8 Rules of the Mind: Teaching
you one of these rules a week. Introducing
a rule a week. Have taught
five of these rules, will give Rule # 6 next week, as today’s topic
Materializing wealth is BIG.
Last week group was challenged to manifest some extra money. We suggested making it an amount of money you could believe possible for you to get in the amount of time you programmed for getting it.
Received an email from Sheri Menelli – a teacher and manifestor herself –who wrote two very interesting things. First, her goal was to manifest $419 by Feb. 20th and what she received was $41.90 exactly ten percent of her goal. We think this is a meaningful message from her Higher Self and perhaps by the end of this seminar, Sheri will know what that message is. (And indeed, Sheri called before the beginning of the seminar with her thoughts, we'll share them with you next week.) The second interesting thing was her daughter, Allie, (age 6) listened to the seminar too and she wrote down she would get $50 for Webkins toys. Allie did not get the $50 and Sheri asked if we’d noted whether children are slower or faster at manifesting and wondered if maybe it isn't good for them to attract their thoughts until they have a better understanding of what they are doing.
"And a little child shall lead them" . . . . Allie led us into pondering more deeply the matter of manifestation and here is what we realized: It’s about consciousness; which light and now we define as awareness and understanding. (Interestingly Sheri called us the day after we discussed this to say she felt the reason Allie had not manifested the $50 was because she had the awareness of money and what to do with it, but not the understanding of money and how to use it wisely!)
The point of physical form is to provide the limitations and thus the challenges souls use to learn about and express their creator light. Thus, as spirit we manifest form instantly in the realms of mental/astral thought. The moment you programmed your goal, your mind manifested it in the mental/astral realm. Materialization – physical manifestation – is a demonstration of consciousness. It shows where a person is or is not in their awareness and understanding.
Example 1: Lotto Winners who lose all their money lack the consciousness – the awareness and understanding of how to manage money in relation to themselves and those who want to share in their money.
Example 2: Britney Spears – a child in an adult’s world of fame and wealth lacking the consciousness – the awareness, understanding and thus the know how of dealing with fame and wealth; thus becoming consumed by it. Whether Ms. Spear’s soul is a spiritual teacher or has volunteered to be used by spiritual teachers for purposes of demonstration or what is unfolding is her own life lesson – she is certainly demonstrating to the masses the importance of consciousness.
Imagine if children were able to materialize their whims at whim – they, too, would be consumed by their whims. Thus the laws of consciousness and materialization protect them. As adults, we are better prepared to deal with the consequences of our thoughts and actions. So how does one teach children – and adults – to grow their power to physically materialize their mental manifestations? It is a step by step process and let’s begin that process with Napoleon Hill.
Hill wrote a book about the secret to materializing wealth long before The
Secret was written and to our minds his book – Think and Grow Rich - is
a much better book because it tells the truth.
believe they are telling the truth when they teach or preach all one has to do
is intend and affirm a thing clearly and one receives it.
Many believe they are telling the truth when they teach or preach all one
has to do is pray and if one is worthy one will receive it.
these beliefs are truth. If they
were there would be a whole lot more physical materialization going on and a lot
less poverty, illness, disease, misfortune and tragedy.
there is something ‘more’ to physical materialization than belief and prayer

Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire.
It is not sufficient to say I want plenty of money or I want to be rich
or I want to be wealthy. Be
definite as to the amount. (Our
note: You can grow more wealth with
your money, but set the amount you want initially.)
Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money
you desire. (This is truly
brilliant in our opinion as it is difficult if not impossible to convince
oneself consciously or subconsciously that one can get something for nothing.
The Universe does not work that way.)
Establish a definite date you intend to possess the money you desire.
Create a definite plan for creating your desire and begin at once,
whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to
acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give
for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to

How To Find/Know Your Burning Desire/Dream & How To Apply The Six
Steps For Materializing Wealth.
Sarah Breedlove McWilliams Walker, better known as Madame CJ
Walker was born in 1867 in poverty-stricken rural Louisiana, a daughter of
former slaves. Orphaned at age of
seven, she survived by working in the cotton fields, married at age fourteen,
and after her husband died two years later, she traveled to St. Louis to join
her four brothers who had established themselves as barbers. She worked as a
laundrywoman. A scalp ailment
caused her to lose some of her hair. Embarrassed by her appearance, she
experimented with a variety of home-made remedies and products made by another
black woman entrepreneur, Annie Malone. In 1905, Sarah became a sales agent for
Malone and moved to Denver, where she married Charles Joseph Walker.
Changing her name to Madame CJ
Walker, she founded her own business and began selling her own product –a
scalp conditioning and healing formula, which she concocted after having a dream
in which an ancestor told her to pick the berries on a certain bush in the woods
near her home and gave her, in the dream, the formula to make from them.
Later, she began selling her products door to door, giving
demonstrations, and working on sales and marketing strategies. In 1908, she
opened a college in Pittsburgh to train her "hair culturists."
Eventually, her products formed the basis of a thriving national
corporation employing at one point over 3,000 people. Her Walker System, which
included a broad offering of cosmetics, licensed Walker Agents, and Walker
Schools offered meaningful employment and personal growth to thousands of Black
women. Madame Walker’s aggressive marketing strategy combined with relentless
ambition led her to be labeled as the first known African-American woman to
become a self-made millionaire. Having
amassed a fortune in fifteen years, C.J. Walker died at the age of 52.
