~ A is for Abundance ~
Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into. Wayne Dyer
Abundance is a vibration, not a dollar amount in your bank account. Carol Look
Abundance starts as a frequency in your mind and body. If you want to be a deliberate creator in your life, you must get into an abundance vibration and start thinking with an abundant mindset. When you know that abundance is a frequency, you have more control of your abundance attraction.
Now, I will admit there can be an abundance of so called “bad” things. And you can certainly have an abundance of negative situations, negative people, negative emotions, and anything else negative if you choose to put your focus there. For the purpose of this book, I will concentrate on the abundance of positive/good things, events, and people, especially since this is about Deliberately Creating and Designing Your Life on purpose!
There is abundance everywhere. Can you see it? Or better yet, can you feel it? Are you allowing it to flow into you or are you pinching it off?
Abundance is not just about how much money you have. It is about your relationships, your health and well-being and also, your time. Because abundance touches a variety of areas in your life, I will talk about abundance in various sections, but start with the subject of “money” since it carries so much importance within our society:
~ Money and Abundance ~
Do you ever feel like people do not deserve the money that they make? Do you feel like you do not deserve to make a lot of money? Do you think people with money are bad or untrustworthy? Do you blame the economy for your financial status? Oh, did I just strike a nerve there? With watching the news today and shows like CNN (constantly negative news . . . lol) all you hear about is how bad the economy is, so how can you think or feel abundant with all of that going on around you? I’ll let you in on a little secret . . . stop watching it and stop listening to it. Seriously. How does it make you feel when you watch negative, depressing news? Most likely you are not saying, “I feel abundant and uplifted.” If you are someone who can watch it and not be emotionally affected by it, then keep watching it. If you get emotionally charged or even depressed by the news, then I suggest that you avoid watching it.
I hear people say they want to stay informed and that is why they watch it. That is perfectly fine. But the thing is, to whose truth are they listening? If we are to be deliberate creators and intentional life designers, it is time for us to make our own truths no matter what others have to say.
It can be challenging. I have experienced the challenges firsthand and in the past I have allowed those challenges to affect me to where I lost my focus. And it cost me a lot! Today I listen to my truth.
There are many different pieces of information I want to share with you. One of them is that we live in an abundant Universe. This is based on the Universal Law of Sufficiency and Abundance which is the fourth of the Universal Laws – you have everything within you to manifest your dreams and desires; to have your life, your way.
The Universe is always totally and completely abundant. There is no lack! It’s just a belief that becomes some people’s reality because it’s what they heard growing up; it’s what they choose to believe; it’s where they choose to put their focus, so it becomes their reality, their truth.
Many of us were raised with a lack mindset, especially because of the Great Depression of 1929. More recently we have experienced a Recession from 2007 – 2009. Many do not feel that we have yet recovered from that. Remember that CNN reference on the previous page?
Abundance also is based on the Law of Giving and Receiving which states: the Universe operates through dynamic exchange. You must give and receive in order to keep wealth and affluence – or anything you want in life – circulating in your life.
Money is really a symbol of the life energy we exchange and the life energy we use as a result of the service we provide to the universe.
If we stop the circulation of money – our only intention is to hold on to our money and hoard it – since it is life energy, we will stop its circulation back into our lives as well. In order to keep that energy coming to us, we have to keep the energy circulating. Like a river, money must keep flowing, otherwise it begins to stagnate, to clog, to suffocate and strangle its very own life force. Circulation keeps it alive and vital.
There also is the Law of Supply which states: the Universe is filled with essential substance of every imaginable good that man can image, and that he is entitled to a full and ever increasing supply of any and every good he may need or desire. It is a law of perpetual increase, progress, and growth.
How would you feel if I told to you, “Your job is not your money, you ARE!” Say what? Are you thinking, “Colleen, you are crazy! Wa-acko!”? (I will admit I am wacko for Flacco – Baltimore Ravens quarterback…lol…couldn’t resist.)
I actually had those very words spoken to me on November 12, 2010, a day I remember well. I had a twenty minute bonus session with Christy Whitman, my QSCA coaching instructor, and she said that to me, “Your job is not your money. You are.” I knew what she meant. I felt a whole shift in energy throughout my body.
It is all about what you think, believe, feel, and vibrate about abundance.
