Moonrambler, I think you are making it very clear that LOA works. Which is a good and reassuring thing. You know what you have been feeling and acting and what exactly got manifested. Why keep on the same way? Unless you want to continue your current state of being for whatever reason, or if you expect different outcomes from the same way of thinking and feeling and doing. Throw them all away. If you've been manifesting what you don't want, then you know you have to do the opposite to get what you want. And by "do" I mean "feel". Not fake feelings, but real feelings of what you wish to be at. When you fake, your awareness is still on your perceived reality. For a change, throw caution to the wind. Trust in abandonment and enjoy every moment you could, feeling you are exactly where you wish to be at. Put your awareness on your desired scenario and feelings, not the pending wolves and disasters your create in your mind. If you got the same result, at least you feel good and have fun meanwhile. What've you got to lose?
BTW, I don't get that people think to feel and act rich means to be a reckless spendthrift. Do you think that's how really wealthy people behave? Some appear to behave so but the truth is not what it appears. Some of them don't really have the wealth mindset and they lose it all. Some put on the public display as part of the image and "job requirement" so such spending is an investment. Also they are often sponsored and not spending their own money. Wealthy people know how to manage wealth and get good values for their money, be it material or psychological. No matter your wealth level, you have to relax, give, and enjoy the money. Living beyond your means, disrepecting money, or being attached to it will diminish your wealth.
