What's In Your Heavenly Account?
Guide To Spiritual Economics
It was a pleasant Saturday night
in November 1998. My friend and I
attended a church meeting where a renowned television minister spoke about
heavenly accounts. The idea
impressed us, since we had not thought about it before.
I have a heavenly account! Such
an idea! I found it to be so
Believe me, that I had a
heavenly account was what I'd called good news!
Further, I realized that since I had a heavenly account, a spiritual
account, everyone had such an account. Each person has a heavenly account and it
is infinitely endowed.
This kind of news I had been
looking for, for such a long time. Id attended prosperity workshops and seminars
and had facilitated numerous prosperity discussion groups, workshops and
seminars for many years this tied it together for me. this news caused me to
look at wealth, prosperity and abundance from the inner perspective.
That Saturday night speaker told
us how he found out about his heavenly account and what he did to find out what
was in it. He recommended that we
would do the same. For many days
afterwards, my friend and I talked about what we heard.
Mostly we were coming to terms with the idea that we indeed have our
very own heavenly accounts. Just
what we would do next took a bit longer to see.
Yet, so important it was just to
know this. It was the greatest prize to know I had my very own spiritual
account. I wanted to know more about it, but I had to find a way to obtain more
information about the heavenly account. As
it is usually for me, another part of this knowing appeared before me a few
I am a writer and had started my
work on TRIBES SCOUTING IN THE PROMISED LAND.
Ideas were flowing - unfolding daily as I sat before my computer in a
receiving mode. At that time, I
worked in my office across the hall from my bedroom.
With televisions on for background noise, I had set the dial for a
religious station. It was time for
one of my favorites. My ears perked
up when I heard the speaker mention how he had accessed his heavenly account.
This came initially as a surprise, but I knew in moments I would hear
more of what I needed to know about this phenomenon!
I knew I was going to gain access to my heavenly account.
I stopped my work and watched
remainder of the show. I gave it my undivided attention.
From the show, certain core ideas came up. I knew I would explore them
further. I wrote down Scriptural references the speaker gave so I could study
them closely. I took many notes and kept them beside me for further review after
the show was over.
I read the passages the speaker
listed, as well as other passages I had used over the years in my studies and
teaching. I was intrigued by the
notion of increase the terms used were 30-fold, 60-fold and 100-fold.
I wanted to know what this meant. I'd noticed numerous teachers had used
the numbers as multiples. In other words, the way they used the numbers, 30-fold
represented 30 times an amount.
My custom was and still is to
ask Spirit, whom I often refer to as my Inner Being when I needed to know
something. Whatever Id asked
Spirit, Spirit showed. Spirit revealed what I'd asked in ways I could
I wanted to know about my
heavenly account and I wanted to know and understand how to use my heavenly
account. In about a month, slightly fewer than 30 days, I wrote the first
version of this book. So you could know how I operate when I've wanted to
know something, I'd asked Spirit and then I'd write down what Spirit revealed to
me. While I do this writing, my
intent is not always to write a book. Primarily, writing is how I keep track of
the details that had come forth, including tests and experiments I'd made with
the information. However, the information that came was so very delightful, that
I got so excited about sharing it with others.
I offered it in print and ebook form to others, presenting something that
will benefit those who read it and operate with what they saw and understood.
Ill tell you right now: I
wrote what I got from Spirit and please know it was at the level of my
understanding at the time. In my
first version of this book, heavy in religious language, my explanation of
increase was consistent with what other speakers had begun to present.
As I wrote, I talked with my friend about what had come.
After a while, she pointed out a peculiar situation. It seemed I'd
present my findings to her and in about three to four weeks, shed hear
certain speakers present what they had found during their shows. Of the
concepts, she commented that the speakers were about six months behind my
presentations. It appeared we were on the same or closely parallel paths.
It was evident to me that the
speakers and I were getting pretty much the same information and we were
interpreting it in similar ways. You could say we were on the same wave
operating in similar vibrations. We were operating in spiritual consciousness.
In late year 2000, I found my
original understanding of increase barely captured the meaning of fold.
I knew then that I had to revise this book.
