Did you know that the word “envelop” literally means “to fold in” or “to wrap”?
The word “develop” therefore means to “unfold” or “unwrap.”
YOU are a spiritual being – a part of the Universe – “enveloped” in human form. Which means that to “develop” your prosperity consciousness, all you have to do is allow it to unfold from within!
It’s already there!
You are prosperous because you exist. There is nothing you need to do. All that’s required is a shift in your understanding of who you really are.
Does this mean that money and goodies will rain down on you from the sky?
Well, I can’t promise that of course, but it’s possible, yes.
But what can you do right now … today … to develop your prosperity consciousness? And more important, what differences can you expect to notice in your life?
Here are 3 shifts in your perspective you can make to awaken your prosperity consciousness.
We are so conditioned to focus on the negative, the bad luck and the downright fearful that we’re prone to overlook the fact that most of your life isn’t just working out okay – it’s amazing.
You have food in your belly, don’t you? You can read and write, (you’re reading this aren’t you?) You have access to the most amazing technology the world has ever known.
You could, if you needed to, get practically anywhere on this incredible planet of ours in about a day – and it’s been less than a hundred years since that was even possible! Yet we take it for granted now.
You can go to your high street and in any regular supermarket find more choices of what you can have for dinner tonight than all the kings and queens of history would have had in their entire lifetimes!
I know these observations in themselves don’t actually make you rich, but you need to shift that point of view so that you start to notice not just the abundance of nature, (which is also incredible), but how we humans have made life prosperous for ourselves.
Did it ever occur to you that just about everyone has thoughts of not being good enough?
At the very least that levels the playing field!
But what you’re not taking into consideration is that your uniqueness is what matters! If everybody thought the same thoughts, understood the same facts, liked the same movies and fell in love with the same people, life would be very, very dull!
[Tweet theme=”tweet-box-shadow”]Prosperity Tip: Be A LOT Nicer To Yourself[/Tweet]
There’s nothing wrong with the desire to grow and change and improve yourself in any way you like … unless you’re starting with the idea that you must do it because you’re not okay now!
How can you expect to attract prosperity, opportunities, love or anything else if you believe yourself to be somehow unattractive?
You get back what you put out, so make other people feel good, (and you’ll help to awaken their prosperity consciousness too!)
Most of the time we’re so wrapped up in our own little world that we barely notice other people. And the fact is, most of them are wrapped up in their little worlds too, all feeling they’re not good enough in some way, all noticing what a mess the world is in, instead of shifting their perspective like you’re learning to!
So make it your intention to make their day!
[Tweet theme=”tweet-box-shadow”]Make it your intention to make people’s day! (You’ll feel amazing!)[/Tweet]
Give away smiles, compliments, gratitude and praise. These things cost nothing and take no more time than any other exchange.
The waitress who serves you coffee may have just been dumped by her boyfriend or discovered she’s pregnant or have a mother who’s just been diagnosed with cancer. That’s not your business, but you could appreciate her smile. You could thank her for her attentiveness to your order or for clearing your table so nicely.
Also, if people in stores and other places where you get served are wearing name badges, call them by their name. When the petrol pump (gas station) attendant hands you your change, how difficult would it be to say, “Thank you, John” (if that’s the name on his badge, of course!), rather than that zero eye contact monosyllable he’ll get from most customers today?
Oh, yes. Look him in the eye and smile when you do it too.
If any of those people hadn’t shown up for work, your life would have been a little harder, a tad inconvenienced, so notice them and show you appreciate them.
Why should you do this?
You’ll feel amazing!
I assure you, you will quickly become addicted to all these practices – but especially this last one.
Now, what do you suppose happens to your day, your week, your month and your life when you feel amazing all the time?
Do you imagine more or less people will be attracted to you?
Do you suppose you’ll feel better or worse about the kind of person you are?
And do you imagine you’ll be more or less likely to attract opportunities and prosperity?
I’ll bet you got three out of three on that little quiz. That makes you a hundred percent right!
Feels good, doesn’t it?
Thank you for reading – I appreciate you. And perhaps I might ask, if you’ve found this useful, that you share it – it’s so easy to click all the share buttons now – and then we can all do our part in paying it forward!
[dropcap]M[/dropcap]oney, when you stop to think about it, isn’t real.
