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.

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

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!
