lake superior cove ptI read something this morning that really spoke to me, “As I believe, I gratefully receive.” The reading talked about visualizing what I want to manifest in my life by seeing it already manifested. It takes a leap of faith for me to grasp this concept some days. It’s so easy to slip into the dark corners of lack, limitation and scarcity thinking. The book, In the Flow of Life by Eric Butterworth has been extremely helpful to me in changing my attitude about the “reality of affluence.” Butterworth defines affluence as “the free flow” or “to flow forth.” The dictionary defines affluence as wealth, abundant supply. Society defines affluence as the accumulation of material possessions, cars, houses, money. I prefer Butterworth’s definition of free flow or to flow forth. As I give, so shall I receive. Do I have everything I want? Not today but I do have everything I need and that’s what I focus on. It has to do with the concept of  prosperity consciousness.

In the Flow of Life, Butterworth says “the true prosperity consciousness is consistently open to the flow, and attracts opportunities both to give and receive.” A practice he suggests using is “Opportunity is wherever I am! I am in the flow, and every day I expect new things to happen that will open the way to success. I put my whole self into everything I do and pour myself out as a blessing wherever I go.” For me, it’s all about staying positive, having an open heart and mind, walking in faith and continuing to move in the direction of my dreams.

What about you?  How do you define success? What is your level of job satisfaction? What opportunities are you not taking advantage of? How do you define affluence? What can you do today to be in the flow of your creative process?

    I love the writings of Eric Butterworth! They played a major role in formative early adult years. I’m a firm believer that you get what you focus on. Today I’m going to focus on how good it feels to run (as opposed to oh man, do I have to do this) and how easy it is to put my ecommerce shop together (as opposed to giving in to technical confusion). Will all this happen? Yes! And if I run into any bumps in the road, real or cyber, that’s ok, they’re only bumps.

    Another writer to check out. Yippee! He sounds like a gem. Today I’m going to focus on how lucky I am to be able to be out in the sunshine walking my dog (instead of “I need to be home doing the zillion things there that need doing!”).

    Great article. I like Butterworth’s definition of affluence and I have the same definition myself. It’s so important to remind ourselves of what really matters.

      Thanks Michele. I really resonate with his definition of affluence, to flow forth or free flow. Learning every day, that’s one of my affirmations:)