It’s just an agreed upon system of tokens for giving goods or services a value. I say my blue widget is worth ten wotsits, you offer eight, we shake hands on nine.
There. I just described how the economy works!
The physical representation of those tokens – as coins, notes, electronic pulses on a plastic card or embedded in a computer chip – is irrelevant.
They all represent value, which is a subjective concept, held only in the collective minds of the beholders.
When people pay for something, they’re paying for what they perceive and agree in their mind, is the value of the thing. A bag of carrots is going to have a very different perceived value from a Van Gogh original oil painting, for example.
However, the fact that you are the perceiver – and also the creator – of value means that you have the power to attract wealth at your fingertips.
The key lies in perceiving yourself as valuable.
Crazy as that sounds, that fact has the power to make you rich because your state of mind is under your control.
I’ll show you 3 powerful ways you can use your mind to attract wealth and abundance in this article, but first I’d better prove what I’m saying. How could money be a state of mind?
Take a moment to reflect on Dickens’ famous creation, Ebenezer Scrooge. Before his Christmas Eve transformation did he have a pile of cash? Yep, but he was living like a pauper. He might as well have had a pile of dead leaves as a pile of cash.
What those three ghosts did was change his state of mind about money, they didn’t make him a penny wealthier!
“Oh yes but …” I hear you cry … “Scrooge actually already had money. I want to attract money and prosperity. I’m not able to change my mind and start buying the biggest, fattest goose for Bob Cratchet’s table.”
True, but the point I want to make is that money is never the end result you want, no matter how much of it you think you’re lacking right now. Scrooge’s money was of no use to him until he began spreading it around. Once he did that he brought a lot of happiness. We’re not told what happened to his money lending business come the New Year, but it’s a fair bet that business got better because people wanted to do business with him.
A similar tale unfolds in the classic movie, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” where the greedy money lender, Potter, finally gets his come-uppance as the townsfolk rally round to help out George Bailey (James Stewart) because George has always been kind and generous.
Yes, I know it’s Hollywood, but those stories have endured because we know in our hearts that there’s a deeper truth in them.
No one is stopping you from spreading kindness and goodwill – even if it’s not Christmas Eve. You can smile and pay compliments for free.
Will that attract money to you? Well, it stands a much better chance of doing so than being greedy or grumpy! Try it!
Oh, that old chestnut! Does that really work?
Well, yes … and no.
Just imagining a heap of dollar bills or five pound notes won’t make money fall from the sky, any more than imagining a blue elephant will cause one to come into existence. Even though your imagination is more than capable of dreaming up elephants of any colour!
The power to attract money – or manifest anything you desire – doesn’t come from visualizing cash. The power is in the emotional state you trigger by what you imagine. And pictures of money aren’t usually too exciting.
However, imagining your hands on the wheel of your brand new Ferrari, (Mercedes, any car of your choice), may fire you up if you like nice cars.
Seeing yourself and perhaps your lover watching the sun go down over Tahiti from the balcony of your luxury cruise liner … might have some impact.
Of course, you’ll choose your own fantasies.
The point is to use your imagination to trigger the emotions you’ll feel as a wealthy person. Money, as I said before, is only a means to an end.
Even if your only goal is to pay off your credit card debt, you’ll still do better imagining how you’d spend your day without that millstone hanging around your neck.
We only ever want results; how we get them is more or less immaterial.
Which brings me to one caveat about visualization.
Don’t make it conditional. If you’re saying to the universe, “It’s the red Ferrari or it doesn’t count,” you’re severely limiting the options. Why would you care about the car, or how the money shows up, as long as you get the result, which will be some kind of improvements in your lifestyle.
Be attached to the emotions; the images are only there to conjure up those emotions.
This is what your imagination is for!
Much has been said about dealing with the limiting and negative beliefs which may – or may not – be lodged in our subconscious mind.
How can we know what’s in there if they’re subconscious?
This is often used as the “excuse” to explain away the apparent lack of the law of attraction delivering our desires.
Thankfully, there is a very simple solution to this problem.
Ask yourself how you came by those beliefs in the first place.
No, I don’t mean you should blame your mother, father, teachers, or any other “accident” of birth.
Let me illustrate my point with a story, which I doubt is true because I’ve heard several versions of it over the years.
