Day 40 of the 40-Day Prosperity Plan

Well I made it. At the beginning I had my doubts about committing publicly to doing this 40 day prosperity plan however as it turns out it was my thoughts of you, my readers, that has kept me going until the end. So thank you for participating with me and joining my journey in exploring new thoughts of creativity and prosperity. Your likes and followings have kept me encouraged along the way. This is not the end of course but a beginning in the continued application of what I have learned until I have reached full mastery of the topics covered in theses past forty days. As one follower reminded me in her blog we are on the path from “Glory to Glory.”

” I keep my mind and thoughts off “this world” and I place my entire focus on God within as the only cause of my prosperity. I acknowledge the Inner Presence as the only activity in my financial affairs, as the substance of all things visible. I place my faith in the Principle of Abundance in action within me.”

“…my entire focus on God within…” The Spiritual path requires nothing short of complete capitulation to God. Every religious tradition I’ve read agrees on this point. Total, unequivocal, surrender.

On this last formal day of working the Plan each morning, it is right to know, this past 40 days is just the beginning. What I have learned is, this is a continual process of dedication to God alone and constant observation of ALL that is right in my world now.

How I see my world and how I see God are the same. The God I surrender to is the one of Love and only Love. The God who “requires mercy and not sacrifice.” The God who says “cast your cares on me because I care for you.” She is the constant provider of ALL Grace, Truth, Joy, Peace, Comfort, Guidance, Abundance, All under the heading of Love.

“…the stern, condemning, dictator-God fell from the sky along with his big black book listing our sins and shortcomings. The man-made god was dead, and in its place was the Universal Reality of love that had been present with us, in us, and as us from the beginning.” from, The Superbeings.

Choose this day whom you will serve, the worlds god of poverty, condemnation, sin and death or the God of Abundance, Forgiveness and Life.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10.10

The God I see wants to show me everything that is right with me, every good thing in me and my world. All of the things that are lovely, beautiful, good and true. The constant splendor of overflowing abundance right here in front of my face. This God wants to open my eyes to see the Kingdom of God paved with streets of gold and verdant pastures and the tree of Life. This and an infinite variety of Good is All that is Real and is in me and through me, surrounds me and is me. I am a Son of God, God expressing herself here and now.

Again thanks and blessings to all of you. I shall be gone for a couple of days to Mexico for a photo shoot. I’ll post again when I get back.

Day 35 of The 40-Day Prosperity Plan

“Money is not my supply. No person, place or condition is my supply. My awareness, understanding and knowledge of the All-providing activity of the Divine Mind within me is my supply. My consciousness of this Truth is unlimited, therefore my supply is unlimited.”

How I interpret outward circumstances is my clue to understanding my consciousness. Facts themselves are just facts. The number 4 is neither good or bad, it is just a fact. Four oranges are just four oranges, it is neither good nor bad. If you hate oranges and that is all you have to eat are four oranges good, bad or tolerable? Yes it is our thinking (consciousness) that make it so.

Outward circumstances: abundance or lack of money, persons, places or conditions are just the facts of the moment. Four dollars in my bank account is what ever I make it to be is the same as four hundred thousand, both amounts can be perceived as meeting my needs or not enough. It has been pointed out that there are extremely wealth people who never have enough.

Switching to a higher level of consciousness, outward conditions are not my supply. God is my supply and the substance of God is already supplied to me. There is no lack in God, no limitation whatsoever and it is all around and in me. God always gives in full measure and we continually receive in this moment everything we need.

I see buckets of good in unending quantity full of everything I need for the accomplishment of my desires. God is the source. God is the activity of my Divine Mind working in and through me for the benefit of all concerned.

This is my awareness, understanding and knowledge. I know that my redeemer lives and is living in me.

This is the fact above all appearances. There is nothing I can do about a fact. I can adjust my thinking to this fact, accept it and use it or not. Whether I eat the oranges or not makes no difference, I can be full or go hungry. As for me I will be full and Live in this abundance.

Day 28 of the 40 Day Prosperity Plan

“My Consciousness of the Spirit within me as my unlimited Source is the Divine Power to restore the years the locusts have eaten, to make all things new, to lift me up to the High Road of abundant prosperity. This awareness, understanding, and knowledge of Spirit appears as every visible form and experience that I could possible desire.”

