Each of us in this world fits in one mindset or the other. If we focus on the scarce things in life—on what we don’t have— we see think and feel and react in a poverty consciousness mode. If, on the other hand, we notice the abundance in life more, if we concentrate on what we appreciate already having, doing, being, our perspective becomes one of prosperity consciousness.
How to we get to that place? By examining your thoughts around scarcity (scarcity around love, money, time, etc.). Doing this allows you to upgrade to thoughts and feelings of abundance. Sound simple? It is, but you must attend to it regularly, until it becomes automatic, until your new habitual way of thinking is to appreciate the abundance in all areas of your life.
Why is this so important?
Hundreds of scientific and medical studies support the fact that our thoughts direct our emotions. Our emotions are electro-magnetic-based energy. So the kind of energy we constantly send out of our body magnetizes—or attracts— more of that same kind of energy.
Take this example: If I’m thinking, “I can’t afford that,” my body tenses up, my electro-magnetic field alters from my chemical reactions produced by those emotions, and I send out an attraction to “not enough money.” I then magnetize or attract situations that are out of my price range. In other words, the energy you send out matches up with energy like it. These fascinating ideas are the subject of a book I am writing right now.
If you’ve ever created a vision board, or heard of picturing what you want in your mind, those are also tools to get your magnetic attractors sending out messages about what you desire. To put it simple, think positive; feel good; focus on what you desire (peace, love, money, time, freedom, opportunity, etc.). The more you focus, feel and imagine those desires, the more power your magnetic energy has to attract those desires to you.
Prosperity Consciousness Brings Abundance In All Areas
As you focus your thoughts focused on what you want, you will see improvements in all areas of your life. For example, you may be focused on attracting more money by continuously thinking about the money you are grateful for— or the abundance in supplies you already have.
When you focus positively on attracting more money, you are bound to feel better in more and more areas of your life. You may notice that you’re inspired to clean out a closet suddenly, or to finish up that nagging project, bake sweets for the neighbors, send someone a thank-you card, pick flowers from your garden, or give your spouse or child an extra kiss.
So these positive thoughts in one area almost always lead to positive thoughts and emotions in all other areas of your life. Affirm your way to your desired life. Love yourself enough to do this. What about you? Have you found that focusing on gratitude and abundance, brings more abundance to you?
