Money and Law of Attraction: Your Veritable Fortune

Recently I posted a review of Money and Law of Attraction, the latest book by Jerry and Esther Hicks covering the teachings of Abraham.

One of my favorite lessons from the book is the importance of the vibrational place from which any thought or statement comes. As Abraham points out in the book, it's the vibrational alignment with what you want that is so essential in order to begin attracting that the level of inspired abundance and prosperity you desire (or whatever you want) into your experience.

In this video, hear Abraham themselves walk through this lesson as they point out the misalignment in something as simple as self deprecating sarcasm. Apply this lesson to your thinking everyday and see whether or not you begin attracting more money into your life using law of attraction.

What is Leadership and Who are You Leading?

Leadership is a topic which seems to always be front and center when it comes to personal growth and development.

And there are key considerations to the topic of leadership: Who are you leading? And who's leading you?

I've come to understand that's a bit of a trick question -- because the answer to either question needs to be "me".

If I'm not leading me first, then who would want to follow me?

The key to what I'm getting is who I'm being. And who I'm being is an "inside job" ... it's about my thoughts and the inner focus I bring which sets the basesline from I take action.

"The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude;
be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful,
but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not
arrogant; have humor, but without folly."

Jim Rohn

So when I am confidently being the leader of me, then I find and exhibit the balancing of those challenges Jim Rohn speaks of. I'm strong, kind, bold, thoughtful, humble and proud in my thinking and my words with myself and with others. And I find the humour in things. I operate in a relaxed and confident manner.

Your level of leadership is merely a reflection of your internal energy, your focus, your expectation, and your willingness to step into action.

I can either be a leader or I can be a victim.

So which are you? What decision are you willing to make for yourself today about who you intend to be. What example will you set today for yourself, for your kids, for your partner, for your friends, or for your co-workers?

So, given this conversation, what is leadership for you today? And who are you choosing to lead today?

Choose well.

Money and the Law of Attraction: a book review

Money and the Law of AttractionMoney and the Law of Attraction is the newest book by Esther & Jerry Hicks covering the teachings of Abraham. I was lucky enough to find a copy of the book available at a local book store in advance of the official release date.

It's a terrific read! What I like about all of the Abraham books is that they are laid out in a very easy to follow fashion and provide lots of helpful examples.

Perhaps the most significant aspect of the book for me is the notion of always being mindful of telling yourself a better story.

In the book, Abraham explains that our job is to align our vibration with what we want. That's it ... and yet it's the area where the vast majority of us have the most difficulty. We have difficulty because we're caught up in a story ... the story of "what was" or "what is", rather than the story of "what will be".

And of course -- by law of attraction -- we get more of what we focus on.

So the solution is very simple: focus our attention on telling ourselves a better story -- one that feels better and is focused on what we want. Start telling the story of what a life of inspired abundance looks like and feels like.

Abraham provides some clear examples of what a better story might sound like and so make it very easy to apply.

So the big take away from the book for me is to make a point of practicing telling myself a different story. And being diligent about doing so every single day, several times a day. Especially first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening.

I've already begun to see a significant difference in how I feel.

It's only one take away from the book, but for me, it's already made the investment in the book more than worthwhile.

So if you're wanting to learn how to use law of attraction more deliberately -- and you in particular want to better understand how to improve your ability to attract money and wealth into your life -- then go out and buy yourself a copy of Money and Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks today.
