When I first stumbled upon Rev. Ike, I had to binge watch his YouTube channel and all videos posted of his sermons and interviews. They are really that good, engaging and some of them had me cracking up. His messages are about working with mind science, prosperity consciousness, having the right thinking, and being a deliberate creator.
Applying his 10 Commandments of Money to my own life actually helped me find a tech job within a couple of weeks of looking. Mind you I’m in a city where it’s considered “hard” to find a good job let along one at a tech company. I was hired for a different position than the one I interviewed for because the owner of the company really enjoyed my interview. That was after a year and a few months of looking for a new job and barely earning a living at a part-time job I really didn’t like. Now, I like my job, I’m way more secure, and I’m healing my relationship with money.
Rev. Ike says his 10 Commandments of Money “represent 10 attitudes about money which will magnetize your mind for money. Because it is your mind which is a magnet. Your mind draws to you whatever you believe in. If you believe in the goodness of money, it will magnetize your mind to draw more money into your experience. If you believe that money is scarce and hard to get, that’s exactly the way it will be.”
Check out Rev. Ike’s 10 Commandments of Money below and affirmations for magnetizing your mind for money.
1st Commandment: Thou shalt not think that money is evil.
Instead you should affirm:
money is totally good, my desire for money is totally good and right. I want and use money only for good purposes. Thank God for money!
2nd Commandment: Thou shalt not speak evil of money. Thou shalt not say money is hard to get or to hold. Money has ears and will flee from thee.
Money is wonderful stuff. I see and feel myself enjoying more money. I see money flowing into my life with ease. I see and feel money coming into my life in new, exciting ways. I am open and receptive to new, honest money making ideas. Thank God for money!
3rd Commandment: Thou shalt do right about money.
I am willing to do right about money. I have no need to do wrong about money or to do wrong to get money. Thinking right and doing right about money draws more and more money onto me. I pay my bills with joy. I use money with joy. Money has no power over me to make me do evil. I have all power over money.
I see myself rejoicing and paying all of my bills with ease. I bless all of the people that I owe money to. I bless all of the companies that trust me with their goods and services. And I pay my bills with ease and rejoicing. I send love with every payment.
4th Commandment: Thou shalt give right about money.
Rev. Ike’s definition of money: “…money is the getting power of the mind. Getting is the being power, doing power of the mind. Money is the power of acquisition. Whatever acquires, whatever gets – that is money. So ultimately, mind power is money. Self-image is money because whatever you feel yourself as possessing will be brought to you, will be bought for you in mind. Money is the acquiring power of the mind.
Share what you are, the good that you have with others and with life and life will bless you abundantly.”
5th Commandment: Thou shalt not serve money, rather, money shalt serve thee.
I am the boss of money. I tell money what to do. I call money and money has to come. Money must obey me. I am not the servant of money. Money is my loving, obedient servant. Money is always obeying my belief about it. I am the master of money.
6th Commandment: Thou shalt be aware that money loves thee, money loves to fill thy hands and pockets
Money loves me. Money loves to fill my hands and pockets. Money will not stay away from me. Money loves to serve me. Money loves for me to enjoy it. The more I use and enjoy money correctly, the more it flows into my life. I love money in its right place. I love the good that I can do with money.
7th Commandment: Thou shalt not fear money, that it will corrupt thee. “Only the corruptible can be corrupted.” If thy religion cannot stand money, then thy religion is bad – not money.”
I have no fear of money. I am not afraid that money will corrupt me. Money cannot make me a worse person. I am a better person because I have money to meet my needs, to enjoy, and to share. Money is not against my religion. Money cannot come between me and God. I can serve God better with the convenience of money.
8th Commandment: Thou shalt not deny money. If thou deny money, money will deny thee. If though art accused of having money, deny it not. Never say, “I don’t have any money,” even if you don’t. “Let the weak say ‘I am strong.'”
I make it my business to think, act, and look like I have money. I must become that which I say I am. Therefore, I boldly declare I AM rich! I see it and feel it. I AM rich in Health, Happiness, Love, Success, Prosperity, and Money.
9th Commandment: Thou shalt see to it that thy money makes money, no matter how much or how little you have. Thou shalt have “Money Making Money!” Money loves to increase an make thee rich. Money shall work for thee.
I see and feel myself having “Money Making Money!” I see myself having money drawing interest. I see money working for me; bring me more money in honest, exciting ways.
10 Commandment: Thou shalt not seek “something for nothing.” However, though shalt make the most of the money.
I realize that there is no such thing as “something for nothing.” I avoid all offers that promise “something for nothing.” Therefore, I don’t get caught in losing deals. I realize that I cannot get “something for nothing” from God or man. I serve God by right thinking, right doing, and right giving. And I am rewarded “according as my works shall be.” I serve mankind in my work – whatever it is. Life pays me according to my thinking, doing, and giving.
