I think it’s safe to say that almost everyone would like to attract more money to them. In fact, money is probably one of the first things you think about when you think of the Law of Attraction and what it could do for you. That’s a good thing, not a bad thing. The more money you have, the easier it will be to live the life you want, help your friends and family live the life they want, and help out charities, the needy, or important ventures for the world.
But first, you need to attract money to you and create the wealth you want. We hear all the time that the Law of Attraction works effortlessly for us all day and every day and that we just need to get into the right mindset and state to make it work in a way that brings us the abundance we want. But, because of our habits and beliefs, it can be easier said than done to get into that mindset and state.
Esther Hicks has learned a lot about the Law of Attraction and how we are meant to live this life from Abraham, so it seems fitting that she would be a good place to turn to if we want to learn how to make the Law of Attraction bring more wealth into our lives. Following are some tips from her that I’ve found extremely helpful as I make the shift from attracting mediocre wealth to the type of wealth I want.
Tip 1: The Better Your Story Gets, The Better Your Life Gets
The rich just get richer. We’ve all heard that before, and we all believe it because we’ve seen it. But why do they get richer? Could it be because the story they tell themselves is so good that they can’t help but attract the circumstances, people, and situations into their life that make it even better?
Or, alternatively, think of someone who has no money and constantly tells a story about how they are broke and will never make enough money to pay the bills and live the life they want to live. Isn’t it true that they attract negative experiences into their life that helps their story thrive today, tomorrow, and the next day after that? Even if they get some money in their life, their negative story ensures that they lose it in some way or another.
When you create a story of lack or desperation around yourself, you contradict your desire for wealth. And the Law of Attraction says that you can’t have it both ways. You can’t focus on what you don’t want and then get what you do want. If your story is making you feel bad or desperate, then you can’t allow wealth into your experience.
So what can you do? Esther Hicks says that you need to tell the story you desire and then strengthen your story by visualizing what it is like to be living it. By doing this, you feel better about yourself and your life, and because you feel better, the details of your life will start to improve. You will start to see more positive circumstances, people, and situations in your life and you will take chances that increase your wealth because you will believe in your story and the possibilities that lay ahead for you.
Tip 2: You Get What You Give Your Attention To
Esther Hicks says that for everything thing you want, there is a counterpart that you don’t want. When you focus on what you don’t want, even if it’s in an effort to get it out of your life, it always comes closer to you. This is because whatever you give your attention to, you get. Therefore, you need to focus on what you want and NOT what you don’t want.
Instead of focusing on your bills, focus on how you can bring more than enough money into your life to pay bills.
Instead of focusing on the low pay you receive at work, focus on increasing your pay, getting a raise, or building a business that earns you more and more every month.
Instead of focusing on your bank balance, focus on your desire to have a large bank balance that gives you the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want.
Always put your attention on what you want, because when you put your attention on what you don’t want, the Law of Attraction says that you will attract more of what you don’t want.
Tip 3: Life Is On Your Side
If the Law of Attraction were working perfectly for you, then you would be telling everyone you know, including yourself, that life is on your side. You would feel lucky. You would feel like no matter what you did, things were going to work out. You would have confidence that everything coming into your life, both good and bad experiences, was there to help you attract the type of life you want.
That’s how you need to feel now. Even if you are in a place that could be better, you need to remember that life is on your side and the Law of Attraction is constantly working to attract what you want most into your life. So as long as you tell a good story and focus on what you want, life is on your side. Everything is working out for you. Everything is lining up so that you can get what you want.
For example, I know a few people who were fired and in a very bad spot financially in life. The ones that held on to the belief that they were let go from their job in order to move towards a better job that provided them with more of what they wanted, ended up in a much better place afterward. The Law of Attraction ensured it. But the ones that got down on themselves and believed that the loss of their job reflected who they were, ended up in situations that continued to prove their story.
Life is always on your side. If you are using the Law of Attraction to attract what you do want, then it is coming, even if it hasn’t arrived yet. Remember that and you will feel much better about where you are now and what is coming to you.
Tip 4: Appreciation Is Key To The Law Of Attraction
Gratitude and appreciation are different vibrational states. This is something I’ve recently started to understand, and it’s amazing at how your life changes once you get this simple truth.
Esther Hicks says that when you are focusing on gratitude, you often still have some focus on the struggle or what you don’t want. For instance, if you are grateful that you just made enough money to pay your bills, you are always focused on the fact that you barely made enough money to pay your bills. That causes you to have a lower vibration where it’s hard to attract what you do want into your life.
