Money is an Ally
This book grew out of a workshop conducted by the authors on how to handle “difficulty around money, whether it is spending too much, not having enough or having too much.” In alignment with the Law of Attraction, they present some simple tools to change the proclivity of most people to function from a consciousness based on not having enough to one from an abundance based mindset. This they do by confronting the omnipresent credo that persists in the society of today that “lack is more real than abundance”, and how it operates. Next, they put forward some simple tools, which, if acted upon, would bring about small changes in the reader’s consciousness, and that could, if practised over a period of time, usher in greater financial prosperity.
The mindset changes that are advocated in this book are very easy to incorporate in a busy urban lifestyle. For instance, they involve living in the question of what it takes to get what one wants, thus creating an invitation for the Universe to step in and make opportunities for it to happen. These and other similar questions, e.g. “what’s right about this situation that I’m not getting”, facilitates creation from a sense of allowing what is, without either judgement or acceptance. Another tool is living in ten second increments, in lieu of living in the Now.
The authors are very clear on the point of acceptance vs. allowance, devoting a whole chapter to the subject. They point out that it is possible to allow evil to exist, without accepting its true nature. The same holds for evil people, one should trust one’s instincts and keep a healthy distance from them and not try to befriend them from a mistaken sense of sanctimony.
The discussion of evil extends to a classification of people into humans and humanoids. Humans are, according to the authors, like the Muggles in the Harry Potter series, very resistant to change, since they have a fixed outlook on life. Humanoids are those who are willing to accept that change can take various unforeseen forms, and that the Universe, in its complexity, is kind at heart.
The authors conclude by summing up their modus operandi of the earlier chapters.
There is a plethora of books today on the subject of poverty consciousness and how to change it. This book is not fundamentally different from the others, but it is exceedingly well written and easy to read, being material that has been presented in a workshop, and thus attuned to the needs of people at the grassroots level.
