Open to Abundance

Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. John 16:24b (NIV)

I am delighted to be the bearer of GREAT news today; abundance is all around you! Forget half empty or even half full … the proverbial glass of your life is full to overflowing. And that overflow is God’s promise fulfilled (whether you know it or not) simply because of whose you are; not some reward for any particular deed you do.

The key to remaining connected to this powerful reality of abundance in our lives is to remain open to it with expectation and a profound knowing (READ: faith!) that the Creator’s intention for us is the goodness and well-being that springs forth from an ever-present divine love.

Well now, that is good news, isn’t it?

But too often we are so focused on what we believe we lack, that we miss the blessed forest for the trees. And when we give energy and attention to perceived lack, we cut off our ability to recognize the “seen” blessings and are therefore unable to unlock the “unseen” abundance that exists in our lives as well.

“The acknowledgment of the abundance that is all around you awakens the dormant abundance within.” A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

One of the most fundamental ways to remain open to and invite abundance into our lives is to honor the abundance already present. But when our ability to celebrate the various manifestations of wealth in our lives shuts down so too does our ability to unlock the additional blessings that God has in store.

From the moment we wake until the moment we fall sleep we are surrounded by life, by love, by nature, by mercy and by grace, just to name a few. And sometimes we uncover abundance in the most unlikely places and from the most unlikely people. But it’s there; God’s love manifesting constantly in and all around us. Therefore we don’t have to wait on our “season” because God’s love and abundance exists in all seasons. We have the opportunity to experience blessings every day and to acknowledge and thank God for this blessed reality. But as always, the choice to SHINE the light of thanksgiving on our existing abundance is ours to make.

“Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

Choose to give thanks in all circumstances and to stay open to abundance in and all around you. And know that by acknowledging God’s abundance in your life you keep open the spiritual flow of abundance so the Creator’s blessings continue to manifest in ways your life won’t have “room enough to receive.”
