explore the use of prosperity principles in our business or profession
and discuss the foundation and the underlying causes of success. All of
the know-how and marketing skills in the world will not result in
success unless you first create that foundation. You can start creating
foundation of success is in your mind. You
do not need to struggle, seek and strive to build your business. You
can use mental and spiritual laws to create and attract all the
elements that insure success. Wouldn't you love to set your business on
"automatic pilot" and enjoy the ride?
Law of Reversed Effort
application of prosperity principles in business allows us to become
aligned with these spiritual laws to learn how to "receive" success
instead of "trying" to make it happen.
you know there is a law called the Law of Reversed Effort? It states
that the harder you "try" to do something, the less chance you have of
achieving it. Trying implies a negative, it suggests to the mind that
you may not accomplish. Even Yoda in Star Wars recognized this truth
when he wisely said, "We do. There is no try."
teachings are based on what I call "practical metaphysics."
what do we mean by "metaphysical?" Well, "meta" as used as a prefix in
metaphysical, means "comprehensive" or "transcending." Metaphysical is
relating to the transcendent or to a reality beyond what is perceptible
to the senses. In other words, a study of what is outside objective
experience. This includes aspects of the mind and spirit.
definition of practical metaphysics is the study and application of
these transcendent principles from methods that appeal to our "real
world" senses, techniques that we can understand and utilize with ease
- in other words, a simple approach that assures our practical
application of these profound laws. We take the mystery and speculation
out of these principles and instead concentrate on putting them to use
- a nuts and bolts approach.
believe that there are a great number of people who have read and
studied and are well informed about spiritual matters and metaphysical
laws but who have not been able to take these ideas from their
intellect and incorporate them mental and emotionally to put them into
Universe Is My Marketing Department
this study in no way discounts the marketing techniques and tools
taught by the visible world's marketing experts. What I am doing here
is helping you lay the foundation for a mindset that will allow you to
use those tools if you so choose, and succeed with them. The fact is
that all of the marketing and business know-how in the world will not
result in your success unless you first have the mindset to succeed. A
house cannot stand without a proper foundation. And once you create
that foundation, you will automatically be guided to the appropriate
methods and means that will result in your success. You will find as I
did that the Universe is truly the greatest marketing department you
could ever hope for, and the possibilities are unlimited. You can
experience the guidance of an unseen
hand, know what it feels like to
live a charmed
life, and realize that you have an invisible

of my event clients were the world's largest corporations. Now here is
a secret that you may find hard to believe. When I reveal this fact,
people say, "Of course, you don't mean this literally." Ah, but yes, I
do mean this literally: During those 20 years, I never looked for a
client. The clients always found me. I never advertised, marketed, cold
called or networked. And yet my tiny one-woman operation attracted
these large corporate clients. Doors opened spontaneously for the right
exposure, the right opportunities and the right clients. You have to
admit that something uncommon must have been involved - and that
something was an uncommon state of consciousness.
also applied to my new life and evolution as a prosperity teacher. When
I began teaching the Feel Free to Prosper program, I had no idea how I
would attract students or create a reputation. Once again, I took this
to my Universal marketing department, applied the prosperity "homework"
and trusted that the doors would open. I also listened and waited for
guidance. The doors opened. I had no previous experience interacting on
the Internet and had never heard of social networking or social media
when a complete stranger invited me to join an online networking site
called Ryze.com in late 2003. I had learned to use a computer only a
short time before. I participated in discussions and shared my wisdom
on several networks and created my own Feel Free to Prosper Network,
which soon became the platform and launching pad for the prosperity
program that would attract attention from around the globe.
In 2006, I felt inspired to
write my entrepreneurial memoir on my network - the story was intended
for my members. But it soon attracted an agent, tens of thousands of
readers, and ultimately resulted in publishing offers. I had no
intention of writing a book. All of the elements flowed together as if
I were under the jurisdiction of a divine destiny. I am convinced that
each of us has a particular destiny to fulfill but we need to become
aligned with the greater Intelligence that can guide us there.

entrepreneur, professional, working mom, jobseeker, network marketer,
sales agent, coach or creative talent, or even in transition looking
for your true place in life. It doesn't matter what your age,
background, experience or station in life is. The laws are impersonal
and will work for everyone.

Let's Have Some Nuts and Bolts
Watch Your Speech
above can be accomplished only through the use of positive and
life-affirming language. Do not doubt it for a minute. The words you
think, speak (and hear) are recorded in your subconscious mind and will
produce circumstances that correspond to your thoughts and speech. If
you want a successful business or career, you MUST resist the habit and
temptation of speaking about the lack of business or clients or jobs. I
tell my students, "If you don't want it, don't say it." Even if you
feel like you are lying to yourself (or others), continue to speak in
positive terms about your business and affairs. As you persist in
speaking successful words, your subconscious will accept the new ideas
and you will discover that the "lies" are becoming a new and very
tangible reality. But it always first begins in mind. Never forget this.
2. Start Listening
you develop positive thought and speech patterns, you will begin to
clear the debris and static in your subconscious that has prevented you
from tuning in and listening to your intuitive promptings. Practice
paying attention now to those promptings, the hunches, the feelings,
the "still small voice" that subtly urges you to do something. As you
practice listening and following through on these hunches and the more
you discover that they lead to successful results, the more consistent
and the stronger they will become. You will have truly discovered your
"invisible means of support."
my website, there are specific examples of how listening to my inner
guidance brought successful results to my business. Again, in the
section entitled Amazing, review “The Universe - My Marketing
Department" and “The Universe - My Talent Agency."
3. Attitude of Gratitude
have heard that over and over again, haven't you? But do you live it?
Well, start now. The "attitude of gratitude" is one of the greatest -
perhaps THE greatest - spiritual principle that can be applied to
attain happiness, inner peace, health and financial prosperity. But
there is an aspect of gratitude that most people do not know about. It
is easy to be grateful for what you already have. But can you be
grateful for what you don't yet see?
giving thanks NOW for your new clients, your increased business and
income, your new job, and inspired new ideas. I promise if you will
maintain your state of gratitude, they will come, and often at a speed
that will astound you. Give thanks now for the Universal guidance that
led you this article that contains truly life-changing elements.
4. Your Business or Job Is NOT Your Source of Income
bet you’ll read that again. But that's right. Your business is not your
source of income. Your clients are not your source of income. Your job
is not your source of income. Even your savings or investments are not
your source of income.
is only one source of income. That source is The Source - that
Universal intelligence that you may refer to as Universe, God, Infinite
Intelligence, Divine Mind, Spirit, All That Is, The Field of All
Possibilities. All of those other avenues are "channels" of income, but
they are not the source. Think of it this way. If your kitchen faucet
was broken and prevented you from getting water, would that mean there
was no more water? Of course not. You could find water at in your
bathroom or from any number of other faucets. So you see, the kitchen
faucet is not the source of water; it is only one of innumerable
soon as you learn to align yourself with, rely on and trust The Source
for your income (and clients and jobs and every other good thing you
could possibly desire), then all of the channels will be opened for you
to receive your good. How many channels? Limitless channels. There are
thousands and thousands of channels through which your good can come to
you. It is not your job to know them. It is your job to trust your
Source and as you do, both expected and unexpected channels will open
and clients and jobs and ideas will increasingly come to you "out of
the blue." So release all ideas that your income and business must be
derived from only one particular channel.
