Relax Into Wealth
Jafree Ozwald and Margot Zaher
Would you like to receive more wealth from the Universe? Would you like to be free from stressful financial issues forever? The secret to becoming Financially Receptive is to embrace a state of relaxation instead of stress about your current financial state. That’s right! The more you relax into and surrender your attempt to control your current stressful relationship with money, the more your energy field expands and opens, naturally attracting more prosperity into your life.
“When you are grateful,
and abundance appears.”
~ Anthony Robbins
The energy of relaxation carries a high vibration that instantly shifts you into a receptive state and consequently allows the Universe to fill your request for abundance. On the other hand, when you are stressed, you automatically shut down your manifesting channels, repelling that which you want to manifest. Vibrationally speaking, what you want to attract literally cannot get into your field because the energy of stress blocks it. So relax…really relax…. going infinitely deeper and deeper into the relaxation. Allow the feeling of any financial burden to be lifted from your life forever.
“The greatest revolution of our generation
is the discovery that human beings,
by changing the inner attitudes of their minds,
can change the outer aspects of their lives.”
The good news is that it is easy to relax and it feels soooo good to do so! Relaxation is your natural state, and therefore you can effortlessly tap into the part of you that is always relaxed and knows that you are divinely supported. Deep relaxation is something we ALL look forward to, yet how frequently do you give this gift to yourself? Can you simply decide to let yourself relax more than you ever have before this month? When you allow time to relax, you open up your field to receiving more abundance from the Universe.
And remind yourself that this very moment
is the only one you know you have for sure.”
Simply let yourself decide when you are going to relax this week. Claim your space! Before you relax it’s always good to recite an all-powerful affirmation: “The more calm I am, the more open I will be to financial opportunity!”
Here are three powerful techniques to help you relax about your current finances, and thus receive more abundance from the Universe:
1. Relax your Body and Mind through Conscious Breathing
Whenever you notice you are worrying about money, stop what you are doing and begin to do deep breathing. The very act of breathing takes you deeper into your body. Breathing anchors you into your physical form, which is abiding in the God-Source that is always here now. This Source is the most loving, abundant state you’ll ever find. So take a moment right now and take 3 deep breaths. With each breath, breathe in relaxation, and with each out-breath, release any stress or tension you have. Do you notice a feeling of deeper peace in your body yet? Breathe deeper and include all of the thoughts and emotions that you’re stressed about. Breathe in relaxation, breathe out stress until you can feel the peace. Then, let in this glorious peace because you deserve it!! This will center you, and automatically re-open your energy field to receive the abundance that is wanting you.
2. Experience Gratitude for the Abundance You Do Have
One of the most powerful ways to open up your ability to receive more abundance is to relax into the energy of gratitude. The act of feeling grateful for the wealth that you DO have instantly shifts the energy in every cell of your body, as well as those electrons in your bank account! As you flood your body-mind with gratitude, you start to feel complete and whole on the deepest levels. When you are thankful, you know that your “cup runneth over”, and are no longer in the habit of desperately searching for ways to fill it up. The old world unconscious search for something to fill you up is what creates the lack in your bank account. This yearning, needing, and searching feeling creates stress in your body which blocks the abundance you are here to receive. Connecting with deep feelings of gratitude means everything is already perfect exactly as it is, and that manifesting more wealth is not the most important thing in life. This concept frees you from the pursuit of money, and on one level instantly makes you financially free! So every time you start to strive for more abundance in your life, stop… and be grateful for what you already have. You’ll see how effortless it is to receiving more financial prosperity down the road.
3. Daily Visualize Receiving The Prosperity You Desire
Visualization supports your entire mind-body in relaxing, and thus receiving more abundance because it creates a blue-print for success in your subconscious mind. When you create a mental movie of what the abundance you want looks and feels like, your subconscious believes that this mental movie is your current reality. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination. When you imagine biting into a spicy taco, you start to salivate right? Your mind believes and knows that you are ALREADY abundant right now, your whole body goes “Ahhhhhhhh” and simultaneously starts magnetizing what you want in your life. The key to a highly effective visualization is to connect strong feeling states to the pictures that you create in your mind. So take a moment right now and see yourself manifesting what you do desire. Feel it in your body and keep turning up the volume on the strong abundant and positive feelings this imagery creates.
“Abundance is not something we acquire.
It is something we tune into.”
~ Wayne Dyer
