Attaining an Attitude of Abundance and Affluence

A Word On The Woowoo

What I’m about to discuss now may seem a bit metaphysical, and I suppose it is to anyone not acquainted with these practices. I only ask that you keep an open mind as we go through these.

I’m going to list three different practices you can use to attract affluence and abundance into your life. These don’t follow the norm of what you may have heard when it comes to the Law of Attraction. They were shared by Bert Goldman, the American Monk, who also introduced Quantum Jumping, which I’ll explain in another post.

1. – Awareness of Your Actions

Awareness

Awareness

In the evening, just prior to going to bed, go over the events of the day. Ask yourself what you did that day that you would rather have done differently. What did you do that day that was wrong?  What did you do that you could have done better?

Going over these events, you may find that there were quite a few things that you could have done better, differently; possibly as many as ten to twenty or more. By doing this, you become more aware of yourself, of the things that other people see in you that perhaps you don’t see when you look in the mirror. Do this for a week or two.

Self Sabotage & Limiting Factors

What does this have to do with attaining an attitude of abundance? It all has to do with self sabotage, which I’ve spoken of in a previous post. When you do something that is wrong, or not to the best of your ability, there is a little measure of guilt that comes in.

You may feel you want to repeat the act correctly, or as it should have been done; but, if you don’t admit you’ve done anything wrong, then there’s nothing to repeat. In other words, it festers in your inner conscience. It chews away and causes a great deal of limiting factors in your life.

When you feel you’re limited in some aspect of your life, then you feel you only deserve so much. For example if you feel limited in relationships, then you feel you only deserve so many friends and these friendships will only be so fulfilling.

If you feel limited in wealth, then you only feel you deserve to be in a certain income bracket. If you make more than what you feel you deserve, it somehow gets lost or squandered until you’re back in the area of income in which you are comfortable or feel you deserve to be.

Keep Up the Practice

Limitations cause people so many problems in the areas of health, wealth, relationships and a myriad of other aspects of life. After you have been using this self awareness practice awhile, you’ll get to a point where it will be a few days when there isn’t anything you would have done differently or better. When you get to this point, then you’re ready for the next step to attaining an attitude of abundance.

2. – Activating Your Internal Electromagnet

This is a simple process. You tense your shoulders, neck and head slightly; then, just close your eyes.  Keep everything from the shoulders up slightly tensed, almost to the point you can feel yourself quivering.  As I said, it’s a simple process.

Attracting Abundance With Electromagnetism

Once you’ve activated your electromagnet, you are able to begin attracting the abundance you want into your life. With your eyes still closed and your electromagnet still activated, visualize what it is you are wanting to attract for a few minutes; then, just let it loose. Do this a few times a day.

3. – The Rhythm of Abundance

Rhythm

Rhythm

Every aspect of life has its own flow or rhythm, and abundance is no different. Here is an example of what I mean. There’s the story you hear about wealth or poverty consciousness. You give a million dollars to a person with a poverty consciousness; and, within a year, that person will not have any of the money left.

Adversely, If you take a million dollars away from a person with a wealth consciousness, that person will have gotten that money back within a year or so.  A person with a wealth or poverty consciousness has a certain energy or rhythm to their consciousness.

Learning Your Rhythms

One way of finding your rhythms is with the thought of food. First, think of a food you really enjoy. Begin tapping a rhythm with your hand, whatever feels right, on your chest, your thigh, the table. Become aware of this rhythm. Next, think of a food that you really do not like at all. Tap a rhythm while thinking of that food. You’ll probably find that the rhythm is slower when tapping on what you dislike.

Another way, and one that you will probably appreciate more for the use you want, is to tap your rhythm while remembering a time when you had a lot of money, even if it was just for a day or so, or when you really felt affluent. Also, learn your rhythm for when you didn’t have any money or abundance of what it is you are wanting.

Once you have these rhythms established, make a practice each morning of tapping your rhythm for abundance for about 30 to 60 seconds. You can do this more than once a day; but, you should refrain doing so before bedtime since your sleeping state is yet another rhythm.

A Message For the Skeptic

Even if you are skeptical, give these practices a try. Do them for a few weeks and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised. When you stop and think about it, what do you have to lose? After a few weeks, ask yourself….does it work? If it does, then you’ve found new ways to attract affluence and abundance!

