“If you think you are poor, you are poor because you do not communicate with your soul—the source of prosperity, the source of reality.” Yogi Bhajan 7/25/1989
Most people believe that prosperity means having a good secure paying job and the freedom to do and get whatever you want when you want it. This is a very limiting view of the true nature of prosperity. This is the belief that the job and the money are the source of your prosperity.
You can see how this belief can get you into spiritual trouble because it is not in truth. When we give our power over to a boss that we perceive as holding the purse strings, or compromise our spiritual integrity because we need money to pay the rent and buy food, we act small and limited.
As soon as you feel small and limited you can rest assured you are with your ego and creating karma with others. The ego’s slogan is, “Enough is never enough.” There is never enough money, never enough time, never enough security, never enough (fill in the blank). This keeps us in the endless loop of poverty consciousness and attached to a mind that is focused on what is lacking in our lives.
The mind expands whatever it focuses upon and guess what this kind of thinking creates? It keeps our fear and anxiety big and our radiance small. When your radiance is small, you feel compelled through the ego to hustle and hassle to get your basic needs met.
How do we move out of this poverty consciousness? If you want the experience of prosperity, you must stop chasing the externals and go to the source. Chasing after money is like chasing shadows on the wall—it’s not real in the sense that it won’t give you what you really want, which is the freedom to be yourself. The freedom to express your Soul in this lifetime; the freedom to contribute to the world with your unique gifts—this is what we are all really seeking in prosperity.
If you are feeling poor then go to the source where all forms arise—to the formless which is GOD. Energetically, money is a form that comes from the formless. The formless is where GOD’s ATM lives and it never closes or runs out of what you need to fulfill your Soul’s destiny. Your Soul is the source of everything.
Everything is upside down in the Aquarian Age. It is no longer, get the job and then the money. It is increase the radiance of your Soul, and then the money and job come to you. When you are in communication with your Soul, you see the truth the ancients have been telling us for ages—that the Universe is abundant and always giving to us.
It is impossible to see this truth when you are in the limited ego. The best thing you can do in the Aquarian Age is to cultivate a relationship with your Soul. You do this by meditation, which is listening to your Soul, and prayer, which is speaking to your Soul.
Prayer is not a tool to be used by the ego to get more money. It would be pretty scary if we attracted all the things our ego wanted. Prayer is a deep surrender to the knowingness that we have what we need in each and every moment because we are have access to the Source of all.
And like every other living creatures on the planet we humans are being taken care of by the Divine. To be truly poor is to be poor in Spirit. Today let your prayer be, “Show me so that I may know the abundance that is all around me.”
