Listen to this podcast
Hi this is Joan and this is episode 48 of The Prosperity Show. Thanks for tuning in. Today we're going to talk about opening yourself to receive. But before we get to that, our main site is prosperityplace.com, where you can find lots of free information to help you improve your relationship with money and yourself. I also want to thank everybody who responded to the power word show I did our last podcast, telling me how they used the power word, and the results they got. And quite frankly I was really surprised and really excited that it had such a wonderful effect for you. I know that it works for me, and I'll have to admit that I didn't test it with that many people, because I knew the Be Set Free Fast, which it was based on, worked, and it made since to me that an abbreviated version should work just as well. And it certainly did. So if you haven't listened to the power word technique episode, it's episode #47, and there's lots of information and links to Be Set Free Fast, and other energy psychology techniques.

I was, it was a Sunday morning and I was at the spiritual gathering where I go on Sundays, it's called the Celebration, and it's a place that honors all paths. There is no minister, it's all put on by the congregation, so people from the congregation participate in all the different parts of the service. We have lots of music and a reading, that sort of thing. Anyhow, as the people were coming up to the podium, I heard myself doing this judgment stuff in my head, what they were wearing, how they were talking, all that sort of stuff, I'm sure you know what I mean. And I thought to myself, I just really don't want to do this anymore. And I just kind of took a deep breath and this phrase came into my head, which was, "I'm grateful for the gift of every moment." Let me repeat that. I'm grateful for the gift of every moment. And I realized by saying that it suddenly brought my focus into the moment and stopped whatever judgment, because I suddenly was looking for the gift. Which is a pretty happy outlook. I know there's a gift here, what is it, it's like the joke with the kid who saw a pile of manure and said, there must be a pony. And what I saw as the week went by as I kept doing this for various reasons or just any time any kind of negative stuff came into my head, I would just do, "I'm grateful for the gift of every moment," and I would begin...
