Day 60 –

Yesterday I received wonderful news and was so in awe of the reception of the news as it was shared that I forgot to write Day 60!!

This has been a momentous Campaign for me. So many wonderful delights, and yesterday I received word I am now the new Senior Pastor of the Center for Spiritual Living, Baltimore, Maryland.

It means moving across the continent, returning to the United States, giving up family of choice and friends here. It means BIG changes in my life. Changes that I initiated by being willing to risk.

What are you willing to risk to have what you desire? Definitely we need to risk giving up the old consciousness for the new. We need to risk stepping off the cliff of the known into the unknown.

What I know for sure is that when we are willing to take the risk, and take the first step, the whole Universe rushes forward to support us in our endeavors!!

I thank you for joining me on this adventure in prosperity consciousness. I KNOW for you that Life is blessing you greatly. Open your arms, your heart, and your mind to receive.

Prosperous Blessings to you, Rev. Angelica

Day 59 –

Tomorrow is our last day of Campaign #6. In the past 60 days I have been given so many gifts. Gifts of money, food, help, clothing, things for my dog, a trip to Hawai’i, a trip to the East Coast and awesome possibilities – it has been so wonderful to open my heart and mind to receive more of Life’s blessings – and experience the blessings continually flowing in!!

My Intention for this campaign was to be debt-free by the end. Am I? No – not quite. I could be depressed because I set that Intention and “it didn’t work,” but I choose not to bring that energy into my process. I know it’s about my consciousness!! In Hawai’i, the oriental people have a tradition of paying all their debts, in cash, before the New Year. So this is my new goal – to continue to expand my consciousness to receive and be debt-free before December 31.

Now – what was your intention and how did you do? Did you consciously participate in the Campaign? Did you do the work suggested? How have you changed because of it? What have you been focusing on?

For something fun today – let me share a great little article:

Quick! What's the very first thing that springs into your mind when you read or hear the M-word? (M-o-n-e-y.)

For many people that first thing isn't necessarily pleasant. And for others there's a fleeting flicker of delight as they imagine having plenty of it, winning the lottery or the like, which just as quickly fades into a more familiar "not enough" feeling instead.

It's not surprising. After all, most of us have been carefully trained, taught, even indoctrinated our whole lives to believe that money is scarce, that it's hard to come by, that only people who have any ever get more, that it's the cause of all the world's troubles ... and on and on and on.

Loads of heavy baggage packed with negativity on the simple subject of something we really cannot do without.

And it's all just so SERIOUS and HEAVY and ... ugh.
So since we already KNOW that we attract/create our own experience through our thinking, how about we just UNpack some of that mental baggage and ditch some of the seriousness so we can stop creating and attracting more stuff like THAT?
How about we just lighten up and have some FUN with all of this? When you're having fun your thoughts aren't focused on lack of anything, right? ;-)

For myself, I have decided that whenever the M-word comes up in conversation or my own thinking in any way that doesn't thoroughly delight me, I am going to quietly, secretly substitute another word — a silly word that has NONE of those negative connotations.

I've been doing this for a while now with family and friends, too (not just quietly and secretly), and it's not only fun, it highlights immediately just how silly all the negativity is.

I highly recommend the practice!

You can choose any word that strikes you as ridiculous. For me, the funniest word in the English language (and I don't know why) is this:

(I know, I know. Totally juvenile. Pretty much the humor of a seven-year-old. And that's probably why it works so well!)

Try it for yourself:
"I'd like to have a new car, but I don't have enough underpants."
"Invest in THAT? No way! It's too risky. I could lose all my underpants."
"Do you think underpants grow on trees?"
"I like the job but the underpants are awful."
"Underpants can't buy happiness."
"He's got more underpants than he knows what to do with."
"Never throw good underpants after bad."
"Underpants aren't everything, you know."
"I wouldn't do that for love nor underpants."
"Always be sure to save some underpants for a rainy day."
"No matter how hard I try or what I do, I just NEVER have enough underpants."

Oh, I could go on and on! In fact, a couple of days ago I introduced this scathingly brilliant concept to my mom and brother, and we sat out on Mom's patio playing with it until we had tears streaming down our faces from laughing at ourselves so hard.
(I suppose goofiness runs in the family. Later that day when Mom said she was getting ready to throw a load of "delicates" in the washer we accused her of money laundering.)

