Your Infinite Power to Be Rich
Let’s talk about More Energy More Money. I am having an interesting insight this morning as I read a book called ‘Your Infinite Power To Be Rich’ by Joseph Murphy, which is available on Amazon. I ran into this book at someone else’s house actually during a recent trip to New York, staying in an AirBandB.com apartment in Brooklyn. It happened to be on the top of the shelf and I grabbed it while I was taking a moment at one point or another.
It’s one of these books that is about the principles of attraction very similar to books like ‘The Secret’ and movies like ‘The Secret’, and some of my own literature including ‘The Life Summit’. And what I like about it is that it’s written in a very different way because it was written in 1968 and in this particular case it has a much more Christian, religious overlay.
And my insight this morning is that so much of this is fantastic, powerful and true and that I have different language to express the same thing! It spends a lot of time talking about ‘divine abundance’ and ‘divine surplus’. I would say something similar in a different way.
The Energy of Money
Here is how I would say this. It is a fact to me that money is simply a form of energy and there are a variety of forms of energy in the world:
- There is electrical energy which powers the lights;
- There is physical energy or kinetic energy which is what we use to run around;
- There is emotional energy which is how we interact as humans, it’s that energy you get from a great hug or a good conversation which makes you feel all better;
- There is the energy associated with status, a sort of ego’s energy if you will, like the way you feel when you have won an award and you feel terrific.
- And so on ..
And there is obviously the lack of energy which is when you feel bad, you feel low, you lack clarity and you lack abundance and so forth. And I’ve gone into that whole thing in great detail in a book called ‘Creativity and Innovation’.
The Source of Energy
So if we know that energy is money and we are after more money then clearly we need more energy!
The question is where does that energy come from?
Well there are different ways of thinking about this. One way of thinking about it is that that energy comes from you.
I am a believer in the idea that energy comes through you as there are simply too many things in my life that can’t really be explained any other way.
- Where does the energy which becomes all of my books come from, the insights and the ideas? I feel like there is a co-creation going on at the very least.
- Where does the energy come from that becomes art work, and music, and songs, and literature, and new ideas for technology, and business, and leadership and parenting, and everything else.
Where does that energy come from?
I think it comes from God, from Spirit, from the Muse or from non-physical elsewhere. This energy comes through you and into the world. During this process, you can co-create with that energy and your own intention, your own mind, your own vision.
So if energy comes through you and if you want more energy to be expressed (e.g. as money), how do you do that?
Connecting to the Source
Simply put, energy comes through clear consistent and persistent connection to spirit.
What that means is if I start a day and I just jump in and I let the day run me, in other words I am running someone else’s agenda for me, I am responding to client needs, or parenting needs, or children needs, or whatever is around me that is banging on my door to get my attention, if I just let my day happen in response to that I have the day that happens to me. However, if I stop and sit, and pray or meditate, or do whatever my ritual is to connect to that extraordinary source of infinitely abundant Devine energy, the same energy that grows every blade of grass in my lawn and every tree in the forest, that inexhaustible expression of creativity. That same energy, if I can connect to that, and bring that insight, and that connection, and that energy to my day then surely my day brings more energy than I can just bring on my own. And when that energy comes through me abundance follows as a natural expression. i.e. money is a simple form of energy. The more creative I am, the more insightful I am, the more connected I am, the more money shows.
More Energy More Money
So that’s how I’d put it. More energy = more money. And more connection = more energy. Therefore, more connection = more money. Simply, right? It’s math. More Energy More Money just makes sense!
My financial status, therefore, is a measure of the persistence and consistency of my connection to spirit that allows that infinite energy to come through me and be expressed as things like money.
I appreciate that that is a little long winded, but that is an energetic terminology to explain something that has been explained so many other times. And it’s important because the only periods of lack in my life have been when I have failed to connect to that source. The only times of lack have happened when I have failed to focus on these fundamental truths.
What is your experience with this? Does this ring a bell? Does this resonate at all? I’d be curious to hear from you. Please write a comment in the comment section below.
