Abundance exists everywhere in the Universe. No matter where we look, we see evidence of this abundance. From countless animal species to diverse ecosystems, Mother Nature is solid proof that abundance exists in overflow when we allow it to be. As human beings, we are also part of nature and thus are bestowed with the same gift of overflow when we allow it to be.
Abundance by definition means plenty, or a very large quantity of something. In nature, it is evident through the innate tendency of life to manifest, grow, reproduce and become more. On the 3-dimensional plane, it is evident by new things being constantly invented; new cars being produced; new houses being built, and new jobs created. On a cosmic level, scientists have long found that the Universe is always expanding and growing, with new stars being created on the regular.
People often associate abundance with strictly the financial. Wealth, and having a lot of money is considered to have abundance in life. However, abundance manifests in many other ways, not only as plenty of money and plenty of possessions but also plenty of a whole 'lot of other feel-good things in life such as:
Abundance in love.
Abundance of friendships.
Abundance of opportunities.
Abundance of fun.
Abundance of food.
Abundance of good deeds.
Abundance of energy.
Abundance of trees, grass or water.
Abundance of time to do what you want.
Abundance of spirituality in your life.
Abundance of everything on this planet.
You may not currently feel as if you have access to all of this abundance but it is only because of the internal + external barriers that have been created and compounded over time that prevent the abundance that you desire from manifesting in your own life.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
The same principle applies to that cash money. Your task is not to seek money, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Admittedly, it's easier said than done on both fronts.
If you've ever been burned by love before, opening your heart again to others can feel like one of the most difficult things to do. As a person who managed to break away from a 7-year empath/narcissist marriage dynamic, learning to trust myself and others again has been a scary rebuilding process. A process that never truly ends to be completely honest! However, when you commit to searching for and actively working to unblock the barriers within yourself that keep you from giving + receiving authentic love, not only are you committing to becoming a better person + partner, but you'll also align yourself with a better person + partner and not be doomed to repeat those painful experiences of the past again! The Parasitic Relationship Between A Narcissist And An Empath is a great article to learn more about this toxic dynamic.
Similarly, many opportunities for success and fulfillment don't materialize due to our own barriers that don't allow for those opportunities to more naturally flow in. In life, we don't always get what we want. We get what we're in alignment for. Meaning, if you are not vibrating or performing at the level of the people, places + things you truly want, chances are you won't get them or you'll always find yourself working tirelessly chasing after them. One of the most effective ways I've found to better position yourself to bring in more abundance on a personal level is to work on being a person of good character. What defines a "good character" is often highly subjective but generally, being a person of good character means you actively strengthen your level of integrity, honesty, loyalty, empathy, accountability, and self-control. 6 Essential Traits of Good Character is a great article to read to dive deeper into the character-building journey.
When it comes to financial abundance, there is an overflow of it just waiting for you to align with it. At any given second of the day, money is zipping by us at the speed of an electronic transfer and there's no reason that some of that cash shmoney can't be going to YOU. Yes, YOU. I'm talking to YOU. But you have to be willing to ask yourself the tough question, "How can I become the type of person who gets that type of money?" Then do the work necessary to develop yourself into the type of person who does get the type of money that you've been desiring.
Need some help figuring out where to make more of that money? Maybe these will spark a creative idea or two!
7 Types of Income
01 // Earned Income Money that you earn by doing something or by spending your time e.g. the money that you make in your job, the salary you get by working for someone else. 02 // Profit Income Money that you earn by selling something for more than it costs you to make. e.g. Businesses selling their goods at a profit, whether at the retail or wholesale level, as distributors or manufacturers.
03 // Interest Income Money that you get as a result of lending your money to someone else to use, e.g. putting it in the bank, lending it to the government in the form of buying Treasury Bills etc.
04 // Dividend Income Money that you get as a return on shares of a company you own. For e.g. the dividend that most companies announce at the year end.
05 // Rental Income Money that you get as a result of renting out an asset that you have, like a house, or a building. 06 // Capital Gains Money that you get as a result of increase in value of an asset that you own. For e.g. when you buy shares at $10 and sell them at $11 - the $1 is capital gains, or if you buy your house for $200,000 and sell it for $220,000 the $20,000 is your capital gain. 07 // Royalty Income Money you get as a result of letting someone use your products, ideas, or processes. They make all the revenues, they do all the hard work and you get a small percentage of what ever they earn e.g. if you have a Subway Franchise - the royalty you send to Subway for using their processes, their logo, and marketing etc. is royalty income for them. If you are a writer, you get paid for every copy of the book sold.
Whether your goal is to increase your abundance in life, love, or money, know and believe that it is possible for you no matter your past. If you're not currently where you want to be, it's not too late to course correct and finally live your most fulfilling life free to experience real love, true wealth, life purpose with a lot of profits too!
Stay fabulous, fierce + financially savvy bellas!
