“The way of abundance is a one-way street. You are either heading for lack, or heading for abundance. The man with a rich consciousness and the man with a poor consciousness are not walking on the same mental street.” — Florence Scovel Shinn

Which street are you walking on? Do you have thoughts of lack or thoughts of plenty; rich thoughts or poor thoughts? What words do you use when talking about your situation, your world, your life?

Our words and thoughts are so much more powerful than we realize. They bear the fruit of our experience in this life, on this physical plane. Words and thoughts of lack and poverty bring us exactly that — lack and poverty. Words and thoughts of plenty and abundance on the other hand, bring us prosperity and richness.

Do you often say things such as, “I can’t afford it” or “Even though I’d really like to have that, I need to save for a rainy day” or “It would be selfish for me to spend money on me when there are so many other things to spend precious money on” or “Only the rich get richer and the poor get poorer”? Do you resent those who are rich and prosperous or do you see them as an example of what is possible for you and others?

Or are you one of the people with a prosperity consciousness who says things like “I deserve it because of who I AM, created in the image and likeness of God the Creator of all that is” or “It is mine by my right consciousness and my Divine birthright” or “I am connected to a golden stream of prosperity that flows to me under grace in perfect ways”?

Do you see the difference?

I am not advocating that you spend frivolously or irresponsibly. What I am saying is to feel prosperous, have thoughts of prosperity and deservingness, and imagine yourself as prosperous. Always choose your words wisely when talking because they are the force behind what you experience in your world. Stay vigilant always of your thoughts and words.

When we are in our superconscious, our Christ consciousness, we understand and know that there is an inexhaustible supply of anything we desire. Unfortunately, most of us lose sight of this Truth and forget about the Universal Laws and Principles that are always working in our lives whether we remember, believe in them, or are aware of them. If we make it a practice to keep this in our awareness, we can consciously tap into these Laws and use them wisely.

Most of us have become so accustomed to “lack” thinking that it can be very difficult to grow into a prosperity consciousness. I can say this from my own experience. It is difficult to build up faith and trust in the belief that there is abundance and plenty when your outer circumstances don’t reveal this. It is too easy to believe that this is just the way it is and it will never change so why bother.

I can tell you, again through my own experience, that once you do have faith and trust in Divine Intelligence, Creative Intelligence (God, Goddess, Spirit) and the lavish supply that is available to you, and all of your thoughts and words reflect this, you will experience abundance in your life. You will see it and feel it everywhere. When you intimately know the Source of that supply you will walk down the street with a rich consciousness heading for abundance.

I encourage you to stay alert and aware of your thoughts and words this week and remember how powerful they really are. They can bring love or fear, lack or plenty into your experience. Which will you choose?
