So many times when I see mindset teachings, they are talking about money. Interestingly enough, in the MKE I have learned to see beyond the money into the place where I have and I AM what the “money” would have “afforded” me anyways!
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, harmonious and happy.
Everything I always wanted or could ever want I DO have now and as I grow I will continue to have them in many different forms (such as a great family, a romance, spiritual growth and learning, opportunities to be generous and helpful, close friends, a nice home, a nice car, a scenic place to live, nice weather, travel and adventure opportunity) and then most importantly, I will always “have” the way those things make me FEEL and THINK! Part 23 says:
“… man is not a body with a spirit, but a spirit with a body,
and that it is for this reason that his desires are incapable of any permanent satisfaction in anything not spiritual. Money is therefore of no value except to bring about the conditions which we desire, and these conditions are necessarily harmonious. Harmonious conditions necessitate sufficient supply so
that if there appears to be any lack, we should realize that the idea or soul of money is service, and as this thought takes form, channels of supply will be opened, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that spiritual methods are entirely practical.”
I am bringing so many cool syncronicities in my life lately and it makes it feel like magic! It’s to the point now that even if something doesn’t work out the way that I kinda wanted it to or might have predicted it would, I just know that somsthing better is coming along! How cool is that!
I love what part 23 teaches about money but I really love how it says in the beginning that:
“…money weaves itself into the
entire fabric of our very existence; that the law of success is service; that we get what we give, and for
this reason we should consider it a great privilege to be able to give.
We have found that thought is the creative activity behind every constructive enterprise. We can, therefore, give nothing of more practical value than our thought.”
That really corrected some of my thinking for me in a huge way! I can now see giving thought, positive thought about anything, really, but especially specifically focused on a person or specific situation can be so very generous! It’s like when you’re in deep prayer or gratitude, or being in love, or being totally focused on your kids.
All of those thoughts are giving of my energy and even time, in a way.
This teaching has given my prayer life that extra boost by adding more visualizations, making my petitions to God vivid and using my imagination! It’s very cool and I can think of that as a service now when before, I never would have seen it that way!
