Indulge In Prosperity

Aug 17, 2007
How do you feel about the word "indulge"? Does it get your back up a little bit, cause a twinge, or remind you of words you've heard about the indulgent and spoiled rich?

In your mind, does there seem to be a connection between arrogance and the indulged few? Does it seem that you don't fit in the lifestyle of the rich and famous? And even if you did, you're not sure you'd want to be in the company of those who indulge in their wasteful whims.

Even some dictionaries suggest that indulgence implies wasteful excessiveness when actually it means to partake of something wholly, freely, without abandon or restraint. Experiencing without limits or constraint. If you go on vacation, do so without guilt. If you are taking a few minutes for yourself engage completely in your favorite activity, not some mindless TV show. Indulge in making your life full of quality experiences.

It's amazing what convoluted paths our busy minds can lead us on. Too often we think of those with larger lives than our own and our minds lead us down the rut of discouragement and distain or outright fear.

Most of us don't know that our mind leads us to or away from our goals all day, every day. Everything that we observe goes through the filter of our beliefs and preconceived notions. Our mind already has a default opinion that tells us what to do and what to think without making a conscious choice. The automatic response is based on old information, processed and put on automatic when we first encountered the stimulus. It's based on who and what we were then.

Many of our decisions are in default mode and this simplifies our life. Previous experience allows us to cross the street without having to decide if we should wait for the oncoming freight truck to pass. Mom said to look both ways and that advise is still good. We patiently wait and avoid chaos or worse.

Some of the decisions we made in the past don't serve us as well. If we ever spent time with others who thought the rich were somehow responsible for some social ill and if their companionship and approval was important to us, we are going to have a tough time indulging in our own prosperity. Unless we make a new decision and replace that automatic thought process with intention, we base our future on decisions we made in the past.

What would it feel like if you allowed yourself to live your life fully and without reservation or restraint? What would it feel like to allow your wealth and life to expand to its fullest potential? What would your life be like if you fully and freely indulged in prosperity? What if you allowed yourself to experience prosperity without limits?

Until you take the time to watch your mind as an outside, non-reactive observer, your old programming will quickly override any plans you have to change your life. When you start to watch the path your head automatically goes you notice that your mind takes you to beliefs you have been operating from that you don't even believe!

As you develop the habit of watching your thoughts, reevaluating the core beliefs and making new choices you will gain the power to direct your life in new and more expansive directions.

Nothing can stop you from manifesting your dreams other than your own beliefs about who you are and why you can't.

Discover who you really are and why you really can. Isn't it time to get out of your own way? Open the path to an expansive new life and indulge in prosperity.
