Do you ever feel so driven to achieve something more, that you actually forget to notice what you’ve already created and have right in front of you?
Or have you ever had that feeling of being really grateful for something in your life, only to have the moment interrupted by a negative thought of something you’re lacking?
This is the interplay of two mindsets: abundance and lack.
I’d like to share with you my epiphany this morning regarding how to activate the state of abundance so you can create more of what you want in business and life.
The internal voice of disconnection
I’m delivering this blog from a beautiful apartment that was so generously lent to me for the next couple of days in Surfers Paradise, Queensland Australia.
I was sitting here having a beautiful breakfast that I cooked for myself. I was looking at the ocean and the sun shining in directly across the beach, directly across the ocean, directly onto me, and I had a moment of gratitude. I had a moment of saying to myself, “Look what you’ve created. Look what you’ve manifested for yourself.”
Then something really interesting happened, this voice came in and said, “But you don’t own it, but it’s not yours,” and I felt in that moment … It was this voice sounded, “You don’t own this apartment, you know? This is not yours. This is somebody else’s.”
The presence of this voice actually disconnected me from a very important state, and that state is abundance. Because we live in a paradigm, we live in a consciousness where we’re led to believe, and, in many cases, we often fall into a mindset that you have to own things. If they’re not yours, if there isn’t a piece of paper with a signature on it that says it’s yours, that if you’re not the possessor of this thing, then the experience of it is, therefore, invalid and it’s not yours. It’s not for you to enjoy perhaps.
In many ways, this triggers us into striving for owning more, accumulating more, storing more, showing that we have more, and feeling like we have to be more than who we are. In reality, what it does is it actually makes us less than who we are.
When I had that realisation about that thought and just allowed myself to be in the moment, the experience of being in this experience, not necessarily having it or owning anything around me, just being in it, there was a massive shift in my being and into this beautiful state of Abundance.
The thing is that all these things that we want to own and that we want to achieve in life, whether it’s buying a house, having a successful business, building a purposeful business, having lots of money, or having a really good balanced lifestyle, doing what you love, living how you love, in many ways, in the pursuit to create that, what happens is that we get lost along the way because we feel like we’re trying to create it and own it. It’s actually the process of thinking that we must have that, that when we have it that we own it, actually gets in the way of potentially having it in the first place.
Switching into an abundance mindset
The thing is that something really important happens when you switch into this state of abundance and it’s not some hippy magic thing.
What happens is you start to attract and create and manifest more of what it is that you really want anyway. As I said, it’s not some hippy magic thing to change your external results by shifting your internal reality. It’s real because remember your state is reliant on the way that you think, feel and act. These are the three things that really have an incredibly strong influence on the results that you get in life and what you create for yourself and others. So if you can allow yourself to be more in the state of abundance you will start to think, feel and act in ways that create more of it – simple as that.
Allow, attune and let go
If you allow yourself to be more attuned to abundance by recognising that these things that we want in life are just transient anyway, we don’t actually ever own them anyway, they just come and go, even your life will come and go…
If you can let go of that attachment to it being this thing that you own and use as an aspect of your identity to prove your worth…
If you can let go of all of that, then you slip into abundance, and what happens is your thoughts, emotions and behaviours move you into a state that is more akin to creating and manifesting what you desire in life in a very real and tangible way.
That was my breakfast epiphany about abundance that I wanted to share with you.
