I´ve just come from reading Lena Steven´s monthly forecast on Committment at thepowerpath.com. You guys are lucky. Really lucky. Because of that article, I have decided to openly publish the ritual that I would be performing for you at the official WUB opening tomorrow night. The reason is this: I am committing myself to service. Fully. No sitting on the fence. No trying to postpone the workshop until a later date so I can capitalize on it financially. Nope. I am publishing the ritual so that all of you can do it at home. Many people have written that they are out of town and want to do the ritual anyhow. I can´t in good conscience say no. The Wesak Full Moon is the biggest, brightest and most powerful moon of the whole year. This ritual will work. It worked for me last year big time. All you have to do is really put some thought and effort into it.
You will need: a white candle, a bowl or receptacle you can burn something in, your list, a small empty box or chest (the prettier the better), sage (optional).
Last post I told you how to write your list. This list is the most important part of the ritual. Hopefully, you´ve been collecting now for a few days all the negative tapescript in your head that tell you you can´t be wealthy, you can´t get what you need or want, you aren´t worth it, you don´t deserve it. All this crap has got to go if you want to change your beliefs about material wealth. What I heard from my inner self last year when I did this ceremony was this: “If you are to become a Master, a true Master, then you must be a Master on all levels. Master of relationships, of health of spiritual integrity, and so you must also be a Master of material wealth. Of creating what you need, of manifesting your desires, of drawing wealth to you. Material abundance is just another facet of reality. And there is nothing wrong with it. It is time for you to be a Master of money, too.”
That was rather long-winded, but it explains exactly what was holding me back. Once I got that, I was able to shift my thinking towards becoming more empowered on that level. It was my biggest block.
How to Do it
At night, when the moon is bright and full, light your white candle and sit quietly for a few moments, breathing deeply and rhythmically. Read through your list and make sure there is nothing missing. Just pour it all out. All the negative belief patterns from your parents or peers that are keeping your from accepting money into your life. Write it all down.
When you feel ready, take your list and go out into the garden or onto the balcony with a smudge bowl, ceramic bowl or some receptacle you can safely use to contain a small fire. Throw in a little sage into the bowl if you have some lying around. Address the moon and your Highest Self and proclaim out loud that through the action of burning your list, you destroy (use the present tense!) now and forever the limiting values and thoughts that are keeping you from abundance. Do this unhurriedly and really focus on your confidence before you set the match to paper. You want to muster as much committment to ridding yourself of these limiting beliefs as possible. That means you must also muster feelings that this ritual will work. When you are certain that your burning of the list will get rid of those limiting beliefs, set the paper on fire in the bowl. Watch it burn completely and keep thinking and feeling how those limiting beliefs are burning away with the smoke from the fire.
Take some time in silence to give thanks to the power of the moon and your Higher Self for helping you with the ritual. Then go back inside.
Sit quietly for a moment in the stillness of your being. Try to find the place inside you that resonates completely with your spirit. What you are doing now is empowering yourself with your pure spirit. It helps sometimes to envision a natural element or animal of power. You communicate with the spirit of a mountain or a tiger or a powerful storm. You ask that element to share its power with you. Gather your power quietly for a few minutes.
Then take out a clean sheet of paper. On this paper slowly and mindfully write down at least ten, but even 20 empowering affirmations about wealth and prosperity in the present tense. I like to use fancy paper and a fountain pen, as if I am writing out a contract to myself. These are your new beliefs you are committing yourself to, so pay attention now! Be mindful as you write of how true these affirmations are for you right now in this moment of empowerment. Such phrases could be
- The universal supply is limitless and I am entitled to all beauty, bounty and abundance as my divine birthright.
- The creator is my source of my supply and abundance.
- Abundance in all forms flows to me easily in God´s perfect way.
- I am infinitely abundant.
- I am worthy of abundance and therefore all financial doors are open to me now.
- I am the abundance of the universe.
- The abundant wealth of the universe flows through me now.
- I will allow the abundant good of the universe to manifest through me now, in my mind, emotions, body and affairs. (Borrowed from Ronna Herman´s Scripting Your Destiny)
Any variations on these affirmations are acceptable, as long as they ring true to you and are stated in the present tense. I even repeat some that really resonate with me.
When you are finished with your new list of beliefs about money and abundance, put them in a special box. This box will be your abundance box or treasure chest. In this box you can put other items that symbolize abundance to you such as coins, gems, jewellery, any kind of precious objects.
You should also regularly put money in this box and use that money for luxury items. Don´t pay your bills with the money you put in this box! Show the universe that you feel abundant by allowing yourself to splurge a little. Take yourself out for dinner, buy a new book or cd, some clothes. There needs to be interaction between you and your abundance box. Remember that money needs to circulate for it to come back to you. Regularly put money in there and then use it for something fun and frivolous or for something you´ve wanted for a long time. Spend the money on yourself.
Don´t forget that wealth means so much more than just money and “things”. Your health, your relationships, opportunities and creativity are all forms of wealth. At night before bed you can go through your mind of all the things you feel lucky to have in your life. It´s just another ritual that focuses your power and imagination on the feelings of gratefulness for what you have, and not for what you lack. Manifestation is about charging your thoughts with feelings and making room for what you feel you deserve in your life.
At the end of the ritual, simply blow out the white candle you lit and turn the lights back up.
I would love to hear any reports on the success of your ritual in days and weeks to come. Please do leave a comment! Have an amazing Wesak Moon!!
