law of Attraction and showed how to make it work easily and consistently. I was missing one part of the whole process and once it was filled in, I was able to manifest almost as good as my friend!
The Missing Link
So, what was the missing piece for me? Quite simply: taking action here in the physical. Andrea likens it to the difference between thinking about baking a cake and getting up and actually baking the cake.
Let me explain:
In order to manifest money (which is really just energy), you have to assign it an energetic address. For example, let’s say that you want to manifest $100 and have said that this amount of money in your bank account would make you feel relieved, or joyful or whatever emotion you choose. Once you’ve figured that part out, then you have to do some real down-to-earth things to bring that energy into your life more.
So, if you’ve chosen joy as your energetic address, you start to think of things that make you feel joyful – that bring more joy into your life. And you do as many of those things as you can. That lifts you automatically into that energy.
And since you’ve said $1000 = joy, you’ve set the vibration for the money to follow. The hitch is you have to do the real life actions to create that energetic state for yourself to attract the money.
(Of course, that’s not all there is to the program – I’m taking it down to its very core. Andrea goes into great detail about all the other pieces of it in the course itself.)
Manifesting in real life
Last December, I decided I would manifest $4000 (yes, I was aiming high, wasn’t I?) and that $4000 would equal joy. My work was to bring more joy into my life. Easy, yes? And I had to choose things to do that were sort of out of my comfort zone but that brought me joy. I listed a bunch (like thinking of the word JOY when I answered the phone at work, or greeting people on the street each morning … easy stuff like that) and trusted that the money would show up.
I sort of lost my zest for it around the hectic holidays but kept on bringing the joy as best I could. January 1st rolled around and I had manifested about half of the $4000. Which wasn’t bad because I really felt like I half assed it. So, half ass dollar amount came through. (Still, $2000 I didn’t expect wasn’t bad, eh?)
Admittedly, I was disheartened when it all didn’t come through in December and really had to look at what I did (or in this case, didn’t do) to cause that to happen. In January, I re-did the entire program, choosing a different word and a different dollar amount.
Here’s what I chose: Empowerment = $1500. My 3d actions included going to the gym (which is pretty far out of my comfort zone), speaking up when I might not otherwise, taking some risks in opening myself up … things like that.
On the first day after choosing the word empowerment, I opened the sliding glass window to my area at work and it shattered into a million tiny pieces. Interesting. (Perhaps I need to take it down a notch, eh? heh) I kept getting that word (empowerment) on my daily affirmation cards and I even found articles drop into my lap about empowerment. It was pretty cool. The trick is not to assume it’s all coincidence. Because it’s not.
This is getting long so I’ll cut to the chase: at the end of the month, I had $2600 in my bank account that just showed up. I hadn’t planned on how it would show up, hadn’t given one minute of thought as to how I was going to bring that money in. I just did my empowering actions and trusted.
One of the most important parts of this is to do the preliminary work (energetic address and then the 3d actions to bring that state to you) and then detach from thinking about how it will show up. Andrea suggests you engage your mind in a fun game – like wondering in what form it will show up.
But show up it will, IF you do that prelim work. Otherwise, if you half-ass it (like I did), you’ll get half-assed results.
