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 your life.
