The Law of Increase is essentially about expressing your gratitude for what you have. When you do this you are in resonance with the things you appreciate and desire in your life and so you receive more of the same.
The problem is too many people are complaining about what they do not have in life. When you do this you resonate with what you lack and you get more of the same. The Law of Increase works every time.
One of the complaints about the hit movie “The Secret” was that it only focused on money and material things. The interesting thing is that this is not the case. “The Secret” also dealt with other key aspects of our lives such as health and relationships.
However, many people want more money and so when they watched the movie that is what their attention was drawn to. Then when they were unable to manifest the money they desired the movie became like sour grapes and they rejected the underlying message of the movie.
However, you cannot escape the fact that to live life of a high standard you need to have money – lots of it.
I recently read about a businessman who has titanium business cards. You may be asking: “Why would anyone make business cards from titanium? Isn’t that expensive?” Yes, it sure is but he can afford it.
Isn’t it great to be so rich you can splurge on something like business cards and really create a lasting impression? You may also be thinking, “What a waste of money!” But surely this man has earned the right to spend the money as he pleases. It may be somewhat ostentatious but it isn’t immoral or unethical.
What if your thoughts ran more along these lines?
“Titanium business cards? What a novel idea! When I have lots of money I’m going to spend it on…”
You would be in a totally different state emotionally than if you resented this business man. You would be excited about the prospect of having more money and the good things you’d be able to do with it.
You see many people would love to have more money in their lives but their resentment literally disconnects them from what they desire. If you feel resentment against people who are rich try feeling happy for them instead.
Think about it. Their achievements demonstrate that it is possible for an individual to become rich. In many cases, these individuals have very humble origins. Some grew up in abject poverty. So if they can become rich against such odds so can you. Celebrate their achievements so that you may celebrate your own.
Sadly, many people often struggle to find anything to be grateful for but the mere fact that you are alive is both a miracle and a blessing. There are numerous things you can express your gratitude each and everyday.
Remember the Charles Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol” – the story of old Ebenezer Scrooge. He had money but he was not wealthy. He led a miserable miserly existence until the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future showed him where he had come from, what he had become and what he had to look forward to.
After that revelation it wasn’t just that he became more generous. He was more grateful for life itself and he expressed his new-found joy and gratitude for his life through his generosity. And the Law of Increase duly rewarded. After all those years of hoarding his money, the more Ebenezer Scrooge gave the more his business flourished and the more joy he experienced with those close to him.
Instead of being just rich he became wealthy too.
“Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach, author of “Simple Abundance”
