The Essence of Need: Waking Up to Who You Are

The Essence of Need: Waking Up to Who You Areby Dr. Paula Horan. It is essential to tune into the love that is all around us if we are to receive the abundance which is truly ours.

What Is Wealth?

J. Donald Waltersby J. Donald Walters.

Wealth is something we create. It is not merely there, waiting for us to find it and lay claim to it. Thus we see that it isn't only that we attract money to us: We attract energy, which then manifests itself in the form of money.

Ask And Receive

by Susan de Montfort.

It has been dramatically revealed to me time after time that the Biblical pronouncement of "Ask and Ye Shall Receive" is a veritable truism. It only needs a deep-seated belief and a fervent affirmation to successfully execute it.Why does it work? Perhaps no one will ever be able to prove why in purely scientific terms, but...

Consciousness and Money

Prospering Woman by Ruth Rossby Ruth Ross, Ph.D. Prosperity has had only one connotation for too long -- money. The subject of money has a powerful emotional charge, equivalent to the subject of sex.

Generating Abundance

by Paul, via Penelope Ashton. It is true that money should never be used as the only yardstick for accomplishment, but it is useless to pretend that is not so.

How Riches Come to You

by Wallace D. Wattles & Dr. Judith Powell.

When we say that you do not have to drive sharp bargains, we do not mean that you do not have to drive any bargains at all, or that you are above the need to deal with your fellow human beings. We mean that you will not need to deal with them unfairly. You do not have to get something for nothing, and you can give to every person more than you take from them.

Expecting the Best: Living by Faith Instead of Fear

Expecting the Best: Living by Faith Instead of Fearby Tom Butler-Bowdon. Sometimes, intensity of desire can actually turn away things that are good for you because it suggests faith only in yourself and not in the higher power that has created you. Even burning ambitions and desires are most easily realized by allowing them to be realized — a case of "set and forget."

Attracting Abundance

John Payne

by John Payne. Two feelings are fundamental to the attracting of anything in your life: one is gratitude, the other is self-appreciation. When you look at your life with gratitude, you shift your focus onto what you like. As you shift your focus onto something, more of the same comes to you. That is the Law of Attraction.

Creating True Prosperity

Shakti Gawainby Shakti Gawain.

Abundance is Natural

by Stuart Wilde.

It isn't hard to see the abundance of our planet. You only have to look at the fruit trees in the fall, the lushness of life. Buckminster Fuller calculated that if all the wealth of the world was divided equally among its citizens, each and every one of us would be a millionaire.

Energy Is Priceless

Stuart Wildeby Stuart Wilde. To make money, you have to deliver your energy in some form, to satisfy a demand that is out there.

Balancing Spirituality

by Robin Crow.

Robin CrowI have always believed that separating spirituality from the rest of our lives is like shooting ourselves in the foot. Your spiritual life should be reflected in the way you run your business, the way you treat those with whom you work, and the way you treat your competitors. Honor, honesty, and integrity are essential ingredients in spiritual and material abundance.

Becoming Fulfilled

Deborah L. Priceby Deborah L. Price. We have so confused money with fulfillment that the very meaning of the word has been lost. Fulfillment can only be truly experienced internally. It is not something you can acquire or buy. It is not a place you can fill full enough with stuff to take you there. Fulfillment is about completion and self-realization.

Fears of Managing Money

Frederick S. Brown by Frederick S. Brown. Many of us are terrified of handling our money because we don't believe we can do it well, and to do it wrong would jeopardize our very existence. On a deeper level we know that money is not the source of life, but our egos don't, and they drive us to act as if it were. They imprison us in self-doubts and prevent us from...

Abundance Lives Inside of You

Susan Smith Jones by Susan Smith Jones. For many people, abundance and prosperity are tied to their level of self-esteem.
