Your thoughts and your words are powerful. I’m going to share with you today the top three things that you probably say that are keeping you stuck living paycheck to paycheck.

You may have heard my story about how my husband and I were creating a very debt-filled life. By 1995, we had over $50,000 in credit card debt which was equivalent to over probably $120,000 today. And we were stuck in this pattern of creating more debt. We had next to no income coming in, and pretty much every dollar we spent was an additional dollar of debt.

And that’s when it’s like the universe slapped me in the face and said, “Wake up, Carol. Wake up. You’re creating this. Come on. You have to learn.” I was in the early days becoming a student of the law of attraction and how I was a creator. I was showing myself all kinds of accidental and “miscreations”, I would call them. They weren’t things I wanted. I was creating a lot of what I don’t want. And we didn’t have the luxury of living paycheck to paycheck. We had no paycheck. We were just creating debt. And I am grateful for that experience. As I look back, it was very uncomfortable. It created a lot of discontent and discord in our relationship. A lot of blaming. A lot of unease when you’re in that space where money is so prolifically an upset. It sets you up to now be unsettled every day of your life. You’re just facing it on a daily basis. It’s like, “I can’t be happy until this is over, until we’ve resolved this.”

And I do talk about creation, the law of attraction, budget planner and money (including my budget planner) here along on the YouTube Heal with Carol channel, and I invite you to watch those other videos. I’m a master at creating money. I figured it out. I’ve spent the last, since 1995, so going on close to 25 years, teaching people how to shift their energy when it comes to money so they can create affluence with money rather than lack of money. So I’m very aware of the things we think and say that create…what do you think they are? I’ll give you a moment here. Even one of them. What do you think one of the three is that you say?

One of them you probably say or think on a daily basis. And I want you to think in the most recent past, the last week or two, was there a day that you did not have an inner experience, a thought or feeling, with money. Did you live an entire day without some psychological and emotional response to money? You know, favorably or unfavorably was there a day you didn’t even consider money? It might be on the weekends but maybe Sunday, you know? It’s rare. I’m really stressing a point here to say you want to get this thing cleaned up. You want to undo your money struggle. You want to be free of it. You want to create affluence with money, because it’s a daily experience now. It’s not going away. It is a part of our lifestyle that you get to decide what you want to create.

Money is a neutral energy. I teach you a lot about money in my most recent book, “Mastering Affluence”. In fact, I have an entire section titled “How to Create Financial Affluence”. The book’s written in six lessons. Lesson 5 is “How to Create Financial Affluence”. I have you do certain practices for an entire week. It will change your life, so grab a copy of the book if you’re ready to be free of your money struggles. I am and it’s an amazing way to love. Money shows up for me. It’s easy to create money. It’s one of the easiest things to create once you get in the rhythm with it.

The Top Three Things You Say That Keep You Stuck Living Paycheck To Paycheck.

1. “I Can’t Afford It”

How recently have you thought or spoken that? Did you say it to your kids, spouse, yourself? Is it accurate? Number one, really? Yeah, if you’re looking at, you know, a yacht, a luxury high-end home, maybe it’s accurate. But, for a lot of things you do say that in reference to, it’s not even an accurate statement. You probably can afford it but it’s a way to stop yourself from spending. So it has this interesting…the reasoning behind it often is, “Suspend the spending. I don’t want to spend so I’m going to tell myself I can’t afford it.” It’s become a habit now.

But what happens when you say that, and let’s just say you do desire something that it’s not in your budget. The money is not there. Maybe you want to remodel a space in your home. Maybe you want to redo your yard. Maybe you really like a different car or automobile. And, it’s a bigger expense and you can obviously say, “Well, the funds aren’t there so I can’t afford it.” Interestingly people will respond to situations in life that they would desire. Something shows that you’re presented with something maybe someone else has experienced. “I can’t afford it.” You go into an energetic slump. So, what you want to say instead, I’ll give you that in a moment but let me tell you the other two.

So, it’s not working. You send a message out to the universe and you empower this powerful creation system called the universe. The universe is a system of expansion. We’re feeding it instructions every day of our lives. So, you’re telling it, “I can’t afford stuff so keep setting me up living paycheck to paycheck. Keep me on this pattern because I have a belief I can’t afford it,” and that’s what the instructions are to this creation machine called the universe.

2. “I Have To Work Harder”

I have to work harder and then more money will show up.” So that’s a flawed concept as well, because consider the wealthiest people in the world. We have billionaires now in the 100s. That’s kind of a phenomena of our time that didn’t exist decades ago. Millionaires was the status quo for the highest level of wealth. Now billionaires is the status. They’re not putting in more hours because the hours don’t exist to create the accumulation of money they have. It’s not a physical labor application. They just are really good at creating…their ideas create more money than their physical output.

So, your physical output does not need to be attached to more money showing up. I’ll give you a statement to correct that one. So, just notice when you think that you’re attaching your physical, it’s kind of like, “If I do something more, money will show up,” well, you’re never create an accumulation of money that puts you in a wealth status with that setup.

3. “I’ll Never Have Enough Money”

That’s kind of connected to the I can’t. That’s the second thought after, “I can’t afford it. I’ll never have enough money.” They probably go on this order, “I can’t afford it. I’ll never have enough money. I have to work harder.” That would probably be the sequence of thinking. And, you’re going to expand the never. See, if every thought you think, word you speak is an instruction to the creation machine called the universe that supports us in creating more of what we’re telling it to create, and you’re mis-creating, you’re not creating true to your sole nature by doing this, you’re telling it, “Keep me in a status of never having the money so I need to keep living paycheck to paycheck.” And that’ll be the case.

So, what do you say instead? First one, “I can afford to believe in it. I can afford to believe in what is desirable to me. I can afford to believe in it.” The second one, we’re switching the, “I have to work harder.” It has something to do with physical output. Sure, there’ll be some of that. There’s always an action tied to a belief but you first have to change the belief. So, rather than say, “I have to work hard,” say, “I have to believe I can have more money. I have to believe I can have more money.” And the third one, “I’ll never have enough money.” Switch it to, “Money is an ample supply and it flows to me easily. Money is an ample supply and it flows to me easily.”

So, catch yourself thinking any one of those three and switch it to the other thought and change your vibration. It gives a new instruction to create something different, and you’ll be amazed at what shows up.
