Many moons ago, when I was first learning to create and accept the universe's abundance, I was introduced to a book by Jeannie LaBorde entitled "Influencing with Integrity". Within that book there was an exercise whereby one created a vision of already having what they want.
Many times I'd also written lists of things I wanted (still do) and when I've gone back to those lists, found that, without even knowing it, I've created those things. Case in point is, my healing center. When I wrote down what I wanted ~ I wrote down how it would look, who would come, what I would feel, see, hear, etc. never believing I would come to a point in my life where I could actually ~ financially AND emotionally have this.
Now that so many of you are going for certification classes as well as so many of you never even seeing the opportunity from where you are to being able to live beyond survival ~ nevermind "thrival", I came across this exercise and have decided to share it with you. It is quite similar to what J. LaBorde did. It is an exercise in seeing, feeling, breathing, tasting and experiencing what it is you want. Make it BIG!!!! Do it EVERY SINGLE day! The universe does NOT know whether what you visualize is real or not. Realize that you create your reality every moment of the day by what you say and what you think (which is why I do appreciations EVERY SINGLE day). IF you think poverty and dis-ease, you'll create it. If you think wealth and health, you'll create it. It's almost totally up to you.
First of all is a sample of it ~ which anyone can do. After that, they offer you free software where you (PC's ONLY!!!! ~ ask me how I know ) can download a quicker and better version to your desktop so you can do the exercise every day. They also offer you a paid download which is $19.95. Now, what I did was pay ~ for two reasons ~ One, to acknowledge my abundance to the universe. Two ~ to thank the person who introduced me to this fabulous software. Do what you can afford and what makes your heart sing.
Thing is, whether you pay or not is none of my concern. Thing is, PLEASE, do the exercise daily. Focus on what you do want daily (they put a "what I don't want exercise in there which many are more easy with than stating what they do want) and see what happens. Post it here. I'd love to see/hear your results.
(Link removed as it's not working anymore ~ sorry. If I find it again, I'll repost).
Best to all ~
REVELL!! You are an angel. I was just sharing that I needed some guidance in creating and keeping abundance without GUILT or shame.
For me, it would be maintaining a low weight and being joyous and giving without fear. These are just a few. I will look into this ASAP!! For today I am writing positive affirmations about my body--which i tend to "beat up" on. But want to incorporate them into my financial life since I want to work part time doing a job I love by the age of 40--I am 34 now and tired of being an inner city teacher. I am so happy you did this and my Higher Power guided me to get on this thread today.
You are the best:)
You are soooo welcome. I'm so thankful the universe directed me to it also. Isn't it amazing how we think that being wealthy is not good? Who can we help when we, ourselves, live in poverty? NO ONE!!!! At least, not as we may like to.
When Katrina hit, I'm sure many would have liked to have given more, yet, they couldn't because of their own situations. I emptied my wallet (I carry quite a bit) knowing there was more where that came from.
Please share any good experiences you have w/ doing the exercises.
I will keep you posted on my progress and hope you can share with me some of your successes. I KNOW it works but it is my ???? that stops me from writing and seeing it happening. I think it is fear of doing better than my family and friends and being abandoned and rejected envied etc... Isn't it amazing what fear can do. It is more toxic than MSG and arsenic combined!! F-E-A-R stands for false evidence appearing real or F^&* everything and run!! I gotta remember that.
My abundances will be focused on
Digestion and my body and body image
Harmony and a deep deep love with my spouse.
Working less and having the $$$ security/peace to stay home and then find a way to serve my community.
Fear can also be seen as:
Accept it as part of being himan
Yes, it is amazing what we do to ourselves because of past programming. Along with what you said is ~ fear of how others will relate with us. My questions here are: What will change if you become wealthy and/or healthy? Most don't like to think about it yet, relationships with people will have to change and many will most probably end. I have had to end so many relationships w/ people who do NOT support my aliveness and life is waaaay to short to live the way others want me to.
Very well said.....
I am going to now leave work and enjoy the rest of my blessed day!!
Injoy your evening and rest of day!!
Thanks Revell, I just did the free manifestation thingie and I'm going to see if it works. I should know within the next hour.
*later* ...what I manifested didn't come to fruition for me. Hmmm....

