“A large sum of cash has just dropped into my lap.”
Do you believe in the power of the subconscious mind? If so, do you ever use affirmations to send conscious messages to that part of your mind?
If your answer is “Yes” then you’ll probably already be repeatedly saying or writing out something like the opening line above the picture of one thousand dollars in warm, soft cash. Here it is again:
“A large sum of cash has just dropped into my lap.”
If you are doing abundance affirmations maybe you’re already seeing results too? Maybe more money than you’ve previously attracted is now starting to show up in your life?
“More money than ever before is now showing up in my life.”
If, on the other hand, you don’t believe in the manifestation powers of your own mind and believe instead that some external force is responsible for your current situation maybe you would like to read a couple of books I’ve had the good fortune to stumble upon (even before StumbleUpon came along) and one I’ve only recently discovered.
They just might change your mind.
But before I tell you about those three great books I’d like to share a bit about me and money. I must first tell you I am only a student of money manifestation. While I have managed to manifest small and large sums ($200,000 in one pop my biggest expected unexpected pay-day to date) I’m still learning about the mind n’ money connection.
And maybe I will always be learning about how reality starts in the brain, deep inside, deep down; some place where imagination begins.
Now, before you worry this is a Disney sponsored post about how all your dreams can come true—don’t. While I do believe in the unlimited capacity of man to create I have also experienced first hand what limitation and limited thought manifests. Namely: not much fun.
But I have experienced some cool stuff too. And when I look back on all the good things that have ‘happened’ ‘to me’ (sorry, couldn’t resist bringing attention to the erroneous idea of humans as only passive receivers of life—instead of the transmitters or instigators of it all) I realize everything good started with a thought.
When I couldn’t yet play guitar and dreamt of doing so (and long before I could get my hands around a G-chord or my mind around a blues pentatonic scale) I IMAGINED myself on stage and performing to an appreciative audience.
Then one day my imagination came true.
When in high school I first had the idea it would be fun to be an actor on stage and screen, and long before I had the training or experience needed to get the big TV and theatre gigs, I began VISUALIZING myself performing and travelling the world.
Then one day my visualization became real.
And when my writing career evolved beyond writing songs and plays to include becoming a novelist I again tuned into the power of creating a picture of what my finished book would look like and how it would appear sitting on the shelf in the Number One Best-seller position to make that happen.
And for one day I did make it happen. My novel was the best-seller in one store for one day!
And it’s still selling…
But of course whether or not you consider my modest worldly success as ‘Success’ —with a big ’S’—depends on who you compare me (and—by default—yourself!) to. I agree there are many much more successful actors, singer-songwriters and novelists than myself but there are also many would-be actors, would-be singer-songwriters and would-be novelists who never got close to achieving their dreams.
At least some of my dreams have come true. Not all—not yet, but some. I guess I am somewhere in the middle. But I am ready to aim even higher now and get more focussed than ever before on manifesting my dream life.
As such I am once again returning to the most basic creative block of all: thought. And in thinking about my thoughts I have been helped by many wonderful books by authors living and dead. As I work on money manifestation I keep reading and practicing. That’s why I bought my second copy of Stuart Wilde’s great ‘money’ book, The Little Money Bible; it’s why I have highlighted many passages from The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles and it’s why I am currently reading Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
What I have learned so far is while each of these inspirational texts approaches wealth creation from slightly different angles they all share a basic philosophy which might be summed up thus:
Money is good. You deserve to have as much money as you are comfortable receiving but exactly how much you make depends on your willingness and ability to concentrate on GIVING to the world by doing something which you can put your whole heart into. Furthermore it is vital to guard against negative thoughts which only confuse your subconscious mind: visualize what you want, write out what you want, then GIVE MORE of yourself than you ever have before in attracting what you want.
I think so. But I’m still reading. And I’m still learning; still affirming abundance is natural.
Stay tuned for an upcoming post where I’ll ‘give away’ ONE MILLION DOLLARS to everyone—and anyone—who wants it. Until then here are links to three great books on wealth creation:
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles
The Little Money Bible by Stuart Wilde
Have a lovely day!