Appreciation, on the other hand, is the same vibration as love according to Esther. It’s allowing you to acknowledge what is happening, what you are seeing, the people in your life, and everything else, through the eyes of Source. It puts you in the energetic flow where you are able to attract more of what you want easily because of the lack of resistance.
Therefore, focus on appreciating everything in life. Recognize how amazing everything is in your life. Appreciate the people who are there for you. Appreciate the circumstances that arise and help you understand more about yourself and what direction you need to go in. Make appreciation an important part of your everyday life.
Tip 5: Do What Works For You
A lot of us live our lives based on what other people want. When it comes to wealth, we try to make other people happy as we make choices about our career, how we spend our money, how we save our money, and how we feel about money. But, it’s not your role to do what works for other people. It’s your role to do what works for you. That’s the only way the Law of Attraction can work to attract what you truly want most in your life.
If you are focused on what other people want or think, there is a hint of resistance holding back what YOU want most. You are debating with yourself if your desires are correct, and because your attention is shifting back and forth, you are not able to focus on what you truly want and align yourself with your desires.
I know that other people can be opinionated about money and wealth, but once you decide that you are doing your life for you, and not them, it becomes easier to ignore their opinions and live on your terms.
If you are in a relationship where you both have very different opinions about wealth, then you need to find a way to compromise that works for your desires. Conflict will keep you focused on what you don’t want, and that’s when the Law of Attraction will bring in more of what you don’t want.
Tip 6: Make The Best Out Of A Bad Situation
Right now, things are happening in your life because of your vibrational state. Esther says that your vibration is offered because of your thoughts. Therefore, you need to find thoughts that feel good if you want to attract things into your life that feel good.
Esther offers the advice to look for the best-feeling aspects of any situation. If you must give your attention to something, find something to feel good about.
For instance, focus on the fact that you can put food on the table. Or focus on the fact that you have a roof over your head and money has helped you do that. This will help you have good thoughts that will help you attract more things to think and feel good about in your life.
She further suggests that you pivot yourself from bad to good feelings whenever possible. You can do this by looking for a better-feeling way to approach a situation.
Tip 7: Stop Thinking In Terms Of Shortage
When it comes to money, don’t buy into myths that tell you there is not enough money to bring wealth into your life. If you do, then you will be creating negative thoughts and feelings towards money, and you will attract more shortage into your life.
And when it comes to time, don’t tell yourself that you don’t have enough time left to create the wealth you want. If you do, you will definitely keep yourself stuck in a state of not being able to create the life you want.
There are many stories of people creating wealth out of nothing. There are many stories of people creating the life they want at all ages. Think in terms of ‘I can because life is on my side’, not ‘I can’t because there is not enough…’ and you will find that life feels better and more things, people, and experiences, come into your life to help you get to where you want to be.
Tip 8: There Are Only Two Ways To Look At Money
There is only lack or abundance. If you are focused on lack, then the Law of Attraction will bring you more lack of money. If you are focused on abundance, then the Law of Attraction will bring you more abundance.
Esther says that you might be assuming you are focused positively on money when you say things like ‘I want more money,’ but the truth is that you are feeling some sort of fear as you speak these words, and therefore you are really talking about not having enough money. And the Law of Attraction will bring you more of not enough money.
Tip 9: Financial Success Does Not Require Hard Work
When you buy into the belief that you need to work your butt off in order to acquire wealth, then the Law of Attraction says that you cannot get wealthy without working your butt off! Think about that for a second. That one belief could hold you back from attracting wealth unless you are willing to spend hours every day working hard.
Esther says that financial success is not about hard work, it’s about being in the right alignment of thought. Therefore, adopt the belief that with the right mindset, thoughts, and feelings, you will do what needs to be done to attract wealth into your life. Then, you can start to keep your awareness open for what needs to be done next and let the Law of Attraction bring you the wealth you desire for being in alignment.
Tip 10: You Don’t Need Money To Attract Money
I remember my grandmother telling me that money attracts money. She didn’t know anything about the Law of Attraction, but she did think that money in your wallet was lucky and brought you more money – especially when gambling. I grew up with that belief because it always seemed to prove right for her. When she had money in her purse, she easily attracted more money to her. I realize that the Law of Attraction was working in her favor!
But Esther says that you don’t need to have money to attract money. Wealth comes from being in alignment with Source. It comes from thinking positive thoughts about money and the rest of your life. It comes from feeling appreciation and having positive beliefs about yourself and what is possible in your life.
Therefore, if you don’t have any money in your life right now, you are not excluded from creating wealth in your life. The Law of Attraction is there to work for you, and when you start focusing on creating wealth, you will be given ways to create it, no matter where you are now.