I understood increase was multiplication but in my newer
understanding, I saw how to increase and multiply as the Scriptures instruct.
The instruction is to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth. The key was in
Cell division shows how fold
works. The process is increase and
multiplication. Here is an easy way to think of it. I have three apples and each
apple has seeds in it. I can count the seeds in each apple or I could count
seeds in one apple and multiply that number by three to tell you how many seeds
I had. But the real question is this: how many apples did I have? How many
apples were in the seeds?
Lets simplify it: how many
apples are in a single seed? As simple as this may seem, the answer is beyond
anything I can count. Looking at an
apple tree, I know it grew from one seed. It gave fruit. In only one season, how
many apples would that be?
Perhaps this is the first fruit
from the apple tree that first crop. But
lets say the apple tree gave fruit for many seasons. Do you see what I mean?
How many apples came from that one seed?
When I first worked with my
heavenly account, I used the process the speakers who introduced them to
determine the status of my account. I considered what was in my account based on
what I had given in tithes and offerings and multiplied those amounts by the
fold that seems most appropriate. I designed a form to show it. I soon found one
problem in my accounting. My actions of giving tithes and offerings did not
influence the amounts in my account.
How could I say this? After all,
this is what the various teachers taught. They taught that our heavenly account
accrued benefits according to our giving. This factor is inconsistent with
Scripture. We are told repeatedly that God is the Source; God is the Supply.
This means my Father God established my heavenly account for me. Indeed, God placed my heavenly account within me. My actions
are important. They determine my capacity to access my account. My task is to access it, not to fill it.
Notice this analogy. The farmer
plants a seed: the seed grows according to its Inner Reality. It grows according
to the contents within it. One apple seed grows into many harvests of apples.
The outcome is infinite. The farmer plants the seed so he may harvest apples.
Since the farmer is in the business of harvesting, he plants many seeds.
Each idea is a seed. Each thing
is formed of seeds, but is itself a seed. One thing I had become proficient in
doing was creating forms for gathering and transferring information. So, I
created a form a seed - that grew into more forms. The forms were useful and
led to more information about my heavenly account. I gave a copy of the form to
my friend so she could play with it to see what she had in her heavenly
account. We did well with what we knew.
The variety of forms I designed
helped me to capture a record-keeping method for my heavenly account. I designed
withdrawal slips and forms to keep track of increases and other additions
and finally a ledger. With all my forms and slips and other record-keeping
methods, I found I could at best make a partial accounting. Still with these
devises, I found repeated evidence that led me to greater clarity on certain
passages of Scripture. For instance, I finally got it what Jesus the Christ
meant when He spoke of the widows mite.
Something in her giving made the value of her gift exceed the offerings
presented by those who gave from their plenty. The difference comes in how
you are seeing are you seeing with your heart or seeing with your eyes?
Seeing with the heart is seeing with the mind's eye while seeing with the eyes
refers to a physical sense. The widow gave a physical amount that represented a
seed amount from her heavenly account. Lets say shed given a penny, but
was thinking 30-fold a penny when she presented her gift. Thinking 30-fold a
penny and feeling the experience of 30-fold a penny as she gave, she gave a
Back to the apple seed how
many apples are in the seed! Or
what is 100-fold a penny? It became clear to me that He meant something very
special when he said, Lay up your treasures in heaven.
Regardless of what I held in my
hands, the contents of my heavenly account far exceeded it. Consider how you
determined your worth. Do I determine my worth by what is in my hands or what is
in my heavenly account? Is my
treasure in my hands or purse or bank account or is it in my heavenly
account? How do I look at the penny
or dollar in my hands? Do I see it
as seed or do I see it as the money I have in my hands?
While writing the earlier
version of Whats In Your Heavenly Account? I thought I knew the extent
of my treasure by what I counted. Even then, I knew there was so much more. I
reached a point where I stopped counting. The numbers reached gargantuan
proportions. The amounts in my heavenly account were infinite and I knew it.
