My plan tonight was to study. There’s this book called Mastery, by Robert Greene that I really need to finish reading. I have been slacking on my reading lately. You know, how it is, life sometimes gets in in front of the best of us…
Freshly showered, Kindle in hand, I begin my search for the most comfortable “lounging-in-bed” position so I can sink into my book.
When I out of nowhere. I’m hit by desire. Well, maybe it wasn’t all that “out of nowhere.” It was a voice on the other end of the phone. It was a call that came after my shower, but before I found the perfect position. A voice that wakes every inch of my flesh and ignites my soul. A trillion-dollar net worth with assets voice… A businessman, who won’t hesitate to “knuckle-up” if the situations deemed it necessary.
Yep, that’s the kind of voice it is. The voice of the Supreme Ruler, The Solar Controller, The Master Builder. His is the voice of God. And I want him so bad.
WHOA…. WAIT!!!! REFOCUS.
I remind myself that I’m building an empire. I am working on some goals. I’m manifesting some dreams. I attempt to go back to my book. I must master these principles.
I feel his presence, as if he is right next to me. I mean, I can literally feel the heat radiating from his skin. I respond to the touch of an invisible hand. It is a hand so powerful it penetrates time and space.
I just can’t help but laugh at myself. I want him so bad… There is a power within him that draws me in. There is a peace he brings without a word. There is a bond between us I can’t explain. It isn’t something I even want to name. It is simply understood.
Our dance is beautiful and timeless. We have met in other times. We will meet in many more. I’m grateful for all that he is, a living fantasy. Ok Enough of that….
Now, back to my book. I must master this shit. I have goals, plan, and dreams. Besides. I heard somewhere where that millionaires have sex 4 times as much as non-millionaires. SO, I MUST MASTER THIS SHIT. It is time for me to grind. There’s money being made out there and I want my share.
My current problem??? How do I get you to understand that I can help you make more money and keep it? What do I need to do to get you to let me help you heal your relationship with money? I will figure it out… I MUST MASTER THIS SHIT. Like I said, I have goals to reach.
Everyone needs money. This is not a declaration of some secret truth I recently discovered. It is a fact. I’m 100% sure that it is a statement that we all can agree on.
If we intend to remain in the land of the living for any length of time, we will need things and things cost money. Wallace Wattles, the author of the classic book, The Science of Getting Rich, puts it this way.
“WHATEVER may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich.”
This is one of my favorite books, because like the author, I don’t see the accumulation of material wealth as a luxury, it is a necessity. I see no justification for choosing poverty as a way of life.
Anything, that resembles poverty or struggle is unacceptable. Poverty is unnecessary. I suppose, it goes without saying that I’m an advocate for material wealth. That is, I believe that the more money we all have, the better it is for all of us.
Wattles writes, “In this book, I shall not speak of riches in a figurative way; to be really rich does not mean to be satisfied or contented with a little. No man ought to be satisfied with a little if he is capable of using and enjoying more.” I agree.
There is another important reason I love “The Science of Getting Rich” so much. It is because it draws a clear connection between Metaphysics and Money in such a simple way. There are those who will say that you can’t be rich and spiritual at the same time. I believe that you can’t have money without spirituality.
As Wallace Wattles Says, “There is a Thinking Substance from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe. The thought of a form, in this Substance, produces the form; the thought of a motion institutes the motion. In relation to man, the thoughts of Original Substance are always of perfect health and perfect functioning.”
This doesn’t mean that I believe that simply thinking of money will directly produce it in your life. I know that financial success is the result of right actions. Thinking is where right action begins. The truth is that your financial success depends on your habits. Your habits are nothing more, than consistent actions. Those action are determined by your thoughts and beliefs. This is where we will begin our Journey.
Truly, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when mixed with purpose, persistence, and aburning desirefor their translation into riches or other material objects.” – Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich)
We live in an interesting time in history. We have watched in amazement as a virus shut the entire world down and forever changed life as we know it. It seems that if it weren’t for bad news there wouldn’t be any.
We are hit daily with reports of death, dis-ease, and despair. I will be the first to admit that keeping your thoughts positive takes some work. I will also be the first to tell you that bringing your thoughts under submission is not optional if you are serious about improving your finances.
Why is it so important to be protective of your thoughts? It is because what you think about determines your beliefs. And your belief determines your actions. These actions become your habits. Your habits are a key factor in your financial success.
