If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that whatever is afflicting them is not their own fault. (Of course, this isn’t true in most cases, but it’s a comfortable lie we love to tell ourselves.) And this certainly applies to being poor. If you held a convention for people who believe they are responsible for being broke, you could hold it in the corner booth at Denny’s. But you have an extraordinary influence on how wealthy or poor you end up…
Broke people usually have a negative energy around money in general. The emotion they most associate with it is fear, stemming from their fear-based anxiety about their perceived scarcity of money. Throw in some anger for not having enough, and finally toss in some jealousy for the people who have more.
Wealthy people usually have a positive association with money. They view it in terms of the choices and freedom it can provide them. They associate it with happy times of pleasure and enjoyment.
Here’s the critical connection…
Like everything in the universe, money broken down to its ultimate level is energy vibrations. Energy can be attracted, and it can be repelled. If the emotions you associate with money are fear, anger, and jealousy, you’re going to attract a whole hell of a lot less of it then you will if your associated emotions are freedom, pleasure, and enjoyment.
Since your relationship with money plays such an important part in how much of it you have – it’s worth some evaluation and adjustment on just what that relationship is.
