Abundance is usually what people refer to as money, however, abundance means a great deal more than that. You could say, abundance is an overflowing cup of energy. Whether you want that energy to be uplifting or not is your choice. However, many find money to be the pesky part about abundance that they cannot conquer, so I will focus a bit on this aspect specifically today as well as the big picture of abundance.
When we focus on emotions like anger, resentment, and depression, we tend to drain abundance in all aspects of our lives. Also, when we tend to focus on work that drains our energy, we tend to fall ill over time, thus draining the abundant physical energy we have.
So then, one key here is focus. Yes, many of us have heard, focus on what you do want, and then you will create it. Except, it doesn't quite always work just from this alone. Finding out what you like to do, getting clear, and then taking actions toward that desire is paramount. Yet, too many people worry if they take action, and release themselves from doing what they don't want, that they will then go without and not be able to take care of themselves. It indeed takes courage to do what you want, and you may have some time periods where you struggle a bit.
In my own experience, even in those periods of struggle, somehow things always seemed to work themselves out. They may not have always looked as I thought they should. I may have had to sleep on a floor or two, but yet I still slept. The point is, what we think is the worst case scenario when we let go and live our gifts, is usually not as bad as we think once we get there.
Here is a scenario:
Dreamer: Has a dream, but feels like they can't get what they want. There is often fear about money, and being able to take care of one self.
Universe: First responds to some of the doubts the dreamer has about being good enough or being able to accomplish their dream since the Universe is the dreamer's reflection. The dreamer then suffers from what appears to be their dream not happening.
Now here is where the important part lies. When you hit the phase above, it is important to then go deeper into the dream and find new, innovative ways to create the outcome of what you want to make money doing.
For me, it was finding a room to rent and do healings and counseling with people, even when I had very little clients at the time. I found a space that I could rent only by the hour. Yet, I believed in myself enough to keep trying.
Doing things to gain confidence at what you want
Sometimes getting trained in something gives you the confidence. Even if you already have all the skills you need, if you have no training in it, there may be an unconscious place inside that believes you don't deserve to make money at it if you haven't put effort in training. So I always encourage people to take classes, workshops, and read, so you feel you have put effort into growing at your craft. If anything, this convinces the unconscious mind that it is worthy.
Lack of motivation
Sometimes the problem is also not being organized or motivated to try the very thing you want to do. If this is the case, take a look at this issue in a multi-faceted way. Are you eating foods that bring your energy level down, and make you feel tired and unmotivated? Are you overdoing coffee or alcohol, thus feeling tired and crashing from these things later in the day? Food has a lot to do with motivation. Take some B vitamins to increase your daily energy. Also, for focusing issues on a physical level, blue green algae can really assist brain chemistry.
For emotional and spiritual reasons for lack of motivation, take a look deeply at any messages and self-sabotage beliefs you may be holding in your being, and let these beliefs be set free simply by becoming conscious of them and then intending to set them free. Are their old childhood messages about how you should live in the world? Did you learn growing up that you can only make money at "regular jobs?" Or on the flip side, are you not being practical? For example, you may be the kind of person that does not like to plan anything. You may feel elevated only when doing what you are in the mood to do. Many get confused here on Earth because we are taught in many spiritual systems to be present. However, their needs to be a balance between letting things flow, versus, deciding the flow. This is the middle path. You see, it is not about just doing it when in the mood. Merging the spirit world and the physical world is a huge piece of balancing this out. You may have to sometimes start projects or create a schedule for yourself that you stick to so that you can get things done. This may feel against your grain, but it is just step one to leading the life you want. The ultimate goal is to only work when in the mood, but you can only get there in phases. Keep focused on what you want and take action towards it daily. As you build your new abundant life, you will find you have more power over when and how things happen in your daily schedule.
I also see people looking into their future reality, and seeing the final outcome, as the first outcome they want. Realize, that even if you start small, with constant focus, intention, and flexibility, the abundance will happen. Try not to be attached to the timing either. Trust in your ability to create and know the divine timing is set just right for your manifestation of abundance doing what you love. The flexibility part means you allow the outcomes and the path to change as you see where the Universe is guiding you and fueling what you are doing. For example, you may have one idea you think is great, but the deeper you go into it, and put energy towards it through action, the more you are being pulled towards taking the gifts you have towards something else you did not expect. Watch the energy and flow. Do not fight against it when it is strong.
Being drained by conflict
I spoke at the beginning that we can drain our abundance in all aspects of our lives when we focus too much on conflicts. Even if there are people in your life that bring conflict into your reality, do not let that be your focus. Deal with it only as it comes up, and then train the mind to not even think about the person, persons, or situation. Too many times people want to be right, and so then they ruminate over what has happened, or should be happening with others. All this is doing is harming your own life, so make a conscious choice to shift your thinking every time you see yourself going into the viscous loop of over-thinking about what other people are doing. Do not worry about whether someone is acting the way you think they should, or coming from ego, or in the same dimension as you. Let them be exactly where they are. If they don't do something you like, then acknowledge it only briefly and then quickly shift your focus to what you want abundance of in you life: love, joy, abundance of work using your unique gifts etc. If you find yourself consumed by thoughts about others, then do some inner healing on self. Here is a self-healing on how to release others below to assist. This may seem separate from creating money and abundance, but I promise you, it is not.
Healing for Releasing Feelings and Attachment to Conflict with Others
Ground yourself by visualizing deep roots going into the Earth.
Imagine a beautiful violet flame, a shield for transmutation around your whole body and energy field.
Call forth your ancestors of the divine light to assist you as well as the circle of Divine Great Grandmothers of planet Earth of the light. Ask them to assist you, to hold you, to nurture you, and give you wisdom in this situation. Tell them you wish to be free of focus on others outside yourself and for grace to come into your conflict.
Call in and activate your own higher self connection by asking your higher self of the light to fill up the central channel in your body with higher self energy. Breathe deep.
Call now the higher self of the light of the person, persons involved in the situation. Ask there permission on a soul level if you may send light to them for their healing. Sit and listen. You may feel a yes, not hear a yes necessarily. (If you get a no, then do this process for yourself only. I have never heard a no. Most people don't want to be in conflict on a higher self level).
Call now in the white light of Christ consciousness. See the Christ light bathing them in light, melting away whatever it is you have sensed from them. What do you think they are upset about, even if you don't agree? See the white Christ light melting the roots of their pain, and then melting the external manifestation of it (what they say or do).
Now send love and forgiveness to your self first for whatever your part is, and even forgiveness to self for draining your own energy by this focus. See the white light of Christ consciousness now flooding through your whole body.
Lastly, send forgiveness to them. It doesn't matter how big or small what they did or are doing is. Not forgiving them only harms yourself. Send forgiveness by simply intending forgiveness be sent to them. Sometimes you can see your forgiveness as a color or light bathing them.
Close out your healing session by affirming, I release all focus on conflict with ____(fill in the blank). I am free to be abundant in the joy, love, and using my gifts in this world. And so it is. So be it.
Thank the ancestors and grandmothers for assisting in this session as well as the Christ energies. You can substitute Buddha or any other deity you feel has a high light frequency in this healing.
Watch as this behind the scenes healing helps your life so you may focus on what is important. You and your abundant gifts. You are a light in this world, and you deserve all that both the physical world and spiritual world holds. This includes whatever we use as currency here, or being abundant through bartering for your needs. Try not pay attention to the numbers in the bank account. Are people doing things for you for free? Is abundance showing up in different forms as well? Pay attention.
I see now all reading this, gaining the missing pieces towards their abundant life. I wish for all to live their most greatest life now, living a life of fullness and joy. And so it is.
