Welcome to this session of Prosperity Now.
We are NOW moving into the next phase of this series where
we examine in depth Universal Laws and Principles for living
our lives in bliss and manifesting all that we desire. The
structure of the series is still in development. At this
point, for this specific topic the structure is:
1. Review of the foundation principles
guiding our Prosperity Now Tool Chest.
2. Introduction of a New Tool or a
clarification of a tool we have already introduced.
3.Introduction of a Law or a review at a deeper level of a
Law or Principle that is a key that unlocks the door
to understanding our potentiality and manifesting that
If you attending a live session at this
point we will pause and move toward the feeling of
diminishing all distractions and opening our energy paths to
the gifts that are being delivered when we proceed. If you
are reading this, there is a recording of the live session
and you are encouraged to meditate and achieve for you what
we have for the people in the live session. Isn't the
technology that allows us to share this experience with the
world marvelous. I encourage you to be grateful for all the
tools that help us realize our unlimited potential

Part 1: The Prosperity Now Tool Chest
There is a foundation to the Prosperity
Now Tool Chest. Without this foundation, the Tool Chest may
be just another box. The foundation belief is: God, Being,
Divine Energy, the Source is infinite and is part of each
one of us. As each of us has God within us, we as spiritual
beings having a human experience have no limitations.
In the physical plane we have three states: first there is
our Divine State. This is the state of God within. Dr. Len
in Zero Limits calls this Zero he also explains the paradox
of zero which is that the conscious self cannot comprehend
zero. This makes sense as we cannot comprehend infinite.
Next we have the state of Inspiration. In
the physical plane we have unlimited potential by the
connection to our Divine State. Our inspired state is
connected to God and we are on purpose. We also manifest all
our dreams and desires from the state of Inspiration which
is the "direct connect" channel to God. The third state is
where we have the most challenges in physical plane and that
is our conscious mind. Our ego which we were gifted with
along with our Divine Self works on our conscious mind which
is opposite of our Divine Self. I believe the ego is the
basis for the idea of good vs. evil and sin, condemnation,
hell vs. heaven, and all the negative energies like anger,
anxiety, stress, fear, hate, etc.
Prosperity Now is all about helping us
live in an inspired state. When we live in an inspired state
we, our Divine Selves, give no energy to ego and it
dissolves. All that is left is bliss.
The third state is memory which is a
record of all of our experiences and all of our ancestor
experiences. It is also directly connected to our
subconscious self and now that is the ultimate tool of the
ego. Since we operate at the conscious level and constantly
try to rationalize all the events we manifest, we say "how
could I possibly be responsible for that or that" The answer
I believe lies in the receptors of our subconscious which
are millions of times greater than what we absorb at the
conscious level which becomes conscious memory. So
normally we look outward for excuses instead of inward for
reasons and we are confused.
Prosperity Now is all about clearing the
clutter that gives rise to confusion and brings clarity to
living an inspired life and not a life of desperation.
There is just one other very important
point: Why do any of this? What is the goal you want to
manifest from paying attention to any of this?
I believe the goal is peace. It doesn't
matter if you want monetary riches, blissful relationships,
a self sufficient cave on top of a mountain. I believe that
at the soul of what we desire is peace. The peace that comes
from being on purpose. Be clear as to the reason you are
paying any attention to any of this. When in doubt, and I
believe we all have moments of doubt, we remind ourselves of
the following that I first heard from Wayne Dyer " You Have
Tried Everything Else...Now Try ME" I know for myself that
if my plan was working to my satisfaction, I wouldn't be
here offering what I have discovered and what I continue to
Clearing The Clutter and The Blockages
The end result is the same and I believe
there is no one way to reach it. For me there are very
strong feelings about using the way of the Prosperity Now
process. If this process makes sense for you, terrific. If
not, then discover the tool that works for you the
best. Whatever you use, I suggest the tool should accomplish
for you what the Prosperity Now Tool Chest is accomplishing
for for me, which is to align the energy of of thought with
Divine Wisdom and Love. When in alignment we are inspired to
be on purpose - the purpose of being in the physical plane.
Most of Prosperity Now is about clearing
the blockages to all the feelings that we want to
manifest...the blockages to our purpose. The reason we spend
time on the blockages is because by clearing these blocks we
open our energy path to God. We connect to Divine Love and
the energy field within that I refer to as our Inspired Self
guides us. When we follow this guidance we are on purpose.
It is very important to remember we are
all here in the physical plane for a purpose. We are
spiritual beings with Divine Energy as our essence, and yet
our purpose for being here is our purpose for being here. I
believe each one of use has a distinct and unique purpose.
Prosperity Now is all about living on purpose and
manifesting all that we desire without limitations.
The Core Tool of Prosperity Now
The Prosperity Journal is the core tool.