A social worker was visiting one of her charges in prison, not for the first time. This lost young man was a repeat offender – petty crimes always committed under the influence of too much alcohol.
“Why do you think you do it?” she asked, desperate to find a way to help him.
“My father drank,” he replied. “He thought the answer to every problem was at the bottom of a bottle. I guess I just followed his example.”
During the conversation the young man mentioned his twin brother. This was the first time she’d heard mention of a twin.
“And does he drink too?” the social worker asked.
Apparently he did not.
After her visit, the social worker made it her business to pay the twin brother a call.
To her surprise, she pulled up at a nicely kept house in a smart neighbourhood. A clean, modern car was parked in the driveway, and when the brother opened the door, apart from his looks, he couldn’t have been more different from the brother she’d come to know so well.
Over a coffee, the twin brother told the social worker that he was teetotal, and had been all his life.
“Why do you think that is?” she enquired.
“My father drank,” came the reply. “He thought the answer to every problem was at the bottom of a bottle. I guess I just decided not to follow his example.”
You’ve arrived at your beliefs by making deductions, putting two and two together and sometimes coming up with seven and a half … a whole bunch of random and often conflicting sources!
Just decide that you’re going to believe that you are worthy of affluence, wealth and financial freedom.
It will feel like a lie at first, but if you injured your wrist and had to wear your watch on the other hand for a week or so, it would feel odd, but it wouldn’t make the watch wrong, would it?
You have far more power than you believe … or allow yourself to believe.
I hope these subconscious mind power techniques have been helpful. Of course, if you truly want to attract money fast, you’d do well to eliminate all money worries and negative thoughts too.

When I was a trainee psychotherapist, I must have asked that question a thousand times.
I asked doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists … anyone I thought might know the answer.
Just why do people seem to cling to painful memories?
The question is VITAL because the past will eat your future unless you know how to move on from it.
Unless you have some mechanism, some skill for letting go of the past, it can devour your future.
Painful or traumatic experiences can hold you to ransom.
It will paralyse you … and maybe you know someone that’s happening to right now.
[Tweet theme=”basic-white”]Why aren’t you letting go of the past?[/Tweet]
Why, for example, would somebody who’d escaped from an abusive relationship, not only keep talking about it decades later, but still avoid relationships like the plague – even though they were desperately lonely?
Or, why would a perfectly intelligent, multi-talented man, who witnessed his father’s business collapse when he was a small child, stubbornly refuse to invest his small fortune in a business of his own more than forty years on?
Instead, he takes one mind-numbing menial job after another, loathing them, but feeling he has no alternative.
Nowadays, I do know the way out of this trap, and I’m going to reveal it to you in just a moment.
But first, let’s understand a bit more about why we cling to the past, even when it’s depriving us of a future, of fun, love and prosperity.
At first glance it seems counter-productive.
Think of a hunter-gatherer living in a traditional tribal culture.
One day he goes out with his companions hunting big game and gets mauled by a lion. He survives, but is he likely to avoid hunting for ever more? People would go hungry!
My psychotherapy tutors told me it was down to one thing: “Fear.”
It seems reasonable – our subconscious is trying to protect us from pain and it’s a survival instinct.
So I was told.
But there’s something wrong with that answer.
Consider my hunter and the lion analogy. The hunter may learn from it and be more careful in future, but it’s unlikely he’d quit hunting.
[Tweet theme=”basic-white”]The hunter who gets mauled by a lion doesn’t quit hunting. [/Tweet]
Besides, the answer isn’t consistent.
There are plenty of people, primitive and modern, who have overcome traumas of all kinds and lived astonishing lives. (Think of Oprah, for example, or Jim Carrey who was homeless at one time.)
What are they doing differently from the ones who hold onto their pain?
It has to be them, doesn’t it? There is no other variable.
It doesn’t matter the person’s age, gender or what the traumatic experience was, so it must be them. And if they can do it, anyone can.
You might think that having lost my mother to cancer when I was nine years old that I’d have had some practice at letting go of someone.
But it didn’t seem to work that way for me. Perhaps because I spent half my childhood motherless or maybe due to other factors, I had no sense of myself as a man by the time my hormones did! I was timid to the point of cowering when it came to asking girls for dates. As a result, I’d end up with the desperate or the wounded ones who would always ending up jilting me.
