GRATITUDE is a necessary ingredient in your prosperity quest. Like in health and happy living, heartfelt gratitude is a very high, positive vibration that literally magnetizes prospering substance to you. The grateful heart sends out a signal to the whole universe, letting it know that you truly desire to prosper. The universe, in return, opens “the windows of heaven” for you and pours prosperity blessings into your life. People respond more positively to the grateful heart because they mystically know that it is truly filled with the presence of God. If your level of prosperity has not been as high as you would like it to be, create within yourself a higher level of true gratitude. With a grateful heart, thank God for all the blessings you have now and for all that are on the way.
In my book, *The Secret of Multiplied Money, I tell about a lady in North Dakota who wrote to say that until she learned to be genuinely grateful, her level of prosperity was very low. She said that when she did expressed gratitude, it was rather shallow without much feeling. Being truly grateful was difficult at first, but as she persisted, things began to change, mostly within her. Then one day, quite unexpectedly, she was informed by her employer that she would receive a substantial raise in pay. Her boss told her he was very happy with her improved attitude and the pleasant way she interacted with other employees. As this lady continued raising her level of real gratitude her prosperity level raised in delightful ways, too. Not only does the grateful heart attract greater financial abundance, it attracts loving people, and your whole life becomes more joyful. The heart filled with thankfulness is a heart filled with God, and God is love. Love is the very substance of God that prospers you and every phase of your life in every wonderful way. – Lovingly, Rev. John
The Law of the Magic Lamp
In the story of Aladdin and the wonderful lamp, the genie did not appear simply because Aladdin wished him to appear. He appeared when Aladdin rubbed the lamp! When Aladdin set about putting into order what had been placed in his custody, his good appeared. Rub your lamp! Put into use the things that you now possess, whether they be material possessions, talents and abilities, or opportunities for service. What are you doing with what you have? Take the step that is just ahead of you. Use what you have. Rub your lamp! Make way in your consciousness and in your affairs for the more abundant good that you desire. It is notable that, in the seemingly miraculous demonstrations of abundance recounted in the Old and New Testaments, simple, everyday things, things that were right at hand, were made the basis of demonstrations that reached far beyond the expected. For instance, Elijah called forth abundance to meet the widow’s needs by using the little oil that she had in the house. Some people say that they do not succeed in demonstrating prosperity because they have no opportunities. It would be more accurate for them to say that they can see no opportunities. We block the channels of our supply when we do not use the supply that has already come to us. “What have I done with what I have?” is a question that everyone who would demonstrate greater abundance should ask him or herself, and should answer honestly. It is not necessary to “storm the gates of heaven” for what has already been given you. You need instead to pray for the vision to see with receptive eyes the opportunities and blessings God has already given to you through His many channels. It is a mark of spiritual growth to recognize the good for which you ask, and continually give thanks for it. – Adapted from: The Secret Way of Abundance by Dr. Ernest Wilson

Read this Prospering Letter! From Indebtedness to Wealth! – I thought I would share with you my personal experience. I have gone from being over $50,000.00 in debt (unsecured-Credit cards) to being debt free and tens of thousands in the bank. It was done by prosperity treatments and affirmations just as you suggest. This all happened within less then a year’s time. The one thing that really helped me was this: I realized that I did not think I deserved to be wealthy or prosperous. I had not done anything that I considered worthy of wealth. I had not founded a great business. I was not a movie star or a Bill Gates type person, so why should I be wealthy? I realized that I did not believe that I should be wealthy or prosperous and so I had never been. Throughout my entire life I did not think I deserved to be prosperous. I was depressed for about two days after I realized this because deep down I knew it was true. I knew that I really did believe I had to achieve something of gigantic proportions to deserve wealth. Following that realization I knew that I did deserve to be wealthy or prosperous. I realized that there were plenty of people who had not done much of anything to be wealthy and that showed me that it is not necessary to do something out of the ordinary to be wealthy. These people simply had the consciousness of wealth and no matter how they came by it, they had it and I could have it to. Today I know that no matter what it is, if I provide the consciousness that corresponds it WILL manifest. I proved this to myself by using treatments (prayers) and affirmations. Thanks for all of you help. – J. H. in Spring, TX
All the Universe is your storehouse from which to receive. The world is your field of radiation or expression. – E. V. Ingraham If you lay a lot of steel shavings on a barrel, every time someone jars the barrel some of the shavings will fall off; but put a magnet under them and you may turn the barrel upside down and the shavings will stick. So it is with human beings: Whatever you have made yourself a magnet for, you will get! – Venice Bloodworth The poorest person has things to be thankful for, so affirming your abundance is an act of gratitude and humility, as well as a way of keeping yourself in the flow. – Stuart Wilde
