She followed up that first request by asking how she can change her mind set.
Then I realised that this came from her hearing to an audio I was playing in my car about the secrets to success and abundance in one’s life.
I didn't think it was hitting home for her. But it appears I was wrong.
You should have heard how unconvincing I was in echoing what I have learned about the secret to success, principles I have been studying for about over two years now.
And honestly speaking, that is what I have been doing with this blog of mines that I continue to update regularly...echoing.
Do I BELIEVE the things that I echo?
Because if I did my enthusiasm in informing others of SUCCESS and ABUNDANCE laws that EVERYONE should know in order to live a life full of PROSPERITY and RICHES, would be at an all time high, at all times, infecting everyone within an ear's reach!
That would be mostly due to having allowed these scientifically proven wealth & success principles to energize and renew me from the inside out, making me shine with my own Light and bring hope into people lives with a message that seems to say "all it not lost."
"We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light." - Earl Nightingale
Do I BELIEVE the things that I echo?
I have to because the alternative of not heeding to the maxim “We Become What We Think About” is like letting an enormously powerful earth-moving truck, slang for "ama-caterpillar" in my part of the world, run randomly and wildly over each moment of my life.
It would be like saying I am letting someone else control how my mind functions, as long as every fort night or thirty day period I get the payslip that pays the bills, I am happy.
Limiting my powerful creation machine, that in my mind, to the 1st gear then back to neutral. Even though my "gears" are unlimited.
At times, being caught at the centre of my two fears:
- A fear of failure and,
- A fear of success.
Afraid to move forward because I have created in my mind a movie of what will happen in the future, how arrogant of me, and it wasn't a movie that I liked or had a good ending for me.
I am not in charge, I used to say to myself unconsciously, so I am going to let the community of "they" control my life.
Removing me, disempowering myself from the responsibility of changing the things that I do not like, the things I do not want in my life, because it is "their" fault that a, b, c happened/did not happen.
"Because I am not capable of creating such unworthy circumstances in my life. I mean why would I?" I used to think.
Not realising that I was doing exactly that, and continuing to do so from every moment, from the now onwards.
And the cycle continued due to my ignorance.

And when I fall off my wagon of thinking in the positive, I get conscious of that, then get back on. Because God rewards those who are happy or feel good most of the time.
As addictive as thinking in the negative might be.
Now to the question of how ma can change her mind set to one that will attract wealth, abundance and feel good vibes.
To that I would say: Start "echoing":).
One of the ways that I can change my mind set is through continuous, persistent repetition of a new idea and/or worthy ideal.
This is something that I first heard of from the free downloadable audios I got upon registering with The Succeed Magazine.
By saying "continuous, persistent repetition" I mean to say it is a lifetime commitment.
That is why not a lot of us are "rolling in money" as the saying goes. This is because of the words "persistence," which is another word for faith if you think about it, and "lifetime commitment."
The lot of us would rather keep going at the rate that we are going because it's less strenuous and easier than this "mind thing that does not work." Even though your entire life is based on the existence and usage of this "mind thing that does not work."
Because it's easier for us humans - most of us - to think in negative than it is to think in positive, that's why, in Bob Proctor's words in the Secret DvD that can also be found at Amazon.com, "10% of the people in the world hold 90% of all the money that is been made."
This is the reluctance that kills - mentally, spiritually, and physically - a lot of the people out there.
When that I mean when a new idea comes into our mind, depending on whether it is harmonious or not with our current programming, we either accept it or reject it.
This happens almost immediately, so here comes Musa who tells you that not only can you be a Multi Billionaire but all the bad things that you are currently experiencing in your life, you have attracted.
If you don't start rolling on the floor, with tears in your eyes, laughing, then you would start spitting on me, cursing me, throwing stones at me and drive nails through my wrists and ankles and crucify me. Or anything in between.
Maybe people ask themselves what their family and friends would say once they find out that they are in to this mind thing.
So they would rather stay poor, in the broadest sense of the word, than accept in their lives the abundance that is in the Universe/ Life/ God.
Like ask yourself how much time do you put in a day into doing the things that you would need to do, that will one day improve your life from what you are currently experiencing to want you would have be living?
Because you sleep, you travel, you might even work or do school, then you buy groceries or hang out with friends, cook, clean, fetch the kids or siblings, come back home, watch tv, play video/computer games, go out, do overtime at work, do the laundry, read a novel, go to gym...sleep?
How many hours did you say again?
...it's shocking ne?
Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes.
And then you go to church with the impression that not only does it please God that you are (going to church, that is), but that he will answer you every time you ask for something. [Musa laughs to himself]
Don't get me wrong, there is nothing I love and believe in more than the being that is known as God/the Universe/Life.
It is because of this Source that I am now blessed with this abundance of wealth I am experiencing and that I am deeply and whole-heartedly grateful for.
You know what...on second thoughts let me leave this for another blog post.
Now where was I?
Oh yes, one can change their mind set from lack to abundance through continual repetition of the images she prefers, since the mind thinks in pictures, that are backed by purpose and a burning desire.
And if this change of mind set is something you really what above all else, then this is the change you will truly experience.
Because if nothing else exist apart from you and your goal, keeping in mind it is this kind of thinking that will give you the things you desire all the time, guaranteed, then it is yours.
"Seek and it shall be given onto you."
Hence the books, audios, websites, blogs I continue to update and recommend for you.
"It is through enriching others, that you become rich."
Because I am God's message.
So I give because God/The Universe/Life is Giving.
And Giving is Love.
