Building wealth consciousness from within is about turning your attention inwards and focusing on the true source of wealth and abundance which lies in your consciousness.
Most people focus all their energy and attention on outward means and conditions to try and create wealth.
The great spiritual and metaphysical truth however is that external wealth is simply an outpicturing of your wealth consciousness.
Your inner world always creates your outer world because wealth is not a physical concept.
What you have or don’t have is not the result of what you do. It is the result of what you are. We see this all the time.
Two people with exactly the same credentials. One becomes a huge success and the other becomes a complete failure.
What’s the real difference?
It’s not in what they do, who they know or some strategy or technique. It’s in their consciousness. It is the way they think, feel and act both consciously and subconsciously that sets them apart.
If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.– T Harv Ecker
If your outside world and what you have is the fruits on a tree then your consciousness is the roots.
It is the roots that give birth to the fruit. The fruit is merely a reflection of what goes on below the surface.
What is Wealth Consciousness
Human consciousness has been the subject of many philosophies and debates for centuries. What is it that makes up our consciousness or our awareness of the human experience?
Descarte famously postulated that “I think, therefore I am” – implying that it is your thoughts that make up your consciousness.
Your consciousness is more than your thoughts though. Consciousness is your awareness of your thoughts, feelings, environment and sensations (sensual perceptions).
What is wealth consciousness then?
Wealth consciousness is understanding, experience, thoughts and feelings about wealth.
Wealth refers to the idea that you have more than enough – that all your needs are met abundantly and that you lack or want for nothing.
What are your thoughts and feelings about wealth then?
We all have a laundry list of thoughts and feelings about wealth. Consciously we all desire more wealth at some level.
The challenge is that your wealth consciousness is not just made up of your conscious thoughts about it. The subconscious mind makes up most of your wealth consciousness.
These are the thoughts below your conscious everyday awareness. These thoughts reside in your beliefs which are habitual thoughts which leads to habitual feelings which lead to habitual behaviours.
To change your wealth consciousness you need to go beyond an intellectual understanding of wealth. It needs to permeate that surface level of understanding and penetrate the subconscious.
The subconscious is that ‘supercomputer’ that takes a lot of information and computes it in a way that makes sense to you.
It is quite literally what makes up your internal ‘wiring’.
It takes all the different thoughts, feelings, experiences, understandings and life events about wealth and money and brings it all together into YOUR understanding and consciousness of wealth and abundance.
Your wealth consciousness is everything you think (consciously and subconsciously) and consequently feel about the idea of having more than enough money (or every other resource).
Why You Need a Wealth Consciousness To Have a Lot of Money
The biggest mistake that most people make when they create the intention to be wealthy is that they get blinded by money.
Money and wealth is not the same thing.
Wealth is in your consciousness.
Money is a reflection of that wealth consciousness.
Building wealth consciousness from within will inevitably result in having a lot of money or success or whatever you want in abundance.
We see truly wealthy people lose their financial fortunes but because of their wealth consciousness they make it back very quickly.
We also see people with a poverty consciousness win lotteries and within a short period of time they lose it all simply because they did not have a consciousness that matched up with their external world.
Your inner world will always be reflected in your outer world.
Your external conditions will always be a reflection of your consciousness. What shows up in your life is merely the shadow that is cast by your inner consciousness.
Our journey into consciousness of wealth begins with the realization that we have already arrived!– Michael Beckwith
Working and trying to create wealth in your life is just about the most useless thing you can do.
It certainly is possible to accumulate money and stuff through hard work and effort but if that process of getting it does not change your consciousness you simply won’t get to keep it.
How To Increase Wealth Consciousness
Now that we’ve established that building wealth consciousness from within is the only way to truly get wealthy, how do you do it?
How do you increase your wealth consciousness?
In loose terms you will need to change who you are because who you are at the moment is reflected in everything you have (or don’t have) in your life.
You need to change the way you think and feel about money and abundance. You need to change your beliefs, your habits and your actions.
When you focus on making these changes consciously and you do it for long enough it starts to permeate into your subconscious mind.
Only once these changes permeate into your subconscious mind does it change your consciousness.
