MANIFESTING MONEY – ON LINE LESSONS – An Introduction

Come and join me for the next 10 days online. I will be posting a lesson a day about deliberate manifestation.. starting this afternoon at 14.00pm.
INTRODUCTION
This is the first in a series of posts about manifestation, deliberate manifestation. We are all manifesting all the time. We cannot avoid that. Who we are, our beliefs and patterns, but most importantly our feelings, conscious/unconscious, are acting as a mould which directs the life force to create circumstances and situations in our lives.

Deliberate manifestation moves that process from an unconscious to a conscious one, and that is an exciting development – one that our Soul has been waiting for. When we put ourselves in the driver seat in this way, we set about learning the very things that our Soul is interested in – how we can work on the inner to raise our consciousness – and impact the world around us.
Soul is about manifesting life deliberately, and there is nowhere more potent forum for this than the arena of money.

Far from being the root of all evil, money and the making of it, is the root of all learning when done with Soul principles in mind. When guided by your Soul, finding money becomes a sacred journey  that raises your consciousness. So to set this truth up in your beingness and prepare you to go to a new money level, lesson one on our manifesting money is to write out these affirmations about money, and put it up on your wall:
The pursuit of money is a good thing. My Soul guides me in this.
Getting and keeping money raises my consciousness.
I deserve, and have the ability to earn money, mega money, fast.
Look at these affirmations, and say them out loud as often as you can, but at least 5 times in the morning on waking, and five times at night before sleeping. This ensures you set up your day in the right way, and get your subconscious to keep processing your money stuff at night. Words stated out loud are potent because they override your subconscious programming, and also influence the particles around you. Just trust as you make these statements that you are unleashing some magic in your world – and you will!
In the next few day’s I’ll be looking at the principle of Oneness and its role in deliberate manifestation, and also the importance of owning your sh*te.

MANIFESTING MONEY – FINAL LESSON

As we bring this series to a close taking yourself through a completion is important. Doing this will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, clarity on what you’ve got out of the course and what you need to do next.

How to do that:

1. Write down your intentions/goals set at the beginning. Assess your progress, noticing the feelings that arise. Yes or No? How stuck/how free?
2. Rate how committed you were to the goal and the process – without judgement. Low commitment = resistance to money.
3. Browse all the lessons then write a short list of your key insights – and list another of the manifesting tools you learned
4. Highlight those that worked well for you, and mark those which you will continue using as part of your daily practise. Commit to them.
5. Decide to teach these to someone in your life when the opportunity arises (we teach what we most need to learn)
6. State your next steps and develop an intention ( which might be a continuing of the old one).
7. Close your eyes and give thanks to the group and the learning, send light to our little community and then release it with love.

Thanks for joining me in a wonderful journey of manifesting and sharing. May your next steps be filled with new awareness, a deep connection with your Soul and a powerful sense that your life is guided and held.

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 9: Practical tips

Money does grow on trees!
All too often we spend our time thinking about money. That creates problems. Your relationship with money goes beyond thought patterns and beliefs, it’s a cellular affair too. Including simple daily activities is incredibly helpful to shifting stuck and unhelpful cellular memories and feelings about money for the better.
EXERCISE 1
For those of you participating in the on-line manifesting course, do an audit on what new practices you have learned during the course – and how you are, or are not, implementing them. An essential part of the course is to assess how you are doing relative to your goals. This will help pinpoint areas that still need more energy from you, but equally importantly give you a chance to appreciate your progress.  Such appreciation is the fuel of motivation and enthusiasm.

So, for instance, list all the tools you have learned from my lessons and how you are applying them (or not), what personal insights you’ve had about your relationship to money and what you’ve done with that information (or not), how well you are interacting and sharing with others on the course, using the blog as the communication platform (or not), rate your degree of commitment to the goal from 1 to 10 – and so on.  So please go through this exercise and post up your findings here.

EXERCISE 2

        Start an abundance box or jar. This is a wonderful amazing way to put abundance consciousness into your being. It’s inspired by the Ananda Assisi, a centre near Assisi for the teaching of Paramahansa Yogananda.

