How to Be Wealthy: Wealth Consciousness

What is consciousness? It is being awake to something. Wealth consciousness is being awake to wealth. You cannot experience what you are unaware of.

I am wealth. I am abundance. I am joy. —

Several studies show that many people who win over $1 mil­lion in lotteries end up worse off financially than they were before they won. They lose all that money in amazingly short periods and end up even worse off because of the new debts and liabilities they accumulate.

Money Does Not Make a Person Wealthy

It is not money that makes a person wealthy. It is wealth consciousness. People without wealth consciousness are unable to be­come wealthy, even when a huge sum of money comes their way in a lottery win.

On the other hand, people with wealth consciousness cannot fail to have money and wealth for extended periods. They may go broke occasionally due to an error in thinking or a higher choice, but they always bounce back up. They have no fear of going broke because they know that, even if it happens, it is temporary, and they are designed to come right back up. You can take away all their money and, within a year, they will be wealthy again, or at least be on their way to wealth. Luck has nothing to do with it.

How To Become Wealthy? Become Aware and Mindful

The greatest creative forces become available when your con­scious, subconscious, and super-conscious selves are in harmony in their choices. You make them so by raising your consciousness and awareness to all three levels of your Self. You become aware and con­scious of things you used to do subconsciously. You can do this by deciding to be aware.

Decide to be mindful and deliberate; watch your thoughts and actions and dreams, instead of walking about day­dreaming in a daze and doing things automatically. It is also a good idea to consider Vipassana (mindfulness) meditation. It is one of the best was to increase your awareness.

Being Conscious of Your Thoughts and Your Choices

You see, your Self makes choices, but if you are not aware of them, you will not know what they are. These choices are super-conscious. You start becoming aware of them by honoring your feelings (not emotions or thoughts masquerading as feelings, but genuine feelings). You also become aware of your super-conscious mind through meditation.

You make some choices consciously and you make some sub­consciously. You can increase your awareness of your subconscious choices by deciding to be aware, by watching your thoughts. For example, in the past you may have had idle thoughts of fear and indeci­sion regarding a particular topic. These thoughts went on in your head all the time as you did other things; they were background thoughts. Well, now what you should do is watch your thoughts and do not allow any idle daydreams that keep tossing about an issue like a wild monkey in a cage.

The point is that, if for a particular decision these three levels all choose differently, your results will obviously be mixed and confusing to you. The way to fix that is to raise your awareness on all levels.

The Source of all creation is a field of infinite possibilities and creativity. Our true Selves are one with the Source, in the same im­age and likeness. When we are conscious of that and believe it is so, we tap into this field of infinite possibilities and our inherent creative abilities.

You must have wealth consciousness that knows no poverty (or, more accurately, the illusion of poverty). Work on it until the idea of poverty is laughable — until to think that you can possibly become poor is a ridiculous idea to you.

Wealth Consciousness: Recognize & Increase Your Inner Value

How to Be Wealthy: About Poverty, Prosperity & Wealth ConsciousnessYou create money by increasing your value inside yourself. You do that by reading books like this. You also do that by remember­ing your true Self that is in the image and likeness of the Source — abundant by nature. You then experience money by exchanging the value you have built in you. Exchange it with others by providing services, goods, and money to others in exchange for their services, goods, and money.

Paper money is just a medium of exchange for our uniquely developed internal value. Build wealth by building your inner value. Experience wealth by car­rying out your purpose and ability using that built-up inner value. It all lies inside you.

To build external wealth, build internal value and then exercise it. It is that simple. The biggest components of in­ternal value are instantly available to all. These are faith or certainty, imagination, inquiry, and focus. Activity, taking action, translates inner value into outer value, material wealth.

Wealth follows those with wealth consciousness, not the other way around. Wealth consciousness comes from states and thoughts of prosperity and wealth that are full of confidence. It does not allow any thoughts about poverty or limitations, doubt or scarcity. It does not allow states of fear and disbelief.

The earning of money has nothing to do with the direct ma­nipulation of the paper you now call money. It has everything to do with wealth consciousness.

I am wealth. I am abundance. I am joy. —

Wealth is a predictable result. The causes of wealth are predict­able and accessible to all without exception.

I am wealth. I am abundance. I am joy. —

To the extent that you have wealth consciousness inside of you, outside things will enable you to experience wealth or hinder you from experiencing it. This is the same for happiness. To the extent that you have happiness inside of you, outside things will enable you to experience happiness or hinder you from experiencing it. And it is the same for everything else — peace, love, non-judgment, non-condemnation, non-segregation, and so on.

I am wealth. I am abundance. I am joy. —
