Wealth or Poverty? It’s All in Your Cells
Are you one of the many who struggles with finances, never having enough money? Science reveals that your cells can be addicted to being poor or wealthy! Do you think the odds are stacked against you for prosperity and abundance?
If you answered yes, then you just identified your BIGGEST block to being more prosperous. If you want to have more abundance in your life, your “cells” need to change the messages they are giving you and the messages you are feeding them!
Oprah was one of those people where the odds were against her. She was born a black female and raised in a low-income family in Mississippi but it didn’t affect the prosperous life she created.
Analysing Your Cells Explains Your Predicament
An in-depth exploration of your thoughts will reveal the real reasons you lack in wealth. After all, everything begins with a thought and that thought will manifest into action when you consistently hold onto it.
If you break your addiction to scarcity and create an addiction to abundance and success, you can have all the prosperity you want. There is scientific research that explains the reasons why you have struggled to have more wealth and how to change it.
How Do These Statements Relate to Your Wealth Thinking?
- I can’t afford that.
- I wish I had what they have.
- They charge too much.
- That’s too expensive.
- I never have enough.
- I have a lot of fear about money.
- I have to work hard for money.
- I worry about my future.
- There is not enough to go around.
- Money doesn’t grow on trees.
- You can’t be spiritual and wealthy.
- I don’t care about money.
- Money won’t buy happiness.
- I hate money; it causes conflict.
- I’d rather be poor and happy.
Self Talk = Prosperity Level
In situations where you feel there is a lack of money and repeat similar “scarcity mindset” statements, you continually reinforce your lack of abundance. Guess what? The Universe IS fair! It will give you EXACTLY what you have been asking for, which is what you have been saying and feeling (and I know you don’t think you have been asking for blocks in your finances), so read on as I explain the cause.
This is Rocket Science
This isn’t rocket science or maybe it is? The science shows that you can be addicted to your own thoughts and emotions. When you have repetitive thoughts, you’re launching rockets of desires (yes, Abraham-Hicks again) and they are getting answered. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. In this case, it’s the poor conditioning from your childhood that you have unconsciously repeated about your lack or unworthiness of abundance or wealth.
If you want more abundance, you need a lobotomy and your brain dissected. Or better still, how about reprograming yourself for an abundant mindset? Sounds easier – right?
I have seen the exact same patterns of the unconscious (and conscious) thinking with clients and students that manifest into their real-life abundance levels. One girl commented that when she was a child, her father always said: “It will all work out financially, don’t worry.” This programmed her to feel relaxed about money. And as an adult, she says the exact same thing about money, “I don’t worry because it always works out.”
Emotional Addictions Control You
Dr. Candace Pert Ph.D., author of Molecules of Emotion, Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d and biologist/contributor on What the Bleep Do We Know, discovered that thoughts transform into molecules the moment you think them.
Pert explains that emotions are not merely chemicals in the brain. They are electrochemical signals that affect the chemistry and electricity of every single cell in the body. The body’s electrical state is modulated by emotions, changing the world within the body, which confirms that emotional states affect the world outside of the body.
Her research shows that thinking activates the hypothalamus (a “control center” near the base of the brain) that transforms thought into millions of neuropeptides (amino acids) which represent the dominant emotion associated with that thought. The thought becomes a molecular messenger of emotion then floods the bloodstream with these neuropeptides.
The neuropeptides insert themselves into the cells and interlock with a particular receptacle (custom made for it) on the cell’s membrane. The amino acids are absorbed by the cells and the more times this pathway is created, the more the cells crave the neuropeptides, and instruct the hypothalamus to produce them.
It’s the same as a drug addict; the more these receptacles are used, the less effective they become. The body then produces more “poverty consciousness” receptacles for the damaged and worn out ones. It then requires more neuropeptides to be produced for the “poverty consciousness” receptacles.
Like drugs, it becomes a vicious cycle getting off the merry-go-round to stop the addiction. Your body is craving the feelings you had in childhood of not having enough money.
Quotes from Dr. Pert
“I’ve always kind of known that the energy you emanate from within attracts the situations and people that you need.”
“As our feelings change, this mixture of peptides travels throughout your body and your brain. And they’re changing the chemistry of every cell in your body.”
Because of the decades, you have spent feeling and thinking negatively about money (scarcity, lack, etc.), your brain has become addicted to that feeling. Therefore, your mind creates the circumstances to attract scarcity and lack, to feed its addiction.
You may know others who have these common emotional addictions to:
- Low self-worth
- Abusing etc. … and …
- SCARCITY MINDSET?
Intervention Time – You can Attract Money Instantly!
You need an intervention for your scarcity mindset and poverty addicted cells. Time to face up and admit your addictions and “get real” as my TV friend, Dr. Phil would say. The intervention won’t hurt a bit if you come willingly. You don’t want it to get so bad that you’re carted off to the rehabilitation clinic in a straight jacket – do you?
7 Steps to on How to Shift Your Emotional Compass for Abundance
Self-worth plays a big part in your ability to manifest abundance. If you have positive self-worth, you will feel worthy of abundance. Say yes to people who want to help and give to you.
Feel and Speak Abundance
Celebrate and acknowledge the abundance or wealth you receive for yourself or for others. The more awareness of abundance and prosperity you have, the more it grows.