2 Corinthians 3:5 says, “But our sufficiency is of God.” With an understanding of God’s (Universal Laws) plan, you will know that you have sufficiency for your needs and an abundance of everything.
Our supply comes from the Invisible, Unlimited, and Opulent Power behind all forms of life. Every time you have a desire for something, the Universe expands and therefore, eventually provides for you what you want.
You need to feel that you are enough (i.e., sufficient) before you can have enough in your life. If you believe that you are not enough, the Universe will meet you where you are in your vibration and you will be met with not being enough. You need to FEEL and believe enough first, before you can attract what you want.
Let go of the naysayers and everyone who wants to stay in the lack mentality. Stand in your power to know that you are enough and allow your abundance into your life.
Avoid looking outside yourself to be enough. It is all inside of you! Avoid looking to other people for validation of the FACT that you are enough. I used to do that and when I was not getting the validation and I spiraled down. I knew better and got caught up in it anyway. While it’s nice to hear validation from others, know that you are enough!
You are met at the level of your beliefs. What you believe, in any aspect of your life, you will experience that in your life. You will always prove yourself right. It’s like self-fulfilled prophecies. I will discuss this more in the chapter, ~ B is for Belief ~.
~ Lack Mindset ~
Some people think and believe that money is bad and those who have a lot of money are bad. While the love of money, being hoarded and/or to hurt others is not a good thing, money itself is not “bad.” It is just an energy. What is your money vibration?
Do you fear not having enough money? If so, you block the flow of money coming to you and you set yourself up to attract more situations or circumstances in your life to fear. Been there and done that – over it!
As I previously mentioned, abundance is a mindset and an energy. It boils down to what you think, feel, believe, and perceive about money (or relationships/health/time).
If you think in lack, then lack will be on your doorstep, in your home, in your checkbook and bank accounts, in your business, and so many other places.
The more you focus on what you do not have or what is going “wrong” in your life, the more you cannot get what you want and the more things in your life will go “wrong.”
I experienced this when I started out in my coaching career, and it was not pretty to say the least. I wrote about it in the book “F.A.I.T.H. – Finding Answers in the Heart” of which I am a collaborative author. I lost my vision and myself by getting caught up in the lack mindset all around me. I focused on everyone else’s negativity and I invited it into my life unintentionally. Uggh! And I manifested accordingly because of it.
An example is, let’s say you are a waitress and you constantly say or think, “I am not getting a lot of tips. Those cheap bas$%^# left me a lousy tip. I know they can afford more.” Or, “My tips are so small. I can’t make it on this.” You cannot get better or bigger tips because your focus is on the lack of tips or how cheap someone else is, so that is what you get, time and time again.
You could be a coach or body/energy worker who focuses on not enough clients. “I don’t have enough clients. I am having a hard time getting new clients.” Those words/thoughts keep you from getting or attracting new clients. Been there and done that as well – not pretty. You cannot have a desire for something, more clients or more money, and focus on the opposite of not having it. “I want bigger tips, but I don’t have them.” “I want more clients, but I can’t find them.” The energies cancel each other out.
Do you ever catch yourself saying, “I only received a lousy 50 cent raise?” – “I only made a lousy $60 dollars for . . .” – Those statements are low vibrational statements. Money is a form of energy. When your energy is low with negative statements, you cannot get the money that you want to have. You are telling the Universe that this is not good enough and you block the flow of it coming to you. Do you believe that if you want something, then someone else goes without? You, like most people heard that growing up. Your parents did not know any better.
That is all a lack mindset. When you focus on lack, not enough of something, you will see and experience lack all around you.
Here are a few more examples of being in a lack mindset:
- “I’m not good enough.”
- “I’m not pretty/handsome enough.”
- “Nothing I do is right.”
- “I don’t have a good enough job.”
- “I don’t make enough money.”
- “I never get the good guy/girl.
- “There aren’t any decent men or women. All the good ones are gone.”
I want to mention competition here because in some instances competition can be of a lack mindset. Competition for fun is one thing. Competition to be one up on someone is another issue, an issue of lack. Do you know someone who always has to have more than other people, especially in a show-offy way? It’s fine to have things and to have a lot of them. But when you are in competition with someone else to always have more than that person then you are in a mindset of lack. That can come from childhood, but it’s still there. You will never feel like you ever have enough or are enough.
