|Need Money Now?|
Ok, I understand. You want money today, and you want to know how.
But first let me ask you something….
When you are saying that you need money now, you still have some money now, right?
When you say that you are broke, I know that what you mean is that you’re not really penniless. You should have some money left. This is especially true if you can read this very article right now.
Now, I have something to share with you if you want to know how to get some money.
Recently, I really had few money left in my bank account. My bank account was almost drained. I make money online, and sales were not that great at that time. I already spent the rest of my money for other things.
Then, one day I saw on the Internet that there was going to be a huge event – international event that I really wanted to attend so, so, very badly. I had been dreaming of going to such an event for years.
Previously I could only see some videos on YouTube.
Problem was, I only had some money to pay for the ticket and book round-trip flights. I still needed some more money for taxis and bus.
I was so confused.
I still had a few weeks before the event was held, so I had some time to figure out how I could get some extra money that I needed.
Then, one principle I learned from Joe Vitale struck my mind:
“Give money away”
Yes, I should give my money away, even though I only had less than $10 left in my PayPal account. I remember Joe said that even though you give your money away sincerely and empty your wallet now, money is going to come to you anyway.
I also remember a verse in the Holy Qur’an:
“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He pleases. And Allah is All- Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.” – Q.S. Al-Baqarah, 2:261
I realized that I could give some money via my PayPal account, because my bank account was almost drained, remember? lol.
I then decided to give $5 to an organization I supported (Islamic Aid), and prayed to God (or The Universe, or The Divine, etc). Yes, only $5.
I prayed to and asked God to give me money for the transportation so I could go to the event.
Well, you know what?
God finally gave me more than I needed one week before the event started. I made some sales for a couple products that I sold as an affiliate online. I attracted the money I wanted!
Keep in mind that I didn't just sit and do nothing.
I still promoted the products I was selling online.
I was so grateful for that, and I believed that if I gave money away again, I would still get more money – so I gave away another $3.
Then, when I checked one of my affiliate accounts that I abandoned for some time, surprisingly I also found $30 in sales! That’s obviously not much, but it was still miraculous for me! I almost forgot about that account, and when I needed money, bam! Suddenly there’s money there.
Finally, I was able to go to the event.
I was so happy that day! Even until now, I’m still very happy every time I remember that event (and the process how I attracted money for it).
So if you need money now, just give your money to someone or an organization that inspire you. It is very important that you don’t just give money to some random people, because the feeling will be different.
If you give money to someone / an organization that has given you inspiration or has helped you, you will be more sincere when giving, and God / The Divine / The Universe knows what you are feeling.
After you do that, believe that the Divine will take care of the money you need. Also, you need to take an inspired action – write a blog post, sell your used stuff, call someone, anything!
I also remembered Joe saying that we should have Divine intentions in using the Law of Attraction. We should get our ego out of our intentions. Even though I have a different religious belief from him, I know he’s right.
He gave an example that he wanted to attract money for his Operation YES (to end homelessness), that’s Divine intention. So I decided that I wanted to go to the event I had been dreaming of to go to and then share what I learned so I could help people through my blogs (I have other blogs than this) after I got back from there, so God could reward me, not only in this world, but also in the hereafter.
"Verily actions are by intentions, and for every person is what he intended."- Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H)
“I need money now!” – Give money away then.
