If you watch the part 3 video by Burt Goldman on Quantum Jumping, Burt mentions something in passing about abundant mind patterns versus impoverished mind patterns. I would like to go in depth with that concept because I believe I have some personal experience with it.
You ever notice how kids are so curious about things? How they seem to make a big deal out of something that’s become common place and inconspicuous with you like a gate latch or a box or a simple rock? That’s a mind pattern of abundance there. We’re all born with that.
Why is that curiousity an abundant mind pattern? That child is wondering how it works. That child is wondering how it exists. That child is wondering about his relationship to that object; the touch, the smell, the color, the mechanics, the function, etc.
The entire world is already stimulating to an impressionable, young mind. An impressionable, young mind is still absorbing information from the environment. When providing an artificial stimulation like a sugary snack or a video game, this becomes addictive to a young mind. (Please see Marketing to Limbic for more on this subject.)
Let’s say we only provide environments of natural stimulation for a child. As long as we provide no artificial stimulation to that child, that child remains curious about his world. That child is also remains open to positive values.
Remember, we’re talking about a child. As long we teach that child positive values through modeling, lecturing, cooperative performance, independent performance, knowledge capture, and role reversal (let the child teach), then we nurture a personality of abundance.
A personality of abundance always maintains a positive outlook on the world; this is a person who recognises his place in the great circuit of life as well as the place of others. This type of person always remains curious and positive and always questions how he can best serve the people around him with his talents.
Unfortunately, the average public school environment consists of unruly peers, inflexible teaching methods, and (God Forbid) drugs. The average home life consists of over stimulation of the senses by sugary snacks, video games, F-bomb music, and (God Forbid) more drugs.
Kids easily become bored when their senses are overstimulated by these attributes of mainstream society. In many cases, their senses are deadened by school mandated neuroleptics and psychotropics and their immune systems compromised by fluoridated water, cellphones, and vaccine shots. These sources are conducive to mind patterns of poverty.
Mainstream society is notorious for turning out mind patterns of poverty; this is why we have so many drug addicts, low test scores, high school drop outs, and teen pregnancies. This is what happens when we allow dark age, life-negative hypocrites to run our lives and the lives of our children. I’ll give this rant a rest and compare abundant to impoverished mind patterns.
Abundance vs. Poverty
Are you still curious about your computer? I should hope so. You’re using it to read this.
What I notice about impoverished personalities is that they have almost zero curiousity; they have almost zero interest in learning about the world around them. They’ve lost that child-like quality. There are people who have blamed me for being child-like; that’s because I haven’t lost my curiousity.
An impoverished person will use everyday things like running water, a TV, a car, a computer, yet have no curiousity about how these objects work, the materials that went into creating that function it serves, the fabrication of the parts that make it work, the assembly of that object that made it work, or even how it was invented in the first place.
Do you understand? An abundant personality is curious about all of that because he can see all the work that went into that object with his mind’s eye. An abundant personality has an incredible imagination – like a child. That imagination allows an abundant personality to see the great circuit of life with his mind’s eye.
An abundant personality takes up interests, discovers his strengths, and develops a talent because he knows how that talent will serve others in the great circuit of life. In opposition, an impoverished personality doesn’t really care about himself; he’s not curious about himself or the world around him, so he doesn’t care about the great circuit of life.
The Circuit of Life
Do you understand what I mean when I say the “great circuit of life?” No? Then how can I help you? Let me teach you.
I’ve explained everything so far in the big picture sense. Allow me to go into detail with you. You see that keyboard in front of you? A lot of work went into that. Sure it was probably part of a huge assembly line in China, but a lot of work went into it.
There are probably machines pressing hot plastic molds to create a keyboard case. This is only one factory. There different factories for fabricating the keys and the PC board and other inner components. Then there’s a whole other factory for assembly. There’s probably quality control people for each part, then quality assurance teams to make sure your keyboard works.
Then there’s another factory that does the retail packaging which sent your keyboard to a distributor, who sent your keyboard to a retailer where you finally purchased it.
