The Prosperous Life

Program Overview

Many people face the challenge of understanding how to live a more abundant life. They are confused about their finances and misunderstand the guidance given by other “money-centered” television and radio programs.

The Prosperous Life takes the spiritual approach to abundant living. We begin by defining the true nature of prosperity. Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, not just having more money and things. A prosperous life has to include joy and happiness, a healthy body and a personal relationship with Spirit. Living prosperously isn’t just a monetary goal. It is a spiritual goal.

This program is brought to you by Center for Spiritual Living—Kansas City.

    It’s been said that women can be their own worst enemy when it comes to prosperity. Do women get paid less than men because they are willing to accept less?

    From starting kindergarten to going to college, getting married or having a baby, rites of passage are important in our lives.

Chris Yamas is with us again—the young motivational speaker who manifested an opportunity to meet President Obama in spite of what appeared to be insurmountable obstacles and is now starting college across the country from his hometown.

    Episode Description:
    Dr. Ernest Holmes taught us that there is really nothing to heal except at the level of our thought. Healing is not about just making something better; it’s about shifting our thinking so that the conditions of our lives respond in Truth. Little children know how to spontaneously heal. Most of us growing up have been “err-conditioned” (conditioned toward erroneous thinking). We discuss with Dr. Cynthia Cavalcanti-Neale, of the Center for Spiritual Living in Fremont, California, how to consciously focus our thoughts on the Truth about ourselves to find our healing nature.

    One of the biggest reasons that we don’t get where we'd like to be in our lives is that we continually get in our own way.
