“Some of you believe that having a large sum of money will become a burdensome responsibility and tie you down. Not being able to pay your bills and worrying about money are also burdens, and can tie you down. You will not be tied down by money unless you believe you will be and set it up so that you are. What you believe is what you create. If you believe that a large sum of money is a burden, it would be good to change that belief before you make a lot of money or you will experience the money as a burden and a responsibility. If you have asked for a lot of money and do not yet have it, your higher self may be helping you change some of your negative beliefs about having money before it brings you what you have asked for.” Sanaya Roman, Creating Money
Money is the great preoccupation of many who seek to attract through the law of attraction. And often we don’t seem to get what we have wished for. Why is this?
Sanaya gives one reason in this quotation: We are not ready for what we have asked. The universe will hold off if what we are wishing for would be detrimental to us.
A second reason for a no-show is that we cannot bring us to truly believe in a large amount of money. Of course, we can say affirmations until blue in the face, but it will make no difference if we are not on the beam with the universe. Many of us have unrealistic expectations, and we know, deep within, that what we are seeking is an unrealistic expectation. We can’t just say affirmations and expect the universe to capitulate if we are not in line with higher laws. We would not even be using the law of attraction properly.
We need to be open to what we can to effect change in the amount of money we have. We also have to DO. Be alert to signals that give an indication of what to do next. There is a joke about someone wanting to be a doctor. This person affirmed, and affirmed, and finally the universe responded. When the booming voice responded, it said, “Apply to medical school.”
We laugh, but we do things just as weird in our everyday life in trying to attract money. Common sense needs to prevail.
And common sense does not preclude hope.
