I had an AHa (otherwise known as DUH) moment earlier in the week. As usual I came across a terrific post on Facebook that just hit me and made perfect sense of something I had been struggling to understand, Abundance.
I was so simple and I am not sure why I hadn’t grasped this before. I mean Giselle and I have talked about Abundance more than once, but I never ‘got it’ until now. I know Giselle has told me this before but it never sunk in. I guess it is all about timing.
Abundance is enoughness!
I was thinking that Abundance meant unlimited or excess I guess. I know Abundance is unlimited so that may not be the right word. What I thought was I would have money falling out of every pocket, you know, enough so that $100 becomes pocket change, so money is never an issue. Because of these views, views that I didn’t even really understand that I had until now, I thought Abundance was a myth.
I have had an up and down week but I am still here and kicking. I have so much running through my brain lately but I am doing my best to not let it overwhelm me. My daughter and I are still doing our morning sharing of what we are grateful for and it is certainly helping throughout the day for me. I think more time is needed for her to really open up to it. Either way, it is a good exercise that we will continue to do. Now on to my thoughts for today.
NINERS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!! Yep I did just yell that. The Niners won an exciting NFC Championship game coming from 17 points down to take the lead in the 4th quarter and then hanging on for the win. They have not been to the Superbowl since the 1994 season so this has been a long time coming. They have been to the Superbowl 5 times before and have never lost. They will be facing the Baltimore Ravens and shooting for their 6th Superbowl Ring.
Baltimore beat New England which I love to see because I am not a Patriots fan and I really do not like Tom Brady. I will agree that he is a terrific QB, but I think he is big ol’ baby and sore loser. He throws fits when things don’t go his way. In my opinion he does not have class like Joe Montana.
Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, say, a consumer-oriented emphasis on what one wants or needs—and is currently receiving a great deal of attention as a facet of positive psychology. Gratitude is what gets poured into the glass to make it half full. Studies show that gratitude not only can be deliberately cultivated but can increase levels of well-being and happiness among those who do cultivate it. In addition, grateful thinking—and especially expression of it to others—is associated with increased levels of energy, optimism, and empathy. – Psychology Today
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, or more precisely feeling a lot of this lately. I’m not sure I really knew what gratitude truly meant until I started awakening to Spirit. I was certainly thankful for things but pure gratitude is another thing. It is more powerful and is a true feeling deep in my soul.
Sometime after my rebirth I began ending each day talking to Spirit, Mother Earth, and the Universe. I just share whatever is on my mind and I always state how grateful I am to have lived another glorious day. This wasn’t planned. It just sort of happened.
