Wow, where do I start? If you want to really find out if you have limiting beliefs about money and prosperity – read the last post, and especially the comments.
I’m very happy to see such a spirited discourse, but very worried about the core foundational beliefs on money some of you are exposing there.
I honestly don’t know where to begin here, there’s so much to cover. I don’t know whether to write a 27-page blog post, do 27 days of follow up posts, make it my next book, or a video on the YouTube channel! So I’ll probably do a little of all of the above.
As Shirley mentioned to me on Twitter, a lot of those comments stem from envy and jealousy of people with money. And here’s the thing…
If you are jealous or resentful of people with money and wealth, you will absolutely sabotage your success without even knowing it. Your subconscious mind will unconsciously direct you to sabotage behavior. I know, because I did that for 30 years. That’s a complex topic, so I will try and record a video on it this weekend, and post it in the week coming up.
In the meantime, let’s deal with some of the other issues raised. Bones started the debate when he said, “Because money comes FROM other people, and health does not. I understand that you believe money is inexhaustible, like kisses or health, but that just doesn’t quite square with reality. Money is something you get from other people, and health is not”
In my view this is a false premise. Or perhaps misguided. Here’s why.
Yes you receive money from other people. But there are two mitigating factor which are very important to the equation.
Number one is the fact that money is simply a meme (mind virus) created by man. (If you’re not familiar with memes, see my last book.) We like to label things to tell them apart so we call something a dollar bill and another thing a chair. But at their core level, both are simply energy vibrations made of the same matter. (Or probably more accurately, non-matter.)
So start with the premise that dollars, Euros, pounds and pesos are simply pieces of paper that governments say are worth a specified amount. In fact, those pieces of paper are worthless because they are not backed by anything but government lies and propaganda. They only have any value when we go along with the charade.
Now of course most of us choose to play the game, because it makes buying groceries, gasoline, and Nickelback albums easier. But know that the only real value of any currency is what you are willing to trade it for.
If we take Bones’ question out to its logical extension, what it’s really saying is: “You only get money when you take it from others.” Or probably more accurately: “Those evil, greedy rich people took the money by force from the noble, spiritual poor people.”
Bones said “I buy a book, and I give $10 for that - I understand that I perceive that I have traded fairly perceived value for perceived value, but my MONEY is decreased.” But here’s the real question to ask…
Did your prosperity decrease?
If you spent $10 for a book such “As a Man Thinketh” “The 7 Habit of Highly Effective People” or “the Science of Mind,” I would submit that your prosperity increased greatly. Now not everyone makes good choices when they trade money. But that is a result of their consciousness and where they're at.
It is simply shocking how many people on a subconscious level believe that the only way to become wealthy is to rape, pillage and plunder. But that is completely false, which leads us to the second thing. Yes you can certainly get money by ripping people off. That’s a short-term situation. But to live a life of true prosperity, you have to operate by the principles of exchanging value for value.
So what do YOU believe at your core level? Is there a belief in your subconscious mind that people who have more than you cheated the system to get it? Do you feel like people have to sell their soul to become wealthy?
If you have either of those beliefs in your subconscious mind, it will certainly sabotage any efforts you make on the conscious realm to become wealthy. So give that some serious thought and please share what you come up with below. Next post we’ll pick up on some of the other issues raised in the comments.
