When Abundance Affirmations Don't Work...

Have you tried any of the popular New Thought practices about abundance only to have the same old problems and lack showing up repeatedly in your life?  Perhaps you've been told that you need to add "believing" or "faith" to thoughts of abundance in order to manifest them.  Have you tried this too, and again experienced little change in your circumstances? 

Why won't it work for you???

The reason why is that down deep in the darkest corners of your mind, you really don't believe you deserve abundance

We all have so much sub-conscious guilt built up from a life-time of what we believe to be our "sins".  (And, in fact, if you believe in reincarnation, just imagine how much guilt you might have from dozens and dozens of lifetimes of "sins".)  But beyond our belief that we are bad because of the "sins" we've committed, the whopper of all our guilt-producing acts is our original choice to separate from God. 

How do we reduce this monumental vat of guilt so that we can believe ourselves worthy of living happy lives?  How do we get back to God and live in peace and abundance?  We do it through our forgiveness, of course. 

Start to forgive the world around you and watch your life become rich.  A Course in Miracles calls this the "happy dream" life and it is something that each and every one of us is capable of achieving with a steady habit of forgiveness.  It doesn't happen over-night, but abundance will come to you, peace will come to you, love will come to you. 

When you learn to forgive the people and events that cause pain and anger in your life you will begin to forgive yourself. It's a universal law--you get what you give.  When you give forgiveness, you get forgiveness.   Months and years of forgiving others will ultimately lead to self-forgiveness.  And when you forgive yourself and release your guilt, you will begin to see that you really do deserve to live with all of God's gifts, including abundance.

It's a simple choice...do you want fear or love?  Fear creates lack and love creates abundance.  Which will you choose?
