The only bottom I want boosted is my bank account! These money laws range from financial beliefs to basic facts about money; they’ll help you boost your bank account’s bottom line.

First, here’s an interesting quote from a book with the coolest title, How to Make One Hell of a Profit and Still Get In To Heaven:

“Heaven and hell are mental states of gratitude and ingratitude respectively, so mastering your mind becomes the key to entering the realm of spiritual as well as material wealth and well-being,” writes Dr John F. DeMartini in How To Make One Hell Of A Profit and Still Get In To Heaven.

His book bridges the gap between financial wealth and healthy spirituality. You can be financially wealthy and spiritually healthy…in fact, some would say that true financial wealth isn’t possible without a healthy sense of spirituality.

Another fantastic book on money and spirituality is Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Wealth, Health, and Happiness. I’m not 100% sold on the law of attraction, but I do believe our beliefs, mindsets, and attitudes affect how much money we have…and how happy we are.

Our “money personality” affects how much debt we’re in, how much money we make, and how much money we spend. But no matter what our personalities are, money is still governed by certain laws…

8 Money Laws to Boost Your Bank Account’s Bottom Line

The more you know about the laws of money, the more likely you’ll be to attract more money into your life. And that’s what we’re after, isn’t it? A more prosperous bottom line?

Ah, but most of us want more than a prosperous bottom line in our bank accounts. We want to be happy, too.

Your spiritual and emotional health affects your income and spending habits

We can’t compartmentalize our lives into different boxes. That is, our spiritual and emotional health affects our physical health, and vice versa. Our physical health affects our financial health, and vice versa. Our financial life affects our love relationships, which affects our work life, which spills over into our recreation and social lives.

Our money beliefs don’t just affect our bank accounts – they affect our ability to enjoy financial abundance, pay off debt, and even retire early and comfortably. That’s the first law of money: how we spend and save money is directly connected to who we are.

Money begets more money

Why do the rich get richer? Because…

“Accumulated money acts like a magnet: the more you have, the more you can attract,” writes DeMartini in  How To Make One Hell Of A Profit. When you save your nickels and dimes, they will eventually become quarters and dollars. When you focus on how much money you have – how spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially wealthy you are right now – you set yourself up to attract more financial abundance.

The second money law includes the flipside of money begetting money: debt begets more debt.

You have to spend money to make money

If you’re willing to invest in yourself financially, the Universe will return your investment to you, both financially and spiritually! A perfect example is a course on investing money or retiring with a million bucks to spare. It can cost a few hundred dollars to go on a weekend or week-long retreat, but the financial growth can be priceless.

Other ways to invest in yourself include upgrading your skills so you can move up at work and taking time to read books about money beliefs and your relationship to money.

Faulty or wrong money illusions can limit your bank account’s bottom line

According to DeMartini, a common money illusion is that there’s not enough money. Money is limited, so you’ll never boost your bank account’s bottom line. But that’s not true! One of the most exciting money laws is that there is no limit to the amount of money you can accumulate!

“Since the universe is literally infinite, with inexhaustible, transformable resources, your financial possibilities are also unlimited. Your immortal self or soul knows this, but your mortal self thinks in terms of limitations and finites,” he writes.

Apply this law for saving money to your life by not succumbing to envy or bitterness if your colleague or neighbor receives a financial windfall. Another person’s success does not mean there’s less money for you!

Are your money beliefs or faulty money illusions preventing you from enjoying and saving money? Take a look at Brad Yates and Joe Vitale’s program, Money Beyond Belief. They reveal more laws about money.

Your natural abilities and talents will make your bank account bigger

How do you spend your days – what are you doing to earn a living? If you’re twisting yourself out of all recognition, then you won’t make or save more money, even if you’re making lots of money. To boost your bank account, you need to pay attention to the money law that says you need to follow your natural abilities and talents!

Figure out what job or career represents who you really are spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and professionally.

Being generous doesn’t lead to lack of money – it boosts your bottom line!

I grew up with a single mom and no money; we were on welfare and got our groceries from the food bank. I grew up clutching every penny, and I still can’t enjoy my money or what it brings (which is why I wrote Tips for Enjoying Your Money for Penny Pinchers and Savers).

I’m slowly learning that one of the most vital money laws – and laws of the Universe – is that giving your time, money, and energy brings you MORE time, money, and energy! Just like money begets money: generosity begets generosity.

Spiritual abundance brings financial abundance

Notice what it’s like when you feel abundant. Imagine having everything you could ever want in your life and notice your thoughts, emotions and physical energy level. Abundance feels open, uplifting, enthusiastic and joyful. Turn up this feeling of abundance and let it vibrate down into your cells. When you go through your day in a state of abundance you will naturally create and attract financial success.

Paying yourself first increases wealth

A money saving tip you hear over and over is to pay yourself worth. Why? Because it’s a basic money law that always remains true.

Paying yourself first encourages you to take care of yourself – to treat yourself with honor, respect, and compassion. The more you love, kindness, and wealth you give to yourself – even in the form of saving $20 from your paycheck – the more love, kindness, and wealth you will receive.

  1. Thanks for your comment, Randy. I’m guilty of being greedy with my money. Even now that I know that it’s a “money law” that being generous actually brings you more money, I’m still scared to spend money. Comes from a poor childhood.

  2. My favorite money law is the one about not being greedy. You didn’t exactly say it here, but the more you hold on to your money, the more it will run away from you. You have to be generous with your money if you want to increase your bank account’s bottom line.
