Prosperity Flows: The Mantra That Works!
Prosperity can be defined as not simply having the abundance you need to fulfill your needs, but to realize that all your needs are pre-fulfilled.
Yogi Bhajan, the master teacher of Kundalini Yoga, said this about prosperity: “Success, happiness, and constant prosperity are the result of mastering the mind.”
In some way, what we need are not things, or money or even opportunities to experience prosperity, but to develop a state of consciousness, a mastery of the mind, through mantra and meditation that recognizes in each moment the presence of everything we need to fulfill our destiny.
One who lives to their destiny does so because they have planted a seed that has the potency to manifest the fruit of their efforts through their ability to recognize that prosperity is not something that is forthcoming but is already quietly waiting for their recognition.
This recognition, or the ability to see what is already there, can come about when we redirect the Mind from its usual patterns and preconceptions.
The most powerful tool we have to re-direct the Mind is mantra, a Sanskrit word that can literally be translated as that which directs (“tra”) the mind (“man” or “manas”).
In Kundalini Yoga, a powerful mantra that can re-direct the mind in order to recognize that prosperity is already yours is:
HAR HARAY HAREE WAHE GURU
Har – the ability to manifest
Haray – the ever-open flow of growth and becoming
Haree – the harvesting of the seed that has been planted
Wahe Guru – the ecstasy that comes from this knowledge
This mantra may be chanted in a monotone, with the index fingers touching the thumb-tips (gyan mudra – the mudra of Jupiter and prosperity), with forearms held out in front of the torso and parallel to the earth, elbows resting against the rib cage, and palms open to receive.
Suggested Practice: 11-31 minutes for 40 to 90 days
“Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there.” – Yogi Bhajan
