You never know how strong you are,
Until being strong,
is your only option.
Written By Balanced Soul
Well happy weekend, Balanced Souls!! I just stumbled over this exercise and got REALLY excited (well, when am I not…) and I thought, LET’S DO IT! I was going to wait to post it, then decided that’s just plain silly. So I’m starting TODAY and I invite you ALL to join me and see what happens in your life.
We have chatted plenty about Affirmations and the Law of Attraction here, so this exercise should come as one that feels harmonious with all of that. I think we could also use this principle to write ourSelves other manifestations, too…but START HERE!!
(and check out this lovely blog. I’m really excited to have found her!)
Writing is a powerful way to get unblocked and back into flow, and one of the areas we often seem to be out of flow is around the area of Abundance.
Abundance can be many things to many people, but there is always one common component to everyone’s idea of an abundant life – an absence of lack.
So how do we write ourselves into Abundance? The first thing we need to do is edge ourselves out of limited thinking. You know what I mean – limited thinking is that space where we say to ourselves:
‘I can’t because I don’t have enough time, money, education,emotional support, skill, connection, opportunity, love, health,peace, stability, direction, Byron Bay Organic Donuts (trust me when I say if you’ve eaten one you know what I’m talking about) or whatever is your usual self-talk…’
Now what I’m going to suggest today may sound a little materialistic to start off with, but bear with me. This is a great process, and once you get into it it becomes fun, and opens you up to so many possibilities and new ideas, as well as the resurrection of old ideas that are lurking, starved and lonely, in the dark dusty corners of your mind.
This week we’re going to spend money!
Well, write about it as if we have that cash in our hands and can spend it on whatever we like…
Your task this week (and into the following months if you enjoy this exercise) is to start at the smallest amount of money, and spend the lot. You can spend more than one amount of money at a time, but you must spend in order: ie Cash Sum 1, Cash Sum 2, etc. You cannot move onto the next sum of money until you have completely spent the one before.
Simply write HOW you will spend the money, being as specific as you can. Feel free to get brochures or cost things out on the internet. Let your imagination go to town, and allow yourself to become emotionally involved in spending this cash!
This activity helps clear out our anxiety, fear and worry around money, and assists us to get to what we really want from life and for ourselves. Enter this activity with a spirit of adventure and curiosity.

It doesn’t matter how you spend this cash – it only matters that you spend it. Once you have spent the money, for the purposes of this activity consider that task done. For example if you borrowed twenty dollars and you use your first Cash Sum to pay that back, tomorrow you don’t have to worry about repaying that debt – it’s done – so move on to the next thing. (of course, in real life you will still need to pay that twenty back…)
Cash Sums to be spent energetically
Pay attention to how your feelings change as you go from the smaller sums to the larger sums. Write in as much detail as possible. Really let yourself play and have fun with this. Allow yourself to get excited. Know that what you are doing is actually the Law of Attraction in action as you inform the Universe of your intentions and desires.
Get a little creative…
