Donate a dollar to help us continue this work

Hello and welcome to the December 2010 edition of Horizons Magazine. The end of another year! A good time to reflect on what went right in 2010 and what you want to continue doing in 2011. A good time to consider what changes you might want to make, for anything that isn't relevant or helpful anymore. One thing I add each year is to do more creative visualization to help attract the things I want to experience. You might want to add that one also.
I often get asked for specific words to repeat to attract money. I did a blog post entitled "The unconscious mind's automatic rebuttal to An 8 minute creative visualization workshop to increase dollars." My original post is below and in parenteses are probably the same words you hear coming from your own conscious mind if you're new to creative visualization and affirmative thought.
Don't worry, these automatic counter-thoughts will only come up the first billion or so times you do it. Let them come up and just release the thought each time and move on to the next. With enough practice, the counter-thoughts subside and then you'll be a real magnet.
Here's the post. Note the comments in parentheses:
I remember that I am the one who attracts things to me by thinking about them, so for a few minutes here I am just going to think about how I'd feel if I got some extra unexpected money. (
I don't think that's going to happen. I don't think I believe in this stuff anyway.)
I go back to remembering every time a friend or I were excited over extra money or over winning money.
(I remember my brother's friend from the military, someone left him a lot of money in their will and he didn't even know them.)
I don't care where it comes from. (
How can I not care where it comes from? George owes me $200 but that's about it except for my job.
) It can come from places I have no idea about.
I'll leave that part up to the Universe. (
Easier said than done. Maybe I could mow lawns or have a garage sale...
) My part is getting excited seeing money in my account, and getting excited over seeing my name on a big check. (
Ok I'm trying to do that but my mind keeps asking me where will it come from?)
I see myself opening email and seeing dozens of Paypal notifications saying "You've got money!" I think, "I do, I do have money and I have more on the way." I think how good it feels to see the emails knowing they mean money in the bank.
(I could open a Paypal account for my friends to make donations and I could sell something on eBay maybe and use the Paypal account for that. They do say open a doorway for dollars to come in, so a Paypal account would be another doorway.)
Another day I can plan what I'd like to do with it. That's where resistance comes in for me anyway, since I too soon start justifying who and what I can help, and not where I'd go but who I'd travel with. ( Me, too. I think I should really take SoNso but she doesn't like to walk and I could take Whozit but she's going to complain the whole way anyway. I don't even know if I could take that long off work. Oh wait I wouldn't have to be at my job still, right, since it's MY visualization? Ok I see how it is easy to get hung up with this thought too. Jeez, this is hard work. )
Since I know that about myself, I make this 8 minute workshop only about feeling good and imagining receiving more dollars. And nothing else.
Like Abraham-Hicks says, get in, feel good, get out. Try it right now. Do it long enough and those unconscious thoughts will fade away. And so will your resistance.
Enjoy our offering this month.
