Today I studied “The Law of Compensation” (chapter 7 in Working with the Law by Raymond Holliwell).
This law is all about having a positive self image, so that you know of yourself that you’re providing value, and thus value will be rewarded back to you.
I love this line: “Your right place is where you can enjoy success and plenty; this is natural, as the Law intended; your failure to realize these things is a miscalculation, a mistake.”
This is changing everything for me. Instead of looking at “the haves” and feeling like a “have not,” this concept says everyone is a “have”! In Chapter 12, “The Law of Success,” Holliwell says, “God intended every individual to succeed. It is God’s purpose that man should become great. It is God’s will that man should not only use, but enjoy every good in the universe. The Law of God denies man nothing.”
Man = me! AND you!
It goes on to say “Man is made for progress…Advancement into all things is the Law’s great purpose.” This means God wants you to grow and try new things and have endless opportunities to experience goodness.
(Sidebar: I don’t know if you know this, but I’d suffered with depression and anxiety for many of my adult years. After fashion school, I was so burnt out that I checked myself into a 3 week intensive outpatient therapy program. The therapy was great…and so was the Prozac. 2 years later, after my divorce, I went off Prozac and it was not easy. For me, what I’m learning in the Bob Proctor Coaching program is helping me heal from the inside out. I have never been so inspired, happy, calm, wise, enthusiastic, excited, and on-purpose. I know now that I will never choose to be negative again. There’s no reason to be. Immersing myself in this kind of thinking has opened my eyes to my personal power.)
I didn’t mean to turn this blog entry into an informercial…but here’s a good example of me feeling great!!
Okay, so back to Compensation…and this is where we attack some more paradigms I have about money!
Holliwell states, “If you are not succeeding, if you lack any good thing, look more closely to the cause. It is not outside; it is somewhere within. See where you fail to use the Law correctly or where you fail in your consciousness to think rightly. There are three points common in everyday life where one may fall into a snare and a delusion:
- Do you EXPECT SOMETHING FOR NOTHING? This is violating the law. If you, knowingly cheat another of a dollar, it may cost you many dollars for the mistake.
- Do you hunt for things that are cheap? There’s energy in words, and the energy in the word “cheap” is cheap! “Cheap thoughts can only bring cheap returns. You place yourself in a vibration that limits your thought to a state where you support underselling, cutting, bankruptcy and dishonesty on the part of the seller.
- Do you HATE TO PAY YOUR BILLS? Stop! Release money cheerfully, when you realize the value of what you’re paying for. Note how you love and are grateful for the service that the bill represents: the warmth and security of your heating bill; the safe food that is protected in your electric refrigerator; the connection you have to others with your internet and phone bills! Send this money forth with gratitude. Holliwell says that this kind of increase of appreciation increases the flow of abundance, like a faucet.
That’s all I got for today. I’m sure I will have a part 3 and probably part 4 on the topic of Money. It’ll be like Fast and Furious over here.
