Shayne on You: Trust that the universe will provide

Dear Maggie,

I donít have enough money, and I donít see any way I can make any more. Iím working as many hours as I can, so thereís no way to get another job. Iíve begged for a raise, to no avail. I donít see any way to spend less, either. Iíve cut back in every area I can think of. Thereís no more fat to trim. And yet my basic living expenses are more than my paycheck, and I fall more deeply into debt with each passing month. I donít know what to do. And I honestly donít think thereís anything you can think of either, but at this point, Iíll try almost anything.

Thank you,



Hopeless

Dear Hopeless,

I donít know how to make the sun rise tomorrow. Iíve tried pushing the planet around with my bare hands, but itís more than one human being can do. Itís more than all of us could do. And yet, somehow, it will rise.

When youíre out of options, and see utterly no way out, youíre in the perfect place, because thatís the only time some of us are able to let go of the notion that itís up to us to work it all out. We donít need to figure out the details. We need to let go of the notion that x-number of hours equals x-number of dollars, and that thereís no way to change that. That mindset limits us, because what we believe is exactly what we experience. And yet some people earn billions. So whatís the difference between them and us? They expect more, they believe theyíre capable of more. They donít limit themselves. Theyíre hopeful, rather than hopeless.

So, try an experiment. Begin trusting that the Universe has the means to provide whatever you need. Notice how it provides plenty for the birds and the wildlife around you, and how they are intuitively able to find whatever they need. Trust it to do the same for you.

And since you canít do much else, start working on improving the way you feel, and do so gradually, one step at a time. Shift your focus to the things that are going right, change all your negative statements to positive ones, start doing the things that cost nothing and yet make you feel a little bit better, and then a little better and then a little better. Reach for a feeling of relief. Tiny improvements will happen, and when you see them, let them be the proof to you that your efforts are working. And let that make you feel even better, and then youíll see even more. Stop noticing lack, so much, and start noticing all you do have.

Before you know it, youíll be experiencing hopefulness, followed by greater wealth. It will happen. It cannot fail.

And enjoy the process. Itís the most powerful discovery youíll ever make.

Maggie
