Today, I’m concluding the week spent looking at the teachings of Edwene Gaines and her influential work on the spiritual laws of prosperity. To recap, the laws she speaks of are these:

1) Tithing 10% of any income to wherever you get your spiritual food.
2) Forgiveness like a big dog.
3) Concrete goal setting with specific dates by which you wish to receive it
4) Finding your purpose through your passion

I share all this with you in the hope that you will feel as moved as I have been to examine your own life and see where you can make a big shift.

In my life, I’ve come across a few master teachers like Edwene: David Neagle, Reverend Deborah Johnson, Wayne Dyer, Robert Ohotto, Caroline Myss … these individuals have had a profound influence in my life.

How do you know the hallmark of a master teacher?

For me, it’s just one thing: they move me into action. There are a lot of teachers from whom I gather information. A nugget here and there stored away in my little head for use at another time.

But when I come across a teacher who speaks what I know to be true in my soul, I move into action.

Edwene’s work has catapulted me into doing things I’ve never done before: I’ve begun tithing (and more than the 10%), I’ve got my concrete goals down, I’m working on forgiveness (Dick Cheney, I’ll eventually get around to you. That’s Ph.D. level forgiveness for me there, buddy!) and I am already on my purpose.

Which is why I feel so strongly about Edwene Gaines. Her words and the unique way she delivers them captivates me like I haven’t been in a long time.

In fact, I’m giving serious thought to going to her retreat center and taking the Master Prosperity Teacher Training complete with firewalk. (EEEEK!) If I don’t do it this year, I most likely will do it in 2014 because I am called to that work.

Don’t know how, don’t know why. Just am.

I couldn’t *not* do it, if that makes any sense. To ignore it would be to ignore my soul’s calling and you know I’d be a crap teacher if I did that, right?

If you are lucky enough to run into a master teacher – someone whose words move you into action and change in your own life – honor that in whatever way feels right to you. Tithing is one way. Sharing their work with others if you have a blog or even on Facebook is another.

When you share what resonates deeply in your soul, you are contributing in a huge way to the change in consciousness of the Universe. I truly believe that and am grateful to have you all open to hearing my words.

Here’s Edwene in a 20 minute talk she did at Unity Church in Hawaii. She’s highly entertaining and I could listen to her speak all day (and will do that in the near future!).

I also want to encourage you to check out this longer video of a workshop she did at Agape Church. It’s Edwene at her very best and you’ll see why I adore this master spiritual teacher wrapped up as a humorous southern woman.
