It is time to introduce you to one of the voices in my head. I call her the bag lady. I am telling you about her because she has alot of friends just like her who pop in to pester my friends and clients. So, be on the look out as these types have a sneaky way of debilitating you.
First the bag lady’s voice starts every so sweetly, like “are you sure you can afford the apple?” you ignore her voice and pick up the apple. Then she continues, “well so you can afford the apple today but you are getting older and will you be able to afford the apple tomorrow?”
She then partners with the ego so she can get the wondering and doubt and fear to show up and then says “you know, you better start being careful about the number of apples you consume because someday you might not have enough money to buy them. Look at you, you are out of shape, your boss doesn’t even know you exist, in fact you will probably be fired on Monday morning when you go to work and then what are you going to do? Your kids will starve and your spouse will leave you and you will be on the street.” Yep, in ten seconds you have the bag lady firmly seated in your head. The brain then fires off visions of you pushing a cart with your life’s belongings dangling as you look for a warm place to sleep unable to provide for yourself or anyone else.
After that, the body is now in the game and has a physical reaction and yanks you over to your desk to reconcile your bank account, you call your broker and scream at him as to why your account is not performing as well as you hoped and you ask him if you will have enough money to buy apples when you are 65. Next, you tell your spouse to stop spending money because you can’t afford to buy anything anymore since you are going to lose your job on Monday morning. Yep, that’s her, the Bag Lady popping your big balloon of abundance with a single thought. Check out more stories like this in my book.
As much as I want to say I have conquered all the unnecessary thoughts that circle around me and that I live in blissful harmony with nature and all things, voices like the bag lady still show up. It always seems like just when I am celebrating my abundance and taming my concerns this prosperity party pooper arrives.
I have, over the years of hanging out with her, settled into a new relationship with her because I got tired of whenever my finances were challenging she would show up unannounced wanting me to start pushing the cart again. That is now my signal that it is time for her and I to have a chat so I sit down and have a meeting in my minds. Her ego and my ego, face to face. I tell her I am fine, that I am rich with all things that the harvests bring and that I am in a God place where nothing is lacking. I remind myself to fill my cells with an emotional bounty of positive thoughts that feed my souls journey with a knowing that the universe will provide and I will receive. She remarkably then ups and leaves. I no longer have the negative energy to sustain her presence in a place of need. The peace seeps in and I grab the abundant grocery cart with faith and optimism and check out. I check out of the thoughts that bind me and prevent the doors and windows of my mind to fly open to all of the possibilities for prosperity.
So with the bag lady secured away I remove the incessant desire for all things and the resulting lack of all things. I seek fulfillment through the satisfaction that I have everything I need at any moment in time. That way I always have a juicy apple to take a bite of today and everyday and that is enough, that is always enough.
