Nneka’s Increasing Allowance
When I found the Abraham-Hicks material, I was already an avid meditator, steeped in New Thought and positive thinking.
Problem was, it was all woo-woo and non-physical. I wanted to play with energy.
I was asking, “Now what?”
The answer came when I led a class on Ask and It is Given.
So, I’m leading this class, and being a little resistant and sarcastic, but going along anyway. And one week we were practicing the Wouldn’t It Be Nice process.
I was walking around the lake and I decided to try it out.
I said to myself, “Wouldn’t it be nice if I got a date?”
Two seconds later (I kid you not) a guy turns on his bike and starts chatting me up. He starts off with, “Don’t I know you from somewhere?” I never dated before, even though I was married for 7 years and going through a divorce. I didn’t know what that line meant. So I answered him literally. But he kept on talking. Then I realized, “Oh! He likes me.”
I knew he was going to ask me out. And he did.
That manifestation got my attention.
I decided to take this stuff out for a spin. I embraced the philosophy that life is supposed to be fun.
I really grokked what it meant to be God expressing. I got contrast. I understood the point of sifting. I got that I couldn’t get it wrong and that I could just experiment.
So, I went to experimenting. But first I decided that I want to be wealthy.
I figure, if I’m going to be on the planet, I want to play with money.
At the time, my manifest life looked like this…
I was going through a divorce. I did a short sale on my house and was left with a home equity loan, but no home. I was $15,000 in debt. My credit was shot. I was managing my expenses with my income and occasionally using credit cards. I had less than $2,500 savings because my employer was taking it out of my check (seemingly against my will). I did not have access to savings so it felt like I had no savings. I severely limited my spending to keep it within my income.
But, I’d been meditating everyday for a year so I was in the Vortex a lot.
Leaves (and Money) Everywhere!
Soon after I made the decision to be wealthy, I found the leaf process.
I practiced it. I looked around all day every day and I saw all the leaves and I got that it’s money – so much money.
Take a look out of your window now. Even if it’s winter where you live, there are trees with leaves, and there’s grass. There are plants with leaves. Shrubs. There are leaves on the ground. Leaves are everywhere.
Even if you are in a metropolis and they don’t have grand trees outside.
Look in people’s windows.
Now, take a drive to a nearby park. See how many leaves there are?
There’s even more money!!!
So, I started to see the leaves around everywhere all the time. Every leaf, every blade of grass – a dollar bill. All around. Totally available.
I got that money is everywhere, but it still felt out of my reach.
Increasing My Allowance
I tried Abe’s debt process to reduce my debt, but that felt upstream. What I did instead was I started to affirm that “I am increasing my Allowance.”
Great pun on the word allowance.
When we’re kids, we get an allowance of money. In Abe speak, it is step three.
We allow our manifestations to come forth. They are already there.
It’s a soft affirmation. I say it still.
I am increasing my allowance.
So with the leaves, the money was there, but not accessible – like my employer’s savings account.
With the affirmation, I started opening to it!
By this time, I was three months into Abe. I decided to go to one of their workshops in Orlando.
When I went to that workshop, I gasped at the $195 ticket price. Not to mention the hotel room, rental car, and gas money. It was the first time in my life that I invested in my personal growth. Though, I always said that I valued my personal growth, I never invested. Needless to say there was a little pinch.
I went. And I had a blast. And it blew open my allowance. So much so that when I returned, the following three events happened.
When I got back to Raleigh, I was flying high. I bought a lottery ticket and won!
After winning the lottery, I decided to test drive a car. I purchased a one year old silver Sonata with a sunroof. Remember, at this time, my credit was a mess. So I got the car loan at a lower rate than my previous car loan (back when I had good credit).
Third, one day, I’m sitting at my desk, and one of our contractors came by and asked me when I was going to work on the project with him. I was the project lead before with him as the contractor. He liked working with me. I explained that I didn’t know, but I’m thinking about getting another job. He was intrigued.
Within 24 hours, I had a call from his HR department to set up interviews.
Turns out that he was the first employee hired by his company and had very close ties with the owner. I had no idea.
I got that job and with it a 22% raise!
That was just the salary.
I continued to work on my vibe regarding money. Very softly. Very easily. I continued to affirm that I was increasing my allowance.
After working with the company for about four months, I got a bonus that wiped out my credit card debt!
Side bar: Work was my path of least resistance for money. I believed that I could always work for money. I’ve been exceptional at manifesting perfect jobs for me at every point in my life. I can manifest the perfect job for me in 30 days in any economy. I’ve done it many times.
Back to the story…
The job got stressful, which I didn’t really like.
While I was shooting off rockets of more ease with work, more money, more autonomy, more freedom with my life; I took the opportunity to line up where I was. I realized that my not good enough beliefs were creating resistance. So, I went to work on that.
Whenever I got a hit of that not good enough feeling, I soothe myself.
Gentle. Easy. Loving. Over and over.
By then, I was feeling financially comfortable. I was working on my money vibe for fun. It was more about feeling good at work because I spend a lot of time there. I wasn’t soothing myself to get a better job or change in anyway. I just reasoned that if I was going to be at work, I may as well feel good. And so, I soothe, and soothe, and soothe.
I soothed my way into a promotion after working for the company a little over 15 months, and with the promotion received a substantial raise that put me well over 6 figures.
Now, I’m working on my business because I want to create it. I want to build it. I enjoy playing with money. I’m having a ball with life.
Money is everywhere and there’s LOTS of it.
Allowance is the key. Check out Slacker Manifesting to allow even easier.
We’re in the game of life. Keep it light and have fun.
You are ever-expanding. There’s always more. Bask in it!
