9 Steps to a More Abundant Life

Many of us are bogged down by our lives.  We are stressed, short of time, tired, or running our lives on a treadmill every day.  We know that this is not the correct way to live.  We do not know how to free ourselves to live more fully and more abundantly. There are simple things we can do that don’t take time or money.  These things merely take a change of attitude. Here are 9 of them:

1. Become totally honest financially.  Know each month how much money you need to a lot towards all of your responsibilities before you partition off your disposable income.  This will become extremely rewarding when you become able to meet all of your bills on time every month and your credit begins improving.

2. Don’t clutter up your life or your living space by constantly acquiring the next best thing.  It is better to not fill your life up with the things you don’t really want. Ask yourself if you want each thing before you acquire it. The goal is not to have an abundant amount of material objects.  Rather, the goal is to live your life abundantly by seeking out the objects and experiences that truly resonate within you.

3. Tithing is often associated with religion, but it is also possible to tithe in a non-religious context. This appears to be a fundamental aspect of practicing abundant living.  Every time you freely give money away to someone with a greater need, you are implying that you are confident that you will receive more money, and that you do not suffer from any lack. There is a lot of power behind showing your confidence in abundance. The traditional amount to tithe is 10% of your income. I’ve recommended this to several different people.  It seems that the most common response is that once they began doing this, more abundance showed up in their lives. I do my best to tithe 10%. I’ve seen that the more I give, the more I get back, and the happier and more abundantly I live.

4. Be grateful for what you already possess. Focus on the good that is already in your life. It is very easy to be drawn into the trap of constantly dwelling on what we don’t have.  When this occurs, be mindful of it and change your thought pattern.  Focus on the many friends and family members in your life.  Begin spending some time each day, even if it is only for a few minutes, thinking about the good things in your life.  In the morning when you wake up, start each day thinking of 5 things that you are grateful for, and express these things out loud (this will make you more apt to remember them).

5. Resentment, jealousy, envy and self-pity interfere with the free-flow of abundance. When you are jealous or envious of someone, or of someone else’s possessions, it implies to the universe that you believe that the things that person possesses are not also available for you to possess. If you find it difficult to let go of these feelings, Bach flower remedies may help. Try the remedy ‘willow’ to counteract resentment and self-pity, or try ‘holly’ for envy, jealousy and greed.

Forgive those that may have wronged you.

6. Forgiving those that have wronged you is a part of living life abundantly. Keeping a hold of your anger, however justifiable it may seem, keeps you stuck in the past.  You are then unable to progress forward into a better future. If it is difficult to let go of your negative feelings, try writing a letter expressing all of your anger, hurt or envy. Write until you have listed all of your feelings, and then burn the letter.  This will release you of the negative energy holding you back.

7. Open yourself up to receiving from other people. Many people find it difficult, but being able to receive is healthy. You may need to practice receiving. Think of the pleasure you receive from giving. When other people give to you, this is their opportunity to feel that pleasure.  By not receiving generously, you are denying other people the pleasure of giving.  This creates a negative energy balance and prohibits abundances’ flow.

8. Come to the realization that, in general, good luck plays a very small role in people’s lives.  When you put your faith in good luck, then you open up the possibility of bad luck occurring as well.  People who put their faith in good luck often spend their lives waiting for good things to happen to them. People who don’t believe in luck tend to go out and make good things happen for themselves.  Be proactive and make your own good luck.

9. Firmly believe that there is enough money, food, love and happiness in the world for everyone to live abundantly.  This may be the hardest one to accomplish.   It can be very hard to believe when we are constantly shown war and starvation in the newspapers and on the TV.  The majority of this strife, need and anger is caused by people who believe that they do not possess enough.  Often, these are the people that substitute money and oil in their mind for all the other abundances of life.  Every day, do something positive to help other people, and strive to work towards correcting the imbalance as best you can.  Start to live your life recognizing that there are inequalities and shortages, but know that if we work together, than it will be possible to correct these imbalances. 

Here are a couple of positive affirmations for you:
"The vibrant wellness in my body increases every day."
"I feel completely at ease and comfortable with all types of people."
"I have the power to change myself."