Thank you for sharing this experience. I am grateful for the reminder. I have does this sort of written work in the past and I'm always amazed at what happens when I go back and see what I have written.
I live an abundant life
I have a peaceful existence with my body
I love who I am
I am healthy, happy and whole
I give freely of myself to others and allow others to give to me
Karen and Sharon,
Thank you for responding. Please, let me know the results.
An hour, eh? So maybe something else has come your way?
For me, lots of little things have been happening. On Sat. I entered a drawing at the farmers' market to win some small things they had there and to support the market. Well, one thing they had was tomatoes. I wanted them. My friend won them and gave them to me. The very last thing up for grabs was a bag of tangerines. I wanted them and I won them.
Today I was at a networking meeting. There was a book someone had and we got into a conversation and in my mind I was saying "I want that book" planning on ordering it through Amazon. Just as I was thinking that, the woman gave it to me.
Just remember, sometimes you don't receive things the way you wish to ~ and other times, you may just manifest smaller things ~ on your way to bigger and better. It's ALL abundance!
Revvell the thing that didn't come to fruition was my cholesterol results. I got a cholesterol monitor on e-bay and right before I tested I saw your thread here and decided to claim it to be under 250, which didn't happen. I posted the results on the December Rawkin' 90's challenge journal if you want to read about it.
I think creating abundance is also about making the best of what you have. What I have is genetic and I have to make the best of it which is what I'm doing.
Thanks for the link.

Wonderful post Revvell.
That is exactly how I manifested my Living Food Center. We literally sat down, closed our eyes, visualized and experienced it in every detail (on an ongoing basis) and voila--it happened. I love how easily you can explain the intangible Revvell. You are gifted in your awareness and in your ability to communicate it.
Sharon practice it for awhile. I can honestly say your ability to manifest--and even more challenging-to recognize and accept what you manifest-grows over time. Sometimes, we dont see what we have created. I am so glad you tried it though. :)
We are such creators! Isnt it exciting?
We are artists, painting our own lives.
Thank you sweetgoddess.
Sharon, I agree we can only start where we are ~ which is accepting where we are AT THIS MOMENT. It does not mean we don't want to ~ or can't change. It means, we visualize ourselves as healthy. We take action to bring that about.
Nature and the universe work in very mysterious ways. We don't always get what we want yet we ALWAYS get what we need?
Not saying this to you specifically yet, many who have illness or are in poverty need to look at the benefits they are receiving and IF they are willing to give those up. For example, someone who has never been sick and now is getting the utmost care and can be lazy, etc. IF they heal, then they lose the attention AND they'll have to find ways to take care of themselves.
With living just above what would ~ for them ~ be poverty level ~ what would one be afraid of? JMD gave some good examples. Most people don't even know how/why they are sabatoging.
What about relationships? How/why do people keep attracting the same guy? Different size, different color, different heritage ~ starts out new, ends the same. Why? How? How to change that?
Thanks Revell. Wow, very powerful!! I have been doing something similar...Creative Visualization...for years and it really does work!!
I believe God provides everything we need, and even desire, if we would stop limiting Him (and ourselves) I say think big! Think outside the box, but always in line with His purpose for your life. We are what we believe we are.
Thanks again for this great resource! I'm believing for many things to manifest in my life by September 2006. I'll keep you posted :)
Yes, I read Shakti's book many moons ago. Her words are as relevant now as they were then and many things people write now come from what she wrote.
I think she has one shortcoming though ~ many people will benefit from visualizations yet, if they do not take care of the background energy fields or the past programming, they are often going to sabatoge all the work they do. Once someone learns where the programming comes from, they can realize it's not them; it's something they've unconsciously acquired and installed and believed ~ which is why they cannot be, do and have what they want.
For those following this thread, here is a suggestion ~ Pick up the book: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. IF you purchase it or receive a copy from an affiliate (make sure they give you a #), you can receive a 3-day seminar with him. All the info is in the book. I will be reading and suggesting quite a few books here that I have found to be useful.
I realized while doing the abundance work I am doing that I don't really care if I become a millionaire. What I do want is enough $$$ to have and do what I want whenever I want it. If that takes being a millionaire, then, so be it. If not, then it'll take whatever it takes.
I couldn't have said it better myself! I'm off to find a copy of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind :)
