Yogi Bhajan had much to say on the subject of prosperity. And like many great teachers, he emphasized that prosperity must begin on the inside. A person can have all of the money, fame, and trappings of wealth without having what can rightly be called prosperity. When one’s internal attitude is out of alignment, it doesn’t matter what that person has or doesn’t have in the material world.
Yogi Bhajan said that prosperity “is like a rosebud when it flowers and opens up, and shares its fragrance…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.” Prosperity begins with our internal attitude, and flows outwardly. When we connect with an internal attitude of prosperity, we become like a magnet. The abundance of the universe flows to us without stopping.
Yogi Bhajan taught 3 Laws of Prosperity, which if put into practice will adjust your attitude completely.
- Be kind to everyone.
- Never speak ill of others.
- Never speak ill of yourself.
When we are unkind to others, when we gossip or begrudge the good fortune of other people, we are reinforcing the idea that there is not enough. Not enough happiness, success, wealth, etc. for all people. When we speak badly of ourselves, we are closing ourselves off to our inherent connection to the universe and to the divine.
Yogi Bhajan gave many meditations that can help us to adjust our attitudes towards prosperity. One beautiful meditation is called You Are A Spiritual Being with Unlimited Potential. Guruchander Singh Khalsa says that this meditation will help you to “focus on your true identity as a spiritual being with unlimited potential and self-worth.” Practicing this meditation for 120 days will radically shift your attitude to one of expansion and prosperity.
POSTURE: Sit in Easy Pose.
MUDRA: Bring the thumbs to touch the mound of the Mercury finger (pinkie) and fold the fingers over the thumb to make tight fists. Bring the forearms parallel to the floor at the Heart Center. Knuckles face each other with a one-inch gap between the hands.
EYE FOCUS: Focus the eyes on the tip of the nose.
MANTRA: Chant HAR 4 times out loud, 4 times in a whisper continuously. Make sure the tongue flicks up to the upper palate.
TIME: 11-21 minutes.
COMMENTS: This meditation contains the ego and allows you to focus on your true identity as a spiritual being with unlimited potential and self-worth. When we put the thumb (ego) at the mound of the Mercury finger, we transform our ego identity through the influence of Mercury, Sun, Saturn and Jupiter. This transformation includes mastering expansion (Jupiter), wisdom and patience (Saturn), endurance (Sun) and communication (Mercury) towards our spiritual identity. We use the mantra HAR to bring new opportunities into our life. By creating mastery at the Heart Center, we can transform our passion and heart energy into personal and financial success within our spiritual life. Remember—doing meditations creates the opportunity to change our attitudes towards our world. When you do this meditation for at least 120 days, your subconscious can shift into a larger, more expansive attitude about being prosperous (pro-spirit).
