#34 Abundance

Listen here

Today’s podcast is a continuation of a series of podcasts based on the new guide book and scorecard, Living Happy, Rich and Free After 60 which you can download for free at https://dreambigandbloom.com/guidebook/

This week we’re talking about Mindset #3: Abundance. 

But before we get into that, I wanted to make a clarification about last week’s podcast.

Last week, Wendy Solomon was my guest and she had a question about how to visualize her vision statement being accomplished. I shared a lot of tips and Wendy was eager to try them.

As I was reviewing the recording, it occurred to me that our discussion of so many tips might have made the visualization process seem complicated to the novice and I would never want to do that, because the reason I’m so passionate about the DreamBuilder Program is because it incorporates all the knowledge I’ve accumulated over the years and integrated it into a simple, do-able system that covers all the bases.  

The last thing I want to do is to overwhelm you with too much information!  Wendy is an advanced student and enjoys geeking out with me on a broad range of topics related to Dream Building but the DreamBuilder System is very simple.

The Simplicity of the DreamBuilder System

The main point to remember is that the reason for focusing on your vision in vivid detail and imagining it already accomplished is that

  1. It reprograms your subconscious mind and gets it on board with the idea of changing your thought patterns so you can think differently and act differently and

2. It raises your energy and makes you more receptive to guidance, synchronicities and opportunities.

Visualizing your dream already accomplished should be a fun process and make you feel good!

I’m all about making things simple, easy and fun!

The DreamBuilder Process is basically a matter of

  • staying focused on what you would love, by having a clear vision statement,
  • reading it daily, so you stay focused on what’s most important, 
  • seeing it accomplished so your subconscious accepts it,
  • taking action steps everyday to make it happen,
  • living as if it’s already accomplished, and
  • using a few simple tools to overcome the resistance of your primitive brain and your habitual programming — what we call your paradigms.

It’s a simple matter of

  • staying in faith with The Truth,
  • staying focused on the dream,
  • taking one step at a time, one day at a time,
  • living as if and
  • using the tools to heal things that impede the flow of energy. 

It’s a fun process too.

Mindset #3 is Abundance.

Now, this week we are moving on to Mindset #3 in the guide book and scorecard, Living Happy, Rich and Free After 60 which you can download for free at https://dreambigandbloom.com/guidebook/

The reason it’s so important to have an abundance mindset is that whatever you think about, talk about and focus on manifestes in your life.

Your thoughts create you feelings, your feelings affect your actions, and your actions create your results.

So if you believe in scarcity, you will not be successful in creating time and money freedom — in becoming Happy, Rich and Free.

Even if you become rich, you may not feel happy and free because of being worried about losing your money or because earning the money has compromised your relationships or your peace of mind.

Most of us have grown up with messages that programmed us to believe in scarcity.  Up until now you may not have even realized how much you are influenced by a belief in scarcity.  Once you start noticing it, you will be amazed.

A scarcity or poverty mindset is one of the main reasons that so many people settle for less than what they truly desire.  

Most people believe they don’t have the financial ability to do what they want to do and that makes it impossible. They may say things like, “how am I going to find the money to do that? “If the economy were better or my parents had taught me how to manage money, maybe I could do it.”

They are so controlled by a scarcity and lack mindset that they give up on trying to change things and just settle!

That’s why, when I’m coaching women on how to create their most powerful vision, I say, “don’t worry about the how right now, just focus on what you would love.

The Universe is, by nature, abundant.

The foundational principle of Mindset #3 is that The Universe is, by nature, abundant. The infinite number of planets, stars, solar systems, and galaxies within the universe is evidence of life’s abundance. 

There is never a scarcity problem. There may be a lack of awareness of abundance or an issue of distribution and flow, but there is never a lack of abundance. 

Since we are all connected to an Infinite Power and Presence, we do, by our very nature, have access to this abundance at any given moment, through the power of our mind. Wherever we direct our attention, our energy flows, and we will be abundant in that area. 

After you have allowed yourself to create a vision of the life you would truly love — you’ve planted the seed in your Garden, and your abundance mindset is like the water that nourishes the seeds you have planted.  It’s a resource that’s freely given to you.  You just need to appreciate it and use it.

Lack of financial prosperity in your life is like a drought. It’s evidence that the natural flow has been blocked. You have a kink in your hose. However, the good news is that, unlike a drought in nature, you have the power to change the situation in your life.

This is the foundational belief for creating an abundance mindset and there are two powerful practices we use in the DreamBuilder program for keeping you in alignment with the flow of the unlimited abundance of the Universe.

