I need some powerful money mojo, if you can spare some.
Mojo, I mean. I read the lounge post by RadFemFL, and there is also one in GD regarding Straight Story, so I know I am not the only one having financial problems right now. I don't mean to pile on, but I also know that getting help in the mojo department from others can be very helpful.

Anyway, some of you know that over the past few months, things have been rather bumpy for me, losing my job (but I did get another one fairly quickly). Prior to losing the job, my income had been decreasing steadily because I wasn't getting enough work. My income is increasing now, but in the wake of the declining income/job loss period, I got behind on my personal bills (and a little on household bills, but did pay them first). Anyway, most of my creditors are being very understanding and are working with me, but last Saturday, my car was repossessed. That has never happened to me before. I have to pay over $1800 to the company holding the car note to get it back, and I have to do it before 12/15, or the car will be auctioned off. Since I only owe a total of $3500 on the note, I don't want to lose it at this stage. Plus, while I work from home, I still have to have a car for appointments and such.

I'm trying to figure out what to do. I think I will call my family to see if they can help me out, but if anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it. I cannot do a formal loan, as my credit rating is in the tank at the moment.

I have been visualizing having my car back, and was able to watch The Secret, as well as listening to an audio MP3 about manifesting and such. I'm not feeling panicky or anything, but time is short.

Anyway, as I said, I know there are other people hurting right now, and others who are in a worse situation than I am, and I am sending them good thoughts and money mojo. But I'm in need of a bit of it myself. Thanks for listening to my story.

:hug: :loveya: :hug:

1. Sending prayers and light your way for starters
Or I will, tomorrow, as I'm about to collapse now into bed. What kind of work do you do anyway? Maybe now would be a good time to follow your passion into a new direction, if you aren't already. I'll be more clearheaded tomorrow, but I am praying for you, SeattleGirl :)

2. Thanks, oxbow.
I'm a vocational rehab counselor. I deal with people injured on the job, assessing their ability to work, and sometimes writing retraining plans for folks who cannot return to any previous type of work they did because of the limitations of their work-related injuries.

3. I will definitely pray for you, SeattleGirl. I'm so sorry that you're going...
through this right now. I ask that those blessed beings that work with us in the prayer thread work with you to solve your problem in a way that allows you to keep your car and help to make your financial woes come to an end very soon. (This or something better for the highest good of all involved.)

5. You've got good vibes from me.
I always have faith that my finances will work out, and they always do.

I'm not into organized religion, but I often think of that prayer:

"The Lord is my shepherd...I shall not want." :hug:

7. I just have to come from
where I come from.

I can't do any mojo or ju ju. Soz, but those terms do not even get there.

But I can do blessings.
So start with this. It isn't 'mojo'. It is a loving Universe who made every cell in your body and gives you every feeling you have ever had. And it is in the Universe's interest to make sure you survive and prosper. Because without your survival, the Universe would cease to exist. And it will not. It ensures it's survival. Every nanosecond. And you are part of that.

So turn the cells over . to the Highest Form of Intelligence.

8. Thanks votes.
I am certainly not making light of the power of the Universe by saying "mojo". Everyone has a slightly different, or very different view of that power, in terms of what they call it.

Having said that, thank you for the blessings. They are much appreciated.

9. Alright, I'm getting something
It may not be what you want to hear, but I'll just give it to you, Seattle. There are some emotional blockages that may be contributing to your situation. Don't run from the feelings that are triggered by all this. Your body is trying to process them, and the best thing for you to do is to embrace them as they come. Embrace them, and when it feels right, tell God that you are ready to think differently about this situation (or whatever past situations that this series of events is mirroring). That is the best way to break through and beyond this that I know of.

Best of luck to you, Girl. Money's tight all around, but I am expecting my situation to turn around soon,and hoping that yours does too! :loveya:

10. Your post really hit home for me.
Thank you so much. I've pretty much always felt that "there is not enough for me", particularly where money is concerned. It's like when I get to the place where I'm fine in terms of income, that "not enough" part of me kicks in and then I don't have enough. And this is what I know I need to let go of. It's not as bad as it used to be, in that I have had financially abundant times, but again, I fall back into the needy frame of mind.

I've been listening to this audio recording about creating and manifesting (and changing), and my husband bought me a view of The Secret, which I really enjoyed.

I am working on changing my energy -- particularly about money -- from a point of "want", to a point of "having what I want and need".

Again, thanks for what you said. I believe you are correct, in that there are things that are blocking me, but I AM working on them.

:hug:

13. A little exercise for you
Edited on Sat Dec-09-06 10:19 AM by oxbow
It just came to me, but this may be of help to you in your meditations:

When you are grounded and well-centered, imagine a well inside of you. This well contains the emotions that are holding you back right now. Look inside the well, try to see those emotions dispassionately, almost as if they are of someone else. Acknowledge them and feel them if you feel that is necessary. The last two sentences may seem contradictory, but they really aren't. Those emotions are not any important part of you. They were not made to stay inside you; they were made to be released. Acknowledge that you are willing to let go of them.

Now, imagine drawing water out of this well, and giving it up to God. As you do, God will either transform the water, or take it and give you something else in return. Just let Her do the work, She knows what she's doing.

Be forgiving to yourself as you wade through this work, as compassion will make it go more smoothly. It will take some time, but as you draw more and more water out of that well, the emotions will have less and less of an effect on you. It's when they accumulate that things usually become difficult.


As long as you keep working on yourself, you are pretty much guaranteed to succeed, so take heart SeattleGirl! You are strong and we are here for when you can't feel it. :hug:

14. affirmation
I just looked through my Louise Hay book of affirmations and selected one for you. Try it for a few weeks and see what happens.

