What does the word “Abundance” mean to you..?
It was a scary word to me. It represented what I didn’t have.
It was a word I always associated with money. Or lack of it..
There was a particularly dismal period in my adult life made significant by the distinct LACK of abundance in every form but, yes, predominantly money. Unfortunately..
I remember the heaviness of that lack. The hopelessness. The self-worth that slowly seeped away.
And naturally I felt like a complete failure..
Yup, in those days I identified with my external environment. My circumstances dictated my feelings. Well they do. Don’t they..?
No job + no income = no good feelings. At all.
It was a vicious circle really. The more I entertained the bad thoughts (and there were many) the worse I felt. Cue complete lack of self-worth.
My journey out of this self-made little abyss of misery was not a quick one. But here’s what I eventually realized:
My thoughts dictate how I feel.
Read that again s-l-o-w-l-y..
This meant that if I focused my thoughts on pleasant things I would naturally feel better.
And if I felt better then my external environment would follow suit.
Re-read that too. It’s common sense really..
Sounds simple – but as with any habit it takes lashings of conscious effort to make any sustainable changes. Especially when it comes to our thoughts..!
I mean, thoughts just happen – don’t they? Can we really control our thinking..?
Well we can certainly choose which thoughts we entertain. Or engage with.
We can notice which thoughts give us a good feeling. And which make us feel crappy.
And then we can choose where to put our focus.
Try it..! I dare you..
You’ll be amazed..!
And you’ll feel GOOD..!
And maybe you’ll also REALIZE that abundance is actually a FEELING.
A feeling of FULLNESS.
