Let's start out with the
words we don't want to say and hear, but they may hit home and cause
you to take stock...
Do you criticize money in
and speech? Do you speak negatively of your bank balance or business
income? Have you thought of money as a “necessary evil”, “the root of
all evil”, “filthy lucre”? How do you feel when others have more money
than you do?
Well, this Valentine's Day
good time to take stock of these patterns and understand once and for
all, that any of these ideas will certainly prevent the flow of
prosperity to you.
Dr. Joseph Murphy
taught...if you criticize money, it will fly away from you.
Is This So?
Remember that what we focus
attract. If you focus on not having enough money, you will continue to
not have enough money. If you envy someone else’s money, you are really
telling your subconscious that you don’t have any. Your mind gets the
same message if you live in a state of fear about money or give money a
negative connotation. Remember, spiritual substance responds to our
words and thoughts. Money has no more negative attribute than gold,
silver, wheat, sheep or any other form of value exchange ever used.
How many of you are
many of you believe that when you love your plants, you nurture them
and they are happier and healthier plants?
about your children? What happens when you love them and nurture them?
Is there anything you can think of in your life that does not grow and
prosper when showered with love and blessing and praise? If you love
your body, it will respond with health and vitality. If you love your
work or your business, it will grow and prosper. Well, you can also
love money right into your life.
Dr. Murphy said that if we
criticize money, it will fly from us. We must learn to love money. That
means to love your checkbook, your bank accounts, your online
statements – everything associated with money. Love money and you will
attract it. Anything that you love, praise and bless will grow and
prosper – be it human, animate or inanimate. Spiritual substance
responds to our blessings and love.
I had one student who
looking in her checkbook. I had her think of her checkbook with human
characteristics and feelings. A feeling object that didn’t want to be
rejected and feared. It wanted warm and fuzzies – love and
appreciation. We laughed picturing her checkbook wanting hugs. She
released her fear of looking in her checkbook. And she was well on her
way to attracting money so that there would be even more to love.
Another student had checks
and running with glee into his pockets. This was an Internet
businessman who used constant humor to attract money.
Do these methods feel
silly? Will you feel silly loving money? Sure. Why not? I say feel
silly all the way to the bank. :-)
Think of the larger
you learning to “embrace” your prosperity? And haven’t we learned that
the subconscious takes things literally?
Love money and have fun
with it - and have fun making it. The more fun you can have with
prosperity, the more you will attract.
Is Money, Anyway?
I want to share a few
excerpts from Charles Fillmore – the founder of Unity.
These are excepts from his work entitled Prosperity.
This is part of the introduction to my Feel Free to Prosper
spiritual substance from which comes all visible wealth is never
depleted. It is right with you all the time and responds to your faith
in it and your demands on it. It is not affected by our ignorant talk
of hard times, though WE are affected because our thoughts and words
govern our demonstration. The unfailing resource is always ready to
give. It has no choice in the matter; it must give, for that is its
nature. Pour your living words of faith into the omnipresent substance,
and you will be prospered though all the banks in the world close their
doors. Turn the great energy of your thinking toward "plenty" ideas,
and you will have plenty regardless of what men about you are saying or
spiritual substance is steadfast and immovable, enduring. It does not
fluctuate with market reports. It does not decrease in "hard times" nor
increase in "good times." It cannot be hoarded away to cause a
deficiency in supply and a higher price. It cannot be exhausted in
doles to meet the needs of privation. It is ever the same, constant,
abundant, freely circulating and available.
Spirit substance stands back of and gives support to man's every
thought and word. It is ready to provide food for all living creatures
we are to go forward spiritually, we must not waste our thought stuff
in idle thoughts, in thinking thoughts of poverty, discontent,
jealousy. We should positively weed out of consciousness all thoughts
of poverty and failure, and in thinking or speaking of our affairs we
should use the very highest and best language at our command."
doesn’t this description of spiritual substance suggest a Divine form
of love – the love of the creator for its creations. "Ready to provide
for all living creatures everywhere." I can think of no higher form of
love than the Love that Spirit holds for us. And all we need to do is
open our minds and hearts to the Divine gifts. And included in those
gifts is money.
Yes, you can
money - pure spiritual substance in the form of money. We have
discussed what happens if you don’t love money. If you criticize money,
you will repel it. If you buy into some antiquated belief that it is
the root of evil or filthy, you will repel it. If you envy someone
else’s money, you will repel it. If are afraid to go to your checkbook
or bank account to see the balance, you will repel it. If you are in a
constant state of worry or fear about money, you will repel it.
Isn't it time
that you became a magnet for money and prosperity?
Isn't it time for you to learn to love money? How
about starting now - for Valentine's Day?
Here's a reminder...