In addition to the Prosperity Journal there are other
support tools including: mediation; practicing The Power of
Now; cleaning and creating our experiences in advance; and
more. Each one of these and more have been covered in detail
or will be covered in detail.
A Summary Review of Using Your
1. Start by Listing Your Dreams and
Desires without limits
2. Restate your Dreams and Desires as Intentions. At this
point is is very important to examine why an intention is
important to you. What feelings do you want to have as a
result of manifesting each intention.
3. Prioritize your intentions as Commitments. What would you
regret not doing or becoming if you were transitioning from
the physical plane. Once defined you will be inspired to
4. Remind yourself to be detached from the outcome. The
specific images we visualize in connection with our dreams
and desires often appear exactly as we pictured them.
However, God delivers what is best for us and what is
delivered may be much greater that we even imagined. Be
specific, associate the feelings of your dreams and desires
already being here which they are and then let go and let
5. Remind yourself to be grateful for all that you are and
all that you have
6. Live within the Dynamic Laws of Prosperity. The primary
ones at this point are The Law of Forgiveness and the Law of
Giving and Receiving.
7. Use your Prosperity Journal daily. Intend your day in
advance. Align your daily intentions with your list of
Dreams and Desires and Commitments.
8. Once a week review your Dreams and Desires and add to the
list and note entries that may have decreased in importance
Part 2: Commitment
The idea of adding commitment to
Prosperity Now came from the book FIVE WISHES by Gay
Hendricks. Gay finds himself at a party and meeting Ed
Steinbrecher. He is described as a spiritual teacher and
astrologer. I did a little research on him and there was a
man who developed a following with his teachings.
What is really important right now is the understanding that
both Gay and Ed were at a party and impatient with the scene
as they both did not like engaging in small talk. Ed asked
Gay if he would like small talk or big talk. From there Ed
said he almost died. Of course this was obviously very big
talk. He went on to ask "I stand by your deathbed and look
you right in the eyes and ask you, was your life a complete
At this point the book goes much deeper by
guiding us to think in terms of a magnificent life how ever
each of us defines that. J. Paul Getty who was once the
wealthiest man in the world said on his deathbed. "I'd
gladly give up all my millions for one experience of marital
happiness. If he had been granted a wish that is what he
would have wished for."
The book proceeds by Gay Hendricks give us
the detail of the FIVE WISHES he developed that night and
what happened to him as a result. Please do not get caught
up by the number. J. Paul Getty appears to have had one.
Others may have three, or 10. What matters is the process.
I believe this ties directly to our dreams
and desires. I believe if you examine your dreams and
desires closely and think deeply about these dreams and
desires, you will arrive at a view of the main reasons why
your life is a success or will be a success by following the
Prosperity Now process.
FIVE WISHES Exercise: Source
At this point in the live session we are
receiving the printout of the FIVE WISHES worksheet that is
freely available on line. This worksheet is now an integral
part of our Prosperity Journal. Of course it is useless if
we don't apply the energy and complete the process.
Assignment: Before the next session, use a
section of your Prosperity Journal and complete the FIVE
WISHES worksheet. I suggest you start by listing in your
journal five reasons why your life has not been a success.
In the book which everyone should read and
you will find a link to it at the resource section of
Prosperity Now the link is
Prosperity Resource Books Wings bookstore may have
restocked it. I am sure a bookstore either has it or can
easily get it for you.
One of Gay's wishes that he states in the
past tense (this is important because remember you are on
your deathbed) was described as follows: " My life was not a
total success because I never enjoyed a long and happy
marriage with a woman I adored and who adored me. I wish I'd
enjoyed a lifelong blossoming of passion and creativity with
After describing this, Ed then asked why
is this important to you? I love that question and it fits
perfectly with the suggestion of the feelings we want from
the manifestation of our dreams and desires.
After Gay answered the question, Ed then
said "Okay, now turn the wish into a goal and put it in the
present tense, as if it is happening at this moment." (At
this point you should no longer be surprised at the
suggestion the feelings that come from your thoughts are
focused on those feeling that result from your Dreams and
Desires already being manifested.)
This is how Gay restated this wish:
"My life is a total success because I'm
enjoying a long and happy marriage with a woman I adore and
who adores me. I am enjoying a lifelong blossoming of
passion and creativity with her."
Simply note how his wish is restated as
being her now for him. There are more wishes as evidenced by
the title of the book. Gay writes a chapter of how his life
unfolded after he restated five wishes into five goals and
took action on each one of them.
To summarize the commitment process:
1. Write your FIVE DEATHBED WISHES
2. Restate as goals
3. Act upon your goals.
Most people, I believe, who read this book
will say " Oh what a marvelous story. I am going to do that
FIVE WISHES thing." Then put down the book, never spend a
minute more and wonder why their lives of desperation and
frustration never change. The people who commit themselves
to the Prosperity Now process will do this exercise and
their lives will change because they will attract all that
they define as important to them. It can be no other way.
