Have you ever noticed that most people are naturally conditioned to focus on things that are not working in their life? Whether you are talking weather, sports, parenting, or finances, everyone seems to have a complaint, sad story, or frustration to talk about. For anyone that that has ever experienced hard economic times this is especially true.
While the nature of these ” financial bumps in the road” may seem to be centered around financial or money choices that didn't work out, it is very important to not let the negatives of the past pull your energy down the vibrational scale. Why? It is because your vibrational outputs attract things to you that determine your future. If you carry the energy signals of financial losses, defeat, mistakes, and problems, that is what you will attract.
In order to successfully attract more aligned financial experiences in your life, you must shift your energy up the vibrational scale and by doing that you WILL tap into the solution part of the brain! This is done by changing your focus. Instead of focusing on what is not, or has not, worked for you, you must choose to look at what is working. Where you focus your attention is truly up to you and really has a huge part in what you manifest
Five Question Framework (FQF)
To get started, lets use a tool called the Five Question Framework (or FQF). Basically, this is a series of questions that allow you to let go of the things that are not working and identify the things that are. While this process can work in a variety of areas, it is especially relevant if you are seeming to have any financial bumps in the road from your perspective. Each person will have a different perception on what is a financial bump in the road so this can serve you no matter where your sense of your reality is in that area.
The first set of questions in the FQF tool should be answered based on your current situation or past behaviors. This set focuses on actions, mostly, and tangible things that have been done. Take the time to really be honest and address each question carefully for maximum results.
Here are the questions:
- What is working?
- Why is it working?
- What is not quite right yet?
- What would make it more right? …And how do I want to feel?
- What is the next action I can take to feel more of the way I want to feel?
The second set of questions is also centered around your situation, but delves much deeper into the feelings associated with it. They are:
- What don't I want and what don't I want to feel in this current experience?
- What do I want to feel more of?
- How can I feel a little bit more of that right now?
- What action can I take, or thought can I think, to move up the vibrational scale just a little bit?
Financial bumps like any kind of bump in your life or work requires you to see if as going through a journey and to first make peace with where you are on that journey and that to move through that journey you will need to make energy shifts in your perceptions. The important thing to remember, though, is that the size of the shift is not what is important, but that a shift is being made at all! Any shift up the vibrational scale begins to reinforce and strengthen a neural pathway that will begin activating a solution in your life with any bumps!
FQF is a process of training your focus and allowing you a better connection with Spirit. As you begin to use it, you will find that you will be drawn to do the things that work and the things that work will be drawn to you as well! Even when facing any kind of bump in the road in your life or work…you have the power to activate more of what you want and less of what you don't want!
