The Secret to Prosperity
Prosperity can include many things, but it is fundamentally a lifestyle and a mindset. Most people have prosperity associated with money. But thinking about money alone is never enough. If you see yourself as a poor person who is desperately in need of money, this is not likely to lead to a dramatic change in your situation. And feeling financially poor is relative. You could be making $100,000 a year and still be unable to pay your bills.
On the other hand, there are people making far less money than that who are perfectly content with their situation. It’s all about balance in your life and what is important to you. There are no rights or wrongs. It simply has to do with how you see things for yourself, and what kind of life you want to experience.
Let’s start with talking about your mindset and how you see yourself. Everyone has a certain, unique perspective on their own life. How do you frame yourself overall when it comes to prosperity? It might help to write this down, so that you have a clearer picture. After you have assessed this, ask yourself if your portrayal of yourself sounds like someone who could experience financial abundance. If the answer is no, then that indicates that a change in perspective is necessary.
Now we have to talk about the path to that necessary change. First of all, let’s dispense with the idea that angels, fairies, unicorns, and what-have-you will bring us money out of the blue. That may be a rare, one-time occurrence, but it’s hardly a change in lifestyle. So we have to get a lot more practical than that.
The first thing that you must do is be willing to see yourself differently. Prosperity is a mindset that is fundamentally positive. If you are harboring any ancient, religious beliefs that prosperity is evil and that God rewards poverty, you will have to be willing to give that up. If you believe that having money is not spiritual, then I recommend that you re-evaluate your definition of spirituality.
Prosperity and abundance are deeply spiritual, because they eliminate lack. They permit you to be happy and creative. They free you to help others, rather than being completely preoccupied with your own survival. Prosperity is primary, whereas poverty is secondary. The definition of poverty is the absence of abundance. However, abundance is not the absence of poverty. Abundance is like light. It stands on its own and doesn’t need poverty in order to exist. But poverty can only be known as the absence of something. This is why it is so painful. It exists as a constant reminder of what you don’t have.
Those who experience prosperity are not sitting around preoccupied with not having poverty. They are likely living in a state of continuous expansion and creative joy. So if you have a negative view of yourself when it comes to the subject of prosperity, you can hopefully see that this view is not conducive to success. Therefore it is time to change your view.
We are so used to defining ourselves according to what has already happened. So if you have felt poor in some way, you will likely use that as evidence for your definition of self. Here comes the hard part. Are you willing to change your definition of self to a more positive, prosperous one even if there is no physical evidence of that now or in your past? If you are not willing to do this, then you are extremely likely to experience more of the same of whatever you have been through so far.
Whatever you believe yourself to be, your subconscious mind will happily provide you with exactly that experience. So if you want to have a different experience, you will have to start with believing something different about yourself. You will have to find ways to convince yourself that you have changed as a person and no longer expect more of the same. You will have to be tenacious and not give up. Eventually, your subconscious mind will absorb your new belief and the transformation will begin. You will start to think differently and then act differently. You will begin to see opportunities that you had previously been blinded to.
There are many ways to embed new beliefs into your subconscious mind. One way is by writing or speaking affirmations that correspond to the new you that you are creating. Another way is to visualize (which means to imagine) yourself living the new life that you plan to create. It is important to get emotionally involved with your new vision. A belief is never really real unless it is backed by emotion.
The next thing that you need to realize is that changing your life for the better, particularly when it comes to prosperity, will take action and it will take effort. You will have to be willing to do things differently. This is why it is so important to change your beliefs about yourself to something more positive that supports expanded abundance. By changing your beliefs, you also change what is important to you. When you change what is important, you will change your behavior to match what is important. So all of these things work together in synergy.
And finally, you can always ask God and your angels to help you with this process. Remember that you are designed to be a co-creator with the universe. You are not meant to do this alone. Your subconscious mind is connected to the super-conscious mind, which is connected to the quantum universe where all things are created. Your divine intelligence knows all of this. All you have to do is be sincerely willing to change, and then have that change physically manifest in your life.
