take a moment to reflect on this thoughtful meditation on prosperity by energy healer Benson Simmonds. According to this highly intuitive author and wellness pro, prosperity is about more than just abundance, it’s about learning to grow your unique contribution to the world…
We all want prosperity. Being prosperous and abundant is actually our divine natural state of being. Okay, I can hear you thinking, “Oh, yeah, tell that to my bank account or my credit-card debt balance, or to my student loan!” The truth is that most of us have forgotten that the key to prosperity is to regain clarity as to what your purpose is on Earth. Of course you want financial security and the money to live a comfortable abundant life. When we ask for prosperity, we usually make it all about us. I want money. I want my business to be hugely successful, etc. But stop and ask yourself why? The first principle to remember is:
Prosperity is about contribution. Contribution is the key to being happy and abundant. So ask yourself: What do I want to contribute to others? What are the qualities the divine gave me and how can I joyously share them with the world? When you want to generate more prosperity, don’t think, “Oh no, I need clients or I won’t be able to pay my bills.” Ask yourself, “How can I contribute my skills, my services to more people who will benefit from them, who need them?” Don’t think about taking over more market share, focus on how to share with more people locally and all over the world.
Ask yourself how you will inspire others. For example, as an energy healer, my goal is to inspire my clients to love themselves and others and awaken the power of their soul. Other examples could be to inspire others to lighten up, to inspire others to love and empower themselves, to inspire others to love and heal themselves and their relationships, to inspire others to celebrate their inner and outer beauty, or to inspire others to love and take care of themselves and their health, nutrition, etc. Once you know what you want to contribute and why (how you can inspire others), then you align yourself with the divine and open the flow to true ongoing abundance. You then recognize who your most important business partner is.
Your most important business partner (and investor) is the divine! Once you acknowledge that, you will begin to attract more prosperity than ever. When you make the divine your business partner and focus on what you can contribute and how you can inspire others, you open the gates to prosperity. You also realize that it’s the divine and your thoughts that bring you clients, business opportunities, etc. When you think this way, you can start to take the pressure off and realize that no one person, group, deal, etc. can help your business and provide you with more money. They don’t have the power to help your business grow. They are agents of the divine sent to help you contribute your unique skills and products to others. If one deal falls through, know that the divine is already sending you a better one. Always walk into any business meeting with a clear knowledge of what you have to contribute and why.
Think big! The divine does, so can you! If you are focused on contribution, then you naturally want to share your ideas, yourself, your services and/or products with more people. When you focus on contributing more, you think big! You align with the divine and make space for new innovative ideas to flow, to contribute with huge new numbers of people and yes… you can have more fun at the same time.
Ask love-based empowering questions to attract more prosperity. At any given time, we are all asking questions. Usually when trying to be more prosperous, we ask fear-based questions such as: Why aren’t I getting more clients? What’s wrong with me? How am I ever going to pay the mounting bills? These are all fear-based questions and your brain will unfortunately give you answers that will keep you in fear and poverty consciousness. Instead try some love based questions like: Why am I attracting more great clients every day? Why am I joyously inspiring more and more people to love and (fill in your specifics here) others? Why am I attracting more abundance than ever before?
Prosperity flows when you choose to joyously contribute to others, doing what you love for the sake of the divine. By using the five keys, you will make more money, have more fun and inspire more people than ever before.