Journaling to Overcome Self Limiting Beliefs

Identifying Self Limiting Beliefs

In my previous post “Sabotage of the Subconscious Mind of an Abundant Woman”, I discussed some of the self limiting beliefs we have all accumulated throughout our lives… I’m inadequate, I’m worthless, I’m defective, I’m unattractive, I’m a loser, I’m a failure.  And those are but a few that we have become buried in our psyches.  The trick is to really pay attention to your thoughts and feelings throughout your day.

Limiting beliefs are very powerful. You’ve had them, thought them, felt them for years.  From the time you first experience life, you are inundated with the self limiting beliefs of your parents, grandparents, extended family and friends, your culture and religion.  The more you think of them, the more  energy you give them. The more energy you give them, the more they hold you back from having the abundant, joyful life you deserve.

Your beliefs become your reality.  You will always find evidence to support your beliefs, and to have them become your reality.Your feelings are the perfect tool for identifying these self limiting beliefs you may not even realize you have.  You need to be sure to check in with yourself, ask yourself what you are feeling and why.  Don’t fight the feelings, but observe them.  Any negative feelings you are having lead back to self limiting beliefs.

Understanding Limiting Beliefs

Following is a short list of what self limiting beliefs consist of.  What others can you think of

  • Excuses
  • Justifications
  • Worries
  • Beliefs conditioned from religion, culture or family
  • Negative thought patterns
  • Perfectionist thinking
  • Past failures
  • Fears

Journaling Can Help

Journaling

Journaling

Journaling is a very good habit to start.  It’s a great way to get inside your own head, to write down the thoughts and feelings you have.  Start with a goal, a dream or desire.  Write down everything that comes to you,  whether positive or negative.

Be brutally honest with yourself.  Once you have written until you can write no more, go back and find the negative thoughts and feelings.  Pay attention to any patterns you may see.

Overcoming Self Limiting Beliefs

  • Don’t allow yourself to be defined by these beliefs
  • Choose to stop agreeing with the limiting beliefs
  • Question all of the conclusions you have about what you think to be true
  • Take some kind of action to test your assumptions
  • Spend time integrating a new, empowering belief

Sometimes, it can be just that simple.  The biggest hurdle of all will be remembering what you’ve been allowing yourself to believe all these years, and maintaining the new beliefs you wish to put into place.  When you finally realize you have ingrained these positive and empowering beliefs into your daily life, you will begin noticing all the abundant aspects that have been there all along, waiting for you to acknowledge. How many self limiting beliefs have you been holding onto all these years?

Living Abundantly by Giving Abundantly

Far too many people pursuing a life of abundance through the Law of Attraction are doing so for purely selfish reasons.  I will be the first to admit, I began this journey with the LOA largely because of what I could get out of it.  Although I have always wanted to be able to help others, I sought a life of abundance to fill a void. My largest concern was how to make my life more comfortable; mainly, so I could find more enjoyment and fulfillment relationally and materialistically.  I didn’t completely ignore the spiritual aspects of it all, but it was not anywhere near the top of my list.

As I began this new journey though, I was forced to look inward to find the true source of discontent. That’s when I realized the times I was happiest and most fulfilled were the times I knew I had helped others in pursuing their lives of fulfillment. This is not the type of help in which one loses themselves and their sense of self in the process, but of giving that of which they have an abundance. In return, even more abundance is returned.

Giving of Yourself Abundantly

Giving abundantly can take many forms, from the smallest gesture to the largest commitment.  Giving of yourself and what you have brings a glow to your heart.

Glowing Heart

Glowing Heart

Did you smile and thank the cashier and bagger at the grocery?  Did you allow the car in the next lane to merge in front of you?   When was the last time you visited a retirement home, or have you ever?  Have you considered donating time to Meals on Wheels?  If you belong to a church, are you active in their charitable events?  Do you donate clothes or furniture, or do you find it easier to set it all out with the trash pick-up?

