Allegory of Abundance: Understand & Create Abundance | Clear Childhood Abundance Blocks
“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend…when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present â€” love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure â€” the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.” â€” Sarah Ban Breathnach
Abundance is often associated with wealth and material possessions and our general perception of what that definition means can be seen all over social media. This has impacted all of us and why so many are living in a current state of lack. It is, however, ill-defined in this instance as, throughout my journey with mindfulness, abundance is very clearly about joy, happiness, love, kindness, and compassion within yourself.
How Our Childhood Experiences Affect Our Current Financial State
Thanks to science and psychiatric research which you can read more about here,Â we now know as children, that regardless of whether we were at an age where we could communicate or not, we were observing and listening to those around us and absorbing our environment through everything we witnessed heard and did, therefore if we had an impoverished upbringing, and as a result, repeatedly heard the negative talk on money, circumstance and experienced an overall ‘lack’ in our childhood, this would have shaped our current mental state which I refer to as our blueprint and created deep routed feelings about money and their lack of. Before you put your mind to something; study, art, leisurely pursuits, choosing a new career etc it is important to make sure that what you are pursuing will or is, shaping your mindset and must serve your inner being in order to be successful at it. Your aspirations must align with how you feel within and what you visualise to be true otherwise you will miss the mark. Doing something solely for the purpose of gaining wealth, will not get you where you need be or want to be in life. I say this because from experience, if you are not happy with what you are doing both in your spare time as well as work, then once you obtain a little bit of money, you will feel the need to spend it on accumulating material possessions and never actually achieve financial security which is no doubt what all of us want to have which is the optionÂ to buy material possessions.
How To Create Abundance
Creating abundance in your life will always be tied to what you feel you deserve. If for example, you really want an incredible relationship with someone, filled with love and who treats you incredibly well, then your first step is to go within and make sure that you truly believe that you are actually deserving of that incredible relationship, and in order to do that, you must love your self and create boundaries. Remember everyone and everything in your life is a direct reflection of who you are being and what you believe to be true. If you have been attracting the same low life or bad relationship then it is you that must change how you feel and view yourself in order to attract someone that has acquired the same beliefs about themselves. It has nothing to do with having a particular bag, particular sized breasts or height but everything to do with how you feel about yourself. In an aspect of your life, you apply this too, you won’t have to make a choice as to having one or the other whether that be a relationship, money, great health, or happiness because you will already have it all.
Emotionally, if you are feeling bankrupt, inevitably you will have to make choices and decisions within your career that compromises who you are in order to obtain great wealth; something I witnessed regularly throughout my previous career in Finance. However, if you are rich in health and love and joy within and truly understand, not just know, that you deserve the very best of what this world has to offer,Â then those decisions you come to make, will be lead with compassion and will not force you to compromise or betray your self in the process which is key and rarely pointed out. The money, the material possessions will come and allow you to make more self-serving decisions that don’t hurt anyone else or yourself but first, you must go within to establish what it is that is making you want such material abundance and emotionally why you are attached to these items. Your relationship with money has to be as incredible as the relationship you have with yourself.
I have heard many discussions on the topic of wealth/abundance and how important it is to find out what your true relationship with money is. The easiest way to find that out is if you are in a place of lack or abundance right now as you read this. Often, we can believe that we are doing our part; working hard, studying hard, improving ourselves, playing by the rules and yet we cannot seem to break through the barrier of achieving financial freedom. This again will stem from your childhood or particular experiences. There is a fantastic woman called Christie Marie Sheldon whose video I shall link at the end of this blog; her unique way of guiding you directly to these abundance blocks as they are referred to, and how to delete them from your subconscious mind is accessed via your intuition. However I have found that listening to these meditations are not enough, you also must change your behaviours, perspective and thought process towards money and that is where my experience in financial planning comes in handy; if you wish I shall do a blog on the topic.
I have found that the best way to live abundantly, does not start with you pretending that you can buy whatever you want but first, appreciating what you already have because where the Laws of Attraction (LOF) comes into play, is ‘like attracts like‘ – therefore if you are living in a state of gratitude then not only will you change how you feel about your current life, within yourself, but your surroundings will start to match what you believe to be true.
I feel there is a step by step process when it comes to accumulating wealth which I shall discuss more fully via my YouTube channel and a more detailed blog at a later date. Nevertheless, everything that you need and could possibly want that would add value to your life and overall existence is already inside of you. You have to believe that to be true and in order to feel that way, and truly understand that you already possess those gifts, your mindset is absolutely key and meditation can teach you how to access those feelings of joy, happiness, abundance and prosperity which in turn will create an attraction for everything that maintains those feelings in the future.
Remember that time is man-made, we were born without knowing about time, therefore it is important to understand that all we have in life truly, is the present moment. If you can take the time to be mindful of that point, then your perspective will, in turn, broaden over time – no pun intended – and as a result, you will start to see that you are the master of your own world and no one can take anything away from you that really matters unless you allow them to. What you think about and believe to be true in the present moment, will impact tomorrow so make sure you think positively about yourself and actively choose to be grateful, thankful. That will always be enough to change your world.
Tip: Whether it is meditation, working on your emotions, trying to be more positively both mindfully and verbally, make sure you do it every day for at least 24 days – that is how long it takes the mind to change a habit. Whatever you feed your brain visually, verbally and emotionally, will remain there. Choose wisely.
