As I receive, I give.
I may have noticed that when I feel grateful or happy I also feel expansive and prosperous. Gratitude is what I give when I notice that I have received. Receiving precedes giving. We give because we have already received. This is true prosperity – prosperity consciousness. I build this attitude by looking for the good in every encounter. When I set the intention and desire to look for the good, I find the good. When I look for the good I am looking for what is already present and that, in some way, I have already received. if I cannot immediately see the good, I become still and focus on my Divine Identity. I claim the good which opens my eyes to perceiving what is already there.
For example, in the midst of a challenging meeting or difficult conversation, I pivot my attention away from the situation to my Divinity. I claim the Good I am. I affirm, there is good here. As I do so I feel light, free, and at peace. I can now easily perceive the good that has always been present. I am grateful for what I have received. This is prosperity in action! From within the sanctuary of my Beingness, the light shines in my consciousness and true treasure is found as inner peace and joy.
As I see the good, I receive the good and so I give of myself. As I receive, I give.