Most important was this: I
realized my bank accounts did not determine my wealth or the level of my
treasures. The bank balances did not tell it. I realized these as temporary
things. They go up and they go down. Knowing about my heavenly account, my
spiritual account, I learned to look at my bank accounts in a different way than
I had previously. I had to come to terms with the fact that how I handled my
spiritual account determined the potential for my bank account. That is, what I
am aware of how I see in my spiritual account determines the content of my
When I did not know I had a spiritual account, to determine my financial
assets, I had to keep track of the amounts in my bank accounts. I did not know,
however, that the energy I'd radiated when I'd handled the accounts, whether in
my mind or tangibly, affected them. I
did not know that when I felt good about the accounts, I had more; and when I
felt bad about them, I'd caused the accounts to be depleted. Still, I felt good
when the accounts contained a certain amount and I felt bad uneasy, when the
accounts fell below that amount. I
knew I could spend and purchase what I wanted when the amounts were, as I
preferred. I held back on spending when the amounts lowered and figured out ways
to increase the bank balances. These actions were based on my attitudes toward
the account and each attitude affected the flow of funds through the accounts.
This was all I knew to do. The
amounts in my bank accounts depended on what I deposited into them. It was all
about what I did or did not do and what I did and how I did it geared my
thinking of myself. My concept of
self got caught up in my net worth. I held my head up high when I had plenty of
money in the bank and held my head down when I felt pressured about money I did
not have. Still, these attitudes conveyed energy as I'd radiated it. Feeling
confident, I radiated confidence related to money causing increase. Feeling
pressured radiated restrictions, causing money to seem limited.
Knowing I have a spiritual
account makes the difference in how I see my wealth. That it is a spiritual
account and I have nothing to do with whats in it takes the pressure off. I
do not have to feel pressured about money anymore. I know my Father God sees to
it that I have the supply I need.
The supply I need is in my
heavenly account. It is in my spiritual account. My greatest concern is to
access my spiritual account. When I'd access my spiritual account, I'd arrange
for a transfer of funds from the invisible to the visible world. My task is to
designate that funds are transferred into the bank accounts or into any other
accounts investment accounts, business accounts, scholarship funds and other
avenues of distribution.
It is vital that I'd shifted my
thinking from balances to access and focus my attention on how to access my
heavenly account. How to access my
spiritual account makes this book revision worthwhile.
The point of accessing the
spiritual account is to transfer what I'd required to places I'd designated. The
process is similar to the electronic transfer of funds. But it is the transfer
of any desire from your Inner Reality to physical reality. More than funds are in your spiritual account. Always, more
funds are in the spiritual account than you can possibly imagine.
While the language of this book
is plain and simple, and I speak very little religion. In other words, while I
quoted several passages of Scripture, I moved into the spiritual meanings.
Primarily, I speak spirituality, because Spirit gives life. I speak Energy. I
talk vibrations and frequencies higher vibrational frequencies (HVF) and
lower vibrational frequencies (LVF). In this book, I talk feelings and
experiences. Feelings show the energies I'd radiated. Experiences show how I'd
played out certain scenes in the mind.
As you may have already noticed,
my feelings impact the flow of funds through my hands or possession. When
I'd operated in the higher vibrational frequencies, I'd caused the flow, but
when I'd operated in the lower vibrational frequencies, I'd inhibited the flow.
Speaking of spiritual matters
it is God, my Abba Father, the Invisible Force of the Universe of which I am
a manifest force. I speak of
Consciousness and of Inner Reality. God is the Word and the Word is
Consciousness, the whole of Consciousness. All that exists was birthed out of
Consciousness. My Father is the Birther all that exists was birthed out of
the Father. Consciousness is within and the within is the Inner Reality, the
inner world. The inner world is heaven the invisible world. Taking action in
the inner world is Imagination, the action of images, and the actions that cause
things to appear in the visible world. Causing things to happen is ruling a
As a manifest force, I
acknowledge that I sprang forth from the Invisible Force of the Universe. I am a
spiritual being. I make of myself the image of God that I am according to how I
see myself. I make of my wealth the image of God that it is according to how I
see myself. I make of my health the image of God that it is according to how I
see myself. I make of my relationships the image of God that they are according
to how I see myself. I manifest God through my conception of self.
