CHAPTER 12
REALIZING AND FULFILLING THE WEALTH THAT YOU ARE

Figure out what you most enjoy doing,
what unleashes the most creative forces from within you,
and then let people pay you to do it.

Strange de Jim, Visioning

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
Woodrow Wilson, 28th U.S. president

You are love. That is to say that your experience of love is what will most motivate you to achieve wealth in the world. By expanding your experiences of love you will feel most rewarded. Love is what connects you to others and to the best you can be, do and have in your life. You are unique - even if you have an identical twin, there will be times you see things differently. Your unique composition of talent, skill, qualities, aptitude and appetite ensures you a productive place in this world.

In this view of human possibility, I am not proposing a solution for world economics. I am neither politician nor statesman equipped to offer such proposals. It is my hope that as a reader you have been drawn to this text because it has something for you and that you will benefit by reading it.

Your inner world of love - joy, enthusiasm, curiosity - gives you the energy to apply the assets and resources you have to serve in the world outside of you. That world will reward you financially for your work. When you contribute with love you will be rewarded in many other ways beyond financially. No matter whether you are embarking on a career after full-time education, or seeking personal expansion at the conclusion of full-time economic activity, your resources are important and valuable. When put to practical use, they will provide you with a wealth of expansion, growth and understanding.

THE WEALTH THAT YOU ARE

This guided visualization is intended to connect you with the source of your wealth, your love, in its many dimensions. From this inner base, you will be able to expand the wealth that you are and realize it in the world around you. You may wish to read it, or record and listen to it with your eyes closed.

First of all, find a comfortable place to rest, ideally so that you will not fall asleep if you are listening to this - unless you want to use it to assist you to get a peaceful night’s sleep. Make sure that your body is well supported and that no-one or nothing can disturb you.

Take a few deep breaths and relax. Let go of any concerns of the day, any feelings, thoughts, lists of things you think you should do. Let this time be just for you. An investment in your well-being. A short holiday break away, into the world of your love. See melt ing from you any tensions you may have been holding in your muscles. Feel yourself becoming soft. Notice any sounds around you, as if they are in the far distance. Be aware of any sounds you hear inwardly.

Take your attention to your physical body and all the many ways its supports you - in being able to move around, walking, running, dancing - engaging in sports, expressing yourself, having fun and pleasure, engaging with others. Feel a sense of gratitude for all that you are able to do in a day, from waking up to sleeping, through being in this body, how it carries you and serves you.I

Imagine you have a light beam of gratitude that you can focus all over your body in appreciation for all that it does for you. Start with your feet and how they support you. Your legs and how they move you forward. Your hips and creative centre and the joy you experience through your creativity. Your lungs, heart and all the organs of your torso which function in so many unseen ways. Light them up with your love and gratefulness. Now your arms - how they reach out to receive and give and share your love with hugs and gestures of friendship. Your amazing hands and wrists that are so cleverly articulated. Your head and all the senses of perception that you enjoy - that bring the world around you to life, that enrich you.

Breathe in this appreciation and expand it. Feel the fullness of the love you have for your body and the warmth as your appreciation grows. As you send your love to your body, notice how it is becoming more vital, alive and energized. Be aware of how your confidence is growing, how you are more centred in your own special presence. Listen to the vibration of your peace and preparedness.  

Now bring to mind those you love and care for - children, parents, your spouse, close friends. One by one, take a few moments to appreciate their special strengths and qualities, what it is about them that you love. Reflect on how you have shared moments that have enriched you, that you value. With each person, take the light beam of gratitude and gently shine it on them. Observe a new radiance that they have in this light. Become more aware of their unique essence and how thankful you are for the gifts they have shared with you in the past, and now. As you take a moment or two to value each important person in your life, feel the richness in you grow. Notice how full you have become. Now very gently and gradually bring yourself out of the meditation. Take a few moments to write down any observations you have received so that you may anchor more fully this world of your value.

As a final part of this exercise, you might like to make contact with some of the people who came to mind in the meditation, to express your appreciation for their presence in your life and the gifts that they have given to you.

It was a few years after I left a job with an employer who was not one of the easiest people to get along with. Probably the demands of running a small business meant that she could be short-tempered and intolerant - or so it seemed to us, her employees. Nevertheless, she had given me a job at a time when I felt I was unemployable. The job had been very stretching and valuable to me. I learnt basic interviewing techniques. These enabled me to subsequently move on to do the Consultations, that were incredibly rewarding for me.

In hindsight, I was very grateful for the opportunity she had given me. So I wrote her a short letter of appreciation which was truly how I felt. She wrote back to me. She was very touched to have heard from me and offered me any support I needed with what I went on to do. The note of gratitude completed a past phase of my life and left me with a warm feeling about it.

I have since worked the gratitude miracle about many of the events and people from my past which were difficult or painful. It has always proved to be very liberating for me.

PREPARING TO RECEIVE

This is by way of a short review in summary.

