The number one topic on everybody's mind today. You cannot turn on the television or
open a paper or even turn on your computer without seeing or hearing something about
money. Everyone in the street is thinking about it. Every coffee shop is filled with
murmured conversations about it. It's everywhere!
What is it? What is money? We used to know. We used to get a few pieces of paper
with denominations on them that let us know exactly how much money we had and we
used to go shopping with our money in hand and pass it over to the clerk when she
said, "That'll be $47.98 all together." (I used to reply, "How much is it separately?" I
got a lot of confused looks for that one.)
When I was a child, my siblings and I got $0.25 a week for an allowance. At the end of
the month we would take a family walk to the bank and deposit our $1.00 each. My
Grandmother was a penny pincher and made sure that we spent no money on anything
at any time so that we would have a wonderful nest egg by the time we were adults. My
nest was vacated a mere 18 months after it was initiated. I blew all $18.00 in one day.
It felt great.
Okay, but what about today? It is rare to even see an actual bill today. Most of our
money is handled behind the scenes in electronic blips and blinks. (Those are technical
terms). Our paychecks are deposited automatically, our bills are paid online and we
rarely get to hold actual money and say, "I have $X.00." We now "log on" and punch in
a few secret numbers and watch the screen open to our bank account telling us the
activity which has gone on in our absence. The bank book is soon becoming a thing of
the past: A relic for the history museums.
There is also more money today than there has ever been before. There are trillions of
dollars in the world. Trillions. I remember when trillion was a made up word. Now we
are actually counting up to a trillion dollars.
So what is money, actually? We, as humans, have decided to put a value on
everything in our physical experience. As a result we had to find something that would
represent the value of each thing. We decided to find one thing that would represent the
value of every other thing. We had to make this thing up, of course, because there
wasn't really any one thing of the things we already had that seemed to be good enough
to value all our other things on. Confusing, I know.
Originally we thought things of value were stuff like spices, that made food and
perfumes smell great. That made a lot of sense. People travelled far and wide to trade
in spices, cloths and fragrances. Armies were built on bags of salt and pepper.
After a while we discovered shiny metals. These soon took the place of spices and
became the object of trade. Silver and gold were shaped into disks and decorated with
the faces of leaders. We liked them a lot.
Someone got the great idea to compile a lot of disks and make a piece of paper, with
the same face on it, that represented the value of so many disks. This made sense
because someone with a lot of money used to have to carry a lot of disks, or coins, and
it wreaked the look of their pants, with those sagging pockets. And women could now
carry their wealth in their braziers. (They weren't called bras until the 1960s.)
The invention and commercialization of computers and the Internet took money to a
whole new dimension. People all over the world could now exchange things for
money, or other things. They could exchange different values of money for each other.
Money, now was exchanged electronically, and the line ups at the bank were much
We use plastic cards to represent our money now. And we don't even have to have the
money to back up the card. We can promise to give the owner of the card money when
we get some, and in exchange for getting to use the card now, we will give them some
extra money later. Amazing. My home, right now, is full of things that were purchased
with a card and a promise.
What if I told you that the only real thing that makes money for you is your belief
system? What if I told you that you have the ability to receive as much money as you
have ever wanted? Everything in the world that you have ever dreamed about can be
yours. Don't hang up yet. Read a few more paragraphs. You made it this far, you
might as well get the punch line.
I am not trying to sell you my latest gizmo that will change your life. Okay, maybe a
little, but really what I am trying to "sell" you is a new way of thinking.
Money is a construct. We made it up. It was not a real thing before we came and
created it. We each have dominion over it. There were frogs and plants and water
before we got here. There was no money. I promise you.
Humans came and decided we needed a base evaluation for exchange. Enter money.
Now a lot of us decided that there were some who were worthy of money and some
who were not. Ridiculous. Have you seen any of those movies on what the world is
like after the Apocalypse? Money is useless. All of a sudden the guys with all the
money are just like everyone else. We go back to exchanging food and clothing. But
right now we do use money. And we use it a lot.
