One can never create prosperity by talking or thinking about a perceived lack of money. This is a misuse of creativity and simply cannot bring abundance. Dwelling on lack of any kind only creates more lack. Poverty thinking brings more poverty. Whereas gratitude thinking brings abundance and prosperity. This is Spiritual Law at work in our lives!
I work with clients each and every day on shifting their beliefs about finances and thank goodness I’ve had some great teachers along the way as well, many of whom continue to remind me of my power to create abundance. Pretty regularly, I hear people state a few negative affirmations and attitudes that are guaranteed to keep prosperity beyond reach. They are, “I never seem to have enough money!” or “I don’t have the money to do that!” Some other unproductive affirmations are: “Money goes out faster than it comes in.” or “There’s always something breaking down, I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop!” This is poverty consciousness thinking at its finest. The Universe can only respond to what you believe about yourself and your life!
Sometimes people think that their financial problems will be solved by closing that one “perfect” deal, landing THE gig with the ultimate payoff, inheriting money from a long-lost relative, or winning the lottery. Sure, you can fantasize about such things, and even buy an occasional lottery ticket for fun, but the goal is not to put a lot of attention on acquiring money in this way. From my perspective, this falls in line with scarcity (lack and limitation) thinking, or poverty thinking, and chances are it won’t bring lasting good into your life. When it comes to winning the lottery, winning large sums of money seldom brings positive changes into anyone’s life. In fact, research shows that within two years, most lottery winners have lost or given away almost all of their money, have nothing to show for it, and are often worse off financially than before. The challenge is, when money is acquired in this way, it rarely solves any problems. Why? Because it doesn’t involve changing your consciousness. In effect, you’re saying to the Universe: “I don’t deserve to have good consistently in my life, except by a fluke chance or a big payoff.”
The overall goal is to shift your consciousness, your thinking and your relationship with the energy called money, then allow the abundance of the Universe to flow through your experience. You would then be able to receive and allow the experiences and material things you think getting the big payoff could bring you. And you’d more likely be able to embrace them, for they would be yours by right of consciousness. Examine whatever negative thoughts you have about money, and then decide to release them and let them go. They probably haven’t served you well in the past and will not serve you well in the future.
Affirming success, wholeness, prosperity, and abundance, then declaring, deserving, and allowing are the steps to demonstrating riches far greater that you could ever imagine. This falls into alignment with my mantra, “when what I say, think, feel and do are congruent, I am in alignment with my Authentic self.”
Another thing that can keep you from prospering is being dishonest. Whatever you give out comes back to you. Always!!! If you take from Life, then Life will take from you. It’s that simple. You may feel that you don’t TAKE from life, but are you paying attention to how you are acquiring certain things in life? Are you a person who TAKES time from others or robs others of respect or perhaps steals relationships in some way? All of these count and are a way of saying to the Universe: “I don’t really deserve the good in life. I have to sneak it or take it.”
Simply become aware of the thoughts and beliefs that may be blocking the flow of money in your life. Then change those thoughts and beliefs and begin to create new, abundant thinking. Even if no one else in your family has done this, you can open your mind to the concept of money flowing into your life.
I recently attended an event where the keynote speaker shared an incredible poem with us written by Ralph Waldo Emerson. “What is Success? To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critic and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether be a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; This is to have succeeded.”
For a long time, I’ve believed that business is a place where we bless and prosper each other. I’ve never really understood the concept of cutthroat business, where you try to cheat, compete, and pull a slick one over on another person. That doesn’t sound like a very joyous way to live and it sounds far from peaceful. After finding out that the building where my office has been located for several years, was being sold in February, I went on a search for the right and perfect space to relocate. I never once questioned that a location would reveal itself. Boy did they, and I visited over a half-dozen amazing properties. After some intention setting on January 1st, I joined forces with an incredible group of teachers, healing arts practitioners, speakers, and coaches and decided to rent a suite of 6 offices, 5 miles from my current office space, under the umbrella of my business, Remember Your Truth, LLC. To say that I am excited is an understatement! I feel that this is a precursor to a larger vision of creating a wellness and retreat center. I know that if I can dream it and elevate my consciousness to the vibration of it, I can create it. After all, I am constantly being reminded (and reminding others) that we can create anything we want!
We live in a world of abundance and there’s so much abundance available to each and every one of us in this world. All that is needed is to recognize that fact, embrace our prosperity consciousness, and become willing share the wealth with others in life-giving ways. Life will listen and respond to us with great success and prosperity.
Affirmation: “I am open and receptive to all the good and abundance in the Universe. I am a magnet for money. I think big and I allow myself to accept even more. I have unlimited choices knowing that opportunities are everywhere. I truly believe that we are here to bless and prosper each other and I reflect that belief in my daily interactions with others. I support others in becoming prosperous and in turn, life supports me in wondrous ways. I deserve the best and I accept the best right here and right now. I release all resistance to money and I now allow it to joyously flow into my life. Thank you, Life. – And so it is!”
