Is it possible shift to a prosperity consciousness when the media reports there is a state of financial crisis? Absolutely! Midtown Miami has done just that by saying NO to a new Wal-Mart store in its backyard. A few months ago residents of Miami’s very progressive Midtown neighborhood changed the way it should be classified demographically. The residents voiced that a Wal-Mart would lower the standard of living in the area and obviously retailers have agreed. A new Cartier store has opened in the area and more luxury stores are on the way. Prior to this, buildings in the area were on the verge of bankruptcy.
This is a great example of how to increase abundance, by say no to what you do not want to see happen. Make room for a shift and believe it can happen. This can be accomplished individually by following a few tips. Begin by turning off the outer chatter. It is possible to increase abundance by simply limiting the intake of outside influences(noises) which affirm lack and limitation, and by becoming aware of who and what is listened too, thereby activating the shift into prosperity consciousness. The mind is like a computer and whatever is input is committed to memory. Dismiss the wrong thought as heresy and focus on the good.
If accustomed to watching the news and television it will take some practice to create prosperity consciousness. Be mindful of what is fed into the mind and be aware it is possible to filter what is and what is not true. Like a different type of food the body consumes may determine a certain level of health benefit, thoughts fed into the mind can determine certain outcomes. Create a positive outcome by thinking prosperous thoughts. This theory has been proven scientifically and in The Greatest Secret, Earl Nightingale states, “Throughout history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers, and prophets, have disagreed with one another on many different things. It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement- the key to success and the key to failure is this: We Become What We Think About.”
The practice of mindfulness requires attentive listening skills. This means developing the skill of being in the moment and listening to the details. This can prove to be difficult while multitasking. Begin to set aside a period of time to actively practice listening. This can be done at anytime. Be grateful for what is present, all of it. It may be surprising to re-discover the many facets of information which is being fed into the mind at all times. By observing what is being heard the layers of conditioning become more apparent. Perhaps the chirping of birds and the beautiful sounds of nature has taken a backseat to the incessant chatter of self talk or an outside commentator.
Pay attention to the self talk and notice weather it is positive, or is it negative?
By beginning the process of actively listening, the voice of God becomes clearer. This is the time to be aware. Many times the messages are subliminal and even the persons speaking them may not recognize the importance of what they are saying, and the impact those messages may have on race and/or individual consciousness. If living in Midtown Miami and feeling threatened by Cartier, Target is down the street, go out and meet the neighbors, they are prosperous! sometimes prosperity can creep up and BAM it is here!lol
