It is now known that you can build new neural pathways in your brain with constant focus. The most efficient way of achieving change is with meditation using guided imagery and visualisation and now scientists have strongly suggested that this can be applied to financial success.
In their book, How God Changes Your Brain, researchers Andrew Newberg , neuroscientist, and Mark Robert Waldman , therapist, have shown that in their words: the more you meditate on a specific object” be it God, or peace, or financial success , “the more active your thalamus becomes, until it reaches a point of stimulation where it perceives thoughts in the same way that other sensations are perceived. In other words, until it becomes part of your Comfort Zone and your reality. The aim, for those wishing to achieve financial success, is to visualise financial success clearly in your mind so that this vision actually changes your brain.
This Mind Matters News and the next one are about increasing Abundance and Prosperity and address the mental barriers and subconscious limiting beliefs holding us back from achieving this. The Wealth Pack (including explanation, goals and meditations) is available to buy from the CALM Shop both as a download and also as two CDs.
We Can Easily Sabotage Ourselves
If our mind is filled with fears, doubts, expectations, intentions, values and beliefs that contradict any financial goal we have then this will directly affect any financial outcome. You can experience fears of success or failure, trying and failing, not being good enough all causing stress and anxiety. All this negativity which is deeply embedded in the subconscious mind will behave as negative habits and sabotage us in our endeavours. We need to change our inner paradigm to be able to change our outer financial reality.
Some Limiting Personal Beliefs Can Help To Create Poverty Seminar
It takes money to get money
Best things in life are free
Money is the root of all evil
Money = too much responsibility
I am not worthy
Takes hard work to earn money
Can’t take it with you
Money isn’t everything
Need training / education
Money isn’t spiritual
Can’t buy love
My karma is to be poor
A Camel cannot pass through the eye of a needle
Think about your business for a moment. Is working harder and longer the key to being more financially successful? You will probably answer …no, but what do you really believe? If your subconscious mind really believes you need to work harder, then guess what , that’s what you will consistently do in an effort to be more financially successful.
What about your upbringing and your parents’ thoughts about money! Research has shown that if you have (or had) parents or grand-parents who were brought up in the Depression and had the attitude of never spend money until you have it to spend that the offspring (and their offspring) would do one of two things: either reject what they were taught and do the extreme opposite , having as many credit cards as possible or never spend money until they had it to spend. There seemed to be no middle ground. I am reminded of that often made statement to children we can’t afford it ! You can see the consequences of that statement. A better answer is we choose not to buy that right now.
Remember that your conscious mind acts upon what you have in the subconscious so it will form evidence and opinions which support the subconscious beliefs, even though you don’t want the belief. Once you have a belief embedded in the subconscious, which then is deep in your memory, you will act on it ,, just like a habit until you have changed the neural pathway and the memory.
In John Assaraf’s words, we all have C.R.A.P. Conflicts, Resistance, Anxiety, And Other Problems like procrastination and pessimism. Is it easy to change and can we do it? Yes Sandy has been teaching this since 1989 and tens of thousands of people have successfully learned the techniques. Is there resistance to change? Of course what is procrastination and pessimism if it is not resistance?
Remember, the job of the subconscious mind is to keep you where you are, that is with all the habits and beliefs that you have right now. So, of course it will fight our every effort to achieve success. However with the mind in the Alpha and Theta state using goals and meditation we can succeed in changing the old neural pathways to be the ones we want.
What Are You Worth?
How much money per year do you believe you are worth? Is it $50,000 or $100,000 or more? If you have a defined figure, know that implicitly your brain will keep you there. It will not be interested in any actions that suggest that you are worth more or make more. Neural Resonance is when your conscious mind (12%) and your subconscious mind (88%) are in sync with each other this means your brain is working for you and not in conflict. So what is the best course of thought as far as your earning power is concerned? Don’t have a ceiling that sells you short!
Neuroscience research has confirmed that if you have a ceiling as to your ability to make money this very fact is sufficient to make you feel stuck. John Assaraf calls this your Expectancy Point.
