How to have Prosperity blossom in our lives:
Step # 1: Keep it Simple – Choose one simple saying that encompasses where you want to be – look completely past all of the steps, perceived obstacles, fears or even goals. Imagine the flower – not the growth.
“I am financially FREE to WRITE and TRAVEL.” This is my FLOWER: What IT is I want to accomplish.
Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer and many writers and healers today believe that you must focus on what you want and then allow the universe to bring it in whatever way or manner it chooses. As Louise Hay says, you plant seeds in a garden in order to have the flower, but you do not go out two days later and dig up the seeds to see if the flower is growing. You simply trust that you planted the seed and you imagine the flower in its existence. You looked at the seed packet, decided on the flower you wanted to blossom. You bought it, brought it home, planted it and the only nurturing you have to do is to water it – which in essence is simply repeating your ONE simple mantra every day as much as you can. Repeating it as many times as you can is tending to your flower’s growth. Nature will take care of the rest.
Step # 2: Envisioning the Flower – You can imagine all of the stages of its growth but most of us like to simply focus on the ultimate creation and its beauty. Do this with what it is you want. Imagine the flower in all its bloom – imagine your desire in all its bloom. For me it encompasses me sitting in my Adirondack chair next to a man I love on my beautiful deck that leads from our waterfront home out to the lake on which we live for part of the year. The other vision is sitting on a boat in the Caribbean doing the exact same thing for the other six months, but I include myself with my laptop writing my next novel.
Step # 3: Appreciating the Flower – probably the most important step in the process of manifesting is gratitude – for the things we already have – we are given more when we appreciate what we have – and to appreciate what IT is that we want AS IF we already have it.
“Thank you for a life of financial freedom to write and travel and enjoy my home on the water and my boat in the Caribbean and the wonderful love I have in my life!”
Step # 4: In the Meantime – between-the-seed-and-the-flower time. In the meantime, while we are envisioning the flower we’ve planted, we go along tending to the rest of the garden. We do not neglect the rest of it for this one flower. In fact, tending and weeding the garden will keep the weeds from suffocating our growing flower. Be sure to tend to the things you need to – pay your bills, make right your wrongs, forgive people, don’t judge, help to make others’ lives better. And be sure to weed things from your life – bad habits, negative friends or acquaintances, anything that brings negative energy into your life.
Step # 5: Rejoice in the bud – when the flower first begins to poke its way through the soil and manifest itself in the physically visible realm to you – rejoice. If you want abundance in your life and you are given a five dollar gift certificate or find a penny on the street, rejoice. If you want love and you are asked out on a date, rejoice. If you want a job and someone offers you a chance to make money – even if its something you may not like, rejoice. If you want new friendships and a stranger speaks to you on the street, rejoice. All of these are the tiny buds that are coming to the surface. We do not cut off the bud just because it isn’t yet the flower – nor do we curse at it and tell it, it’s not enough! Rejoice in the small things and greater things will be given unto you!
Step # 6:
Obstacles that can get in the way of us manifesting the things we desire most in life.
In reality, only ourselves and our self-criticism and limited thoughts and beliefs can get in the way of us manifesting the things we desire. We need to immediately stop criticizing ourselves. Next we need to begin to re-program our minds to think positively and lovingly towards ourselves. Without this step, the other five are moot.