These meditations and contemplations are the beginning for me. I was brought to this plan by the Holy Spirit as the outworking of a commitment I made three months ago to: “Seek first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to me.”

Even though I knew better, for many years I was not putting God first in my life. As a result my current financial and my Prosperity in general looks like a plague of locusts passed over my field. There is no need for details just saying it is time to start over with with my priorities in order.

The “restoration of the years the locusts have eaten” is the promise of over abundance.

“The threshing floors are full of grain; the vats overflow with new wine and olive oil. I will restore to you the years that the locusts have eaten.” [see Joel 2:18-27]

I am depending on God alone for my inspiration and the will and the energy to carry out my dreams of financial independence.

Ideas on how to accomplish this have been pouring in. I have decided to use my photography skills as a high end photographer of multimillion dollar homes for sale. It is no accident I live in one of the wealthiest towns in San Diego county [it is not because I have a lot of money right now]. I am surrounded by wealth and beautiful homes. Everything is here—I need to do the work—start from scratch and put myself out there. Plow under the stubble and ruined crop [forget the past] and plant new seeds.

I am excited about this. I can see my portfolio growing and people wanting my services. The work I do blesses others and spreads happiness all around We form strong partnerships benefiting all,

My bank account is overflowing, The ‘wine and oil’ are flowing in an unending supply through me fpr the benefit of everyone.

Thank you Lord God, you are my source and abundant supply. Thank you for being in me and I in you.

As I was re-reading the beginning of Mr Price’s book I realized I did not copy this commitment into my journal when I started as he requested I do on the first day. Well better late than never. God’s timing is always perfect because at the beginning this wouldn’t have meant as much to me as it does now.

“This day 11/25/2014 I cease believing in visible money as my supply and my support, and I view the world of effect as it truly is…simply an out picturing of my former beliefs. I believed in the power of money, therefore I surrendered my God-given power and authority to an objectified belief. I believed in the possibility of lack, thus causing a separation in consciousness from the Source of my supply. I believed in mortal man and carnal conditions, and through this faith gave man and conditions power over me. I believed in the mortal illusion created by the collective consciousness of error thoughts, and in doing so, I have limited the Unlimited. No more! This day I renounce my so-called humanhood and claim my divine inheritance as a Be-ing of God. This day I acknowledge God and only God as my substance, my supply and my support.”

Day 26 of the 40 day Prosperity Plan

“My inner supply instantly and constantly takes on form and experience according to my needs and desires, and as the Principle of Supply in action. It is impossible for me to have any needs or unfulfilled desires.”

“…instantly…” This instant, right now, for this instant, at this instant all of my needs are met. Sit right where you are now and see if this isn’t so but don’t go one instant past this one. If I look to a future “instant” they are not. I can think of many, many things and the multitude of desires I have for the next instant some of which can generate a fear response. But right now ALL is well. Everything is perfect right now. Everything is in its perfect place and in Divine Order right now.

“…constantly…”This perfect instant moves without notice, seamlessly into the next. By the time I write one letter I’m already there/here right now and the same instant of provision and perfection moves right along without me noticing, most of the time, unless I’m paying attention.

The future does not exist and the past is gone. The first words of this journal entry are a remembrance of what was once written but can only be remembered now this instant.

This study is called a ‘Plan’ which pulls me along into the next instant. I am in this instant planning my next multitude of instants to be just as this one: perfect, complete, whole, without any need or unfulfilled desires. I do have things to do in the future but I cannot do anything in the future.

And so it is. I have no place to go and nothing to do but enjoy this instant constantly while in the doing of my daily life. My “future” is directed by my will at any instant into this perfection of space and time.

Space and time do not move. Time is not running out. Time is not running anywhere, it has no place to go. It is I who move across this screen of consciousness, playing my part in the perfection of my life, interacting with other players on the immoveable screen of consciousness we call space and time. All this is in perfect harmony, grace, love, beauty, joy, peace, contentment and fulfillment.

