Thoughts Are Things

King of Pentacles Victorian Romantic Tarot

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches. ~ Napoleon Hill

While those in need of guidance, good leadership and material assistance appreciate the good King of Pentacles, he is not well-loved by everyone. The ease with which he manifests abundances is cause for jealousy in those who doubt themselves. He is also, at times, accused of being boring.

Be that as it may, his ability to stay focused on the things that matter, without fretting about them, instills the quiet confidence in everyone around him that he is capable of anything he sets his mind on. He has the Midas touch – minus the side effects.

He is the successful entrepreneur but also his loyal accountant. He is the local manager, vicar or school principal who is considered a ‘pillar of the community.’ He is the loyal husband and the father who makes sure that he is able to send his children to university without having to take out student loans.

He (or indeed she) is the person who has stepped up to their responsibilities and stopped looking around for an ‘adultier adult’ to cover for them.

The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus. ~ Bruce Lee

Affirmation: “I manifest abundance with ease. Paying attention to detail, I lovingly share with those in my care.”

Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for watching over me as I take care of business. Help me be a good and cheerful steward of infinite abundance. So mote it be! (Listen to prayer on Instagram)
