Each of us wants abundance in our life—we want to have plenty of money, love, success and happiness. If we do not have those things we believe that abundance is not present. That’s because we tend to describe the ‘good’ in our life as abundance and the ‘bad’ as lack. So webelieve that if have money, love, success and joy then we have abundance. And if we do not have those things we don’t have abundance, or we have lack. But that is wrong. We exist in a state of abundance all of the time. Whether we have what we want or not, we always have abundance in every area of our life.
Our tendency to put abundance and the good in our life together is what misleads us into thinking that we are not able to manifest what we want or we are not being blessed when we look at our life and see only problems or lack. If we change our definition of abundance from ‘wealth’ to simply having a large quantity we can see two things: where we have abundance and what we have an abundance of. Then we will have the information we need to manifest what we truly want.
With a new definition of abundance we can look at our life in a much different way. Are there areas of your life that you are not happy with? Then you have an abundance of dissatisfaction. Do you have few friends and not much of a social network? Then you have an abundance of loneliness. Do you not have enough financial resources? Then you have an abundance of lack. Do you wish you could start on a new path in your life but can’t seem to take that first step? Then you have an abundance of fear and doubt.
When we have a lot of things we don’t like in our life, for example, difficult relationships, an unfulfilling job, not enough money, problems with family or friends, we think that we don’t have abundance. We do, we have an abundance of many things that we don’t like. Who is responsible for that? One hint, it’s not the Universe. The Universe simply responds to our requests. It does not judge them or remind us that we are asking for things that are not going to make us very happy.
Why would we intentionally manifest what we don’t like? There are many reasons, habit, fear, doubt, karmic lessons, or our own beliefs about how much happiness, success, wealth and love we deserve. That alone is the reason we have an abundance of things that do not bring us joy, peace, success and love. The Universe gives us what we ask for, no more and no less.
Once we know where abundance exists, we can begin to focus on creating an abundance of things we want and less of what we don’t want. Transforming what we are attracting to ourselves is as easy as paying attention to what we are asking for, how we are asking and what we believe about ourselves and what we deserve. While we may not intentionally tell the Universe ‘I want an unfulfilling job’, our belief that we won’t be happy with a job or can’t find one that is fulfilling or even one that pays us what we believe we deserve is enough to create an unfulfilling job.
Asking for what we want is not enough—do we believe we can have it and that we deserve it? If not, we will always fall short of getting something that satisfies us in every way. Everything that we think, say and do affects what we attract in our lives. Our thoughts have just as much energy as our words do, so if we say we want a loving partner in our life but we don’t believe one will ever come our way, we should not be surprised that we are alone yet another day, month or year.
Changing our beliefs about what we deserve is one of the hardest things that we can do. It requires constant vigilance of our thoughts and words. We must make a genuine effort to remember that we are powerful, divine spiritual beings who have the ability to create whatever we want. Anything that is currently in our life is a result of something we asked for, whether we asked consciously or unconsciously, believed we deserved and will continue to manifest it until we transform ourselves.
What do you have an abundance of in your life? Is it flowing smoothly and are you happy with every aspect of your reality? If not, remember that you have created abundance, you are just not happy with it. Once you realize that, you can focus your manifestation efforts on creating an abundance of what brings you success, joy, love and peace. Monitor your thoughts and words, review your beliefs and change the ones that limit you, take action when doors open and opportunities present themselves and step into your power. Create an abundance of things that make you glad to greet each new day and live the life of your dreams. It is within your power to create abundance—use it to create an abundance of joy and blessings.
