The following is an excerpt from Dr. Patricia J. Crane’s "Open Your Arms to Receiving." She wants you to open yourself to receiving by creating wealth consciousness, and then watching your dreams come true:
Did you know that there is enough money on this planet for everyone (yes, everyone) to have a million dollars? So why is it that Bill Gates has BILLIONS, others have a million, and others have only a small amount? The answer is simple: consciousness.
Each of us has played out the beliefs from childhood about deservability and money to create whatever we have in our lives right at this moment. If all the billions on the planet were redistributed tomorrow and no one changed their consciousness about money, it would all be back to the same people in the same amounts in about six months. Are you willing to change your consciousness RIGHT NOW about what you deserve to receive?
Take a few minutes to sit quietly. Close your eyes and allow your mind to gently drift back in time to some significant experience about money when you were growing up. What happened? What was the belief you developed from that experience? If it was limiting, imagine yourself as that child and begin to tell the child that it’s time to create a new set of ideas about money that are expansive and supportive. Tell the child what those new affirmations are. If the experience you remembered helped you with positive thoughts about money, reinforce those with your inner child.
Ask yourself: who would you betray if you were financially successful? When I ask that question in my courses, the answer is often mom or dad (or both). Somehow, the child part feels guilty going beyond the parents’ limitations. You can close your eyes and talk to mom or dad, or anyone else who had a significant influence on your prosperity beliefs, and tell them that it’s OK for both of you to be prosperous and successful.
Go to the mirror and do the same thing. Be willing to go past old limitations. When you accept your prosperity, you also encourage others to do the same. Your life can be an example of willingness to receive from our abundant universe. “Prosperity,” in my definition, is specifically about money and materials things, while “abundance” has to do with a full life in all areas.

In Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff About Money, the author, Richard Carlson claims, "True wealth consciousness suggests a complete absence of money worries; an awareness that there is always plenty of money to go around. People who live with true abundance never worry about having enough—they know that creating wealth and affluence is a function of their own mind-set. Worry keeps us from feeling free and joyful. We are never truly free until we break the chains of fear. But once we do our lives will never be the same. A life without worry is a life of abundance, a life well lived.”
He reminds us about our tendency to attract the experience that which our mind is focused on.
In essence, it is virtually impossible, he argues, to attract abundance in our lives if we constantly worry about not having enough of anything. That would be allowing our fears to interfere with “our means of creation.”
On the other hand, he asserts that if we are free of worries, if we maintain wealth consciousness, money will flow to us in inexhaustible ways. And that we will literally create ways to keep attracting money into our lives.
He goes on to say, “Make no mistake about it: Wealth consciousness comes first! You will not suddenly develop wealth consciousness if and when you become wealthy. It is the other way around. You develop wealth consciousness by eliminating worry, by trusting in the universe and in your own resources. Once you secure your wealth consciousness, true abundance is just around the corner.”
