I think everybody has heard of the law of attraction, because everywhere I go people are asking me to talk to them about manifestation, and in particular, the manifestation of greater wealth.
But the problem with manifesting money is that people need to explore exactly what their relationship to money is before they can hope to be successful in getting more of it.
Make money manifest!
You see, what we don’t understand generally is that money is really some kind of energy – it has a life of its own, which manifest in two ways: it can either be a gift, by which we can fulfill our greatest dreams, or it can be a curse, damning the unwise and the unworldly to a life in which they pursue happiness through material gain – and generally fail to achieve it.
And this means that money is much more than some simple means of exchange – it seems to have a life of its own, and it can lead us off our path, from the spiritual to the material, or it can lead us from the material to the spiritual, when it’s used in accordance with somebody’s deepest values.
But manifesting money is by far and away the greatest, that is to say the most common, objective that people have when they’re trying to manifest reality.
And for that reason it behoves each and everyone of us to examine very carefully our unhealthy and unconscious relationships with money – the ones which could cause problems if we try and get more of it.
The Law Of Attraction Never Fails Those Who Wish To Manifest
Deborah L Price, Author of Money Magic – Unleashing Your True Potential for Prosperity and Fulfillment, has written of how we need to explore the unconscious relationships that we have with money by watching how they manifest in our life.
And we can do that, she says, by looking at money types. This might help your understanding of archetypes; and if you already know about them, you’ll know where she’s coming from when she says that our unconscious relationships with money manifest as many archetypes – or, archetypal patterns, which are made up of the unconscious habits and beliefs which we act out in everyday life.
Indeed, coming to terms with these money archetypes, and working out how they impact you, is definitely going to be one of the biggest steps forward that you can take in making your ability to manifest anything successfully blossom!
This is because you’re examining your deepest and darkest beliefs around money – whether they concern the qualities that money has – or whether they concern the qualities that you have. For example, you might think the money is the root of all evil (where did you hear that old chestnut first time round?) or you might believe that you are not worth a big salary (where did you learn that?)
One of the most interesting things that she has to say about the archetypal influences on money is the impact of the “magician” on the flow of money in an individual’s life…..
The Money Magician and Law of Attraction
When we talk about our archetypes, one of the most commonly referred to is the magician archetype – because the magician represents the gateway to fear, and fear is one of the most common human emotions. It takes a powerful persona to overcome the power of the magician when he (or she) is manifesting what they want.
Every time you experience fear, your magician, your internal magician, that part of your brain which is concerned with finding solutions to problems and avoiding difficulty, and keeping you out of risk, switches on.
Of course every part of the human being has an urge to grow and develop, and the magician is no less interested in that than any other part of you. But his or her job is to keep you safe, and that will generally be the way he or she behaves until given a different job, or until you examine the beliefs which are running inside the magician within you.
So you can see, perhaps, that transformation is one of the qualities of the magician, and of course magicians generally want transformation for themselves: to live in a state of grace and gratitude.
As Deborah says, they are the leaders of the way and the followers of the light – they know The Source within and they have access to the infinite power that it offers.
As I read what she says about the “magician within” I begin to understand that Deborah may have a slightly different view of the magician to the one I have: she speaks of the magician’s ability to know that any feeling of constriction around money will block its creative flow – and therefore the magician strives to maintain a high level of consciousness, and “actively seeks to understand and remove any fear obstacle in their path”.
So how is the magician to actually achieve a full and open relationship with money – a conscious relationship which will allow person to manifest money easily and abundantly?
Well, first of all it appears that the path to becoming a money magician is not a straightforward or simple one – it consists of many steps.
To start with you must understand how you play the money game currently, and know the places where you get caught up in the beliefs which cause you to feel poorer or to attract poverty consciousness.
And to do this, you have to take a very close examination of your personal history, and indeed, of your cultural background. I discovered when I examined my ancestral history around money that we regarded ourselves – at least this was the story which came down through the family to me – as part of the “virtuous poor”.
I don’t know how being poor can be a state of grace, or indeed virtue, but what I think this meant for our family was that they’d always done menial manual laboring jobs, and to justify their poverty consciousness to themselves, they regarded the history of having “built the world” as the way they became virtuous.
This just strikes me as poverty and suffering combined into a mill of unpleasantness and deprivation.
But of course people seek to justify these things to themselves, so in my history I grew up with the idea of “the virtuous poor.” Well, I can tell you I have completely and utterly rejected this history and replaced it with an abundance consciousness in which I am with a worthy creator of my own well-deserved worthwhile abundance.
So as you become more conscious of the history and thoughts that you hold about money, you will gradually come to understand the language you use about money better, and you’ll come to understand the actions you take in relationship to it much more clearly as well. And of course when you do this you have the option of choosing a different way of being in relation to money.
Of course you may need to work effectively on removing any fear, doubt, or low self-worth around control of money or flow of money from your conscious mind before you can reimprint the unconscious with a desire and expectancy around abundance!
