Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours

by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.

5 Key Ways to Attract Abundance & Prosperity
By: Julie Plenty
When you hear the words "abundance" and "prosperity", what
immediately comes to mind? Is it money, fulfilling
relationships, a lovely house to live in, peace of mind, a
career/vocation that expresses your gifts? It may be all or
none of those things. It may mean something else to you.
But if you want to attract more prosperity and abundance
into your life, no matter how you define them, then this
article outlines 5 key ways to do so.
1. Understand Attraction Law
This is better known as the Law of Attraction, as defined by
Abraham Hicks, states that "you attract whatever you give
your attention and energy to, whether wanted or unwanted".
So, if you're curious about what you're putting out there,
look at what you are attracting, the visible results in your
life. Knowing about and working with the Law of
Attraction will help you in manifesting, creating and
attracting more abundance and prosperity in your life. Once
you understand it, there's no turning back.
2. You get what you focus on
One of the key concepts in the Law of Attraction is that you
get what you focus on, whether that be money, relationships,
employment etc). So when you focus on having less, that is
the experience you create for yourself. Saying that "I hate
my job" will just draw even more attention to the aspects of
the job that you don't like. Even if you look for another
job, it'll be with that negative energy.
Just wanting something isn't enough, because you will still
continue to think about what you don't have. Always
focusing on what you lack means that you don't see the
present and future opportunities, or begin to know or
realize your true desires. You're getting in your own way!
3. Clear your head
...........to allow you to focus more effectively. Our minds
are full of "stuff"; old, tired and limiting beliefs, which
don't reflect who we are now, or who we want to become. Set
aside quiet time for yourself on a regular basis to get real
clear about what you really want to attract in your life.
Use this opportunity to ask yourself questions.
Ask yourself: "how can I create more prosperity and
abundance in my life?". Once your head is clear, you will
allow the answers to go in. But making this quiet time on a
regular basis is essential. Meditation is a great way to
start clearing the mind.
4. Appreciate life's abundance
Appreciating life's abundance is another way to opening
yourself up to accept more abundance and prosperity in your
life. When you fully appreciate what you have in your life,
the Universe has a way of giving you more. So start keeping
a gratitude journal and at the end of each day, write down
everything that you are thankful for and appreciate in your
life. So that way you'll change your energy and vibration
and become more internally aligned with what you want to
create in your life.
5. Use prosperity affirmations
As you write your gratitude journal, it is also an
opportunity to write down prosperity affirmations as well.
Affirmations are statements of acceptance that you use
to manifest your destiny or what you want to create in your
life. They are powerful, positive thoughts and words sent
out to the universe.
If you want to use affirmations to
create positive changes in your life, then you must first
BELIEVE that this is possible. It shouldn’t be a half
hearted “well, I’ll give this a go and see what happens”.
To make affirmations more effective, put as much positive
energy in writing and saying them as possible. Visualize
what you want to create. how you'll be and let this
inform your prosperity affirmations.
When you cease operating from a position of lack, you start
to create the fertile conditions to make more informed (and
often intuitively correct) decisions, spot greater
opportunities and attract more abundance and prosperity into
