5 Must-Read Money Consciousness Books To Create More Wealth In Your Life
Wealth consciousness is knowing there is enough money out there for everyone – for you, for your clients, for your so-called ‘competition’ (and there’s no such thing as competition in a wealth conscious mindset – but that’s a topic of its own).
Everyone has a Money Story (or 10!). Some of those stories come from the society we grew up in, some come from our parents and some we create from our past experiences. Our money stories are the only things that hold us back from accessing all this ‘enough’ness.
When your money story changes, the flow of money into your life changes, too.
Our beliefs about money determine how much we charge for our services if we're entrepreneurs, how much we spend, how much abundance we see turn up in our lives.
So, if you know you could be doing something differently to bring more money into your life, or if your business is not making what you feel it could be making, consider trying out one (or all) of these books to transform your relationship with money.
#1 THINK & GROW RICH by Napoleon Hill
Published back in 1937, Think & Grow Rich is one of the best selling books of all time. It’s helped millions of people to shape the way they see money and wealth and it teaches that wealth comes from taking appropriate action.
There’s a passage in the book where Hill proposes 6 steps to turn your dreams of wealth into actual money. He suggests:
- Specifically fixing in your mind the exact amount of money you desire and then determining what you intend to give in return for the money.
- Pick a date you intend to have the money by.
- Create a plan and put it into action.
- Then, write out a statement about how much money you decided on, when you want it by and what action you’re going to take.
- Read your statement aloud, twice a day while you see, feel and believe that you already have the money.
There are so many versions of this book to choose from – it’s also been used as a text book to teach wealth consciousness by many business coaches. Book Depository has a great selection HERE.
#2 THE ENERGY OF MONEY by Maria Nemeth
Maria Nemeth is a Psychologist and coach who teaches people to achieve their personal life goals and financial wealth. Our beliefs around money in our personal lives impact the financial success of our business, too.
Maria’s book, The Energy of Money, combines a “complete self-help and self-discovery regimen with proven methods of money management”. It includes 12 principles to help you identify beliefs, patterns and habits about money, along with fears of scarcity and ‘there’s not enough to go around’. The 12 principles also show you how to consciously focus on your money energy and to develop your own path to increasing your financial successes.
Along with the 12 principles, the book contains easy-to-follow exercises and meditations, worksheets, and other interactive processes.
#3 MONEY, AND THE LAW OF ATTRACTION by Esther and Jerry Hicks
Another take on changing the way you look at things so that the things you look at change, is Money, and the Law of Attraction. It explains that by focusing on the positive aspects of things around you, you begin to shift what comes to you. It gives another perspective to looking at money, success and abundance.
The book offers a number of processes and games to try if you want to improve your relationship with money, like the $100 game:
Put $100 in your wallet with the intention of mentally spending it every day, over and over again. While you’re going about your day contemplate what you could buy with that $100. You can spend it as money times as you like in a day because every time you spend it it’s automatically replenished (it’s still in your wallet every time you look in there).

There is also a set of 60 cards available that offer daily inspiration for nurturing your relationship with money HERE.

#5 LEVERAGING THE UNIVERSE: 7 STEPS TO ENGAGING LIFE’S MAGIC by Mike Dooley
Okay, so it doesn’t have ‘money’ in the title, but beliefs are beliefs, whether they’re about money or how good you are at what you do, or your ability to create a successful and fulfilling life for yourself.
Mike Dooley’s Leveraging the Universe is a “how-to” book that spells out what you can, should and must do to create success for yourself. He also tells you what you should never do (I like that).
Mike takes you through 7 steps, from understanding the nature of reality and your beliefs to getting those beliefs to line up with your dreams – and he also weaves his inspiring personal story of how he turned his fear into a fortune through the book.
You'll find more about Leveraging the Universe HERE.
