Moneymaking is not a serious business; it's a game. At first it may seem that it's a
that you play with forces outside yourself - the economies of the marketplace, so to speak.
But as you proceed, you discover that it's actually a game you play with yourself!
Many people resent money because they feel life hasn't been fair to them, that they've
worked hard and haven't received as much as they should have - or that they are paid less
than other people with inferior qualities to them. However, harboring these negative emotions
only widens the gap between yourself and money.
Life was never meant to be a struggle, just a gentle progression from one point to another,
much like walking through a valley on a sunny day.
To make money, you have to deliver your energy in some form, to satisfy a demand that is
out there. And if what you are selling is energy, charisma, and enthusiasm, there is no
competition because most others are selling things that are lifeless, loveless, and dull.
It's hard to align to money if you think it is evil and nasty. But once you come to an
understanding that money is neutral, that abundance is natural and spiritual, it's easy to see
that having money does not necessarily deprive somebody else. Many of the great teachers
have given credence to the idea that abundance is spiritual and that it is your feelings and
the power of your thoughts that create abundance for you.
You have a divine right to abundance, and if you are anything less than a millionaire, you
haven't had your fair share.
The key to success is to raise your own energy; when you do, people will naturally be
attracted to you. And when they show up, bill 'em!
Our life's journey of self-discovery is not a straight-line rise from one level of consciousness
to another. Instead, it is a series of steep climbs and flat plateaus, then further climbs. Even
though we all approach the journey from different directions, certain of the journey's
characteristics are common to all of us.
Instead of praying quietly, pray out loud, stating each desire as fact. Remember, "A great
price is about to come into my life." "A very profitable opportunity is on its way to me." "A
large sum is dropping into my lap effortlessly," and so on. Invoke, invoke, you'll never be broke.
We have been programmed by the system to believe that there are shortages and lack, and
that uncertainty is normal. It is not. That idea is a psychological racket, designed to control
people and keep them in line by making them fearful. Don't buy it.
Most people spend all their time getting in their own way. We all have days when things
suddenly go brilliantly because suddenly we sort of step away from ourselves. But the human
personality and the ego which dwells within it has a way of limiting one through fear, through,
let's say, fear of criticism.
The difference between the tramp and the millionaire is an almost imperceptible shift in
consciousness and vitality. You too can make an upward shift simply and easily. You can learn
to be more open, and place yourself in the flow while learning the subtle laws of money and
abundance, so that life's opportunities come to you more naturally. It's all part of your spiritual
If you deny yourself access to the child within because you're too serious, you also block your
connection to the divine Light and your feminine self. Every creator who's any good uses their
feminine side to create with. Whether a scientist working on a hunch, a painter working on
the interplay of colors, or a musician dealing with the juxtaposition of notes and chords.
The inability to align to money and abundance is not a misfortune. Nor is it necessarily bad
luck, or a sad karma you've been shouldered with. More often than not, a lack of money is the
result of errors in the finetuning of the buttons and knobs that make up the real you and your
You can never reconcile your life unless you rediscover that inner child and learn to keep it
happy. Go to a toy store and buy yourself some games, play in the rain, roll in the mud, or
whack your face into a cream pie.
Start by reminding yourself that there's loads and loads of money around. Perhaps it sounds a
bit silly, but you ought to begin every day by telling yourself that there is no shortage of
money. In fact, there are untold trillions of dollars, yen, pounds, D-marks, and so on swishing
about - more than you could ever spend.
It is pointless to get your knickers in a twist if a certain person fails to react the way you
want. It is best to avoid people and situations that you know drive you crazy. Remember to
vote with your feet. If a situation is untenable or unchangeable, walk away.
Accepting responsibility is an uncomfortable thing, for within that idea is the birth of the true
individual. It's the only solution to our societies' problems. Expecting someone else to fix our
lives is silly; in the end we need six billion individual fixes.
The rich get richer. Not only because they have surpluses with which to invest, but because
of the overriding emotional release they experience from having wealth.
Using the power of the light within you, you are able to pull energy from the Universal Mind. It
will give you a transcendent view that you can use for any endeavor you choose. Many great
people in history have understood the simplicity of this power and used it to exhibit genius.
It's not just the emotional, intellectual, and physical gaps between you and money. The real
gap is always between what you think you want and what you actually want, deep down.
Do something for yourself every day, something compassionate and kind. I don't mean buying
yourself breakfast; I mean doing something that is spiritually or physically nurturing: a
massage, a fast, a meditation, exercise, rest, play - that kind of thing. For it's in the quite
time that you'll see the great abundance of this life, and you'll move from the ego's disquiet to
the spirit's wholeness, and you'll see that the things you worry about are often not worth the
All mankind's inner feelings eventually manifest themselves as an outer reality.
Some people are run by the legislation of the ego and the personality rather than run by the
softness and the feeling and the sacredness of their inner feeling. If you want to empower
your life, the first thing you've got to do is discipline yourself and discipline your mind.
