As summer draws to a close, holidays end and we return to work, many are facing what could look like a winter of discontent – financial insecurity, political upheaval, mistrust in the institutions that are supposed to be taking care of our needs.
With such a scenario, the future could look bleak. That is until we recognize our own capacity for effecting change in our lives. We have the power. Wealth School: You Have The Power!
Do not doubt for one instant that we are living in a very wealthy world. I do not mean the material wealth held by the so-called one percent, or whatever it is. I mean the wealth that is within each one of us, in you and I, that we have available to contribute into our world. The gifts of our skills, talents, qualities and strengths.
Too many of us are in hiding out, and I include myself. Hiding out behind self-doubt, low self-esteem or a weak belief in ourselves.
Change starts from within. More and more are waking up to this truth. We can choose not to be stuck, helpless or hopeless. We can choose to move – out of despair and into a future vision of our choosing. How?
Start each day to count the little blessings in your life. They will grow. Count some more at the end of the day. By your perception, the way you see things, you open yourself to receive. Go to sleep with a mind rested and feeling full of the goodness you have received.
Make a point to take care of your basic health:
1. Eat food that is good for you, and drink plenty of water.
2. Make sure you get enough good sleep. Cut down on unnecessary stimulants during the day. Learn how to make good sleep a habit.
3. Move – walk, swim, dance, jump up and down. Get up from your computer, couch or garden bench, stretch and allow your blood to circulate.
4. Breathe. Take time out to relax, meditate or simply watch your breath.
In short: Love you. Do those things that tell you you care about you, not in the narcissistic sense, but in being responsible and accountable for your health, wealth and well-being.
Love the one you’re with. That one is you. Love you.
This morning, I re-read the Guided Visualization for Greater Wealth from Chapter 3 of The Wealth Book – Winning With Spirit You might enjoy it here.
VISUALIZATION FOR GREATER WEALTH
Begin by breathing deeply and relaxing. Drop your shoulders and begin to see a clear white light coming down over your head and swirling around you, lifting any shadows of darkness; dispelling doubts, fears, anxieties. Feel each cell in your body resonating peacefully, happily and harmoniously.
Take in a deep breath and become aware of your heart centre – listen for its steady beat and feel your life moving effortlessly through your whole body. Notice a spark of light growing within you. Feel the love that is you coming awake and resonating gently within you.
Bring to mind the first image of greater wealth that comes to you. What is it? Where are you? Are you alone, or with one or more others? As you picture the wealth, notice how you feel. Are you warmer, cooler, more serene, peaceful, or excited? Can you touch this image? What does it feel like? Is there any sound coming from it – what can you hear?
Inwardly describe what you see, feel and hear – anything you now observe. Be aware of an expansion of love as you do so – joy, enthusiasm, confidence and trusting. All is well with you, and your world. Breathe deeply into these feelings and observe as they grow to embrace all of you so that you are radiant with your own natural wealth.
Envisage now that you are being approached by a dear friend who notices your radiance and asks you: What is your vision for wealth? How may I assist you to receive it? The answer comes clearly to your mind and so you ask for what you need to assist you to achieve what you want. Your friend eagerly responds with the offer to support you in any way they can. You feel the connection of love as you receive their gifts of wisdom and guidance that will lead you forward on your adventure into greater wealth. You thank them and you embrace, receiving their warmth and reassurance.
You know that your companion for wealth is always there for you. That with each step you take, the blessing of their presence is with you, loving and assisting you. They suggest you find a tangible symbol of their presence that you can have with you as a reminder of the loving partner you have on your journey.
Bring yourself now more consciously aware of where you are. Take a few moments to make a note of the insights you received and start to look for the symbol that will be your reminder of wealth and expansion. It could be an object from nature. A small gift that you give to yourself. Let yourself be guided to receive it.
Finally, shortly to be published is a new biography about, Diana – Princess of Wales, Diana – Her Transformation. Her story might inspire your own capacity for change if you are presently meeting seemingly insurmountable challenges. The book is available from 7th September.
