Several months ago, I said one of the most powerful affirmations I’ve ever said in my life. When I look back on it, I still can’t believe it really happened. You can read the story I wrote about that here. The affirmation I said was: “I make X dollars per week.”
Long(ish) story short: I got exactly what I asked for. I more than doubled my income–the same month I said the affirmation, then every month since.
Okay, so is it time to upgrade? I wondered after writing that post. Well, why not give it a try?
And so, only a month or so after saying that first affirmation, I did what I said that I was going to do and said the affirmation again–only this time, there was a difference: I changed the amount of “X” to an amount that was a little over twice the original amount.
Why did I choose that amount? No real reason. It just felt right. It was a round number. It was a very nice number. I liked it.
Now, let’s get one thing on the record: I did not believe that I would make this amount. It’s an amount that I have never earned before, and with a baby on the way, I didn’t see myself earning that much money for a decent amount of time. I do have faith–but I don’t expect anything to happen that’s not meant to happen, and I simply didn’t know if this was what the Universe wanted for me.
Well, as it turned out, it did.
The month after saying that affirmation, I tallied up my freelance writing earnings and was shocked to find that even though I’d been out of town for two weeks that month, I had earned my new goal amount each week, minus just five percent.
And since then? Well, it’s been one more month now, and so far, I’ve earned the total goal amount plus 30 percent every single week. And that amount holds even if I don’t get any additional projects or book sales this month; as long as my clients pay what they owe (which they always do), I will still will earn the total monthly goal amount plus 30 percent.
I really don’t know where to go from here … But I will keep you updated on whether or not this trend continues.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
