Abundance. What does the word mean to you? Generally speaking, when we talk of abundance we see it as a state of having plenty of wealth and living a luxurious life. That is, however, a limited way of understanding abundance.
Being physically rich is only a form of abundance. Abundance is alive in the Universe in many forms.
We tend to think of abundance as equalling great wealth simply because having a lot of money seems to be the solution to many of our challenges, plus it satisfies our desires. The problem is that material wealth is not actually the ultimate solution to everything, it comes with its own limitations. It does not always give us what we are looking for spiritually or existentially. It does not necessarily bring happiness. Money can’t buy love or health.
That’s why it’s best to open your mind and heart to more than just material wealth, to include other kinds of abundance also.
Think about it, what is the meaning of true abundance?
Isn’t it that feeling of joy when you know you have an abundance of health, relationships, talents, knowledge, happiness, peace, and vitality? It is that marvelous feeling of living a well-rounded and fulfilling life with a sense of purpose in every moment. An overflowing sense of wholeness.
In this world we humans have created a kind of negative programming that seems to embody the opposite of abundance consciousness.
It’s the idea that:
- There isn’t enough for all of us
- You can never get enough
- You must always be chasing after something
- You must always be trying to avoid something else
- Be constantly afraid because you can never be truly safe
And so on…
The truth is that abundance consciousness is available to us and exists in the Universe all around us.
It is in the magnificent Earth we live on. In the green and luscious forests, jungles, and meadows. It is the oceans and rivers and lakes. It is the array of species that live in this world with us, from the tiniest colorful hummingbird to the blue whale. It is the sunlight every morning as you open your eyes and the laughter of children. It is the stars in the sky and the miracles of every cell in our own human bodies.
Our universe is magical and provides us with constant reminders of the true nature of abundance.
We need not go looking for it in earnest, it is all around us at all times and there is really no such thing as scarcity. No such thing as lack.
There is only a lack of consciousness.
Take some time today to look around you and observe the true wondrous abundance that exists in the world. Embrace the concept of unlimited abundance and know that means you truly can manifest anything that you desire.
The key to tapping into this abundance consciousness is in understanding the flow of sharing and giving. Your own positive actions and good thoughts create more abundance in the form of your desires and dreams. When you share your unique gifts and talents with the rest of humanity, you create a positive stream of energy that magnetizes more abundance back to you.
Think about the following ways that you can increase your connection to abundance:
Fear is a big obstacle to natural flowing abundance in your life. It can stop you from living to your highest potential. If you are scared to truly be the best version of yourself, you may have low expectations and never fully be true to who you are. If you are creative but never follow up on your talents, or if you have a niggling urge to do something but are too afraid to do it, you may never effectively channel your energy in the direction of abundance. Decide to cultivate confidence, courage and empower yourself within to tackle your problems and follow your dreams.
A positive state of mind filled with emotions such as love, gratitude, compassion, kindness and happiness is one that attracts abundance. When you make the effort to make positivity your default setting, your natural state of mind, you will become a magnet for more positive energies and abundance. Make an effort to think before you criticize, practice empathy and understanding, and always check in with yourself for a grounded, mindful response to any situation.
Being grateful is one of the best ways to tap into the abundance that surrounds us all. When you feel appreciation and gratitude for your life, you attract more things to be grateful for. Make lists of things you are grateful for and be sure to stop and appreciate your surroundings each day.
When we meditate regularly we practice tapping into abundance consciousness through bringing stillness and quiet to our minds. Even just for a few minutes, that practice of tuning into yourself on a deep level helps develop mindfulness, centers your thoughts, and focus and slows your breathing to benefit your nervous system. All of those things help keep you vibrating higher and aligned to the frequency with the true abundance of the universe.
