This is a topic that keeps reappearing in my life. Once and for all, I want to rid a very old belief that denotes having a (9-5) job (working for someone else) in order to make (a substantial amount of) money. I authentically believe that I have what it takes to be successful doing what I love. Yet, there is some underline fear of not being able to and gain the quality of life that I desire. It stems from my childhood, yet the funny thing is, I (now) have a fiscally successful and happy parent who is doing what she loves. She makes a great living off her creative skills. It wasn't always that way, especially during my formative years, and I know I picked up lack and scarcity and fear in those times. I grew up in a spiritual household with open-mindedness in very big ways, so I should know better. We have had MANY discussions about my fears surrounding money and doing what I love. I have been encouraged to visualize, know it and work toward my goal and the money will appear. I know this to be true, as it has happened in the past as I've continue to build my business, yet I fall off the wagon, from time to time, which kicks me back to my starting point (vibrationally speaking).
I have worked with Focus Blocks, EFT, Meditation, Brainwaves and many processes. I know I can make a change, and I desire to, tremendously. I'd love your feedback and suggestions.
How do you (or did you) reprogram your own mind into KNOWING that you can (and are) making money doing what you love and a enjoying the quality of life you desire, without having a 9-5?
This is really your answer to your question.
Manifesting is all about allowing what is already done. Fear is anti-allowing. Worry is anti-allowing. Doubt is anti-allowing. "But what if...?" is anti-allowing. "But how can i get there?" is anti-allowing.
Knowing is allowing. Being already there is allowing. Feeling good about your desire is allowing.
I believe you know this already. But you still live in a reality of fear, doubt and "but how can i get there?". So i will give you just a suggestion on how to clear fear, worry, doubt and all this other resistance. Do this exericise as much and as often throughout the day as possible. You know when this exericise works when you read your question here on IQ again and you think to yourself "Damn! How could i ask this question? I already have what i want in my mind. I feel good because i know i have it! I don't need anything else!"
First you need an "instant-clearing-method" such as
You must be able to clear the resistance in about 5-10 seconds after spotting it in your body. So first choose one method that works for you that fast.
As bashar says, don't jump off the cliff if you don't 'know' you can fly.
You don't have to necessarily give up everything to act on your excitement. You can start by taking whatever steps you can to act on your highest excitement & at the same time honor your belief systems. Eventually & synchronistically, you'd attract whatever opportunities you need to no longer rely on anything other than your highest excitement.

My answer is in line with @Gumnaam's, but I'd like to add my personal story.
I am currently doing what I love - I started my own company a year ago, making healing orgonite jewellery. A few years ago this would have seemed impossible! I was lucky enough to have a mentor helping me out with this, a LOA coach whom I speak to once a month. It's not necessary, but I recommend it.
One thing that I have learnt is that we usually make this process much harder than it should be. When we follow our highest excitement and joy, things go our way. Forget about negative beliefs for a while, and just get really clear on what it is that you want to do. Visualise it, see yourself waking up every day and showering the Universe with appreciation for the gift of being able to do what you love. Then start doing it! And only do things you enjoy! While I still had a 9-5 job, I was making orgonite pendants, although not to sell yet. I also did other things that I really enjoyed - I started making a website, I read other people's stories about them doing what they loved for a living, I daydreamed about having my own company and waking up every day loving my life. Follow your highest excitement, as Bashar keeps telling us - it's so simple, yet so effective.
It took a while for me, as I couldn't focus positively all the time, but after almost a year of building my vision, I was made redundant from my job. I was pretty panicked, but I knew that this was a blessing in disguise as it would have taken me long to take the plunge otherwise. I still had many fears, but I decided to make a go of it. It was hard to stick to my path - suddenly I manifested many recruitment agents contacting me with jobs that paid well and seemed really good (except it wasn't what I wanted to do). I only told the most supportive and LOA-savvy people in my life of my real plans - I told everyone else that I was working on finding a "real" job, as I feared that they would mirror back my fears to me otherwise (this was a wise move, and I recommend it to everyone doing this sort of thing).
I tried to spend as much time as possible in joy - even though I didn't have much money coming in, and I had to sign up for unemployment benefits, I was enjoying making orgonite, and enjoying not having to go to a 9-5 job. And over the course of a few months, things took off, until I was able to make a living off this.
It's still a work in progress. The path of self-employment can be challenging, and I've had some ups and downs. Over a month ago, I decided my current prices were not sustainable, since I found that I was working 24/7 and just barely making ends meet. So I raised my prices. As soon as I did though, all these negative beliefs and lack of self-worth came up, and predictably, my sales plummeted. I spent ages trying to heal negative beliefs, doing EFT, visualising, etc, to no avail. I was in a real panic when I spoke to my coach a couple of weeks ago, rent was due and my bank account was in the negative. She alerted me to the fact that I wasn't spending time doing what I really enjoyed. Work had become stressful, and my internal dialogue was full of "shoulds" and "must-dos".
So I decided to chill out a bit, even though it felt counter-intuitive. I had booked a weekend trip to Amsterdam with some girlfriends back when I had some spare cash, and now I couldn't afford it (I had paid for the flights and accommodation, but had no spending money). They offered to lend me the cash to spend while I was there, and although I was uncomfortable with the idea, and I knew it wasn't "responsible" of me to go on holiday when I had zero in the bank and rent due, I decided to go. Hey presto, sales came in that weekend and I ended up only borrowing a bit from them and being able to repay it as soon as I came back.
