Celebrate You! Daily Quote:
“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.”
~ Arthur Rubinstein
Yesterday, Day 13 of the 31-Day Celebrate You! Challenge, I celebrated being open to abundance and prosperity.
Just for fun, using “What is your Elf name?” as a model I created this chart to discover your prosperity name. Let’s all start the year in tune with our divine abundance and prosperity consciousness. So what is your Prosperity Name? Mine is “Fortunate Blessing.”
Thoughts are powerful things. What you think about today creates your reality tomorrow. The more positive your thoughts, the better your life will be. I hope I don’t need to tell you the opposite is true, too.
May 31 is What You Think Upon Grows Day … a day to spend in positive thoughts and gratitude for the abundance ever-present in our lives.
Positive thinking … and taking action with divine inspiration to bring those thoughts into manifestation … has been around a very long time. In researching this observance for today’s post, I found an interesting passage from the Bible. The source only gave me Philippians 4:8, so I had to dig out my old Bible and look it up. (I hadn’t cracked that book open in about a decade!) What I found pleasantly surprised me:
“Dismiss all anxiety from your minds. Present your needs to God in every form of prayer and in petitions full of gratitude. Then God’s own peace, which is beyond all understanding, will stand guard over your hearts and minds, in Christ Jesus.”
The advice is sound. Since what you think about expands, holding onto anxiety just brings on more anxiety inducing scenarios. Being a naturally anxious person, I can attest to that. Letting go of the anxiety and trusting that the Universe will provide takes practice. But I’ve accomplished it in the past, so I know I can do it again.
I’ve been doing a lot of prosperity work lately. And it has been really helping me move away from the negativity that has recently pervaded my life. If you subscribe to my ezine, then you’ll have seen a bulletin I sent out a couple of weeks ago that recommended the Feel Free to Prosper program from Marilyn Jenett, which I highly recommend you check out. Heck! Within 24 hours of starting the program, I found a $5 bill lying on the sidewalk … after a rain! (And that was only the beginning!)
Anyway, one of the many ezines I subscribe to is Christine Kloser’s Conscious Business Connection. In last month’s issue she included an article that really spoke to me and I’d like to share it with you here. I hope it speaks to you, as well.

Have you ever found yourself struggling in your business? You feel like you’re doing everything right, but still something’s not clicking into place? For many conscious entrepreneurs, the difference between experiencing the success they’re looking for… or not… is the difference between being able to ask for and receive what they want, need and desire.
Right now, I’d like you to think about a time when you felt totally “in the flow” of receiving. Perhaps you received a surprised gift in the mail, maybe an unexpected client called to work with you, maybe the help you needed showed up at just the right time in just the right way. These acts of receiving can feel like pure magic and give you a glimpse of how graceful and ease-y success can be.
But, in order to be open to receiving, first you need to ask for the gifts you want to receive. For some entrepreneurs the simple act of asking makes all of the difference in the world. However, when it comes to asking, many people feel like it’s not OK to ask for what they need or want. This fear can be rooted in your experience growing up, a recent experience in which asking for something lead to pain, or from a gazillion other things.
