I thought I'd put this out there in case it helps someone. I've been thinking about all the things in life that come easily to me and have been trying to emulate that attitude in other areas, including finances. In my search I came across this text. I think it is a fantastic representation of someone in perfect alignment with money. It embodies so many of the manifesting techniques right here on IQ.
It would feel awful to read this text if you're feeling low about finances, but I thought it might help someone who has cleared a lot of resistance toward money and is trying to stabilise a new attitude. Maybe some of the statements can be morphed into Focus Blocks? It's just more stuff to play around with.
Thank you for this.
Lately I've been thinking a lot about money and my relationship with it. I want more money but for some reason I've never had too much of it. As I've become more aware I've noticed that I've had several issues and beliefs about money. Here are some of them:
That's the kind of stuff I found out about myself when I really started being aware of my thoughts. So I've been working on these issues lately and I think I'm actually starting to feel much better about the thought of money. It's just a thing that exists in the world right now and everybody should have their share. It's not good or bad, it just is. Why wouldn't you want to experience wealth and material abundance? It's an aspect of human experience. You don't have to make it your whole world, but it's a thing you can enjoy.
I actually have photoshoped a picture of my online bank account and made it look like I have millions. I put the picture as my wallpaper on my computer so I can see it everyday. It's starting to look a bit more natural everyday. So having my imaginary money I make imaginary purchases online sometimes. I look through houses and cars etc. and just think "Yeah I could easily buy that one but meh.. I think I'll find something even more better.."
I'm just getting accustomed the thought of actually having a lot of money and how I would actually act and think in that situation. So that "rampage of appreciation" you linked is very much appreciated! Thank you.

Worth reading again, so many things to assess, I'm intrigued... Thank you for all the above, the post and the comments. Great people out there, all willing to share their thoughts and helping others to improve, grow and better their lives. I'm aware of having jeopardized my financial independence, many times over... Today I'll play with my work and feel rich ;) Thou art awesome! Thank you again <3

It is late at night here, and I have had a wretched day (meaning that I made myself miserable all day). I really did not want to read your post, but I did, because you were kind to me; kindness is so rare lately- at least it seems to me. So I read it.
I try not to think about money very much; I do not know why, but I have always had the feeling that my present life was not to be about money at all. (The older I get, the more I believe in reincarnation. It does get easier as you age. It's nice to think that you might get another try, or perhaps, many more tries.) I spend money like water, but I try always to be grateful while I have it, and try to spend wisely. Actually, I try not think about money at all. The reading you presented was interesting to me. It would have been perhaps a great deal more interesting if it told me how exactly the writer made his/her money. I mean, exactly how. I have noted with a kind of amusement that a whole lot of writers who write about money never really say exactly how they got to where they are. The exception has been people like our @Dollar Bill who have been quite candid about it. But, in general, I decided long ago that this present life was not about money at all.
I could see how all those statements could certainly become a great series of affirmations about wealth. I would re-write the quote, listing each positive thought written. I would bullet them into a list, and post them, or read them until the paper fell apart. That is how I have pounded many new ways of living into my head. Repetition, repetition, repetition. Over and over.
You have given me something to think about, for this month, Wade and I are in trouble with money, and I am not sure even how we are going to go on. But Everything always seems to work out somehow. I try really hard not to worry (worry does not add an inch of stature to your height..said a Wise Man once...) How can I maintain an attitude of not feeling that money is not my "life issue" when all I have really ever known is poverty? I am not sure. But I rarely really feel poor, exactly. I just get anxious when I go hungry. But I find it ironic that you posted this right when I, perhaps for the first time, am seeing that I need to shift my focus. I also need to shift my power- get it back. But that is another issue.
Did I manifest this post? Interesting. Hmm. I find it neat how our lives intertwine- what I write helps you, and then what you write helps me. Nice.
Thank you, dear. You caught my attention very neatly and precisely. Good job!
Time for me to go think and meditate.
