What are you thinking as you pay your bills? Do you see this
activity as a reflection of the scarcity in your life or of the abundance?
Positive Thoughts Have Power
I used to know a woman who wrote on the top of each check, “Thank
you, God.” For her, having the money to pay her bills was a sign of abundance, and she sent gratitude out into the Universe each time she spent money. She
wasn’t a wealthy woman with unlimited resources. She worked at a job, owned a house and had responsibilities,
but she chose to focus on what she had instead of her lack.
I don’t write “Thank you, God” on every check, but whenever
I remember, I say “Thank you for this abundance.” It is important to acknowledge what is good
in our lives and identify that as abundance. Acknowledging this gift from the Universe makes me feel good and raises my vibration. That vibration ripples out into the Universe, drawing to me more positive energy in many forms.
Definition of Abundance
Don’t limit your ideas of prosperity or abundance to finances. Anything uplifting contributes to our concept of abundance. What about the love of friends and family? What about opportunities for growth or expanding awareness? What about a surplus of food? What about good health or an understanding health practitioner?
The forests and mountains where I live are one of the most bio-diverse
areas in the world and constantly feed my spiritual needs. This area also has an abundance of people who share my values and many opportunities to explore self-growth and artistic expression. Despite often living on little money, I’ve had little debt and never felt poor. It isn’t a mind-set I choose to embrace.
How To Draw Abundance To You
I grew up in a family with a huge scarcity consciousness so it is an on-going challenge for me not to allow that to become an obstacle. In order to feel prosperous most of the time, it is important to keep one’s energy up and to be free of expectations about the source of the abundance or how it will look. Sometimes we receive what we requested but don’t recognize it because of our preconceived ideas about its appearance or source.
Recently, I discovered that my car needed an expensive repair. Repairing it at the price the dealer quoted me would have destroyed by monthly budget, so I asked the Universe for another solution. First, I released my fear to clear my mind. Secondly, I expressed gratitude for the good in my life and the fact
that I had extra money in savings. Thirdly, I visualized gold coins showering me and the car being repaired for much less than the dealer’s quote. I
visualized this until I felt it had actually happened.
Within a few days, through a friend, I found an excellent mechanic who would do the repair for half price, and the next day my tax refund was deposited in my bank account. It was more than enough to cover the repair. Since I had made a mistake on the tax return and had no reason to expect it so quickly, this was a delightful surprise. I knew the synchronicity of these events was not random.
In the final analysis, I see everything good that comes into my life as abundance. As a result, I feel secure most of the time. When I don’t feel that way, I use the three steps I mentioned above. That’s how you too can create abundance and flow with the Universe. © 2011 Georganne Spruce
