Imagine an airplane full of passengers destined for Chicago. The plane, fully loaded, leaves New York and flies non-stop to Chicago, and arrives in the airspace above the city. As it circles the Chicago airport – it is in the “realm of probability” for unloading its passengers at the airport. The plane is prepared to land, but what happens if the airport is closed that day? The plane is where it is supposed to be but the Chicago airport isn’t ready to receive it. The airline must then recall the plane to New York, because it cannot deliver its passengers.
Something very similar may be happening to you when you clearly ask the Universe for what you want, hold the thought of it in your mind consistently and anxiously await delivery. The Universe sends it immediately into your “realm of probability” always. But if you are not open to receive what you are asking for, the Universe cannot deliver it.
Why wouldn’t you be open to receive something you asked for? Because, often, even when you believe you are thinking about something you desire, you are actually thinking about the exact opposite of what you desire.”
In order to fully cooperate with the Law of Attraction, you have to keep your mind fully focused on what you want and not on what you don’t want. And that’s not always easy to do, because you aren’t fully aware of the scope of your own thoughts. If you are not manifesting your desires, even if you appear to be playing by the rules relating to The Law of Attraction, you may not be awake to some of your real feelings about money, about people who have a lot of money and about people who don’t. Your subconscious beliefs about money may also be preventing you from taking delivery of the desires of your heart.
If you believe that rich people are mean or selfish or “out of touch” with people like you, then it has to follow in your thought process that if you become a rich person, you may become mean or selfish out of touch, also. Since you don’t want to become like that more than you do want to be rich, the Universe is doing a very good job of providing what you want.
If you ask the Universe for money to start a business, and you believe that the only way to get money is by working hard, you are going to have to work long and hard to get enough money to start your business. The Universe may have money available to you from some other channel, but if you don’t believe that there is another channel, then the Universe can’t deliver. In other words, the Law of Attraction is always working according to the greatest focus of your thoughts, generated by your strongest beliefs.
Your current thoughts about money were hugely influenced by those who helped to raise you. The opinions of your parents and grandparents (or parental figures) about money, or people who have money, helped significantly in the formation of your current Prosperity Consciousness.
Of course you were also impacted by what you were taught in school about money, the way your spouse or partner deals with money, and your own life experiences with money, as well.
Think about the adjectives that you perhaps associate with money – dirty money, filthy rich, cold, hard cash – to name just a few. If you automatically perceive money (or people who have money) negatiavely, at any level of mind – conscious or subconscious – you are not ready to take delivery of money for yourself. A part of you is resisting receiving exactly what you are asking the Universe to give you.
The truth of the matter is that money is of absolutely no value in and of itself. It is simply a medium of exchange. You can exchange it for good things or bad things, soft things or hard things, luxurious things or serviceable things, loving things or mean things, opulent things or humble things – and guess who is in control of making those choices? You and only you.
Well, that’s the bad news and if you live in a “stuck place” where the manifestation of money is concerned, you have probably arrived there because of a series of events over which you had little control.
The good news is that you are never bound by your old choices except in your own mind.