That was the great circuit of life that led to your keyboard. Of course, your keyboard is a townhouse compared to the Empire State Building which is your PC.
An impoverished personality has no interest whatsoever in how something so common place as a keyboard fits into the great circuit of life.
An abundant personality can see with his mind’s eye the work went into that keyboard; with his mind’s eye, an abundant personality can see the great circuit of life that goes into any object. Then if he doesn’t know, he finds out.
I’m not saying that abundant mind patterns are discursively obsessive, that they want to know the details about every little thing. An abundant mind pattern has a great imagination; he is able to interpolate and extract an experience in his mind’s eye from previous knowledge and experience.
An abundant personality recognises cause and effect, then creates synthesis in his mind’s eye, which then spills out, into the real world through his own works.
An impoverished personality has no synthesis in his mind’s eye. He has no curiousity about the world around him. He prefers preconceived notions, platitudes, and hyperbole to make up his reality- because it’s easy. That’s how we have so much poverty – it’s easy.
Here is an article that exemplifies the concept of abundant versus impoverished mind patterns:
The placebo effect in healing should not be dismissed lightly, argues Stephen Wright. More and more studies are illuminating the connection between mind, body and spirit…
…Eleven healers were asked to practise their craft while a patient was underthe scanner in a different room.
In nine cases, when the healer got to work, the patient’s brain literally lit up the scanner. It is the first demonstrable evidence I have seen of a change in the body when a healer is at work in a different room from that of the patient. The effect of patients’belief that they are being helped, or whether some unknown energy is being ‘sent’by the healers, is discussed in Achterberg’s study, now in press.
However, if the placebo effect works, there can also be a downside: what Hamer(2004) calls the ‘nocebo’ effect. His survey of negative expectations of health, for example among people who are depressed or feel God has abandoned them, raises some alarming concerns. Many studies on religiosity suggest positive benefits for health. But when we believe that we are not loved by God, or even worse that God has turned against us, or if we are atheist, we feel hopeless, unloved or that there is no future for us, we are more likely to get sick or die.
Mind, body and spirit are part of a whole, weaving together the complex pattern we call health. What more studies are showing is that the pattern can be unwoven as well, not just by the attacks of disease, but also by our state of consciousness…
That’s one more attribute to add to the mix: Positive versus Negative expectations. Guess who has the positive expectations? To an abundant mind pattern, just about anything positive serves as a placebo. Very few negative things can bring down an abundant mind pattern.
On the other hand, an impoverished mind pattern tends to turn just about everything into a negative, no matter how positive. Just about everything serves a personality of poverty as a nocebo. Have you every met these people who are pretty much negative about everything? I bet you have. That’s an impoverished mind pattern.
What do we do with impoverished mind patterns? Good question. My answer: Find a way to serve them. No. Not what they want. Serve them what they need. Here are a few examples:
Automatic Enlightenment. That’s what you’ll find when working with the Keys To Power system. Give up the worries, the stress, and the frustration of never getting quite what you want. Turn it all around today
Persuasion Secrets Revealed At PowerKeys Publishing – Discover the secrets of persuading others to your way of thinking. Make anyone do anything once you learn the secret keys behind the science of persuasion.
Sharing Prosperity. That’s the key.
Those of you with the personality of abundance understand the importance of sharing: Because we’re all part of the great circuit of life, therefore, you know that your sharing of knowledge, encouragement, and love comes back to you manifold.
On the other hand, a personality of poverty only understand the importance of having. Such a person doesn’t care about the great circuit of life. This person only cares about self indulgence in personal belongings, status symbols to show off to his peers, and cares only about the the next person can do for him.
In this sense, an impoverished personality will always serve as a constant drain on an abundant personality. An impoverished personality is always looking for handouts and latching onto the abundant personality. A lot of relationships are based on the impoverished personality taking advantage of the abundant personality; that’s why a lot of relationships don’t last. Holy Scripture of eons past know these relationships too well:
The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. [Psalm 37:21]
“Why?” You might ask then, “if I am righteous, would I want to share more knowledge, more compassion, more love, more prosperity with a wicked person who will always serve as a constant drain upon me?”
