Access Consciousness® is often described as a set of tools and processes that can change anything in your life that isn’t working. In the previous article, some ways that the Access Consciousness™ “Ten Commandments” can be used to change your money situation were discussed.
In case you’ve forgotten, here’s the full list of all Ten Commandments. This article is the third in a series that will explain more fully how every single one of them can apply to your financial life. This article focuses on the fifth commandment: no form, no structure, no significance.
1. Would an infinite being really choose this?
2. Everything is just an interesting point of view.
3. Live in 10-second increments.
4. Live as the question, not as the answer.
5. No form, no structure, no significance.
6. No judgment, no discrimination, no discernment
7. No drugs of any kind
8. No competition.
9. Do not listen to, tell, or buy the story
How does the commandment “no form, no structure, no significance” apply to money? When we refer to something being significant in Access Consciousness™ classes, we describe it as having the point of view that it is greater than we are. Money is what many people make more significant than anything. The official name of our political system is based on it—Capitalism.
In some ways, only if we have no point of view about money at all are we truly not making it significant. (These commandments do tend to weave together, like different facets of the same diamond, or many roads to heaven as new age spiritual types can be fond of saying.)
The opposite of making anything significant is the acknowledgement, as Access Consciousness™ founder Gary Douglas says, that “nothing is greater than you and the consciousness that you are.
“You created everything that’s showing up in your life,” Douglas points out. The good news is that since you created it, you can uncreate it and create something different.” With that being true, then how can anything, even that elusive beast called money, be greater or more powerful or more creative or more anything than you are?
But truly living out of form, structure, and significance goes much further than that. If you have the point of view that your only income comes from your job, your paycheck, or your business, you are creating a huge limitation by imposing a form, structure and significance from who, what, and where you are willing to receive money. Is that really in your best interest?
It’s such a common assumption that the only money we have or will ever receive comes from our job, from the inheritance when our parents die, or winning the lottery. Can you see what a limitation that creates? Money can come from all kinds of places we might never expect.
Some of the ways people involved in Access Consciousness™ have received money include receiving inheritance from housemates of 20 years ago, getting completely unsolicited property tax refunds from the county where they lived, getting meeting rooms at classier hotels than they would have dared to book paid for by a second hotel which wished to break its contract, as well as all kinds of comps and travel upgrades which tend to show up when they do, just for the asking and even without asking.
What if money were more like you than you ever thought? Do you like to be told what to do and what you must look like and where you must go? Or do you prefer to be more flowing and freeform and spontaneous, oozing into every possibility and opening until you can find the ones that are the most fun? If you removed the form and structure that you’ve been forcing onto money by your points of view, could money have more fun coming into your life?
What if instead of supposing money were anything you thought it was, you were to ask it questions about how it would like to show up in your life? What if you asked it questions like, “How much fun can we have with you today?” or “What other creative ways can you come up with to find me today and in the future?” Another great question that also works well, and works even better when you free money from the form and structure you force onto it is, “What can I add to my life that would create lots of money today and in the future?”
Form, structure, and significance is a function of our mind. The only function of our mind is to define the limitations of what we already know. How well have you been using your mind to define your limitations about money? A great way to fry your limiting mind on the subject of money is to set as your target to have both more money than you can spend and never enough money. That’s a concept you cannot wrap your logical mind around, have you noticed? The advantage of frying your limiting mind is that it forces your mind to stop creating the form, structure and significance that’s creating your current challenges with money. If you could solve your current money problems with your mind, wouldn’t you have solved them long ago?
It’s easy to see why you might like to have more money than you can spend. But why aim for having never enough? It’s simple—as soon as you decide you have enough money or more than enough money or more money than you can spend, you stop receiving and you stop creating the energy that’s required to generate even more money. You actually impose a form on your money flows with the concept of having enough of it. How crazy is that?
So how about it? Would you be willing to consider being out of form structure and significance with regard to money, right now? What would it take? If what you’ve been trying with your logical mind hasn’t worked, do you have anything to lose?