Ah, yes: We live in a world of infinite underpants!

Day 58 –

Today being Friday the 13th, I started thinking about superstitions about money…

Money is dirty
Rich people aren’t happy
If I have money, my friends won’t like me.
Money corrupts people
It’s better to give than receive

And of course the infamous: Money is the root of all evil.

What superstitions about money do you have? Superstitions can be powerful because somewhere in you they resonate - they support (or possibly contradict) a belief you may have deep down.

Let yourself journal about any superstitions that might be influencing you. Then cross them out and write an affirmation to fill their place in your subjective mind.

Day 56 –

Read this as if YOU wrote it – with all the feeling and belief you can achieve!

My Own Shall Come To Me

From far and near my own shall come to me.
Even now it is coming to me and I receive it.
My own is now manifesting itself to me, and I see and know its presence.
My own shall know and respond to me.
My own cannot be kept from me, neither can I keep my good away from me.
I receive my good NOW.
My own shall find me. No matter where I go, it will follow and claim me.
I cannot hide myself from my own.
My own shall come to me, even though I deny it; for there is nothing in me that can hinder it from entering and taking possession of my Soul.
My own is now expressed.
And so it is.

Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Day 55 –

A good day to pray:

I ______________, recognize the wonderfully working powers of The Divine in my life today! I know this power is both love and law. Love points the way, and Law makes the way possible.

I believe in the possible, not the impossible. Therefore I know everything I need for my highest good and greatest joy is at hand. I am open to receive all of Life’s blessings now and forever more.

My financial life is now blessed beyond measure. I see myself fear free. No longer do I worry about how and when. Everything is always provided. I trust – I absolutely trust.

I see myself serving my world in my increased abundance. It is such a great feeling to be able to give and to know I am doing something for the greater good of all.

As I celebrate my abundance – I also celebrate the abundance of everyone on the Thank God We’re Rich Campaign. I am so grateful to be doing my part in elevating the consciousness of humanity.

I release these words into the Law of Mind with Love – knowing the Law always works. And so It is.

Day 54 –

6 more days until the end of this Round. How are you doing?

You might be thinking – “6 more days – well, I didn’t manifest all I had intended in the beginning – might as well quit now.”

“It doesn’t work – might as well quit now” is a common phrase among those of us who’ve been brought up with ‘fast food thinking.’ We want something and we want it now, and if it doesn’t come quickly, we give up. We might even say things to excuse our giving up like “Well, God must not have meant for me to have my desires at this time” or “It wasn’t meant to be.”

Let me remind you that there is nothing ‘out there’ that withholds our good. It is totally us. Perhaps we didn’t get committed to the idea and didn’t do the work necessary, which really means we didn’t believe it was possible in the first place. Spiritual Law says whatever we believe, is what we manifest!

‘Fast food thinking’ carries within it the idea of getting something for little or no work, and sorry, folks, this just isn’t true. Everything requires work – first of all in consciousness.

Now for some good news: ‘Fast food thinking’ also has within it the concept of ‘at the last minute.’ Think of the old western movies, where the wagons are circled, the occupants are outnumbered by the bad guys surrounding them, and suddenly you hear bugles and John Wayne and the calvary come riding over the nearest mountain! Everyone breathes a collective sigh of relief. They are saved!

If you think back over your financial experiences, I’ll bet you find some instances where, at the very last minute, everything came together, and you were able to breathe again.

There is no time in the Universe – only in our minds – and who knows if right before you quit the manifestation was ready to pop through!!

So – don’t quit! Instead think ‘ Yes! I still have 6 days to prove this stuff works!! I know nothing is impossible to those who believe!

Day 53 –

Listening to our self talk is a good way to tune into what could be blocking our greater good.

Yesterday I asked you to listen for “I can’t afford it” or variations of that phrase. What other excuses for limitation are you using?

In your journal, draw a line down the middle of the page, top to bottom … on the left hand side, write down some of those limiting phrases. On the right hand side, write down their opposite. For instance:

I can’t afford it. I choose not to spend the money now.

After you make your lists, read the two sides - -which one feels more powerful?? Now cross out the limiting side and set your intention to use only power full phrases!!

I KNOW we are a lot more abundant than we think!
