Letter A is for abundance
Today is Day one letter A of the A-Z challenge.
Today's letter is A.
I want to talk about Abundance (in your life).
You may think, what does Abundance have to do with being healthy and well. I think the mind and body connection is a huge part of how we heal and how we feel.
The dictionary has a few meanings for abundance: One says the quantity or amount of something, which is ok- but I like the definition I found at Positively positive www.positivelypositive.com
Their definition says:" The essential meaning of abundance is that you are solidly happy who you are no external events good or bad can subtract your from your happiness."
Top 5 tips to having and receiving abundance
1) Look at the way you look and care for money.
Are you open to receiving more money- new jobs- meeting possible new clients or prospects. How do you feel about money? Do you save? Do you keep money in your wallet or pockets all crumbled? or do you keep it neat, and show it how you appreciate it by facing all the money in one direction, and flattening out crinkled dollars.
2.) Remember your thoughts are real and can they carry energy. SO if you say I am never going to get paid more- than you won't. If you say I am never going to have more clients, than you won't. IF you say I a won't find a new friend, boyfriend or significant other- chances are you might not.
3.)You can reduce your resistance to new things and raise your vibration, with exercise, positive thoughts in a nightly gratitude journal. Write down at night 3 things you were grateful for that day.
4)More self-acceptance of who you are and what you are- brings you closer to more abundance- I did the book A course in Miracles by Gabrielle Bernstein and I felt this book helped me slow down and think about who I was, and that it was ok to be ME the way I am without changing.
5) Try practicing mantras or affirmations that say things like:
Things always have a way of working out for the best…”
“Life has a way of working out for me…”
“I love waiting for what the Universe has in store for me…”
“There is a bigger and better plan I can’t see yet…”
Before I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I never nothing about the Law of Attraction, and if I did, I didn't believe it. Now that I have studied it, read books about it, and continue to work with other health coaches and female entrepreneurs and we focus on it, I have seen it work. I know positive energy has a powerful connection to abundance. The key is that you must be a good receiver, if you are not good at accepting compliments, gifts or hugs- you may not be receiving some of the energy and abundance that is coming your way. Practice being more open and receiving of help, gifts, and compliments.
IF someone says, " I love your dress." Don't say, " Oh, this I got at target on a 50% off sale." Just say- Thank you.
