(And either of you feel free to jump in and tell me I'm wrong about my understanding of what you mean. Though I am kind of happy with my interpretation. )
Yeah...that's pretty much what I meant.

We all have moments when we get into that kind of space.

I think Crunchy and I are saying very similar things in different ways! And I really like how you drove home the point about being secure with ourselves. Because, when we are *on top of our game* those other emotions just creep in and slip out. When we aren't, they tend to linger and form habits and create/attract things we *don't* want.

The best thing I've ever contributed to a relationship was me liking and being comfortable with myself.

Amris...

Is there another way to create the money you want?

I'd give you some money. Not the whole amount, but I'd think of it as investing in something I believe in and money well spent to help someone positively affect others.

I suddenly have a line from "Lion King 1 1/2" in my head - "look beyond what you see."

Amris,
isn't it funny how fast we go from "The Universe likes speed" to "I've been trying for sooooo long!"? to you! It's been, what? 7 weeks? 8? You've been working hard, and speeding along and you took a great leap of faith.

I think the best I can suggest is to breathe and relax and be open to all sorts of wonderful possibilities. It seems like either you instantly make a lot of money from the book and messages, OR you go get another job that you hate and someone else "raises your kid". There are other possibilities, my dear, even though you don't see them right now.

I know it's hard. Believe me, looking for a job is one of my least favorite things in the world, and some pages back when I read about a "game" of if you had $100 and had 24 hours to double it, what would you do? my short answer was panic!

The Universe is big and full of possibilities; it is only our fears and resistance that keeps it from pouring through us! Please be kind to yourself, maybe read some of the excellent posts lately about $$ fears, and know we love you!

amris, a quick thought...can you take pre-orders for your book to raise the money for the softcover? i don't know too much about book publishing, but that thought popped into my head.

Thanks!!!
I feel really prepared and confident and I heard Doreen Virtue say the angel for memory and test taking is Zadkiel (not sure on the spelling) so with him on my side, that will help too! Amazing how I attracted that little piece of info before my test!!!

I don't know the slightest little thing about publishing, so I have no good advice to give, but I wanted to give you s

In the grand scheme of bill paying, 7 weeks IS a long time. I don't mean that offensively, but seriously. I've been working my butt off. I haven't exactly been doing nothing for those 7 weeks. I've worked harder in the last 7 weeks than I did before that when I had a job.

That being said, that wasn't really what I meant. I meant working on keeping the faith regarding money.

I could, but I won't know how much they'll cost unless I buy the dist. package. I didn't know what retail of the hardback was until then, and I won't know on this one, either, until then.

So how do I know how much to charge for a preorder?

Thank you! Thank You! Thank You Mamas!.....

......for the advice! I just read the whole weekly thread and WOW! you ladies are inspirational.

I am really trying to just chill out and stop freaking out about the whole house thing. Part of it I realized is I have put so much into all of this and it is the fear of coming out empty handed. Of course, as soon as I say that I realize I COULD NEVER COME OUT EMPTY HANDED b/c just look at how abundant my life is.

Just trying to find happy moments in my life right now.

Amris,

I have been lurking and watching your endeavor these past months. I am so happy for you. Congratulations about your book! Don't forget to celebrate in the accomplishment and let those feeling propel you forward into success!
post #549 of 753
The thing is, too. I do HAVE the money. But it's not within the budget. In a couple of weeks, I'll need that money.

Plus, if I spend it, I have to justify it now (where I didn't when I was actually helping pay the bills).

If I spend it, and I don't make it back... I will have failed, and that money will simply be gone.

And already, I've put us into a financially untenable position by the paycheck i didn't get this last week, although my taxes will cover that, so I'm not overly stressed on that... it's this coming week where I'll basically be getting (via tax return) only about a "half" paycheck.

Hi all. I'm trying really hard to keep up here. lol. (I'm failing miserably. lol)

I'm trying to really "get" LoA. I understand the process, but I'm not sure I get how it works. I think it's something that has to come to me, perhaps.

I do have a question, and I hope it hasn't been asked a million and one times already. What phrasing do I use to say this: "We have plenty of money to pay our bills and live comfortably"
Is it best to go further than that, and just focus on feeling financially secure? I'm guessing I wouldn't want to specify how the money came (ie, dp gets more students).
We're almost paying our monthly bills, and the rest is coming from an inheritence. It will feel really good when we can pay our bills and living expenses with dp's income alone (and not feel bad when we order a pizza once every few months. lol)!

Amris, I hear a lot of black and white thinking. Either "I am valuable if I earn money" OR "I failed if I don't earn my way"?

Could you find a space for "I am an intuitive writer and money flows toward me and I am financially comfortable; in between times, other opportunities open up for me when I need them".

The possibilities are abundant when you look at everything as adding value to your life.

You are exactly where you need to be. All is well. Feel the peace, possibilities and choices!

Pat

Chances are the school will just call cps anyways, so I'd talk to the kid and see what he wants. I had a friend in a similar situation back in the day, he didnt' want cps involved, he just wanted to hold out the last couple months till he was 18. He did make it and is happy and pretty health now too


And Amris, I'd plan for a softback, maybe even put aside a small part of each sale till then, but go with what you've got for now if adding it now would add to your stress. Though it's not equal to a full paycheck, just think that each week, you should get something off that. So it may not be equal to at first, but if you get a couple sales a week, plus maybe do a ready or two as well, won't that be better?

