Ways to Listen to this Episode:
May's definition of wealth is being "whole and complete, lacking nothing." And that goes for every area of your life, not just finances.
Intuition is spiritual– you can't see it. Relying on intuition is a success tool.
Often when a thought comes into our mind, we analyze it and try to figure out what the outcome will be. It leads to analysis paralysis.
The source of your intuition has the job of creating the path for you to achieve your goals and giving you one intuitive lead at a time, which aids you when making decisions. It is your responsibility to take a step when you receive a message/"hit"/lead, or ask for another lead.
You can create the life you want. Get clear on what you want and focus on what you want instead of what you don't want, you will see your goals manifest in your life.
What You Can Do
Choose your words well. Don't talk about what you DON'T want. Describe your goal as if it has already been completed and you have already achieved it. "I am so grateful for my fit, toned, pain-free body that allows me to enjoy activities with my family." How do you feel, and what are you experiencing? Describe what your life is like after having achieved the goal.
Make a daily ritual to prime your brain for success. May calls these the 7 Steps. Set up an area in your home where you can meet with your guiding intuition each morning for 25 to 30 minutes. This is a goal attainment meeting (steps 1 through 3):
Read something inspirational for 5 minutes. This puts you in a receptive mood.
In the next 10 minutes, write out a gratitude letter to your "Chief Spiritual Officer" whether that is God, your intuition, the universe, etc. Include first the things you are thankful for, and second the things you want–making sure to write your wants as if you already have them, with gratitude (as mentioned above). Prioritize the goals you will write about so as not to exceed 10 minutes for this step.
Read your letter from step 2 out loud. This enables your subconscious and activates your goals in your brain. The affirmations gets into your spirit.
Spend 5 minutes visualizing yourself achieving your goals. Close your eyes and see yourself in that completed goal.
After this meeting, go on about your day, and expect and watch for leads and what kinds of thoughts you have throughout the day. If you get ideas in your head about something or somewhere, pay attention and act on them if your intuition guides to do so.
If you take the step, celebrate it. Write down demonstrations of the partnership between you and intuition–record the leads you received and the steps you took.
At night, write down anything that happened that day that you are thankful for. Say them out loud. Then recite a giving forth prayer, which is a statement about anything negative like anger, resentment etc. that is taking up space instead of what you want in your life.
The key to this prosperity practice is repetition. Repetition reaps rewards, so keep your daily goal attainment meeting to no more than 30 minutes so that you can do it every day.
