8 Ways to Create an Abundant Mindset!

Updated: July 1, 2019

Did you know that you live in an abundant universe where prosperity and wealth are your birthright? Well, you do! In my Weekly Oracle Card Guidance and Lesson, the cards show us that we are looking at prosperity in a big way this week. 

I know it’s sometimes hard to see the abundance in our lives, especially in today’s changing world where few of us have been untouched by economic concerns. But, even during tough times, we still have everything we need and more. In fact, prosperity can be ours no matter what’s going on in our lives and around us. It’s all a matter of the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs we CHOOSE to live by. 

There’s no doubt that we’re living in times of unprecedented transformation, challenge, and opportunity. Both on a personal and global level, we’re being called to higher consciousness. As part of this metamorphosis, each of us is being invited to redefine what wealth and prosperity mean in our lives. 

Many of us have tended to view terms such as wealth, rich, and prosperous as something outside of us that which we’ll eventually experience when we finally get more than what we have now. But, the truth is, wealth starts from WITHIN us! Prosperity isn’t about what you have; it’s a state of mind and being. It’s what you value, the thoughts you think, and the beliefs that you hold, that determine the riches in your life.

My road to prosperous living was by no means direct. I struggled in my 20s with addictions and used a variety of things—alcohol, shopping, drugs, food, men, and so on—to fill what I felt was a void inside me. It wasn’t until I embraced the Divine within me that I was able to become clean and sober. With that recognition of the ever-present power of Spirit within me. I let go of my focus on things. I became more giving, worked harder for the higher good, and acted with more faith, compassion, and forgiveness. The more I transformed on the inside, the more the Universe showed me it was possible for me to live prosperously. In this week’s Oracle Card reading, The Golden Palace card reminds us to dig down and focus on the roots of our abundance and that what is grounded is more important than what is above ground. This week is about our understanding and learning what is in the highest good for our abundance and prosperity.

With that, I’d like to share with you my top eight insights on prosperity that have made the greatest difference in my life.

  1. Create your personal definition of what it means to live prosperously. While our culture has tended to look at prosperity as meaning having lots of money, the truth is, it involves much, much more. You are prosperous to the degree that you are living a full, satisfying life. What does this kind of life look like to you?
  2. Know that you deserve to live prosperously no matter what. Many of us have been lead to believe that we don’t deserve happy, abundant lives. Others of us have been taught that wealth is bad; somehow it’s more heroic to struggle in life. This isn’t true! Prosperity is divinely ordained for each of us, for it enables us to live our lives to the fullest.
  3. You get what you see. The more you observe and bless the prosperity and wealth you have in your life now, the more you have. The more you observe scarcity and not enough, the more you create the experience of not enough. So, it’s crucial that you pay attention to the economy of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs! I also highly recommend keeping a gratitude journal to help you train yourself to see the abundance in your life.
  4. You can’t get something for nothing. While your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are a major part of living prosperity, so are the actions you take. As I like to say, you can’t be an armchair astronaut! Your business isn’t going to just come together if you’re sitting at home on your couch. You have to take steps to find the fantastic friends/partner you want, apply and network for the perfect job, take steps to good health, ask for a raise, and so on. If you want a fulfilling life you must continue to take action on your dreams, knowing that the Universe will support your hard work. 
  5. You can always give something. As with the old idea of tithing, the world is your church and distributing your wealth to others ensures the flow continues. I’m not necessarily referring to donating money, but giving your service and generosity to others. Remember, you can only keep what you’re willing to give! And, there is always something you can give.
  6. Create space for your dreams. One of my favorite books on prosperity is The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder. One of the points she makes is the importance of making room in your life for what you want by getting rid of what you don’t want. So, it might be time to let go of the clothes and furniture that no longer suit you, or even say goodbye (with love) to any people in your life who no longer feed your soul. Nature abhors a vacuum, so when you begin to move out what is no longer right for you, you make space for the greater good to come in.
  7. Trust in the support of the Universe. Remember that self-will alone isn’t enough to make things happen. While it sometimes might seem like things are being withheld from us, it’s usually because something better is in store. For example, we might be laid off from a job we hate in order to create the space needed to get one we love.
  8. Invite the Divine to bring miracles into your life. We all co-create our lives with the Divine. As you continue to take action on the above, you must surrender your desires to Spirit, and trust that they will be fulfilled for the highest good of all and for the true manifestation of your purpose in Divine appropriate timing. One of my favorite exercises is to write a letter to Spirit in which I share my desires and affirm my commitment to working towards them. Then, I surrender it all to the Divine with trust that what is mine will not go past me. Try it now!