Actually, I’m only asking you to share your knowledge and your compassion. More than anything, I’m asking you to use your talents. There’s an old saying that if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for life. I’m asking you to help me teach impoverished people how to fish. If you’re really into famous quotes, here are a few more on wealth from regular people:
“Thoughts and ideas are the source of all wealth, success, material gain, all great discoveries, inventions and achievement.” – Mark Victor Hansen
“Real wealth equals ideas plus energy.” – Buckminster Fuller
“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice. No paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.” – John Burroughs
“If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple: Know what you are doing, love what you are doing, and believe in what you are doing.” – Will Rogers
These are all from people who chose to remain abundant. Remember, we were all born with personalities of abundance. Our Creator made us that way. Let me give you this reassurance from Holy Scripture:
But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. [Psalms 37:11]
Some people compare meekness to weakness, but if you read all of Psalms chapter 37, you will understand that we are all born into and are part of a greater design. To be meek is to be humble. We all start out humble. We start by with humility, but we also have cravings. Our cravings make us curious about the world around us.
Our curiousity makes us wonder how this world came to be and how we fit into this world. That’s why we’re all born into a personality of abundance: We’re all born into being humble, craving, curiosity seekers. This is how all of nature works. This is how nature sustains itself. Nature IS abundant. We are all part of that nature.
Unfortunately, the culture of mammon comes along and distorts this understanding, then children must cope the best way they know how. Then they end up with personalities of poverty.
You might ask, “What more can I do for these impoverished personalities who choose to remain ignorant?” Noone likes to be ignorant. The problem with impoverished people is that they have swollen egos and this makes them hard headed and cold hearted. A person who was once humble is humble no longer when he has a swollen ego. One of the big problems is Mainstream academia actually teach students to have swollen egos.
There are several ways to deal with swollen egos.
Way of the MindGate, encounters of the 3rd kind
This is when we are actually speaking with a mind pattern of poverty. Remember, these type of people have swollen egos, so they believe they’re expert at something even if they’ve actually had little experience. When you bring up their subject of “expertise” in a discussion, you must let them think they know more about the subject than you do.
That’s right. You’re going to have to swallow some pride. You’re an abundant person anyway, so it’s easy for you to be humble. Playing to this person’s ego can often times make them want to do more for you than upsetting their self image of superiority.
You might ask be asking me, “How am I supposed to teach the plebian anything if he thinks his knowledge is superior to mine?” You have to throw them a curve ball. If you have a copy of something like Money Making Secrets of Mind Power Masters, then share a copy with them. Then ask them what they think about it.
Deep down, that poverty personality knows that he doesn’t know jack. But what you have to do is stroke the ego and say something like, “I happened to find this report with this really silly title. I glanced through it, but I’m having trouble understanding it. Could you please have a look through it and explain to me how it works?”
Are you getting how to work that ego yet? You see, you’ve established their superiority to you, therefore stroked his ego through your admission of, “I don’t get it, but you probably can.”
Please remember that you have to lead this person, therefore, you should make it a leading question that lands on a particular piece of knowledge that you would like your prospect to learn. So, a better question would be, “…Could you please have a look at that chapter on abundance and explain to me how it works?”
Yes, I know this is being underhanded. So what? The end justifies the means. You’re not holding a gun to someone’s head. You’re using their ego to your advantage. By leading your prospect with questions, then giving them credit for the ideas stated, you boost their ego and transfer ownership of the idea to them.
This can help your position in many ways, especially if that poverty personality is in a leadership position. (Examples taken from “Blonde’s Secret Weapon” and “Leading Questions” from Keys To Power Persuasion)
Ordinarily, I would suggest mirroring and matching as I have discussed in other parts of this blog, but I know, from personal experience, that having too much empathy with an impoverished personality can actually rub off and make you feel the same way. That’s something that you probably don’t want because you want to remain righteous. Poverty can be infectious.