I do not have the ability to drive anywhere at any time, but I found I could give my support through an online prayer group.  Even though I am not a religious person, it matters not.  I believe there is a higher power.  Call it God, The Divine, The Universe…prayers, thoughts and intentions are sent, received and answered. There are over 100,000 members in this prayer group.  Can you imagine the effect those prayers have?  Reading some of the messages of thanks brings tears to my eyes.

It Doesn’t Take Much Money to Make a Difference

When I began donating, I couldn’t afford much.  I found that with a few dollars, I could put a Thanksgiving dinner on a family’s table.  I could help feed the homeless that went to a church or shelter for a hot meal on a cold night.

Have you donated money to any charities – international, national or local?  Do you drop your extra change in the Salvation Army bucket during the holidays?  Do you buy those little flags from the AmVets table when it is set up outside the grocery store?  How about supporting the Red Cross when disaster strikes…or before is even better.   There are SO many legitimate charities, from local to international.  Chose one or two, if that’s all you can afford, more if you can do so.  Your heart will truly glow, knowing you are doing what you can to help those less fortunate than you.

Any sort of giving is the perfect way to make you more grateful for what you have.  It will truly make you feel abundant.  And, when giving unconditionally starts to bring more abundance into your life as a way of thanking you, share more.  The cycle has begun, and you will surely be a better, more abundant woman for the giving of yourself and what you have to share.

What have you shared, contributed or donated lately?  Didn’t it make you feel wonderful about doing so?  Share you stories. I would love to read them.

Sabotage of the Subconscious Mind of an Abundant Woman

You try, you want, you desire, you meditate…..and yet it seems as if you’re stuck, going nowhere fast.  Could it be your subconscious mind is being sabotaged by thoughts and feelings of which you’re not even aware? The subconscious mind has accumulated years of habitual programming that goes on without you even consciously thinking about it.  Memories of negative experiences program you  to identify with negative “self beliefs” such as I’m inadequate, I’m worthless, I’m defective, I’m unattractive, I’m a loser, I’m a failure.  Those types of negative beliefs behave like “set points” that trigger automatic self destructive actions and thoughts that inevitably become self-fulfilling prophecies.  So, we’ve been told that if we practice positive affirmations,  we will attract positive results through the law of attraction.  Although, this is correct, if our affirmations are only rattling around in our conscious minds, what does that say of what is happening in the subconscious?  Your subconscious mind may be limiting and sabotaging you in ways that you do not even realize.

How Can You Overcome Sabotage of the Subconscious Mind?

Tension

Tension

Through practices such as meditation, yoga, or hypnosis, you will learn to develop mindfulness and an ability to live  your life consciously.  With these practices, you will  learn to observe events happening in your life consciously instead of them happening “to” you without your awareness.  You will begin to act consciously,  instead of reacting unconsciously. What you used to automatically respond to without thought, you’ll begin to notice as a negative or positive trigger of response.  Those negative triggers can then be dealt with, and old responses can be transformed into new thoughts and ideas. Those limiting beliefs can be transformed into new, positive ideals, which can then be incorporated into your meditations or self-hypnosis (which will be covered in another post).  The positive affirmations which were originally only found in the conscious mind can now be transformed into new and positive subconscious thoughts and feelings.

Remember to always keep your thoughts and feelings in your awareness and abolish anything negative that creeps in before it becomes something that encourages any sort if sabotage of your subconscious mind.

 

 

Creative Visualization for Abundance and Success

By Margot Huff – When it comes to abundance, creative visualization is so very important.  Without it, being able to attract abundance into your life is practically impossible.  Creative visualization can help you improve any area of your life with which you feel needs improvement.  You will have, do and be better at anything you visualize.  You’ll attract new, inspiring people and opportunities into your life. This really is a life changing practice….and it starts with your imagination

Creative visualization is using your imagination to visualize the life you want to create. There is nothing new or unusual about creative visualization. You already use it daily; in fact, every minute of every day. It is the power of imagination, the basic creative energy of the universe, which you use constantly, whether consciously or not.  In the past, we have all unconsciously used our power of creative visualization.  Because of the negative concepts about life which have been ingrained in us since childhood, we have automatically and unconsciously expected and imagined lack, limitation and difficulties to be a big part of life; and that is exactly what we have created for ourselves.girlmeditatingonthesunset_0

