Know Your Motives

"As long as one keeps searching, the answers come."

-- Joan Baez

Why? Why? Why?

Asking ourselves 'why?' helps us delve deeply into our main motives -- why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, "Why am I ...?" Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

"Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ...."

There's Hope!

"No matter how painful our early experiences were, our Essence cannot be harmed. Our Essence is waiting for the opportunity to reveal itself. In a very true sense, we are waiting for the opportunity to become ourselves. Our spirit is yearning to break free, to express itself ..."

"And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity�all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply."

-- Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

Attract Money with One Little Thought

Attract Money with One Little Thought by Wendy S Betterini

One of the more common mistakes people make in trying to attract abundance is moving too quickly. They try to leap from chronic lack to massive abundance in a single day and get angry when it doesn't work. Not only is this approach incredibly frustrating - it cannot work!

Just as you can't transform from couch potato to professional athlete overnight, you can't build up your "abundance muscles" instantaneously either. If you try to force it, you'll only create more blockages.

Attracting abundance is easy if you take it one step at a time, and you do that by starting with one little thought. And this one little thought should be just slightly better than the thoughts you usually think about money and abundance.

If your thoughts about money usually go something like this: "I never have enough money. I'm so sick of struggling to pay my bills. It's not fair that other people have so much more than I do. The universe must be punishing me for something. I'm a bad person, I don't deserve to be wealthy. I can't get ahead no matter what I do."

You can't jump immediately to thoughts like this: "I am a millionaire. I always have plenty of money. I am living in my dream home. Life is good!"

The energetic frequency of those two lines of thinking are way too far apart; you cannot jump from one to the other instantly like that - your mind will simply keep bouncing right back to those chronic, negative thoughts because that's what it's used to doing.

However, what you CAN do is choose thoughts that feel a little more believable but are still better than the thoughts you normally think.

For example, thoughts like this are easier to stick with: "Somehow everything always works out, even if I have to juggle a few things around. I do believe that more money is coming to me. I do believe that the universe can provide everything I need. I'm willing to trust that I will always have more than enough."

Remember that your thoughts are MAGNETIC. Every thought you think starts attracting more thoughts that are on the same frequency. A thought like "I never have enough money" will immediately begin attracting more thoughts along the lines of never having enough. A thought like, "I do believe things will get better" will immediately attract more thoughts of trust, belief, and optimism.

Those thoughts will trigger corresponding feelings (like confidence, peace, all-is-well) and you will begin radiating a better signal to the universe, which will then alter the results you are getting in your physical surroundings.

How to Choose One Better Thought

If you're not sure how to start choosing better thoughts, start with the most chronic negative thought you have. It may be one of these:

I never have enough money.

I hate being broke.

What did I do to deserve this?

I must not deserve to have money.

I'm not good enough to deserve abundance.

I must be destined to be poor.

The universe (or God) must hate me.

I have to work really hard to receive money.

Choose the one that resonates most strongly with you (or come up with your own if you know what it is) and write it down. Now, consider what kind of thought would feel better to you in relation to that statement.

For example, if you chose "I hate being broke" as your chronic thought, you might write a statement like, "I can imagine what it would feel like to have plenty of money, to buy whatever I needed and really enjoy life." Does that thought make you feel better about money? If so, start saying it repeatedly throughout the day!

As you do, you will begin to gradually transform your thoughts from a focus on lack to a focus on abundance. And as you begin to feel better and better about money and abundance, you will begin to draw more of it into your life.

This is truly the easiest, least painful way to begin transforming your thoughts - just ONE LITTLE THOUGHT at a time.

Giving Choice

Giving choice

"Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give."

-- David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I've come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can't know what's best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

"The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance."

-- Samuel Butler

"What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead."

-- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
