Let me ask you… Do you take responsibility for where you are right now, in this very moment? Do you accept that where you are financially is because of your previous lack mentality, and therefore in order to change your financial situation you also need to change your mindset?
If you do then that is great because you can go on to setting your intentions, but if you are not quite there yet, then let’s discuss responsibility and manifestation.
As a society we have the automatic inclination to blame others for where we are in our lives. It is the governments fault that we are getting charged so much tax, it is the employer’s fault that we don’t have enough money and it is the supermarkets fault for making the groceries so darn expensive.
No matter what your situation, it is always somebody else’s fault. Well, that mindset stops right now. Not taking responsibility for where you are will not only limit your manifestations considerably, but it will stop you taking the necessary steps to progress in your life the way you want to.
Nobody can manifest anything for anybody else, and because of that you need to realise that the manifestation starts from within. If the manifestation is within you and nobody else can manifest for you, then doesn’t it stand to reason that it is nobody else’s fault for where you are right now.
Remember, you are in the driver’s seat of your own life and so if you don’t like the way it is turning out then it is time for you to change it.
Assess Your Current Financial Situation
I am not delusional enough to think that you are going to be able to instantly stop worrying about where you are financially when you have been worrying about it for so long. I know what it is like to have bill after bill come in and to wonder how it is going to be paid.
Most law of attraction books you come across will probably never mention this to you because our current perceived reality is due to our previous limited beliefs and so by focusing on this perceived reality, we are actually not trusting that the money is there and is going to come to us.
Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The reason I am mentioning this to you, even though I know that there is an infinite supply and that you can create money at will, is that by assessing where you are financially right now you can get a good indication of where your mindset is firstly and also you can start to set up plans that will allow you to release any resistance while you are moving yourself from a poverty mindset to a prosperity one.
Yes, we know that the universe is always looking after us and always has our back and we know that if we trust that that we always have all the money we could ever need, we will never have to worry about money again.
But, in the meantime, so as to lessen the resistance you have to your current perceived physical reality, I think it is a good idea to assess your current financial situation, set up payment plans for your large bills (so you can then put them aside and not worry about them), map out a timeline for paying off any outstanding debts and set yourself up a loose budget that will allow you to recognise where you stand financially at this point in time.
I know that when I did this and became responsible with my money, I no longer worried about it because I knew we had enough regular income coming in to cover it. Although I knew that I had large amounts of money coming to me, it just allowed me to ease my resistance, stop the worrying, get into the vortex and start to manifest.
So, lets get started…
Step #1 – Assess your Financial Situation
Write down the income you have coming in every single week, fortnight or month and all of the regular bills/direct debits that are paid from your bank account each pay period. Write down all the debts that you currently owe and set an intention that you are going to erase that debt within a specified amount of time.
Step #2 – Set up Payment Plans for the large bills
I know when I had utility bills that were rather large and I didn’t want to stress about where the money was going to come from considering they all came at once, I rang the companies up and set up fortnightly payment plans which then allowed me to just let it go and not think about them again.
Step #3 – Map out a time and date for paying off outstanding debts
Now that you know what debts you must pay, figure out what date you intend for them to be paid off. You need to let the universe know when these debts are going to be eliminated and then the universe can get to work sorting them out. Don’t think about it anymore because once you have set the intention, if you don’t worry about where the money is going to come from, you will have the money by the time and date you have set. Set aside an amount to pay off it every week, fortnight or month, which will show the universe that you are starting to take action.
Step #4 – Set up the budget
The final step is to set up a loose budget where you figure out your regular income, your debits that are taken out of your account, amounts of the payment plans, the amounts of the debts you are paying and the amount that you are willing to give.
Once all of these are paid for then the rest is simply that which you can work with. Now that you know you have plenty you can quit worrying about it and just start taking inspired action to bring more wealth into your life.
If you don’t have the money that you are desiring now, then remember that you need to change your mindset from one of lack to one of plenty.
Now is the fun part… It is time to figure out what it is you are wanting to manifest and your reason for wanting to do so. It is time to create your manifestation list and attach as much detail as you can to it.
It doesn’t matter how many items you have on your list but the more items you have then the wealthier you will be. In fact, the wealthiest people in the world are those with the most on their list. I aim to complete a list of 1000 items, but you can have one with 100 on it if you like.
This list will include anything you are wanting to manifest, not just material possessions but experiences, successes and goals. It can be expanded on as something else that you desire comes up.
Some people may call this their bucket list and it is set up to be things they want to do before they die. However, I would prefer to call it my manifestation list because it includes things that I want to have and do while I am still living.
With each item on my manifestation list, and yes it does take time, I like to write a mini script about it (covered in the next chapter) so that when I look at the item on the list I can get into the feeling and the emotion associated with receiving it. When adding something to my list, I also write it in affirmation form such as “I am a billionaire”, “I have a brand-new Nissan X-Trail” and “My house is paid off in full”.
When I write my script (it only needs to be a few lines) I write it as though I have already received it. Remember, you already have received it because you have sent out your request and as soon as you are in alignment with its vibration it will be created in your physical form.
I will give you an example of one of my mini scripts for my request “I am a billionaire”.
I am so grateful for the never-ending supply of money that is coming into my life daily, from both expected and unexpected sources. I can’t believe how simple it is to have created the billions of dollars I now have in my bank account and how awesome it feels to be able to go to my 150 account every day and see that money sitting there. I can buy whatever I please whenever I please without thinking about it and I know that the value I provide others is always rewarded to me by way of further wealth.
