The Key to Spiritual Prosperity



"What is spiritual prosperity, and how do we attract more?"


A young man asked me that question seemingly out of the blue. I mistakenly assumed he wasn't interested in such a topic, so I was surprised when he asked.


I noted that when we speak of spiritual prosperity, we talk about a sense of wholeness, well-being, and a balanced life. It's about allowing the presence of the Infinite to flow through us so that we live knowing it always meets our needs.


Those needs include, among other things, health, a vibration of enthusiasm, circulation of money, ideal employment, and divine guidance.


One way to experience more of the spiritual abundance that is seeking to express through us is to appreciate where we are.


One of my spiritual mentors advised me to appreciate where we are fully and completely. At the time, I felt stuck in life, and this counsel helped me get out of that space. He clarified that appreciating where we are does not mean we are to be satisfied with the way things are because we're naturally predisposed to reach new heights. However, appreciating where we are, we attract more of what we appreciate.


Years later, I received a call from a young man who had heard about these spiritual teachings. During the conversation, he said, "I'm sick and tired of my job. And every time I start sending out résumés and going to interviews, things start falling apart at the last moment. What's going on?"


I shared what I learned from my mentor: to occupy the space he was in entirely. In this case, go to his job and give more than what the compensation he received required. He would then put the universe in his debt.


Ralph Waldo Emerson said that when we put the universe in our debt, it must balance the books and will do so by pushing us to a higher level.


So, when we give more than we're temporarily compensated for, one of two things will happen - either the space we are in will expand to accommodate our higher level of expression, or we will expand beyond our current space, and something new will become available.


I further explained that if he were to hang out in the "sick and tired" consciousness, withholding himself, he'd bring a small piece of himself to the interview or wherever he was trying to get to next.


His octave would be lower, and he would not be able to handle the higher energy he sought to express through him. He would likely make lateral moves with a different title but be on the same level.


If we fully occupy and appreciate where we are, envision where we want to be, and then express ourselves on that level, we cannot help but be moved to our next assignment.


When we are no longer willing to give, we become like a swamp, a body of water with no outlet—dead water that not even animals will drink from.

If we become swamp-like or spiritually stagnant, we siphon our energy. Creative ideas will not flow through our awareness, and love and peace will not flow from our hearts.


We must wake up daily and say, "How can I give more of myself to life today?" Then something returns to us, and we'll never be a swamp. We'll be an ocean. We'll be a wave on that ocean, flowing with the expression of pure spirit.

This is our destiny. This is what spiritual abundance is all about.


Peace and Blessings,

James
