The trouble with money is that it elicits such strong feelings from people. That is the trouble most people have with money.
If these same people were a little more objective about money, it would not be so inclined to run away from them.
That's the basic problem many people have with money. It tends to run away from them. Why? Because they either have strong feelings of revulsion or attraction towards money-- and often both at the same time.
To attract a neutral substance in your life, you must assume a neutral attitude. Money is neutral. It is neither good nor bad, it is just simply what it is--a universal means for trading things back and forth among people.
Rid yourself of your strong feelings about money and watch it gather towards you. You will find this happening as you become more objective about money.
Generally speaking, people who have money have their strongest feelings about about something other than money--their business, their family--something else entirely. In most cases, they are into it for something other than the money.
Some of the most successful people with money are also some of the most objective. They don't rock the money boat with their feelings. Instead, they let money flow--something that it definitely needs to do.
When you become too attached to money, money becomes stuck. It sticks to people and things instead of flowing gracefully from person to person. More importantly, it stops flowing towards you.
Let money flow.
In your imagination, neutralize all your strong feelings about money. Instead of worshiping it, stand way back from it and let it fulfill its essential function for you which is to bring you the things in life that you need materially.
If you will do this, you will be a better friend of money. A good friend of money has no strong feelings about money.
You want to reserve your strong feelings for those things that are important to you--your family, your religion, your life. Let your strong feelings about money go.
