Abundance Depends Upon How We See Ourselves As someone who studies abundance closely, I want to debunk several myths that we carry in our hearts and minds about wealth, rich people and money. For most people — even New Thought-ers — abundance equates to having lots of money. Because we are all unique particularizations of the Infinite, because we are all part of this accommodating Universe, asking it tantamount to receiving, seeking is actually finding, and knocking is the opening of the door.
That may be a tough pill to swallow and you may protest. But God delivers in lavish abundance…every time. No one can judge that for you.
You must know your own divinity. How do you see yourself? Because what you receive from the Universe reflects your own self-understanding. Abundance depends upon how we see ourselves. Expand your self-concept and your world expands correspondingly. Restrict your self-concept and your world follows suit. There Is No Supernatural You may have to work with this statement: What most people call a miracle refers to an abrogation of divine law.
In a Universe full of consistency and faithfulness — which God is at Its core — there can be no side-stepping divine law. Can you imagine the chaos if sometimes you can depend on the law of gravity and other times you cannot?
No one would ever get on a plane again if we could depend upon the law of aerodynamics to faithfully deliver a plane that cooperates with its principles through the air. We experience plenty of miracle-like things that we do not always understand. We just know that if we flip the switch in our homes, light emanates from the bulbs.
Every so-called miracle represents a tapping of the Universe at a level that we do not consciously understand. And, that is good news. I can benefit from God even before I understand how the benefit works. God never withholds Itself from us. The only lack in life is the thought of lack.
Even the person who devotes time and resources to explain to you why certain groups of people are poorer than other groups of people or have less than other groups of people makes use of the very energy of God to spew such nonsense.
The energy of God will shape Itself into whatever form you can receive, including the appearance of lack. Let us now discover how to transmute energy wrapped up in lack and limitation back into light so that we may use it for good and worthwhile purposes.
It can be raining and I can make the sun shine. The question we must all ask: So, the difference lies not in the thing itself but in the way it has pressed out into expression. The two million can be a symbol of lack and the two cent can be a symbol of abundance. Its means lies in the mind of the holder. Can you look at what you have and see beyond the appearance to the divine idea that stands underneath it? It takes no more energy for God to manifest one million dollars through you than it takes for God to manifest one penny through you.
The principles of manifestation remain the same. The laws that govern expression do not change. The only change lies in your use of them. The magic lies in blessing what you have. Even if you have no money and no food, bless your hands, your mind, your skills, your friends, the air you breathe, the sun that brings light. You have no reason to hesitate. The Universe — aka God — has your back. So, get going right now. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation , there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it! The lack you perceive anywhere is really an illusion.
You just may be living a limited experience but that limited experience has no permanence. The moment you lay hold to the abundance idea, you can have an experience of that abundance. The equation does not wait until you get paper and pencil to add up. And, so is your abundance.
And, you will know…with clarity…that lack is but an attitude of mind. The only job I have it to put myself into a position of expectancy. We get off track when we become consumed with understanding how it works. How many blessings have been missed because we needed to know how it would come before we would open our hearts to receive?
Write this sentence down and post it on your bathroom mirror: I free Spirit to bring my good in whatever way Spirit deems appropriate. Right now, I am open, receptive and moving in a state of complete expectancy. If a chemist prays for guidance, ideas come about chemistry.
If a physicist prays for guidance, ideas come about physics. Are you praying from the position of the beggar or the rich man? The victim or the victor? The Universe will accommodate whichever role you decide to play. Stand up now as the champion you were designed to be. Claim your inheritance as a spiritual being. I must live this Truth. Pray as one who deserves all the riches of the universe. Pray as one who knows that you are well cared for. My Call To Action Become the person who can receive what you want.
You are not waiting for your dreams to come true; your dreams are waiting for you to come true. When you sit in your prayer closet today, speak to Spirit as the realized person that you are. Do not approach the throne of grace timidly, hoping for a handout. Go boldly into the quiet of your being and stake your claim on those riches that only you can claim.