Find a bottle, a plastic container or a lovely decorated bag or box. Every day put in an amount of money that you consider negligible, 5 cents for example. This ensures you do the exercise without fear. As you put the money in the box, close your eyes and say ‘Teach me to feel that Thou are the power behind all wealth and the value within all things. Finding thee first I will find all things in Thee. Help me to manifest material and spiritual abundance through the realisation of the Oneness of all things and the universal source of supply.

Also create a separate compartment in the abundance box. I call this my giving compartment into which I sometimes add a small amount to that saying ‘Teach me to give appropriately.’ I have an urge to give away money and this is helping me give from a sacred space not a conditioned  one.

3.   EXERCISE 3
        Symbolically uplift your handling of money. This provides a critical change point in your subliminal relationship with money.People with money issues have an entangled and ambivalent relationship with money.
  1. Tidy up your purse. Scrappy credit card slips stuffed randomly into your purse show disrespect, repelling money.
  2. Whenever you give or receive money, take a moment to mindfully put it in your wallet, blessing it irrespective of how much it is.
  3. When I receive cash I put it in the centre of a nice brass tray, and then lay a rose quartz crystal on top of it. Everytime I see that crisp R100 note adorned with a beautiful crystal something in me leaps in an uplifting and positive way. I rather fancy that this is healing many years of secretly believing that money is the root of all evil.
4.    EXERCISE 4
         Start doing an active blessing on your food. Since manifesting money is a heart affair, and your heart is more than likely closed to money, this practise will teach you to open your heart at will. Hold your hands over your food, close your eyes, get the picture of the plant or animal from where the food came and then bless it with all your being. Then bless the over lighting intelligence that guides that plant or animal form, giving deep thanks that this intelligence exists on the earth. Then think of the whole system of mother nature and fully appreciate the wisdom that created the earth. If I’m eating fish for example, I think about the oceans and the sun, and give thanks for them too. By this time my heart is wide open. I then gives thanks to all the people involved. If I have the luxury of eating organic, I thank that farmer for choosing to work with mother nature.  I then thank everyone involved in getting the food from the farm onto the supermarket shelves, trucks, trains, shelf packers – the lot! This process, repeated over and over unexpectedly taught me to open my heart at will, and that’s a useful skill when it comes to money!
        Later in the course you will use it to attract money, but for now, don’t entangle money stuff with heart stuff. Just learn to open your heart to magnificence of food, nourishment and eating.

You now have 4 very practical ways to build a fabulous relationship with money. Including these practises in your life helps you feel divinely favoured and in tune with all of life. When that happens, all of life will suddenly expand to include the money that comes from trees, the silver and gold that come from deep earth. And then you’ll be on your way to mega money. Yay!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 8: Terrified you can’t pay your bills?

 

