Where does your mind go when you hear the word ‘abundance’?

The dictionary definition says ‘more than enough of anything’.THE EMPOWERMENT EFFECT

Some of the world’s great teachers have their own definitions.

 “Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.” ~ Wayne Dyer

“The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts.” ~ Marianne Williamson

“Abundance is about being rich, with or without money.” ~ Suze Orman

But the one who comes closest to the truth of abundance is writer, Mark Twain, who said 

“If you want love and abundance in your life, give it away.”

It seems counter-intuitive to give away your abundance, especially when you’ve worked hard to have it! But feeling free and confidence enough to give your love, money, time, attention … to others is the key to creating a flow of all good things in your life.

This includes paying your bills, giving someone your full attention, sharing the fruits of your garden – anything that involves you transferring some of what you have to another.

But it’s not WHAT you give, or HOW MUCH you give that counts.

What really matters is HOW you give.

Are you paying your bills with fear or resistance? 

Are you spending time with someone begrudgingly?

Are you giving with the expectation of getting something in return?

But here’s the thing!

If you have bills, you have them because you consumed something – electricity, gas, the use of your phone, your car insurance. If you’re paying a lot of income tax, it means you have a lot of income to be taxed.

That’s a blessing.

If there are people in your life who would benefit from your time and undivided attention, you have people in your life!

That’s a blessing.

If your garden is full of fruit and vegetables, it’s because you have a garden and the ability to grow produce.

That’s a blessing.

Imagine if you could feel as good about giving – in any capacity – as you do about receiving?

Try it!

Next time you pay for something, do it with an attitude of gratitude that you have the means to pay for that thing.

Next time you sit with someone, be there knowing that you are blessed to be a source of support for that person.

Give generously and with gratitude, even if you don’t have much to give right now.

Abundance is an energy and all energy needs to move!

The more you allow your abundance to flow from the inside out, the more abundance you will experience, because you are creating the space for it.

Try it for yourself.

You have nothing to lose but a sense of fear and lack.
