Prosperity. Abundance. The Law of Attraction. The Secret.
These concepts have been very popular in recent years. A check of “The Secret” on google yields over three hundred million pages. The other words yield similar results. What is it about these concepts that elicit such interest? Easy money? More of the good stuff in life? Happiness? The fact that these concepts have been around for ages tells there might be something deeper involved that just getting rich quick.
With literally hundreds of courses and seminars and webpages and blogs telling us how to make money quickly and easily, why are so many people still living a life of lack? I used to have a friend that was involved in the heavy lifting portion of buying and selling real estate. That is, he owned a carpeting company and was contracted out by the guys that would by foreclosures, fix them up, and then re sell them. One of the startling things he discovered was that sometimes in the houses, people wouldÂ leave behind books on prosperity and abundance. If these books thatÂ were left in foreclosed housesÂ don’t hold the answers, what does?
I think a lot of the material out there on abundance and law of attraction really only touchesÂ the surface. I believe that in order to truly attract abundance, you need to take a deep look at your beliefs. And this can take time and effort, which is what many people are trying to avoid when they buy into these seemingly ‘get rich quick’ ideas. Not that there’s anything wrong with getting rich quick.Â I alsoÂ think you need to be internally prepared to accept abundance.
I remember reading a project Oprah did many years ago. She selected a group of down and out people, and gave them all houses, money, jobs, clothes, everything. What do you think happened? Yep. Twelve months later they were all back out on the street.
And we’ve all heard stories of sudden lottery winnings that have ruined peoples lives.
I think it’s clear from this that before being able to attract true abundance, you need to do some deep inner work to make sure you’re ready to receive.
One thing I’ve found that helps me tremendously, is the Prosperity Paraliminal CD from Learning Strategies Corporation. I’ve written about them before, as I own almost everything they produce. That’sÂ one of theirÂ CD’s I’ve listened to several dozen times, and know I will several more. Like the Self Esteem Supercharger, it uses a variety of techniques to lower your conscious resistance to deepÂ changework. It uses a dual induction method that will quickly bypass your conscious resistance to change, so that you can receive lasting benefits. In the left ear is a pretty cool metaphor, aboutÂ two teachers,Â and in the right ear is some kind of visualization exercise. One of the interesting things is, is that the more you open yourself upÂ to abundance on a deep level, the more you realize that it is so much more than just easyÂ money.
One cool JungianÂ synchronicityÂ that happened to me after a listening session was that I found a dollar bill in my laundry. Not a big deal until you consider I was living in Taiwan at the time, and really had no ideaÂ where that dollar bill came from. I did eventually find the source of the dollar bill (it wasn’t magic),Â but it was strange coincidence that it appeared when it did. The unconscious mind can work in strange ways sometimes.
