How to Get Paid Using Law of Attraction
Someone owes you money or is slow to pay? While it’s easy to blame the other for the situation, that energy isn’t likely to help you get the money you’re due. Use the Law of Attraction to let the payday in.
First of all, it couldn’t have happened if you weren’t aligned to it. You played a role in this co-creation. That doesn’t make you bad or wrong, it just is what it is.
Don’t use it as a reason to feel bad, but rather as a way to lift resentment that might be present toward the debtor. After all, they’re the ones that got sucked into your “I didn’t get paid” or “I got shafted” vibe. (Maybe they deserve some sympathy too, huh?)
How to remedy the circumstances so the money’s flowing in? Simple: shift the energy. Specifically, shift YOUR energy. You’ve got to change how you feel before you can get what you want.
There are a variety of ways we feel when someone’s not giving us what we think we earned: upset, angry, resentful, fearful, victimized, resigned, ungrateful, etc. And we know what that energy attracts, right? More reason to feel that way. So that doesn’t work.
We’ve all been down that road to know it.
Before someone can pay us, we have to feel a way that’s aligned to that result. Which could be a variety of feelings – different for each of us. For me personally, getting paid what someone owes feels like relief. Relief of those bad feelings I was trying not to flow while they owed me money!
The work is to feel this way BEFORE they pay you. I know it can be tricky, but think of it as good deliberate creation practice. They’re giving you an opportunity to flex your manifesting muscle! It helps to find new thoughts that allow for new feelings. Get creative in finding which ones work for you.
While I’m noticing someone still owes me money, and growing more irritated with every week that passes without payment, or even word from them that they intend to pay, I’m flowing energy that keeps that payday in the future. In this way I’m responsible for the delayed payment.
To bring that payday to the present, I have to feel NOW how I would feel then. So I can practice feelings of relief; that “FINALLY!” feeling. I imagine the feeling of a clean slate again. Maybe running “It’s about TIME!” through my head or “Thank GOD” I can give this up now.
As I give this up NOW, I open the door to getting paid.
Also, as you flow this newly aligned vibration, check in on whether it feels good to take any particular action. Like sending a reminder invoice, making a call, or asking them to sign a promissory note.
If you take any action, make sure it feels good and do it with the feel good “I just got paid” or at least “I’m on way to being paid” energy – not the “pissed off I’m still not paid” energy. It makes all the difference in the world!
It also helps to release your attachment to receiving the money. If you find your way to knowing you’ll be fine either way, that helps let the money in too. Easier said than done, I know, but it works if you can get there. (You have to really mean it for it to work, not just saying the words. The Universe knows the difference.)
I’ve had luck in the past with this forgiveness exercise that Connie Domino’s “Develop Irresistible Attraction” offered from Catherine Ponder:
“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.” – Catherine PonderHolding the person you wish to forgive in your mind, state your affirmation of forgiveness something like this:
“I forgive you completely and freely, I loose you and let you go. So, as far as I’m concerned, the incident that happened between us is finished forever. I wish the best for you, I wish for you your highest good, and I hold you in the light. I am free and you are free, and all again is well between us. Peace be with you.”
You might have to read it a time or two before you feel a shift, but stick with it. That shift is what releases your attachment to getting paid, which is very likely exactly what allows you to let the money in.
I myself am having a hard time on releasing attachment to a particularly large sum that I’m owed (not by a client), so I know getting to forgiveness is easier said than done.
And if it doesn’t feel good to go there, don’t! We know how this works … find your feel good wherever it is, and that’s what’ll let the money in.
Here’s to a happy payday for us all!
