This is a difficult time because the economic future of the world is a little bit doubtful. We believe that it will get better, but who can predict when?We are going to tell you that the Congressional Budget Office, which is a neutral think tank and not beholden to either liberals or conservatives, says that the economy will be recovered by 2013. And, for the sake of argument, let’s say that between now and then it will move toward recovery. All economists say that first business will recover, and then jobs will be increased.Let’s take that as our belief, because we’ve already talked about beliefs and how they affect your ability to attract good things into your life. The economy is already recovering.When You Spend Money, How do You FEEL? If you feel nervous or uncomfortable or doubtful when you spend money, you will slow down your ability to attract money, and you will attract more of what you feel. So don’t do it if it will make you feel fearful!This is reinforcing the idea that there is a money shortage or that money is limited. Money is an energy commodity, or simply vibrational energy, and thus there can never be a shortage unless you bring that shortage into life by having that as a belief.If you feel marvelous, glorious and joyful when you spend money, then do it. All we recommend these days, for the next couple of years, is that you spend either money you actually have in your hand (not credit!) or money you have been saving in escrow.The Hicks explain that you do not have to guard money any more than you have to guard the breath that you have just taken in. As easily as you take it in, you can let it out. There is always more to flow.This is true of money. It can easily flow in, and just as easily you can let it out because as long as you have belief in it and enjoy it, there will be another inflow.The Flow Only Stops When You Stop Allowing the Flow:You cannot focus on a shortage and attract an abundance. This is stopping the flow. You will attract what you focus on. So, do yourself a favor and focus on flow.Does this seem unrealistic to you? Well, tell us about the economic reality when Thomas Edison invented the electric light bulb, or when Steve Jobs released the first Apple computer? What was the reality when Henry Ford’s engineers finally perfected the 6 cylinder engine which could be mass produced, or when Larry Page and Sergey Brin brought Google to life in 1998. What was the climate when Rush Limbaugh signed his $400 million contract?There is always money when there is something that attracts the attention of a large number of people. Google isn’t even a product that needs to be manufactured. It is a service. And, it is a free service. How did they get to be so rich? And Rush? He doesn’t even have to tell the truth.Money is energy. It is not dependent on your previous reality. It is dependent on how well you fall into the flow and allow it to come to you.As they say in the movie The Secret: “Only good things come to me… Just take the first step.” What is Money in Escrow?When we are attracting money/wealth/abundance, yet it is not flowing into our lives, we are placing it in escrow until we are vibrationally matched to our desires.This is where your feelings or vibrations, and your beliefs are of key importance. You can’t, or won’t, take that first step until you believe that there will be another step on which to catch your balance, and another, and another.So, we go back to the first question. How do you feel when you spend money? If you are hesitant, then money will come to you but you are hesitant to allow it into your life. You need to change this before money will flow.Some people spend their money in escrow first. Oh, what is this? Is this real?Yes, and no. It is real if you believe that it is. You can keep an escrow account ledger, and each day, spend $100 – in escrow. Mentally, spend the money and feel the enjoyment of it. As you picture yourself enjoying it, your unconscious does not know whether this was real money or escrow money. As you spend and enjoy it, your unconscious will send a message to your higher power to bring more to you.You will enter the flow and the money in escrow will begin to materialize in your real life.So spend it, and enjoy it!
