April 2009 Knowledge Newsletter
Many of us continue to be concerned about money issues as the recession continues to affect us all. I want to address the issue of what money means to us personally and in our society, and how we can manifest abundance and prosperity into our lives.
We live in a society where our status is often pared with our earnings or possessions. The more we have, the higher our standing. If you are person with little money, you may believe that having more money would solve all your problems.
We tend to look upon people with money as being happy, successful, free to do whatever they like, buy whatever they want, and even have people to serve them. While it is true that with excess money you can purchase a lot of things anytime you like, but I am quite convinced that not all people with money are happy, free to do whatever they like or have perfect relationships, good health, etc. This is a projection we place on them because from our point of view that is how they appear to us or what we would like to believe.
While having more money may relieve the worry over debt and the feelings of failure that often accompany debt, it does not change our beliefs about money. Money does not ensure happiness. I have known many wealthy people and they have the same needs, desires and problems just like everyone else.
So let us explore what money means to each of us. Does it represent security, success in the world, the freedom to make new choices, increased status in your community, having power or control over others or do you see it as a means to happiness? Take a moment and ask yourself what money means to you.
Most of the things that we really desire in life cost nothing - like happiness, peace of mind, joy, feeling fulfilled, feeling loved, being surrounded by a loving family, having a devoted partner and so on. This list could go on and on. If these things cost nothing and they are the things that bring us pleasure and fulfillment, then why do we always desire more money? For some reason, money and the things it can buy is equated with attaining happiness. The real truth is that LOVE has the greatest power to transform and bring us happiness.
The more we focus on what we don’t have, the more we feel cheated and unhappy. We tend to believe that somehow we lost out or failed to achieve success. We may perceive ourselves as losers and feel like victims, but are we? From speaking with a lot of people, I have noticed that people, who most often believe life is unfair, that they got a raw deal, were cheated out of what was supposed to be theirs, often have a low self image and a poverty mentality. They give up before they even try because they have decided in advance they will fail.
I know that these attitudes are changeable although it takes continued effort. We can choose to see ourselves as failures or successes. Many people who see themselves as failures are afraid of success, NOT incapable of it. Because of this fear, they find excuses as to why they can never succeed and remain unhappy and unfulfilled.
What most people fail to realize is that we all have the power to manifest whatever we want in life. It is important to remember that we are responsible for creating our own prosperity. We all have God within us, therefore we are able to manifest whatever we want if we stay heart centered and not negatively focused.
In fourth and fifth dimensional consciousness, manifesting happens almost immediately whereas in third dimensional reality, there is always a bit of a wait between placing our order for what we want and getting it.
But there is a catch. In order to live in fourth and fifth dimensional consciousness, we need to have unity consciousness. Unity consciousness is a belief that we are all connected. There is no belief in separation or “them and us” thinking. We are all one. We need to realize that we each have a personal connection with the Divine. We need to trust that when we place our order for what we want in life, we will receive it. For example, when you order a sandwich in a restaurant, do you worry if you will get what you ordered? No! You sit and wait until your order arrives. Well ordering from the universe works exactly the same way. If you stay in a trusting place and remain positive that your order will arrive in due time, it will arrive.
Fear based thinking and poverty consciousness is a human creation. It was never intended to be part of the Divine Plan that we struggle to pay our bills and to
survive. We incarnated here solely to fulfill our life purpose and correct any imbalances on the soul level.
Any financial difficulties we are witnessing either personally or globally are a means to bring into our awareness what needs to be transmuted and healed. The decline that is taking place in the economic world is a necessary part of the healing process. Those who are willing to attain wealth by harming others or polluting the Earth are doomed to failure. Such actions will not survive in a consciousness of oneness.
What We Can Do To Create a Prosperity Consciousness
In order to attain prosperity consciousness, we need to change our relationship with money. We need to eliminate our fear of money as it really has no power over us unless we allow it. It is only when we are in fear that we allow money to have control over us.
To eliminate poverty consciousness, stop worrying all of the time about not having enough money. Focus on what you have, rather than what you don’t have. Be grateful because gratitude brings more blessings. Think positively and you will feel better than when you worry or think negatively.
Every time you spend money to buy groceries, pay your bills or whatever, bless it with gratitude for the service it is providing. Then let it go willingly, knowing that money is just a source of energy and like all energy, it will go out and return to us in abundance. When we spend money grudgingly and fear we won't have enough, we automatically block the flow of God’s abundance.
Developing prosperity consciousness does not mean going out and buying unnecessary things and getting ourselves deeper in debt by spending money we don't have. It does mean, however, that we recognize money is providing a service to us that we should accept with gratitude and appreciation.
When there is not enough money, you need to look within and ask yourself “What you have been thinking, feeling, saying or believing that might be in contradiction to achieving prosperity?” “Have you been sabotaging your desires with negative, fearful thinking?” If your attitudes reflect a poverty mentality, ask yourself “What do I need to do to open myself up to God’s flow of abundance right now?”
You create your reality through your thoughts and feelings and no one is responsible for your thoughts and feelings but you. So there is no one to blame. There are no victims unless we want to be victims. It is imperative that we hold a positive vision of our future and energize this vision with daily affirmations.
Another important thing to remember is not to compare what you have with others. You can create your own prosperity and abundance regardless of what others have. You are in charge of your life. So don’t leave it up to fate. Don’t wait for good fortune to smile upon you. Don’t count on winning the lottery. Do something today to change your life! Believe in yourself that you have the power to create what you want because you do.
