If you knew you were limiting your abundance, would you stop? Become awake to the limitations you are putting in your space by remembering that everything is energy. We are in a living universe. We are creating the landscape of our lives every second of every day.
So often we say to ourselves “I don’t have enough to pay for (fill in the blank). “I can’t change jobs, or start my own business because (fill in the blank). “I can’t do that seminar because (fill in the blank)” We justify our lack of abundance and make it very plausible. Smart people are the biggest offenders. We are accomplished at explaining away our distractions and our fear.
We must remember that just like our body weight or body temperature, we have a set point in our consciousness. That set point determines our ability to expand or have more in our lives. For instance, if you are used to making $50,000 a year. Your set point is $50,000. Your consciousness is doing what you have asked it to do by helping you create $50,000. What happens when we try to expand is we typically feel some level of discomfort. It's new. We are not familiar with it. When the unfamiliar comes into our consciousness our perfect system alerts us to a potential danger. We may experience fear or doubt. It is really our perfect mechansim asking us if we want to proceed. We have to choose to proceed, and trust higher consciousness to help us manifest our objectives.
There are two parts to this.
1) We live most of our lives on auto pilot. We have learned and or been taught an abundance method that works in our life to the degree it works. Those unconscious patterns are entrenched and powerful. In order to change the patterns you must intentionally redirect your energy, your thoughts and your feelings. It is something that requires practice but it can be done with practice and consistency.
A few years ago NASA did a study with astronauts. They had each of the participants, there 5 or 6, wear special goggles that inverted everything. Up was down, down was up. For the first few days, and weeks, it was extremely uncomfortable for everyone. They even slept with these goggles on. It was a 24/7 activity. On day 26 one of the participants had an amazing thing occur. Even though he still had the goggles on everything shifted back to normal. Up was up, down was down. His brain helped him recreate his reality to bring his awareness back into balance. Within a few days, the same thing happened with all the other participants.
The magic number for changing your thoughts, changing how you receive and process information is about 30 days. If you will retrain your brain, and create a new set point for your abundance, and be relentless with it, you will experience a change in your life.
(2) When you are trying to recreate your life, base your recreation on what you want. Not on what you hope will happen. Too often people say "I will match my best month plus 10%. That's seems reasonable. That is not a heart driven position. Ask for what you truly want to see in your life. What you truly want in your heart of hearts. This is where your pay dirt lives. If you aspire toward hope rather than a heart driven purpose you will miss the mark. There is no power anywhere but in the wisdom that lives in our heart space.
It is a great practice to write down what success means to you. It is a great practice to write what your life will look like in a year, as if it were now. You would write, "today is May 2nd, 2011. I am so grateful my house is paid. I am thrilled to be taking a trip around the world. I am blessed that I can serve others in a profound manner." Each day, at least three times a day, imagine your life "as if" the result had been delivered. If you say "I am going to have abundance." Universe inconjunction with you with continue to put your abundance off into the future.
You are powerful and mighty. Know this. Feel this. Your thoughts, your feelings all matter. You are creating 24/7. You are in a living universe. Practice this. Feel this. What do you have to lose? Worst case scenario, what you want doesn't appear. You have enjoyed the passing of time, and feel better. Worry is the prayer for things not to work out in your life. Remember this and choose abundance.
