One major stumbling block many people experience when attempting to attract more prosperity and abundance into their lives is the perception that they must wait for some power greater than themselves to give the go-ahead. It's very common to feel this way!
Years ago, I used to ask for greater abundance all the time (beg for it, actually), and then I'd wait anxiously, growing more and more impatient when it didn't show up. Perhaps you've done that too? The problem with this activity is that it enhances the perception of POWERLESSNESS. When we do this we are holding a belief that "someone" has to approve our request, and we are at the mercy of their decision.
What if I told you it's not true? What if I told you that YOU have the power to DEMAND your rightful abundance, right now?
The Law of Attraction takes its cues from YOU! It doesn't think, question or judge. It doesn't wait for you to become "good enough" or more deserving. It simply delivers what you expect to receive, period. If you're not sure what you've been expecting in recent weeks and months, take a look at your life circumstances. Are you struggling with financial lack? Feelings of emptiness and frustration? Feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness?
EMBRACE YOUR POWER!
Below you'll find three simple steps to reclaim your inner power and use it to create a more abundant life:
1) Believe you have the power to demand your rightful abundance.
The universe responds to your own thoughts, beliefs, emotions and expectations. Whatever you believe and focus on the most is what you're going to get! If you consistently reinforce the belief that you are powerless and you need to wait for the universe to grant your wishes, you'll be waiting for a long time!
Begin immediately to acknowledge and embrace your own power. You are a magnificent, dynamic creator in your own right! You DO have the power to decide your life circumstances - whether involving financial issues or anything else.
How much money do you want to have? What would you consider to be "enough"? Once you've gotten clear on what you want, DEMAND that it be so! Get angry. Get powerful! Tell the universe that you're not going to settle for lack anymore and you are calling forth the material resources and abundance that you deserve - NOW!
2) Believe you deserve it.
Speaking of deserving, you must convince yourself that you deserve to have what you want. Do you consider yourself to be a good person? Do you believe you deserve to be comfortable and happy? What would you do with your life if you had plenty of money? How many people would you be able to help? Are you willing to give yourself that opportunity?
If you feel any twinges of doubt or uneasiness when you ponder these questions, you probably do not yet have the level of belief in your own worth that will be necessary to receive your rightful abundance. Begin working on boosting your self-worth each day by speaking kindly to yourself and affirming your value as a person. The more strongly you believe in your own worth, the more easily you'll be able to open up and receive the things you want.
3) Believe that it's already yours.
Once you've demanded your abundance, you've got to convince yourself that it's already yours - simply because you choose it to be so! Imagine that someone told you they would be sending some money to you, and you knew without a doubt it would be arriving shortly. How would you feel? Confident, happy and expectant, right? Feel that way now! There is great power in holding this mind-set! I call it "active faith." You simply choose to KNOW that your intentions will manifest.
It's important to point out that "demanding" abundance and prosperity does not mean you are being greedy, selfish or ungrateful! Rather than seeing this activity as that of a petulant child, choose instead to see it as an act of confidence and choice by an empowered person. Know that you do have the power to choose your experiences, and you need not apologize or feel guilty for wanting to live an abundant life. Be grateful and appreciative of what you receive, and you will receive more!
