Four Sacred Phrases for Success (to say on repeat!)

Why do some people have successful businesses and abundant finances? Why do some companies flourish?

Here is a one-sentence secret to prosperity: The root of success comes from the heart and soul.

Following the teachings of traditional Chinese medicine, you can tap into the life-changing power of four sacred phrases to guide you in transforming not only your finances, but also your career, health and relationships.

These four sacred phrases can be used to heal your financial well-being:

1. Qi dao xue dao: Energy (qi) arrives, blood arrives.
2. Yi dao qi dao: Thinking arrives, energy arrives.
3. Xin dao yi dao: Heart arrives, consciousness arrives.
4. Ling dao xin dao: Soul or spirit arrives, heart arrives.

1. Qi Dao Xue Dao

Qi dao xue dao (pronounced chee dow shooeh dow) means energy (qi) arrives, (then) blood arrives. For 5,000 years, this sacred phrase has been the key principle in traditional Chinese medicine for healing all kinds of sickness.

Qi is energy. Blood is matter. The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic, the authority book of traditional Chinese medicine, states: If qi flows, blood flows. If qi is blocked, blood is stagnant. In traditional Chinese medicine, all sickness, diseases, emotional imbalances, mental disorders and more are due to blockages of qi and blood. Qi dao xue dao is the key for healing all sickness in traditional Chinese medicine.

What does this have to do with your finances and business?

In ancient spiritual teachings, there is profound wisdom that everyone and everything in the universe consists of jing qi shen. Jing means matter. Qi means energy. Shen means soul. Your body is made of jing qi shen. A tree is made of jing qi shen. The Earth is made of jing qi shen. And so it follows that your financial well-being is made of jing qi shen.

Qi dao xue dao teaches us that qi leads jing. In fact, qi is the boss of jing. Jing and qi are yin and yang. Many people understand ancient wisdom about yin and yang. They understand that yin and yang are two. They may not understand that yin and yang are also one. Yin and yang are complementary, interconnected and interdependent. Qi and jing must work together to ensure the success of your business or finances.

How can you apply this sacred wisdom to business?

During your work day, spend three minutes silently chanting qi dao xue dao. This chant gives a message to the qi of your business to lead and a message to the jing of your business to follow. Your qi will lead better and your jing will follow better. Affirming this message by chanting it could bring your business remarkable blessings.

2. Yi Dao Qi Dao

Yi dao qi dao (pronounced ee dow chee dow) means thinking arrives, (then) energy arrives. This is the relationship of the mind and qi. This is mind over matter.

Yi dao qi dao is a one-sentence secret to train your consciousness. Mind leads energy. Mind is the boss of energy. When you focus your consciousness on some part of your business, energy will flow there and then matter will follow. Mind drives energy and matter for your financial flourishing. Consciousness is important. But, in my opinion, consciousness is not enough. Mind over matter is not enough. We have to involve the heart and soul to truly transform business and finances.

3. Xin Dao Yi Dao

Xin dao yi dao (pronounced sheen dow ee dow) means heart arrives, (then) mind arrives. The heart is the core of life. The heart is the receiver of messages from the soul. The heart digests, absorbs and passes the soul’s messages to consciousness, which is mind. The heart leads consciousness. Mind is the processor.

Xin dao yi dao tells us that the heart is the boss of consciousness. When the heart thinks, things can manifest. This happens through the sacred process of xin dao yi dao, yi dao qi dao, qi dao xue dao. The heart leads mind, mind leads energy, energy leads matter.

How does this apply to business? The key is to develop business from the heart and soul first, then pass it to the mind. To transform business and finances, purify and open your heart.

4. Ling Dao Xin Dao

Ling dao xin dao (pronounced ling dow sheen dow) means message arrives, (then) heart arrives. To heal any sickness, use soul power to give a positive message that is loving, forgiving, compassionate, humble, and harmonious. The same principle applies in business and finances. The message for business must be loving, clear and serve a good purpose.

The soul of your finances is like the roots of a tree. If the roots are not healthy, the tree cannot grow. Heal the soul of your finances, and your life will flourish.
