The Science of Getting Rich (Part 8) – Receiving Riches

In my series of videos on The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D. Wattles’ pioneering work on using the power of your mind, I’ve covered his steps to creating your success.    Now, in Part 8, it comes together as we learn about receiving riches.

Thinking Stuff

Wallace says there is a thinking stuff from which all things are made. 

In its original state, it permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.  A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.  Wallace says we can form things in our thoughts. 

Then, by impressing our thought upon what he calls the formless substance, we can cause the thing we think about to be created. 

Passing From Competitive to Creative Mind

In order to create, we must pass from the competitive to the creative mind.  Otherwise,Science of Getting Rich (Part 8) Receiving Riches we cannot be in harmony with the formless intelligence which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.

We may come into full harmony with the formless substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon us.  Gratitude unifies the mind of man with the intelligence of substance, so that man’s thoughts are received by the formless.  We can remain upon the creative plane only by uniting ourselves with the formless intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.

We must form a clear and definite mental image of the things we wish to have, to do, or to become; and we must hold this mental image in our thought, while being deeply grateful to the supreme that all his desires are granted to him. 

Receiving Riches

The man who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating his vision. Too much stress is laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with the unwavering faith and devout gratitude.  This is the process by which the impression is given to the formless substance and the creative forces set in motion.

All that is included in this mental image will surely be brought to the person who follows the instructions given and whose faith does not waver.

In order to receive,you must be active.  You must keep in mind the purpose to get rich through the realization of your mental image.  Every day you must do all that can be done that day.  Take care to do each act in a successful manner.  You must give to every person a use value in excess of the cash value you receive so that each transaction makes for more life to all that you touch.

The men and women who practice these instructions will certainly get rich; and the riches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith and the depth of their gratitude.  This concludes Wallace’s brilliant book.

I sincerely thank you for watching these videos.  I believed that Wallace’s wisdom when applied can benefit all of us.  Knowing that you have the power to create your future is a key to a successful and prosperous life.  Please take this information to heart and use it.

The Science of Getting Rich (Part 6) – Further Use of the Will

by Carole Dean

 

Wallace D. Waddle’s incredible book, The Science of Getting Rich, details how you can manifest success.   Written in the early 20th century, Wallace was a pioneer in realizing and writing about the power of your mind. 

In Part 6 of my video series on The Science of Getting Rich, I analyze his belief on the further use of your will in attaining that success.  

Wallace says that you cannot retain a true and clear vision of wealth if you are constantly turning your attention to opposing pictures. 

Don’t Focus on Past Troubles

Do not tell of your past troubles of a financial nature, if you have had them, do not think of them at all.   Do not tell of the poverty of your parents or hardships of your early life.  This will check the movement of things in your direction.

Put poverty and all things that pertain to poverty completely behind you.  By following Wallace’s theory of the universe as being correct, you are resting all your hopes of happiness on its being correct.  Your faith will bring this to completion.

No matter how horrible things appear in other countries, do not spend your time thinking about them. Please, interest yourself in your future.  Wallace wants you to give your attention wholly to riches.  To become rich, he writes, is the noblest aim you can have in life, for it includes everything else. 

Attaining Physical Health

On the competitive plane, the struggle to get rich is a Godless scramble for power over Science of Getting Rich (Part 4) Thinking in a Certain Wayother men; but when we come into the creative mind, all this is changed.  All that is possible in the new way of greatness and soul unfoldment, of service and lofty endeavor comes by way of getting rich.

If you lack physical health, you will find that the attainment of it… is conditional on your getting rich.

Only those emancipated from financial worry, and who have the means to live a care-free existence and follow good health practices, can have and retain health.

Moral and Spiritual Greatness

Moral and spiritual greatness is possible only to those who are above the competitive battle for existence.  Only those who are becoming rich on the plane of creative thought are free from the degrading influences of competition.

You can aim at nothing so great or noble, I repeat as to become rich; and you must fix your attention upon your mental picture of riches, to the exclusion of all that may tend to dim or obscure the vision.

You must see your life moving forward toward fuller expression and more complete happiness.

Read The Science of Getting Rich each day and commit it to memory.  There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made.   In its original state it permeates, penetrates and fills the interspaces of the universe.  A thought in this substance producer the thing that is imaged by the thought. 

Form and hold your clear mental picture of what you want and hold this relentlessly in your vision.  Wallace says you must live and act in a Certain way and we cover this in part 7.

The Science of Getting Rich (Part 5) – How to Use the Will

by Carole Dean

Wallace D. Waddles, author of The Science of Getting Rich, understood that to harness the power or your mind to manifest your success you needed to know how to use the will.   

In my previous videos, I’ve covered some of the principles he outlines needed to attain that success.   In Part 5, How to Use the Will, I cover the important principle of using your will.

 

 

How to Use the Will

To set about getting rich in a scientific way, you do not try to apply your will power to anything outside of yourself. 

Wallace says it’s wrong to apply your will to other people to get them to do what you wish.   Do not to use your will power upon another person…….. even for his own good.  The Science of Getting Rich does not require you to apply power or force to any other person.

You do not need to apply your will to things, in order to compel things to come to you.  The Substance, Wallace explains, is friendly to you and is more anxious to give you what you want…. than you are to get it!  

To get rich, you need only to use your will power upon yourself.  When you know what to think and do, then you must use your will to compel yourself to think and do the right things.  That is the legitimate use of the will in getting what you want. 

Creating a Mental Image

To use it in holding yourself to the right course.  Use your will to keep yourself thinking Science of Getting Rich (Part 5) How to Use the Willand acting in the Certain Way.

Use your mind to form a mental image of what you want and hold that vision with your faith and purpose and use your will to keep you mind working in the Right Way.

The more steady and continuous your faith, the more rapidly you will get rich because you will make only Positive impressions upon Substance.

As this impression spreads all things are set moving toward it’s realization.  Every living thing every inanimate thing, are stirred toward bringing into being that which you want.  All forces begin to be exerted toward bringing into being that which you want.

You can stop all of this by starting a negative impression in the Formless substance.  Doubt or unbelief is as certain to start a movement away from you as faith and purpose are to start one toward you.

Focus Your Will on Desired Outcome

If you want to get rich you must not make a study of poverty.  Things are not brought into being by thinking about their opposites. 

Wallace says, Get rich; that is the best way you can help the poor.  Don’t fill you mind with pictures of poverty…….. use your will to keep your mind and faith fully on your desired outcome.

You can become right by creation, not by competition.  Every man who gets rich by creation opens a way for thousands like him to follow and inspires them to do so.  Use your will power to keep your mind off poverty and keep it fixed with faith and purpose on the vision of what you want.

There is more information on the use of your will to achieve your goals in our part 6 of Wallace D. Waddle’s book The Science of Getting Rich.
