Tightness. Procrastination. Anxiety. Yuck!
Are these the words/feelings that you typically associate with the monthly (or bi-monthly) ritual of paying your bills?
If so, you may want to consider what impact your vibrational statement to the Universe is having on your future financial outlook.
The Law of Attraction - the most powerful law in the Universe - insures that "like attracts like." In other words, your experience around money today sets the stage for your experience of money tomorrow.
As the teacher Abraham reminds us, "You can't get thin from hating being fat. And you cannot attract prosperity from disliking being poor." As we focus on money and experience a sense of lack we become vibrational magnets for future experiences of financial lack.
To propose that how you hold the experience of paying your bills will effect your financial future is a radical shift - and this shift lies at the heart of the "Prosperity from the Inside-Out" system.
So, are you ready to play?
If what you've been doing up to this point has not produced the results that you are seeking, what is the danger of trying something new? You'll either see intriguing new results or you'll return to your habitual way of doing things. There is no possibility of loss from experimenting with an attitude shift.
(And just think how nice it would be if this stuff really worked!)
STEP 1) Shift the Way You Think:
As explained above, the first step in this experiment requires us to shift our perspective from, "As I pay my bills money flows out leaving me with less" to one of gratitude and appreciation for
the circulation of money through your life.
Consider the alternate paradigm reflected in the following two quotes:
"The universe operates through dynamic exchange...giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives." -- Deepak Chopra in The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
"If you want to experience abundance, be abundant and do as abundance does...[By doing what] a person who is feeling abundant does, you are now creating in your body an experience - at a cellular level - that you know yourself to be abundant. Money really only has a value when you release it - because then it empowers you to be/do and have something that matches who you are. And what goes around comes around because now you've gotten the truth of who you are and the Universe never says "no" to your thought of who you are - it only grows it!!!" --Neale Donald Walsch on Abundance
Both quotes suggest a 180-degree turnaround from the original thought that giving will leave us with less. As we consider bill paying from this perspective we find ourselves feeling freer and more willing to participate in the circulation of money (and money was meant to circulate - that is why coins are round!)
The experiment we are suggesting for this month involves paying your bills while holding the attitude that there is "more than enough." In other words, by acting "as if" you have more money than you need, truly having more money than you need will become your truth.
You know how it feels to pay bills from a place of feeling as if there is not enough (scarcity thinking).
What words/feelings come to mind as you envision sitting down with a large pile of envelopes, a calculator and a pen? Write those words down and know that they represent your current bill-paying "vibration."
Now ask yourself if the experience of paying bills would be different if you had access to unlimited funds?
Imagine for a moment that you had a huge sum of money in your checking account which was always replenished. No matter how much you put out there was always more than enough remaining.
If this were your truth, how would you experience paying your bills?
What words/feelings would you vibrate under these conditions?
Finally, would feeling that way lead you to act differently at bill-paying time?
