"Gratitude is abundance, complaint is poverty." I LOVE that. I grew up with a disdain (really thinly veiled jealousy) for people with money because that's how my mother talked about them. It's taken a long time and a lot of soul searching to change my thinking about it, and it must have worked because I've always been good with money once I was old enough to start earning my own.
You know what gets me into alignment with money--rap music! I know a lot of people are offended by it, but I think it's silly and fun because they talk about money in ridiculous hyperbolic ways. Why yes, I'd love to fly on my private jet with "ice" on my fingers while drinking Cristal. Or as Biggie Smalls said, "Birthdays was the worst days, now we sip champagne when we thirs-tay." Don't want to align with getting shot, so I'll just focus on the parts where they talk about money.
Exactly! They are just one of the means of exchanging energy. And they are fun.
I love that too Teri, to be outrageously abundant, we are best positioned to help others when our cup is overflowing !
i want dollars, lots of dollars .. ask and it is given ....
Think of the planets of our solar system. Jupiter and Saturn the two biggest, have the biggest gravitational pulls, and as a result, attract the most matter (moons, asteroid belts etc) to them. Your thought forms work in the same way; the ones you use the most have the biggest pull and attract the most of such matter to you. People who are wealthy, and have dollars, dollars, dollars, are the ones with the biggest abundance mindsets. They focus on wealth and abundance and line up energies that way.
Money isn't abundance, but to the western mind, it's the biggest part of it and the thing which most people manifest when they develop an abundance mindset. But you're right, abundance isn't just money, there is a lot more to it than that, and there are also spiritual aspects. Abundance is also good health, a happy home, true friends, a job you really enjoy doing, sunshine on your Hondas and so on. It's like working well for you, and gagets functioning well. Basically, more than just money, and when you cultivate an abundance mentality, you get all of these things to. When you see the Universe as your provider, rather than just the job you have, or your pension, abundance flows a whole lot better.
