The thoughts we think and the feelings we feel set in motion both the subconscious mind and the universe. By how we think and feel, we cause the circumstances of our lives, and that includes our financial circumstances. The financial circumstances which come about will always tend to be in line with the thoughts and feelings which give rise to them.
Chapter 7 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power, is called “Think and Feel As If.” The title is fairly self-explanatory. The technique is basically this: always strive to think and feel as if the financial circumstances you want to bring about either are now or will be reality. Here’s the quote with which I open this all-important chapter:
“What you put into your mind in the nature of your thoughts and feelings…is what subsequently materializes for you in your outer world.”
—Harold Sherman, The New TNT, Miraculous Power Within You, 1966
There are a lot of principles and techniques associated with this subject of attracting money using mind power. But boil this subject down to its essence, and you’re left with this concept: Thought and feeling create. All of the other principles and techniques having to do with attracting money with mind power are related in one way or another to the fact that thinking and feeling are creative acts.
Thought provides the blueprint or the outline for what is to be created; feeling provides the life and energy for what is to be created. If you want to get better at creating the overall life you desire, you’ll work at getting better at governing your thoughts and feelings. If you want to get better at creating the financial life you desire, you’ll work at getting better at governing your money-related thoughts and feelings.
Again, here’s the “think and feel as if” technique: always strive to think and feel as if the financial circumstances you want to bring about either are now or will be reality. It’s a crucial technique for what we are trying to accomplish and, if you think about it, the other mind-power techniques I teach all in some way directly affect your money-related thoughts and feelings. It’s all about the thoughts and feelings, and the causative or subsequent images which come into being. Images can give rise to thoughts and feelings; thoughts and feelings can give rise to images.
Remember, the language of your subconscious mind is images. You want the images you purposely or inadvertently create to be of things and conditions you’d like to see come about in your life. As you now know, these images will be determined by the content and nature of your thoughts and feelings.
How will you know if you are on track? Among the ways are that you’ll feel good about your financial conditions and about your financial prospects. You’ll be optimistic, expectant, and looking forward. You’ll have a natural sense of financial well-being, regardless of the actual present state of your finances.
You should think and feel as if regarding anything at all having to do with your money matters such as your job, your bank account, your debt and so on. Think and feel as if these things are now or will be the way you’d choose them to be. This is a large part of the process by which you will transform your desired financial outcomes into your actual financial conditions.
So, let’s say you have $1,000 in the bank right now. Odds are you think and feel about that as if you have $1,000 in the bank. Not only do you think and feel that way because that is what is true, but that is what is true because you think and feel that way. What if you had $10,000 in the bank? How would you think and feel then? What if you had $100,000 in the bank? How would you think and feel then? How would you think and feel if you had $1,000,000 in the bank?
Don’t think and feel as if you have the bank balance (or net worth or income level) that you have—think and feel as if you have the bank balance you’d like to have. (And by the way, if you have set any money goals you’ll know very clearly what you want.) Make the figure low enough that you can conceive of it as being possible for you to achieve, but high enough so that it will get you excited about achieving it.
It’s not about what you have or about the way things are. It’s about what you’d like to have and the way you’d like things to be. Think and feel as if—the technique works magic and it can transform your financial life and secure your financial future. It’s all about the thoughts and feelings. That’s where all the power springs from. Here’s another quote I use in the book:
“When we think, we create. When we feel, we create.”
—Dr. Donald Curtis, Science of Mind in Daily Living, 1975
And what a succinct and powerful quote that is. You can wield so much more power over your life and your financial circumstances than you are now wielding. Your power is mind power. You exert and direct your mind power by how you think and feel. Think and feel as if your finances are now or will be what you’d choose them to be, and you will cause them to be so.
Will you be able to think and feel as if regarding money all of the time? Likely not. But that’s not the point. The point is to bring yourself to think and feel as if your financial circumstances are or will be what you’d choose them to be more than you think and feel as if your financial circumstances are or will be other than what you’d choose them to be. If you do that, you will have all of the money you want and need.
