inherent life, our indwelling God, assures us all the life of health,
peace, joy, and abundance that we can desire or conceive of."
- Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind
As we know from
our study of the Science of Mind, EVERYTHING in our experience is a
reflection of our beliefs. God is belief and belief is Law.
The spiritual genius, Jesus, was not the first to declare, "it is
done unto you as you believe (Law) as it was written five centuries
before Him in the Bagavadgita. It is a "change-less,
Universal Law" ... we may not always be conscious of it, just as we
may not always be conscious of the Presence of God ... but it is
ever-present and always working. Our beliefs affect our health,
our career, our relationships, our self-esteem and our money.
Our beliefs, being the Law of our Life, determine the measure of
happiness, joy, abundance, love and success that we are to experience.
The more money we desire to have, the greater must be our
"belief" in our ability to choose and initiate ideas that will
prosper us. God will never do anything for us that It cannot do
through us ... so, we must first "choose" the measure of
financial abundance that we want to experience ... and then, we must
"initiate" the "choice" in our mind. We cannot
demonstrate financial abundance, if we believe that we will always
struggle or have to deal with "money challenges" in some form
or another. I often have people tell me that they have
demonstrated prosperity and then "boom" ... some financial
demand is made on them that takes them by surprise and they are back to
struggling with finances again. This is often the result when we
do not "pay attention" to our money. We would never
consider not feeding our body every day ... but often, people will not
feed their mind with ideas of prosperity and plenty of money daily until
their bank accounts have wasted away.
Several years ago, a minister stood up in her
church and said "we don't need money all we need is God."
This can be a fatal mistake to our prosperity ... and it was to this
church. God is not separate from money ... money is as much a part
of God as health, happiness, love and joy ... and lack of money can
affect all these in a negative way. Our beliefs about money can
destroy our happiness, our relationships and even our health ...
"lack" is no "respecter of specificity" ...
our belief in "lack" may demonstrate lack of money, lack of
health, lack of relationships, lack of success ... and may do all of
them at the same time if our belief in lack is energized with deep
conviction. By allowing ourselves to remain in a struggle with
money ... we may sabotage our career, our relationships and even our
health. The belief in "lack" can be subtle in its
movement throughout our life's experiences.
How do we overcome a belief in lack? We do it
by following and mastering the greatest lesson given to the world
regarding prosperity ... by the Master Mind Jesus. He said,
"he who has little, will have even less, and he who has much, will
have even more still." In other words, if we allow our mind
to dwell on our little or lack ... we will continue to experience lack
and may even lose the little that we have. Why? Because we
are thinking outside of the Law ... the Law is BELIEVE ... anyone can
believe in what they see ... but the Law of Belief makes the demand on
us to BELIEVE BEFORE WE SEE. This is why Jesus said, "look
up, not down" ... if we look up to infinity ... then we initiate an
action in "mind" that realizes there is more than the eye can
see ... in all things ... including money.
So It Is!
