The first thing you need in order to attract abundance into your life is a clear understanding of what abundance really is.
Most people have collapsed the concept of abundance with the condition of having money. But true abundance encompasses so much more than material possessions or luxuries. Consider this dictionary definition:
“An overflowing fullness or ample sufficiency; profusion; copious supply; superfluity.”
Satisfaction, fulfillment, joy, ease, happiness, creativity, compassion, freedom, love, and wellbeing… Literally every feeling-state that any of us aspire to experience is an expression of abundance. And the way to attract abundance in all her manifestations is to step into an abundant mindset.
There are fundamentally only two ways to approach life. One is with a consciousness of lack, through which we perceive everything as scarce and in limited supply. And the other is through the lens of abundance, in which we acknowledge that there is an infinite supply of love, wellbeing, joy, and creative resources.
You cannot attract abundance into your life while at the same time you’re complaining about lack. To bring in abundance in all forms, you must raise your vibration to the frequency where abundance resides.
Here are 3 energy mastery principles you can begin applying today to attract greater abundance into your life:
Abundance Principle #1: To attract greater abundance, notice and appreciate every place you find evidence of flow.
Like everything else in the universe, abundance is an energy. Specifically, it’s a fast-moving energy that flows fast and free – meaning there is very little resistance within its vibration. In every person and environment, there are areas of flow and areas of restriction. And the more we place our focus on the areas of flow, the more abundance we magnetize to ourselves.
Notice all the places – in your body, your mind, your environment, your life – where there already exists a feeling of flow. In other words, energy is moving, life force is thriving, you have enough of what you need, and things are working well.
Maybe you’re someone who’s blessed with an abundance of physical stamina or mobility. Or you might have access to an abundance of good ideas. Is there an abundance of peace or wellbeing in the natural environments where you commonly walk, bike or drive? Notice the presence of flow in these areas!! And acknowledge that they are all manifestations of abundance.
Abundance Principle #2: Prioritize your mindset over your circumstances.
Ordinary people allow their current reality to dictate their mindset. A deliberate creator aligns with the mindset that is most conducive to the reality we wish to create.
This is perhaps the most important thing to understand about how thoughts become things: Energy is primary, and all manifestations follow energy. To attract greater abundance into your life, you must first cultivate an abundant mindset. And oftentimes, this means focusing beyond what has already manifested.
It’s easy to feel abundant when money is rolling in, but how do you achieve this feeling state when the bills are piling up? In these moments, we have to look beyond the conditions that have already manifested and find the unconditional essence of our desire. To do this, ask yourself why you desire abundance and focus on these essential feelings.
Abundance is not a condition. It’s a mindset and a state of being. By focusing on all that you do have and looking for the positives in any situation, you invite more good into your life. Honing this skill is what makes us deliberate creators. We become visionaries who chart our own courses instead of travelers who simply follow the paths that have already been charted. As author Tony Robbins notes, “You never get beyond scarcity, you have to start beyond it.”
Abundance Principle #3: Be purposeful about your mood
The mood or energy we carry with us is an all-powerful communicator. To increase the flow of abundance into your life, deliberately generate the energy of it.
Allow the energy – of vitality, of prosperity, of success – to inform the way you move; the way you speak, and the choices you make. Remember that all tangible manifestations originate in the unseen world of energy. Begin offering your energy on purpose, and notice the different ideas, experiences, and results that come about as a result.
Think about wearing the energy of abundance like you would wear a piece of clothing. You can even imagine taking off the clothes that represent scarcity and donning a brand-new, perfectly-tailored suit. You’re stepping into a new realm of possibility, a new bandwidth of frequency.
Attracting greater abundance is about realizing that you already are, and already have, more than enough. In this moment, you are perfect, whole, and complete just as you are. If you take a step back, you’ll quickly see that you have far more sufficiency than lack in your life. You have plenty more to feel satisfied about than to be dissatisfied about. You have far more reasons to feel good than to feel bad. Remind yourself of this daily by practicing these 3 principles, and watch the fulcrum of your experience shift into one of greater sufficiency.