And yet I too can Stop. When I stop everything seems to move. If I am on the Merry Go Round I move, if I get off, the Merry go round moves. Be Still and know that I am God.

This is God in action, my God-self moving me along in the perfection of Divine Providence. There is no going against the flow of this river and in each instant I am exactly in the perfect harmony weather I am conscious of it or not.

This is just the way it is.

This is It’s perfection. Everything is in its perfect place at its perfect time for the fulfillment of every need and desire. I do not need to worry about anything or get upset about anything.

I can choose to rest and flow with the river or I can fight it. One choice will bring Peace and the other will bring anxiety, pain and fear.

I am at rest, there are no mistakes, God has me right where I’m supposed to be for how can I be any place but here and now.

Physical time and space are irrelevant. I am moved along by my will activated by the larger Will.

All is perfection.

“I lift up my mind and heart to be aware, to understand and to know that the Divine Presence I AM is the Source and Substance of ALL my Good.”

The following quote from The Course in Miracles is my lesson for today:

Lesson 267 – My heart is beating in the peace of God

Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love. It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought. Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness. Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me. Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength. I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving arms. Each heartbeat calls His Name, and everyone is answered by His Voice, assuring me I am at home in Him.

“Let me attend Your Answer, not my own. Father, my heart is beating in the peace the Heart of Love created. It is there and only there that I can be at home.”

There is a sense of security in the idea of ‘Home’. The ideal Home is a place of belonging, welcoming, always provided for, a place of Peace and comfort and the feeling of being unconditionally loved and accepted. At home as a child I feel connected to “…the source and substance of all my good”

How this is experienced for each of us depends on the level of consciousness of the parents at the time they were raising us.

I think deep within every being is implanted the notion of “Home”. The exceptions to this ideal only proves its presence by the longings we feel in life for its fulfillment. We try in marriage to build what was lacking in our growing up and hope to gain unconditional love, Peace, acceptance, joy and goodness only to find we fall short of this feeling here as well.

Many of us came to the spiritual path looking for the fulfillment of this promise. After trying many different sources of comfort and experiencing failure we turn to God the Father/Mother of a new family.

As a friend told me about her experience in Church: “They all seemed so happy there.”

Thank you Mother/Father God for taking me in.

” When I am aware of the God-Self within me as my total fulfillment, I am totally fulfilled. I am now aware of this Truth. I have found the secret of life and I relax in the knowledge that the Activity of Divine Abundance is eternally operating in my life. I simply have to be aware of the flow, the radiation, of the Creative Energy, which is effortlessly pouring forth from my Divine Consciousness. I am now aware. I am now in the flow.”

It is. Everything is, right here right now, perfect. When Jesus said; ‘take no thought for tomorrow.’ he wasn’t necessarily talking about a literal 24 hours from now. He was talking about the tomorrow that is in the next second. Tomorrow is made up of countless future seconds. If I need not worry about the next second then the next 24 hours will certainly take care of itself.

If everything, every need is Abundantly and Divinely taken care of now, this instant, then it will continue on into the next and the next, on and on and on.

I am not blind to the issues we all face in this world, and I know that all those seeming troubles will be more easily solved through an attitude of surrender to this instant of perfection. If something is going wrong or traumatic our previous instants of surrender will have been good practice during those tough times.

Do I make plans for the future? of course I do. I also have needs and obligations to attend to. My past experience has taught me that all will go easier, smoother and lighter by surrendering this instant and the next and the next……..

As the lesson for today points out; “I have found the secret of life, and I relax in the knowledge that the Activity of Divine Abundance is eternally operating in my life.”

The spiritual life is one of relaxation. Here is a paraphrase from the Message of Matthew 11:28-30, Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Jesus

The proof of this in my life is that at 65 I’m still here and as I look back I can see how God has provided and protected and cared for me every step of the way. I could point out and argue about all the things that may seem negative about the past, or in the present for that matter, but that would be to easy to do. I had lessons to learn, however I’m still in the flow of Divine Perfection–old school theology calls it Divine Providence.

For a rose to produce a flower, every instant until the bloom, must be perfection. This also includes all the instants after the bloom, as the petals fall and decay to fertilize the ground to prepare the ground for the next flower. This is Perfection and Providence at work.

