An Abundant Woman’s Tale – You CAN Create Abundance!

This is a true story of one woman’s experience, I’ll call her Milly, on attracting and manifesting abundance into her family’s life. I still get a huge smile on my face when I think of how it all came about.

Milly has been involved in spirituality and the Law of Attraction since quite awhile before the hit movie “The Secret” was released. She just didn’t understand how it all fit together, or whether it even did fit.

The Secret

The Secret

It was after she watched the movie, along with quite a few videos recorded shortly after the movie, and read a few books, both new and old, on the subject; that she finally felt she had a grasp on how the Law of Attraction worked. She began to notice incidences and coincidences around her that were obvious examples of the Law of Attraction at work.

Although she knew it worked, she couldn’t seem to figure out what she was or wasn’t doing that kept her wishes and intentions from manifesting. She made a vision board as advised in the movie, along with writing her wishes and intentions, visualizing them and then letting them go so as not to become attached to them.  She worked hard to overcome limiting beliefs, became and stayed grateful for what she had, opened herself to receiving graciously…and still nothing.

Learn More and Apply

She took classes and courses, read books and watched videos on the Law of Attraction, hypnotism, meditation, visualization, the power of prayer and life coaching. As time went on, the literature, videos and training on these aspects became more refined and specialized.

Milly finally began to manifest small things into her life….a parking space close to the door of the store, a specific hotel room when going on vacation, a sale on a specific item for which she wouldn’t pay full retail. She came across a book last November, “E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality” by Pam Grout. She didn’t start reading it until 3 0r 4 months after the holidays.

The book consisted of 9 different experiments to try for noticing, attracting and manifesting people, items, events and money. They started out small and became larger and more complex as the experiments progressed. She went through some the experiments, and actually had success with each experiment performed. After about 4, she decided she was going to try to manifest some money herself.

Writing Your Intention

She sat down and wrote out what she wanted to attract     and manifest, “I am so happy and grateful that we have an additional $x,000 income this year.” As she had been working on a website, wanting to earn some extra money for her family by helping others, which was her passion; she hoped that she would be earning that amount of money by the end of 12 months.

Write intention

Write intention

After writing down her affirmation, she let it go, keeping no attachment to it, as she had learned when taking the courses on the Law of Attraction. And so, a few months passed with nothing really happening on her website. She continued working on it, taking more courses and began building her clientele, with more money going out than coming in at that point.

While all this was going on with her courses and website, things were happening at her husband’s company. I’ll call him Bob. The management had decided to create a new position and asked Bob if he would be interested in a promotion into this position. Although he was the person who told them they really needed to create this position, he had also initially told them he wasn’t interested, thinking he would be getting more headaches than he already had.

From Whence it Comes

Well, the company created the position and asked Bob to apply for it; which, after some deep thought and soul searching, he did. When they offered him the job, they told him he would be getting a raise of $x,000, which was the exact amount she had written in her manifestation intention.

Money

Money

What I find funny is it took a month before Milly realized Bob’s raise was the same amount she had written. On the day she finally realized what had happened, she was watching a short video on the Law of Attraction and manifesting. She was almost finished with the video when she finally realized the manifestation intention she had written a few months before had happened!

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, you might find it funny to know that my husband and I are Bob and Milly. And that is how I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that you CAN attract and create abundance!

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.

 

 

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!