Personality assumption is even worse unless you’re at a distance which is what we discuss in the next section.
Way of the MindGate, encounters of the 2nd kind
We use these methods when we know where a person is and we know that person relatively well. The number one methods of influence for encounters of the 2nd kind are Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT.
EFT is fascinating in that it can be used for remote influencing. This is sometimes called intentional or surrogate tapping and is the fascinating process of mentally doing EFT for another’s benefit while benefitting you as well. This is also called remote EFT. There are practitioners out there who actually do remote EFT over the phone to help their clients – and it really works.
There is a report on how this works called How to do Intentional (or Surrogate) EFT–a 4 Part Series. I discuss this fascinating subject further at this blog and my site at HealingMindN. For now, you can just grab the free EFT Tutorial + Manual and the above report, also yours for the taking, so you can see how this is done.
Basically, what it involves is that you assume the person’s identity in question, through your gifted imagination, of course. Then you tap for them. You imagine their feelings, their surroundings, their senses, the way they perceive the world and talk out their problems for them as you tap on those shotgun acupuncture points as indicated in the EFT Tutorial.
This method is obviously easy when you are familiar with the person and their environment.
What if you don’t know the person and you don’t really know their environment, but this person is causing you and your friend’s a lot of heartache? This means you’re going to have to use the most powerful method available for remote influencing.
Way of the MindGate, encounters of the 1st kind
When you have a general idea of where the troublemaker might be, but you don’t really know this person, you need the most esoteric solution for remote influencing. This is most likely a politician or some corporate CEO.
The first thing you have to learn is remote viewing. An interesting principle that has been proven is that you can remotely influence the same person who you are remote viewing. This principle was discovered by the western european intelligence agencies for whom Gerald O’Donnell was working.
Gerald O’Donnell formed the Academy of Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing wherein he teaches these intelligence methods to you. EFT also taps into the same “matrix” of intelligence, but Gerald O’Donnell’s course takes you into these amazing mental discipline exercises wherein your will becomes unbreakable and your personality of abundance is extended into the world around you. Gerald is a very spiritual person. You will most likely be a very spiritual person as well after trying a few of his exercises for extending your senses beyond your body. You can download one of his audios as an mp3 from Academy of Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing and try it right now.To be like Jesus Christ? Why Not? You’re an abundant person already. Jesus was an abundant person. Everyone should try to be like Jesus. The Meek shall inherit the earth…Healing Thoughts, HealingMindN
5 (Standard) Ways to Develop an Abundant Mindset:
1. Focus on people, not things: There are five very important principles that must you must do in order for you to live prosperously. The first and most important is your Ability to associate with people. Why? Because people are in the great circuit of life where the money is flowing! Ironically, when you put the values, needs, and wants of the people first, the money will come to you as a natural result of money flow… provided, you also follow the next steps.
2. Develop Insightful Expectations. Develop the ability to see abundance even in the face of “lacking.” The difference lies in your expectations and beliefs. False or misplaced expectations will destroy your success, relationships, – and your chances for true abundance. When you change the way you see something or someone, the person or thing you’re looking at changes. Your place in the great circuit of life is most important when you fulfill the expectations of others. You gain insight when you learn to meet the expectations of others like yourself.
3. Use AFFIRMATIONAL QUESTIONS. Instead of asking yourself, “Why am I so broke?” ask yourself, “What makes me rich? How can I be richer?” These are called empowering AFFIRMATIONAL QUESTIONS – NOT affirmations! For example, I’m sure that you’ve tried using an affirmation like, “I am rich.” And your mind says, “Yeah, right!”
Instead of making a statement that you don’t believe, ask yourself an Affirmation Question like: “Since I choose to be rich, how am I rich?” Asking empowering questions will cause your mind to search for why you are, in fact, so rich.
That’s why changing the question is extremely important to changing your life. The greatest scientists in the world such as Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr went to bed asking themselves important questions with the result of having the answer they needed the following morning. The difference is the greatest scientists like the greatest artists have passion about their work.
