I am passionate about the topic of prosperity. I do my best to give it definitions that contain real meaning for people. So often our external reality tells us what our prosperity should be or look like. It diminishes us rather than supports us. When we focus on external definitions, we disconnect from our own wisdom and instinct about what rocks our world. We aspire to “prosperity” that exists outside of us. Because of this silent but life numbing pattern, much of my work centers around helping people connect, reconnect and stay connected to their truth.
The fact of the matter is that it’s not easy to stay connected to our truth in the climate that exists on planet Earth. With practice we learn how to recognize our trigger points more easily and the external factors that push on us. We begin to regularly experience the benefits of a centered life. We are in a fluid universe that is alive and always changing. It is ever important to choose which form of consciousness (essence of ego) you are going to allow to shape your perspective. Perspective is the blueprint of prosperity. The game on the planet is managing your perspective.
I consider myself an expert at managing the challenges that occur in the human experience. I have had a lot of on the job training. I won’t speak for you but I know that when I need help I want to get it from someone who has “been there done that.” I want someone who has lived it. I have lived it in just about every way known to modern man. What I know to be true is that whether the concern is financial, romantic, health, job, or residence, the solution to what ails you is always found on the inside in your own heart. We find our answers under the folds of a wound that has been covered up. We feel our answers in the fear that causes us to contract and worry. We know our answers are close when we are confused. These are the ripest environments for expansion. This is where we cultivate an ability to receive. There is an art to being able to receive.
I see many people with beautiful smiles, beautiful hearts, and generous spirits who give and give in the world. These very people return to their home at night to become contracted, frustrated and worried. They cannot cut themselves a break. They judge themselves relentlessly unable to see the value in their life experiences. It is easy to give to others. It is not easy to give to ourselves We feel guilty for giving to ourselves. We feel when we are not “doing” we are not worthy. When we give it makes us a “good” person. It doesn’t. We were born good. We don’t earn it, we are it. We have to become aware of our innate goodness. That’s how we get it.
We fail to recognize that making space for ourselves is a gift. Taking time to be rather than do is a gift. We don’t recognize that choosing our thoughts carefully is a powerful gift. We are part of a collective consciousness. Everything we think and do ripples through consciousness. When we give in integrity to ourselves, we contribute in integrity to consciousness. When we give to have people say we are “good” we perpetuate the myth of external validation.
2010 and 2011 have been challenging years for everyone. Although we are not out of the woods, there are some rather benevolent influences coming into our experience right away. This will be good news for President Obama. He needs some good news. Below, let me share with you some tell tale signs that the tide is turning in your favor.
1. You’re lost. You don’t know what to do.
You’ve tried everything you know and nothing is working. This means you are at the end of a cycle, and the only thing that can occur is a new cycle.
2. You’ve changed inside. You know you can’t go back to the way it was.
When you have truly shifted your perspective, the external can’t help but respond. As Dr. Wayne Dyer says “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
3. Even if you’re alone, you know you are never alone.
A knowing that there is no us, no them, only the one shows that you now trust yourself. From trust flows prosperity, whatever prosperity means to you.
4. People show up for you.
As we do the work of shifting our perspective/vibration, our external environment shifts to support us. Without asking, you will find people show up to meet your needs and help you.
5. You’ve stopped worrying.
When you value your peace of mind more than your investment in what may or may not happen worry stops. When that happens only benevolence can flow in your life.