"I pay my bills with love and I rejoice as I write out each check. Abundance flows freely through me."

16. It is a very trying time for sure
Edited on Mon Dec-11-06 10:53 AM by rumpel
and for so many of us. Manifestation of something positive becomes quite challenging when you constantly receive bills in shades of red, and when you can easily see the items in the back of the fridge. I often hope of a society where everyone is guaranteed a roof over the head and is supplied with the basic necessities, as guardians of that space or land. Like the HEB in Conversation with God series - and I even think it can be done

This morning, I participated in the free holographic repatterning and deeksha again, and we had quite an enlightening conversation. As one lady mentioned being at peace one moment and then being in panic (which many of us probably go through in times like this, I do) the deeksha giver, mentioned that financial problems are also part of the shift on a macro level we are going through.
It seems we have to try to get into balance - grounding with Mother Earth, as Earth Mother is abundance.

I saw the post of Stella of an article in Malaysia - which just sounds simply wonderful to try.

Sending you postive energies


on edit - I wrote this post last night - for some reason, I noticed that around midnight - I can not get to DU's server... :shrug:

19. I've read several things here and on some other sites about
financial issues being part of the shift. It's interesting, but it's also kind of scary.

I thank you for your response.

17. Money juju coming your way, SG
I know how hard it can be. I just mailed a mess of payments (had to--due dates are this Wednesday and this Friday), and I forgot that because DH shifted from being a contract employee to a FT employee, he now gets a check every OTHER week. ZOINKS the weekend and early next week is going to be a tight squeeze. I've got to hold my breath till next Thursday and hope nothing goes boing.

Come to think of it, mind if I hop on the money juju train with you? :pals:

18. I Am Praying For You Dear
...I know of what you speak and the crap you will have to wade through to get to the point of actually believing things will work out. It is always damaging to our spirits to encounter financial difficulties. But I also know that while it certainly makes life easier, material things are just not that important on the grand scale of things. You can also praise the Universe for your bad times because it is giving you even more insight as to what causes the anxiety and agony for the people you work with. It is adding to the already incredible and amazing insight you have for people, giving you even more compassion, and you already have a great deal of that, Hon. This makes you a very special person, someone who is quite rare.

When I taught at Head Start, we had this psychologist who was the most amazing, caring and insightful person I have known (and this was 30 years ago, I have yet to meet many like him except you). This man was so astute, he could walk into a classroom and watch a kid for about 15 minutes and diagnose the problem, sometimes even "curing" it right then and there. I had a panic moment once when I realized he could see right through me, but then I realized it was not scary' because he saw me through the lens of great compassion. This man's expertise was in working with kids whose parents had committed suicide ~ sometimes right in front of the child and he also worked with troubled kids of other situations as well. His deep compassion has echoed through my life to this day, because I hope I can be the kind of person who sees right through, yet I am not 'scary'. I am not there yet, and you are leaps and bounds ahead of me.

These experiences will help you in your work, I believe! I am praying you find what you need and perhaps if it means riding the bus for awhile, there you will find some interesting travel companions. I am speaking metaphorically here, but perhaps you can glean what I mean.

Hearts!

21. Hi Cat!
Thank you so much for your very kind words.

The psychologist you speak of sounds like an amazing person. People like that are true gifts, I believe.

22. The first time
Edited on Tue Dec-12-06 01:45 PM by votesomemore
I went to a LOA meetup . which is nothing more than meeting with a group of 15-20 people who believe we are all okay, but don't have our heads up our butts, no Robbins, no cheerleaders, just normal people voicing to each other what they need from an abundant universe.. it is really quite calming. Although I do get itchy sometimes.

You remember the scene in "The Secret" where the suits are sitting around the table and are all in agreement with what they will posess. It is very vague in the film. But that's what they were doing. Making a circle of agreement.

The first meeting I went to, I thought that a certain job was going to 'solve my problems'. I had it all worked out, you see? I didn't say anything at the meeting. Was playing shy for some reason. But I knew what I expected. I needed $1500 w/i a week. Really w/i a month, but I set my intention on a week. Well, a few days later an extra $500 came into my checking account. I had no idea why, exactly. It could have been from some things I have been working on the past few months.

This is something I know from my prior escapades into financial realms. I used to keep a tight eye on every penny. We always had everything we needed. My ex-dh would sometimes miss a month or two during the winter due to weather. He worked outside. If North Texas is frozen over, he didn't get to work. But we made it. Always. No one ever kicked us out or took our property.

My approach lately is much looser. I can't do the spreadsheets like I used to. I draw up a chart, if I can even find the electric and gas bill, which many times I can't. I have gotten way disorganized. But they let me know if things are on the edge, and I always have the money.

This fear of lack is not even the same as reality. Reality is, we always have 'enough'. It might be beans and rice for a few days, which could just mean, we need the extra protein boost. I have asked others (family members) to help at times. That was my fear. The fear that "I can't take care of myself".

Is the Truth that the Universe, Mother Earth, God/Goddess, never said I had to "take care of myself"? Do they not tell me over and over that they are Source. There is enough. I don't steal. I don't plan schemes to destroy people's lifes (tom delay/bush/etal).

This is the difference is us and them. We have 'enough'. They never will. When I get afraid, I ascribe it to a physical issue. Like a panic attack. Truth is, I have food. I have shelter. I have more clothes than I need. If I want to get on the road and drive somewhere, I can. We have abundance . of what we Need. I cannot figure out how it works out every time. It just has and does. And I loathe the times that I get fearful. It just isn't rational.

Our blessings are met everyday. Are they not? If not, where are we looking?