We transform any sense of lack or limitation or scarcity by

  1. Increasing our awareness of the fact that we live in an abundant Universe, and
  1. Expanding our giving. When we expand our giving, financial, emotional, mental (ideas), or physical, we become a vibrational match to the greater, freer, fuller, more expanded life we are calling in.

We increase our awareness of the fact that we live in an abundant universe by noticing the abundance already in our lives.

We do this by writing down at least 5 things we are grateful for every day.  As you do this exercise, you will begin to become aware of more and more things to be grateful for.  This shifts your focus and, as I say so often, “whatever you think about, talk about and focus on expands.”  The more abundance you notice, the more abundance you will notice.

This simple practice will 

  1. raise your spirits
  2. make feel more happy, rich and free in spite of current circumstances
  3. Raise your vibration so you attract more, and more.

As you relax and enjoy life more, you will be more receptive to new ideas from your Higher Self. Your connection to Source — to your creator is like the goose that laid the golden egg or the genie in the magic lamp.  Everything will be provided for you as you open up your mind to its guidance.  

I’ve talked about this in relation to Mindset #1: Your Power and you can see how the other mindsets all relate to this foundational principle. The other mindsets are all about getting our old habits of thinking out of the way and opening up to our good.

Practicing gratitude is a powerful daily practice for changing our thinking.

Expanding Your Giving

Practice #2 is Expanding your giving. When we expand our giving, financial, emotional, mental (ideas), or physical, we become a vibrational match to the greater, freer, fuller, more expanded life we are calling in.

So, you then decide on the specific ways you will give more of your time, talents, and money today. This cements your faith that there is always enough — always more available to you.  

You attract abundance through giving. As they say, “What goes around comes around.” You want to live in harmony with the Law of Circulation. Your awareness of the abundance around you and your faith in your ability to access it using your mind is expressed through your giving. 

These practices raise your energy and make you feel better about your life as it is now, even as you are taking steps to create more.

AND it makes it a fun process!

This also complements your daily practice in Mindset #1: Your Power — as you are living “as if” as much as possible, doing what you can, with what you can, from where you are. 

With your new abundance mindset you are functioning as a person of increase, giving value in every interaction with others, financial giving, emotional giving (listening), mental giving (ideas), or physical giving.  

You are transforming into that person who is living your vision — a person who is living with complete time and money freedom.  

How do you look now? How do you think? How do you act? How do you feel now that you are living like that person who has complete time and money freedom, who is able to give to others easily and joyfully?

When you have mastered the Abundance Mindset on the scorecard, you are in the habit of making a gratitude list every day.  You consider where you are feeling lack and you increase your giving in that area. 

  • If you are feeling a lack of love in your life, give more love to others.
  • If you are feeling a lack of attention, give attention to others
  • If you are feeling a lack of friendship, be a good friend to others.

You give that which you wish to receive.  

So often we tend to think in terms of getting first. “When I have more money, I will give more. “When I have more time I will be able to be a better friend”

But that’s like telling the wood stove to give you heat and then you will give it wood.  The laws of the Universe work is that you give first.  You pledge your faith in the Universe to support you. You prove it by taking action.  The more wood you feed the fire, the more heat you receive. 

And this is how the principle of tithing works. Tithing is a spiritual practice of giving 10% of your income to the place or people who feed you spiritually.  It originates with the idea that a farmer would store 10% of the seed from a harvest to plant for the next season.

As a spiritual practice it is an affirmation of your faith that you will always be provided for and sends that message clearly to your subconscious mind. 

This is a challenging concept for many people, so you can start with a smaller percentage — perhaps 2% and see how it works.  As we always say in the DreamBuilder Program, baby steps.

So you are transforming any sense of lack or limitation or scarcity by increasing your awareness of the fact that we live in an abundant Universe, and you are expanding your giving by tithing and making every interaction with people and every transaction one of increase. 

Proud Of

And one other very fulfilling practice is to make notes on your interactions and transactions and the ways you were a person of increase, including how that felt.

We call that your “proud of’s”.

This is a joyful, fun practice because you have recognized all the time and money freedom that you have in your life right now and you are sharing it with others.  

And at the same time, you are documenting all the ways you are attracting more and becoming a person of increase. 

Review

So to review…We transform any sense of lack or limitation or scarcity by:

  1. Increasing our awareness of the fact that we live in an abundant Universe, and
  2. Expanding our giving. When we expand our giving, financial, emotional, mental (ideas), or physical, we become a vibrational match to the greater, freer, fuller, more expanded life we are calling in.

Mastery

To master mindset #3: Abundance, every day, we make a gratitude list. We consider where we are feeling lack and we increase our giving in that area. We make every interaction with people and every transaction one of increase. We make notes on our interactions and transactions and the ways we were a person of increase, including how that felt. We tithe regularly.