Our manifestation project is working brilliantly!  I know this because many have been reporting a full on experience of the inner barriers that lie between them and their money goals. What is this full on experience?  Fear, worry and lack! now what’s the best approach to that fear?
Yes, these moments are scary and downright confusing at a logical level. But at a Soul level they makes complete sense since we have invoked healing of your relationship to money, mega money, and so everything that needs to be healed has come up and shown you its face. The worst thing you can do is try to fix it, stop it or resist in anyway. Rather hold your mega money intention firmly in your mind, and encourage your scared-self to breath deep, stand fully in the present moment, and feel every single tinge of angst. Anything (fear included) fully experienced turns to bliss. This process of unpacking your feelings about money is essential to becoming attractive to mega money.
So that you really get where I’m coming from on this relationship with money  idea let me explain it in another way. I have two friends who cycle to work. One has a car and a bicycle, and chooses to cycle to work because it’s healthy, fun and environmentally friendly. The other has no car and cycles to work because that is his primary mode of transport. Both have bikes, both cycle to work.
From the outside the facts are the same. But in truth the situations are very different. Why? Because their relationship with their bike is completely different. To the one with the car, the bike is a ‘nice to have’, to the other it is a ‘ have to have’. If the bike got stolen from the one who has a car the theft would be inconvenient, but not major. However if the bike got stolen from the one who used his bike to get everywhere, it dramatically affects their way of life. From this we see how the facts and situation do not create our experience of life, rather how our relationship to the facts is responsible for our experience of life.
Your relationships are deeply influenced by your beliefs, patterns needs, wants, personality and life situation. Your relationship with your feelings about money is also defined by these things. For instance if you need to be have lots of money in your life feel ok about yourself, experiencing lack will be an intense and loaded  experience that you are likely to resist. To another personality who doesn’t have money as a source of validation, not having money wouldn’t have such a strong negative charge.
So to get ourselves in touch with and working in harmony with the power of our feelings about money, we need to develop an understanding of our relationship to our them. For this, it’s essential that you give yourself permission to feel them. To help you do this in a supported way, here’s a fabulous new tool, the karate chop technique. It is from EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) www.eftuniverse.com 
The karate chop
It’s done with the hands. That’s the beauty of it – it by-passes your mind and the rubbish it can tell you about yourself and money. With the karate chop you tap on energy pathways that lead to limiting feelings, bringing about the release of negative emotional states. This technique is brilliant to heal deep seated and even unconscious fears about money, having it – or the lack of it.
1. Tap the top of one hand with the finger tips of the other, starting by tapping the top part of the thumb as shown in the picture. You will state the difficult feeling experience as you do this always beginning with these words ‘ even though
 2. Continue to describe the negative feeling situation as you continue tapping over the top of the hand towards the baby finger.
 3. Once you have tapped your way to the end of your hand complete the exercise with a karate chop movement as shown in the picture, chopping the same point in each hand at the fleshy edge together several times as you say these words  ‘…. I deeply love and accept myself’.
  So let’s apply this fabulously releasing technique to a money scenario. Let’s say your income has dropped off to levels where you can’t pay your bills.  In this situation, the sentence you will speak as you tap and chop will be something like this:
‘Even though I am so scared that I have no money. A part of me feels like I’m going to die. I feel like lying down and giving up. I think about what I’m going to say to my landlord and I freeze. And then I remember I don’t have money for petrol and I feel sick.  I deeply love and accept myself.’
The combining of the sentence with the tapping sequence will be something like this:
‘Even though I am so scared that I have no money
A part of me feels like I’m going to die
 
I think about what I’m going to say to my landlord and I freeze
 
I feel like lying down and giving up.
And then I remember I don’t have money for petrol and I feel sick
[KARATE CHOP] I deeply love and accept myself.
Congratulations! You have just learned a life changing technique. Tap this out in sequences of three. This helps you discover more layers. And do the karate chop as often as you can – whenever you feel any money niggle arise – the more you do it, the more you release. Even better do it on the hour every hour as well. As you set out to do this consider these wise words of Lao Tzu:  ‘all difficult things have their origin in that which is easy and great things in that which is small’.  Each time you acknowledge your feeling about money and work with it in this small way, you’re putting your feet onto the path to mega money!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 7: Working too Hard can Block Success

Working to manifest your goals the Soul way asks you to drop some old behaviour patterns, ie. The less money you have, the harder you work. Look around you and you will know hard work is not a guarantee of more money, yet most of us go into jive bunny mode when the bucks are not flowing into the bank as we would want.

