Prosperity arrives on the wings of gratitude. The dragonfly symbolizes a shift from scarcity consciousness to prosperity consciousness. Appreciating what you already have brings more to appreciate.
Declare “I Am Creating Prosperity” and reflect on these words from Wayne Dyer: “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.”
Prosperity is a state of mind. It’s knowing that you are enough, will always have enough because you’re part of an abundant universe. Look for the abundance that is all around you and you’ll be prosperous.
If you happen to see a dragonfly acknowledge it as a sign of prosperity in your life. Express gratitude for the reminder.
Your prosperity benefits others. The more you have, the more you have to share. Use your wealth to enrich the lives of others.

Just like you wake up in the morning to start a new day, you can wake up one day and start a new life. When the light of your soul illuminates a path to freedom that your ego decides to follow, you will experience heaven on earth.
Declare “I Am Changing My Life” and remember what Thoreau said: “To be awake is to be alive.”
Your ego has beliefs and out of those beliefs habits have been formed. Healthy habits are useful but unhealthy habits are not. Recognize any unhealthy habits you may have so you can have a starting point for change. The best way to change an unhealthy habit is to replace it with a healthy one that provides you with an emotional payoff. For example, if you have the habit of procrastination you could change that to anticipation by rewarding yourself upon completion.

Beliefs are like puzzle pieces that interlock to form your identity. Since nature abhors a vacuum, if you want to change a limiting belief you can remove a detrimental piece, and replace it with one that’s useful.
“The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.” ~ James Allen
The first step to changing a belief is to identify it. The way to recognize that a limiting belief is operating in your life is to detect patterns that are driving your behavior. If you’re stuck on repeat and want to change a behavior, decide what kind of a belief you would have to have to keep attracting the same kind of experiences over and over again.
The second step is to choose a new belief. You can replace a limiting belief with one that is empowering by flipping it to its opposite. For example: ‘I’m not good enough’ can be changed to ‘I am good enough.’
The third step is to...
The nature of thought is to flow freely in a stream of consciousness. When fearful thinking gets stuck in your head it forms a block to your well-being. You can clear the blockage by focusing more on what you love.
Declare “I Am Changing My Thoughts” and consider this quote by Max Plank: “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Being in a constant state of love and gratitude will change your life. If you direct your mind to always look for something to love and appreciate there will be no room for complaining, blaming or judging.
Your physical state affects your mental state. You can change your biochemistry by moving your body and breathing deeply. For example, if your thoughts are causing you to feel down or depressed, put on some music and dance or step outside and do some vigorous breathing exercises or take a walk in nature to change your state.
If you often feel like a victim or that...
From the season of hibernation to the first day of spring, change happens naturally. It’s a constant reminder that anything can be transformed with the light of faith, the power of love, and a desire for growth.
Declare “I Am Ready for Change” and reflect on this quote by Viktor Frankl: “When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.”
You can change anything with the power of love. When you love the change you wish to see, it opens the door to transformation.
Your body changes every day due to do constant cell die-off and regeneration. If you want healthier cells in the future, what could you do differently now? Use any current symptoms you may have as a catalyst for change.
Contemplate the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

When you meet high challenges with high skills, you enter a state of flow. This is where time stands still through the power of full engagement. You’re focused, you know what to do, you have the skills to do it, and you feel happy.
Declare “I Am Entering a Flow State” and reflect on this quote: “To be able to concentrate for a considerable time is essential to difficult achievement.” – Bertrand Russell
To challenge yourself physically, set a goal that matches your skills. While fully engaged in the challenge you will hit your peak performance state when you merge with the experience, lose yourself, everything feels right, and moving your body becomes effortless.
Engage in a creative task that requires your intense focus, clarity, and concentration. In this case the task is intrinsically rewarding. You will be creating for the pure joy of creating something new.
Being in a flow state raises productivity and creativity. It means setting...
Two unlikely companions are the ego and the soul. One is fueled by blame and judgment while the other is filled with love and compassion. Healing occurs when the two come together and find common ground.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Judgment” and reflect on these words: “Do not judge yourself harshly. Without mercy for ourselves we cannot love the world.” Buddha
Your soul is a non-judgmental witness that responds to pain and suffering with love and compassion. Look for the positive intention behind a negative behavior and it will help you let go of judgment.
Self-judgment is a lack of compassion for being human. It comes from having certain expectations about yourself that you haven’t fulfilled or recalling past mistakes you haven’t forgiven. Set yourself free with self-acceptance.
All human behavior is either coming from love or it is a cry for love. If you are in the habit of judging yourself or others harshly for behaving badly, try...
Freedom lies beyond the mundane world of self-doubt. It’s a higher state of mind where dreaming the impossible dream, taking inspired risks, and trusting in divine wisdom fuels the dreamer with passion and purpose.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Doubt” and reflect on this quote from Richard Branson: “I view life as one big adventure. I’m always learning, and finding new things to try and challenges to overcome.”
When life causes you to doubt yourself remember that self-doubt is a strategy of the ego to stop you from taking risks. Its main concern is survival and so you will need to coax your ego along until it gets comfortable with uncertainty.
Self-doubt is a sign that a limiting belief about yourself is operating. You can update your operating system by realizing that doubt is a block to inner wisdom. You can choose to let it go, meditate, ask for divine guidance, and take inspired action. Repeat daily to instill...
Faith in the goodness of life begins where worry ends. This is where you’ll discover an island of inner peace exists inside your imagination. When you trust in the wisdom of uncertainty the world will reflect your integrity.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Worry” and imagine the best.
Focus on what you do want, rather than worrying about what you don’t want; this allows you to feel good in the present, and create a better future.
Worry drains your mental energy and makes it more difficult to come up with solutions. Let go of worry and you’ll free your mind to come up with creative ideas, overcome challenges, solve problems, and discover new possibilities.
Drink plenty of water. Your mental state improves when you’re hydrated and you’re less likely to worry when you’re in a good mood.
Einstein said: “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Practice creative visualization as a...
Love is on the other side of fear. Past fear causes depression, and future fear is called anxiety. Let go of your past and future fears while centered in your heart, and return to love in the present moment.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Fear” and find your balance.
Fear has a way of putting up walls around your heart. Fear of rejection, abandonment, failure, and judgment can stop you from going for it and living your dreams. Let go of fear and tear down the imaginary barriers to wholehearted living.
FEAR is an acronym for ‘False Expectations Appearing Real.’ Drop your false expectations and replace them with Love. LOVE stands for ‘Living On Vital Energy.’ Fear is only useful when it steers you away from danger and keeps you safe.
The most important journey you’ll ever take is from your head to your heart. The ego can paralyze you with all its fear-based beliefs. Your soul will uplift you with its love-centered wisdom. Make a list...
