Week #22a Wallace Wattles and the Science of Getting Rich by Shelby Nolan

Aloha I decided to have a Guest Blogger this week so you can have someone else’s perspective on this Lesson for Week#22a Thank You Shelby Nolan…

I thought week 22A would be worth a revisit in case you all missed it last year :-)  ENJOY!!!

Week 22A is an off week for us MKMMA’rs. Okay not really an off week as our minds never quit, but a break week.

During this week, we were introduced to a great audio book by Wallace Wattles entitled “The Science Of Getting Rich”

Did you know that getting rich is a science?

what

Yep, this was my reaction too LOL.

If someone would have told me years ago that there was actually a science to getting rich, I would have been there eons ago! Ok, maybe I wouldn’t, but I could have started the process a lot sooner.

I mean, who knew that it was actually a science just like math or chemistry. If you follow the formula, you get rich.

Nawww, it couldn’t be that simple. Could it?

First we have to get it through our heads that we have the right to be rich in the first place.

“It is a fact that no man can rise to their greatest possible height in talent or soul organised unless he has plenty of money; for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.”

So says Wallace Wattles in chapter one. He goes on to say that

“A man develops in mind, soul and body by making use of things, and society is so organised that man must have money in order to become the possessor of things; therefore, the basis of all advancement for man must be the science of getting rich”.

Now to put this in context, you would have to read the whole chapter and for your listening enjoyment, I have put the audio book below so that you can listen to this incredible book.  My take away from it is that to live a truly happy life, we must live for all 3 parts of our life,

  1. Live for the body
  2. Live for the mind
  3. Live for the soul

No one of these is better or holier than the other; all are alike, and no one of the three –body, mind or soul– can live fully if either of the others is cut short of full life and expression.

We cannot live fully in body without good food, comfortable clothing and warm shelter. Nor can we live fully if we are completely stressed out all the time. We need rest, relaxation and recreation to keep the body feeling good.

Same holds true the other way, if our body doesn’t feel good, it’s real hard to feel good mentally and if we don’t feed our minds with the things that we enjoy such as literature, art, travel or intellectual companionship, we cannot live fully in mind.

Then there is our soul. To live fully in soul, we must have love; and love is denied expression by poverty.

I can hear you all now, “Wait a minute, I’m not rich and I still have love” Think about this for a minute….

Isn’t it true, that some of your happiest times is when you can bestow benefits and gifts on those you love? Love finds its most natural and spontaneous expression in giving. Giving is the true expression of love and being in poverty just hampers the ability to give.

It is in the use of material things that we find full life for body, development of mind and the unfolding of the soul. Therefore isn’t it of supreme importance to us that we should be rich? In fact, it is perfectly right that you should desire to be rich so as to be able to live life fully.

The science of getting rich can be summed up like this:

There is a thinking stuff from which all things are mad, and which, in it’s original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.

Man can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance can cause the hing he thinks about to be created.

In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; otherwise he cannot be in harmony wit the formless Intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.

Man may come into full harmony with the Formless Substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon him. Gratitude unifies the mind of man with the intelligence of Substance, so that man’s thoughts are received by the Formless.

Man can remain upon the creative plane only by uniting himself with the Formless Intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.

Man must form a clear and definite mental image of the things he wishes to have, to do, or to become; and he must hold this mental image in his thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the Supreme that all his desires are granted to him.

The man who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating his Vision, and in earnest thanksgiving that the reality is being given to him.

Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with unwavering faith and devout gratitude.This is the process by which the impression is given to the Formless, and the creative forces set in motion.

The creative energy works through the established channels of natural growth, and of the industrial and social order.

All that is included in his mental image will surely be brought to the man who follows the instructions given above, and whose faith does not waver.

What he wants will come to him through the ways of established trade and commerce. In order to receive his own when it shall come to him, man must be active; and this activity can only consist in more than filling his present place.

He must keep in mind the Purpose to get rich through the realization of his mental image. And he must do, every day all that can be done that day taking care to do each act in a successful manner.

He must give to every man a use value in excess of the cash value he receives, so that each transaction makes for more life; and he must so hold the Advancing Thought that the impression of increase will be communicated to all with whom he comes in contact.

The men and women who practice the foregoing instructions will certainly get rich; and the riches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.

Wattles, Wallace D. (2013-01-03). The Science of Getting Rich Greater Minds Ltd.

