Some people, especially the very dogmatic, believe they need to suffer in order to be closer to God. They think they have to be poor, miserable, and humble. Therefore, having a lot of money isn’t a priority in their life, because it’s the opposite of that suffering. So some people think, “God doesn’t want me to have a lot of money.”
The truth is, it is your birthright to have everything your soul desires on this earth. There is a great book by Napoleon Hill called Think and Grow Rich that talks specifically about this idea. Hill writes that we should strive to get what we want because we are expressions of the Universe — we are all interconnected and all belong to the Universal intelligence. We are, in essence, here to manifest. Our purpose is to create things, like creating electricity or inventing the car. Through the power of thought, we manifest things in our lives.
Money, although it is not everything, is one part of that picture. It’s your choice how big of a part it will play in your life, and why. For some people, that is what they choose to focus on, and that is what they accomplish. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, some people are uncomfortable with that for a variety of reasons, such as how they were brought up. They might find fault with asking the Universe for money or visualizing themselves possessing a lot of money. That idea might conflict with the way they were raised.
However, it’s important to remember that money is nothing more than energy. Think about it: trillions of dollars are exchanged via the computer from one continent to the next. When you go to your bank account, you don’t physically see dollars, you see a number on a screen that shows your balance.
If money is energy, and I’m using the Law of Attraction to attract what I want, and we are all energy, why can’t I tap into that energy frequency level and bring what I deserve into my life? If you think it’s bad, it is bad. If you think it’s good, it is good. It’s really up to each individual person and his or her level of awareness.
It’s like Henry Ford said – “If you think you can or cannot, you’re right.” The same applies to your attitude towards money and using the Law of Attraction to manifest it into your life.