The Difference Between Daydreams and Creative Visualization

When you daydream, you are experiencing pleasant visionary distraction of the mind; a  mild, wishful creation of the imagination, a pleasant fantasy, and that is as far as it goes. Comparing a daydream to creative visualization is like comparing a fluffy little kitten to a fierce lioness. Creative visualization goes so much further.  With creative visualization, you need to completely immerse yourself into this projection from the imagination and infuse it with positive emotions.  As with meditation, you should find a quiet place away from all distractions.  Once you have the visualization in your mind, include as much sensual vibrancy as you can.  See the deep blue sky, hear the birds chirping, smell the orange blossom, feel the soft grass beneath your feet.  The most important of this visualization – infuse it with deep, positive emotions.

With  your imagination, you can “rewire” your subconscious to help you become happier, healthier, more creative,  abundant and confident;  or achieve almost any other goal  for which you aim.  Your subconscious mind is so powerful, it can help you live the life you’ve always wanted — a fulfilling life  with success, happiness, excitement and so much natural motivation that you jump out of bed every morning, thrilled to be alive, and revitalized by the inspiration of achieving your biggest dreams…  abundant dreams that you deserve.

How Creative Visualization Works

There have been over 200 studies showing that visualization improves everything from your memory to physical skills and productivity…and that’s just the start.  Because the use of you imagination “feels” real to your nervous system, creative visualization works quickly to impact you at the subconscious level.  What that means is that you can use it to intentionally and effectively improve any and all areas of your life.

Success and Abundance with Creative Visualization

Creative visualization can help you improve any area of your life.  It can help you attract the experiences and success you need to achieve abundance, even if you seem to attract lack and scarcity, or sabotage your efforts to improve your life.  It will help you attain enormous gains in abundance and success.  And it’s so much easier than you could ever imagine!

Have you used creative visualization in your life?  What positive and abundant successes have you had with it?  How do you feel it can be used to make your life more abundant? Leave a comment below and share your experiences.

As I Dream of a Life of Abundance

By Margot Huff – Another day…another dream! I just woke from a nap. Lo’ and behold!  I remember another dream of abundance I have had, which doesn’t happen often…at least not until recently. Maybe, it’s because of my concentration on my ideal of abundance and what it means to me.

What type of Abundance do You Dream of?

Many of us have been engaging in a tremendous amount of concentration on abundance in the past few years; whether it’s dreams, meditation or hypnosis. What does it mean to each of us? For some, it has to do with spiritual abundance; for others, it means financial; And yet, others concentrate on abundant health or relationships. I would dream, concentrate on and wish for an abundant life which encompasses all aspects of life – spiritual, financial, health, relationships.

Spiritual Abundance

Prayer

Prayer

Is there a spiritual emptiness inside of you that you just can’t seem fill? Is there something missing in your relationship with God, Spirit, the Universe?  If you can see yourself right now in any of this, just know these feelings are not unique to you.  These feelings are experienced by most, if not all of us, at one time or another. Taking some time each day to quiet your mind will help tremendously in this area. And always, always remember to be grateful for your life. The more you are grateful, the more you’ll attract in your life for which to be grateful.

Financial Abundance

Money

Money

Who doesn’t want to earn enough money to have at least the creature comforts in life? Who doesn’t want to earn much more? I do! I love going away for long weekends, and would like to do it more often.  I would love to have a mountain home and a beach home. I love the thought of being able to help family and friends in financial need. I would love to be able to donate a significant amount of money to charities of my choice. No matter your financial status now, always, always remember to be grateful for the money you do have. The more you are grateful, the more you’ll attract ways to earn more money for which to be grateful.

Abundant Health

Healthy

Healthy

“Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously.”   Jean-Pierre Barral

Abundant health is such an important factor in the life of an abundant woman, the lack of which can seriously impact the joy of living…. Need I say more?   This is one aspect of abundance in which I find have especially asked for help from God, Spirit, the Universe.  Having been diagnosed with diabetes, degenerative disc disorder, severe depression, sciatica, chronic tendonitis, fibromyalgia and chronic pain, just to name a few, I was being overmedicated and lived in a fog for a few years. I finally took matters away from the doctors and put them in my own hands. I am happy to say I  now have my diabetes under control with diet alone, have weaned myself off of antidepressants, muscle relaxers and four other medications.  Although I may not be the poster child for perfect health, I am feeling better and younger than I have in a  very long time and plan on continuing self improvement until the day I can once again become gainfully employed and give my disability income back to the government.  I am so very grateful for my improved health and disposition. No matter your health situation, be grateful for the positive aspects of being alive and breathing. The more you are grateful, the more good health you’ll attract for which to be grateful.