Give up feeling like a victim. Start thinking and acting like an empowered person. Shift your reactions and get your power back.
Build your good money karma. Assist others to gain wealth. Be honest with your financial exchanges. Keep your mind on positive and kind thoughts of others and acknowledge their contribution.
Develop and Educate Yourself
Spend your resources educating and improving yourself. Your life is a journey and you will arrive at your destinations a lot faster when you engage with great mentors and gain support from others who understand you.
Patience and Follow Your Feelings
Practice patience on your journey to abundance. This process involves rebuilding the foundation that began from childhood (and past lives). That’s a lot of rewiring! Tune into your feelings and follow them as they are your GPS to freedom.
Visit places that feel opulent or extravagant so your emotions shift to feeling abundant. Invest in yourself and tell yourself you are worthy of being and having more. It won’t be long before all that abundant energy rubs off on you!
Oprah’s Gratitude Journal
Getting back to Oprah. Early on in her life, she did not appear to be a likely candidate to attract great wealth, let alone become one of the world’s most influential women. From a young age, Oprah recognised universal laws and would put them into action.
One of her daily routines was to write a gratitude list in her gratitude journal. This created strong daily pathways of feeling abundant and therefore attracted more of the same. Her cells became addicted to feeling grateful for her abundance, no matter how much prosperity she had.
Working Towards Abundance
What if there are no barriers to creating financial abundance?
Would you develop new beliefs about what you can do whether it is paying your bills or receiving an income that you desire?
When you realize that you have nothing to lose by daring to think in abundance, then it becomes easier to shift your perspective.
If you start to believe that you could save, enjoy, and afford to go on your dream vacation or retire from a non-fulfilling job, your reality will start adjusting to it.
Here is the truth, if you can’t even have faith in what you want and where you want to be, taking action towards achieving your goal would be impossible.
Conscious and Holistic Abundance
We usually think of abundance in term of riches and material accumulation. However, there is conscious wealth which encompasses many other things and combines purpose with prosperity to give a holistic abundance.
Seth Streeter explained conscious wealth as when you look beyond the pecuniary aspect of abundance and holistically consider your life recognizing other aspects of wealth such as health, relationship and career satisfaction.
You could manifest a million dollars but if you can’t climb a flight of steps without panting because you are out of shape or have trouble sleeping due to anxiety, then you don’t have abundance.
Other aspects of abundance living include:
- Making a difference with your talents and gifts
- Waking up happy and with very low stress
- A healthy social and family relationships
- Physical, spiritual and intellectual wealth
- Working in alignment with your vision
Abundance in Giving
The zero-sum game of scarcity thinking is unfavorable to creating abundance. As explained in Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, a paradigm of abundance will help you see value in others and work towards sharing decision making, profits, and good ideas to build something bigger than yourself.
You should give even if you also desire wealth. It is a practical aspect of abundance living that has a positive impact on your emotional and psychological well-being.
The act of giving or sharing triggers the release of dopamine. This is responsible for the pleasure sensation and engaging relationships. The feeling good effect that arises from performing an act of kindness will endure long after the act.
Your cells will become addicted to feeling a more meaningful connection and attracting more abundance into your life as you share with others.
The Role of Positive Psychology
Many people link psychology with fixing a bad state of mind. However, you can be perfectly normal and still be eluded by abundance. This is where positive psychology comes in. It is about helping you to thrive instead of just getting by with life.
A Carnegie Mellon University study indicates that positive affirmations can improve brain power and reduce stress.
Dr. Martin Seligman, the father of positive psychology came up with 5 pillars of psychological health(PERMA) required for creating abundance and happiness. They include:
P – Positive emotion dealing with feeling good, optimism, and enjoyment
E – Engagement which is about doing fulfilling work and exciting lifestyle
R – Relationship involving deep connections, intimacy and physical interaction with others
M -Having a Meaning and a Purpose
A – Accomplishment resulting from setting and pursuing worthy goals and ambition.
The confluence of these pillars serves as a foundation for creating abundance.
Abundance thinking is just like a flower in the garden, you must cultivate and nurture it after planting, or it will wilt and die.
Some of the methods of maintaining an abundance lifestyle include:
Recognize Unlimited Possibilities
A Harvard study discovered that when people focus on one particular thing, they become blinded to other possibilities. You should loosen and reset your mind to have an expanded awareness that will translate into abundance. A few minutes of meditation can help. When you clear your mind, new possibilities can germinate in it.
Create Mastery Experiences
To create a deep knowledge and focus that you can develop whatever you want in life in abundance, you must build mastery experiences. These are past experiences of success that you’ve had in your life.
Creating mastery experience is simple; just divide a big goal into smaller parts. Then score yourself as you achieve the smaller goals. This will motivate you to move forward with the big goal.
Focus on Growth
Carol Dweck in her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success explained that a growth mindset involves the belief that you can develop your abilities through practice, dedication and hard work. You need this principle of learning and improvement to create abundance.
Listen and then reflect on your thinking and abilities and what you can do to achieve your goals.
Creating abundance involves learning and growth. It’s based on the belief that you don’t know everything even about your field. This thinking will prompt you to learn new things such as hobby, skills or starting a passion project.
With a growth focus, you can look at challenges from a holistic perspective, see what is working and find a way to improve it. It is this expansive mindset that will help you attract more opportunities for abundance into your life.
