Getting Into The Flow

“The real ‘haves’ are they who can acquire freedom, self-confidence, and even riches without depriving others of them. They acquire all of these by developing and applying their potentialities. On the other hand, the real ‘have nots’ are they who cannot have aught except by depriving others of it. They can feel free only by diminishing the freedom of others, self-confident by spreading fear and dependence among others, and rich by making others poor.” – Eric Hoffer

Hi Persuader,

I love affluence. I love abundance. I love money. I love the energy of wealth. I love the influx and flow and supply and power of affluence.

How does it make you feel to read that?

Maybe you’d say, “Who doesn’t love money? Everyone loves money.”

But maybe my love of abundance and affluence makes you feel uncomfortable?

Perhaps you were taught that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24). And maybe you think loving wealth is greedy or that money is “dirty”.

Plenty of people have complicated relationships with money, issues of “deserveability” if you will, and conflicting desires as they relate to wealth accumulation and affluence.

Americans have a love-hate relationship with the richness of our culture. We revel in our position of prosperity and at the same time, some feel incredible guilt at the images the media shows us of the less fortunate.

It’s complex.

But if you’re in my coaching group or looking to get involved with MAXpersuasion, your relationship to money is probably pretty much in the flow.

What we’re doing is immersing ourselves in the energy of money.

By loving something you’re going to bring more of it to you.

The universe hates a vacuum. What we want to do is literally expand our universes by creating vacuums in our lives in relation to money and wealth so that the universe can fill these vacuums with more of what we want and need.

Here’s the deal with money:

Money is its own energy and it’s a very specific, precise energy and you have to learn to get into the flow of money or else it will control you. I work all the time to stay in alignment with that and to make it even more prevalent in my life.

Keep in mind realistic goals as to what’s going to happen. You’ll begin to find ways and means of increasing your income, of money being more steady and/or bigger amounts when it comes. Generally, you’ll be in the flow of money.

A good way to think of money is like an ocean. There’s more of it than you can possibly ever take for yourself.

You could never take all the water in the ocean. Like the water in the ocean, there’s no shortage of money; there’s only a shortage in your ability to carry it home. And that’s not a shortage either. You just have to learn how to do it.

If you go cup your hands and you fill them full of water and you try to get home with it.. well, by the time you get to the car most of it will be gone. You’ll be lucky to end up with a drop or two when you get home.

If you put it in a barrel, maybe the barrel won’t fit and you’ll have to leave it behind. But if you’ve got bottles and you’ve bottled it up and you put the bottles in the trunk and filled your trunk with it, well you’d probably get it all home.

That’s how much wealth there is. And all you have to do is create a specific strategy to extract what you want. And you can grow or diminish it at will. But if you don’t do it at will, it’s going to do it to you. It’s going to tell you how much you can have and how much you need and what you can do. It’s going to be in control of you all of the time.

In my opinion, we need to understand once and for all that we are in control of our destiny and we can manifest whatever we want. I hope this article helps you to do that. If you need more help, I can help you in organizing your thoughts about money and extracting from your mind the necessary energy you need to control your life.

It’s a simple process and at the same time is so profound in what it can accomplish for you. It can literally change your life. If you think this is something that will help you, check out Persuasion Factor as this system is contained within that program.

I hope this information helps you. Please leave your comments and let me know.

Until Next Time,

Hi Kenrick,

Great post – would you also address the specific verse 1 Timothy 6:10, which states “The love of money is the root of all (kinds) of evil.” Some people get hung up on this one even more than Matthew 19.24.

I’m interested in what Jeremy said, as well. In fact, I am one of those who thought of the Timothy passage immediately.
I’ve never had a problem with people talking about the neutrality of money, nor the steps to aquire it by helping serve other people. When people talk about money in this way, they usually warn against the “love of money” – a love which could create a desire to obtain it by any means possible. On the other hand, it would seem that being motivated by wealth via service to humankind is a guard against the dangers of the love of money and replacing it with the love of people.
In truth, this post gave me pause for those reasons.

One way to find the deeper meaning of the verse: “The love of money is the root of
all evil.” is to consider the significance of the word “love.” The dictionary defines love
as a feeling of personal attachment.

Could it be that the Bible writer is warning us about a certain form of attachment?

Someone who has made money an object of their love has an attachment – but what

In order to find the specific type of attachment it is useful to look at the entire verse, which states: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” This is the King James Version.

The term that provides us with a clue is the word “coveted.” Coveting is a word
we rarely use in modern language The dictionary describes coveting as desiring wrongfully, inordinately, or without due regard for the rights of others.

One of the synonyms for covet is envy. So coveting is an excessive desire, especially to possess something. These meanings bring the terms greed and avarice to mind.

So do these definitions mean we should shun money and eliminate any desire for acquiring or accumulating riches?

Is desire for money – with its power to pierce us with many sorrows – something to be scared of?

Consider the possibility of having a balanced relationship with money. The scripture is warning us about the dangers of “excessive” desire. Notice the verse does not say “having or wanting money is the root of all evil.”

Again the dictionary definition of the word “covet” gives a deeper insight into the scripture. It gives us a huge clue as to what wrongful desire is. The phrase: “without due regard to others.”

One way to look at this controversial scripture is to consider the fact that people love people, places, and things that are important to them. Some of us make our loved ones a priority, while others make achievement and gaining their main concern.

What if the Bible writer is warning his readers to remain aware of their true priorities?

Should we not safeguard ourselves from making money more important than our regard for others?

Look at the “love of money” from the frame of your priorities in life. Do you disregard others in order to again wealth?

It is very easy to let money slip up as the higher value over our relationship with others. In fact, it is very common in this day and age to take it to the next level.

How could it be any worse?

It is also very common for people to make money a priority over their relationship with themselves.

Desiring wealth, abundance, and learning how to attract money – getting “into the flow of money” – are good things as long as your priorities are clear. The Bible writer is simply warning you and I, in advance, about the great power money can have over us – if we give it that power.

Now, if you find that you inadvertently get caught up in excessive desire for money then congratulations; you now have found an issue – your own personal challenge around money.

Once you resolve this issue, your ability to attract and manage money will increase.
Releasing this block will move you to be more “in sync” with yourself and the flow of money in your life – as Kenrick says.

Paul Maclauchlan - September 12, 2007

Exactly, Mike! It is the *love* of money we are warned against, not the money. Loving money is evil, not having it.

I find it interesting that (almost) everyone assumes that this verse is targeting the irch or wealthy. There is nothing written there that says those that love money are the ones that have it. What if I were to suggest that the people that love money too much are the ones that DON’T have it? Perhaps they do not have because God does not trust them with it.

In my experience, most people that have earned their money do not love it. It is a tool to be used for better things. God trusts them with the money.

How about this passage: “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion…” (2 Corinthians 9:11)

God wants generous people that he can make wealthy. Those that will make a difference with their gifts.

I see the Matthew verse in a similar light. We must remember that Jesus is not literal in his parables and directions. The “eye of a needle” is a doorway in Jerusalem. The only way through for a camel is to remove all the burden it carries and then get the animal to crawl through the opening on its knees.

In Matthew 19, Jesus wants the young ruler to understand that God must be first in his life. Devotion and praise are not enough. The order to sell everything and give it to the poor is no more a literal command than when He says in verses 5 and 18 that we must pluck out our eyes if they have caused us to sin.

The message is do not let anything come between you and God.

No Limit Success
