Feeling Down? Give to Feel Good

Feeling Down? Give to Feel Goodby Sonia Ricotti. Many people say that they would love to help others in need but can’t because they have to get through their own personal crisis/situation first. How can I give to others when I don’t have much myself? Once they are taken care of, then they will help others. Sorry; that’s not how it works...

Lack or Abundance?

Lack or Abundance?by Joyce and Barry Vissell.

Everywhere we look, there are signs of economic challenge: companies going out of business, houses not selling, rising unemployment, more and more people complaining about less and less money. This is one picture Is it the only picture, the only reality?

Having All You Want

Whoa! Hold on a minute, you may be thinking as you look at that headline. Yes, I know the objections, but come with me as I show you how the statement does hold up under spiritual scrutiny. As many of us on a metaphysical path, I started my training with visualization, programming and positive affirmations. And yes, after much practice...

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...

The Floating Fig Miracle

Alan CohenI was famished. I had not eaten for many hours . I began to feel anxious about not being able to get anything to eat until the next day. Somehow, I reasoned, I would be taken care of; even if I had to go without food for a while, my heart was full. I surrendered my sense of struggle and remembered...

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. Yet, we will usually talk about it only like the weather -- in general economic terms. In this age of open discussion...

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. That may change in the future, but for the now, money is the measure to be used as an exchange of energy. As always, the end result to strive for is balance...

Having It All

by Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

It is a simple procedure to calculate the number of seeds in an apple. But who among us can ever say how many apples are in a seed? No one — and the reason is that the answer is infinite. Endless! That is what the abundance principle is all about...

Receiving Prosperity

Louise L. Hay

When we use the term prosperity, a lot of people immediately think of money. However, there are many other concepts that come under the auspices of prosperity, such as: time, love, success, comfort, beauty, knowledge, relationships, health, and, of course, money.

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.

Creating True Prosperity

Shakti Gawainby Shakti Gawain.

 True prosperity is not something we create overnight. It is not a fixed goal, a place where we will finally arrive, or a certain state that we will someday achieve. It is an ongoing process of finding fulfillment that continues to unfold and deepen throughout our lives.

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. So your stuff -- your service, your creativity, whatever will always be different, unique, and desirable. Why? Because you will imbue it with energy, the God Force, love, and caring.

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.

Are You Financially Literate

Grace TerrySeveral years ago when I decided to attract my ideal spiritual partner, I created a long list of qualities and characteristics I would like to have in that partner. I then released my desire to the Universe and asked for "this or something better." Well, I got everything...

Fear of Success

Jann Mitchell Success can feel scary, almost like a shameful secret. Success carries a whole new set of fears: of being rejected by people, of having our parade rained upon, of having our success somehow invalidated or even ripped away from us overnight. Success can feel good and bad at the same time.

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. You make a good living, pay your bills and save money, so you feel successful. I define success in a different light. Success can be measured only by the degree to which you have inner peace and if...>
