What Does Spirituality Have to Do with Wealth
Author: Greg Tharpe
Realize that your financial results or wealth are manifested by your mindset and you have subconsciously intentionally or unintentionally chosen to be either very prosperous or not prosperous at all. If you abide by the spiritual laws of wealth or your mind is set on prosperity, it will foster in the wisdom, ideas and actions that cause wealth or prosperity in your life. However, if you have violated the spiritual laws of prosperity and wealth, it has caused you lack of, limited or mediocre income.
“But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.” [Deuteronomy 8:18 NIV]
You are either a conscious creator of wealth or a worker for money. In spirit and truth, you are a natural born creator of wealth, born with unique talents and gifts to serve the world for unlimited profit in your calling or niche. However, you may have chosen to be a worker because you do not have the faith or you were not knowledgeable enough to package, market and serve your gift to the world.
Even though we see money as paper and coins, money is really energy or a mindset. It is the results of ideas manifested by the individual that understands the workings of the mind or the universe in that respect. Another term for money often used is currency which comes from the root word current which is a flow of electric charge. When you understand money at the spiritual root, it opens you up to fully receive wealth. When you only understand it in its material form, it puts resistance or blockage in your cash flow and limits wealth.
In spiritual truth, we all are connected to the wealth power source or God. Therefore, we all have our master plan for prosperity, embedded in our soul waiting to be unleashed. Within this spiritual connection is the wisdom, ideas and creativity for investing or the products, services and marketing that cause unlimited cash flow and wealth. Therefore, wealth and abundance is a part of who we are at the spiritual core.
Jesus said, “I came so that you may have life more abundantly.” In the context of wealth, this means that abundance is God’s will for you. You are rich in spirit; therefore, when you learn to unleash it – it will bring you all of the material riches that are in God’s will for you. Many people do not believe that there is a connection with God, self and wealth; these are the people that lack the true understanding of God and perhaps lean on their worldly or religious beliefs.
We live in a world where money is a necessary commodity, has its role and is here to serve a purpose to grow our wealth. Money is needed for food, clothing, shelter, personal items, education, transportation, medical needs and other products and services; without it, life will be a struggle in this day and age. Therefore, it is imperative to possess the knowledge of wealth or the skills to work for money. Either you can learn how to work for money or you can learn how to unleash the wealth within you, so it can work for you to produce more income.
Education of the spiritual truth about the connection of God, mind, soul, spirit and wealth is the key to financial freedom and prosperity. Everyone has access to the universal storehouse of abundance and wealth, but everyone does not possess the key or understanding of how to turn it into financial abundance.
When you understand and apply the laws of mind for creating wealth, you will unleash the currency or wisdom from the Source and wealth will be attracted, created and manifested in your life in abundance.
