The Secret to Financial Miracles (for proof it works, read till the very end)

(This was inspired by a discussion last week, in my online community, The Wealth Connection. I listened with awe to women who put this principle into practice and reported miraculous changes.)

You want to create financial miracles? Let me tell you how.

The secret is deceptively simple, incredibly powerful, yet can be so uncomfortable, many won’t want to do it.

But if you’re willing to try, and you’re consistent in your efforts, you’ll experience significant change, often within a very short time.

The secret is this: Stop telling your old story.

Stop talking about your life as it’s been: your flaws, your fears, your sorrows and distress. And start talking about the life you desire to create: who you want to be, what you want to do, how you want to feel, as if it’s already true.

“What you share you strengthen,” A Course in Miracles explains.

So ask yourself this: What do you wish to strengthen? A replay of the past. Or the life of your dreams

Instead of complaining “I can’t seem to make any money,” reframe it to “I’m excited to earn more this year.”

Granted this takes considerable vigilance and determination. And guaranteed, it will feel awkward, even phony, at first.

Yet every time you share your future aspirations (rather than rehash your past predicaments), you literally weaken the old unwanted neuropathways and strengthen new, more desirable ones.

Before you know it, you’ll find yourself making new choices, engaging in new behaviors, seeing the world differently…which is literally how you create miracles.

The magic ingredient is simply this—the words you use. Here’s a true story that illustrates the astonishing power of your words.

Phil Halmeeth is a professional poker player who’s won a record 14 World Series of Poker. But before that, he suffered an 8-year losing streak. No matter what he did, his bad luck wasn’t budging.

Then one day he changed a few words he regularly used and his life turned around.

He altered his email address from “tryingtobethegreatest” to “beingthegreatest.” To date he’s won over $22million.

As he told a Wall Street Journal reporter: “I’m a big believe in the power of the word.”

Start observing the words YOU use when talking to others and to yourself. Are they words that will create the magic you desire and deserve? Leave me a comment below.

    Thanks for sharing your great insight. This really resonated with me. It’s incredible how important our words are. My new mantra, “I’m excited to earn more $ this year!”

    • barbara huson

      Thanks so much Linda…it’s really great to hear from you and I’m so happy to know this resonated!!!! xoxoxo

    • barbara huson

      Wonderful to hear from you Linda! I’m so glad this resonated. Let me know how this mantra works for you!

  • Rebecca Stafford

    Absolutely agree!!! It’s taken me far longer than I hoped or expected to finish my book on REintegrating the habits of spirituality and science.

    But for a while now – along with forgiving myself – I talk about FINISHING my book – no longer just ‘writing it’ or “working on it.’

    Best wishes to all from New Zealand

  • Suzanne

    Today I created an “I’M EXCITED TO EARN MORE THIS YEAR!!!” alarm that will go off every day at noon!

    Thank you Barbara!


    • barbara huson

      What a great idea to set an alarm to signal repeating an affirmation. Love it. Thanks for sharing it with me.

    Hi Barbara,
    I agree about the power of words and negative influence of our old stories. One thing I’ve recently realized may be contributing to this for me is my choice of fiction reading material – often stories of adversity, struggle, deprivation, etc. While they may have happy endings, I think I’m relating to the deficit and it may be acting as a reinforcer. So I’m going to look for stories in different settings and see if that has a more positive influence on my thought patterns. Not sure how long this might take but feel it should be another positive plank in the foundational thinking I am working to achieve.
    Thanks for all your precious words of wisdom, Maria

      Maria, I’m totally fascinated by your observation…that perhaps the stories we read could effect the stories we tell ourselves. I’d love to hear what you find out as you research more positive alternatives. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Lisa

    That’s interesting, Maria.

    You seem to be identifying with the underdog story. Over the last few years, I’ve been trying to listen to more stories about people making great money without working to the point of nearly killing them self or people doing what they love while they can’t believe they’re getting paid fantastic money to do what they’re doing.

    My affirmations: Money always flows to me! There is always more money coming in!

  • Cathy

    I really enjoyed reading this…twice. The old stories are so embedded and I can forget to stop telling them out of sheer habit. Such an excellent and important reminder that I needed to hear…and it just made me happy. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    • barbara huson

      I’m so glad this made you happy, Cathy! One of the reasons I wrote it is because I totally need to be reminded of this too!!! Thanks so much for letting me know you needed to hear this too!!!

      • Cathy Harris

        You’re welcome, thank you for continuing to share all your wonderful work!! It’s been a life changer and I’ll always be grateful for that! ❤️🙏
