The rat race of modern life finds most of us chasing the idea of abundance and success. We want more money so we can live an easier life and yet, the more we earn, the more we need. Are we chasing something that is unreal? How much is enough? In my work as a PSYCH-K® facilitator, I am witness to the quest of many people for the ever elusive commodity of abundance. By far the most common is the quest for financial freedom. The world today revolves around money, whether you like it or not, we cannot live without it.
The book, The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks explains how we create our reality through thought. Without a doubt, there is power in positive thinking. So why are we not all wealthy, if all it takes is positive thought? Well, mainly because we have been “programmed” with the beliefs of our parents. “Money doesn’t grow on trees” or “money is the root of all evil” are beliefs which seem to be most common. But what about the belief that artists are poor or healing modalities should be offered for free? Reprogramming these beliefs is quick and easy with PSYCH-K®. It is more difficult to change the way we think.
Worry and negative thoughts are powerful creative tools too. And when it comes to positive thinking, we often have the wrong end of the stick. If I ask you NOT to think about pink elephants, you will immediately think of pink elephants. We draw what we focus our thoughts on. When I see a fancy car, I think about how it is beyond my reach, and in so doing, I am focused on the lack of that car. The more I see that which I cannot afford, the less I can afford. So how do I get myself out of this pattern?
Go for a beach walk…
A solution came to mind as I walked along the beach early one morning. I love walking on the beach. The wind blows away the cobwebs and I revel in the sensation of the sand below my feet and the water gently tugging at my ankles. With clear thought comes new insight. Never, not even once, have I arrived at the beach with the nagging fear that the ocean will have disappeared in the night. The tide may be high or low, but the sea is always there. It is constantly moving. Waves roll in like soldiers marching up the beach. In a turmoil of sea sand and broken shells, the water foams to a standstill before getting sucked back to sea, dancing with and through the other incoming waves on its way out.
My money is just like the sea. It is energetic. Like the sea, money likes flow, it doesn’t like to stagnate. It flows from person to person and from place to place. Money flows in as I am paid for my services and money flows out as I buy what I want or need. Some months the tide may be high, money wise, and other times there is a low spring tide.
If I can see my financial situation as fluid, always coming and going but never all gone, then I feel less stress and I am able to live in a more abundant feeling space. When I have unexpected expenses, I tell myself the tide is low. This feels so much better than thinking I have lost money, overspent, blown my budget. I know that the tide will turn, that flow will be restored. I focus on flow rather than lack.
Finding abundance in all areas of life…
But abundance is not just about money. When I focus on the abundance of nature all around me, it always lifts my spirits. Changing our mind-set means feeling grateful for the abundance of fresh air, not grumbling about the wind. We need to be able to see Nature’s abundance in the weedy flower bed and the night time chorus of crickets. We are surrounded by abundance. It may not always be to our liking, but it is undeniable. According to the Law of Attraction, the more I focus on abundance of any sort, the more abundance I will see.
Moving to the seaside was a scary decision but I have learnt two important things this year. Dress like an onion (in layers) and view life like the ocean… Whether the tide be high or low, have faith that everything will always work out just as it is supposed to; perfectly.