You are also wealthy in your passion. You are passionate about your work. When you wake up to something you love to do, you wake up to passion. Since others in the great circuit of life probably share your passion, it’s a matter of asking yourself, “How do I get the wealth to maintain (my passion) for myself and others like me?”
4. Focus on what you HAVE, not on what you don’t have: Millions suffer from the the depressed mind pattern of “lack-of this or not enough of that.” Some people even feed themselves negative affirmations like “I’m poor” or “I’m ugly.”
This comes from focusing on what you lack, which produces… more feelings of lack. This isn’t your fault. This is how you were raised. You were OK when you were born. The problem at the moment is that most people have trouble letting go of negativity.
The following exercise might help: Every morning, begin your day by writing five things for which you’re grateful and appreciative. Focus on what you HAVE to build feelings of confidence and self-worth. When you focus on being grateful for what you have, more will be given. This is a law of attraction concept.
If you’re a spiritually oriented person, so much the better. We accomplish more as a spiritually oriented people as scientifically proved on this paper on Collective DNA Consciousness. If you’re Christian, you can look up a number of scriptures in the Holy Bible including Galatians chap. 6, verses 7 – 8, which provides the old adage that “you reap what you sow.”
Therefore, focus more on the effort you invest into the great circuit of life and your return on investment. Rich people, in general, stay rich because they’re more focused on the flow of their work within the great circuit of life. An abundant personality always thinks in terms of “flow” like the flow of teaching and learning between instructors and students or the flow of a software program as it get’s distributed around the world.
When you have a work of passion that clearly identifies you as the source and you “sow” it into the great circuit of life where there is passion for your work, then you “reap” the benefits of your passion – which is what you have RIGHT NOW.
5. Find your Purpose: This is the most important step. Most people don’t know why they’re here on this planet. That’s because the mainstream academic system failed us. In a place where we are supposed to be nurturing our passions, we get jaded by “school spirit,” lack of acceptance by certain peers, and failure to meet teachers’ expectations. Mainstream academia is more interested in how kids will fit into present day society than nurturing their passions; this is a wholesale paradigm of failure.
This falsely induced feelings of failure lead to fear, depression, and anxiety to the depths of despair. It’s only natural that these feelings get amplified when situations look tough. Focusing on what’s wrong is really a bad habit that should be replaced by focusing on what is right. When you Find Your Purpose, you’ll realize that nothing compares to knowing you are doing your best at your personal passion.
Naturally, I’m hoping that you’re a life positive person, therefore, you passion is life positive. Some people would say that they have no passion. I’m telling you that you are reading this exactly because you do have love in your heart, therefore, you do have passion, for yourself as well as the great circuit of life.
An Introverted Virtuoso
Here’s a small story about one person who was emailing me on youtube. I get a lot of emails on youtube, but this one stood out for me. This was a man, I believe in his late 20’s who told me that he was so shy and introverted that he would lock himself in his room for hours at a time and that he had no social life. He said he had been doing this for the past eight years.
I asked him what he was doing with all his time. He said he was learning to play the guitar. I replied to him, “OMG! I wish I had that kind of discipline to lock myself up in my room for hours at a time to learn to play the guitar. You must be a virtuoso! There are recording studios who would love to get their hands on someone like you.”
After a few more exchanges, he got his confidence and did a video. Sure enough, he had a small studio going in his bedroom where he was playing classical guitar. He was a self made classical musician. A short time later, he told me he found a new job as a studio musician in another state and that he was moving.
Do you understand what happened? It’s simply a matter of waking up to your passion. No matter what you do, if you specialise in a certain art, science, or trade, this is your love. This is your passion. It’s simply a matter of placing faith in your passion and putting your passion into the flow of the great river of life (or great circuit, whatever you prefer) in order for you and others to reap the benefits.
It’s that simple. Now, if you still have trouble identifying your passion, I can help. All you need is inspiration. Please visit the post entitled, Your Personalized Living Mandala where I believe I can help you through your own inspirational supernatural “fiction.”
