Unlocking The Energy of Abundance
When you were little, you created a story about money and abundance. It was woven from your family experiences, cultural beliefs, and societal beliefs that you heard over and over again.
This story was put on repeat so often, that your brain decided to make it seem real for you. Instead of just a story, it became how you see the world and how you see yourself, and your relationship with money. It’s been guiding you for a very long time, even though the story may be causing fear, stress, lack, and not serving you for how you would like to experience abundance in your life.
Fortunately, stories and beliefs can be rewritten and rewired.
The following steps will guide you through the process of updating your belief system and rewiring them so you can align them with who you desire today. When we create new ways of believing, it allows us to create new ways of BE-ING and acting; and that changes your relationship with abundance, money, and how it is attracted in your life.
Cultivating Abundance – Steps to Rewire Your Belief System
Step One: Notice Your Internal Money Story
We have over 60,000 thoughts a day. Most of them are automatic and repetitive. They are like a record playing the same song over and over again. Most of the time, we don’t even question or give much attention to what it is playing in the background.
The first step in rewiring your beliefs and creating a new story is to become aware of what your song is playing about abundance and money.
Some of the lyrics may sound like?
- You don’t have enough money
- You’ll never be able to afford that
- Wanting money is greedy
- You don’t need money because you are spiritual
- You’re not good with money
- The more you give away, the less you have for yourself
- The only way to earn money is through hard work and sacrifice
- Dealing with money is such a hassle.
- The more I make, the more I’ll have to pay in taxes
- If I make more, people will think I’m snobby
- People with money are unethical and greedy
Begin to notice the lyrics you hear yourself saying, write them down. Don’t focus on changing any of your thoughts. Simply start to create an awareness of them.
Step Two: Challenge The Story
Rewiring your story means letting go of the old beliefs that no longer serve you. The ones that are causing the lack, stress, and struggle. An exercise I share with my clients is to write down all the reasons why they don’t have what they desire financially right now. Once they finish writing, I ask them to go back and underline all the FACTS. The Facts are only those reasons that can be upheld in a court of law and true for all people in all circumstances.
What’s left are just thoughts. And thoughts can be changed. So, notice what’s left and then ask yourself these questions.
1. Is this belief serving me where I want to be now or in the future?
2. Does this belief align with who I want to be in the future?
3. Does this thought belong to me, or did I hear it from someone else?
Once you know what you want to release, we can then reframe them into a more positive story.
Step Three: Write your NEW story.
For each belief that is no longer aligning with who you want to be or what you want to experience in the future, ask yourself.
1. What else could be true?
2. What would I like instead?
3. What feelings would I have if I had this new experience?
Example: OLD STORY
Having money is greedy. If I have more, others will have less. Write a new story. What else could be true? Having money allows me to enjoy life and contribute in ways that matter to me. The more I have, the more I can share and create a better life for those around me. What would I like instead? To be excited and joyful in receiving money and having an overflow I can share generously. What feelings would I have if I had this new experience? I would feel secure, safe, peaceful, confident, and excited.
Then ask what your part is in co-creating this experience and what is God’s part.
There is always a co-creating happening. For example, when you give your energy, time, and resources generously, money flows into your life in unexpected ways. Energy out always equals energy back to you.
Step Four: Put Your New Beliefs on REPEAT and with FEELING
FEELING is the secret. It is what replaces outdated beliefs with new, positive ones. Thoughts go out and the feelings magnetize people, places, and experiences, back to you. Just saying the words creates change. The secret to creating new beliefs that evoke change is to FEEL them as if they are happening now. In the present moment. And the MORE you say them and think about them with feeling, the quicker the brain sees them as something that needs to be stored to conserve energy. It becomes automatic and becomes your new story and belief system. To create your paradigms (your new way of being), place the word “I am” in front of each feeling word that you wrote down in step three: “I am secure. I am safe. I am peaceful. I am generous. I am confident. I am abundant.”
You can also create out of your “my part/God’s part” statements. For example, “As I give generously, the Universe organizes things in unexpected ways to bring abundance to me, even if I don’t see it yet. Anytime you notice thoughts from your old money story arising in your mind, repeat your new story with feeling. If you can, bring as many senses into the even better picture. Where are you? Who are you with? What are you doing? What do you see, smell, hear, feel? This paints a vivid picture that lights up the parts of the brain that see it as happening NOW.
You may want to have post-it notes around your home, car, or office, that remind you of these new beliefs you want to bring into your being. By replacing thoughts of scarcity, limitation, and struggle with ones of abundance, generosity, and ease, you will align with the energy of abundance and attract more to you. Be sure to remind yourself of the gratitude you have and see the abundance that is around you everywhere. Look for the signs of safety, security, abundance, and joy. When you acknowledge what you have now, your physical evidence will begin to grow and mirror the shift in your mindset.
Your brain has something called the Reticular Activating System (RAS) It controls our focus, and what we perceive, and is the gatekeeper of information. It connects our subconscious with the conscious and brings to light what we are looking for. What we focus on, grows. So, the more you focus on abundance, joy, and security, the more you will see it and the more can come to you.
