Prosperity in Tough Times

abracad, · Categories: abundance, externally authored

by Richard Dupuis

You absolutely must maintain a positive “can do” attitude in tough times or they will become even tougher.  When you allow yourself to become demoralized, your energy contracts and you are not receptive or creative.   You don’t have to ignore the facts and go into denial, but it does mean you have to stay detached and not follow the crowd into a burning building.  You are autonomous; it doesn’t matter what’s going on around you.  There is nothing outside of you that can affect you.  Quantum physics says the observer creates the observed.  You are the observer and creator of your life and no one or no thing has any power over you.

The Success Equation And The Seven Myths About Manifesting Abundance

by Linda Zander

We've heard it all a million times: the various secrets of how to manifest lives of abundance.  Every "Guru" has their own angle; a singular approach to manifesting that we've all tried.  And yet, in spite of the countless Gurus offering books, programs, products, etc that espouse the "secret to manifesting" we are in the biggest Global economic and well-being crisis since the Great Depression. What does that say?  That somehow we, as brilliant and intelligent human beings have failed the "secrets" that have been taught to us? I know this is not true.  (more…)


The Science of Getting Rich

The Science of Getting Rich

The Science of Getting Rich is a best-selling classic by Wallace D. Wattles that outlines a scientific approach to wealth acquisition that (according to the author) if diligently applied cannot fail to yield the desired results.

The premise of the book is that it is natural and right to seek expansion, and that this expansion is facilitated by having as much material wealth as we need and want.

Wattles asserts the existence of a reality above and beyond the physical universe and human life referred to as the thinking stuff or formless intelligence. This is commonly known as God, Spirit or Source. Thoughts made in this all-encompassing "reality" tend to create the reality imaged by the thought. This is the Law of Attraction recently popularized by The Secret. (more…)


How to Be Rich (if you really want to)

abracad, · Categories: abundance

Andrew is well educated and hard working. He's good at his job and often gets repeat business from satisfied clients. Andrew makes enough money to keep himself and his family, but is far from what would be described as "rich".

Many people say they want to be rich, and even act like they want to be rich - though somewhat half-heartedly. Andrew's "problem" (if you can call it that) is that wealth consciousness isn't his main driver. He works for money, but once he's managed to fulfill his family's needs he prefers to divert his remaining energies to other interests. (more…)


What Does Rich Mean?

abracad, · Categories: abundance, spirituality

Sufficiency means having food, shelter and clothing. Being rich can be defined as having considerably more than enough, both now and indefinitely into the future, without dependency on work or chance.

But humans generally need more than the material basics of food in their belly, a roof overhead, and a shirt on their back. They need to give and receive love, companionship, and a degree of fulfillment/purpose. Being rich is all these things. But can we all be rich? (more…)


Abundance Meditation

abracad, · Categories: abundance, self help, wise words

Meditation has long been an integral part of Eastern mysticism with the discipline enjoying growing popularity in the West as more people discover its benefits on both mind and body. Meditation can take a variety of forms but essentially involves withdrawing attention from the physical senses while trying to quieten the chattering noise of consciousness.

There has been much interest of late in the subject of abundance, indeed the self-help shelves are chock full of titles on the topic. The principle of abundance says the universe consists of plentiful supply just waiting to be claimed by those who ask.

This meditation combines the mental and physical benefits of an altered state with a training of the mind to promote abundance-attracting behavior. You can either memorize the words, repeating them internally to yourself, or read them onto a tape (changing "I" to "you") to be listened to at the appropriate time. (more…)

The Game of Life and How to Play It

abracad, · Categories: abundance, books, ebooks, reviews, self help

The Wisdom of Florence Scovel ShinnFlorence Scovel Shinn's 1925 classic The Game of Life and How to Play It is yet another earlier, and in my opinion superior, version of recent blockbuster The Secret.

Born in 1871, Scovel Shinn worked as an artist before becoming a teacher of metaphysics (or as she calls it "Truth").

The Game of Life is the first of a series of works outlining Scovel Shinn's particular take on the philosophy of abundance. Essentially, she asserts that life can offer all we desire; we simply have to ask for it, and prepare for it, in the absolute belief that what we want is already ours. (more…)


Your Invisible Power

abracad, · Categories: abundance, books, ebooks, reviews

Your Invisible PowerGenevieve Behrend was the only personal student of mental scientist and pioneer of the "new thought" movement Thomas Troward. In 1921 Behrend wrote Your Invisible Power with the purpose and hope that its suggestions may furnish readers a key to open up the way to the attainment of their desires, and to explain that fear should be entirely banished from their efforts to obtain possession of the things they desire.

Behrend presupposes that the desire for possession is based upon the aspiration for greater liberty. For example, you feel that the possession of more money, lands or friends will make you happier, and your desire for possession of these things arises from a conviction that their possession will bring you liberty and happiness.

The Secret (law of attraction)

The Secret - DVD The Secret - book

The Secret is a recent movie and book by Rhonda Bryan that claims to reveal the secret to a happy, healthy, wealthy and fulfilled life. Bryan draws on the words of some of the finest Spiritual and inspirational teachers in support of the Secret, which is basically the law of attraction.

The universe is likened to some great catalog ordering service. All you have to do is place your order, for whatever you want, by thinking about it with feeling and acting in the belief it's already in your possession. Amazingly the universe hears your request and pulls out all the stops to satisfy it.

Your thoughts and feelings are a self-fulfilling prophesy. If you feel good, you will be sent more to feel good about. If you think life sucks, it will. So all you need to do is change your way of thinking.

The Secret is fine so far as it goes. Positive thinking and feeling is pretty well necessary for any kind of success. You can be the world's greatest player, but if your mind isn't right you will under-perform and likely lose.

To my mind the danger of the Secret is that it continually implies that right thought and feeling are sufficient for success.

Let me explain why (I believe) that view is flawed.

There are only limited resources in the world. If everyone asks for a billion dollars and 20-room house on a huge lot. Some people will be disappointed, even though they follow all the "rules".

Additionally, life isn't about material acquisitions, it's about having experience - both positive and negative. If success comes just by thinking about it, who's gonna do any work, who's gonna learn anything?

And as most of life's lessons come from difficulties, if we wish our difficulties away altogether, won't life become pointless?

I'd recommend anyone to watch/read the Secret. I'd recommend anyone to put its lessons into practice. But I'd recommend they are put into practice alongside a practical action plan designed to get you from where you are now to where you wanna be.
