Excerpt from How To Program Your Mind For Wealth
You have decided to change. You have committed to taking action. You have decided upon a financial goal. Now: in order to re-program your mind to accept higher levels of prosperity, you must discover what beliefs have limited your experience in the past, and you must consciously decide to change those beliefs.
If you do not realize it already, by the end of these thirty days it should be clear: your beliefs attract to you the life you experience. It is not your intelligence, your education, or your circumstances that have left you financially unsatisfied, but your limiting beliefs about what it means to have financial freedom.
Sound strange? Ask yourself these questions, and answer them as honestly as you can. Remember, nothing is hidden from your conscious mind; if you search, you will find your limiting beliefs.
What negative associations do you have regarding excess money? Do you feel that having money is a sign of shallowness, or that rich people are stingy or greedy? Do you feel that wealth will cause conflict in your life? Will it ruin some of your friendships? Would having too much money mean too much responsibility?
Whatever it is, you must find what has held you back from financial independence and you must, consciously, decide to change this belief. Ask yourself why you are not satisfied financially. What beliefs have held you back?
Try to get at your core belief about money. For example, a core belief for many people is “money is the root of all evil.” Around this belief develop many subsidiary beliefs that would automatically fall away if the core belief were changed. You must realize that money is not good or evil, but is a tool for expressing your creative energy in the physical world.
Realize that you are a good person who will use money for the good of many. Realize that you are evolving to a new level in your emotional, psychological, and spiritual development, and that financial abundance will allow the full expression of your evolved, more expansive personality.
Take five minutes right now and feel the truth of these words:
MY FORMER BELIEFS WERE A DELUSION CREATED BY THE LIMITED BELIEFS OF OUR SOCIETY. I NOW REALIZE THAT MONEY IS A SYMBOL OF MY CREATIVE ENERGY, AND AS MY ENERGY EVOLVES, ABUNDANCE WILL AUTOMATICALLY INFUSE MY LIFE.
TAKE ACTION: Take two minutes to write down all the limiting beliefs you can recognize that you have regarding having excess wealth. Try to discover what your overriding, “core” belief regarding money is. Change this belief into a positive, and affirm the new belief for a few minutes. For example, if your core belief is “it is difficult to make money,” simply change it to “it is easy to make money.” Repeat this statement for several minutes right now, and whenever you feel a negative thought regarding money.
“The time must come when you will satisfy a need for money by steadfastly depending on the Master Self within―and not on anything in the outer world of form.” — John Randolph Price
