9 Steps To Living Abundantly

Many of us are bowed down by life – stressed, short of time, tired, on a treadmill, knowing that this isn’t the way to live, but not knowing how to free ourselves up to live more fully, more abundantly. There are simple things we can do – they don’t take time or money – they take a change of attitude. Here are 9 of them:

1. Being totally financially honest – if you are not, this implies that there is not enough for you to have everything you need without dishonesty.

2. Creating a vacuum so that more good things can flow into it – don’t fill your life up with things you don’t really want. Ask yourself if you want each thing before you buy it. Don’t have abundant rubbish, live abundantly by seeking out the things and experiences that work for you in your core being.

3. Tithing is often associated with religion, but it is also possible to tithe in a non-religious context. This seems a really important aspect of living abundantly – every time you freely give money away, you are implying that you are confident that more will come – this is a BIG positive affirmation with a lot of power behind it. The traditional amount is 10% of your income. I’ve recommended this to lots of people, and they’ve told me that when they do this – magically – they seem to have more. I started with 10% but now I’ve increased it, because I’ve seen that the more I give away the more I get back, and the happier and more abundantly I live.

4. Being grateful for what you already have – focussing on the good that is already in your life. It’s easy to think about what you don’t have, but spend some time each day thinking about what you do have. Start each day by thinking of 5 things that you are grateful for – and express this out loud.

5. Resentment, jealousy, envy and self-pity interfere with the free-flow of abundance. If you are jealous or envious of someone, it implies that what they have is not available for you to have also. If you find it difficult to let go of these feelings, Bach flower remedies may help. Try the emedy ‘willow’ to counteract resentment and self-pity, or try ‘holly’ for envy, jealousy and greed.

6. Forgiving those that have wronged you is part of living abundantly. Holding on to your anger, however justifiable it may seem, keeps you stuck in the past, rather than going forward into a better future. If it’s difficult to let go of your negative feelings, try writing a letter expressing all your anger, hurt or envy. Write until you can write no more, and then burn it.

7. Being able to receive from other people. Being able to receive is healthy, but many people find it difficult. You may need to practice receiving. Think of the pleasure you get in giving. By not receiving generously you are denying other people the pleasure of giving.

8. Realise that in general ‘good luck’ plays a very small part in people’s life. (If you put your faith in good luck, then you have to accept the possibility of bad luck too.) People who put their faith in ‘good luck’ often spend their lives waiting for things to happen. People who don’t believe in luck go out and make things happen.

9. Believing that there is enough money, food, love, etc. in the world to meet everyone’s needs to live abundantly. I left this one till the last, because it can be very hard to believe when faced with war and starvation in the newspapers and on the TV, but a lot of this anger and need is caused because people who have do not believe they have enough, because they substitute money and food for all the other abundance of life. Do your bit to correct that imbalance and start living a life that recognises there are inequalities and shortages, but recognises that we can correct that so we all have what we need.

The secrets of law of attraction

There are a lot of secrets to the law of attraction. There are also just as many wonders to the theory. For those who have no idea about the law of attraction, you will find that it is a theory based on something that Buddha said. It is thought that you can make your own reality up through positive energy. You will find that there are some people who believe and some people who stand strongly against it. As for the history of the theory, there are so many secrets kept.

Since the early twentieth century there have been dozens of books written based on the theory or law of attraction, and many authors became famous for the topic. In fact, there are books ranging from the topic of positive thinking to the actual law of attraction. In the beginning of 2006 a movie was released based on the teachings of the law of attraction and there are many people who think that the secrets of the theory are enough to think it’s ridiculous.

When it comes to the “secrets” you will find that there is a lot of skeptics. It’s been called superficial because it teaches people that anything is possible, with hard work. This is also something that you may hear your parents say to you, however, the theory conflicts with most Christianity. One of the biggest secrets of the theory is the fact that it was written to become part of a gospel in the Bible, however, certain priests of Christianity condemned it based on treason to God. It is even stated in the Ten Commandments that “Thou Shall Not Worship False Gods”. Some people who are extremists believe that the secrets and premise of the theory is that you act as if you are God and in control of your own destiny and not something that God has predetermined. However, when you read the theory, you will find that it has nothing to do with any God. It has to deal with the fact that you need to lean on yourself and learn how to stand on your own. You will also find that it means that you can do anything you want to, but you need to have faith. At least point it is easy to say that faith does not mean in God, or the Universe, or the Constellations. It means you have to trust yourself; you have to believe in yourself.

The true secret behind the theory is that you need to push yourself to be better, you need to be able to encourage yourself to be better as well. You will find that there are a lot of things that you may want to consider when it comes to the law of attraction, because you will find yourself along the way. The theory will be difficult to press on at times; however, you will be able to change your attitude towards your life and others in general. You will find that there are a lot of positive benefits from the law of attraction theory.

You will also notice that the progress and success that you have with the law of attraction will depend on how committed you are. You will find that there are a lot of things that you are going to do to find success, but the feelings of accomplishment that you will get from meeting your goals will be well worth all the trouble and difficulty that you have. Keep in mind that the grass always seems greener on the other side, but sometimes it really is. You may be able to find true happiness and success when you learn the history of the theory and how you can properly apply the theory to your life.
