So I intend for a financial safety net, and then my subconscious, believing we have the safety net, sends me out and about squandering money or tells me it's okay to take the day off, so that I don't meet my income goal. Then I don't see how I/M can even work at all without monkeywrenching stuff.
I have wondered this in the past and people find it hard to explain.
"To become financially abundant, you need to feel and act as though you're financially abundant."
"Okay. If I were financially abundant, I'd go out to the best restaurants twice a week and I'd buy a new car and I'd take a trip to Grand Cayman. Is that what you mean? 'Cause I only have like $100 and I don't know if I should go buy dinner for my partner and myself at that restaurant or what, especially 'cause the . . . electric bill . . . is overdue."
"Well . . . No . . . not exactly."
More or less!
I mean, honestly, can you find a full list of people loa has worked for? The only people i see it creating financial abundance for are those in the market of selling it as a magic wand.
Im not saying it cant work...only that your intentions need to be perfectly clear and unflawed. You have to cross all your t's and dot all your i's. And I dont think the subconscious actually works like you say..but i get your drift. It sabotages without a particular agenda in mind. Its simply the brewing pot of the compilation of your life thus far. The subconscious doesnt necessarily send you out on a spending spree...more that its the combination of many issues that affect that particular area of your life...kinda like the wax seal on the stuffed envelope.
Actually your last bit about acting as though you have a buck, reminds me of something i saw on tv a long time ago. It was dr phil or something and was targeting the 'bimbos' of the world and how they climbed up from rags to riches. It was all about their mind-set. I was intrigued by it and it made a whole lot of sense. Their way of explaining it was to believe one was rich and knocking with the rich crowd even while not having a penny to their name, to draw that scenario into their lives. So this dame took her credit card and maxed it out buying expensive gowns, hair-do's and all the trimmings. She went about deliberately finding loop-holes to get herself rubbing shoulders with and socialising with the rich and famous. Devious, I'd call it! LOL...but it worked. She believed in it totally and hatched the egg!