In this book, I quoted verses
and passages of Scripture and discussed these as they helped me understand how
to access my heavenly account. The Scriptures provided guidance for spiritual
beings. We are spiritual beings wearing human garments known by the names we are
As the spiritual being, I am the
Actor who is playing the part of the character known by my name in various
roles. I am the Image that acts while wearing the mask you'd recognized as my
face. I am the only Actor and I am the only Image that acts. The mask and
garment I wear is a mere arrangement of Mind it is how I'd arranged
Consciousness, to present a specific conception of self. the conception I'd
arranged for my character set a framework for my role in this drama of life,
showing how I'd played out the role.
Think for a moment about your
heavenly account. You have a heavenly account! You have a spiritual account!
Call it by either name, but settle it now that you indeed have a spiritual
account. Buy into it that your spiritual account contains all the supply you can
ever need or require so you may never be in want of any thing needful to your
good. As a spiritual being, this is your account and you may access it whenever
you'd choose - to benefit the character you are playing. The role you'd chosen
for your character determines the use you'd make with your account. In other
words, where you had chosen to play the part of a person in poverty, you'd
limited the flow of goods from your account. Where you'd chosen to play the part
of a person of wealth, you'd opened the doors to your account, so goods may flow
freely into your visible world.
Throughout the Scriptures are references to my spiritual account to
my wealth and prosperity. In Deuteronomy 28 I am greeted with the idea that
blessings shall come upon me and overtake me. All I have to do is heed His
Voice. In other words, pay attention and regard the Word of the Lord. The Word
of the Lord is sure: blessings come upon me now!
To heed the Word of the LORD is
to pay attention to the consciousness you are occupying. The consciousness you
occupied is the rule or power of your experiences. Be in the consciousness of
blessings. Experience the consciousness of blessings.
From the passage, I found I am
blessed in the city and in the field; blessed coming in and going out. My
storehouse is blessed and He makes me have a surplus of prosperity He opens
to me His good treasury. He said He
blesses all the work of my hand I shall lend to many nations and I shall not
borrow; He makes me the head and not the tail, that I am above and not beneath.
Shall I go ahead and heed this Word? Shall I regard it? Shall I believe
what I see and hear of the Word of God? That I am blessed and blessings come
upon me and overtake me! And that I am blessed in many ways when I pay attention
and regard the Word that I am blessed!
What is blessed? Blessed is
empowered to prosper! It is empowered to excel! A blessing is the power to
excel. I have the power to excel in all matters. The consciousness of blessing
is the power to prosper and excel. This includes the power to access my
spiritual account. I'd use this power during my actions in the inner world by
operating in the consciousness of blessing. I'd play out scenes in the mind
where I'd excelled. I'd play out scenes in the mind where I'd prospered. I'd
looked into my spiritual account and used it for my activities in the city, in
the field coming in and going out. With the right to use to my spiritual
account, I welcomed every opportunity to excel and prosper.
So I'd recognized by the Word
that I possessed the power to excel in the city and in the field. The city is a
consciousness with definite boundaries and the field is a consciousness of
expansion. I'd possessed the power to excel in my coming in and going out. I
performed very well, whether I'd entered or left a consciousness. My storehouse
is empowered to surpass any prior bounty. My storehouse was my treasury and it
signified my spiritual account, my Inner Bank Account.
My consciousness of abundance expanded to my treasury. The work of my
hand was empowered to excel. Whatever I'd touched prospered. This is
excellence the power to do extremely well. To exceed!
To heed the Word of the Lord is to recognize that I'd possessed the power
to excel. To heed the Word of the Lord is to buy into the idea that I'd do
extremely well in whatever areas I'd chosen to work or play. I could expect to
exceed just as the seed in the apple. The seed comes from one apple and it
can expect to far exceed its origin. How many apples are in the seed?
I regarded anything that came through me as precious and the Scriptures
told me that my Abba Father, through whom I emerged, regarded me as precious. I
am precious! God, the Invisible Force of the Universe loves me!
I embraced the whole of Consciousness and emerged with great bounty in
every area of life.
God loves me so much that He
gave His only begotten Son that I might have everlasting life! Eternal,
perpetual, endless life! Infinite! That
I am so loved and so precious means I have that which is perpetual, endless,
infinite and vibrantly alive. From the whole of Consciousness, the Image that
acts the solutions emerged. This is my own wonderful Imagination the images
that move in and through my mind. One such image is my heavenly account!