To manifest money effectively you’ll have to become friends with idea that right action comes from the flow of life. It’s core concept of my book Ride the River (it is useful to get a copy).
Here’s an excerpt that introduces this concept:
Without conscious awareness, pushing the river is the default model in today’s world. Everyone is pushing simply because society has conditioned us this way. From the time we were young we were told ‘work hard, play hard’ – the harder you work, the better the results – and you MUST get results! We are commanded to get results at school, and in sport, even our spiritual lives are results-driven. In our current model results define you; they make a statement of who you are. Without good results is your life worthwhile?
There’s a very subtle yet powerful difference between pushing the river and riding it, so subtle that perhaps a real life example of the two would best explain the difference. A friend of mine is dating a lady who is an interior decorator. One day she overheard her boss stressing about a particularly big deal which he had won to redecorate a chain of guest houses. Having struck the deal he found that the fabric selected for the furniture was out of stock and completely unavailable anywhere. This obviously delayed promised delivery times, putting the order in jeopardy. The last thing the boss wanted was the client to cancel the order.
As a result, and in conforming to the ‘push the river’ model, she heard her boss lying to the customer on the one side whilst abusing the supplier on the other. As is usual in the push the river model, the pusher was pushed to his limit and was having an awful time. All his negative energy was spilling over into the rest of the office.
Whilst other employees shrugged the situation off, the lady in question became interested in what was happening and, using her own time, popped into the client’s guest house to have a look. When she arrived and viewed the current décor it was immediately apparent to her decorating mind that the out of stock fabric was in fact not the best match for the rooms in question.
Upon returning to the office, still without telling her boss what she was doing, she  identified some fabric that she felt would be a far more attractive option.  On enquiry she discovered that there was no problem with availability of her suggested fabric – in fact they even had several bales in their own stock.
She called the client, explaining that she had visited his premises, and that she had identified some really super fabric which she would like to show him. When the client arrived and looked at the fabric sample, he immediately agreed with her assessment and readily signed a re-order for the different fabric.  Problem gone!
This story clearly demonstrates the difference between the push the river and ride the river model. The enraged and stressed boss, was enraged and stressed because he was having to push the deal through. He had a sense that all his efforts in securing the first deal were being undermined. He had a sense that life was stealing away what was rightfully his. He had a sense that life has an irritating way of going wrong. His model of the world made the whole affair angry and unresolved.
The vitally interested and involved decorator was motivated by a passion of beautiful houses. She had a sense of the lovely and wished to express it. She followed her heart’s leading at every turn, not for outcomes, but just because it was her make up,  and she was being true to it. Her model of the world swept problems effortlessly away. Ironically all the wasted energy of the boss yielded no results, whereas the sweet and easy energy of the love of décor produced superb results.’
So what does this look like in daily life:  when I’m catching a wave and I want to work work work, I do. I get up at 4am, because a woken with words or the desire to do stuff. I work on with high energy until 8 or 9pm. I’m saying yes to the surge of work energy, YES to the impulse to work.
But there are times when I feel tired, and the energy for work is gone, leaving behind a thin voice in my mind that say ‘but you’ve got to work’. I’ve learned however not to listen to this old and un-useful inner dialogue. I’ve learned to say YES to my NO. And so I take downtime, right in ‘worktime’. Like a surfer simply doing nothing but waiting and resting on his board for the next wave, I rest. I go to movies, I sleep late, I read. I don’t go into push-push mode. I wait until the surge, the impulse to work comes up from my feet again.
Here’s how to make this concept your own:
  • Write up another sign/affirmation that says ‘NO MORE PUSH-PUSH. RIGHT ACTION COMES FROM THE FLOW OF LIFE. ‘
  • Then keep observing how often you force yourself to push on when you should be waiting for the wave. Notice how difficult it is not to force yourself.
  • Have downtime when your system signals so. Some of you might be burnt out and will need more. Others will simply need to finetune what you’re already doing. Irrespective of where you’re at the sea of Life Force is under you, holding you up, and will bring you what you need. if you will just trust.
 John Kehoe , author of t Mind Power’ says ‘Rest is not a reward for work well done. Rest is part of work.’ Give it a try!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 6: The ‘HOW’ of How Your Soul Guides You to Mega Money Goals

