Do you have an Abundance Mindset or a Lack Mentality?
This blog post has been calling me to write it for so many months now, but I couldn't channel the perfect words to explain what was coming through. I think, also, there were a few last blocks of my own to clear in relation to this - because it triggered me every time I tried!
But I think I got it now...
And I write this with deep gratitude for all the beautiful souls, clients, friends, family, strangers, neighbours, mentors (and haters!) that have allowed me so many opportunities to grow and expand on this topic - as a result from our interactions, conversations and energy exchanges. (You may find a few familiarities as you read along, so yes - my words have been inspired by you beautiful one. And thank you.)
Abundance, abundance, abundance.
I am a magnet for abundance.
I welcome abundance and prosperity into my life.
Abundance flows into my life with ease and grace.
I know all of these, because I've used them as affirmations myself. But even if these are written on our bathroom mirror, stuck next to our bed or up in our Sacred Space - we may not have made room for this Abundance to flow in. These affirmations truly are beautiful, but if we want to speed things up a little, we need to bust through some blocks. Clear the way! Allow it in! I can see abundance flowing to you, it's all around you! But can you?
What even is Abundance to you?!
Can you feel it when you say it?
And are you feeling the right thing when you do?
Is it resistance or allowing?
Is Abundance in relation to copious amounts of money?
Plentifulness in regards to Health?
Time? Freedom? Friends? Possessions? Love?
1. a very large quantity of something, the state or condition of having a copious quantity of something; plentifulness
That you can have and want whatever you'd like in life, without guilt attached
That there is more than enough to go around for everybody
That you are not taking from anybody when you receive
That you can, and will, expand beyond any pre-conceived limitations you may have
That you can achieve all of your dreams and goals and desires, and then some - without having to compromise or sacrifice anything
That there is no cap, or limit in any area of your life
That the more you receive, the more you create 'out there' for others
That the more you receive, the more you can give.
(And isn't giving what we all want to do, deep down at our core?!)
So where do you sit?
Do you truly believe that there is enough to go around for everybody?
Or do you have fear, deep down, that when somebody else is succeeding, or doing well, or earning a lot of money - that they're taking away from you? From something you're trying to attain? Or receive? Or have?
There is no limit to abundance.
Again. There is no limit to abundance.
Abundance is the opposite to limitations. There's no imaginary pool of wealth and prosperity that others are dipping into, that lessens the quantity for you. Or that reduces the amount of Abundance that is rightfully yours. (And it is.) There is no bucket of money that you're taking from, that leaves nothing left for others. Actually, it's quite the opposite. It's forever being topped up. It's ever-expanding. Continually growing. Limitless. Infinite.
Did you feel that shift?
That is block clearing.
That is old patterns breaking.
That, is an Abundance Mindset.
An Abundance Mindset frees you. It is, authentically selfless. It allows you to truly want everybody to have everything they desire in life, and knowing you can too - plentifully! Another part we get stuck on, is believing we can have anything we truly want - because we can't see it with our physical eyes yet.
Why don't we believe?
This stems from our personal life experiences - and what we have seen in front of us. We set up belief systems from viewing what those around us are doing. From our 'reality'. But not everything you see with your physical eyes is truth.
"Many around you want to point out 'reality' to you. They say, 'face the facts. Look at what is.' And we say to you, if you are able to see only what IS - then, by Law of Attraction, you will create only more of what IS. You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what IS, in order to attract something different or something more. - Abraham Hicks
'See' with your Third Eye. Your Imagination Centre. The space where you visualise everything. This is the space where you create your dreams. This is the space where everything manifests from. This is the space from which you do the work. This is the space where Abundance resides.
Lack Mentality: Is this you?
Do you wish you could win the lottery? Or receive some large inheritance? I love Louise Hay's explanation on this. Fantasising about having this amount of prosperity in your life is fine, in fact it might be what you need to allow yourself to feel abundance, or believe it can be possible for you.
But hanging onto this idea far too strongly sets up a belief system within yourself that you could only ever have this much prosperity in your life, if it was through luck. You are much much more deserving of receiving prosperity, through many other platforms. This is not the only way you deserve to have an abundant life!
Do you want more?
...but stop yourself because you feel guilt, fear, shame, embarrassment, disbelief, remorse. Because you think 'I'm doing OK, I could be worse off - I've got more than some others'. Do you feel selfish? Do you frequently say, think, or write these things - in conversation, in Facebook statuses, in emails, texts...
I have no money
That'd just be my luck
I'll never be rich
I just wasn't born that way
I can't afford it
That'll never be my life
It could be worse.
Is it because you're describing your 'reality'? Because that's how it's always been for you? Because you've seen this as your 'reality' - now and growing up? Or has this just become your story?
Say it like it is, keep it like it is.
Say it how you'd like it to be. It could be worse - but it could be better! Or say nothing at all! Especially if you're not believing yet that you're deserving. If it's a story you've been telling for a while, it's going to take some time. But it's SO crucially important to change your story - especially if it's not what you want!
So what do you want?
There are no limitations, you haven't run out of time in your life, you can have and achieve and receive anything you'd like, whatever age, whatever background...let yourself go there.
Is it to spend your days how you choose?
Get paid a significant amount of money to do something that you love to do?
Give as much money to charity as you'd like?
Chase Summer around the globe and travel whenever you chose to?
Buy a house for your parents?
Spend your time helping those in need, whilst having all you need yourself?
Spend everyday with your family?
Wake up when you choose - and not to an alarm?
I have my own little story of busting through blocks to create my Abundance Mindset, so I'm going to share it with you. But be warned - it will push up against against some of your belief systems. It will challenge you. I predict you will try to click off the page! But if you want change and think you're ready - then hang in there with me. It'll be worth it. I promise. Read it here > > >
