Since 2014, I have received the same questions and here are the answers which will assist you in trusting this process. Even though you might think your situation is different which of course it is, the way to shift it or change is always the same processes. Take a moment to understand the following questions and answers.
1. How is any of this going to change my financial situation?
Money is a symbolism of the way you circulate ideas. Ideas about everything. In other words, the balance of thoughts are more towards how hard, gotta get it done, restriction, not enough and so on. Most importantly the way you think about yourself, the way you identify yourself. People that lack money lack gratitude, they do not seek or think thoughts of overflow and abundance. There are driven about what they have to do to get and not about the joy of living.
2. What must I do daily?
You should practice appreciation and gratitude (visit teachings on this) do this daily because each of us is called to be a deliberate creator. This mean intend what you want and direct your life based on your emotions of appreciation and gratitude.
3. I tend to procrastinate..why can't I stick to this?
Because all your life you have been doing things the hard way. It has been reliant upon hard work and skills. Everytime you are faced with something new, it creates within you the idea of having to do more to achieve. This is not inspiring, it is not uplifting. But if you understand that this is only about changing your mental state, your emotions, you will find the joy of every day establishing what it is you desire and you will notice life responding to you in a joyful way.
4. What is the law of attraction?
This is the regulator of the Universe where you pull into your life what you are. It is a law and everything that exists is automatically affected by this law. This is why I emphasis over and over here and other teachings, to choose an emotion, choose a theme, choose a mentality to draw your experiences from. Whatever you think, feel, and say about yourself or your situations will be in your experiences.
5. Can I just decide on what I want?
Many people want because they do not have. It is always to fill a void because their emotion, their theme from child is they are not enough which is sad emotion. Sad emotion is deprivation. When people get what they want they are still not happy. It is back again to trying to feel better and nothing outside is going to change sadness to love, peace, or joy. You and only you can change it by first establishing how you want to exist, how you want your theme for life to be. If you desire more money, you need to accept that your identity is, "I AM RICH". If you desire to be healthy, you need to accept that your identity is, "I AM HEALTH". Soon as that is what you are, then by Law of Attraction, everything will line up to match who you are. Remember like attracts like.
6. My negative past and trauma how do I release them?
You release them instantly by doing the above steps. You let go when you grad unto something better. Nothing from the past nor traumas can stop you, but the idea that it can then it will. This is coming from the emotion of anger to resentment. Make a decision to be happy, to enjoy life, and follow the teachings that are here.
7. What do I do about the people in my life who are so negative?
Be happy. Do this and they will follow from your evidence that this works.