When you have the thought process of lack and not enough and it continues, you keep creating it and recreating it, over and over. A lot of times you feel stuck. Energy is always moving, but with having the same thoughts over and over, you just keep getting the same results. Hmmm…Albert Einstein has a saying that relates to insanity, “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” Thinking the same thoughts over and over and wondering why your life will not change. Hmmm?
In coaching we talk about there are more than enough clients for everyone. We talk collaboration, not competition.
Consider this insightful passage about “lack” from the spiritual teacher “Abraham” as in Abraham-Hicks: “Continuing to tell stories of shortage only continues to contradict your desire for abundance, and you cannot have it both ways: You cannot focus upon unwanted and receive wanted. You cannot focus upon stories about money that make you feel uncomfortable and allow into your experience what makes you feel comfortable. A different story will bring different results: My thoughts are the basis for the attraction of all things that I consider to be good, which includes enough money, and health, for my comfort and joy.” – Abraham – Excerpted from the book “Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth and Happiness” # 673 (Abraham-Hicks). This applies to all aspects of abundance – relationships, health, and time.
Another aspect of lack is a fear of abundance. Say what? Why would I be afraid of abundance Colleen? Is that what you are thinking? Well, what happens is you become more abundant and the people around you stay the same. Your energy is different and you have some new people in your life. You may not want to let go of your old friends, but they are not in an abundant mindset like you are. You want to help your friends and family out with your abundance. That is awesome. But maintaining a friendship can be difficult when you are on different vibrational levels. While you now think abundantly and your friends continue to talk about lack, it can be difficult to maintain those friendships. Fear of abundance and the changes that come from it will stop some people from being abundant for any length of time.
You also can fear what other people would think about you. That is a real fear in people and that too, will stop your forward progress. (A little football terminology there . . . Go Ravens! lol) Can you allow yourself to be more abundant than your family? Say your family works hard in the family business and they just make ends meet. They also are in a lack mentality and do not realize that if they changed their focus and feelings they could increase their income. You have changed your mindset. You now think abundantly and it is easier for you to have more money, more opportunities, and more like-minded people in your life. How dare you be more abundant in your life when your family struggles? That is a subconscious thought that can sabotage your abundance. This is another reason to fear abundance.
People who win large amounts of money from the lottery, or inherit from a family member and are not in an abundant mindset usually do not keep the money for too long. They blow right through it.
They have not been taught to think and feel like a wealthy person. They are still the same old person with the same old impoverished thoughts and emotions and the money cannot last. And let’s not forget, subconsciously they do not feel worthy of having all of that money.
Do you now understand why I say “Abundance is a vibration and a mindset”? There is the same amount of abundance out there for all of us, even for the people in poor countries. We ALL have access to that abundance. Rich people usually know how to tap into the source of abundance. They teach their children what they know and their children think abundantly and most of the time they manifest accordingly.
~ How to Bring More Abundance into Your Life ~
So, how do you start to think abundantly when there are so many money issues out there; with so many people talking about how bad the economy is; with so many people still out of work and more people losing their jobs? Just how do you think abundantly?
I want you to know that the Universe is ever abundant at all times. There is no big pie for all of us to just get our fair share and no more, or if we take a bigger piece, then someone else goes without. Instead, it’s like the Denny’s commercial with the “never-ending” pancakes. A man is eating a stack of pancakes and they magically fill back in where he has eaten them. It is an endless supply. That is how the Universe is with everything, a never-ending supply of whatever it is that we want. You just have to learn how to tap into it and receive it. It is there for the asking, the taking, and the receiving.
To bring more abundance into your life, start to notice abundance all around you. There is an abundant amount of stars in the sky; an abundant amount of grains of sand on the beach; an abundant amount of waves in the ocean; an abundant amount of blades of grass in lawns; an abundant amount of rain drops in a storm; an abundant amount of leaves on trees, and so on. There is always abundance in Mother Nature and everywhere else.
Other ways to feel abundant include:
- Be satisfied now. Be satisfied with what is now! Avoid waiting to be satisfied. Even if you are at a very low point, start to be satisfied now because as the saying goes, “It could always be worse.” So be satisfied now. It’s a starting point in which to move forward. You are in the process of moving forward.
- Express gratitude for what you have been given. Focus on the good that is already in your life. AND be grateful for the good that is coming to you!
