Wealth has many different meanings and interpretations as I found from reading the posts we have received for this carnival. I was fascinated to see that wealth comes old English word “weal”, which means “well-being” or “welfare”. The term was originally an adjective to describe the possession of such qualities. Wealth now days has many different interpretations from being prosperous, being rich, having abundance and accumulating resources. Check out the references on wealth at wikipedia.

Carole and I have selected 5 top articles on various aspects of wealth.

We lead off this Abundance Carnival  with a first time ever blog carnival contributor, Evelyn Lim from Attraction Mind Map asking What Is Wealth Consciousness? Evelyn’s concluding paragraph I thought was a good lead in for this edition.

When nothing else concerns you except what more you need, nothing can satisfy you and that truly will make you poor and needy. But when you rid yourself of worry and poverty consciousness, you leave yourself open for a new consciousness to come in and take root. By freeing your mind of all cares, you unclog the channel through which will flow all the abundance and wealth that comes from the infinite. You will have created Wealth Consciousness.

How important being grateful is in becoming wealthy. With Gratitude, Fear Disappears by Mark Butler , writing about how “fear disappears and abundance appears, when we embrace gratitude.”

And for something you may think is a little off topic, some color from Christine who provides an insight into spending time in Barcelona on the Cheap. If you have visited Barcelona, this may bring back the color and memories for you: I know it did for me.

The next Abundance Carnival (Wealth) will be over at The Healthy Living Lounge. To make entry times easier to remember, we are changing submission times to the 11pm est on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month, so the carnival will come out earlier in the week. Put your post on Wealth here.
