Bringing Prosperity Into Your Life

First.... my wish for you.

Prosperity doesn't have to mean a million dollars in your bank account.... although that would certainly be nice. But for your cup to always be full.... to never be without. "May you never hunger, and may you never thirst."



Unfortunately many people don't realize it, but they are preventing themselves from being prosperous. But its not their fault, its how they were brought up. When I was little, my family associated rich people with all things negative and made assumptions about them.... rich people were always mean or stuck up, or just plain bad people. Why? Because they had money and we didn't. No one wants to be mean or stuck up, or a bad person. So it was unknowingly drilled into my head that rich was not something I wanted to be.

My family also associated money with lack. Money was associated with bills and debt. Money was something to work for....something that was needed.... but that no matter what, there was never enough.

So there never was.

Being wealthy.... having what you need.... is not a bad thing. Each and every person has the right to take care of themselves and have the means to do so. You can only have what you need if you have money.... and if you have money, you get more of what you need. For yourself, for your family, for everyone you love.

So it goes without saying that in order to have wealth, you need to get rid of the negative thoughts about wealth and wealthy people. Its easier said than done.

Start by first accepting 100% of the responsibility for everything you've attracted in your life so far. This is extremely difficult, but very important. You need to embrace the fact that you are in control of your life before you can attract what you want into it.

Tip: Make it a point daily to think positive thoughts about money. Feel the excitement you feel when you win or receive a large sum of money. Focus on the feeling.... starting out for just a few seconds. Gradually build focus until you can feel that feeling for a minute or more. That is a powerful feeling. Feelings are thoughts directed at the universe. The universe is a genie that has no choice but to deliver on your wish. No matter what is going on, think and believe that you will always have enough money for what you need. Visualize what your life WILL be like with the money you would like to have.

Think of what you want in your life, and write it down. Gather some pictures...from magazines, internet, etc. put them together and focus on each of them. Here's a neat fact.... your subconscious mind does not know the difference between real and imagined events....so when you focus on those pictures, your subconscious mind will actually go about attracting the pictures in your mind into your life. Now can you see how negative thoughts and fears attract what you don't want?

Conquering fear is a huge hurdle, but its part of the process of attracting wealth. Saying an affirmation like, "I am not afraid of having money. I deserve it", daily, will help you conquer your fears about money.

Instead of focusing what you don't have, focus on what you WILL have. Your subconscious mind is like a heat seeking missile... and it will ALWAYS hit the target it is focused on. So if you don't want something to happen....don't think the thought.

Also.... open those bank statements, those credit card bills, etc. right away. Don't put them off. That is part of fear conquering as well.

Every night before you go to sleep, write down 5 things you appreciate about yourself, and 5 things you appreciate about others or situations. As you're doing this FEEL the feelings of gratitude that you have. "Appreciate" when it comes to money, means to grow.... and that applies to anything else. So by focusing your attention on that which you appreciate, the more those things will grow in your life.

Take action on the things that are in alignment with your goals, and trust your instincts. When you act, do so quickly. This is called The Law of Right Action.

Take INSPIRED ACTION. If you want to have money, offer something of value to others. Do you have a skill or a hobby you could offer as a service to others? Share your wealth of knowledge and skill, and it will return to you. If you feel a nudge to do something, do it! Do what you love, and attracting more of what you want and love will seem effortless. You don't have to have it figured all out.... let your path reveal itself along the journey.

Lastly... always DREAM BIG. Why visualize having $10,000 when you could have $100,000 or $1,000,000???? When most people visualize what they need, they try to think "realistically". If the universe is at your command.... why not dream big????

Simply put.... realistic dreamers are a dime a dozen. If you're a realistic dreamer, you have plenty of competition. The universe has got its hands full! So be a be a BIG DREAMER :) It is actually easier for the universe to deliver on BIG DREAMS than it is to deliver on small ones.

So if someone tell you you've got your head in the clouds.... think of it as a compliment :)

If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts.... no worries. RE-FOCUS.

Some Fun Feng Shui Tips

For monetary wealth, you will want to focus on the South East corner of your home.

Get some goldfish. You may notice goldfish in Chinese restaurants, and that's because goldfish are said to bring success to business. Keep your fish in groups of three and preferably a total of nine. If you keep the tanks clean and your fish happy, you may find wealth coming to you unexpectedly. A koi pond in the South East Corner of your garden will also contribute to abundance in your life.

Keep a bamboo plant by your front door. Bamboo is a symbol of good luck. A bamboo plant by your door will attract goodness within, and part of that goodness is financial security. A bamboo plant on your desk at work could bring about a raise or promotion.

Place subtle but substantial light in the South East corner of your home to bring abundance to your life. Overhead lighting is too overpowering.
