A great illustration was brought to me today during a reading. Someone came to me with the common question around manifesting money.
We’ve been through the visualizations, the law of attraction exercises, and deep diving into energy blocks.
Spirit then showed me to shift our thinking. After we have visualized the money pouring down or the rivers of money flowing to us, now it was time to think about the consumer.
They showed me this visualization. Imagine you are on the other side, surrounded by white and on a white cloud. Another spirit approaches you and says, “I need more money.” What would you think? Well, yeah, we all do, right?
Instead, rewind and start over. Instead imagine you are approaching other beings and saying, “You know I have this great thing, it will make you happy, relaxed, peaceful, euphoric, give you a break in your day….” or something that is appropriate to your product or service.
Then I see the consumer spirit being happy, interested and following you where you want to go. Being grateful for the service or product that provided upliftment the spirit is more apt to click the link, leave a positive review, buy more, etc.
So next time you feel you’ve exhausted the methods of pulling money or flowing money to you, think of the customers perspective. How is what you are selling going to help them? Then visualize them with feeling being happy, grateful, at peace, relaxed or something else.
Something was revealed to me today. Ever since my energy healing training, the seemingly random cravings to buy or consume seemed to increase. There would be a carrot or a reward at the end of doing what I wanted, such as an angel or God sign (repeating numbers, feathers, coins, signs). However, sometimes this would lead me into problems such as gaining weight, or going over budget. As I wandered the store today I pondered why I would still feel a craving to buy after meditating, when “they” know I have a budget. As I say to myself I have a budget, I usually have this thought inside me that says “that’s not the metaphysical way of thinking”, “that is scarcity or that is limited thinking”. The universe is abundant. However through experience I know that to continue to ignore a budget or your diet leads to putting yourself in a place where you have to do something more extreme other than maintenance to get back to your goal.
I received the wisdom while walking around that there are so many things in the world that you could buy. Zoom out and think about the entire world, all the bazaars and marketplaces in Moracco, Israel, India, China and so forth. You will not be able to buy from them all and store it, so there may always be a wanting or craving at some point, no matter how rich you become. Knowledge of this, the concept of “knowing” that there are so many things out there you could buy, that could bring joy in the short moment, but you could not possibly buy them all for lack of space, budgetary reasons, or in order to keep a slim body, this concept will help you understand that you can’t possibly please all of these forces that want you to buy, whatever their motivations may be.
There are a lot of people that ask for financial abundance and money, or people have jobs connected with these retail items, so there’s a energetic pool out there tugging you to buy, creating these cravings. These forces aren’t always necessarily evil it’s just there’s a lot of energetic pulls and you can’t satisfy them all. Even Bill Gates can’t buy everything and store it, he has a limit too.
Understanding that people are asking for abundance and you can’t possibly satisfy them all, will hopefully give you a release by separating you from the emotion and give you peace.
My recommendation? Don’t look at it as an evil craving and attach good or bad to it, look at it from the knowing that there’s a lot of beings and energetic forces out there. Know that you can’t satisfy them all so don’t feel guilt or loss. Keeping a budget, or keeping a caloric diary, will help create the boundaries and limits that help you succeed in your goals. They help you to know when to stop listening to that craving to buy or consume the next thing. Those forces pulling you to go outside of those limits aren’t necessarily evil, they just exist. Buddha talked about the wanting, so did Jesus, and both recommended balance.
Set your boundaries, write them down, when the wanting comes tell them you are at your limit. After this, if its supposed to be, then watch the magic happen to being it to you if necessary. If nothing happens, you didn’t need it, it was for a different reason such as someone needing to keep their job or someone asking for abundance.
When your budget or calories are up, have a list handy of free or zero calorie activities that make you happy such as walk in the park, listening to music, watch tv, watch a movie you already own, play a game or one of my favorites, take a nap.
Some people find it difficult to dig themselves out of old habits, particularly when it comes to not keeping within their budgets so they can save money. With any habit or lifestyle change it helps to have an easy monitoring system so you can track your progress regularly. When you first begin, monitoring for weight loss is done daily, for budgets it is best to be done daily & weekly until you have a rhythm then you can go monthly.
I have a spreadsheet I look at daily where I track how much I spent that day, then it totals for the week and month. Before you start tracking you need goals and limits you are trying to achieve. To figure out what goals and limits you should have to track you need to look at your past “actuals”, which is essentially what you’ve actually spent in the past few months. You can go back, 3, 6, or 12 months and take an average based on category; categories being groceries, gas, utilities, entertainment, etc. You do this by downloading all your statements from your checking, credit cards and anything else expenses would come out of or go on. After you have all your statements on Excel (often downloaded as *.csv files), separate them by month and combine them in a spreadsheet, all you need is the transaction date, description and the amount. In the next column assign a category such as income, gas, groceries, restaurant etc. Once that is all filled in for each category you can do one of two things based on your Excel expertise. You can filter by month, then by category and sum the amount for that category, saving that number to the side. Or, you can create a pivot table, by month, category and then amount (recommended). With this information you can average by month what you spend on each category. Then create a budget or a standard from which to compare your actuals with every month. If you find that you are spending more than you are making, adjust your budget accordingly but realistically. Typical areas easy to cut are restaurants, groceries, entertainment and clothes. Once you have you plan in place, start a spreadsheet in a place where you will see it everyday, on your cell, your laptop, or at work. Put at the top the categories you need to monitor (not utilities or non-variable expenses like rent, just variable non-essential spending) then list every day what you spend in each appropriate category. Sum by day and by week.
Once you start doing this you can catch yourself at an earlier period of time when you are overspending in a certain category such as going out to eat or clothes. Then you know by let’s say Wednesday that you need to stop going out to eat because you’ve reached your limit for that week on restaurant expenses. At this time I find that I usually get more creative or I start appreciating more of what I already have and own. Particularly what it comes to groceries you can get creative in the kitchen and start mixing and matching what you already have at home. This also helps you spend more time with what you’ve already bought if you’re one of those people who buys things because they interest you at the time but don’t really use them or appreciate them after you’ve brought them home. At the end of the month you will feel much better about how you’re doing financially, your credit card bills will not be much of a surprise and you’ll feel more in control of your expenses. how to create a budget, how to create a budget
