So much of the mind-power work you will do to attract money has to do with what is going on inside of you, namely your thoughts, feelings and images. But what is going on outside of you is also an important consideration concerning your money-attracting efforts.
“Environment” is the title of chapter 12 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power. Here’s a quote I use in that chapter:
“There are two classes of folks in this world; those who will be trained by environment, and those who train environment.”
—Harriet Luella McCollum, What Makes a Master?, 1932
Your environment is, basically, all you see and hear on a regular basis. Consider your home, workplace and the other places you regularly spend time in. Think about the types of activities you normally engage in. What kind of messages are you receiving from these places and activities?
Now, think about the people you see and associate with. You spend time with family, friends and coworkers. You come into contact with certain classes of strangers depending on where you spend your time. What messages are reaching your conscious and subconscious minds as a result of your interaction with and proximity to these people? What types of thoughts do these people express and what do their appearance and actions suggest or imply in regards to what reality is?
People are always expressing views and sharing information with you. They do this in person and by phone. They do it through letters and emails. And of course there are books, magazines and newspapers. There are TV, radio and the internet. People even share thoughts and feelings with you mentally, whether or not you or they are aware of it.
If you really think about it, you’ll likely realize that a lot of the effect people have on you is negative in general, and no less so when it comes to the subject of money and finances.
Your environment reflects your thinking. You create, attract and are drawn to the kinds of environments in line with your thoughts and feelings. Yes, your environment reflects your thinking. But, your environment also affects your thinking. Your conscious and subconscious thoughts will always tend to fall in line with the messages you get from all you see and here.
If you are a student and practitioner of mind power, you likely have more conscious control over what you let in and accept than the average person who has little to no control. Still, no matter how mentally strong you think you are, your environment will affect you to some degree. If you want to attract more money into your life, then you’ll want to make sure you keep yourself mostly in environments conducive to the fulfillment of that desire.
Always remember, it works both ways. Your environment affects your thoughts and feelings and your thoughts and feelings affect your environment.
Contemplate your inner environment. See how it has helped create your outer environment. Begin to see how you can improve your inner environment so that you may as a result cause your outer environment to improve. Contemplate your outer environment. Begin to see how you can improve your outer environment so that you may cause your inner environment to improve as well. Work with your mind, and work with your hands.
Is your present outer environment a world you are comfortable in? Is it a world you want to stay in? And the big question for our specific purposes: Is your present outer environment conducive to creating and maintaining a money mindset which will cause you to attract, and not repel, money?
You can improve your money mindset by improving your physical environment. You can also improve your money mindset by improving your thoughts and feelings. To really step up the power you can wield for attracting money, you will want to work on improving your money mindset from both the inner and the outer.
So that you may understand what actions to take regarding your thoughts and feelings, study your thoughts and feelings. Know what they are and ponder their effects on your ability to attract money and on your environment. So that you may understand what actions to take regarding your physical environment itself, study it and ponder its effects on your ability to attract money and on your thoughts and feelings.
For most people it will be easier, at least in the beginning, to improve their environments by working at the task from the outside. But for everyone, newcomers and experienced mind-power practitioners alike, improving the physical environment directly just makes a whole lot of good sense.
Here’s another quote I use in my chapter on environment:
“The great nature makes its own environment…”
—Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Heart of the New Thought, 1902
Decide what kinds of changes should be made in your environment. Begin to make those changes. Do you want to tune up your thinking and thus your money mindset? Then begin to tune up your surroundings. Get out the broom and the duster. Use a screwdriver, a drill or a hammer. Or get some help if you need it. Begin to be more discriminating in what you will and will not accept and tolerate in your personal environment.
Begin to show better judgment regarding where you go and what you do with your time and who you do it with. Each day is another day to make the general conditions of your life more supportive of your financial goals and dreams. Each day there is the danger that the general conditions of your life will thwart your attempts to realize your financial goals and dreams.
Tend to those environments you have some control over, and limit your exposure to negative environments which you cannot significantly control or change. Begin to gravitate toward environments more conducive to your money-attracting efforts and aspirations. Environment is yet another piece of the money-attracting puzzle, and a more important one than most people ever suspect.
