Lack is the Cause?

March 2, 2016
Hi Everyone,

What if “love of money” isn’t the cause? What if “lack of money” is the cause?

I was taught that love of money is the root of all evil. Yes, I know this is a misquote, but, it is the message most of us were taught.

Consider
Take a look at the problems in your life, in your family, in your community. How many of them would be solved if there were certain amounts of money at hand that one could freely use?

As you consider this possibility, sit with what you see, feel and are thinking for a moment or two.

How would things be if the money was at hand, right here and now, to freely use to ease situations and circumstances?

Take a moment or two to consider how things might change. Recognize the feelings and thoughts that come with this possibility. Which of these is habitual, what you think and feel automatically when you consider money as a problem solver?

Toxic money
I keep saying “freely use” because money that comes with:

  • Struggle
  • or charges like interest
  • or conditions like rules as to how and when it is to be used

creates a toxic situation or worsens an already toxic situation. Money that comes with the above conditions is called toxic money.

Assignment
Before we go to the angels and Mother/Father God about money, let us get clear about our willingness to admit that love of money—living in the overflow of all the good that comes come the Source (Mother/Father God)—might be exactly what is needed in our world at the moment.

For this next week, every time lack of money shows up in your life as a habitual thought or action, or as something you automatically think and feel, or as the only choice at the moment, immediately switch to thinking:

  • “I live in the overflow of all good. Lack, I don’t know how you got into my world, but you’re aren’t welcome here. Leave.”
  • “I love money. The more I receive, the more I can give. Yeah! Yeah! Fabulous!”
  • Allow yourself to feel joy, peace and ease.
  • And, allow yourself to recognize your hesitation and your negativity about doing this.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Making Bigger Bread Baskets

April 21, 2015

Hi Everyone,

After thinking about the comments Rose, good tidings angel, made April 17, 2015 on https://www.facebook.com/asktheangelscoaching  about human’s needing bigger bread baskets, I finally understand a sermon heard many years ago.

The pastor described God’s blessings as being a gigantic ocean from which all were free to take as much as desired. He explained that it didn’t matter how much any person took because the ocean was huge, and God constantly replenished it so that it was impossible for the Blessing’s Ocean to ever dry up or disappear.

He went on to explain that some people used tiny cups to withdraw from this ocean, some used buckets, some used bath tubs and some used containers like rivers and lakes. Whatever size container a person selected, that’s the amount of blessings they received.

In other words, it is we humans who decide how much we have. We do this when we select the size of our container.

Sometimes, we call those who select really huge containers selfish.

 Selfish People
As you know from reading From Barbara’s Pen published Saturday, April 18, 2015 on https://www.facebook.com/asktheangelscoaching Rose’s comments caused my thinking about those folks called selfish to change.

I no longer think of them as selfish but as people who know how to have larger bread baskets/containers then most of us. They, also, know how to maintain and expand their containers.

My recall of the pastor’s talk has caused me to decide to enlarge the size of some of my containers.

Not all because, at the moment, I am content with most of my life.

Yes. I know. I made a statement in my book, Put Hand to Plow, that “It isn’t change, it’s changes, plural, meaning plenty”.

As I bring forth larger bread baskets/containers and use them to withdraw larger amounts of God’s blessings from the Blessings Ocean, I am prepared to have both expected and unexpected changes show up. That’s okay. With the help of the angels, I can handle change. So can you.

I invite each of you to select an area of your life where receiving more blessings would be very helpful. I invite you to decide to expand the size of the container you’re using to claim and receive blessings in this area.

For example, you might decide to expand the container that brings you physical health, or you may choose to expand the container for friendships, or you could select a larger container for receiving housing blessings.

Those of you who are familiar with the creative process that I explained in Put Hand to Plow know that working with the Law of Mental Equivalence and the Law of Congruency is needed to get this task done.

Since none of this is as easy as it sounds, we go to the angels for help.

Angels of All of Us

Angels,
We give thanks for your presence and for your work on our behalf.

We are so very grateful for the information that tells us that we can have what those we call selfish have.

It is a relief to realize that they are not at fault for our lack, but we are. It is so awesome to realize that we can fix this; we can eliminate the lack by being open to receiving more of God’s blessings.

It is so fantastic to understand that God isn’t withholding from us, that it is we who are holding back from receiving. We have limited the size and the number of our bread baskets. We go to the Blessings Ocean with small containers.

As of right here and right now, we let go of our small containers. We form images of much larger ones. Our images are very clear: our containers are very, very large. We easily double the number of containers we possess.

We go to the Blessing’s Ocean and hold out all of our containers. We absolutely know and expect our containers to rapidly fill, and then overflow with God’s blessings. This was promised long ago, that our cups would run over.  We claim that promise now.

Angels of all of us,
As we do the work of imaging bigger and more containers, we know that you are with us and that you provide ideas, information and the energy to do this work.

We feel your presence, your protection, your support and your nurturance.

We hear you whisper, “All is well. Continue. Continue. Grow. Evolve. Expand. All is well.”  It is so fabulous to hear you, to know that you are right here with us.

Wow! How great it is to grow in the presence of those who serve God.

How awesome to stand holding our bread baskets out, watching them fill, seeing them overflow.

How fantastic to live in overflow!  How even more fabulous to understand that living with overflow is what God meant for us to do!

Thank you, angels of all of us. Thank you. What an amazing experience! Thank you for helping us to become greater than what we were.

And so it is.

Blessed be,

Barbara
