Being Weal t hy st art s in t he mind. It starts there. If wealth was just a mind-set, than everyone would think ?I am wealthy? and voila their bank account would increase. Unfortunately, it does not matter how many times I affirm to myself that I am wealthy, unless I take it a step further, I will always just be ?affirming?. For example, let?s take being happy. When you are truly happy and you feel good, you act differently than when you do not. You may have more energy, you choose to do things that will amplify the feeling such as committing to a healthy diet and exercise program, or choosing to dress in clothes that make you feel good. You may walk taller, smile more, laugh more, and look for ways to find more joy. When you do not feel so good, these things tend to take a back seat. Maybe you sleep more, exercise less, care less about going out and enjoying life, dress more casually or stay in your pajamas or sweat pants. Maybe you get upset at things more easily, or always have something to complain about. Things become completely different because of the actions that you take based on how you feel. The feeling of being happy, or not, started as a mind-set but turned into your state of being by the actions you chose because of how you were feeling. Becoming truly wealthy happens the same way. When you affirm that ?I am Wealthy? then go about your day thinking, speaking, and acting as if you are wealthy, you are immersing yourself in this new reality and creating more opportunities for wealth to come into your life. But the key is that you are taking action as if you already are wealthy. You are allowing wealth to become your state of being. I cannot affirm that ?I am wealthy? and then go about the rest of the day complaining how expensive things are, or that I cannot afford the things I want, or being envious of those who can. Your Wealth Consciousness is how you feel, speak, and act surrounding Wealth. The stronger you can develop this, the wealthier you truly will become ? allowing it to become your permanent state of being. So, how do we do this? How do we turn a wealthy mind-set into a state of being, if our present circumstances are telling us otherwise? That is a great question. What if I told you all you have to do, through repetition of actions, is believe with all your heart that you are wealthy, and adopt this as truth by starting to act as your wealthy self now - despite your present circumstances - and within time, your circumstances will change to match your new ?belief? system. Despite your current circumstances, you start to appreciate money, appreciate the high-ticket items that you earlier may have complained about not be able to afford. You started planning that vacation as if you already had the money, or picking out your new car, new clothes, or that dream house you always wanted. Instead of complaining and worrying about not having enough money for things, you start worrying about what you are going to do with all the money you have! You truly start to immerse yourself and take actions based as if you have all the money you desire ? right now. And within time, all of your present circumstances will disappear and new ones will form to support this new way of being!! How do we know this? It sounds great in theory, but where is the proof that this will work. This is the best part yet ? because Science tells us so and it is called Neuroplasticity. Recently named "one of the most extraordinary discoveries of the twentieth century" by Canadian psychiatrist Norman Doidge, neuroplasticity refers to ability of the brain to alter its structure in response to experience. Neuroscience demonstrates that the brain is constantly forming new neural pathways, removing old ones, and altering the strength of Page 7 - August , 2015
