Making Money Writing

Do you want to make money as a writer? I've already talked about the need for a plan. A clear goal. That's the WHAT. And I've talked about a strong reason for achieving it. That's the WHY. But you also need to BELIEVE that you CAN achieve it. "Whatever you can conceive, you can achieve...if you believe."

Now you've probably heard about this idea, the notion of belief. But I want to take it one step further. You don't just need to believe you can be or do need to believe you're ALREADY IT NOW.

Life responds to us by corresponding to Its own nature in us. In other words, if you want to manifest more wealth as a writer, you must FEEL LIKE A WEALTHY WRITER NOW. That feeling tone is literally the substance of the wealth you desire. And it will act as a magnet, attracting to you the right opportunities to manifest the wealth you desire.

But how do you generate that 'feeling tone'? There are many ways, but one easy way is through creative visualization. I'm sure you've heard of this process...however, I want you to use it in a slightly different way...

Take a moment to get still, close your eyes, and imagine yourself living the successful writing life, being and doing what a wealthy writer does. Now become aware of what it FEELS like to be the wealthy writer. Really pay attention to the feeling tone, the vibration in your body. Where is it located? How does it feel? Let go of the pictures and just stay with the feeling. Allow it to expand, to fill your whole body, to expand beyond your body...until you're literally swimming in this feeling...

Now make a commitment to yourself to become more acquainted with this feeling tone, to make it a part of your everyday life, to contemplate it, think about it, and dwell in it more.

As you do this on a regular basis, that feeling tone of being a wealthy writer will become embodied as a permanent part of your consciousness. And as that happens, it will begin to attract to you its equivalent in your experience.

This is the law of cause and effect at its very basic operation. And now you know how to put it into operation on your behalf...

Until we talk again...keep feelin' it!
