The Greatest Secret Of All

Is there anyone you know (yourself included) who would not want to experience greater abundance in all areas of their lives? A deceptively simple book beckoned me recently into an exploration of that desire.  Called “The Greatest Seret of All”, it was penned by Marc Allen; who along with Shakti Gawain (best known for her book “Creative Visualization”),  co-founded New World Library.

What immediately grabbed my attention was the story Marc shared of the resistance he had to attracting abundance.  His thoughts were hammering away at him, especially those of a self deprecating nature. He had bought into the beliefs about money being evil and that he was a loser since he had what he thought of us “the opposite of the Midas Touch”.

What turned things around for him, was learning from Masters of attraction such as Jesus, Gandhi and Buddha,as well as spiritual texts such as The Bhagavad Gita. He drank in a book written by Lenedra J. Carroll called “The Architecture of All Abundance” . Most importantly, he practiced daily what he was learning.

The powerful spiritual invocation:

“Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you will find.”  was a guide for Marc along his journey from feeling like a “loser with money”, to a being a “magician with money.”

In The Greatest Secret, Marc offers portable tools to use immediately, which include affirmations, creating an image of his ideal life, coming up with a goal list and following through with action steps.

 My own journey from living in scarcity (or as my friend Alan Cohen calls it::  scare-city) to joyfully doing an ‘a-bun-dance’, came from growing up in a middle class-blue collar home where there was always enough, but fear lurking around corner that there might not be, so my father, a devoted to his family workaholic, had what we called ‘crazy hours’ as a milk man and then bus driver.  I learned from a Master there myself, since my own working hours resemble his…full tiime job in a hospital and then a whole bunch of consulting work that at some points equals 80 hours a week…YIKES!  all in an effort to insure financial security. Sometimes have felt like a hamster on a wheel…getting nowhere fast. Then I began to take a closer look at my ideas about money. In my extended family, the wealthier ones were men in mainstream business.  There were no role models for independently wealthy women who were creative right brain types like me. I decided that I would break the mold.  For years, I have been writing the very things that Marc speaks of. I have been growing a new attitude. I have been asking for what my work is worth, as a coach I had worked with a few years ago encouraged me:  “without stuttering.”  I have come to KNOW that there is nothing unspiritual about money and that even though I am a minister and do spiritual work, my creditors expect me to pay them the same as they would if I were in any other profession.

As a result, more opportunities are showing up and I willingly embrace them. So, I invite you to explore your own perceptions about abundance (not just the green stuff), but in all aspects of your wondrous life.
