What if we took challenges and things that we perceive as an “issue” or a “problem” and reframed them in terms of being a gift instead? What would then happen?
Are there issues or challenges in your life that you can reframe and begin seeing the gifts in them rather than a problem or something to be sad or angry about?
Secondly, is there anybody in your life (including yourself) that could benefit from healing energy? For example, maybe you know someone who is under the weather or has a serious illness. Whether it is a cold or cancer, perhaps it would be helpful to think of them as healthy and well rather as sick. I don’t think sick people or poor people or anybody under distress need our pity. What they need is affirmation of their wholeness and health and prosperity.
To welcome something takes an openness: an open heart, spirit, arms, mind, etc. To sincerely welcome something also includes a good dose of enthusiasm.
What we focus on grows. What are you welcoming and what would you like to welcome in if you could not hold yourself back? Hmm…?
Ready, set, write!
My entry tonight may look like this:
I welcome into my life right now:
2. Opportunities to write and get paid for my writing.
3. New friends!
4. Freedom to live life on my terms
5. Abundance: good food, good relationships, good projects, good financial prospects
Have a blessed evening, friends.
If you want something, give it away. When we freely give something away we send a powerful message to the universe that we have such an abundance of _______ that we can give it away. That is why a basic principle of prosperity is tithing. Even if you feel you don’t have much money, make it a priority to give anyway. The giving is an affirmation of your abundance and faith that there is much more where that money came from.
In your journal, think about the abundance you enjoy. Be thankful for it. If there is something you would like more of in your life (money, love, etc.), rather than complaining about not having enough of ______, think of a way to give whatever it is away to another.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
At first, it may feel a little counter-intuitive to do this but it is very simple- and it does work. Write down some ideas in your journal and then get out there and start giving away what you want!

One area that keeps many of us up at night is finances. For many, these are difficult economic times we are in. In recent years I have experienced financial hardship. I got a divorce last year that really has been quite devastating to my financial life and good credit. Here are some things that I am learning to do:
Finances is one topic that keeps many of us up at night. Gaining a healthy perspective about our financial life will greatly lessen our anxiety levels and help us sleep.
Ten thoughts for today:
1. Life tends to ebb and flow. If you are experiencing some kind of financial hardship right now, know that this is temporary.
2. Money is nice to have, but it does not define who we are as human beings. In other words, we do not need to take a small paycheck, small bank account balance, or low credit score personally. They are just numbers. They are not us.
3. If a bill is not paid today, it will not be the end of the world.
4. There are many great books out there to help us manage finances, invest, and develop a prosperous mindset. Here are just a few that are near my bedside table at the moment: Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker, and Your Money Or Your Life by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez. Make a commitment to yourself to learn about your relationship with money and begin cultivating empowering thoughts about your financial status.
5. List action steps in your journal of things you can do right now to improve your financial situation. Knowing that you have some kind of action plan will greatly lesson your anxiety and help you feel more in control.
6. Consider tithing. Even if you think you can’t afford it, give what you can. Write down some ideas in your journal about causes or organizations that you feel passionate about and would like to support. Just the thought of giving will make you feel better.
7. You are supported. You are taken care. You are safe. You have everything that you need.
8. Write a list of everything that you are thankful for right now. This list represents the many blessings that are in your life.
9. Brainstorm ways to supplement your income. Don’t edit or prejudge. Just list any ideas that come to mind.
10. Start or join a mastermind/prosperity/support group that is made up of like minded people that will support you and your financial goals.
