Manifest Monday: The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment

The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment

By: Maria Nemeth

The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment, by Maria Nemeth, Ph.D., outlines a distinctly unique approach to one of the most dominant yet forbidden topics in modern society: money, and how we deal with it. A clinical psychologist who once lost $35,000 in a fraudulent investment scheme, Nemeth learned from that ordeal (and similar experiences of friends and associates) how most of us develop relationships with money, and the ways in which we subsequently can bring these in line with our actual dreams and realities. She initially used this knowledge to start a workshop called You and Money, which eventually attracted more than 4,500 participants and led to the development of concepts now delineated in this book.

Quoting relevant wisdom espoused by those ranging from Joseph Campbell and Ram Dass to Mark Twain and Dorothy Parker, Nemeth sets out “12 principles for personal fulfillment” designed to help readers “uncover the hidden landscape of beliefs, behavior patterns, and habits that underlie and sometimes subvert how you use money and other forms of energy.” The result is a refreshing, useful, and surprisingly accessible mixture of universal financial advice and the much rarer–but no less important–ethereal side of fiscal self-management.

Combining a complete self-help and self-discovery regimen with proven methods of money management, this powerhouse guide to prosperity presents twelve principles that will help you to

– Uncover the hidden landscape of beliefs, patterns, and habits that underlie and sometimes subvert your everyday use of money and personal resources
– Tame the dragons of driven behavior and busyholism
– Defuse fears of deprivation and scarcity
– Embrace and work through paradox and confusion
– Consciously focus your money energy
– Clear yourself to receive the energy and support of others and the universe
– Develop and stay on your personal path to abundance

Through easy-to-follow exercises and meditations, effective worksheets, and other interactive processes, Dr. Nemeth will guide you to financial success and help you manifest your special contribution to the world.

Way back, years before The Secret came out, by chance, I came across this brilliant book.

Written from more of a self-help perspective than a spiritual one, this book helped me to realize the emotions that come from our beliefs about money completely dictate whether we attract money or whether we repel it.

Two of the chapters, Scarcity Is One of Your Greatest Teachers and Releasing Old Beliefs Brings Miracles were life-changing for me after I read them (a few times!). Granted it’s not easy to release old beliefs, but you finally see that holding on to some of your beliefs may not be serving you–and may be the cause of constant financial struggle–just the awareness that it’s time to examine your beliefs about money is a good start to change.

Within the book, the author asks you to write a “money biography” detailing your financial highs and lows throughout your life.  As you write, you really do begin to see influences and then patterns. It’s quite a powerful task to undertake.

Not only do I recommend this book, but I would suggest reading (or re-reading) The Science of Getting Rich and follow it up with this book. I think both books together will really help you to begin approaching money attracting with more confidence and clarity.

Manifest Monday: William Walker Atkinson

Manifest Monday is a weekly post in which we highlight a law of attraction-related resource you might find useful.

Recently, while doing some research online, I came across a debate people where having over who originally coined the term “law of attraction”.

Someone made mention of an author named William Walker Atkinson.

While I thought I had heard of all the New Thought authors who had written about manifesting in the early part of the 20th century, I was surprised to come across a man I was unfamiliar with nor had never seen mentioned before.

Back in 1906, William Walker Atkins published a book called Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World. The book is small, but includes some very direct and useful ideas about manifesting.

If you’ve read a great deal about the law of attraction, what he writes isn’t anything you haven’t come across before. Yet, it’s still fascinating to read about manifesting from a different voice—one that lived 105 years ago.

An excerpt:

Strong expectancy is a powerful magnet. He of the strong, confident desire attracts to him the things best calculated to aid him – persons, things circumstances, surroundings; if he desires them hopefully, trustfully, confidently, calmly. And, equally true, he who Fears a thing generally manages to start into operation forces which will cause the thing he feared to come upon him. Don’t you see, the man who Fears really expects the feared thing, and the eyes of the Law is the same as if he really had wished for or desired it? The Law is operative in both cases – the principle is the same.

You can read Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World at this Web site.

There’s something else I wanted to share:

Kelly Howell, the woman who created the BrainSync meditation audios, recently tweeted some good advice:

A good way to meditate is to bring awareness to your heart and feel love. Increase feelings of appreciation and gratitude for no other reason than to resonate with that energy.

Have you found any good resources lately? Feel free to share them in the comments below.
