Emmet Fox, a 1940’s new thought minister, stressed the importance of setting a mental equivalent to create an abundant life, borrowing the term from chemistry and physics. If engineers can work out the equivalent of heat in order to determine how much energy it represents in the form of another energy, so can we. What does this say about the way we are perfectly capable of instituting positive change in our lives and world?

You can create the equivalent of every experience or object in the physical world by changing the thought to which it corresponds. Whatever you want in life – a satisfying job, healthy body, friends, or opportunities, you must first set a mental equivalent to attract it. If you have something you want to be rid of – ill health or strife, then begin by striking the belief that those ideas and experiences must be part of your world and the world at large.

Just like we clean our closets after the holidays (and good heavens, hopefully we do) old baggage filled with a limiting belief system must change in order to create new realities. Instead, we can choose positive, empowering thoughts to provide a foundation for our experiences and what we demonstrate, not just in the business world, but in our personal lives as well. So, when we take a look at our year-end finances, and things don’t look too good, it’s an invitation to abandon old assumptions about lack.

To open room for your new, abundant mindset, we’ve put together a newsletter on prosperity, which is really just about resetting the dial to a new mental equivalent. What would you like to see happen this year? Whether it is a bigger bank account or more love, feel what you want with tremendous passion and clarity, be grateful, and rejoice in the abundance of everything. You can notice joy and prosperity everywhere and view the world with awe.

Let’s anticipate positive change for ourselves, and others, by holding positive thoughts and working on our mental equivalent!