It is my intention to give you a step-by-step guide to at once increase your cash flow, save properly, and put your money to work to make more money. If followed this guide will open the door to generational wealth.
Your thoughts will play a key role in determining how much you benefit from this guide. To quote another famous, wealth creator, Henry Ford, “If you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right. Opportunities exist in abundance. It is your thinking that cause you to miss them.
The Poem “Invictus” was written in 1875. It ends with the lines. “I am the Master of my Fate. I am the Captain of my Soul.” This is true. You are the master of your fate and captain of your soul because you have the power to control and direct your thoughts. The power you have makes no distinction between positive and negative thoughts. It will manifest poverty into reality just as quickly as it will manifest wealth.
You see your brain acts a transmitting and receiving station. It is magnetized by the thoughts you focus most of your attention on. People, situations, circumstances, and events that come into your life reflect your thoughts. If you are poverty conscious you will experience poverty. If you are prosperity conscious you will experience prosperity.
Napoleon Hill, the author of “Think and Grow Rich” says, “One of the main weaknesses of mankind is the average person’s familiarity with the word “impossible,” He knows all the rules that will not work. He knows all the things that cannot be done.” That is a profound statement. What Napoleon Hill is saying is that the main reason you struggle is because you don’t believe you can live without struggle. You don’t believe you can have so, you have not. The very idea is heartbreaking to me.
You see, I became a Metaphysician because I wanted to help people step into their power and walk in their magnificence. It wasn’t long before I realized that the people, I wanted to help the most could afford to pay me the least.
This was a real problem for me. I also had a problem with the fact that so many people believe you can’t have money and be spiritual. I love financial literacy and economic empowerment as much as I love metaphysics. I decided to become certified in financial literacy education, counseling, and coaching and the concept of Financial Rehabilitation Therapy was born.
It is my mission to educate you about concepts, system, tools, resources, and strategies that will, first put some money in your pocket so that you are empowered to create generational wealth.
You can then, pass the things you learn down to your future generations so that your family is always protected. It is more than a way to make a living for me. This is what I was ordained to do. It is my calling. And I am awesome at it.
It makes no sense for so many of us to beg, struggle, and scrape by when there are so many opportunities available for us to have more.
It never ceasesto amaze me how some people will settle for nearly anything they can get. Especially when it comes to love and money, two of the most important aspects of life. I, as much as anyone else, have had my share of lean times when it comes to both, love and money.
I believe that there is a period, in the developmental phase of life; when you haven’t quite put your finger on who you are and why you are here, where judgement and reasoning is clouded by desire and insecurity.
During this period, it is understandable that one would settle for a dead-end job, and less that fulfilling relationships. I also believe that this phase is a part of growth and at some point, one should transcend it. You know, grow up and expand. At some point, everyone should begin to recognize their own power.
I honestly, believe that there is an almost tangible shift that occurs in a properly oriented individual. It is a shift that takes one from the path of “life by default” to “life by design”. I say that this shift occurs in properly oriented individuals because, I believe that there are those among us that have remained in suspended animation of the developmental phase so long that any kind of positive growth and development is beyond their willingness to accomplish.
It is not that they are incapable of change, anyone who has the desire to do so can change their lives at will. I simply believe that some people have stagnated so long that unless some drastic event intervened in their lives, they are incapable of generating the desire require to make the necessary changes.
There are those who will forfeit their greatness for a life of mediocrity because they can not bear the weight of self-responsibility. These are the ones who will stay on a job they hate for years of their lives, and disregard every opportunity that the meet as a scam, simply because it is easier to blame their fact that their lives suck on the job.
Everyone know that when you break away from the pseudo-security of the job, you are responsible for yourself. Freedom has never been free. It requires one to stretch, to grow, to fail, and to think. It requires one to become more than what they are. This most likely will lead to disapproval, something that many people simply cannot tolerate.
There are those who will bend over backward to stay in a relationship that stands between them and their power, simply because it is better than being alone. I have heard, my idol, Les Brown, ask “Are you living together or are you dying together?” I do believe I would rather be living alone than dying with anyone. It has never taken me long to know if a relationship was good or bad for me.
There was a time when it took me a long time to do something about it. There was a time when I would sit around hoping for the miracle that would change a man, so that he would realize the treasure he had in me. That was a long time ago. Life has taught me that I can love anyone from a distance.
