How can Law of Attraction help when I need money NOW?
Question: It is very hard, almost impossible, to think positive when you need help almost immediately. Unless your advice is to let go and risk losing important things in your life? Pretty extreme detachment I would say, then you can start over and be positive with nothing to lose.
"I believe, but am frustrated time-wise - I can wait but not the bills."
Real Life LoA Answer: I'm so sorry to hear you are having a tough time, I know so many people who are in a rough spot financially right now, I'm sorry. I really hear you. Feeling pressure to pay the bills is a horrible feeling. And yes, it is impossible to think positive thoughts when things are crumbling around you - it is too far away from the reality you are experiencing.
However, the Law of Attraction, cannot, in and of itself, change what you are experiencing - it merely perpetuates what you notice, think about, and expect. Usually, that is more of the same, unfortunately.
And the answer is NOT to simply "let go" entirely and risk losing everything that is important to you either. But, being paralyzed by fears, no matter how justified they currently are, won't help to improve the situation.
One of the problems in the movie "The Secret" (and what many Law of Attraction teachers out there preach) is that they make it seem like all anybody has to do to manifest change is to think positively and then wait for the Law of Attraction to change the conditions being experienced. Sadly, it doesn't work that way.
Though it initially seems "unfair", usually, the more that somebody "needs" something, the much less likely they are to attract it. The reason is that when needs are very strong, it is far more easy to connect with the energy of NOT having what you want/need, than it is to really believe it is coming. Energy vibrations and alignment are very sensitive, if the fear is at all stronger than the belief, the manifestation will not turn out in the desired way, it will be the opposite.
When it comes to earning money, paying the bills and knowing that you need money now, because the pressure is so great, one should do whatever one can legally do to get that done first and foremost. Otherwise, the strain of having money worries hanging over your head makes it virtually impossible to attract anything else. The Law of Attraction only responds to whatever emotional state is most prevalent (and, concern about the lack of money is a VERY strong emotional state!)
One other thing that can help some is to use techniques specifically to get in and change the beliefs that trigger the fears that take over and seize your thoughts. The ones I use myself are "The Work of Byron Katie" (www.thework.com) and "The Lefkoe Method" (www.recreateyourlife.com/free/). With both techniques, you can do a great deal of it for free yourself, but it takes practice, and it's not easy. Then again, most things that are really valuable are rarely easy.
I wish you the best, and am sending you blessings of light and light along the way!
P.S. From my own personal experience right now, I can also recommend doing the steps outlined on this other page, while you are pursuing immediate ways to earn money and pay the bills: Andrea's variation on the Abraham-Hicks 30-day Challenge for a complete Law of Attraction overhaul
I wish there was a secret formula. Many have promised one, but the only way I know of to come into TRUE alignment with the Law of Attraction is through fine-tuning and practice.