  1. Start by choosing what it is that you want, that will expand your experience of wealth. What is true for you right now? What is essential to you that will make the greatest difference to you? Allow yourself to reflect on this.

  2. Write down what you want in as much detail as you can. There is something about committing yourself to paper that engages your energy and necessity to achieve your intended result. Include at the end of what you write: This or something greater for the highest good of all concerned. This safety clause allows for an even better outcome than the one you have in mind right now. Life can conspire to assist you in many ways you may not be able to anticipate in this moment. Your intention now sets you off in the direction you want to go, but what if there were something even better for you, that you could not anticipate right now?

  3. Now let it go. That is to say: don’t worry at it or doubt that it is possible or can happen for you. Begin to wonder about how your intention will come about and most of all, be open for your intuitive leads to direct and guide you.

  4. Be willing to tell no one else about your objective. There may be people who actively assist you with accomplishing parts of it, but they only need know about that which is relevant to them. Telling others before the results have come in can drain your intention away from you, and derail you from your commitment.

  5. Get active, one step at a time. If you want to own a new car, it is unlikely that someone is going to drive it into your front room as you sit at the computer or watch the tv. Consider what you are going for and reflect on the very next step you need to take. Do it, and then be open to the very next step you need to take.

  6. Make the space to receive - so clear away obstacles - clutter, incompletions, those things that no longer serve you or give you energy. Find ways you can simplify your life - let go of what no longer works for you. Forgive yourself for any self-judgments, doubt, fear or worry. Clear the mental and emotional debris from the past with loving kindness and compassion towards yourself.

  7. Nurture and cultivate your inner wealth and well-being. On the way to achieving what you want, have fun! Enjoy the process. 

     create affirmations on 5 by 3 cards that powerfully and positively describe your success, as if it had already happened. Read them early in the morning and just before sleeping. Carry them with you when you are on a long journey.

      envisage your success - picture in feelings, images, sounds - even tastes and smells - the results you want vividly in your imagination. Take quiet moments to do this - in the shower, out walking, standing in line or in traffic. Build a feeling of anticipation and excitement as inwardly, your objective becomes real for you. The more vivid it becomes within you, the more easily you will attract it to you.

     surround yourself with positive people - spend time with others who are similarly expansive in their lives, moving forward and enjoying the blessings that their life holds for them.

     be grateful - for every thing you have around you right now, even and especially those things that fall far short of what you are now aiming towards.

  8. Be open to receive what it is you want as you co-operate with your inner guidance and direction.

MANIFESTING THE TRUTH ABOUT YOU

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

The quote above has been attributed to both Nelson Mandela’s Inaugural Speech in 1994 and to Marianne Williamson.

The spiritual essence I see in all of my clients, and those who come to the seminars I facilitate, is without fail extraordinary. It is not necessarily the ones with large personalities and impressive achievements in the world that touch me the most. Often, those whose lives are relatively simple and ordinary demonstrate remarkable human qualities. I have learnt to be open to, and surprised by, the person in front of me.

To manifest is to make known and clear. Manifesting your objective and intentions for wealth can happen in a way that is almost “out of your hands”. That is to say, you do have to create the internal conditions to receive, and keep a positive focus of intention alive in you. Similarly, you need to put in the practical leg work as you engage in the world to bring about your desired outcomes. All of this is best done however with a sense of detachment and trust, enthusiasm and joy.

Having done all you reasonably can, both inwardly and outwardly, you can allow life to deliver to you what it is you want. Let it come to you by an unexpected meeting; a phone call; an invitation. There are ways too numerous to mention. Plan to be surprised! Meantime, enjoy your life as if you already have what you want that will be improving it in some way. Allow what you want to manifest itself to you as you have been picturing it.

A BLESSING FOR YOU

For this blessing you might once again like to be in a comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. Turn off the phone or any beepers.

Open your spiritual heart to receive.
Breathe gently and evenly into the sweet peace within you.
Know that you are love, that you are Divine, that you live in God’s Grace.
You are adored, just as you are.
There is nothing you can do that can separate you from Divine Love.
You are one with all of those that bless you now,
worshipped, celebrated and cherished.

Listen for and hear the sounds of love - joy and laughter.

Feel your tenderness -
let the softness of Spirit embrace your gentle spirit.
See the protection of a pure white crystal Light surround,
fill and sustain you and the intentions you carry within you.

This blessing extends to you from the highest levels.

Dearly Beloved One know that you are never alone,
that many hands are extended to you
to realize and fulful your special essence,
the One that is who you truly are, now and forever.

We now extend to you our Blessing for all that you are to do,

for all that you are to become, for all that you are.
There is nothing you have to do to gain our love - you are already love.
Our Blessing comes to serve you on your journey

into the greater awareness of your Divinity,
for all the ways that you will be exploring
and discovering the Truth about you.
There are no mistakes that you can make that will not serve you.
All is forgiven.
All is loved completely and unconditionally.
Be at Peace.
Live in Joy.
All is well.
