Gawain defines prosperity as "the experience of having plenty of what we truly need and want in life, material and otherwise." She adds that "the key point to understand is that prosperity is an internal experience, not an external state, and it is an experience that is not tied to money." This is one reason why many people find themselves unhappy, despite the fact that they have more than enough money to cover their needs.
This does not mean that money is unimportant, and a certain amount of it is obviously needed to meet basic survival needs. The difficulty for many people comes from how they think about money. Gawain says that "essentially, money is a symbol for energy." We use our energy in a certain way--work--and receive money in exchange. We can then exchange our money for something created by someone else's energy. This defines money as a flow of energy and "our financial affairs tend to reflect how our life energy is moving."
Prosperity eludes many of us for a variety of reasons. Gawain provides some exercises for understanding personal patterns and overcoming habits and thought processes that keep individuals from achieving their prosperity goals. From this, she gets into a discussion of polarities and how most of us feel that we must always choose between opposites, with neither choice providing happiness. She details six steps that help individuals to balance their own inner polarities.Read more ›
Gawain's key point seems to be that prosperity is related to but not caused by money, which is only the means not the end. So then, just what is the relationship between money and prosperity? Gawain suggests, there are three approaches to this relationship. The material approach is a purely external one while the spiritual approach is an internal one. The third approach, which Gawain calls the "New Age" approach, is based on consciousness. We manifest externally what we feel and think internally. While Gawain considers this last approach more realistic than the material or the spiritual, she feels that all three are too simplistic and limiting and offers a fourth approach This one draws on the other three but goes beyond them.Read more ›

This book is very good at helping you become aware of beliefs that you might subconsciously entertain that prevent you from either experiencing or seeing prosperity in your life.Published on December 20, 2012 by sylviascarlet
