Mind Shift: Focus on Abundance
There are four holistic approaches to shifting our money mindset from lack to one of plenty:
Visualizing a happier, positive image of an abundant life that meets our needs, as well as the needs of others, is a great way to start. We can write our own script and act out our life the way we want it. Dr. Wayne Dyer wrote in his book ‘Real Magic’ that we need to “Try to imagine a state of unlimited possibilities as being possible for you.” Visualization while in a meditative, relaxed state will cement our new attitude into our consciousness and send out positive energies that will match up with corresponding results, clearing the path to a new reality.
At any time, we can choose what future we want and begin making changes for our highest good. Think about it. Our present predicament is a result of every decision and thought we had in the past. A life of abundance can be as simple as imagining a better future now.
Changing our self-talk is another method to unsnarl our past programming. Affirmations will end the self-defeating negative way we perceive the world. If we have convinced ourselves we aren’t good enough, perfect enough, old enough, smart enough, fast enough, rich enough, or lucky enough, then we need to wise up to those lies. They only produce frustration in our lives.
We need to start speaking the truth about ourselves. The truth is that we have unlimited potential and power within us. We can get back into harmony by changing our thought patterns and start believing in something more honest and empowering.
Write Your Affirmations
Write down a few sentences such as “I am smart enough to succeed;” “I am releasing the past and letting it go;” “I am truly lucky and blessed;” “The universe is abundant and there are plenty of great jobs for me to enjoy;” “I choose to see myself as successful and happy;” to name a few. We can read this starting in the morning and as much as we can until right before sleep. Reading an affirmation as the last thing we do before sleep will carry it into our subconscious where the past programming has been stored.
Meditation is a way to clear these blockages once and for all. Going within to the unlimited field of possibilities will free you of labels, resistance, judgment, and fear. It will break through the hypnosis of social conditioning surrounding money.
The brain is like a computer and the negative attitudes we have accumulated over time are the programs we feed into the computer. Meditation reboots the brain by deleting negativity and blockages that limit our ideas about prosperity. Inputting positive programs while in a state of meditation will lead to success in the outer world.
Meditate and visualize for 15 minutes first thing in the morning to set us up for an awesome day. We will carry that peace with us and attract amazing people and experiences into our lives. Meditate again at the end of the day to let go of any accumulated stress physically and mentally. This is another excellent time to reset our brain for better health, happiness, and abundance.
When we close our eyes and go within, we dissolve our egos and outside distractions. We relax physically, calm our emotions and thoughts are still. That is when we come into contact with inner peace and love. Like an unused rusty tap, it may only drip at first, but the more we practice silent time with our true selves, the easier and more effective it becomes. Before you know it, the faucet is flowing with miracles and more.
Meditation shifts our energy from wanting and struggling to positive, active energy of purpose, intention, and gratitude. According to Deepak Chopra, abundance and affluence are our natural state and all we have to do is “restore the memory of what we already know.”
Discover the Truth Within
We can stop living on automatic, unconsciously going through the motions as dictated by a fearful past by meditating daily to discover the truth within. It is time to stop blaming society and our past and time to shift our mindsets from lack to plenty. To quote Glinda the Good Witch, “You had the power all along, my dear.”
