2) Visualize The Outcome – Put pictures of financial goals in your mind and view them routinely. The best times for these visualizations are first thing in morning and right before bedtime. And it is also recommended that you add some exercises throughout day as well. As with affirmations, these visualization exercises are a matter of personal preference. We all visualize things in our minds differently depending on our personalities, so you’ll want to experiment with pictures. Here are some things you can do with those internal pictures: try blowing them up in size, make them more colorful, give them noise, give them action, or increase brightness. Keep playing with these attributes until you find ones that excite you. Also, keep in mind that content of these pictures will change over time – in fact, they NEED to change over time because you’re trying picture more prosperity in your life.
3) Be Aware of How You Receive Prosperity – Take inventory of your thoughts and feelings toward way you receive prosperity. For instance, how well do you receive compliments? Do you tend to play them down or do you accept them with grace? If someone offers to pay you for a task you’ve performed, do you accept payment or do you turn it down? If a person tries to give you something, do you accept it? Do you volunteer for tasks that you won’t be paid for? All of these are indicators of your prosperity consciousness. Don’t be concerned about making judgments at this point, simply become more aware of what’s going on inside your mind. If you’re doing affirmations and visualizations, you’ll know what to do when time comes. Middle Eastern mystics say that increasing awareness is all that is needed to gain knowledge.
4) Be Aware of How You Give Prosperity – Spiritual sages claim that in terms of prosperity, universe makes no distinction between giving and receiving. The important thing is maintaining flow of prosperity and allowing it to bless more lives. Suppose you and two other people were in same room and you had a dollar. Let’s say that you buy a pencil from one of them for that dollar who then uses it to purchase a notebook from third person. The third person then turns around and buys a hairbrush from you. You could’ve kept dollar in your pocket, but instead that same dollar has blessed two other people with useful products and is now in your pocket anyway. This is basis of a healthy economy – one in which there’s a healthy flow of products, services, and currencies. It when flow stops that we start to have problems. Incidentally, this is same principal on which tithing to your church or donating a portion of your pay to charity lies. These charitable acts allow people to participate in flow of prosperity and share it with others. There’s an old saying that states “give what you want more of”, so if you want more prosperity in your life, start giving more in return.
In order to build wealth successfully, we need to look inside ourselves first. We’re taught to define and then go after our goals, but it really doesn’t work quite that way. After we define our goals, we then need to concentrate on removing all obstacles that block their path. So rather than going after these financial goals, we simply attract them to us by preparing ourselves to receive them through a strong sense of prosperity consciousness.
In Part 2 of this essay, we’ll talk about how we can manage money to boost our prosperity level.
