I have worked The Money Workbook – subtitled “A 30-Day Program to Greater Abundance, Prosperity, and Self-Worth” – many times over the years. The Author is Dr. Roger B. Lane, the Founder/Director of Cosmos Tree and Center For Religion And Advanced Spiritual Studies (CRASS). Dr. Lane is also the Dean of the Powerful CRASS Seminary.
Like all of Dr. Lane’s Books, The Money Workbook never stops giving. In order to receive the Gift of this Tool of Growth and Upliftment, I need to be open to What It Teaches and I need to do my part, which I’ve been doing recently, notably regarding What Dr. Lane Instructs in “Day 18”.
In that “Day” Dr. Lane, Who is also My Spiritual Teacher, asks the reader to “Make a list of three things in your life that until now you have denied yourself for whatever reason.” Then It Instructs: “Now pick one of the three that would strain you monetarily and psychologically, and go out and give it to yourself.”
While I wasn’t formally working this time The Money Workbook as a 30-Day Program, I applied the Learning that I’ve gotten from This Tool that when I give to mySelf I’m met by Spirit – often many times over.
Let me give you an example! I live in New York City where, for a while now, I’ve walked by a store on Madison Avenue that sells exactly what I’d been wanting to buy for mySelf – a wonderful-looking, oversized shirt to wear with leggings. Yet, instead of doing that, I walked past it. After all, this is Madison Avenue and we all know how pricey things are on this street.
Then, one day, I chose to walk in “just to look”. The moment that the eager salesperson came over with “May I help you?” I made it OK inside mySelf to spend whatever it cost to give mySelf the shirt. I even remember very quietly whispering to mySelf, “who cares about the money!” And kind of smiling. In that moment I just let go of the worry and the fear behind it of “not enough”, in this case money. I was just having a good time.
That inner choice resulted in excitement, enthusiasm, Joy really. I enJoyed being there; the try-ons; the advice from a couple of salespeople. I was having a blast. It wasn’t really the “outer” thing; it was the Power of the Inner Choice.
Then, as soon as I handed the salesperson a card to pay for the shirt I’d chosen, he exclaimed, “Oh! This is on sale!” He seemed shocked.
Yes, indeed. That’s what My Teacher Teaches: when I give to mySelf what, up until then, I’ve been denying mySelf It often costs far less; sometimes it’s even free, as I’ve discovered over the years. I’ve Learned from Dr. Lane and many of the Tools brought forward by My Teacher that “underneath it all is the Worthiness Factor”, Knowing I’m Inherently Worthy. Worthy of the Spirit I am; of Living as That, as Who I am. I’ve Learned that I am Powerful/a Powerful Creator.
While I Know the Truth of This, I’ve been experiencing It recently as never before.
As My Teacher writes in “Day 17”: “Many people who have partaken of the Money Workbook have changed their view of the world, and either have been willing to let go or, at least, to experiment with letting go of lack and limitation and to reassert themselves in the world with the knowledge that Spirit Supplies. They found that when they bought a high-priced item that they had not previously allowed themselves to have the item was suddenly discounted, often as high as 70 to 80 percent. …”
“When you expand your consciousness and let go of lack and limitation you find that the world has expanded with you. …”
Here’s another example! I took mySelf out to dinner last night. Beforehand, though, I chose to cogitate about how much restaurant meals cost these days. After all, with inflation, what used to be a $30 meal is now a $60 one! Then, I simply chose to let go inside mySelf and gave it to mySelf.
Same “result”: excitement, fun, Joy. A blast.
Then, mid-appetizer, my cell phone rang. It was a friend inviting me to dinner in the next couple of weeks “and pick a place that’s really, really nice.”
Yep. The money was replaced – pretty much right away.
As the Spirit I am I’m Supplied. That Joy is the Joy of Spirit, Which, as an Initiate Of The Sound Current, I Live In when I choose to be Present. Abundance is My Essence. It’s The Sound Current. It’s God living in me as me. As My Teacher Teaches, Abundance Consciousness is Placing my Conscious at God; It’s being Present. Prosperity follows Abundance, as My Teacher also Teaches.
Another example: I was denying mySelf the Gift of Donating an SD card to the Cosmos Tree Center for its video camera. “Too expensive”, I told mySelf – until I didn’t and chose instead to give it to mySelf. The instant I handed my debit card to the cashier she said, “Oh! You have a $10 certificate here! Do you want to use it?” The tab barely came to $8.
Over the years, I’ve Learned that, In Reality, I’m the Source as the Spirit I am.
So it’s up to me to Co-Create Positively by being Present, by surrendering anything that separates me from the Spirit I am and to express from this place of Giving to mySelf inwardly – being Generous, as My Teacher Teaches – with outer byproducts, an expression of that Inner Generosity.
