I have been lucky enough to know many wealthy people – both spiritually and financially.
I know millionaires who have nice, big houses, several luxury cars, travel the world on first class flights, stay in five star luxury hotels and have all the pleasures money can buy.
I also know spiritual people who are indifferent towards money, who have somehow decided that money is “bad” or that they should renounce worldly possessions in order to follow a spiritual path.
On the one hand I’ve seen that money itself doesn’t bring happiness, although it certainly makes life comfortable, even luxurious. And it is FUN! It has become clear to me that money can buy pleasures but not happiness.
On the other hand, those renouncing their worldly possessions or ignoring the material world are often struggling financially, suppressing their material desires, and experiencing feelings of frustration and envy when it comes to wealth.
Personally, I see myself somewhere in the middle. I am certainly interested in money, how it works, what it can do for us and how we can share it in society. I am also a spiritual person and I have certainly experienced my fair share or frustration and envy when it comes to money and wealth.
I can by no means claim that all my financial blocks are now cleared, or even that I am where I want to be financially. However, I know that I have learned a lot over the years, that my perception and experience of abundance, prosperity and wealth continues to grow and evolve, and that my spiritual and financial understandings are now much more aligned than they have ever been before.
This book was born out of that vision and out of my passion to teach and to share what I have learned about money and wealth over the last 10 years or so.
When I started writing, it was simply for some friends I had met at a spiritual course, who wanted to have a better understanding of finances and improve their financial situation. While I was writing, the book began to take on a character of its own. It grew in scope and I decided the accumulated knowledge was worth sharing.
That’s when I decided to create an book and make it available as a free download. It is my vision and desire that together we can share our knowledge and learn from each other;that each of us willstart to follow our own path and we all may experience financial abundance in the process.
Being prosperous and living abundantly is about more than just having money. It is about your journey of creating prosperity and abundance in all areas of your life and, most importantly, who you are becoming in the process.
What if you changed your perspective and focus from creating and manifesting money to manifesting the opportunities, the people, the knowledge and the growth in yourself that will help you to create this money?
That is what this book is inviting you to do: changing your perspective on how you approach wealth in your life.
Throughout this book, you’ll find some personal stories about abundance, wealth and prosperity in life. You’ll discover:
- Why you should be wealthy
- Spiritual teachings on wealth
- How to find clarity on your vision and your desires
- How to remove your financial blocks
- Exercises and processes to increase Wealth Consciousness
- Ideas and tips to organise your personal finances
- How your personality influences your relationship to wealth – and how you can benefit from it.
This book is divided into two parts. In Part One: Wealth Consciousness you will learn how your attitude and your thoughts affect how much wealth you have in your life. You will find a whole lot of exercises to help you recognize your current attitude towards money and to understand what a change in perspective could mean to your life. For your convenience, a summary of all the exercises is included at the end of this book, in case you would like to print them and use them for future reference.
When you do these exercises, take your time. They are designed to make you think about how you approach abundance, prosperity and money in your life. The more effort you put into these exercises, the more you will get out of them. Be honest with yourself – these exercises are not for anyone to check, they are only for you. But the more you put in, the more you will get out!
If you have the time, write the answers down. It will help you clarify your answers and if you review your notes later on, you will be able to clearly see the progress you have made! If you find it difficult to answer the questions, take your time, contemplate on the question – and once again be honest with yourself. Why is it difficult for you to answer this question? Are you getting stuck? Is there something you’re avoiding or you don’t want to see about yourself?
You could print out the book and use the exercise pages as a reference. Or you could even start a separate notebook with your thoughts around abundance, wealth and your vision for life. You will have all your ideas in one spot and will be able to see what progress you’ve made and the recurring or changing ideas that you have.
In Part Two: Financial Literacy, you will discover how money actually works. Once you start to understand how money works, you can begin influencing it and working towards your goals. You will also discover how your unique personality and characteristics influence your relationship with money, and what you can do to optimize it.
You’ve probably heard the story: give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.
As we get caught up in our day-to-day routine, we tend to think about the fish.
However,what if true abundance and prosperity were to focus on the opportunities, people and knowledge that teach us about ourselves and our own personal path to abundance in our lives?
With 7 billion people in the world, there are 7 billion different ways of experiencing and creating wealth. Or even more!The intention for this book is to help you find YOUR way. YOUR way of experiencing abundance and creating wealth that suit your personality and your skills.
Finding our own path doesn’t mean reinventing the wheel. It is great and beneficial to find a mentor or a role model to get started on your journey.
But in my own personal experience, and that of many of my friends and associates, there will be a point along your journey, where the path you have followed does not feel right any more. Maybe something doesn’t suit your personality, or you get stuck because you don’t have the right skills.
That is when we start to carve out our own path. We start to combine the pieces of the puzzle that we have collected on our journey and put them together to form our very own prosperity mosaic.