Our Weekly Oracle Card Reading this week ended with a special appearance from Grasshopper Spirit to remind us to take all of this information about prosperity and abundance, get grounded with it, and then to take a leap of faith! Remember, we are all rich people living in a world full of infinite treasures. There’s not only enough to go around, but there’s also endless abundance. Nothing is missing for you. Even if you feel you’ve lost something, remember that you’re making room for something better to come. The Universe is full of amazing possibilities and actually wants to support your highest good!

    Collette and team, your blog this week is so helpful, and I am attempting to answer each question now. However, I always struggle with what is meant by ‘surrender your desire to spirit’. Does that mean acknowledge your desire, write to Spirit, but let it go as it may not be in my/highest good’s best interest?

    Dear Colette
    This is OUR month!!🧚🏽‍♀️🎶
    I love that the cards you drew for this weeks’ forecast speak of abundance. I’ve been gardening a lot this past few weeks (and even more now that the dragonflies are here to help keep a handle on the black fly crowds!) and this act always brings me teachings of abundance. In our climate, things must grow fast and furiously in order to come to fruition. I never cease to be amazed at how a plant will double and triple in size within what seems like a day or two.
    I am delighted as I find hidden treasure in the edges of the garden – the tiny red jewels that are wild strawberries, full and ripe and bursting with flavour.
    Several of my most important green allies grow like crazy this time of year- Dandelion, Burdock, and Nettles. These nourishing herbs are so abundant that I can collect some to have over the long winter months.
    I love what you said about ” what is my purpose” and followed that with speaking about being the right kind of teacher. I hadn’t thought of it that way, but I’d say that sums up my ” why” as well.
    If I pay close attention, all I need is here surrounding me, and within me . Even the teachings I may share with those who are sent my way are often delivered by the nature surrounding me and by listening to the vastness within..
    Thank you Colette, for your diligence, grace and beauty in always being the teacher I learn from, and with.
    Here’s to July, here’s to abundance and here’s to investing in and maintaining a clear and loving purpose. 💖
    All ways. 🐚

    I love your decks Colette. They are absolutely magical! Thank you for all you do. I read your blog for this week and it really resonates.


  • Rochelle Perkins

    This is beautiful! I was feeling stuck and this helped to put perspective on what I am feeling, at the moment. I’m continuing with my journey with a renewed outlook!
    Thank you!

    Dear Colette
    You are most kind, generous, full of wisdom and intelligent .
    You are congruent within your actions and readings.
    I must admit I’ve been benefiting from your weekly oracles and haven’t made the appropriate actions to add my cards and comments to you . For that I must send you an apology.
    I wait for Sunday to come to see your beautiful face with anticipation that my week will be awesome. I listen and re listen mid week to touch base with and again I review at the end of the wk.
    I love the guidance and I manifest so easily but I am an armchair Manifester.
    I have more to give.
    I’ve been blessed with a relationship to water and manifesting through water.
    I’ll do better
    I’ll share my video with the public
    I’ll be more active and stop hoarding my gifts.
    Much love and thank you. Thank you!!

    Thank you, Colette for sharing those wonderful insights and exercises. They were just what I needed to be reminded of today. I sometimes get caught up in TRYING (by taking actions) so hard that I forget that there is an easier way. Surrender and Faith IS key. I will to will, Thy will.💚

  • DTaborah

    Another grand way to start my week many thx. Fear of abundance fear of success time… to re-evaluate and see abundance through this lens you so generously shared with us. Step by step

  • Renee Sugar

    Thank you so much for this Colette. This information is so well-timed and I am currently working on that letter to Spirit. Once I started to write it things became more clear. Sometimes we don’t know what we desire or haven’t even considered other options. What is key is remember though is to not wait until _____ happens to feel the good vibrations, energy and excitement . Emotion is a barometer if the doorway, choice is a good one. Always loved Deborah Kings’ quote; ” Does it tire/
    inspire you??” Great question to ask. I am approaching this letter as a way to re-create what moves my heart. Too accustomed to talking from the intellect, practical mindset. I always love Dr. Joe Dispenza when he says the HOW is none of my business. If you can give me Spirit’s forwarding address, I will send the letter priority post, but no hurry of course!!! Lots of Love

  • Katharine Mary

    You are awesomeness personified! 🥰🙏🏻😇
