All About Prosperity Consciousness


The basic truth is, as you think and believe, so you become. Note that I said as you think and believe. For those of you who know the practices of hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming or integrative release therapy, you may recall the fact that behaviors are not created by our thinking, they are created by our beliefs. 


This is a critical distinction. Thinking occurs in the conscious mind. This is the area where calculations are made and thinking that is not necessarily linked to emotional responses occurs. In fact, it is actually quite easy to think without being at all connected to the body or emotions. 

This is why many say they are in a daze when they give in to an addiction. The unconscious and conscious minds aren't connecting in a clear way. If we are in the state of this type of thinking, we often don't feel anything until we are triggered in some way. Triggering occurs when something happens that reminds the unconscious mind of a previous situation. Then the unconscious mind produces a behavioral response which may or may not make sense to the thinking, conscious mind, and yet, does occur. It occurs because of the underlying belief that is deep seated in the unconscious mind. In changing this belief, you can change your consciousness, and your perception of the world around you. This in turn may also change your behavioral responses. This is why people actually behave differently (along with feeling and thinking differently) after hypnotherapy and/or other mind/body sessions. 


In a very direct way, these underlying beliefs manifest your outer world by creating how you perceive the world around you. If you perceive in lack consciousness, what you will see around you will often perpetuate that belief. If you believe you are prosperous, then you look at the world in much different way. In fact, the same situations which you may have encountered when your perceptions were derived from lack consciousness will actually be different for you. 


To digress for a moment, I firmly know and believe that when we are in a space of prosperity, that is what we mirror to others and, even if they don't in that moment see their own prosperity, we change their world by showing them what is possible. This is what I believe Gandhi was referring to when he said, 'We must first be the change we wish to see in the world.' That is an important factor to realize in all areas of your life. If you see others in a negative light, it makes it much more difficult for them and for you to change. 


Back to prosperity consciousness, we know then that it is beliefs that change our worlds, but once I'm living in prosperity consciousness, how does prosperity consciousness create prosperity? 

First, by living in the energy of prosperity consciousness, that is what is attracted back to you. 

Second, taking the actions that one takes when they are in the state of prosperity consciousness, you change your physical world. 


The Energy of Prosperity Consciousness 


Let's start with the first one, living in the energy of prosperity consciousness. From an energy perspective, if you think a certain way that is what you are attracted to so that is what you attract toward you. This occurs because prosperity conscious changes how you hold and interact with the energy in yourself and your world. If you are living from a place of prosperity consciousness, you will be living in an open space of energy. This openness allows new energy (which can take the form of money, new clients, new opportunities, etc.) to flow into your world and through you. It also allows you to recognize if something new is an opportunity. 


If you are living from a space of lack, you lock your energy. The fear traps the energy and where nothing can flow, prosperity is stymied. I've seen people so tight in their energy that someone offers them money and they either don't notice it, believe it's never enough or dismiss it as a fluke. When you are living in a limiting belief system, even when the universe tries to give you a gift, you may not see it. The more you push the gift away, the more you create the world around you to match your limiting beliefs. 


Prosperity Consciousness in Action 


Now prosperity consciousness is not all 'in your head'. You must practice it in your thoughts, words and actions. This means, you must interact with your world from a state of prosperity consciousness.

To begin this process, answer the following question regarding an area of your life where you would like more abundance:


When I am/ have _______________(putting in here the language of what you believe needs to happen for you to be prosperous in this area) I can or will be able to _______________(putting in here the language of what it will be like when you have manifested the prosperity in the way you wish to).


(Other language to play with here could be: When I ______I will ___________.)


The purpose of this is to notice where you are having lack consciousness/ limiting beliefs and also see the often unhealthy connections we are making in our unconscious minds. 


An example for a woman who desires a new home but is feeling stuck in manifesting it could be: When I am rich I can or will be able to move to a place I love.


The way to look at this from a consciousness perspective is to see the limits this person is putting on themselves with this underlying belief.  With this belief, this woman has told herself that she can't enjoy where she is living until she is rich.  Note that this is also saying that where she is currently living isn't rich and she doesn't love it.  


The process taken once a limiting belief is recognized may take many forms.  Personally, I'd begin by gaining a better understanding of what the terms 'rich' and 'a place she loves' mean to this woman.  Perhaps, by understanding her definitions of these, she could find a new way to live rich and bring that feeling of richness into her current home.  Then she could move forward into a new home, if she still desires to do so (as this often changes when we open up our 'stuck' states), while enjoying her daily life as well.  


For example, if this woman found that living in a home that felt both 'rich' and like 'a place she loves' meant being able to have friends over in a space she felt proud of, she might begin by decorating a room in her current space and having a few friends over to share it with her.


One thing see when we work with prosperity consciousness is that we donít live in a black and white reality.  This allows us to enjoy the colors of life we do live in.   



May we all live in the state of prosperity consciousness that brings us together in celebration.