It is infinite! It is perpetual and endless!
A passage in the New Testament goes like this: To him who has, more is
given. To him who has not, that which he has will be taken away. These words
were spoken after the three workers gave their reports of what they had done
with the talents the worker with five gained five more. The worker
with two gained two more, but the worker with one buried it. The two others were
aware of what they had, so they made use of what they had. The one who buried
his talent did nothing with what he had and it was taken away from him and given
to the one who had ten. He did not know what he had. He considered that he had
nothing. That worker did not value or treasure what he had.
Each of us was given Imagination. Do we value and treasure the capacity
to take action with images? Do we recognize and accept the capacity for taking
action with images in the invisible world as being the cause of our experiences
in the visible world?
My work with my talents is to
cherish the power to excel to be aware of this power and to value it. My
blessing is my power to excel! My
blessing is Imagination, the capacity to step into the Image that acts and excel
in whatever areas I'd chosen. To know I have this power means I know the power
of one not to hide it, but to plant it so it grows. When you see the value of 30-fold a penny, you will see the
power of one. My task is to step
into the Image that acts the value of 30-fold a penny to see it become visible
in my world.
The unplanted apple seed yields
nothing, yet planted in cultivated and fertile soil, grows into a tree that
bears fruit perpetually. Not aware
of my spiritual account, it is as though I do not have a spiritual account. I
cannot access an account I do not know I have.
Where I do not see my physical tangible wealth as an extension or
outcome of my spiritual wealth, I set my tangible wealth in a position where it
can be taken away from me. What I have can be taken away because I do not
know what I have. I have to know what I have so I can experience it. I'd enter
the consciousness of my spiritual account and play out scenes where I'd made use
of its contents.
Whatever I have, if I do not
have it in spiritual reality, it is subject to loss and destruction. If I have
it in spiritual reality and know it, I'd step into the Image that acts, and
experience it because I knew it was permanent and perpetual.
Where I am aware only of
tangible and physical reality, I am aware of the outer expression of things
only. I am aware of outcomes only. In this awareness, I'd measure with my
intellect and with my physical senses only. I'd react to what I'd encountered
either with HVF or LVF. That I'd reacted shows I am not aware of what
produced the things I see and otherwise measure with my senses, but I'd claimed
the things I'd encountered caused my reactions. I'd given my power over to the
things I'd observed in the visible world.
Things tangible, things in
physical reality do not produce themselves so I could use up things
tangible, and they are no more. They
no longer existed after I'd used them up. Things physical result from things not
seen. They resulted from the activity of Spirit the movement of energy,
arranged into patterns of experience. These things are formed of Energy. As I'd
given attention only to the things produced, I'd given attention to something
that existed for a moment.
The bank balance is one such
example. To give my attention to the bank balance to watch the bank balance,
I could see it go up or go down. But what produced the bank balance? I could
look at what I did in physical reality work I'd done, income streams I had
set up these must remain at a certain activity level to cause the bank
balance to go up. But what happened when the activity ceased? The bank balance
Think about this: I am working
every day to set up numerous income streams yet the bank balance goes down. What
happened? Is the bank balance the outcome of the work I'd done or the income
streams I'd set up? Or is there something else? Were the persons downsized from
their careers because they were not working? Did those who lost vast sums from
the stock market not set up income streams? Entrepreneurs out of business
were they not working or creating income streams?
What happened when I'd used my
power to excel in spiritual reality? My bank account is an outer expression of
what I'd done with my spiritual account. How did I use my power to excel in
spiritual reality? How did I access my spiritual account and how did I cause my
bank account to show at the visible action I'd taken with my spiritual account?
The wellness of my physical organism is an outer expression of my spiritual account. My relationships, my business and my home are outer expressions of my spiritual account. My accomplishments express at the outer my spiritual account. My lifestyle shows what Id done with my spiritual account the degree of access and how well I made transfers. Please understand that all work with my spiritual account I'd done at the inner level deeper than my memories and beliefs formed through my experiences in physical reality.
