How To Attract More Money Into Your Life
Letting go can often mean having more, and having peace of mind.

In order to gain, we must let go.
We all want more money and more peace of mind in our lives, especially given all the uncertainties in the world today. The more chaotic the environment, the more we naturally want security and peace. We can have this and more. However, it means giving up old familiar ways of how we think about security. Letting go of what we know can be a tall order for some of us; even if it is the key to getting what we want.
The last couple of years have been a chaotic time economically. Chaos can bring with it new understanding and awareness, though. It has been a time to weigh decisions about money more deeply. We have all been directly impacted on some level by the current economic situation whether it is from increased prices at the grocery store, a drop in our 401Ks or having to make different choices about what we purchase and when.
No matter how we look at it, the current economic climate has raised our consciousness about money, how we spend it and our relationship with it. Some of us are tightening our belts while others are jumping in on the bargains to be had in real estate and the stock market. An optimist will see the current “crisis” as an opportunity; a pessimist will see it as a bleak and dreary time.
If I said that there is an abundance of all we need right now, many people would probably think I was living in a different country. However, there really is an abundance of all we need; it’s a universal truth. It is just a matter of changing perspectives. Generally, we tend to view abundance and prosperity in terms of quantity not quality. We have been conditioned to believe that the more we have or own the more abundant and prosperous we are.
Prosperity and abundance are not about having more money or things. Prosperity and abundance are a way of being, a consciousness and a connection to the wholeness of creation. We all have the potential for prosperity and abundance in our lives; it is the natural order.
When we think in terms of quantity—more of something—it can set us up to come from a place of lack, a belief that we don’t have enough. When we feel that we don’t have enough, we will cling to whatever it is we think we don’t have enough of because it gives us a sense of security. However, the act of clinging creates a false sense of security and works to block the natural flow. The only way out of lack thinking is to let go of old ideas that no longer serve us, let go of clinging.
