I 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.
