Money Myths and Misconceptions – Introduction

To get the best that life has to offer, one needs to understand that the universe is governed by laws or principles. One of such basic principles is the law of attraction.

At every point in time, we are either attracting or repelling stuff by the energy or vibes we emit.

“All life is energy and we are transmitting it at every moment. We are all little beaming little signals like radio frequencies, and the world is responding in kind.”

~ Oprah Winfrey

Have you ever walked into a room, stumbled upon a conversation and suddenly developed this strange awkward feeling that the discussion that was terminated abruptly just as you stepped in, was some form of gossip about you? You can’t explain it but you know it. You walk into a gathering or a house and though no remark was made, you feel so odd; so unwelcome.

This is it:

Thoughts have presence! Thoughts are things! Thoughts are tangible! Thoughts have controlling potential!

Not all thoughts become reality, you may say. Absolutely! Our belief system has a great role to play in this. Our belief system (mindset or mental programming according to some quarters)- a product of our education and environment – fuels our thoughts. The resultant mix is a time bomb that will always explode when the time is ripe.

This is not meant to be another write up on philosophy. Much work has been done by experts in that field. However, this principle cannot be overemphasized –

Thoughts backed up by strong emotions (energy in motion) or feelings are impregnated with the potential of manifestation.

Negative thinking about money produces negative words. Over time, negative actions are born. A series of negative actions repeated consistently over a period of time will no doubt result in failure , poverty and the likes.

Your life gravitates towards the direction of your most predominant thoughts – positive or negative.

“Men do not attract what they want but what they are.”

~ James Allen

“For as he (a man) thinketh in his heart so is he…”

~ Solomon David

Just like you walked into that room and felt some form of repulsive vibration or energy, money walks into the lives of many peoples and feels unwanted. Some people actually do repel wealth!

Unhealthy mental programming about money always produces an unhealthy personal economy.

In this series, we shall be examining our mental programming about money.

What ‘money thought patterns’ exist in our subconscious based on genetic disposition, family background, upbringing, societal values and norms, school education, experience etc?

Could these patterns be responsible for the glass ceiling or lid on our finances?

In this amazing journey of discovery, we shall be reviewing the myths and misconceptions about money – facts and lies that are deeply embedded in our subconscious.

Our goal is 3-pronged:

1. identify the glass ceiling that our belief system built over our personal economy,

2. get rid of the ceiling and

3. increase our financial intelligence

One of the definitions of the word ‘myth’ according to Freedictionary.com  is
a belief or set of beliefs, often unproven or false, that have accrued around a person, phenomenon, or institution.

A misconception is
a mistaken thought, idea, or notion; a misunderstanding.

A misconception of the principles governing the universe can be disastrous to human existence. Likewise, a lack of understanding of the laws of money can be injurious and fatal to personal economy.

It’s time to get rid of our self-limiting beliefs about money. It’s time to take the lid off! Hop in! Let’s ride!!
