Opening Yourself to Prosperity

12/14/20


The universe is infinite, and there is more than enough for everyone. Energetically, when we win, we give others space to win as well. But so many times, we go through the motions of our lives each day in autopilot, doing the same things, thinking the same thoughts (most of them negative), and getting the same results. We aren’t consciously aware of the energy we are putting out and the power our words and actions have over our lives. We hold many limiting beliefs that keep us from getting all of the things we wish to have in our lives. One example of a limiting belief is not feeling worthy of having more than you think you need. If you feel that way, even if the universe were to send you a wonderful gift, you would find a way to block it and focus on what you are lacking instead of what you are gaining, which would in turn attract more of that thing you are lacking into your life. So today we are going to talk about how to shift our mindset to open ourselves up to greater prosperity and abundance, and break through those prosperity blockers in our minds. In my group hypnotherapy program, The Clarity Collective, I have an entire unit that includes a guided hypnotherapy session and also a coaching session around overcoming money mindset blocks, and opening your mind to prosperity. Here are seven tips to help you do this in your own life: 

  1. Give yourself grace with I am affirming statements:

We are all on a continuous journey of growth. Affirming statements starting with the words “I am” give your brain a message that you are becoming that person you want to be, and it will work to help make that happen. Every situation is a chance to learn, grow and become better, so don't beat yourself up for not being perfect. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. If you say, “I’m getting better about not spending all my money”, what gets sent out into the universe is that you spend all the money that you have whenever it comes your way. But when you say, “I am becoming better and better at money management each and every day to make room for more,” you are setting your intention that you are constantly learning, growing and improving, and that you are open and able to handle the abundance that is coming your way. 

  1. Give yourself the gift of gratitude: 

Gratitude changes our brain and improves our mental and physical health. Develop the habit of being mindful and appreciative of all the good things in your life, instead of focusing on the negatives. Start your day by journaling 3 things that you are grateful for in your life, and then end it by giving thanks to 3 things that happened in your day. Use those I am affirming statements here as well, and say “I am grateful for…”  Especially right now, so many people are focusing on what isn’t the same as years past, and what they don’t get to do instead of what they DO get to do, and what is possible for them. It’s important not to fall into that trap. 

  1. Tap Into Your Inner Wisdom: Learn to practice mindfulness and take the time each day to be still and reflect on your experiences and what you can learn from them. Search within yourself for answers, and increase your awareness of your feelings and thoughts. If you have a hard time quieting your mind, a wonderful breathing exercise is to inhale for a count of 4, hold your breath for a count of 7, and exhale for a count of 8. Not only is this deeply relaxing and great for your lung health, it also will quiet your mind and allow you to focus. So much of the time we are worried or anxious about either the future or the past, and we fail to experience the present fully. Taking a moment to breath, and repeat that exercise 3-5 times can help center you, so that you can shift your mindset back into the positive whenever you feel yourself slipping back into negativity. 

  1. Get clear on your vision: Something I focus very heavily with my clients on is creating their vision for the future. Get as detailed as possible about who you are becoming and what your future self will be like. How does she carry herself, what does she wear, where does she live, who does she surround herself with, and what kind of impact does she make on the world? What do others say about her and how does she feel? Knowing all of these very specific details about who you are becoming will give your mind, and the universe, a clear picture of what you are working towards, so that they can start making that happen. 

  1. Guard your energy: Our energy is like batteries. We only have so much energy to give, and then it needs to be replenished and recharged. Be very intentional with your time and energy, and protect it. In this age of modern technology, we spend time not just with people in person, but also online. We follow certain public figures, we tune into certain podcasts and new outlets, and we video chat with friends, family and colleagues. To see who and what your biggest influencers are in your life, list the 10 people or sources you spend the most time with. Write a plus, minus, or equal sign next to them based on how you feel about yourself, your situation, and the world around you after you have spent time with them. Based on the outcome, focus your time on the ones that are positive, and set clear boundaries and limit interactions with the negative ones. Realizing who and what is taking up your time and energy can be very eye opening. 

  1. Don’t play the comparison game: When you become so focused on others’ prosperity that you start experiencing negative emotions such as resentment and jealousy, you block your own prosperity. Always remember that the universe is limitless in abundance and there is more than enough for everyone. If someone else has it, so can you. So by opening yourself up to prosperity by having an abundance mentality, you release all comparisons and begin to focus on thriving rather than just surviving. And when you are thriving, you are so focused on your own success that you don’t have time to do anything but cheer others on around you. You’re surrounding yourself with like minded individuals who are all going that same direction, and lifting one another up rather than trying to keep eachother down. When you focus on your own vision for your future, everything else falls away. 

  1. Be open to receive: Reach out for the support that you need in order to gain the clarity and confidence to take action and create the vision you have for your life and the world around you. If you feel stuck, get the help you need to release that block and move forward. It can be challenging to see past our own blocks, so finding someone who can see things from an outside perspective, or help support you in doing so, can be pivotal to getting, and remaining open energetically to prosperity.

You are truly in the driver’s seat when it comes to your journey. Keep in mind that there is no end point, no destination, because we are all continuously learning, growing and in the process of becoming better. By doing so, you will keep yourself open to prosperity by learning from all of your experiences, and training your brain and communicating to the universe that you are ready for more. I wish you all the best on your path!