One of the most important personal discoveries I have made, one that has transformed my understanding and trust in how Spirit helps with the right decision, is the role of impulses.
So what exactly is this impulse and how does it work in helping you make the right decision?The www.dictionary.com defines impulse the following way: ‘An impelling force; an impetus. The motion produced by such a force. [In] Electronics. A surge of electrical power in one direction.’ This technical definition reveals an impulse as a force that produces movement in a certain direction, and that’s just what my divine impulse theory is all about.
Many people have an expectation that Spirit will speak to them in their head. Our Western thinking, so powerfully shaped by the Christian religion, is full of references to moments when God spoke to people and gave them direct instructions. It’s only natural therefore, that whether or not we practise or subscribe to a Christian viewpoint or not, the idea of spoken guidance from Spirit is an expectation.
Whilst Spirit can and does communicate in a speaking way, I believe it’s an exception, not the rule. Spirit does however, I believe, speak to us regularly – by an impulse – a surge of power which pushes us in a certain direction. Since most people expect divine words to be whispered into their ears, when these impulses happen most people don’t even notice them, let alone act on them.
Think of an impulse as an urge, add an ‘S’ for soul, and you have surge – a surge of desire! I think of this impulse/surge guidance system much like surfers on the sea. They sit on their surf boards and wait for that perfect wave. They can’t make the waves come, but when the right one starts to form, they, quick as lightening jump, on their boards ready to ride it. key to not is that they don’t make the power or direction of the wave. They simple use it to have the experience they want.
Guidance operates in the same way. It simply arises and we need to take it. In If we don’t ride it when it’s happening, the moment is lost, so sensitising ourselves to the action of these impulses is key.
When I moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town in 1994 an impulse helped me. I had selected an area where I wanted to live but couldn’t find a house in my price range.
After exhausting all the ‘normal’ ways to achieve this goal (like calling estate agents, looking in the newspapers) I decided to let go and let Spirit lead me. I started to affirm ‘I find the perfect house in the perfect place at the perfect price in the perfect way.’Resting peacefully in this self-talk I stopped my own efforts. Not long after this a sudden urge/surge/ idea, hit me: call the school in the area and ask if they know of anybody who had a house they wished to let. I immediately responded by picking up the phone (I rode the surge the minute it hit!). The secretary was a little cold when I explained the purpose of my call, and reminded me that they were a school not an estate agent. Nonetheless, she took my details.
A few weeks rolled by and in the course of my business activities I was asked to travel down to Cape Town. A day or two before I left, I received an unexpected telephone call. You’re guessing right, yes, it was the school secretary, saying that surprise, surprise the headmistress’s daughter had a house she wanted to let out The outcome?  I got a house at a rental lower than my budget via an all expenses paid trip. Elegant and easy. I had indeed I found the perfect house in the perfect place at the perfect price in the perfect way. It materialised because I was mad enough to act on an impulse.
Impulses are information packets of force which explode into our energy body, also known as our subtle body, sparking off a desire or an urge to do something. Impulses, waves of energy push us towards the goal that represents Spirit’s higher will – and those are the sort of decisions we want to take. This dynamic applies to your Soul and personal goals too. All of life is poised ready and able to help you ride the wave to mega money!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 5: The first tool I used to Manifest R100 000

Conscious breath is the first contact with the Divine. This beautiful saying, taught to me by a healer, Colyn van Dyk, is a key tool to manifesting mega money. I used this technique to manifest the R100,000.00 in six weeks. I still do. I used this technique to make daily choices, big or small. I still do. I used this technique to tap into my Divine Purpose. I still do. I used this technique to become present with myself. I still do. Conscious breathing is the first contact with the Divine – within and without.
In the type of world that we live in it is easy; in fact it’s common to have every single moment of our time filled with an activity. However it has been my experience that authentic success depends upon spending time in quiet contemplation. Being able to discover your power is dependent on getting to know your inner self. You can only do this if you spend time going within.
When we take ourselves out of the noise of daily living, we are able to really find out where we are at and develop a strong and reliable relationship with our intuition. A lot of people are so busy that they don’t really don’t know where they are at. Most people agree, however few get around to making time to be on their own doing nothing. It’s easier to veg out watching TV than to sit quietly in contemplation.
The best way to get going is to commit to 3 minutes of inner contemplation per day. Three minutes, that’s not difficult is it? When I used this 3 minute approach I soon found that my resistance to doing quiet time fell away. I promised myself I’d not leave the house without having my quiet time, and it had miraculous results. That was 12 years ago and I still do this most days.
Making sure I didn’t leave the house before I had done my three minutes allowed my inner self, the part of me that holds my life blueprint, the part that is connected to infinite wisdom, to have a say in my world. This is how I got in touch with the knowledge of what I should be doing, and how, how big my money goals should be, and how I should go about achieving them.
Your Soul, the overlighting intelligence of your life, is fully involved with the nitty gritty of day to day stuff. For example, at the end of a busy day settling in after a business trip, I was sitting watching TV when, out of the blue, an image of my hand throwing some papers into the rubbish bin earlier in the day just popped up into my mind.
Having settled down to watch a soapy, the last thing I was trying to do was tap into some profound insight or think about paperwork, but as the image flashed through my mind, I realised that the papers in the image were in fact not only my flight voucher, but the cheque my client had given me at the end of the workshop.
No prizes for guessing that I immediately leapt up, looked in the bin, that there it was, the very cheque, that I hadn’t even known was missing! The investment of the three minutes of private connecting each day enabled me to be ahead of my own conscious thought process and activities. Now if that’s not a benefit nothing is. And how useful would that be in your process of changing your patterns, responses and attractor factor when it comes to money. 
HOW TO DO THE 3 MINUTE BREATHING
1. find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed
2. set the alarm clock for 3 minutes
3. close your eyes and bring your attention on your breathing.
4. breathe in for the count of 4, pulling air into the tummy so that it expands, hold it for 2 second2, and then softly exhale for the count of 6, hold it for 2 second2. Repeat this breathing until your alarm clock goes.
At first you might find your mind chips in, chattering away about what you need to do or other such stuff. When that happens, gently bring your attention back to the process of counting your breaths in and out. Just become breathing and counting, counting and breathing. With practice easier and a feeling of deep peace enters in. This connection with your Soul is the very source of guidance you need on how to manifest that mega money you desire! As you do this practise more and more, the information will spontaneously arise in you without effort.
The beauty of this is that starting off each day with this exercise gives you a sense of control of your life. Even more exciting is the scientific fact that this type of breathing releases feel good chemicals in the brain (serotonin). So simply doing the breathing is a potent way to help yourself into a space of being fully who you are – a joyous being! (and now a rich joyous being).

