Creating Affluence

Affluence, and wealth of all types, is not something that we need to attract to us—for we already possess it. The challenge that we face is releasing the thoughts and beliefs that block us from recognizing it. As we look deeply within, we discover that our worldview, our definitions of life, are contrary to the effortless realization of wealth.

We often begin our quest for prosperity at the wrong end of this dilemma—we focus on that which we believe is missing—money, things, a comfortable lifestyle, friends and good health. By taking this approach, we are addressing the symptoms that result from our belief systems, when we need to identify the beliefs themselves, and replace them with an awareness of the true nature of reality. Once we align our thoughts with this understanding, we unleash the power within us and wealth follows us wherever we go.

In his book Creating Affluence, Deepak Chopra states that “Affluence, unboundedness, and abundance are our natural state. We just need to restore the memory of what we already know.” Wealth consciousness has been an integral part of New Thought from the beginning—it reflects the relationship between the spiritual and the material realms. All things come into being in the same manner, from the same source. All things are made of the same energy, shaped into different forms by our intent and belief.

Deepak Chopra explains existing metaphysical principles in terms of modern physics and quantum theory, revealing their timeless truth. As we unfold the mechanics of creation, the brilliance of our spiritual ancestors shines ever more brightly.

Through our experiential workshop on Saturday, April 18, and our Sunday lessons on April 19 and 26, we will see the perfection of the universe and our role in it. We will see life, not as a struggle, but as a magical adventure where our needs are met with grace and ease. You are invited to join us in this adventure, and to begin living with the freedom and joy that are your birthright.

With much love,