Abundant Relationships

Relationship

Relationship

After 31 years, I am very fortunate to have a husband who still loves me passionately. I have In-laws who are the best.  I am blessed with good friends and a loving family.  Do not think  it all comes easy.  As anyone with good, strong relationships knows, it takes work and perseverance  to make any relationship work.  And there are always bumps in the road.  To maintain an abundant relationship, it is so very important to acknowledge the positive aspects of the other person, and focus on those more than anything. Everyone has some negative pieces in their personalities.  To recognize them and accept the person as they are is the key component to keeping the relationship strong and thriving.  Remember, as they have negative aspects to their personalities, you also do; and those that love you accept these. So, be grateful for your friends and loved ones. The more you are grateful, the more abundant relationships you will attract into your life for which to be grateful.

Blessings,

Margot Huff

 

 

Follow Me In My Dream of Abundance

By Margot Huff – So, follow me as I share my dream of abundance. I woke up this morning, remembering this wonderful dream of being an abundant woman, in every sense of the phrase! I sat on the edge of the bed, thanking the Universe and my Higher Power for starting my day in such a beautiful way.  My dream started with me waking to a beautiful, sunny morning.  Birds were chirping in the trees so melodiously (is that a real word?) just outside my open door to our 2nd floor verandah (yes, open).

Billowing sheers

Billowing sheers

There was a soft, gentle breeze coming through the screen door, making the sheers billow ever so slightly into my room….(Hey!  Don’t grimace!  It IS my dream, after all!)  I threw back the sheets, sat on the edge of the bed, thanking the Universe and my Higher Power for starting my day in such a beautiful way (didn’t I just say that?)  and hopped (well, truth be told…more like tripped) out of our oversized king sized bed to face another gorgeous day as an abundant woman.   My partner (I’d say husband, but I’ve had one of those for over 30 years already) was downstairs brewing coffee and making breakfast. I could smell the fresh brewed coffee and cooked bacon (which had no fat or cholesterol), wafting up to our spacious loft bedroom (with the open window).  Did I mention that the bedding, sheers, and huge, soft rug on the natural pine floor were all white?

The dog snoozing at the foot of the bed was white too (can you tell I looooove white?).  So….back to the snoozing bacon, I mean dog….she awoke and came up to me for soft doggie kisses on my face (did I mention she was white…I mean white white?)  Ok, well anyway, she gave me these soft doggie kisses with her delicate pink tongue (no dog breath from this girl) before I slipped into my thin, white silk robe that matched my thin, white silk negligee and flew down the stairs to greet my husband (oops, I mean partner) with a loving kiss from my ever so soft, wrinkle-free lips. He told me he gave our cook the morning off as he served me fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh brewed coffee, perfectly cooked bacon (which had no fat or cholesterol),  soft and fluffy scrambled eggs with a perfectly toasted english muffin slathered in sweet, creamy butter.

Our driver (all decked out in white) waited outside, polishing the hood of our iridescent white limousine whilst I leisurely ate breakfast, showered and dressed for our 15 minute drive from our  lovely, country estate through the forest to the antique mall to purchase any and all antiques I chose, which would be delivered the very same day back to our lovely, country estate.

Sleepy Dog

Sleepy Dog

Unfortunately, that’s when my  3 dogs woke me with wet, sloppy dog breath kisses, shedding their red hair on me, my sheets, pillow and comforter (which I can never purchase in white because I have 3 dirty dogs). But I love them so much. I also very much love my husband who does have the coffee brewing. And, although we do not have the cook, driver, limo or country estate  (yet), I feel so abundant and grateful for what I do have.

So, with that, I believe I’ll end this post, go get some fresh coffee and read the Sunday paper with my husband while the dogs curl up around our feet.  I hope you also have a fabulously abundant day!
