A book, a bag and a light bulb
I compose a lot of my blogs at night, when I’m asleep. I wake up and just have to type them up. Well, maybe polish them up a little bit, too. My intentional assistant works the night shift (remember her?)
Anyway, last night I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about wealth and abundance.
I feel like I have a pretty abundant life. I have had many amazing experiences, I’ve been to fascinating places, accomplished some incredible things, known awesome people, felt so many emotions, and experienced so many facets of the human experience. I know there is so much more to come. I’m just describing the tip of the abundance iceberg here.
On the simpler side, I can feel incredibly wealthy with these three things: lots of books to read (yay, Kindle!), plenty of zip lock baggies (I know, I need to find a sustainable version) and a package of bright light bulbs (light workers need light!). Somewhere along the way, those became my ultimate luxury items.
Silly, right? Silly that I decided that I can feel incredibly wealthy with just a few simple things. Here’s the secret. It’s not those things or any THINGS. It was that I decided that what I already had was enough to feel wealth and abundance.
The feelings of wealth and abundance are accessible to us at all times.
It doesn’t mean we can’t want to do and be and feel more. Of course we can. But wanting from a place of abundance – wanting more of what we already have AND ALREADY KNOW WE CAN HAVE – feels so damned different than wanting from scarcity.
Wanting from scarcity means not knowing if you can have what you want. It reeks of doubt and desperation.
Wanting from abundance means that you know that your dreams can come true. A bit of work, a bit of magic, lots of belief…and you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about what wealth means to you, instead of worrying.
And remember: in all things – progress, not perfection!
Love and light,
