Money is Wonderful! How many times have you heard this expression? Mostly, we have heard sayings quite to the contrary, like: “You have to work hard for your money.”, Money don’t grow on trees.”, “Money is the root of all evil.” etc. You can add your own expressions to the list.
Well, if you are not experiencing ‘money as wonderful and abundant’, then you probably have some of these limiting beliefs hidden in your subconscious mind. Most of them we absorbed as children and they are constantly being reinforced in our everyday lives through comments from family, friends, and the media.
Money is a necessity for living today. We can’t leave home without it. Money is a convenient form of exchange for goods and services. Most of us work for money to be able to do and buy the things we need and want. There is nothing wrong with working unless you are very unhappy with the work you are doing. That’s when there’s a problem because we really can’t really enjoy the money we have earned if we have had to struggle to get it.
In Treat Yourself to Life , Raymond Charles Barker asks two questions, “What is the one thing you have always wanted to do?” and “Why are you not doing what you want to do?”
Knowing whatever ‘that thing’ is, if it is life affirming for yourself and others, then it is Spirit or God letting you know that it is yours to do. Most of us, however, have many reasons and excuses as to why we are not living the life we desire. These thoughts reflect our limiting beliefs which keep us in a limited expression of life. I am not condemning you or your life. I just want you to know that there is a better way to live, if you so desire.
Since all of our experiences are the results of the beliefs that we house in our subconscious mind, the only way to have a better life is to evict these limiting beliefs from our thinking by replacing them with those beliefs or thoughts which will produce the more abundant, prosperous life that we want to live.
We can do this through Spiritual Mind Treatment as designed by Ernest Holmes, the founder of Religious Science and Centers for Spiritual Living. We can use the science of mind, universal laws, and spiritual principles to change our limiting thoughts and beliefs into more expansive ones that will in turn produce the life we want to live.
It won’t happen overnight because like house renovation, it doesn’t happen overnight. But with consistent practice and patience, you will find your life taking on more ease and better experiences.
Use the following Spiritual Mind Treatment as a good start.
“I always have an abundance of money and an abundance of whatever it takes to make my life happy and prosperous. There is always a continuous flow towards me of supply, of money, of all that I need to express the fullness of life, happiness and success.” Ernest Holmes (adapted)
As you do this, your limiting beliefs, as thoughts, will surface as denials of these new thoughts you are now telling yourself. Say to these negating thoughts, to yourself, to your own mind: “That is not the Truth of Life, therefore this is not the truth of me. Be gone from my mind. This is your eviction notice.” And watch as more ease and seeming miracles begin to happen.
I invite you to keep a Gratitude Journal to keep track of the better changes that are happening in your life, even the little ones. Over time, you will be amazed at the ease and differences for the better in your life experiences.
BTW: Only share this with supportive people. Negative people will slow your progress.
