Creating Abundance

Many people comment on the fact that I seem to easily create abundance in my life and think there is some mystery or trick to doing it themselves.  Nothing could be further from the truth - it is actually very easy once you understand that it is all how you think or feel about it.

I have created some very simple but effective little ways that always produce great results for me.  Part of that occurs just because I believe that I have the power to influence everything I do. 

When paying bills it is typical to feel a sense of lack, money going out.  So, I decided to turn that around.  Now when I sit down to write checks I think to myself that this is no longer money that I owe but it is actually money that I am earning.  I can't tell you how often I do this especially if I have a large bill to be paid and have received a check in the mail for the exact amount. 

Before and during medical examinations I concentrate on the strength and health of my body and that even when the results seem negative I focus on the opportunity I have for learning about what I can do to improve my physical condition.

I also share my well being with others in any way that I can, even if it is only to send them a prayer for whatever they may need in their life.  Every time I give my time or energy to help someone else it comes back to me ten fold.  It really is the little things that make the biggest difference and that combined with genuine gratitude creates beautiful abundance in my life.

House Proud

A dear friend of mine will tell you that she is 'house proud' and I understand that very well because of my mother.  She scrubbed and cleaned well into the night to make sure that everything was spotless.  It always bothered her that even though I like to keep a tidy and clean home, I didn't share her enthusiasm for the serious jobs like washing walls and hand scrubbing floors.

Every year when it is time for spring cleaning I think of my mother and smile knowing that she would be happy to see that she taught me well and that I can also be house proud even if it is only on occasion.

Unexpected Joy

I love those beautiful unexpected moments in life that surprise and delight me.  Like returning from spending the holiday with my daughter and her family when she called to say my 1 year old granddaughter had been asking for me since I left.   Or turning on the television late at night and seeing a concert with the reunited Mavericks.  It’s those simple and beautiful things that truly make life worth living.

What I learned from love

It has taken a very long time but I am finally beginning to see myself in a new way and love the person I see.  It is interesting that I did not discover this by focusing on myself but instead it was while I was thinking of a beautiful relationship I had in the past.  It felt so wonderful that I wanted it to go on forever, alas it did not.  But what I realize now is that I was given an incredible gift - not only did I have an amazing experience with another person but I am now able to see myself as that woman who has so much love inside that she can freely give to others.

Gain Stability

I have found myself increasingly anxious and bored lately.  I must be very careful during these times because I can make huge changes in my life, not necessarily because I want to but because I need to do something, anything, that's different or new.  I do enjoy variety and change but there is contentment to be found in the mundane and it can foster great creativity.  So for now, I will slow down and look forward to gaining peaceful stability before I jump back into chaos.
