“Prosperity doesn’t mean that you will have wealth, health and happiness. The best way to explain prosperity is to say it is like when a rosebud flowers and opens up, and it shares its fragrance. That’s the moment, which lasts a few days, when a rose flower is prosperous. When a man or woman is prosperous, it is the fragrance of security, grace, depth, character, and truthfulness that a person can share. Like a candle emits light, a human emits prosperity.”
–Yogi Bhajan, 12/26/97 from Success and the Spirit: An Aquarian Path to Prosperity.
To support me during the Venus retrograde transit, I decided to do a 40 day sadhana. I chose a meditation on prosperity because Venus is not only the ruler of love, but also governs money and I felt I could use some support in my financial prosperity. Tomorrow will be the last of my 40 days. Interestingly, some notable developments in both arenas (love and finances) have come to me during the this 40 day span that I feel are a direct result of my commitment to this daily practice. First, a new business opportunity has come up for me and second, two nights ago, I experienced the most swift resolution of conflict that I have ever witnessed, in what could have been a major catastrophe with the potential to radically alter my life for the worse depending on how I chose to respond.
I have found myself being called to stretch my comfort zone, to reach and grow to new heights in this business opportunity, and I will discuss that part later in a separate blog. I also found that I handled a difficult personal situation with such wisdom and grace that I even surprised myself. I knew I had a choice in what I wanted to feel in response to some jarring news, and I chose to feel HOPE and focus on what could go RIGHT instead of what could go WRONG.
I attribute this almost magical shift in perception to me showing up for myself in this daily practice for 40 days, and I wanted to share the meditation in case it resonates with you. It is a combination of chanting and specific hand movements and you can find instructions here: https://www.3ho.org/meditation-prosperity-ii-har-har
The following is a link I often use that includes instructions, music to follow along to and both the Adi Mantra and the Mangala Charan mantras at the start so that you may fisrt tune in to your higher self: https://soundcloud.com/jaidev108/lfa-40-day-prosperity-full-kriya-11-min/s-yoCmn
Lastly, here is my very favorite music to do this meditation to. I always tune in with at least the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo) before meditating to this. It is my sincere wish that this helps someone else as much as it has helped me. If so, please leave me a comment and share the love!
