Affirming Money

Written by Skye Thomas

Continued from page 1

Our belief systems around money definitely matter. What we think about ourselves and money is more powerful than many people realize. Most kids raised in wealthy families are not only taught how to make money, but also there's an underlying belief that they'll naturally carry onrepparttar family tradition. Most kids raised in poverty are taught nothing whatsoever about how to amass wealth and are conditioned to believe that they'll never be rich anyway. Those arerepparttar 122295 extremes. Most of us are somewhere inrepparttar 122296 middle and so is our perceived earning potential.

Take some time and seriously dig through your thoughts about money. What were you taught? What was role modeled to you? Facing your self-limiting thoughts will help you to stop letting them run your life. You will have to work overtime guarding your every thought as you proceed downrepparttar 122297 trail towards a life of abundance. A big piece of that will involve stating affirmations. It is a method of changingrepparttar 122298 computer program running in your brain. Let's say that your original software was designed to believe that there isn't enough wealth to go around and therefore it's going to be next to impossible for you to get your hands on any of it. You want to upgrade to a newer program that helps you to manifest more money in your life. Unfortunately,repparttar 122299 human brain doesn't allow a program to be erased once it's put in place. So, you're going to have to put an overriding program overtop ofrepparttar 122300 original flawed program. Every timerepparttar 122301 old program starts babbling about scarcity andrepparttar 122302 lack of money to be found, you have to immediately tell your brain to stop and playrepparttar 122303 new program that believes that there is more than enough to go around. You do that by telling yourself positive affirmations. Force your mind to really see tangible proof that there is enough money inrepparttar 122304 world for you to liverepparttar 122305 life that you dream of.

Affirmations are amazing and powerful, but all by themselves, they aren't going to do you a bit of good. Very few self-made millionaires did it be sitting inrepparttar 122306 lotus position stating torepparttar 122307 cosmos that their bank account was magically growing all by itself. You still have to get up and do something. Sell something. Give away a service. Teach something. Make people feel something. Build something. Yes, you ought to pick something that you love doing because it'll be easier to become really good at it. Nobody wants to be an expert in a topic that bores them to death. It's kind of like that story ofrepparttar 122308 little engine trying to drag itself up overrepparttar 122309 hill, "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." Atrepparttar 122310 same time, he was working harder then he ever had in his entire life. Do that.

Marty, the Angel Repairman

Written by Suzanne Solle

Continued from page 1

She was in her early twenties atrepparttar time of her death. She and Marty were very close and always had been. He loved to grow roses in his backyard. He called them his babies. After he got home from work duringrepparttar 122294 warmer months, he would go out to tend his roses. His daughter would often join him inrepparttar 122295 garden. Marty would always cut one perfect rose and wordlessly hand it to her. It was his way of telling her how much he valued her and how beautiful she was to him.

Just a few days after her death, Marty had a dream or vision of his daughter telling him that she was at peace and he should move forward with his life. This dream gave him a sense of calm and peace he said. Unfortunately, his wife felt no such peace. She was despondent and could see no point to anything in life. Marty tried to help his wife by telling her about his dream, but she seemed to be out of his reach.

A few months later, Marty and his wife were driving around in downtown Independence. He was trying to get her to decide where to go for lunch, but she was unresponsive. Marty's anger from allrepparttar 122296 pressure building overrepparttar 122297 last few months of his wife shutting everyone and everything out threatened to explode. He took a deep breath and said he was going to drive aroundrepparttar 122298 square until she made a decision about where they were going.

He drove around and around, receiving no response from his wife. When he had tired of driving, he stoppedrepparttar 122299 car, and turned to her to try to reason with her one more time. When he turned to look at her, he saw they were in front of a store calledrepparttar 122300 Angel Lady. He previously didn't even know this store existed. He told his wife they needed to go intorepparttar 122301 store. He couldn't explain why, he just knew they needed to go inside.

As they enteredrepparttar 122302 store, Marty said he immediately felt a sense of peace wash over him. The store is in an old house and consists of several small rooms filled with angel paintings, figurines, books, music -- anything you can imagine with an angel theme. As they enteredrepparttar 122303 second room, Marty looked up and saw a painting of an angel holding a rose. The angel's face looked just like his daughter's. He showed it to his wife and said he must buy it. Forrepparttar 122304 first time since their daughter's death, Marty's wife seemed to be alive. She agreed that they must haverepparttar 122305 painting for their home.

This experience wasrepparttar 122306 turning point for Marty's wife accepting and moving beyond their daughter's death. He said that wasrepparttar 122307 reason he carried cards fromrepparttar 122308 Angel Lady with him wherever he went. He felt there were always people that needed to experiencerepparttar 122309 healing that he and his wife had and he wanted to help them find it.

It was time for Marty to go to his next service call. He had more appliances to repair, more souls to heal.