Your Expectancy Point
Assaraf says : One of the most fascinating discoveries in brain research is that over time, deep within your implicit brain, you develop your own personal Expectancy Points,’ such as where you expect’ your income to be, the kind of car you expect to drive, whether you expect to have a lifestyle of luxury or more-of-the-same, even things such as your normal’ weight, whether you expect to live past a certain age and the dynamics of your relationships.
There is not much sense in having an expectancy point’ which doesn’t serve you if you don’t want to maintain your current normal’ level. If you attempt only consciously to increase your expectancy point you will continue to be dragged back to what has been until now your normal’ level. Why? Because your subconscious mind with its neural pathway of your normal’ level drags you back again and so you feel trapped! You have probably been using all sorts of beliefs, habits and oh-so-many excuses to maintain your expectancy point’, yet this is all done unconsciously as it is within your comfort zone. Your conscious mind might try to argue that of course you want a higher expectancy point but really it is your so much more powerful subconscious mind which is driving you.
Can this be changed? Can you prevent your expectancy point from holding you back? Absolutely! You have the ability to use neuroscience to your advantage and put in a new neural pathway and hence increase your ceiling work towards a new expectancy point in your subconscious which, when you think like that, will also be in your conscious mind. Both your minds are then on the same track!
The wordAbundance has been used deliberately. As has been stated before, when we are abundant, we have enough. It can be applied to many things in life`s love, money, health, relationships, humour, compassion, to name a few. It can often be in conflict with money and that is why it is important to have a life purpose and work towards that purpose with balanced goals (not all the effort going on money) then you will truly Create Happiness Intentionally. That is the purpose of the CHI 5 day/4 night live in Seminar.
So, know that whatever negative habits, limiting beliefs, lack of self-worth, inherited challenges or low expectancy points you may have, in working towards Abundance and Prosperity, there is a scientifically proven way of changing these negative neural pathways and establishing new ones which will assist you.
All the best
The Law of Attraction says to live in the knowledge that you are getting what you want. It may seem like a feel-good philosophy and nothing more. You might think it is worth considering, but not something that exists in nature. However, the Law of Attraction is based upon the science of physics.
The Law of Attraction and quantum physics shows us that all in the universe is made of energy. This includes both what we call “solid” objects and something as ethereal as thoughts. The truth is that even so-called solid objects have a high percentage of empty space in them. They are made up of energy. The Law of Attraction takes this fact into account.
The Law of Attraction is based upon the fact that the energy in our bodies and minds are always vibrating. This makes wavelengths of different frequencies. We send these frequencies out from ourselves into the larger world.
The world itself-in fact, the whole universe-is all made of energy as well. The whole thing is constantly vibrating. It is always full of possibilities. Our individual frequencies go into this vast ocean of movement. The Law of Attraction can affect this.
Once our frequencies are emitted, they attract frequencies that are like them. So, you are constantly using the Law of Attraction to bring things to you. If you are sending out negative vibrations, you will not like what returns to you. This is because, by the Law of Attraction, those negative frequencies are clumping together with others of their kind.
You can deliberately use the Law of Attraction to focus your thoughts and your being on a positive outcome. The frequencies you emit will stick with other good ones and return to you as a joyful result. This is not simply a matter of wishful thinking.
It involves living in the state you choose for yourself. You don’t need to start out with millions of dollars in the bank to feel wealthy. You can think, speak, and act like a millionaire. You just need to believe that’s what you are deep inside. The Law of Attraction will do the rest.
You need to feel excited by your choices for the Law of Attraction to work well. That is because the level of excitement determines the level of vibration you are sending out. If you choose something in a half-hearted way, it will return to you in the same way.
However, if you are excited by your choice, you will increase the power of your vibrational frequency. The results will come rolling in. You must do what you can to maintain your excitement. This will bring your dreams into reality by the Law of Attraction.
On the other hand, if you complain about something, or fight against something, that is the thing you will bring to yourself. The Law of Attraction works this way because the universe only has a way of grouping like with like. Your negativity about a subject will return to you as more negative results for that subject.
Several people with doctorates in physics have studied the power of the Law of Attraction. Many of them believe that the mind controls the universe. They believe that this is done through the Law of Attraction.
