I'm loving Jeanette's post on the new money math in regards to LOA. You can read it here:
Manifesting money is usually one of the first things people want to do when they discover LOA. They want to win a lottery or sell a book or get a raise or hit a jackpot at the casino. And yes, it is possible to manifest money, in both large and small amounts. And thanks to this post, when I paid bills the other day I stated this:
Thank you that money that I put into circulation is returned to me tenfold.
And I wrote that on my white board as well.
When I read Think and Grow Rich, my one true purpose that I wrote was to make a living with writing and earn $100,000 by 2016. I believe that I'm on the way to that figure and I believe that it is going to happen (sold my first short story a month ago). Reading other books, such as Connie Domino's Law of Attraction, has said to state a number and a deadline, which is what I did when reading Think and Grow Rich. Even in The Secret Jack Canfield (of Chicken Soup fame) talked about how he earned his first $100,000 using LOA techniques.
But now that I've seen LOA work in so many ways, I'm wondering if I'm limiting myself. Granted, $100,000 is a lot of money to me. But if I can manifest $200 to pay the bills or even $20 for gas in the car, am I limiting myself to $100,000? Why not $1 million? Why have a number at all? Do I need a number? I know God doesn't need a number. I think the number is more for me, more for my logical brain to be able to comprehend.
In reality, what I want is to live a comfortable life on a solely creative income. I want to be able to spend my days as I please, being creative, whether it's through writing or crafts or some other creative endeavor. But writing is my first love. It's what I've always wanted to do. So that is what I see as my main income and the other stuff will be just icing on my cake. The ability to live a beautiful, creative, enjoyable, abundant life is my true desire. So if that is my desire, then should I limit myself to $100,000 a year? Should I continue with that goal and then when it's reached just let the actual figure go?
I'm thinking I need to let go of an amount and let it happen. What do ya'll think? Is an amount needed for LOA? Or is an amount for us, for our brains to comprehend, and it's not needed at all?
