Can you say, "Hello"?

I find this post by Phil so inspiring that I keep it on my desktop to read it time and again. I am glad to share it with you with Phil’s permission. Read on…

Could You Use More Money?

The answer is probably, “Yes.” Am I right? (OK, that was a no-brainer. Let’s move on now.)

A more important question to me is:

Can you fully, by that I mean JOYFULLY, PEACEFULLY, HAPPILY and GRATEFULLY imagine already having PLENTY OF MONEY, more than you need, much more than you currently have, much more than you currently have any need for?

As you may have already heard, there is a value in being able to imagine in this sort of way. Done correctly, it raises your mood, delights you, uplifts your ‘vibration’ and changes your relationship to others and the Universe.

“The important thing is that you actively put yourself in the vibration you must for your desired outcome to be created.” - Multimillionaire John Assaraf, from p. 168 of his book ‘The Street Kid’s Guide To Having It All’

Consider this excerpt from a 1976 interview between a Mr. Chandler and Arnold Schwarzenegger: Chandler asked Arnold what he was going to do after he retired from bodybuilding. "I'm going to be the number-one box-office star in all of Hollywood," he CALMLY responded. [emphasis mine] Remember, this was when few people outside bodybuilding knew he existed.

Chandler said he had to fight to keep a straight face as he was asking how he planned to do that. Arnold's explanation seemed "ridiculously simple," but Chandler never forgot it: "What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then LIVE INTO THAT PICTURE AS IF IT WERE ALREADY TRUE." [emphasis mine]

“It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects, and, therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich.” - Wallace Wattles ‘The Science of Getting Rich’

"Everything is about Law of Attraction. Not law of going out and getting it. It's not law of deserving. It is not law of earning. It is just law of achieving vibrational harmony with that which you want, and then it cannot not come. It must come to you." - Abraham-Hicks

But then, to imagine in such a way will COST you. Everything of value has a price to pay. If you are unwilling to pay the price, you cannot get the benefit. So, what is the cost of imagining fully, already having something you want?

The cost is, you must give up something quite dear to you: You must, at least temporarily, give up your current sense of yourself and reality and what you think is possible.

Now, a superficial look at this kind of ‘paying the price’ would seem to be a no-brainer. It seems we all would easily exchange a more limited view of ourselves and what’s possible, for a more unlimited, expansive and rewarding view. But the truth is often otherwise.

Our current view of ourselves and life and its possibilities seems SAFE. It may not be great, but at least it’s somewhat good or it might even be painful, but it’s what we KNOW. And to even temporarily give up the KNOWN for the UNKNOWN can be, well,… it can be SCARY. (Of course, it can also be EXCITING, uplifting and invigorating, but this ‘reaction’ usually comes better with a bit of practice.)

This brings me to the concept of COURAGE. What is it to be courageous? It is not, as some think, acting without fear. More often it’s acting IN SPITE OF fear.

Have you ever said a friendly, “Hello,” to someone you didn’t know, but were very attracted to? If so, you probably know what I’m talking about.

Back to image of having PLENTY OF MONEY.

Can you say, “Hello,” to having plenty of money in delightful, peaceful ways? (Or, any other great thing that you want?)

Just a thought.