- Allow yourself to be open to receive! Know that you are worthy of abundance.
- Take personal responsibility for your life. YOU are the one responsible for your situations and circumstances.
- Be careful what you say to yourself and about yourself.
- Think BIGGER! It takes the same amount of time and energy to think big as it does to think small. It takes practice and persistence. You will be working your brain like you do a muscle. The bigger you think, the more new neural pathways you will create with those kinds of thoughts. The more you think bigger, the more of your old thoughts and old neural pathways will die off.Allow yourself to receive! Can you do that? A lot of times you say you want something and then when it comes into your life, you say, “No” to it. Those are conflicting energies. Stop doing that! – Receive it! – Believe you are worthy! When you allow yourself to receive what you want, you show and teach others that it is okay to receive. It is more than okay; it is your birthright to receive. To be in balance, you need to give and receive. If you are always giving and never receiving, you are out of balance. You then show other people how to treat you all of the time, including the Universe. What are you teaching your children about receiving? You are met at your beliefs, your actions, your emotions, and your vibrations.Manifestation happens when you are in a place of feeling at peace with where you are, while being excited about the possibilities ahead..
Another way to bring more abundance into your life is to start to ask yourself, “Where can I see abundance in my life?” – “How can I start to feel abundant?” – “What does abundance feel like?” – When you ask questions like these, especially with child-like wonder, the Universe wants to match you with that energy and show you abundance in your life and how it feels to be in abundance. There is a part of your brain called the Reticular Activating System (RAS) that will seek and search for those answers. I will discuss this more in another part of this book.
Actively look for the “good” abundance all around you. There is an abundance of good all over the place in the world. It is just getting into the habit of looking for it, and that takes practice.
Abundance is your birthright! You have to get out of yester-years thinking and get with the times. There’s an abundance of technology out there today. And that abundance of technology can lead to more abundance.
Keep a journal of abundance. Use this journal to document abundance in all of its forms: financial, health, relationships and more.
Keep a track of every type of money that comes into your life even if you choose to pass it on to someone else, log it into your journal. If you find a penny on the ground and you give it to your child or neighbor’s daughter, write it down. If you receive a $2.00 check from an organization requesting donations and “technically” they want the check back, write down that you received a check for $2.00. Money loves acknowledgement. It’s all in the energy. And being in the energy of abundance, keep track of it. You can go back to look at your journal of abundance and get back into that feeling while you are reading about all the ways money came into your life. Remember when you found unexpected money in your pockets? Didn’t that feel great? You are probably feeling better right now as you are thinking about the last time it happened. So, the next time it happens, write it down. Every time you write down a money win in your abundance journal, reread what you have already written to keep the energy alive and flowing. Bask in it for a few minutes to get it flowing into and through all of your cells.
Write a new money story in your journal. Talk about a new money story of abundance in your life. I like to say, “I’m in the process of becoming a millionaire.” – When I make that statement I feel good. I feel inspired. I visualize what it will be like to be a millionaire. Stating “I am in the process of…” brings about a feeling of positive expectation and excitement. Both of those are higher vibrational feelings, which, is what you want when you are looking to manifest great things in your life.
In your new story write and/or talk about increasing your abundance instead of paying down or paying off your debt. You want your focus to be on the abundance. Even if you think that “paying off/down” your debt is good, your focus is still on the debt, and therefore keeping you in debt or creating more debt. Write and talk about your finances increasing, your savings improving, how fat your wallet is with $100 bills. I have a one million dollar bill in my wallet. Every time I go in my wallet I see it and feel the expansiveness of it. Talk about the abundance of clients/customers, how full your schedule is, and how much you enjoy your job/career.
Keep your story present tense and avoid stating it in future tense. When you state your abundance story as “I will increase my finances. I will have more clients” then you keep the energy in the future and it will feel like you are not catching up to your future. Stating “I am . . .” as in “I am now increasing my finances” or “I am now enjoying a full complement of clients” puts the energy in the present time. Now is when and where you are vibrating. Using the phrase “I am in the process” also is useful, because all of this is a process.
It is important to note that there may be moments when times are tough and your finances are on the low side because up until now you did not know about having an abundant mindset. You might even be struggling to pay your bills on time or pay them at all. Trust me, I GET it. It can be a little challenging (Okay, a lot) getting into that abundant feeling when there are only pennies, literally, in your change purse.