This was a mixed blessing as you might imagine! I wasn’t in love with any of them, (although I sometimes thought I was), but the serial rejections only served to convince me that I was unloveable and so the cycle continued well into adulthood.
Now, I’m not regaling you with all of this personal history so that you can exercise your Kleenex dabbing skills. I’m merely pointing out that as well as building myself a massive back catalogue of painful memories, I too believed I was stuck in a pattern from which there was no escape.
It was a veritable labyrinth of pain.
The Answer Comes
Eventually, during my training, I attended a course in London where I was taught a powerful technique for rapidly healing painful and traumatic memories. I’ve used it successfully hundreds of times since and I’ve never known it fail … on anything.
(I once helped a colleague who’d had a close shave with a huge truck that could have killed her on her way to work. She was shaking and sobbing until I used the process on her. Twenty minutes later, she was fully functioning at work – as a nurse.
And a gentleman who came to me once needed to make peace with how he and his father were before his father passed away … and he achieved that peace within about half an hour.)
It was doing that course that made the penny drop on the true answer.
It isn’t the fear, because the fear is part of the pain itself. When the memory is let go, the fear leaves along with the rest of the pain. All the emotional elements are neutralised.
No, it’s much, much simpler than that.
The answer is that people hold onto their pain because they don’t believe they have a choice.
The ones who get free know instinctively that they can use their mind differently, or, they’ve been shown that they can, (as I was).
Freedom from a painful past is an incredible gift.
You have more choice and no more fear.
When you know that emotional healing is as possible as physical healing, you befriend life again.
You get more enjoyment, more fun, more love and even more money (because you’re open to opportunities and are more willing to take risks.)
And if you’re stuck with some pain of the past that haunts you and limits your life, now you know there is a choice.To Find Out How To Get All The Inspiring Images On This Post As FREE Wallpaper For Your Computer - CLICK HERE
I created a program to free you – or anyone – who’s stuck with the past eating up their future.
It’s called “The Magic Of Moving On” and of course I’ve included that traumatic memories healing process as an audio.
I even remembered to include a rapid confidence booster too!
This is one of my most powerful – and empowering programs.
I hope it frees you.

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]n ex-nurse once told me a story I’ve never forgotten.
She was still a teenager at the time, barely a few weeks into her shiny new career. She was assisting colleagues as they carefully washed an unconscious man in his eighties.
As she was washing one of his hands, to her astonishment, she felt his limp hand grip hers. His eyes flickered open and their gaze met … just for a moment.
Looking directly into her young eyes, he managed to whisper the words, “What’s it all been for?”
And then he died.
I don’t know about you, but I can think of no worse epitaph than that.
Your dreams and mine are as unique as fingerprints.
For most of us, sadly our dreams get shelved, then they gather dust, wither and all too often, die with us.
We have been convinced – some may say brainwashed – into believing that we are “just too busy” to follow those dreams.
We have bills to pay, kids to get through college, responsibilities to take care of.
You’d be right – we do have those things, but we have dreams too.
Why does it have to be “either/or”?
I’m of the opinion that it can be “both/and” … and I’m not alone.
More and more people are looking at following their dreams and passions and figuring out how they can meet their obligations at the same time.
I knew a couple who loved to travel to the world’s wild places. The guy even wrote travel guides to places as diverse as the Gobi Desert and the Outer Hebrides! When they had a baby, I assumed that would put paid to their wanderings.
But not a bit of it! They equipped themselves with lightweight travel gear – including a cot – so that they could continue having their adventures as a family. I lost touch with them, but that little girl will have had one amazing childhood and an ingrained sense of adventure as she grew up.
What have you ruled out because you believe that one thing is exclusive of something else? Something you’d perhaps love.

Want to be a rock guitarist? What do you imagine is stopping you? (Yes, imagine, because other than death itself, if you’re reading this you still have a chance.)
Want to write a novel, sing in an opera, walk across the USA or see the sunset over the volcanoes of Hawaii?
What are the rocks you’re throwing in the way?
As a result, they’re more fulfilled, more productive, have more fun and are more passionate about life.
Living that way would ensure you’d never utter the last words of that dying old man, wouldn’t it?
Next Saturday, (July 9th), I’m putting on a training to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
