When I asked him what Abundance meant to him he answered “Winning Lotto”
This is how the conversation went…..
Him: Because I would have a million dollars.
Me: What for?
Him: For whatever I want. (getting cranky now)
Me: What do you want?
Him: I don’t know….a million dollars
Me: But what would you do with it- what would you do
– what would you buy?
Him: Whatever I want.
LOTS of people do this…have the wish for “something more” but don’t know what that “something” is. Why?? I think it is the point I made earlier about believing you deserve abundance. My Husband doesn’t actually believe he will ever win Lotto because “People like him don’t win Lotto” so of course he doesn’t.
I KNOW what my abundance looks like. (Made real by my vision board)
I have decided that I am going to create many vision boards –one for the big things and kind of like a “sub-boards” off the main board. For example…on my board is a wish to redecorate our unit. I am creating a separate board with the things I see for our unit…the furniture, the appliances the linen on the bed.
Today’s mantra….I can have my abundance in detail. I can see, taste and feel it all around me.
Following on from yesterday’s post about belief, I find that a vision board helps me focus on how I imagine my abundance and helps me trully believe in what I am inviting.
I have been making “vision boards” in some form for years before i knew what they were. My school diaries were littered with pictures of things I dreamt about. Whether it was a cute new top or my first little bomb of a car.
My current vision board has not been updated in quite some time and to my surprise I have found that pretty well acheived everything on that board. This may explain why I have been flat and feeling without purpose for the past 6 months or so….. I have not invited anything new into my adundance. of course I know i should NOT be surprised…because that is what vision boards do, they are a concrete, focused way of inviting your dreams.
Today’s mantra is BELIEF I read an article recently that said…
“In order to receive we have to feel that we deserve to receive”
This got me thinking…do I really believe that I deserve true abundance??
I ( like a lot of people) have had friends and famiky that have tried to squash
my dreams and aspirations. After a few decades this is bound to sink in and
affect the psyche.
How to break the cycle of limiting one’s own dreams??
To affect lasting change in our feelings of worthiness we must allow ourselves to connect with our essential self, that knows beyond all and every doubt that we are deserving of the very best at all times. We must also be ruthlessly honest with ourselves recognising and admitting when we are behaving against our better judgement to seek approval from others or when we are betraying ourselves by giving too much credence to the limiting voices of self judgement in our heads.
My mission today is to re-affirm to myself that I trully deserve the abundance I
I AM worthy and I believe that abundance will come. “The thing always happens that you really believe in and the belief in a thing makes it happen” – Frank Lloyd Wright
That is the loaded question 🙂 According to the dictionary…
1. an extremely plentiful or oversufficient quantity or supply: an abundance of grain.
2. overflowing fullness: abundance of the heart.
3. affluence; wealth: the enjoyment of abundance.
For the purposes of this blog, my “abundance” is to have an abundant life. I am inviting an abundance of love ,wealth and happiness.
I am starting by giving thanks for the abundance i already have.
Thank You for great friends and wonderful family
Thank You for a business which is growing and will provide the abundance i am inviting.
Thank You for a perfect location to live and be abundant in.
Today I invite abundance…..