I sure understand the stress, we're dealing with the same here. Though I'm about a month away from the panic point, so I'm really working to hold on to my faith that things will work out before then.

In the mean time, I did manifest the Louise Hay book, which is so cool. And either dh or I (or both) manifested his car and the motorcycle he's storing for someone both being repaired, kinda spotaneously, the bike just started right up. And, after that, I got him to say an affirmation He laughed and thought I was crazy, but hey, its a start lol

Amris, did you see the calculator at lulu? http://www.lulu.com/products/books/paperback.php There's a book cost calculator on the left.

If you figure out a price, you can take pre-orders and determine how many sales you need to make to fund the ISBN. Just get people to PP you the amount plus shipping, and then order the quanity of books you'll need to fulfill those orders. The added bonus here is that you can buy them in bulk yourself for those customers, and increase your margins. Maybe promote this as X number of autographed copies.

Ultimately, I think you should do whatever feels best to you right now. If it feels right to go with a softback, then do that. If it feels right to leave it alone for the moment, then do that. But I do agree that aligning with your decision is important before taking action. So, make a decision and then work on feeling really good about it before you take action. Remember, you're not stuck with any decision! You could align and then change your mind and feel good about going another way! But definitely line up your energy first, and that's when you'll see miracles!

I also TOTALLY agree with Pat that there is more grey than you are allowing yourself to see. This should be about having fun. Trust that money can come to you in any number of ways, and then you will find those ways opening up to you. This is a wonderful thing you're doing, and you don't need to make your fortune on this book in order to validate that. Give yourself some of the love you so readily share with others!

It calculates your cost. 5 dollars of pages, plus 2 dollars for the binding, plus 1.50 for the whatnot.

Not how much retail price would be.

I'm open to it. I'm also doing the mental work to manifest it. I don't really CARE where the money comes from, so long as I don't have to ditch my child with someone else, or stay up all night and be useless to her, and so long as it provides enough for comfort and peace of mind.

The problem is, so far there's nothing to be open TO. I'm actively inviting money into my life. Would be nice if it did its part and showed up for the shindig.

Yep, my answer was that I have nooooooo idea how I would double my $100.

I think something along the lines of your "we have plenty of money to pay our bills and live comfortably" is good.

Linda on the Move said Money is just numbers on paper. When we decide to allow more money into our lives, we are simply deciding to let the numbers on our accounts get bigger.
I think I left out a part of that (between the 2 sentences) when I wrote it down, but I put it in my notebook to read over and over.

Much better! Thank you!
I wrote it down, too, cause it is much easier than remember what page of the thread something was on!
Thanks April!

I just wanted to share:
This isnt so much an LOA thing, its more in line with the holosync stuff but I recently started doing The Tibetan Rites with my daughter every morning and I wanted to share it with you guys because its such an awesome way to start the day.
Its a series of 5 yoga excersizes that only take a few minutes to do and you feel so great afterwards! You start looking forward to doing them every morning and its amazing to watch your body get a little stronger and more flexible every day. They get your chakras flowing and put you into a meditative state which is a great way to start your morning.
Heres an explanation of how they work:
"the majority share the view that the rites represent a system of exercise that affects the body, emotions and mind. The Tibetans claim that these exercises activate and stimulate the seven key chakras that in turn stimulate all the glands of the endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for the body's overall functioning and aging process. This means that the Five Rites will affect the functioning of all your organs and systems, including the physical and energetic systems and that includes the aging process. The man who brought these Five Rights out of Tibet stated that "performing the Five Rites stimulates the circulation of essential life energy throughout the body".
and a print out sheet of the excersizes:

Amris, I KNOW that your book is going to do great and that orders will be enough to cover your bills. Take a deep breath and take a moment to FEEL PROUD OF YOURSELF!
It is so amazing that you did all this in just 2 months! Wow!
Tell your dh to take a hike if he cant bask in that glory with you

Maybe start brainstorming free and simple ways to promote your book; for example what just popped into my head when I was thinking about your book is:
I know that Joe Vitale helps a lot of people out by promoting in his newsletters. Maybe you could send him a message from Spirit and mention your book and see how things go from there?

Amris
Now, listen here....please.... hehe You remind me so much of how I used to think and sometimes still do... It's so, so easy to boost up someone else and give them love and encouragement or a reading/message for clarity. These things make you smile and sing inside. There's really nothing else like it...

Yet, when it comes to your own self...seeing clearly and boosting your own self up is not as easy. You've got to learn to treat yourself with just as much worthiness as you would your friend. To give that much encouragement to yourself...just as you do with everyone here and anywhere else you may go.

Dream....dream big... Remind yourself that one day you will look back on this confused feeling and know you got past it. You kept your focus and love and desires at heart. Look at your bigger picture Amris!

Twilight Zone
It's a funny feeling there, yeah! lol I rather enjoy it... It also helps to see that life doesn't have to be complicated.

Try this feeling...seeing outside of yourself...as if your whole day was co-ordinated and it's flowing by...as if watching a movie... That day was wild... lol Even now, sometimes I'll say, "knew I'd do it this way"... lol

annalily
I'm learning fast that there's no such thing as "going back and finding a post". You either get it NOW or it's gone... lol

Blessings Everyone!!! Keep Shinin'!!!

Amris, I just bought your book and sent you a very lengthy pm filled with unsolicited-but-sound marketing advice.

flowers -- love seeing you here!
