Thoughts of Abundance

“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.” -Kahlil Gibran

Why is it that we only ask for things when we need them?

If a family member is ill, we wish health upon them. When we have a bill that needs paying, we ask for more money. When we are lonely or afraid, we hope for companionship.

Why is it that that moment is the only one we take to ask for what it is that we need or even for what we want?

The concept of “Abundance” is one that is slowly gaining popularity. Simply put, you need to adopt a particular mentality, in this case, abundance, to get the results that you desire.

If you think abundantly, you will receive abundantly.

Let’s consider the simplest case- Money.

You want money, you need money; you are constantly in a state of “what if I don’t have enough money?” If you are constantly putting out the thought that you do not have enough money and that you need more, what do you think is going to happen?

Your “lack” mentality is going to be the primary driving force behind getting what you want, or in this case, NOT getting what you want.

There are many ways to think about this.

For instance, consider the power of subliminal messages.

You can send yourself subliminal messages and, believe it or not, you do it all the time already.

We all do.

We look at our paychecks and wonder, “why can’t I earn more money? I’m worth more than this, right?”

When we do that, we think, “I don’t have enough money and I’m not sure that I’m worth it to make more money.”

Eventually that can evolve into, “I should be happy with what I’m getting because I can’t go anywhere else because I’m not worth it. No one else would ever hire me.”

You would never stand for someone constantly telling you over and over again that you are not worth it or that your value is less than that of your co-workers, why do you let your subconscious do it?

There is no easy answer. You can look back at your history and see what kind of mentality that you grew up with.

You can look at your family, friends and co-workers and see what kind of attitude that they adopt. But most easily, you can change the way you speak to yourself.

Change the “I don’t have enough” speech to the “I have plenty for myself and for others.”

When you come from the viewpoint of having more than enough, you set yourself up to deal with the “more than enough” that will eventually come your way.

Think, like attracts like. Abundance will attract abundance just like lack will attract lack.

How are you talking to yourself now? Can you see how easy it can be to attract more of the good stuff in life to you?

What will you do to attract more abundance in your life?

Consider the alternative.
