Before I move on to Divine Wallops…a quick note.
You asked me “off air” how to reach the trust and faith that everything will come about as you desire. My first comment is to know that everything you dream of has ALREADY come about on the metaphysical plane, where there is no such thing as delay. Belief in waiting for something to happen is part of the Conformity Funnel and plays no part in wealth creation unless we allow it to.
Secondly: how to listen-up to the Divine Nudges we talked about.
It is not always easy to follow the Divine Nudges that are sent our way. Anxieties naturally creep in, often just at the least convenient moments. Old fears raise their heads above the windowsill, peering in at you and making you tremble. It can be confusing to know what to do.
One quick way to turn your attention back to the matter in hand (which is to create wealth in all its forms as quickly and effortlessly as possible) is to make sure you demand definite leads. This will help you to distinguish between a Divine Nudge and a jolt of fear based on old belief patterns.
Don’t be wishy washy with this one. Demand leads (rather than asking for them). Make definite statements – aloud if it helps.
For instance, you are about to look for somewhere to live in Austin, so make this statement: “I give thanks for finding the perfect new home at the perfect time in the perfect place” or “Bring me the right home at the right time in which I can flourish in every way.”
Don’t ask for a particular house or apartment. A lot of people make this mistake, asking for something very specific and then being disappointed when it doesn’t materialize. “But Richard,” they say to me, “I followed your advice and demanded a definite outcome, but still didn’t get what I wanted”.
“That’s because it was obviously not what is best for you,” is my reply. “You must make the definite demand, then hand over, trusting in the Way of the Weft, which is to listen, understand and respond in kind. If what you are asking for is in line with who you really are, you will receive the desired outcome (often much more quickly than appears possible!)
Indeed, it cannot be taken from you, because it is ALREADY YOURS. On the other hand, if what you are demanding is not in line with who you really are, it will never bring you fulfilment, so be grateful for not getting it!”
In other words, if something is not forthcoming, don’t push it. Struggle is part of the old race-belief, rather than the way of Natural Wealth. If you push something against its grain, you will only be pushing against your own.
For you right now, Gaye, the following demand might be useful: “Show me the perfect way to turn my income into six figures, now!” Or you can make this larger. It’s up to you. We are limited only by our expectations and our ability to choose to go beyond them!
Remember, we receive Divine Nudges ALL THE TIME: every second, every day – with each breath that we take. They are part of what inspires us. To help you to heed them, try simple statements like these: “I am fully awake in to my intuitions! I never miss a single trick! Give me definite leads!”
One thing here. Affirmations and demands such as these are simply tools to help direct you back to the Path of Natural Wealth. They are not the key to achieving your goals, because they are rooted in thought.
This is where a lot of people go wrong. They think that simply by thinking something it will immediately be so. But there is more to it than that. Thinking something is useful, but only if you have already changed the way you think from how you used to. We can’t change our lives if we’re still using old thought-patterns to do it. That’s like Einstein’s definition of insanity, doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result!
Changing the way we think is a starting point, but thoughts themselves do not activate lasting changes in our circumstances. They are the signposts, not the destination. They merely direct us onto to path.
What is it then that creates the real shifts and brings about swiftest, most effective change? Feelings. Change the way we feel and we shift the way we think, which means we start creating in a whole new way.
Feelings produce a deeper knowledge that runs within the cells without the resistance of logic. That knowledge brings certainty, calmness, assurance. It is the candle that lights your way to Natural Wealth and your Faith and Trust are the hands cupped around it, ensuring that the flame never blows out.
PRACTICE: So, my encouragement is to always have fun when you’re making demands or affirmations like the ones above. Sing them out loud. Chant them. Dance to them. Combine physical movement with the words. Get to a place where you can FEEL the shift inside you, the movement from fear to faith. Then bring that feeling with you into the day. If you waver at any moment, simply repeat the process (no matter where you are!) until you recapture the feeling.
Having fun with it really IS key!

Ah yes, the challenge of trusting in the way of things: it is perhaps the hardest challenge of all. We all have to deal with it, each and every day (or at least, we do if we were brought up in the west), but there are laws that underpin all existence I know you have a resistance to that word “law”, but I cannot think of a better word for the principles that lie behind and within all of creation: principles of light, frequency and resonance: the simple yet exquisite maths that forms the weft of the web around and within us. One of these laws is that when we hand over trust entirely to those governing principles, we empower ourselves in a new and significant way. We stop resisting and start “going with the flow”. That flow leads us, just as inexorably as a stream will lead us to the sea, to our natural wealth (something we all inherit).
It’s only when we don’t trust (when we resist the flow) that we become frustrated, angry, or sick; causing the dis-ease within us that shows up either as sickness, poverty or unhappiness.
The great thing is: we are given lessons all the time, each and every moment of the day. These lessons point us back to the flow. “There is the stream!” we are told. “Go with it! No matter how crazy it seems. No matter how much your head says it doesn’t like the idea. Go with flow. Re-join the stream. It’s part of you!”
Those lessons come as what I call Divine Nudges, as you say. At first, the nudges will be gentle, for we rarely stray far from the path to natural wealth when we are young. We know better than that. So, we may pick up a slight illness or feel a headache come on. That’s when to stop and say to yourself: “Am I acting from fear or faith?” Faith (trust) will always lead you back to the refreshing waters of the stream, the flow that leads to your Natural Wealth.
As we get older, we get more and more used to ignoring those warning signs. The checks get bigger, just like the mortgage and now there are credit card bills to pay and gas to put in the tank and groceries to buy…not just for us but for our families too. So we rationalise ourselves further and further from the stream. We learn not to go with the flow. And the lessons become more extreme.
Instead of Divine Nudges, we run the risk of getting full-blown Divine Wallops-In-The-Face! Serious illness (such as cancer) can be created, rather than a mild stomach pain or headache. Our bank balance can go from apparent comfort to zero almost overnight. Our loved ones may leave us.
This is something that happens to many, many people (I believe it’s happened to both you and me over the years) yet we so often still don’t heed the lessons. This is most likely because trusting in the weft of the web, the laws that underpin all existence is not something we are used to doing. The Conformity Funnel has seen to that.
The best compass I can offer for you to point the way back to the stream is to keep asking yourself that single question, again and again: “Am I acting from fear or faith?” It’s a simple, quick way to take back control, whilst simultaneously “handing over to trust”.
If the answer is “fear”, change direction. Right then and there. Don’t hesitate. Don’t wait for the Divine Nudge to become a Wallop! (I’ve had a few of these and they aren’t pleasant!). Just go for it. It may not be easy at first, but as with everything, the more you practice, the better you get at it. And you find yourself going with the flow more and more often. The furrowed brow more often becomes a smile: the smile that is a crucial aspect of your Natural Wealth (bearing in mind the Chinese Proverb that says: “A man who cannot smile must not open a shop”!
Often the systems by which we gauge wealth (such as the dial in your car) show us our subconscious fears: in this case, your fear of “running on empty” or running out altogether. You manifested the empty-sign as an outward gauge of your inner beliefs. That was your Divine Nudge.
The great thing is, you felt it and acted on it, which led to the second realisation, the clarification that your old habit was to check, check and check again (just to make sure the last mile had not somehow used up all your fuel!) Now that you’ve noticed that old habit, you can toss it in the recycle bin. One more thing off the list! That’s how the flow works. One thing leads to another, small stream becomes broad river, until one day we reach the sea.
Bearing in mind that our journey to the sea is not one that ends there…
Until next time, my best wishes, as ever,
