Why Is It Taking So Long? - Looking Up Newsletter

April 16th, 2012
Looking Up Newsletter

Good morning,

Now that the economy seems to be slowly crawling back, I’ve heard from a number of friends, family members, and colleagues that have decided to dust off their copy of “The Secret” and give it another try. Today’s article is meant to help those of you that have made that same type of decision, to try working with The Law of Attraction in order to create a life of abundance and prosperity.

Good luck and have fun!

take care,
Skye Thomas

Quote of the Week:

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. - Jane Goodall

Money is neither my god nor my devil. It is a form of energy that tends to make us more of who we already are, whether it's greedy or loving. - Dan Millman

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. - Thomas H. Huxley, scientist, educator

Feature Article of the Week:

Why Is It Taking So Long?

You have been studying prosperity and abundance and you understand that there is an endless flow of wealth moving about, money is passing hand to hand, as are goods and services. You have decided that you want to jump in and participate in the game. You want your fair share of the abundant flow. You have found in your studies that your attitudes around earning money stink and you have done a lot of work to change your belief systems. You really do believe that you are good enough and worthy of some cash rolling your way and you have been diligently affirming to the great cosmic forces that you are ready, willing, and able to accept your piece of the pie. So where is it? Why is it taking so long?

First of all, your mind imagines your wealth a whole lot faster than the real world could ever possibly move. That is part of the lesson, learning how to keep the mind steady until the manifesting has actually occurred. In the end, you are to realize how fast or slow the event occurs is really in accordance with your own ability to hold your thoughts and some other subtler dynamics that we will discuss later. Ultimately you are going to have to give the world time to catch up with your wonderful daydreams of the good life. Not every single one of us who is trying to manifest a rich abundant lifestyle for ourselves can win the lottery. There isn’t enough lottery money to go around! So, be patient.

What about taking action? Have you actually started working at doing something? If you are sitting on the couch watching television every night and stating your money hums during the commercials, don’t hold your breath. It’s not coming. You have to take action and it has to be the right action. The whole point of a flow of wealth is that it is not dead end pooling into your bank account. It is moving through you and around you. Being in the flow means that you are a participating member. You have to be putting out some sort of effort that warrants the flow comes through you. Ask yourself honestly, are you giving something of value to the market, to the universe, to the flow? If you are not, then you had better think of something worth giving that is equivalent to the order that you placed while sitting on the couch earlier. If you are not putting out much, then do not expect to receive much. That’s how life works.

Giving to the flow of wealth is not necessarily about working a nine to five job. If you are staying home with your children and working hard to create a wonderful beautiful home and haven for your family, then you will be blessed with treasures and wealth that could bring tears of joy to your eyes when you really take the time to see just how much you have received. Remember abundance is not always going to show up in dollars and cents. It could be a home, running water, indoor plumbing, fresh fruits and vegetables that you did not have to farm, milk without owning and maintaining a cow, eggs without the mess and noise of chickens, a car instead of having to walk everywhere. Make sure that you have not already been blessed with a rich abundant life of love and luxury compared to most of the peoples of the world. Perhaps you give love and support to your friends and family. What do you receive in return? Are you remembering to count your blessings? Do you truly see what it is that you get in return?

“Yeah, but I want more! I want money and lots of it!” Come on admit it, how many of us have thought that to ourselves or maybe even said it aloud? Okay, so you don’t just want to be spiritually rich or third world country rich, you want to be America rich. You do understand that you really have to give something of value in exchange for that money? Look at the American people. What do they want? What do they need? What do they fall in love with? What are they obsessed with? How can you meet a need in the American people that will equate to the financial situation that you desire? Pick something and take action.

If you are working your buns off, the money does not flow, and you are not having a good time doing it, then you need to chalk it up as a learning experience and move on to another idea. No harm done, just keep searching your own talents and skills until you find something that you can give to the world that will return to you the lifestyle you envisioned for yourself. Better make sure that you are not working so hard that you never get to spend that money. Did you remember to affirm balance and harmony along with that paycheck? Did you remember to pray for adequate time off from your work so that you could laugh and play? Perhaps you should choose a gift that you love giving. You know what they say, do something that you love and it will never feel like work again. I have also found that it is true - if you love your work, you will naturally excel. Maybe not at the fast speed that you want, but the expertise will come, as will the money.

If you have found your bliss in your career and you are grateful for the gifts life has given you but the money still is not flowing, then maybe you need to look at whether or not you are really ready. Perhaps you need to learn some lessons about organization, time management, or balance first. Look at your life realistically, are you emotionally and spiritually mature enough to be given the kind of money you are asking for? When you are, you will realize that you are fully and completely in the flow. Take what you need from life’s abundance and enjoy.
