Haanel says, “The three things which all mankind desires and which are necessary for his highest expression and complete development are Health, Wealth and Love.”
Wealth is something that is be measured differently by different people depending on their circumstances. For the Syrian refugees, wealth may be simply enough to pay for a safe place to live, clothes to wear and food on the table in a country free from war. Many of us in the Western world view wealth as something that allows us take part in activities that make us happy. We might like to buy expensive gifts, live in elaborate houses with the best of furniture, go on lavish vacations and eat out at the best restaurants. For some of us, wealth is somewhere between the 2 extremes.
What is Wealth, however, without good health? Regardless of which of the above scenarios you find yourself in, health issues can rule your life. Steve Jobs had wealth but I am certain he would have traded all of it for good health. Unfortunately some people are unfortunate to be lacking in health and wealth. Those of us who have their basic financial needs met and do not suffer from major illness should be grateful every day for what we have.
So what if we had Wealth and Health and didn’t have Love in our lives? I would think that would be the most devastating of all scenarios. Many can survive lack of money and even good health if they are feeling the love of family and friends.
It is said that visualization of what we want helps us get what we want. We attract to ourselves that which we think about most. The answer then is to visualize the health we want the wealth that is appropriate for us and of course, love.
In order to get more love in our lives we have to give more to get more. We have to get rid of all the negative thoughts about others and replace those thoughts with positive ones. We can find the good in all if we look hard enough. Love can be shown in the simplest of ways. A compliment, doing something for others, hugs. This is what I am practicing this week and it makes me feel fantastic.
An example of a simple act of love is when I told my pharmacist that she had beautiful eyes. She said I made her day. If we all went about showing love to others, what a wonderful world this would be!
A powerful affirmation which can work on attracting health, wealth and love is one Haanel suggests, “I’m whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.” This has become my daily affirmation because that is what I want in my life and for those around me.
Let’s all try to give more love to all around us and make this world a better place.
