Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have all the luck? It is not a matter of luck. It is a matter of applying spiritual principles to your life. Yet many people don't even know that's what they're doing. To them, prosperity just comes naturally.

Prosperity doesn't just refer to financial abundance. It applies to abundance in all areas of your life. This can include loving relationships, rewarding jobs, good health, in addition to money. Blessings will flow your way when you appreciate what already is. That will attract more of what you are seeking.

This has been the case with me. It is an example of faith. Instead of focusing on what I don't have or what displeases me, I shift my focus. This may be easier said than done, but it works. Gratitude is a good starting place, but truly appreciating what is present in your life is the pathway to prosperity.

As Esther Hicks would say, it all begins at a feeling good level. When you feel “good,” goodness naturally flows to you. That is why it is paramount not to let anything take you from experiencing consistent moments of joy.

Okay. Here is the normal starting point. You may experience a certain lack of abundance and that will normally make you want what you don't have. From that point, as Esther would say, you shoot off a rocket of desire. The thing is that you don't want to stay stuck in the problem. That will only attract more of what you don't want in your life.

You must necessarily accept that whatever is manifesting at present is for your best. Focus on being grateful and then allow yourself to feel deep appreciation for your blessings. You may not think you are blessed or that you are worthy. Don't stay stuck there. Instead, think of everything in your life that is good.

Without good health, you would have no quality of life. Hopefully you have that form of abundance present in your life. Use that as a starting point. Do you have shelter? Do you have adequate food? These are blessings many of us might take for granted. Allow yourself to feel that appreciation flow into your being. Continue to focus on whatever small or great blessings you may already possess. You will be amazed to realize how prosperous you already are. That is a wonderful starting point.

Shift your focus from anything that is negative. If you don't do so, you will attract more things about which will make you feel “bad.” Focus on that pathway to joy. If you can't feel it now, begin to climb the ladder to the next best feeling that will lead you higher and higher. Eventually, you will reach the place of joy.

Then be sure to practice awareness of anything that might take you from that place. Do not allow it. Surround yourself with positive people, places, and things that will assist you in feeling that joy from within.

Joy doesn't come from anything outside yourself. You can appreciate something like a beautiful sunset, but that is not what is making you happy. What is doing that is that you are connecting with your inner sense of wonder.

God, or what Esther would call Source, only wants the best for you. It is only you that can block yourself from experiencing prosperity. Practice affirmations. I am worthy of love. I enjoy and deserve to make money. I deserve a good job. I enjoy using my talents. I am a creative expression of the divine.

These are just some examples of affirmations. It's more important that you create your own. Practice them whether you believe them or not. Just try to believe. That is a good starting point. The more you practice affirmations, the closer you will come to believing them. Practice makes perfect. You are already perfect whether or not you realize you are. Prosperity is your birthright and it will be yours if but you only believe.