And the week I came back, I decided to take some time off work. I laid on the couch for two days reading and watching tv programs. It wasn't as easy as it sounds - I am used to working long days and weekends these days, and there is always something that I should be doing! But I was firm in my resolve to chill out, and (importantly) to truly enjoy it and do it without guilt. Guess what - best week of sales in a while!
Like you, I've spent a lot of time focusing on belief-clearing methods and trying hard to get stuff to work. Just chilling out and following my excitement seems counter-intuitive and nearly impossible sometimes. But it works. Like @Gumnaam says, you don't have to quit your job before you're ready to, but you can start working on things that excite you that are in line with what it is you want to do. Make it easy, and make it fun!
Hi figure8shape, I love your question because it all really boils down to "how to manifest with ease" and I've got just the thing for you. No more soul searching questions, no more what should I believe, no more how can I adjust my beliefs, no more how's or why's, the only thing you do need is to put it into practice which takes about five minutes and allow it to work for you.
Here's a short description of how to go about it
place a graph like this
on a clean horizontal flat surface and align it with magnetic north. A graph such as this separates vibrations just as a prism separates sunlight into the seven colors of the rainbow. Everything emits characteristic vibrations containing information necessary for it's identification; dimension, energy, force, etc ... this phenomenon can easily be demonstrated in practice using a pendulum and a drawing like this
Hold your pendulum above the center of the graph and think "butter" and your pendulum will swing in a certain direction, now think "leather" and the pendulum will swing in a different direction.
The lozenge symbolizes polarities or the horizontal and vertical forces of universal energy, it also symbolizes "as above so below".
Write your wish in the form of a brief text and place it on the center of the graph, place a photo or other vibrational pattern of yourself on top of the text, leave everything in a calm place. That's all there is to it.
The physical visible world is always mirrored by a non physical invisible counterpart, when you pose the graph correctly orientated towards magnetic north on a horizontal surface such as a table and place the brief written wish together with your individual vibrational pattern in the form of a photo or a snip of hair, piece of fingernail ... you are effectively giving precise instructions to your subconscious to perform a particular task, you have constructed a composite pattern which it understands and follows to the letter. Your mind is a goal seeking organism, give it a precise program to follow and it will immediately put that program into action.
The graph is a precision instrument designed to constantly maintain subtle energy structural links between where you are at any "now" moment and the target, it's constantly auto-readjusting, I like to think of it as acting like a gyrocompass guided spacetime shuttle constantly maintaining equilibrium and the best possible trajectory towards the goal. Using the graph in this way is mental programming, you construct and lance a software program for your subconscious and simply know that it's working.
How long it takes depends on where you are on your journey, you'll find that things will gradually fit into place.
You can make your own graph or obtain it from Servranx graph n°14-sélecteur psychologique
I have been very uneasy about not being in regular work since February, but I do not want the 9 - 5 type job that most people have to do, either.. which has created internal conflict for a good few months now. All I can increasingly do is keep working on the personal projects that I have going on whilst thinking as positively about the future as possible and be confident that these projects can turn in to revenue streams, to the benefit of both myself and the wider community.
Thinking of the positives, the universe has provided me with the tools to be currently comfortable living off my savings whilst not in work. This has to be the sort of positive that I can build on. Following my dreams, exploring life and being increasingly creative as possible should help me to gain financially as a bonus, whilst avoiding the withering rat race of regular employment. That's the hope, anyway! :)
I like this question; This because I can relate to it. I don't want a nine to five job either. It would not let me do what I want, or more to the point, do what I know I should be doing. I crave to travel. Visit every country in the world and then start again. It would be a never ending journey for me and my girlfriend. Even if I had a job that paid enough money, when would I have the time to travel? I spend 98% of my life without money and trapped. I believe in time this will change, but until that change gets here I am stuck. I do not believe my life is a reflection of what I am thinking. I believe there is a separate force at work making sure I cannot have what i need or would love to do. I have to travel. I feel good when i visit another country and It brings me alive. I am the same as you in that I need to have the money. It is the difference between what I do and what i don't do.
I can think about anything and everything. There is nothing I cannot think about, but the problem is that nothing happens. My life remains the same. Day in day out, my life is the same old drudge. Maybe I am thinking about drudge? Why would I do that? So, what is going on? Before I can have what I would like I have to destroy all that is stopping me. I do not believe it is me that is stopping me. i believe there is another force at work that we have yet to understand. A force that has nothing to do with loa, but related to make sure we live the life we are meant to live and not the life we would like
I have had some success with loa. I love photography as well as travel. I use film and digital cameras. recently i thought about some filters for my film camera. I explained my problem at my local camera shop and they gave me the filters there and then. I work in a shop and one day a few years ago now a customer asked me about a book. I tried to find the book for the customer. I ended up explaining to the customer we didn't have the book, but could order one for him. He said no thank you and left the shop. The next day at work I was asked to put some books out and the first book I picked was the book the customer wanted from the day before. Loa does work, but seems to work when we are not interested. It has happened too many times for me to say it is all nonsense. Loa sends me what I want when it is no use to me, but don't know why. Take care Chris
