Expanding Our Prosperity Consciousness by Rev. Christine Emmerling, 7/30/2023

“Expanding Our Prosperity Consciousness” by Rev. Christine Emmerling 7/30/2023

Today I’m speaking about Expanding Our Prosperity Consciousness and opening up to unexpected income. Most people consider their income to be fixed at a preset amount. The term “fixed income” automatically implies a sense of limitation. That you get this much to live on and that’s it.

In Truth our financial wealth can only be limited by our ability to receive. First let's identify our source. Most people think of their source as their employer, retirement fund, or the person who doles out the money. Or, they think of their wallet, bank account, credit cards. These are not our source. These are channels, or the ways in which we are receiving.

In Luke 6:32 & 38, Jesus says “It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” “Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, shaken down and running over they will pour into your robe. For with the measure that you measure, it will be measured to you.”

Our source is unlimited, we have an unlimited, inexhaustible source we call God, Father, Spirit or Omnipresence. And where is this God? Everywhere, both visible and invisible! Therefore, our source, our unlimited wealth, is everywhere, including right here within us - within our own consciousness. We recognize there are limitless channels for our receiving. We are also a channel for God’s infinite Good to flow through.

Ask ourselves, “How good am I as a channel for God’s good to flow through?” Are my channels restricted by fear, guilt, anger, unworthiness, or in beliefs of lack and limitation? All substance is Spirit, consciousness, and energy. That which constricts my energy, restricts my ability to give and receive.

Since God is all and unlimited then God’s channels for prosperity are also unlimited. This means we have the potential to have as much prosperity as we are open to receiving. Imagine how much good we could do with all that money? People like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates see their wealth as a means to make this a better world. They are wide open channels for receiving and giving - a complete flow. The law of circulation in action.

I once heard, “God can get to you only what God can get through you.” If stopped up with unloving thoughts and feelings, then love and our good measure just can’t flow through us. To unplug we need to raise our vibration to the frequency of love.

How about are sense of worthiness? How do we love our self? Or, better yet, do we even love our self? Do we have our long list of why we aren’t good enough? Then begin to think about what we do know of God; that we are made of the very same substance, in the same image and likeness of God, and all is very good. How then can we possibly not love our self?

In Matt 6:37-38, Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” Let us begin then by loving our own self, by being that love, having that love flow and radiate through and as us.

Pay attention to the mind chatter, that ongoing tape that plays in the head throughout the day. Is it loving, kind, and helpful? If not, then replace the tape with Truth. Affirmations are a proven method to rewriting our mental script. Our mental state of mind sets our inner vibration. Our inner vibration, or energy field sets up our ability to attract our good. Love expands our energy field while fear and negative thoughts contract.

Appreciation, gratitude expands the heart and love energy. First thing in the morning and at night think of at least five things that you appreciate and are grateful for in your life. This is a form of loving God with all your heart and mind.

In Matt. 6:7-15, called The Lord’s prayer, tells us to forgive so that we may also be forgiven. Then in Matt. 18:22, Jesus said to forgive your brother 70 x 7. Withholding forgiveness to anyone, including oneself, is an attack against yourself. If you’re being restricted in prosperity, health or relationships, then forgiveness needs to be worked on.

The following is an exercise to open our heart. Let us say, starting with our first name “(Name)I love you.” How did that feel? Does it feel true? Think upon this, “I Am the activity of Love in Action.” (Repeat) This activity of “I Am” is the action of God, our Creator within us. God within us is our unlimited source and flow of love as wealth. Divine Presence, God, is unconditional love, therefore I am loved unconditionally. Now let us affirm: “I am loved, I am love, and I am loving.” (Repeat) Again say, with your name “(Name) I love you.” How did that feel?

I had mentioned forgiveness as a way to open our flow to prosperity. Forgiveness is about love, it's about having compassion towards another person or for yourself. Either we are freely giving love or withholding it. If withholding it becomes like a dam. Nothing more can get in, not even a trickle. So let us begin to open up our flow. Select one person in mind to forgive; a family member, a friend, a foe, yourself, a political leader, past or present, dead or alive - it doesn’t matter. I’ll give us a moment to select.

We will now bring our attention to the heart center. Breathing in through our heart and exhaling through our heart. Feel the heart’s aliveness - sense its opening. Now imagine this person that you have selected to forgive as facing you. Our love begins to flow from our heart to their heart as a radiant light that continues to grow and encompass the two of us together. See this light with your imagination.