Blessings to all of you.

Goodness holds life from the Lord within it; truth does not possess any life except what comes through goodness, so that goodness is the soul of truth. Emanuel Swedenborg

“The Divine Consciousness that I am is forever expressing its true nature of Abundance. This is its responsibility not mine. My only responsibility is to be aware of this Truth. Therefore, I am totally confident in letting go and letting God appear as the Abundant all-sufficiency in my life and affairs.” John Randolph Price

There are two parts of us: one is dead and has no life of its own, Paul calls it ‘the body of death.’ however our entire life we have believed it is alive. The other part of us is Alive. This is the part that energizes the non-living part. As was pointed out in a couple previous posts, (here and here) a ‘live wire’ is only alive when electricity is flowing thru it. The copper and plastic have no electricity of its own. If you have ever seen a dead person you will know what I’m talking about.

“I live in God. In Him I find my refuge and my strength. In him is my identity. In him is everlasting Peace. And only there will I remember who I really am.” ACIM lesson 261

“The Divine consciousness that I am”, is the Real me. “It is Christ in me the hope of glory”, and another from Paul; “Never the less I live yet not I but Christ in me.”

Above I said there are two of me. There are not really two of me, I just think there is because I’m still attached to the old idea that my body is me, it is not. It is because my Divine Self is connected eternally to the Supreme Divinity that I can have total confidence that when I surrender to Divinity in ALL its manifestations I can rest in Peace that God will bring to me the means and the result of Abundance in my life Now.

The work and the fruit of the work are already here and everything that happens today are for my abundant benefit. All work I do is a benefit to others and there is no big or small about it. My work is perfect and complete in itself. It radiates Abundance, Goodness, Love, Peace and Joy to everyone I contact today and because of it we are all blessed. This is the fruit of the real me, The Kingdom of God within me.

As Swedenborg pointed out above the Truth has no life in it without Goodness. Abundance is the Goodness of God. If God were to point out these truths to us and never gave, this would indeed be a dead world. For God goodness and truth always act together. On that level of consciousness when we recognize the Truth of the Abundance of God’s Goodness we will manifest both.

An update: I have received employment as a caregiver which has been my work for the last 19 years and will start my next assignment this Saturday. Also I have been asked to add another day to the photo shoot I’m doing in Rosarito on December 4th this will be on the 6th in Ensenada. This is not finalized yet. God is abundantly providing and I am looking forward to more blessings from my offerings on RedBubble.

“My inner supply instantly and constantly takes on form and experience according to my needs and desires, and as the Principle of my supply in action, it is impossible for me to have any needs or unfulfilled desires.”

Yesterday I used the analogy of electricity flowing through a wire and how consciousness directs its impersonal nature to a personal result.

My body is like the electrical wire. The wire is made of copper, plastic insulation, and a plug to connect to a socket. This wire has no energy of its own and with out any energy it is not a ‘live wire’. It can do nothing. My body is only a conduit for Divine Energy. It acts when and where directed instantly and constantly to meet my needs directed by my choices. There is no exception in a healthy body. If I plug into a brilliant spot light that is what I will manifest and experience. If I plug into a black light I will experience that as well.

This energy is constant, faithful, instant and dependable. It is an impersonal Law to be used as we direct it.

From the time I was born until I decided to take the spiritual route in life I was taught I was my body. I was taught my body was in charge and to blindly follow its dictates and demands. As a screaming baby demands attention when its needs are not met, this habit continued as an insistent entitlement until I started to change my perspective towards a more ‘spiritual’ outlook on Life.

Now on the Spiritual path I am learning to consciously harness this untamed energy into more constructive avenues. At times I still unplug from the bright spotlight and plug into the black light but now I know it is my choice to do so. This is a school after all.

“Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God,” says Paul. Why? because flesh and blood are not alive. Only life can enter into life. Only things of similar frequencies can communicate. Like attracts like. My body is not alive only my inner Divinity is connected to the Divine source of ALL life.

Choose Life.

“My inner supply instantly and constantly takes on form and experience according to my needs and desires, and as the Principle of my supply in action, it is impossible for me to have any needs or unfulfilled desires.”
