Achieving Your Vision of Abundance

How can we have more abundance in our lives? It begins by noticing the abundance that we already have.

We cannot experience abundance yesterday or tomorrow. Only in this moment can we be aware of our richest blessings. Only now can we visualize those things that will represent abundance for each of us. The key is to realize that we will get no more and no less than we ask for, work toward, and believe we will receive.

Abundance does not begin with material wealth or treasure, although those things may manifest with faith and action. Abundance is first a state of mind. It arises from feelings of gratitude for all that we have and all that we visualize.

Sarah Ban Breathnach wrote, "Whatever we are waiting for -- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance -- it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."

Neither does abundance occur by chance. Lewis Grizzard (1946-1994), said, "A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It is seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see and pursuing that vision."

To experience abundance, we must first decide what abundance means for us. Then we must see ourselves as already abundant. Most importantly, we must begin to give to others in whatever capacity we are able. We eventually receive in great multiples the abundance that we bring into the lives of others.

Ask yourself this question: What do I already have in my possession that will contribute to my personal vision of abundance?

Become aware of the abundance all around you - the brilliant autumn sunsets, the sound of a friend's voice, the touch of a child's hand. Treat every breath of air and every act of love as a gift. Take nothing for granted.

The Creator wants you to be abundant. He will reward graciously all who share their faith in an abundant world with others.
