IS IT TIME TO FLEX YOUR ABUNDANCE MUSCLE?
A new year is a clean slate. An opportunity for a fresh start to make it your best year, but don’t we say that every year? Let’s do it this year and create more abundance in our lives. Are you with me?
GET YOUR THOUGHTS ALIGNED
“When we know that whatever we send out comes back, we begin to be afraid of our own boomerangs.” - Florence Scovel Shinn
Create an abundance mindset, not a scarcity mindset. Don’t be a slave to your own doubts and fears. If you base your thoughts on what you don’t want, you’ll continue to get just that! When your thoughts about money are on fear or lack, it is time to start canceling those thoughts and replacing them with positive thoughts toward abundance.
Thoughts of doubt and fear around abundance or anything are like poison to the mind. This can seem highly challenging if you are struggling financially and need more confidence. This is how. Pretend that you are abundantly wealthy by thinking with that mindset. You already have all that you need! Walk around with your head held high and your shoulders back, and put on that beautiful smile of yours. Add an extra beat to your step. Posture yourself in a way you would imagine a confident, financially secure person would walk about. Think about that; what does that look like to you? Peace and happiness come when all fear is banished.
Work on feeding your mind with positivity, and make a commitment to stop feeding your mind with negativity. Take it one thought at a time. Notice when a negative thought arises and switch it to a positive. Free yourself from all lack and limitation, and let the life that is divinely planned for you unfold.
Personalize your intention.
When setting an intention or creating affirmations for abundance, take possession of them by
using the words I, my, and me. Claim abundance as yours because it is meant for you; it is for your highest good.
Here are a few of my favorite powerful affirmations you can use.
“I am open to limitless possibilities.”
“I am creative and open to new solutions.”
“I attract miracles into my life.”
“I am open to receiving unexpected opportunities.”
“I am aligned with the energy of abundance.”
See it as already happening.
Don’t look to people, places, or things for your abundance. Envision how you will share your abundance with others for the greater good of all. See yourself completing your to-do list, work projects, and personal projects, fulfilling your dreams and goals, and paying all of your bills.
YOUR WORDS ARE YOU’RE MAGIC WAND
The prosperity writer Francis Scovel Shinn said it best. “Your word is your wand.”
There is vibratory power in the words that you use. When you catch yourself saying things like I can’t afford that… or I’ll never have that… say “cancel that” out loud and replace it with positivity: “I now free myself from lack, I have plenty!” or “What is meant for me will be, and I am grateful!” Come up with your own ways of wording your new positivity phrases.
DECLUTTER, DECLUTTER, DECLUTTER
Make your space conducive to creating an abundant life. Clear out the old and make room for all the new. Remember that you are attracting abundance! Take it one room at a time, and don’t forget to dust it! Make a habit of smudging your space and set intentions of love, peace,
and prosperity when you do so.
GIVE YOURSELF SOME POSITIVITY WITH AFFIRMATIONS
Why not be your own cheerleader? Boost your confidence and your mood with some positive affirmations. Repeat them, write them on little sticky notes and place them on your mirror, in your car, or anywhere you frequently spend time. This will serve as a reminder that you can attract whatever you desire. For abundance, I like this one from John Randolph Price: “I am boundless abundance in radiant expression.”
CONNECT WITH THE ELEMENTS
Connect with the Earth Element and bring some plants into your space. As you care for these living gifts from Mother Nature, keep an abundance mindset. As your plant begins to thrive, so do you!
LET’S NOT FORGET TO BE GRATEFUL
Expressing gratitude is giving back what you have been blessed with. You have been
blessed, haven’t you? Of course, you have, and in more ways than one. Starting a gratitude journal will remind you of all of the blessings you have received, from the smallest, like not forgetting your glasses on Wednesday, to the sweet, like the smile the person sent to you as you were walking your dog this morning, and to the biggest like the promotion you received at work. Write out what you are grateful for with joyful thanksgiving.
