How do you define abundance? Is it by something tangible, like a piece of jewelry, a job, a car, a nice home or money itself? Is it through feelings of accomplishment, of being provided for, feeling loved or loving someone? The science of physics establishes that with every action is a reaction and you live in a world where your actions are often rewarded with some object or feeling.
Often, abundance is equated with some sort of blessing be it tangible or intangible. The particulars vary depending upon the individual. What seems popular to agree upon is that abundance is something to be attained or acquired.
What if abundance is nothing like this at all? What if all the teachings about how abundance is a reflection of something good or to manifest abundance with techniques ie. “vision boards” of cars, houses, money, vacation destinations, happy, loving and healthy you, spouse and children have nothing to do with actual abundance?
The greatest mistake is that you measure abundance. For if you hold a bar as to what it looks like for you, then, the bar is certain to not include everyone. This is why you have pity for others that you perceive are not abundant or pity yourself and begin chiseling away your own self-worth. When you measure abundance, you judge it and when you judge abundance you distance yourself from truly allowing it to exist. You limit how abundance shows up.
You make abundance a human construct instead of the gift that it is from the Divine.
Abundance is not anything humanly possible to give or receive or create. It is not measured by actions that you do or do not do, nor is it measured by what you have or do not have. This is why the perception of having “it all” does not bring real happiness. Abundance does not come with a price tag that you must earn. Abundance is not dangling out there on a proverbial carrot waiting for you to jump through hoops or run races. This is why you possess feelings of not being good enough because abundance is perceived to not be in your possession. You stress and strive sometimes all your life, in order to reach a self-proclaimed measurement or fill an internal void.
Abundance is not outside of you, nor a feeling inside of you.
Abundance IS you.
Visualize going back to the moment you became a cell that began to multiply and become the group of cells that you are now. The smallest part of you possesses the most incredible action of coming into being and realizing your soul chose to be here in earthly presence is the only reaction. Acknowledge this explosion of creation and of your becoming because in honoring this miracle of creation you embrace that you are so amazing. No more self-imposed hamster wheels or keeping up with the Joneses in order to feel good about yourself. You already have it all since the moment you came into being.
Open your heart wide in the knowing of how incredible you are and always have been. No matter how many challenges you have been born into, never forget that your manifestation as an abundant being is yours. Your reason for being is to share your abundance by realizing you are enough.