Next, we say with feeling, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.” (Repeat) “Forgive me Father for I know not what I do.” “Forgive us Father for we know not what we do.” Embrace each other and release. We give our thanks to God for this opportunity to be the activity of love in action.

Now for our belief system. Paul says in Romans 12:2, “Do not be conformed to this world, but transformed by the renewing of your mind.” This world can be our family, friends, co-workers, or all those sales ads trying to tell us how to believe or what to desire. Yet, Paul is telling us not to conform, to not believe and become as others want. But to have our own sense of what is right for us, and that is done through the renewing of our mind. Discovering Truth teachings and applying them in our life.

So often we may say we want something, that new job, car, house, jackpot but deep down we just don’t believe it can be true for us. That is known as the secondary thought or gut feeling. The conscious mind and subconscious mind are in conflict.

Guess what happens when there is conflict, the desire is cancelled out because the underlying feeling is stronger than the thought, in other words our belief system overrides what we think we want. It's about becoming congruent within oneself. The mind and feelings working together.

Emmet Fox calls it having the mental equivalent for what we desire. People will say they want to win a million dollars but take a cup of consciousness to receive it. We need to build a believing consciousness, or a mental equivalent. When our beliefs change, the outer expression must change to correspond. Prayer and affirmations are a means to changing our beliefs.

This requires having an open mind in being receptive to receiving our good measure. Being open minded is having the faith to believe in miracles, and the trust to just try it. It is being open to suggestions, new ideas, and to see it differently that leads us to our unexpected income. It is believing in what we cannot see, knowing that in Truth it is already done – it was created in mind and heart, thought and desire, and set forth to be manifested. It is having our eyes and ears open, paying attention to that which is around us. Signs are being sent all the time, and we just never know when money will be found right before our feet.

Being receptive goes along with being open minded except one step further. It opens us to our inner guidance, saying “yes” when asked to work overtime, or do a special favor for family member or friend, or extending our self to helping a stranger. By expanding our mind and heart we increase our avenues for receiving.

Some people want something for nothing. This is not a get rich quick scheme. We are demonstrating principle. There is always an exchange of energy. This exchange may be money, physical work, being helpful, giving a gift, feeding the poor or showing gratitude. The means and ways are endless. Be creative, your giving doesn’t have to be expensive, it can be a compliment, a smile, a blessing. When our giving, prayers and affirmations are combined watch for those miracles to come forth. We are really speaking about the law of circulation. Circulating our energy – God energy – Love energy.

Nothing is outside of our self. God is everywhere present that means God is all that we are. That absolutely everything comes from consciousness. There is only one consciousness - that of God. The power and intelligence of God is expressing in and through everyone right here and now. No person can withhold our good from us – it is us that holds back our energy.

Imagination is a powerful tool to use for receiving unexpected income or any desire. What we can imagine we can bring forth into manifestation. Mind and heart working together, meaning with our thoughts and feelings we manifest. Image in our mental mind and add the feeling of having it. We are experiencing through our imagination what it is like to have what we are desiring. A “having” feeling rather than a “wanting” feeling. As Jesus said, to pray as though you have already received. Then our prayers are filled with gratitude, and we speak as though we have already received.

The following is an exercise I learned many years ago in a New Thought church service. At the time, I was preparing to move my family out-of-state to a new home in order to find work. The results were: An acquaintance offered to drive the 24' ft. moving van for me; then a past friend showed up paying me back for a loan I had given; I was employed within 3 days. I count this as unexpected income.

We shall now close our eyes and stretch our imagination. We visualize our self walking barefoot upon a rich green lawn, feel the coolness of grass under your feet, and the grass between your toes...

You now walk over to a beautiful stretch of sandy beach. You sit, and with a pale and shovel, you scope the bountiful sand into the pale to overflowing...

You see the welcoming calm surf and walk into the warm blue ocean. You are now floating being softly rocked by countless drops of water moving together as one giant body.

Next, we see lots of money falling from the sky all around us. We reach out and grab this money as it floats down towards us. We stuff our pockets, inside our clothing, anywhere we can find a place to stash it. We are like magnet to attracting money. It is even sticking to us.

We affirm "I am surrounded in massive wealth. I am abundantly supplied. I am the activity of prosperity in action."

We now give thanks with a full heart to Divine Creator and Source for all that has been received and for all that is yet to come.” So it is!

I thank you for your participation.
