We all talk about abundance, we use the term abundance as if it is more acceptable than the word money or even wealth, why is that? Is is because we don’t want to be accused of being ‘money hungry’ for the ‘ filthy lucre’ and ‘materialistic’ rather than spiritual?
I have been a long term lover of Stuart Wilde and even though these days he has gone into seclusion, I have many of his books, he ‘get’s it’ one of the quotes I love from him is a simple one with far reaching depth to it, “When it rains – do rain.” Think about it…
Back to this idea of abundance. My Dad has a fear, a dreadful ingrained fear of spending money, he has done little in his life to get more he is just afraid of spending what he has. He is even affected physically when his children spend money, he becomes angry and upset and even goes pale. This is the environment in which I was brought up. “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” “money is hard to come by,” “we can’t afford that,” we even had to eat strange things so that we didn’t spend too much of his money on food, and one argument I remember well was one when my father became irrationally angry over a new pair of shoes bought for me as my feet had grown out of my old ones.
Ask yourself right now, what were you taught about money in your home?
Stuart says of this: “The way we teach our children disengages them from money. It discourages them from heaving wealth because we condition them that it is wrong to be wealthy. Ouir language is make up of hundreds of proverbs that illustrate this conditioning, for example: ‘the meek shall inherit the earth,’ but of course, that is not true. The universe is neutral… If you are doing well financially then your wealth will hlep others because you will be contributing to the community, spending money and hiring people. You know you are actually helping the world be becoming more powerful.“
But and this is a BIG BUT – is it really more spiritual to be poor? or is money really ‘hard to come by?’
[important]“You only have to look at nature, you can look at cherry tree or an apricot tree and it has more apricots on there than you can ever eat, it has more cherries on it than you can eat. And when you look at it, it has that splendid abundance naturally. If a man designed an apricot tree, it would have two iddy biddy apricots at the top of the tree and they would be out of reach and a little stale. You would have to get permission to climb it and a certificate for when you got it and then a third of the apricot would belong to somebody else and eventually you would wind up with just the pith and a little bit of the apricot. And that is just how the system is designed.” Stuart Wilde[/important]
In fact the universe is an abundant and creative force and the one thing you can learn from science is that the universe is energy and that energy can neither be created or destroyed. Abundance is rife throughout the whole universe, there is plenty of everything to go round and that includes money. Money is just energy, it is an energy exchange (one of the processes that is continual through out the universe as things and stuff are forever and infinitely created and destroyed and one kind of matter is exchanged for another).
When you realise this you also recognise that money is just a part of that continual and infinite process, it is a flow, you exchange what you have for some money and then exchange that for something else and everyone wins. This is natural.
Did you know that if all the wealth in the world was divided up evenly between every man, woman and child that everyone would not only have ‘enough’ they would, each one of them be rich? It is the system that keeps some poor and some richer than they need to be. This means of course that you have to decide right here and now, to step out of that system.
That takes a change of energy, a stepping up and out will be required. You will have to transend your conditioning and step up into the enrgy of someone who is not only self confident, but self empowered enough to have the energy of a wealthy, abundant person long before it is manifest in your life.
When you are wealthy or even think like a wealthy person you are more confident; the easy way to do this is to raise your energy to the vibration of what it will be when you are wealthy. Stuie says that when you do this amazing thing happen: “when you do that people will be pulled to you. People will show up. They are going to crawl over walls and under the doors, they are going to lower themselves in through the ceiling. They will be there. And when tye show up, what you have to do is bill them. You have to have a way of billing these people so you can basically make money and that means being organised, having a product or service, or something that you give to these people when they show up in your life.”
It also means that your friends need to be people who understand this too as we are the sum product of the 10 people we spend the most time with. What I love about all this is that Marianne Williamson was right, “…And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
What a wonderfully abundant thought!!
