The Seven Simple Principles of Prosperity
Practical Exercises to Achieve a Rich, Happy and Joyous Life
by Oreste J. D'Aversa

What would it mean to you to find unlimited financial abundance happiness and joy, beyond your imagination?  What if I told you that you have the ability to make that all happen…and more?  Would you believe it's all free and you can do it any time you want?

We are going to examine The Seven Simple Principles of Prosperity.  Prosperity takes many different forms: The Physical - Money, Health, Possessions; The Mental (or Mind) - Intelligence, Reasoning, Clarity of Thought; The Emotional - Love, Relationships, Giving of One's Self; The Spiritual - A Positive Relationship with God (The Universe, Spirit or whatever your personal relationship is with a Higher Power), Giving Something Back to Mankind, Performing Your “Work” or Mission while you are in this time and this place.

           Let us examine The Seven Simple Principles of Prosperity:


The past is just that - the past.  We cannot go back into the past and change the events we have experienced.  The past is not an indicator of our future; it is just the past.  Yet many times people use the past to project what will happen in their future.  By letting go of your past you are opening yourself to unlimited possibilities for a new and exciting future.  Imagine your future with you reaching for any goal you desire and achieving that goal.  How would that make you feel?

The past with its memories - some good and some not so good - had its purpose in your life.  Many times we do not understand that purpose while we are going through that experience. However upon closer examination, you will find that the past has served you well, giving you the necessary experience that brought you to this point.  Learn from your past, then let it go, and prepare yourself for a bright, happy and joyous future. 

Let go of the past and accept the gift which has been given to you - The Present.  The Past is history, The Future is promised to no one, and The Present is here now! 

Principle 2: MEDITATION

It is unfortunate there are so many misconceptions about Meditation.  Some think that special words are required to be said in a certain way, or that a certain manner of sitting is necessary in order to meditate.  All that is needed is silence.  The silence need not be outside of you, rather inside of you.  In meditation you are seeking the quiet within your mind.  By meditating you are aligning your Mind, your Body and your Spirit to function together.

Meditation is an excellent exercise to manage stress.  So many diseases have their root causes based in stress related behaviors such as overeating causing obesity leading to heart disease, smoking causing cancer and various other addictions that lead to other diseases. By Mediating daily you will find you will be able to manage your day-to-day issues easily and calmly.  You will be placing life's challenges into their proper prospective.

Starting Meditating today and watch your life change for the better.  You will be calmer, be better able to deal with life and people and be much happier than you ever have been in the past.


Visualization is your first step to manifesting all that you need, want and desire in life.  Even these very words that you read started as visualization before they were created.  Whatever you want to create, see it first in your mind, then watch it be created in the physical world.  Want more money? See and feel yourself as being wealthy.  While this not an instant phenomenon, if you can see it and believe it, you can create it with the power of Visualization.

The power of Visualization is so strong that many people are able to change unwanted behaviors like smoking, overeating, alcoholism, drug addiction and the like.  Some people have been known to heal themselves using Visualization.  Visualization is a skill. Like any skill, all you need to do is learn and practice and in no time you will master that skill.

Principle 4: SPIRITUALITY 

Call it what you will - God, The Universe or Your Higher Self; the ability to connect to a source higher than your own. This has been the pursuit of humankind since the beginning of recorded history.  Why am I here?  What is my purpose? Do I matter?  The answer to all your questions will come to you when you connect with your Spirituality.

Spirituality can be praying to God, talk to your Angels, Meditating, connecting with nature and many other ways.  There are many methods to connect with Spirit. Just choose the one that is right for you and watch for the answers come to you.  How will you know? You will know things without knowing.  Sounds strange…but try it and see for yourself by unlocking the power of Spirituality!

Principle 5: EXERCISE

Physical Exercise has far reaching benefits.  In exercising the body it promotes health and wellness of the Mind, Body and Spirit.  Exercise also gives us another mechanism to deal with stress. It also gives us the ability to manage anger.

When we talk about public service we mean helping others.  No one becomes successful by themselves. Public service can take on so many different forms.  Helping those less fortunate than you by offering your time; or if time is a problem, you can give money.  By giving money you increase the circulation of prosperity in your life and the life of others.

Give something back to society.  It does not have to be elaborate or expensive.  We all have clothes that we outgrow or no longer wear.  Take those clothes and donate them to a charity. Donate that clothing to a local charity in your area.  Don't just throw them in a bag; hang them up properly or better yet, get them cleaned, so that the recipient is honored to receive your gift.  You will be amazed the people you will help and how you will feel knowing you have made a positive impact on some one else's life.

          Public Service the more your give the more you receive. 

Principle 7: LOVE

In discussing Love we do not mean physical love; rather, emotional love, starting with the Love of one's self, one's family, friends, community and ultimately, mankind.  If one does not have love for oneself, how can you have Love for others?  How can you give away something you do not own? Let your love ripple out from you as the ripples in a pond when a stone is thrown, for if all of us are radiant with love, our world would be a better place for ourselves and our future generations.

How does Love help with prosperity?  Love what you do and help others achieve their goals, and watch money and financial abundance come to you!  In demonstrating your Love for mankind it will come back to you in so many different ways.  Love is just another way for prosperity to manifest itself in your life.

The Seven Simple Principles of Prosperity will bless your life with wealth, abundance and happiness. All you need to do is practice these simple exercises and your life will never be the same!

I wish you much prosperity, joy and happiness!
