MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL PREPAREDNESS FOR MONEY
PROSPERITY CONSCIOUSNESS VS POVERTY CONSCIOUSNESS
By Wisewarrior. (AKA Classroom for Investing 101 and 201)
Being financially responsible is a habit, and unfortunately one we are not taught in school, or by most parents. And habits are hard to break. So if you have been living paycheck to paycheck most of your life and you suddenly have some or a lot of money, it is unlikely your spending/saving investing habits will change without some dedicated work on yourself.
I mean an honest assessment of your attitudes toward money, spending, possessions, and of course yourself. This event will change you….and I hope for the better.
There’s a lot of excellent info in Dinar Land of do this or do that with your money, but not much on do this with your self, your mind, your emotions, your heart. So I want to help out in that arena. How am I qualified? Years ago before I took trainings for the stock market I used to have a holistic/spiritual counseling practice.
I am quite overqualified, with many certifications in many techniques of counseling and guidance, visualization, NLP, hypnotherapy, and healing. I have helped a lot of people make huge long-standing changes, and I am an ordained minister.
If we have several months to wait til we invest, this may be the perfect opportunity for you to read up on the following ideas.
If I gave you a hundred dollar bill, what would you do? Jump up and down and say OOOOH what can I buy? I’m gonna spend it all now! Use it to pay a bill, save it, or invest it? Give it away?
You need to know which kind of person you are. If you are an emotional spender, you will most likely spend all your money and stay broke the rest of your life.
If you’ve always been broke, this will create a pressure valve and an explosion. Self discipline is paramount. If you are continually struggling to pay your bills you are likely to continue that way of living even if you have what looks like a wealthy lifestyle.
Assets are things that hold or improve their value over time.
A car that you drive day to day is not an asset (unless it has been signed by Freeway Bill.) A collectible car is an asset. We hope one day again soon a house will be an asset….
And your mind/heart is an asset. It is meant to improve over time! Your mind can create bliss or suffering. It’s up to you.
I suggest you invest heavily in your greatest asset; your mind.
You must look at the foundation for money thoughts that came from your parents…for example if your dad was rich…but your mom had a poverty mentality and she married him to be taken care of; you got mixed messages.
And if your father was a mean nasty selfish wealthy guy, you may perceive people with money as mean, so you won’t want to have money because you don’t want to be mean and a bad person. How did money cycle through your family?
Did your money earner have a cyclical cash flow? Rich for a few months, broke for a few months…There are so many messages about money: power is money, “filthy rich,” spiritual people are more honorable if they are poor”…too rich for my blood” it goes on and on.
We all have unconscious attitudes toward money that will dictate what we do with money. And sometimes crazy though it seems, the unconscious urge is to get rid of your money, for example if you received a lot of “you are a failure” messages, it is quite likely that you will lose all of your money to stay consistent with being a failure.
Unfortunately these unconscious thought habits remain even after your parents die, and if you don’t re program yourself, you will repeat whatever unconscious garbage is hanging around from very early learning.
People in the field of prosperity consciousness agree that wealth actually is a spiritual endeavor. Now we all know wars have been started over religious/spiritual beliefs, so let’s not start a war here.
I believe that different people of different faiths share the same basic beliefs, but just use different words. I can’t remember if it was Ram Das or the Dali Lama who said we are simply drawing from the same ocean but using different cups.
Society is a collection of many different people, and we get along when we are tolerant and open minded and respectful of others views.
What we are really talking about is The Law of Attraction……you get what you think/believe. And this applies not only to money, but to happiness, health, relationships….everything, really.
Christians use the phrase “you reap what you sow.” People who have more eastern spiritual views or even “New Agey people” or people into Quantum Physics use phrases like money is like a vibration that responds to your thoughts and beliefs.
Same thing, you reap what you sow said differently. Footforward talks of this very same thing! He says it is your words….and it certainly is….based on your beliefs and thoughts.
So if words have power, be sure you have the kind of power you WANT! In other words, you may need to clean up your unconscious “stuff” so that you are coming from a place of self love, positivity, balance, trust…. Instead of fear, hate, anger, judgment….Because the Law Of Attraction works both ways.
For example, if you are a young woman who thinks all men are terrible, guess what? You will get terrible men in your life for as long as you hold that belief. So if you are thinking wow I don’t think I can handle all of this money, then guess what? You won’t be able to handle it.
Here is a list of must read books (some have audio along with it) that I highly recommend for you to start/deepen you on your path of being a positive attractor of good. These are the books that took me from severe poverty consciousness to prosperity consciousness.
Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind by T Harv Eker. Excellent at helping you unearth those nasty unconscious thoughts and patterns learned in childhood.
The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder. This is a very Christian book. If you are not Christian, or had a bad religious upbringing experience, omit the words you have difficulty with and substitute universe, divine authority, greater power…
The Force….whatever works for you, but please read it.
Money is My Friend by Phil Laut. Excellent combination of emotional/spiritual and practical.
Money and the Law Of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks. This may be a tad New Agey for some, but don’t let that keep you from reading/listening to it. Great CD to play in your car as you drive around!
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. A more mainstream presentation of the principles. Plus you can pop it open and read any page when you need a pick me up.
Think And Grow Rich by Napolean Hill. A classic!
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kyosaki
Deepak Chopra has an old audio Creating Affluence that is wonderful.
Pray/meditate with these ideas and watch your inner and outer results change for the better. If you are really stuck with some negative programming, consider going to a therapist that works at the unconscious level; visualization, Nero Linguistic Programming or spiritual hypnotherapy Rapid Eye Desensitization (EMDR is excellent for trauma).
After all, the negative programming was received at the unconscious level, so in my opinion, it must be addressed at the unconscious level.
You can go to talk therapy until you are blue in the face and understand why you do what you do, but still repeat the same mistakes. Also therapies that deal with the unconscious mind directly work much faster.
Peace and Love out to all, and may you all be blessed with unending abundance.