I sum it up as “Live your life in gratitude; gratitude for what you have and what you want to have. Holding in your mind the vision of what you want and have devout faith that it is already yours. Believe in your vision, feel your vision, have faith in your vision and it will be yours”

Obviously this is just a summary and Wallace explains way more in the book, so kick back, relax and listen to

Week#22 Going in2 the Silence Eyes Wide Open

THE SIT

Right back to the first lesson of the course we were given an exercise to sit perfectly still for 15 minutes to 1/2 and hour, we were to continue to do this for 3-4 days OR a week until we secured FULL CONTROL of our physical body.

WHY you ask?

Well when you can secure control over the physical body we can begin to control our thoughts, by inhibiting all thought of care, worry and fear then we will be able to enable only the kind of thoughts we desire…We appear to be more calm no twitching, foot taping, hair twirling etc…When we are calm we can focus more and then direct our thoughts to manifest all we desire.

It is about cause and effect: our mental is the cause and the world around us is the effect, thus we must work with the cause (our mind) should we want to remedy the effect. Charles F Haanel

Sounds pretty AWEsome doesn’t it?

So What Next?

As you go through a sequence of exercises to sit still, to inhibit all thought, to release physical tension, letting go of all negative emotions then visualizing your inner sanctum where you can ask questions…get clarity…so much can happen here in the silence.

I look forward to hearing about any of your experiences in your silence…

This week we are asked to spend more time in the silence to take time out of the busy lives we all have for ourselves, not just a 1/2 hour but a whole day OR a couple of days OR more…

The results you come away with are TOTALLY worth anything you had to sort with work and family to get there.  Hopefully sooner than later you will experience this YOU time.

I LOVE the silence and I go there often, this is where everything I want answered is presented…I am truly blessed that I can slip into the void whenever I want to, I appreciate and love all of the people with whom I have done this with and there have been many, some of you are reading this blog post right now…I hold all of those memories wherever I AM.

This is me getting ready to meditate high up in the Sahyadr (or the Western Gnats) near the Mulshi Dam, Maharashtra, India. I wanted to practice my yogic studies intensively and removing myself completely from the noise and distractions of Life. I will write about my experience there some other time…

Week#21 I AM Lorelei my Future Self…

 

So I begin my Story at the beginning…My Naming Day!

9:00am Saturday June 12th 1965

My Dad was a seaman (I say was, as he has now left the planet on another adventure) and I being his first daughter of course he was going to name me after a Mermaid 🙂

Lorelei

This video below is sung by one of my favorite Australian Artists Mike Seymour from the Band ‘Hunters and Collectors’ with his daughter Hannah…

So what has this all got to do with my future self?

I believe your naming day is a very special time as whom ever names you has a reason, from liking that name, being a family name passed down through the generations, to it having a certain meaning OR memory for them and then later on for you too unless you change it 🙂

From this time forth so many things are going to happen, you are going to learn habits some good, some bad but just about everyone you come into contact with will leave an impression OR habit with you…

Pretty full on and straight out of the gates before you can even speak you will communicate with gestures and sounds, whomever is attending to those needs will respond differently to each, as you begin to grow and understand more, more habits will be introduced, like not touching something HOT as it will burn you in most instances ‘fear’ is used this way, later its the ‘if you do that then this will happen’ guilt is used and so on and so on…Parents do what ever it takes to teach YOU good habits, morals etc.  But they are only working with the knowledge they have and what they were taught and passed down from whichever generation whom taught them to this, sometimes some really bad habits…

So when I take a look at myself NOW and then close my eyes and see myself in the FUTURE are we the same? What is different? What do I have to do to merge into the ME of my future?

#1: Learn some New Skills

#2: Become FRIENDS with my Future Self: chat, enjoy, love, create and just BE.

#3: Ditch everyone else’s habits and then grow and nurture my OWN.

#4: Make some Decisions and take Action

So What Does MY Future Self Look Like?

Bliss-Filled Glowing Orb of Shining Light…

WTF does that mean and what do you do to make that happen?

It means to JUST BE ME! The positive, optimistic,  Joy-Filled Being that I AM spreading my Light!

Greeting each day with LOVE in my Heart. Persisting and Succeeding. Being Nature’s Greatest Miracle. Living Each Day as if it is My Last. Being the Master of My Emotions. Laughing at the World. Acting NOW! Asking and Receiving. Giving and Being In Service…

…And before I know it…I AM my Future Self Living My Dream!

Here is a SPLASH of photo’s of ME EnJoying My Light with others…

Week Twenty: Putting on my Wonder Women pants and Striking a Pose

WONDER WOMEN…her PANTS

Lynda-as-Wonder-Woman-264419

&

Madonna’s STRIKE A POSE

il_340x270.672571128_sujj

I have stepped up to that plate you know the one everyone talks about “stepping up to”

I have been feeling uncomfortable in my own skin for over 3months now, what is causing this? I finally got clarity on Sunday Evening, a phone call from a treasured friend and everything was presented.

