Prosperity consciousness is a way of thinking that gives you more power over what you have in your life. Developing your prosperity consciousness requires a few key things that once you truly understand, can change your life.

To understand the concept, you need to understand the basics of the law of attraction. This universal law basically states that like attracts like. Think of old adages like, “you reap what you sow,” and “birds of a feather flock together.” These all express the law of attraction in a familiar way.

The first step to prosperity is realizing that prosperity isn’t based on chance or luck. (Because if it’s just luck or random chance, then you wouldn’t be able to control it–but you can!) It’s also necessary to realize that there is enough for everyone. There should be no guilt associated with having prosperity because no one has to go without for you to have what you want.

Once you decide that money and prosperity aren’t things you achieve through luck or taking away from others, you decide that they’re things you can have guilt-free. That belief will steer you away from bad decisions automatically because you won’t feel like you have to scramble to get your share before someone else takes it.

There’s no need to fight for it or compete for it since there’s enough for everyone. You really need to focus on that thought and make sure you believe it to develop a prosperity consciousness that will let things flow into your life.

Once you believe it, then you only have to welcome prosperity. Whether you pray, or affirm, or ask the universe at large for the things you want, you must put out the invitation for those things to come into your life, allow yourself to “feel” abundant before you actually are! By doing so, you create openness and acceptance to the abundance and prosperity that you say you desire.
