Part of improving your money situation & abundance is taking care of outdated and useless information that is taking up precious space in our mind.
It’s important to change your mindset by first dealing with the old junk, clearing out the clutter of outdated ideas and beliefs. Once you free up space in your mind, you will be able to add new positive concepts and form new positive habits toward money.
The reason you may be harbouring negative and outdated concepts in your mind in the first place is that you may have listened to our family and teachers when we’re young, taking on board their fears and phobias about money. Their lessons may have been well-intentioned at the time, but they can cause problems later in your life…
- Money doesn’t grow on trees… Did you hear this a lot when you were growing up?
- I’m not Rocker fella, I’m the other fella.
- Once it’s gone it’s gone…
If you are taught regularly that ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’ you learned that money is difficult to come by. Remember that your subconscious mind is there to help you and if it hears that you believe money is hard to come by, it will help you to reinforce this concept. It will actually go out of its way to help you maintain this philosophy and you could experience a life of poverty.
Your subconscious mind doesn’t question anything the way your conscious mind does. Your subconscious mind is like a faithful pet dog who will do anything it can to please you. If you tell it that money is difficult to come by, it will not argue with you, instead, it will agree and help you live that life.
If you want to change this outdated mindset, you will have to take some small, positive steps to prove to your subconscious mind that this ‘lack of money’ is not true.
By recording every little penny that comes into your experience and celebrating it with positive reinforcement, you will give your subconscious mind the EVIDENCE it needs to kick out the old outdated philosophies of ‘scarcity’ around money. I’m reminded about a famous saying about decluttering… if it isn’t useful or beautiful then it doesn’t belong in your home or office. The same can apply to your beliefs. If they are not beautiful or useful (paying rent), they need to get out!
Kicking the old ideas out of your mind will encourage your subconscious mind to go out of its way to bring you more positive experiences around wealth. It will start to find money and find ways to bring money into your bank account.
After working with this concept for 3 months, recording every penny and gift that I received, I was astonished to discover how much money I actually earn every month.
Because the money comes in in smallish lump sums it can be difficult to understand that you are actually receiving a lot of money.
- Two days ago, I found £10 on the floor of a cafe. Wow.
- I needed £1000 for a specific project and set the intention that the money would be in my bank account within 3 days. I must be getting better at manifesting because I did it twice. Not only did the £1000 show up on the third day but on the 4th day another £1000 showed up. Double WOW!
It took me 3 months of practising a positive mindset toward money to be able to achieve this in my ‘actual time-space reality’ (bank account).
If you started today, how long would it take you?
