Bubbletalk for Money – Part 3 – The Law of Attraction
In the last article, I mentioned that as sentient beings, we all carry a vibration which has been proven with quantum physics and relates to The Law of Attraction.
Playing with the Law
We have heard about and been playing with this particular Universal Law for a long time. It’s now in the mainstream media and more people know about it. The premise is that like attracts like. We have certain vibrations that transmit matching signals, like a radio tower. Radio towers transmit and receive signals. Our energy transmits vibrations and is received somewhere else and these vibrations come back to us to match exactly what we put out. Now you get to ask yourself, “What signals or thoughts am I vibrating and sending out? What am I focusing on, creating or losing money?”
Fear, the Common Denominator
Fear is the common denominator of either not having enough money or not keeping the money you have. I’m sure some of you have heard about rich people that are afraid to lose their money or people in your situation who aren’t going to have enough money and you may be one of them. You may be thinking, “Gotta have more money, ‘cause I may not be able to keep it.” Or you may be thinking, “I don’t have enough yet” or “Every time I get enough, I lose it.”
So what is your fear, having it or not having it?
People also have a fear of having it. For example they may say something like, “What am I going to do with it, it’s a big responsibility.” Either way, the driving motivation is always fear. For instance, “If I have a lot of money, what are people going to want from me?” or “What will they expect from me?” “Are they going to like me for me instead of my cash?” “What kind of burden am I going to have?” Then there is the other side of the coin, “If I don’t have money, are people judging me for not having money and am I limiting myself because I’m not able to do what I want?” If you are thinking like that, then you will start judging yourself that you are just not good enough to get it, that you don’t deserve it, it isn’t for you or it’s just too hard. There is a lot of judgement that comes along with those thoughts along with the fear.
Another interesting thing about fear is money can soothe it. In other words, many of us spend money to avoid pain. When we have the money, we end up spending it all. It’s almost like an addiction. As I said, we think that having the money will soothe our fears.
Then there is the process of avoiding money altogether because we think if we have it, we may not be spiritually pure or it is too greedy to have too much money. Here’s my thought. It’s just as negative trying to avoid money as it is being attached to it.
Here’s why. If you are avoiding money, you are also avoiding part of the process of what is happening in your life. In other words, if you’re afraid to fail, you won’t get the money that the universe already has prepared for you. Some of us avoid it because we have a fear of failure or that we will get attached to it. So, again, if we are afraid to fail, then we have already failed. People who do not want to lose avoid failure, and the interesting thing is that those mistakes and failures can turn people into learners. The more we fail, the more we learn, the more we learn, the more we grow, the more we actually win. What I am trying to say here is failure is part of the process, so if you avoid failure, you could also be avoiding success.
The Comfort Zone
It doesn’t matter what level we are at in our quest for prosperity, we will confront our comfort zone. Avoiding failure keeps us from success. I will tell you right now, successful people fail more than unsuccessful people and learn as they do. As I have said many times before, the only failure is the failure to participate. Just think about how it works with athletes who are winners. They continuously fail until they get better and better and then they win!
Learning and Not Being Afraid to Fail
You too can do this with your finances. All of your learning experiences are just that, you are learning and not being afraid to fail. Here is where a lot of people get stuck. They step on their right foot and they don’t want to step on their wrong foot, so, they just stand there. Now, I’m not saying that is right or wrong, it’s right and left. It’s right foot, left foot, fall down and make a mistake, right foot, left foot, fall down, make a mistake. Then it’s get back up and keep walking. As you keep making those mistakes, you are learning and moving toward something. Just imagine a child learning how to walk, it’s the same thing.
Approximately seven out of ten millionaires have gone bankrupt at least once and the average is actually 3.5 times. So, if you have had to go bankrupt, you are in good company. It means that you are learning and moving and not afraid to participate.
What most people do with their Bubbletalk is beat themselves up, saying things like, “I made a mistake,” “I failed,” “I lost money” or “I don’t have enough money.” Whatever the issue is, it doesn’t matter, the idea is to just keep moving and course correcting. So, what I am eluding to is that money mastery is about course correcting without invalidating yourself and when we make mistakes it is natural to course correct.