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 4: How I Manifested R100 000 in 6 weeks

Years ago I set a 6 week goal to earn R100,000. The goal came from my YES space and I felt 100% that it was going to happen. I wrote up my goal and put it on my wall to keep me focused. What followed was fab.Whereas before I was battling for every cent, suddenly I got commissioned for talks which paid really really well. I got booked unexpectedly to do training for new clients. Until it suddenly all stopped. As d-day, 9th May 2002, drew near I was still R27 000.00 short. On the final day I was still R27,000.00 short. I felt a little foolish and dejected, that’s true. But what could I do, I resigned myself and moved on.

That weekend I went to clear my post box, something I’d been putting off. Surprise of all surprises, in the mail was a cheque from my Mom’s estate. Guess how much – R26 500 something!  I thought I’d been fully paid out my inheritance, but there was a letter saying that some shares had been sold and here was my portion!  It had been sitting in my post box on d-day! But I was still short of my goal total goal. Then I remembered some clients had purchased books for me in cash. So I took out my purse and by the time I had added that up, I had made my target.

To celebrate that amazing experience I framed the paper on which I wrote my goal. Here’s a picture of it, a picture of that moment when possibility met trust – and the great vortices of the Life Force moved on my behalf to bring about circumstances and situations to achieve my goal in miraculous ways.

So dear mega manifesters, trust life, if only because of this story! Trust life to meet you as you step out into a new way of relating to money. Trust is the way to get a YES in yourself – the way to attract the money you want and desire.
  • To get stressed watching and wanting your financial goal to be achieved.
  • To let go and just forget about it emotionally
 You know which choice is the ONE! So keep practising the techniques. And the next lesson will give you some of the tools and techniques that I used to achieve this. So watch this space and please keep chatting with each other. The energy of interaction is a healing force to help you step up and achieve that goal tucked into your envelope

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 3: Saying YES to your Mega Money Goal

The next step in manifesting your money goal is to turn your attractor switch ON. This involves getting your subconscious mind to line up to your conscious choices. Whilst your conscious mind has embraced your intention, your subconscious needs to be in that space too. Your subconscious beliefs and patterns are responsible for everything that is in your life today, so to change tomorrow, you need to work with the subconscious today. More significantly it is through the subconscious that our Soul speaks to us, so that makes this approach a must!

So today I’m going to give you some information about the conscious and subconscious – its quite a read, but really important to understanding manifesting. It’s an extract from my online Course in Feelings. Ready to turn your manifesting switch ON? Yes, let’s do it!

Conscious Mind
This is the part of the mind that you are aware of. You know it as the voice of the mind – forever commenting on your world. For instance when you are out shopping you might hear it say ‘now, do I want to make roast potatoes or mashed potatoes tonight? The children like mash, but these potatoes are too small’.