Here are 7 steps to increase wealth consciousness:
1.Understand The Truth About Abundance
A thorough understanding can lead to a change in consciousness. The truth about abundance is that you live in an abundant universe.
There is more than enough of everything in this universe. You are an integral part of this universe and this abundance is not only your birth right but it is a natural part of life.
Nature and life itself is abundant and you are part of nature and life.
There is an abundance of money or any other resource you may want. There is more than enough for everyone.
The issue is never whether there is enough or not. It is only a matter of attracting and manifesting it in your own life experience.
2. Focus on Your Inner World
Most people are consumed by what they can and should do in their outer world. It ends up draining them emotionally and spiritually.
This depletes their most valuable resource which is their own authentic energy.
Doing more and working harder is rarely the solution but unfortunately it is the only ‘formula’ that most people know.
It is always your inner world that creates your outer world. When you turn your attention inwards you can create the external changes with more ease, less stress and greater joy.
3. Practise Love or Above
The idea of Love or Above comes from Christie Marie Sheldon’s wealth consciousness program. It is based on Dr. Richard Hawkins’ scale of human consciousness.
This scale of consciousness gives numerical values (based on kinetic testing) to different emotions.
The emotion of guilt measures at 30 while the emotion of fear measures at 100. The highest emotions on the scale are love, joy, peace and enlightenment.
Love measures at 500 and living at 500 or above means you tap into the highest level of human consciousness.
Living at these levels means you leave behind most of these lower vibration thoughts that only drag you down.
So, what does that have to do with building wealth consciousness from within?
When you live at these highest levels of consciousness you ‘match up’ with Spirit – the true Source of everything and this allows you to effortlessly connect with abundance.
4. Focus On Giving and Value
Building wealth consciousness from within requires a completely opposite approach to the traditional ideas of creating wealth.
Your focus can not be on what you get. It has to be entirely on giving.
When your focus shift on to what can you give your consciousness shifts from scarcity to abundance because abundance is an energy that is always giving.
Imagine that there is a dispenser inside you. Every time you give away one thing, two things come back so that this dispenser is constantly growing and expanding – but only when you give away what is inside it.
This is a powerful analogy for how wealth consciousness works. Shift your focus on giving of yourself.
Always look for ways to add value. How can you add value to your job, your family, your community…to yourself.
5. Create an Intention
When you create an intention to create greater wealth and abundance in your life you change the ingrained images you have in your mind.
By thinking deeply on what you really want in your life – not what you think you deserve or what you think you can have.
Getting clear on exactly what you want in your life and creating the intention to manifest that life shifts your consciousness.
Building wealth consciousness from within comes from shifting your internal ideas of what you want and what you think you can have and deserve.
6. Eliminate Limiting Beliefs
We all have limiting beliefs about money to some extent. These beliefs are nothing more than thoughts that you thought over and over again until it became a habitual thought.
You then have life experiences that you match up against these beliefs and they become ingrained even deeper.
It can even become part of your identity – that which you think you are.
If being poor or middle class becomes your identity then you have a lot of work to be done on clearing your limiting beliefs about money.
Starting by identifying your limiting beliefs is the first and most important step. Awareness in and of itself can help you change – especially when you notice how silly some of these beliefs are or the fact that you simply got them from your parents.
EFT (tapping) is a power and proven technique that can help you eliminate some of these ingrained beliefs about money and wealth.
Building wealth consciousness from within often start with being aware of your own negative thoughts and beliefs about money and wealth.
7. Rejoice in Wealth and Prosperity
People with a poverty consciousness do not like ‘the rich’. They are always critical of those who have more and they tend to be jealous of anyone who gets something they don’t have
People with a wealth consciousness rejoice in others’ wealth and success. They understand that of someone else manifest wealth it is because of their consciousness.
Stop criticizing wealthy people. Stop being envious of others’ success.
Start being truly happy for anyone who has success or anyone who gets or has something you want.
When you do that you say ‘yes’ to the universe and allow it to come to you. When you criticize or condemn wealth in any you close the door and do not allow it into your life.