That can be difficult, especially when you are on the phone talking to a bill collector and you really do not have the money at that time to pay that particular bill.
One thing that will help to break the low vibrational energy of lack, especially while you are talking to bill collectors, is to use EFT/Emotional Freedom Technique also known as Tapping. I will talk in more detail about this in another chapter, but I want to briefly mention it here.
In using EFT, you talk while you are tapping on acupressure points. This helps to decrease any stress or anxiety you’re feeling by calming down your nervous system. It works on a part of your brain that deals with the fight or flight response.
A financial example is: Any time you have to talk to someone about not having money you can do some tapping in one, two, or all of the tapping points to break up that energy so you can get in a higher vibration.
In the picture, CB is the collar bone point and anywhere in that area, you can use your index and middle finger to tap there while you are talking. Any time you get into the feeling of lack and not enough, tap on any of the points or go around the circuit of tapping points until you feel relief. It only takes 90 seconds to start to change how you feel for the better. Also, while you are talking to bill collectors you can state, “As I am in the process of having more money or making more money . . .” will allow you to be more empowered in your conversation, and it will help you to feel more hopeful.
~ Abundance of Health ~
Keep track of how great you feel, especially if you have great health, write about it. Every time you feel good, write it down. Every time you have an abundance of laughs (belly laughing that makes you short of breath and starts to hurt, but it’s a good hurt) write it down. If you receive an abundance of compliments in a day or even an hour (that happened to me at a Women’s Expo MD – three compliments in less than an hour. I felt amazing after that!), write it down. The more you do this, the more abundance you will have.
Feeling good for any reason will bring about an abundance vibration. Donna Eden of Energy Medicine talks about “tapping in the joy” which increases your degree of joy.
Joy is a high vibration, is good for your health, and therefore will enhance your overall abundance.
To “tap in the joy,” use the middle finger of either hand and tap on the area of your forehead between your eye brows, above the bridge of your nose. This is called the third eye area, and it is the first acupressure point of your nervous system.
It is powerful energy medicine to treasure your body and health. Thank your body for its amazing service, and as you reach the state of gratitude and joy, “tap it in.”
Any time you experience something really great and you want to remember that feeling and experience, take a moment and tap in that good feeling and memory.
Benefits of this type of tapping are:
- Increases your degree of joy
- Helps you imprint the good moments in your life into your nervous system
- Programs your mind to gravitate toward the positive
Remember the good times that you had together at any given time and . . . wait for it – really feel it. You can “tap” it into your third eye area to enhance the memory. When you feel the abundance of your friendships, you are letting the Universe that you like this and you want more of it. More great friends will come into your life . . . ahhh, the abundance of it all.
Something fun to do is to intermittently send each friend a card in the mail. I get cards from different organizations to which I donate. I send these cards out at different times. When I do this, I feel great. I actually smile and/or laugh while I am writing a little note in the card. I know when my friends receive them it enhances their well-being. Talk about a feeling of abundance. Sending an unexpected card in the mail is an instant abundance maker.
~ Time and Abundance ~
Another aspect of abundance is time. Even though there are only so many hours (24) or minutes (1,440) in a day, one can still have an abundance of time. How many times have you said, “There aren’t enough hours in the day?” – “Time is just flying by.” – “Idon’t know where the time goes.” If you are in a lack mindset, there is never enough time in the day to get things done.
You do not manage time, since time cannot be managed. You manage activities to make the most of your time, and therefore you have an abundance of time. This is something I have been learning for the last couple of years.
There is a question that you can ask yourself if you need some extra time. I am sure you have thought and even said out loud, “I could use just a couple of extra minutes…” or “I just need an extra hour…”
While I was in my life coaching class, one of my Pod group members, Rachel Christie, and I, partnered together to coach each other. She invited me to use the question, “How much extra time can you give me?” When I needed some extra time, I would ask that question to the Universe. And I got it.
Even though we really do not manage time, when you ask a question like that and then expect it to happen for you, you will be amazed as to how the “extra” time comes your way.
You could get all green lights going into work. Someone could offer to do something for you without having to ask for the help. You could have a cancellation of an appointment or a meeting.