It not only sounds like a voice, but the conscious mind gives you mental images too. Along with the words roast potatoes it might show images of delicious potatoes, basting in a pan. And into the voices and image mix, come feelings, for instance if you have happy memories of family dinners where roast potatoes were served, cooking these for supper will be appealing without you even knowing why.

The Subconscious Mind
This part of the mind works below your awareness. It controls things from behind the scenes. For example the subconscious keeps your body functioning, after all you don’t instruct your heart to beat, or digestive juices to be secreted when you eat, or your muscles to contract as you walk. No, that’s all taken care of by the subconscious mind.

Moreover everything you do and have done your entire life, everything you see and have seen, everything about you and your world, has been and continues to be recorded in your subconscious mind. The subconscious is like a camera storing your entire experience of the world, including the zillions of bits you don’t even notice at the time. Although most of us cannot access most of this information it is nonetheless still in our minds, influencing how we think and respond. Most importantly it influences what we attract and what we repel.

The information stored is used by the subconscious as reference points to determine the best course of action in the present. If you have been bitten by a dog as a child, when you encounter one as an adult you will feel fear and avoid going too close. You don’t choose to feel fear. It happens automatically. In this way the past creates the present.

The fear is there to protect you from future pain, and in this way feelings act as your friend. In truth all of your feelings, produced by the subconscious, are there to help keep you safe and alive and it’s important to know and acknowledge this truth. Anger, frustration, sadness, guilt, defensiveness etc once, although helped you survive in the past – emotionally, physically or mentally. Some of your feelings might not help you now or even make sense, but they did at some point.

The subconscious mind not only keeps records but uses the information to run daily affairs in your life, in this case your money matters – how much you attract, how you feel when you receive it, how you feel when you spend it, when and how you save it or spend it etc etc.

When you wish to send a note to someone, you don’t have to say to yourself “now how do I write a ‘d’?” No, your hand simply knows this. Your mind knows this. You never have to remember the steps you were taught, you just go ahead and write. In the same way that it allows us to write without thinking about the task of writing; it guides your relationship to money without conscious thought about what is motivating your choice at the moment.

Your subconscious is responsible for over 90% of everything you think, say or do, every response or feeling. Wow! is that not amazing? And that’s the beauty of it – and the problem of it. It helps you recognise the numbers on your bank statement, but it also tightens your tummy when there is not enough money to pay the bills.

And alongside all the money events of our lives the subconscious has recorded all the feelings associated with them. Many and most of these we don’t remember, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t influencing you right now. Let’s say for example that every time you saved every cent of your pocket money as a little child your brother said that you were stingy. This would bring up negative feelings around saving money, and you might have turned out to be spendthrift. So, without knowing why, you never have any savings and you can’t stop buying stuff.

But what if you actually had a natural flair for knowing what shares to buy on the stock market? Wouldn’t the memories in your subconscious hold you back? Of course! So this week I am going to give you exercises to help you become even more aware of your feelings and behaviours around money. I’m particularly interested in the feelings tthat lie deeply hidden, waiting to steal away the money success you desire. We don’t have to discover all the memories and hey! we don’t have time to dig up every inch of the past either! What we want is simply for you to get in tune with your negative feelings about money so that you can use the information they provide to move on.

I like to think of feelings and intuition as falling into two categories – a YES feeling, and a NO feeling. And, both the person experiencing the feeling and any observant outsider can easily identify which feelings are active by simply looking at body language.

The man on the mountain picture is what a strong YES feeling does to the body. The entire body is open and reaching out into life in a joyful trusting way. A subtle version of this YES feeling would be somebody sitting with their arms and legs uncrossed, shoulders down and a friendly look on their face. No tension in the tummy, no pounding heart or short of breath. When you feel this way when dealing with your money, you know that your conscious and subconscious are lined up to achieve the goal.

A strong NO feeling would be the opposite. The body pulls itself inward, shrinking away from life. A subtle version of the NO feeling would be somebody sitting shoulders hunched, hands clenched, legs and arms pulled into the body by either crossing them or standing very erect and stiff. Spastic colon is also a version of this NO constriction. You probably experienced such bodily responses when stressing about money – or lack of it. I certainly have!

