Overflowing with Abundance & Prosperity: Part II

“The word “abundance” comes from abunda-re, Latin for “to overflow”. “Prosperity” comes from the Latin prospera-re, meaning “to render fortunate”.

Everyone knows someone who is a chronic complainer. Nothing is ever right, they are never happy no matter what they do or what is done for them. They live in a world of negativity and no possibility. When you ask whether he or she would like to do something that you consider fun, the first word out of his or her mouths is “no.” Without even considering the positive side of a situation, they jump head first into what is wrong and lacking. The mind is like a river that can flow in any direction. You can train the mind to flow smoothly in the direction of your choosing or you can choose to have an abundance of “no” mind. You can prosper with a mind that you guide to live fully in the moment, free of any lack or desperation. As you can see, the choice is yours and yours alone.

According to Time magazine, Richard Davidson, a researcher at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, has been using brain imaging to show that meditation shifts activity in the prefrontal cortex (the area directly behind our foreheads) from the right hemisphere to the left. The negative “no” people are right-brain prefrontal oriented, whereas those individuals who are left-brain prefrontal dominant tend to be happier, more enthusiastic, relaxed, and filled with the joy of life. It is in this state of mind that you naturally reside with the flow of universal abundance and prosperity. What this suggests is that a regular practice of yoga and meditation can reorient the brain from a stressful fight-or-flight mode to one of acceptance, a significant shift that increases contentment.

Your mind defines who you are and where you are destined to be. Negativity can certainly creep up on you but positive affirmation is key for happiness.

I like the 'clean house' statement in meditation practice. I am making some progress over the last five years in doing just that. I feel more serene and productive today. Thank you :)
