A Deeper Understanding of Money for Individual Prosperity

By John R. Price in Prosperity on April 21st, 2007 / 2 Comments

Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary says that money is a “medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment.” In short, money is what people use to buy things. Nothing evil, unspiritual, or too materialistic there. Money is simply a part of the physical-living process, and in the past it came in forms as varied as stones, beads, feathers, fishhooks, animal skins, and shells.

To establish a standard value in the system, metal coins were later made, each one stamped with a design to guarantee its value. These first were made around 600 B.C. in the country now called Turkey, and paper money got its start in China during the 1300s. Today we give paper money and coins to people for the things they sell or the work they do.

Simple, isn’t it?

Where it gets complex is that many people don’t have sufficient paper or coins to exchange for the goods and services they need and want. Why not? Because their consciousness isn’t attracting, or it’s literally repelling, the energy of money. And that’s very curious, because the energy of all form, including money, is already an inherent part of each individual’s Force Field, an essential part of his/her Light Body.

To help me understand this, I redefined money as follows:

“Money is my own natural energy yield.” Let’s analyze each word more fully What does my mean? It relates to me or myself as a possessor of something. What about own? It means “belonging to oneself.” And natural? It means “God-given, genuine, normal, an essential essence.” Energy? The word was first coined by Aristotle to express the concept of “vigor of expression.”

The Mystery School in Alexandria then began using the word to describe “cosmic forces,” the Power and Force of Omnipotence, that which we are individualized. Each one of us is the very Energy of the Universe personified. And yield? It’s defined as harvest, return, payment-in other words, to bring something forth as a result of cultivation or as a return from investment.

With the above understanding, let’s now describe money in this way: “Money is my very essence, which when properly expressed, returns to me as an all-sufficiency of legal tender, to be used in exchange for goods and services.”

Now we see that in its original form (energy), money has already been distributed equally among all souls on the planet, and an equal opportunity exists right now for every single individual to enjoy a full measure of visible abundance. You are your own money. Money is you!

A Deeper Understanding of Money for Individual Prosperity
In my description of money, three words in the statement need further emphasis. They are: when properly expressed. You see, unless you create a cause with your natural energy through expression, you can’t have an effect. Your energy is expressed (or invested), and the yield is your return in the form of visible supply.

How do you express your energy, your very Essence? Through your thoughts, feelings, words, and physical activities all combined in a daily program of meditation, controlled visualization, intense love, joyful thanksgiving, verbal harmlessness, and right action-in this case, for the express purpose of cultivating your energy field for the harvest of money.

Uh-oh . . . was there a little blip or negative tug in your consciousness when the term harvest of money was used? Do you still think that money is the root of all evil? (The worship of money is, but not money itself.) Let me say again that “money” is simply a medium of exchange, what people use to exchange for goods and services, a part of the physical-living process while on Earth, or your energy made visible. Instead of equating money with greed, selfishness, exploitation, and bondage, think of benevolence, generosity, goodwill, and freedom, which are the spiritual values of visible money supply.

Let’s continue. We were talking about cultivating your energy field, or conditioning your consciousness. Here’s an outline of the daily program I was referring to:

1. Meditation
Personally, I feel that The 40-Day Prosperity Plan is a must. Even after the initial 40 days, continue by meditating on one or more of the ten statements each day to maintain the abundance vibration in consciousness.

The principles of abundance as discussed in Part II don’t conflict with Part III. For example, I say in the second section, “Money is an effect. When you concentrate on the effect, you’re forgetting the cause, and when you forget the cause, the effect begins to diminish. When you focus your attention on getting money, you’re actually shutting off your supply. You must cease believing that money is your substance, your supply, your support, your security, or your safety. Money isn’t-but God is!”

Now look again at my definition of money: my own natural energy yield. The yield is the effect or the outer symbol of the inner supply, while the cause is your God-given Essence-the Energy that underlies the outer manifestation. Think of it this way: The spiritual definition of money is both cause and effect, invisible and visible, consciousness and form, giver and gift. But we don’t focus on money-in-form as our supply. Rather, we contemplate and recognize the energy of money, which is our spiritual consciousness, and we let the form appear. Please make sure that you understand this point before moving on.

2. Controlled Visualization
Before I share the visualization that was given to me by my Higher Self, I want to tell you about a realization I had years ago. In a particular state of consciousness (and corresponding financial hole) that I was in at the time, I kept looking for a miracle. Now miracles are wonderful, and “there’s no order of difficulty in miracles”-but the particular miracle that I wanted was the sudden manifestation of money without the consciousness for it. You know, the doorbell rings, and when you open the door there’s a huge basket full of money, or the heavens open up and manna-as-money falls in your lap, and so on.

While I considered God as the Source of my supply, I didn’t quite understand that Spirit’s primary outlet for manifestation in the third-dimensional plane was through people. I hadn’t had the awakening that each one of us is Spirit’s channel for each other. In fact, I turned away from people in a false sense of spiritual pride. What do they know about spiritual abundance? I thought. And the hole got deeper.

Until we reach the level of consciousness where we can instantly manifest form out of substance, our visible supply comes through other souls on this planet. Since people are the energy of money, we’re in truth sharing ourselves, our essence, with each other.

About this time, someone will raise the point that in The 40-Day Prosperity Plan, I write: ” . . . if you look to any human person, place, or condition for your supply, you are shutting down the flow. If you give power to any mortal as even being the channel for your supply, you are limiting your good.” And that’s a fact! We don’t look to any particular individual for our good, nor do we specify any mortal channel as the source of our supply. This is “outlining,” and such a practice is in violation of Universal law. However, we do recognize that the “yield” (our visible money supply) will flow to us through and from physical beings living on this planet in exchange for something given.

    I really like explanation about money as energy. Because all things in this world basiccaly is energy and energy consist of vibration.
    In my teaching also explain about energy I called it human electro magnetic so if you have quite enough energy in yoyr consciousness so what John Randolph Price said is right, it’s through visualization and one of the important is you must get the FEEL when you do it.
    Recommended for people like attract wealth and prosperity through consciuosness.

  2. Betty-Ann Heggie Says:

    I agee that money is an outward expression of our inward supply. I blog about women and our relationship with wealth and believe that one of the reasons that we have trouble accumulating money is because the attributes of our gender are placed in such low esteem by society. Those feelings are reflected back to us and we feel a lack of value that then affects our ability to create abundance. I also see money as a metaphor for our relationship with the world.
