Get Yourself in the Prosperity Flow

Part One of a series of writings that I am titling:  How Life Works 101.  This one is focused on Prosperity Thinking

One of the best ways to get yourself in the flow is to make an internal switch when you feel the worry about money coming on.  My teacher, Yogi Bhajan, used to say “worrying is praying for something you don’t want.”  And what he meant by that is this:  Bless the thoughts and feelings that feel like worry and concern–because they are clarifying and bringing to your attention what you don’t want.  Then “pivot”–this means you say to yourself, “I know what I don’t want, thank you very much–now let me turn my attention to what I DO want. I want to know that the Universe is taking care of me, and bringing all good things—prosperity, love, enlightenment–to me.”

Then act as if that is true and it will put you in the flow so it will be true.

In yoga there is a name for this ability to watch where your mind is going, and then bring it back to where you want it to go—it is called Pratyahara, and it is one of the eight limbs of Yoga.

This piece of How Life Works 101 is also one a taste of a course I teach called Happily Ever Now, an online webinar, as well as an in-person course on my schedule.  And…You got it for free!  See—your prosperity is already working!

    Hi Shakta, Happy New Year and thank you so much for posting this. Perfect timing for me to read right now. I would love to catch up with you one day. Will attend a course or reach you somehow. Wishing you lots of love, happiness, peace and laughter with the new year.

    Happily Ever Now is one of those, “DO NOT MISS” courses. When I attended this course I told Shakta that I felt as if it was a pre-requisite to entering the physical world. this course helps you learn how to navigate the physical side of you so that the spiritual side can be heard. Another thing that Yogi Bhajan said was, “happiness is our birthright.” This course, helps you to remember that.
    Shakta, thank you for helping us ALL get in the flow.
