How to Practice Being Rich
In an earlier post I suggested that what it takes to be rich is practice.
Because many of us don’t land on those wealth vibes accidentally.
Rather it’s something we can choose to acclimate to consciously and deliberately. Especially if our habitual money vibe has been dialed on “not enough” or “need more.”
In the comments Jacqui asked how one goes about practicing being rich, which seems worthy of discussion.
Until it’s our reality (indeed, a key step to it becoming reality), is to imagine being rich …
- to see the pictures of being rich in our mind’s eye
- to think the thoughts of it
- to behave the behavior of it
- to feel the feelings of it.
When I was practicing wealth the other day, I asked myself how I would feel differently as a rich person:
What would it be like to know I was rolling in big fat cash with ease and joy? Would I think different thoughts? Would I feel different feelings? Would I do different things?
If so, those are the thoughts and feelings I want to practice.
What does a rich person think? How does she see the world? What does she do different than what I’m doing?
Does a rich girl eat cereal & fruit for breakfast on the front porch in her pjs? Turns out my version does. No adjustment needed there.
(Obviously it’s potentially different for each of us, since we all get to choose our own idea of what we want.)
Does she skip a shower and get straight to work, or does she exercise or meditate instead?
In tuning in, I realized my rich girl does get cleaned up, but she makes it quick because she’s excited to get to work.
She definitely doesn’t worry about whether that big bill is coming in the mail today. And she doesn’t grumble about how expensive organic raspberries have gotten.
Does she sing along to the Lakshmi chant? My version does, but she does it in the form of thanks and appreciation rather than as a request or unfulfilled desire.
Whatever my rich girl would do/think/say, when I follow suit now I help close the vibrational gap on being wealthy.
And we just do that to whatever extent we’re able, since some parts may be different than we can fully change in this red hot moment. But the parts we can play with – there’s tremendous alignment opportunity there.
The more we practice it, the stronger our rich vibe gets. And we’re undeniable to Universe when we dial in there.