I know for me, when I do get a cancellation (even without asking how I can get some extra time), I will say to the Universe, “Thank you for the extra time.” Sometimes I even add in “Thanks for the abundance of time.” Always acknowledge that you received the extra time and then make good use of it.
Another way to get some more abundance of time is to ask, “How did I get so much extra time today?” – “Why do I always get the extra time I need?” – “Why do I always make great use of my time?” – These are great to ask before you start your day. You can do so while you are still in bed before you get up or as you are getting out of bed. Questions like these will be explained later in this chapter.
~ Your Passion and Making Money ~
Now what about making money while living your passion? I hear so many people talk about wanting to do something else for a living, something that is their passion, but – BUT – there is no money in it. When you keep thinking the same thoughts that what you want cannot happen, then you stop the manifestation in its tracks. I will tell you this, when you have a desire and you live for it, the money will come. It does take time (Law of Gestation) and that is okay. It takes time because you need to hold the vision. You need to keep feeeeeling the feeeeelings of having it. It needs to be a constant and persistent thought. It needs to be what you talk about all of the time. When you say there is no money in doing your passion, you stop any possibility of it coming to you. You only know what other people have told you. They do not know the powerful, deliberate creator you are becoming.
What usually happens is you start working your passion, you keep that energy flowing through you – living and breathing it. While none of us ever knows how the Universe will deliver to us what we desire, I can tell you this, it is usually bigger and better than you have ever imagined, if you hold onto your vision and your passionate feelings of accomplishing your goal.
Let go of the HOW it is going to happen. The fact is it is not your job to figure out the how to get your abundance. Believe it can happen. Feel it. Really feel your passion. When I dared to feel my passion, I got Jack Canfield in my life. Yowzah! Take action when you get inspiration. All of this will be discussed throughout the book, but I wanted to mention it here. What you do not realize is when you focus on the “how” of something manifesting, you again, will block the flow of the best way it can happen.
I mentioned earlier if you are of the mindset that having money is bad or people who have money are bad (most likely because you heard it growing up) then you will have a hard time attracting money to you and keeping it. Based on my experience you need to know that an awesome thing money can do is help a lot of other people out – it can give them a hand UP. Think about all of the charities you to which you can donate. When you are able to do so, that will raise your vibration even more.
As stated in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Most people who live an abundant life give generously all of the time. It is not just money, they give their knowledge and time as well.
I will share an abundant goal of mine with you. As I become the millionaire who I talk about as I say, “I am in the process of becoming a millionaire,” my plan is to start different programs that will help people, animals/wild life, and the environment.
I intend to establish animal rescue agencies (regular and wild-life/exotic animals) that also help to protect and save different land areas. I also intend to have several land preservation agencies.
Now this is where it gets really cool. I intend to have children who are considered “disabled” because they were born a little different then you and me (although they really were born perfect, whole and complete), underprivileged children/teens, and adults/veterans who are having a difficult time in life and they are not sure in which direction to go, to have programs for them to be part of the animal/wild-life rescue and land preservation. They will have an opportunity to learn about all of the areas and pick where they would like to work and be productive and earn an income. So it’s a win-win-win for everyone. I get so excited when I think about it. So many different programs can be developed to help so many people and charities. Sometimes I feel like I could burst from the excitement. Talk about an abundant feeling. I also plan on helping out already existing organizations – collaboration baby!
In addition, I want to mention the importance of truly believing that you can have the abundance you desire in your life. You believe that other people can have it, but perhaps you do not believe it is possible for you. I mentioned before that you are met at the level of your beliefs (and emotions). I will talk about that more in ~ B is for Beliefs ~
If you focus on what it will feel to be abundant, if you keep thinking about making and having money while living your passion, if you think about all the good you can do with having money – the people and organizations you can help, if you can keep the belief no matter what else is going on around you, if you believe you are worthy of having money, if you focus on the abundance that is already around you, then you can have all the abundance that there is to have. Guaranteed!
Who could you be if you were more abundant in your life? What could you do with that abundance? Who else could you help?
Look for abundance of the good stuff everywhere and you will find it. You are entitled to have what you want just as the next person. The other person has the same opportunity to obtain/attract what s/he wants. The opportunity is there for everyone who tunes into the frequency of abundance and adopts an abundant mindset.
Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. Sarah Ban Breathnach
