What is Abundance? Usually when we think about abundance we are thinking about how much money or wealth we have. But, abundance is so much more. It is about having satisfying relationships, successful careers, health, happiness, freedom….everthing that makes up our lives. It is about how you feel about your life. Do you feel abundant or lack? It is Interesting to observe that how we feel about our abundance is based on our perspective. There are people who have a great deal but they feel lack, causing them to be dissatisfied, striving and struggling. Then there are people without a lot of money but great relationships, families, hobbies, jobs and are very happy. These people appreciate what they have and feel abundance. I believe feeling abundance is the key to having a great life.
Rev Dr Patrick Cameron, Spiritual Director for Spiritual Living Edmonton in Alberta, says, “Abundance is about having combined with gratitude for what we do have.” I like this perspective because it recognizes that abundance is about having and focuses on the appreciation of our having it. How often do we take what we have for granted? When you receive something do you really appreciate it or do you complain about why it wasn’t sooner or bigger or ?? Cameron’s quote reminds us to appreciate having just because we have it. The beauty of this is that the law of attraction says that the more we appreciate and think positively about something we will attract more of it. Certainly, a great approach to having more abundance.
May you have and feel Abundance in all aspects of your life.
