There is a place inside all of us
where poverty lives.
Take a deep breath

Go to that place and look at Poverty
What does being poor/Poverty
Look like to you?
Smell like?
Taste like?
Sound like?
Feel like?
Now quickly sketch or describe it on the paper
don't worry about the details
focus on the essence
Now take all of your feelings about Poverty/being poor
and pour it into the paper
your anger
your hopelessness
your fear
shame
sadness
See the poverty flow from you
Burn the paper completely to ashes
as we all say:
Poverty flow from me
As I will,
So Mote it Be!
Now light the green candle
Visualize money flowing into your life
Handle the denominations
Pay your bills
See a positive balance in your checkbook
See the balance growing larger
Spend the money
We are wealthy
Thank you Lord and Lady for
Your bounty and Your grace
The abundance you weave for us is
accepted gratefully into our lives
To nourish and sustain us
As we work your will in the world
