#DailyWritingChallenge Day 72: Abundance

Abundance means plenty, or a very large quantity of something. It is the innate tendency of nature and of life to manifest, grow, and become more. It is the tendency of the life force to produce more, and create more of everything.

To have an abundance of something is to have more than you need. It’s often used to describe positive qualities, such as “an abundance of love.” Abundance is the opposite of scarcity.

Do you ever have a word that keeps showing up?

A word that isn’t in your everyday vocabulary.

A word that isn’t one you use, that keeps appearing in conversations, in things you read and in things you hear?

That is ‘abundance’ for me. It has been spotlighted in the last few weeks and I am intrigued. I am curious about its symbolism and significance.

Abundance is not confined to money. It isn’t tangible. It’s a perception — a state of mind.

Abundance is the relationship we have with ourselves and the world.

Reflective questions to consider:

Am I satisfied with myself? Am I satisfied with my place in the world? If not, what changes can I make to reach that satisfaction? How can I leverage my community for help?

So I have been exploring what this word means to me and my life as it shows up. I have shared below 8 quotes I am musing on and created 8 questions I am exploring as a consequence for you to reflect on. Perhaps you may engage with them in your journal or as a vision board.

What intentions am I putting out to the universe?

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”.

Paulo Coelho

Am I fulfilled and serving my purpose?

“Doing what you want is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life”.

Wayne Dyer

What limits am I putting on myself?

“The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts”.

Marianne Williamson  

What do I need to let go of?

“As I let go of the need to arrange my life, the universe brings abundant good to me”.

Deepak Chopra

How impactful is my inner work?

“Abundance comes from within, it comes from thought, intention, attention and expectation”. 

Deepak Chopra

What is my relationship with me?

“A flow of happiness and abundance will manifest when you have reached the deepest level of yourself”.

Deepak Chopra

Am I tuned into my soul?

“Abundance is not something we acquire, it is something we tune into”.

Wayne Dyer  

Am I enough?

“Abundance is not a number or acquisition. It is the simple recognition of enoughness”.

Alan Cohen

Deepak Chopra hosts a 21 Day Abundance Challenge which you can follow and commit to. I have been told it helps you to visualise what you want the universe to manifest for you. You can find out more here. 

I will leave you with 12 Beliefs for Manifesting Abundance that I found as I was reading around the subject:

1. Begin from a place of love.

2. Believe beyond your five senses.

3. Practice non-attachment and learn to allow.

4. Place yourself in highly vibrational circumstances.

5.Understand the difference between inspired and fear-based action.

6.Let go of money beliefs that no longer serve you.

7. Spend money, but don’t waste it.

8. Visualize your end game.

9. Appreciate debt and abundance equally.

10. Declutter your environment.

11. Get inspired by your surroundings.

12. Love your money.
