How do you change an internal belief like poverty?
You know, if a person is living in poverty and they have a total debt
and they can't even pay their bills that month and stuff like that.
EQ: First off, a belief in poverty is a belief in the fact that there is not enough for everyone and that thee do not deserve an equal share. Is this not so?
EQ: So you have two things you are dealing with. The belief in lack - which all you have to do is look at all the abundance on this planet and all the people who have it, many who thee will probably ascertain did not deserve it. Is this not so?
EQ: So that should dissuade thee from the whole belief that there is lack here, right?
Except when that person's thinking personally and they're looking at their heavy debt.
EQ: This is the difference: That is a belief in non-deservability, dost thou understand? So if there isn't lack, thee have ascertained that lack is an illusion. Then thee have to look at then why are thee choosing to live difficultly. Dost thou understand?
EQ: This is a lack of self image. A lack of belief that thee deserve to be Bill Gates.
Yes, but I have a question. You said to disprove your belief.
So I don't know how a person would disprove that if it's a belief in . . .
EQ: We said there are certain things that are much more difficult and will take the entire lifetime. The first step that we would suggest would be to begin to give thyself gifts. Whether these are gifts of material things is irrelevant. Give thyself a gift. Perhaps that gift is a whole day that is yours, that no one else can take away from thee. It doesn't matter if you are called into work, it doesn't matter if your mother wants thee or your children are needing thee, what matters is this is thy day and thee deserve it because thee are alive and a good person. Then thee want to begin to look at thy value. It is an exercise of beginning to view thyself from the eyes of the people that love thee. Dost thou understand this concept?
EQ: Truly stepping out and saying, "Why does this person love me? What is lovable about me?" Ask them! And begin to accept it. It will be hard work and as time goes on and thee begin to accept more and more gifts either from thyself or from others, then the flow stops being dammed and it begins to come. Dost thou understand?
EQ: Thee also need to examine, and this is particularly true for the females amongst thee, how many of thee want to live just barely so that they can get rescued by some man? Truly! Many women do this and it is subconscious, they do not know they are doing this, but subconsciously they are wanting love and they do not feel they deserve it but they were told when they were very, very young that all they had to do was be walled up in a castle, or be pricked and fall asleep for 200 years, or sleeping and their prince charming will come in and rescue them and make their life work. So many little girls grow up to be women who live their life on the edge hoping that they will be rescued. So this is another thing to think about.
Could it also be that that person chose to have that life?
EQ: The soul?
I'm sorry, yes.
EQ: The soul may choose to have that experience but the soul always wants thee to remedy it. Dost thou understand? The soul may want thee to have the experience of poverty, that doesn't mean that thee have to be there forever.
So a related question then, can any of us be too wealthy?
EQ: We would say that "too wealthy" would be that person whether they have ten dollars or ten gazillion . . . Is that a word? We like it.
EQ: . . . ten gazillion dollars, too wealthy is when thee horde.
So if I were to make, or if any of us were to make say, ten times what we currently make, that wouldn't necessarily be too much as long as the reciprocity and giving and taking . . .
EQ: As long as thee understand that thee own nothing. Thee do not own thy money, thee do not own this physical body, thee do not own thy homes, thee do not own thy children, thy spouses, thee own nothing. So share it! That which thee give out comes back many fold if thee believe this thing. So if thee feel abundantly wealthy and thee give from that space? Guess what comes back! If thee feel abundantly lacking then thee will not give and thee are hording and it doesn't come. Dost thou understand?
EQ: We would love it if everyone were Bill Gates. We would! We think this is wondrous. Then, wouldn't thy planet be a much better place? If everyone had much, much, much more than they could ever have need for? Everyone!
I don't know . . .
EQ: Dost thou think there would be murder? Dost thou think there would be robbery?
There would still be competition somewhere though.
EQ: There might be competition because of boredom.
Yes. We create our own competition just to keep our minds going.
EQ: But we believe there would be a lot less violence.
Because you felt more secure.
EQ: Because everybody has everything.
EQ: Thee don't have to fight for somebody's land to have more. Everybody has it all.
And this would shift us away from a collective fear consciousness. At least partially.
This would open up our creativity too.
EQ: Absolutely. For what we have discovered is when entities get themselves out of themselves, they connect with the All and once they are connected with the All, they are connected with infinite creativity. Very good.
So abundance that would be shared with all would multiply the creativity and satisfy and make every one humble?
This is part of a love and link connection thing that I started and I mentioned at Mission Beach and this has helped me so much, what you just said, so all my questions are answered.
EQ: Super! This is important.