In Session 1 we clearly stated we would
not ask anyone to read the entries to their prosperity
journal. We are holding to that promise. However in order to
clarify how to develop your FIVE WISHES goals, in the next
session we will open the discussion to your questions about
this process. The questions are entirely voluntary and we
will draw upon the wisdom of the group to help clarify the
FIVE WISHES exercise for anyone wanting that assistance.
I believe anyone who follows the
Prosperity Now process that now includes the FIVE WISHES
commitment exercise can only experience a marvelous live
that is beyond what we dream and desire.
Part 3: Examine a Universal Law
In this session we will explore the Law of
Paradoxical Intent. The source of this information is the
book Quantum Success by Sandra Anne Taylor. Sandra's work
gave me the idea of the Prosperity Now Journal. Every book
mentioned in the Prosperity Now series is featured in the
Prosperity Resource Books section of the Prosperity Now
The Law of Paradoxical Intent has taken me
a little time to fully appreciate as it necessary to think
in opposite terms. Hopefully for you it will be easier to
naturally understand. From Susan's book: "The Law of
Paradoxical Intent reflects the Law of Magnetism
(Attraction) in warning that you will only get a return on
your negative energy. If you are desperate to make something
happen, that repulsive vibration with push it away, turning
away the very people and situations that might bring your
desired outcome. Your desperation therefore creates the
paradox - or the opposite - of your original intention,
leading you to failure instead of success."
If you are living in desperation, you are
not living in happiness. This law ties right into the Law of
Detachment and for that reason I am not adding this law to
the principles of the Prosperity Now Journal. The Law of
Paradoxical Intent further clarifies the Law of Detachment.
Our goal is to live in peace, happiness and prosperity now.
If we defer these feelings and "embrace misery about
tomorrow's uncertainty, you shut down your willingness to
If you take this literally some might say
well "I am going through the difficulty of attending school
at night for a degree in a field where I want to work" or "I
am putting up with my job so I can feed my family" or "I
said until death do us part so I am sticking this out" I am
sure you get the idea.
Taken literally, the Law of Paradoxical Intent would suggest
in the above examples you don't go to school, quit your job,
or leave your spouse. Now some of us may need to do some of
those things if we are not on purpose. But I don't believe
the Law of Paradoxical Intent is telling us to any of those
things. This Law is reminding us that is we live a life of
quiet desperation, we are blocking or dreams and desires.
Now let's look at some practical things here so we agree on
how to work through periods of quiet desperation.
Step 1. Recognize those areas of your life where you maybe
coming from a bit or a lot of desperation. Use your
Prosperity Now Journal to make notes as to what areas of
your life you may have some desperate thinking.
Step 2. Match up your dreams and desires
with that desperation list. Now recognize the areas of
desperation is the Law of Paradoxical Intent at work.
Recognize that your desperate thinking is blocking you from
Let's pause and comment on desperate
thinking. It is very important to evaluate all areas of your
life and expose those area where your thinking is in fact in
martyr mode. I am giving up my good now in hopes of
receiving it later. You may not realize you have desperate
thinking until you examine your belief systems in the areas
of health, wealth, relationships,work, spirituality etc.
Step 3. Begin using your daily Prosperity
Now Journal entries to remind yourself that you don't need
what you desire to be happy and that you are absolutely
capable of being happy right now just by changing your state
- your thoughts. This is not giving up on your dreams and
desires, it is simply releasing the urgency associated with
them. Susan details an outstanding example of this in her
book when she talks about the experience of being a
published author for the first time.
Step 4 Remember we create everything in
our lives. It is also true we can release people and things
that do not line up with our value system.
Susan summarizes The Law of Paradoxical
Intent this way
"The Law of Paradoxical intent points our
the underlying paradox of personal achievement: You can get
what you want by knowing that you don't need it to be happy!
It forces you to shift your focus from desperate intention
to a peaceful pursuit. Never send out the energy that you
are willing to wait to be happy - just that you are willing
to wait for the goal. Needing a particular achievement
before you can live with peace and joy creates a desperate
energy that is absolute poison to the resonance of success,
so be clear about your intentions and fearless in your
motivations. Pursue your goals because you want them to
enhance an already happy life, not because you'll be
miserable without them."
She also writes " Let yourself weave your
future with positive energy, creative consciousness and pure
intention with no conflicts about all things.
Never obsess about one option or solution,
and let the desperation go. When your major goal is to live
with optimism and trust your other desires will be met."
The following is from
Stand For God
and is presented to you here:
I wish for you and for myself to to realize
and live with the understanding that I am totally
responsible for everything in my life - everything and to
live a no-limit life. I Stand for God there are no limits.
The materials and resources at this site along with the
weekly meetings are all designed to help us get the points
of total responsibility and no limit potentiality.
May you experience the unlimited love, health, happiness and
prosperity that are yours for the asking.