Okay, here is the kicker. Everything in our lives is made up of energy. Vibrational
energy. Everything. Living or not.
There is an old saying that goes "Like begets like." That means that things that are like
each other are drawn to each other. Another saying is "Water seeks its own level."
This means the same thing. These sayings have been around for thousands of years.
There is also a saying that goes "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer." In
Biblical terms it goes "To he that hath it shall be given and to he that hath not it shall be
taken." All these sayings have the same meaning.
If you think about something so much that it causes feelings inside you, you create that
thing. The longer you think about a thing and the more energy you give it the more you
attract that thing or situation.
The rich get richer because they are thinking about being rich and attracting more
wealth to themselves. The poor get poorer because they are asking for more poverty
and hardship by way of their thoughts and feelings.
As an experiment try this: Think of an obscure item that you wouldn't expect to see in
your ordinary life. A friend of mine thought about a pink marble. Pick any thing that
you wouldn't find in your day to day life and create a picture of it in your mind. See the
object in all its detail. Imagine holding it or smelling it or touching it or just seeing it. Put
yourself in the picture. Visualize it. Create some emotion around it. How do you feel?
Spend some time, maybe 5 minutes once or twice a day, with the vivid picture in your
In a few short days you will see the actual thing in your life. It will show up. This is how
our lives are created. Without knowing, usually, we do this on autopilot and usually by
default. We create the events and situations in our lives, all day every day.
If you can do this with an object like a pink marble, blue feather or an elephant or
whatever your object was, you can do it with money. Plain and simple. The process is
exactly the same.
Start small. Think of a small amount of money that you would like to attract in the next
few days. Say $5.00. Think about it. See it. Feel it in your hands. Smell it. How do you
feel now that you have $5.00 that you were not expecting? Happy? Giddy? Find a
positive feeling to associate with receiving $5.00. Spend a couple of days on this and
the money will come.
After you have received your $5.00 try it again with $10.00. It is exactly the same
process. Don't think that because it is a larger amount of money that you have to "try"
harder. Usually trying harder defeats the purpose. It is important to remember that the
feelings around having this new money have to be Good feelings. If you think about how
much you Need the money and how Upset you are that you don't have it then you won't
get it. All you will get is more needing and upset.
"Like begets like." Remember that. Write it down and put it on your fridge or mirror.
Once you see that this works for even $10.00, you can continue to increase the
amounts of money as you like. Go for $50.00 next. Do not go for an amount that you
don't yet feel up to. If you try to manifest $1,000.00 and you are not feeling like you
deserve it or you feel that this is a fluke, you will not get your desire. You will only
prove to yourself that this does not work. "See I told you." This will bring about more
disappointment and lack.
"The Rich get Richer." Start to create a world in your mind that is the world of your
dreams. Feel what it is like to be rich. Feel the money in your hands. See it in your
bank account. A trick I use is to print off large bills off the computer. I have $20, $50
and $100 bills lying all over my house in piles. When I see them out of the corner of my
eye I think for a second, "Oh, look there's a pile of money" It really works. (Do not print
off money and try to pass it off in the store as real money. That is not what this is about.
You will go to jail.)
I also take a credit card statement and white out the amount owing and put $0.00 and in
the available credit I put the max of the card, say $5,000.00. I hang that above my
desk and when I see it, for a split second I think, "Oh yeah all my credit cards are paid in
full and I have all that money available on credit."
Remember the feeling of the thing you are trying to attract is what matters. If you want
to feel rich then feel happy and satisfied and joyous and you will attract situations that
will create more of those feelings. Pretend.
Most of us live from the outside-in. We think our lives are reflections of our world. It is
actually the other way around. Our world is created by a reflection of what we are
thinking and feeling.
If you are thinking thoughts of poverty and injustice then you will experience poverty and
injustice. If you are thinking thoughts of wealth and joy you will experience wealth and
You don't have to take my word for it. Try it. Start small. Then try something a little
bigger and so on until you are living the life you deserve, the life of your dreams.
I wish you the best of success in all you do. Find joy in one thing today and watch it
