So if you haven't read my previous blog post (titled above) then I suggest you do that now otherwise there's a possibility you'll think I've gone a little cuckoo!!
So now for a quick recap ...
When we continue this cycle for some time we start to become addicted to those chemicals, those "happy" chemicals or those "poor" chemicals (or whatever chemicals you tend to roll with) and so, as with any addiction, it is a challenge to break these chemical patterns.
We begin to believe our thoughts and feelings as real, and not as the addiction that they are, and so it becomes a big struggle and almost uncomfortable to be wealthy if we are addicted to "poor" chemicals because where will our "poor" thoughts come from to give us our chemical hit if we are experiencing wealth? More than likely, we subconsciously sabotage our wealth in order to get our chemical hit.
But I really want to be wealthy so what do i do?
I know it all sounds pretty dismal, but don't they say the first stage to enlightenment is awareness? Or did I just make that up??
I know they do say this ...
Did she just call me an onion?
So what to do? Get to know yourself. This process might take a little time, like I said it may take your whole life but lets get started ...
Lets begin the work!
So firstly get clear on the area you are working with so "poor" and "wealth" is about MONEY right? So the area of our life that is not working as well as we would like is MONEY and we would like to create change in this area.
You could also replace MONEY with RELATIONSHIP, CAREER, FAMILY, FRIENDSHIPS, CONFIDENCE, LIFE!
"What are the THOUGHTS I have about MONEY?"
Commit yourself to say a week, to flesh out and write down all of the thoughts you have about money. These may be from the past, the future, they may be about yourself with money, they may be about other people, they may be about what you can't purchase or what you can. Write down the thoughts you have about what is possible with money. Just spew out everything and anything that you THINK about money.
What are the feelings I have about money?"
And write down all of your feelings about money. These may be from the past or feelings about the future. Write down how you feel when interacting with money, how you feel accepting it, spending it or giving it away. What feelings arise when others have money? Again, spew out everything and anything you FEEL about money.
"What are the actions I take when thinking and feeling about money?"
Write all of these down. You may feel depressed so your action is over-eating. You may think "I'm not going to let money restrict me" so you go and spend the credit on your credit card. You may feel fear and so avoid doing your budget. You may think you don't deserve more money, that money is evil, that people with money are arses and so you don't ask for a payrise. Whatever you do, just write all of the ACTIONS down when you are feeling and thinking about money.
So now you've written down all of your subconscious actions around money. Here is a little clip that talks about "inspired" action and how that can be created through first aligning our thoughts.
So where to from here?
Feeling a little wiser?
Well let me tell you, this is a BIG step you've taken here and it deserves a pat on the back! (Pat, pat, pat) Not everyone wants to be aware of the icky little creatures that live in their subconscious mind. And I'm sure you've discovered some quite interesting patterns of thought, emotion and action, like "Oh my goodness do I actually think that?!"
How exciting, now that you have brought these patterns into your awareness you can now create change in this MONEY area of your life. You definitely can't change something you "don't know" that you "don't know", now can you?
Can you smell the hundred dollar bills yet?
So the next step is the Meditation process where you will access the slower brain waves of the subconscious mind, ensure these "subconscious" patterns are committed to your conscious (so you can see them coming and they don't run the show automatically) and then, the exciting bit, CREATE how you choose to think, feel and act and wire this into your subconscious so this new way of BEING becomes natural and normal and subconscious to you ...
And voila ...
Now don't forget the little people who helped you along the way to your quazillion, will you? ;-)
So kiddies, this is where I'll leave you for now, I do promise I'll come back sooner than the last time to talk you through the Meditation process.
But for now, you've got three weeks of writing to do ... so hop to it!
