We've all faced a period of lacking in our lives. You know, when you feel like you're lacking in money, lacking in time, or lacking in great experiences. Whether your rough period had to do with money, boredom, or something else entirely, you know what it's like to yearn for more.
Wouldn't it be nice to never feel like that again? How wonderful would it be to always feel like you're swimming in a sea of abundance?
I'm going to let you in on a little secret - abundance doesn't have anything to do with your bank account or your long list of responsibilities. Instead, abundance is a state of mind that you can put to good use anytime, anywhere.
How do you do that?
All you have to do is choose to see "more than enough"!
For some people, though, that can be really tough. After all, lots of us are so used to focusing on what we don't have that it sounds impossible to switch gears and focus on what we do have.
But here's another secret - changing your mindset isn't as hard as you think. All you need is a little bit of practice. Eventually, you'll automatically adopt an abundance mindset in every situation!
First, though, you've got to pay close attention to the thoughts that are racing around inside your head. If you're constantly thinking that you don't have enough, you'll actually start to believe that you have less than you really do!
So, the next time you hear yourself slipping into thoughts of lack, think about abundance instead.
- When you really want to buy something, but you don't have enough money for it...
- When you feel unfulfilled by your job...
- When you're sitting around feeling bored...
- When you wish you could meet that one great guy/girl to share your life with...
- When you wish that your life had a bigger purpose...
Think about what you do have right now. Think about the place you call home, the car you drive, the great friendships you have, and the good health that allows you to get out of bed every morning. When you look at it that way, you've got an awful lot! You've got a whole lot more than some people.
As you make a mental list of all those wonderful things, say to yourself (out loud if you have to!) that you have "more than enough". Because the truth is, you actually have more than you need. You've got everything you need to survive, and that alone is a remarkable blessing.
Of course, you're allowed to want even bigger and better things. Focusing on abundance doesn't mean you stop working toward other goals. However, when you focus on the abundance of good things that you already have, you'll start to attract even more blessings!
Want your abundance to grow even more?
Just give things some additional thought. For example, there may be certain situations that make you feel powerless. However, if you sit down and really think about them, you may be able to come up with a solution. Think about what small steps you could take to improve things. Then, bundle all of those little steps together to make a big difference!
One final tip - you should feel joyful and lighthearted when you focus on abundance. This should be a process that makes you feel good, not scared or desperate. The key is to trust in your ability to create more for yourself. And, remember, the universe is willing to help you, too. As long as you trust in the process, you really will end up with "more than enough" of everything you could possibly want!
Ready to stretch your thinking a bit?
Here's something for you to ponder today...
It comes from Wallace D. Wattles' book A New Christ:
"All things are made from, and made of, one living intelligent substance; One Mind, and you are that Mind. Therefore, you are the substance from which all things are made, and you are also the Power which makes and forms; you are wealth and abundance, for you are all there is."