Now first thing to remember is that both YES And NO feelings and expressions are our friend. What! you might say! How can a spastic colon or heart palpitations be my friend? Simple! They give us important information about our money beliefs in the moments. To be clear, a YES is my friend, AND a NO is my friend. A YES tells you that your money attractor switch is ON. A NO feelings tells you that it is OFF.

The more you work with your NO feelings in the right way (which is what I’m going to teach you), the more wonderful YES feelings you will experience. The experience of a NO feeling is the sound of KNOW. When you have NO feeling, you KNOW that you’re repelling money.

Feeling are your friend! Feelings are information delivered straight from the subconscious. YES feelings are the signposts to natural success. YES feelings are like magnets, magnetising into your life everything you need to create abundance money, success and happiness. We all experience a range of YES or NO feelings every day, mostly in less pronounced versions than the YES man pictured above, but either way if we turn our attention to them it’s surprisingly easy to feel whether it’s a NO or YES.

And from now on we will be doing exactly as a regular practise. Over time and with repetition, you will become increasingly sensitised to the opening and closing feelings in your body, the YES and NO of the moment. When that happens you are in touch with essential information about your relationship to money, information that comes from a far greater and more potent source than that of your conscious mind. It comes from your unconscious, your Soul and the supra consciousness. And this is good news as you can use this YES/NO information to guide you to achieve your intention that you have lovingly placed in your envelop.

Practising the lessons

Start a record of what you feel when you think about or work with money in any form, noting whether you get a YESor NO feeling. Every time you take out your wallet to buy something, notice whether your feel open and expressed orclosed and shrunken. Everytime you see money in your bank account, notice whether you get YES/joy or NO/fear. In EVERY interaction with money you will take out your notebook, note the time, circumstance and whether you have a YES or NO sensation in your body. It’s not about mind, it’s about body, the voice of the subconscious.

After doing this for a week, you will have a much clearer idea of whether your subconscious is supporting your MEGA MONEY goal or countermanding it. This learning will put the power of choice in your hands. It’s key to note that the intention of this practise is NOT to change your NO feelings, just become aware of them. This is a very important point.

So my friends, a lot of information, but really important. Please post up at least one sentence a day on this face book page. Think of it as your diary. By doing that you will keep yourself doing the right legwork to get maximum mileage and transformation.

Good Luck! Good Money!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 2 : ABRACADABRA Continued

By now you have identified one specific goal that you’d like to achieve. It’s in the envelope and waiting, gathering energy.  I’ve put a red bow around my envelope and put it on my desk . You’re also doing the affirmations from the intro. I have written mine in bold, on a piece of paper, and put them on the wall next to my desk so I can see them often. I suggest you do the same. Now we need to create unbending intention, without which nothing is going to change!
Next, I’d like to you write yourself a letter, explaining to yourself what will happen in your world, both inner and outer, when your goal is reached. For instance if you have chosen to manifest a car, you might say ‘Dear Cat, your car will give you such a sense of power and freedom. Instead of having to walk everywhere, you’ll be enabled. You will feel happy and that everything is ok in your world. You can go visit clients, and friends whenever you choose. You love movement, and your car will give you that. …etc.’
Then assess your commitment to this project rating it from one to ten, where one is low commitment, and ten is full on determination. Don’t judge, just notice. End off by writing yourself a note to encourage yourself in this project. Then put your letter into an envelope, address it to yourself, and put a stamp on it. Then put your letter into yet another , and bigger, envelope and post it to me at. I won’t read it, but keep it, ready to post back to you at some point in the future.
When you’ve done that, go make your comment here on my blog. How did it feel when you completed the exercise, what discoveries did you make? The lesson for today is this: you do not have the thing you want in your life, (the thing in the envelope) because you want something else more. eina! But,what is the more you want?  Simple: the situation you have now. Unconscious payoffs are potent, and active. The first point of transformation is recognising that there are other stronger unconscious desires at play in your life, and these have been the guiding force up until now. Acknowledgement of such puts you in the driving seat of change.
As water shapes its flow according to the ground, success comes by
relating to the surroundings. Just as water retains no constant shape,
there is no constant condition. Thus, those who can flexibly adapt their
tactics according to the situation shall find success.
