We’ve all heard the famous quote by Mahatma Gandhi that tells us to “be the change you want to see.” Well the same goes for abundance and everything else for that matter. You have to live in the energy of the thing you desire in order for it to materialize. That’s why I titled my book Being Joy™, because I truly believe that you cannot look for joy. You must remember it and then embody it or “be” it.
This month’s theme for helping you remember your joy is Be Abundant. You see, we live in an abundant universe and in order to attract more of what you want you must be prepared to see it in everyone and everything. Feel abundant in all you do. Be abundant in all you are.
Trust me. When you start to think this way more of the time, good things will happen. It’s just the way the law of attraction works. And it works every time.
Have you ever noticed that when you become preoccupied with thoughts about what you don’t have, it’s really hard to attract what you do want? It’s because you’re focused on the lack of the thing you want. And the universe is simply providing what it is that you’re thinking about. I know it’s a very simplified way of looking at the law of attraction, but in actuality it isn’t that complicated. If you just “be” it, then it must “be”.
Ok, so now that you get it, how can you shift your thoughts away from lack and into the “being” state of abundance? Here’s a great method that might work for you.
I like affirmations. I remember many years ago when my father was quitting smoking (way before there was a big public push to be a non-smoker), he used to put little 3 x 5 cards with affirmations all throughout the house. One on the bathroom mirror, one in his wallet, one on his desk. When post-it notes came in, he had them everywhere. He swore by them. And they worked. Even though my mom still smoked, he never started again. And that was before the patch or the gum or other smoking cessation techniques were available.
He used that method for many other things as well. When he had a goal, he would write himself an affirmation. When he wanted to improve something he felt was out of balance in his life, he would use affirmations. And the “being abundant” part of my father became a natural part of his persona.
Now, I’m not saying he became a wealthy man or attained all of his dreams. Far from it. But I know he died a more contented man because of his profound belief in possibilities and he remained an eternal optimist up until the end. I’m so grateful for his genes!
If you’ve never used affirmations before, here’s a cool link that I provided in my monthly newsletter Joy Matters this month that you might want to take for a spin.
And by the way, if you haven’t already signed up to get my free newsletter where I provide a chapter from my book every month along with some other cool resources like this affirmation link, then you can sign up on my website.
I’ll leave you now with an affirmation I wrote for my Being Joy Medicine Cards:
Until next time, keep your frequency high, your mind open, and your joy ever expanding!
Love from your Joy Mama,