There are situations where this is necessary. Because no matter how you slice it relationships affect finances. And well, finance is my life. I am The Money Metaphysician, after all. I earn my living teaching about money, writing about money, helping some people heal their relationships with money, and helping others make money. Anything that gets between myself and my money must go and anything that insults my soul also must go.
There is nothing to discuss, there is nothing to consider, there is nothing to think about. I am always the one who has the final say about what I will and will and will not tolerate in my life. I know that anytime I am walking with another, either I must adjust to their pace or they must adjust to mine. I am on my way somewhere. I am on a deadline. Anyone who cannot go where I am going cannot walk with me. Anyone that slows me down or hold me back cannot walk with me.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is let go. A closed hand will not let anything out. It also will not let anything in. But what if letting go made room for the unfolding of your magnificence. What if your greatness was on the other side of that heartbreak or that pink slip? What would you be if you were free to choose YOU?
What if you put yourself first, for once in your life? What if you took the time to learn more about the next opportunity that came your way instead of dismissing it? What if told that man or woman who is sucking up your time and energy to clear the runway so that you can take off. What would happen if YOU WERE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LIFE? The truth is you are your greatest asset. Take care of you.
A Note to My Readers:This post was originally written and published on November 23, 2017. At the time it was to be a part of a book called “Every Woman Should Know… Well, the book has yet to be written. Life and Circumstances took me in a different direction. I hope you all enjoy my old work as well as the new things my mind creates. Thank You all for your continued love and support over the years. With Love TalibahAset
1.Sex and love are not equivalent or necessarily related.
2. The primary reason you can not find love, is you haven’t learned to receive it, especially from yourself.
3. You can not be responsible for what you can not control, let it go
4. Being a spoiled, petulant child of a woman is not the same thing as being Queen..The Queen often, sacrifices her wants for the needs of others..It’s her JOB
I often took my children fishing when they were young. It is a wonderful way to teach children about patience. Adults can learn a thing or two as well. When you are fishing, you cast your line, and then wait. The fish bite in their own time. There isn’t one thing you can do to speed up the process. You wait or quit.
Waiting is hard especially when you are experiencing a difficult situation. Sometimes we find ourselves wanting to do something when the situation calls for patience and perseverance.
Often, being forced to wait can be beneficial if we use it to meditate, contemplate, and reflect. Time is a wonderful ally to those who have the kind of inner strength that empowers them to quietly work within themselves, while sticking to the path they have charted.
There will be times when others think you are literally bat shit crazy for not giving up and doing something that may yield faster results. I know all about that. I set out on this path many years ago. There have been times when I didn’t know where my next meal would come from.
All I have ever really known was that I was called to the path and couldn’t leave it. I knew that no matter how hard things got I would make it because it is what I was ordained to do. All the hardships are simply a part of the process, a special kind of on the job training.
No, I did not come into this world, “TalibahAset: The Money Metaphysician.” I did come into the world with all the gifts, talents, and abilities that would eventually become “The Money Metaphysician.”
They were so deeply hidden at one point; you wouldn’t have even seen a glimpse of what I am today. The Money Metaphysician was born from hardships and patience. I had to learn to persevere, to bend time, and keep a positive attitude.
If you also learn to persevere, bend time, and keep a positive attitude you will find that even the toughest obstacles must give way to time.
If you also learn to persevere, bend time, and keep a positive attitude you will find that even the toughest obstacles must give way to time. When we rush a thing, impatiently forcing the results, we stimulate resistance and cause the very setbacks we are trying to avoid. At best you will succeed on the surface, and at worst have the whole project blow up in your face.
It is steadfastness, holding to your integrity in the face of obstacles, criticisms, loss, or whatever life might toss your way that will lead you to the permanent improvements you truly desire. In the end, it’s patience that will bring to you the fruition of your greatness. Be focused. Be determined. And BE PATIENT.
A Note to My Readers:“The Divine Standard of Beauty was originally written and published on November 22, 2016. As I have grown as a writer and finally settled into “My Thing” I realized that I have a body of work spread out over the web and have decided to bring it all home to the “Words, Wealth, Wellness & Womanhood blog. I hope you all will enjoy seeing how my work has grown over the years. I have made some slight edits and corrections but the message has remained untouched. Thank you for all of you continued love and support over the years.” – With Love TalibahAset