As I was reading my daily BPB (blue print builder) with ENTHUSiasm I would get to the line…”I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice therefore, I engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it effects” and I was feeling that something I was doing was just not in balance with this statement…

Well all has been revealed…so my above statement about Wonder Women, her pants and Striking a Pose was for ME to jump Into my fear pants n all and take on a big corporation, challenge them to justify some changes that were made and give me what I purchased OR a refund for said purchases, I have never done anything like this on my own, putting the info together, and then sending a letter which I blessed with loving kindness, sent my Angels in to talk with their Angels…

STRIKE a POSE! What is that?

So there is a way to make us feel more confident, less fear-filled and take action, be it reading in front of a classroom filled with children, going to a job interview, doing a life presentation, meeting on an airplane what ever you are a wee bit scared to do…

SHARE SHARE SHARE

Its about body language…take a look around you at your children, your partner, your work associates, team members, friends, people you look up to and see how they stand OR sit…Are they hunched over closed in on themselves OR are they straight and open?

Even if you feel scared you can “fake it till you make it”

Put yourself into a POWER POSE this is standing OR sitting straight and tall with arms either wide open above your head OR hands held stead fast to your hips, elbows facing out…hold this for 2minutes WOW you are going to feel totally Power-filled! You can visualize like I do my Wonder Women pants mine aren’t red, white n blue though mine are gold and sparkly, my niece sent them to me, she must of known I was going to need them this week ?

Then “Do It Now” what ever you were scared to do…Do it!  Go check it out!   See how it makes you FEEL and what does your body look like now?   I would love some comments posted on your experience…

So how did I feel?

Well…I did it, it took me several hours to get all of the information needed, document it all, get the letter sorted then mail it…I FELT FRIKEN AWESOME and when it was all done and completed I feel GOOD about my decision made.  Some more concrete just feel off!

CONCERETE? yeah concrete but that’s another story…

Another Confirmation that all is well is that my VIRTUE this week is DECISIVENESS how kool is that?

Week#18 ‘To be OR not to be’ Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Act3, Scene1, Spoken by Hamlet By William Shakespeare
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action
.
What the heck does that all mean? I would love to hear what YOU think it means YOUR translation not some experts!  I’m leaving it at that for now…

So as a Guide it is interesting to see who in the #MKMMA Tribe make it to the end of the course and on the way to Their Bliss. And for what reason do they complete it?

…In herald of the call OR just complete because they are stubborn and wont quit no matter what, even though they are not committed 100%.

Who makes the DECISION then hunkers down and does ALL the work!   Who walks down that ‘yellow brick road’ one step at a time AND who goes ‘falling down the hole to follow that white rabbit’

Are YOU fighting to not fall asleep in the field of poppies? Then hiding in the haunted forest from the flying monkeys? OR are YOU playing riddles with the Cheshire cat as he teaches you all about where you are at this time OR are YOU completely lost in the maze with the Queens guard hunting you down?

cheshire-cat-9

Then before YOU know it you have met some others along the “yellow brick road” looking for courage, a heart and some brains (knowledge) hmmm this looks a bit like a Master Mind Alliance here…Everyone doing their part on their own journeys but helping each other along the way, through the bad parts with a simple thing as a “bucket of water” and in the good times as they each realize it was all ‘within themselves’ after all.

imgres-1      imgres-3

OR do YOU go from small to BIG, you end up at some crazy tea party  alice-in-wonderland-party-tea-party

 

 

 

…then race into a maze where a trial for the knave of heart’s, who stole some tarts is being held, which by the way you think is ridiculous so you tell everyone, who then are all offended and the Queen orders “off with her head”.

il_570xN.305814060

…All the while following the white rabbit … images-1

Then you wake up still where you were before you fell down the rabbit hole…

So where are you on Your Journey so far?

Are You Working with a Master Mind Alliance, trial by trial working it out, getting it done! Dragons – 0 You – 25+, realizing YOU already have what you need to achieve WITHIN you. If you reach out to those around you, contribute and accept their assistance, then you can do great things, which you wouldn’t do on your own.

OR are YOU going crazy round and round up and down, STILL finding yourself in the same place with the same thoughts as where you begun when you wake up outside the Rabbit Hole?

“I cant tell you right now what the moral of that is, but I shall remember it in a bit” “Perhaps it hasn’t one” Alice ventured to remark.“Tut, tut, child!” said the Queen. “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find itAlice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll

 YES people its YOUR DECISION are you walking down the Yellow Brick Road step by step to Your Bliss?

OR falling down the Rabbit Hole into the safe known?
